Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Fuck whatever we were playing, let's get ready for some goddamn DARK SUN

Do you suddenly feel awkward? Have zits spontaneously sprouted on your face? Does the mere thought of the opposite sex make your palms go sweaty?

It's okay. You're in the tabletop gaming thread!


We talk about all kinds of games, here! Hell, we'll even talk about board games!

Utsanomiko comes in with even more wonders and horrors, bringing us this lovely Wuthering Heights RPG!

Wuthering Heights

Orikaeshigitae made this kickass Victorian styled character sheet for D&D, if you have a need of such things: http://orikaeisnakedbut.iseenothing.com/victorian_sheet.pdf


Some of us run online games, because we don't have friends in real life because we're huge nerds. Here's a sampling:

Glossolalia, by DE?AD. Based largely on Risus, I think, this is a play by post relatively ridiculous freeform game. It is probably accepting new players.

Dungeons and Dwarves, by me (Quetzi). A D&D 4e game where everyone is a dwarf. Laid back, but still fairly regimented play by post.

The Paranormal Defense Division, a Mutants and Masterminds game that I run on Tuesday nights in the SE vent channel. Ridiculous and pulpy and mildly Hellboy inspired, only with more communists. It is perpetually accepting new player applications, talk to me about it.

Something Marshmallow runs in Ventrilo and Maptools, possibly on Fridays? It's D&D 4e, and I think it's fairly laid back about it, but that's about all I know.

Let me know if you want anything added to this.

    Kobold?

    Weak man.
    For example, a slovenly trollop offers herself to a strapping young adventurer if and only if he can expediently say a tongue-twister of her choice. Driven by hormones, the young male agrees, and asks what is the tongue twister. The courtesan challenges "Huge hung hero hunks hastily hump horny heaving hot whores. How 'bout it, huh?"

    This is better than DnD.

    4e is so good bro

    Also M&M dudes I just had the best idea ever on how to stat out Spike

    It makes him like level 12 or 13 to pull off, but it's so fucking worth it

    Didn't we fight against a ridiculously high-leveled enemy once?

    edited July 2009
    Hmm

    I can't think of anything

    Technically the Lovecraftian monstrosity the Aussies summoned was liiiike level 15, but I was playing it fast and loose with it because it wasn't the important part of the fight.

    Everything else has been between level eight and ten

    Like, first mission, the adult Gnoph Kehs were level eight, but if you'd fought them they probably could've destroyed you because there were a bunch. And those werewolves in the mad scientists castle were level ten, but all close quarters combat, so they could have done some damage if Midas hadn't been there.

    with Mutants & Masterminds, if a higher level enemy doesn't have bullshit high Impervious Toughness or is insubstantial or something, you can usually take them out with a lucky shot or two.

    The players in my M&M campaign are PL 10, and they have taken out PL 15 villains twice (once by trickery, mind you).

    also, ahem:

    does this ring any bells?

    because I have a copy of this fantabulous old game and I'd like to run it on SE in a very fast, loose manner, taking suggestions for all four player characters from anyone, playing out the most interesting/funniest/smartest/dumbest suggestions, photographing them, and then displaying the results from the turn all at once

    is this a good idea y/n?

    Oh

    Yeah Jormundgar is kinda high level I guess. I don't think I did vehicle stats right though, so probably not as bad as I thought before.

    But I'd statted him as level 10, but like 90 of that was submarine. He had no powers himself, he just had pretty decent brawler stats (but with no feats). And like 16 ranks in pilot submarine.

    Depending on how the consistent party thing goes I might start revealing enemy character sheets, but Jormundgar I might end up keeping anyways as more of a Spike counterpart than a Wheelman counterpart, because your enemies do need transport.

    so basically like the X-Com Let's Play?

    that sounds like a fucking amazing idea.
