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!

    Is there a dragon to slay in Fable 2?

    no, but there are these big trolls guy and, like, banshees

    dammit

    I want to play a western RPG and slay a dragon

    basically I either want to play 3e/PF or DA:O but I have no group for the former and I'm waiting for the complete release of the latter in a few months-ish

    I wanna play M&M and beat up Fing Fang Foom.

    Me too

    This is my problem with PbP format -- I always want to do grid-based tactical stuff.

    But resolving battle rules takes long enough in realspace...

    I...guess? That's part of any game. I ran 3e over IRC for ages, worked alright.

    Well for my part I just learned to avoid mechanics where the interpretation required a certain amount of work, and subsequently just felt like I was wasting my time when grouped with people who had achieved "system mastery."

    Not an issue with me, at least <3

    What is a good menu to bring with for a picnic? (There will only be one other person at this particular picnic. :winky: )
    So far I'm thinking:
    • Red Wine + cups
    • "Fancy" bread (focaccia?)
    • "Fancy" cheese (and also fresh mozzarella)
    • Salami/Prosciutto
    • Stuffed olives
    • Wheat Thins
    • Strawberries
    • and maybe some mixed nuts but I'm thinking to nix that.

    She said she'll bake something to bring along so I figure no 'dessert' item as that would be kind of a slap in the face. What should be added/changed?

    If they are in high school or previous that can be the start of a good career. EG: it can provide the impetus to actually learn how to program and such.

    Lots of good developers got their start, way back when, because they had "lots of great ideas" and then actually learned what was involved in making them happen.

    Yeah, if I ever did Star Wars: Saga or 4e or something, it would have to be like that.

    Descent is the very worst possible example for something like this -- custom D6 with symbols on them, deck of cards for the "DM" dude, interrupts, yadda yadda.

    It's mostly that one session of Descent a week is not enough. I want more sessions of everything!

    why don't you just pick up some ten year-old D&D game on the cheap

    if you mean the ie games, I've played all of those

    the only one I haven't played would be nwn2, which I guess is an idea-ish

    Have you played all the old SSI D&D games? Those are some good stuff and you are way too young to have cought them when they were new. Shouldn't be hard to find them if you poke around.

    The two Dark Sun games in particular are very good (Shattered Lands and Wake of the Ravager). The classic Pool of Radiance series is neat (Pool of Radiance, Curse of the Azure Bonds, Secret of the Silver Blades, Pools of Darkness). There are two Buck Rogers games based on the same engine.

    The Savage Frontier games (Gateway to the Savage Frontier and Treasures of the Savage Frontier) have a slightly more advanced engine and more dialogue.

    Oh and Forgotten Realms Unlimited Adventures lets you make your own games in that engine (like a 2d Neverwinter Nights).
