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!
Grab a big bag of Cheetos and some 'Dew on the way over, it's the [Tabletop Games Thread]
yeah, that's right. It's a six-player game and when you get knocked out as an Empire you start playing as the Terrorists. You make all your money from securing oil supplies.

You guys want I should do a play by post of this sometime?
but I guess people also play DnD or whatever. In case you missed it from the last thread, there's this thing called a "System Resource Document" that basically means a document that has all the rules of any given system in one tidy place. People sometimes make them as websites.
Here is one for Pathfinder, which is a pretty awesomely updated version of 3.5 for anyone who grew up on 3.5 and is a total snob about hating on 4e. (It's me) There's a bunch of new classes with cool names like Inquisitor or Cavalier or Alchemist. Also there's a site that helps you run a Pathfinder game with a d20 modern ruleset, if you're into that kind of thing.
Check out this new hotness as well: There's a free SRD for Mutants and Masterminds. You know, that game everyone is always raving about where you basically get to design whatever kind of superhero or supervillain you want and then go around town saving people or ransoming cities for ten million dollars. Hahaha! Hahahahah! HAHAHAHA-ahem. Excuse me.
Let's talk about modelling our darkest fantasies of lust and violence by rolling a big pile of d6's on top of a stained dry-erase mat.
