    There are plenty of other RPGs other than D&D

    oh here comes crazy old man solar with his wacky ideas

    well

    surely that would be the other way around

    as back in the day you had DnD and that's it

    and then more stuff came out

    until right now where there are more RPGs on the market than ever before?

    Seriously if t is a real shame that DnD is, like, the only face of roleplaying, because DnD probably puts some people off that might otherwise like all manner of great RPGs

    Also Gamma World seems like a ton of fun.

    I should run a Gamma World adventure inspired by Dragon Ball Z

    it sounds stupid enough to work

    The rest of us with our wacky ideas really don't get enough credit, and I think it really is a shame that Solar is the face of these wacky ideas, as he probably puts some people off that might really like wacky ideas.

    I'm having a blast in my current Gamma World game.

    I'm playing a Telekinetic Frankenstein's Monster. Who runs a Fix-it shop when he isn't out crushing the skulls of Badders and Porkers with telekinetic fists.

    Not sure if it actually happened, but for some reason I remember him sprinkling a prostitute with glitter right after that.

    I kinda don't wanna watch it after for fear I'll find I'm making it up.

    Oh my god I can't waaaaaait

    Signed up for three sets and two packs of this add-on a while back

    Unpaired of course, because that's a stupid amount of money to pay to have someone dry brush stuff when I can do it in a single weekend

    how many games that take place inside simple masonry structures / classic "dungeons" do you really want to play

    I came up with a fantasy setting in a particularly boring lecture once where everyone lived in giant super-dungeons

    like fantasy hive-cities, I guess

    they were built by the Gods to be giant weapons against the Titans, and the world was basically a frameworld of God-cities connected by a celestial framework surrounding a giant portal to all the elemental realms that powered the whole system. All the inbetween world bit was sort of an after thought that got filled in over time for not much reason other than because I guess, and all the various species were created by the Gods to maintain their giant staging platform for war against the outer darkness.

    So for that, I guess

    it might be pretty good

    otherwise though no I agree it seems slightly limited

  • Blake TBlake T Do you have enemies then? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.Registered User regular
    Yeah, you could always use a bit of imagination. They give a bit of vertical depth and you could always make say a path with the tiles and overlay it on a green board so it's a forest setting and make a ruin or something.

    Or you could make it into external setting of a town.

    That's still you hurting them, rather than them being forced to hurt themselves, though?

    Think about it for a second, what's going through your head in two alternate scenarios:

    1) Some dude walks into the room and throws a magic fireball at you.
    2) Some dude walks into the room and now you have this uncontrollable compunction to shove the woodworking chisel sitting on the bench there through your own neck. You don't want to hurt yourself, obviously, but despite being fully conscious and otherwise totally in control of your faculties, you absolutely cannot stop your hand from picking up the chisel and slowly working it through your own skin, musculature, artery...

    It also just broke 1.25 mil fingers crossed it'll hit 1.35 and we will get those sweet stairs.

    The stretch goal after that is pretty shit though.

    I suppose this would be a bad time to tell you about the kickstarter that Itar's Dungeon has up for dungeon terrain and accessories. The walls are about half the height of the Dwarven Forge walls, but all their pieces (walls, floors, and accessories) are half the price of DF's equivalents, and they have a lot of odd little accessories available. Some of the pieces look, well, not so great - you can tell which pieces came out of a 3D printer - but overall there's some nice stuff in there that isn't in DF's kickstarter, and it looks like the pieces they have as add-ons in the kickstarter are cheaper there than they would be if you bought them through their store directly.

    Honestly, I think I prefer dwarves forge's better, but I like the dungeon dressing pieces more.
