    This implies that dwarves don't make good wizards.

    I'm really glad to be playing D&D again. It is really super fun with a great group. Actually, if anybody's interested in my Gamma World campaign, this is what happened last session:
    The party of five are:
    • Moren Wrathwall, a Doppleganger Mind Coercer.
    • Lichael Dingtray, a Pyrokinetic Empath.
    • Tally Youngblood, a Hypercognitive Giant.
    • Idafox, a Mind Breaker Felinoid.
    • Oryx, a Plant Cockroach.

    They have been tasked with travelling to London (titled Ye Olde London to the chagrin of one of my players who is a history buff) to retrieve the Royal Crown for a mysterious benefactor. Since this was their first adventure I decided to simplify things a bit and give them two options of travel to the Formerly United Kingdom. By boat or by plane. (the former through the East? India Trading Company and the latter through United Airways)

    Both had their various pros and cons and the party chose to fly, they insisted the in flight movie was The Hobbit. I then gave them some background lore on the world of Gamma Terra, a post apocalyptic world where multiple realities, universes and timelines have collided into one another. I planned a simple encounter, pirates! Well, badger pirates and a Yexil. Since they took the plane, it was sky pirates who entered through the cargo bay/hold.

    The battle lasted about an hour and a half of real time. When the book says Gamma World is much deadlier than regular D&D, it really means it. By the end of the battle most of the players were dying or dead and using death saving throws. It was an intense battle with a few fantastic mistakes on their end. The battle started with Moren taking a crossbow bolt to the chest and losing half his health, and spiraled down from there with Tally jumping onto a crate and then almost immediately being knocked off and knocked prone by the Yexil. Idafox also didn't do well with a critical miss on his ranged attack, leading to him throwing a shuriken into his own foot. Oryx managed to miss two enemies with her entangling roots spell, but she did hit Idafox with it!

    Luckily, Lichael, the pyrokinetic carried the battle for the most part. She started with a ring that boosted her attack and defense rolls, and getting lucky with every overcharge roll led her to throwing fire around and doing quite a bit of damage to every enemy.

    Eventually, despite some of the party wishing to be diplomatic with the Yexil and convince him to turn on his crossbow wielding mace friends, Moren pushed for violence and Tally leaped onto the back of the Yexil allowing Idafox to swing his machete and finish off the Yexil.

    Their victory was short lived however. During combat another Yexil ate the pilot and half of the cockpit, sending the plane crashing into the English countryside. They have awoken in an inn, rescued by a man named George. They now find themselves in the village of Sandwich, Kent. (It used to be a town but a giant smashed a big chunk of it looking for its namesake)

    The first member to awaken was Moren who immediately interrogated the innkeeper to see if he was a Yexil. They've started to hate Yexils (they were especially perturbed that it can shoot lasers out of its eyes). In exchange for rescuing them, the innkeeper has asked them to help the village in dealing with a certain problem.

    End of their first session!

    Everyone deserves to play a party of Dwarven clan-mates at least once. The most fun I've had in D&D has been in parties with high Dwarf-Notdwarf ratios.

    Everytime an elf npc came up we would just roll our eyes, elbow each other and brush off whatever incredibly important information they had for us.

    Adventure hooks had to come from a tavern or they didn't come at all.

    The DM gave us an airship and we crashed it on purpose because it was unnatural that feet should rest above the air.

    Couldn't you have asked the bear first? Cast a spell to make there bear speak so you can ask it to sacrifice its self to save the poor lil children.

    A few friends and I started our first DnD campaign a little while back. We've been having a lot of fun with it; there's a main storyline, but we rotate the DM a bit so the main guy doesn't get burnt out. It's a lot of fun seeing how people approach both the RPing and DMing differently, it was my turn last week and I really enjoyed creating contingencies and trying to prod people along the main path I'd created when they'd fixate on tiny things that I'd just put in for flavour.

    I find it kinda boring and I'd rather play an interesting character with flaws than Supercool Perfectman

    Then you would love Hero; every character is designed with Complications such as being hunted by someone/an organization, having a distinctive feature (which may or may not illicit strong reactions), fears, etc. It really adds a fun layer to your character's backstory, as you can incorporate said backstory into these Complications and give them chances to actually come up and impede you in the campaign.

    Hero also lets you make basically any kind of campaign and character, too. We've done classic fantasy, sci-fi, modern day, zombie apocalypse, vikings, and are currently doing one set in "Fantasy Asia" (which is basically Avatar/Legend of Korra).

    Is there a store where I can make that exchange

  • InquisitorInquisitor Registered User regular
    I like Call of Cthulhu because you basically can't power game at all.

    Your stats are what you roll, you don't get to allocate them, whatever you get you get and then you try to scrape something together out of that.

    Arguably the only way to make yourself stronger would be to learn spells and stuff, good luck with your sanity though.

    And odds are your character will be dead next session anyway.

    Something like D&D though? I will definitely take some time to make sure my character is mechanically pretty good (and interesting) because odds are I am going to spend a lot of time in combat and other situations where the numbers of your character play a large role in success or failure and being a dead weight isn't exactly fun.

    If I remember correctly, hags are incredibly tough. And magicky. And mean.

    I just wish there were 3 ps4 games I wanted to buy. I ended up cancelling my preorder because there really wasn't even one that was actually exclusive.

  • DiarmuidDiarmuid History Will Absolve Me Registered User regular
    Yeah, I was gonna wait on split-gen stuff until I get a PS4.
    But it looks like differences between PS3 & PS4 Black Flag are pretty much just cosmetic, which probably means I'm getting it much sooner.

    I thought this was actually a good kotaku article:
    http://kotaku.com/the-ps4-launch-minus-the-hype-1450976276

    If you strip out cross-gen/PC games, 'launch window games' and ports of PS3 games, the exclusive lineup is basically Knack, Killzone, and Resogun. As someone with a good gaming PC, there's just not much to make me run out and get a PS4 right away.

    yeah for about the same price as a PS4, i could just upgrade my PC, and neither console has any exclusives that I would want.

    Yeah. Now that I'm upgrading my PC, I'm in a position where, for the first time since the Atari 2600, I'm not really interested in getting a console.

    Yeah I'm not getting either console at launch (or even maybe a year into it), but the reason if I ever get a system it will be a ps4 is the price point and the indie scene. I don't really care about the big games at this point.

    2014 will really be the time when the games start hitting

    Early next year we'll be getting InFamous, Destiny, Titanfall, and Watch Dogs

    Sometime next year we can expect Dragon Age 3, Transistor, The Division, The Witcher 3, and maaaaaaaaaaaaaybe Final Fantasy 15?

    Having said that, I'm interested to try out the controllers to see which one I like more for plugging into my PC

  • ScudoScudo Registered User regular
    My PC is just a video card upgrade away from being pretty slick again, and the 770 just went on sale...but my gut says to hold out for the next crop of Nvidia/AMD cards, since those will probably have a better shot at running PC ports at high settings over the next couple of years. I know the most impressive looking game going on at X1/PS4 launch is Battlefield 4 and a 770 would handle that fine, but I'm thinking of the stuff that come out 2 years from now with inflated system requirements.
