Tabletop Gaming/RPGs / Long shot, Anyone still rolling dice?
« on: July 21, 2014, 10:09:09 AM »
Just wondering if anyone is still enjoying their table top time, I know these aren't as frequented as normal, thought it would be fun to find out what people are playing yet if anything.

Oh, Hi everyone :)

Tabletop Gaming/RPGs / Books and Recommendations
« on: October 28, 2008, 01:04:16 PM »
Since this forum is deader than a funeral I figured I'd start posting some information on 3.0 + 3.5 books that are entertaining and pretty cheap to get a hold of now a days. Today's books is one of my favorites and probably one of the best reference books you'll find for challenging encounters in dungeons and pretty much any scenario!




The book of Challenges

It's basically a in depth look at puzzles, riddles, traps and other kind of dreary things you'd find in various dungeons / crypts / confined spaces. A lot of my adventures when it comes to dungeon crawling uses this book for the riddles and traps. Most definitely a great read and you can pick the book up from eBay for about 8$ + shipping. I do have an e Book of it in case anyone still running a game would like to take a peak at it. Even if you're not running a game any past player will cringe when looking at it, and it is a fun read.

I give it a 8 / 10

Great information
Easy to read

The only downside is it is a short book and the adventure spans aren't really setup for 1st level characters (though there are some pre made templates for it)

Tabletop Gaming/RPGs / Star Wars RPG!
« on: April 07, 2008, 11:46:48 AM »
Well the local comic shop I work part-time for has recently started a Star Wars campaign in honor of the new 4.0 system released and the to help spread the new system out for business I decided to jump in. The DM is quite old school with his rolling system, 4D6 keep the top 3, no re rolls, and you roll straight down the chart for stats, no switching them around. I actually rolled quite well, before modifiers of race and class I'll jot them down.

STR - 18
DEX - 14
CON - 12
INT - 14
WIS - 14
CHA - 7 (Ouch)

Looking at the str and dex it was obvious I was going to play a fighter class, but what, ladies and gentlemen I present you The Enforcer



Being I've always been partial to the wookie and the fact that I'm playing a fighter, or what in the Star Wars book is considered a soldier, I figured a wookie just makes sense. So after modifications these are my new stats!

STR - 22
DEX - 12
CON - 14
INT - 12
WIS - 12
CHA - 5 (YEEEOOOW)

So basically due to my nature of a low freaking charisma and the fact intimidations and a lot of other useful checks are based on charisma, I got added a perk of me being able to run intimidate checks if I can show a feat of strength. So I basically am missing partial fur, I took the flaw of only having one eye. So I wear a sweet eye patch until I can scavenge enough money for bionics.

We've already ran our first mission which was to rescue me from the mines of a planet since I was slaved out. I fortunately was able to get a mining pick in my possession after ripping a couple of droids apart. On a side note my entire party is scared to death of me right now due to the nature of my strength and a few good intimidate checks.

So The Enforcer and his party are on our way to a distant planet (campaign is set pre-clone wars) in order to pick up work as smugglers. I took quite a few points into mechanics and piloting so I've been pretty much setup as the pilot of our freighter we stolen borrowed and kinda of defaced and redid all the licensing and tags for it. My next game is this Thursday so I'll keep an update on it.

I'm sure most of you have seen this but VGCats put out a humorous video dealing with the ending song played in Portal, it's addicting as all hell but the video has some funny parts.

Which coincidently the top limerick from limerickdb.com is this:

When the plot was uncovered,

That sadly the cake was a lie.

Just out of curiosity do you purchase your non painted miniatures locally or is there a place online you order through?

Tabletop Gaming/RPGs / Gurps
« on: January 29, 2008, 04:55:07 PM »
A universal RPG system designed by Steve Jackson (The creator of Munchkin) Gurps uses a 3d6 system instead of your normal D20 game. It's built around hackmaster a lot. Yet so far its quite enjoyable we have a great gamemaster, who basically has stretched a paragraph introduction adventure into once a week for the last four months of gaming. Anyone interested a lot of the stuff can be found online and its quite easy to get a character generated and played. Check it out!

Delve deep into the dark labyrinth of what is version 2.0 of the original RPG system. While it does take the time to create a character (creation runs around 2hours to make or so) It's quite in depth and takes  some of the imagination out of background stories, as you roll for certain scenarios during character creation and tie it in later. One of the biggest things this version of role-playing offers is quirks and flaws . Also the fact your character can actually die during character creation is quite funny. I've played this system over the last few months and have really enjoyed it, read more about it at:

The only thing I can say about this movie is, Fucking wow!

Plot line was great, the CGI animation transition was slick as hell and overall had some comedy to it, totally awesome movie, I gave it a 10/10. Wasn't disappointed at all.

Tabletop Gaming/RPGs / Senzar
« on: June 11, 2007, 12:10:05 AM »
Currently playing a campaign based off of senzar ( http://www.senzar.com ) unfortunately it was a very badly criticized game. I'm playing a Vyshe Necromancer currently and I'm having bookoo loads of fun with it.

Our last encounter we found ourselves in a Stonehenge type area with a huge prehistoric skeleton laying in the field. While the rest of the group was getting head-to-head combat with a group of demons I stood back and reanimated the skeleton to its former body and basically had a huge ogre stripteasing in the middle of the field. Unfortunately all the other characters had lechery and lost their constitution rolls so while they were being picked up and dropped by a huge demon in the sky I thought it'd be funny to go ahead and use my cast disease on it. Unfortunately nothing looked good until I browsed through and realized I could curse it with the runs. I won my roll save over the DM and the demon basically shat on the entire party and because of that fact it lost control over its wings and plummeted to the ground while our main damage dealer of the group rolled a nat 20 and pwned the wtf out of it.

Needless to say we're playing again Tuesday and our DM basically said he has a grudge against me now since this is the second time I've made his NPC die an embarrassing death. I'll keep you guys updated but for now I've been having hella fun with this campaign.

So i just got back from the Broadway hit Cats!. Now as much as I try to associate myself with a variety of culture. I was more clueless then when bush showed up in Vietnam. It was a neat experience and I can actually say I've seen a professional musical now... My life is complete?
