So when I DM, I don't consider the experience complete unless it comes with sweet tunes. I carry a soundbar in my bag just to put in front of my GM screen. This means I have a large collection of music selected for playing before/after/during game night. I'm going to share it here, bit by bit, as my own small way of giving back for all the other good stuff people have shared with me.

I've drawn music from just about every source and style I could think of. I hope you find something new, or something you hadn't considered. Be warned I specifically try to avoid tunes too iconic to maintain immersion, so you won't find
Star Wars, Lord of the Rings or Final Fantasy here.

The Art of Segovia (Low key, classical guitar music. Good inobtrusive general background.)
Plate Mail Games (Not music. Environmental Audio loops. You want them.)
Conan the Barbarian (Original '80s movie) (Basically the unofficial D&D Soundtrack)
Conan the Destroyer (sequel to above)

- something in your game triggered some LGBT flamewar
- it's not important whether the "discussion" is meaningless or not
- important thing is that it halts the game and breaks the immersion

Question: how to quickly deal with such crap, terminate the discussion and return to the game?

Anonymous 14/11/23(Sun)22:54 No. 72572

Treat it like anything else that interrupts your game session, and that honestly varies by group. Some groups are beer and pretzel style just hanging out groups and getting side tracked about movies/tv/politics/old stories is half the fun, other groups it is all about immersive role playing and such distractions are not welcome no matter the topic.
If you want to bring everyones focus back to the game at hand, just communicate that desire with your group. Something like "Lets curb this conversation until the game session is over and we can talk this over some food or drinks, till then lets keep in character and do what we got together to do and that is roleplay."

I forget myself sometimes and talk about politics and religion with my game group, but for the most part those topics are best kept to yourself or internet forums where opinions don't hurt friendships.

Anonymous 14/11/23(Sun)23:36 No. 72577

If you're the GM, during the middle of the distraction:

"Hey guys you see that?"
Regardless of anyone making a spot check
"Rocks are falling!"

Anybody who doesn't make a spot check or rolls to evade dies; they can continue their discussion while rolling new Lvl-1 characters. Everyone else continues playing as normal.

Dat feel, when people react with disgust when you introduce slutty captors and guardians to "locked up" scenario.

Dat feel, when you realize that political-correctness raised pussies, coming from the oversexualized world, see nothing wrong in cold-blood killing, but have trouble with guardians suggesting some help for sexual favors.

Dat feel, when RPGs are not about trying new possibilities anymore. Especially disturbing, questionable, provocative ones.

Dat feel, when there's yet another game within the game - predicting whether something may or may not trigger a violent outburst of your players.

Fuck, I'm old.

Don't rise to the insults man. OP clearly a ω- male.

What's probably happened is he's tried to engage in sexual situations unaware that the idea of 'role-playing' with him is distasteful to the rest of the group, so in order to get some sexual interaction (at this point any sexual interaction with RL people even in the realm of a ttg will suffice) he's forced it into the game world to which they have reacted with hostility.

What's worse is OP refuses to explain the specifics of the situation because he is oblivious to the why of it all and believes his actions are perfectly "normal". I may be wrong though, he might actually be aware of his flaws and to arrogant to admit it which might mean he's actually a ω+ male; but I doubt it.

I've been playing DnD 4e for about 3 years now. Got lots of characters to epic destiny blah blah blah. I played a lot. But I see everyone talking about 3.5e. Is 3.5 better? More enjoyable? Please halp

Unfortunately, your (and every other similar complaint) is completely invalid. Yes, the system allows one to build a massively overpowered character, but, as in EVERY RPG on the market, the GM has final say. And with this fancy new contraption called the "internet" it's not to difficult to find those combinations that lead to one character overpowering the the rest of the PCs and all the GM has to do is say "no." When asked why it's a simple "it's too powerful of a combination." The fact is that 3.x/PF has lead to a massive amount of source materail allowing anyone who's willing to put the time into it to play the game exactly how they want to play it (yes, the older incarnations allowed this as well, but it was more GM's caveat than supported rules.)
One of my DMs in the time of 2nd Ed. had the best saying in the world, one I carried over into my own 3.x games: Not in my dungeon you don't. Simply put: Yes, I understand that the rules may support your options, but I feel they may be too powerful/convoluted/open-ended/etc., and I'm not going to allow it in my game. And THIS is the one thing that I feel has been lost during the OGL explosion, everyone was innundated by all the options that they lost sight of the One Rule of RPGs: It's your game, play it how you want . . .

If you want the challenges that come from having these powerhouses running amok in your setting, then allow the players to build said powerhouses. If you prefer more roleplaying in your games, then let the players know (when the campaign starts) and allow them to build those types of characters. If you want a more S&S styled feel to your games, then go through and eliminate the rules/feats/spells/classes/magic items/etc. that detract from that feel and, again, let your players know during character creation.

This, I feel is the biggest flaw in 4E, the core mechanics of the game don't support the elimination of aspects that detract from the style/theme/feel of (apparently) a vast group of gamers, and leads to a harder time modifying the system to fit your concept (unless your concept is simply generic fantasy focused on combat.)

Anonymous 14/11/21(Fri)00:29 No. 72428

D&D 3e and Pathfinder give more character customization, and significantly more over-the-top magical effects - many of your class abilities can be for things primarily outside combat. It's also much less of a tactical game than 4e is. In addition to that, it doesn't have the "Refluff and use the same mechanics" philosophy that 4e does, it has much more of a "each thing should have its own rules" approach. Combat is occasionally more deadly than in 4e, as there are some instant death effects, and some non-instant death effects that can do enough damage to kill some characters outright. Like 4e, there are trap options. The trap options are some of the things people hate about the edition the most.
Unlike 4e, there is a significant imbalance between the mundane classes and the non-mundane classes. A well built wizard can make a well built fighter feel completely useless. A poorly built wizard will look pathetic next to that well built fighter. The rogue and monk struggle to keep up no matter what else the other players are playing.

And 2.x/5e tend to give you a similar focus to 3.x, but don't have nearly as much high-powered magic.

My preference is 3.x - specifically Pathfinder, but there *are* problems with it. The best version of "D&D 3.x" I've seen is Kirthfinder.

Anonymous 14/11/21(Fri)00:32 No. 72429

And one of the biggest downsides of 3.X/PF is how much work it is to make NPCs/ Monsters.
