Destroy All Monsters (Paul LaFarge)
Dungeon Alphabet (Michael Curtis)

Holy fuck!

Thank you, Bro!


Is old school stuff (Gygax) still relevant?

Anonymous 14/11/27(Thu)04:15 No. 72826

Firstly, everyone should _play_ Fiasco to become a better improviser.
'The Lazy DM' (by Sly Flourish) is a good one if you don't already minimize your work as a GM.
'Kobold Guide to Game Design' series is good for the inexperienced GM. Every GM is the designer of his own campaign.
You should also read/play/GM different types of games to see how to do things differently and how the system affects the game. As a big fan of D&D, I think D&D's system teaches really bad habits.
RPG cons are a great place for trying new stuff with new people.

This is not Anti-Piracy plea or something. I'd simply love to hear your honest opinion on this:

When it comes to RPG books sharing:
1. I share only overpriced, hard to get, popular or free stuff.

Example: Paranoia XP, "yet another splatbook" by Paizers or Sorcerers.

2. I restrain myself from sharing things which are like 20$ per whole system. Same thing with things coming from some tiny company/one guy.

Example: Cakebread & Walton, Dreamscarred.

It's not important why. I'm just curious in your own limitations (providing there are some).

I'll share anything I have.

If I like it I'll buy it. If I play it regularly then I (or someone else in our group) owns a copy. We often one-shot things and most of it ends up going in the /eh/ pile and gets forgotten about. Try before you buy is probably the best way to describe my mentality.

More publishers should put out one-shot adventures for free.

Q-25!UbWWYPj9XY 14/11/26(Wed)22:55 No. 72811

I grab lots of stuff just to check it out. Don't use most of it. The stuff that I usually share is old, out of print, and impossible to find. I don't consider price ever.

Anonymous 14/11/27(Thu)04:06 No. 72825

I share everything and download most new games for perusal BUT if I use something, I always buy it.

Things are kinda in flux but a relaunch would probably help things out a little. Since most of the old thread is broken now.

These are the files drops for now.

Is there any RPG which takes place in the universe of Command & Conquer? Alternatively, which one seem like a good choice for running it?

I thought about A Time of War, since there are some similarities and possibility to introduce giant machines from different Battletech games...

Anonymous 14/11/26(Wed)04:34 No. 72757

A Time of War would be my choice. Everything is there except the flavour.

The 1979 alien and reverse jointed knees and a transparent dome on its head.

That version is based on the one seen in Aliens (1986).

Any reason why you didn't make your request in the 2200+ post Request Thread stickied at the top of the page?

Any reason other than the fact that you're clueless fucking douchebag, that it.

Yes. Stefan has it in his trove. Ask him.

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.
