All requests go here. Request threads outside of this may be deleted/banned.

1.)Label your uploads legibly so they can be searched easier. Shit like "R0tt3d C@pe$" is not acceptable. Leave at least one word without symbols.

2.)Small off topic discussion is fine but trolling, arguing, and generally being a dick will result in a ban.

3.)Because the thread fills up fast and it's hard to mod it, report dead links and shitposting.

Go wild.

I've been curious to try the Open Combat skirmish game. I even tried to download it from their store, but the transaction wouldn't work.

Anyone have this? Is it any good?

Hey /tg/.

Backstory: I used to be way into stuff like DnD and Pathfinder. Currently, my friends aren't into that sort of thing. They play stuff like Munchkin, and I got them to play a pretty fun evening of Cthulhu Fluxx. So now I'm looking for some similar-ish board games that my friends and I can enjoy.

Question: What board game would you recommend for a group of people who enjoy wacky, semi-fantasy/sci-fi games, but aren't really into RP stuff?

Currently looking at Card Wars, because a few of us love Adventure Time. But money is tight and I only want to drop cash if I know it'll be worth it.

Another few to those already mentioned, Forbidden Island, Saboteur card game, and zombie dice. All good for some quick play.

What are some of the strangest characters your players have come up with? My last Deadlands campaign became a weird bromance when the two main players made their characters into a Russian Mad Scientist and an Expert Pastry Chief. What are some that you have come across?

I fail to see how a character created and sustained in existence by DM's fiats could be considered "not a gamebreaker".

Either it fails miserably and it means problems for the rest of the party, or DM looks other way every other minute and everyone knows that he artificially sustains whole story.

Either way: a gamebreaker.

Anonymous 15/04/26(Sun)14:11 No. 81200

It was DM fiat that allowed a character that, under normal circumstances, would not be allowed as playable. Other than that, the DM was pretty good about things.

Also, I'm not sure you actually know what, "Gamebreaker," means. It refers to any trick, strategy, or ability that drastically alters the way a game is played by proving unbalanced in normal play. Something like Pun Pun the kobold is a Gamebreaker. Something like an odd character concept that, under normal circumstances, shouldn't be used for requiring books from multiple settings and having (strictly speaking) unplayable stats is not.

Anonymous 15/04/26(Sun)23:31 No. 81230

Actually, you're wrong on both accounts.

Firstly, you seem to think that rpg society gathered somewhere out there and formed an agreement regarding what means what and how things are supposed be.

It never happened. And won't ever. There's no agreement on such basic things as who the GM is supposed to be, what's his role and even whether it should be DM, GM, Keeper or Storyteller.

Secondly, you're pushing your own understanding of the concept as "the one" and think everyone else follows such limited viewpoint.

Not really. Just because you decide that you want to narrow the definition to what suits you, doesn't give you the right to demand others to follow you.

And therefore, "gamebreaker", my clueless Amigo, stays what it is: subjectively understood "anything" that breaks the game, no matter if it comes from broken crunch, flawed fluff or unacceptable oog behavior.

One of most overplayed tropes (look, it's dumb as fuck half-draconic, half-faerie/elf/otherkin child-like wizard, just like in 100s of shitty anime series) second to "Drizzt" only (look, it's an example of typically evil species, that for some reason becomes bros with what his society things "enemy"), is definitely a gamebreaker.

Any opinions on Princess: the Hopeful?


Which of the two versions do you prefer and why?

Ya, it's a piece of shit, and blasphemy in the eyes of the Lord.

Meh. While I -do- like the idea of playing as a tiny flickering spark of hope in a world that punishes any brief glimmer of light with unending sorrow, I just never felt like it really was what it could be.

Can someone explain Lamentations of the Flame Princess to me?

I mean - there's a core book and there's some grindhouse edition. There are various adventures like Magnificent Joop something, and there's Red Pleasant land. Do they all take place in same setting?

And what has Vornheim to do with that?

That's "Darkplane", also caught my interest and i'm hoping it gets released soon. Didn't back that one since my players weren't very interested in it, but I still wanna check it out.

I'll probably throw some money at these coins & gems, seems like a good deal for the amount you get.

If I can rope a couple friends in to split the $100 pledge, I'll go that way. $33 for a hundred coins is pretty sweet.

I backed their first KS. Good crew, few delays, nice final product. One of the KS I don't regret backing.

I've considered making a kaiju themed retroclone book in the near future, so this might just help me out a little bit (because I'm terrible at art). Thanks.

D&D Redux - Player's Book ReduxDM 15/03/31(Tue)04:23 No. 79695 [Reply]

This is a labor of love. This Redux of the Dungeons & Dragons game system has been crafted from multiple editions of the game. From the original three-volume set to the latest 5th-Edition release, each has left their mark on this custom re-working of our favorite fantasy tabletop roleplaying game.

In the spirit of the Metzner and Moldvay Basic D&D Sets, this set reveals everything that both players and Dungeon Masters need to begin creating and playing their first D&D campaign. Future Redux releases will expand the game and introduce optional rules, equipment, spells, monsters, magic items, and more.

The Player's Book that you now hold in your hands includes everything you need to create and play a character that you can advance to the 4th-level of experience. The rules have been Reduxed and recompiled to make them elegant and easy for new players to learn while still offering a degree of flexibility that allows you to create and play a variety of character types.

Now all you need are a set of dice and a few good friends to hit the table with.

The Basic Set: Player's Book includes:

* An elegant task resolution system that includes flexibly defined skills
* A unique take on the four core classes
* Warriors perform mighty feats of arms unequaled by their peers

"Redux" is not a verb. It's an adjective. Something cannot be "reduxed". Right from the start, you're not inspiring confidence.

Hate to agree, but this matches up to a lot of OSR games I've bought. The real advantage on this one is it's totally free. That said, I think there's some great work done here, just nothing that distinguishes it too much in my opinion.
