What method do you folks use to keep parties together in pathfinder. This seems to be my biggest challenge

Keep environment lethal enough that lone individuals inevitably die sooner rather than later.

Start the game with the contrivance that "You guys are a team, you have to cooperate and work together" and enforce it consistently.

Refuse to run for a split party for anything longer than a single roll to scout ahead.

If folks want to split up long term, you'll run for the larger group and the rest become NPCs

Whould /tg/ want a overly motherly paladin in their party who when catching you doing misdeeds give you a stern talking too, but always makes you your meals and takes care of you if you are hurt or sick.

Is there a game centered around playing characters in a family sitcom?

I don't mean "is there a game where you could bend the rules to facilitate this" -- I mean is there a game where that's the entire core premise of the mechanics? Something that could just as easily produce an episode of The Simpsons as it could Bob's Burgers or Fresh Prince?

That's helpful, thanks.

So I'd like to discuss what we think will be in Eldritch Moon, and more specifically, if Emrakul is in the set, what we think her abilities will be and what Eldrazi cards we will see.

I'm guessing Emrakul will be something like:

When you cast Emrakul, some wacky thing happens.

I'm also guessing there will be transforming Eldrazi cards, which I would love to see.

300 KB,
So as I kid I played this game called Mechassault. It was fucking cool and the mech designs kinda stayed with me.

So then I'm an adult on a boring night recently, I'm staying up late and can't get sleep and I find a video about Battletech. So then I make the connection and start down the rabbit hole. Eight hours later I'm reading all the entries on Sarna and looking up gameplay on the old Mechwarrior games.

This fucking universe and shit is awesome. Why the fuck is none of the vidya easy to get? Why the fuck didn't I hear about the tabletop till like now. I've been playing Infinity, 40K, and Fantasy since I started college.

I really want to play in an RPG.

Unfortunately, that's not going to happen any time soon, so I need to get myself out of a rut so that I can run a proper game. To do that, I want to know what your favourite systems are for short, one shot, or one off games. Something where I can run things and get myself out of a not-RPing funk without days and weeks of preparation or the expectation of keeping a game alive for six months.

I don't really want to ask for themes or kinds of games or anything, since I feel doing that colours what responses I'll get....

GURPS Lite when you seriously want to play with rolls a one shot game. 30 pages, extremely condensed, can be used for anything, doesn't suffer from long-ass character creation

Narrative gameplay when we don't feel like rolling dice at all, so usually ad-hoc homebrew with character sheet made out of napkin with all the most important elements about the character on it. Or not even napkin, just telling outright who is your character.

Anyone got reverse of that pic?

Even for one-shots/offs we play the games we are most familiar with: DnD, Shadowrun and our Fantasy Homebrew.

What's the ideal rate of inflation XP should have when it comes to gain in levels? Are empty levels ever a good idea?
19 replies and 3 images submitted. Click here to view.

Empty levels are meaningless, since they defeat the purpose of having levels at all. It is paradoxical to have become better without actually becoming better.

You also don't want leveling to take more and more time (as they do in vidya) - just have the challenges in order to gain experience at all be harder.

The reason why there isn't a bunch of level 25 Fighters in the village guard isn't that they haven't trained - it's that they haven't got the guts to do the sort of deeds that would turn them into level 25s.

>For a simple xp system, just have each level be achieved after, say, 10 challenges. If something the party does is too "low level", it just doesn't count. An easy challenge might count as 0.5 or 0.75, while a hard challenge counts as 1.5 or 2 regular challenges.

I've normally just them them levelled as appropriate but the player keep on insisting I give them XP ( I guess it's the 'joy' of having numbers go up, what can I say, skinner was right)....

No. Especially if only certain classes get empty levels whereas others don't. A fighter getting more HP and a +1 to his BAB is pretty lame compared to the Wizard or Cleric getting a new gamebreaking spell.

Being a Paladin is not about Law... not about Light... sometimes not even about Good. For Laws can sometimes be written by evil hands, the gifts of the Light can be twisted to obey those full of arrogance and malice, and even what is believed to be Good can be a mask for the corrupt to work their plots unseen.

It is about Justice, about protecting the weak, uplifting the downfallen, punishing the wicked. Justice above all - that is the code of the Paladin.

You give comfort to the sick, even if you are too weak to lay on hands. You build bridges and mend fences, sometimes literally, and help in menial tasks without complaint nor seeking of reward. You give counsel where it is welcome, and where that counsel is unwelcome you sacrifice your own dignity to soften others' hearts.

I think you're a lost cause op.

The first step is not trying to be badass.

Badasery is like illumination, is a golden fish that you can not catch, but that will jump in you hand once you are ready.

Yeah don't try to be badass, but if you're talking about a character that's very good at fighting and strong try and play up the disadvantages of spending your life mostly just learning how to murder. Have the badass loner actually have their social or intellectual ineptitude be a burden. Also realistically they would have a few scars and probably won't be crazy good-looking.

Going to be playing a dwarf in my next campaign and I'm wanting to make a list of dwarvish proverbs/sayings that I can throw out any chance I get. What are some good ones I should use?

Was Gygaxian role-playing more masculine than our contemporary role-playing approaches?

>As pertaining to Gary Gygax, late co-creator of Dungeons and Dragons. Noted for extremely lethal traps and puzzles which rewarded the player for proceeding with paranoid caution. Frequently resulting in total party kills or instant death or dismemberment of a character.

Those were tournament modules meant to be like that, not how it he usually played. He made them because his players (mostly Rob and Ernie, I think, IIRC) complained his dungeons were too easy, so he created a killer dungeon to kill them off. They both got through Tomb of Horrors solo, first time, with no problem. Basically aced the killer dungeon. The full story was on here some time ago. So, yeah, RP was more masculine back then, especially the badass players, so you needed the killer dungeons to keep them in check.

It's important to remember a couple things when considering Gygax's legacy
>Gygax's play style didn't just pop up whole cloth. It was designed around players who would purposefully exploit the game.
>Most of the incredibly deadly modules written by Gygax were designed for tournament play not normal campaign play
In relation to the OD&D in general
>While most rules were pertaining to traps and combat the players were mostly meant to occupy themselves with roleplaying problems and puzzles. The rules where mostly intended to move parts that were to variable for common sense along.
>The reaction chart meant that many encounters could be solved with talking
>While Gygax is the most well known contributor to D&D, Arneson formed most of the core concepts for RPGs as a whole. He was much less focused on tables and mechanics than Gygax, tending more towards story telling and Player and DM rulings.

This isn't to say Gygaxian role-playing is or is not more masculine compared to our contemporaries but I think these things should be kept in mind from the get go.
