What kind of comrades would we be if we didn't sell our soul for our leader.
Ohh Beelzeb0ss give us back this tortured soul, so that he can once more entertain us with his games of world domination. Allow us to once more lead our armies to victory under his rule.

So it's probably been asked a million times so far on this page, but here it goes again:
my friends and I are looking to get into d&d for the summer. What exactly do we need to buy to be able to play?
User avatar #11179 to #11175 - ithinkimightbelost ONLINE (05/30/2015) [-]
Like Zarke said, drop by your local game shop and pick up a starter set of dice. Each person is going to need their own set unless you or your friends are willing to share, but that gets old fairly quick.

Here's what I suggest for dice.
1 coin for d2 rolls
1 d4
4 d6 Can replace any d3 rolls, 1-2 for 1, 3-4 for 2, 5-6 for 3.
1 d8
2 d10 One in increments of 10 and one in single increments to replace a d100
1 d12
1 d20

I suggest any GM go ahead and buy 1 pound of random dice online. It comes in handy.

You'll need 3 books to start off. GM's guide for your GM, Player's guide, and a Monster Manual. These are the most basic books, but without them you'll have a hard time starting.

Either buy a notebook of graphing paper or a decent sized dry erase board to illustrate your encounters. This will be better than trying to keep everything straight in your head.

Some people want miniatures because they're nifty, but they're not needed. With a dry erase board you can simply draw your name or find something to use as a miniature like dragon tears, unused dice, a cheeto... whatever you have on hand.

A website for you
donjon.bin.sh/

It can generate just about anything you need for most of the major games. Everything from a world and world map generator, dungeons, inns, and full adventure scenarios. Could be helpful to starting players, especially a beginning GM.

Whatever you're going to play, you can usually easily find character sheets online that you can print off. I suggest you make a copy and keep it updated, accidents happen.

Hope this helps, it's about all I can think of that you'll need off the top of my head.

Thanks for all the info. I just happened to come across a friend who has been playing for a while now, and he's going to help my friends and I get started. Until that gets going I'm gonna get to reading on all this. Thanks again guys.
User avatar #11178 to #11175 - Zarke (05/29/2015) [-]
You'll probably need a variety of dice. You can go to any gaming store worth its salts and get a small box of assorted dice of all sizes you'd ever need.

From there, you just need the rules and an adventure to follow along (which you might be able to find as a PDF, or maybe the starter pack at the same game store you got the dice from), pens/paper, and some patience.
User avatar #11177 to #11175 - rockmanfan (05/29/2015) [-]
depends. what edition are you going to use? (i recommend 3.5 or 5th.)
regardless, you'll need thh core rule book, and maybe a monster manual for the DM. apart from that, just focus on getting creative and having fun with it.

Hey you guys, I'm a World of Darkness junkie. I'm looking for some of that uncut black tar heroin to satisfy my addiction. The withdrawal is killing me. seriously, I need to find other players It's getting so lonely

I have to say, I kinda miss my old Hunter: The Vigil game. My Lucifuge hacker was constantly fighting with my friend's Joe Schmuck Task Force: VALKYRIE character. They didn't get along because my character thought his was a knuckle-dragging putz and his character thought mine was constantly trying to find new ways to get him killed on missions. I was, but I never admitted it. I blame the fact that our GM slipped up and mentioned something during a game that should have been discussed with notes or a few minutes of individual RP and the player spent every session trying to use what he knew to turn my character in to VALKYRIE.

Come to Brazil. Literaly every brazilian RPlayer is a WoD fan.

It gets pretty boring sometimes with all the "serious storyline" emo vampires.

My favorite game I was in was a VtR LARP. I was a vengeance seeking, vanilla scented, ass whooping, ice cream man vampire. I had the only PKs and one of them was a 10 agg one shot with vigor 5 and protean claws.

I was always more of a Werewolf fan myself. I like the more nature-based storylines., and the whole thing about hulking out and beating Pentex marcs to a pulp. Actually, I was just about ot start a campaign based on the 4chan Skinwalker threads.

The most fun I had with WoD was on Hunter though. My character was a bored millionaire, genious chess player, and more important, operative from an underground organization named The Hendersons (from the Old Man Henderson /tg/ thread).

I based The Hendersons in Hotline Miami's 50 Blessings organization, with a side of lulz. Their objective was not exactly to destroy the Dark Powers, since that would be impossible, but to cause as much damage and humiliation to them as possible as some kind of human self-affirmation amidst all the grimdark. My character was known on the underground as "That Pig Guy", after a misterious incident that destroyed the Prince of Paris' catacomb palace and involved 2000 flaming pigs, boomboxes blaring Spooky Scary Skeletons, and enough dynamite, tear gas and collateral damage that the whole city had to be put on alert after a "misterious gas leak". Highlights of the campaign included:

- A Justicar impaled with a giant wooden stake, then dumped on the Miami Prince's own house via trebuchet.
- A shootout on a vampire-only night club ending with the party's big guy kicking down the door and mowing down a small army of neophytes with a flametrower.
- Getting high on werewolf blood and using increased power and agility (long story) to rampage through a Giovanni mansion Hotline Miami style, then almost dying of blood poisoning.
- Greatly decreasing the sucess rate of neophyte vampires getting prey by sneaking holy water on the formula of the world's greatest pepper spray distributor. It didn't kill them (since so few people have True Faith), but it did sting.
- Completely keying the Lamborghini of an antideluvian.
- FInding out that Gene Simmons is a ventrue that wished to help us bringing down the prince, but killing him anyway because fuck Gene Simmons.
- Crashing the Miami's Camarilla emergency meeting with an explosive garbage truck, delivered via trebuchet.
- Crashing the Miami's Sabbath Emergency meeting with an explosive ice-cream truck, delivered via trebuchet.
- Using a series of terrorist attacks, assassinations and drugged rampages to pit the Miami Camarilla and Sabatth into an open underground war with each other, with the Werewolves slowly creeping in the background.
- The grand finale, exploding the party's underground bunker complex with the sheriff's men inside, while the survivng characters fled the city by boat.

the leader of The Hendersons turned out to be Cain himself, who was not amused at what vampires became and wished to shake things up. Him pulling strings in the backstage was the reason we managed to get away with so much and lose only three characters.

There was supposed to be a sequel when he deployed us at New York to make the Miami Underground War spread to more urban centers, but it's in development hell.

That has got to be one of the greatest tales of bullshit awesomeness I have ever heard. I can only wish that I had been there to see it all unfold in person
User avatar #11173 to #11172 - rockmanfan (05/28/2015) [-]
isnt that the game with multiple supernatural-themed sets like werewolves and vampires? my friends are always trying to badger me into playing it. whats it about, specifically?
User avatar #11174 to #11173 - TheAlbinoRhino (05/28/2015) [-]
It's a really adaptive system that is mostly set in modern times. It is a system that is more based on the story element than the mechanics heavier D&D.

Yes, we need more poorly designed games that last for a few rounds and then disappear off the face of the earth.

Hello everyone! i would like to say that i will be attempting to start up a game of pathfinder. i shall use a story from the books, or write one myself. If you are interested please comment here. i can only do with five players, we can play the game over skype chat or text (i will have to chat so i don&quot;t have to type for days but anyone who wont feel comfortable talking can type.) i can probably only take about six of you but i think that it will be a fun thing to do, i should say that the rules of thumb are to have a good time what ever that may ensue. thank you for taking time to read this long ass comment.

Are you doing it on roll20? I'm so down to play
User avatar #11158 to #11157 - megamouth (05/21/2015) [-]
i dont know how to use roll 20. i was planning on just using it for its die roller, but i might try to learn about map layout, generally i worked without it.
User avatar #11159 to #11158 - cshp (05/22/2015) [-]
My dm usually just puts the grid on, gives us characters and draws the general scenery for combat, also rolling, but that's all. Works pretty well when you're on skype, it's all you really need and you don't need to put in a lot of work as a dm. It helps if you have digital copies of the maps to display as well
User avatar #11160 to #11159 - megamouth (05/22/2015) [-]
i dont know ive always been a visuals through word kind of dm, and i started to figure that stuff out, and its like im five playing with the paint tool again
User avatar #11161 to #11160 - cshp (05/22/2015) [-]
He still does visuals through word. He only draws the layouts for combat purposes and crude drawings get the job done
User avatar #11162 to #11161 - megamouth (05/22/2015) [-]
alright makes sense. just know they gonna be terrible drawnings when they are used.
User avatar #11163 to #11162 - cshp (05/22/2015) [-]
Anything more than that slows the game down, although pre-writtens should have all the maps in there, so you could just superimpose those if you choose a pre-written

I'd like to join but I'm unable to chat. Pathfinder is the shizz tho.
User avatar #11147 to #11145 - megamouth (05/19/2015) [-]
we can work around that if youd like you can just type!
User avatar #11148 to #11147 - instalation (05/19/2015) [-]
Sounds like it could be fun then! Possibly. Depending on the time. Keep me updated!

okee dokee! and if you know of anyone else who would want to join let me know!

i'd love to but your fucking GIF made me blind so i cant now.

alright man when you gain your sight back let some other know. and yeah i thought that if i had put to much words with out an interesting pic people wouldn't read it.

Update on that Warhammer thing. It isint the Tyranid thing I wanted, He didint paint them, The box was not even opened, But Holy Fucking Crap I love it! This thing was hanging around in the guys home for a while, and he gives it to me for FREE! A set over hundreds of bucks, Free on One condition. That I do what he did, and teach someone, passing the torch to someone else once I know enough. Fucking Badass!
#11125 - drytak ONLINE (05/10/2015) [-]
so here is my situation. We are playing in a naval setting of pathfinder and our party is formed by 5 people (a killer, a warrior, a sorcerer, an inquisitor and the class with an eidolon). Everyone is at level 6, and for spells we use mana points.
Right now we are in a dugeon looking for a treasure and we reached an underground lake ( with a magic ceiling that emits light) 200m deep and 400m large. In the middle of it there is a smal island with a galleon aground. This galleon has 40 cannos per side, and in this galleon there should be the treasure we are looking for. A party member is on it (she reached it with a spell) and is looking for the treasure.
Now here's the problem: another party group was looking for a treasure and catch us from behind. This party is formed by 7 people ( 4 archer, 2 mages and and waht seems to be a warrior) and they are ready to shot us with arrows and use some spells. Our warrior has 0 life points. In the lake there is a giant moray eel ( the DM told us we can't kill it because it's op) and it's heading to us. The sorcerer can breath underwater, and can swim faster than the moray eel if it's going at normal speed. The other party seems to know only about some gems and not the real treasure (we have the gems) but we don't know if we give them the gems, what they will do.
Any advice you can give us? (probably there are some grammar errors, english is not my mother tongue)
User avatar #11129 to #11125 - krevlick ONLINE (05/11/2015) [-]
I would use the eel to my advantage in this situation. If its too powerful for you to defeat then it's likely the other party isn't strong enough to fight it alone either. Tell them the treasure is in the ship but the eel is giving you trouble. Offer to help if they heal your warrior because you need all the help you can get. I hope one of you has a high charisma for this to work. Let them take on most of the aggro from the eel and kill them off if any survive the fight with the eel. I doubt they lose much hp wise but they might burn through most of their spells in this scenario making it easier to finish them off and your warrior gets healed in the process. Good luck!

in pathfinder, you're a wizard with access to level 7 spells, time, and basically any resource you need. how do you insta-kill a pesky PC who' will is stupid good, and has decent fortitude?
User avatar #11165 to #11124 - feelythefeel (05/22/2015) [-]
Eschew Materials feat + Major Creation. Just summon anti-osmium to your maximum 7th level casting ability, and have it contact him. 17th level is enough to fragment the planet, so 7th should be enough to at least annihilate a small country.

Plus any pesky stupid-good PC characters, of course.
User avatar #11153 to #11124 - cshp (05/21/2015) [-]
when he's sleeping, force cage, power word blind, then caustic eruption (this will make them wake up), then keep blasting (Hellfire ray, cold ice strike, ect)
User avatar #11134 to #11124 - drldrl (05/12/2015) [-]
Create Pit & Rampart.
Traps him in a pit with a five foot thick block above the opening. Given that you're at least level 12, the pit is 60 feet deep so he has no way to try to break through the block above him.
Not an instant kill, but it'll do the job.
#11138 to #11134 - anonymous (05/14/2015) [-]
he's a cleric mang, he can just continuously create food and water. he could live down there
User avatar #11146 to #11138 - instalation (05/19/2015) [-]
Clerics can do that? Awesome.
User avatar #11139 to #11138 - drldrl (05/14/2015) [-]
The pit has a limited duration.
He'd be crushed to death, not starved.
User avatar #11130 to #11124 - krevlick ONLINE (05/11/2015) [-]
Hire a shady person with a dagger to help you kill him. When hes alone blind him and cast hold person. Then the rogue (or whoever really) can just cut his throat. Super simple but requires the right circumstances I suppose.
#11133 to #11130 - anonymous (05/11/2015) [-]
thanks, but his will and fort are too good for that. i've already decided something... devious

How do you guys find people to play D&D. I mean your first time.

I'd play with FJ users but I don't really speak english so the learning curve would be even worse and I don't mean to bother anyone or slow down the games.

So If I were to find people who play D&D, where should I look?
