Basically, what would be involved would be talking to the DM and asking how to introduce your character (if you have one) into the story. That's how I did it, in any case.

My nation is currently under attack by one empire being supported by another nation's military and a third's supplies.

I don't even know at which hotspot you are.

But I suppose it's a possibility if you're willing. I promise part of the enemy's equipment, part of their lands and a trade agreement between us.

if you're actually in the mesopotamian hotspot.

So, I'm a bit new to DnD, though I've read up a few of the books and read many a story of great DnD tales. I would like to know if there is anyone starting a campaign that would tolerate my little knowledge outside of the basics? Or join one already? Have Skype and live in North/Pacific timezone.

You mean like a race and class? Halfling Rouges are the standard, but there are other variants.

i have a swashbuckler changeling and want more shit to being his disguise up. and other shit like that.
User avatar #8225 to #8223 - feelythefeel (11/26/2014) [-]
Disguise is charisma too.
User avatar #8224 to #8223 - feelythefeel (11/26/2014) [-]
Now that I think about it, bluff is a charisma skill and forgery is intelligence, so maybe an elf would work too. They're not even terrible rouges either.
User avatar #8226 to #8224 - dogziller (11/26/2014) [-]
yeah. elf might be good to do if i remake this character.
User avatar #8227 to #8226 - feelythefeel (11/26/2014) [-]
If I remember right (And if the version you're using is the same), elves are pretty good at INT and CHA, so that would be a good choice.

What's a generic (Read: Not Star Wars or anything) Sci-fi tabletop RPG, like mentioned in Mr.Welch? Same question for the superhero one.
#8218 to #8214 - xxhadesflamesxx ONLINE (11/26/2014) [-]
Superhero would be Mutants and Masterminds
for Sci Fi Stars without numbers may work
User avatar #8221 to #8218 - feelythefeel (11/26/2014) [-]
Would you recommend both? Are they like DnD but for a different genre?
#8230 to #8221 - xxhadesflamesxx ONLINE (11/26/2014) [-]
I've never personally played them but everyone I've known that's played Stars without numbers said it was good and M&M nobody I know has played either

Would anyone be willing to teach me the basics on how a game, character creation, rolls and all work? I've only played in one session on roll20 and I'd like to play more, but a lot of DMs don't like that I'm so new to tabletops.
User avatar #8219 to #8211 - MrDeadiron (11/26/2014) [-]
Well I'm going to be in a campaign that is very noob friendly, so pm if you'd be interested.

To learn how to play the game, buy the Player's Handbook, the Monster Manual, and the Dungeon Master's Guide for whichever version you want to play. 5th edition (the newest) doesn't have the Dungeon Maaster's Guide out yet, so you might wanna try a different edition if you wanna start right away. If you don't have the available money, maybe go down to the bay and meet up with some pirates or something Next step is to find a group willing to play. Pick up a pre-made adventure on the web for first level players, have your friends make characters (or make a character, and have a friend DM), and give'er a whirl.

If you wanna get a group together, just ask your friends. You'll be surprised how many people know about DnD and are interested in it. If not, then just go down to the local comic/nerd store and ask people there. Not even just the store manager/clerk, but most customers will jump at the chance to tell you about the game and invite you to their group.

User avatar #8232 to #8217 - securityexplain ONLINE (11/26/2014) [-]
Okay, I see you giving this advice all the time, and I gotta say, I don't think newbies should make such an investment. Especially if they've never even played anything before. Thats not really that small of an investment.

They really don't need Monster Manual and Dungeon Master's Guide, stuff from there can easily be covered by DM's and other players.
And as far as Player Handbook goes, they can just pick up Starter books for free which have everything they need to get started. In addition to participating in a game with helpful, friendly people, thats pretty much all they need to see if they even like this stuff.

The only thing that they stand to gain from purchasing all of that at once on impulse is that they'll grow a noticeable resentment toward the whole genre for wasting their money if they don't like it. I know I did such stuff, and I know people who did (not specifically with d&d, but the concept stands)
User avatar #8237 to #8232 - ecomp (11/26/2014) [-]
also, you can't get the starter kit for 4e and prior anymore. You'll have to read the PHB.

TFW you teach the entire D&D group why you named your character the odd name "Pun Pun"
#8199 to #8188 - blacknightshade (11/24/2014) [-]
Please don't tell me you actually tried to make and use a Pun-Pun build. Because if that is the case, that just isn't fun. It's a neat thought experiment to know that with just a few abilities at your disposal as a Kobold, you can become a god, yes, but there's no point in playing it. "Okay, you are a god now, and can continue to ascend to become greater than the gods. Anything you choose to do or happen will succeed, end of story." That's it. There'd be nothing left.
Though if you were naming it just as a reference to Pun-Pun, then okay, that's a neat, clever little reference. But my DM in my campaigns is specifically aware of Pun-Pun, and has said that if he ever sees us making a character that seems to be following the path toward Pun-Pun, he would deus ex machina a god killing him before he had a chance and making the player reroll a new character.

Depends.
Starting level, date and time(zone)?
User avatar #8185 to #8183 - spawnconnery (11/24/2014) [-]
Starting date is whenever we get two more players, start at level 1, and the time zone would be EST

I'm involved in several other campaigns, so I may have to back out if it conflicts with any established already.

My dad is America every year and each year he carries the team. This year I'm Germany and my cousin is Japan, I really need to win this game.

So I'm playing a pathfinder campaign with some mates. Currently we're trying to hunt down a werewolf in a tower. now the paladin is a little cunt who somehow keeps rolling 1 and hurting everyone around him. gemme some ideas on how to kill him in a funny way (I'm a halfling ranger btw).

we're all pretty new and so is the gamemaster so it's not very true to the rules.
#8176 to #8170 - zombehking (11/23/2014) [-]
Flirt with him. Get him to care for you. Make the player have conflicting internal issues. Make him rethink his entire life. Marry the paladin. Have kids. Retire and let your kids do the adventuring. Then, on your 25th Anniversary, bake him a pie. It needs to either be Apple, Blueberry, or Pumpkin, because those are my favorites, and this is my plan. Give him that pie. Let him love that pie like he loves you(r character.) Then, kill yourself. The pain he feels at your (character's) death will be worse than any pain he could feel from you killing him.

Morning/Evening everyone. I'm putting together a game for 5e d&d it will be roll20 have two players and a DM. I would like to get another DM the DM's could alt with eachother and be players at a total of six players five and the six will be one of the DMS. Message me for further info. This is new player friendly by the way.
User avatar #8220 to #8166 - MrDeadiron (11/26/2014) [-]
Hey just saw your post two of my friends and I would be interested if the spots still open.
User avatar #8171 to #8166 - jeffthellamaking (11/23/2014) [-]
Perhaps you'd garner more interest if your post were legible.
I've put forth some effort, and I still can barely make any sense of this.

2 players + 1 GM = 3 people.
Add 1 extra DM = 6 people.

I don't...
How?
User avatar #8173 to #8171 - flawlesswinz ONLINE (11/23/2014) [-]
Okay what I was trying to say is, I am making a d&d campaign. I would like to get another DM to play, as there is only one, the campaign would be a multiple DM campaign so the DM's would alternate each session.


I would to get a total of six players for the party, which currently consist of two persons. So you right there, two out of five. We need three more people. That is only two out of five, where does the last man come from? It comes from the other DM who is playing this session instead of being dungeon master, while the other DM is not playing. So one DM plays while the other DM dungeon masters. The DM playing is the sixth man.
User avatar #8174 to #8173 - jeffthellamaking (11/23/2014) [-]
"I would to get a total of six players for the party, which currently consist of two persons."
Comprehension dawned on this sentence, the rest was unnecessary.
This cleared up just about everything.

Unfortunately I've already involved myself in a campaign, run by securityexplain guy.
Maybe next time, eh?

I've always wanted to do tabletop stuff. Never have before. How do?
User avatar #8162 to #8156 - ecomp (11/22/2014) [-]
Other tabletop stuff like Warhammer and 40k are also fun. For this it's easier. Go to the aforementioned comic shops and just buy the stuff. You'll need to get the main rulebook and an armybook/codex first, then buy your other stuff based on what you read. Tournaments and matches are often held at these shops, so keep an eye out, or ask around.

About 5e homebrew campaigns I'll be leading, decided to put some stuff out in the open so people know what to work with. And for me to have it all in one place.
!!
Current campaigns and participants:!!

Unity of Goblins: hokon , rainiar , 4 of my personal friends
Shadow in the South: no one yet, officially

People who have expressed interest in joining: xxhadesflamesxx , sexyhimself, jeffthellamaking, zacoren

(apologies if I've forgotten someone or added someone who isn't interested, let me know if that is so)

Both campaigns are casual and newbie friendly. If anyone else is interested, hit me up.

The sessions will be held on weekends or Fridays, preferably every week, but all of it comes down to consensus of the group.
It will generally be held between 6 and 8 PM +1 timezone. This way people from wider range of timezones can participate, I believe. Again, nothing is set in stone.

Participation in every session is not required, but you might be left a bit behind with experience, although I will try my best to help out with such stuff.

You can participate in both campaigns in case someone drops out (either one-time or permanently) as fill-in, but with different characters.
More on character creation and world itself in comments.

Not sure how full these campaigns are with potential players, but I might be potentially interested in the second campaign. Have a little experience with 5e, currently in a homebrew campaign with some friends here at college. Just want to make sure of when exactly that campaign may be starting up if there is an opening, and what all I'd need to get together to take part.
User avatar #8190 to #8189 - securityexplain ONLINE (11/24/2014) [-]
It should be within two weeks. The first campaign is next weekend, so want to hit it off with that one first.

Yeah, there are openings. If you know any friends who'd be willing to participate, let me know.

You just need a character. Check out the comments below, there are some notes.
#8208 to #8190 - blacknightshade (11/25/2014) [-]
Alright, sounds cool, hopefully I should be open by the time the sessions start. Don't really have any other people I know of to bring into this, but it sounds like the party's filling up rather well.

Wanted to ask something though, is there any word from people as to what classes people will be playing? There's a few classes I'm familiar with and enjoy playing, but if there's already multiples of those, I may try out something new and different.
User avatar #8210 to #8208 - securityexplain ONLINE (11/25/2014) [-]

Does 5e get a Monk class?
If not, I'm all over Bard.

I would be able to make it on Saturdays but not Fridays
also since you prefer no evil what do you think about a warlock of a Great Old One?
User avatar #8125 to #8124 - securityexplain ONLINE (11/21/2014) [-]
Ah, yes, forgot to mention that.

Yes, Warlocks are not limited to being even near the alignment of whomever they choose to study. They simply study them and get some stuff from them, maybe do some favors (its up to DM to decide stuff like that).

Considering the world is a bit different from Forgotten realms, there aren't really Great Old Ones. Instead of them, you can pick the Titans. As far as abilities you get go, they remain the same, so its more or less just lore in question.
We'll talk more about details of which Titan you wish to make pact with later, but in any case, go for it.

If I'm not mistaken, you're sixth for second campaign.

I'll put everything on paper soon enough and let you know.
#8126 to #8125 - xxhadesflamesxx ONLINE (11/21/2014) [-]
Might change class then but it depends on the choice of Titans
also forgot to ask
Will there be voice chat?
Is it using Roll20?
User avatar #8147 to #8126 - barbwirepain (11/22/2014) [-]
sounds like fun on the bun
User avatar #8127 to #8126 - securityexplain ONLINE (11/21/2014) [-]
Yep, roll20.

Chat will be on either Teamspeak or Google Hangouts. I prefer TS.
In any case, good grasp over English is pretty much a necessity, but I honestly doubt anyone will have problems with that.
#8130 to #8127 - xxhadesflamesxx ONLINE (11/21/2014) [-]
Ok count me in then
Class might change depending on the Titans but I still definitely want to play
User avatar #8132 to #8130 - securityexplain ONLINE (11/21/2014) [-]
Well, they will at general be pretty similar in design and origins as The Great Old ones from Forgotten realms. Its more of a matter of fluff, like some background and other stuff.
User avatar #8129 to #8127 - jeffthellamaking (11/21/2014) [-]
I haven't a mic, will that be a problem?
User avatar #8133 to #8129 - securityexplain ONLINE (11/21/2014) [-]
Well, it would be nice if you get a hold of one.

But otherwise, its not a necessity. You can write in Roll20 anyway.
User avatar #8137 to #8133 - jeffthellamaking (11/21/2014) [-]
Cool, cool.
I'll do what I can, but money is tight at the moment.
User avatar #8123 to #8120 - securityexplain ONLINE (11/21/2014) [-]
The campaigns will take place in a world of my own creation, Eternia.

It is a classical fantasy world filled with pretty much same beings you would find in Forgotten Realms.

Some notes about character creation:

- Characters start at level 1
- Elf and dwarf subraces listed in 5e Player Handbook will be changed to better fit the world. If anyone decides to use one of those, let me know.
- Your character cannot be of any Evil alignment.
- Your alignment must be a maximum of one step away (not diagonally) from your chosen God (more on them later)
- Paladins must match their Gods alignment exactly. The only exception this are Paladins of Goddess of Vengeance (LE), which can be Lawful neutral, and Paladins of God of Death (NE), who can be True Neutral

Players are encouraged to create rich background for their characters. I will be actively rewarding good roleplaying.
It is also advisable, for the sake of story, for characters to be relatively young, but it is not a requirement.

I'll write about Gods a bit later.

NATION BUILDER 3.0 Turn 7
roll 5, and assign each digit to an action. The success of such actions depends on how effective your action is. If you combine two numbers in a single roll, that's the same as rolling for it twice. Remember to roleplay, and that actions you perform with other players don't necessarily warrant a roll unless they effect one or more stats of a nation. Please ask questions and notify me of any mistakes.
How war works
Just to remind you guys, war is taken place separately from normal rolls. The max number of digits you can roll for war is equal to what your Military Stat is. For each digit you choose to roll, your military score drops by 1. This way, you have to feed the war effort with more and more reinforcements, instead of just hammering away at each other with the same military. So next round, instead of rolling 5 and spending 2 on Military, roll 5 as normal, and then roll an additional 2 in a response as war rolls.

You enforce your military policies of creating an army, and your army swells in size. Your army is so big, that you can infact send some soldiers to the Meso-Byzantine empire in aid, which you do. Quarries and clay pits become commonplace, and masonry, pottery, and the like quickly become proffessions.

Meso-Byzantine Empire - mysticpichu
+0 Temperate, +1 Autocratic, -1 Totalitarianistic
E:2 M:2 H:11
You send your armies to storm Halosian soil. You hack your way through their warriors, and you manage to take a few port cities to set up as a base of operations. You may launch new land-based attacks from these ports. You raise another army, and T'lan Imass sends another army to begin to replace the two that were used up in occupying the coast. You have yet to train these Elephants, however you do succeed in breeding them. Perhaps this new litter will be easier to train.

A spy academy is created. This will help you on further spy missions. You promote the importance of fighting amongst your citizens, but sadly they do not take the warning. Expansion is made in all directions. An unexpected, (or perhaps well expected) attack is made on your coast. The Meso-Byzantinian Empire is repulsed at your thievery, and storm your coastal cities in revenge. Will the war go on until one of your last breaths, or can you find peace amongst war? Meso-Byzantine seems to have two allies in the war, Persia, and T'lan Imass.

1+2 - Our nation is under attack. We are to gather most of our populace and push back the invaders. The said gathering will occur at the capital, which is still safe. From there we will defend our lands.
3 - search for mercenaries or even pirates , adept at sea battles. Promise them payment if they can do the job. The job is to go north of our territory by sea , on the route the Meso-Byzantians are comming from, and ambush the incomming boats and sink or capture them. Such a job should not be hard for prowlers of the seas if they are to accept it since the enemy ships will be filled either with soldiers , but foot soldiers unprepared for figthing when not on solid ground and barely any place for movement, or boats carrying supplies for the army, which will be an even easier target and can be captured without much trouble by the hired blades. Even more so if the agents we sent further north manage to exhaust them and deprive them from sleep.
The payment is received after the job is done. Ofcourse , all that is looted is for them to keep. And we will be sure to repay them for all the armour , weapons , ships and supplies they bring to us.
4+5 - have most (but not all, there should be left enough for teaching purpouses and a second operation consisting of a few of the experienced ones) of the experienced covert ops agents and some of the more unexperienced (but trained) ones go with small boats to the north, where the only way the enemies could have come from is, and set up ambushes along the water - slowing down the enemy reinforcements and supplies. The said ambushes should be spread as much as possible in order to keep the enemy under pressure - exhausting them and preventing them from sleeping as a priority point. All long engages or close combat are to be avoided. Burning arrows should do the job just fine. If we manage to hire help from experienced sea combatants then they are to establish connections with them and cooperate with them.

**warbob rolls 0** Gather the troops and do anything to hold the enemy at bay. Show no mercy to the invaders, nor their allies or animals. Cut the horses' legs and you will take down the cavalryman - prone on the ground and perhaps even with a horse pressing his lower body.
Our people have trained since children for combat and their combat prowess and athleticism should prove superior to the invaders' if given the chance. The ranks of the forces are the same as the trainings they have done as younglings, with special forces of people with more unique ways of fighting (since I haven't specified a typical weapon but rather inspired them to fight with what they can, I can assume there should be some rather unorthodox).

We shall not attack the enemy yet, just defend our positions. Ofcourse if their troops die in the battle after comming from the nearby encampment we should go check it out and take all we can from it. If the position is deemed suitable by the commander they will move there. A small group of people should be near the supplies during fights and if the order for retreat is given or the fight is nearly lost - they are to burn the provisions.

Dear halosisians, let the enemy have none of what is ours!
Defend it , defend your fellow halosisians and defend the future of our nation!
The only thing our enemy should be permitted to have is DEATH and RUIN.

1+2 - We breed and train the horses gifted to us by the Meso-Byzantine Empire with the help of the trainer they sent. The Bonecaster orders that part of our soldiers should learn to ride these horses - creation of small and elite cavalry units (good scouts and useful if enemy retreats), he also orders that the creatures be put to use in the economy. However, these noble beasts are not to be overburdened or underfed and anyone who does this not out of necessity will be considered a criminal.
3 - Continue with our support in the war effort of the Meso-Byzantine Empire.
4 - A local tribe often drinks a strange brew they call "wine" we wish to learn how they make this brew because it seems to make their people happy.
5 - Continue the expansion of our nation, the T'lan Imass must grow in number if we are to bring cold justice to this world.

1 - 2 create a grand barracks in the capital. An elite unit will be trained from here, the hoplite. These hoplites fight in a wall formation blocking anyone from pushing through the lines.
3 create propeganda to aid the war effort. Using this propeganda we will try to recruit people from inside our empire and from local tribes. The people from the local tribes will recieve citizenship or a sum of gold.
4 keep the young elephants seperate from the older ones. Train them to be friendly towards people.

1 - The Universal Consensus agrees we shall send Observers to watch the war from both sides, so that neither's message will be lost to the ages. All history, like all knowledge, is good.

2-3 - The Universal Consensus agrees we shall explore this sea more, to learn of what may lie beyond the horizon.

4-5 - The Universal Consensus agrees we shall establish the First Draft, our first attempt at writing a perfect constitution.

Inside it, we will decree that all people, of all colors, sizes, shapes, and cultures, are free, and this shall not be infringed upon. Those who infringe upon this basic right shall, in turn, have their basic right infringed, in an equal and fair way. This will be a land for the man to decide with. All disputes shall be settled fairly, orderly, and calmly. Should a dispute fail to meet these three criteria, the Universal Consensus will assign an Inquisitor to settle the dispute in a fair, orderly, calm manner.
