HEY! Everyone!

My Razer Lachesis broke after more than 5 years of service with no problems at all until the wire started ripping.
I would absolutely love if people had suggestions for good gamer mice, preferably some that you use yourself!

My little sister wants to play D&D she's like 10 and we don't have anyone to play with so i'm gonna DM for her and have her do a solo campaign, my problem is i'm lacking inspiration atm due to being really busy but i don't want to let her down. Could you guys inspire me a bit? We even made a character for her in Hero Forge and it's looking pretty awesome

Hey guys me and a few friends have a weekly stream where we play some D&D! We are running 3.5e with a little homebrew feel to it. But you should come check it out!

So, I'm trying to run Hero Lab on my laptop. The tricky part is my laptop runs Ubuntu 14.04 and Hero Lab doesn't support Linux. I've tried running through both Wine and Playonlinux, I've found forums online that say either work. They work fun up until a point, the trouble is that Wine is apparently having issues connecting to the network so I can't download the Hero Lab updates I need to actually use the program. I've tried updating Wine to the most recent version and it didn't help. I'm running it on the 64bit emulator, should I try it on 32bit? If that doesn't work can anyone offer any other help or advice?

Would someone be so kind to help an ignorant guy figure things out?

I want so bad to play D&D, Pathfinder, or something of the like (what I understand is standard fantasy roleplaying). I've been promised by friends that they'd get me into a game to learn the basics, but I've been waiting for years and it didn't happen. So I've been thinking of doing it on my own: learn the basics and host a game.

My plan so far has been watching YouTube tutorials and read basic, abridged guides, and whatnot. I'll be getting some dices and play mostly "free-style" (making up whatever numbers I don't know, making up monsters and spells).

Questions are:

>Is it really that "suicidal" to want to be DM on my first game?
>One guy at the nerd store told me to get basic starter packs for D&D or Pathfinder, for 30€. Is it reasonable advice or was he probably trying to sell me expensive stuff?
>Even if I get to host the party, do you think it will go well if I abide to loose rules and make up stuff I don't know? I'm hoping to make the experience more "role" than "playing".

Thanks in advance, guys.

I don't suggest trying to DM your first game. Playing gives you the experience for DMing.
But if you're set on it, Pathfinder has everything available online, even bestiaries, so you wouldn't have to make everything up.

Thanks so much for replying. I guess I'll have to attend at least a couple of games before taking the risk.

I've not played magic before except once or twice on the duels pc games, but like 4 years ago I don't remember any of it but I just bought both of these preowned toolkits for £30 total
tons of cards in them
i'm surprised at the condition of the cards tbh, usually preowned cards are all frayed and yellow at the sides and it makes them like double in thickness and fuck up stacking them and ugh


anyway
what next

If someone could talk to me I have a ton of questions. For now though, I have this guy called Iroas, God of Victory, and he seems like a bro. Still only gone through the reds.

Also the fucking legend that sold these had them in colour order and mostly land split which is amazing.

What are you looking to play? Actual formats like Standard or Modern, or just freeform to play for fun?
The Theros block was really fun imo, and I still play Red/White and Blue/White enchant decks from that block.

Keep in mind that it's only combat damage. Spells can still remove him.

Yea, creatures you control. Iroas is immune to damage, but something that exiles or bounces him to hand or your deck can remove him.

yeah.
bearing in mind i'm only knowledgable of other card games
the one game i played last night we couldn't even decide if defending monsters died (i since know they do, iroas will deal 7 damage to their monsters until 7 damage has been dealt (killing 3 out of 4 2/2s for example) if I understand correctly)

he can still be sacrificed and stuff, but if it says 'destroy' it doesn't do shieeet

just for fun for now
i don't have the money to play the format that uses the 4 most recent expansions (but me and my friends are considering doing one of those kinds of booster box blind drafts, sounds fun af)

just bought some card sleeves and a deck box (i had yugioh sized ones lmao) and cheeky cunts ultrapro sell them sets of 50, deck minimum is 60

i've got a deck now anyway
16x plains, 16x mountain, 4x transguild promenade, some colourless cards, and assorted red, white and redwhite monsters and very very few spells. Also, my title combo, Iroas God of Victory and Odric, Master Tactician (forces them to block with 2 or more monsters, and I can pick which ones to destroy them)

I'd suggest dropping your land count. 36 is a lot. Red/White decks usually have a lower mana curve, so 20-22 should work much better. Burn spells are also great in red, so you might wanna go for those if you're building an aggro deck.

I ran into some serious land issues so we added 3 more of each red and white
i don't have any of these cards that let you mill for land or whatever

and yeah, i went for low cost minions

You'll run into that occasionally, it's just the RNG. Adding too much land will screw you in games that last more than a few turns, as you'll end up with far more land than you need. The first time my friend made a deck he had 30 land, he had nothing to play the second half of the game because I played a white deck with a ton of healing and removal.

aight
just sleeved my whole deck
literally just squeezed into the deckbox (appx. 80 cards)

i'll do a decklist at some point
i think i'll remove some monsters though, i like efficient decks (i play 40 card decks in ygo)

Well if you're at 80 cards 36 land doesn't seem like too much. I though you had a standard 60 card deck. That's something to be careful with though. Consistent decks are usually better than ones with a lot of variety.
If you like large decks though, Commander is a fun format you might like.

i much prefer efficiency and will drop it to 60
i just drafted it at my friend's house while we were waiting to play over like 5 minutes

Require a second or more opinion. I'd like to start up a game this summer, and I'd like to play an Artificer. However, my past experiences in D&D never lasted more than a month. 2 Games, One the GM had a medical condition and also was an ass to the girl player, lasted maybe 4 weeks (Though I never saw anything, everyone else thought so so IDK, also we were broken as shit, I started a Elven Ranger, and ended up a Giant Orc 4-Handed Elemental Scythe Wielder, other had a cool concept, but lasted 3 weeks and then just, broke up with no warning I've currently got a character set up as a Half-Dragon, giving a lot to STR and INT, for fighting and crafting respectively. Copper, for the CG alignment and Fire Breath, which in lore is a large part of his Forge.

Once per day per paladin level, a stonelord can draw upon the power of the living rock. As a swift action, she treats her melee attacks until the beginning of her next turn (whether armed or unarmed) as magical and adamantine, including ignoring hardness up to twice her paladin level

Does this mean that a stonewarden pallies at level 3 can ignore 26 hardness on a sunder (20 for adamantine, 6 for pally level * 2)?

I hadn't thought of that. I mean, casters yeah, but not slimes. Clever. My setting is an ancient Roman empire on the verge of collapse from invasions by synesthesist summoner Celts, gargantuan beast taming Carthaginians and naval scourges of the Visigoths. I'll give the Carthaginians slimes ^_^
