I've been starting to post some of my hobbies on a website I made, things like talking about politics and game design I mean actually talking about game design, like what terminology should be used, what metrics are applicable in what styles, actually discussing design, not just me posting designs and posting game designs ok this one is actually me posting designs I made. .
So I was wondering if anyone thinks I should expand this into tabletop gaming, I've always been interested in the design of these but I've never really made one that worked very well, so if I was going to do this I'd be looking for some other people to post some of their own stuff and help me out with it.

We're using roll20
The webpage needs flash to work
However they have an app and a pro subscription
Both of which allow you to play on tablets.
But the app is shit, can't see the map yada yada. Dunno bout the pro service but I'd rather not have someone spend money to play with people

Does anyone here watches "Heroes and Halfwits" by Achievement Hunter? I think I'll be lucky if anyone even knows Achievement Hunter or even Rooster Teeth.

ITT: Name Discussion. Discuss names for NPCs and player characters. For example, how is Illyrius Eupheme Walhart foir a nobleman's name?

I'm looking into playing some 5.0e D&D. If I do, I'd want to play as either an Edlritch Knight or a merchant-type character. What's a good background for an Eldritch Knight? What's a good class for a merchant? And is there a better game for people who want to trade shit and get cash money?

Any background could potentially be a good one for any class, really, depends what you want to do. Soldier or Sage would be the obvious RP-backgrounds seeing as you could be a scholar who got martial training, or a fighting type who was schooled in the arcane at some point.

D&D's economics are rather bare bones, and the trade is quite simple, with some example prices for common goods and a sorta flexible pricing range for magical items etc. If you're after a tabletop game that'd let you delve into the role of a career merchant, maybe even give the entire campaign a sorta "Spice and Wolf" wibe, I recommend giving GURPS a look.

There's a supplement called "Low Tech" for GURPS that details most aspects of daily life, economics, politics and so on and so forth in a medieval-ish society, complete with suggestions for rules concerning trade, and a very extensive pricing range for everything from raw materials and trading goods, finished products and a huge variety of buildings, equipment, weapons and so on.
GURPS in itself is a pretty hard game to get into though, there's rules for just about everything, and you gotta sorta pick and choose what rules you want to use for the campaign you're going to be in.
Even if you're not going to play that system I recommend looking at Low Tech though, it's a very interesting read!
Personally I love GURPS, but have recently started favoring stuff like Fantasy Age and D&D 5E because I'm growing increasingly fond of simplicity.

Went to bed not long after posting!
Not much to comment on, really, the stats are mostly allocated nicely, only nitpicky thing I see is that if you're planning to mostly wear heavy armor, your dexterity won't do much except help your initiative and DEX saves. There's always the crossbow to take into consideration, but spells and throwing weapons can always replace that, letting you focus on more CON, for instance.

This is from a min-max perspective though, if you picture your character as fast and nimble, keep that high DEX!

I gave him DEX because every anon from multiple Chans told me that DEX was love, DEX was life.

As far as I know DEX governs:
Ranged non-thrown attack rolls
DEX saving throws and checks
Armor Class (restricted in medium armor, negated in heavy armor)
Initiative

So unless I'm missing anything they're probably refering to initiative and DEX checks being the desired thing here. While it's nice to be first, and nice to dodge fireballs etc, I don't see how it'd take presedence over STR or CON in 5E though.

That's what I thought, especially for a melee fighter class. I've shifted it some more in favour of con.

Also, would casting Shocking Grasp on a familiar and then having it touch an enemy work? The player's handbook says doing that would would cause the touch range spell to transfer to the familiar, for effective long-range touch spells.

What happens is basically that you cast the spell, and the familiar immediately uses its reaction to deliver it to whatever is in range of its touch at the time in which you cast it, as long as it is within 100ft of you at the time of casting.

If the familiar (which has its own initiative) spends its turn getting close to an enemy, and on your turn you cast your Shocking Grasp, the familiar can then deliver that spell to that enemy using its reaction.

Anyone going to Kaladesh pre-release?

Kaladesh sorta seems underwhelming after the whole Eldrazi affair, I find myself unable to get excited by any of the cards I've seen so far. Not that I'm complaining about the change in scenery, Eldrazi for 3 consecutive expansions would've been a bore.

I guess I was hoping for Phyrexia to rear its glorious head again. :d

Idk I'm pretty hyped considering I pulled a foil Chandra, Torch of Defiance and a Nissa, Vital Force at the pre-release I went to. But I can see what you mean about it being underwhelming after Eldrazi.
At least we have the upcoming conflux with Bolas to be happy about.

I'll freely admit that I haven't been looking too much into individual cards or mechanics. The one thing that dictates my hype for a set is always the art and visual style, in which I find Kaladesh sorta uninteresting.
Bolas is always a hoot though, I'm interested in seeing where the overarching plot is going nowadays!

Been to every pre-release since Theros block except Eldritch Moon, definitely not missing two in a row.
This might be the first set I play blue in. Really want to play Select for Inspection then Failed Inspection on someone.

I'm excited for the vehicle aspect and return of mainly artifact synergy decks.
Hopefully I can pull some good cards in the upcoming drafts to get a nice deck idea, cause I really hate net decking.

Metallurgic Summons really makes me want to play blue. I love token decks, the current one I play for Standard is Gruul with Hanweir, Emrakul's Evangel, Pia and Kiran, etc.
Vehicles with tokens? Even better.
If you wanna see my deck it's here tappedout.net/mtg-decks/eldrazi-horror-generator/[bold][bold]

basically we started as a group of prisoners being escorted across a wasteland by lizardfolk. We escaped and make it to a city ruled by yuan ti, my character basically takes over from this point. the second we get in i ambush an elderly noble woman yuan ti in an alley and hide her body in the sewers (i'm a rogue, more on backstory later). then i get in a fight with some dude who caught me picking his pockets. before we kill him, some very important looking snake dude joins in. thanks to my quick thinking (using a vial of extremley sticky shit we got from the woman i killed to blind him) we kill them both, and then set up a base in the sewers to continue my awesomeness. unknown to us, we had just killed this citys prince (oops), so the guard is looking for us. so obviously we go on a shopping spree, during which time i murder two shopkeepers and burn down their shops because they tried to scam me. the guards are now really looking for us, because arson.... and more murder. so me and the parties druid go to find more supplies, and are chased by a patrol of guards. we dip into a shop and i immedeatly point my crossbows at the owner and the one customer threatening them to stfu and not call for help (yeah, i dual wield crossbows). the guards show up anyways because their blink dogs smell us, and they murder the shopkeeper for helping us (idk if im counting that as a kill for me or not), and then attack us. i tell the customer to help us or i will kill him slowly. he (i named him freddy) nopes the fuck out of there like a bitch (dont worry, he'll get his). we proceed to murder every living thing in the shop. the shop has a big as keg of gunpowder. i take 2/3 of it and then ignite the rest, blowing the shop sky high. (big mistake btw, letting me have boom powder). we reconvene at base and our sentry (bitch as monk we left outside because he didnt want to be in the sewer), spots a large procession in the streets. its a herald being carried on a thronechair through the streets announcing a big ass bounty on all our heads. lots of yuan ti follow this guy, and i start to make a plan that for some fucking reason my dm deigned just crazy enough to potato. i build a bomb. a giant fucking bomb. and set it up along the path of this parade of soon to be crispies. my warlock friend detonates it from a distance, and an act of literal terrorism is acheived. this act basically puts the city on lockdown, so the party (not me) decides to map the sewers and gtfo. i however still need to deal with freddy...... i find where the bitch lives, rig a bomb to his bedroom door, and wait. it goes off and ignites the house. from the shadows i taunt him mercilessly, shooting arrows at his knees, arms, and tail. deciding enough is enough, the bitch takes the easy way out and thunderwaves, bringing the already burning house down on top of both of us. plot armor thick af tho and i live. my bussiness concluded, i rejoin my group. in the city we had stolen a map, and decide to head for the potentially more hospitable sand elf city to the north, unfortunatley the dm said fuck you and when we got there the place was overrun with fucking demons. the monk, being like the only good aligned player left, goes to find survivors while the rest of us loot bodies. he finds a badass dragonborn barbarian named bane who was there visiting a friend (this guy was pretty cool, kinda like a dnd version of drax), and an 8 year old sand elf boy name kirian (obviously a trap, the kid in the evil overrun city is always a goddamn trap). we elect to go to banes city and take the kid with us against the better judgement of anyone with half a brain (but our druid was being all mama bear about the kid and no one wanted to fuck with her because honestly she could take us in a fight). i'll continue in another comment because character limits

so we get ambushed by some of the demons from the city (dunno how they found us, probably the fuckin kid), and bane dies in the fight because our sadistic ass warlock could have stabilized him and didnt. we elect to go to the city anyways to bear the news of his death because thats a great idea (i was outvoted). upon arrival we arent actually murdered for our story, and some of us take part in the dragonborn princes rite of passage hunt, while the druid and monk stay behind in the town to provide filler plot. (which is actually amusing because the monk is a dipshit). this monk really wants boots of speed because he's one of those "stats perfection" gamebreaking dicks. our dm knows this, and is having none of his shit, so when he buys what he thinks are boots of speed and puts them on, they wont come off. even better, every time he steps, they quack. yes. quack. so instead of doing what any sane person would do and go find someone to remove the hex, this genius instead returns to the shop and uses his monk speed to run circles around the shop quacking with every step. this drives away customers and the shopkeeper has him aressted. the druid, being actually smart, gets him out because we're the chiefs gusts, and gets the boots removed.we then all meet up with the chief and decide to head southwest to a port city in the area where my character is from. now, my character is like an evil crime lord version of the dredd pirate roberts from the princess bride, and in the canyons near this city is a cavern with my hoard of unimaginable wealth (theres a whole backstory here that frankly is too long to explain when im this drunk). so along the way we run into a swarm of ice mephits that are annoying af so i kill them all but one and torture one a bunch (that was an interesting one on one with my dm) and release him into the world to tell all that Rehalan has returned. fuck yeah. so we get to the city and i go about getting help from the local "mob" (i guess is what youd call them), in reclaiming my hoard. i get two recruits who our other rogue aptly named Red and Shirt i manage to convince my group to come with, mostly through promises of stuff, but i blackmailed the druid with the kid (who is still with us an ima probs train him as the next me). so everyone agrees to go, except the monk. the goddamn monk who has ditched me mid fight a few times, wasted everyones time with dumb shit, and overcome all physical obstacles on his own without thinking about the group at all. i'd had enough, fuck this monk. so before we leave i contact this citys equivilant of the kingpin and put a ten thousand gp bounty of the monks head under my name (which no one in the group knows), along with the promise that whoever kills him will get to be one of my inner circle. so we leave for my hoard and send Shirt in first. he gets fucked up by something and paralyzed. so we leave him and shirt at the entrance and continue. phase spiders appear and we fight. the kid get injured and our druid goes full fucking molly weasly "NOT MY DAUGHTER YOU BITCH" crazy and murders them all. red and shirt rejoin us. we arrive in the treasure chamber and it is glorious. only problem is theres a guy inside. bald, black robes, glowing pink eyes. i recognize him from somewhere, and thats where we left off last night. cliffhanger. even better the monk did a solo session in the city after we left and him and the dm wont tell us what happened, or if he died or not. so thats gonna be fun. so yeah thats where we're at rn....
