Swordmages are essentially fighters that use magic to get more stronk. It'll be familiar, yet fresh.

Hey! Anyone wanna join in our FJ "roll-playing" game?
It uses FJ *roll* commands to come up with goofy, outlandish actions.
Summoners use "roll user", illusions and magic based on "roll picture", etc. It's simple, lighthearted, and goofy. If you're interested, check it out here:

I'd have mentioned it earlier but I never realized we have a TT gaming board.

if you have a specific race you want to be they are usually pretty flexible. For example I picked my race as wyvaran, which is pretty much a bipedal dragon looking thing.
User avatar #11348 to #11346 - darkoblivion ONLINE (18 hours ago) [-]
so i'm guess nows the time for my character to just show up and start asking questions then?

Apologies if this is too spammy. But I just wanted to show off my 40k minecraft server.

What it is is a clan RP server where you can choose either Imperium or Chaos on either side of a big world. Then you can apply for a faction or join existing ones.

In the middle is a storm that blocks passage, but every 6 hours the storm opens up. In this zone are a bunch of resources that you can mine for, these resources can make all the power armor, lasguns, bolters, and ammo. So then you can attack the heretics on the other side.

I've added custom guns, textured the bad mobs, and added special weapons and armor. Soon I will be adding lore appropriate spells that people can use.

website is www.pwmc.us

ip is mc.pwmc.us
User avatar #11327 to #11324 - sptnfouroneseven (06/25/2015) [-]
So I decided to come check out your server. Got booted cuz lolinternet, came back to all my shit gone(Given it wasn't -that- much but still shitty) along with a furnace...

Have fun with that information.
User avatar #11328 to #11327 - failtolawl (06/25/2015) [-]
now im all upset and stuff
User avatar #11329 to #11328 - sptnfouroneseven (06/25/2015) [-]
It looked fun, really did. But that's shitty as fuck, and honestly a community like that is pretty bad. It was obvious I had just started.
User avatar #11330 to #11329 - failtolawl (06/25/2015) [-]
well I mean, factions have protection. Having your stuff stolen happens in every minecraft server ever.
User avatar #11331 to #11330 - sptnfouroneseven (06/25/2015) [-]
Yes, I fully understand. But it's the fact they literally took EVERYTHING from a player just starting out. That gets me.
User avatar #11322 - sptnfouroneseven (06/24/2015) [-]
So did anyone else realize or know that in Pathfinder/3.5 with Paladin archetypes you can make fucking velociraptors and T-Rex fly and be a fucking holy goddamn dinosaur? Or breath fire...
User avatar #11334 to #11322 - rockmanfan (06/26/2015) [-]
well, yeah. tyrannosaurus mount+ angelic aspect is fucking incredible. my paladin used that shit to great effect once.

I want to get into tabletop gaming but I've never played any in the past. Monopoly is probably the last board game I played with anyone. I'm really interested in it and someone once invited me to a game a few months back but I forgot his name.
User avatar #11326 to #11316 - kytonlord (06/25/2015) [-]
For roleplaying games, I recommend Pathfinder or perhaps the latest edition of D&D.
Nothing by White Wolf, unless you trust your player group to not get completely ridiculous (WW games typically have less mechanics and more story/fluff options so it's up to the players to keep the game in line, rather than being restricted by rules)

For other analog gaming, I recommend Smallworld, Catan / Settlers of Catan, Boss Monster, Dominion, and Carcassonne.
All of those games are rules-light and easy to learn, but have a lot of deeper strategy to get into as you practice.
And if you want to break out the big guns (and you have a masochism fetish) there's always Arkham Horror.
User avatar #11340 to #11326 - darkoblivion ONLINE (06/29/2015) [-]
Can confirm that D&D 5e is simple enough to learn. I may not be confident enough to teach but I sure as hell can play, granted i've been playing twice a week since january or so. but i've felt this way since maybe february.
User avatar #11320 to #11316 - bminous (06/23/2015) [-]
Assuming you mean board games and not pen-and-paper games like D&D:

Two of the first "real" board games (not Monopoly, Life, etc.) I played that got me into the hobby were Catan and Ticket to Ride. They're relatively easy-to-learn games that are a lot of fun and take an hour or less. From there, I'd look around boardgamegeek.com and see what interests you.

Make sure you have friends who are also willing to play.

dming a small improvised campain, using charactersheet.co.uk/pathfinder for character sheets

is there any online tool in which i can easily import either the entire sheets or just stats and then calculate the damage dealt/taken in combat?

or am i stuck with doing that manually?

Hero Lab might be what you're looking for, but you'll have to buy it. There's a free trial if you want to give it a try before you buy it. www.wolflair.com/legacy/index.php?context=hero_lab&page=pathfinder_roleplaying_game

Beyond Tabletop offers a character sheet tool for Pathfinder which may help you, not sure, but it's free so it might be worth taking a look at. www.beyondtabletop.com/

Looking for a group to play with online. Will be playing a Gunslinger.

Nearly an absolute noob at it, saturday midday as of American standard time preferred.
User avatar #11298 - rockmanfan (06/18/2015) [-]
so, how do you make the BBEG actually unique and memorable?
User avatar #11309 to #11298 - krasnogvardiech (06/20/2015) [-]
Detail and Scale. Basically what ithinkimightbelost said. If it's actually memorable, then there will be things to remember.
User avatar #11308 to #11298 - ithinkimightbelost (06/18/2015) [-]
Personally I think that the best and most memorable BBEGs are also the most human. It's easy to forget a villain who simply wants to carve out his own kingdom or lust for power because villains like that are a dime a dozen.

One of the best BBEGs I ever came across came from a game that started off as a run of the mill game that eventually turned into a year-long investigation into why a ridiculous number of people were disappearing. Whatever it was that was that was taking people was traveling and leaving behind both necromatic and demonic creatures in its wake, so we followed it, always seemingly too far behind it to learn much.

Cue travel and investigation montage.

When we finally caught up, whoever it was had managed to capture and drag away every person from a small town. What we came across later was something none of us were able to forget as a haggard paladin wearing holy symbols long ago shredded and destroyed holding down an NPC we had come across before on top a crudely built altar, already soaked in blood and already surrounded by the bodies of men, women, and children he had already sacrificed. The remaining townspeople had been corralled by a group of lesser demons waiting their turn.

What bothered us the most was that we knew the paladin, once a king from a couple campaigns ago who had been on the losing side of a war we took part in. Our party had cracked the gates to the city, kicked down the castle doors, defeated champions and the king, were rewarded for our victory, called it good, and left.

Here he was again looking like he had aged several 10s of years in the span of only a handful, openly weeping surrounded by the bodies of innocent people, puddles of puke around his feet as he guts our NPC and continues to cry, bending over to dry retch loudly as a demon dragged the body off the altar and grabbed another to replace them.

We intervened and killed the demons, cue 2 session fight with an epic anti-paladin/avatar of a dark god who manages to give our characters the shitkicking of their lives before we manage to take him down. We find out that after we left the war he had been expected to be given fair terms only to face inhuman torture enough to break ten men while his wife and children faced even worse while he had to watch before they were finally all staked to what remained of the city gates and left to hang as a testament to the city's fall. He begged his god to help him, to do anything that would let him at least protect his family, but his god refused to interfere with the world directly and he was abandoned. He was left to die, but an evil god offered him power for his vengeance, but the paladin refused and told him that he would do anything if he could just have them back. The god agreed and searched through his memories, pulled one out, and showed it to him. He had told his wife that "there is nothing under the sky that I would not do for you." Memory in hand he told the paladin that this would be what he would use and planted power directly into his soul.

He took the bodies of his family and dragged their souls back through the immaterium and locked them away before presenting one of the kindest and most righteous men in the world his task: he would offer the god the souls of husbands, wives, sons, and daughters in exchange for his own. Failure or refusal meant the destruction of his own soul and the eternal suffering of his own family. In his grief he had agreed before knowing what it was he was agreeing to with a memory and a piece of his own soul used to craft the pact. All he wanted was his wife and children back and the god, for his own amusement, would drag him through hell make him do the unspeakable with his own hands.

make it annoying as fuck in some sort of way

like THAT guy that always escapes / fucks up something / has some extremely annoying spell or setting he abuses (like traps or mazes and etc. )

don't be quick to have him die. If he needs to die , it must be after he has willingly bet everything on destroying the adventurers.
Not just " I'll use all my powers and combat skills but if I see they're still winning there's nothing I can do and I'll keep bashing them until I die" . At that point he should either escape or start activating some trump/trap cards. Or both.
User avatar #11305 to #11303 - rockmanfan (06/18/2015) [-]
ah, iwas thinking more of the typical "all-powerful-akin-to-a-god" type of guy. i already made a guy so annoying the group i was DMing got pissed basically anytime they went up against him. a telemancer. specifically, a wizard with the conjuration (teleport) subschool. plus, he could silent cast all his spells. they fucking HATED him.

Im in the brain storming idea for a DnD campaign(im going to custom make) The basic idea is that the party is part of a large group sent to a Large island, to deal wtih the threat that is there, They barely make it on the island, as the one of(if not the only) party to survive the trip(island is surrounded by let's say dragons and other monsters, protecting the skies and the seas of the island, to deter people from entering or leaving) I will give them a basic idea of how to go about it(If they want to leave, they need to find a way to deal/kill the 'dagons' and make sure they have a working ship to survive the trip leaving the island, This will be the ONLY way they can leave the quickest without a very high chance of instant death) I want opinions, Ideas and possible encounters, locations, even creatures  and such, If I like your idea, I will encompass it into the campaign, and give you full credit, I may open a google document so people can leave more info. The basic theme is think along the lines of more twisted and horror(System is pathfinder, Tech is basic firearms guns wise) If you guys want to help, Cool, If not, Thumb this down into oblivion, And I will never ask this again, I will update if this see's enough interest. I will be here, Awaiting any input, I hope you guys can help me create a truly desolate, and dangerous campaign.....And if I get it complete, I will officially upload the campaign for all to use(after one successful game is done with it)For Free of course.

not too sure how logical it is to have lots of dragons flying over an island all the time

avoid spoonfeeding them info on how to survive/escape , it should be more interesting that way

have a satiety/thirst meters

have at least one entity that is too OP for them to kill unless they think of an ingenious way to do so and have it appear once in a while to disrupt their rhythm. Must be of rather low intelligence and/or speed otherwise it would kill them very fast ofc. Keep it flexible, if you can prepare a grid for the entity to roam and have it eat/drink/fight as a mindless beast. Don't forget it's fully normal for it to hear them fighting and come in the middle of a fight. No need for it to specificly chase them unless it needs something from them (or if they have enraged it once).

have them need fire for warmth and shelter to preserve temperature / protection from enemies (or rain, not to be underestimated since it can reduce body temperature severely)
also attacks during sleep from which they need to run are vital to make them feel desperation until they have found a secure place

bonuses: have a volcano eruption / tsunami / hurricane

Just about anything I can think of unless you're willing to have pirates shipwreck there during a storm (which would prevent flyers from attacking them) but being mostly alive and basicly ending up in the same predicament as the adventurers.
User avatar #11271 to #11270 - rockmanfan (06/15/2015) [-]
keep the party a semi-low level, like 5-7. it gives them enough magic to do usefull things, but not enough to completely overwhelm any encounter. also, make sure there's different parts of the island with different encounter types, like mountains, beach, forest, caves, the whole shebang. keeps it diverse and interesting. maybe have a tribe of lizard folk or kobalds, totally native and hostile.
User avatar #11272 to #11271 - blackmore (06/15/2015) [-]
Neat, But also I want to go with the idea of that SERIOUS shit is going on, Like cosmic horror levels, Idea is that there is something/someone making everything go to shit( I would of added it above, but I want to keep the core idea that, Core, This is adding flavor. Like the idea is that mutants and shit and people bursting into monstroties right infront of them, But this is just an idea, Thanks for your input.
User avatar #11278 to #11272 - wakami (06/16/2015) [-]
Yeah, you may want to open up a copy of Elder Evils, as it covers and can give great ideas for god-like eldritch abominations.
User avatar #11273 to #11272 - rockmanfan (06/15/2015) [-]
that wouldnt be too hard to do. maybe the tribe worships an old, forgotten god, and is searching for bodies that wash up on the beach to sacrifice.
