Ive got a couple of weird physics related dnd questions, mostly due tot he fact that if I were to ever get into a campaign, Id like to be cheap and OP as fuck.

In warlordstuart s latest "What is Dnd" comp, it was said that, and i quote, "other spell casters draw energy from a different source." So i was just wondering, is it possible for someone to make their own source, if one had the energy to do so?

Theoretically, if you were able to crack a soul gem with arcane energy/standard electricity, what would happen? Somehow i get the feeling it would be just like a nuclear fusion reaction, due to the energy inside of it.

Are pocket dimensions really just small dimension? Or just some tardis "bigger on the inside" bs?

1. You can't create your own power source.
2. I don't think anything would happen.
3. You're talking about demiplanes, which spellcasters can create, travel to and shape to their whims. They are finite in scope and their size depends on the spellcaster's power.

Also, don't be cheap and don't abuse the rules. That's a surefire way to make your group hate you.

Anyone want to help me think up some rabbit puns? I'm playing a Lepi (basically a big super-evolved rabbit) in an upcoming Edge of Empire game, and I'd love to go in with a big bag of Trix prepared.

I'd like to think I am a fairly good GM/DM. I just really hate the writing process and creating characters. I am too busy and writing characters stats is just busywork to me. I am a much better storycrafter and tbh that's how my players like it anyway.

So. I was looking for someone who LOVES to write characters. My players are going traveling to a japanese-esque land and I basically wanted my players to encounter the six samurai from yugioh. The party is level 6 and they will likely be staying in this land from level 6-12. Is there anyone out there who might be able to help me make like a bunch of potential characters?

Yo, i wanna get into D&D, and probably as a DM. Is there any place where i can read the rulebooks for free?
#9823 to #9812 - aejann (13 hours ago) [-]
In my opinion, 4th edition is a great place for new players to start. Here's all the books:

drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B-5cE1l_HXL4ZjA3NWFmMTYtYzY2ZS00MTNiLWE0ZmEtMzQ0ZTc5ZDRiM2M2

By all, I mean all. Handbooks, supplements, manuals, whatever.

If you ever go to 4chan, the 5th Edition general on /tg/ always lists out a link for the core rulebooks

How does one get into Warhammer 40,000?
User avatar #9815 to #9806 - vileplume (01/30/2015) [-]
Sensible answer go! First decide which army you like the look of the most (eg I play necrons cuz yay zombie robots from spaaaaaace) then buy the codex. Then pick up a troops choice and all the bits and pieces you need and get cracking!

Still got the phase shifter? picking up my copy later today; muchos excited xD wraiths were already awesome!
User avatar #9821 to #9820 - tmstyrant (21 hours ago) [-]
I think so, so a 3+ invul. Small point increase but still T5 with fleet and with whip coils you are attacking first.

I made my first character yesterday for my first adventure next week
I'm having trouble coming up with a background though, any helpful tips?
User avatar #9826 to #9804 - warlordstuart ONLINE (9 hours ago) [-]
my first character was a fighter. I was playing 2nd ed AD&D. My default warrior name in RPGS is Mark so i called him that. I made a joke with a friend who got injured and I told him "bend over I got a potion" not realizing we were "role playing" so we just added it to one of his player quirks. We kinda just made it up as we went along.

When the DM was explaining the dungeon, I was the one mapping it out on my sheet of paper. I was the one was read a letter from an NPC and kept it. I also solved a riddle that got us to another point.

By the end of the session we discovered that Mark's backstory was:
He was a typical farmboy that ran away from home at a young age to seek his life in adventurer. He joined up with a rather shady mercenary group and they kept him as an errant and semi-slave.

As per the times it wasn't uncommon for men that kept boys to use them for sexual release, Mark was no different than the other boys they kept. Throughout this abuse he eventually discovered he just kinda swung that way. This group would have abused him worse if Mark had not had a unique advantage over the other men. He could read and write.

Mark was invaluable as a cartographer and map keeper. He would go out and survey lands with scouting parties and the other men. He eventually grew up to be a fairly tough and well rounded fighter. One night, an argument broke out in camp and the mercenary group eventually parted ways after a drunken brawl. Mark left the troupe that night along with many others. Mark now freelances as a traveling guard and mercenary.

tl;dr - my characters backstory was made up as we went due to how I acted in the first session i played with him. I apparently rolled a gay, map making, fighter, that liked to act as a scout.

You are a disgruntled stablehand who was fed up with their lot in life and decided to try something new, running away and gaining proficiency in your profession of choice.
User avatar #9805 to #9804 - milkandboners (01/29/2015) [-]
For first character probably just go basic. You could do something similar to a movie or book you read, or just not do a deep background at all. My friends like to make themselves blind or mute, and one made him shunned by all orc society.

Is there a way i could play DnD with people but on the internet, that way I can keep being the anti-social shut-in that I am?

Also, I hear Druids are the Webster's Dictionary entry for "over powered," is that true?
User avatar #9803 to #9799 - hermaeousmora ONLINE (01/29/2015) [-]
Any of the 3.5 'full caster' classes are potential entries for 'Over Powered' in any dictionary. The potential lies in how you use them.

Here's a list of the 'Tiers' of classes, and why those classes are in those tiers.

Please, somebody help me.

I got roped into DMing for my friend's custom DnD-like tabletop system on roll20, which seemed like a neat idea.

Then I saw the mechanics.

There are catgirls. The catgirls are a peaceful, misunderstood race in harmony with nature, who are yet persecuted. His player character is one such catgirl, a magical prodigy of a 15 year old. This 15 year old happens to have mismatched eyes, no actual personality, and a big rack.

There are no difficulty checks. Whether a roll works or not is entirely dependent on if you rolled a 1, 20, or the DM. Mostly the DM.

When I woke up this morning, I was told "You're DMing in about 30 minutes", with no time to prepare a plot, maps, encounters, anything.

There's a mind control spell, that anybody of any class can learn. There are also readily available love potions, one of only 10 varieties.

Among so much more

Now, as the DM, you might be wondering WHY I need help. Why I can't just make a bunch of horrendously powerful encounters in a row until he gets the hint. Well, there are a few people in this game that are either mutual friends of ours who are pretty cool, or are people I don't know. I need subtlety, a light hand with which to exact my revenge against this system and this man without getting anybody else caught in the crossfire.

It really isn't worth playing with neckbeards. They don't care enough about the game to let anyone else do their thing (Because it's all about them, after all), and they take it too seriously for anyone to have fun with it.

That...that sounds incredibly creepy.

Things like this are exactly the reason why I waited so long to try out D&D
User avatar #9784 to #9779 - dongers (01/26/2015) [-]
Starting off I would suggest talking to that specific person in private, you will hopefully not have to say out right that you don't want to DM some hentai weeaboo shit but you could try things like "I'd rather not DM a system that is so different than what im used to" or " the way the system feels is a little too unbelievable for me to be comfortable DMing" and you could suggest DMing something else.

If the above doesn't work, heres me playing devil's advocate:

Make things hard for that guy specifically and in general be a good dm to the rest of the party but try not to make it obvious you are doing it at first but get more and more obvious. For example:
Oh they are disarming a trap? They only rolled average? Trap goes of with specified square it effects is over where that catgirl is. They question it and say its to fight against the locals who have made specific trap disarming tools for use at a distance.

If there are any class features like the favored enemy ranger class feature (small bonus to hit vs specified chosen creature types) then everything has it vs catgirls.
User avatar #9782 to #9779 - lacypushupbra (01/26/2015) [-]
I've been roped into a similar situation and we meet up Wednesday to continue it. The system is essentially the same due to most of them being new and wanting to learn it piece by piece. Anyway, one of the PCs is pretty much the one described and he would not trust anything I did. He used magic to identify all the poisons and lift the curse on all weapon.
It was really irritating but I had to deal with it until the opportunity came up to severely scar that specific character.

Starting a DnD group with a few friends. I already have dice and rulebooks covered, what else should I get?
User avatar #9785 to #9774 - dongers (01/27/2015) [-]
Are you using actual physical books? If physical then picking up some supplements could never hurt (but obviously arn't required.) if you are using online resources then make sure you have some computer with you to quickly look up rules.
What edition are you playing? If it's 3.0/3.5 then I can give you some resources that help for that specific edition but I personally havn't played any other editions.
Have character sheets ready or something to use as a character sheet that will make it to the next session. If all players have good access to computers at the time of the session (preferably all having their own) then myth-weavers.com is very useful (no asking to see a player's character sheet and them getting annoyed/paranoid just because you want to roll their spot in secret!) If computers arn't available and you don't want to print out character sheets and if you are going the printing method charactersheets.minotaur.cc/ is great then I have to tell you make entire group swears by it: graph paper, yes that stuff that you used in math classes, just use the online character sheets as a reference to know where to put shit and you are good.

Other than the stuff above the only thing you could need to being prepared. Whoever is DMing should be very prepared and the players could have ideas on characters they could play. The more prepared you are the faster you will get into the game and more you will get done, unless you were like my old group where the first hour of dnd was talking about video games and shit, which wasn't a bad thing necessarily.
Also another note to whoever is DMing: no you havn't prepared enough, yes the party won't do half the shit you have prepared, no the party won't do anything the way you expect them to, prepare for these things as much as you can before giving up and accept anything that would reasonably solve problems. Also have a bunch of things to throw in/delay the party until you have more time to prepare.

You don't need many actual things to play dnd. Books, dice, paper, and pencils are really the only things you need.
