Hey guys, i just got back into yugioh after a very long break (I stopped around the time yugioh GX came on tv), and im really starting to love it again.

I am wanting to start playing at tournaments for fun when i have time, and i think i finally get the hang of the game enough again to play outside of the internet finally. I really want to have a custom playmat made for me to use when i play, but I am having a hard time deciding what I want for the design. It takes me ages to even pick a wallpaper for my computer.

Anybody have any ideas for what i could do for my playmat? I really want to stray away from putting monsters and stuff from the game on it, i want something different.

Pic related, i play Noble Knights.

what's one of the biggest fuck ups you've done in a game? whether it was RNGesus being a dick, or you were just phenomenally stupid for a while, what went wrong?

i was a druid in a pathfinder campaign, i was surrounded. my guy's shtick was bullrushing/overrunning, but i wasnt at a high enough level to get improved overrun. so, being surrounded, i thought the best thing to do was overrun the guy in front of me and run away. i tried twice, and the fucker saved against both. i got my ass kicked and captured.

it was a few week later when we leveled up that i realized i hadn't taken a first level feat.

Anyone have anything interesting happen in a game lately?
User avatar #11493 to #11489 - rockmanfan ONLINE (07/28/2015) [-]
as a druid, i turned into an air elemental, went inside a demon gorilla, then turned into a grizzley bear. it was like the wickerman meets alien.

I tried to tame some hatchling Lyleks in an Edge of the Empire game recently. Got a pretty bad roll and lost my left arm.
It's cool though, I can slap people and blame it on "calibrations."

Bellamina Moonsparkle.

The Sisters Of The End is a cult that meets up once every full moon. It is a low-profile gang, but it digs its roots by blackmailing / bribing political & authority figures. Another task that their lower-ranks are often given is assassination. Their end goal is to end civilization as we know it, and re-build mankind under the rule of the dark god Vecna.

There are six ranks of witch in the cult, each of which has another rank (known as a degree).
-Greenhorn: Under 2 years of cult experience.
-Tail of the snake: 2-4 years of cult experience
-Heart of the snake: 5+ years of experience
-Council: 7+ years of experience, and selection by the high council. Always 13 members. (25 members)
-High council: 10+ years of cult experience, and at least 2 years of council experience, and voted in by the council and selection of the head of the snake. (13 members)
-Head of the snake (High Priestess): 25+ years of experience, and vote by High Council.

Bellamina and her sister Liliana were raised by ex-council members of the Sisters Of The End. Their parents were female lovers, and adopted the two girls from an orphanage and began to train them extensively to become their successors and become council, or even high-council members.

Bellamina always wanted more than that, though. And through her whole life she trained to be the very best she could to one day become the high priestess. Being 27 years old and a member of the 3rd-degree high council for the past 11 years, she's currently trying to fulfill her dream and become the leader of the Sisters Of The End, and the most powerful tool of Vecna. On top of being a powerful spellcaster, she's an adept alchemist; she calls it a "hobby" but it's more of an obsession. Chemistry and biology is her life. Almost all of her attacks involve venom, poison, disease, or the summoning of a venomous creature. Already planning ahead, as she assumes she will become the high priestess, her plans for world domination to claim the world for Vecna is to spread a massive plague and provide the cure only to those seen to be worthy by Vecna.

Looking for DM for at least two 3.5 characters. (This, and Liliana)

Me and one friend here looking for a tabletop RPG to play. Mostly because I'm not prepared to DM and get some of our other friends in.

I've got half of a campaign worth of experience in DnD 3.5 (with some loose rules, to accommodate for new players like myself at the time) and I've played the tutorial box thing for Pathfinder.

Other guy is new to tabletop rpgs but can probably work shit out fairly quickly.

So if there's any campaigns starting up or running but can add a couple more people, mostly any DnD-like game, hmu fam.

So /tabletop/, did FJ ever made a homebrew setting?

I need a strictly logical and systemic way of predicting what level a specific NPC should be
User avatar #11468 to #11460 - rockmanfan ONLINE (07/20/2015) [-]
is it for dnd/ pathfinder? you can use this: www.d20srd.org/extras/d20encountercalculator/
User avatar #11470 to #11469 - rockmanfan ONLINE (07/20/2015) [-]
well, what do you want these NPCs to be able to accomplish?
User avatar #11471 to #11470 - sideism (07/20/2015) [-]
retaliate against the players if they attack first.

although the structure of the game is pretty free-flowing, meaning the players could be any level when they encounter the character for the first time, so their stats have to be fixed
User avatar #11472 to #11471 - rockmanfan ONLINE (07/20/2015) [-]
aight, well, are these like farmers, or another adventuring party? if farmers, give them a few levels in commoner, maybe expert. like, 3 or 4. if an adventuring party, make them... level 7. that's a high enough level where they could feasibly be making it on their own, but not threatening to take over towns or anything.
User avatar #11473 to #11472 - sideism (07/20/2015) [-]
they are neither adventurers, nor farmers/peasants. the character I'm thinking about is like a made man for an organised crime group that already runs half the town
User avatar #11474 to #11473 - rockmanfan ONLINE (07/20/2015) [-]
ah, then have him have about 8 or 9 levels in aristocrat, or the like. if you want him to be more combat-savvy, make it levels in rogue or bard.

trying to figure out a system for figuring out the NPCs' levels >>#11460,
User avatar #11476 to #11475 - rockmanfan ONLINE (07/20/2015) [-]
have you considered just looking up pre-made NPCs, and choosing ones that seem to fit the situation?
User avatar #11477 to #11476 - sideism (07/20/2015) [-]
a lot of the ones I've looked at are like "all players' average level +2"

www.d20pfsrd.com/bestiary/npc-s
this is for pathfinder, but it has a few hundred NPCs of varying challenge. they often have a title, like "noble" or "monster hunter".

What kind of npc?
User avatar #11464 to #11462 - sideism (07/20/2015) [-]
or combat NPCs in particular
User avatar #11465 to #11464 - sineztro (07/20/2015) [-]
For combat I would!d make them (player level -2) for just mooks but for leader type guys I would say (player level+2)
User avatar #11467 to #11465 - sideism (07/20/2015) [-]
I mean NPCs that are the same level regardless of the players' level
User avatar #11479 to #11467 - sineztro (07/20/2015) [-]
Challenege level rating (i.e. how challenging you want the npc to be (super challenging = +5 super easy -5 level) plus lore (if lore behind character proves he is strong +1 level if not - 1 level or 0) Plus level characters first encountered characters name i.e. if your players heard of strombolli at level 10 strom bolli (a strong fighter with magic) he would be level 15

any type of NPC

I'm running a pathfinder game where the setting is a bit like fantasy Africa. The PCs are currently trying to unite a bunch of tribes in rebellion against an orcish warlord. I'm looking for different types of tribes for them to find and try to work with. Suggestions?

Dinosaur tamers, lizardfolk, nocturnal drow, Githyanki/Githzerai slavers, [deity of death] worshipers (think voodoo), half-orc outcasts, sand giants, [deity of war] worshipers.

It's more fun if you make the various groups have complex(ish) relationships so the players have to pick which ones to help/hinder (or high roll diplomacy/intimidate/persuade).

Complete noob here. I'm looking to maybe get into some Star Wars RPG games, probably play-by-post forums. I have no idea how tabletop gaming works but I've always been interested in it. So how would I go about learning the basics of it all?
User avatar #11450 to #11449 - rockmanfan ONLINE (07/18/2015) [-]
read the core rulebook or the equivalent of. that's honestly the best way to learn it. hope you like words.
User avatar #11451 to #11450 - penultimatewriter (07/18/2015) [-]
So the core rulebook will show me the tabletop basics?
User avatar #11452 to #11451 - rockmanfan ONLINE (07/18/2015) [-]
probably. never played a starwars RPG, but it should tell you "how to play". but, if you need a crash course:

step 1:roll dice
step 2: do math
step 3: look up rule for whatever.

I'm making an undead lord with a skeleton companion (I don't remember the exact word but it's an undead creature I control). If my skelly is brought to 0 HP, being destroyed, can I bring him back or do I have to get a new one?
User avatar #11454 to #11447 - hasegawa (07/18/2015) [-]
if the skeleton is at 0 hp it is destroyed, but you can add a bloody template, and then it can't be destroyed unless its killed with a holy aura or healed to death

A bloody skeleton has fast healing equal to 1 per 2 Hit Dice it possesses (minimum 1)

A bloody skeleton is destroyed when reduced to 0 hit points, but it returns to unlife 1 hour later at 1 hit point, allowing its fast healing thereafter to resume healing it. A bloody skeleton can be permanently destroyed if it is destroyed by positive energy, if it is reduced to 0 hit points in the area of a bless or hallow spell, or if its remains are sprinkled with a vial of holy water.

hope it helps
