shortymac: Okay who is the organizer of the FARK Skype RPG group? Hell I will even play pathfinder/3.5.

I've been craving an RPG game for a while now. EIP


IronJelly seems to have vanished, so I'll take the position as DM (unless they come back).

It will be Pathfinder, Core Rulebook only (APG is a maybe for now). EIP for players interested.

Requirements: Skype with mic, maptools latest version (it's free, runs on java). Rough guess at time would be Thursdays at 7pm eastern.

Nerd bachelor parties.

I coulda made some GOOD money.

Some 21 year old WOW nerd wants a hot chick in a French maid outfit to join their LAN party? To play Super Smash Brothers and wipe the floor with them with Ness while only wearing a g string? To strip off a Princess Zelda outfit and end up wearing only Hylian shield pasties and a smile?

There's a market for it.

We really should team up and start a joint nerd bachelor party and porn business.

Sure, you got the financial backing? I sure as hell don't. Medicare doesn't pay THAT great.

And I Might Be Crazy But...

That's your problem. You gotta be able to do it drunk too. It's half the fun. :) drunk I'm much better as Captain Falcon.

I live in Canada so no worries there, I was thinking about doing a joint venture with a burlesque group in Toronto who does nerdy themed shows.

I did go to B-school with a guy who worked in the porn industry as a businessman. Hmmmm maybe I should give him a ring.

Well unfortunately I'm in Indiana. Not sure how we could make that work out. Nice idea though.

Klivian: IronJelly: Klivian:
Seems like more people are sucking around trying to say "Hey, let's start a fark d&d campaign over skype using maptools!" but no one wants to be the first

Nobody is saying that.

When I suggested it last month and volunteered to DM, all i got was snark. My own D&D group generally plays over Skype, has a lot of fun, and in general has cool people and good roleplayers (and one furry) in it.

If you're actually interested in getting a game going, I've got a few ideas, and I would love to talk to potential players and see what sort of game they want, or what sort of character they'd like to explore. I've actually been writing down ideas for a "misfits" campaign where the players are all of various unusual classes or races, and I already have a player interested in being an animated scarecrow who traveled around the world out of sheer curiosity, and is now a Bard.

Given a choice, I would probably run 3.5e, but 4e is also a possibility. I've played in Pathfinder games, but have no rulebooks for it, so I can't really GM it.

I count at least half a dozen posts intoning how they want to play again but have no group

Pathfinder has everything online, don't have the link here at work, but it's all there. Very similar to 3.5 so it wouldn't be a huge adjustment.

I've only ever DMed 4E, but wouldn't be opposed to running Pathfinder. Your game sounds quite interesting though, less min-maxing than usual, more RP. Put me down as interested, depending on what time the game would be.


http://www.d20pfsrd.com/

I've been in a 4E game, and while it wasn't horrible, I have to admit that it felt like a tabletop MMO.

I've personally really liked Pathfinder. I'm running one game currently and am playing in two others. I do agree that CRs in Pathfinder are really, um... unusable. But I'm used to adjusting encounter son the fly anyway.

Solon Isonomia: digitalrain: CeroX: digitalrain: CeroX: Parthenogenetic: xanadian: Now, roll a saving throw against jizzing in your pants.

Fortitude, or Will save?

How does the DM set the appropriate DC?

Discuss.

Well, in Shadowrun, Orgasm is a spell, set against target's will, opposed roll...

Mr. digitalrain and I have a house rule. We role a responsiveness stat (4d6, drop the lowest
but you can do it however you want) and if you roll UNDER, you get off. A roll of a 1 is a multiple.

Male characters deduct 1 from their Resp stat each time they get off, so if their Resp stat is
a 12, then after the first orgasm it becomes an 11, etc...

Makes for messy game sex, what with everyone getting off so often, but its easy to keep
track of.

I guess if i were to actually make a player roll for coming, it would go as such:

Male characters: Agility+Willpower+Modifiers

Female: Body+Charisma+Modifiers

Opposed Extended Test (1 hour)

Male Successes cancel Female Successes, if Female Successes are 0 or negative, she comes. If Male Glitches, premature ejac. otherwise, come at the resolve of the extended test...

You're mixing your RPG platforms :) No Ag or Body in D&D (at least not 2.0 and 3.5).

Why would successes cancel one another out?

That was a straight up Shadowrun 4E ruleset for sex, and a pretty good one too (although I might switch out Charisma for Intuition from what Mrs. Isonomia and other women have told me). Hmmm, considering some of the characters in my current Shadowrun game, I might need to save those rules for later...


Aaaaaah gotcha. My mistake. I've never played SR. D&D, Rolemaster, BESM, Aces & Eights, and many
others, but not SR.

A promising idea, but unlikely.

Seems like more people are sucking around trying to say "Hey, let's start a fark d&d campaign over skype using maptools!" but no one wants to be the first

If someone wants to DM it, I'm down. But all I have are the 4E Core rules, or every GURPS module. Which I can probably share. I'm not sure how large the PDF's are. I even have a Warhammer fan-made GURPS conversion.

Good for a 4e or GURPS campaign.

Hubby wanted to do a Warehouse 13 like GURPS campaign, thought about setting it up during WW2 and use the Nazis relic hunters as a big bad.

EIP, count me in.


Warehouse 23 for GURPS well predated Warehouse 13, but I can't remember how close the ideas were.

*Screams and runs away instead*

Haters gonna hate.

Girion47: kiwimoogle84: Boeheimian Rhapsody: kiwimoogle84: Boeheimian Rhapsody: kiwimoogle84: This goes hand in hand with my beauty pageant/MTG tournament idea. Half her points came from poise and evening gown, the other half came from her ranking in the tournament. I'm thinking EDH format. Which they'd play in their swimsuits and heels only.

I'd win that thing so hard.

I knew i favorited you for a reason :-)

I insist I came in third in the WorldWake prerelease tourney because I was wearing a miniskirt and stiletto boots. Distracted my opponents. Also, I rule at pack wars deck building.

/I yam what I yam

I didn't get to go to the pre-release last weekend. Busy getting married. Although,one of my groomsmen wanted to do the midnight flight, but we talked him out of it. We stayed home that night and played our edh decks (slivers ftw!). Good times :-D

Oh congratulations!

Yeah, slivers are mean. I prefer personally to have a million haste black and red goblins that build on each other much like slivers- I had a deck I built that didn't have a creature that was bigger than 3/3, yet I completely ruled with it thanks to mountainwalk.

I have the keys to your heart.

I'm sorry, my old group tried Rolemaster and the more streamlined MERP several times and I always felt the complexity just bogged it down. Of course we were at least able to do a combat with it, try as I might I could never get the rules for some games to work correctly.


I am in an RM game that meets every Saturday. We've been playing for...oh...5 years now, I think.

I would never want to try to DM a Rolemaster game, but I can handle Spell Law and my own meager
attacks just fine. It lets you develop characters more fully than other game systems, I think.

I started right before 4th edition came out and quit right after Ice Ages. Most of the group I played with were only playing with cards from Beta and before.

Fancy dice thread? Don't have access to a better picture as I'm at work, but you can kinda see them, hidden in behind the minis by the book. They match my army(crimson and bone white), which is neat, but they don't treat it, or me, particularly well on the table. They're Space Marines, I'm not supposed to fail 3 of 5 armor saves on a regular basis or overheat every time I fire plasma weapons...

[img.photobucket.com image 321x295]

As to the two vague topics of the thread, gaming and geeky women...obviously I'm into all the geeky stuff, though I've never actually played a proper RPG. I had a brief brush with Fantasy Flight's WH40k Dark Heresy, but our GM had never GM'd before, and no one really got into the roleplaying aspects of it. With a much better grasp of the lore now I'd like to give it a serious shot if I could actually find a game. There was that one day where a group was in the gaming store playing while I got my ass handed to me by Tyranids, wonder if they're still together and looking for players.

As for geeky women, the only ones I know around here have all been in steady relationships for years now. Finding single ones isn't easy...


You sound like my husband. When we game, he has this constant vortex of suck around him
that makes it impossible for him to roll well - UNLESS he is rolling for our opponents, then he
rolls like a farking GOD.

Sorry. I'm (supposed to be) working, so i can't post too often today.

And yeah, my thoughts on 4e were the same. Giving fighters daily powers and turning their skills into basically non-magic spells is great for getting new players into the hobby, especially those coming from MMOs, but it isn't the same as it used to be. Traditionally the brutish types (barbarians, fighters, etc) were only good at one thing. Granted, it makes that type of character much more open to people who didn't enjoy the older style of barbarian or fighter, but still, it felt gimicky compared to my usual barbarians.

Daily powers done the way 4e did also encouraged having one encounter, then camping, then having another. How long is a day? When can you extended rest while in a dungeon? What we ultimately did in my first 4e group was to change daily powers to" burn an AP to use this power" powers. It made the daily power use a bit more common, and at the same time, made Action Points require a bit more thought for their use.

What it reminds me of, again using MMOs as a reference, is the long-cooldown clickie powers. I used to hate when someone had a power that would save the day, but didn't ever use it because of the lengthy cooldown.

Probably for the same reasons why I know more about fashion than most straight men - you pick up some of spouse's habits/knowledge.


For me? I was an only child. So, since my dad didn't have a son? Yet he did have a very tomboy daughter? Yep, Sunday football was a common thing with me and dad. We also played baseball and catch. When I got to be a teen, we rode horses together. We were one of the only Father/Daughter team roping crews in my area.

Some girls enjoy "boy" things. Some boys enjoy "girl" things. Or, perhaps better put - people like different things.

And I'll have you know my fantasy football team is a thing of wonder. PPR Keeper league with Calvin Johnson and Ray Rice. *sigh* Now if I could just get a reliable second RB..... Darn you concussions....

I understand the (supposed to be) working thing. Doing it myself, we're being audited by the parent company today though, so the boss is keeping lab work to a minimum so they'll have less to scrutinize.

It's not even that I roll bad, the dice flat out mess with me. Case in point from this past weekend...

My veterans have dropped from orbit into the middle of the field against a force of Chaos Marines, their drop pod boxing the enemy's Land Raider into terrain so if he wants to move he'll have to risk immobilizing himself plowing through the ruins on his flanks, just as planned. There's a squad of traitor marines in shooting range, right in the open, the perfect target. They choose to fire Vengeance rounds, which will ignore the enemy's armor, but have a chance to overheat on a 1 on a d6 to hit, which would force an armor save. Ten shots, nine hits, no overheats. Almost an absolutely perfect to hit roll. It's now 4 or better on a d6 on each to wound with no saves, they're going to gut the traitor marine squad...

Eight 1s and 2s. One single wound. Such is my life in the grim darkness of the far future, the dice gods are cruel.

They choose to fire Vengeance rounds, which will ignore the enemy's armor, but have a chance to overheat on a 1 on a d6 to hit, which would force an armor save. Ten shots, nine hits, no overheats. Almost an absolutely perfect to hit roll. It's now 4 or better on a d6 on each to wound with no saves, they're going to gut the traitor marine squad...

Eight 1s and 2s. One single wound. Such is my life in the grim darkness of the far future, the dice gods are cruel.


*Cringe* Sometimes the dice just hate.

My worst during 40k was at a tourney in Atlanta right before 4thed went live. Not only do my DarkAngels (at the time, stand and shoot) have to go against SpacePuppies(CHARGEHANDTOHANDRAWR!) played by a friend of mine that often beats me with that particular list - the mission we pull? I have to CHARGE him, retrieve the emissary and return the emissary to a safe zone. Right. Ohkay. This is gonna be bad.

First round - I go first. I move my only troop transport up, which has my captain with the Sword of Secrets within. He and his buddies are the only hand-to-hand I have in my entire army. I fire my lascannons, artillery and such. I couldn't hit water if I fell out of a boat. A boat with water in it... *sigh* His turn, he fires his ONLY lascannon. It crits the transport, and kills everyone inside as they all fail their saves. *sigh* Wow. Okay, this can't much worse as I watch his entire army move close enough to sneeze on me.

Second round - I fire my lascannons and then the my lone artillery ... which deviates the maximum possible distance. RIGHT on top of the emissary's head. Like EXACTLY on top of the model. And it only hits him. Not a single of the three groups he has surrounding it. Wow.... At this point I begin to cackle and just screamed out, "TO OUR DEATH'S MY BROTHERS!" And I charged his entire army while we both laughed like lunatics.

I had no models on the table by the end of round three. Total bloodbath. However I did win, "Best Warcry" for that particular little fiasco.

Oh, this applies.

It's certainly tempting, but I don't think I can. Thursdays are my day to get drunk at the bar. 

Also I don't think I should - I stopped because I have enough time sinks these days.

Ok I really suck. Apparently y'all will have to copy and paste that one. It's funny though :)

...click the little picture icon? Second from the right, and it has a mountain on it. Am I missing a joke? If so, I hope I look REALLY stupid.

Also, an amusing picture there.

Hot nerd chicks that play D & D? They exist. I dated one of them many years ago. Star Trek & D & D were her loves. I never cared for any of it, which is why she dumped me.

Klivian: Requirements: Skype with mic, maptools latest version (it's free, runs on java). Rough guess at time would be Thursdays at 7pm eastern.


...nevermind...
