I've also jumped on the Destiny bandwagon also. My ID is UnnamableDave if anyone wants to add me.

Holy shit

The only disappointing thing about this awesome video is we didn't get to see the payoff

Not necessarily a podcast but I've recently streamed as heavily plagiarised dungeon world game on funsponge

As GM on a forum game with some close friends who live far apart, I took over for a player's account (with his permission) and played as his character when he quit the campaign. The rest of the group never caught on to it, and the campaign has long-since finished.

You are a genius

I'm more than happy to pay, it's the least I can do.

General Chaos / Gaming Confessional
« on: June 12, 2014, 06:14:12 PM »
After sharing many gaming stories with many friends I've come to realize that the vast majority of them are pointing out that I have been, much like our own Ross Payton, a horrible monster.
Brothers and sisters, I have sinned most heinously and so must confess my sins lest I continue.
To this end I have opened this topic in the hope that you too, the beauteous masses of RPPR, shall confess for your transgressions and be pure in the eyes of the mighty Gygax.

With that said, Here is my confession for the 19 years I have been playing.

  • I have, as a DM and as a player, fudged dice rolls to make for a more interesting game.
  • During a Call of Cthulhu d20 game I allowed two of my players to play Black rapper stereotypes thus sabotaging my own game. I later killed off one of the Black rapper stereotypes when he consistently passed constitution checks against tranquillizers in a railroady scenario, the Cultist leader got annoyed and shot him in the head.
  • Much like the above confession, I have consistently allowed players to play characters that are detrimental to the party and social contract.
  • I own Call of Cthulhu D20.
  • I once penalized the players at the finale of a scenario for not including a generator when setting up heavy machinery. In my defence they were talking in great detail about what they were obtaining through the Dilettante's vast wealth so I figured that two can play that game.
  • I once used vast quantities of traps from the Grimtooth's traps splat books in a D&D dungeon.
  • I have made deliberately broken and pointless characters based around a single joke because I was disinterested in the game that was being played.
  • I have talked to other people about my characters.
  • I regularly LARP.
  • I have abandoned Campaigns because I have become more interested in the new shiny ruleset/setting I have just picked up.
  • I have abandoned the new shiny ruleset/setting for a newer shinier ruleset/setting.
  • I have had a tendency to backseat GM.
  • I have stolen the spotlight and unthinkingly neglected to give it back.
  • In the past when I roll badly, I am progressively less likely to enjoy the game.
  • I often gloss over mechanics that I find uninteresting in favor of flavor and story.
    I have spoilt my players by being far too lenient in Call of Cthulhu scenarios (I know this conflicts with the above confessions but this is more recent).
  • I have used far too many modular adventures/scenarios.
  • I have railroaded to an extent that rivals the orient express.
  • I try to maintain focus on the game but can easily be distracted into off-game conversation.
  • I have used "I" far too many times in this confessional.

It is more than possible that I have missed many other instances of my misgivings as a player/GM and will add them when they come to mind.

So RPPR, are you willing to confess?

RPGs / MAOCT plot hooks
« on: June 02, 2014, 06:15:38 PM »
Hey guys,
I'm running a MAOCT one-shot this coming weekend and I wanted to see if my plot hooks pass muster. This is my first "Pull plot outta my ass" monsters game so I wanted to do it justice using the players relationships in conflict.

So here's the hooks

Romance - Kitsumi/Billy
Kitsumi's monster Mr Tickles has fallen for Billy's mom Jene after she brought her famous green jelly dessert to a neighbourhood BBQ. He has been talking to her via chat rooms, they've arranged to meet. What will happen?(I know I stole this from the core book)

Bad Blood - May/Jenny
Jenny misplaced her journal. May's sister Susie has been bullied by Jenny's little brother Dave Jr. After she finds the journal she finally has some leverage to use against him. Things might just escalate.

Politics - Ash/Billy
At a wargames club Ash is kind of a big deal. Billy wants to start a Warmachine game. Ash's monster Space marine deems him a heretic and wants to burn him.

Crime - Ash/Kitsumi
Ash's Dad is blackmailing honoured grandfather. He knows his real identity. Who is he?

Friendship - All Kids.
Totoro loves nature but Barry Cottontail's mean head loves eating foxes and Sarge loves blowing things up and that beaver dam looks like a good target. 2 vs 1 monster smack down. Will Space Marine come to Totoro's defence as he loves defending the weak? Will Mr.Tickles help anyone?!

I've just picked this up myself and it's quickly forcing its way to the front of my queue.

Every session all I can think of is

I forgot to add CoC - all of Caleb's scenario's with the exception of Revelations which went down really well.

I too suffer from this affliction. My list is as follows -

1. Achtung! Cthulhu. Using Savage worlds to run the Three kings and Heroes of the Sea scenarios.

2. MAOCT - After the success of my current Monsters game I really want to throw the players into the wonderful deep end of The Road Trip Campaign.

3. MAOCT/Candlewick Manor - I'm frothing at the Gills to run this just to see what happens.

4. Rogue Trader - Just to continue a previously wrapped up short campaign.
