[ERROR] No.18894940 [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

Hey, I have something I'd like to say. I watched the last two episodes at my little sister's request; she told me that it would be something I'd like .I doubted that but I watched it with her because I owed her; I did make her sit through a hour or so of Godzilla cartoons.

And she was kinda right, I did think it was interesting.... Creepy changeling queen who feeds off of love? Sound cool I suppose. This got me to thinking that maybe I could create a little game for her to enjoy; just me, her and some close friends who live near by. Nothing too serious, just fun.

So.l I was wondering what is the easiest, least crunchy system in the world? And uhm.... how could I run a game that would be interesting to her without turning it into Adventure Time, which she doesn't like?
Help and any ideas on villians or things would be nice.

>> No.18894949

The /tg/-related MLP general was exactly for this discussion. Shame that fell apart with noone to make sure the thread was made regularly.

I wouldn't call them that. From what I understand, at this point that's like calling a black guy a nigger because you think he'll be able to relate to you.

>> No.18894976

Cool, I'll look into it.
I just don't know what sort of plots to make because I don't think that she'd be up to a quest to slay the evil dragon, or descend into the underdark and destroy a fledging city of dark elves before they set up and become a threat.

>> No.18894991

For clarification, d02 is literally flipping a coin to decide the outcome.

I haven't had many encounters with low-crunch systems, If you want a reasonably simple system which is atleast a bit more complicated than that, the only thing that jumps to mind is Don't Rest your Head.

In fact, /tg/ made an MLP adaption of DRyH called Don't Rest your Hooves, but it IS geared toward horror stories, so give it a good read and figure out how to brighten it up a bit if you still want to use it.

>> No.18894992

I've been looking into what a good system would be for a MLP adventure as well. I know there are stats for characters in Pathfinder, D&D 3.5, etc. but I haven't really found anything I've liked.

No wait you seem to be under the impression that I'd be running a MlP game when that's not the case?

I just want ot run a game that she'd enjoy but also my friends would as well or at least humor them without being full on ponies; I don't know enough about the show anyways.

>> No.18895012

One of my players sent me a completely homebrewed (not by him, obviously) d20 system for MLP, but I haven't had a chance to read it. If I think it's not too broken (like most of the other ones out there), I might run it. About four of my six regulars have been hinting that they want to play an MLP game, and we temporarily split the group for certain games all the time, so I don't see why I shouldn't give it a chance.

Here's the thing he sent me.


Again, I haven't had a chance to read over it. But from what he's told me, it's not just a supplement for an existing system, but a system built for the setting, which is a good sign.

>> No.18895022

Oh. Okay.

Your OP is slightly misleading, but I can see where we had a breakdown in communication.

At any rate, GURPS (or maybe GURPS-Lite) tends to be brought up as a rules light system with many applications. Paranoia is about as rules-light as you can get without flipping coins, but the game revolves around slapstick, betrayal and dark humour, which may or may not be appropriate for the group.

>> No.18895032

>Shame that fell apart with noone to make sure the thread was made regularly.
General threads are horrible anyway, they resulted in boards such as /mlp/, /vp/ & /vg/ for a reason. To not clog up the other boards.

>> No.18895039

I savour these threads where we can rationally talk over these systems and ideas, atleast while they last.

I'm not about to contradict mod choices or global rules, but disallowing /tg/-related discussion based on the details of the setting never made sense to me.

>> No.18895043

You never mentioned how old your sister is, so I'm just going to spout of random ideas.

I'm assuming you're not looking to do a pony exclusive game, so look into old school fairy tale for plot.
Like, Trine 1/2 used a fairy tale setting that I thought was amazing.
Little bitches love enchanted shit. Give her a neato trinket to start with. Something useful.

For villain, no moral grey sillyness. Make them straight up evil. Something like a dark wizard that's kidnapping children to be ransomed for all the town's treasure.

Or something. I don't know.

>> No.18895048

I think it should be fine as long as we only talk about crunch. Once fluff gets involved, OP should ship his ass to the pony board.

Here we go again.


>> No.18895052

yeah, I see that now.
I would have posted the Adventure Time gang, which is what I'm sort of looking for in a game but with some advise on how to make it more interesting for her? As I said, she doesn't like it because "Finn is stupid."

>> No.18895056

The thread was in /mlp/, mirrored temporarily with a gateway thread in /tg/, as I recall. And it was called that mostly because the MLPG in /mlp/ was found to be the most like-minded and sane part of the entire forum, and they actually were very helpful with fluff. The MLPTG itself was geared toward the project, rather than the random discussion you expect from a general.

>> No.18895059

Did she see the rule 63 episode? I'm pretty sure there was one like that.

>> No.18895060

DAWG is a simple system about playing, well, dogs (or cats), and it has some fun adventures.

>> No.18895070

My advice is that after this thread inevitably 404's from intervention by mods trying to prevent a shitstorm, wait a little while and then post a thread asking for similar advice, with mininal or no mention of ponies. Just ask about crunch-lite systems that children and adults could both enjoy.

Then you can have your advice and discussion without anyone getting mad.

Maybe I should post some other things that I know she likes aside from MlP? I know that she liked watching Kim Possible with me, and she liked Marting Mysterey, Totally Spies. She likes Beyblade, no idea why. I think she liked WITCH and so on. She likes Edward from Twilight and didn't like the Harry Potter books.

OP, I think the easiest approach you can take to this problem is to take whatever system you are familiar with, and then strip it down so that you are left with the very basic mechanics. You work your way up from there if you need more complex rules for something. It's what I do when I want, for example, to play wargames with my little brother using Lego, and it generally works well.

But they are. They're banned on all boards except /mlp/

It doesn't matter why you believe them to be banned, your opinion doen't matter on iota.

What matters is that they are banned.

You could argue that "The reason that Pornography and Gore aren't allowed on Blue Boards is because you're all a bunch of fucking prudes" But it wouldn't matter.

The rules for Blue Boards are adhered to, without question or debate.

The rules for Ponies aren't, by people like you assuming the role of defenders of free speech. That's Hypocrisy.
