What sort of a system is that based off? What mechanics are used?

>> No.27570498

>>27570356
To the best of my knowledge I didnt base it off of another game, the mechanics are simply a '1d100' system, in the sense that every skill is trained and attributes contribute to the percentage bonus, you can do almost anything within reason but its more about maximizing your chances of succeeding.

>> No.27570580

Yeah I guess, and in my game you're allowed to argue back at me if you think it is unfair blah blah blah, the mechanics are secondary, the role-playing is the main aspect. I plan my areas like the first Deus Ex, IE its still a railroad game, but you have so many routes that its like a free experience.

Looking to get into RP for the first time and would rather learn with fa/tg/uys than a random group where I live since my friends don't want to try and pick up Tabletop RPGs. No idea how the actual mechanics of any given system works but happy to do extensive reading on whatever system any group i'm in is playing, been lurking here for about a month so I know how things work in a general sense though.

I'm ok with voice chat as I spent my youth playing MMOs though I can't promise I won't be shy as fuck about RPing to start with because as much as I want to be super confident about it I think I won't be able to help feeling silly at the start.

As long as it's at night time for me I can commit pretty solidly to whatever day or time. I promise not to bail two sessions in as long as things don't take a severe fetish ERP turn.

If you got through my wall of text, kudos to you.

Little Fears is from a prior game I tried to join from a tg gamefinder, but I was the only one who actually checked in on the day of the scheduled game, so it was cancelled. I have a character already made that I always wanted to try out.

Sorry for the late response, I passed the hell out.

Most folks here don't mind taking on newbies. That said, I agree, face to face is almost always easiest to learn a new system. Go to Google and search for local game stores. Check them out, they usually always have a message board or push-pin board with people advertising for players or needing GMs. Alternatively, if you see a game being played, say you're a newbie and ask if you can observe.

So, the short answer? Do a little bit of leg work.

Another late response in case you can't find an in person game. Voice chat, whatever method, is way preferable to text. I've always found that text games are way slower. Besides the tiny extra bit of time to type responses people spend way more time thinking about what exactly for their characters to say. This can cause things to slow down a quite a bit.

Most groups have no trouble accepting newbies as long as you're willing to read the book. You don't have to understand all the rules 100%, but skimming through the basic rules of the system and having a general idea lessens what they'll have to teach you by a lot.

Also another suggestion: Don't limit yourself to just looking for a D&D game. There are a lot of other systems out there that are tons of fun. D&D is easily the most popular tabletop RPG but it is my no means the best.

We'll be doing text only, so no mic required. For sheets we are using Myth-Weavers, for the gametable we are using roll20, and for everything else we are using Skype. One of our players just backed out 4 hours before the first session with no reason given. Another seems to be MIA after giving the OK for today. So we have 1 maybe two slots open.

The classes I'm not allowing for goblin characters are Wizard, Gunslinger, and Psionics.

I have not but that was partly the inspiration. It was actually a culmination of different things. I made a goblin Paladin named Tode, with a pet toad. I read a lot of stuff about Goblins including that sample adventure and then our GM disappeared and never came back after the first session. Right after that I seen a thread about goblins on /tg/ and got the idea to do a goblin only campaign.

I already have the first session and an introduction to a particularly important npc.

Take all of the following with a grain of salt, as I freely admit that it is simply my opinion and that I am in no way trying to tell you how to run your game. A reasonable opinion on 4chan? You have to love /tg/.

Well, era is part of setting, and as such, can be mechanically important. Combat has changed over time due to the advent of increasingly deadly technology. In a "modern" setting, combats are much quicker and decisive, due to the lower skill barriers and more impersonal nature of gun-based combat.

It's simply my opinion that 4e is too... gamey to portray that. However, if you want want to have John Woo style "gun-kata" fights, I guess it could work. However, in that case I still think there are better systems to portray that.

Short answer to your question: Era doesn't do jack shit to mechanics. However, mechanics can change or break the mood of the era.

I have 3 players. It's Ravenloft in 2e. I can use one more. It'll be werewolf, bavarian forest, creepy-shit based.

I'll be ready in a few days--I'm not, right now.

That's nice.

Look for the GMs. No one cares what you want to play. We have jobs, and are also making time to do things for you. Respond to posts. Stop fucking posting your timezones.

You'd be surprised. I had people say they didn't want to be in a party if evil pc's were in it. One begged to be a Gnoll or Kobold.

Some GMs check these threads for replacements for dropouts, or they only need one more person. It's easier to scan the legions of player posts and pick one out than to make a posting to get their Skype/email blown up then deal with picking one from the roulette. That being said, the waves upon waves of "PATHFINDER? PATHFINDER? GIBE DM PLS HUEHUEHUE" can get a little grating.


My Game Finder pet peeve is people who go "well I can GM but I really really don't want to" or "If I wasn't busy/already running a campaign/currently on fire and missing a limb I'd GM". Either they genuinely don't want to, so why bother posting, or they just want some ego boosting by having people beg them to run a campaign.

Like Smurf Goblins?

Why isnt that guy running it yet. Anyway, as the person who has to recruit for our game, I much prefer people posting player profiles rather than posting myself, for exactly the reasons >>27598522 said. If I post, I get 6 applications for one or two slots. If I scan, find one post, see if they want to play, repeat, A) I dont have to tell anybody "Sorry, no more slots", B) I have a chance to avoid players that I know are bad or players that dont want to play in anything of the sort we want to play, and C) I like to have three things in lists.

The four most common systems played on /tg/ are DnD 3.5, DnD 4.0, Pathfinder, and the Warhammer systems (they're all mechanically similar). Learn one of those and you're set.

Im cool with everything. I'm not too interested in war settings, unless they're open enough where every character isn't a soldier.

Thanks anon! I'll read those all up. If they're mechanically similar, is the main difference setting and lore?

You might want to check out Shadowrun too then.
Pathfinder and D&D 3.5/4 have typical fantasy settings and lore and are somewhat generally similar. You may want to pass on Warhammer though.
