Looking for 2 more to roleplay through Divinity Original Sin 2 as a group. The guy who posted in the last thread never reached out to the interested players, so we're just trying to organize something ourselves.

Specifics can be worked out once we have players assembled.

As much as that sounds appealing I really never understood how you go about that in a video game. Never could take the leap either separating or integrating game mechanics into a narrative.
Divinity esp has some real "crunch" to it that makes zero sense in character and really just can't be justified well. Having played a online coop of it I literally can't even fathom playing it with people who aren't going to be spending the majority of their communication simply coordinating gameplay. Only feasible way I can see it working out is if everyone has already beaten the game and understand gameplay mechanics well so you can put all that aside and work on roleplaying.

That and the general Larian setting is kinda ass and they keep changing game to game so I have no idea how to even immerse myself into that world

>> No.55829146

It's a high magic setting, all the character abilities are totally justifiable in character.

Brothermanhyll#5147, room will be created at a later date.

All Flesh Must Be Eaten is a roleplaying game about discovering what truly matters on the inside in an ongoing struggle to outrun your problems. These problems include self-doubt, figuring how to get through the daily grind and most importantly hideous monsters from beyond nightmares who wish to feast upon your very flesh.

In other words, survival horror.

This particular tale is set in a remote research facility in the year 1972.
The players, who are part of the facility staff, are thrown into a cascading nightmare when an insidious experiment is let loose inside the underground complex.

They must combine their skills in an attempt to escape this elusive threat, and on the way they will discover what truly lies beneath the skin of their fellow workers and the facility as a whole.

Get a bit of Half-Life, throw in some System Shock and a bit of Xtro and you're pretty close to what i'm going for. Exactly how badass you want to be will be discussed with the players.

Looking to give a second try to an older campaign concept that never really got off the ground because life happened. The gimmick is that the party is a team comprised of two, smaller teams that worked for two Inquisitors who have a sort of complicated relationship with one another. Now, as one team with sort of split methodologies, the group will have to manage their internal tensions and compromise on their approaches... and, of course, try to keep two masters happy. Good luck with that.

You type like a fag and your shit sounds all retarded. You're probably a bad GM and have a bunch of red flags that people instantly notice and flake on for. You're probably a bad player too, because you should have been making at least one or two friends throughout those failed games and keeping in touch with them to form your actual gaming group.

Oh definitely, flakes are pure cancer in every way. But there's still a massive failure on the GM's part if every single player flaked every single time. Unless you have the worst possible luck, you should be able to connect with at least one of them and keep them around as you form the next group together and eventually get a stable group of non-flakes that you get along with. If you repeatedly fail to do even this, you're likely as much of a problem GM as the flake players are.

Looking for one player, will accept pairs.
Though the Elves and Dwarves claim godhoood they are false deities who waste away from disease in their spires and thrones. Their vast Empires are not manned by their kin but by the Humans and Androids they rule over like tyrants, using them to take what they want from the younger races either by violence or thievery. There is hope for freedom though, in the Infinite world there is always a new horizon and always a place to live free of chains. So there you have your choice. Serve for power and money or risk death for freedom?
The Infinite is a science fantasy game that takes as much from 70s and 80s psychedelic fantasy as it does Spelljammer and Destiny. You play mercenaries who ride the sky between heaven and earth in massive ships looking for something to fight for, live for, or just a paycheck to survive.

Voice works for large parties with more than 4 players because it becomes hard to communicate and do something when 4+ palyers are typing at the same time, trying to talk to each other, advancing the plot etc.

At smaller numbers text works better because there wont be awkward silence moments and players sitting around and saying okay what should we do next.

Text Rp makes for a better experience overall but things will take longer with more players. The ideal number is 3 i think.

Oh and most people are uncomfortable with dolls trying to sound like girls or hearing man acting as girls.
Add the fact that on average most people who play RP games live with their parents text becomes the ideal medium for internet games.

Personally I disagree, but I can respect your perspective.

Personally, I don't care about the voices thing--if it's not working or it's a voice you can't reasonably do, you can just speak normally and everyone can use their imagination. No biggie.

As for awkward silences, that's a matter of GM pacing and players being able to stay on-task or interact naturally during pauses. If there are awkward silences at the table, it's a game pacing problem that can be fixed.

I also can't agree that text is overall a better experience universally. That sounds like just a personal preference of yours, my man.

The game is a political game centered around courtly intrigue in a VERY low-fantasy world on the cusp of Industrial Revolution. Everyone will be major political player in the decaying, decadent Haasenplatz Empire as it fractures from within and without. They'll also have to deal with the Haasenplatz's allies, enemies, and this revolutionary warlord to the west who's trying to reinstate an ancient Empire...

I originally thought Hillfolk might be the solution, but the rules are a little too weird for my taste. I may just run it in a highly modified 5e. If actual battles on the field are going to be fought, they'll be done through a historical wargame.

Disadvantages are always advantageous to posses. It is never harmful. I don't understand how this game is supposed to function. It is never, ever, harmful to have more dice than fewer.

Take two gunslingers in Dogs who are exactly, 100% equal in every possible way. Now cut off the hand of one of them. That one gets an extra d4. The gunslinger who is equal to the other becomes better than him by getting his hand cut off.

How am I wrong?

>> No.55889949

It's... complicated.
Basically you use up dice, so small dice are not necessarily a benefit and may fuck you if you're not careful.
Go on the jewtubes and find a video where some people play it. You'll see how it works in short order.

>> No.55889977

See you just totally avoided answering.

It's not complicated. It can be a disadvantageous if the other guy is already more powerful than you anyhow. Not if you are equals.

I have a d8, a d6, a d6, and a d6. You have a d8, a d6, a d6, and a d6. Now we cut your hand off, and you also get a d4.

You have an advantage that we are pretending is disadvantageous.

It is not complicated. It is fundamentally bad design.

>> No.55890040 [DELETED] 

The system is fundamentally bad and very deterministic. People who like it will claim it's all about how you use your dice. But at the end of the day, it's really just about who rolled the highest.

Also, I've seen people almost die attempting to break open a window in the system.

Except that d4 is a liability. You wager it on its own and it's easily countered by your opponent's d6. You wager it alongside a d6 and you're spending two dice which can be countered handily (hah) by your opponent's one, forcing you into a consequence. At best, if you godroll and spend it well, you're only creating a swing of one or two, which isn't going to win you any fights, only slow your opponent down.

I haven't played Dogs for a few years, but that's how it always went down. Rolling more smaller dice was never advantageous to rolling fewer large dice.

Senpai, you can preach about consequences all you want. But most of that, unless serious escalation was involved, you're likely only looking at needing to be stabilized after you just power through all of your opponent's dice with your larger dice pool.

That's how every time I played dogs went down, it's a pure brute force numbers game.

>> No.55890270

Because a small dice, especially in this example, is going to very rarely make a difference and will potentially be a detriment. I could explain it, but I suspect you just want a (you) so here you are.

Why would you bother making a conflict to break open the window? Just let the player do it and move on. Fucking D&D makes people think they need to do a skill check for everything.

>I could explain it, but I suspect you just want a (you) so here you are.
The thing is? You can't explain it. You and me have exactly-equal dice pools. Now I get a "disadvantage." So I get your dice pool, and an extra d4. So I win if we both roll exact averages. I have an advantage. It is a statistical fact that my "disadvantage" makes me better than you.

>Except that d4 is a liability. You wager it on its own and it's easily countered by your opponent's d6.
Sure: if we aren't equals. But if we ARE equals, and then I have a disadvantage on top of it? My d4 is a die that you cannot counter. So I win.

Which is why this system, regardless of how fucking awesome "RPG but Mormon" is as a setting? Is fucking trash.I read it. I loved the idea. The setting was cool-as-shit, considering that it's literally mormon propaganda. The system is butt-ugly, awful trash.

What kind of system is PbtA? I've never even heard of it. Crunchy?

>> No.55906077


SJWey with a dash of mandatory LGBT issues and ERP.

It is a system where someone can -force you to be gay against your will- and you discover you were gay all along.

>> No.55906344

Powered by the Apocalypse is a rules-lite and narrative focused skeleton/-approach to game design popularized by the game Apocalypse World. Apocalypse World doesn't mention SJW shit at all, other than the fact that 'transgressing' is a listed example for your character's look. Each 'class' has a special ability that triggers when they have sex with someone, usually a PC but sometimes NPCs too. This is typically a fade to black but it could be ERP.

Tons of other developers have made use of the Powered by the Apocalypse system for their own games. A lot of them are extremely influenced by SJWs and third wave feminism kind of stuff. You can easily ignore it and just play the game, but some people don't like their games getting politicized, especially if it's an opinion they disagree with, and that's also a fair point of view.

Divinity Original Sin 2 is built from the ground up to be roleplayed to a fair degree. Like, the players are encouraged to not cooperate their players in the narrative. The combat is cooperative and the story competitive (this is obviously a huge generalization, but that's a part of the idea).

While you wouldn't necessarily be acting out your characters' decisions and dialog, there's a ton of cool non-combat roleplay you could get into. I would definitely go into it with a lot of different but parallel personality ideas for your character, because it is a video game and you might get screwed in terms of options that support your plan.

Turns out I have the first one, probably from a humble bundle or something. I've installed it and I'm gonna give it a go, since /tg/ makes it sound pretty cool.

I'm not actually sure what the time offset for the UK is off the top of my head, but it's not impossible that it'd work out depending on the exact time of the game, which hasn't been decided and will not be for a bit yet, still.
Might as well shoot me a message anyway, honestly. Worst case scenario, whatever time ends up being picked won't work.
