The Posting Range / TTRPGs [Time To Really Play [some] Games]
« on: June 06, 2016, 09:45:52 PM »
TTRPGs are really cool! It's fun to go on dumb adventures and beat up goblins and orcs and kobolds. That said: I'm a little tired of D&D! I've played a whole bunch of it. I want to mix things up! I want to have new-ass adventures that don't start with players escorting a wagon and ending inside a dungeon. I want to tell new stories and I want you guys to help tell them! What I'm saying is, let's create some fiction in an interactive manner.

I picked out a couple of TTRPG systems that have caught my eye recently! They all have different strong points and depending on what gets picked we could end up with wildly different kinds of games. Let me know which systems sound the coolest but more importantly let me know what kinds of adventures you want to have!

shit. let's be goku

Exalted is basically Shounen Anime: The RPG. In D&D, characters start out as strong guys who do odd jobs for assholes and end up fighting gods and single-handedly toppling empires. Exalted jumps straight to the good shit: Player characters are all but demigods right from the start, and only get stronger from there. Exalted's all about telling large-scale stories and larger-than-life conflicts.

*A desperate king wrangles together a rag-tag team of wayward assholes to turn the tides in a dire war
*A bunch of super-powered jerks team up to take over and/or destroy the world. And those jerks are You.
*Literally Just One Piece

+Open-ended character design! No more knights, wizards, and monks! Use that crazy imagination of yours!!

-More of a storytelling game than a tactical RPG (is this really a negative?)

to boldly go and get that space paper

Warhammer is a very traditional table top series, and Rogue Trader is as traditional as this list gets, with one minor exception: It's in Space! Space battles, highly disposable crew members, horrifying aliens await your team of Explorers on their way to vast space riches.

*Be Space Pirates! Travel the galaxy, loot planets, terrorize and exploit the local populace for your own gain!
*Be Space Explorers! Travel the galaxy, loot planets, terrorize and exploit the local populace for the good of the Empire
*Star Trek? What if we just did star trek

+Starship battles! Take command of The Enterprise Your Very Own Colony-Sized Ship And All The Disposable Resources Therein
+There is a SHIT TON of prefab material for me to pull from. Not just in terms of actual campaigns, but also world-building.

-There can only be one Captain
-Mechanically dense, easily the least beginner-friendly of list

this one's just 4e lite

I like D&D 4e a lot. It's a damn good tactical combat simulator. But I'm sick of low fantasy, and I know some of you are sick of 2-3 hour sessions where we spend an hour an a half on one fight. Strike! takes the best parts of 4e (THE COMBAT) and streamlines it, while making changes to the rest of the system to allow for more flexible storytelling, both in terms of setting and the moment-to-moment dice rolls. Strike's website explains this pretty succinctly:

Instead of the Success/Failure dichotomy, where Success is generally interesting and Failure is only sometimes interesting, the primary dichotomy of the game is between Success and Twists - if you don't succeed, there's a twist and the game moves forward. Maybe you get what you want, maybe you don't, but either way something interesting that changes the situation must happen.

Non-binary resolution. Despite the simplicity, there are a range of possible results on every roll. Instead of a result indicating Success or Failure, there are four or five different possible results for each roll.

+Streamlined, grid-based tactical combat a la D&D 4e! I'm talking 30 minutes per fight, tops!
+Modular setting and simple math means making encounters and enemies is really easy! That's good for me, which means it is also good for you.
+Super Simple! Every roll is a d6.

-New, smalltime indie game so way less prefab stuff than other systems.

On February 14th, Kakumei-teki himote doumei (革命的非モテ同盟) — literally, “Revolutionary Alliance of Men That Woman Are Not Attracted To”– will gather in Shibuya, an area of Tokyo popular with young couples, to protest Valentine’s Day and its roots in what they call “romantic capitalist oppression.”

The group, known as Kakuhidou for short, was started in 2006, when its founder, Katsuhiro Furusawa, returned home one day after being dumped by his girlfriend and began reading the Communist Manifesto. He quickly came to the realization that being unpopular with girls is a class issue.

Since then, the group has held several demonstrations each year, all coinciding with holidays that are associated with romantic love in Japanese culture, such as Valentine’s Day, Christmas, and White Day .

Kakuhidou’s slogans combine Japanese internet culture with classical Marxism, and its origins in cyberspace can be charted through its choice of language. For example, one frequent target of the group’s admonitions are the so-called “riyajuu” (リア充), a neologism frequently used in online communities such as 2chan to refer to those who experience fulfillment in their offline lives (riyajuu is a portmanteau that combines “real” with “jyuujitsu”, the Japanese word for fulfillment).

The release posted on Kakuhidou’s website for this year’s anti-Valentines parade says “the blood-soaked conspiracy of Valentine’s Day, driven by the oppressive chocolate capitalists, has arrived once again. In order to create a brighter future, we call for solidarity among our unloved comrades, so that we may demonstrate in resolute opposition to Valentine’s Day and the romantic industrial complex.”

At previous events, leaders of the group have yelled slogans such as “I hope all riyajuus explode! But we’re still a little jealous!” while wearing shirts that say, roughly, “sex is useless.”

Despite the group’s left-leaning tendencies, their official vehicle is a Mercedes-Benz C220.

From somewhere, a package...

I commend the postlady for not saying the words "Package Funk" out loud when I went to pick this up.

This is a big 'un! Roughly 3 by 12 Rises!!! That is a lot of Rises!!

This is what I saw when I cracked this bad boy open. 10 oats if you can guess which game the yellow instruction manual with the Rareware symbol on it goes to.

The first thing out the box was what appears to be the instructions for a laminating machine? We're off to a great start.

It's all too much for poor Rise.

Next I found out what they used the laminator on!

A CG from Katawa Shoujo with my bird and a ghostly chef AC-DC Krem photoshopped in, signed by the artists. Bidding starts at ten thousand dollars.

Next up we've got the funnies page from a newspaper! Let's check 'em out and get our chuckle on.


That's right. Not a paper from last week, or last month, or even last year. Rick sent me the funny papers from nearly a decade ago

Evidently it was printed back when wheelbarrows were first discovered.

Next up: Some manner of badass dragon toy?

The predator looms over its prey. The prey, in turn, freezes in fear, accepting its morbid fate.

...Wait a minute. Enhance.



Upon closer inspection, it turns out this thing is some kind of transformer?

This is the most I could get it to look like a human robot dude though.

"Let's put third, wimpy arm on the back there for good measure"

Recent evidence suggests that the beast may have, at one point, been part vehicle. However, at this point, the remaing wheels are simply vestigial.

Then we've got this badass super huge skull jersey!

Edit: Extremely Badass super huge skull jersey.

Speaking of badasses, this dude suddenly made an appearance.

And it looks like he brought some gear with him!

This is a man who is ready to hit the open road and ruin some small child's day

Looks like he took part of the Rainbow Road with him...

Greenbrier International is an extremely sketchy company without a website that peddles garbage to dollar stores across the world, apparently.

I can FEEL the POWER COURSING through my VEINS

A 3DS lanyard! When I first heard about the 3DS, the 3D seemed like the coolest part, but nowadays I rarely use it! :conwayshrug:

I completely called this.

Greetings From Scenic Plastic Tree Jungle

Munchkin Bookmarks! Not really sure why a card game needs bookmarks though(???)

Whoops! Almost skipped some of this garbage.

Thanks again, Rick.

Time to get my fuckin game ON...

FFIII felt kind of heavy so I cracked it open and discovered a 50+ page instruction booklet. It's not even one of the ones with like 3 different languages, either.

The logo for former dev studio Rockstar Vancouver of Bully and Max Payne 3 fame! And underneath is

a photo taken at lesser known studio Rockstar Detroit of Paper Mario fame

A Logitech install disk from 2002! I don't recognize either of these programs but it looks like Windows 7 wasn't supported or even  existant at the time, so guess I'm SOL here!

A tie! I can only guess who contributed this one. This is actually the first tie I've ever owned because I am a tiny childe :thumbsup:
