anyone else play? it's fun
but haven't in about eight years. Would love to get back into it.
Gimme a break
I read that the 4th edition is basically a tactical miniatures game, whereas Pathfinder is a continuation of the 3.5 edition stuff.
No idea though. Not my thing.
(Wonder if this will be the only earnest reply in the thread)
but the rules are just a reference for the dm, and to keep him in check a bit. apart from that it's just a matter of the players trusting the dm to keep it interesting and get the difficulty curve right.
i've never even seen the rules tbh
Might start playing that again.
I was looking for fighting fantasy books by the way.
Next Fenino everyone is required to bring a Fighting Fantasy book
Loved all the old D&D PC games like Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale. It does require a few friends who are colossal, unashamed nerds and a reasonably charismatic one among them to be DM, though, which I don't have.
You should do a DiS D&D game. Here's my attempt from last year. I like to think we had fun.
But have similar group issues.
Some genius/nerd on Boardgamegeek has made a rule set to replace the "DM" with a single D6, which I'm totally going to try some day.
cos an acquaintance, who's played for most of his life, moved to london and i got together a bunch of my friends who are mild nerds, but open minded
Always liked the Forgotten Realms world. Bit of everything.
dm just made it up afaik. we're a motley crew of adventurers sent out to investigate a missing emmisary. ended up in some dungeons then being transported to a parallel dimension in which, when you die, you respawn but get a bit mangled each time.
all a bit middle earthy tho
cant remember the site he uses but it sounds really good, so long as you've got a good dm and everyone commits the time to it. think it'd really help with the actual roleplaying element of it cos you could really stick to your character and not worry about pissing people off.
personally, i'm probably about 15 hours (and 5 months) or so into my first game and deliberately made my character's thought process "what i hope i'd do in the situation". looking forward to playing another game with a bit more psychological depth and imagination on my part
it was ace!
Maybe pick a day the boss ain't sat next to me though :)
Maybe theme it round the European elections ;)
successfully rubbed your balls on the sword
if you dont already
that's a great idea, assuming you mean "option with the most thises is taken"?
Obviously would require someone with a lot of free time and excellent copypasta skills.
confronted with the reality i've lost enthusiasm - lots of reading!
Also a fan of Call of Cthulhu.
just to have, no intention of playing it.
Couldn't think of a lonelier situation though...
Pathfinder is the way to go if you want D20.
Smart geeks play Savage Worlds though.

would be fun to do it in character screen names, except the mods would still ruin it by publishing aliases
that would be much better to use.
Played all through my teens, most weekends, back when there were more hours in the day.
When I grew up and the days got shorter, I occasionally got together with friends for gaming. By then I’d lost pretty much all interest in Fantasy as a setting, so it was mainly Cthulhu type games in 20s and some steampunk nonsense.
You’re right, with the right people and setting ideas it can be enormous fun. Exciting, moving even – but with the wrong people it can be pretty appalling. And in my experience (and somewhat prejudiced opinion) the hobby attracts a huge amount of the wrong ‘uns.
