Hey guys, I'm homebrewing a generic ultra simple fantasy RPG with some friends (I'm doing most of the work, they just agree to beta test). I'm kinda stealing elements from other games I've encountered. Could you give me some ideas for names? I need something to say besides "our rpg". Also homebrew general, I guess.

Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. But damn, its full You are Zachary Zelnacki, newly formed Epic. Two months ago, super-powered people rose from the wea-I mean normal. Yeah, normal. You have the ability to control vectors, allowing you to change the speed and direction of any solid object within 15 yards(13 meters). You are also inhumanly tough, able to shrug off small caliber weapons. Finally, and perhaps most important, you are able to absorb powers from dead Epics, if you touch them within ten minutes of death. You witnessed an Epic fight in the local Middle school, and absorbed the power of steel manipulation and regeneration. You then uploaded the video of the battle and bought a Glock. Finally, you check around town for anything of interest. You see a poster about an Epic in Sacramento, read about a trio of Epics that took over New York City, and learned about LA. Now, what to do... >Go to Sacramento >Road trip to NYC >LA baby! >Stay here >Write In Read the last two threads at: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Epic%20Quest Number .5 is the first one, sorry if thats confusing

4e Characters Thread?

40 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Everybody hates 4e because of it's combat-centered nature. I haven't really played any other edition though, so it's great for me, so long as everyone is actually playing their character, and not just some faceless guys with swords. That being said, post your favourite 4 characters you've made and played. Image not really related.

It was a hard-fought victory, leaving you and your comrades scarred from the withering touch of vile magic. But despite the burns on your face and the sweat on your brow, you have prevailed; you have, with what seemed your last ounce of strength, slain the elven wizard that had aspired to use you as a sacrifice to attain immortality. You triumphantly march into the vault said to hold his greatest treasure, but find no gold. Instead, you find the thing most valuable to him: His sons, which he had tried to cheat death that he may continue to raise them rather than succumbing to his terminal, wasting disease. Despite his compassionate motivation his plans still required your life, and so it was a matter of your death or his. Still, that does not alter the choice now before you: What do you do with the spawn of your hated enemy?

Hey, all. I've heard good things about Burning Wheel and become interested in the product. Now, I have nothing against purchasing the books. But, I noticed that there don't seem to be any files (at least that I can find) of the new books. Before I commit to the purchase, I'd like to hear some opinions or at least be able to peruse through the books a bit. What have you experiences with it been like, /tg/?

Gunslinger/ Gun users edition Is this a terrible idea for a Gunslinger-esqu character? Mysterious Stranger 1/Trench Fighter 3/Divine Hunter Paladin 2? and which to advance for the most power?

Horror Scenarios and Ideas

51 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I don't see a horror gaming general, so... How about we share some horror scenarios. Not just spooky hooks, but full scenario ideas--what's the big reveal that might drive the PC's mad? What's the horrible thing that's dragging people away into the night? It can be a movie, a game you played in or that you'd like to run, or just some weird thing you thought up. Pictures and stuff welcome.

Fantasy Systems that aren't D&D

I want to compile a shortlist of fantasy systems under some general groups for an infograph, but don't really know where to start. What would you flagran/tg/rognards like to see?

Grimdark DRM

You've got Steam which is essentially the Imperium of Man where we all worship a being as a God Emperor (Gaben). It's the Client we all believe we should know and love; and to not love it is considered HERESY! Despite the fact it had flaws, a rough start and that it appears to have fallen into a state of decay (a lot of people are not happy with the direction Valve is taking with Steam) we hold onto it as our only hope since we could arguably do a lot worse. Which brings me on to the next point, The Forces of Chaos. The Ruinous powers. Your Ubisoft and EA pretty much with their Uplay and Origin. Also can kind of include Activision in this. They offer shinny titles and try to undermine Steam at every turn with their tempting AAA games full of shine. But if you sell your soul to them you find there lies a bug riddled mess. While it may look pretty the gameplay is often shallow and repetitive and you never quite get complete satisfaction from them. Before you know it you seem to be shelling out $60 for an incomplete game each year and a further $60 of DLC. Constantly repeating a cycle for a game you thought looked good but once you play it, it appears to be a linear experience offering very little in terms of gameplay. These are as such the ways of daemons, to lie and mislead us! Now you got Indie Developers, the Orkz. They can be a lot of fun and can be a good cheap laugh, but left unregulated they can mess everything up. Think your average Kickstarter/Early Access with good reputation. Not to be confused with the next group. The Shovelware Developers. These guys are your Tyrannids and their only purpose is to make a buck by sucking your wallet dry. Essentially your typical Steam Greenlight Game (yes I know there are good titles but unfortunately there are far too many terrible ones). They copy/steal an idea and reproduce it cheaply to cash in on the current trend while producing a minimal viable product.

Ryukuza Quest: Protector of Smiles and Oni Slayer

154 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Stage 45: The only things worse than information is not having it. You wake up slowly, mostly because you're very warm. Not uncomfortably so, but it's the kind of warmth that radiates from you to be trapped inside the blankets and makes you even warmer. Yui is lying on a small mat next to your futon, eating shrimp flavored rice chips and reading a book, of which there are several in the pile next to her. There is also a tea service and the scent of the tea makes your mouth water. Kiki-hime seems to have left, but Er Yin-sensei is sitting in a half-lotus position at the left side of the futon, her unseeing eyes staring at the wall across from her. Her hands are cupped below her breasts and her thumbs and little fingers are pressed together while the rest of her fingers are curled together – a mudra, one of the Buddhist hand-positions they use for their prayers and rituals. Your mouth goes dry just as quickly as it went wet, as you gaze at the cheongsam garbed seer. Her tail shifts slowly as you gaze at her and she places her hands on her legs. “Good morning, Ryukusa-sama.” The intense warmth fades to a more normal, gentle warmth, which is nice, but not nearly so sleep-inducing. Yui glances at you then pushes herself up and hops to her feet. “I'll let Kiki-hime know you're up, aniki!” [] Hold that thought Yui-niji-chan. I need some time with Er Yin. [] Okay, niji-chan. Thanks. [] How is she taking all this, first, Yui-chan. [] Actually I have a job for you.... [] Thank you niji-chan. And thank you for letting Kiki-hime know too.

Sell me on : D&D 3.5

45 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Alright /tg/. Why don't you sell me on D&D 3.5, without any comparison to other D&D editions or derivatives (which means no Pathfinder, FantasyCraft or any D20 game at all)? I would like to try it out, but it never really appealed to me. I really don't want to start a flame war or anything, so if you don't like 3.5, please refrain from shitposting. Well, do that even if you like 3.5. For references, I'm familiar with most RPGs out there aside from d20 stuff and GURPS, and have been playing and trying new stuff for almost twenty years now, so feel free to use other games for reference if that can help.
