/tg/, I come here today to ask for aid in my time of need. How would one run a Kingdom Hearts game without it becoming terrible?

>Best Sportsman >Each opponent should be scored between 0 – 5 using the criteria below: >5 Best game ever - No tournament tactics were used, I was reminded of a couple of things by my opponent in my favour. We were there for fun time rather than to just win and there was plenty of hijinks and merriment throughout, it was a friendly game and I will be keeping an eye out for my new best friend >4 Awesome game - No tournament tactics were used, I felt good throughout the game. It was better than I expect from a standard tournament game. I would be happy to play again. >3 Standard tournament game - This was an expected tournament game. My opponent was here to win but did not bend the rules to his advantage. There was no drama and what issues we had we sorted, even if it was on a 4+ >Playing a tournament game style in a tournament >Penalized Errrrr...wut. So basically unless you turn around and spread them cheeks for your opponent like a simpering sycophant, you get docked.

Lucha Libre

Lucha Libre 25 posts and 5 image replies omitted. Click to view.
So, I'm utterly inspired by the story of Los Tiburon (Story: http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Los_Tiburon). I feel like he paved the way for monks to break the mundanity of a monk's roleplaying options. This makes me think to myself, "Hey, making a Luchador would actually be really fun to play as." So, my question is, how would I make a monk using mainly 3.5 core (but some other sourcebooks are fine as well) as to not be a burden on the party at later levels? Flavor is important, he wouldn't do things like hide or other dishonorable things. Preferably a core race, but not that important. My thoughts so far were to multiclass him in to a Cleric of Kord to get enlarge person and bull's strength as spells or to multi him in to a barbarian for uncanny dodge and rage. These would, of course, be taken before or after monk levels are taken. tl;dr - I'd like help making a monk that doesn't suck while flavoring it to be a luchador.

Hi /tg/, I'm currently writing a campaing and a scenario and I'm having troubles to find motivations for my NPCs. For exemple, I have this big ass admiral of the space fleet of Constantinople. He's not looking for revenge, money, honor or even political power. So why is he still fighting after so many years ? In a more general way, how do you find motivations for your PCs and NPCs ? (excuse my english, I'm just a poor frenchfag)

Custom character competition

Custom character competition 5 posts and 1 image replies omitted. Click to view.
My local gaming group decided to have a little competition. It is to create a Warhammer Fantasy/40k special character that is: A: Interesting B: Fairly Balanced C: Fun to play both with and against Which are also the conditions the characters will be judged on. My concept is something something akin to the old eltharion the blind rules crossed with the Jedi Lightsabre forms. Any help with creating and balancing such a character would be appreciated.

Real new GM here. story time: >I wanted to play D&D4 because i always wanted to try P&P games >I couldn't find any GM and I did not want to play with people I did not know >Some guy I know turn out to play Pathfinder >Not a GM but well, what can you do... >Bedin a campaign with friends of mine (they did not know each other, but all great guys) >Turns out many students in IT want to try P&P games >After a dozen of sessions, the GM turns out slowly to be horrible. >No preparation, fucking railroading everywhere >Scenario is uninteresting and he is obviously pumping everything out of a game he likes >Begin to want to do better. >Do some one shots with PF (god I hate those rules, messy and stuff) >Begin an Eclipse Phase campaign with some players from the other game >Gradually begin to stop the PF one. >Trying to be the very best. tl;dr :I really would like some advice on how to be a good DM (especially in EP)

I'm thinking of starting a Call of Cthulhu game, or maybe even Cthulhupunk with some friends, anything in particular I would need to know, or whats recommended? I've never DM'd a game before so it'd be completely new to me.

Having read the book of Metro 2033 I am wondering how you would make a campaign in this setting. There seems to be a lot of potential for an interesting game there.

Why is so hard to have "fun" in 3.5/PF, why crazy/funny ideas never work there?

Okay, so who plays this game? It has been almost a year now since the Olympus kickstarter, so people must have gotten *something* from their orders by now. And there must be somebody out there is Aegyptus stuff. How does it play? Is it fun?

Rags to Riches Quest! Episode 4 Part 7

Rags to Riches Quest! Episode... 129 posts and 2 image replies omitted. Click to view.
>Always back down There is heat now. Heat and dark. And wet. You strain to open your eyes. You see dark, with flecks of silver light all around. Stars, perhaps. You turn your head, at great personal pain, and see two shadows communing near an orange glow. This is all you can manage before the dark claims you again. You regain power. You open your eyes to see bright blue with white strokes that float across the field slowly, shifting and splitting. You try to move, but very little of your body checks in. Something wiggles under your head, lifting it up. It hurts to move. Something is pressed to your lips and then a cold sensation fills your mouth, forcing its way down your throat. You swallow, coughing slightly, and then are laid back down. The darkness comes again. Finally, you can hear truly. Your body is still weak, but your mind is aware and able to process the world to a decent degree. Voices in the distance speak nonchalantly about things you can't understand. You try to move, and your right arm responds, nearly lifting you onto your side before losing strength and collapsing. Noise, like shouting, and little patches of warmth pressing on you, forcing you back to resting position. This time you can fight the dark. You can just get out a few words with your parched throat, and hopefully you can understand the response. A) Water B) Food C) Pearl D) Riley E) Other

So I faced a guy in just kitchen table casual magic. He had a mikaeus the unhallowed out and then got out a glen elandra archmage so he can pay 1 blue to counter spells then have her come back with neither a + or - counter because she has both persist or undying and they cancel out. The way i understand how the triggers get stacked, he would need to give her one counter when she returns, then give her the other making them cancel out. If i can kill her instant speed after one of the counters is applied and before the other gets added ( assuming he has no mana to counter ) does she then stay dead based on the rules of either persist or undying based on which counter she got first, or does she come back having the other ones counter? how do you deal with this!
