ITT: Discuss dungeon mastering, vent about your players, and so on Should I show my players the stats of enemies they're fighting, and explicitly state their HP?

I want to make a game for my players where they have no idea they are secretly in a science fiction setting. This is the world, it is a ring (similar to Niven's Ring World or the Halo Arrays) It's 1,000 km wide, has an 11,686,724 km circumference. So it's big but not crazy big. The diameter is comparable to the planet Earth, so it is more in line with the Halo rings size-wise. So this is a thread to talk about fantasy becoming science fiction.

A solar storm has destroyed the world's power grid, chaos slowly builds on populated cities as the pumps working the water supply are out of commission and food becomes scarce due to no way to refrigerate it. Communications are down world wide, and the governments all arround the globe are stretched beyond capacity by any measure. What would you do?

So, I am about to start running a game using the Fate system, let's see what you guys think so far. It is using typical fantasy races and shit, but takes place in 1920's America. Orks running around with Al Capone's outfit and shit, right? Okay, magic has been deemed way too dangerous due to irresponsible wizards for well over 500 years, but every once in a while practicioners pop up or an old artifact is found. That's where the players come in. They round up the artifacts and bust the renegade mages. Sanctioned by the US government, you and your crew are magic-hunting agents in 3 piece suits, sporting tommy guns, and chips on your shoulders the size of dinner plates when it comes to wizards because of all the bullshit you have seen them put into the world. What you think, so far?

Are there any wargames about conventional (and not so conventional) forces taking on giant monsters a'la Godzilla and such? I know there's a few boardgames about it and stuff like Monsterpocalypse, but I was thinking more along the lines of a proper wargame as a fun way to repurpose some of my 6mm Moderns for some pick-up games at my local club. Also because I've been rewatching the Heisei Godzilla films and I've realised that I actually find the monster on monster fights pretty boring aside from the destruction of the surroundings.

What are the options available in Pathfinder for a bard who wants to fly? Preferably under his own power, I'm two levels short of getting a flying Phantom Steed and don't have access to any simple method to raise my caster level.

So, I want to run a classic low-level dungeon-crawl for some friends. Poking things with ten-foot poles, gelatinous cubes, skelingtons, all that jazz. I was planning on using a retroclone, but I'm not sure which to go for. What's a good retroclone to use? I've heard good things about Dungeon Crawl Classics. I've heard very good things about Lamentations of the Flame Princess. What does /tg/ reccomend? Also, if it's a game I can get the pdf of for free, that would be a bonus. pic unrelated

Need new ideas for a D&D campaign to run. I'm not very creative. I don't care if they're funny or serious. I'm desperate. I'll take anything.

Sup guys. I feel like a bit of an asshole. It goes like this: last year I started playing Call of Cthulhu as the Keeper, and the usual gaming group meets up every few months to continue the story we've built up in between sessions of Dark Heresy and turkeying anyone unfortunate to be caught in the crossfire (but that's another story). Anyway, in order to get the hang of CoC, I played some one-on-one sessions with my best friend. After a few clunky sessions with other friends that didn't go so well, we did The Haunting. He rolled up a character called Felix Spencer, a Scottish WW1 veteran who was now working in Boston as a private detective and trying to avoid hitting the bottle as best he could. I'll avoid retelling the story of The Haunting because it all went normally, but he eventually got to the burned-out headquarters of the church that old man Corbitt was frequenting. Felix found the old book of Eibon in the cellar and ended up taking it, passing every roll to convince the dude who hired him that he'd need six weeks to investigate, and proceeded to learn the Summon/Bind Shambler spell. He then went back to the house and summoned the Shambler, who proceeded to tear Corbitt a new asshole before sucking him into another dimension. Since then, Felix has had a couple of insane adventures and has a good habit of applying a healthy dose of Shambler to solve life's problems. He's accompanied by a skinny cop who knows judo, a British dude who burned down an island single-handedly, a drug-addicted secretary who built a flamethrower on a 5/100 craft roll, and two brothers who act as the point men when they aren't taking the piss out of everything.

I've seen a lot of bickering recently about 'unbeatable for martials' swarm of 15-20 CR 1/2 human thugs, especially for high level Fighters. Can a 20th level Paladin handle these criminal scum or are they also doomed to failure?

Hey guys. I'm not sure if this is the right place for this, but I was reading about how the new version of Dungeons And Dragons lets you play gay characters. That seems pretty cool and I always wanted to play it, so I searched for a group in my area and found one that meets in a comic shop. How are Dungeons and Dragons fans about gay guys generally? And is there anything I should know before going? I'm not in-your-face flamboyant but most people can tell I'm gay and I want to make sure I know what I'm getting into because I'll be going alone. Also, will I have to buy anything for my first time and if so, how much would that cost usually?

What does everyone think of the Space Hulk video game? I'm enjoying it so far but stuck on the second mission of the Sin of Damnation. Had both the best and worst luck... >Brother Scipio (SB+PF) kills 6 Genestealers on Overwatch with no jams >Brother Leon (Assault Cannon) mishaps on second shot after reload killing two squad members

Cage Match

88 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Nicolas Cage has invaded your campaign. Because of reasons, he has the abilities of every character he has ever acted. He is also actively hunting your party. Easymodo: He can only use the abilities of one character at a time, and there is a ten second delay before his abilities switch. Hard: He can use the abilities of any two characters at the same time, and the delay for switching has been shortened to five seconds. Insane: The full range of his characters' abilities are active. No switching, no delays, only dreams now. Dante Must Die: Insane, with the addition that he has attained super perfect loli form. Abandon all hope, all ye who enter here. How does your party fare, /tg/?

Is true suicide (no res) the last great thip every wizard takes after he tried out everything in all multiverses?
