Sup /tg/. So, I've been doing a gurps 4th campaign for a while now. Let me give you a little background. It's basically my first campaign and was meant to be semi-serious, but a few of the players made pretty fanciful characters from the start that didn't really fit the campaign. I said fuck it and allowed it for funsies. I also allowed some pretty OP shit for most of them that in hindsight was a complete mistake, because I can't seem to make any challenging scenarios for them. Traps don't work because they can evade whatever the hell I throw at them, combat always ends up with them absolutely destroying whatever I set them against without them receiving so much as a scratch, and non-combat situations are pretty much non-existent since they solve all their problems with violence. Don't get me wrong, we have a fairly fun time playing, but they bitch when I don't give them op shit, they bitch because it's too easy, and they'd bitch if I take away their shit. So, any tips for making combat and other situations for dealing with super powered assholes? I just want them to be challenged and maybe fear death for once without having to be a complete dick to accomplish that.

Character sheet: http://pastebin.com/rZQ8vVBd Previous threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=crusader+quest Part 5 It is the Year of Our Lord, 1134. You are Wilhelm of Koblenz, crusading knight in the Holy Land. After defeating a band of criminals and delivering their leader in chains to the Lord of Sidon, you have taken the rest of your time to rest and recuperate. With your band of companions ever growing you retired to a Saracen rest house to meet with friends, where you practiced your musicianship to the enjoyment of the crowd. A night of passion with a slave girl took a wrong turn in the morning however, and has resulted in the death of the master of the house and one of his guests. Your companions gather in the hallway over the bloody affair. Your sword is still lodged in the master of the house's chest, while Sabeen's sword drips with the life blood of the knife wielding guest. "Sir, what have you done?" Franz asked, "What will we do?" You draw your sword from the corpse and clean it on the hem of the corpse's shirt. Chihirizahd, clothed in only in bed sheets wrapped about her shapely frame, holds out for you your scabbard. > we must flee > this was not murder, the authorities will see that > write in

When someone is corrupted by dark magic, is the dark magic (or the forces behind it) actually sentient? Subtly influencing the user to do things that will benefit a darker force in the long run? Or is it truly chaotic in nature, simply corrupting the body and soul simply because that's what it does, like how drinking bleach just kills you, the bleach isn't intending on anything?

UA Story Thread

UA Story Thread 16 posts and 2 image replies omitted. Click to view.
So I've been reading through the Unknown Armies rulebook lately. Love the setting. Love the rumors. Love the rules. Love the published adventures. I'd really like to give it a try with my group but I'm having trouble coming up with anything fitting for the metaphysical weirdness and human horror of the Occult Underground. I guess my question is where do you get inspiration for UA campaigns? Anybody have any good stories from past games? Any movies or books that really capture the feel of the game?

Okay, I'm working on a game about modern vampires, so let's talk about vampires and vampire lore/myths. On the subject of my game, what would you call a group of vampires (besides a "bloodline" - too associated with VtM/VtR)? Also, what do you guys think of the term "Sanguifex" for the creator of a specific group of vampires?

I've been GMing for a few years and I've got some people interested in running a LARP as opposed to our usual Beer and pretzels around a card table shenanigans. We put a "theme" to a vote and settled on film noir. Wev'e always loved backstabbing and RPing more than outright combat and I'm pretty good at splicing in intrigue at a moments notice if I do say so myself. So it could work. Can anyone recommend a good system to adapt? Any advice for larping in general?

Have any of you either been in or ran a Mistborn Setting? How did things work? I'm interested in eventually participating in one and I kinda just want to hear as much as I can. Post any stories or whatever please.

The "I was transported to a fantasy world!" theme is fairly common in Light Novels and games. If you were taken to a really old school fantasy rpg (like final fantasy 1 or FFT), what would you take with you? remember that while guns are likely to give you an early advantage, you will probably run out of ammo soon

How broken is the Generation background in VtM? To how many dots should I restrict it? I gotta feeling that if I leave it unrestricted, everybody will make 8th generation assamite.

My friends of /tg/, again i am here, bringing you gifts from the land of /po/. This time it's a little update on Upsilonman's useable warhammer 40k chibi miniatures. He finally released Space communists, while based god-maker Jimbowen made a tiny little rhino to go with spessemerens. FAQ/Tl;dr >What the fuck is this Printable warhammer 40k miniatures. >Why would i need this Useful to get poor people into the game, or to test builds before buying the actual minis. >What paper should i use? Standard office paper for infantry minis, i suggest using light cardstock for the Rhino. >Tips and tricks? Use thick cardboard for the bases, you won't send your army flying when you sneeze.

hey /tg/. i've been meaning to get into stuff like D&D for a while now, and so are my friends. so being the only one with any sort of experience in it (by which i mean playing it years ago when i was a kid) i offered to GM. we tried it once, spent ages making characters but got it done, and when it's time for battle i awkwardly realize i have no idea what i'm doing. i'm planing to try again with a much smaller group, so my question is this, are there any D&D games on the internet i can watch and maybe learn from? just reading the subject from the book doesn't really get through to me. pic unrelated.
