> Be playing pathfinder > Make morally ambiguous sneaky character > Find out later that everyone in the group is lawful good and the DM has a strong preference towards good alignments. > Try to summon my stealth-eidolon sneakily. Roll a 30+ on stealth. A 24 on bluff to try and hide what he's doing as simple painting. Everyone still instantly knows exactly that he's summoned something and get suspicious. > Fine whatever. > Eidolon sneaks out back to try and loot the corpse or an ( evil ) npc that the goodies are trying to give an honorable burial, with his loot and all. > Its in a locked case. > Thats fine ill just pick the lock with my disable device bonus. > DM says I have nothing to pick the lock with because the theive's tools are on my summoner's character sheet and not my eidolons. ( Even though the summoner has 0 disable device and would never bother carrying theives tools. ) > Ok I'll just take the -2 and have the eidolon use one of his feather's more boney parts to improvise a lockpick. > I explain this 3 times. Everyone ignores it and assumes I am using nothing. The lockpick malus is multiplied by 5. Try twice, get high scores regardless, still fail. > Finally give up and unsummon my eidolon before Im caught. Thanks for listening /tg/. So, am I being that guy? This whole event struck me as kind of bullshitty, and I'm starting to think this isn't the best group. What do you guys think?

(Quest) Kouga: Saint of Mars 28: City of Light (IX)

(Quest) Kouga: Saint of Mars... 20 posts and 4 image replies omitted. Click to view.
A Saint Seiya Omega Quest! When evil threatens the world, the warriors of hope will always appear. Garbed in Cloths representing the constellations, they fight exploding the energy within them: their Cosmos. They are the warriors who protect the love and peace of the world… The Saints! Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Kouga:%20Saint%20of%20Mars Twitter: https://twitter.com/BelkanSniper Opening; Pegasus Fantasy!: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FqKCXeGW54Q >You better watch it! Today we run: >The City of Light (IX), Opening Stage= Fire! Your name is Kouga, the Saint of Black Pegasus who fights for justice under the name of the Goddess Athena (at least on paper) and also a witch, a magician who uses the power of darkness to bring catastrophe and curses to others. To some yours might be a paradoxical existence, but you believe that your cursed powers of darkness can be used to protect the world as a Saint and right now you in deep trouble, but at least this time it’s not your fault… probably. But you probably should go over how this mess started, you are in the city of light, Paris and your current mission is to recover a certain Grimoire from the Louvre Museum and then take it back to Medea so she can bribe you with your new wolf familiar (do it for him!), but things have just gotten more complicated. Reading the ley lines of the city, it appears that there is a massive accumulation of magical energy all over the place, enough that it could fuel almost any sort of spell… it would be enough to turn this city into a literal gate to hell. In other words, if someone uses that stupid stone tablet you were supposed to find, they could literally turn this stupid horrible city into a hell on earth filled with real demons.

My party will be going into a room in a kobold rebel base a room and I plan on them getting sniped by Id Rifles, Rocket Launchers, and Death Rays when they enter. Should I tell the party to roll perception for the snipers or should they decide to roll perception on their own or should they just get auto-hit?

r u ready for teh shit storm? DnD with a Leprecunt! (read: leprechaun) Six spots, get 'em while they're hot. You can talk with anyone in your own vicinity. When you want to speak with a NPC directly, link to the post where OP Roleplayed as the NPC you are talking with. To talk with players that are not close to you, a trained Raven is required. When you are doing an action follow this: OP tells you in his update that you are under attack by a bear that came rushing out the forest at you. You post some light RP to explain your characters line of thoughts/reasons why you are doing what you are about to do and/or quick preparation before you post your action in this format separately from the RP: [Players Name] > Evade Based on how high or low the number you got in your post number, you either successfully evaded the bears charge or you got tumbled by the bear. Things like being less equipped or having armor equipped at the time will either increase or decrease the chance of evading. It is up to OP to inform players AFTER they have rolled for an action if their chances were increased or decreased based on their skills or equipments, as to not give the players a choice and to explain why they failed/succeeded. Anything is possible as long as your character can do it.
Sup /tg/ Recently I've... 7 posts and 1 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Sup /tg/ Recently I've been thinking about dice systems, and I had an idea I'd like you to consider. Now I really like the probabilities of 2 d6 dice. They feel very natural and normal, however I'm not really a fan of dungeon world. Instead I was thinking what about a game where every 7 you roll in total on your d6 dice is counted as a success? Or should the dice be more like a DC roll for a dnd game where the number is determined based on the challenge? For instance rolling a 7 or higher is a normal human feat but a higher DC like 10 or 12 would be extremely hard challenges? And also character progression includes adding bonus DICE to rolls, not just a +1 or +2, so your dice keep adding up. Perhaps even include multiple 7's for multiple successes then?

I need ways to fuck with a cunty nobility elf Sorcerer in Pathfinder, since my character utterly hates his guts. I'm an investigator so I can make different alchemical stuff, and so far I've thought of putting itching powder in his clothes while he sleeps, or constantly slip insomnia powder into his food. Any other ideas, /tg/?

Paladin of Joy Quest 22

You are Sireyi Valyenya, 20 years old, you have been made into a Baroness, and given lands on the border of the kingdom. You’re busy solving the problems only a ruler can solve. Character Sheet http://pastebin.com/tsAx3JGT Party http://pastebin.com/DMfRaXQV Your Realm: http://pastebin.com/jYjB9BBQ Rules http://pastebin.com/yKvP3AiP The World http://pastebin.com/3H9fnizc Archive http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/33059651/ http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=paladin+of+joy QM Twitter https://twitter.com/anAspiringQM QM Askfm http://ask.fm/AnAspiringQM You’re at the settlement of the werespiders in Clithenwald forest, talking to their ruler, or at least their eldest member. Suspended from the ceiling is a vast mass of webbing, holding a huge spider that fills the entire structure. It also has a (normal-sized) humanoid torso – though that has a mixture of human and spider features as well. The spider is upside down, with the torso towards the bottom, her head just a few feet higher than yours. She just threatened to roast you to feed her children. Isla makes a quiet “Eep!” and steps behind you. Matthias just rolls his shoulders a little, loosening up, Shahulzer grins. Grandmother Weaver, as she is known, laughs, a rough noise devoid of actual humour. “Just my little joke” she says “But I have to wonder, why an outsider smelling of the fae court just walks in here, fallen for a little glamour have we?” She sniffs at you “Huh, it’s worn off, and still you came.” “She wants to make peace with the fae” pipes up Twoblue “Wouldn’t that be wonderful Grandmother?” “Quiet spiderling” says Grandmother Weaver absently “You’ve already said too much, I’ll decide your punishment shortly, now go.” Twoblue leaves, her head hanging slightly. “Now” she says, “Why did you come here?” “I really do what to make peace between you and the fae” you say.

Post Apocalyptic Builder Thing: The Quest for Things Thingy

Post Apocalyptic Builder... 30 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Post Apocalyptic Builder Thing: The Quest for Things Thingy One-shot? Two-shot? I'm not actually sure. Thingies happened, and now everyone is ded. Everyone? Not quite. Out of the ashes, something creeps out. The remains of humanity, scattered across the winds, have woken up again. Tiny jabs at reclaiming former glory, or pushing forward to greater things, start to be made. You are on some sort of isolated area, the Plains of Cherry Berry, where most plants dare not grow, water is scarce, and horrid beasts lurk behind every corner. Mutants are starting to be a thing. What do? Fill this out to make a person or city or group or thing: >Name: what we call you or your nation >Colour and Location: How we'll show you on the map >Fluff: what you do >Other: Tools, skills, bonuses, etc. Each turn, roll 4d100, and state 4 actions. It takes a roll of 60 or higher to succeed. Actions put higher up will have higher priority, and be completed before the others. Actions that a player labels "1-2" or such will need that many rolls to be completed successfully, no matter what they are. Any complaints or suggestions are more than welcome. The old world is lost; build this one as you see fit.

Food for thought: we roll our D20s, our 3d6, or 4dF, our d%, or dice pools, etc but how important is it that a game system only uses one of them? Can using more than one to handle different things present new opportunities in game design and play experience? For that matter, can a system have an objective resolution system (roll DC 20 to Jump 15ft) and a separate, subjective resolution system (6 or less you fail, 7-9 you partially succeed, 10+ you succeed) and work?
