Is FATAL any good?
Is FATAL any good? Anonymous 08/25/14(Mon)19:57 UTC+1 No.34392696 Report

So, I've been getting into D&D table top games recently with a few buddies of mine, and I offered to be the DM for the next game they play.

I told them they could pick the system and rulebook, and they told me I should run a FATAL campaign and that it's great for a new DM.

Is it any good? I wasn't gonna find a download for it or set up a game until I could get some more info on it.

If you're actually serious, no, you shouldn't even bother downloading it. Just search for FATAL and rpg.net in google and read the review if you want to know about it.

Do you enjoy rolling for anal circumference?

Do you enjoy a system where anal circumference is actually important?

not as good as Realms of Atlantasia, you should run a game in that setting.

This, /tg/ is so quick to dismiss and hate on FATAL, but I bet none of you have actually tried to play it. It's a very underrated system, put down by faggots who are scared of a little dick.

Jesus christ, seriously?

Goddamn.

Part of me wants to do a campaign for the shits and giggles of "what the fuck is this shit" and the other part of me wants to forget the word fatal exists.

Thanks for letting me know, I was about to download the PDF for it.

Rolling for a nympho male baby accustomed to anal sex.
That's 1d100-90+5+30+20 (let's say the baby's got moves) or 1d100-35.

Even setting aside the disgusting subject matter, FATAL's actual system is a goddamned train wreck. Waste your time if you want, but there's no fun to be found there.

Google FATAL Fecht where /tg tried to fight using the actual goddamned rules. It was hilariously stupid like witch defeats kobold sorcerer by miscasting a spell that results in 10 mile-wide fiery explosion stupid.

This is the problem with modern "gamers"

You're all fucking pussies. Oh no, my precious character died of a mortal wound.

Suck it up, reroll and get back in the game. Bring two characters for safety.

Seems to me that being a mage in FATAL seems to be a bit of a chore, what with having to secure a steady supply of retards and rape victims,

"Each time you roll on the Random Magical Effects chart, you have a 1-in-2000 chance of accidentally casting Fatal and killing all life on the planet. "

How everyone is alive? since you need to be 100¨right while casting spell to not go to magical effects chart

Now don't get me wrong, I don't mind dying at all. However, it is a bit weird when a spear somehow skewers my liver without actually harming anything else.

Also please don't use the term "fucking pussies" when we're talking about FATAL. You know how it ends.

I play games that kill you all the time, but it also doesn't take hours to create the characters and it's not full of max-edgy bullshit.

Not that difficult once you get the factory going. Rape victims are easy to create, you just have to rape them, and once everyone in your rape factory is related, retards are plenty as well.
