Title: Table Top, as in RPG
Post by: Moondancer on January 30, 2008, 10:52:20 AM
I was looking through the first 3 or so pages of the various threads in this section, and I was shocked to find out no one was talking about running/playing a good old fashion Pen and Paper RPG. Even LARP wouldn't be to bad. Last year some of the roomies I was with tried, but seeing as we had to make characters before playing...It just didn't pan out.

So yeah, anyone interested?
Maybe get characters done up and submitted before hand?

I know I'd be most interested in nearly any of the World of Darkness games (New or Old) and Scion.

Just a thought.

LARP or even tabletop would be fun. I haven't gotten to do anything since October.

At one of the con that I help run in Oklahoma. I am the story teller for vampire LARP. We go WoD old school.

I'd be down for table-top, so long as the system is good. As for LARP, I only do Amtgard.

Post by: Moondancer on February 05, 2008, 07:24:11 PM
And Amtgard isn't larp really, though it's fun in its own rights.

I'll have to see what my roomies think. Might be able to get a game going. Just not sure which would be best right now. Like I said I'm partial to OWoD, Scion and could do NWoD if need be. D&D might be okay.

Who wants to ST? *Snickers*

I've never been the ST for a large game before, so I bow out of that one.  On the other hand, I am an experienced gamer (D&D, Shadowrun, SLA Industries, all the White Wolf systems, Serenity, GURPS), and would be happy to join a campaign.  If you're looking for something with just battle (i.e. Amtgard), the Twilight Knights Renaissance Guild is currently negotiating to hold all-night battles from midnight-6 am every night, with boffers.  Makes the insurance people less twitchy than other weapons.  We'll also be holding katana and knife-fighting workshops.  Anyways, I'd love to be in a RP campaign.

I have been running a few games here for my friends.. I guess, if need be, I might be able to put something together. It would be OWoD. Though, if someone else would volunteer it would be better because I kinda want to not have to run anything for once when I go to a con.

In theory it's a LARP, although you'll get made fun of for doing it by other Amtgarders.

 *chuckles*I've always heard Amtgard was much like our local game, where you basically just battle it out with padded weapons to either a last man standing, to CtF style stuff. Then again I heard it's like D&D, but you don't really talk much in D&D. Just "Loot, wench, and arrrrgh!" Well Talu-chan, I love OWoD personally. Let me talk to my roomies (Cause their bums and been to busy to talk to me online) and maybe we can see if anyone else wants to run something, or if people don't mind someone who's rusty, I could try to run something OWoD. Though you go ahead and feel free to start thinking something up *ChuckleS* Just in case. So lets get a show of hands who's still interested, and is OWoD good for everyone? If we get enough, maybe we can get co-ST's going.

Actually, im a pretty good DM so if nobody wants to, i could run one?

I would probabaly run a DnD 3.5 setting and run "expedition to Ravenloft" (undead, fuck yeah) or something.

Or w/e, im very down to get my rp on at fanime.

1 more thing, haha.

if we decide on some games (because lets face it, theres not going to be a lot of gamers) I SUPER support rifts or gurps.
Only systems with rules on how to mount a Machine-Gun to a flying Carpet.

YEAH

So we have a few people interested in running stuff, so....I figure either the folks interested in running things can explain a little abit about the setting and a hint of the story line they'd run, and we can all vote, or figure out some other official way to see who shall Run things, and who shall play. Also what night would be best for folks?

Post by: the_Pink_Panther24 on March 07, 2008, 10:20:01 AM
the Campaign setting i was going to run (Expedition to Castle Ravenloft) Its a story more or less tied into Bram Stoker's "Dracula" (in terms of setting, but not plot).

The party of heroes enters Barovia, a Land choked with the essence of undeath and fear. The vast forests that wall the country are veiled by a foul mist, and whispers and laughing can are heard form the fog on a regular basis. Upon investigating this land, the heroes discover a foul plot to murder all of Barovia's citizens and unleash them as an undead horde.
Barovia's castle Ravenloft has been empty for years, for the count of this house died many moons ago.
But a light has recently been seen in the tallest of the castle's tower, and a chilled wind blows from the cliffs and crags from which the looming citadel sits. There, Count Von Strahd awaits.

I'd probably run a QUICK 1-time session, start you all at level 10 and then skip all the sections about exploring the country, forests, ruins, churches, graveyards, crypts, dungeons, catacombs, bandit camps, ghoul raiding bases, or survival-horror like encounters with a villages overrun with zombies (though this  is hilariously fun, imo) Players would start at the drawbridge of the castle, and we'd pretty much "Castlevania" it up until you get to the boss, haha.

like a WoW instance or something.

Of course Im NOT going to be DM. But if anyone wants to run it, as it does fit well with Fanime, then that would be cool.

If we wanted to run anime themed games, thats possible too with BESM! (which stands for Big eyes, small mouth)
here's it's wiki entry:

"Big Eyes, Small Mouth is a roleplaying game that was designed to simulate the action of anime and manga. It is frequently referred to by the acronym BESM. The title alludes to the common anime drawing style of characters with huge, expressive eyes.
BESM uses a point-based character creation system. Characters are evaluated based on three "Stats", against which all action checks are made. These are supplemented by Attributes, which give the characters unique abilities."

When we played, I was a bishounen military operative who owned and operated a mobile suit and attended a private high school to which a plot to secretly one by one snatch each student and replace them with clones was unfolding.  needless to say, various anime-inspired themes are written into the game XD

classes include like: Mecha pilot, magical girl, poke'mon trainer (really), horrific daemon (my personal favorite) and MANY more.

Essentially, You pick more of a genre rather than a class, and genres include: Cyberpunk, cars and guns, Martial arts, Medieval fantasy, modern military, occult horror, space opera, or teenage romance. from here, You can emulate any type of occupation for your character you want.

tis pretty cool.

I posted in a Swap Meet thread that I'll be selling a bunch of table-top RPG games on Thursday and Friday night, so if anyone's interested (if you're looking for these old-school games to use for the con), come find my section.  Here's what I have:

D&D books

-Various DragonLance Modules/Adventures

I also have some starter books for some variation-games:

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles & Other Strangeness (also have some supplement books)
Heroes Unlimited
Mekton (Japanese Robot Combat)

And, I have some box-sets that are pretty complete and ready to go:

Car Wars : Deluxe Edition  (also have some supplement books)
Battletech  (also have extra books)

have you looked at the Bankai abilities yet?
Sure ToB might be able to keep up with them, if they are heavily Optimized
Of course a druid could easly keep up, along with a Wizard, a Archivist, an Ur-Priest, any good Spellcaster.

Anyways the classes are built to be powerful.

Yeah I change my avi whenever the mood fits me, which is often.

I'll Probably be a Enlightened Fist (1 Monk,6 Sor or 5 Wiz, EF-->)

BTW, I reconsider.

Im going to be a SwordSage with the arcane casting variant (a.k.a., The SpellSage) and unarmed variant(a.k.a., The FistSage)
creating The FistMage (a.k.a., Im a better monk than you  ;) )

Alright so lets all the details in order:
When: Whenever as long it doesn't interfere with anybodies plans.
Where: The tabletop area.
What: (probably) Playing some Mutha F**kin' D&D (7th-9th level)though we may play something else or even some LARP  :o
Why: cuz' its fun
How: by rollin' dice and rollplaying
Who: Talu-chan:(evil)DM. Partywise (codename: Teh knights of Fanime):TC_X0_Lt_0X: (badass) "monk". Havok rt: priest(healer) or Crusader (Tank) so far...
So that just about covers it? So I think we need more people.

You really should be a Crusader rather than a knight, there much more powerful for both Defense and Offense.

as for a blaster, OK.

BTW if you want to be a said defender, take a level dip into Devoted Defender(in Sword and Fist).

Crusaders may be more powerful than Knights, but I like Knights better for both simplicity of role-playing, and they're easier to roll-play, if you know what I mean.  I don't have to worry about maneuvers, cards, stuff like that.  I can simply be a very annoying guy to mess with.

Personally I see a Crusader and a knight one in the same, Role playing wise (if your not a religious Crusader of course).

But Combat wise, yeah, Knights are far more simplistic, and aren't nearly as annoying to use in combat as Crusaders.

I've always liked the knights challenge anyways =3

I'd be up for this. I'm not really all that up on D&D (I played 3e a decent amount when it first came out, but haven't touched 3.5), but still, sounds like fun. Pretty much any time that doesn't conflict with the masquerade and such would be fine.

Also, I'm kind of working on translating what will be the first ever Japanese TRPG put out in English, Maid RPG (http://yarukizero.wordpress.com/2008/04/16/maid-rpg-is-coming/). It's not going to be totally ready until GenCon, but I already have enough done that I could bring a printout of the rules and run a session or two at Fanime if enough people are interested. It's a lot of fun, and not quite like anything you've ever seen.

If you're looking for some good D&D 3.5 ed help, you can go to www.dndonlinegames.com.  They're both a play-by-post site, yet they also have the SRDs for the core races and classes, plus some of the supplements.  If you have trouble navigating the site, I'm ManWithDoor both there and here.  Yeah, I know, same nickname, but I earned mine swordfighting in real life.  Was wielding a sword and a shield at a Renaissance Faire, was kicking butt in the tourney actually, and someone in the crowd starting chanting, "Man With Door!  Man With Door!"  And it sorta stuck.

I worked at the "Good Shepherd's Games".

Title: Re: Table Top, as in RPG
Post by: ManWithDoor on May 01, 2008, 02:40:46 PM
Way cool.  What sort of games did you do?  I was with the "Twilight Knights Renaissance Guild".  Usually on the Sundays, occasionally Saturdays, we run a swordfighting tournament in the Food Court area.  Quite a lot of fun, especially since the Faire gives out actual cash prizes for the 1st-3rd place winners.  I think I got 100 bucks my first year when I placed 2nd.  I was so proud.  The guy was way over six feet tall, outweighed me by a hundred pounds, and used two swords, the dual-wielding ... evil word person him.  *grin*

Actually the guy I lost to is a great guy.  He was an old student of my swordfighting instructor.  Both of us were really out of practice (he got married and moved away, I was on a Mormon mission for 2 years), but we both whooped the competition.  Speaks well of my director, I suppose.  I'm really looking forward to the workshops we'll be teaching at Fanime this year.

Anyways, that's way more information than needed to be said.  Wasn't this supposed to be a RPG get-together forum?

I would be interested in some Shadowrun if anyone could start it up, or maybe some D&D. I haven't played in about 3 years so I just need to know what's going to be going down so I can run some refresher games before the con.
Title: Re: Table Top, as in RPG
Post by: TC X0 Lt 0X on May 02, 2008, 12:21:00 PM

Why don't we all sign up for dndonlinegames.com, and start the Fanime game there!

Title: Re: Table Top, as in RPG
Post by: ManWithDoor on May 04, 2008, 10:53:51 PM
Sounds like a great idea to me.  If nothing else, we would have the characters and backstories done by the time the Con rolls around, which would save us a lot of setup time.  Most of my spur of the moment RPG sessions with friends had half the play time taken up by creating our characters, and I'm sure none of us want that.  I have workshops to teach and panels to talk at (not to mention the ones I actually want to attend that others are putting on), so I at least don't have time to spend all day creating a character and never getting around to playing.  Let's get it on!

So, who's DM-ing this adventure?  Would everyone else like to set up dndonlinegames accounts also?  They've got character sheet generators that I've found quite useful.

OK, I sent out the PMs.

Some of them may say 12 weeks, but that is an error.

According to past posts, we've decided to use D&D3.5, and the starting level will be 7-9.

Does anyone else want to add there imput?

Title: Re: Table Top, as in RPG
Post by: neko ewen on May 10, 2008, 04:19:30 PM
Sounds good to me. I can borrow a friends' 3.5 books long enough to make a character at least. I'd prefer to play something simple (i.e., without much in the way of spells).

Saturday isn't that great for me since I really want to attend the premiere of Studio Sokodei's new movie (which I helped with!) and the masquerade (whenever that is...).

Also, would anyone be up for giving Maid RPG a try?
Title: Re: Table Top, as in RPG
Post by: ManWithDoor on May 10, 2008, 04:35:24 PM
While the Maid RPG would be fun, finding time would be ... interesting.  As long as it's in the later part of the evenings, I'm free.  The only other events beyond my workshops would be the Black & White Ball.  Any idea when that actually is?

OK, I vote for keeping this a simple one-night adventure, Level 8, and no races stranger than +1 level adjustment.  Some nice and straight-forward mission.
Title: Re: Table Top, as in RPG

I could still most likely run something but it looks like my flight will not be getting there until sometime on Friday and then I leave Monday. I know that I am going to the black and white ball and the bleach gathering and the gaia gathering. So it looks like Sunday night would be the best for me.

If I am going to be able to do this it is going to have to be on Sunday, because I know I am going to be pulled to so many different places because I haven't ever been to California. And y'all have to promise me that you will not make fun of the way I talk.

No worries, out here in cali we hear it all. ^^ I'm amused when I talk to folks in the south who say I have 'one of d'em strange californ'ian accent things.' which far as I can tell, is a lack of an accent. Right then, what night are we thinking about for this then? We should start working on characters if the DM would be so kind as to give us how many levels we have to play around with and the like. Also we should get a updated head count of how many folks we'll be having. Oh and MikoChika, new commers to RP is always a good thing. ^^

Title: Re: Table Top, as in RPG
Post by: Moondancer on May 13, 2008, 10:41:53 PM
As I recall, that means you start with the usual 10 in everything, and take the 32 points to divide into the abilities as you like, right? It's been a LONG time since I played any D20 style games. If so, then I agree. Rolling out is risky, and unless the DM is there watching, the temptation could be to much to not tack on a few points. *Chuckles* Cause, hey we all like to have interesting characters I'm sure.
Title: Re: Table Top, as in RPG
Post by: ManWithDoor on May 14, 2008, 10:17:06 AM
Close, but not quite.  The point buy system starts every attribute at 8 pts.
Up to 14 points, every increase of 1 costs 1 point.
15 and 16 each cost 2 points.
17 and 18 each cost 3 points.

So to increase from 8 to 14 costs 6 points.
8 to 16 costs 10 points.
8 to 18 costs 16 points.

Would the DM like us to PM her our sheets before hand? Granted I've had no time to make mine just yet. Trying to get the house cleaned up before I leave and all *Chuckles* Guess I'll do up a level 8, and up it to 9 or where ever. Since it's a one shot, I think the characters should be level 10 *L* Just cause its so rare for me to get a DnD character above level 8. Most DnD games I've been apart of die after that for some reason. Fanime is so soooooon, but still so far away....Gnar!

I wouldn't mind 10 ether

It would give the spell casters 4th level spells

Your my kind of guy *laughs so wheres our lovely DM? *pokes around* Don't make me be scary *laughs* So we're planning on playing sunday night? Suppose one of us could post a little 'save this table for forum DnD or something in the game room or something.

So what games exactly are people going to run? If it's Serenity/FireFly, BESM, or Bleach D20 I'd be down with that. I'd also be cool with Shadowrun.
I wonder, do you speak of Draxredd's Bleach D20 system?
Anyways so far I believe were running a D&D3.5 Campaign,which were discussing here.
I know that there is a Shadowrun and Maid RPG are being ran by some people (though they haven't really said much).
Well if you hear anything more from the people running Shadowrun or Maid RPG, I'd be open to playing either one. I have experience playing Shadowrun, but I would love to learn Maid RPG.

Alright Let's get everything in order before the con let get all the the details in order and agreed on:
1.When are we doing this? (Day and Time)
2. Where should we meet up?
3.what and how are we playing?
alright: so here's my suggestions:
1. We start up around 11pm on which ever night is best for the most people (I really don't care which night.)
2. We should just meet up in the the game hall tables (we should decided on a person or item to rally to).
3. I assume we're playing DnD 3.5 8th level characters using the 32 point system and if we need to tweak are characters we'll do it. That is assuming Talu-chan is still going to DM or that somebody else will step up if not well then we'll see what we can do(I'll still be sharing my 3.5 "books" with whoever wants'em, so bring a USB drive)...as for all other RPGs we'll see what'll happen.

Sounds good?
objections?
suggestions?
I'd love to hear them.
and if you're really serious about this pm me and we can swap phone number; so we can better coordinate the game at the con.

Alright guys, here's my first iteration of my character, an 8th level Knight.  I'd be happy for 9th (extra feat) or whatever.  I used the character profile from DndOnlineGames, applied public permission, and posted the link here.  Nice and easy.

I think we should go to 10th level.

Its about the time when spellcasters stop sucking and melee start sucking, so there will be balance.

1.When are we doing this?  I do believe it was sunday night that foilks seemed to like, and 11pm sounds fine to me.
2. Where should we meet up? Game room of course, suppose I could get there early so folks just look for the big guy, with long hair, more then likely playing chess on a laptop *L*
3.what and how are we playing? DnD 3.5 But if folks wanna play another game some other time, I could see about running something World of Darkness related. That or we could goof around and do a tournament style fight thing with our DnD characters for fun.

Alright Sunday 11pm Gameroom look for some folks with laptops long hair(Moondancer) or wearing a black fedora(that be me) or just yell Who's playing DnD!?!?!.  Unless anyone has an objection that the game plan. As for character levels lets keep'em at 8 since that what was the original level we were planning to play at and tweak to ten if we need to.

And here's my character:

Whats the Starting Gold going to be?
It would be useful to know.

Havok, can you bring ToB:Bo9S on your laptop for me? It would be useful to have around so I dont have to copy down all the maneuvers and stance my character will have.
Title: Re: Table Top, as in RPG
Post by: ManWithDoor on May 20, 2008, 09:05:32 PM
Standard Gold for 8th level characters is 27,000 gp!

Of Course, I'll be bringing all 2.25GB of my DnD books to share to anyone who wants'em so be there sunday (I'll be dressed up for the b&w ball) or find me friday(brown cowboy hat hellsing shirt under a blue Dickes workshirt) wouldn't have it on me saturday. and like ManwithDoor said is our starting gold is 27k so you'll notice my cleric wearing some nice +1 Adamantine Full plate :P 3/- dam reduction for the win!

Edit: does any body need dice? I got an extra set. I'll bring it anyways.
Title: Re: Table Top, as in RPG
Post by: ManWithDoor on May 21, 2008, 08:43:57 AM
It's always good to know that someone's got adamatine in the group.  Can always tear it off you and bash the enemy over the head with it, eh wot?  *laugh*  Yes, please bring the extra dice.  I always seem to be losing my set, can never find it lately.

I'll most likely still be wearing my B&W ball tuxedo, or I'll have changed back to my fencing costume.  If anyone wants to chat before game, I'll be with the Twilight Knights teaching swordfighting workshops, and holding panels on the same topic.  I'll be there Friday noon until closing ceremonies.  White guy, 5'5", glasses, black kung fu pants, black t-shirt, a beret, hard to miss.  I answer to Josh, JP, Tobias, Squire, Man With Door, and all sorts of names.

Post by: havok rt on May 22, 2008, 12:21:41 AM
Last minute remind to everybody. Bring Dice!(some extra if you can)and I don't want this game to only have one set(I'll try to bring two sets). Also somebody please bring a (actual) copy of three core books(PH, MM, and DMG). Because if my laptop runs outta juice and there's no plug'in near by, then I wouldn't have'm(or be able to share them for that matter.) Sorry if I seem demanding, :-[ its just I'm really excited about this now that I finished my PC and I want everything to go smoothly.

HI, yeah, so sorry. Life is really getting in my way of having fun. I got a promotion and have only been away from work in order to sleep and run this LARP thing. I got ropped into running a weekend LARP for people here in OK so I am still trying to put my head on straight.

I do have a plan. The game is going to be alsomst completely random. So, if you guys still want me, I will need a monster manual.

And I have a twang. It gets bad late at night or when I am mad really excited.

Hi everyone!  I'm ManWithDoor's friend and am also a member of the Twilight Knights, and I'll probably be joining this DnD game.  I've got a few character concepts, but I need the final confirmation on what level we'll be at.  It appears we'll do 32 pt buy and have standard wealth by level, but I don't know if we're doing level 8, 9 or 10.  I'll either go with a Beguiler or a Warblade.

I respond to Tom, and may respond to Tomberry.  I just received that nickname recently.

Talu-Chan is DMing, and as for people, I think 4 to 7 including you.

Don't worry if the people are itching for more I'll step in as DM. As long as I can play PC for awhile I'm happy.

Wow it was great to see the tabletop games be so popular this year! Last year I saw the tables be open a lot, but this year....this year it was a definite success ^_^

Next year I'd love to participate in a Bleach RP, or a BESM game. Something more anime themed ^_^
Title: Re: Table Top, as in RPG
Post by: TC X0 Lt 0X on May 31, 2008, 08:20:50 PM
Ah yes, that reminds me...

Where was the game?

If you guys got the game running, I'm sorry but I couldn't find it. I asked around the Game room at 11:00 on Sunday (the time I believe we were supposed to meet up) but from what I was told, no one there had any idea about it.

Post by: mDuo13 on June 02, 2008, 10:21:21 AM
One thing Tabletop Gaming should've done better at the con this year is have more tables and chairs! Especially when there were card game tournaments going on, huge sections of the Tabletop area were reserved, and there were no free spots to play random pickup games! That was pretty frustrating.

Actually, differentiating between the "reserved for tournaments" area and the "pickup play" area would be a big improvement for next year. Then you could put a sign up next to the tourney tables, with a timetable of all the tournaments so you could look and see if those tables are free for pickup play (i.e. late at night).
