Also, Dwarf Battle-Cleric reporting in.



Use a virtual tabletop like Roll20 or Maptools.

Knew about Maptools, didn't know about Roll20. Looks interesting, how easy is it to use?

I can sum it up in about 5 steps

1. Sign Up

2. Get your group to sign up

3. Create Campaign

4. Invite your group

5. Click play

No need to forward your ports or set up a Hamachi server. It's all in your browser. It also has a nifty 3d dice roller for a bit of added authenticity.

I'm going to be playing Pathfinder on a fairly popular stream this Saturday! If you have an interest in tabletops and want to see how one is played or have some fun watching our antics go to http://www.twitch.tv/lordkat or live.lordkat.com

Or if you want in, sign up for the forums and find the Pathfinder Pirates thread under the "Games" section.

Anyone know a good place to get figurines beside Reaper? I'd like to paint a little to relax after class but I can't find a suitable fig.

Browse here:

www.elementgames.co.uk

and here:

www.waylandgames.co.uk

Lots of different ranges, and usually a 10-20% on prices.

There are loads of other specialist suppliers (gribbly miniatures, ultraforge), but they tend to be a little pricey.

EDIT:

Shite, you're US. I don't really know what to suggest - Malifaux?

Yea. I just want a guy with a rapier who isn't a musketeer or a pirate.

So the other day I downloaded the PDFs of a few up-to-date 40K rulebooks. I haven't played since the game was still in 3rd edition, which was something like 15 years ago.

WHAT THE CHRIST HAVE THEY DONE. HONESTLY WHAT IS THIS.

DEEP STRIKING LAND RAIDERS? SERIOUSLY?

AND WHY THE HELL DO THE NECRONS HAVE CHARACTERS?! WHAT HAPPENED TO THE C'TAN?!

WHAT.

THE.

FUUUUCK.

Luckily my friend still has an old 3rd ed. rulebook and we have a couple armies between us, screw you Games Workshop. You don't tell me how to play.

I started watching the Tabletop video series the other day (with Will Wheaton)

Hot damn I didn't think so many cool tabletop games existed O_o


The only RPG ones I liked the most though was Fiasco. I'm not that much into dwarves and shit (DnD and countless of other RPG stuff), but other "real-life scenario" RPG's are great too.

There at times where you make it better by making it simple. No need to create 1000000 races and 23498727398 worlds and 11213 planes of existance with 1213 types of weapons/magic/attacks and stuff.
The point is that you create the complexity with your imagination, no need to be spoonfed all that shit to you

At least story-wise. In terms of gameplay they can be cool. I guess the story complexity can even be tolerated if the game is just too damn good (like some of those videos mentioned too) :P

Well...this goes on for any RPG basically. It still holds even truer to tabletop ones.
I'd prefer to play a Ticket to Ride over any DnD tabletop game any time.

GURPS is a simple but versatile system.


I really try to stay away from Warhammer 40k. I have enough expensive habits. I play the RPG though.

Savage Worlds is incredibly modular and you can use it for any setting.
