The Tabletop Gaming Thread

The only threads in here dedicated to tabletop RPGs and wargames are at least two years old, so I figured I'd make a new one.

So, discuss tabletop RPGs and wargames. D&D, Pathfinder, World of Darkness, Shadowrun, Warhammer 40K, etc.

RESOURCES:

Pathfinder SRD Wiki
http://www.d20pfsrd.com/

New World of Darkness Wiki (this page doesn't appear to have been edited in a long-ass time)
http://nwod.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page

Virtual Tabletops:

Vassal/Vassal Modules

OpenRPG

JParanoia (Paranoia client written in Java; what I'll be using for my Paranoia campaign whenever it gets off the ground)

Anyone else play Pathfinder? I'm in an online campaign with some people from the Anime Thread. We're doing a pirate thing.

I've been trying to start a Paranoia campaign as well. I've never GM'd before, though.

Aww, no references to robes and wizard hats in the OP.


I want a Berserk Tabletop RPG. I don't know how it would work, but it'd be awesome. You could probably base the system off of NWoD.

I wouldn't mind doing it every-so-often. I was thinking about writing sort of a diary thing from the point of view of my character.

Go ahead, it would be awesome. Btw, if you go ahead with your reclassing we could do a short skit for your leveling into DD.

Who would ever in their sane minds include you in the same category as themselves Ichi?

I actually want to give DM'ing another try. My first attempt was god awful, but after being in a few campaigns I think I could actually do it. However, DM'ing something like Pathfinder seems a bit difficult because of all the rules and such.

More often then not, people's first attempts at running campaigns are disasters. The point is to learn from your mistakes and be adaptable.
Players will miss your plot hooks; they'll murder and loot the NPCs who are supposed to help them on their way; and they'll get their characters drunk and arrested when they should be schmoozing their way through the upper echelons of society.

My problem was actually the exact opposite of that. I unintentionally railroaded my players because I was stupid and very inexperienced.

I'd go with inexperience.
The thing about DM'ing is that there's no single right way to do it(there are a lot of right ways to do it), but there are, equally, any number of wrong ways to do it. And whether a method is right or wrong can change depending on your players, your campaign, whether there's an 'r' in the month...

OK, maybe not quite the last one.
Preparation helps; but so does improvisation.

Okay, updated the OP.

Also added in a link to JParanoia to anyone who's interested in playing Paranoia. Technically, the recommended max is six players, and I've got two on board already (although one's had his computer stolen, although he'll most likely get it back), but you can have a bigger game. I've heard it's best with four to six players, though.

You don't have to sign up for anything (unless you don't have Skype), but yeah, you'll need to download the client we use. Like for our Pathfinder campaign, you'll need to get VASSAL and the RPG Tactical module, plus the character sheet.

VASSAL is tiny, though.

JParanoia is also tiny, and the Paranoia rulebook isn't that necessary for player characters, so you'd just need to get the character sheet here and I'd help you fill it out, I guess.

You might like Paranoia. It's rules-light, pretty fucking funny, and you die a lot. Which is why you get multiple lives (clones) unlike basically every other tabletop RPG.

I dunno if you have the patience for Pathfinder. It's RULESRULESRULESRULES, but fun.
