Pens and Papers

Recommended Posts

This perhaps could be part of the Board Game Thread, but since it's not exactly the same, I figured a new thread was in order. A thread to talk about the good ol' pen and paper style RPGs like D&D and GURPS, whether playing them live or online somehow.

Right now, I'm working on a game with the E6 ruleset, which basically means that leveling effectively stops at level 6 and beyond that it's just feats. Because BAB progression stops then, I'm thinking about a feat that would give you a BAB increase. Does anybody know of something like that? And if not, what do you think would be a good bonus for it? I was thinking +2 but I dunno, could be a bit much. Attack is one of the most often used rolls, after all, so a +1 would probably go a long way.

While I don't know of anything that increases BAB, I know there are various feats that improve your hit die by +1.

And running my second game of Pathfinder tomorrow! Let's see if I can manage to not murderize the party.

I want to play as a wizard. My intelligence is 18. How many spells can I cast each day, what are cantrips, what can I cast...I know nothing.

At level 1: 1 bonus first level spell, and 1 normal spell per day. Choose three 0 level spells (cantrips), and you can cast those an unlimited amount a day.

And find the Pathfinder srd (google), there you can find what spells you can cast.

Christ I had a big thing typed out and it lost it.

Basically, decide if wizard or sorcerer is best for You. As a new player id suggest going sorcerer. Youll get a few less spells to choose from, but youll get more uses from them and not have to choose ahead of time which youll have for the day.

So its a planning vs simplicity thing. Which appeals to you more?

Ran my second game of Pathfinder today! It went well! The party didn't do anything close to what I had planned, but I was able to roll with the punches. When I am less lazy, I will write up the two sessions.

In all honesty if you're just looking to throw a few fireballs or whatever and that's that, yeah its a better class.

You'll have less spells but you can use them in any order without planning ahead and do it more often.

Perfect for beginners.

I want to use Conjuring spells like summon monster and stuff. Will that still work?

I don't have the spell list in front of me, but I am 99% sure you can get Summon Monster.

One thing I like about Wizards is that you can spend GP to add more spells to your overall repertoire. A sorcerer makes a better specialist/combatant though.

Oh, and in D&D 3.5e Wizards get exactly one spell sorcerers don't, but that's because it has absolutely no value to sorcerers anyway because they can already do what the wizard spell is. Not sure if the same spell is in Pathfinder though... but otherwise, yeah, same spell list.

Also, I realized while I was DMing on Saturday that I suck at coming up with names for pubs/taverns/inns/whatever.

People! Help me make a list of shop names! And possibly booze/meals.

I use corny joke names myself, the cheesier the better. But barring that, try to use something appropriate to the owner or the city. Like, maybe the owner was a pikeman who was relieved of duty due to injuries, so the inn is called the Broken Spear.

I agree, the cheesier the better. I also like alteration. Or sometimes I come up with just the most retarded names ever....like "Beds, Beds and Beds"

I like "The <ADJECTIVE> <MONSTER FROM THE MONSTER MANUAL>" for my names, so I end up with things like The Wicked Dragon, The Sleeping Owlbear, or The Swarthy Manticore.

I'll make up a table later. :shifty:

This method also works for generating power metal band names.

      Hi there. I was given permission by your global mod Kaney to post here. I'm Cordero with Finger Gun Games. We just launched a new Kickstarter for a video game called Suplex Saga. It's a mixture of wrestling and rpg. I figured this board would like to hear about the project considering its topic at hand. Being a longtime wrestling fan myself, it's a pleasure to be here. The reason we are making this game is because throughout all the wrestling games I've played, they were just action games in the end. Career modes try to give that immersion of backstage drama and stories between wrestlers, but they never took it any further than they need to. No Mercy on N64 and the Smackdown games on PS1 & PS2 did a nice job with giving those reimagined scenarios of car-hitting and ambushes from behind. It was decent, but you never went beyond the arena life. We decided to take the angle of the kayfabe/ reality lives of wrestlers and turn it into a game. The action is no longer restricted in the ring, but in the world itself. If someone has a conflict with someone else about them stealing their girl or offending them by talking trash about their green leotard, they duke it out where they are. At the same time, you get into the behind-the-scene lives of wrestlers, seeing how their real life affects their wrestling life. It makes for an interesting new world, which helps with the rpg adventure angle we are throwing onto the genre. 

      We plan to release this game for Steam, with stretch goals slated for the PS4 and Nintendo Switch. If you guys have any questions and concern, please feel free to discuss it here. For more info on the project, you can check out the Kickstarter link:
