Based on my first City of Villains MMO character, here's a tongue-in-cheek homage to one of DC's Top Three for your Fate Core superhero game.
I've been lax on posting my #CallOfCthulhu #DownDarkerTrails #ttrpg scenarios and session summaries. So, this week, I'll be posting at least the last 2, if not all 3, of this year's sessions.
@urbanfuzzy Oh, some of those classic cross between choose your own adventure and ttrpg books were great. I had a few of the Lone Wolf and LotR books, but I really loved the Narnia Solo Games books.
@takeonrules Not a week goes by where I don't have to remind an enterprise-level client with a CMS that a 2mb+ image upload is not a good idea (not all CMS systems have dynamic image compression--but they really should).
I'm the only gamer in my apartment (my roommate doesn't play any board/card/video games), and I can only stare at a computer screen so long. So, when I want to play an RPG-style board game, I have to find a game that allows solo play. My Top Five solo board games (with an RPG feel) are my topic du jour. Additional recommendations welcome!
@emsenn I saw it because it was boosted. I wonder if there's some sort of deletion protection on cross-group boosts?
@emsenn Can you provide a source for that? I'm finding news about quarantines and border closure, but nothing about rent/utility suspensions.
Over the weekend I wrote a new Sorcerous Origin for #DnD called Startouched.
@WanderingBeekeeper There are some distinct advantages to online tabletop! I've been considering re-joining Roll20 again. Makes it easier for scheduling and, uh, disease control. Plus, no travel or pants required.
@Golux13 Bird Flu 2: This Time It's Personal
@Golux13 Champions/Hero definitely seemed to be the system of choice for its time. I, personally, always felt it was too math-heavy, both in character creation and in execution. My groups typically ran Marvel or V&V.
@Golux13 That makes sense. I don't mind if that happens at the gaming table, but it would up my anxiety levels at a party.
I think there's also difficulties, when being the newbie among regulars, of knowing if the table might do/say things that I might find offensive. People who are casual with each other can sometimes be a little less restrained and 1 stranger might not affect that.
There's a "comfort level" form regarding possible topics at a gaming table, maybe have everyone fill out that?
@Golux13 It's probably because most of my gaming since I moved to Portland has been open-table that I'm just used to plopping down or a GM with strangers.
Out of curiosity, how do you feel when you play at a convention open table; same levels of anxiety?
@Golux13 I normally just start up gaming as usual, unless the group is typically brittle to new people. But, given that I've sat at the same table with you, I don't think that's the case with most of your squad. I only knew Rex when I joined his games.
Keeping the first sessions about the PCs getting to know each other can also be a good lead-in with a new player to the table.
