I play DND, actually DM an IRC session and play as a character in another. Both are on hold for the summer though.

It's fun stuff, kinda tedious at times.

It's actually too fighting based for my taste. I'm currently playing vampire the masquerade table top with some friends. It seems to be more roleplaying based and the rules are not set in stone, so the game progressive pretty dynamically.

I used to play DnD though honestly fantasy isn't my favorite genre to RPG. I've played a lot more futuristic or superhero games, like Cyberpunk 2020, Heroes Unlimited, Villians and Vigilantes, Star Wars RPG, etc. I've been collecting the core Call of Cthulhu books and I'm wanting to start a game of that IRL, though for some reason SLA Industries has been piquing my interest for the past few weeks...

I've played, but it's tough to find a good DM to play with. I'd DM myself, but I really suck at it.

havent played for 10 years, but definatley have great memories from it.

It would be cool (or may yet be cool) to have a well developed online virtual world to play with others again. Technology is almost there. THe new wave of video cards coming out in Dec are going to open such doors, if developers can put something decent out.

The problem is good DM's like to play too but no one ever lets them because they are good at DM'ing and other aren't or just won't.

So you get bored and give up. *speaking personally*

I play, or I should say "run", quite a number of different PnP games. I really like what was done with D&D in 3.0, though I think the 3.5 thing is blatant customer base abuse.

I just wish that anyone else in my group could run worth a crp. Heck, I'd be happy if they could just run for any respectable length of time.

3.5 balanced the game ALOT.

One of the major improvements was the Ranger class.Which was very much needed imo.

They changed spells to make them reasonable.(I dunno about some of these...)They gimped the most powerful ones.Example:Harm...Polymorph Other..
Bascially encounter breaking spells that players used alot.

Try going to Wizards of the Coast website for more info


Quick thing..."Harm" was a spell that had the potential to take a target's HP down to 1d4 on a failed saving throw.Imagine a dragon with 300+hp failing his save? The "impossible" encounter just got dropped to trivial.

That was harm before the change...pretty powerful no?

That wasnt the complete listing for the spell...but in a nutshell..that was it.

Played/Ran lots of AD&D. Even sell the stuff.
I like Superhero RPGS (Champions) more though.

Only so many times you can go into a dungeon to rescue the (fill in the blank) before it gets old.

I play D&D sometimes. I recently picked up Neverwinter Nights to participate in a D&D gaming session using NWN. The DM made a module where it's pretty much vanilla D&D. If you die, no respawning at the Temple of Tyr. Stuff like that.

I played a little D&D when I was like 11 or 12 years old with my cousin and a couple other friends... But we mainly played this RPG/board game called Dragonstrike, and it was really cool. We'd always argue over who would get to be the warrior... I usually settled for thief, but I remember being wizard a couple times and kicking a lot of ass.

Damed, I'm a Pen and Paper RPG freak. It sort of comes with the whole uber nerd package I got going in my life right now. Anyway, In my apartment there are 5 PnP rpg's running that meet weekly. All of the people who live here are sort of connoisseurs too. DnD is a classic and a staple. The 3.5 revisions were mostly good, but I think it was really stupid of them to release the 3.5 monstrous manual simultaneously. It means they didn't have a chance to find the *new* balance issues and deal with them. Its also a flaming case of customer abuse. re-buying the whole set of books was not something most people were planing on doing.

On a related note, I must say that I love white wolf for having the balls to end their world(s) vampire/werewolf/mage has been harping on the Apocalypse for a long time, and its a glimmer of the company I once loved to have the balls to kill the whole WoD line. (I haven't exactly liked the last three games they put out, and there 3rd edition revisions while containing some good rule changes are pacifying and homogenizing the formerly quite dark content)

I was sort of wondering where the RPGers were on TFP, Now I see that they are simply drowning in discussion of computer games. Sort of sad really.

Oh also I might as well ask, does anyone know where I can get a print copy of "warlock: the black spiral"?

AIM Chat room:
//roll-DiceX-SidesY

Where X == the number of dice to roll
AND Y == the Number of Sides on the Dice

There are other means, but thats off the top of my head.

Apokx: Harm was extremely broken in 3.0. I was in a 20th lvl campaign... and we face a hideosly powerful Red Dragon... The GM forgot something when we started fighting and remembered in the middle.... the Dragon was REALLY powerful.. oh look.. HARM!.. I shoot it with my arrow afterwords.. and its dead...... So yeah, I'm glad they fixed it (but i haven't gotten 3.5 so i don't know what it is now )

You want something broken?

using the first level spell "true strike" you can produce a really sick item. craft wondrous item (say gloves) with true strike continuously active. To make it takes a 3rd level wiz 2 days, 80xp and 1000 gold, and it has a market price of 2000 gold.

It gives +20 to all attacks. The good news is that few GM's are will see that and not balk and ban it. It works in the rules though. (I think it still works in 3.5)

Here's a little trick I love.


Level 1 Ranger spell:"Hunter's Mercy"(Forgotten Realms)

First arrow shot(Every Round) is an automatic hit,followed by a check to see if the hit was critical.Now,with some specialty classes,you can get the crit modifier on a bow up to x5/x6.

100+ Damage with a single crit is truly impressive.(With a strong enough bow/arrows)

I have never had a character do so much damage in a round..ever.


This isnt as easy to make as the gloves mind you,but this combined with the new ranger class changes makes my head spin.

(I used this tactic with a 3.0 ranger..plus some other prestige archer classes like deepwood sniper *I think*)

If you want I can dig up the char sheet and attach the info

Ok I found my Hobgoblin archer.

He was 10/10/4/5/0 Ranger/Deepwood Sniper/Fighter/Order of the Bow
He was rank 0 Deity.(After the campaign)
I was using a Mighty Composite Longbow:
Keen/Ghost Touch/ Holy/Unholy Hunter's Mercy and +8/+5 Str.
Bracers of Archery +2 hit/+1 damage.
With class abilities I had Range+100
Consistent Aim 3/Day.
Take Aim (+4 Stationary Target)
Bow Crit -Crit Modifier increased to x5
Ranged Attack did +3d6 sneak attack damage.
Had all the bow related feats.
Had an Endless Quiver of Elhonna...

So thats my equipment..time for damage calcs...

Full Attack round was +63/58/53/48/63/63
1d8+32 +1d6 shock/2d6 holy/2d6 unholy chaotic +3d6/15d6 on a crit...4d10 shock on a crit.
Crit 18-20 x5

So assuming I landed every arrow...
Shot#1 = 257 damage
#2=54
#3=54
#4=54
#5=54
#6=54

Grand Total = 527 (average damage,not maxed)

We didn't have an RPG Club in my school. Most of the schools I went to were on military bases (Dad was in the Army) and there "RPG" meant "Rocket Propelled Grenade". Very few schools would allow clubs revolving around explosive devices...

At my peak my sophomore year of college I was running one and playing in four games a week. Two Forgotten Realms, Dragonlance, Ravenloft, DM Created World and Mage.
Now I am down to one Forgotten Realms game once a month, but I also goto 2 different LARPs frequently since there is not much PnP gaming anymore.
If you think the President of your RPG club is the Ubergeek, then they need to step aside as that title belongs to the guys running the LARPs
The amount of hours they put into rules and setup alone qualifies them for the title. Let alone the closet full of foam weapons and elf ears.

I still play That may change when Face of Mankind comes out though - it's supposed to be totally focussed on roleplaying, with new storylines being thought up (by players, too) all the time, so players wont be stuck with the ones preprogrammed into any game..

If it will become what I hope, it will be cool. Release only in the first quarter of 2004 though, but there's a beta in october (www.faceofmankind.com)
