    Welcome to the fucking TTT, where we discuss our favorite Table Top RPGs, RPGs we're currently playing, war games, board games, GM advice, epic stories from the basement table, talk about up and coming shit, and ask people if they want to join our games. @Likeicare sticky please? Oh, and @Radha the Buttwhisperer @Failstation get your asses in here.

    I'll start first with one of my players characters accidentally got high and in the process accepted a challenge by his arch rival in the newly built wrestling pit. Despite it only being a combat between two people, it some how lasted an hour (time flies when you're doing awesome shit). By the end of it he grew Sephiroth hair, red glowing eyes, and they both knocked each other out.

    Do you know how to turn a single enemy stat block into a swarm while still keeping the probability the same?

    What system are u running?

    Are you looking for a monster stat shift?
    If ur trying a home brew angle, (I'm a shit DM btw) use swarm rules found in a monster manual for ur system.
    If it's something like say a spell that u wanna change into a swarm spell with a large AOE instead of just a single target that could be a lil harder.

    That would depend on the char stat ur effecting to maybe?
    Gimme some background I will get back to u about it later if u want.

    There's this one board game I remember. I forget what it was called but it combined elements of RPGs and board games into this Lovecraftian dungeon crawl where every room was randomly generated.
    It's a d6 system rather than a d20, but the basic principal or roll+stat+skill still applies. The problem I'm really encountering is how to factor in the "ganging up" bonus. Basically every attack after the first gets a +1 that stacks infinity. Also damage isn't rolled separately, it's a base number plus whatever margin you rolled above the DC - armor.

    Also, Rady, I'd be willing to join a game if you agree to run FATAL.

    1. I hate hate hate DM'ing.
    2. If you have had sexual intercourse with another living human that was consensual, you are not allowed to play FATAL.
    If you haven't had sex, u can still play FATAL, but u trade in all hope of losing ur v-card in order to build a character in that system.

    There's a lesson here, and it's don't play FATAL. Unless you wanna end up like The Member Formerly Known As Baya.

    D6 system? Are u playing warhams?
    Why factor it in tho? Idk how much leeway u wanna give ur players in this instance usually tho if it's a swarm n they don't destroy it toots sweet quick, they SOL. I guess you could divide the damage by the # of the swarm for each hit, but then if the players destroy a portion of the swarm you'd be limiting ur data potential .
    You could treat the swarm as a single entity but then you have the limit there if part of it gets destroyed. What sort of enemy is it?

    My friend had a D6 but I had a D20 so I always used to kick his ass in battles. One time he was crying so I threw all of his models on the floor.

    Bitch I hate GMing to but I do it anyways. Besides, I've always had a morbid curiosity about FATAL. As far as I know there's only been one recorded game of it so it's uncharted waters.
    Not 40K. It's one of those obscure ones. Basically the enemies are difficult in normal circumstances but since the PCs have 3m tall mech suits they are the equivalent of kobolds. I've had to create 20 character sheets for every unit.

    I'd recommend pandemic. It's a game where you all have to work together.

    Listen Cinnamontits, I'm a bad Dm. That's all, lol, I'm terribly disorganized n to be a decent DM you gotta be a lil bit sadistic or else it's too easy on ur PCs. Don't got it in me.

    FATAL is alot like other very niche nerd fantasy games where u get to play out ur creepy rape fantasies, except with graph paper. I think. Closest I've ever come was Vampire the Masquerade. N I bailed on that game cuz it got weird, real fast.


    Have you played Call of Cthulu or any other Lovecraft style horror games? They're pretty fun.

    For your game, with the swarm issue: difficult terraine + enemies that can do direct damage to PCs in suits (is there magic, do something with that) or incapacitate suits.
    One thing that makes kobolds some of my fav enemies (aside from the swarm bit) is the unpredictability of them and the fact that a group can have a warrior, ranged and magic class in it. Done right and u can have a decent annoying/injurious horde. Use terrain to hiddlin them.

    Being a GM is easy if you have a simple enough system. And it's not sadistic to do something that will entertain your players.

    FATAL isn't a niche game, it's total burning trash. Have you ever looked at the rule book? Half that thing is random tables.

    Wanted to GM CoC. Never got the chance. That's one of the most complicated systems I've ever hands down.

    I'm not changing anything about the terrain or anything. I just want a way to solve 10 different rolls with one. And I did admittedly just this of a way to potentially do that, though I'm not sure how well it will go over.

    Idk....... I'm a bad game mommy...

    I've never known anyone to actually play FATAL cuz of how weird n unweildy the system is. But I do know ppl who love incredibly stupid game systems AND have weird rape fantasies, they like niche games so that's prolly where that came from. There was some weird miniature startup group that was trying to get a new game off years ago.
    Kingdom of Death, here's one of their signature models:
    upload_2019-1-12_12-56-17.
    the Wet Nurse lol.
    and the back view of their model:
    [​IMG]
    yes that is a molded vagina.... and yes that lady is very pregnant.....
    Starter set is a mere $400 dollars, and you pay the shipping costs (Wetnurse and other large monsters not included, I think that's an extension set) !
    https://shop.kingdomdeath.com/products/kingdom-death-monster-1-5
    The models are incredibly well made, but the entire thing is deffo a fetish game. The type of ppl that buy this game are the type of ppl I think would play FATAL. Except I think this game might be playable because it was in the works for a couple of years and I think it even had a moderately successful Kickstarter or something campaign. I kinda stopped following it after they rolled out the WetNurse, it got too ridiculous for me.

    For a fun model company, I really liked privateer press. This was years ago but the system for Warmachine/Hordes was pretty easy for a casual like me to get into, the models were amazing (the female models actually liked like ladies, unlike the early 40k SOBs who just looked like someone greenstuffed some tits on powerarmor) and had some pretty awesome designs. Games Workshop/Warhammer lost alot of biz to these guys simply because it was a fun easy to play game that didn't require 5 billion pieces for a decent fun game. Plus, there was enough overlap btwn Warmachine and Hordes that u could kiiinda cobble the two systems together.


    CoC is pretty easy to play, I think @Wraffles rolled out a game on here with everyone but I had clinical and missed it. :(

    Oh and privateer press's paints didn't dry out after 2 days in a pot and didn't clog up my airbrush paint gun like warhammer's did.

    Oh, and in case you still think you're a shit GM. Read this sometime. This guy knows everything from how to use traps properly to how to stop encounters from becoming stale.

    Roll20 is completely free. The only reason to get a subscription is to get the dynamic lighting, or make your own sheets with HTML. I do both.

    CoC is among the simplest systems...and with the added value that any well designed module makes combat irrelevant, you just can poop your pants and die or flee screaming/drool in a cell against any of the non-human foes. Among the best, quite funny and very little testosterone fueled.

    Another of the funniest, utterly frustrating if well done:
