ITT: the meaning of your full name is a city, state, or country of the world we build.

When did pfg and sfg split up? What did I miss?

Also, any tips for roleplaying as a non-stereotypical pirate? Also he's a lycanthrope.
When starfinder actually came out and gave them something to talk about besides memeing.
About 2 weeks ago I think? Regardless both of the threads have been glacially paced ever since the split, which may or may not be a good thing based on your outlook.

What is the Difference between a Fairy and a Pixie?
25 posts and 2 images submitted.
Depends on the setting.
All pixies are fairies.

Not all fairies are pixies.
It's the difference between being a dog and bloodhound. You can be a dog without being a bloodhound, but you can NOT be a bloodhound without being a dog.

You can be a fairy without being a pixie (try a redcap or brownie, for example). But if you are a pixie: you are, by definition, also a fairy.

Hey, /tg/

I've agreed to DM a campaign for my friend and a couple of his friends tomorrow.

This is very short notice.

He requires visual aid, so I'm going to hook up my laptop to his television with an HDMI cable, and use Roll20 for tokens and maps.

I've never had to prepare a campaign in such a short timespan. Would you be willing to help me? I told them to start out at level 3, and we're playing D&D 3.5.

What sort of enemies should I put them up against? What sort of environment should I do? I'm thinking of going with Forgotten Realms - what's a good starting area?

Thanks in advance.

take a lesson from apoc world / dungeon world, just ask your players questions about their character's origins and contacts and experiences, use their answers to craft the game events, let them tell you what the setting and story is.
ok, here's what i'd do
>set them in the city of Neverwinter
>make them work for the Waterdeep trading guild and they're in charge of a caravan of goods going back to Waterdeep
>they are in charge of Caravan security, they have other guards NPCs with them they are in charge of on top of the traders and caravaneers along for the ride.
>what the players don't know is that they're carrying a Dragon egg, and the mama dragon has sent some underlings of hers to try to recuperate it before it hatches.
>Green Dragon from the Neverwinter Forest.
>She will send in, at first, a group of Kobolds of hers to set up a few traps and ambush them on the road near Neverwinter.
>Second encounter is human mercenaries with maybe a handful of magic items (so the players can recuperate them at the end of combat if they win)
>Third encounter is at night, where the dragon hired assassins to steal the Dragon egg back and eliminate all witnesses, making it look like standard raiders
>Fourth encounter has her waiting for them near Waterdeep and going for them in a full frontal assault against them. dragon would be an Adult.
That's a CR 13 for the Adult Green Dragon.

They would have to roll an 18 on caster level checks to bypass it's spell resistance, and it would be impossible to hit, since it has an AC of 27. That, and it has 230~ HP. They might be able to do a grand total of 10 damage to it before a TPK, if they get incredibly lucky.

I like it, though. I'll use it as a framework.

I've been making homebrew tabletop RPGs as a hobby for a very long time and I now I'd like to try to make some homebrew tabletop GAMES.

The problem is that games require pieces like tokens, paws etc all sorts of plastic craps while you jsut need paper and imagination with an RPG.

Second problem being that I'm a poor fag that lives in the middle of nowhere, I always have a hard time getting shit (Hell even getting polyhedral dices is a pain where I live), getting the hardware to make a tabletop game would be difficult especially since my idea isn't an abstract game (basically I want to make tabletop doorkickers).

So how do you prototype a game?

>you jsut need paper and imagination

You can worry about the plastic bits later, just make paper/cardboard ones first. You're probably going to be spending a lot of time in the development phase, so making cheap paper versions is probably the way to go.

In fact, there's a lot of games I've played recently that came with plastic little trophies or pieces that I genuinely thought would have been better as just pogs or cards.

After you've got a working prototype, that's when you might want to think about getting a 3D printer. Some are relatively inexpensive, but if you're a poorfag just doing it as part of a hobby, you might want to try scultping and making molds and then making resin casts. There's a lot of tutorials for things like making casts of models that might be helpful.

GB Tron, although I'm considering switching to Eldrazitron. I'm hesitant to pull the trigger on it though considering the price of chalices right now.
I don't really hate anything in particular, I feel the meta is pretty healthy at the moment. I am still a little miffed that I got dunked on by revolt zoo last friday though. But I mean, that's not gunna be a good match up no matter what I do.
G/W Mono-walls. It's in a good enough shape right now that if my store started leaning harder towards creature decks I'd actually consider playing it.
>Thread Q
I mean, realistically, probably Bant. Seems safer than any of the other planes. If I get to be a powerful wizard or something though definitely pre-RoE Zendikar.

Does it harden in a way that immediately seals the wounds? Would that make it hard to remove? Does it stay liquid and somehow not hot enough to burn you? I like it, but I need details.

Hi /tg/.
I'm soon to run a typical nordic themed fantasy adventure, I've ran many of the same kind before and so has my players (with other DM's). But this time I want it to be different for all of us.

I usually run the nordic themed adventures with lots of snow, big and strong men whom wants to die in battle for some bearded god.

Do you guys have any ideas for a good nordic themed adventure or setting that hasn't been done to death?
Also, newTakeOnTypicalSettings-thread.

>good nordic themed

Oxymoron if I've ever heard one.

The only good thing to come out of Nordic culture was the 13th Warrior.
Do it in North America with a Native American theme. Your PC's group were left behind when the remaining vikings fled back across the ocean and now you have to keep your settlement alive with no prospect of rescue.
Post-frozen-apocalypse? The world was once a place of beautiful greens until the demons came. As cold as the land of the dead, they speed across the world like a blanket of snow. Only the hardest and strongest have lived to this point. Now your players have to contend with other tribes for supplies as well as hordes of terrible demons: twisted recreations of the animals and people of the old world.

Jeanjac le Rouge, spooky highwayman and killer of debauched nobles and drunken revelers.
They say he can jump on a horse-drawn-carriage in one leap.
Well, there's the PCs...
Well, there's this group of men who travel town to town actively meddling with the locals and trying to get things done on their own without following any proper legal procedures. For some reason the government never tries to arrest them for looting and tracking the group has been difficult because they all appear to be vagabonds.

They all carry rope and poles around everywhere as if it's ok to do that.
