New DM is throwing up too many red flags!

There even used to be an internet porn site titled ElfPorn. (Featuring nekkid women with pointy ears.)

 

There was also a site titled NerdPr0n - I met the girl that used to run it the last time I was at GenCon. And, yes, she really is a nerd girl (and a gamer), just a bit more of an exhibitionist than most. She was there with a game company - and not as a booth babe.

 

Rule 34 pertains.

 

The world is a strange, strange place.

 

*EDIT* For the record - there was Holmes/Watson slash fiction that was written while Arthur Conan Doyle was still alive. He was not happy about it. <_<

 

The Auld Grump

Now, don't misunderstand me... I am not a dangerous pervert by any stretch. However, I do have this overactive imagination thing going. And I tend to spontaneously cram words together that probably should not be uttered in mixed company... ever. Call it a nervous twitch.

 

Being an intensely curious person, I then tend to type those words into a browser, just to see what happens.

 

Yeah...

 

This thread is noting some fringe stuff, and it's worth noting that it exists. But... there's stuff out there that no mortal human should see. And I've seen it. Trust me... I shouldn't have typed what I typed, and I shouldn't be telling you, but I'm telling you... you don't wanna know.

 

More loosely related, and much more tame (ironically), some of you I am sure know that The Escapist used to have a weekly video program documenting porn stars playing D&D. Nothing naked ever happened on screen; it was mainly a draw just because of the novelty of the thing. I think it was called "I Kill It With My Axe." It was entertaining enough. Total off-the-grid homebrew stuff. The kind of kill-happy game thirteen-year-olds dream of, but then more mature players eventually get sick of. Funny enough, sometimes.

To me it sounds like GM is hoping to make the best game world evar, and keeps upgrading to newer, shinier features. When you call him a new GM, is he new to GMing, or just new to you? Because this sounds like my first time GMing in my early 20s

It is.

 

Unlike you, I am hidden away where kids can't see me!

 

Not that there is anything to see. It looks like a straight up D&D site.

Supposedly he is not new to this. But I've never even met the guy, this is a game my wife roped me into.

It would be making me kind of twitchy.

 

It might be best to break off now.

Too far down the rabbit hole not to go to the first session. Besides I can't be the only one who wants to see how this "story" ends. 

 

If I had to guess, first session is a train wreck, I decide not to come back, and I tell the DM all the ways he pushed my wife and I away from his game.

Meanwhile, on rpg.net, there's a GM moaning about how his new players can't even follow simple character creation directions and are probably going to ruin the awesome game he has planned.

Not to deal in squick, but I own a Kindle, and often read books on it, and sometimes surf Amazon for deals.

 

I have seen elf porn.

I have seen dinosaur porn.

Once I even saw Krampus porn.

 

I've never read any; I have reached an age where I know there are things you DON'T want running loose in your head. But it's out there.

No, sorry. That was written in purple and meant to be humor. 

 

Though I did once read there someone's account of a perfectly awful evening with a new GM... followed the next day by a confused GM saying he didn't think it went down that way.

My mistake, that would be great though. Irony alone wouldn't quite cover that situation.

TBH, I've been carefully watching the D&D 5e group on FB, hoping to see a GM complain like this, with enough clues for me to figure out it's Rat13's GM.  I'll point out it out if it happens.

Well, y'know, actual ART made by ARTISTS tends to drive up prices and cut into profits, Pingo. And no one is buying this stuff for the cover art.

More I hear about this DM, the more I wonder why he didn't just hand out pregenerated characters.

Oh, I know, but man ...

 

Would it kill people to take a photo of handcuffs on a piece of satin fabric or something?

That would have been perfect. Especially since he ended up creating the characters anyway (at least for my wife and I). It'll be interesting to talk to the other players about the character creation.

 

I'm starting to wonder if he actually talked to the other players about his campaign idea. Perhaps we're just the odd ones out. Maybe I'm giving him too much credit.

      I'm not a war gamer even though my GW collection seems to keep growing. My local shop doesn't do any wargaming, it's basically a Magic the Gathering shop. In all honesty I was surprised they were hosting D&D Adventure League when I started playing there.
       
      Lately though after AL a bunch of us have been sticking around till close playing other games. Munchkin and Star Realms are pretty popular but we do get into other things from time to time. Those two just tend to be our go to games at the moment.
       
      Since I started painting I've been watching a lot of videos on the hobby and one of the channels I've been watching is Tabletop Minions. If you've ever been there you know they talk a lot about war gaming and skirmish games. 
       
      Well today that lead me to a skirmish game called Song of Blades and Heroes. It looked like a lot of fun with a very small learning curve. Basically it looks like something I'll be able to convince my group to try.
       
      Recently I became a DM for our group so I already have enough miniatures to create multiple "groups/troops/bands"(not sure what the proper term is for this game). So really all they have to do is give it a try, there is zero buy in for them.
       
      Does anyone here play this game? Is it as easy to learn as I've been lead to believe? I picked up the gist of it pretty quickly but will players be able to pick this up on the fly? As skimish games go how does this one rate?
       
      I've already ordered the books, both the revised and the advanced editions so I'm in either way but I'm interested in seeing if anyone else plays this.

      Okay, so I am going to be painting up this guy soon:
       

       
      I'm curious about what colors to use for the snow on the snowman. It doesn't seem to be a pure white (which makes sense) but I couldn't tell really what colors were used. I know that blues and even really dark blues, are often used for shadows (I know that Nightmare Black is actually a favorite of at least one forumite), but its the "white" that has me unsure. Any ideas? (as for the base, I realize that there are a number of options for putting snow on the base).
       
      As always, thanks in advance for any help?

      Gaming books are just like any other book - they have word count targets as well as page count targets and the people who write them tend to go over their allotment. This requires an editor to trim the fat. Unfortunately one of the first things to go under the knife in a core book is the game master advice portion of the book. As anyone that's read more than a few tabletop RPG books has noticed, there is always some system specific advice, but the general advice seems to be the same basic ideas, maybe presented slightly differently, but repeated over and over across the industry.
       
      Fortunately over the last couple of decades more and more books geared specifically for game masters have been published. For those GMs that want to up their game, whether it be plot, combat, handling NPCs, worldbuilding, or problem players there's advice out there for that. Not all of them give good advice and not all are worth picking up. This thread aims to be a resource, not just creating a list of books but also giving a bit of a review.
       
      The books listed here will not include core books unless someone finds one with unique advice. At this point my idea is to keep the list more general and avoid books that are majority system specific.  You won't find the DMG listed here, but you might find a DMG II. After all, that's where the advice that got cut out of the first one ends up.

      Hello everyone,
       
      I could use an advice or more some thoughts on something I am working on.

      I've once again dived headlong right into a new project for someone else.
       
      The topic is a pulp style game that is set in an alternate time of the 40s and incorporates some kind of superold cults and stuff.
       
      Anyway - I've been task to create a faction consisting of an android species that was originally created by one of the fractions as some kind of statues and then came to life by being merged with a soul. But as metal is a obviously a really unfitting material to merge with souls, those machine lifeforms became something like lost souls.
       
      Not they are out for revenge and fight the other factions.
       
      I am currently thinking about the colour scheme. As for the bodies, I thought about using sisters of silence from the warhammer universe and equip them with swords, MG 42 and FG 42 light machine guns to make them fit into the whole scenario.

      As for the faces I wanted to use a more light colour and white hair. I mean - why should androids have got different hair colours?
       

       
      I'd like to have them have red glowing eyes. Like this:
       

       
      And I then I thought of using the YoRHa heavy armor of the NieR Automata franchise as color reference.
       
      This is a guild wars 2 mod that gets as close as possible.
       

       
      more picture here:
       
      GW Nier Automata Style Armor
       
      But now I thought ... maybe thats a bit too dark. I mean - rather dark weapons, dark clothes, dark armor, only a bit of light color on the head and the hair. I am not sure if I'd consider that fitting.
       
      I'd like to hear your opinions on that topic.
