New to Reaper Forums! Come say hi to a noob!

Recommended Posts

Hi there everyone! Oakydeer here, and I'm a very very new to the world of tabletop RPGS. I'd always heard of the magical game dungeons and dragons but was always intimidated by it and didn't know when or how to start.


 


But a month ago, I decided to take the plunge and gather my friends for our first DnD session, with me as the DM. And... we all became obsessed. So now, here I am, completelly engrossed in the world of tabletop RPGs and eager to start sculpting and painting my own figures!


 


I'm open to any advice from any of you wonderful veterans regarding anything, be it painting and sculpting, to game tips, to a simple friendly hello. Let's be friends! :>

Welcome to the forum, the hobby of miniature painting, and the fun that is tabletop RPGS!

 

First thing I'd do, is peruse the Tips/Advice section, particularly this thread. Then go check out the works in the show-off section of other hobbyists and ask questions, post your own works in progress, seek advice/comments/critiques, practice, practice, practice, and most of all.... HAVE FUN!

Oh wow you guys! Thank you SO so much for your quick AND kind response! I'm honestly not used to such open, welcoming communities! I can tell I'm going to have a great time here! 8D

Welcome to the Pond !  If the information you desire isn't here, someone will tell you where to find it.

You have entered the domain of a lot of helpfulness, knowledge, wisdom, and a generous dash of patience.

Put on your slippers, or go barefoot, and wander through the forums.  At the base of the main forum on the

right side are some interesting postings.  The most visited section is a mind blower.

Hard to imagine that these folks painted them.  You will learn a great deal from the WIP's, and the Show

off forum will make you go ::o:.  Enjoy, and I look forward to seeing you paint and post !

If you have questions, please ask. People here are plenty willing to share tips, advice, and recommendations.

 

Also, you may notice a much higher proportion of women members here than on most rpg-related sites. That's because Reaper fosters a family-friendly, welcoming environment for all.

Welcome to the forums and the hobby, deer! I love your name, it makes me imagine that you have little antlers. I do! :3

 

I'm a noob at D&D and painting too, the amazing thing about these forums is how all us noobs and vets get to mix around and get fun ideas and learn from each other.

 

There's a wealth of information here, and the forums are outstanding for their helpfulness and friendliness. ^_^

 

If you really want to get chatty, check out the Randomness thread. Lots of fun people to meet and talk to there! 

 

Edit: Your avatar is amazing! Did you do that Dia De Los Muertos makeup yourself?

I hate it when the forum eats my post...

 

WELCOME!

 

Mind your manners (or *BONK!* or a modbat may make an appearance), don't spill the coffee (or the barbarian will rage... maybe cry... no one wants to see a crying, raging barbarian), hide your bacon (from the wolves), don't lick your brush (lest you summon Pingo's wrath and a lecture), that smell is goblin (re: Buglips; since you're new you've no need to hide your vintage paints), that's a halo (not the One Ring) which you get once you achive Godlike status and enter the realm of Reapergaard, and...

 

HAVE FUN!

 

As suggested, read! Watch videos! Learn! We all have our own way of doing things, but there is a LOT of fantastic information to be gleaned from here.

 

ub3r will try to get you to empty your wallet on all the shiney. Watch out for that, but also note not to link directly to a website for selling stuff. It's teh Roolz.

 

Knarthex ub3r, and Thrym are awesome on info for basing. Pingo, too... she does lovely trees.

 

Talespinner's sculpting posts are things to watch. Mr. Andrew Pieper himself (sculpts for Reaper), and there are several other excellent sculptors in that forum.

 

Malefactus has the most whimsical, creative, fantastic imagination this side of Tim Burton.

 

Sirithiel does fantastic dragons and well worth looking at her WIPs for tips and ideas.

 

Pingo and Corporeal and Marsya and Wren and Citrine also have Show Offs well worth looking at and a few WIPs. Marsya has a Red Hair tutorial that is most excellent (WAY!).

 

Froggy is the Froggcident king. Conversions of mind boggling creativity.

 

I think that should give you a good start... :lol:

Yeah! I was actually wondering whether I should hide my gender at first... I've been part of communities where I was certainly shown a lot more respect as a "boy" than as myself. I'm SO glad to see that's not the case here. U u U

Nope, we welcome everyone. No discrimination here.

      Deadlands Lost Colony is a roleplaying game setting for the Deadlands universe and uses the Savage Worlds Adventure Edition game system. It takes place in 2097, thirteen years after the Last War in Deadlands Hell on Earth. Hellstromme Industries created a “Tunnel” between Earth and a distant star system later called Faraway. Millions of colonists settled on asteroid mining stations and the only inhabitable planet, Banshee, before the Tunnel collapsed and left them stranded. Now the humans must fend for themselves against a rogue military, ruthless pirates, angry anouks, the rise of an evil alien presence, and worst of all, the arrival of the Reckoners—made flesh on Earth and exiled to Banshee!

      A little more than 48 hours left for this one, I think it looks really cool.

      Kamigakari: God Hunters is a tabletop role-playing game set in modern-day Japan that combines centuries of Japanese mythology with a modern-day setting and urban fantasy action. You play as a God Hunter, a being wielding supernatural strength, magical abilities, and reality-warping spiritual powers. Your mission is to protect an unsuspecting populace from evil beings known as Aramitama, and to prevent the supernatural from leaking into the public eye.
      Originally, the game was released in Japan by Arclight Games on November 2013 as Legendary Arms RPG Kamigakari, to great popularity. In January 2017, a text-only fan translation appeared on the internet, exposing Kamigakari to the attention of English-speaking RPG fans world wide, and creating a thriving fanbase that continues to grow to this day!
      Serpent Sea Games is a team of experienced RPG translation and development professionals, including the creator of the fan translation, who have licensed Kamigakari from the creators at Arclight Games for publication in English and want to bring the game officially to Western audiences.
        But we need your help to bring this book into existence!
      The Game
      The world of Kamigakari features a distinctly seinen action anime  and style to it. With crazy abilities and flashy powers, it's an over-the-top world where you can battle kaijus, giant robots, gods and demons all under the same umbrella. The system is designed to keep interactions as simple and intuitive as possible, for an easy pick-up-and-play. Kamigakari splits its play up into "scenes", which are short, episodic and will often split the focus onto individual players. It's a different experience compared to western systems that often assume the party is always together, which allows for more varied and engaging character focus and development.
      So what is a God Hunter? A God Hunter is a person who, through one means or another, has gained supernatural powers by possessing a shard of a legendary weapon, relic, suit of armor, or maybe even the crystallized soul of a legendary hero. These powers can be anything from a master of the sword or magic, transforming hero, a living avatar of flame, or the ultimate hacker. Instead of a familiar class-based system, Kamigakari uses its own character generation called Styles, which lets you mix and match your power sets to create a gun-slinging samurai, a chainsaw-wielding magical girl, a hacker who codes his magic into existence, or a hunter who stalks his victims through the shadows.
      And it's not just limited to your class: weapons and gear are utilized under the Arms system, a mechanic where a base weapon is upgraded over time by using materials or spending gold. Two basic swords, in the hands of two different god hunters, can end up very different weapons after extensive modification!
      An average God Hunter on a normal day. Does being a God Hunter mean that you hunt gods? Of course it does! With concepts rooted in Shintoism and traditional Japanese folklore, a God Hunter is tasked with tracking down dangerous beings known as Aramitama - a dark god that is born and grows in power by devouring the souls of its victims. Aramitama come in many forms - from recognizable Japanese icons like oni and tengu, mythical beings like the Pegasus or Griffin, to eldritch monstrosities made of gnashing teeth and glowing orbs. Upon defeating an Aramitama, God Hunters can use their remains to create stronger Regalia - magical weapons and equipment, in order to face even even more powerful Aramitama. It's not just a fun gameplay loop, either: These creatures threaten the sanctity of innocents and the world in their lust to reach their ultimate form, the Avatar of Ruin, a true god of destruction capable of ending the world. It's up to the God Hunters to prevent that!
      An Aramitama awakens. Kamigakari utilizes the unique Numen Dice pool. Numen Dice are resource wherein you roll a set of dice and use it to pay for abilities or change the outcome of a roll. There's many ways change, swap and spend dice. Players must be careful how they manage their Numen Pool to both survive the battle and save the perfect set of Numen Dice to activate their ultimate abilities!
      We'd like to support this game far into the future, and plan on translating and releasing supplements if financially viable. Arclight Games has also requested the creation of original content exclusive to the western release, but that can probably wait until we have a few expansion books finished, we're only mentioning it now in the interests of full transparency.

      My 5 1/2 yo son is super into Batman.  I had set up a Pathfinder game for the grownups, but only filled 2/4 seats.  My son has shown a little and growing interest in tabletop gaming.  So I made some stats for Batman as a Pathfinder character and used his LEGO Batman on the battle grid.
       
      Here are how it came out: attributes were rolled.
      Race Human
      Class Ranger (Urban) lvl 1
      Str 16
      Dex 19 (+2 human)
      Con 14 
      Int 13
      Wis 14
      Cha 8
       
      Favored Class Ranger +1 HP
      Trait: Rich Parents
      Trait: Deft Dodger (+1 Reflex)
      Favored Enemy Humanoid (human)
      Feat - Improved Unarmed Strike
      Feat Human - Exotic Weapon Prof - Shuriken
       
      Skills - don’t remember exactly, sheet isn’t in front of me:
      Acrobatics, Craft (alchemy), Disable Device, knowledge (local), perception, Survival, Stealth
       
      Gear- I took some liberties here for flavor:
      Mwk Studded Leather, Batarangs(shuriken shaped like a bat available in a lethal or non lethal variety), smoke bombs (combine thunderstone and smoke stick in one thrown item same price as both combined), Mwk thieves tools, sap, spiked gauntlets x 2 (his sharp things sticking out of his arms), Grapnel: (Light Crossbow + 50ft silk rope + Mwk grappling hook + 100gp to account for the “gnomish winch”) I would have loved to make it a hand crossbow, but didn’t want to waste two feats on exotics.  I just tacked on cost to the various gear to use up the gold from rich parents and still leave him with a good kit.
       
      He made level two and I chose an alt. Option for weapon style: thrown weapon.  That gave him bonus feat of Precise Shot without needing Point Blank Shot, but I plan on adding it later.
       
      Let me know what you think.
       
      My son didn’t have the attention span to stay at the table for long: his cousins were in the pool, so he ended up there.  My friend always plays the Cleric, but he ran Batman as a second character and had a blast with it.
