Can a romance between an elf and a human be done in a "realistic" / sensible way or is it pretty much always wish-fullfilment coming from human GMs and players and sort of a magical realm?

Which is more pathetic?
A) People who play weird snowflake characters because they desperately want to feel special and don't realize that weird snowflake characters are normal
B) people who play bland boring default characters because they desperately want to feel special and mistakenly believe that bland and boring default characters are special?

There is no other reason to play RPGs, by the way, every single player fits into these categories even if they aren't aware of it.

What is the best way to include an investigation element into your plot? I always try and give every character the chance to gather different information about environments, NPCs and events around them, like a technician noticing something different from a soldier despite looking at the same thing. I occasionally have the players find notes or reports, but if it's really important I usually just cut to the relevant parts, like saying "you notice that in these logistical reports there's an unusual amount of batteries being moved around". I try to avoid being too obscure because I fear I may pitch them against a riddle that seems clear inside my head, but is actually impossible to solve form outside, so the best I can come up with is more similar to following breadcrumbs rather than actually gathering evidence and figuring it all out. Then again, I wouldn't even know how to actually place and expose the evidence in the right way for it not to be too obvious or seemingly pointless.

I want to get better at this, so I was hoping someone here might give some good advice.

>> No.77842677
Quoted By: >>77843002

If you can afford it, look into Monster of the Week. It's a whole game system based around investigations. The DM's guide part where it talks about how to run an investigation was really eye opening to me.

In summery, MotW says "don't plan every single stage of your mystery. Plan a timeline that will happen if the players don't get involved, then put them into an open world. Improvise the game from there to make it so that the players make the leads, rather than you pre-making them. This makes a mystery so much easier to prep (you can belt one out in an hour) and makes your players feel smart."

>>77842677
Will look into it, thank you. I generally don't really keep a track of time if it's not plot relevant, as most of our sessions go by from one "scene" to another similarly to how L5R does it, but it will be interesting to try it out. But while that would help in pacing the events happening, it's the seeding of clues that I find difficult.

>> No.77843139

>>77842100
I've played the actual Sherlock Holmes Investigative game where you're supposed to be a group of the Baker Street Irregulars. We basically failed because the game's success was based on the number of scenes we needed to solve the mystery. And we didn't specify correctly where we were going and often wanted to go to the alley BEHIND the shop the murder took place in and wasted ingame time watching Scotland Yard's investigation play out.

All I can recommend is not to try that approach.

Here is an example of one of those timelines. This is one I used for my last session, the players fought Paul Bunyon and Babe the Blue Ox in Salem Oregon. Miss Anom is a college professor who has a secret love of magic, and she is the party's main source of intel and magic items. For this game I wanted to put her in danger, so I had Paul want to get revenge on her for locking him away from the world for 10 years.

The hunt started with Paul being released and going to murder Miss Anom, but since the party was there helping Miss Anom with an experiment Paul was unable to win the fight. He declared he would murder everyone Miss Anom loved before coming back for her.

From there the party decided to hunt down her family members to defend them. They succeeded in getting her family to a safe location before Paul could even figure out the location of her family members, completely ruining that plan.

The nature in Salem began to twist and mutate in reaction to the storm Paul brought. The players suddenly found it impossible to enter the forests where Paul was presumed to be.

They players sought a fortune teller who told them Paul could only be killed in his sacred grove. The players rightly figured that the more dangerous the forests get, the closer they are to Paul.

They are now planning a raid on Paul's grove. It's going to be an insanely rough trip seeing as the entirety of Silver Falls is going to be out for their blood, but they figure the nastier things get the closer they are too Paul. That was the end of the session.

How do I make goblins a scary threat to base a campaign on, with them still being goblins, as in not a real threat in low numbers but a locust of destrution when in large groups.

I want to avoid them being led by powerful heroes or shamans, because that'd make the high level npc's scary, not the horde.

Mystara has a nice take on it, many of the Immortals have numerous 'aspects' that they have appeared as before other races. Example, ka the Preserver, is naturally an amber skinned allosaur, but before humans he is worshiped as ka'ar a amber hued human while Lizard folk worship an amber costly named Kalakatar. and the mortals worshipping the various aspects IIRC do not really realize they may be worshipping the same actual being, they think Kalakatar and ka'ar are different.

And of course even IF people realized the different aspects are the same, there is also the 'pantheons'. The average person does not just worship one Immortal only, they usually go to a church dedicated to a specific grouping of Immortals and the rules and tenants for the faith are directly tied to that church. So the same aspect of an immortal can be a part of multiple 'pantheons' and the pantheons are where things get far more 'region/race locked'.

Did it according to Xenophanes:
“The Ethiops say that their gods are flat-nosed and black, While the Thracians say that theirs have blue eyes and red hair. Yet if cattle or horses or lions had hands and could draw, And could sculpt like men, then the horses would draw their gods Like horses, and cattle like cattle; and each they would shape Bodies of gods in the likeness, each kind, of their own.”

The setting has a roster of 21 actual Gods, all worshiped by different species and races, with their appearance changing based on cultural depictions n' so forth.

Looks practical. You can stab with the front spike and slash with the side spikes. You can use it as a spear or shorten your grip and use it like a club, or swing from a distance. You can also smack someone with the flat if you're trying to drive them away nonlethally.

Warforged are good with a player who roleplays:
- Don't need to eat/drink/sleep, so they have totally different behaviors (what do they do during meals, do they even have a tent?)
- They could've been only taught things necessary for war, so they might be discovering stuff like how to buy things from shops
- There is no warforged culture, so players get to make it their own moral code and values

"Robot learning about the world" is a classic story line

im not sure why biopunk tends to go with horror so often but i still get it, and why it works well for the most part

question for some food for thought:
>what animals/ mobs/ npc's exist in this bio-dungeon or space ship?
>are they part of the dungeon/ ships consciousness to some extent (such as one might have things connected to an A.I on a more standard sci-fi ship) or are they their own things that just kinda live there?
>who made the ship/ dungeon, is it an animal that grew, some other species built it for there own ends?

>do you combine bio and cyber stuff to get the best of both worlds or do you lean hard into one over the other?

>what do you like / dislike most about the genre and its nitty-gritty details, the organic vibe, the fact its a less common sci-fi, you just think it looks cool?

I do this enough that I'm starting to be 'known' for it just a bit. It's a genre I'm really fond of and I more or less have two or three staples:

>Pre-Made Campaign: swallowed whole by a massive sea beast.
Super simple premise: pc's are the only survivors on a ship that was swallowed whole by an unfathomably massive creature at sea. The creature is so massive in fact that the players have become stranded on one of the 4 tropical islands that rest in the sea of acid within its' stomach. The 'plot' is to basically escape alive.

>Demon Fleshscapes.
In my 'standard' setting: Hell is a meat/fleshscape. Everything is horrible/sensual churning realm of fused & melted sinner's flesh, meat, and connected organs, constantly producing; literal piss & shit bogs, rivers and rain of blood, and all flowering plants just 100% genitals. This normally isn't a problem, but portals to Hell pop up every once in a while and its' 'unique biosphere' is fairly invasive. Dungeons can get 'stone to flesh' rather quickly if they're left alone to go to 'seed' sort to speak.
If you've seen any amount of the Hentai Artist 'Modeseven' work you'll be vaguely familiar with what my Hell is like.

>Broodmothers
A trope I'm fairly guilty of maybe over using, but the idea is at the 'end' of a meat/organic Dungeon they'll usually be some kind of 'Flesh Maiden'. This can either be an Omnibus: which is a kind of Elder Venus of Willendorf Brood Mother Succubus, about as powerful as a Balor, who's man-sized vagina is a literal and metaphorical portal to Hell, and regularly gives birth to further demons & horrors from her mouth, nipples, and penis(eses). The other is the more 'tasteful' but just as unusual: "Lady of The Blood Lake", where at the bottom of the Dungeon there's a brooding spawning pool of primordial stem-cell Evangelion fluid tended to by a kind of Flesh Nymph or Dryad who regularly pull freakish creations from the gore.

Honestly, big, living creature you're inside of is innately creepy I think, but I don't see why it can ONLY be creepy

>>what animals/ mobs/ npc's exist in this bio-dungeon or space ship?
I like symbiotic lifeforms, though that can be a wide range of things

>>are they part of the dungeon/ ships consciousness to some extent (such as one might have things connected to an A.I on a more standard sci-fi ship) or are they their own things that just kinda live there?
Tend to prefer the ship itself is sentient moreso than some part of it is

>>who made the ship/ dungeon, is it an animal that grew, some other species built it for there own ends?
I like the idea it's a created species, or one that modified itself somehow

>>do you combine bio and cyber stuff to get the best of both worlds or do you lean hard into one over the other?
Biomachinery, though I personally prefer if it's just one or the other

I've seen threads in the past saying the best way to get the measure of a potential player is to take them to a bar and see if they drink alcohol with you.

The better idea is to take them to a cafe for breakfast and see what they order, because a man's taste in coffee says a lot about his character.

A "man" who orders anything with milk substitutes or more than one ingredient, especially caramel or cream, is no man, only a homo sexual. A "man" who orders anything other than tea or coffee by name is even worse - an Italian or one sympathetic to European degeneracy. This is America. Speak English, not Italian.

As to food, the true man orders either eggs, with or without bacon and other accoutrements a cowboy may have cooked, or breaks his fast on nothing but a black coffee and unfiltered cigarette.

No man orders cereal, the food of children and deranged quacks like Kellogg, or Hispanic foods like avocado pears.

No, you haven’t. You’ve done an admirable job of explaining that the likelihood of a negative outcome is incredibly low, and I don’t disagree with that in the slightest.
What you’re failing to understand is that the fact that they CAN doesn’t mean that they WILL. They have no real incentive to feel strongly about the Reserve List when they can already milk their customers effectively with non-RL reprints. Without a strong incentive to violate the list, most of what they have to consider is the potential negative outcomes, no matter how unlikely they are.

I build a lot of decks that rely on blue and counters; what deck can I build that doesn’t rely on blue and has a non control game plan?

I have been curious about some group hug type decks but I don’t know enough about them. Either that or just something unique

How do you make your D&D game more grimdark with realistic consequences like Game of Thrones? I'm talking characters getting killed left and right.

This is the most "have you tried not playing D&D" thread I have seen in a long time.

That being said, I don't think it's all about killing characters and increasing realism. It's more about the tone, the lowered amount of humor, more serious quests with no black and white solutions.

Ruleswise yeah, restricting healing and removing ressurection magic is a must I think.

You could keep resurrection if you really wanted (though I personally wouldn't). Just make it difficult to use and require a heavy price - as opposed to simply demanding a precious stone of arbitrarily high value ala D&D / Pathfinder, which is basically just an accounting headache.

Trade places with a loved one in the lands of the dead, or some shit. Sacrifice d6 points from your attributes. Trade your ability to do a certain kind of magic forever as the ferryman's price. You can only come back for a certain time - six months to right all your wrongs, then it's all over, no take-backs. You can return, but only if your worst enemy comes back too. Whatever fits the tone of the setting. Or do Dark Souls - you can come back a few times but eventually your mind snaps and you go mad.

Ironically, Game of Thrones itself did happy no-cost resurrection with Jon, so it's a pretty terrible thing to base your grimdark off.
