I want Spooky setting stuff! Images, ideas you've had, campaigns you've run and played... or just things you like! It doesn't have to be fall for a thread like this!

Discussion need not be limited to WoD or Ravenloft either, any spooky setting or vibe will do, but both are very welcome!

I've run a few horror campaigns that my playerd have said they liked. Happy to share stuff that worked and stuff that didnt with my players but its such a wide genre with wide appeal and tastes, I'm sure plenty of people have positive stories about what works.

>sci-fi Deadspace game. Players are tasked with responding to a rescue call from a lost ship. They end up trapped and have to deal with necromorphs and cultists alike
>80's crime-gone-wrong turned investigation. Players are all seedy characters who were hired to beat up a boxer before a big fight end up trapped in a gym that is being overrun with strange flora and fauna.
>aztec horror adventure. Players are Spanish military tasked with a delicate operation that almost immediately goes wrong. Sepearated from their crewmates in a strange land, they need to survive and escape.

Sci-fi setting was kind of fun since you can have some fun ways to fudge early deaths . One of my players totally fucked up fighting the first enemy in the game and bit into his head for lethal damage. But because these characters are in full suits of goofy scifi armor, it was an easy DM call to say no, your helmet is instead horribly damaged, and you need to get it fixed in the engineering wing asap.

Currently I'm working on getting a campaign done using the A Wizard module, which someone linked in these threads some time ago. Pretty fun ideas in it.

You don't. You just render it inert. A demilich is a lich that has given up most of its physical body because the mortal plane no longer interests it. They are typically just a skull that acts as an anchor point for their skull as they explore the infinite multiverse via astral projection.
This is why Demilichs build powerful and dangerous dungeons like the tomb of horrors: to act as protection for them because it could be decades, even centuries, before they remember to check back in on their physical body and its best not to leave yourself vulnerable.

Destroying the lich's phylactery will set off warning alarms and you'll have a fight on your hands. Destroying the demilich without getting the phylactery first is pointless. Instead, find the lich while they are off doing multiverse shit and put it in a box that blocks astral travel. You have now safely trapped the lich outside of its body and it cannot return so long as it is contained. You'll never have to fight them and it will be years and years before they even notice that they've been blocked from returning. They might not even care that much, honestly, so long as they don't feel like they are in danger of being destroyed.

Most people that actually play that make builds do them as loose outlines and take notes on stuff that needs to be discussed with a prospective GM.

But the vast majority of buildfaggotry are by nogame autists with too much time on their hands, engaging in white-room theorycrafting. The overwhelmingly cast majority of games do not reach even level 15, and long-term open campaigns can on for years without getting to it.

How do you put puzzles in an environment that's supposed to be in the wild and far from civilization? It (kinda) makes sense to have puzzles in a dungeon built by someone, with statues and riddle engravings and whatnot, but can it also be done in, say, the middle of the forest or deep in a natural cave?
I'm trying to design a gem-themed cavern dungeon and while I can easily place various crystal-themed monsters, I have no idea on how to put puzzles in there.

You can have natural barriers. Multiple solutions to solve - for example, when trying to cross a ravine, you could jump (high risk, but simplest option if your skill is high enough), push over a dead tree on the cliff to make a bridge, or use the items in your inventory (an actual reason to bring a grappling hook and extra rope).

The reward for passing and not just walking all the way around is that you might get somewhere significantly faster (beating a competitor that wants to get to the same destination), you're able to loop around a camp and get the drop on them (element of surprise ambush bonus sort of deal), or maybe you find an alternate entrance to a dungeon that bypasses traps at the normal entrance.

Reflect scale by making all attacks area attacks. Giants fail because they overheat and haven't the numbers to reliably switch out with fresh reserves, that and their society is fragile due to reliance on human slaves better adapted to living in the human scaled world.

Assuming they're not all lumbering idiots and they have the tools (magic) available to them, a giant society should be able to come up with ways to circumvent issues like overheating. Maybe their clothes, armour or bodies have runic symbols that keep them cool, or they're reliant on a specific brew, the ingredients to which are a carefully guarded resource, that keeps them from falling for all downsides of being realistically "giant." Hell, maybe they're the sons of gods or whatever your players will buy and they just work (TM).
Also why assume that giants would see the world as anything other than giant scale?
They want iron? Dig a pit mine?
Need a castle? Tear down a mountain and say goodbye to worrying about hitting your head on the ceiling.

Farming regular crops is still better achieved by human slaves and pit mines can ruin otherwise valuable agricultural land which giants need to boost their population. Levelling mountains is still a smart play though even if magic implies air support is a thing which can get over the walls.

You often see fantasy settings with some big old "evil empire where the vast majority of the population is enslaved or otherwise in brutal and tyrannical conditions."

But how frequently do you see a fantasy setting wherein such an "evil empire" has already been toppled, and every citizen has been emancipated, at the cost of an immense upheaval of social order, and the new regime struggling to contain the chaos of mass unemployment? I can think of, say, Tyr from the 4e version of Dark Sun, but even that gives only lip service to the idea that the society's entire paradigm has disintegrated overnight.

Do you think that dropping PCs into such a post-emancipation "evil empire," and having them troubleshoot the sheer bedlam, would make for an interesting adventure arc?

For an upcoming game, I was thinking of going all the way with this and playing up the fantasy elements. I am thinking of an empire that, for entire centuries, bound the vast majority of its population into hiveminds to strip away all individuality and maximize productivity in the workforce. After years of struggle, a lesser god (demigod?) of freedom and this god's divine champions managed to overthrew the telepathic rulers of this vast empire, but now they are at a loss on how to deal with the populace; free will is a foreign thought to the citizens, and they already miss the unity and clarity of purpose offered by being tightly bound inside a psychic collective. How do champions of freedom restore order while respecting freedom?

It sounds like there will be a plethora of successor states popping up in an attempt to fill the void. A mix of opportunists and genuine philanthropists endeavoring to create new collectives (psychic or otherwise).
To properly champion freedom in this situation is to cleave tightly to freedom of association. There's nothing inherently wrong with being a part of a collective (after all the god and his companions are themselves together a collective) but it IS wrong to compel people to join against their wills.
So the best next step is to establish a network of communities that can all agree to a mutual non-aggression pact, and to establish protocol for individuals who wish to leave, join, or start new communities. It would also be imperative to establish a class of individuals who are sovereign unto themselves, either as nomads or yeoman farmers. The rugged individualists will serve as a counterweight to centralizing tendencies of the new communities.
tl;dr become druids (in the historical sense) and groom the various tribes into believing that they're all of one nation

All social engineering is fundamentally condescending, because it hinges tricking people into conforming to the whims of a secretive group of kingmakers.
But without it, you'll see a succession of strongmen and brutes seizing power, until one of them is successful in his own social engineering campaign that allows him to establish his own evil empire.

stormtroopers are more akin to U.S. marines. the reason they feature so heavily in the movies, is because the heroes are not raiding locals guarded by the army, but hitting locations that have marines on hand recall that the president is guarded by marines, not army or navy or air force. there is a bit of ceremonial distinction and prestige attached to the marines over the other branches. all the imperial army that is seen is armor division, guys driving walkers and shit. the army is used to garrison rather than invade. and army garrisons always include stormtrooper legions for active combat operations and ceremonial/publicity duties.

RPG and tabletop game makers keep falling to politics when journalists accuse them of political bullshit. They can do this because they have an opening to inject their politics from women making up only a small part of the traditional games sphere. There are too few women as those that try get fucked by the defenses against tiddy streamers and their ilk. But tiddy streamers can only exist because of simps paying them. And simps paying them gets money that could have gone to more games allowing them to flourish better.

Therefore, the tiddy streamer and women are not your enemy. It is the simp that enables the former and allows politics to come in because of the latter.

Do your part to protect your hobby.

For raw speed, yes, but plantigrade offers greater stability and pedal dexterity. The latter isn't very relevant, certainly not as compared to our dextrous-footed arboreal primate ancestors, but the former is pretty essential for our locomotion as upright bipeds. It's not biomechanically sensible for a humanoid not to have plantigrade feet -- even with other features like a tail that might assist in balance, the creature's stance would probably be very unstable and prone to tripping or falling when in motion. Of course, minotaurs and other hybrid monsters don't need to make much biological sense in the first place, so I guess the question of what their anatomy is "supposed" to be like is generally pointless regardless.

>> No.77912621

>>77912233
Hmmm. Interesting point on the stability. Yeah, I like that, in a fighting stance sense and for ranged weapons, plantigrades are the way to go. There aren't a lot of bipedal animals really... primates (essentially), and birds have a number. Kangaroos are bit of a unique one. Bears less than primates but their hips make them far better as quadrupeds. Kangaroos and boxing, yo. think about it.

If you think of a "bull rush", that's a really stable attack... well, not really. People wrestle charging bulls (? a small heifer) to the ground, I think at rodeos. I guess the danger in a bull rush is the force/weight behind the attack.

>generally pointless regardless
It certainly is, but it's fun to think of the little things.

The Gale Force 9 version of Dune is the only version that matters now unless you already own the old one. They're the same game except GF9 Dune is slightly updated based on how Dune's tournament scene evolved over time (with most of GF9's changes matching the tournament scene -- and some, like their ornithopter ruling, openly defying it).

Keep in mind that Dune: Imperium is a completely different game and is absolutely not what I'm talking about.

I have one character in my campaign who literally can't roll above a 5. Checking out DnD beyond logs for the past 4 sessions, here are her rolls

Not including ability mods, it's
1, 6, 1, 2, 2, 8, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 17, 12, 18, 12, 3, 1, 7, 7, 3, 9, 4, 5, 20, 2, 9, 4.. and I'm too lazy to keep looking. But like for the rest of the session, it's an abnormal amount of 1s and under 10s.

Post maps! Either maps you've drawn, used, or that you just really like. I sketched up this one for a game I'm running. There are more cities and such on it, but those are handled on Roll20 to make revealing, moving, and editing easier.

Well, it's city that grew a lot over time. That island in particular is actually the original territory of Hong Kong; it was basically a nothing little islet that we nicked from the Chinese so that we could trade somewhere that wasn't subject to their laws. And then, because they weren't happy about that and tried to push the issue, we pushed back- all the way onto a little bit of the mainland. There was no city at the time; that grew up around the constraints of the territory. Here's the map i used as a referrence, for... well, for referrence.

There's three factions involved in the Dark Angels. The Inner Circle, who are Luther's traitors that seized control over the legion after Lion's fleet was wiped out by the death of Caliban. The Fallen are the Marines that fought alongside the Lion during the Horus Heresy and returned with Lion to Caliban. They were cast through time and space by the warp-powered death of Caliban. The Fallen are themselves two factions: Cypher's loyalists, and those who fell to Chaos after Caliban. The Inner Circle has, over 10,000 years of cryptic deceit, forgotten the truth of it's own creation.

When you see the truth one thing is evident: Cypher's problem is fake friends.

During Luther's Rebellion, each side thought they were the Loyalists, The Lion's fleet was attacked because Luther lied about it, saying that they had turned to Chaos. Remember that the recruits of Caliban had never even met the Lion. So both sides thinking the other is evil fight, Luther is defeated & the Lion is fridged. The time warp also males things more chaotic. So both factions walk away leaderless & thinking they are the real Loyalists, the Fallen & the Unforgiven. Cypher is Alpharius who has been in deep cover as a Fallen & then during the time warp also joined the Unforgiven. He has walked both paths & as such is the only one who knows the truth.
