Game Finder

Why doesn't /tg/ have game-finders, any more? I want to play games with you stupid nerds--not just jerk off to anime pics of elves.

Also Gamefinder. Tabletop Simulator, Spelljammer based on 2e. I'm ready to go on weekends in UTC -4 (US Eastern).

    Because I don't want to moderate a stagnant discord server that people just lurk in and ignore game offers.

      it does on occasion, but when it gets posted there's usually just one guy posting a game and then a bunch of shitflinging over discord drama drawn out over a hundred posts before the thread dies

      >and then a bunch of shitflinging over discord drama drawn out over a hundred posts before the thread dies

      The issue I have with most text games nowadays everybody wants to use retarded automation and Discord bots which just slow everything down. I can't just make a character sheet and roll my actions.

      >Discord bots which just slow everything down
      I sense a pattern here!

    >Additional Notes
    I'm looking for playtesters for my shitbrew. I am willing to explain the rules in VC but I also have a document. Rules are relatively simple so I can walk you through character creation and explain the rest as we go. The setting is high magic and high tech science-fantasy. It's basically kitchen sink but with no space exploration.

      I don't want to learn a new game, sorry. Do you want to run or play something that we already know?

        You tell the GM what you want to do, and he tells you what you need to roll. That's how proper roleplaying games work, dude. If you can do that you can play pretty much anything that's not a faggy character-building game masquerading as an RPG.

      This looks interesting (at the very least it's something new) but I need time to study this. I also live in SEA so I hope you're a night owl

      NGL I'd appreciate some roll examples. Is tier dice a multiplier or you just add?

      • 2 months ago

        You just add it. This is an example character I made a bit ago. For his magma spike attacks he'd roll 1d4 from his tier + 1d2 from his weapon, the spike itself + 2 bonus damage from the pyromaniac feat. Spikes also deal 3 penetration (PET) so that amount of damage would ignore armor.

        If this same character would to spend AP to dodge that attack as he would roll 2d4, one from his tier and one from his stat. If the dodge rolls equally or higher than the roll for the attack then the damage would be negated.

    I don't want to have to install Discord to listen to stupid American teenagers on voice chat, if games were text only I'd play but the world has moved on.

      Text games were GOAT. There's more time to think about your actions and dialogue. And it can all be neatly saved in a document to quickly search/revisit later. We ran months long epic quests and rebellions on IRC in the 00's.

      But yeah, it's just impossible now. No one has decent reading comprehension anymore and everyone's attention span is shorter than Wil Wheaton's penis. People will try to multitask and play from their phones. Voicoids will apply to join your game and act all surprised/angry it's text-based(again, reading comprehension).

    Thoughts on playing in an ESL GM game and/or with ESL players?

      Same but ESL with no experience and a thick accent? Would people be annoyed?

      People are constantly on here snivelling about how their GM took a sickday or didn't allow some PC race/class. I guess I don't blame GMs for not wanting to provide months of free entertainment for people who aren't going to be remotely grateful.

    Would you really want to be in a game made of randos from Ganker? Complete with piss forests, unbirthing voredemons. historically accurate depictions of racism, sexism, slavery, and peasants daily diet and ebin natty fucking 20 criticals occasionally interrupted by in-depth debate about the most autistic interpretations of the rules possible and absurd loopholes thus created.
    Sounds like a blast.

      A third of these sound interesting and fun. Another third sound like dnd (which i will not play), and the final third sounds like a magical realm to be avoided. All in all, not much more fraught than most groups.

      I tried it.

      uh, a bunch of under-age gay kids with mental problem taking a break from their ERP to dabble in cyberpunk. SR4, with a twist. A couple were into it while 2 were apathetic and downright hostile to the whole concept and genre.
      >Proto-incel Trump-leaning drama queen. He "preferred to type" his speeches to the BBEG. Quit in a huff when his character died.
      >The depressed one who played a depressed character. He "roleplayed" his character and had a minor social misunderstanding escalate to "well I abandon the group and skip town".
      >The authentically chill funny one who played a high-concept character.
      >The socially manipulative toxic one. Left the moment it was clear I wasn't going to buy into said manipulation.
      >The one that was really into it. Which, was cool at first. Loved to go invent his own crazy new weapon or whatever. It dragged on when he had, like, 30 DM questions for me, EVERY WEEK. I started limiting him to 10/week.
      >The quiet one. No voice. Only text. Occasionally insightful. Mostly just followed party.

      I had to remind them I fade to black a couple times. I felt like some exposure to an actual sane adult was good for a lot of them. That toxic one is going to make sure that the whole group remains bat-shit insane. We had some people cycle out and in and the new group was... eh, alright, but it sputtered out.

      Honestly... yeah, it was actually a pretty good time. Some good games. Some stupid drama that you can't care too much about. And a lot of funny moments.

      I'm looking to try out CPR, what with all the recent interest.
      I WANTED to try out GURPS Cyberpunk... but maaaaaan that ruleset... Seriously, every system and hacker has a different turn frequency? How the fuck do you keep track of init without some form of software doing it for you? I think I'd whip out excel or something.
