Dungeons & Dragons
« on: November 12, 2017, 08:11:25 AM »
Played that game for the first time yesterday and had a lot of fun. No one in our party died, we all avoided being put to sleep for 5,000 years, met some all and all, pretty friendly pseudo-Gods, one of whom hooked me up with the perfect potion to hunt down the shape changing cultists that took my girl in some elaborate scheme and I even caught up with one of those fuckers and my giant wolf spider, Quincy, and I fucked it up while my companions dealt with a nigh unkillble were-Jaguar, who unfortunately did pass his curse on to the somewhat deranged, always nude, super ripped, half-orc swamp Warlock who was our “guide”.

I’ve taken on a new nerd form, and it feels so good

My buddy got me into D&D about... Jesus... 5 years ago or so at this point? It really is fun.

We've bounced back-and-forth between 4e and 5e, and I think we're going to transition to 5e full time soon enough (I love a lot about 4e, but combat in 4e can be a fucking chore).

My group is... comically ineffectual, and we tend to rely on our fallback strategy (burn this building/village/city to the ground to cover up our mistakes) far too often.

Currently playing as a Changeling Warlock who, despite being a fucking changeling warlock, is pretty much the most pure-hearted and good member of our group. But we did a brief interlude campaign once (just 4 sessions long) where I played Chaotic Evil as a tiefling barbarian, and that was a fucking blast.

If you even marginally like D&D, do yourself a favor and play Pathfinder.

It's D&D, perfected

My problem with 5e to this point is I can't find character builders that have EVERYTHING in them. That was why I preferred 4e, actually. My 4e character builder let you play as virtually anything. Want to be a Bugbear Psion? You got it. Wilden Swordmage? Knock yourself out! Githyanki Artificer? Do it!

Unless I'm missing out on stuff, 5e seems to just allow the stripped-down basics unless you just house-rules everything.

If you're comfortable with UA material, you're set and they're not underpowered at all. Also the ones in Xanthars are pretty amazing conceptually and could be used with the UA stuff

Anyone with celebrities? Shocking amount are into it. Deborah Ann Woll/Joe Manganiello, The Big Show, Chris Hardwick. And they aren't BS'ing either

God I love how nerds are taking over

I’m really into Critical Role which is shot to be watched but I just listen as a podcast most of the time as I can listen while commuting. Highly recommend if you want a good one and they have a lot of guests including celebs like Manginello, Hardwck and even that guy who played Napoleon Dynamite
