Cannot base characters off The Who's drummer Keith Moon. A one-man band is not an appropriate bard instrument. There is no Gnomish god of heavy artillery. My 7th Sea character Boudreaux is not 'Southern' Montaigne. Not allowed to blow all my skill points on 1-pt professional skills. Synchronized panicking is not a proper battle plan. Not allowed to use psychic powers to do the dishes. 'How to Serve Dragons' is not a cookbook. My monk's lips must be in sync. Just because my character and I can speak German, doesn't mean the GM can. Not allowed to berserk for the hell of it, especially during royal masquerades. Must learn at least one offensive or defensive spell if I'm the sorcerer. Must not murder canon NPCs in their sleep, no matter how cliché they are. Ogres are not kosher. Plan B is not automatically twice as much gunpowder as Plan A. Drow are not good eating. My 3rd ed. Mr.

Instinct: What is your character’s first reaction to a threat (physical or otherwise)? Approach: What archetype is your character best known for being?

Running a Zombie Apocalypse | Roleplaying Tips by Silveressa Recently Mordred asked me: “ I’ve attempted to run a few zombie campaigns of my own in the past, and they’ve all come to nothing. I’m curious as to how much of this campaign you actually write and how much is player driven? Do you simply have a list of encounters that you drop in at an appropriate time, or are you just making it up as you go along? Thanks for asking Mordred, here’s a few of the primary techniques I use to make the campaign a success and not become stressful for me to GM over the long term. Planning and Improvisation With any open ended “sandbox” style game (I.E one where the players are pretty much free to go where they please and do what they wish,) I’ve found it easiest to only plan a short distance ahead and try to react to player choices; rather then overly anticipate their decisions or guide them in any specific direction. Zombies aren’t the only Enemy Much of Survival Horror is Survival Pacing Action and Interaction Drop in Encounters

Enter the Jabberwock - Campfire of the Vanities What happens when teenagers gather (with some odd older woman called “Ms. Frost”) to evilly roll dice and evilly battle imaginary ogres? In this, the first of the Chick Dissections, Jack illustrates his ignorance of RPGs like Dungeons and Dragons much better than he does his comics. Spoooky. The dialog, as anyone who’s ever played an RPG can tell you, is obviously written by someone whose only experience with the game was peeking longingly through a window while quietly sobbing. Anyway, back to the panel, usually the characters have names and you don’t have to address the DM, or “Dungeon Master”, as such for every action you take. “No! Usually you roll a numerous-sided die to determine what happens for different encounters and traps and situations and things. People don’t usually act like this girl does, either. Just about everyone who plays D&D realizes that it’s just a game. Yes, you’ve pretended to be a wizard for so long that now you can actually be one! Oh, cool. Hah! Whuh? Huh.

BrowserQuest The 100 Most Important Things To Know About Your Character (revised) Quote from original Author(Beth):This list came about when, one day while struggling to develop a character for an upcoming Hunter game, my lovely roommate Nikki looked at me and said something like, "Wouldn't it be cool to have a list of questions you could go through and answer while you were making characters, so you'd make sure to consider all sorts of different elements in their personality?" I agreed, and that very evening we sat down over hot chocolate and ramen noodles to whip up a list of 100 appearance-, history-, and personality-related questions (which seemed like a nice even number) to answer as a relatively easy yet still in-depth character building exercise. Later on, we went through the list again, took out the questions that sucked (because there were a lot of them) and replaced them with better ones. What you see before you is the result of that second revision. Just don't email us specifically to tell us how much we suck. - Beth
