Thread for TTRPG discussion and organization.

# What is a TTRPG?
TTRPG, sometimes TRPG, stands for TableTop Role-Playing Game. It includes big names, like D&D, and much less heard of ones, like Song of Swords. The rule systems run from extremely thorough, with rules for things like how many Thai chilli peppers you can eat before getting ill, to so broad as to be nearly nonexistent, with only basic guidelines on how to play. In almost all systems, the key component that sets it apart from video game RPGs is the presence of the Dungeon Master, Game Master, Referee, etc. They help to adjudicate edge cases not covered by rules and create exceptions to the rules in favour of fun, meaning a TRPG has much more freedom of action than a normal RPG.

# Where do I play?
Generally, TTRPGs, especially niche ones without large player bases, are played in-person, but there are also sites and apps that allow you to play over the internet and find groups. The biggest one right now is probably roll20; signing up is free, and as a player, you never need to pay for anything. Other applications include FoundryVTT (paid for by a GM), Maptools (free), AstralVTT (free), and Fantasy Grounds (expensive, but very nice). Some groups even play on Tabletop Simulator, which has the added bonus of letting you play poker or Life before a session starts or if someone flakes.

There's also the potential to show up at a gaming store; if you live in the US, Canada, or Europe, there's plenty of those around too. Gaming stores are in-person, obviously, but they also often boast long-time, highly experienced and confident game masters who are knowledgable at how to best cater to newbies trying to enter the hobby. There are many websites online to help you find game stores near you.

# Where do you get the rulebooks?
You can buy them from places like drivethrurpg, or you can pirate them from https://thetrove.net/. As a new player, you often don't need very many books; both Shadowrun and Pathfinder have relatively complete wikis online with all the setting-agnostic information you need, and Pathfinder even has a setting wiki so there's no reason to buy the books for their content.

Servers are totally fucked
If you're interested you can attempt to log on at the normal time but if you can't that means the server is constantly crashing and unfixable
Was just on voice with the server admin, the new software update is bugged af
Maybe it will be hotfixed


I'll try to make it, but my internet's pretty shoddy and I might have to leave early.


Any updates on this?
Bummer but I'll show up regardless. Hope we can make something work soon


I reverted to an old version
It will still be buggy and we're likely to lose any chatlogs we've created, but I'll save it and upload it to discord for reference.
It's my birthday this weekend so I didn't have too much time to troubleshoot but from what I can tell it's entirely serverside, nothing to do with my configuration or file integrity.


AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA my fucking shit ass phone died while I slept and my alarm never went off
I hope you guys were able to get everything working for next time at the very least, really sorry

We don't have an official steam or discord group. If anyone posts in the thread about any "official" or not steam or discord groups, promising MP or not, be sure it's a shitposter group known for organizing raids and shitposting in the thread. They are known for false-flagging.

How fares your empire, /gsg/?

For the love of god do NOT play Stellaris


Weirdly enough I only go to 4chan for /vg/ to get torrents and download links so to see this thread here is pretty suprising. But anyways whats with the fakey general image being posted around lately, is someone trying to shill their mod and decided to post it here because they got banned or are people legitmately trying to discuss grandstrat games here?


>EU4 is agreed to be the old flagship
>EU4 is old now
How time flies.
I remember back when it launched I would play as England and lose against France no matter what I did.
It makes me sad when you get to know a game quite well, but doing so takes the magic away a little.

Jp devs are starting to realize good netcode is necessary at least. The recent growth of +R aside, the pandemic made them acknowledge how big a role the overseas market contributes to their success.

It's about time…


Not video game tournaments but I used to play in Magic the Gathering tournaments. Legacy and Modern specifically. Never anything huge or high profile, but I made some money on a few occasions even. I kinda miss it but I've been distant from the game for years now.

Hey sushirolls. What are some of the comfiest games you've ever played?

I recently just finished playing Va-11 Hall-A for the first time. It's not really a game by everybody's standards but it was really comfy and a great experience overall.

I'd totally recommend it to anybody with a rainy night, some tea, and time to waste.

Do you play browser games?
> MMO games, usually in real time (even when logged off), played in with your internet browser
and kinda addictive. I personally like strategy and economy games like Ogame a lot. If you spend several hours a day online anyways, these are a nice distraction, creating the illusion of being productive all the time. For example you start an upgrade in the evening and wake up just in time to begin the next one.

The positive aspect about it might be the adaption of a structured waking time, quite useful for slack folks like me.

Often you can find tools online for various simulations, converters or game play enhancements, but of course writing your own handy scripts is neat and with economy heavy games, even offering APIs, it is also inviting.

I've played a good amount of pokemonshowdown. Competitive pokemon is very different from the games themselves.


Ah man I played a lot of Gen 4 and 5 competitive. I think it was on Shoddy battle or Pokemon Online back then though. Fun stuff. I still watch matches on occasion. The new meta is too much for me though, I only bared played SwSh and skipped SM totally, so my knowledge is lacking


Same, I used shoddy and pokemon online a lot as a teenager. I was so bad but damn did I have fun. People still play old gens on pokemon showdown so if you're in the mood it isn't hard to find games.

Are you on team Steam, or are you a local copy kind of person?

I'm on both sides of the fence, but I find myself leaning towards the latter lately.

No matter how much money Valve makes, I still feel like they'll go the way of AOL and Myspace one day.

Or perhaps not.. Steam has been around in some form for over 10 years, an eternity in the software world. Users still enjoy frequent sales, access to the latest titles, and the vibrant social networking. Steam makes it easier for people to organize multiplayer games, and lets friends with like minded tastes stay in touch.

And you can't understate the growing popularity of esports, where Counter Strike and DOTA hold prestigious positions, both requiring Steam in order to play.

There are many other features I could go into with VR, automatic updates, good support for GNU/Linux(Gabe Newell uses Debian iirc), ect..

The bottom line: Steam is convenient, easy, and rules the market.

So I'm wondering, what makes it so desirable to leave the Steam client behind? My first argument was that your local games will always be yours so long as you maintain the data. Meaning you just need to avoid having the games deleted, and if your storage drive fails, have backups of your games.

CDs/DVDs with art have always been really cool, if I have to opportunity to buy an album or game in physical form, I normally will instead of pirating it or buying online.


I haven't bought a boxed game in years, though that's more because I don't play on consoles anymore. Last game I bought was Smash Bros. almost 3 years ago, and even then I haven't spent that much time playing the games I've got, preferring to emulate old arcade games or just older PC games on my toaster. I used to be sceptical about downloading games but now I just don't care. Hell, I've even bought a couple of games on Steam already (admitedly only because they weren't on GOG). I've been thinking of collecting older consoles, but then I see a good deal of the games are getting ported to Steam anyway and if they aren't I can emulate a good deal of them already, so I really don't know if it's the box or actually playing the games that I want. And most of the current gen games I'd want to play are getting Steam releases anyways, so I feel less incentive to get back to consoles and physical copies.


I already have over a thousand dollars worth of games on Steam, so I'm inclined to stay with it. But I don't like that I don't really own my games, Steam could potentially ban me for whatever reason and remove access to my games at any point. Or maybe they suddenly go down and I can't download the games I paid for.

Just remember to back-up your games occasionally.


It's honestly less about any sort of moral values I might have about Steam and more about the fact that buying physical copies of things is not actually practical or even possible most of the time these days.

I don't know about you, but I don't actually have any gamestops near me. Plenty of indie games, or games from smaller companies just clean up do not release their games on disc.

Obviously I can pirate games and then keep a local copy, and I do do that, but on some level I feel like that's missing the point.

strings and const chars, static memory address spaces and other things i don't really understand, but i know are at least tangentially related.

?? Fan translations have always been a thing for video games.


Only for games that haven't been officially translated.
Games with official translations never get any of that.

"Turnip boy commits tax evasion"; fun game, but is really dragged down by the writing. It's basically a zelda clone, so if your into that you can have a good bang for your buck that lats 3-4 hours.

As I mentioned the writing is a mess. Its main weak point is that it will reference memes, just to reference memes. For no reason out of the blue a character will recite the "You talking to me kid?" copypasta. One of the characters is a twitch streamer for no other reason to reference it. A side character cherry is only a reference to that once JJBA scene and adds nothing to the game. A lot of internet lingo only teenagers find funny is also thrown around. This might sound amusing now, but when the game is interrupted by these jarring tone shifts you start to get irritated.

It's doesn't give off out of touch corporate vibes, as the creators obviously understand the jokes, but more as "kid who replaced his personality with internet because he spends to much time on it". I knew a guy like that and this game just reminds me to much of him. I think that's my main problem with the writing

>Do you wanna be friends and play games with me?
Sure, you can add me on steam with this ID: 76561198134864878, time zones may provide a challenge for playing games, but I'll try to.


It's not time zones that's the problem, it's always ping. It's just no fun to play any action-y realtime game (even with friends) when I have 300ms, 400ms ping, sometimes even more.
Even pure co-op games, unless there's very strong client-side compensation, it's still unplayable.

I'm sorry, I was really just venting. When you listed Darkest Hour, i thought of RO2/RS and how there's only really euro servers and maybe a US east coast server that's still even slightly alive - I imagine very similar for DH. When you listed arma/opflash, I thought of my old friends when we tried to play arma 3 together, but it just never worked out. I think of my trouble playing killing floor 2 with my friends, and how much trouble i caused them because of my ping. I think of newer games too, tarkov, and apex, and siege, and that BR COD. I don't care if they're shit games or not, I just want to play with someone. I think of all the games that I'd love to play with friends, but I have no friends to share with.

And it hurts.

I know these are all FPS but they're obviously the ones i have the most trouble with. I'm sorry for whining.

That's a shame :(
Is it really that bad? I play on Chinese/Korean/Australian servers quite often and my ping jumps between 100-150ms, maybe I'm just not competitive enough to notice, or maybe it's worse when connecting from Asia to EU.


File: 1618839497921.png (191.56 KB, 586x876, b7c43e3b8e01a00414c72354f2….png)

Worms is pretty good if you have terrible ping to the other players, due to it being turn-based. Worms Armageddon is still the most active game in the series too, and still receives updates despite being from '99.


>Dwarf fortress
are some that i found on my distros repositories that are nice
Also Daggerfall is free from bethesda's website iirc You can try to play that with Dosbox.
