[Pathfinder] Goblins! / Behaving Like Goblins - IC
« on: August 25, 2019, 09:23:49 PM »
You are goblins of the Licktoad Tribe. Or at least you will be someday. For now, though, you’re whelps—ravenous, amoral, grumpy goblin children who learned to stop eating rocks only a few months ago. But with every day that passes, your whelping cage seems smaller and smaller. The outside world increasingly beckons to your goblin curiosity (and appetite), but the hateful cage bars holds you at bay.

A few other whelps flourish in the cage, even as the smaller and weaker ones are thinned out. Kettlehead stands literally head and shoulders above the competition, being a goblin of impeccable flatulence and having already fashioned himself an impressive hat from a teapot left lying too close to the cages. Even adult goblins—legendary Chief Rendwattle Gutwad among them—have taken note of Kettlehead and his advanced skills of poking the rest of you with sticks and delivering bruise-inducing noogies.

But today is special. Today, instead of a bucket of fish heads, whelp-wrangler Loptop brought a key and unlocked the door to your cage, spilling you sorry lot into the world for the first time. Other Licktoads gather around, eyeballing you and chewing on the fish heads that should have been yours. “You all are too big for cages,” Loptop snorts. “But you’re not Licktoads yet. Licktoads gotta be useful. Licktoads gotta be tough! Licktoads gotta earn their places in the tribe. And that’s what you’re gonna do now! Show us where you belong, even if that ends being the boneyard!”

Loptop lines all of you up with the other whelps, but excuses Kettlehead for his obvious superiority.  After a few awkward moments, she continues.  "You will do challenges!  First challenge, Animal Fiendship!"  The gathered adult goblins form a circle around you and one brings out a cage full of head-sized scarlet spiders.  Loptop then challenges each whelp to tie a leash to a spider.

[Pathfinder] Goblins! / Goblin Talk - OOC

Okay, we've got a board.

There are five goblin adventures. Do you all want a one and done or to go through them all?

Board Business / Stepped Down as Mod
« on: February 04, 2019, 09:27:49 AM »
All technical issues of the board have been resolved and everything that could be easily done in the input request thread has been done.

I have now stepped down as a mod and am a normal board member again.

Play By Post / Goblins
« on: January 22, 2019, 06:52:42 PM »
I am thinking of rinning a short silly level 1 adventure (that could be continued with more short silly adventures) where everyone is a goblin.

This is the adventure.

The system would be Pathfinder, the adventure is designed for pre-made characters so I would let everyone make their own but sources would be limited (otherwise you'd all just steamroll anything). I think we'll just stick with premades unless that's a big deal.

Would anyone be interested?

More information is available upon request of course.

Board Business / Community Input Requested
« on: January 21, 2019, 08:49:06 PM »
Okay, so as we all know I've been around forever and I'm a mod now.  I've been fixing a bunch of technical issues (and I found one that looks like it can't be fixed without migrating the forum again so I'm just leaving that one alone).

As part of my forum support duties, I'm branching beyond tech support and have two questions for all of you.  I don't care how long you've been here or how many/few times you've posted, I am welcoming all input.

Question 1: Is there any functionality that people would like added or changed?  This could be something big or small, as an example the Dice Roller and Bookmarks are features that were added to the forum. 

Question 2: Is there anything that we can do to stop forum activity from being so low?  Should the Mods mod more (it would be hard to mod less)?  Should I hack into GitP and forward all of their traffic over here?  (I can't actually do that.)  Should we just give up because nobody wants to talk on a message board anymore?  Logins aren't super low compared to what I remember historically but people just aren't posting like they used to.

Board Business / Technical Issues Resolved
« on: January 06, 2019, 06:53:56 PM »
Okay, the issue of posts having eaten text and weird question mark symbols in them should now be resolved.

Are there any other technical issues that boards have had that anyone wants me to look into?

Board Business / Behold your new Mod
« on: December 24, 2018, 01:25:25 PM »
Hi everyone, I am now a mod.  Surprise!

Specifically I'm going to try to fix all of the technical issues that we've been having lately.  Whether or not I'm going to be pulled in for actual mod duties is up to the other mods.

Hopefully I'll get things sorted out relatively quickly.

Board Business / Easy Table Coding
« on: August 02, 2018, 05:31:13 PM »
I just discovered something and want to share it with all of you.

If you're like me, coding tables from scratch is a pain (especially ones with lots of columns).

However I have found a website that accepts table data from Excel (or any other spreadsheet program) and converts it into a basic bbcode table that you can then adjust (adding colors or lines or whatnot).  It can also output code for html tables as well as for putting into a wiki.

Homebrew and House Rules (D&D) / Homebrew Reviewing and General Help
« on: April 02, 2018, 12:10:59 AM »
If you're looking for a homebrew reviewer, look no further for I am the Homebrew Connoisseur.  I am here to make all of your homebrew review dreams come true! *Will not actually make dreams come true.

As you might (or might not) already know, I have been titled the Homebrew Connoisseur (as well as the board's official Discord channel).  I've been reviewing homebrew for....a long time.  I like to think that I've gotten pretty good at it (and other people seem to agree since I've got this nifty title now). 

If you want me to look at something, let me know.  I also have a tendency to remember things that I read and have become something of a homebrew encyclopedia.  I don't know everything that is in the homebrew compendium, but I probably know some things that aren't in there.  If there's something specific that you're looking for let me know, maybe I can help you find some homebrew that can help you out.

Feel free to post here, or you can send me a PM.  If it is something small I'll try to get to it quickly.  Larger projects will go into my to-do list which is in my "Notes to Self" thread mentioned in my signature and I'll try to get to them as soon as convenient.  General questions/posts will get responded to as soon as I have an actual answer for you.

Like other helpful threads that I post, I'm starting this but it isn't just for me.  If someone posts something and you have an answer, tell it.  If someone asks for reviews and you want to review it, do so.  I can't do everything (despite what some people might thing  :p).

In addition, the different homebrew compendium threads lost their stickies as part of the reorganization of this sub-board.  They might not be updated anymore, but I still think that they might be helpful to others so I have linked to them below.

Board Business / Initial Posting Requirements
« on: January 17, 2018, 12:27:28 AM »
The restrictions on new people posting have been removed, people no longer have to introduce themselves to gain access to post on the rest of the board.

Was this intentional?

Board Business / PbP Game Master group
« on: December 27, 2017, 12:20:18 AM »
So, this exists as a user membership group and I just discovered it.

Is it used for anything?  I ask as someone who is running a PbP game.

Board Business / Discord Issues
« on: November 17, 2017, 06:02:00 PM »
I can't post to the Discord, any time I try I get a bot response saying that "sending messages to this channel has been temporarily disabled. Try again in a bit."

Anyone else having issues or is it just my phone?

[D&D 5E] Coastal Troubles / Coastal Troubles (IC Thread)
« on: November 14, 2017, 02:03:35 PM »
Together or individually, you all are answering a call for help.  The high priest of Kelemvor, Doomguide Yovir Glandon, of the city of Phlan has requested able bodied adventurers to look into attacks on small coastal communities in the area.

Magiries, the request for aid came to you directly.  Given your history with Enar you invited her along, two holy warriors being better than one after all.  The rest of you were called in more general ways, but the feeling you got was that this isn't a trumpet call for any and all to answer.  This call is more targeted, it seems that Doomguide Glandon doesn't want to incite panic.

You've made your way to Phlan on the passenger ship Paulina, and any who have mingled with the crew have heard rumors that the attacks have been from a pirate ship.  There are even quieter rumors among the passengers that it is some sort of "ghost ship", but the crew refuses to discuss the subject out of superstition.  If there is some sort of ghost pirate ship out there, they don't want to tempt fate by discussing it.

Paulina has just tied up at the dock and disembarkation has begun.  You know that Doomguide Glandon can be found at Valhingen Graveyard and that he wants to discuss with you in person just what his concerns are.

Dice rolls go here.

[D&D 5E] Coastal Troubles / Character Sheets
« on: November 14, 2017, 10:25:30 AM »
If anyone is interested, I do have a 5E character sheet post template that can be found in my signature (or in the Character Sheet Templates thread).  Using it makes me happy but does not earn you brownie points.

SorO's sheet makes me happy too.

Character Creation Rules

Stats are standard point buy (27 points), which can buy you the array if you want the array.

All core options are allowed (although if you're going after a combo or something please tell me, my experience with 5e is minimal and I'm going to get angry if I find out that someone took advantage of me).  Anything outside of core is allowed on a case by case basis.

Everyone is level 1.  High op is not required, we're playing a premade adventure.

Allowed non-core material:
 - Hexblade
 - All racial feats from Xanathar's

If there's anything you'd like a ruling on just let me know.

Play By Post / What should I run?
« on: November 03, 2017, 03:42:23 PM »
I'm going to run a game.  If you'd be interested in having me as a DM (warning, I'm a little rusty on the DM side of things), please look through this thread and vote on what you'd like me to run.

Current voting:

5th: Archon, oslecamo, Versatility_Nut, Strat
PF: Raineh, Archon, linklord, SorO

Original Post:

I was looking through all of my rpg books last night and it made me tempted to run something (I have a lot of things).  After all, it's been years, and the last time I was a DM I co-DM'd with Strat so it wasn't actually my game.

If I was to run a game, would you want to play?

If you would want to play, would you want 3.5/Pathfinder or something less common? 

I've got some other things I'd be tempted to run from Savage Worlds games to other more obscure stuff.  Book availability isn't an issue, I'm happy to help people out.  I also have Big Motherfuckin' Crab Truckers which is as wonderful as it sounds and the rules system is literally a page if silly one-shots are more your style.


D&D 3.5 and Pathfinder / Spheres of Might
« on: October 14, 2017, 01:36:55 PM »
Anyone else have this book yet?  I'm honestly impressed, I like it more than Spheres of Power and it feels like a system that actually gives martials fun toys without giving them game-breaking abilities.
