So we have this Bleach freeform game that has been going on for years. Was starting to drag its feet, so I decided to bring it to a conclusion come Hell or high water.

At one point two players started monkeying around with the game's consistency and power levels, to a point that one of the characters went on a teenage power fantasy to Hell just to prove that they could, and since I was more or less left as an authoritative figure, I warned said player that any further attempts to muck things up would be met by Deus Ex Machina. Said player decided to "retcon my godmodding", so I just godmodded harder, and it's gotten to a point where I might have to get actual forum mods involved.

And therein lies the problem. The game is hosted at giantitp.

This stupid game would not even still be running if it weren't for me. The player in question will not listen in any way. So how do I deal with this? I can't exactly delete the player's posts, otherwise I'd be fine.

Off Topic Fun / I need song help!

So as I'm sure some of you are plenty aware, I actually LARP somewhat regularly and boffering LARP is totally a thing.

This is my bard.

Viewer discretion is advised, I will not pay for your therapy.

Now that you've basked in the glory of Grape Juice Samurai, this is my actual request.

Being a samurai - as in a character that evokes Japanese easily - I do, naturally, end up singing in Japanese when I play him. Which was actually received pretty well! People loved to fight with a musical accompaniment, and I love to kick ass and sing at the same time.

Problem is: a large variety of my repertoire is on the modern side. And much of it is... fairly recognizable. I need songs that:

1) Are in Japanese
2) Sound closer to what you'd expect medieval or traditional Japanese songs to sound
3) Are not too well-known so people cannot instantly link it to popular anime or whatever.

Any help you guys could offer would be greatly appreciated.

(Songs on the older side - 70's and 80's - are pretty good too.)

Off Topic Fun / So a Brazillian prez candidate was stabbed yesterday
« on: September 07, 2018, 02:09:36 PM »
For those of you likely not keeping track, here's the skinny.

Brazil has basically been under the same administration for almost a decade and a half, and while knee deep in shit creek without a paddle, someone thought it would be best to go snorkeling instead. Our latest president was impeached (making it the second impeachment we had in a little under three decades), her predecessor was found guilty in a bunch of administrative malpractice suits (and his party is insisting on putting him up as a candidate for this year's election - straight from jail). There are no big names running (before anyone asks, no, I wasn't allowed to campaign).

So in comes this guy, has been the center of attention from everyone in the last year and a half or so. Says he's going to make it easier for everyone to get a gun, promises to crack down on crime hard. Dude is former military (we had a military dictatorship period from 1964-1985 or so), claims that the best place for any criminal is six feet under. He has a big mouth on him, sure - lots of people draw parallels between him and Trump, mostly on account of their speeches being so inflammatory (he doesn't care for gays, women or what he calls "the left wing's agenda"). Guy's name is Bolsonaro.

He was stabbed yesterday, allegedly by some left-wing conspiracy theorist nut. There is still a debate going on over how much of that is true since video clips at the moment of the attack show no immediate blood loss (though ME reports say he's lost a shitton of blood internally, plus had his guts lacerated in like three different spots and will have to shit through a bag for a month or so).

Figured I'd post something about it, ask you guys what you think or what you've heard about it if anything.

D&D 3.5 and Pathfinder / Help with a Thematic build: Necrobard (3.5)
« on: January 23, 2018, 06:28:37 PM »
The premise is simple. I want a bard that can raise the dead, especially badass skeletons if at all possible.

Of course, 'bard' here is a bit of a loose term. The bard class is notoriously lacking in abilities such as turn undead to actually control undead. I suspect even taking Sublime Chord and Spelldancer cheese this might be a tricky thing to do.

I recall a class called the Dirgesinger that seemed basically to be a sadboi skeleton-buffing bard, but I can't remember what exactly it did or if it was any good.

Off Topic Fun / Anime and series recommendation thread!
« on: September 14, 2017, 02:59:26 PM »
Hey guys!

So it turns out I have like 1-2 hours of free time before and after uni every day on my way there, and I've been using that time to get caught up on anime and series and stuff.

Thing is, I'm burning through all that pretty damn quick - I've almost run out of tokusatsu to watch, same with anime I'm actually interested in. So I'm looking for recommendations! Any suggestions?

Min/Max 3.x / Trampling PrC requisites?
« on: August 13, 2017, 06:51:42 PM »
So a question came by the other day about triple threats (level 9 divine and arcane spells and level 9 powers). I knew there were ways to do this, so one quick google search later I found a few builds that should, in theory, let me get there. As I thought, it was all about squeezing in as many theurge-like classes into as little space as possible.

But one thing caught my curiosity. There were mentions of entering Sublime Chord with a single bard level and as soon as level 3 or 4, but aside from the spells, the prereqs for SC state 10 ranks in Perform along with other skills. How is it possible to bypass the skill caps like that? Were those simply overlooked? The typical cheese for going over the casting prereqs is well-known (Sanctum Spell, Versatile Spellcaster + Heighten Spell, etc.), but this one seems a bit more esoteric.

Hey guys!

Here's the skinny. there's going to be a LARPing camp in about 20 days and I still don't have my full costume set. One thing I'm particularly stuck on: shoes.

I can't find boots my size because my calves are too big. So I basically need medieval sneakers. Unfortunately there's basically no such thing.

I would appreciate any reference you guys can give me about shoes that look right for the part and are still fairly comfortable.

...I can tell for sure. Kylo Ren missed Han's vitals.

If Han doesn't come back in the next couple of films, it'll be because they couldn't afford Harrison Ford.

Because the last one hit 50 pages again.

Geez, we sure have a lot of problems.

The idea is simple: pick a D&D class. Apply to the person above you. Feel free to expound on why, as long as you keep it civil.

Multiclass combos are allowed. Since I'm starting the thread, I'll name the class of whoever posts next.  :P

EDIT: And we open up with Solo, obviously going dashing Rogue.

And light novels, visual novels, whatever.

Because the last one reached 50 pages and I wanted to name the new thread.

So, I'm still watching 80's anime. Particularly City Hunter. I get chills whenever Footsteps in the Night starts playing.  :p

Because the last one hit 50 pages.

The ride back to Castlevania remains without further incident.

You are all disembarked directly at the Throne Room, and the coachswain declines offering his Lord a courtesy before departing - for literal fear of losing his head in the process. The carriage vanishes into thin smoke.

Death and Dracula await. The Lord of Darkness, himself, seems to be lazily awaiting in his throne; he wears heavy greaves with a pair of spiked spurs, as if he's been outside until recently. A bound and gagged succubus is serving as an ottoman, and the spurs dig deeply into her flesh every now and then. She suppresses her writhing, but the way her eyes roll back and she bites tightly into the gag clearly indicate this is not meant to be punishment.

Neither of them says anything. Common knowledge dictates you address them before you are spoken to.

You know what to do.
