Has anyone ever seen RPG social rules that do a good job of modeling two characters trying to work out a disagreement but failing? It's not social combat. My suspicion is that some PBTA game might come close.
Running some mid-level D&D, curious for others' ideas. Show more
Premise: Dragons are fugitives from some much more powerful horror, taking refuge on this plane.
The twist: Now that horror has found them, and will destroy everything to get at them.
Questions: Why must it act through catspaws and servitors? What catspaws & servitors would be interesting? What can a band of mid-level D&D heroes do to stop it?
I have some answers, but I'm curious about your brainstorming...
TFW I'm about to post something that might generate conversation and I realize I have a meeting in 15 minutes so maybe tomorrow
@meguey and I are following Avery Alder's lead:
"I've been thinking about accessible pricing a lot lately, and so: All my games are now offered with a 30% discount for folks living in poverty or facing marginalized access in the community. Just use the discount code AFFORDABLE if you need it."
DMs: please make a habit out of congratulating your players for good rp. I just did a scene where my character discussed her (strained) relationship with her daughter and my DM was blown away by its emotional depth. Now I'm excited to have another scene and give it my all. It makes a difference
Good morning Mastodors! Any FFG X-Wing players out there? Is there a reliable source for acrylic movement templates and range rulers?

First impressions on the SCRPG Starter Kit happening on RPG.net: https://forum.rpg.net/showthread.php?819983-Sentinel-Comics-RPG-Starter-Kit-Released!
A few weeks ago, I asked my group what they want to play when we wrap up our current game. I wanted to do some great house intrigue stuff in PBTA. They all said "High level D&D. Let's throw around serious magic." Sigh.
Now, though? Now I'm excited about it. There'll be nuance to all of it, of course, because that's how we roll, but I'm looking forward to it.
