Jiggy, Nosig,

It is conflicting styles, but how do you both feel about a GM who wants *something* to go on? Even if it is something as simple as "I want to compliment him on his hat and ask for the map."

As a GM, my personal preference is a cinamatic style of play with descriptions, but don't want to discomfort anyone (well not overly).

Part of being a good GM is adapting, not only to annoyances like in this thread, but to players comfort levels.

Player1: <constantly rolling dice> <stops>

GM: OK Player1 your turn.
Player1: I hit for XX damage. <begins to start rolling dice again>

I do the constant die rolling thing both as a player and GM. As a player, it's a "let's kill all the low rolls so when I need to really do something, it'll be high" superstition. As a GM, it feeds the paranoia well, especially in Wrath of the Righteous.

Another GM paranoid trick but requires a screen.

Want to make players paranoid? Grab a bunch of dice but make the damage dice special (like all of your red d6 but you grab a fist full of dice.) Roll all the dice for a horrendous noise, then lament your bad dice luck and announce the damage. Your players will simultaneously panic at the racket and breathe a sign of relief at your luck.

Another thing that bugs me is when a player looks at the GM and says "Give me a Will save."

This used to bother me, but then I realized that it's the exact same thing I would say to a player as a GM. So it could easily be considered learned behavior. I'll usually respond by saying something like "what am I saving against? I need to know in case it's immune."

I've been on the recieveing end of this from a judge too - his "Make a Will save" is sometimes replied to with "make an SR check", or I might start listing the bonuses I get... is it a fear effect, demon caster, sleep effect, illusion, pain effect, shadow magic, sonic, language dependant, ...

As a GM, I'm known for asking for saves for no reason (except paranoia)

Spoiler:

"Ok I'll open the door."
"Make a reflex save."
"Is it poison? Magic? Mind Affecting."
"Mind Affecting."

"Nothing."

Squid incident?

Spoiler:
In an older scenario, the party encounters a ghost ship. The fighter/shadowdancer hadn't invested in a magic weapon yet, since it was a party of four, he left the ghosts to the Kyra, sorcerer and wizard and jumped into the water to go down to the wreck.

His stealth was high enough that he snuck past <redacted> and skipped to the final encounter.

A giant squid, with 30' reach. Against a fighter 6, shadowdancer 1. You can guess what happened.

I almost got a TPK. The ghosts killed Kyra, and the two casters went down. If they'd done one less point of damage for the final round, the squid would have killed them all.

This has been known locally as the 'Squidcident'.

Ha, Dell Rusk is not a spoiler, unless people google for it, and even then they're likely just to get confused.

Captain America is very well-written in terms of his history. There are lines of dialogue and expressions which evoke his WW2 origins. There are further conversations where he is coming to terms with this new age. Notable is the list of things he has written down to remind him to look up later. This changes from country to country and for the UK has some UK-centric items which are a bit... odd. Likely that the USA list is still funny, but not quite as incongruous as the UK list.

More details here - I wouldn't count it a spoiler. Some odd stuff for both lists I think

Chris Evans plays him straight, but without falling into the 'uninformed dullard' mode of a man out of time. I really like him, he is believable, and not just someone pretending to not know how things are these days. He also shows that his old sensibilities are still relevant here, and there is one scene which would be a spoiler if I described it which really brings his man out of time aspect to the fore. Very emotional, in a sad way.

Good. It is one of the aspects of 'freshly thawed Cap' I enjoy being done well. I need to find Bageley's "Man out of Time" in a collected format. It's basically written as Steve waking up in 2010.

Confirmation Story.
Ok, things went well to start, hyper Halfling, not needing the Underdark map (because I misplaced mine), teaching the newish player why you don’t wander off alone at first level. We had two paladins in the party. Janira asks the first, “So do you have the stick up your aft yet? He says “Yes.” Perfectly deadpan. So she asks the other paladin. “No.” First paladin says, “Don’t worry, I’ve got a spare.”
“I’ll scout ahead story” (Here there be spoilers)

Spoiler:
Half orc scouts into the room, rolls a one for his perception (giving him a 6) I describe the room, and the body on the floor, tell him he might see the glint of coins below the body. He walks in to stab the body, I ask for the d6 roll…

Three zombies he fails to notice get a surprise round! One hits, dropping him to 2 HP. Initiative is rolled, he withdraws as far as he can, past the rest of the party.

Me: The rest of you hear the sound of what seems to be a little girl crying in panic, then see your half orc friend go running past you, clutching his side in pain.

They dispatch the zombies and are disappointed to see the body was hiding shiny rocks.

After dispatching the oozes (almost resulting in dissolved paladin) and healing, they go fight the minotaur. It drops Janira, and is getting ready to Coup de grace her. (note, I missed he has Javalins to throw, this comes up later) Our paladins, and archeologist go running into combat. Minotaur drops paladin 1 to negatives, but he has die hard. Other paladin goes charging in, and draws the AoO. Now she’s at negatives (and doesn’t have die hard). Archeologist, being the only one in melee, tries to trip the minotaur, misses, and down he goes.

Half orc ranger is standing 70’ away, pinging with his crossbow ineffectually. Die Hard paladin swings, GM forgets he’s already at negs, minotaur returns the favour and now he’s permadead. After the archeologist goes down, it is pointed out to the ranger, “Well at least you no longer have the ‘in melee’ and cover penalties…”

Minotaur comes towards him. He gets off two more shots and retreats into the caves. Minotaur is still coming, but is squeezing now. Half orc is trying to draw him in (fortunately I had all the caverns maptiles, so making a tunnel was easy). Minotaur moves, half orc is going: Shoot, move. Move, reload. Shoot, move.

GM suddenly remembers (as the Minotaur moves into a 10 X 10 section) he has a javelin! Minotaur drills ranger for 8 points, he’s down to 2 HP (new player, 10 con) He retreats into a narrow cavern where he’s squeezing. Minotaur spends some time to get to him, then turns to go back and finish off the rest of the party.

Half Orc heroes up and comes out, shooting the minotaur. Minotaur throws Javelin, hitting.

One of the players points out, “Did you remember the squeezing penalties?” I hadn’t. Missed, by one. I describe it as “A javelin, as big as a spear, imbeds itself deep in the stone beside your head.” Half orc, stands his ground, reloads and shoots, knowing the minotaur can reach him with his axe.

Hit! 8 points! Dead minotaur! Much rejoicing at the table, even from the half orc player’s dad, (who played the dead paladin) Likely one of the more nail biting tables I’ve ran in a while.

It's one thing to discuss it in general terms ... It was really good, the writing was great, be sure to stick around for the credits, that sort of thing. It's another to say 'hey, how 'bout the big reveal that Bob the butler was the murder!"

Seriously, the difference is not that difficult to figure out. Good rule of thumb - if you're afraid something might be a spoiler, just put it in a spoiler tag to be safe.

Would you have gone to a Star Wars message board the day Empire first came out and post "Hey wow, everyone! Sure didn't see Vader being Luke's father huh? That sure was a big reveal - hope you all saw the movie before reading this, 'cause otherwise I just ruined it for you!"

I personally like the half elf aging rate for plane touched. It makes the "not quite right" nature more subtle. If your starting human bard is 21 and your starting half-elf or planetouched is 24, then it just seems he is a slow learner. It is when your human is 50 and slowing down but your half elf is still in his prime that he feels an "outsider". Works for the planetouched too.

Just my two c-bills.

Movie reboot?

Tie the discovery of the gate into it being burried under a Coptic church or some other site targeted by the MB. UN team, with backstabbing, going through. Some nation sends a rep to make first contact, another goes for the 'steal whatever tech we can to reverse engineer.' I'd even include a follower of the old gods, to have a conflict when Ra shows up. Is this really the Ra his ancestors worshipped? Is there really a Ra, and this alien is just an imposter? Crisis of faith can make for an interesting conflict.

Another option is keep the gate discovered in the early 20th century, and when the US stars screwing around with it, the Russians (who have the DHD) know because the DHD turns 'on'. So they want in.

I'd be more inclined to be more sympathetic with the protesters if I didn't see the thing that I quoted put into play every time a black character was put into a place of prominence or the spotlight in mainstream superhero comics (Miles Morales as the New Ultimate Spider-Man, John Stewart used in the JL animated series instead of Hal Jordan for starters. Or even the outrage of T'challa marrying Storm...).

You might want to check the outrage...

  • There was a lot of outrage that 'this white guy' was playing Green Lantern specifically because John Stewart was teh GL that more people knew, thanks to the DCAU.

  • The T'Challa/Storm marriage was protested, not because of the colour of his skin. (really reaching there) It was because it was a relationship that came out of nowhere. A lot of people found it offensive because it appeared Quesadia wanted 'the two black icons to marry each other.' even though there was no history.

    "I've said this before and I'm sticking with it. I feel that the comicbook fandom is horribly racist."

    I am amused that the one making the accusations of 'racism' is the one on the thread guilty of generalizing a group of people and assuming the group is someone wrong.

    I'd add that it was similar to the same 'crapstorm' about making DCnu Alan Scott gay, and people not understanding there are multiple Green Lanterns.*

    Ultimates is pretty clear that a) dead is dead and b) status quo is not G_d. I give them, personally, a lot more leeway. I'd love it if we saw three Spiderman movies, then Peter gets killed and the movie ends with a shadowed figure picking up the mask, for example. Then you could do a 'reboot' that wasn't a reboot.

    Spoiler:
    My issue with the Alan Scott bit was DC erased yet another character I liked (Jade) and then switched Alan's sexual preferences because they realized they eliminated a gay character in erasing her brother Obsidian. Changing a character just to fill a quota is patronizing to me. And that's part of it here for me. If this guy is the best actor for the Johnny Storm role, great. If he's the best <fill in the group> actor for the role, and they wanted that box checked... (I think Michael Clarke Duncan, for example was the best guy I've seen for the Kingpin role. And, let's face it, the best thing in that movie.)

    "The bottom line also is that the majority of the white male comic buying public WILL NOT support a black hero who has their own ongoing title no matter how good the quality of the actual book is. The Christopher Priest run of Black Panther proved that fairly definitively. The only reason that that book had the long run that it did was because Joey Q loved and believed in it SO MUCH."

    Wait, what?

    Wasn't the Priest run the "We're so much more awesome than you" run which included the "Thank you for coming. We've the cure to cancer, but we're not going to share it with you" moment?

    Or was the Hundal's run?

    (aside, I did find the "I'm so much more awesome than you" vibe from Avengers EMH annoying. Everyone got to show strengths and also be taken down a peg. (Tony's ego, Hank's instability, Clint being framed, Steven being replaced) It seemed to me that T'Challa was just "I've better tech than Tony, can outfight Steve and Clint, take special herbs that are poison to everyone else, etc."))

    I actually like Rhodey more than Tony in a lot of ways. I had the whole (first) War Machine run. I also liked Bishop. So :P

    As to Storm, when I read the X-books in the 80's I read her as more 'composite' than black (more caucasian features, african skin colour, blue slanted (asian-like) eyes, etc). To me she represented all of us more than a specific group. YMMV.

    GM: Ok, the cleric's up she's casting a spell at you.
    Me: Ok, sound burst so it's a DC 15 save for the stun.
    GM: Ok (rolls) Those two are stunned, but she isn't.
    Me: Ok each takes (rolls) 7 points of damage, and she has to make a concentration check. What's the spell level?
    GM: 2nd
    Me: Ok, so it's a DC 19 check (brief pause while he finds her concentration)
    GM: She made it, now make a will save.
    Me: Ok, wait, knowlege arcana, what spell is it?
    GM: hold person
    Me: I fail my save and flip her the bird. Aasimar.

    Next round I'm readying the bow to hit her if she casts. She does, I shoot, and drop her. Fortunately I had 'Voices of the Dead' queued up on the tablet.


    Samiel laments that he couldn't get down there in time to save her. (Killing people is bad business.)

    She did look good in the costume. :-) At least those movies had Michael Chiklas and Julian McMahon well cast.
