My group are all crime analysts of different sorts, so we thought we'd play Delta Green. It has to be the best system I've ever played. If you have any questions about the game I'd be happy to answer. We've played roughly 15 sessions at this point.
The percentile system is...
I've read it, but haven't run it. The game seems pretty tight overall.
I really like the extended tests mechanic. You're rolling skill tests, and if you succeed you add the percentage of your roll to the total (so if you roll a 37, the 37 sticks around, and any additional successful tests...
I don't know how much I could contribute considering I usually only get to run 1 to 2 games a year (weekly gaming). I posted a review of Shadow of the Demon Lord in the review archive a while back.
I'd be down, but I'm not sure how much content I could provide.
It's a mixture of both, I'd say. You can, for example, buy a rifle that deals 2d8+2 very early on (which means it's totally normal for an NPC to have the same weapon). A psychic starts with 1d6 HP that is rolled. It can be a lot if you're not hacking the game. The heroic rules are a good...
Fantastic game. The main thing I would tell you to be wary of is how deadly the game is. This isn't just OSR deadly, this is on another level. NPCs can easily deal a ton of damage at first level depending on the tech level of the planet they're on, and when you have PCs with under 10 health...
Haha I find read reviews pretty useless. I've played so many games that sounded great on paper, but failed to be good in actual play. I think minimum you need at last 3-4 sessions with a game to really judge it.
Just wrapped up my shadow of the demon lord game tonight. Really happy with how it went. All the characters survived the last fight and it was pretty epic.
I don't know how you could be a paid reviewer in this hobby. I've played almost every week this year and I've ran two campaigns.
I wrote something up for a top 5 (in no particular order).
Dungeon world (4/4)
Succeeds at its goal to make a very narrative version of dungeons and dragons
Great at medium length campaigns (12-20 sessions)
Keeps the game going at a great pace and consistently ups the tension of the session...
I've always heard that one, I meant to pick it up. Did you enjoy it?
Would you say that's a good place to start with forged in the dark? It's the only setting that is of interest to me. My only worry is that the game is tight and I prefer loose games.
Decided to give them a rating. I use the 4 point scale. I've only been gaming for around 9-10 years now, so my list isn't as long as some of you.
Dnd 5e (2/4)
Dnd 3.5 (1/4)
Pathfinder 2e (3/4)
Five torches deep (3/4)
Dungeon world (4/4)
Shadow of the demon...
I always get really confused with the way actual plays start out. They always have this huge info dump at the start that is like a brick wall.
I just started watching that one and it fell into the same issues. Do people start out their home games like that?
I feel like it's much better to...
