Electronic Principles (French Edition, without the CD), a big-ass book about... the principles of electronics, quite heavy, but a very interesting read for anyone interested in electronics (but prior experience and knowledge is advised), I have to read it (+ another book) during the holidays for the formation I will join in September.

This is going slowly  Slow Going...

Items are represented by illustrated cards - no scribbling endless equipment lists on a sheet.
One game we hosted had a system like this with cards for items, skills and spells with colored glass markers to be put on the cards for enchantement, durability and so on... one advantage of this system is that our GM created bags of loot where we picked ourselves (randomly !) a fixed amount of cards depending of the container or monsters looted. (but not all the drop was random)


Character sheet fits on half a page; the other half is a "cheet sheet" containing the rules.
That's a great asset for easy management and keeping the game fluid (rules).


When I show them conventional roleplaying games, they ask: "Why would anyone play that?" I dunno. I tried to join a D&D group recently and can't figure out why anyone plays it, either.
Bad GM or bad group, I guess... I don't see why D&D could not be fun... and more genreally I don't see why what you call a "conventional RPG" could not be fun !
As long there is a fluid gameplay and good storytelling (as much from the GM as from the player), it should be great ! It does the trick for me, as you said, it's all a matter of immersion.

Edit II: Killed by a miscast of Evaporate. This is such a bitch.
How ?

I'm currently playing BlazBlue : Calamity Trigger, this reminds me how I suck at fighting games... but I have a blast nonetheless

I may have found a group for a few sessions. The only drawback is that they are almost all total beginners in tabletop RPGs (this is not a critic), so I have to be the DM and we should play an "lighter" RPG (by request) ... me being the DM is quite a challenge I must admit... any suggestions on "light" tabletop RPG ?

I'm still undecided on either making a one-shot makeshift RPG based on very simple rules in order to move on a real game in the next sessions if they like this or beginning a "true" game...

I'll let the other person have the gun because :
  • I'll just don't have the courage to kill the other person
  • I'm too curious to shoot myself

PP : A lot of my classmates are spending their days to whine about how they are bored. But when I propose something to do (and I plan this something in order that everyone can attend), they whine even more about how they can't because they are tired. We're 21 (for the most), for fuck's sake !!!!! We all got our B.Sc !!!! So we should be celebrating, partying, drinking, whathever !!!!

Jamestown - Legend of the Lost Colony, very cool shmup.

And a bit of Stone Soup, but my runs were total failures.

Led a five-headed hydra from the first floor of the Lair to the dungeon in Stone Soup. I have a fire bow, but the fiend is immune to poison and need to see if Mephitic Cloud can actually confuse him without getting in melee range.
Any creature immune to poison is not affected by Mephitic Cloud or by evaporation of a Confusion Potion. But it can still be confused by spells like Confusing Touch (but you have to be on close combat), Mass Confusion or unreliable stuff like the Staff of Chaos or Wand of Random Effects (but you shouldn't rely on that though).

On topic, did a few plays of Stone Soup without any good results exept as a Sludge Elf Necromancer (my favorite combination so far) who got owned by the combo Hill Giant with nets (Really vicious) : one showed up at almost melee range, got me in his nets and I couldn't do anything.

Do the gods in this get moody like they do in Ivan? I'm so hesitant to berserk with my minotaur because I don't want my god to just go "how about fuck you." and spawn an angel which proceeds to kill me.
The easiest to piss off are the "good" gods : Eilvilon (healer god), The Shining One and Zin. The others are hard to piss off if I recall well (some cannot be I think).



BY THE POWER OF THE GREY ONE, I RETURN THIS THREAD FROM IT'S DIGITAL GRAVE TO TALK ABOUT STONE SOUP!


So, fucking Amulet of the Gourmand. It lets me eat raw food and not get sick.

Fuck yeah.
With it you can also eat when not hungry.

Ain't that the truth. Not being able to move fast enough for poison to work it's mojo was what killed me off. And had bad luck in melee without a weapon, but definitely a combo I want to try again.
They have an additional attack (poison spit) which is non-negligible... but come on... 1 AC at level 1 Huh? Even a rat can own you in a few turns... but once you get mephitic cloud things get a lot easier, even if the movement speed and the mutation "Deformed Body" are truly annoying.


42481 Bane the Basher (level 13, 113/113 HPs)
             Began as a Minotaur Berserker on June 20, 2011.
             Was a High Priest of Trog.
             Forgot to breathe
             ... caused by an orange crystal statue
             ... on Level 13 of the Dungeon.
             The game lasted 03:53:31 (26706 turns).
Manly tears were shed, I suppose ^^

On topic... "LULZ CURSED KNIFE"

Played a bit of Stone Soup several times as a Naga Venom Mage. From what I recalled, it was a very good combination. I got owned beyond all recognition in the early levels...

And Septerra Core, I have absolutely no clue on what to do next...
