Railroading GMs

No.38492125 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Why do some GMs insist on railroading players into obvious problems/encounters, even when there's good reason to believe it's a trap/bad idea?

Happened to be in the campaign when this little bit happened.

The party reached the main chamber in the pyramid and this room had 3 sarcophagus.

My friend, playing his alchemist went, "I am not touching that. I can read what the runes around the room says and I'm sure that those are either trapped or have a mummy (he rolled a nat 20 on linguistics).

The DM was like, "come on. you know you want to."

Friendanon: No, we're done. no more monsters that we know of, jobs done. let's get paid.
DM: Come on.
Friendanon: No
DM: Come on. you know you want to.
Friendanon: No
DM: What's it going to take?
Friendanon: One in-character favor that you cannot say no to.
DM: Ehhh..
>knows that if he doesn't say yes, he doesn't get to spring his trap
Fine, bu-
Friendanon: No conditions but what I say. Don't try to loophole or bullshit a bullshitter.

LO AND BEHOLD, we encountered 3 mummies, and one of them happened to be a Mummy Lord. We were only level 5.

We were also intended to be trapped in the room, but luckily my friend found a spot where we can jam our non-magic weapons to slow down the trap while we ran out. We left the room, but the mummies intended to not let us go completely without a sacrifice.

My friend gave his arm away as a bargain (seriously, mummies in D&D do this kinda shit?). We got absolutely nothing out of that forced mummy disturbance other than a bit of EXP. He later got a prosthetic arm a la Full Metal Alchemist style, but we still had to waste thousands of gold on that.

Richard Coeur de Lion raises his sword as he rides upon a noble steed. Behind stands the Third Crusade, an army of thousands willing to give their lives in the name of the God and Jesus Christ. “Charge!” he calls. They begin swarming the gigantic Manhunter automaton, crawling up on its feet and grabbing onto chinks and weakpoints in its armor.

:: NO MAN ESCAPES THE MANHUNTERS. :: The giant Manhunter raises it foot, then stomps.

You brace yourself. The ensuing blast of sand and wind throws you backward. A couple of crusading knights fly past you from the sheer force of it all.

“No you don’t!” you scream. You start running at the giant thing. A force of horsemen led by King Richard I accompany you. The King himself lends his hand to you, which you grab. He hoists you onto his horse, right into his lap. “Merci beaucoup!”

As you charge, you sight hundreds of brave crusaders crawling up the hull and armor of the monstrous Manhunter. It tries swatting and batting as many as it can away with its one arm, but soon a few manage to crawl inside from the wreckage of the missing one.

“Now, my adorable little French girl!” You stand up on King Richard’s horse. “For Christiandom, slay the beast!” You jump up and fly.

It’s time for the finishing blow!

THIS IS A BETA TEST!! ANY NEW SYSTEMS MAY BE ADDED, CHANGED, AND/OR REMOVED WITH OR WITHOUT NOTICE

You can talk with anyone in your own vicinity. When you want to speak with a NPC directly, link to the post where OP Roleplayed as the NPC you are talking with. To talk with players that are not close to you, a trained Raven is required.

When you are doing an action follow this:

OP tells you in his update that you are under attack by a bear that came rushing out the forest at you.

You post some light RP to explain your characters line of thoughts/reasons why you are doing what you are about to do and/or quick preparation before you post your action in this format separately from the RP:

[Players Name] > Evade

Based on how high or low the number you got in your post number, you either successfully evaded the bears charge or you got tumbled by the bear. Things like being less equipped or having armor equipped at the time will either increase or decrease the chance of evading. It is up to OP to inform players AFTER they have rolled for an action if their chances were increased or decreased based on their skills or equipments, as to not give the players a choice and to explain why they failed/succeeded. Anything is possible as long as your character can do it.

Chapter Master General

No.38512147 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
> What is Chapter Master?
A Space Marine Chapter management simulator with mechanics resembling Master of Orion II and with amounts of FUN not unlike Dwarf Fortress. Also aims to be part King of Dragon Pass in the future.

> Where do I download it?
See Obligatory Links below

LOOK IN THE KEY LINKS FOR DOWNLOAD LINKS. ALSO READ THE EMPEROR DAMNED MANUAL AND FAQ OR GET PURGED BY THE =][= (they're outdated but still provide good info for first-time players).

> Does anyone have the weapon stats?
Since the release of ver. 0.635, all weapons and armours have stats now in the game. After the GRAND UPDATE (0.65), Relics also have their stats shown in the Librarium.

> Where do I find the changelog?

>Special report:

Duke's attempts to find a replacement coder didn't go that well. It turns out that the reason he needed to hand it off in the first place was that he ran out of money and needed to actually support himself and not starve. Therefore, a new solution has been proposed:

https://www.patreon.com/vidya

The more money Duke gets, the more time he will be able to dedicate to the project.
+ + + ATTENTION EVERYONE + + +

Current version: 0.653.60

Thought for the day: As the Emperor protects, so must we.

THOU SHALL NOT SEND THE ENTIRE CHAPTER:
1) ON A CRUSADE
2) SPACE HULK
3) DORMANT NECRON TOMB

HONOUR THY SAVE FILES, THAT THY DAYS MAY BE LONG UPON THE GAME WHICH THE DUKE GIVETH THEE.

what that means is to make sure your save file doesn't say ERROR before you close the game. if it does, save it in the next available file.

THOU SHALL NOT SUFFER A MALICIOUS FILE TO LIVE.
