The GM actively trying to fuck me over notwithstanding, it was a good game.

What about you, /tg/? play any games that against all odds you win in the end, despite thinking you were going to lose?

Obscure RPGs

Sell me on your favorite obscure or strange system. Tell us stories of the campaigns you've had in them, or the campaigns you wish you could run in them.

I've been a fan of Infernum the moment I heard of it. It's a fully fleshed out and mapped 9 circles of hell, with factions, cool enemies, and tons of fodder for a badass campaign.

Killing off a PC's friends

No.63517967 ViewReplyOriginalReport
This is not something I'm planning on doing, but I've had a very allergic reaction to Wick's "Play Dirty" in my youth after being exposed to one too many GMs who relished in being assholes in and out of table, and he was a big proponent of using a player's affiliates as train fuel en route to Drama.

I often see posts that say killing off people close to the PC (or doing something similar; there was an old pasta where the epilogue included a player character's wife cheating on him and ultimately dumping him while he was gone) is a surefire way to make it so that players never affiliate with anyone. I agree.

As I already said, I dislike the idea of taking a shit into the player's escapism and discouraging them from forming bonds, and with taking their pet kitten and impaling it on a trap to play up a cheap tragedy, but how, if ever, would you do that in a tasteful way, that wouldn't feel forced by a man high on GRRM?

Pic unrelated, but I know someone will add it to his folder.

Those are called forumware and are hard to get for a reason. Some china-recasters have warhounds. If you have 0 epic minis right now just get a vanguard miniatures army. Don't publicly share any recaster info you have.
