Demons and Other Wetwork Things

No.63479562 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
So there was some talk of a monster and other childish things brew yesterday and I’m here to report back.

Session started dead spacey with players being mercs sent to a inert space vessel that had a bunch of IMPORTANT SPACE STUFF.

After building some suspense game takes a turn and goes full DOOM fighting zombies and half human monstrosities.

Eventually stumble upon a blood sacrifice on the bridge that strikes everyone with a red lighting that infuses them with a demon.

It was at this point I introduced the demon/monster half of the game and my players lost it (had intentionally been keeping that part of the game hidden).

Overall we had a great time, but I definitely need to put more work into the brew.

Power gaming

No.63506004 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Hey /tg/. How do I avoid becoming "That Guy"? I enjoy tinkering with character builds, specifically DnD 3.5 and 5e, and I've gotten a couple of concerned looks from my groups when I tell them excitedly about a feat I had discovered, or a variant rule that looked interesting, or an idea I had to tweak a base class/subtype. I like to make powerful characters, I suppose, and I'm more than happy to help my party members get an edge on what they're trying to accomplish with their characters when they ask. I just get the feeling they're thinking I'm trying to powergame or break the system when it's just what I enjoy doing.

TL;DR what should I do to avoid becoming "That Guy"? Is it as simple as attaching stronger RP ties to my out of game mechanical decisions about my character? I feel I already do that for the most part.

Realism

No.63505187 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
How realistic do you like your fantasy worlds? Like reality except noted or actually fantastical?

Maybe you always meant verisimilitude rather than realism?
