Maybe you guys do it differently, but the way I've always run it is the player tells me what they want to do, and I tell them what to roll.

Your DM sounds like an asshole and generally a bad DM.

I mean.. making you roll charisma or intimidate for every NPC interaction? Really?

Last session my DM threw a bunch of wolves at us in the night. I have the ability to communicate simple ideas to animals, so I communicated "No fight, tonight our pack rests and does not hunt, share in the warmth of our fire and our food" and gave them some beef jerky, and they left.

DM was halfway between annoyed and impressed. He'd really wanted to use wolves in a fight, but he couldn't think of a reason that they'd stick around after that.

Was good fun.

Nope and nope, but a few years ago a few mates and I tried to come up with a mix of Pathfinder, Fallout, and Ponies which sadly didn't pan out because half of the people were moronic.

I didn't realize there were actual systems now.

I see that now, sorry.

I empathize with you, but cut the DM a bit of slack - especially if he's new.
I'd work towards trying to help him outside of the sessions on what to do better so it works more for you and him.
User avatar #49 - lolollo (10/20/2014) [-]
A lot of the story involved more sarcastic banter that it did sincere negative emotions, like it turned out the whole "You don't get experience" thing was just a joke. He immediately took it back once d6s started to fly his way. We gave him some shit over how "needlessly specific" his storytelling got in the beginning, and he figured he'd be a smartass and get really vague towards the end. We figured out how inexperienced everyone was (turned out I was the only one who'd played extensively before) and just went with it.

#63 - bestfoxgirl (10/20/2014) [-]
I really wanted to put up with that military bs FJ has a thing for, but I just can't leave that one alone.

1. Freedom is a part of Human Rights, therefore they are, indeed, granted. You don't have to "deserve" it.
2. People who are productive to society can be perceived as ones deserving freedom more than ones who help in illegal invasions
3. Nowadays soldiers are fighting for their governments only, not for people. Every military intervention stirs up the public opinion of many countries involved, and occasionally lead to terrorist acts of people who get enough of this shit (notice US's aggressive behavior in 70s to 90s which resulted in 9/11 and other terrorist acts). So yeah, basically it's more like a part of a problem instead of a solution.

the only thing that ever really pissed me off about GG was this one person who kept insulting a veteran who was pro GG. i told her to respect veterans but all she did was keep saying how the marines were sexist and that veterans don't deserve her respect. i may not have the courage to fight for my country but i have the fucking decency to respect those who do possess that courage. makes me so fucking pissed that there are people out there who don't respect veterans. you can disagree with them but show them some goddamn respect.

Don't you have the possibility to put sugar and milk yourself in a starbucks?

Oh no that's fine, question are good. Although it is 3 am so I might have to answer questions tomorrow.

The map does rely on your ability to project the scene.

But yes, you do need character sheets for every villain you make. Also NPC's, because sometimes they get into fights, or join the party. If a player isn't playing the NPC, then the GM plays that character as well as narrating. Non enemy animals too, if someone decides they want to hunt.

Glad to have been of some help!

It is generally the DM's job to keep track of distance, location, placements, and geography of the map. After all, it is your campaign, and you are running it. It takes a lot of planning to create a map, and you need to write a lot of stuff down. Grids are generally only useful for small areas, like a room or hallway, to display the location of enemies and players.

I guess you should start of simple, and build up to more complicated plans later on. When you get the hang of it, every action a character makes has a consequence, although it might not happen right away or even to them. For instance, if you bring the tiefling in your party to your hidden elf village, you will get banned from the village because IT'S A TIEFLING AND YOU LED IT TO THE VILLAGE OMGWTFBBQ! Or, if the characters manage to defeat an orc hoard a certain way, the elf village will get destroyed by Drow, whereas if they didn't then the DM could have skipped that plot point completely.

So, basically, you know those choose your own adventures books? That's what this is like. Only you, the DM, need to have the plot go off in a direction for every single decision the party makes or could make. This isn't something you can make up on the fly because it has to fit into the end of the campaign smoothly.
User avatar #9 - evictedone (10/12/2014) [-]
So, if the grid-based map isn't necessary, then it relies heavily on people's ability to project the scene themselves. At that point, though, do you just end up keeping character sheets for the enemies they face, so you can keep track of that stuff?

I'm actually going to a session tonight, so I can ask my DM any questions you may have. I'll write down the questions and give them to him, and then post the answers back here or on your profile, if that helps.

Which campaign are you using? There's dozens to hundreds of them, all with their specific requirements and what you need. Are the handbooks, dictionary, and map all from the same/particular campaign/world/storyline? And you forgot character sheets.

You know how mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell? Well, a D20 die is your god. You actually need about 7 different types of die at least: 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 20, and a percent die. DMs have even more types, and certain games require different die.

In all honestly, I've never been a DM, I'm just one of the players. Becoming a good DM takes a long, long time and practice. I would suggest that you find a D&D session in your neighborhood to look for someone with experience.

D&D isn't easy if everyone in the group is a newbie. There needs to be someone experienced with the game, because it is extremely complicated when you first start out, but becomes simpler and more fun later on.

Well, to start, we ended up buying two different starter sets at different times.
http://3.bp.blo gspot.com /_DSs2bX13hVc/TI0XCUUalyI/AAAAAAAACho/3PkMGYGqXRA/s320/DD-Sta rter-Set.jpg
and
http://cartam agicastore.com/im age/cache/data/dnd-next/st arter-set-dnd-500x500.jpg
Both came with 6 polyhedral game dice (4, 6, 8, 10, 12, and 20, but no percent die), and an adventure, but only the red box came with a grid-based map and a set of tokens to use. And, sadly, the closest place we know to get anything useful is a Hasting's an hour drive away lol. We could buy the stuff off the internet, but we need to know what else we need, to begin with.

As for settings, I only know about the Forgotten Realms setting, but I've yet to commit most of the information for it to memory. Considering I'll end up being DM for my group, I'd appreciate anything your DM could come up with for information. I'm about to head to work, for the moment, so it'll be a good 5 or 6 hours before I get back to ya, though.

Questions;1) Is the monster dictionary absolutely necessary? 2) Do you guys just use a single grid-based map for every occasion? 3) How much of your supplies do you get off the internet?

I appreciate your reply, and thank you.

Oh, I live in a town where's there's a gaming shop, so we just buy stuff from there. Anything else we can just look up online for stats and stuff. Typically from what I know, the DM makes up the map.

I'll be back around midnight so I'll get back to you then.

So the DMs say:

" we don't ever use a grid, however most DM's do, but those materials cost money so we don't. He's going to need percentile dice and a lot of D6 for character creation. He can always check the Forgotten Realms Wiki forgottenrealms.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page for all those plots and info. If he wants he can always check to find the manuals for 3.5 (or SDR) online minus.com/mdnd35[/spoiler] as well (as that is the version that Forgotten Realms takes place in) There is also the DnD Wiki [spoiler] www.dandwiki.com/wiki/Main_Page that we get a lot of our info from as well. Monster manuals aren't required cause all that info is online as well, he can also goggle some campaigns if he doesn't want to come up with things on the fly. And there is the online community Roll20 roll20.net/ . Hope that helps!"

It was great because they were actually discussing this during the session.

Wow. I didn't actually expect a response tonight. And this, right here, pretty much makes my day. Thanks for the reply, and for checking with your DMs. It helps a lot, and with a bit of luck, I might get the first campaign going sometime this or next week, so long as I can get a bit of planning going.

But, if you guys didn't use a grid, how did you keep track of distance, locations, placements, and the geography of the "map" you were playing on?
User avatar #8 to #7 - zafara (10/12/2014) [-]
Glad to have been of some help!

It is generally the DM's job to keep track of distance, location, placements, and geography of the map. After all, it is your campaign, and you are running it. It takes a lot of planning to create a map, and you need to write a lot of stuff down. Grids are generally only useful for small areas, like a room or hallway, to display the location of enemies and players.

I guess you should start of simple, and build up to more complicated plans later on. When you get the hang of it, every action a character makes has a consequence, although it might not happen right away or even to them. For instance, if you bring the tiefling in your party to your hidden elf village, you will get banned from the village because IT'S A TIEFLING AND YOU LED IT TO THE VILLAGE OMGWTFBBQ! Or, if the characters manage to defeat an orc hoard a certain way, the elf village will get destroyed by Drow, whereas if they didn't then the DM could have skipped that plot point completely.

So, basically, you know those choose your own adventures books? That's what this is like. Only you, the DM, need to have the plot go off in a direction for every single decision the party makes or could make. This isn't something you can make up on the fly because it has to fit into the end of the campaign smoothly.

So, if the grid-based map isn't necessary, then it relies heavily on people's ability to project the scene themselves. At that point, though, do you just end up keeping character sheets for the enemies they face, so you can keep track of that stuff?

Heh, I'm never gonna run outta questions for this thing, and I'm sorry for that.
User avatar #10 to #9 - zafara (10/12/2014) [-]
Oh no that's fine, question are good. Although it is 3 am so I might have to answer questions tomorrow.

The map does rely on your ability to project the scene.

But yes, you do need character sheets for every villain you make. Also NPC's, because sometimes they get into fights, or join the party. If a player isn't playing the NPC, then the GM plays that character as well as narrating. Non enemy animals too, if someone decides they want to hunt.

You're a big help, Zafara,and I owe ya for the info tonight. But, if you're getting tired, I'll let you go. Sleep well, man!
User avatar #12 to #11 - zafara (10/12/2014) [-]
Eh, just start asking questions tomorrow and I'll get back to you. The stories I could tell about campaigns. I would have actually gotten back to you earlier last night but the elf ranger saw a giant bird and decided to kill it. It was a baby. Of a species that fires lightening. I had to hide under a covered wagon because my weapons are not ranged.

I actually got experience for being smart enough to do that.
