Wait, something is wrong.


Bored? Looking for something to do on a Friday night?

WHY NOT GAME?

This is the place to post one shots, pick up games, whatever. See if anyone is around, maybe they want to play something too!

Thinking of running through the D&D Next playtext materials on Roll20 this weekend. I have always kept meaning to check out the D&D Next stuff so I figure now is my chance. No exact time is set yet for when it will happen other than sometime this weekend.

Looking for two or three more guys to play NWOD Hunter over IRC. We'll basically start playing as soon as I have a few guys together and online at the same time.

Join SynIrc #IndigoHunter if interested.

Will run a game and see how it goes, if its a success maybe run another. I'm GMT but can stay up late most nights.

Hey, I've got to get a playtest in for my submission to the Traditional Games Feb Design Contest and most of my group has dropped out on me. So, if anyone is down for a playtest session on Roll20 in about 30 minutes (7:30pm Central Time), check out my game: Caverns and Wyrms

I'll be starting up a channel on syn.irc.net in a few and edit the channel name in when ready.

Edit: Ok, on irc.synirc.net #CnW if anyone is interested or has any questions. Going to be trying to start as soon as I've got 2 or 3 more people.

Gonna run some Dungeon World in when I can get a couple more people. Mics heavily encouraged (prob doing voice through Skype as R20 can be a little shaky), bring a level 1 character.

The druid turned into an eagle and dropped an evil sorcerer into the lava. The mage made a fire elemental increasingly angry by his constant usage of ice spells in fire territory. The fighter stabbed a guy straight in the face, and then the thief dumped a liquefied elemental on that same guy. The party swore two oaths to mummies in exchange for treasure and physically rubbed a prisoner against things to check for traps (the prisoner wound up getting killed by a mummy). After finding several instruments as loot, they briefly contemplated starting a band. Eventually the Mage accidentally caused the volcano the dungeon was in to erupt, which fulfilled his obligation to the pissed of fire elemental and seemed a good way to wrap things up.

For an excellent introduction to the role-playing hobby I would certainly recommend 5th Edition D&D. A superb starting point is the Mines of Phandelver module which comes included with the Starter Set.

That also includes all the rules you'll need in a single, well-presented box!

I'm a silly ditz and I feel like doing something!

So I'm going to run a pathfinder dungeon crawl game in #pfrd on SynIRC tonight!

I'll see how many people are around in half an hour or an hour to make this viable (disclaimer: feel free to jump in even after that, new dudes are pretty easy to find in a crazy dungeon.) We will make dudes and fight through rooms and see how much crazy treasure you can get before people get tired and go to sleep!

I want to play a one-shot of Misspent Youth, the sci-fi dystopia game where you stand up to Authority, tonight! Meet me in IRC channel #badwrongfun at 8 PM EST! Come as soon as you can, because there are only 5 PC slots and it's first come, first serve. At the most, follow the link to download a free copy of the rules and read them through; at the least, brainstorm things real-world bullies do that piss you off. Make sure you can access Google Docs, because we'll be using it heavily. See you tonight!

I wrote a program that simulates Quidditch games this morning and am interested in running a fantasy league (where each player is the coach of their own Quidditch franchise). We'd run a draft in Google chat or something similar, and then simulate multiple games ending in a playoff.

The only 'rules change' between this and the books is a 50-point Snitch capture, which eliminates the 'Snitch capture is almost always a win' problem. Of course, I'd be willing to change that if everyone was against it.

Anyhoo, I didn't want to create a separate thread until I had some bites. PM me or reply back here if you don't have PM.

Not terribly. Players have a statistic related to their position ranging from 0-30. Once a team selects a roster, I punch it in to a text file and feed that to the simulation. The rest does itself -- it spits out a log file with the results and individual player statistics.

Here's an example output from the program using the godawful test names I wrote during unit tests. Rest assured this would not be the quality of player names in future:

60 Test - Test2 90


Test fields Seeko The Great at Seeker.
Chasers are Katie Bell, Chasey McTwo, and Treemang Chasethree.
Beaters are Beato the First and Beato the Second.
And finally, Keeper Bernie Keepsalot.

Test2 fields Seeko The Great2 at Seeker.
Chasers are Katie Bell2, Chasey McTwo2, and Treemang Chasethree2.
Beaters are Beato the First2 and Beato the Second2.
And finally, Keeper Bernie Keepsalot2.

[Test] Stats
Chaser Katie Bell attempted 11 shots, and scored 0 times.
6 were misses,
4 were saved by the Keeper, Bernie Keepsalot2
and Katie Bell was hit with a bludger on 1 other plays.

Chaser Chasey McTwo attempted 12 shots, and scored 2 times.
6 were misses,
3 were saved by the Keeper, Bernie Keepsalot2
and Chasey McTwo was hit with a bludger on 1 other plays.

Chaser Treemang Chasethree attempted 13 shots, and scored 4 times.
4 were misses,
4 were saved by the Keeper, Bernie Keepsalot2
and Treemang Chasethree was hit with a bludger on 1 other plays.
[Test2] Stats
Chaser Katie Bell2 attempted 11 shots, and scored 0 times.
4 were misses,
6 were saved by the Keeper, Bernie Keepsalot
and Katie Bell2 was hit with a bludger on 2 other plays.

Chaser Chasey McTwo2 attempted 12 shots, and scored 2 times.
6 were misses,
4 were saved by the Keeper, Bernie Keepsalot.

Chaser Treemang Chasethree2 attempted 13 shots, and scored 2 times.
6 were misses,
5 were saved by the Keeper, Bernie Keepsalot.


To end the game, Seeko The Great2 captured the Emerald Snitch!

And that wraps it up, ladies and gentlemen.

Test2 wins the match by a score of 90 - 60 !
