I bought an XL squishy d20 from etsy and I love it! I prefer unique sets/dice.
Also I just started Unsleeping City on Dimension20 and I'm so in love with it already. (I'll save my Brennan Lee Mulligan sperging for another thread.)

Ooohh cool! I have done other hobbies for a while but I love painting miniatures. My bf is a WH40k autist and I bought a couple armies too kek, though both sit mostly unpainted… I have only played a couple times though, so I wonder if I should sell my minis though that would break his heart lol. DnD with the same figures sound found but we never got around to it since we don't have friends really
I have Sylvaneths from Age of Sigmar and Tau from Warhammer 40k (yes yes I know lol). Here's my Sylvaneth inspo pic
Oh squish dice roll so quietly, they're wonderful. And you can sperg about TTRPG movers and shakers, I never heard of Brennen Lee Mulligan before, it looks like he's a well known GM? Sounds cool!>>215081
did you paint your Sylvaneth with doe dots? That inspo pic is so cute, love the color reference for the beetle wings
Oh no, what was awkward if it's okay to ask? 3e is pretty tough to get into because the mechanics are crunchy and the edition suffered serious power creep issues, but there were also a lot more gatekeepery tossers playing 3e compared to current.
If you still want to try D&D, 5e is the current edition and is the most beginner-friendly. The Player's Handbook is enough to teach how the game is played and you could even make your character using just the PHB if you wanted. (Half-elves are a base PC race and there are three full arcane caster classes of wizard, sorcerer, and warlock if you still wanted to play mage.) That's all it takes if you're looking to get into the game itself. Finding people to play with is a different subject and I'm a little too hiki to help there, but I'm sure other nonnas have good advice on the social gaming aspect!
If not, apparently solo tabletop gaming has taken off in the last few years https://lifehacker.com/solo-tabletop-rpgs-are-really-fun-actually-1849067606
Being a newcomer can be intimidating, especially playing in new groups. Online resources like Roll20 can be good for finding games, but can be toxic
if you're not familiar with the content. Like >>215341
said though, best to familiarise with the base rules, finding a version of the Players Handbook to read online is remarkably easy.
If you're able to, getting a game with an all female group, or mixed at the bare minimum–Swear to god, learning to play in a game store back when was a hellhole of sweaty nerds and casual misogyny that I wouldn't wanna subject anyone to these days.
>>215341>>215417>what was awkward if it's okay to ask?
Other than the fact that talking to the friend was awkward in general, I think he was a shit DM. Me and my bf were always asking what we had to do next (both of us were beginners) and he was pretty slow and didn't seem to put in real effort.>3e is pretty tough to get into because the mechanics are crunchy and the edition suffered serious power creep issues
I see, I had heard that 3e was the best one for some reason but if 5e is easier I'll probably start with that one.
I'm also pretty socially awkward, ESL and asocial in general so I would only feel comfortable playing with people I know well enough, not with strangers. Maybe I'll watch others play on YouTube or Twitch or something while getting familiar with the rules.
Of course, it doesn't need to be D&D.>apparently solo tabletop gaming has taken off in the last few years
Oooh, thanks for suggesting this. I had no idea solo TTRPG was a thing.
It's definitely because of critical role. In the french paper RPG scene for instance critical role had much less of an impact so the dominant setting is Call of Cthulhu and D&D games are rather uncommon>>215501
Vampire The Masquerade is often a blast, it's in a modern setting and it's popular enough that most DMs know roughly the rules
community and stranger things also contributed to the recent increase in d&d popularity
i think sadly in the minds of many people ttrpg and d&d are one and the same

I wish my friends wanted to learn Call of Cthulhu, I want to DM but they already know DnD too well and don't wanna invest time into another game system. Plus now we have too much of a time difference so I don't think they'd wanna try something so immersive online. Alexa, play despacito
You just have to trick them>they have to fight cultists that worship a very large mind flayer/a very ugly beholder whose name is an great old one's name but backwards>sanity system is done with psychic damage and already existing spells like feeblemind (cast with traps or something)>skills are based on ability score (eg accounting = INT * 5) and you just don't mention their existence at all, just check your secret ref sheet when you do a skill check
They're going to play CoC whether they want it or not

I think it comes with time like other nonna said. I suffer from pic related so it really did take a while to get better at opening up to others through rping, so anyone can really learn to get there imo.
I just begin developing characters by brainstorming things I find cool, even like other characters from games/books etc I like. Like one time I was coming up with a character and I first said "ok I love Lei Lei from Darkstalkers, so I'm going to use her as a starting point, but make the character male instead" and went from there until I had a surprisingly fleshed out, if zany, character sheet.
Trial and error, nonniekins!>>234330
That sounds like absolute heaven nonnie
, I must admit. I tried with my uni's group but they were such, such touchy little rich fuccbois that I gave up and one guy had an absolute breakdown because he insisted that I had "promised on my life" to give him my Netrunner starter kit, which is OOP and expensive af lmfao. Amazing card game btw hope there's like a sequel to it one day!
As for me currently, I'm thinking of running a game of Don't Rest Your Head, which is about insomniacs who gain reality bending powers upon staying awake too long and entering a weird nightmare plane a lot like the way Silent Hill works, but the power system is soooo fun in it, I swear to god.https://evilhat.com/product/don-t-rest-your-head/
Here's a link to the official pdf, highly recommended!

AYRT, I never realized anyone replied to me before the thread fell down the catalog. I was deciding between running Don't Rest Your Head and Trail of Cthulhu for a horror oneshot event recently, and I went with Trail of Cthulhu so I'm curious how Don't Rest Your Head plays. I got really into Trail of Cthulhu scenarios after a successful The Dance in the Blood run and I simply cannot wait to inflict more Lovecraftian horrors on 5e zoomers (yes they're enjoying themselves too). Picrel, if you know you know.
Sorry if this is off-topic, but I hate that Warhammer is infested with trannies.
My local Games Workshop had a tranny regular who used to make everything fucking awkward whenever he came in. He seemed to change his pronouns by the day, on one occasion insisting to be referred to as 'it', which I refused to do. I swear, one time, he was wearing these leggings so low you could literally see the top of his pubes. He eventually got banned from all Games Workshop stores because he thought it would be a great idea to just casually admit in conversation that he's sexually attracted to children but would never act on it. In a Games Workshop. A place that is literally a glorified toy shop. Where children routinely come to play, paint and hang out.
God, I was so fucking glad to see the back of that fucker.

Starting to think DM has a pee fetish or something. Every time we scare someone or chase them off they wet themselves and I'm getting grossed out by it. I only have so much uncomfortable laughter remaining nonnies.
ayrp sorry so late. but i just want to paint my little guys but the online groups are so full of disgusting males and “male feminists” who are pushing for female space marines.
Not to get emotionally attached to a game but it would diminish the Sororitas if there was female marines.
(but also just let one thing be exclusive. god.)

I was thinking about running a Kids on Brooms game set in the Winx Club universe for a few friends, since I think the two would mesh well together, but I'm a little stuck on what the actual plot of such a game could be. I ran a Kids on Brooms game earlier this year at my university and ended up really hating the story I was telling. It's hard for me to tell what the stakes should be, since the system has magic but no concrete hit points or anything. I would love some suggestions!

I want to run a proper, dark/pulp fantasy-inspired oldschool dungeon crawl so badly but my players are all weebs with zoomer taste in media so I won't be able to have that kind of campaign for a very long time.
