Been digging around my Tabletop folder, and I've gotten interested in Shadow of the Demon Lord, Psi World, Swordbearer, and Nechronica. Might run one of those with my IRL group.

Oh shit Nechronica. The setting just speaks to me. Ripping parts out of other 'people' yet being cutely creepy is edgy but it sounds like fun. Now I gotta bust out the notebook again, add one more system to the backlog

Don't get me started on the amount of games I'm interested in right now. Every time I start reading one I find 15 more to download and check out. Tabletop gaming is a bad habit.

I'm kind of craving a horror-themed game, something like World of Darkness (either Classic or Chronicles) but I am also open to other settings like Ravenloft or even a little homebrew campaign setting I'm outlining in my head.

I've learned to keep things small and simple, especially at first. This is very true when one is making their own campaign settings.

I get the same feeling as well. I find one thing, and it just leads to another, and another, and another, and... you know what I mean.

I have a good selection of body horror themed RPG's. Two of which are really good, the others need additional work before they can be salvageable.

So in our weekly campaign, we managed to stop a prank at a bank gone horribly wrong, have the smurf and the WW1 vet shoot rabbits, gophers, and an errant tree. Meanwhile, my character went out shopping for ingredients for rabbit stew, and I manage to beat someone's ass with their own motorcycle.

First, here's more Shilling for the most technically competent video yet:

As for games, well, last game had us watch as our Necromancer force (we have a Dread Necro, Boneknight, and Deathmaster) single handedly dismantle about 2 or 3 dungeons so far given the heavy undead theme the arc we're going through is.

People who autistically build their characters the same way autists build MtG decks should be punched repeatedly. I had someone telling me how awesome it would be to use the nightstick-stacking + use Turn Undead to power metamagic feats. I told them if they tried that at my table I would shift from 'neutral, slightly party-aligned GM' to 'murderous GM'.

So basically power gaming and munchkins? I do have plans to play Duskblade, but I also know that I can't do everything at once and I have to figure out what my limits are. I'm mainly limited to short, touch, and medium ranged spells to pair up with melee skills. Then again, the other party members will cover the areas that I can't.

It's one thing to optimize. Hell, I do that. But these convoluted bullshit builds that end in unstoppable murder machines or game-shattering mechanics violations? I hate those with a passion.

If you play a Pathfinder sorcerer with the racial favored class feat for humans, that's one thing (although it breaks the game in other ways). But playing Pun-Pun or the diplomancer builds just irks me.

Learn how beat such characters. Also, such characters are only good for one thing, the rest of the time they're terrible. If you can't do that, you're a terrible GM.

Currently I'm working on each of the races and classes in the City of 7 Seraphs. So far they're not that bad. Typical Akashic/ Psionic classes. Their Shadow Weaver class I find is better than D&D 3.X's version. However, I'm not a fan of their Theurge class yet, others have done it better. It sucks that the book has nothing in terms of a bestiary, but I believe someone else is bringing out one that fits for planar campaigns if I recall correctly.

A few more months there should also be new Mythic books coming out from Legendary Games, it's too bad they didn't bother to address some of the issues with Mythic rules and just made things worse with their own mythic feats. (There's a reason why Mythic Metamagic feats weren't supposed to be a thing.), but I have faith that they will be quality products.

I should mention that City of 7 Seraphs doesn't have the typical artwork found in 3rd party books, a lot of the artwork is pretty high quality so you get what you paid for when it comes to a book that's over 600-pages long.

On to non-Pathfinder games.
I've been trying to read the Invisible Sun books from Monte Cooke Games but just can't find myself doing so. They're going out of their way to be a SJW book.
"As we agree with the growing consensus that “they” can and should be used as a gender-neutral,
singular English language pronoun when one is needed, we have adopted that as the style in our
products. If you see this grammatical construction, it is intentional."
So fuck that system.

Currently now reading Solar Blades and Cosmic Spells, after that probably High Plains Samurai.

I have no problem with this. "He or she" is so clunky, and "they" just sounds better. Is that the only case of political correctness, because I've always wanted to get into Invisible Sun?

Going through various games and game systems for variety and the fact that d20 has a massive fetish for feats and shit. Come on, I don't need a feat to trip some dumb asshole.
You don't, it just exists so you can do it better than others, or in Pathfinders case, so you don't get tripped.

Should be noted that there are a lot of systems that have things similar to feats.

I always told my players that if it didn't sound stupid when explained in-character, I'd allow it. Except nightsticks. Fuck those things.

Nightsticks? Were they pushing for them in a non-modern game?
Nightsticks are a 3.5 item that gives you 4 extra turn undead per day. They are slotless, stackable, and can be used to fuel various other feats, the most notable of which allow you to apply metamagic feats to spells for free.

Nightsticks like what police use are called tonfas in d&d and are mostly unremarkable.
