No partner , the logic here is to drop a nuke(or in Raxon's example a moon) that only kills the enemy team...which is technically modern warfare 3 multiplayer's nuke...

Dropping a moon is reserved for killing mockingbirds only.

Digo 5th Apr 2014, 11:28 AM edit delete reply
There was a really old conspiracy game I ran where the PCs got a hold of a nuke. I was pretty horrified over what they were going to do with it.

Thankfully they detonated it underground. In the BBEG's bomb bunker. No, the BBEG never saw it coming.

Actually it's more: What would Night Sage Do? yes I know you haven't heard of me, but hear me out real quick.

My friends call me a special kind of chaos. I fit more closely with "chaotic neutral" than any other alignment, but my friends say "even that doesn't properly describe you."

They went on and explained why "You are capable of jumping from true neutral, to chaotic good, down to chaotic good, all the way over to lawful good, and down to natural evil. You are all over the place, that in any moment in time, any one of the 9 alignments can best describe you."

Yay for me I guess. And that is the quote of my friends verbatim. They marked me with the 10th, unknown alignment "Jumping chaos..." Description: Any of the other nine alignments can be used at any given time.

They are even going to allow me to construct a D&D character with said alignment too... YAY!!!

I'd say it's more like "what would Quantumturnip do?", Night Sage. You've got nothing on a moodswinger like me. How much of a moodswinger am I, you ask? Why, enough to undergo a complete personality change whenever it happens, which is regularly. It's bad enough that I once thought I had multiple personalities. I've been all the alignments in the space of an hour. That's right, 9 swings in the course of an hour. Even now, when I've gotten it more or less under control, I tend to have a swing every hour. On a good day.

mycroftxxx 7th Apr 2014, 10:43 AM edit delete reply
If everyone's doing this, "What would mycroftxxx do" is actually predictable. Shoot First. While D20 rules don't give the advantage overwhelmingly to the first attacker as much as the real world does, a surprise round is a surprise round. I tend to start working out scenarios as soon as violence becomes an option if the odds aren't in my favor, and as soon as more eventualities end in violence than not, I tend to attack.

This tends to confuse my teammates since they will have no _idea_ why I just shot the pregnant teenager in her gravid belly (as an example: her unborn child was an incredibly powerful homicidal psychic - good reasons for everything, but we had been following the trail of corpses it left. I chose to shoot while talking because the mother wasn't appearing to want to surrender to us immediately, and I didn't think we'ld get a warning.). But, my choices tend to be backed by Word of God later, so I get away with it.

Also, monologuing or gloating. No strategy there, I'm just allergic to it and immediately attack. That one always surprises GM's. leftoversoup.com/archive.php?num=421
Digo 7th Apr 2014, 1:06 PM edit delete reply
My favorite counter to the "Shoot villain while monologuing" was from a D&D adventure where the BBEG's second in command monologued to the PCs about why they can't stop the BBEG by fighting him head on.

The PCs killed him in mid-sentence and rescued the prisoner from the basement. The prisoner asked if the PCs managed to iterrogate the commander who knew the BBEG's weakness.

Oops. :3

So now we're doing the final battle the hard way...

Hello, pony I've never seen before.

Fun Fact: durring Discord's rule he implanted a law soooo deep in the legal system of Equestria that even Celestia's most powerful bureaucromancers have been unable to remove it.

It requires that everypony who has facial hair must have a permit written on a piece of gingerbread.

The crazy thing is that the penlty for not having a permit is becoming a pony. Wierd huh?

I wonder if any players out there do a lot of teamwork in combat? Or does your adventuring party just do their own thing on the battlefield?

My group rarely works together. They seem to have this notion that a round spent not swinging a weapon is a round wasted. When I'm a player, I love teamwork. I always play a spellcaster type that specializes in either team buff or battlefield control to help the other PCs win the fight.

But do I get any credit for helping? Nope, I just get chastised for having zero kills in the fight. 9_9

One of my most recent characters is almost exclusively support, even though by swapping just a few feats around he could have been insanely overpowered in combat. As it is, I prefer to have one or two people that I coordinate with at a time (generally two), and our sub-party tends to be the one getting all the real work done, including damage even though we've only got one real damage dealer.
Morathor 5th Apr 2014, 11:27 AM edit delete reply
Teamwork, huh... does standing on the back of a fallen comrade to gain a height advantage count?

My current and most active group has a couple of characters who do group buffs (a rogue with Bless as a spell like ability, a ranger who can share some of his FE bonus with the rest of the party). But we don't really have any sort of coordination or plan. Honestly I don't think I've ever been in a group that had actual team strategies. People just act on their own initiative. Sometimes that initiative involves coming to the aid of another party member who got in over their head, but aside from that...

My form of support is more along the lines of 'Look at me, I'm a distraction!" combined with a high AC to tank the attacks, thereby keeping the enemy away from my friends.

Which isn't to say that I'm not going to do my best to crush the guys attacking me, I just want to keep them from hurting my team.
Disloyal Subject 6th Apr 2014, 3:06 AM edit delete reply
Whenever I cheese a character beyond sanity, I make it a support character. Playing a selfish cheese-a-tron just isn't fun, and my way's more effective anyway - I'd rather give the whole party's weapons +2, Keen, Flaming Burst, and Charging for a turn than just rage, charge, and hope for a hit. And that's just casting - I have dedicated martial defense builds that boosted my AC and an adjacent ally or two's... though it wouldn't have worked so well if I'd rolled poorer stats.

Depending on my character's personality, I usually try that. When it inevitably fails, I charge screaming into battle and roll for intimidate. Yay for circumstance bonuses from splattering a kobold all over oneself with a critical hit on a charge!

Attack Pattern Luna implies a crescent formation, possibly one intended to wax full when the opportunity comes to envelop a key position or critical opponent.

And Diamond Tiara is still being entertaining as DM. Well done. Funny to see that Redheart's comment about acceptable collateral (from last strip) is no longer such an ethically questionable positions. DD's awestruck appearance after Chrysalis reveals herself in a particularly well chosen panel. Last observation: "You and what army?" should probably go down on a list of things you never say in an rpg, ranked somewhere between, "What's the worst that could happen?" and, "Don't worry; we'll be fine as long as I roll higher than a 1."

A friend of mine announced that he's starting up a local D&D game. I'm getting back into a local game, huzzah! Gonna bring back my wizard Sparks with his pony familiar.

DM: Hey, guys, what did I miss? Wait, why are you packing up?
Redheart: We finished the session. Your sister was a great DM.
DM: Wait, what!? Well, as long as she kept to the notes, I guess it's alri-
Derpy: The lich invited us inside for the wedding, but turned out to be the queen of the dark fairies. Then we fought an army and it was awesome.
Daring Do: Yeah, no railroading, no contrived moral dilemmas, no boss that escaped even when you had killed him 3 times already. Just a good old fashioned slugfest.
Cheerilee: You should collaborate with her more often. Anyways, later!
DM: ...But I had the perfect moral contrivance prepared for this session...

The specific show is Wannemacher in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Biannual, and boasting status as the largest gun show in the US.

I've always wanted to go to a gun show, just to see how full of stupid rednecks they are.

Not very full cause gun shows are way over priced, us rednecks get our guns at swap meets and such...

Not all shows are overpriced. Besides, there's more than just guns at a good show. I got a zombie saw for kicks, but I also got some gorgeous carved shells for the girls back home, and a bit of tasteful jewelry for them. My Christmas shopping is done.

Yes, firearms are overpriced, but you can find some good deals on other things. I got myself a nice bolt action pen, made from machined steel. Plastic and cheap pens tend to... fare poorly in my pockets. I got a new flashlight, always a good thing to carry. I got an interesting walking stick, a small belt knife, a dex trainter, and, of course, an overpriced funnel cake.

The funnel cake was oh so satisfying, though. Something sweet after lugging around a heavy pack for seven hours, and zigzagging your way through thirteen acres of booths? Yes please!

As a gun owner, redneck, non genius, and frequent attendee. I can tell you that you will find that that gun shows are a lot like Gaming/Anime/Comic/Sci-Fi cons.

Except everyone bathes, uses deoderant, doesn't hit on people, skeeve, make other people uncomfortable by doing weird/strange/creepy stuff for attention, or any of the other really screwed up behavior you get at cons.

It's exactly like a big flea market. Except people are selling guns. Yes, with background checks.

Just out of curiosity will anyone besides myself be attending PAX East this year? I mean it is this coming weekend.

Nope, sorry. The warden found the hole and moved me to a different cell. It will take at least six months to make a new one.
