Howdy neighbor! I have a little place between Bastrop and Lockhart for when I need to get out of Houston.I have been a supporter for some time and appreciate everything you do, John! I am in Central Texas (USA). In a small down called San Marcos, nestled between Austin and San Antonio.
Howdy, howdy Jason! Thinking about challenges for deities, three inspirations came to mind:Jason from Brooklyn, NY. Been GMing and playing in all sorts of games off and on since 1989 or so. Right now I play in a 5e and a CoC campaign and I GM a game called Godbound. Coming up with fun challenges for PCs with god-powers is definitely a challenge in and of itself so I'm always looking for ideas and help!
First of all, welcome, Jason!... and I GM a game called Godbound. Coming up with fun challenges for PCs with god-powers is definitely a challenge in and of itself so I'm always looking for ideas and help!
Oh wow I haven't played Populous in forever That's a great reminder. I'm totally going to check out those other resources as well. I consume content pretty rabidly and if I get even 2 or 3 good ideas from a book I consider it well worth the time!Kind of vague and abstract, but getting the free Dawn of Worlds PDF and watching some playthrough videos of Populous might give you some ideas.
Hi Stephan! Thanks so much for all of your thoughts! No way I could reply to them all inline here butFirst of all, welcome, Jason!
I absolutely love this! They've just finished the first leg of their campaign and are going to be traveling to an unfamiliar region of the world to confront their first dire apocalypse. This suggestion will be perfectly on theme for what's in store.I loved the sessions the most where the PCs learned about their powers and how to use them and how to enhance them and the shock in their faces when they did something over the top they hadn't actually intended. Control is the key word. It is so much power that they constantly need to power-down while knowing that they have abilities that could destroy worlds.
Yeah this is more or less their scenario. This is a group that is simultaneously playing through Curse of Strahd and Masks of Nyarlahothep alongside this (I don't GM those though), so having the ability to actually effect change at their will has been liberating and fun to play through, and while the ruleset does come with limits, they're pretty loose and I even wave those from time to time.I would completely dump the rules system for this. I would want them to be imagining that they could do everything in their sphere of competence.
Thank you for your answer! The message was actually only for testing if everything works fine Because I am doing a work placement at Jochen's office, that's why I am testing things out at the moment hahahaWelcome! If you have any question, don't hesitate to ask. I'm more than happy to answer.
Seeing your name, are you by any chance related to Jochen?
You could with me, but as of End of October last year there were 81% native English speakers and only 9% native German speakers in the forum (based on their introductions here). It could have changed since then, but I doubt it was in our favor. Thus, let's continue in English.Und gerade habe ich gesehen, dass ich auch auf Deutsch hätte schreiben können hahaha
