How do I do a DMPC correctly?

An idea for a campaign I have requires a central NPC of some importance, with the PCs serving as guards and guides for his most notable personage. The idea is to have the NPC carry out the diplomatic aspects of their mission while the players do the dirty work and any and all combat, so maybe even DMPC is the wrong word. I don't know. I just don't want to become another /tg/ horror story.

Also pic related, not how I want my players to feel

Accept this: if your DM is running a PC, something very strange is going on at the table.
And the term DMPC is either a pejorative for DM's pet character, or it's a useless synonym of NPC.

The reason it's DMPC over NPC is that DMPCs have the same thought and effort put into them often times as PCs do, whereas NPCs are usually a bundle of stats with a one-note personality that serves a purpose, nothing more.

DMPCing is hard to do right, and I usually suggest people don't do it, and instead fill gaps in the party with NPC followers the players command in battle but the DM speaks for otherwise. Best way to go about it, and harder to fuck up.
>Accept this: if your DM is running a PC, something very strange is going on at the table.

No matter how much it hurts your feelings, its pretty normal for a lot of groups.

>it's a useless synonym for NPC

Fairly useful, actually. Much quicker than saying "NPC who accumulates progression mechanics et cetera"

It made me laugh harder than it should have.


In my PFgroup, the party was 2 paladins, 1 barbarian, and 1 combat-specced rogue. So I made a wizard/lockpick rogue, who was specialized in fighting humanoids. The party thought he was pretty neat, so when he got geeked by a bunch of wights, they ressed him, and put him on "spy network" duty.

How do you think elves dirty talk?
I'm going to propose the standard is a lot of hard like an oak or dick = tree stuff. But I'm sure elves get tired of that after hundreds of years, they must say some weird shit.

Why is this so hilarious?

You don't like these sorts of formal gatherings- bunch of glorified historical reenacters sitting around in the middle of the desert eating sand-caked BBQ and drinking lukewarm soda and beer is one thing, but this place has a thirty foot buffet and its centerpiece is an ice sculpture. Of a Sherman.

You are Commander Russells of the M26E1 Pershing Heavy Tank “Black Jack” and you're a bit uncomfortable with this level of decadence. Not so much the buffet- you'll get to that in a bit- but the ice sculpture and the monkeysuits moving through the crowd delivering drinks and appetizers- and those are finger sandwiches shaped like casemated tank destroyers.

The good news is that there's a lot of familiar faces- in fact more tank commanders in one place than you've probably seen in your life- Commanders from across the continent. Traveling in tanking is difficult and expensive- you see East Coast commanders fairly rarely. And then there's a few you don't even recognize.

And you still haven't the foggiest idea why you're here.

>Pick a group of old friends- might as well make the best of this.
>Who are the new people?
>Stick with Miho- let them come to you.
>Stick with the buffet- its never done you wrong before.

Electric damage can fuck up drones/vehicles pretty well. There's an electric damage anti-vehicle rocket you can use, too.
Never mind. I just looked up the specs for the 4e Citymaster.

36 dice to resist means it's basically unstoppable.

Anima on cohesive art style:

SOME models look like they go together, but some just have wonky shit that steps outside the bounds of what you'd call design. some models also have utter shit poses: i think her name is Kumomi? i won't deign to spell it right.

alot of anima's church/empire humans are just boring shit...

however, i bought their mini's when they first came out. about 1 in 6 mini's they make is either well posed or has an interesting sculpt. especially earlier on. i own Harod, JiangPao, and Sanosuke for those reasons. i want Nero and Xavier's models because noble swords, well posed.
i have a Legacy of Solomon. if you like mechas or armor, go get one. it is fuckign cool.
...some of the empire gals look in-step

Erika has a damn fun pose. someone needs to convert that with something underneath her hammer.

and i'll never find out what Anna Never is sup[posed to be doing. trolling? cheering her team on? examining an art piece.
damn, is she happy while doing...whatever she's doing.
>talking shit on based church
Literally fucking heresy.
Also mechas are by far the coolest thing in the minirange, followed by armored guys and zombies.
Also anna is literally "trolling" the shit out of the most powerful human walking the land in gaia. And having fun not being the empress.

sorry. we have stuff like the shield maid, the wingfoot child carrier...then we have gems like Nero and Xavier. Raziel, also cool

as a faction in game, they are very sweet. but who plays Anima Tactics when you can just buy and collect the cool mini's and give the others the finger?

Damien reminds me of Cassern. and what up with Justina and Tessarossa when we have modest saint gals who can heal your ass and look more church-y

like anon said....inconsistent design.

also: based anna. need to get one of her too....
>features manga-like art
I'm still trying to figure out how the fuck does that make sense. While the art is kinda Japanesey in a Final Fantasy sense, the artstyles used are mostly Korean-like.

Use OOC and ask someone for help on how to play. People will almost always help you get a grip of the game if you're polite about it, just don't reveal too much in-round information in OOC.

Speak of the devil

It's not nice to lie about things you don't know about, since Gandalf left on good terms with Numnums

You're prolly thinking of that Kromkar dude, who left the moment he heard Gordon got unbanned

Also, please stop shitting up perfectly good filename threads with irrelevant lewd images and pointless ergotism

Veyveyr was the one who left when Gordon got unbanned and later modded, Kromkar was in all accounts a very poor admin, and he just sort of disappeared.
You should remove the medical jobs as well.
Doesn't seem like anyone really plays it, people only go in for the medical hardsuit, no one ever goes out to get injured people, and late game, it end up just being a cloner that' public access anyways.

Is a monster defined only by its actions?

Or by its nature?
28 replies and 6 images omitted. Click here to view.
Nature begets action, anon.
Existence before essence, anon.
I think DFRPG puts it best. Something like 'monsters can't defy their nature'.
Or more accurately "a monster is something that can't defy their nature". So that means people, humans, can fall into this.
But what if they're nature isn't vicious? I mean arguably anyone who can't defy their nature is detrimental to society as a whole I guess but I don't think I'd call sheep monsters.

For real though, minor magic items are nice. A set of beads that explode on contact with water for minor damage (2d6 or something), a set of shoes that give you +5 movement speed, a belt that makes you weigh 50 lbs less, things like that could be useful without directly being of immediate use.
MY players would collect the farts to make a massive methane bomb. I like seeing that kind of stuff though, so I am going to now have that be the next thing they find as the centerpiece of some treasure horde.

My friends play pathfinder and they want it to stay that way.

How can i convince them that 5e is better?
All the stuff you listed is possibly even more useful than what I was suggesting.

I'm talking, like, a plate that shatters when you say a magic word and then puts itself back together once per day, or a cast of a hand that can be thrown to deal 1d4+1 unarmed damage which then returns to the thrower.
A throwing fist? That sounds fucking rad.

It's beautiful, but the pragmatic part of me thinks that a Raspberry Pi, 20 minutes of Python code and a directory full of maps would work better.
why not use this

that seems a bit small for everybody to see properly and not be the size of a crate

For a roleplay, not really.
For a side scrolling hack&slash, it might work wonders.

I've never actually played Hotline Miami but something about this fan Conspiracy makes me think it has to do with it. Masks and surreality and violence and stuff. Is it at all relevant to your question?
I dunno about that, but if they were ever to do an Innocents supplement again, I'd love a separate chapter with mini-suggestions on what children-turned-supernatural's lives are like. Werewolves, I imagine, welcome the chance to get a pack member in so young, so that they can be raised a werewolf instead of being thrust into it at an older age. Vampires and Prometheans, creating an unaging, undead child is one of the cruelest curses imaginable. The sad fact of the Lost is that most children just don't make it back. The don't have enough of an identity to escape the Fae. More worrisome still is the disproportionate number of those that do make it back that join Summer...
Do mages raise their kids to be mages? I don't know anything about mage.
I can really only speak about Awakening, but there have been attempts - all fruitless - to produce, well, true-breeding Mages. But the Supernal seems to still pick them at random. A child Mage would be treated as any other, I assume. Perhaps mentored a little more strictly.
Awakening isn't a hereditary thing. Mostly. There are proximi families who have it happen more often than usual I think but that's it.

I'm looking to run a S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game for some of my players and I'm trying to find a good system for it. I've checked out the homebrew on 1d4chan, I can't seem to be able to download STALKER the RPG, and I have a copy of STALKER the SciFi Roleplaying Game. I was also thinking of using Savage Worlds or CoC. I'm looking for a game that blends horror/survival with combat. Are there any other systems that would work/you would recommend?

Also if someone has a pdf of STALKER the RPG I would be grateful for a copy.

Okay makes sense and sounds good/simple. How did you do character creation? Straight out of DH or homebrew?
Cheeki Breeki
Goddamn that is amazing. I think I might have a theme song for the game if things become retarded/murderhobo.
Slightly modified DH careers with liberal use of elite advances, reflavoring skills to fit the real world/Zone, and slowing down xp gain.

I think an Only War system that would allow more freedom in advancement would be better but didn't have time to work on it due to school.

Take a look at this google docs:


I drew some inspiration from it even though I didn't use too much from it. I'll dig around and see if I can't find the document I made for a reference in my old files and post it later, but now it's almost 3 and I need sleep.
Fair enough, same here. Thanks for all the help man.

How would you DM a Hotline Miami Rpg, /tg/?
14 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
If you mean a "Hotline Miami" game from the mechanical standpoint of what can be best described as a fever-dream rampage, then I don't think any system can accurately depict that. Maybe Savage Worlds like said earlier, where one hit kills are for everyone, not just players.

If you meant "Hotline Miami" game like a fever-dream mixed with conspiracy theory layered on drugs? Personally, not a huge fan of HM's story, but it might be kind of cool.
I remember someone making a Conspiracy loosely based on this game for Hunter: the Vigil. I could try that, I guess.

look for Violence: A Game of Egregrious Bloodshed or something to that effect

it's not a real game and doesn't deserve to be because you play as a sick fucking lunatic piece of shit breaking into homes and killing helpless people or people who fight back out of desperation. there's no dodge skills and no health levels, only death and accuracy

meaning, you play Hotline Miami

it's probably not playable since the entire thing was a joke by a game author

but you're welcome to look at it and realize how playing a Hotline Miami game would be a bad idea
