    I am actually working on a horror one-shot right now! I'm having a hard time making the adventure creepy enough though. It's about a man in the woods who steals women at night and takes some of there body and skin, stitching them together to make perfect dolls (flesh golems).

    posted a message on [offline][Columbus][OH] Feeler post of game.

    I was wondering how many people in the Columbus area would want to Start a homebrew game!

    A few things though:

    I am a newer DM so keep that in mind.

    You will have to meet me at a local spot to be interviewed before I invite you into my home to play, Just for my safety.

    Understand that I am a student so the week of Midterms and Finals we probably won't meet.

    It will most likely be on weekends.

    Anyone feel free to DM me or comment on here~

    posted a message on I wanted to share Darcie's Backstory!

    I'm very proud of this backstory because it's not a sad one, nothing wrong with sad backstories I just prefer not to make them.

    If anyone has any comments I would love to hear them!


     

    No one quite knew where the bard Darcie Hayway was from. To the people of the north she would say she was from the south and to the people of the south, the north.

    But she knew.

    She grew up on a small farm, out in the vast nowhere. Her father plowed the land and her mother sewed. The only people who came around were to pick up the hay and bring it out of the vast nowhere and into another world.

    No one came around until him.

    He, with the blue eyes and blonde hair, was strolling by the farm while whistling a tune. Darcie, as brave as a 12-year-old could be, Belted from the porch.

    “Hey you!”

    The man stopped whistling and gazed at her.

    “Yes?”

    Darcie sprinted down the steps of the porch and down the path leading to the road. She halted a few feet away.

    “Who are you?”

    “Who am I? Why should I tell you little girl?” His lips curled into a smirk.

    “Because I won’t tell you mine until I know yours! It’s not lady like.” She smirked right back.

    The man let out a laugh “Fine then, I’m John the bard. And you are?”

    She broke into a smile “I’m Darcie! Want to stay for dinner?”

    ~

    At first Mr. Hayman was highly against the bard staying for dinner, but he could never say no to Darcie when she cried. After the meal, John sang a song and his played guitar to thank them for the food.

    Darcie, from the moment the first notes were played, was enthralled in the art. The way his fingers swept across the instrument. The feeling that was put into his voice as he sang. She soaked in every aspect of it, never blinking for she might miss something. He finished his song of thanks with a smile.

    “How was it little Darcie”

    She could only say one thing.

    “Teach me!”

    ~

    That night turned into two weeks. In the mornings, John would help Mr. Hayman with things around the house, Patching the roof, Painting the porch, fixing the door, odd jobs to earn his stay. But in the afternoons, he would teach Darcie how to sing and play.

    Singing came naturally to the young girl and it was beautiful singing at that. Guitar however, was much trickier. Her fingers would land just a second too late. This frustrated her to no end.

    “Don’t give up.” John would tell her, “Never give up. There is magic in you, just as in me, and your magic will manifest itself through music.”

    posted a message on How do you handle rude players?
    Quote from AaronOfBarbaria >>

    In my experience with "rude players" (which I put in quotes because what is or isn't rude is subjective to each group, their desired style of play, and sense of humor), I have found that the best thing to do is be upfront and clear about what problem you are having with their behavior.

    To bend that to your example: When a player is wanting to slit the throats of their party members, I wouldn't just say "No, you can't." I would ask the group if that's how they want to play this campaign (which I've learned to do before ever starting a session so that people looking for something other than what everyone else at the table is after don't have their, or my, time and effort wasted). If the group are all okay with it, then play proceeds and I adjudicate the rules as fairly as possible (stealth checks vs. perception, attack rolls, damage, and so forth - rather than "okay, your throat is slit and you die"). And if everyone's not cool with it, that's when I say "That won't be allowed because it would disrupt the experience that everybody (else) is looking for."

    Best case scenario is that the player understands they can't have their fun be at the expense of other people at the table and play continues without further issue. Worst case scenario is that the player insists on being disruptive - and then a simple "You aren't fitting in with this table, so you should find a different one to play with" is all that is needed.

    But one thing that I have seen compound problems and constantly fail to achieve anything remotely like the desired effect is to address a disruptive player via the game itself - it always ends up with the disruptive player thinking the DM is being a jerk, rather than being aware that their own behavior was out of line for the table.

     

     

    This is actually really helpful! I love the idea of making him do all the rolls.

    Thank you for responding!

    posted a message on How do you handle rude players?

    So, a few days ago a went to a shop to DM a one-shot and long story short got an extremely rude person in my game who was just wanting to kill.

    He did many things to disrupt the game, like tried to slit the parties throats in their sleep, but one thing above all made me actually angry.

    After I told him 'No you can not slit their throats, you are not evil' he started playing a game on his phone and ignoring me unless I was attacking him or it was his turn.

    I have only had kind people in my games so I was taken back by this.

     

    Obviously this is an extreme case but it made me realize that I don't know what to do about rude players.

    Anyone have advice that they could share? I would welcome it.

     

    Thank you

    Well Well Well, your party sounds amazing to cause some havoc.

    How do you feel about homebrew worlds and can I add a player?

    posted a message on How hombrew do you take things?

    As a newer GM I have a simple question I would like to pose:

    How homebrew do you take things?

    I ask this because I want to run my own homebrew campaign but I feel I need to change some things. For example, I want to make my own pantheon of gods because they are extremely important but I have had people tell me that doing so will 'take away the essence that is the world of Dungeons and Dragons.'
