    Yeah insanely powerful stuff is pretty boring I think. It's more rewarding to work with less and feel accomplishment, isn't it?

    I stopped playing DnD a while ago. Now I just play games based on DnD rules(Like KoTOR) and this nifty little game called Inquisitor, based on the 40k universe from Games Workshop.

    How do you play it?
    It's like, there's a board and you move on it. And then when there is a battle you can only move during your turn and stuff like that. It seemed kinda cheap though because the people who ran towards the monsters always got the shit hammered out of them by something called attack of opportunity whereas the people who let the monsters come to them got like 5 of those. I don't understand why the person you swing at gets the first hit, but whatever.

    But there was this version of the game I did want to play but no one played it. It's called D20 and it sounds like fun, yet I don't know anyone who plays it.
    People acctually play like this?? Thats no fun.

    Me and some friends of mine play and its nothing like this. We do roleplay and there is a lot of dice involved but we try to do as much as we can out of everything we got. Like this:

    Insted of just saying: Okay, my cleric, which isnt the fastest spoon in the cabinet, attackes the little skeleton to the left.

    Roll d20: 14

    A hit. Damage.

    Roll d8: 4

    the skeleton gets a hit for 4hp but doesnt die.

    We do it like this:

    Pwent(, the name of the char,) runs trough the room, thundering towards the skeleton to the left of the door and hoists his hammer over his head to build momentum and uses all his powers to crash that hammer into the skeleton ---waits for roll, d20, 14.. the GM takes over--- the hammer goes flying through the air and hits the skeleton with ---- waits for roll, d8, 4 --- great force and shatters his left arm, but the poor skeleton is still alive and staggers on.

    Then it goes over to the next player.

    Its great fun, as long as you have a decent GM and good friends sitting with you.

    d20= dice20=20 sided die.
    the same goes for d8.
    Please Google it! before asking!

    This site had been cheesed by Mozzy!

    Inquisitor was made for cinematic scenes like that. It involves shrapnel, explosions, dropping/throwing weapons, losing body parts,looting corpses, insanity, etc. The level of detail is astounding, especially if your GM is good.

    D&D can be just as fun as any game as long as you have the following:

    Good GM
    Friends who play the game...

    You would not believe some of the insane stuff we did
    Example: The group was looting a ship before it reached its destination and me and a single friend went ahead of the group and got "predibses" and took about 50% of the loot before the rest of the party got any.

    My philosophy as a DM is that if you're going to be insanely powerful, you're going to have to fight some insanely powerful enemies.


    I love playing powerful characters, but I love being challenged too.
