Is it just me? Look, I don't want to get tagged as some sort of green ink merchant. The sort of person that stands on street corners advising all comers to wear a tinfoil hat to stop the CIA from controlling your mind but...

Some games, just a few. The gameplay is great, neat mechanic, nice theme but...

Somehow there is just something, perhaps one action or a point you always reach that just niggles and niggles and niggles because, in the context of the theme, it is just not logical. And it gets worse over time. It builds with every play. One day you blurt it out and are ignored. Then suddenly people don't want to play this game with you. They are afraid you are going to start banging on about the same old point over and over again.

Are you following me?

Let me explain by way of an example. Then please, add more, show me I am not alone. wow

You are supposed to be an animal breeder. If you have, say, four rabbits, from which you could most likely breed many more rabbits, you get four medals. If you get one of each animal, from which you could breed nothing, you get five medals.

Defending the Farmstead

Human 1: You'd better keep an eye out for those Tritons from that mountain up there, and the Ghouls from those neighbouring woods.

Human 2: Sure. Will do. Did the boss tell us to look out for anything else?

Human 1: Well, he did mention the flying dwarves.

Human 2: Yeah, right. Stop pissing about, Derek.

Human 1: No, seriously. Flying dwarves, he said. Apparently they can attack us from anywhere.

Human 2: What do you think this is? A circus? We're all struggling for our lives on this tiny island, and you're on about bloody flying dwarves again. Do you think they've got a catapult or something?

Four dwarves fall from the sky and slaughter the bickering humans

Dawrf 1: Right, that's that - let's reorganise and be on the lookout for those mounted giants.

We used to play the heck out of this game years ago and absolutely loved it when doing long campaigns. At the height of this game we had a campaign last over 2 years with a good 12-14 people... it was a blast.

But something that always bugged me about this game was a rule about enemies in combat... Basically, if you are unaware. Necromunda is a small scale battle putting gang against gang, with a typical game having maybe 6-10 team members.

One of the rules states that when shooting, you need to shoot at the enemy model that is the closest threat to you. (forgive me by not giving exact quotes, this has been years since I have played).

The first time this problem occured I remember very well, one of my gang members was being run down by two enemies. One of them was a weaker lower leveled character with a pistol and the other was an experienced gang member with a heavy bolter.

Basically, if I was to be hit by the guy with the pistol I'd have been fine... if I'd have been hit by the guy with the heavy bolter I'd have died... So I decided to take a shot at the heavy bolter and the other player disputed it, saying that the guy with the pistol was CLOSER to me (let's say for the sake of argument that the guy with the pistol was 8" from me, and the guy with the heavy bolter was 10" from me).

I argued that there is no way I'm going to shoot at the weak guy with the pistol and the bad aim because I knew the heavy bolter guy was a bigger threat to me.

Anyhow, that rule always bugged me. I don't recall the outcome of that specific instance, I think I had to roll a leadership test or something to see I was able to take the alternate shot.

I do recall after that specific game we made a house rule allowing you to shoot at the biggest threat, not the closest threat... It made more sense.

D.

Confederate Officer: Nope. We retreat. Despite our excellent battlefield position we just can't risk losing a seventh squad.

- I agree, Llewellyn.
- So what do we do?
- I dunno. You got any bright ideas?

(deep silence...)

- Yes! I know! Let's stack the dolmen on top of eachother! That way we only use the ground once!
- *stares in awe*


A dolmen is a complete structure comprising several megaliths. See for example [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fileaulnabrone.jpg]here[/url] or here. So why is it that in this game, I am asked to put several of these rickety things on top of eachother?

Yes, it's another virtual game conversation...

Tonight we are a fly on the wall inside the Lamb & Flag Inn in Caylus. Gary Green, a brickie and general labourer, has his feet up on the bar and is halfway through his fifth pint of cloudy ale, when in walks Ricky Red.

RR: Evening, Gary

GG: Alrigh' Rick.

RR: How's the job these days?

GG: Not bad. You heard that the boss of the Orange company ran out of building jobs?

RR: Yeah. It's Olly I feel sorry for. He's a family to feed and he's not even being put out to work.

GG: Of course this meant everyone working for the Green and Red companies started earning two Generic Gaming Cash Units per job, rather than one. Betcha wish you hadn't come down the pub now.

RR: Er...wait a minute, now. There was no market and an employment surplus, and wages doubled?!

GG: Well, I say 'doubled'. I got into Gordon's office last week, and he says to me: "Gary, I'm going to pay you normal rates to spend the foreseeable future in the pub." Well, I had to check my calendar to see if it wasn't April the first.

RR: Hang on a cotton-picking minute. While I've been slogging my arse off building the dungeons on that godforsaken castle, you've been getting paid a sound weekly wage to sit here getting pissed?

GG: Aye, that's about the shape of it. The beauty of it was that, after I'd got a week's worth of drinking under my belt, Gordon halved the wages of all the other workers. They're now earning as much as they did before Orange went under.

RR: So...your company has a worker shortage and one equally strong rival, and they've decided to cut wages on the basis that you're sitting getting sloshed?

GG: Apparently, yes.

RR: Well, bugger me. How do I get onto this scheme?

GG: I'm sorry, you can't. Not unless Olly Orange comes and sits down at the bar here. And the devilish irony is that when your two businesses form this oblique connection, suddenly Gordon will lose all the benefits of me sitting here.

RR: Hang on - isn't this how the Mexican economy actually works?

This is a kid's game so maybe it doesn't have to make sense but why is there a badger in my bedroom unpacking my suitcases? surprise

A cat or dog or bunny - animals that we would actually let in our house - those I would understand.

On top of all this, it appears that this badger has an underwear obsession. Creepy! shake

Quote:
The forest is filled with all sorts of Monsters. They watched and waited as you built your Castle and trained your soldiers, but now they’ve gathered their army and are marching out of the woods.


Monster: "Hmm what are those humans doing? Why it appears they are building a castle! This is perfect not only are the currently undefended, they are also distracted. Lets wait and see what they do next."

-Later-

Monster: "Now it appears they are training troops! So they must not have anyone to man the beautiful defensive towers they just built. Lets wait for a bit, this seems interesting."

-Later-

Monster: "Ahhh I thought so. The humans built a castle and manned it with highly trained soldiers! We should have seen this coming. Get em boys!"

Well, you are building a railroad. And where would you like to build your stations?
Somewhere your railroad has laid it's tracks? redtrain
surprise Wrong.
A city or town perhaps? whitetrain
blush Nope.
Somewhere close to the locomotive? bluetrain
Not allowed.

Railroad stations are build somewhere in the open and then you just wait and pray a train going to be build there to pick up the passengers.
whistle Good thing you are allowed to (re)move your useless stations to another empty spot.

ACTUAL CONVERSATION.

Game Master: You still need to choose your Alignment.

Newbie Player: Okay, I'm gonna be Chaotic Good.

Game Master: Thieves can't be Chaotic Good.

Newbie Player: You told me Robin Hood was an example of Chaotic Good. He was a thief, wasn't he?

Other Experienced Player: Choose Lawful Neutral. Thieves can't be good, it's not allowed. LN is the most "good" alignment you're allowed.

Newbie Player (consults book): Lawful Neutral means someone who scrupulously obeys the laws of society without any other moral concerns?

GM & OEP together: Yes, exactly.

Newbie Player: By stealing, backstabbing, and breaking and entering?????

(This was actually the wrong version of D&D, but I can't find the correct one...)
