Subject: Bias

Really doesn't that mean they are 8 Up, 8 Down.. Doesn't that mean there more neutral about you than don't like you?

Topic: Loaded Dice #31: Funny is in the Eye of the Beholder
Subject: I for one think the art is fine...

I think the artwork is fine for the story so far. I for one am looking forward to the moment that all the players have to work together to overcome an obsticle that no player can overcome by themselves. I'm sure when the players all have to throw in on a desperate fight or work together to solve a puzzle they will be all smiles till the next fight.

Topic: Loaded Dice: Strip #20
Subject: Congradulations on #20!!

In our group everybody at one point has spoken a thought in front of the Game Master. Most of the time it doesn't effect the group. Occasionally however we do have players that taunt the gm for some insane reason.

We had a middle earth based rolemaster game going on about the same time that "Fellowship of the Ring" came out. The line 'They have a cave troll!' became quite common. (some times cave troll was substituted for something else appropriate to the line.)

The GM grew tired of the quote and finally through down the guantlet and said the next person that utters that line will have one too. Sure enough a session or two down the line somebody said the line and our opponents gained a cave troll and a second one to boot.

Topic: Loaded Dice #18: Chill Out!
Subject: What is the point of a Pun?

What is a pun if not the penultimate way to punish your fellow players?

Seriously, bad puns are the most basic blocks of RPG humor. No Game is complete without at least one bad pun and an equally bad movie reference.

Topic: Loaded Dice #16: Just Playing my Character (part two)
Subject: Conflic of intrests...

When players conflict it can be a hassle. As someone stated above, the party can split up, and the cleric can continue to do what his background dictates. The problem becomes how survivable is a party without that player. Worst case here is that if the pc decides to continue and the cleric gets himself killed, the party is then trapped in a dungeon with lots of undead and no healing or turning. A very bad situation.

A compromise can be the best solution. What is best for the party that also will satisfy the needs of the character. Obviously here the priest has forgotten the primary focus of the party being here is to wait out the storm. 'A let's just get through this and you can notify your temple in the next town we pass through may have sufficed.'

Failing these.. The B.A. Barachus (A-team) plan could work too..(knock him out and drag him Back to a safe area) but... 'I pity the fool!'

Topic: Loaded Dice#15: Just Playing my Character (part one)
Subject: Another great moment in 'Playing my character'..

One of the most remembered lines of any of my characters was in a star wars game.

My character... A smuggler (later turned Jedi) named Darren.. Was hired by rebel insurgents to take a covert ops operative (we only knew him by Jed) deep into imperial space where he was supposed to deliver critical information critical to the resistance there. We were Not fully informed before the mission started that the planet we were heading to was one of the places the imperial storm commandoes trained at.

When we Arrived we got into a rather nasty fire fight. We were spotted when landing and a group of sniper storm commandos had taken positions around the landing zone.

They waited patiently for us to shut down the ship, force fields and guns, and as we departed the ship. Jed took the first shot, a fatal blow to the head and an extended fire fight started up.

News of the fire fight made it to the rebel's and they came to our aid as we had managed to hold the assult long enough to start back up the shields and bring out some heavier weapons. Upon arriving we greeted the rebels, and the female commander came up to Darren and introduced herself and asked where Jed was.

I looked at my fellow players and apologized.

Darren turned to the young commander, "Jed? Jed's dead, baby!"

She was jed's wife. Things whent down hill.

Subject: When whole parties play there characters...

This is one of the best strips yet.

Story time!

One of the funniest moments in gaming for me was when I played in a Dark Ages vampire game where we all started knowing that we were supposed to become vampires..

So the gm got this great idea to have us all roll up humans that would be turned in the first couple of episodes.

After 6 or so sessions of the PC's banding together to fight against all things going bump in the night.. It had become quite clear that none of the characters wanted to become vampires so the gm was left to have to re-write the campaign for humans vs. Dark ages villans.

Topic: Loaded Dice #9: the Gate
Subject: Hi-mit-su!

--Where do you pack a ten foot pole anyway?

In a couple of groups I have gamed with - the best answer I could expect for that particular question is, "It's a secret!"

Subject: Maybe you should have brought the Squirrel!

It could have just been a dead squirrel, which may be only useful to a budding necromancer.. Or it could be the last remains of a scholar who had been researching the tomb of the once great mage wizendorf who had his secrets buried with him. So inside a scroll tube on the scholars remains is his research on the many traps in the tomb.

We don't know... But it could have gone either way.

Topic: Loaded Dice #9: the Gate
Subject: Practicle players..

Loaded dice is a fun strip. Good artwork and a fun set of characters for sure. I also enjoy reading the narrators section of every post.

It's hard to believe how practicle some characters and there players can be sometimes. As a gamer myself I can't count the number of times I have watched a player take note of something like the pool and avoid it. Sure, it would likely be troubling to deal with the pond, but that's part of the fun. As alacrity pointed out, just ignoring something could cause a problem down the line.

It can also be very hard to get a practicle player involved in a plot. If you really think about it.. Adventuring isn't a very practicle occupation to begin with but a suprising number of players who play 'practicle' characters don't take the time to think about the fact that they are out adventuring, which is not a very practicle thing.

But what can I say... I'm not one of the people who game to win. More often than not I'm gaming to be social, and have a good story. There is nothing wrong with gaming to 'win' but I think those players are missing out on part of what makes rp fun.
