I love new forums because they are so clean and empty. It also means the start of a new game, new group or a new idea. In this case it is a new game :)

I offer you a lovely session of character creation for...

Warhammer: The Thousand Thrones Character Creation

Filesize: 99MB

Some great laughs as we run through character creation and some excellent characters as well :)

Yay! Warhamster!

I must say some of my fondest gaming memories have been with this system. Excellent mood, flavour etc. Very much looking forward to listening.

We almost have the full Tomb of Haggemoth crew together. They are just missing Glen.

Since we have a larger number of players now in this recording I wanted to ask a question. What do you guys think is the optimal number of players for a game? I find that most games work best with 4 players plus the DM. Three players also works well, but two is too few. I find that with only two players total, the players feel too much pressure to react to everything that happens in the game. I try not to run games with more than six players. I find that it get's too hard to schedule and manage the game at that size.

I think four players is optimal. For horror games, maybe three or even two. At this point we have six in our Conan RPG campaign, and any more would be too much, I think.

Sweet! I've actually been curious about this game but hadn't got around to checking it out. Thanks guys!

-Edit: For Phil's question-

I like 4 for a number of reasons. It can cover every role in DnD (new or old), it offers enough variety at the table that there's usually some great dialogue between PCs, and there aren't so many people that it gets bogged down.

You can go 1 up or 1 down without too much trouble, in my experience, but I was in a game of 6 before and it wasn't handled well even by a relatively experienced GM so I'm reluctant to go there. 2 is, quite simply, just barely enough people to make it worth it unless you're playing a very focused game.

That's my opinion, anyways.

I find four to six to be optimal, with horror games working with anything from 2-6. Single player horror games can work, but horror is infectious so multiple people works best in my opinion. We have five players in the PGs with a sixth currently considering whether or not she has the time.

The introduction sent shivers down my spine.

Thanks. I knocked together the intro yesterday evening. It's no WHG intro but I was pleased with it.

Right. Off to work.

Thank you! Someone on the Penny Arcade boards suggested this site for more D&D goodness when the PA podcasts wee taking too long to come out, and I've been steadily working my way through the backlog ever since.

The next session is even funnier, even cruder, and even more shocking. There are some great one liners and James proves that it isn't only do-nuts that cause savage outbursts....

Life as a patron is sweet, you should try it :D

I'll probably funnel some of my hard earned dough towards the site in the near future, but I am afraid of commitment.

You can cancel at any time; so 5$US for a month trial isn't bad. :D

Yes I agree with BJB pressuring the listeners is my job. :D
