Hey did you guys try out the free beta period of Cold War that's been going on these past couple days? Feels good gunning down CIA imperialists in Moscow, or blowing up Miami as a qt KGB wannabe. The only Soviet operator so far is also the only woman so we got the coomers on our side. Might as well make the clan tag BLM too in order to automatically trigger /pol/tards in the lobby amirite?

Hello, as many of you may be aware I also moderate another image board at 7chan.org and the 7chan IRC. We are looking to grow our videogame IRC network and looking for people to join us in playing some videogames. We host a room dedicated to playing videogames online, or, just discussion about video games in general. Some people in the room mentioned bunkerchan.xyz/games/ and so here I am. I am looking to get a little input from the user base of /games/ about maybe hosting our irc network here as the official /games/ irc. That way we can have more people to play vidya with us over there and /games/ can, actually, have a central location for hooking up with other video game enthusiasts. Everybody wins in this case. That's my logic behind it. The bunkerchan mods unanimously voted in support of the matter. I just wanna get a little input from you guys here before we proceed. Our irc network is located at irc.7chan.org/6697. SSL is required our gaming room can be located at #netplay. If anyone is interested in checking it out. I'll leave this sticky up for a day or so then take it down after I get some input from everyone. What does everyone think?

>>6814 Why do people equate a not living board with a dead board? Why are we such defeatist bunkerchan?
>>6816 Because they're newfags and doomers
sounds good to me think itll take a bit to pick up activity cus this is one of the more dead boards on bunkerchan
I would join your group if it was on Matrix.
>>6977 In anticipation of posts like this, given the popularity of Matrix on bunkerchan, we have been considering a Matrix bridge to the IRC channel. I think there are some user consent issues to work out though: even though Matrix isn't Discord, it still represents an added layer of logging not normally present on IRC that some users may object to.

I think D&D has degraded over the years, but I wanna hear your thoughts.

>>4177 It's not so much that they're bad, but that they aren't good. The main thing you get out of buying and using an RPG somebody wrote, aside from incidental setting "fluff", is rules, especially for conflict resolution and world generation. But rules in storygames invariably boil down to "make shit up", just like little girls holding a pretend magical tea party, thus the epithet "MTP". Now, there's nothing wrong with using MTP sometimes, there's even a discreet reminder about it in D&D with "rule 0". The problem is, every child already knows MTP, so anything written inside a published tabletop RPG must be different from and superior to MTP for at least some tasks, otherwise it's just a book full of "fluff" instead of a functional RPG. Aside from weak or outright nonfunctional rules, however, actual rules and guidelines typical of storygames are also corrosive. For instance, fate points and narrative control disassociate players from their characters, and discourage detailed worldbuilding, in favor of vague worlds that leave room for limitlessly escalating bullshit: >the wolves press you to the cliff's edge <i jump off <so you fall to your doom? >*burn a fate point* *POOF* *a branch appears* >no, i grab a branch and climb back up after they leave
>>4191 I see, hey, so Burning wheel is a storygame, but it's like a thousand pages of rules and shit, what say you?
>>4191 think it really depends on who you're playing with and what kind of person the dm is

HFM or HPM? Also what countries are good?
>>6938 For HFM, I’d recommend you play as Spain and lose to the carlists, then you events to get cores on all of Spain’s new world territories. HFM is a bit annoying if you’re playing a rising power though, because the colonization of Africa is very railroaded. I don’t know about HPM because I could never get it to work
>>6939 Ah I'm on HPM, worked first time for me. It's still a little railroaded for French Algeria, soon as Nationalism and Imperialism was done full sized Algeria just fucking pops up under tiny French Algeria and France gobbles them up. France is a right cunt on this playthrough, they were my ally at first and helped me take out Two Sicilies, but then rebels went ballistic and booted me out and I couldn't get the wargoal again, and at some point I lost France as an ally and wound up with NGF. NGF is alright but fucking Austria has allied with the Brits and France has allied with the Russians. Soon as I formed Italy everyone went bonkers trying to steal my fucking land, luckily I only lost part of Italy and a decent colony rather than the two good chunks of Italy they wanted of course they took the one province I had with coal

The mods over there are just as cancerous as over there. Litterally banning the word two in some convenient contexts.

Mostly because every other villain in the game is shit compared to him.
>>6853 Also what the fuck is the point of recruiting a getaway driver that is the second best driver in the car?
>>6848 >>6853 >>6868 R* really didn't think this one through properly, also that's the issue with R* game design in general in that a poorly designed mission can make you really hate its character even if they're otherwise okay, same thing happened with Zero and his missions in SA.

Should there be a Matrix/Element server for we, the g*mers Poll Comrade 08/29/2020 (Sat) 00:53:16 No. 4082 [Reply]
The site's good for general discussion of gaming stuff of course, but for those who play multiplayer there's no way to connect and team up with/1v1 fellow bunkerbros, and the actual /leftypol/ Matrix server seems more for direct discussion about political theory (duh) and moderation. I just wanna play tf2 with bros who don't think 'gasthejuice' is actually funny, you know. Voot and discuss. (pic semirelated) https://www.strawpoll.me/20849203
