This got a big old laugh from me.

You doin ok, doom?
5.12.2021, 9:06 AM
Excellent 😎 That's the goal!

I'm doing alright. I am very behind on everything right now so I'm playing catch-up constantly, but I'll get there :)

Glad to hear it. Don't mean to pressure you, just checking in. Take your time, pace yourself, look after yourself, take all the time you need.

And I loved this comic so if these are easier to do, please do more :)

The sad thing is, Reka isn't sighing because of the in-game sexual harassment, or even the PVP.


It's the grappling rules. Always, the grappling rules.

Hey these days grappling isn't very hard at all. It also doesn't do hardly anything, but it's at least easy.
5.12.2021, 2:01 PM
Not like I'd actually know. I last played 3e in... 2002? A little bit after, I tried to join a Hackmaster group (Hackmaster is based on AD&D), but that fell through.

I'm mostly a GURPS player, and even then, I haven't really played that in almost as long as the other two. Turns out keeping up with a gaming group is hard as an adult, especially when you've got... issues. XP

I totally feel you. In keeping up you lose your mind. A player says "Hey, I want to push him off the cliff," and suddenly you're wrestling with the rules for 3rd edition, 5th edition, Pathfinder, and pathfinder 2 all simultaneously, only to realize you're playing Star Wars. It gets harder.

Oh, which Star Wars?

Next to GURPS (Third Edition, Revised), the West End Games Star Wars RPG is the one my old high school (plus a little college) group played the most.

With D&D, what I listed was my super-limited experience. Honestly, I probably know as much about the games from reading comics about them or systems based on them than I do from actually playing. ^^'

I'm mostly up to date with the newer Fantasy Flight version of Star Wars. It comes with unique dice that have symbols instead of numbers. Character creation is cool because you've got tech trees rather than gaining levels so you've got a lot of nuance of the character you want to make, but the game is intentionally super vague about a number of things that puts a lot of stress on the game master to make things up on the fly. Still it's a pretty good game.

I only ever played the West End Games version of Star Wars, which used their D6 System. It released all the way back in 1987, and wasn't discontinued until 1999. No character levels that I recall, but it has been nearly 20 years since I last played. No Tech Trees either, so I don't know what those are. XD

Wizards of the Coast then released a d20-based Star Wars RPG, which ran from 2000 to 2010. Didn't realize Fantasy Flight was the current one, or I would have been more specific. I'm not a huge fan of d20, and have played very little of it, so once WotC took over I stopped paying attention. ^^'

Glad you're enjoying the latest Star Wars RPG. Well, I assume it is the latest;

Ya, my first thought was, "No! Not the grappling rules! It isn't worth it Galgy!"

Galgarion: I ain't even mad that I failed my dice roll. Not like I care. What with my knockers being even bigger!
Eikre: No fair! Reka, tell him my hooters are bigger.

Reka: *sigh* Roll for boob size.
5.14.2021, 8:39 PM
In GURPS, instead of rolling to determine your cup size, it is a Perk you can take at character creation.




What, you thought I was joking? Perks are literally the most minor of Advantages (Feats?) in GURPS, worth just one Character Point.

Extreme Sexual Dimorphism

You have exaggerated primary male or secondary female sexual attributes. This gives +1 to Sex Appeal – but also +1 to others’ attempts to identify you, and -1 to Disguise or Shadowing when trying to remain anonymous.

"Hrrrrnnggh Reka, I'm trying to use disguise but I have extreme sexual dimorphism and the +1 to others' attempts to identify me keeps alerting the guards"

In a word, Doomdragon6... yes! XD GURPS is designed to handle just about any setting and style of play. That includes comedy, which is where this Perk is more appropriate.

You can still take it in a more serious setting, but the scenario you described is actually quite plausible, if not probable! XD Especially when you remember that GURPS uses 3d6, not d20. Instead of changing the odds by a flat 5% with each +/- one, the closer something is to average before the modifiers, the bigger the shift!

So your average person with IQ 10 would instead roll against an 11 to remember you... going from a 50% chance of success to 62.5%! Now imagine there are multiple average people trying to ID you. XP

My favorite system has actually been the d100 FASERIPL system! Started in Marvel but can be adapted to any tabletop game. I love it.
5.15.2021, 7:03 PM

Now you just need to adapt Extreme Sexual Dimorphism for when you want a 90s flavored campaign. XD

[Big Honkin' Tits]

"What's it do?"

"Gives you big honkin' tits."

"Okay yeah but what's that do?"

"It's +10 to Tits."

"But what does that MEAN!?"

Reminds me of the classic line from 'Inside Man'
Cop: the witness thinks that you might be one of the masked bank robber who then hid among the hostages as one of the robber had large... you know.
Lady: So you are arresting me for violating section Double D?

Extreme Sexual Dimorphism: putting the Double D's in D&D.
