Tell a story about introducing cards into a game!

I'll start. We had a deck of many things! The ranger drew the first card and died. We reshuffled the deck. The cleric drew a card and died. We reshuffled the deck. The fighter drew a card and died. We reshuffled the deck. The warlock drew a card and died.

Then it was my turn!

My kender paladin drew a card and gained a level. He drew another card and got something like ten thousand gold. He drew a third card and got a wish. "I miss my friends. I wish I was with them." And died.

Please note that I specifically did not reshuffle the deck for my turn. Party agreed it was the best TPK ever.

Well, apparently there was a 2e campaign where the PCs got a castle by drawing from the Deck of Many Things. How frequently does that happen?

I GMed a game where I had the Deck of many things in an artifact room as a throw away gag when the rogue just picks it up and opens it. The whole party freaks out, but in the end they all draw one card and hope for the best.
The Ranger got the ability to find a way out of one problem. The barbarian got a massive boost to diplomacy and a small castle in the desert. The rogue got a +5 flaming anarchic longbow.(He was level 4.)
Later, when a new fighter joined the party, we gave him the option to draw from the deck as if he'd been there. He took 2 cards, the mad fool. First one gave him a ton of XP. Second one tore out his soul and sent it to a Slaad lord for some reason. And this was when they were already on a quest to get back the rogue's soul which... eh, story for another day.

"That First Campaign"

So, in my group's first ever game I decided to include a homebrew deck of cards that had a random effect when drawn as a fumble deck.

The fighter in a massive brawl against an undead horde managed to grow a pair of giant tits (his character was male), grew some bitchin' dragon wings, and then had all of his clothing turn permanently invisible when he tried to wear them.

Just realized that, in a One Piece webcomic, there's a character named Robin. WHO'S SHE GONNA END UP PLAYING AS??? I HAVE NO CLUE. Feeling stupid.

I did enjoy afro luffy and the big fight with Foxy. Outside of that, however, it was mostly pointless competitions.

I mean, come on. Roller Derby? While I freely admit One Piece roller derby could be awesome, there weren't any awesome villains to fight.

The biggest problem with the Davey Back fights was how incredibly out of character Luffy was. He never would have agreed to betting his nakama like that in the first place!

That was filler actually. It wasn't in the manga. The only parts that were in the manga was the race, the basketball game where zoro fights a fishman giant (how is that not awesome?), and the boxing fight between Luffy and Foxy. And yeah that arc was pretty pointless except for introducing a certain character.

Filler!? I KNEW IT! Admittedly, much of that would have been fine, just not all back to back, resulting in basically the One Piece version of Mario Party. And that could have been awesome, if they had had more devil fruit users there. And if everyone had been short, drunken sociopaths with beards and a penchant for socks and mist.

I would love to see Oda's take on Dwarf Fortress. It's over-the-top enough that he'd probably have a blast.

Silentking




10th Mar 2014, 8:20 PM

Uh, guest? It was in the manga. Yes the arc in the anime was actually expanded on far more than it should have (The roller derby was made just for the anime for example. In fact it, if the anime did it like the manga, the captain fight would have happened after Zoro and Sanji doing that soccer game thingy), but it was still in the manga. Again, Oda himself that the arc was something he written just for fun and was not important to the story. Do you want me to say what chapters it was in the manga? Because I can do that easily thanks to One Piece having its own wiki.

Um Silentking...I was pointing out to Raxon that the Roller Derby part was filler and that only the race, soccer game thing and the boxing match were in the manga. Same as you just did...I don't think you read my comment right.

Considering the appearance of basically every woman in one piece, Oda absolutely does not have the anatomical knowledge to make such a thing.

That said, I dig a lady with scars. Notice that only old women and Alveda ever stray from the hartman hip hollywood build. Sad. No short, flattish, brown eyed girls with one eye missing, and a crippled limb, walking through the woods deep at night, with only her mother's red cloak to keep her warm? Don't worry, baby, I'll keep you warm.

Why yes, my dear, I do have big eyes. I have something else big for you to see...

honestly it was a pretty nice light hearted moment of fun between Ener intentend killing of a whole country in Skypiea, and the awesome, but with most tragic backstory ever, Water 7/Enies lobby. good to breath once in a while.
Also, Afro Luffy was great.

As for the out of character, Luffy did'nt knew that he was betting his crewmate when he agreed on the duel. and both accepting a challenge (which he did because the horse got shot) and not coming back on his word are quite in-character for him. The other thing in character will be that he trust is true compagnons to win the competition. accepting a second davy back fight while knowing what it was, however, that might be ooc. but as pointed out, it was due to filler.

"Raxon"

Okay, did anybody besides me imagine Raxon doing a Nicolas Cage impression when telling the story about the Deck of Many Things? I could even visualize Grug slapping the wall exclaiming "...and DIED!" Remember kids: Never not be afraid. Especially if someone in your party is named Raxon.

Let me reiterate, by the way. Kender. Paladin. The cleric had to help me remember to put back everything I picked up, just in case I forgot. I liked to check everyone's inventory while they slept, and sometimes slip a few gold into their pockets, which meant borrowing their character sheet, erasing something, and writing something else. I also had a tendency to slip useful items into the party inventories. I was even allowed to take the flaw: Kenders Suck for a penalty to reputation, in exchange for an extra feat!

In this one homebrew campaign I was in, we once got out a deck of cards annd played poker as our characters and stayed completely in character the whole time. We even bet our characters' money. Of course, me being lousy at poker meant that my character had almost nothing left...

"What the Craps"

I just play Koi koi, Mahjong, or Shogi. Since I'm the only one of my group (at that time) that knew what any of them were (I still don't know how to play koi koi, or if I'm spelling that right), I usually won automatically, even though Mahjong is usually like Solitaire.

"Horse races"

In our Ponyfinder campaign, a unicorn racer named Dust Trail was being targeted by a group of Elves, Human Mercs, and ponies that were trying to see if you could take one pony's Mark of Destiny, and put it on another creature.

So we went to a race, placed bets, and then took control of the racers, rolling d20s with modifiers to see how the race goes. Dust Trail got second place, and Sugar Rush (whose modifier would jump back up by +5 every time she rolled an 18 or higher, but otherwise decreased by -1 every roll) got first place. The Witch lost most of her money, while the Paladin didn't bet at all, but the Fighter and my Rogue both won back what we'd bet, plus an extra 250gp.

It was probably the most intense gaming moments we'd had, and it was nothing but a race. Though afterwords, the Witch started flirting with Sugar, so I rolled to see if Sugar would fall for her, and rolled a Nat 20... and then a 19 to confirm. It was retconned later, because the GM couldn't get her personality to be any good, but it was fun while it lasted.


And yes, Shogi is basically chess, but I think there's some rules different. Been a while since I played.
