  1. What is EON? In short: One instance you're attending a classy party, something goes wrong and the next thing you know you find yourself mentally scarred and fighting for your life EON is a Swedish roleplaying game in the fantasy world of Mundana. There's a heavy dose of "realism" in the system, while it will sound like a simulator in most things, it however offer a lot of roleplaying stuff. Due to the realism aspect of the game, there's a slightly higher mortality rate of characters than D&D. The core rule system can feel difficult to learn and remember, and it in some aspects are, on the bright side, there are tons of different skills you can negotiate with the DM how to use them in certain situations where you think they'd fit, outside of their obvious use, or for a fun story. I'd place EON in medium fantasy. There's magic, other "Peoples" ( EON uses "Peoples" instead of "Races" ) than humans, religious miracles, different kinds of monsters and so forth. However Mages are not that common, and there are downsides to being a mage, aside from failing a spell and then failing to dissipate the out of control spell. The other peoples aren't that different to humans, though from other fantasy games it is, no Orcs or Gnomes, basically they go by a different names though. True "monsters" are also rarer. Non-combat events are grouped into two groups, Challenges and Conflicts. Challenges are events in which there's no direct opponent but a special goal. Another person or monster may be a part of that challenge, but not as a direct opponent and not the end goal. Conflicts are when one part is trying to win over the other part about something, there's an active opponent. Combat can be very fun, damage tables and hit tables really help in the story telling of what's happening and bring the fight more to life. As well as there being no health, but your character gets exhausted instead, and may or may not drop down when taking damage, because that is also a check you do with a dice pool. Another aspect is Mental Trauma from events. Your character may be exposed to mentally disturbing challenges that can affect him/her in some way. Unfortunately they've recently updated the game in the newest version and a lot of the old material isn't usable anymore in terms of gameplay, as fluff it works well. Magic is one of those things that weren't worked on so proper magic is for the time being out of bounds. The characters have some random elements in their creation, important things in your backstory and what kind of bonuses or not-so-good things you carried with you from it. You usually get points to spend on skills. Character improvement isn't as drastic as a "level up". As your story progress you'll be awarded with points, these points can be spent to have a chance of becoming better at a certain skill, learning a new specific skill, new religious stuff, a new language or as we house ruled, have a chance of increasing an attribute. As such, character progression is infinite and there's really no end to your character unless it dies or you retire it. Though improving your skills and attributes get more and more difficult the better you get. From an earlier version of EON, my best kept memory was spending about one hour creating a new character, only to spend five minutes into the game and turn to sand. Mage using Earth magic turned my character to sand, a mage I didn't see after I exited a tavern brawl. As for this newest version, I've only been DM, however last time we played, the party of three players came upon two "toad-people mummies". The mummies beat down the party's tank by round 2, then the ranger got one down in round 5 but went down himself in round 6. After that, the little Missel, gnomish / halflingish, character spent 10 to 15 rounds dodging and hitting the remaining mummy only to utterly destroy the mummy's ribcage and spine so hard it fell apart, how did he do it? He crushed it with a short sword. A fun little thing is that EON uses "infinite dice pools", so to speak. Your skills and attributes are measured in a dice pool, as you may have noticed in the character sheet. When you then do checks you use the pool connected to the specific skill against a numeric value, difficulty. Any 6 you get on your throw is not added to the sum of all throws, instead you get two more dices to the pool. Example, you have 3D6 in Jumping, thus you roll three die, with the results 2, 5 and 6. You add 2 and 5 together and then roll two more die, 1 and 3, adding those to the total sum of 11. Had you gotten another 6, you'd have continued untill you didn't roll any more sixes. Characters also have something called "Focus" which is a resource players can use to increase the size of their dice pool in situations they feel they need the extra power. It however recharge slowly and can be hazardous to ones health if all focus is gone and you start acquring disturbances that affect focus and well being. The latter is the max amount of focus your character can have. To recharge focus, you have to wait to a new game meeting, provided it's justifiable yo regain focus between meetings. Alternatively you can complete a task from your Character Trait, which is basically an incentive to roleplay your character more. You can complete one step of it as many times as you like, but only once per meeting will you get rewards for it. Seeing as I'm hoping to get enough players together to DM EON, I thought I'd start off dropping some resources. Mind you, these are translations from the real game, not something I've made up on my own. The real game is written in Swedish so I took the liberty of translating. It needs work, especially the text heavy ones. I will put my mind to it when I get another project done. Character creation is at this point possible. Will also translate more stuff so there's more content in English. Pleasd do provide feedback so I can improve it. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/qarbmrlb002p3qm/AAA5iZ7A9R2pywtbAcVd6fqQa?dl=0
  2. roll20

    So I have a question about this; is there anybody here that plays Pen & Paper games like D&D or Shadowrun? If so, is there any groups that are apart of the AJSA that are using an online sight like Roll20 to get together for games? Further, if that's not the case, would anybody be willing to join and make up a group? We can hash out the details later, but I think I'd rather like to see who's interested in something like this?
  3. Hi AJSA! This week, with the new season of the TV show just around the corner, I take a look at A Game of Thrones from Fantasy Flight Games.
  4. Hi all, Just wondering if there were any players of the warhammer tabletop game on the AJSA. Fanatsy, LOTR or 40k, I wouldn't mind reading what kind of armies you have and some epic war stories.
  5. So im starting to play warhammer 40k (the tabletop) as the imperial guard now since im starting out with a custom regiment i have to make up sort of a backstory, which i have...sort of. The regiment is winter focused and is on a planet of ice/snow. Im using the standard Cadian shock troppers as i dislike the valhallan ice warriors models. Anyone have a good idea for a name for that planet ? Something that relates to ice/snow/frost maybe. I've tried to generate a random planet name, but they all just sound wrong and bad.
  6. Hi guys! Here's my very first boardgame review for my new show Dice Hard. This time I take a look at the push-your-luck dice game King of Tokyo I worked really hard on this and would appreciate any feedback you fine ladies and gentlemen could offer
  7. Anyone here interested in playing some warhammer 40k tabletop on roll20.net I am new though, only ever played one game before, with people who did not explain anything.
  8. As the title might suggest, I was wondering if anyone would be interested in a tabletop friday? What I would require of you is to own the amazing game Tabletop Simulator. If you don't know about it yet, and you really enjoy tabletop games, I highly suggest you give it a look, its fantastic! What our Tabletop Friday events would be is, I would pick a game, or we would pick a game, and give it a go. The games could consist from Settlers of Catan, to Betrayal at House on the Hill, or even a good game of Dominion. There are PLENTY of great games to play and it would be great to give it a shot, I'm thinking I would have the time be at maybe 8:00 Est, but depending on how many EU players we get, I would be happy to change that time to be more according. So let me know what you guys think, if this gets good feedback I could definately start hosting, I know how to play alot of games, and I'm happy to teach new players.
  9. The AJSA continues to expand and it seems fitting to provide a place for our members to talk about Board Gaming in all it's forms! The last few years have seen a Renaissance in Board Gaming's visibility on the internet; from popular YouTube shows like Wil Wheaton's TableTop; to the successful conversion of many popular board games to the Tablet/Mobile format, to even Angry Joe's TableTime board game streams on Twitch! Purpose of this Forum -Provide a place to discuss, recommend, and review board games of any type. -Provide a place to discussion of Board/TableTop Game blogs, YouTube shows, Twitch streams, and Kickstarters. -This sub-forum will evolve based on how you want to organize it!
  10. Now its been quite some time since I've played a tabletop.... D&D to be exact, but I can say that this has gotten me interested in getting into it again and they have already far exceeded their goal with 28 days left to spare as I'm typing this. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/wadedyer/fragged-empire-tabletop-rpg?ref=discovery http://www.fraggedempire.com/
  11. Ok well my friends and I are getting back together for Winter Break from college. We are starting a new DnD campaign based on the Mass Effect universe. And we have found a basic set up for it with the D20 system but we are open to suggestions. Any ideas to bring into the game will be heard. We are open to suggestions on the game and what to do. We are having it set up between the 2nd and 3rd games when Shepard is grounded and the Reapers are closing in. Any suggestions?
  12. First of all, this isn't so much as a video, but more like recorded chat when we were playing D&D, this was pretty much half way through our little journey, so there's more to come and LoreMaster and the rest of us over at http://angryjoeshow.com/ajsa/topic/141-tabletop-rpgs/ can fill you in on the details we made you -sadly- miss. If you're interested in what we're doing or you know and would like to play, again I'll say, head over to: http://angryjoeshow.com/ajsa/topic/141-tabletop-rpgs/ and make yourself known. Little disclaimer, some of us seem a bit nub'ish so you'll probably get some pauses as we're trying to figure out what each person said, but, we are getting better at it all. So stay tuned! Also, apologies about the unprofessional simple linking to to Soundcloud, I had tried to see if the player could embed on this topic for an easier experience. If anyone knows someway to do that, that'll be great, if not, no trouble. Finally... enjoy our misadventures with a candid and enthusiastic group comprised of a lamentful elf escaping his past, a blind gnome who must make Listen tests to find his way, an unemployed wizard-in-training and an uncaring mercenary bruiser. https://soundcloud.com/bossronin/ajsa-angry-joe-show-army The Introduction https://soundcloud.com/bossronin/ajsa-angry-joe-show-army-1 The first forty minutes of our new adventure.
  13. Well it is not a ''video game'' site but I think it is a great Roleplaying site that allows people to play tabletop RP games like Warhammer 40k to D&D online with their own settings , mods and all that cool stuff. I must say , I always enjoyed the aspect of playing Tabletop RP games but sadly didn't had the group around me to experience it in person. With Roll20 however it helps those who are interested but couldn't find the place to do it , a great platform. Whoelse knows or interested in Roll20.net ? If so, what are the campaigns you enjoy to play most ?
