More Fallout is Dragons AND Rainbow's player is enthusiastically getting into the game with props?!


My old local group rarely messed with props when we gamed. There was one campaign that for a little while I used LEGO to build props in order to help describe objects they'd find. Works great on battle mats too! It was like having interactive breakable environments, and who doesn't love LEGO?

Ah, the wonders of Lego. We used them for horses in one campaign. Not even Lego horses, just vague amalgamations of bricks that were longer than they were tall and taller than they were wide. It's not like we could've balanced our miniatures on the horses, anyway.

Funny story, the first time I ever played I actually used the vitruvius minifigure from the Lego movie for my cleric. It then became a running joke that the reason for his charisma being so high was that he actually had the voice of Morgan Freeman

Well can't really go wrong having the voice of Morgan Freeman. :D

They out to do the Vocaloid process with him, preserve that majesty for all time.

That's great. When I was learning to GM, my siblings and I used lego minifigures for all of the character tokens. My brother had a cleric with a big staff and huge hat that wouldn't stand up, so we had him stand in a bucket to give him a wider base. Naturally, this led to incessant teasing about the cleric-in-a-bucket. Every time he failed a roll, we would blame the bucket, until it got to where he was standing in a bucket all the time in character. Good times.

One of these days I'm going to get my hands on my childhood LEGO collection, and actually build sets for a campaign. If I can figure out scale, it shouldn't be an issue. Of course, that involves hauling them out of storage.

Anyone tried this before? Any tips?

Legomen take up a 2x1 grid slot so you'd either have to use single 1x1 blocks to represent people instead or use every 2x2 lego area to represent 5 feet, the first way looses out over simple paper cutouts, the second takes up a HUGE amount of room and legos to terrain that area. the minimum unmodified longbow range is 500 feet, to have a battlefield where being shot at from multiple angles is a possibility you'd need a circle of legos 10.4 feet across.

>'d need a circle of legos 10.4 feet across.

You say that as if it's a bad thing.
Someone 23rd Apr 2016, 4:20 PM edit delete reply
Well, how would you reach further inside the circle?

While using a 2x2 Lego grade as 5' to cover 1000' would require 10'6", doing the same with standard 1" square battlemaps would require 16'8".

Of course, almost no one bothers with actually setting up the archers who are eating -10 range penalties. Instead they just say that there are archers 'over there'. Although I did do something like that in Car Wars once, having parked a field mounted 105mm with both a stabilized mount and a long barrel on the other side of the room.

I love using props. I have a 21" horse dil- err, marital aids that I place in the table to use as the figure for a purple worm. After two uses, just having the sex toy at the table makes people nervous.

I just hope you washed it afterwards.

Ah, yes. Lego. I used a Lego minifigure for my first Pathfinder character until I got an actual mini for him.

Wait, correction. I used the Lego until the SECOND adventure after I got an actual mini; the first time I took the mini to a game, someone else was using a Lego so I used mine in a show of solidarity.

I did, however, use some Lego chairs to represent animated chairs when I ran a game once.

How does one get in on Fallout Is Dragons? I really now want to join in.
Specter 23rd Apr 2016, 1:23 PM edit delete reply
Sadly, no one (from my knowledge) is able to join in on Newbiespud's game after it began. I pretty sure several people wanted to when he announced it, but those are days long passed. Beyond that, one can sort of join it by watching the series on YouTube or the stream.

However, because of how influencing it was for the people who didn't get in, people started doing there own Fallout Equestria adventures. Maybe not Fallout is Dragons, but still full of mystery and radioactive fun. You might need to find some others who are willing to join in (and agree on some rule set), but I'm sure that won't be hard.

Well, there IS always the chaotic ruleset of Gamma World.

I'm most commonly found on PbP games, but I'm always on the lookout to join a Fallout Equestria style campaign in the future.

I wonder if Dash (or Spitfire for that matter) would allow changelings to aid in the waterspout if they lived in the area.
Euric 23rd Apr 2016, 11:05 PM edit delete reply
Well, for all we know, there could be several changelings amongst the pegasi that day.
aerion111 24th Apr 2016, 12:23 AM edit delete reply
And any 'known' changelings would probably not be allowed to live there, at least the way things currently are.

Though I'm pretty sure the comic hasn't gotten to changelings, right?
There was the guest-comic about them, but that's about it, we're otherwise pre-wedding.
Digo Dragon 25th Apr 2016, 9:24 AM edit delete reply
Digo Dragon
And the guest comic even went on a tangent, calling them evil faeries.

Besides, if any changelings are worth their salt, they would be there training with RD and no one would know about them! :3

I love dash's intense "im gonna do it" face in that third pannel. That is the fce of a mare who knows exactly what what she's about to do.

<Fair warning, this post isn't related to today's comic>
Ladies and gents of Friendship is Dragons, I have some questions for y'all.
1) How does one find an online group for Pony D&D/Pathfinders?
2) How does one find and join a local group of D&D players that are strangers?

I moved to a new town recently, I don't know anyone outside of work, one neighbor is an old lady and the other one seems like someone I don't want to get involved with (from the angry shouting and fight noises that I can hear through my bedroom wall at night), and I would like to play D&D again.

What does one do?

Specter 24th Apr 2016, 5:11 PM edit delete reply

Local gaming: Go on the internet and search for local gaming groups or go to a gaming store (if there is one) and ask around.

Internet: Ask around on trusted sites if there are any groups who need someone, or some people who want to start a group for regular gaming.

Not too sure myself. I'm usually dragged along as a fill in because I'm "A guy someone knows".

Either way, if you want to roll some (virtual) dice, I'm willing to game anytime. I'm sure there are others up to playing some games as well.
aerion111 24th Apr 2016, 10:02 PM edit delete reply
I haven't seen much interest in Pony games, but you could at least try to look around/ask on 's forums.
It's a pretty good site, I feel, for random online games, and asking around might stir up some interest.
But it does have the usual problems with groups made up of near-100% strangers; Most games will fall apart, especially if there isn't a strongly-invested GM and ideally an equally-strongly-invested player or two.
