Welcome to the Campaign Builders' Guild.

The core purpose of the guild and its membership is to offer a free and friendly community where anyone can take part in the discussion, review, and creation of homebrewed roleplay worlds and the campaigns that take place within them. We offer a welcoming atmosphere where constructive criticism and open feedback is encouraged in the hope that we might inspire each other to become better and more creative world builders. The roleplay gaming market has been flooded over time with numerous settings of all manner of theme and quality. There are times where such pre-designed games are ideal for you and your friends. We're here for all the other times. Creating a new world to call your own can be exciting, but it can also be daunting. The Campaign Builders' Guild is here to help. The membership is full of experienced roleplay gamers eager to guide you towards the goal of a polished campaign world that your players will look forward to taking part in. So what are you waiting for? There's an entire group of people waiting to meet you, all you have to do is take the plunge.


Last 20 Shouts:

This is both fascinating, boring, complex, and absolutely retro-tastic:
No but I want to. Got a link?
Did anyone else happen to be watching The International last night when OpenAI's DotA bot beat a pro player 2-0?
LoA, the kind of questions you've been asking lately would be much better served by making a thread, rather than asking in the Tavern. It'd allow for longer answers, and people with the same question later on will be able to find your thread and read it.

There's nothing wrong with creating lots of threads if they ask valid questions and lead to good discussion. I only get on people's case for doing that when they're redundant or pointless.


Are there any better 3.x/PF resources for modern and futuristic settings other than D20 Modern/Future?
I think what you need to ask yourself is what you want it for. If you just want it for inspiration and like what it's selling, then sure, grab some of its books. If you want to play it but don't know who you'd play it with, you might want to hold off until you know. There's no reason why you couldn't just throw the same game together (thematically) with another system - the only advantage you might get from it is having everything pre-made, and not necessarily well.
Yes. Just for the game design innovation it represents, it's worth $15 for a PDF. And it's also just a *damn* good game. There's plenty of podcast/stream recordings of it in play, if you want to get a feel for it before you commit (since you've got completely opposite answers)


Is Apocalypse World worth my time and money?
Make a thread please!
Less a mechanical point, and more verisimilitude/suspension-of-disbelief point: depending on what armour is available in your setting, surely firearms shouldn't be affected too much by it? So I don't really see how - unless your firearms just do vastly more damage than any other weapons - armour as DR is any better for representing that than an AC based system.
Armor as DR works okay when one of the attack/damage variables stays static, and is also workable if damage is more bounded. If damage from a single attack ranges wildly, then the value of DR too ranges wildly. If you're primarily dealing with weapon attacks that typically deal around the same damage, then you may be able to find a good balance.
I think it depends on the system, how important balance is to that system, and how important balance is to you.


Thank you that's perfect. How do you guys feel about DR as Armor? Since I'm having a gun-centric campaign, a friend said I should go with that.
I'm assuming you want a wide range, since you said "compendium". If you do a quick Google search you'll find stuff like this


are there any gun compendiums or resources for Pathfinder?
Well that is a relief. We're no longer doomed!


No, but I chanted Om Shanti Om.
