    56 KB Cool LGS stories Anonymous 04/11/11(Mon)22:02 No.14562668  

    Warning mine is really long.

    > Walk into LGS to get BFG minis for Rogue Trader
    > They've been holding 3 blisters for me for about a week now. 40 bucks total.
    > They're cool like that.
    > Decide to look at what other Battlefleet Gothic stuff they have in the racks.
    > Go to racks.
    > Freak the fuck out at all the awesome shit in the racks, LIKE: Imperial cruisers and battlecruisers and a Necron Cairn class Tombship and ork superkroozas and shit
    > Store owner walks over.
    "Looking at the BFG stuff huh?"
    "Yeah. Good lord there's so much."
    >Grab 4 more blisters.
    >Store owner walks with me to counter.
    >Price check. Total: now 100 dollars USD.
    "Mike, give him 20 % off on those." store owner says
    "Sure thing boss."
    "W...what? Why?"
    "Those have been sitting around for about four years now. Gotta get rid of 'em somehow, huh? Actually, hold on. We have a bin with individually packaged ships somewhere behind the counter."
    >Get invited behind counter.
    >Go behind counter.
    >The bin is brought out.
    > Holy shit more ships everywhere, individually packaged, 3 to 5 dollars each.
    > Store owner stares at the box while I pick through it.
    "Huh. I think there's about 200 dollars worth of stuff in there."
    > He rubs his chin for a minute.
    "You can have it all for 60 bucks if you want."

    the group of people that frequetn my FLGS plus the owner all act more like close friends, than a business. Like having friendly bbq's in teh parking lot while hosting tournaments, at the moment three of them have babies so the kids paly together and they watch the store for each other while others have to leave. its pretty sweet.

    I was hanging out at my LGS once, talking to the owner, and he was lamenting how recent rain had resulted in the basement getting flooded, and some of the old stuff stored down there got damaged and how he really had to clean it up but didn't have the time.

    So he told me and a friend that if we helped, he couldn't pay us, but since it was all old merchandise that was probably never going to end up on the shelves that we could take our pick if we found anything down there we wanted.

    After a few hours of moving boxes around, I ended up walking away with 2 boxes of Illuminati boosters, an AD&D 1E PHB and MM, Awful Green Things from Outer Space, and some old Battletech minis. My friend got the original Rogue Trader rulebook and some other things that I don't remember.

    Sure! It's just something we came up with over a bottle of Jacks. For every action you play, you drink. Best just to go with a good sip of whatever you are drinking. Shots would be nightmare mode.

    It gets real good when players build a deck based on action combos where the player could be using anything from 2-10+ action in a turn. Had one guy use 13 actions in one turn. Two glasses.

    We have two LGS. One is run by bunch of fags who love to rip people off. The other is awesome though. It's run by a little old German lady. She's been running the store as a second job ever since her husband the original owner died. She buys pizza for us on FNMs sometimes. She doesn't know a damn thing about magic, but she's still awesome.

    Ouch. Thankfully, I live in Louisiana, southern part of America. No GW stores for hundreds of miles. Just small little mom-and-pop places. Usually, walking into one is like walking into the bar in Cheers. Everyone there greets you by name, usually with a smile. Ahh, southern hospitality and good small business sense. A formidable combination.

    There are some flaws with this.

    First of all, how do you know she's good at sex? Second of all, sexual activity declines in marriages, especially ones with kids.
    Third of all, a person who doesn't sacrifice, yet expects you to sacrifice, does not sound like someone who will put out.
    Finally, you have no spine and will not find a good person to marry; you will find a bitch who will probably blow up and get fat(ter) within 3 years of marriage.

    Packing it up for shipping would be quite an endevour I don't really want to go through. If I just wrap up my entire giant tacklebox and drop it off I doubt half of it would survive the postal service.

    It'd also be nice to be able to stop by to visit the guy later on to see his paint job and make sure he didn't pawn it all off for drug money.

    Looking in from an outside perspective, it may seem a little odd to most people, but the people at my FLGS, are closer to family than my actual family. I love those guys and gals something fierce. Eight years since the store opened, eight years of best friends having the best times of our lives.

    When the store looked like it was going to close, every single motherfucker in that place chipped in to keep it open till business kicked in again.

    Been my kick since I was 18. Train the newbies well, because they are going to be the future of my hobby. I can tell a good story, but I can't seem to write for shit. I can playtest the FUCK out of a system for breakage, but I can't write one for fuckall. I run a damn good game even with mediocre players, and I treat it all as a socialization event. Since I CAN'T create great new things for the hobby, the least I can do is teach the newer guys some tricks from my time with it, and keep the gaming about the table time, and not the fucking internet.

    Because every time I get a good group, and they run for awhile, at least one of them will expand past the regular game and blow us away with some hidden talent. Art, writing, game design, whatever.

    Off the top of my head? Most of this depends on the type of game you're trying to run. Trust me, avoid video game sound hooks for anything even slightly serious. I use a large amount of ambient soundfiles. Forests, waterfalls, miscellaneous crowd noises. I try to not use a specific sound for a dice based event, as I get a better impact from focusing on the event, rather than 'hold on, wait, let me cue this... ok!' Better skills and someone might find a better way to do it. Beyond me atm. Creepy ambient, try to youtube up the sounds of the radio frequencies of the planets.

    Music, I have a series of stock playlists set for a couple hours each that follow a general theme. Action, stealth, intrigue are all subsets on a given playlist. I've built a classical/orchestral (yoko kanno is a fantastic non vocal short piece composer), electronica, rock/metal, acoustic, traditional midevil lists that all follow the same pattern.

    Depending on the group depends on how much or how little I'll integrate sound into a given session or campaign. Some groups, it's just too immersion breaking, especially when they start asking 'who does this' or even worse 'what is this crap?'

    No vocals, lower volume, and prebuilt lists with hashes for specific events for the TLDR crowd.

    I worked retail in Australia, Brisbane in fact, and that only counts if they are advertised as being on special after the special has expired, not if they were mispriced in general. Some managers had me sell it as advertised as a cursety to the customer, but we were under no obligation to do it.

    And you can always refuse to sell to a customer, but you better have a good reason when you write up the incident later.

    Those better be lobotomized, every god damn time a underage kid comes in they start bragging, SCREAMING LOUDLY and generally grabbing everyone's stuff and attempts to steal anyone's shit.

    I had one of the twats that tried to yoink my DS back in the day, or my entire backpack. After couple hours of stalking and proper dark corner, I broke his arm and disfigured his hand.

    Don't open a gaming store as a primary business.

    However they *do* make good tax writeoffs. Because if you're not either very lucky, or the sole provider in an otherwise very active community, your average gaming store absolutely hemorrhages money.

    Also, shrinkage. Holy shit are little kid gamers thieves.

    Geeze, that sounds super annoying. I'm sorry you have to encounter so many shitty kids. That's kind of what I was expecting when I met that group of them.

    These kids seemed rather calm. Half of them were meek but welcoming, the leader kid was like "Hey! This is my first time playing, and I'm having a great time. Come and watch as I try to take down my friends leader!" He was super pumped to talk to someone about the match he had been playing. The guy he was playing was having a fun time talking about it to me too. He was all embarrassed and shy about liking 40k, admitting he couldn't get enough of it. We joked around a lot and it was a nice end to the evening.

    Either way, he's creepy and his shop is impossible walk around, so I never go there.

    The other one is mostly 40k and I'm more of a role player.

    Luckily, there used to be this awesome shop and I got to know the owner who introduced me to the university role playing society, which is also pretty fucking sexually open and has loads of really, really hot chicks.

    Then some snotnosed bat comes in and tries to nick your cards or even miniss, fuck someone got even their paintbrush set he just bought stolen.

    Then they have the nasty habit of smearing their cheetos or otherwise dirty fingers on everyones minis, god forbid if they are fragile they just grab it from the base and TILT IT UPSIDE DOWN.

    I remember when there were some younger kids in the store a few times I stopped in. They got some Bella Sara and Yu-Gi-Oh cards or whatever, and made a bit of a ruckus looking at them in a corner.

    Notice some awesome Forge World Ork thing one of the owners was working on. (Forget what it was called, big-ass dinosaur-thing with a tail?)

    Come in next week, notice the FW model is no longer on counter. Not in display case either.

    Turns out one of the kids broke the tail off it. And then the owner had the cops pick the kids up. The parents showed up a couple hours later and the owner informed the parents where the kids where and that they were no longer welcome at the store.

    At least the break was clean. They managed to pin and glue it back on to the point you couldn't tell after it was painted up.

    The owner of my local "Comic Book Store" is a pretty awesome guy. He runs MtG with FNM every week and releases and all that jazz. Would go along to FNM if it wasn't so dominated by the 30-40 year-olds with solid income who can purchase 4 Jaces for their CawBlade with out much worry. There IS a DnD group in town that I tried to get into, but the DM is a retard and let his brother play his Tauren (yeah from WoW) character in a game; so I decided not to bother. And a local 40K group who consist of 4 people, 3 speesh marines and 1 Elfdar.

    You would think they'd be against pollution and industrialisation but I guess you just fucked the silly right now out of them.

    Great going 35 year old traditional gamer who plays at the university's gaming store and bangs all the hot chicks you've awakened the Kwitzach Hadarach.

    *MY* FLGS is run this hot chick who is a future clone of myself and all the people who go there are also from the future. Some are robots. We bang constantly and play traditional games. This one robot chick (who is from from the future, and hot) can shuffle magic cards in her twat and then shoot them out.

    Also the store in in space, and I am a wizard.

    Robots are so passe. My LGS is run by clones of famous actresses and porn stars programmed for maximum geekiness and who find it extremely hot, and who piss liquid cocaine. Also they sell Warhammer figures at half off the GW suggested prices.

    My FLGS in the centre of the sun, and they have this private backstage area with all the hottest chicks from recorded history playing D&D and they'll do whatever you want if you roll a Natural 20, but all the sides have 20 ON THEM!!!

    Also, I can buy whatever book/army/cards from any time period, for free! You guys should check out the 6th edition Grey Knights codex, there is this one piece of fluff where these Grey Knights rape The Emperor so that their dicks can become sanctified and fight off the daemons.

    My FLGS has Mat Ward locked in a dungeon where you get 5 minutes alone with him for 50 bucks a go and can do whatever you want. As long as he lives.

    Uh, no, stop getting butthurt over a fucking story about a cool RP group. This entire thread was about cool rp groups, mine just happens to include awesome, sexy women.

    It's not like these women are a fucking harem or something, they're just promiscuous.

    Also, not all the chicks there are hot. The majority, yes, but there are some real homely chicks there too.

    I'm more surprised you don't have anything like this where you live.
