    You could think of it like a game of WFRP if you wanted. Everyone gets a certain amount of character points, ergo, they will, on average, make it through a determinate amount of shit. And then at some point, the don't.

    Good old Ned ran out. He might have had no more than about 2 or 3 at the start of the campaign, and just generally used up his luck.

    Likewise, certain other characters like the aforementioned 8 year old ninja, have rather a lot, and have not used anything like all of them.

    One can also get more, but you don't really get them all the time.

    Clearly, Danny's shenanigans, while foolish, where foolish in the right way to earn her a steady supply, and generally keep her moving against all logic.

    If you prefer, I believe Riddle of Steel has something involving spiritual virtues that aide you in doing unlikely things for being in character. That could reasonably explain the narrative logic in game rules too.

    I'm currently in the planning stages of running a 'Delta Green' style game in a high lethality system that we use that covers the Greyjoy rebellions. We're going to be taking the Cthulhu references in house Greyjoy and just running with them. But we won't tell the PC's beforehand, just that it's a Westeros game.

    Your PCs need to have more distinct personalities than that. You should establish their differences and key traits in the opening scene, if possible, as well as their relationship to the GM. They all sound essentially interchangeable here; there's not a lot of opportunity to play off one another if they're not distinct enough.
    >> Guybrarian 06/23/11(Thu)13:48 No.15361815

    First of all, I giggled. This sort of reminds me of when I tried to run D&D in high school.

    So do you want to write it where everyone is oblivious and just causing frustration, or do you want to include one or two characters who might be actually have read that sixty page monstrosity?
    >> Guybrarian 06/23/11(Thu)13:50 No.15361830

    Precisely. One of the reasons that Darth and Droids works so well as a comic is that you have some very different personalities. Jim and Ben start off as power-gaming PCs, but they quickly branch off. Ben starts getting into roleplaying, Pete takes the idea of the grognard, Sally's just there because she's dragged along, and Annie is there for all the deep roleplaying.

    Characterization outside of the characters is essential.

    Second, when it comes to Sean cutting the guy's head off, he has to be really gung ho about it. In fact, he has the power to pardon the guy (knows something about the WWalkers? temporary insanity?), and his kids each give good arguments as to why the guy should be allowed to live.

    Then he beheads the dude anyway (for the xp?), which will come and bite him in the ass later when Joff has HIM beheaded for much the same reason and under similar circumstances.

    Ok so we have to figure out how to differentiate our characters a bit.

    Ned should be the straight man, probably not all that into the game or the system

    Jamie is That Guy. Fetishy powerplayer. He built the most effective fighter he could and fucks his sister.

    Tyrion is the roleplayer, but he's also a dick with no respect for the setting. He purposely made a bad character but pulls it off with pure panache.

    Lets have Viceryis be the PC, not the sister. He can switch to her after the DM gets fed up with his shit and he blows a Diplomacy roll with the Dothraki. He's a powerplayer as well, but an ineffective one. He skimmed the background and immediately tried to get into the "most powerful" house, not realizing that they were overthrown in the last few pages.

    I think if you are going to make this, rather than following the show scene by scene, what if you cut out all the Dothraki segments and did them all together, and the same for the King's Landing segments, and Jon Snow on the Wall segments. Or at least put them together into larger chunks to move between.

    It COULD be done, but it would be ambitious as fuck tho.

    On the other hand you could just have people play the more awesome characters, Ned, Tyrion, Bronn, Littlfinger, the spider, Arya, and Syrio Forel. Wouldnt be a long campagin, but due to death rates everyone would end up with like four characters anyway...

    I like that but there should be at least one character who likes the setting. also I'm not sure if the majority of the group should be powergamers.
    I do like jaime being a powergamer and slowly learning to be a better person in character and out.

    All of this should be superseded by ops wishes of course. Our involvement is purely superficially unless he states otherwise.Also I figured that op was just opening the game up and defining the characters in the next couple of pages since they would describe their characters.

    You have to find out who the main character in every situation is. Jaime, Eddard, Dany, Jon, Tyrion and Arya are pretty much all at the center of the action in every situation, except when one is incapacitated somehow - and then another character (like Catelyn or Robb) becomes the focus.

    Tyrion's debatable. He's perfectly respectable when it comes to women, excepting his sister, but he does many questionable things. He executes a bard for knowing he sleeps with a whore, he doesn't tell anyone that he suspects one of his own family crippled Bran, he knowingly besets a horde of mountain bandits in Tully lands, etc.

    This is bad design logic. Every player should have enough personality that, if a reader who has finished the work reads the first comic, they should be immediately able to identify who said what line based purely upon what each player would be most likely to say. Consistent, strong personalities throughout are what drive a comic like this to be worth reading, not cheap gags and the movie gimmick.

    Thats because Sir Barristan was from the "Old" Kingsguard. They took their job extremely seriously.

    Secondly Littlefinger bribed the Goldcloaks. As a group they are the town watch, but the best of the best also make up the Royal guard.

    Thirdly the king was dead. and as is pointed out, loyalty to a dead man is often quite handily trumped by gold from a live one. The only person not bribed was Sir Barristan, simply because they knew he would not take it, which is also why they get rid of him later, because he is no longer completely trustworthy.

    >> Dantalaeon !!2TQS185pmIh 06/23/11(Thu)14:30 No.15362226

    I had two ideas:

    1. Nick wrote a really long backstory, detailing every awesome thing he's ever done, and the DM only just noticed that "killed King Aerys" was one of them.
    2. It's the DM's hamfisted attempt to keep Nick's CHA bonus manageable. If everyone already knows and distrusts Nick's character, then it'll be harder for him to seduce, bluff and intimidate his way through the game.

    For the Dothraki part of the campaign, Sean's character is Ser Jorah?

    ASoIaF has way too many PC possibilities, jeez.

    If I did some rewriting of the first two comics, we could say that this current game is a continuation of a previous one, and mention how Nick killed the main quest giver (King Aerys, who's actually a really nice guy) as a running joke.

    No... I think I like your first idea better. It has to be a new campaign with all new characters/players, otherwise it all gets too messy.
    The DM trying to dumb-down Jaime's charisma is just too perfect.

    Okay, then. Jaime killed the questgiver in the previous campaign, and the DM is punishing him by inflicting penalties to his Charisma. We could also have Maisie (Arya) play Lyanna (explaining why they're so similar - she didn't want to roll up a new character) and have Kit play Rhaegar.
    >> Dantalaeon !!2TQS185pmIh 06/23/11(Thu)14:41 No.15362348

    I'm using the actors' first names for the players' names. Sean Bean is Sean, Kit Harrington is Kit, etc., etc.

    Besides, every time I read about someone bedding a whore or a thirteen-year-old Dany getting screwed by a Mongol, all I wanted to do was bang my head against a wall and say "Oh, George, no."

    >> Anonymous 06/23/11(Thu)14:45 No.15362390


    Oh, I just thought of something: playing off the fact that different people directed different episodes, let's have two DMs, one for Westeros and one for... whatever that other continent was called. George is the main one, but his younger brother Martin does the Dothraki part. Since he's new to DMing, he let's Emma walk all over him and get whatever she wants (it also doesn't help that he has a crush on her). Maybe Jorah is Sean or another veteran player that's trying to keep everything over there in control.

    The lack of other players is due to the other's paying more attention to the more intense Westeros game. How about they all play minor characters (like the rich guy or Dany's bloodrider), but they never really do much since they care more about their other, 'real' characters.

    In fact, most of this stuff could be told as occasional recaps, with Sean or whoever giving George the scoop on what's happening in the other campaign (ie, Jorah being a spy) so he can give pointers and compensate in his game.

    Then, once the whole dragon thing happens and Martin's campaign gets awesome, the other players start to pay more attention to it.

    The railroading bit is fine. I'd like Tyrion and Jaime to be PCs, though.

    Some of the plot points (the zombie apocalypse, the Red Wedding, etc.) could be the DM's way of trying to force the players to go North, but no one other than Kit wants to.

    that's possible. maybe , if the op is going to do mch at the wall. kit plays ser jorahand trys to keep things together. the rest should can be npcs and the rest of the group looks down on that game. but dragons are born shit gets real.

    Another reason I think that you should do the wall and/or stuff across the narrow sea is because it wil pad out the story and keep it going for almost three times as long. it can tide you over until the next season comes out.

    And the recaps are told at the beginning of each Westeros session. Emma also plays Sansa, and tries to play her like Dany (marrying the prince, being a mary sue), but the more experienced George won't let her get away with it and keeps blocking her. The result of this is that 'Sansa' mopes the whole time and is bored out of her mind in the main game sessions (complaining about how her Dany character is soooo much better and more interesting). It would also explain why she jumps for the Lanniser's bait so quickly, she thinks she's getting a chance to mary sue, but is really just being tricked into (hopefully) helping George railroad the characters north.

    Tyrion is a total Mary Sue. Author intentionally made the character to be the most sympathetic character in the series to all the neckbeards out there. He's ugly, so that draws appeal from the neckbeard crowd because they automatically hate on everything beautiful, and they can easily see themselves in Tyrion's shoes because they also think themselves as ugly. At the very start of the first book, when it's pretty much evident that Starks are the main character, he's the only Lannister not shown to be a total dick, by acting all sympathetic towards Stark children, helping them out with advice and whatnot. Later, the character goes into conflict with other characters we the readers dislike. He sacks that corrupt city guard that betrayed Ned, he fucks over Pycelle, he fights with his sister for no apparent reason but to have the character endeared to the audience, since she's obviously the evil one. And by fighting with her, it makes it clearly appear he's the good one.

    Yes, not all of his plans work. But a very large portion of plans do work, mostly because of his personal genius. He manages to free himself from the Vale, gets an army of his own, wins the fucking battle at King's Landing almost single-handedly, and yet he gets no respect at all for that from his family. It's like author is trying to shove the words LOOK HOW POOR THIS GUY IS HE ALWAYS DOES THE BEST BUT EVIL ENVIRONMENT KEEPS FUCKING WITH HIM, DON'T YOU FEEL SAD ABOUT HIM, HE'S SO GREAT HE'S SUCH A NICE FELLA SURROUNDED BY CUNTS, PITY AND LOVE THIS CHARACTER PLEASE.

    Tyrion is a shitty, non-sensical author insert that shouldn't even exist because he fucks up the books, just like Dany and Jon do. If you like Tyrion, you're no better than Twilight fangirls. In fact, you're worse. Twilight fangirls are fourteen year old teenage girls. You, on the other hand, should know better.

    Ding ding! Here comes the fun police!

    A sympathetic character (and everyone, including professional reviewers, sympathizes with him) is not a Mary Sue. A Mary Sue is a badly written character with few or no flaws, doesn't suffer consequences for her actions and is a wish-fulfillment fantasy.

    Tyrion is:
    - Well developed, with detailed and believable motivations
    - Flawed
    - Loses often
    - Someone I really wouldn't want to be.

    Tyrion isn't a Mary Sue.

    Bye. And while you're gone, try to learn the difference between "character who people like" and "Mary Sue."

    Maybe he's from some kind of alternate world where A Game of Thrones was as well written as Twilight and is only read by whiny teenage fangirls.

    I sent an email to David Morgan-Mar, the guy who does Darths and Droids. I have no idea if he'll read it.

    He seems pretty brotacular, though.

    Do you even know what a Mary Sue is? How are they wish fulfillment? I suppose if all you've done is watched the first season you might think Tyrion is, but not knowing the character's story really hurts your point. And Eddard? Troll elsewhere.

    He is, and I have to say, one of the funnier webcomic writers out there. Also, he makes the prequel trilogy make sense now.

    I mentioned that.

    Dear Mr. Morgan-Mar,

    I'm a big fan of your comics. I've been reading Darths and Droids since it came out, and by far my favorite part of it - aside from the jokes, the frequent references to TV Tropes, the players and everything else - is that you've somehow managed to turn the Prequel Trilogy of Star Wars into something that actually makes sense.

    In addition to being a fan of your comics, I'm also a big fan of George R. R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire," and the HBO series based on his books. A few guys over on /tg/ (who are also huge fans of your work) and I decided that the show was perfect for a DM of the Rings/Darths and Droids-style comic, and despite having no experience in the field of writing for comics, I've decided to try my hand at it.

    I really have no idea what I'm doing, so I turn to the expert. On the off chance that you accept - let alone reply to - fan mail, do you have any advice to give?

    Thank you for your time.

    Littledinger is the recurring MAGNIFICENT BASTARD villain. Seriously, with the exception of tossing Bran off the highrise, EVERYTHING in the books is his fault.

    How far is Darths and Droids now, anyway? I stopped reading when I caught up to were he was (shortly after landing on Geonosis at the time) to let him build it up again as I prefer long stints of reading over regular updates. Then I forgot about it for awhile...

    That volcano planet in Revenge of the Sith. Although, they changed it so that the planet is actually Naboo in the process of being forged/terraformed into a Death Star.

    Which is actually more interesting than anything the prequels actually did.

    Lava planet from the end of episode 3. Which is now a bombed-out, devastated version of Naboo. He has confirmed that he's continuing on to the original trilogy, though.

    Thoros of Myr and Beric are totally characters in George's other group who occasionally pop into the main group and do some bullshit stuff.

    George apparently forgot that the Red Priest class can raise people from the dead.

    "This is bullshit, he can raise people from the dead and I can't play a dwarf?!"
