Well more often than not, some random tried to Captian the team, and picks people at random to force into support roles, and gets turbo pissed if they themselves are asked to switch. They then spend the remainder of the match(s) harassing anyone that asked them to switch, and making them feel bad for pointing out that they should also consider supporting the team as opposed to not doing so.

Then there are the elitist who constantly blame the team for failing them, regardless of how much they have put into the game.

And the hate some people have for some heros, holy shit. There are tons of people who are "You have to play this hero on this map" or "why re you playing this hero, pleb"

I mean, its nothing new. But holy shit, the intensity is a massive jump form matchmaking.

That doesn't change the fact that it's a late-to-the-party cash-in on the weird as fuck popularity of digital TCGs that is also a DotA franchise game at that.

It's like, taking two of the online world's worst things - digital TCGs and MOBAs - and making a stupid ass mash up. Only Valve...

dungeon planet is remarkably fatal if you're not careful. like, it's heavily weighed against player death, but man in low levels some things can accidentally cause a total party wipe.

never ever bring anything with more than 2 spells to a level one party. even though my party included a raptor/bear hybrid because alien rangers are surrealy broken. dungeon planet is a sci-fi skin of dungeon world, which is itself a dungeons and dragons skin of apocalypse world. it's a fun system, it's got a real planetary romance/30s sci-fi vibe to it, with classic pulp tossed in for spice.

Why is that?


For some reason people seem to take issue with most of the items being usefully to only my character, and the fast that my rolls are shit. Their overall attitude really bums me out

☲ Prince Ember Storm!MSNowBALLk  42040195

>most of the items being usefully to only my character

Are you DMing as well and doing that on purpose/subconsciously or is your DM just handing out items that only you can really use?

If it's the former, stop.

If it's the latter, your party needs to talk to your DM instead of getting angry at you.

Shit rolls happen. They shouldn't make the game unfun; they should encourage you to roleplay the failures and improve your character through their faults.


No its just the items we do come across are only of any use to the party as a whole if i use them because i rolled such good stats. I have talked to my dm, and he is thinking of spiting the party up if it gets any worse.

cutting out a small "v" in the middle of your toenails will reduce the pressure your toenail has on the side of your toes

this will basically eliminate ingrown toenails or at the very least act as a really good treatment for them, because your toenails will grow inward towards the v, instead of outwards towards your toe

Sounds like you just found a group of bitches. Bad rolls, as long as they don't kill another player character by accident, can be the best part of the game if you all roll with it. Characters trying to be badasses all the time cheapens actual badass stuff when it happens.
(animated) Weak D&D Characters are better.

Okay this is mostly on your dm. He doesn't sound very creative.
Maybe try talking to him and get him to try to engineer situations where you're not there to use important items at crucial moments so the others have to use the thing.

like, what the fuck, why are yoga pants so comfy? why is there no direct analog in men's fashion? skinny jeans don't count.
