What are you resisting?

Postby satbunny » 9:44pm on 14 Nov 16

I am resisting Volo's Guide to Monsters, how about you?

Why would you want to resist Volo's? It's great. Fun art, random marginal notes from Volo and Elminster, rules for playing Kenku and cat people (and other slightly more sensible races), and modifications to combine "mind flayer" with "lich". For when you really hate that all your players are cat-, bird-, or snake-people.

(I was tempted by the Mythras Sci Fi scenario, perhaps to try to run with NEW, but will probably avoid it in case someone in the Wednesday group runs it at some point.)

Resisting everything! Just had a big binge on Gloranthan materials after the God's War and think I might need to go on a quest or two to pay for it all...

Not really a correct response to the question but I seem to be conductive rather than resistant to anything this month!
2 bundle of holdings OSR and TOR
Volos Guide on pre-order (although it should be out today here)
Shadows of the Demon Lord Hunger in the Void
WWII Operation Whitebox and all supplements

It's a nightmare!!! :D

Resistance will be sorely tested at Dragonmeet. First, I have nothing to buy from Pelgrane and C7 as I have what I already want. Which means that that period between the first gaming slot and when we leave at around 5-6 is going to be a little browsetastic. Okay, say I take a hour for lunch. Then an hour in a seminar. That leaves 1-2 hours where I'm vulnerable.

Friends would come up and pull me aside from any stand and wag a finger in my face. Be my friend.

I'm not resisting anything.

I bought it. All of it. Yes, and that too.

You didn't quite buy all of it. I have some of it too. Between us there is likely very little left now.

The trouble with not resisting is that I currently feel guilty for having read none of the pre-release versions of Delta Green, UA3, Conan, and Coriolis - and possibly others - which I've received emails about recently!

I did resist the licensed games humble bundle. But mainly because I had PDF copies of at least half of the books on offer.

Should I continue to resist the Buffy and Angel Bundle of Holding? The shows were good fun, but I guess I'd use Monsterhearts or some other PbtA to run that kind of game now.

I am currently resisting the new RuneQuest 7 at the moment.
Though hearing what is happening with it from Chaosium is making the resistance easier! :D
Cheers,

Judging by the look of our shelves I think this applies more to me than to you ... :oops:

I'm still resisting The Last Parsec and Lankhmar for Savage Worlds and all except the Core Rulebook for Mongoose 2nd Edition Traveller. I will resist CoC 7th Ed.

I continue to successfully resist Cold War Cthulhu, Esoterrorists, Fear Itself and Nights Black Agents.

My resistance is faltering on Crestfallen, and 2017 will see me buy more of The One Ring. 8)

I'm still - just - resisting City of Mist. It looks fun, but part of me wonders if I'll run it.

I know I discussed it at the old Tavern, but I'm getting comfortable by bringing old topics back.
