From London, whose parents sent him to Canada for getting into too many street fights. That's when he learned to ride and shoot." "... and what does this have to do with China, Abe?" "He saved a Chinese restaurant owner in Saskatoon from a racist thief by beating the guy up and returning the Chinaman's stolen property. In gratitude, he was inducted into Sun Yat-Sen anti-Manchu secret society. After he served in the Great War, this connection got him invited to post-Qing China." "Holy shit, Abe. I'll allow it."

>>69820060 The retard is you, Mister "reglementary." Officer's swords of the British military of the time were all smallswords, even if you were a member of a Highland Regiment or the Black Watch. The claidhmore, a Scottish basket-hilted broadsword, was nobody's designated sidearm at the time.
He also did carry a longbow, and has a confirmed kill with it.
Calling him "Mad" was his troopers' way of avoiding fights. If the Nazis thought their commander a lunatic, fighting him would be a less attractive option.

What is the correct way to play a lawful good paladin?Anonymous12/07/19(Sat)16:04:11No.69822416[Reply]
I am newer to DnD and I am thinking my first character is going to be a avenging or vengeful paladin I think its called? I wanted to be lawful good but a friend was telling me that paladins can sometimes put a damper on games if they don't play as more neutral. Like imagine if you have a neutral rogue in group and you are lawful good? Wouldn't that cause innate conflict? I know alignments don't matter that much but I am really going to try and roleplay. I don't want to play it more like a MMO loot sim or something.
If you have played or have played with any lawful good paladins. What was it like?
>>69822416 1. You're a retard 2. LG can do fine with any non-evil folks. You see, LAWFUL means you abide by written codes. GOOD means you aren't a selfish backstabbing crook. You are a LAWFUL GOOD person, not a WALKING BOOK OF LAWS! You want to help people in an organized manner. You are NOT going to tattle on a rogue if you see them steal from a bad person. You do NOT obey laws you deem malicious, evil, cruel, etc. You do NOT break laws you deem right, proper, honest, yadda yadda. If an ally must BREAK one for the greater good, you will let them, but not participate. If an ally attempts to break a law with no regard for the innocents they harm, you STOP THEM. You are NOT a boring sponge of goodness. You have FLAWS, BELIEFS, IDEALS. Sometimes you come into inner turmoil over problems that can't easily be solved. You do NOT murderhobo. CHAOTIC NEUTRAL CHARACTERS ARE NOT MURDERHOBOS EITHER!
>>69820856 That was only for Garden of Avalon. She said she intended to originally, but since people had already made builds she was going to leave it at it is. Also in Garden of Avalon the new group companion can purchase 800 CP perks. >>69820708 I would say Goetia is still relevant. The extradimensional gods are just extradimensional. Not universal or anything like that. >>69820615 They don't really have a way to kill Goetia. Phenex will keep respawning the collective endlessly. And if they are in the Time Temple, they really don't have a way to reach it.
>The 'noble savage' trope was initially a subversion of the 'evil savage' trope, but it became so common that 'evil savage' became a fresh subversion of 'noble savage' and now 'evil savage' is becoming so popular that 'noble savage' will inevitably become fresh again. Is fantasy destined to become nothing more than ever-increasing layers of subversion, as new authors try to pretend that they're more ground-breaking than previous authors by subverting yesteryear's tropes?

ITT original monsters with special gimmicks:
>A pataphysical apparition, which will stalk those who's closed their soul to the world, and suffer from bouts of dissociation. They will consume those who do not reestablish a connection with the world, and see the light in life once more, enveloping them and escorting them to the other place. One is rather easy to escape the grasp of, however, Whenever someone falls under the impression that they are being followed by one, they will be correct. Paranoia becomes the downfall of its victims, as more and more manifest from incidents where an individual begins to believe they were already there, gradually getting worse and worse until the mere sound of a floorboard creaking becomes enough to convince a victim of another presence.
It's 3.25e. No, it's not good. Honestly, just file the Golarion serials off of Pathfinder and just slap 'AZEROTH' flavor over everything, and it'll work just fine. Hell, Path of War even replicates the semi-gonzo pauldroncore power level of Warcraft.
>>69818734 >Any suggestions? Yeah: don't. GMPCs are for faggots who can't write, can't plan, and can't recognize patterns to save their life. Let the PCs be the PCs and write their own backstories, including any mentors IFF they want one. Then play what they make as NPCs.
I have a GMPC, but all he is is the party's bus driver and magically exposition fairy for when I need to dangle a plot hook in front of them. When the inevitably don't take the bait he just sits casually in the background driving them to where they want to go.
>>69822524 This shit is the way to go. It isn't bad to have an npc that is your mouthpeice in the world, but don't impinge on the players agency and and don't make them some sort of idealized self insert/magical realm shit. Why do you think they need a mentor?
>>69821244 I really can't stand Japanese music from World War 2, in fact I don't really like anyone's military music from that time except the Germans'. If I'm playing anything Japanese military related, Shogun 2s soundtrack is great. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OwJ1EpxiWb4
>>69822134 American sources on the Japanese Empire understandably tend to focus on all the negative aspects of their society, not to mention all the warcrimes, while he presented a view that was more positive, but still a culture that was effectively completely alien to western sensibilities. He talked a lot about how while westen societies are built around individual liberties and belief in sanctity of human life, Japanese society at the time was focused on the idea that for Jpan to prosper and become a major player in the world the people had to be willing to make sacrifices for the good of the nation as a whole, and how dying in battle wasn't seen as nearly as big of a deal than in the west due to the spirits of your ancestors playing a much more active role in the Shintoist fate. Even if you died in battle, it was believed you spirit would keep looking after your family so you'd never be fully separated from them.
I wouldn't want to live in a society like that, but he did make it still feel relatable and human, rather than just a bunch of warcriming assholes banzai charging enemy machinegun nests.
