How to roll dice: "dice+2d6" without the quotes in the email field rolls 2d6. "dice+5d42+23" rolls 5d42+23. "noko+dice+2d6" rolls 2d6 without showing the roll in the email field.

In the rules department, you can look at http://www.4chan.org/rules - all global and board specific rules are in full effect. Apart from that, only two rules are important.

It was released today, to backers only. I think you're going to have to be a bit patient.

Not backers. It was released to those who pre-ordered it.
Backers, pre-orders, all the same, you're going to have to be patient unless you happen to know any pre-orderers who are here? No one has admitted to being one yet.

Let's settle this once and for all.

Do necromancers habitually have sex with corpses?
39 replies and 12 images omitted. Click here to view.
...do they come in male?
Easy there, Horatio.
The beast is not mindless however.
There's an Elder Scrolls necromancer who canonically killed villager women and fucked a harem of their mind-dominated ghosts. They even all kill him if you disrupt the thing he's using to control them.

So if it's that mainstream of an idea, the answer is "probably some fuckin weirdoes out there, yeah".
I'm assuming this isn't Skyrim then

What code of conduct would a Paladin of Liberty follow?

AnCapAnon here.

The NAP is a crutch for those unprepared to tack the fundamental philosophical conundrum of "What are human rights?" If you're interested in the answer to that question, I recommend researching "Self-Ownership" and all that it implies.
I can tell you that whatever they look like their battle cry would be either "MUH SOJ-INY!" or "CHECK YOUR PRIVILAGE!"
A Paladin who champions the ideal of the Pursuit of Happiness might be pretty cool actually. He focuses on protection the greatest amount of happiness, and since evil makes most people unhappy, he slays it without remorse. He'd have no trouble with morally grey people as long as their own pursuits of happiness weren't outnumbered by those who they affect.
That would just lead to people forming unofficial organizations and doing the same thing anyways.
Anprims can't talk if they're actually living up to their retarded ideology.

So... you sorta accidentally did science on living krogan?
Well she was quite aggressive.
She wanted to see my lab.
Apparently she finds me very flexible and wanted to play doctor.
And you just happened to have a turkey baster full of Krogan splooge in the lab, or did you induce parthenogenesis?
I'm not on trial here!
You absolutely, positively are.
I'm writing a thesis on Krogan stem cells and how some of their characteristics could be transferred to any species' stem cells without violating Citadel laws on transgenic organisms, and I know there is NO WAY to impregnate a krogan if you aren't one yourself.

I know chromatic dragons are evil, but how are they to their young/their descendants?
Why doesn’t the Beguiling Influence invocation just grant you proficiency in two charisma-based skills of your choice? If my warlock plans to be the party face, then I have to purposefully not take Deception at character creation, which is silly.
Or would the rules allow me to take Beguiling Influence, and choose another skill if I already have Deception?
Evil isn't always violent Anon. You can raise your children to be your clones out of vanity. You can raise them to be tools for your purposes. Hell, you can raise them to be political pawns and worthwhile heirs because your'e not so vain to think you'll live forever. You can even love them... in the way that you love your own reflection.
True, but Invisibility and disgusie self are something you usually want more then one casting in hours if you use them
Hadn't considered that, that's true. Vicious mockery is great but saves can get old.
Oh yeah those.
Well + con makes it better then the base PHB.
The random spells.. are good? There are some really good spells there but the randomness means its hard to say. The bonus to hit points is good, but not as good as fire resistance would be. Should've just been +1 hit points per level.

'Just no' isnt an argument faggot. Casters are literally cancerous in Pathfinder. They are good in the fact they are self-contained and if the whole party uses magic then they are relatively sane power wise, but if you have a fighter and a wizard at higher levels, the fighter doesnt get to play the game anymore beyond protecting the caster fag at which point hes basically a third wheel to the story about caster fag, hero extraordinaire.

Starfinder did right with class balance. Everyone could pick something up, play it and feel they are contributing to the game as a whole. When you add casterfag dickwaving to the equation, your just making the game worse for everyone.
>Homebrewing the Mystic into something akin to a Sorcerer that would actually feel and work like one would be nearly as much work as just converting and adjusting the Sorcerer class

It would be vastly less because you wouldn't need to somehow unfuck the damage numbers for each spell once you're dealing with spell levels the game isn't designed for.

The stupid thing is that we HAVE dedicated casters. The Technomancer and Mystic are both dedicated caster, with most of thier class features about spells or spell like abilities. It's just that the number says '6' instead of '9' and they're actually balanced.
Why are you saying stupid things?! Starfinder is bad! I want to play a Sorcerer! I don't like guns!

If the other players can't keep up with the Sorcerer's damage, that's THEIR fault for not playing fullcasters! I bet the other players in my group don't even play real games with a group of normal human beings.

>says '6' instead of '9' and they're actually balanced.
>they're actually balanced.
Casterfags will never accept this state of affairs. Martials need to be put in their proper place as objectively inferior classes and this needs to be mechanically enforced.

ITT. Post creatures from Magic that are "generic" enough to be used in any fantasy setting, but "specific" enough to be worth using it.

this, it's the reason why the first few spikes were so good (feeder for example), because removing counters should be the cost in itself

I can see that, though I personally thought that the whole Delver of Secrets meta-cycle worked better for that, due to the actual transformation instead of the parasitization and subsequent consumption.

They look cute but i don't understand why they are called spike and how do they would transfer strenght to other creatures. Still, good pick.

Very nice
I'm a big fan of Death Throes effects on monsters.

Is D&D dying?

A year ago, my FLGS would be packed every Wednesday evening for Adventurer's League, and the board for advertising open spots in groups was filled with D&D games. Now the store only has a single group of five that shows up for AL, and the notice board is almost entirely WFRP, PbtA, and SotDL games.

What happened? Is this happening everywhere, or only where I am?
17 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
I would say my tier ranking would be WFRP 4, SotDL, WFRP 2. I think the setting-specific rules are what I really appreciate about the game, makes it feel more cohesive somehow.
The current people working on it are a skeleton crew, Mearls s trapped in the shadow realm, the only shit coming out for the books are more adventure modules, and the people running games have been around long enough that they probably want to make their won shit
fortunately Kate Welch is fuckin great.
Saltmarsh is a great supplement, and it seems like she has all the right ideas about DnD
Is WFRP 4 still using a percentile system? If so, I give it a hard pass, that shit is way more swingy than a typical d20 system which is already plenty swingy.

Black Magic and other similar CYOAs that deal with dark or forbidden magic. The ones that come to mind besides the previously mentioned one would be:
>Poisoned Citadel
>A New Necromancer (Pretty damn hard to make a pure good guy build with this)
>Necromancer by Scientist
>Blood Magic (There's path where you can choose to be a major cunt and destroy the world, though you can also be a neutral bad guy with the other paths)

>Cult of CYOA
>Forces Of Darkness
>Supervillain CYOA (If you're fine with lewd shit)
>Urban Legend CYOA

I'm never DMing for a group with females in it ever again.
>Running 3 year long campaign, close to the end
>Last session one player is real tired because she's been working all day and whatever (we all have)
>She's having fun and RPs great, as usual, for the first hour or so.
>Starts laying down in the couch after 2 hours of gameplay, not participating at all
>The rest of us ask her to at least pay a little attention and that I promise to end the session soon
>She abruptly stands up and starts leaves, telling us that we can keep playing if we want to but she's had enough
>We try to convince her to hang around for 10 more minutes so I can end the session on the planned time and on a nice cliffhanger
>She acts offended and just leaves
>I end the session.
>Wake up this morning to a message from her saying how her mental health is more important than some game and that she's dropping out
>She plays a central character and now I've only got two players for the final boss, the plot is basically fucked.

3 fucking years I've wasted and the campaign is now basically dead. All of us playing are friends IRL also and nobody can understand why she acted in this way, she's usually pretty cool. But because of her fragile femininity she can't handle the tiniest bit of critic and just bails.

Thanks guys
I kinda agree with that. You could do a team of 10 Genestealers without for that also quite neatly.
>the only situation where double rending claws actually has an effect
Not really since they never have two pairs of rending claws. Check the codex - stealers come with rending claws and may also have a pair of scything talons. Talons replace nothing.

Also it's been two years, how long are you going to keep screeching about a game you probably already stopped playing.
These posters are good and right.

This guy is retarded and I bet he even likes Star Wars.
>This abandonment of the gothic/medevial/historical European component to space marines destroys a big portion of what made them stand out and be unique over other types of superhuman space warriors.
Space marines have never expressed a style like that as part of their baseline units to any significant degree.
The Addition of Arbites did not "Advance" anything. It didn't generate new tech, it didn't move stories forward, and it certainly didn't make anything better or worse. It was just a retcon. Hell, at this point 90% of Space Marine Roster are units that were suddenly always there.
>Hell, at this point 90% of Space Marine Roster are units that were suddenly always there.
This is always better than "I swear guys, this guy that contradicts everything about the AdMech just had 10k years to make a better everything and never shared anything with anyone, but he's been there all the time, honest, we just never mentioned, also your marines are now shit because this guys are much better, buy them, please"
