>>64083120 >>64082994 From the looks of this, Excellency then Fivefold Bulwark looks like the smartest idea. It lets you start laying down the hurt on the enemy instead of defending for three turns straight.
Turn 1, Full Defense as you Excellency. Turn 2, Fivefold Bulwark and attack.
At this point, Vlad is seriously wondering what the fuck is going on. How is this girl still alive? No. Back up. How is she this good with a sword? He's been alive for over 600 years and never once in that time has a mere mortal withstood his full power.
He wins initiative. 2 BP on Celerity, 3 attacks
The Solar spends 1m on Iron Skin Concentration to make soak rolls at -2 diff.
First attack: Vlad rolls 0 successes due to 1s. Poor vampire.
Second Attack: Vlad rolls 3, Solar rolls 5 despite -1 die and +1 diff, miss
Again, on the third attack, Vlad hits. A nasty 4 threshold successes; the -2 dice and +2 diff for the Solar's defense is just too much to deal with against a dice pool the size of Vlad's, especially being as wounded as she is.

>>64083245 Yeah, its definitely better if you survive turn 1. The problem is that even with 20 dice you're making that third defense with -2 dice at difficulty 8... he could easily land that third hit.
Furthermore, with the compromises you have to make in soak to get the max dice pool, he might 1 shot you.
The only thing I know about Conan is two films with Schwarzenigger, and Conan in those isn't even close to Guts, even Golden Age one. Don't know about book Conan much, but from what I've get, he is just pinnacle of human ability. Guts transcended human ability after Eclipse.
I don'tr know Berserk, but as far as I understand, Guts is also considered a military genius. So is Conan. So if we take personal combat out of the way, who wins then? How about the older, wiser, less selfish King Conan who cares for the common man, but is surrounded politicking snakes? Does Guts ever experience the same?
>>64074343 They aren't just magical items, they are an established part of his character and used in the narrative way to pronounce his character traits.
That's like saying "Hey Wolverine vs Conan who win?" and going "Well conan could also get special snowflake metal skeleton, healing factor and bitchclaws to level the playing field. You are technically right, if we ignore context, how characters are defined and basic tool of writing, so you are technically right if we consider that you are an man of pitiable intellect I hope you stub your toe
Conan is a better character but guts is a lot strronger, guts can dodge attacks from supersonic enemies like Rosine, and in the berserker armor fight apostle level enemies who could casually slaughter armies of 10k
In a straight up death battle, Guts wins. In just about anything else, I'd bet on Conan.
They're both the equivalent of max level character, but with different styles. Guts is like that guy who doesn't take any skill unless it helps him make things dead faster, while Conan is more well rounded.
If the challenge is "kill X", Guts wins 99/100 times because that's what he does. But if the challenge is, say, dumping them naked in the wilderness and saying "see you in a year for evaluation" Conan is the obvious winner from the start because his skill set involves more than "kill nasty things good".
Jumpers! Did you know Jar-Jar is a Jedi now? How did you, yes YOU, train him in the ways of the Force? Also be honest, how many of you genuinely thought he was a Jedi until looking up Star Wars Age of Republic Special #1?
>>64083176 >>While your level won’t reflect what you gained before now,things that improve training, learning, and fighting ability can speed up your growth a little for each source of ‘help’ you have, though don’t expect to blaze through levels every five seconds.
>>your level won’t reflect what you gained before now,
At least use plausible flamebait

>>64082464 >usually checked for once a day, but the DM may make additional checks if appropriate >don't make more than 3 or 4 though Reading comprehension, my bro. It isn't telling you to roll 3-4 checks per day, it's telling you to never do more than that under any circumstances. "Don't go hog wild", basically.
It's fairly easy to imagine a case where PCs are doing some attention-drawing shit that would require more rolls *for that day*. That's all that note is really there for, to tell the novice DM that ruling an increase in encounter chances is fine, but don't overdo it.

>>64083260 Kill Archaon. The reason why Archaon sent Crom first and then the Glottkin was to soften up the South before the main Chaos host arrived. He knew if he went in first there might be a decent chance that someone might get lucky and kill him which would have ended with Chaos tearing itself apart.
>>64083188 >I've been working on a tank factory for a while
I bought a lot of my stuff to build an ad mech train station a while back and make a modular board of 1'x1' tiles for kill team, but that fell through because my friends won't play anything but 2k points games.
Everyone is a bit tense nowadays. The thing about 3d is, it is exactly the same thing as 2d art. Just like how GW cant stop people from doing art based on their designs even if the art is the exact copy of it, print it and share it. They cant do anything about 3d printed ones. Dimensions don't change anything. They can try to nuke you if you try to sell them though.
Yesterday my playgroup tested the new legends from ravinica (Vanifar was shit desu), I played the new Tesya Aristocrat Style, I foud myself full of sack-outlets but no value creatures to kill, any suggestions? http://tappedout.net/mtg-deckpaste/tesya-krlob-1/

>>64080277 scroll is abysmally slow on acrobat, if you mean zoomed out,1 scroll/1page then thats too small for me to read the text. And no, if i have 6+ windows with the same name open and im running a game and I have to listen to people talk then I really cannot remember which one was what.

>>64083009 The only question is what you take out? I think it is exactly what you want to do in that deck, sometimes a better looting, but the 2 mana cost might be too much when you want to cast 3 spells. Test it out.
>>64083159 Yeah, but this can actually reload your hand, which Looting cannot do. Looting is a way better setup that lets you sculpt a hand in the early game and ditch Phoenixes, but Ideas Unbound off the top can actually let you get in three spells later. It can be risky if you cast it with a hand that already has action, but setting up for it could be very nice.

>>64082468 That's not bad DMing. Letting any retard through is worse than displaying some basic common sense and the ability to say no. You could just change it slightly, maybe to Johan or something, so it wasn't even bad for you.
>>64076588 Whenever I read these threads I'm looking for things to avoid as a DM and I'm always nervous at the start of stories that I'll recognize myself in the described DM. But then I read stuff like this and I go "hey, maybe I'm not so bad" because that's just fucked up.
