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.

Turn 3:

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.

As many as he needs, because he has a magic sword that absorbs blood from people it cuts, and can store an endless amount.

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.

Conan or Guts.

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?
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".

hey guys. Any recommended OSR games that don't use the to-hit matrix thing? I ain't too fond of these. Just want some quick math. You know - damage minus armor, that sorta thing.
>Just want some quick math
Two plus two is four, minus one that's three.

>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.

uhm, just not have End Times happen
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.
retcon the whole thing
kill archaon
use the storm fo chaos ending
make up your own alternate universe

the possibilities are endless
I meant the elves in general, since the "but much bolt throwers lol" is at elves in general
But I want to advance the setting from the middle ages to WW2 era.

>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.

Fuck if I had known about the sector mechanicus one I would've hopped on that. Hopefully my GW still has one in stock.
There's no way I could be fucked making these to sell so I guess we're safe there.
I can never tell if GW designs this on purpose or if it's a happy accident.

I've got an on-going campaign about rogue trader running inquisitorial errand, with long-term kunnin' planz and xeno artifacts all over the place. Are you interested?
you know, changing the shape of the cartridge really makes me realize how much the design of guns revolves around the cylindrical shape of the bullet.

like this thing >>64078187 has so much more control over where the bullet goes. Only problem is that it would jam like a mother fucker and fail to feed.
The whole line is a failure. Patent for it filed in 1954, company closed in 1962.

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.
>At the end of turn

No Phoenix on the same turn you discard them is a very big downside. Looting is way, way better to enable Phoenix
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.
>it's unfun if I don't win
Actually it was used in Hulk Footsteps for a while before Strategic Planning reprint and other stuff like Taigam's Scheming/Contingency Plan.

Well, anime used the Shellsisters term. And for some reason everyone acted like this was somehow shameful like if mermaids laid crystal eggs.

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.

Is John your real name?
I mean, you can just rename him into Jhun and say it's pronounced "John".

I pull shit like this all the time.
And naming my characters things in my native language that are absolutely stupid just so I can laugh later.
>Is John your real name?

No. I just wanted a unique name. Now I know at first glance "John" seems to be super-generic. But to me the reason it's unique in the D&D universe was already splendidly illustrated for me >>64082451
Hadn't read this one yet, but yeah leaving was the right choice.
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.
