I dunno how to sell this, so I'll just spit it out; I have a setting I'm putting together for myself, born out of my interest in Ravnica, Planescape and Necromunda, and my dissatisfaction with the GGtR. I have a ton of races I'm working on, and I need to homebrew the crunch, so because there's nowhere else to ask, I'm resorting to asking /tg/ for help in figuring out stats and balancing what I've got - I have gotten some good results here in the past. Any 5e fans not afraid of homebrew interested in giving me a helping hand?

Setting doc, just in case people are interested. All questions welcome. Except "why not just use Ravnica", because I'm sick of answering that one.

Also, I am very much interested in developing/expanding upon racial lore, but I figure /tg/ ain't into that, so I want to push the crunch thing first and foremost.

Yep. Maxed-out Striking Looks and a boatload of social skills makes it easy, although he didn't have much time for it as a mortal
>Vampire
Got a couple of these. nWoD vampire *is* a virgin, as he's a Good Mormon Boy who was Embraced before he was married. oWoD vampire is probably not a virgin (he's an accomplished and incredibly wealthy surgeon), but it never really came up because oWoD vampires don't have sex drives.
>Exalted

Not a virgin, although thanks to Exalted being Exalted his specific stat array does mean he has basically zero sexual stamina

Not a virgin, although she had serious issues around sex

What do you think ? He is in no serious relation tough, mainly because he realised quickly his supernatural ability where the thing drawing normal people to him (not only for romantic or erotic relation, but for basicly all social relation) meaning he tend to avoid "abusing it". That's also why he was super happy to meet the current group because it was one of his first time meeting Scion and he's happy he got real buddy now.

He had relation when younger, but obviously being locked into a armor mean he is light on relation now, and he is too much of a melancoliafag anyway

No physical form so technically a virgin, but has smart-linked into one of the crewmember's sex toys to help them relieve stress. Extremely vanilla, no prior romantic relationships.

/tg/ is bad at magic and doesn't understand value engines, anon. It's why every single one of them has somehow lost to a group hug deck; they never realized that giving each player one hug a turn means you've gained a hug per player each turn

Grouphugs are literally casualfag tier though. You might be drawing 3 cards per turn instead of my 2 cards per turn, but how do you know I'm not a degenerate combo deck? God forbid the grouphug player plays a Mana Flare type effect, that's a shitstorm a brewin'.

Personally I hate grouphug because it disproportionately rewards the player immediately following the grouphug player, instead of everyone equally as the archetype advertises. If it's me, it feels like I'm cheating, if it's somebody else, it feels like I'm playing against a cheater.

Council of Wyrms was an incredibly awesome setting for AD&D 2nd edition, which centered on a peninsula(?) where dragons ruled over populations of demihumans, with humanity being relegated to a mysterious, little-explored continent across the sea. It is most famous for two things: introducing the Half-Dragon to D&D, and allowing PCs to play as actual dragons - metallic, chromatic or gem. Now, it's languished in obscurity so far, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to poke /tg/ and see if anyone would be interested in discussing reviving it for the latest edition?

Kneejerk thoughts:
>You can't play as true dragons anymore; 5e can't handle that kind of epicness.
>Instead, dragons are the god-kings that rule over the "known world".
>Your party represents an elite band of troubleshooters and enforcers for the Council of Wyrms.
>Available races:
>>Dragonborn
>>Kobold
>>Spellscale
>>"Dragonblooded" subraces for Dwarf, Elf, Gnome and Halfling - ideally, these would actually be more interesting than just dragonborn rip-offs.
>Bigger focus on the trouble caused by human invaders

>>65242822

If you are looking to make a spellscale for this concept, wouldn't it be an idea to refluff the tiefling for it? You have a humanoid with odd skin and some inhuman features, a charisma boost, an elemental resistance (that is easy enough to make bloodline dependent) and different bloodlines to choose from. The most work would go into tweaking to bloodlines away from the obvious infernal influence to a more draconic flavour.
>>
Can anyone think of any cool dragon-themed subclasses that'd be a good mesh for this setting? Say, a Dragon Patron for the Warlock?
>>
>>65243360

You could refluff the paladin of conquest with it's mass of fear effects as inspired by dragonkind, like the old dragon lord from 3.5.

If you are interested in making new subclasses, you could make a draconic barbarian, one based around intimidating and/or dealing extra elemental damage.

Crawford likes magic too much to allow for a more balanced contender. If we ever see psionics, it'll be a flavor of sorcerer, simply due to the fact that they've traditionally used points instead of slots and sorcerers are the only ones who have such a luxury right now.

We'll probably also never seen anything more than the basic classes we've got right now. Anyone who thinks that the artificer is going to get added to the lineup just because it got an Unearthed Arcana entry is only fooling themselves.

They're just trying to let 5e die a slow and painful death so that they can rerelease it all in a new edition that's smartphone- and tablet-friendly. There will be a subscription system, where you pay something like ten bucks a month and get access to True D&D©®™. And because they don't want to have to deal with physical copies that need errata or updates or reprints, they'll just make everything a PDF, and I do mean everything. You want the Player's Handbook? You have access because you subscribed. DMG? Same. Monster Manual and other miscellaneous books? You got it. What about previous editions? They've got your back, because they went back and found all the old pirated copies and their creators, and made a deal that would allow them to trot those out to you. They'll probably also have a chat, a forum, and a Looking For Group app, so you can play pretend with people in your area. And what stupid enterprise of this nature would be complete if they didn't also host your character sheets for as long as you're subscribed?

They're already heading in that direction. I just hope it fails so that others don't follow suit.

Giant Magical Titans that emulate the PCs abilities should be the end game for all high fantasy. Fight me!

Let's talk about some old ass games. After D&D came out there were many competitors coming out of the woodwork, and many people trying their own things. The 70's was a time of invention and discovery. What's your favorite game from the period (besides the obvious).

Personally I love the 1st edition of Tunnels & Trolls, it's just a really fun read

Early wargames from the 50's and 60's are welcome as well.

Twilight: 2000 is a game from 1984 set in the year 2000 following the outbreak of world war 3. In the years leading up to the turn of the century, nuclear bombs have been dropped on almost every major population center, economic center, and areas of natural resources. The world is a barren anarchy with desperate locals turning to cannibalism. You are drafted by the rotted corpse of the US government to fight the sparse amounts of soviet and german troops in Poland. With little command structure, your squad is left to its own devices to raid the polish countryside for ammo and supplies, while paying mind to professional troops, irregular bandits, and unexploded ordnance that can silently kill by emitting radiation.
