Because it's boring, like Delver without skill
So like Delver.
Delver requires some skill.
This is like Delver with no skill.
monoU is basically an aggro deck you can't do anything against rather than a true tempo deck, so it combines the inherent dumbness of aggro people hate, with the "can't do anything" feeling of control. i'm actually surprised more people don't hate it.
curious obsession is the only thing unfair about trannyblue tempo, the rest of it is totally fine as is

>What is Exalted?
An epic high-flying role-playing game about reborn god-heroes in a world that turned on them.
Start here: http://theonyxpath.com/category/worlds/exalted/

>That sounds cool, how can I get into it?
Read the 3e core book (link below). For mechanics of the old edition, play this tutorial: http://mengtzu.github.io/exalted/sakuya.html
It’ll get you familiar with most of the mechanics.

>Gosh that was fun. How do I find a group?

True, but the Wyld is literally infinite, it's not inconceivable for an army of cataphracts to be formed.
Ideal Solar Circle is clearly the name of the greatest Twilight geometer of the Age, though.
More along the line of the teenage shonen hero
Someone who would do that, is not playing exalted. Just another self insert
>By the way, do we have the 3CD stats the devs were promising for two years now?
There going to be weak as shit now so who cares. Probably essence 6 but that doesn't mean anything when essence 6 is just as strong as essence 5.

Does /tg/ do homebrew games of Alternate History? If so, do you want to share stories or the Scenario you used? Currently doing a game in which the Confederates States of America won its independence. The year of our current session is around the mid-1890s. With the Confederates losing a war with the Second Mexican Empire and subsequently losing Texas and the Arizona territory.

>Do you consider the CSA suicidal?
It was pretty suicidal to start the war in the first place. The fire eaters got their death wish.

So it is literally 'they totally would have gotten rid of it'. When would they have done so, when the constitution enshrined slavery? Not likely for multiple generations.
Stop deflecting and answer the questions.
And when that happens, they get called out for it.

Is it okay to fight for modern morals in a fantasy setting? Suppose you're in a setting where things like slavery and absolutist monarchy are viewed as morally good institutions, and there's not really any popular movements to remove these institutions, would it be okay to play the weirdo who wants to fight against these systems because you like playing the good guy?

Now I extremely want to play a Spartacus style revolution campaign (yes I know he lost)

Sounds like Capitalism.
I would talk that over with your DM. If he's cool with that as a motivation for your PC then go for it. Otherwise, the two of you would be at cross purposes ans neither of you will have fun.
Yes, it is still good to fight for modern-day morals- morals are not something that change over time, slavery was always immoral. It's just a matter of picking your battles. Like, don't focus on overthrowing the half-decent monarchs, focus on the worst of the worst monarchs first. Don't upset society for the sake of it, find the worst egresses of society to address first and work your way up.

The soil of every nation is an arena, a stamping ground, where only the most vigorous animals may hope to hold their own. What is all history but the epic of a colossal campaign, the final Armageddon of which is never likely to be fought, because, when men cease to fight— they cease to be — Men.
This old earth is strewn to the very mountain tops with the fleshless skulls and rain bleached bones of perished combatants in countless myriads.
The evolution (ovr de-volution) of mankind demands the perpetual transfiguration of one man into another, continuous re- incarnation, eternal re-birth and re-construction. Scientifically considered, the 'resurrection of the dead' is not an illusion. Every living organism is formed from the decomposed essence of pre- existent organisms. The 'man' of to-day is actually built out of the grave-mould of his prototypes; perhaps of ages long forgotten. Thus, without death there could be no birth-material; and without conflict, fierce and deadly, there could be no surpassing.
Under natural conditions, there is no haven for the wretched, no hope for the weaklings, no resting place for the weary, no quarter for the beaten. Nature loathes Infirm Ones. Every organism, every human being, must conquer or serve. This is an Ultimatum.
Undoubtedly new born infants are daily coming wailing into this world, with the words —statesman, tramp, wastrel, warrior, priest, philosopher, criminal, thief, king, slave and coward, indelibly branded upon their brows, their hearts and their brains.

How do you like Aminatou 1.0 design? Why do you think it wasn't allowed to be printed on a card?
21 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
I feel like going too creepy also didn't quite work with the character they had planned for it. They didn't really write Aminatou as evil or sinister so much as just generally kind of weird and spooky. Also the decision to include the fishnet floating thing was a good idea, it really makes her look unearthly, and kind of looks like the wings of the moths around her.

It's kind of ironic how Urza got erased from history. Only his robot son's entry mentions him, and almost nothing about the other oldwalkers. As a kid I used to wonder who they all were, not having access to the lore.
I can't think of any of the new characters that are interesting enough to pick up their books.
I still don't know where it was said that Aminatou is so powerful.
Yes, changing fate is a great power, but it was never stated HOW powerful she is and how far he power reaches.

Well, in Dominaria set at least there were quite a number of mentions of oldwalkers.
For interesting new characters, imho Dack Fayden is nice

The two Theros books are a pretty nice read. Elspeth is a very interesting and ultimately very tragic character, and there are a couple parts of those books that hit me really hard. Ajani being there is just icing on the cake at that point, given that he's the most consistently enjoyable nuwalker. I didn't really like Theros as a set too much, but in terms of plot it was great.
I still ship them.

It's a mix of that and STD just flatly retconning parts of TOS as 1960s tech limitations, starting with the technological look and feel of the 2250s era.

The Storythread returns, resurrected from the tomb of the archive by the dark will of the writefags.

This is a thread for creative writing of /tg/-related fiction, so epic campaign greentexts and other non-fiction go elsewhere. If you have /tg/ related stories to post, post them here, and hopefully some kind anon will give you feedback (or at least acknowledge that someone did actually read it, which let's face it is what writefags really want).

What counts as /tg/-related? Anything someone could plausibly use in a campaign (which means basically anything if you have enough imagination).

If you don't have a story ready then I and other anons will be posting pictures throughout the thread for you to test your writing skills on. This is, more or less, a world-building and character-building exercise: two vital skills for playing roleplaying games. If you don't have any pics to post, you could try posting an idea for a setting or a character, and maybe someone will be willing to write a story using it. It's also an exercise in writing though, where writefags can try out their material and gain inspiration, so if you just want to talk about world-building you may want to head over to the dedicated world-building threads.

Remember that writefags love to have feedback on their work. Writing takes a long time, especially stories that go over several posts, and it can be really depressing when no one even seems to read it (and the writer won't know you read it unless you leave a comment).

And since writing takes a long time remember to keep the thread bumped. Pics are good, feedback is better.

There is a discord for writers:

It's almost like DnD's fanbase is mostly retarded.
Avenger. also class balance would be nice. I miss 4e.

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.

Good maybe DnD will fucking die and we can start talking about GOOD games on /tg/. Especially since the old fallback, Pathfinder, went ahead and committed sodoku with Pathfinder 2e.

I haven't been paying attention to Pathfinder. What have they done now?

Say that I wanted to make a character based on one of the characters from the She-Ra reboot, or a previous generation of Princesses/She-Ra, what system would be best? Any thoughts? The last thread mentioned PbtA, how would that work? FATE?

That would be Prince Adam, not He-Man.

Also, do starting level characters tend to start out with ridiculously powerful artifacts?
Isn't Prince Adam He-Man?
No, He-Man is Prince Adam.

Came up with the idea of the book outstretched much later, and I'm realising for the composition to work I'm going to have to mirror the boomers so the book is more or less in the centre of the frame, but it doesn't matter too much because I've just looked down and realised I put the buttons on the wrong side anyway, so I just need to redraw the book and change the beer text (impossible to read but it's called Old Groggy).

You might be struggling there, it's been a popular colour of late but mainly for women, and though I saw a mustard cardy on Asos I'd expect the proper knitwear manufacturers to be a bit behind the fast fashion brands.
God speed you mad bastard.

Why are you drawing me and my mate, though.
My submission for the community project:

Three Condottieri-class CL's, which were intended for scouting and for countering the Marine Nationale's Contre-torpilleurs, Giussano, the namesake of the first sub-class, and Duca d'Aosta and Eugenio di Savoia, both ships of the second subclass.

The US ships are USS Juneau, an Atlanta-class, and USS Alaska, namesake of her class.

Greetings, bags of mostly water. The local Archmagos Hugh-Monn has ordered this unit to report to the closest manufactorum to have this unit copied and produced a dozen trillion times, in order to ship the new units to terra for additional groundskeeping and water purification assistance. Would you please provide this unit with the coordinates as well as any security clearence this unit will need in order to bypass the unnecessarily long security protocols. Archmagos Killtron-4000 also requires 1.2 trillion units for mars terraforming efforts with expedience.

This is probably the most fun, most original, and best-looking model they've put out in the last 12 months
I actually prefer to imagine the "man of iron" aspect that is important is the programming itself rather than this suit of armour and this unit is just for ease of infilitration. It prob had all sorts of super advanced war suits during the age of strife.
I honestly kinda like how it looks like a late 50s kitchen appliance with that paint job.
This tbqh I don't get why people are reeeing. 40k has always had a retro aesthetic, it makes perfect sense and actually looks pretty awesome. Is it just grognards crying because it isn't like their mental image from back in the day?
