D&D has a long, LONG history of races outside of the "Gygaxian parade" of Elves, Dwarves, Gnomes and Halflings. Which are your favorite races that fall outside of this paradigm? Why do you like them? Are there any ones from past editions that you wish would return? Thri-kreen, dray, muls, goliaths, dragonborn, tieflings, genasi, aasimar, devas - whatever the race is, let's give them some love here!

I always thought 3.5's dragonborn of bahamut would have a lot more potential as some sort of evil dragon cult.
Yeah, but Yuan-Ti are insular supremacists that trace their lineage back to a literal evil cult (of humans). They started out as a group with an alien mindset that THEN became a distinct race.

The playable races in Ivalice are just people. They wouldn't be living in the same society if they didn't have somewhat compatible mindsets, otherwise they'd be out there with the goblins and the baknamy.
kobolds don't have gag reflex
Remember, race is not a substitute for personality
I don't think you're accurate in which you refer to gygaxian and not, but taking this as which playable d&d races outside of Elves, Dwarves, Gnomes and Halflings do I like?
I do prefer those, and I think settings quickly become incohesive when you start adding too many sapient species in a relatively small area.
Tieflings, Aasimar, Thri-kreen and half-giants are probably topping the list for me.
Tieflings are also shit though, but in theory they can be neat.

An aasimar or tieflings here and there doesn't hinder the setting imo due to their inherent mixed heritage.
Genasi haven't interested me yet for some reason, but they could appeal to me more like the other two planetouched races.

>Do you play with any custom rules to tailor your Kill Team experience that you'd consider "outside of the box?"
My original attempt at a KT campaign was derailed but we're hoping to start it up again after Christmas, and when we do (once we've got a feel for the game in general) we want to use something like the old Mordheim injury chart as the current one is a little dull. It'll require some balancing though.
>Do you play with any custom rules to tailor your Kill Team experience that you'd consider "outside of the box?"
We determine LoS from the mini's head/eye level and only count actual body parts when deciding if you can shoot someone or not.

No. It's from an in-development KSP planet pack named Alternis Sol. Basically, it replaces the stock system with modified and rearranged versions of the solar system's bodies.

>What is it that draws you to this board above other boards?
like>>63507020 said, the other boards are quite trashy, i only gave a quick glance to /a/ /v/ and /aco/ and they were mostly fetish requests and boring, tg/ has the most varied and fun requests of all the boards plus the only one with historical armor requests
>Besides the practice, is it worth it?
yeah, shitposting aside the feedback is great, and practice wise i got better since the first time i posted
>And lastly what is a fun or exciting request, in your own opinions?
kinda hard to say, depends on what i feel to do at the time, but in general it has to hit some sweetspots of things i like, sadly there seems to be a lack of requests for bulky sci-fi armors.
oh, maybe. just thought she'd fit the tg theme more
I'm just splitting hairs due to it being a /v/-related character as opposed to a /tg/-related one. If someone takes it, someone takes it. If not, there's another place you can toss the request.
Its probably the only drawthread on the site that isnt just draw my waifu in cute/erotic poses.

The practice is the best part,
Honestly its less about the request but what the reference sheet and description cover, it doesn't need to be autistic amounts of complexity, infact thats more of a turn off and something that should really be a commission, but it should give clear indication of the characteristics that make your character the character, and just a simple pose/direction of the pose, I'm speaking for myself but requester should realize that most of the artists here are not that good(yet) so asking someone to do something really complex is a bit of an issue, and aside from the shitposters I personally wouldn't want to post shit art so I'm not going to attempt something that I know wont turn out too great, and when i do attempt it, I won't post the results if its shit. I'd rather take simpler requests that have smaller challenges to work on so the piece doesn't fall apart and build up to the big projects.

I'm currently running a Kraken Warlock as a major enemy to the party. His eyes were cut out by our rogue in a particularly vindictive move, so I wanted to punish them with plot. After the defeat and capture of the pirates, most of them agreed to hard labour as punishment, but this guy refused and was sentenced to death by drowning - he was offered a deal by a powerful Kraken whilst locked to the seafloor by his iron slippers. Naturally, to cheat death he accepted the Kraken as his patron and swore eternal vengeance on the rogue who took his eyes.

I've managed to slip him into most major plots, and the players still haven't picked up the shared history. The best part is because he's an issue they've never addressed, I've continued to scale him up in difficulty - now that they're realising the threat he and his patron represent he's had time to gather enough strength to be a real motherfucker to beat.
He had an oni sealed inside his body which started fighting for control of it. They spent the first year in a constant willpower struggle while he kept trying to do his job as a sort of exorcist and monster hunter. Finally the oni started to respect it wouldn't win and offered some powers if it was allowed to be a part of the fights by feeling enjoyment and such. Slowly they developed a working relationship where the character brow beat the oni into being less of a cunt, then worked on becoming friends with it. Now they're pretty tight overall, with the occasional spat. Oni even gets to take over the body in some fights now and then.
That sounds dope
He was born into an infernal cult.
My warlock is a Tiefling girl who is destined to save mankind from a wicked Drow. So A Unicorn gave the Tiefling great power to achieve this fate however the power makes the Tiefling do only good when the Tiefling is lawfully evil.
It was extremely fun to play.

I doubt halflings count as monsters
Even besides that i dont know if their up to the task of being state troopers.
I think they're employed as scouts and skirmishers
They should be implemented in total war

Give them stalk and bows the empire could really benefit from the flexibility that would afford them

Make them slow (because of their tiny hobbit legs) they’ll fit right in with the empires theme of multiple normies working together
More expensive versions with cross bows

Cheaper version with this slings

Storythread: because why not?

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:

How much grimdark is too much? At a certain point the grimdark is so heavy that there isn't really a reason to care what happens in the setting, and if you keep lathering on the grimdark after that then it ceases to be taken seriously altogether and just becomes a parody of itself. Warhammer 40k is the most obvious example of this, but there are numerous other settings as well that tread the line (I'm looking at you White Wolf) and teeter on the edge between a depressing and hilarious atmosphere for their games.

>Ancient greeks.
>Conquered by the turks.

Anon, I...
When the dissonance between roleplaying and reality is too extreme. You can't really roleplay a group of holocaust victims, you could imagine to be someone that will suffer and die under a great atrocity, but ro play it seems inappropriate. When the terror is too great that playfullness seems harmful, then its too grimdark for me. When its too real for me, I have no problem to play fictional darkness or an approximation of real events like for example to be tortured or having to escape a authoritan regime/ ongoing genocide. No fiction is too grimdark for me, bit the real suffering of people is something that you can't really play with.
I agree with this anon, but I have nothing against short-sighted cruelty. Ahooting another cadet goes against what a Commissar is supposed to be. It would make more sense if the Commissar Cadet is presented with a prisoner and has the mission to learn everything from that prisoner and than shoot him. Maybe after both worked together.

What I mean with shortsighted cruelty is that stupid and unnecessary evil stuff does happen but it won't endure its own cruelty. Some Schola may go that demented of ordering a Commissar Cadet to shoot his best friend but that's because Principal is insane and that system won't be practised much longer afterwards.>>63504465
I disagree with the assumption that someone needs to believe on a better world. A simple survival instinct is enough for a motivation, its very primal and understandable.

Sounds like the skinwalkers are making another move. Get the ash.
Fuck, not the creature I’d like to deal with today. If they’ve made it this far into the Demon Hunter Guild of NZ, and the New Zealand Catholic Church’s very own sanctioned Hunters, it going to be a full on effort on the part of the Australian Church Sanctioned Hunters and the Demon Hunter Guild of Australia just to dislodge them. We might have to pull resources from Papua New Guinea and Indo-China just to clear NZ out.

Any suggested strategies?
Well, it honestly depends on how long they've been impersonating someone. If they're just starting like your last post seems to suggest, you can probably catch them out by them not knowing something really basic like how to use a cell phone. Aside from that, they're deathly afraid of fire and hate dogs with a passion. As for combating them, I like to just dump a shitload of sanctified ash and silver shavings into the air to choke them. Be sure to burn the bodies.
Sounds like a good plan. I’ve informed the Church and the Guild about these possible skinwalkers, we’re currently setting up to deploy a task force of around 50 hunters to Auckland, and another task force of 100 hunters to Wellington. It’s a large amount of hunters, and it only through luck that we have so many in Melbourne at this moment to use in such a manner (the Christmas Hunter’s conference will be on soon), but if the skinwalkers were able to get into the Guild and Church hunter ranks without being identified and dealt with, then there is a big problem. The absolute silence, and the disappearing contacts as mentioned earlier by a Hunter above, coming from NZ doesn’t help stop our increasing suspicions that something big is going on. The Guild and Church higher ups certainly don’t seem to want to take their chances.

Will update upon arrival.
Well, we know why we haven’t heard from anyone, there’s some kind of unholy meet up going on. Auckland and Wellington are both crawling with demons and their ilk. We haven’t yet found any NZ hunters as of yet, there Guild hall looks like a mess, and the Church’s hunter accomodations are abandoned. We’re currently splitting into teams of ten and setting out to look for where they may be gathering.

Pray for us, we suffered three deaths when we landed in Wellington, the fuck knuckles got lured away by a couple succubus; it’s always the succumbs that get the rookies. Thankfully the Auckland taskforce hasn’t yet suffered any casualties.

Hello, /tg/. I'm gay, and as a result the characters I play are usually gay, because it's what I know. But lately, I've decided to make my most recent character in a game with my group straight. Branch out and play people different from you, you know. My question is: how do I roleplay a convincing "straight" character? What do I need to do to makse my character seem like a straight guy, and not just a gay guy that's attracted to women?

If by "implied" you mean "left uncommunicated to stakeholders and hence created a firestorm of ill-informed condemnation by morons jumping to conclusions", then yeah, I seem to recall something like that

But the root cause of all that misplaced hate is also and ultimately, Jordan fucking Weisman, as usual
The very first piece of DA material ever released is a short that takes place on a world in the Federated Suns. The RotS is certainly all that was focused one plotwise though and that's what people hated. The main powers were like your relatives that only visited at Christmas.

>aggregate statistics

Those tend to be just as bias because people have to get the statistics in the first place and it would be on something majorly subjective. Taking statistics at their word is also a bias in itself. Which lets people get a lot of bullshit through by claiming a number without explaining the how.

What would you do if one of the members of the party started to flee the fight when it was going bad? As a DM or player, what would your reaction be?
