I've always wondered; how effective would it be to turn a guns scope into a cyber eye wired into the shooters brain?
The XM25 was an airburst weapon, so every launcher and every round was packed with some expensive computerized goodness. The Chinese launchers are just low pressure guns firing big ol boolets, and unlike the XM25 or PAW-20 is mostly intended to be fired off a bipod and therefore is not packed full of hard to manufacture recoil reduction. So the whole setup has got to be pretty cheap, enough to make "one in every squad" easily viable even for China.

Places like Pakistan and Chinese client states in Africa already use the things.

I wholeheartedly agree. All I want now is to play a small warband of chaos warriors and marauders, and the occasional mutants, led by a demon.
What comics?
oh, these are fucking oldschool and I love them.
Yeah, I already like kill-team (being a new person introduced to table top) so I love all skirmish games and would love to have where I could make my own stuff for fantasy, AoS, 40k or some other similar universe
I know it for Cronicals de la Luna Negra or Chronicles of the Black Moon, its a French comic tough, so good luck finding the translated version.

I’ve been playing Fate/GO lately, and I was wondering, is there any system that would work well for creating Servant/Servant-based characters, or just characters based off of the Nasuverse in general? Does anyone have any idea what systems would work best for that, if any? Would FATE or Exalted work? PbtA? How would the system need to be modded?

Everyone calls a holy war to genocide them and/or enslave them. That's kinda what we already do to each other so a nonhuman would be getting it worse.

If going first is such a big advantage in chess, why don't we have any handicap rule for the player going second?
7 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Because there are no participation trophies for losers.
There often are, and how the fuck is that related to balancing the game you retard?
Because chess is limited in what you can do to give a handicap. There are no points to gain, cards to draw, or resources to develop. The obvious handicap would be to remove a piece from the player going first, which would be huge.
you're meant to play twice, once as black and once as white.
And what if white wins both times? You just call it a draw or play two more games?
You could probably try something related to movement, like white pawns only moving one field or being unable to perform en passant during the opening turns.

To add onto this, it really depends on the rolls and how smart the GM plays the nymph (which should be very smart considering they have 17 int). They could die in one round of attacks, or they could never take a scratch at all.

Compelled status description says that the spell user can "force" the creature to do something. Does forcing mean that he has to use another action after casting the spell to send an order, or is that free? Also, how would you rule if the order was to inflict self harm?
I think just speaking commands, a free action, works.
Bears are godless killing machines, it's the only logical conclusion.

I'd say it's arguable.

People use Dr. Lovegood to get rid of the Always Be Running directive before.

Find the Truth, and Neutralize All Threats are good for accesses, but Neutralize All Threats has the drawback of a mandatory trash.

Always Be Running has the benefit of breaking ONE subroutine at the cost of the [Click], [Click]. But it also has the drawback of mandatory running first [Click].

Safety First reduces your hand-size by 2 (thereby making it a 3-grip size), which is horrible in a world of Anasi, Obokata Protocol, and the like. But has the benefit of drawing ONE card at the end of your turn if you're < 3 (or higher if you install Beach Party/etc. that raises your hand-size).

Honestly, my original assessment I feel is still apt: Most folks with Adam Decks that didn't do Dr. Lovegood used Independent Thinking (trash up to 5 cards, draw 1 card for each trashed card) to get rid of the hamstringing cards (Safety First, Always Be Running) in the Data and Destiny era.

So, I feel outside of Find the Truth (the straight up busted Directive) getting rid of Adam's other three (main directives) with the exception of like Neutralize All Threats actually BENEFITS Adam if you build around the fact that he won't have his directives.

All I'm saying is that Game Over's art is lazy. There's others like it that are just as bad.

Az McCaffery, Lat, and Chisel and a few other of the Network ones are alright. Nothing amazing, but serviceable.

But ones like Pelangi, Rejig, the Jinteki ID (especially this one!) are like "how the hell did this get past their quality check?"

Pelangi and the Jinteki ID in particular look like they were finalized at a lower resolution than the cards needed because they're blurry as hell.

Apex should be allowed to play Faust as his restricted card. Make him go all in on self-cannibalization because at the moment he has no focus at all, half his cards want him eating his board and the other half want him eating the corp's but they don't synergize with each other at all. It's not like he's got the influence to add anything too broken to go along with Faust.
I could see a Faust-alike as an Apex card, for sure

It's on DriveThruRPG, but we're pretty sure no money from there will go to the original authors anymore because of a lot of shady legal issues with a Chinese company that "bought" the rights and such. That being said, I'm sure you're a resourceful anon. Life, as it were, finds a way.

What is /awg/?
A thread to talk about minis and games which fall between the cracks, or peoples' homebrew wargames. The Historical Wargames General doesn't entertain fantasy (for good reason) and the other threads are locked to very specific games, so this thread isn't tied to a game, or a genre, let's talk about fun wargames.

Any scale, any genre, any company, any minis. Skirmishers welcome. Rules designers welcome.

> Examples of games that qualify
OnePage Rules, Mighty Armies, Dragon Rampant, Of Gods and Mortals, Frostgrave, Ghost Archipelago, Hordes of the Things, Songs of Blades and Heroes, Freebooter's Fate, Dark Age, Beyond the Gates of Antares, LotR and anything that doesn't necessarily have a dedicated thread (gorkamundheim).

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.

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:

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.

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.
