A master and an apprentice.

...

Is this an effective way of consolidating power?

Selfishness and distrust are inherent drawbacks of the Dark Side, it seems.

The greatest strength of the Sith is their greatest weakness: they are so singularly ambitious in consolidating power that they will take any opportunity to have it for themselves at any cost due to the incredible amount of paranoia that only builds up among 2 of them with every new discovery made. Many secrets are forever lost to future generations because even in death these are incredible spiteful, hateful beings.

The bottom line is that if you ever truly wish to be recognized as a Sith Lord among your own kind then you and you alone must be responsible for having done or created something that grants you a legacy transcending death itself. Anything less and you are nobody.

This I never understood about the old and the new sith.
Nowhere in the sith code does it say that you must kill your friends and allies to become stronger. The point of the code is to achieve freedom through power, but you don't really need to destroy your close ones to get that, as it's your choice to be with them or fight for them.
In case of the Force, the strength is a choice. You can backstab and kill your way to power, but in the end it will be nothing but useless shit. A force user with a strong heart will still overcome any jedi or sith that trade their soul and heart for power of knowledge.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that the real Force is the loved ones we found along the way.
>>
A lot of you are missing the point of the Rule of Two. It's not designed to empower or protect any sith, it's designed to select for better and better sith. Could a Sith Lord accomplish more with many followers? Of course. But the point is not to allow a sith to prosper, but rather, slowly improve the quity of Sith over time so that eventually they wouldn't even need followers at all. This did eventually manifest in the closest thing to a "perfect sith"

>Bane ruins the sith order
>centuries later Sheev manages to conquer the galaxy and keep it for like 20 years
>meanwhile thousands of years ago, Tenebrae becomes the cream of the crop and achieves the pinacle of the Sith code- absolute freedom

Could it be considered evil (In terms of the traditional D&D alignment.) to enslave demons if the demons of your world are the literal embodiments of evil and despair that only exist to spread pain, misery, death, and destruction, and bring about the undoing of all mortal beings?

Not asking for any specific game, just in general.

We've planned to talk about it in character over whether we want the guy to stay with us. He's very angry and insists that we and our characters should understand that it was hopeless, his help wouldn't have made a difference and that we should have run away in the first place. One player supports him while the other three, myself included, feel that while he may have been acting in character his lack of aid almost resulted in my own character dying and that his character showed he can't be counted on to support us when we need him most. I told him that if he feels his character hasn't done anything wrong he should tell the caravan master's brother that he left him and the caravan as soon as the worm attacked but he refuses to and says that if his pay was taken he'd quit. So we're at an impasse because I feel that he wants to play a pragmatic and morally dubious character but doesn't want to face the consequences of that while he feels neither he nor his character did anything wrong. What do you guys think?

Well, I see a contradiction in that selfishness. I'm of the opinion that it is about cooperative play and having fun but the player clearly didn't care about it and only pretends to care when it benefits him. And they call him a friend for some reason when he threatens to quit over made up money. He should have accepted the consequences for his actions, not having gotten the money and knowing he wouldn't be trusted.
>>
>>71052031
NAYRT, but the best defense I can give for the runaway's player is simply that he was reacting to an interpersonal dynamic in which the other players were, perhaps, being overly hostile towards him, and therefore sees the withholding of the money as a way of them getting back at him (and not his character). And you know what? It legitimately could've been. Even if denying him money is logical on its own merits (and it is), the other players could've been behaving in a dickish manner.

I get where the author is coming from, but I don't think a RPG system (specifically a story telling system) is a good place to make that political comment or make a therapy session. I do defend it in a sense that its not really meant to be played casually by normal people; from my take away of it, its a experimental piece of art at best, a really creepy way to fetish a tragedy (when the purpose is not to do so).

Yes. You can get 6d6+10 with armor pen (halve armor) kicks without bothering with splat books or unintended combos. Enough to punch through a car door, and kill the guy inside. The real issue with armor isn't armor, but weapon damage. A pistol deals 1d6 damage, the same as a punch.

i would say late 80s at best, not early 80s.
Japan being a dominant power and not having lost decades, heavy metal being popular etc are all from mid-late 80s. CP2020 was mostly published in early 90s so theres that too.
>>
>>71054558
Part of the issue with weapons and armor is with equipment availability and the assumptions of the setting. Your average gang banger on the street is assumed to be wearing a leather jacket and packing a cheap Chinese pistol in his waistband. If the PCs are going around the city decked out in full riot gear and carrying automatic rifles and heavy weapons, then even a horde of basic gutter punks aren't going to be able to put up much of a fight. The only way really get around this problem is to make it realistically impractical for the PCs to go about their daily errands suited up like a SWAT team - regular people are not going to want to have anything to do with a crew of Cybered up nut cases wandering around in broad daylight wearing helmets and flak vests. This, of course, is a huge pain in the ass for the referee to police and the PCs always end up being butthurt about it, but what else can you do? Trimming down the problem pieces of gear from the equipment lists and tweaking armor and weapon stats is another method, but it's a lot of work.
>>
>>71054695
Yeah, but even with well concealed gear you can use some giant killer SMG/Pistols underneath a duster or custom armored trenchcoat. You need to combat the problem from every angle.

I don't know why people complain about their characters dying at level 1.
Your character is at the weakest and you haven't invested anything into the character yet. It's a lot better than your character dying to a random encounter at level 7 (which 5e is designed so that will never happen unless the DM is going full retard with encounters )
Do they just except their characters to never die at all? Or only die when they sign a consent form?

this is commonly accepted but untrue. iq tests are selected based on how indicative the results are. for example, a "good" test is one that accurately predicts outcomes in other tests, whereas a "bad" test is one that doesnt accurately predict the outcomes of other tests. for example, the raven's progressive matrices test accurately predicts outcomes for other nonverbal subtests, meaning people who score high in it are also likely to score high in other nonverbal subtests. a spelling test for example would be unlikely to produce the same results, as there are many other factors that go into the variance in a population found in a spelling test. pattern recognition unlike spelling is something that few people take the time or effort (especially as a young person) to practice, and that combined with its ability to predict other subtest outcomes makes it a) a good indication of a person's nonverbal intelligence and b) a relatively gene-loaded, as opposed to environment-loaded, subtest
>>
>>71053511
i realise that i failed to make clear that according to this whole subtest model, "intelligence" is approximated by a person's score in predictive subtests- and this isnt irrelevant since it also predicts things like academic success, salary and criminality. i would say its a relatively good approximation

But seriously, when somebody sleeps the brain still operates and continuity is maintained. Even in the case of total unconsciousness via brain freezing in which the brain functions are null, the substrate and action potentials stay the same. A copy of oneself is not oneself.

It’d be funny to have a night elf complaining to gyaru elves that they are appropriating their culture.

I still think it begs a lot of questions as to their culture and living conditions. Maybe we should start from scratch and work forwards- figure out where they live and what they’re like.

>>71054401
Tzitzimitlfag here,

It could just be that monsterized night elves disregard the "Safe, Sane And Consensual" bit, going into more depraved aspects of the fetish. Drugging their partner without their knowledge and/or consent, self-amputation, non-lethal guro; after all, healing magic allows for a lot of possibilities, and when you remove that mental barrier that keeps them from going too far? They'll try to explore those possibilities as best they can.

>>71054478
Could be that Zipangu is just a corruption of Nipon as a result of the language barrier. I did have something of an idea as for the differences between Light and Dark Elves in the sense that they have their affinities inverted; Light Elves not having as much muscle mass on average, but higher magical aptitude to compensate, and vice versa for the Dark Elves as a result of being descended from the runaway slaves of the True Fae.
>>
>>71054528
First no. We’re here to have fun. Or at least I am. No guro sir.
>>
>>71054571
I'm not even into Guro. It just seems like the logical extreme of hardcore BDSM, especially when they aren't bothering with their partner's comfort over their own pleasure. And it'd give the more 'vanilla' night elves a very, very good reason to try to distance themselves from their more depraved brethren.

That said, yeah. Probably a bit too far, in all respects.

On an unrelated note, would anyone like a story revolving around the exploration of an Old One facility?
>>
>>71054671
The whole part of bdsm is the safe, sane, and consensual part. Otherwise it stops being sex, and it becomes sex themed torture. Which you’d only bother to add if it was legitimately your fetish or if you are being an edgelord.

Anyway, give me a brief rundown of what you are doing I haven’t been paying attention.
