>Jägermech explodes when you sneeze at it, though

that's what always bothered me, though. According to the lore, the Blackjack was looked down upon, and Feds turned to the jagermech, when the BJ-1 has heavier armor, and equal firepower, to the JM-6, with magrinally worse range, since it has MLs instead of AC5s, but the BJ has jump jets on top of everything.

And it still took the IS years and years to realise it wasn't a bad mech.
>>
>>66352992

Ideal 3rd War engagement range argued against the Blackjack.

When people got tired on a Jaegermech's shit and headed on over, they'd get their shins kicked in to death. Blackjack would probably have to run like a Marik on Loric or die.

tl;dr version: "It's too different from Pathfinder."
>>
>>66353551
Well, no. There's many good things too, like I said, but pretending that something being different to Pathfinder is automatically good is just retarded. There's definitely things I preferred in Pathfinder, not because Pathfinder is necessarily overall better, but simply because I prefer those design elements. Starfinder is overall more restrictive, and if there's one "big" thing that really stands out and where I am at odds with SF, it's:
>An apparent obsession with "balance" rather than toolboxing.

This colors pretty much everything else, even when it seems to make no sense (magic item limitation, for example). It's a very conservative approach I'm not a fan of. It doesn't make the game bad, but it makes *me* appreciate it less.

And there's some things I pointed out that I would've preferred to change, such as the deities and the insufferable goblin shitters, and my criticism of the Solarian is based entirely on it *not* adhering to the new standards when it comes to classes - a standard of class design that is strictly superior to Pathfinder, in my opinion.
>>
>>66353673
>An apparent obsession with "balance" rather than toolboxing.
Classes in Starfinder have a lot more options within the class design (Soldier vs Fighter, for instance), and one of the biggest, constant complaints about Pathfinder is that caster supremacy makes other classes feel less valid.

>one of the biggest, constant complaints about Pathfinder is that caster supremacy makes other classes feel less valid.
Yes, I'm aware, and 9 times out of 10, it's based in theorycrafting performed in a vacuum, and will never be relevant in an actual game. That said, that entire argument is still irrelevant, because even ignoring the axing of full casters, the point was that this approach seems to color *everything*, even when it seems to make no sense, like the tightly wound itemization and gear progression (which leads to hoarding), or the fact that ability modifiers practically does not matter and works counter-intuitively because you're not allowed to go over 18 on creation anyway, or the seemingly arbitrary magic item limitation, or the fear of touch spells/touch ac.

My gripe with obsessing over "balance" instead of focusing on toolboxing have nothing to do with "caster supremacy", really.

You know, when you say things like that not only do you piss all over the memory of notable women who were actually willing to fight and die for their beliefs, but you also create more /pol/shitter MGTOW redpillfags by your blatant statistics spin doctoring. It's like saying 1 in 4 women get raped because you've padded out your numbers with false accusations, unwanted flirting, mutually drunken flings, and someone farting loudly in the same room as a woman. And yes, these are all things someone has described as "rape" before.

here's my educated geostrategic analysis;

Post One:
>"The Scour State's economy stays afloat by selling Scour to the nations of the Osini in the southern continent"
Are the people in charge of this nation a bunch of fucking retards? If the Scour States are large enough to be geopolitical powers, they should have a diversified economy.
Being focused on a single commodity makes them vulnerable to economic fuckwittery. Anybody that wants to browbeat them could just put tariffs or bans on Scour and get whatever concessions they want in very short order. Bullying the Scour States would be very easy, making them weak on the world stage at best.


>"The Inekki REALLY want to know how to process Nigini fruit to get the neurotoxin & drugs"
For what purpose? Learning this secret still leaves the Scour States in full control of the drug's production - they have the fruit trees. Also, this could be accomplished with a few spies or a couple of meagre bribes. It is not at all something that a war would be started over.


>this ends in wars for dominance around the Gulf of Kiniket
No, desire for dominence of the Gulf of Kiniket is what starts the war. The stuff about drugs is just a tangent, likely just one aspect of the greater geo-economic strategies of the opposing forces. Or, to make it a direct suggestion: The drugs are not the end in and of themselves, but a means to the end of dominance.

Post two is mostly a bunch of esoteric faff and I don't have many comments, other than a few simple ones;

>the Osinic as a religion have a lot of weird hangups, one of the big ones being about oral cleanliness
>the leader of the Orthodox Osinic faith puts a ban on Scour, as it is an orally taken drug
typically, strategy comes first. (Not always, mind you.) The Osini would likely be putting this ban on to pressure the Scour States into some form of concession. (At the time, they would know the SS are relatively desperate, so it is a perfect time to be opportunistic.)
I'd suggest that the ban is for strategic reasons, and oral hygiene is just the crap they tell the citizens to convince them it's a good idea. Maneuvering strategy into the ethics of the populace is a subtle art, and this is a fine time to explore it.

>the entire conflict evolves into a global war
Woah there friendo, that escalated quickly.

Post Three is just a list of characters and not an actual detailing of any story, so I have literally no substantial comments. The names are weird and a bit silly I guess.

So, I'm kinda of a newbie in 40k and I started like less than a year ago with Kill Team. In a few days I'll be playing my first game and tournament with a full 1750 pts army; problem is, I've got a very élite-like army and the definition of a glass cannon (I play mono-Harlequins), and I like the idea of confusing my opponent, thus protecting what i can or the most important units from the merciless fire. I wanna “git gud”, but I also like playing tricks (cause that's kinda the point of my army). What should i do? Are there some tricks you use against your opponents?

TL;DR Tell me some good ways to confuse your opponent, how to make your moves unpredictable, anything that can help to kinda move the battle in your favor!

Who is more evil? A lord and queen who cause the deaths of hundreds of thousands by unleashing a war on the kingdom, burn the crops of the most accessible farmlands, and kill tens of thousands when sacking a city that surrendered to them...

Or a queen who flies a dragon, kills slavers, and executes people who betray her and try to poison her?

Seriously, they have Tyrion argue that Tywin and Cersei killed fewer people that Daenerys did

Just in general though, when considering D&D-style alignment systems, is Evil predicated on direct actions of the NPC/PC, or on all the ripples and after-effects of the actions they take if the consequences are foreseeable?

They're drawn to a character who's just as autistic as them.

No but in all seriousness, Stannis is one of the few contenders to the throne who actually undergoes positive growth. He's not my favourite character (I actually found the early Davos chapters a chore to read), and I doubt he's going to win out in the end, but he has a number of humanizing moments and mitigating circumstances, and the show was really blatant about cutting those to make him less competent and relatable.

So my tabletop group wants me to run a Narnia based game—one guy suggested it and it spread like wildfire—so I have been trying to find a premade game system or conversion for it, but I haven't found anything from my usual sources.
If any of you guys would happen to know of a Narnia game or of a conversion, for say D&D or such (GURPS may be on the table, but I would like recommendations for books), then I would appreciate it greatly. If there isn't anything of the sort though advice would be welcomed as well.

>I can't help but feel that it's more solid that way than parfait.
Probably overall, but I wouldn't underestimate Parfait in the fair matchups. If I'm in a room of D&T, Miracles, Delver, and Stoneblade decks it's what I'm going to be playing and I'll clean house doing it because most decks struggle to interact with a pillow fort of enchantments. My win rate against fair decks across the format is a little under 70%, for example, my tracking sheet shows (in matches) 30/37 for D&T, 27/42 for Stoneblade variants, 9/11 for Burn, and 19/33 for Miracles; If I can slow the game down to the Parfait pace I've got a very good chance at stealing the win, which is pretty easily doable again the fair crowd. The problem the deck runs into is fast combo like Storm, Infect, and RB Reanimator, most of the SB is dedicated to trying (and I use that word loosely) to make games 2/3 an actual game. The infect matchup in particular is almost straight up unwinnable, and lucky me, my store has a dedicated pilot lol.

>Luminarch Ascension
I did try it out at one point, It's one of those cards that was either fantastic or terrible. The main problem I had with it was it constantly got hit by abrupt decay before it could go active, but that was back before the DRS ban when AD was everywhere. I probably should give it another go in the place of Thopter Spy Network to see if it does any better this time around, especially now that AssTrophy allows an easy out to TSN as well in the B/G/x decks.

This is kind of a strange point for the game. It's so far in the future that the different timelines have literally come back into one point of time. There are references in the game to all established timelines, which means at some point, there's potential for an adventure where Link somehow merges the timelines back together.

Yeah, after I got Adult Link I felt kind of vulnerable when I turned back to Young Link. It's genius that they decided to have the Shadow Temple as a Young Link dungeon

It baffles me how we never got a Zelda movie, unlike Super Mario it's something hard to mess up. I could see a Hero of Time trilogy with the first two being OoT based with Young and Adult Link and than back to Young Link again in the Majora final movie
