Have you ever had serious cold feet over something in your game, as a player? Have you ever had negative buzz going around from the group, perhaps with the GM not wanting something happening period?

Have you ever had to push to scale back the campaign and put top quality roleplaying into the group?

Some Japanese armour incorporated breastplates forged in Europe.
If they weren't geographically distant, they wouldn't develop the same history.
Like what if Japan was conquered by Alexander the great? Or Julius Cesar? Or Emperor Nintoku sacked Rome?

It needs a setting where things are different, but also exactly the same, which is an inherently silly premise.

Since Shin is ending in March that means we have at most 9 episodes left after this week's episode. Wonder how they will wrap all this up.

Port cities of a territory controlled by an undead theocracy. Usually work as merchants or privateers if other port cities want to use some terror tactics. Their home under the sea though is basically a centuries old ship graveyard, old wreckage from an ancient war.

Eberron is getting a big lore book next month, supposedly with a bunch of info on the undersea civilizations.
Tritons interact alot with the coastal cities with trade and you can even pay them to have safe passage in their territories if you wish. I have a few ideas for underwater shit but i haven't expanded on it since the players don't show too much interest in exploring it.
Maybe you could entice them with something like a palace under the sea suddenly rising up to the surface? You would be able to have ocean stuff while not having to put them in a completely aquatic environment.
Oh I definitely could get them to explore the underwater setting in my game. But we are kinda in the middle of an arc right now and there wouldn't be any real reason for them to go there yet so i'll eventually get there.

The double sword on this could probably be made into a female Archon pretty easily too.
It's very unbalanced, which isn't bad for a more narrative based skirmish campaign, though then Necromunda has always done that better and has more fluffy rules, like ammo running out and being able to shoot into a melee though 50/50 chance of shooting your dude by mistake.
Also gangers breaking from witnessing others get taken down near them, broken gangers rushing to nearby cover to cower, fun stuff.
But now it's better cavalry so you can throw away those 6 $45 models you bought and buy new ones!
In fact, we're going to nerf everything you own until you have to buy an entirely new army!
i think every tabletop miniature game could use more cavalry
you can never have too much cavalry
Well, I was planning out a cyber centaur conversion anyway, this made it much simpler

Was Greg's mom "that guy"?
25 replies omitted. Click here to view.
I think that we all know that Greg would 100% be 'that guy' in an actual game. He is too self obsessed he would be the one to make a character that tries to insert himself into everything and also go off on adventures alone so he can be the hero.

Also fuck Manny
Author didn’t want to go through the effort of drawing them at a table.
gold to xp was the only good xp system in d&d ever
I feel like it'd be a lot easier to draw a flat line to represent a table and a few copy+paste chairs behind everyone than drawing them all kneeling on the floor.
My gf is trying to drag me into her game but I’m already in two others, what do?

>tactics or weapons or both are innovated, and older commanders struggle to adapt.

There was also the problem that the overwhelming majority of veterans and recruits were Indian fighters, and hadn't really trained much in "classical" warfare. Indian fighting was brutal, ambush-based, and focused on point-blank brutality, and not on protracted engagements against conventional foes.

As such, the "classical" officers often had difficulty getting their soldiers to fight "normally" using conventional European tactics, because they kept wanting to either dump all their rounds and run away or charge in head-long and kill them with pistols and knives, and both of those strategies got you killed.

This isn't to say that outdated concepts and rapidly, barely understood tech wasn't the primary factor, but the very nature of warfare that the average soldier was accustomed was important and is currently often overlooked when talking about the Civil War.
Why would anyone have had to deal with the Nazis? They only wanted their original German clay from Poland, and most of Poland wanted annexation by Germany. It was only Japan and the Soviets making a bid for global domination.
>They only wanted their original German clay from Poland, and most of Poland wanted annexation by Germany.

They claimed a hell of a lot more than that, even if you ignore Hitler's own claims on Germany's future territory.
The fact is that the US Civil War is what happens when you have a country that didn't really have much of a military or an established officer culture try and suddenly do war on a grand scale. It's basically a bunch of amateurs with a handful of people who actually knew what they were doing.
>I've always heard that WW1 was actually worse
Well you see, it gets a bit fuzzy because, fighitng WW2 was probably a lot less fucking horrifying than Trench Warfare, but on the other hand, you had raids on both sides, bombing cities into the goddamned stone age.

Do you EVER describe a character as ugly or unattractive?
182 replies and 30 images omitted. Click here to view.
Ugly specifically? Not really.
Fat, short, warts on their faces, etc., you bet.
True, lots of monsters have high charisma for no other purpose than to boost saves or intimidation if they have proficiency.
I made a grotesquely hideous gnome-sized creature so that I could max out STR on him once. His CHA was so in the negative that even the blind people could tell something was wrong before he tried to talk
cute cat!
Currently playing a half orc locksmith that believes he's a dwarf. He's average looking for a green skin (read: fuck ugly) but better groomed than most.

I could really use some input by Americans for my Fallout scenario idea:

The story of F1, F2 and F:NV essentially tells the story how civilization is rebuilt in the Western United States.

F1 shows us California in a chaotic state. The bottle caps as a currency are backed by the Hubs water merchants but otherwise there is no other bigger organizational structure. The Vault Dweller has to step in to stop the master.

In Fallout 2 we can clearly see how power blocs are starting to form. Vault City, the NCR and other players are starting to extend their reach. The NCR economy is so stable that people trust the NCR dollar enough to accept it as currency. Trade seems to have massively intensified and we even see progress in places like Vault City. Sure, the Enclave could have fucked that over but the Chosen One stopped them.

In New Vegas we basically see the aftermath of the NCR-Brotherhood war. The NCR either managed to beat it's main rivals (BoS) or managed to assimilate them (Vault City for example). The NCR is now a real state and we see that rival nations are starting to emerge in other parts of the former US. All of these newly formed nations are starting to grow beyond dominating single regions but we have to keep in mind that nation building can fail. The fact that the BoS managed to fuck the NCR so much that their economy nearly collapsed and that caps were reintroduced as a secondary currency shows that the war took it's toll.

Looking at a map makes it obvious that we would have heard from Texas by the time from F:NV if an NCR (or Legion) equivalent would have shared a border with the Legion in New Mexico.

So for a Fallout: Texas setting we have to ask ourself why there isn't a mighty Texan Republic that fights the Legion.

My idea would be to design Texas as a: What if the Brotherhood of Steel had won their war against the Texan equivalent of the NCR?

>East Bound Super Mutants
Super Mutant Truckers in rigs pulled by Behemoths controlling I10 and I35.

Cute chiquitas and sweet senoritas
Oil. Mexico is oil rich. There is also fertile farmland, agave, gold, copper, and zinc.

If Mexico's government wasn't both inept and corrupt the country would be rich like a Middle Eastern country.

Then you have the culture, music, and art. Barring that the origins of the cowboy tradition are from Mexico. Country music and style doesn't exist without Mexico.

Lucia Libre, Chili Rellenos, caliente Senoritas and Frio cervesa. All worth importing.
I would like a setting with Mad Max supermutants driving around in orky roadsters/trukks.
>The supermutants of Texas have tamed their rage by driving through the nuclear deserts at dizzying speeds in their salvaged vehicles
Texas has a fuckton of oil too.

Any of you make terrain? I've got myself some big tables to fill, want to start off with some generic rolling hills scenery with trees, fields, fences, hedgerows and some fantasy buildings, probably the standard generic half-timbered job which are very easy to make out of foamcore and basswood.

What should I do about windows for them though? Any cheap 3d prints, or resin or metal casts?

The kinds of psychos this web site attracts lol.
Honestly how do you get banned from a LGS? Most of those stores barely get by as it is, much less when they start fucking around banning what few paying customers they actually have.
New thread
There are some seriously awful human beings who play wargames. They are awful human beings everywhere, including in public, including around children, and they are rarely -- rarely -- paying customers.

In NoVa absolutely no hobby store/gaming store is getting by on selling game stuff to customers. It's simply not possible. They're all renting tables, selling food (full kitchen, not snacks), and hosting official events (which, yes, you can be barred from if you're banned from the store).
>Honestly how do you get banned from a LGS?
Theft. Slinging fists. Constantly sexually or physically harassing other customers. Cheating. Deliberate vandalism. Stinking so bad the owner kicks you out and coming back without a wash a couple-three times. Breaking other customers' shit. Screaming "I'm going to kill you, you little faggot" at an eight-year-old.
You know, being an unrepentant shithead.
