I made a fungus girl for a mutants and masterminds campaign. Basically the setting is a world where super powers spontaneously developed rarely in people for about 2 decades. When two of these individuals are duki g it out cape comics style, the collateral damage includes a hospital where a young girl who is terminally I'll falls to state of incapacitation near some super fungus. The fungus finds and stars consuming her as she dies from exposure. The fungus then mimics the girls physical structure, recreating a super strong skeleton and nervous system using super fungus powers, and filling the rest in with all purpose fungal tissue.the lingering will of the girl remains however, letting the anthropomold possess human level intelligence once the growth of the physical body finishes. The being itself is hermaphroditic, and doesn't really have genitalia. Any waste it needs to excrete comes out across the body as a thin slimy mucus. It can store prodigious amounts of biomatter it has consumed in order to produce massive amounts of spirea or fungal tissue on the fly.
It's name is Mimi, and it has a cute, tight butt

What are your goals with your setting/story? What is the benefit and purpose of overcoming the physical manifestations of these "traumas"? The reasons they manifest are important, at least for you to know. That way you have an awareness of what would trigger them to be. Some people might not ever get them regardless of their internal issues if they don't fulfill other requirements. Or if everyone does then perhaps you need to identify how everyone has a capability to fight them. If they are "in the mind" and physical manifestations are more somatic reactions, then perhaps it's full on Freddy-Fighting and they have to overcome whatever is keeping them from fighting.
Brumation works almost the same as hibernation, anon.
Tortoises stay dormant underground without moving for the whole winter in cold enviroments.
Check google for map palettes, they make sure your colors work together.
Use layers.
Hibernate, go dormant, terminology is largely the same here. While they might not be fully asleep, they are effectively unable to act at all outside of their hibernaculums, so your nitpicking is purely semantic in this case.
Yes, to make them interesting while not completely hamstringing them, I personally would make them have a very short 'dormant' period, say one month over winter, and use heated rocks/geysers/fires/the sun etc to keep themselves warm the rest of winter. If, for example, the terrain they lived in had three months of winter, you could have them stagger their dormancy so that a third would sleep in the first third, another in the second etc. This would prevent them from being entirely undefended and could bring in some extra character. For example, an extra facet of a LM character could be they are a 'thirdling', of lower status, meaning they have to wait till last to hibernate.
Yeah, there are loads of really cool ways you can shape how a nation developed. >>65241046
That sounds pretty cool. Legacy campaigns and big worlds are really fun to play around with
Would they be unable to go out at all during winter?
That would make them useless for a good chunk of the year.

How would you do an Alex Jones/Coast to Coast AM style campaign? I promised my online group I would find something to come back to them with on our discord. I was really thinking something like the first Deus Ex where literally every conspiracy and urban legend is true and are even competing against each other. Aliens fighting the Illuminati behind the scenes while using fema camps and tainted vaccines, mind control MK Ultra etc etc.

What do you guys think?

Given how many times I've seen this exact idea posted on /tg/, you'd think we'd all just nutup and make a community setting doc or something
I did a conspiracy themed campaign, it was fantastic, best I ever did. The Reptilians and the Greys were having a shadow war over earth. The Reptilians wanted to exterminate the human race because the Greys use them as incubators since a pure Grey can't reproduce, but neither side wanted to escalate because then they'd have to ship real forces to Earth, which is the ass end of nowhere and has nothing to offer but the aforementioned wombs. The government was putting drugs in the water of a small New Mexico town to test the effects. They had a cloning program of key US military personnel who they then set on death clocks. Allistair Crowley wasn't magic, but he keeps being brought back by necromancers and occultists who think he is. FEMA are the military arm of the US secret police. The FBI is under the thrall of Majestic 12, the only government agency trying to free humanity from an alien yoke. The Illuminati are devil worshipping ancaps trying to bring about the biblical apocalypse. Megapreachers are telling the truth about the Prosperity Gospel. Every single conspiracy is true, even the contradictory ones. Especially those ones.

As for system, I just used a Fate hack. You want something that supports a good mystery, but is mechanically light. You want the players to be shocked by a reptilian, not think what it's AC and NADs are.
>The US deep state was run by actual vampires that ruled from the shadows through proxy of enslaved humans and also controlled the world banks
Isn't this basically mtg?
Accurate information and statistics don't magically translate into accurate perception and understanding.
Alex Jones is like a native american seeing loggers and builders on the horizon. By the time he tells the story, it's going to have a werewolf and a robot in it. He's not wrong saying that the world is changing, he's just wrong about the werewolf and the robot.

>Also automation will put 30 million truck drivers out of work in the next 20 years in America. That’s just one occupation that will be destroyed due to neoliberal culturally homosexual Silicon Valley technocracy.
Computers are horrible at driving. Every threat the Ai doesn't notice or recognize doesn't exist as far as the AI is concerned. It only works in a closed system like a subway or an automated warehouse.

Easy mode: Setting originates from a non-roleplaying media (E.g. films, books, games, comics, wargaming, etc.)
Normal mode: Setting originates from a published roleplaying game
Hard mode: Setting is a homebrew
Nightmare mode: Setting is a real place in a specific historical period

Twilight: 2000 is a game from 1984 set in the year 2000 following the outbreak of world war 3. In the years leading up to the turn of the century, nuclear bombs have been dropped on almost every major population center, economic center, and areas of natural resources. The world is a barren anarchy with desperate locals turning to cannibalism. You are drafted by the rotted corpse of the US government to fight the sparse amounts of soviet and german troops in Poland. With little command structure, your squad is left to its own devices to raid the polish countryside for ammo and supplies, while paying mind to professional troops, irregular bandits, and unexploded ordnance that can silently kill by emitting radiation.

I don't think it's too difficult to fix.
Overall we simply need to create an overarching political disagreement that the Primarchs disagreed on to which Chaos Gods inserted themselves.

Corax being a former freedom fighter, obviously would side with the idea of Malcador's Administratum and Council of Terra, believing that the Mortals should have say on how they are governed and regulated.

Vulkan was also on this opinion as he had positive upbringing on his world and never was overtly supportive of a pure military rulership.

Jaghatai personally was never a fan of bureaucracy, but also didn't particularly see them as a threat. He and his legion would just for fun, write every single form wrong and with colourful language to just troll the paper pushers as they did their own thing.
This infuriated Guilliman especially.
In the end, as an honor bound nomadic warrior, he sided with the Emperor.

Fulgrim was on the side of an Astartes ruled Galaxy, no surprise as he put great effort to making his legion the perfect boys in battle and culture, so it makes sense they'd be most fit to rule, a legion of nobility in a way.

Angron I think would remain largely the same. Tragic character who only ever wanted the honorable death he was denied and in the end, his death by the nails would be denied as Lorgar "saves" him through warpcraft.

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Konrad Kurze was more extreme on the whole issue on whether mortals should govern mortals and believed only Primarchs and preferably the Emperor should hold administrative authority if at all possible and that Astartes would only be there to enforce that will.
He was a supporter of a dictatorial police state as he viewed deceitfulness of power hungry mortals to be greatest threat.
BL writers wrote the Emperor as a retard on purpose because they're a chaos cult.

Released in November 2017, Genesys is a pen-and-paper generic RPG system and toolkit by Fantasy Flight Games, using a refined version of the system presented by their Star Wars RPGs (Edge of the Empire, Age of Rebellion, Force and Destiny). Its central mechanic is the Narrative Dice System, using pools made of specialized dice to create narrative results.

What, because I'm in control of my sexuality? I'm terribly sorry, but I'm sure you'll find a girlfriend someday. Just don't put your standards too high.
Which character?
Probably not, just because he's rich and influential in the business world, although he has absolutely no game
Yep. Maxed-out Striking Looks and a boatload of social skills makes it easy, although he didn't have much time for it as a mortal
Got a couple of these. nWoD vampire *is* a virgin, as he's a Good Mormon Boy who was Embraced before he was married. oWoD vampire is probably not a virgin (he's an accomplished and incredibly wealthy surgeon), but it never really came up because oWoD vampires don't have sex drives.
Not a virgin, although thanks to Exalted being Exalted his specific stat array does mean he has basically zero sexual stamina
Not a virgin, although she had serious issues around sex
Has several children already.

>Scion of Amaterasu with Epic dot in Appearance and Charism
What do you think ? He is in no serious relation tough, mainly because he realised quickly his supernatural ability where the thing drawing normal people to him (not only for romantic or erotic relation, but for basicly all social relation) meaning he tend to avoid "abusing it". That's also why he was super happy to meet the current group because it was one of his first time meeting Scion and he's happy he got real buddy now.
>Oni war veteran locked into a magic/cursed armor
He had relation when younger, but obviously being locked into a armor mean he is light on relation now, and he is too much of a melancoliafag anyway
>Crancky Bro-Lich
He had kid back in the day, but since he became a Lich he don't really care about sex or what

>Alien cyborg-ninja-mantis sniper and pilot
Probably a virgin. He is crazy anyway, and come from a parodical setting where his obsession for tomato is a legit plot point.

>the absolute klutz
Well, I guess some people need to be tied down and taken in ways that leave them no agency whatsoever. Somehow I feel like this one wouldn't even mind such treatment all that much as long as it comes from the right company.
>Female Adult Red Dragon PC
Not a virgin, friendly if arrogant in public, total dom in bed. Very caring with her current female human partner. Had flings with dragons in the past but has decided she likes mortals better, didn't like them inevitably trying to dom.

>Ship's A.I. PC
No physical form so technically a virgin, but has smart-linked into one of the crewmember's sex toys to help them relieve stress. Extremely vanilla, no prior romantic relationships.

What are magic's rules/limitations in your setting? How many of them are due to the limitations of the magic user or the item in question? How many are hard limits that are impossible to break, comparable to the laws of physics in a world with no magic? And lastly, how many are only because the individuals in-setting don't fully understand how magic works? How do these rules impact magic users and their capabilities, and how do they compensate?

Not trying to sound like a jerk OP but you've made like 4-5 threads about different tiny minutiae around tabletop game magic systems. I'm assuming you're preparing a campaign on your own and are looking for others for validation or at least ideas, but it's kind of getting obvious now.
What ?
Idk, I've found all these threads very useful. I also considered one guy made all these threads, but there's no way to prove that, and it doesn't really matter in the long run. Better than another stat me thread, at least the magic discussion is being discussed into specific talking points today.
Very simple. You only need to know the laws of making the laws of magic to see if they are good or not.

>Thinking about putting something about the "males"/reverse traps here and how they're generally welcome to most lodges, but if we're going to make another section that might be better
I'd put this and other notes on lillend breeding in their own section, myself.
Going to crash for the night. Bumping and hoping this will still be here when I wake.r
Would "male" lillendi have a different role in their society? Biologically they're also females, just look different. They are mentioned to adopt male behaviour, like the way they dress, although I wonder if that's part of lillend culture or done to fit in with other races.
Lillendi having reverse trap "males" is in itself kind of odd. You don't see that in other mono-gendered races like nymphs and dryads. It apparently wasn't even part of their first MM entry (back then they had biological males and females), but was added in Planescape.
Middle of the night bump.
Well last thread it was suggested that they tend to travel a lot between different lodges, unlike the females being welcomed as distant family even by societies they are not a member of, sort of making them the de facto messangers and diplomats of the lillend race, probably with a bit of a wandering storyteller them thrown in as well

Questions that don't deserve their own thread, but a place to ask them anyways

Mecha game; suits are equipment owned by PCs? Or suits are part of a PC stats? Or something else?
4 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Suits have their own stats and your skills. So they're an hybrid of characters and equipment.
What state are the players gonna spend the majority of their time in? Make that the primary sheet. Battle tech doesn't give a shit about pilots, just Mecha piloted.

Also is this stuff like fallout power armor or ten story Atlas world enders? The smaller the suit, the more I'm leaning to equipment
Best way to filter the Ribbon/Cestree threads? They don't use a consistent filenaming, and the posts themselves are always a little different.
