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.

We have that right now in vanguard where a mermaid girl who can sing well with no other powers or skills to speak of is dunking on all kinds of dragons, knights, giant robots, and other monsters.
I have a feeling things are going to get even crazier from here with the next episode being the final breather

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.

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.

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?

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?

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.

Ugly fellow.
Any kind.
Which story was that?
It's not quite immortality, but I like the "you continually respawn until your will to keep going fizzles out and you turn into a soulless husk" thing that seems to have gotten really popular since the Souls games went mainstream. I feel like that particular thing would be fun to have in a TRPG.

Where is a good place to find some slightly exotic dice without the ridiculous markup
Try Aliexpress. I hit them up a few years back looking for custom color D10's for VtM.

There's alot of color options and materials, but if be prepared to wait 2-4 weeks for shipping unless you want to spring for faster(but that would defeat the purpose of going cheap in the first place).
Just went on Aliexpress and now I realize how much I've been cheated with my last dice purchase. Overpaid to an insane degree.

I want to run a game where ancient and powerful beings live in a regressed civilization on the surface of an iron star at the far end of the universe's lifespan, but I need ideas for what sort of crazy technologies and alien biologies may remain. I'm also down for some more gonzo stuff. My current thoughts.

>Some descendant of humanity still exists because lets face it people are gonna want to play humans, they can just be like weird android things
>Knight-esque figures with railguns and lances in armor are the primary type of warrior in the world
>Hyper-lethal combat based around movement and speed, armor just gives you a bit of an edge but ultimately fights are over very quickly, you either shoot someone or move ridiculously fast and stab them but either way it could easily be over in one shot. Planning your fight is important
>Everything is very energy-efficient and many beings live relatively simple lives, almost feudal, but their equivalents to feudal life are things like shacks of carved metal or alien ferro-organisms which are the equivalent of plants, and slow-firing railguns instead of crossbows
>High technology and insane wonders from the Universal Golden Age exist but their power requirements exceed what can be produced in a reasonable time so they're either (hopefully) impossible to activate doomsday devices or the trump cards of the star's greatest empires
>Life-draining energy beings flit through the wildest areas and are terrifying remorseless predators
>Space travel exists and there are colonies on other iron stars but this one is the most populated because space travel is risky and difficult to do en-masse because of rogue von neumann constructs with nowhere to go that still hunger or even bigger terrifying energy predators

Which episode? There's, like, a billion of them.

I don't know, if I knew, I would be a sci-fi writer.

>molecular weavers
These are giant mono-molecular loops many parsecs long. They synthesize molecules of stuff ex nihilo by capturing quantum fluctuations in their loops and stabilizing.

These function off of Planck time. Every Planck second it clicks. What turns out is that there is an "objective" time scale and this thing both measures it and draws power from it. Miniscule, but it's enough to power a flashlight.

They look like that pope hat. These are storage devices on a closed time loop. Perfect preservation and you're always able to access the item that you stored, and every time you consume it, the thing rewinds itself to its starter state. Problem is, the timeline of the actual object shrinks every time.

But overall, the problem with this kind of setting is that the act of knowing what these are and what they do takes the mystique and sense of wonder about it. A computer or a gun in a medieval setting is cool and interesting. A computer, even a powerful one, in a modern setting is mundane. These things I just described are wondrous in a modern setting, but are common in the Deep Time one. Also, they're kinda bad because I just thought up of them on the spot.

You might be able to get an idea of how it was by looking at Japan, where polytheism is still more or less alive.
One example is the students taking admission exams for college visiting the temple and praying to Sugawara no Michizane, considered a god of learning.

In general, you prayed to as many of the relevant Gods as you felt you had time/the proper means to do so.

A Norseman before he sailed for raiding would probably pray to Thor and Njord for safe seas and protection from the Storm, and just before battle he'd pray to Tyr and Odin.

If he felt his family had a particular connection to a god, he might invoke them if he thought it was relevant, but mostly as a "hey, please tell your husband/cousin/brother to look out for me."

I think you're making it harder than it needs to be. For a simple prayer, it's just like, tossing in a couple names, while for something more elaborate you might make one or two sacrifices, and hope those Gods intervened.
>changed completely (Bacchus/Dionysis).

Assuming that the gods exist in a setting like IRL, how could this history be incorporated into such a setting?
That's the story as I understand it as well. Pluton is just Pluto in French.

The best mundane offensive spells don't require strict line of sight, don't interact with physical obstacles, can be performed with minimal somatic and verbal components, and generally affect something normies can't connect, like replicating a genetic defect or creating a tiny tear somewhere important.

The best meta offensive spells have a lot of hoops to jump through, like needing to be ritual cast or to be cast during a full moon, but they break the best charms and blessings so you can follow up with a mundane offensive spell.
