What are some other interesting ways to splice up a standard pantheon? Like, having one god for two seemingly unrelated concepts. What effects do these pantheons have on their societies?

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.

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.

For good reason.
yeah, anything that needs to be hit with magic bullets is probably immune to bullets and you should have just thrown magic instead

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.

I agree with this. We have hopes for Freeguild to recover their horses (besides ranged units) and factions like Bretonnia can be introduced without the need of some kind of bullshit new beast (if that ever happens)

Hey there /tg. Over in >>70391816 I started work on a Bionicle system I've dubbed Masks of Destiny. An anon suggested I move the topic to its own thread, so I'm doing it. Will reply to this post with the current WIP. I just finished the first run of the Great Masks. Things that were brought up I intend to work in:
>Better formatting
>Rules for playing as creatures other than Toa, Matoran, and Turaga as well as unique powersets and rules for them as Optional/Variant rules, might integrate them into the "Core" rules later
>Filtering the masks further, removing ones Toa would consider "amoral" from the Toa list

Updated to add Fe-Matoran.

Wow, that's a fast update, anon.
I forgot about biosector, it's got a great format, guess I'm never gonna go to the wikia again
It really wasn't too hard. Helps that I'm working on something for the playtest on the 1st and ended up over-doing the setting work for it.

Damn, i see you're not holding back with the redpills today.
Make pregenerated characters. I can get my.group to try just about anything at least once if I supply the character. Make or find half again as many as you need.
Also, start out with a simple one shot, and bring cheat sheets. Make it retard proof. 99% of the problem is that modern d&d chargen takes too god damn long, so they assume every system is gonna be that way. Straight from d&d to warhams might be tough depending on the group dynamic, but just make their buy-in limited, and make sure the session is fun! Dont worry about being too rules autistic.
Yep, pregens seems the way to go. I'll try to run the starter set after i'm done with my current D&D game, thanks.

My current main group was initially formed off the back of a Death House one-shot at our university's gaming club, but we only got like 5 sessions into a proper campaign before our DM said "hey Im not enjoying running 5e, would you guys like to play Star Wars?"
And now FFG star wars has been our main game for over a year! We've made short forays into 5e again when someone else in the group wanted to run something, but we always come back to FFG Star Wars and to be honest I don't think we like 5e very much in the first place

We don't even have a main DM anymore since our first Star Wars campaign ended and another player stepped in to run his own prequel-era campaign. I'm gearing up to run a Genesys campaign during the weeks he doesn't have enough material for a session. And then, if nobody has anything to run, another one of us whips out Curse of Strahd and we make some progress there, it's a pretty great setup.

So moral of the story is get a good group I guess.

Yeah, but more worryingly: someone just told me that 3.5e is unbalanced. Can anyone explain? I'm DMing a fighter-rogue-cleric-wizard group and everything seems perfectly balanced to me.
No shit sherlock. Easy to make and easier to learn to use.
>despite their over representation in modern fantasy spears were the more common go to weapon in many cultures
Wouldn't that mean that it isn't over-representation? I mean, if they were the more common go-to weapon, it makes sense that they'd be well-represented.

I need pictures! Pictures of adventurers being failures and screw-ups!

Anon, I have some bad news for you...
>What I hope for
Nice new art and a decent setting books with lots of lore and background for all four Isles and the Pandyssian continent.
>What I expect
Reused art assets from the games and a very shallow discusion of Dunwall, Dunwall, and nothing but Dunwall. Maybe a mention of Serkonos to be expanded upon in a later supplement.
I'm mostly just hoping there will be a few powers worth stealing for my BitD campaign.

anyway, no, the Insulindian phasmid is not truly sentient and thus it would be bestiality, anon. Also why would you want to fuck the kindest creature you have ever met

Not truly sentient Or sapient ?

I always find that travel is just a slow part of the game that players aren’t invested in. Random tables just make more fights and random landmarks that players will investigate suspiciously for too long. I tend to just roll 5 times and if any roll was higher than 18 than I think of an interesting encounter(usually non combat) and place it within the relative time span of the roll. Otherwise I just sum up around 3 notable details about the wilderness they explored and then proceed to describe the quest location. How do you guys handle travel? Is there more interesting ways of handling it without it just seeming like a drain on the story?

Honestly it made things quite nice to visualise, especially for stuff like character introductions. Normally a player just dumps a bunch of info about how his character has brown hair and big boots and a big sword and is a barbarian, this guy had a neat little description of his character leaning on a bar and us hearing the conversation with the bartender as we slowly panned up, getting a clothing description followed by the man himself.

Definitely wouldn't work for every game, but I found it surprisingly immersive.
If you play 5e, the adventures in middle earth core book actually has some pretty good mechanics for travelling that make it far more interesting while keeping it from being long winded. I'd give it a look, as I can see it being adapted for different systems easily

I was actually going to use it for a space campaign, in all honesty, only with flying on a spaceship instead of walking
thank you
you're welcome anon
Mostly just narrate a summary of the journey and how it went. Maybe do a random encounter (Which doesn't have to be combat). Not everything has to be overcomplicated.

Anon you're coming across as schizo
Funny thing is, I fucking hate my dad, and I have problems with authority, man or woman. That being said Beau’s dad is like, a million times better than mine and these little faggots whining about gaslighting and saying she should knock his teeth out because he cared enough about his daughter to save her from herself. Like fuck off you whingeing fucking babies.
>otherwise they would find some comfort in reasonable, authoritative men.
This always happens, anon. This always, always happens. The types of people that get off on "hating daddy" inevitably find themselves masturbating over the idea of getting "whisked away" by some dashing white male hunk to be treated like the queen they so obviously are.

But they can't get those kinds of men, because they're terrible people. So who do they settle for? Second best, which are the limp-wristed socially meek yet sexually disgusting beta orbiter that worships the very ground they stand on. Yet the Orbiter is a poor consolation for the Chad, so they either ignore the Orbiter or insist on "opening" the relationship since, if they can't have a responsible authoritative man, they could at least have irresponsible, dominating men.
Right? Beau's father didn't run out on their family, leave her mother with hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of debt and try to pop back into their life later like nothing happened. He built up their family business, tried to stop her being a criminal who was robbing people and running a smuggling business that was undercutting the family business. Getting a slap across the face and being sent off to monk school is a very restrained response. Beau's father isn't a monster.
You forgot Vex/Vax's dad, too. Who was portrayed as a real slimeball for "moving on" from their archetypal tragic mother figure.
>but did he outright say dads themselves?
Has he portrayed a single father figure as a positive influence on their family? Meanwhile you've got the Ruby over here getting held up as a paragon of motherhood.
