Is this a balanced party?
5 human fighters, if you aren't running that you're probably an SJW.
>>66663213I haven't seen the show, but from what it looks like to me from left to right>Wizard>Paladin>Rogue>Druid>Barbarian>Rangerthat's a pretty solid party I'd say, especially since it's based on what, 2e AD&D?
>>666633531e actually.Magic-User, Cavalier (upgraded fighter, or could be a paladin if LG), Thief, Acrobat (type of thief), Barbarian (back then it was a fighter subclass), Ranger
>>66663213They come from a time before balanced parties.
>>66663213Is that notImoen?eme want hole.
>>66663213>having a thief acrobat>everwowee I sure enjoy have a 15% chance of climbing walls! That sure is worth being stuck using a staff as a main weapon and wearing no armor!
>>66663213Warduke was cool.
>>66663213Party balance doesn't matter if they don't play well together. If one of them is a chickenshit coward but is expected to serve as a defensive party core and has no weapons to fight with, then you're in trouble. If the players are shit, then they basically don't count, and that leaves the party unbalanced as they stop effectively playing.
>>66663213why didn't the shield guy just grab sword or club or whatever to have as a weapon?Just having an invicible shield would make him beastly in melee
>>66664508Acrobat is THE greatest rpg class of all time.
>>66663433I've heard that Barbarian didn't actually exist back then, and it was invented by the show.
>>66664541because he was a big bitch
>>66663213i have this odd feeling.... i want to pump the wizard full of semen.how do i fare?
>>66665312waitthe wizard? The guy in green to the left?I'm afraid that you have the gays, AND bad taste even for gays.
>>666632133 of the characters don't even have a weapon.That said, balance is for suckers.
>>66664954Unearthed Arcana had it then it was reprinted in Oriential Adventures (along with the best version of the monk) in 1e.Barbarian just has changed a lot over the course of D&D, going from a type of fighter who wears less armor and uses simple weapons but hits harder, to being a kit for every class, to being a berserker fighter, to being an entirely own thing in 3e.
>>66663213No. Cavalier is the only one with an appreciable INT and WIS.
>>66663213the black girl's staff looks bent
>>66665575She could bend my staff if you catch my drift
>>66663213ControllerDefenderLeader 3 Strikerslooks ok to me
>>66664541Mechanically, in D&D an indestructible shield is just like any other shield in 99% of the situations.
>>66663213No. They were so low tier and so poorly made, that the DM gave them ridiculously overpowered artifacts to balance everything
>>66664541The purpose of the shield was to be handled with two hands, in order to generate an impassable dome of force. Eric was supposed to defend the party. He cannot fight for shit.
>>66665506It appeared first as an official class in one of the mid 60's Dragon Magazines. Was one of the first ones I bought actually.
>>66663433Then the obvious lack is the cleric. Not really sure when that was invented relative to when the show was made, but lacking healing or primarily supportive magic makes for a very unbalanced party by modern standards.
>>66669975I guess their advantage is that they're not that often in combat situations and they also have a strength in numbers thing going on.
>>66663213There was an official booklet of them for 3.0. They are not impressive at all.
>>66665506I like it better as a kit for every class. But I often see the Ranger, Druid, Barbarian, as the "wild" versions of the more civilized classes, like rogue, cleric, fighter.
>>66663213A bit light on healing.
What do you think of a new commercial?https://youtu.be/kC9-bfsNne8
>>66670034They're kids. What's impressive is that they aren't level 0 commoners.
>>66670012Their actual strength is being kids in a kid's show and therefore immune to serious injury.
Isekai before it got popular.Black girl gets to bang a prince.
>>66663353>druidShe's actually a monk
>>66664508I see the fine tradition on shitting on the monk started quite soon
>>66663213D&D isn't a video game... you don't need a balanced party because there is no such thing.
>>66663213Do we include their OP Weapons?>left to right>Summon/Conjure Objects/Creatures/or spells, if you can rhyme it.>Indestructible Force-wall shield>Cloak of invisibility, when hood worn.>Goku staff that can repair itself.>Club attacks with "Giant Strength" and can cause earthquakes>Force Arrow Bow, unlimited arrows. Arrows can also shapeshift in an assortment of other force items. (Rope, etc)
>>66670191The class itself should be renamed Berserker, and just be turned into a lightly armoured warrior who goes into a berserk rage.Valid for barbarians, religious zealots, mythological heroes and their aristeia; while also allowing barbarians of other classes.
>>66676787>>66676796>>66676815May I remember you that she's a kid?
>>66677055Obviously those first two are her grown up.When her thief outfit's gotten so small she's had to alter the fit and style.
>>66677055That's fine, Diana's where it's at anyway.
>>66674739When your DM runs out of ideas he's just like, "Fuck it, you guys have a car now."
>>66675582>Their actual strength is being kids in a kid's show and therefore immune to serious injury.or the show being about then and not about the world they are in, so if they die there is no show anymore and so they wont die
>>66679897And in the sequel DM shows up in the real world and shouts, "You little shits, I just wanted you to wash and wax my car, not steal it! Get back in the realm of Dungeons and Dragons, I haven't decided to let you go yet!"
>>66669975Pretty sure Clerics were already a thing back then. But I'm guessing that since D&D was already dealing with the whole satanic panic thing TSR wanted to avoid fanning any flames by depicting the worship of non-christian gods. (Don't forget that a bunch of paranoid church moms tried to petition the network to put a disclaimer before each episode of this cartoon to warn people that D&D was linked to murder and suicide.)
>>66677085Also they never made the final episode where they finally escaped so technically they probably just grew to adulthood and continued adventuring for the rest of their lives in a futile struggle to escape to a world they now only faintly remember.Though if we go by Baldur's Gate 2 lore Hank and Bobby were both eventually eaten by Tiamat (the fates of the rest are unspecified.)
>>66677055Do you know where you are?
>>66686282a board where pedo shit is rightfully illegal?
>>66682833>Though if we go by Baldur's Gate 2 lore Hank and Bobby were both eventually eaten by TiamatWait, where was this? I must have played BG2 half a dozen times, but I either missed this one entirely or I forgot where it was.
>>66664508Her and the blonde guy are the only ones who aren't shit at combat on that show
>>66676907This. The name Barbarian often gives the player the idea that a Barbarian character needs to be dumb and uncivilized, when it's really just a fighting style. Berserker doesn't have that kind of association and wouldn't incline players to limit themselves.The Ranger also needs to be renamed. Players tend to associate the Ranger with ranged combat (for obvious reasons) and overlook the fact that the Ranger can also do melee, and really shines in exploration and scouting and will always be second fiddle to the Fighter in both melee and ranged combat. It should be renamed to something like "Hunter" or "Explorer" or something along those lines.
>>66664541People literally believed D&D was some sort of Satanic ritual back then. Having monsters being slashed by swords, in a children's cartoon, wouldn't sit well with those parents.It was a bit odd how far it went to avoid showing direct violence. For example, Bobby the Barbarian's primary attack was using his club to cause quakes, or knock things over enemies. Instead of just hitting them with his club.Though, in the end I think it was for the best, you can't roll for damage in a cartoon. And there was no way they would be able to animate interesting straight-up combat.
>>66686877Beserkers tend to be seen as always angry shield gnawing nutcases one dirty look from slaughtering the town.if your going to rename the barbarian I'd prefer a name like brawler or something like that.It's not as cool a name as barbarian but its the only name I can think of right now that doesn't make me think of a Conan knockoff.
>>66663309Based and redpilled
>>66686490In the Adventurer's mart in Waukeen's Promenade there are a couple of paintings of Hank and Bobby that can be interacted with.Hank's reads: "This is a painting of one of a group of young adventurers from long ago, this one a ranger... all of whom were attempting to return to their homeland far away. Word has it they died horribly at the hand of the dragon, Tiamat."Bobby's reads: "Another painting of a party of young adventurers from long ago, this one a diminutive barbarian. Rumour has it that this barbarian had a pet unicorn smaller than he... also swallowed by Tiamat, it is presumed."(So yeah, upon further research they all presumably got eaten.)
>>66687295It was pretty standard to go out of your way to avoid actual depictions of violence in kid's shows back then. (Robots were always a god-send because the could actually show them hitting each other without worrying about logical consequences like blood. Still didn't stop the church moms from screeching about the D&D cartoon being too violent.
>>66663213I only just recently binged this show and I was completely enchanted by it. It's such a great show that really stands a cut above other 80's cartoon, doing more than just trying to sell toys by Hasbro, but tell a deeper story where good vs evil isn't as black and white as other kids shows would have them believe.Also Diana the Thiccrobat is best waifu.
>>66687329>Beserkers tend to be seen as always angry shield gnawing nutcases one dirty look from slaughtering the town.Which was the point of the berserker class back when it was a thing. A man always on the brink of letting loose and just slaughtering every enemy before him. The black blooded berserkers were the ones who had trouble telling friend from foe iirc.Meanwhile barbarian was just a thing that anyone except wizards/bards could have that gave you survival skills, some additional proficiencies, magic hatred, and illiteracy.Wizard couldn't be barbarians due to the illiteracy and magic hateBards could be skalds instead.
>>66688520Maybe they went to confront Tiamat, get sent back home and everyone assumed they just got eaten?I want to believe!
>>66691804No anon, they got eaten, nothing nice can ever happen. Only bad things!
>>66686877Yep. Barbarian should have remained a background or at most a kit. It should never have become a class.
>>66691835No, they went back and lived happily ever after.This is a fact, now the only remaining question is who build a ride able to send people into another world and what the fuck is that guy story?
No Cleric hurts, but I guess the Paladin can be the heal bot.
>>66692315Afair the ending is ambiguous, there is still a lot of villains fucking the world but the kids can return if they want.
>>66689971If Beserker was a proper class, it would probably vary by "what do you hate?"So Mage-Slayer Berserkers getting defence against magic while berserk, but also destroy spell books, magic items, or just things that look a bit too wizardy.Zealot Berserkers hate the unfaithful. They find heretics, go berserk and slay them. They have some level of divine favour, but are obviously not friendly with followers of other faiths.
>>66674739Is this series actually still popular anywhere or did someone seriously abuse his position to make a life action version of his favorite cartoon?
>>66698067Brasil. The 80's and 90's kids that watched the cartoon (me included) are now old enough to afford a car (shit is expensive here in HUEland).The last episode had a script. It was named Requiem, and ended with the kids finding the sarcophagus of Venger, ultimately attoning him, restoring him as a human Paladin. The script/episode ends with him opening the Portal to Earth, the DM saying that even more danger and powerful foes still wander the land and need the help of the kids. It ends in that cliffhanger.The season would continue, probably using the villain that appeared in the Dungeon At the Heart of Dawn as the new BBEG.
>>66676745No, "acrobat", I think the association with monks and martial arts was bad in the 80ies
>>66664541Refusal to show cartoon kids straight up cut/stab an orc
>>66686282On the dedicated warhammer 40000 board.
>>66663309How is running a dwarf sjw?
>Networks force you to make "That kid" who always goes against the group.>Writers actually have him show the most character and depth out of everyone and despite his cowardly exterior shown the greatest moments of courage and self sacrifice.Gotta love those spiteful, writers.
>>66663213>>66665575>>66676775>>66676832>>66677252>>66686877>>66689688>Black girl was a sexy Barbarian in a fur bikiniIt was a simpler, more wholesome time.
>>66677252>another artist who doesn't know how breasts workYup, I'm definitely on /tg/.
>>66708504Its a big part of his popularity. The writers wanted him to be right more often but the rule at the time was that this kind of character had to be wrong and the group had to be right
>>66708935To be honest, the rest of the bodies are also kinda weird.
>>66708935>Another contrarian playing the realism card.Yup I’m definitely on /tg/.
>>66709110why was it a literal rule?I'm not well versed in the draconian data mined driven drivel of large media companies.
>>66663213Are they in any book or official setting? Would be fun to have them as NPCs assisting the party to defeat some big boss.
>>66708935Not only that - did you hear her talk in the cartoon?!That's not how Those People talk!
>>66712141Oh sure, I remember reading an interview or something with one of the guys responsible.And then him talking about how they then had to do "The Getalong Gang," a cartoon where every episode someone had to take the "Erik" role for the group to teach kids the lesson that conformity is the only option, never have your own opinions.
>>66714078I just remember Garfield used to take the piss out of this kind of thing a lot.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXGL9NEbqXA
>>66714501Ah, here's the original article. https://www.newsfromme.com/?s=the+complainer+is+always+wrong
>>66663309My first ever campaign was 5 fighters and a cleric hellbent on melee. It was a blast.
>>66698067This shit still has reruns on Brazil to this day.
>>66712148There was a mini-book that came with one of the DVD releases that stats the Young Ones, Venger, Uni, and maybe Dungeonmaster in 3.5.
>>66714078It's honestly one of the weirdest trends in children's television of that era. Especially when you consider that it was being pushed at nearly the same time that the whole anti-drug anti-peer pressure thing was also going out to kids.Like that must have been extremely confusing simultaneously telling kids "If everyone else jumped off a bridge, would you?" while also showing the contrarian in all of the cartoons constantly being ostracized for disagreeing with the group.
>>66708504Eric certainly displays a lot of growth as a character through the show, probably more than the other characters. I think all the characters were well done though. A truly underrated masterpiece.
>>66717542Since he was a dick, he was the only that could show huge growth. The others had their weakness, but nothing major like him.
>>66717542>>66719281Most of them just sort of stayed true to their Scooby Do archetypes. I guess Presto had some moments where he had to nut up but Hank was always just such a Fred
>>66664954Barbarian and Thief-Acrobat were both in Unearthed Arcana if I recall, released well before the show if I recall.
>>66720482Shit, Cavalier too. So yeah, three of them were Unearthed Arcana classes. Probably to avoid Clerics and Paladins thanks to the Satanic Panic around this time.
>>66663353Wizard, cavalier (better fighter) rogue, acrobat (also a rogue class) barbarian, ranger.They are hurting for heals and will get wiped out first big bad.
>>66664690You misspelled bard.
>>66720698If by bard you mean Dancer then yeah.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLYhnBaWOzc
>>66720622>HankxSheilaCould you get any more shit-tier?
>>66664508she's got some rockin tits though
>>66664690Only if you fight on tightropes, and laugh at your opponents falling to their deaths every time because falling damage is no joke. Then you're the best there ever was.Otherwise as soon as an archer or mage shows up you're kind of screwed.
>>66709485>pointing out how much of a shitty job on implant-looking tits is playing the realism cardYour daily life must be a struggle when your handler isn't around.>>66721311It could be worse. It could be Eric/Hank instead.
>>66721647ErikxHank is basic opposites. Erik/Presto is top-tier.
>>66677055Your point? Fuckin underage girls is fine. You do you, brother. Let others live how they wanna.
>>66717542Fuck Billy though. They could have gone back like 4 times but every time he went NOO WE CAN'T LEAVE UNI BEHIND WAAH. The only reason he was even with them is because Hank wanted to get in his sister's pants.
>>66722689Given the designs I always wondered why Bobby was Sheila's brother instead of Hank's.
Daily reminder that they never got home. They lived and died in that far away land, maybe they had adventures, made lives for themselves and came to terms with never seeing their families ad friends again but we will never know.
>>66724326The sad fate of all TTRPG players. Let's drink for them.
>>66663213>shield but no weaponyou can't imagine how angry it makes me
>>66724752His body is a lethal weapon.
>>66724825so is my dick, but I still carry a messer to tournaments
>>66724853You don't know how to wield it and wield a messer scarcely better. Also wash your dick, dude, it's disgusting.
speaking bout the old cartoon, this is the canon ending for mehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kC9-bfsNne8
>>66663213>balanced partyThat's not even a valid concept.
>>66663213>stupid kids lost in magic land and have to save it>each get a magical giftc'mon, tell me its not discount Narnia
>>66724890>huehues can find actors that look like their cartoon counterparts>netflix can't do the same
>>66724950Maybe the hues wants to see their characters while Netflix don't want you to see yours. Almost as if they harbour some sort of disgust for you the people.
>>66725073A-at least Cavil looks decent...
>>66725152>gay is decentjesus christ, why could't I have been born in the 50s?
>>66725152Should have got some no-name eastern european man for the role. I think the casting (at least) for that 90’ tv show was great. He’s not ‘chad thunderwang’ that every female within a mile radius of him begins instantly becoming aroused, He’s just a guy.
>>66686877I always associated the name “ranger” with a modern-day park ranger.
>>66682833>Also they never made the final episode where they finally escaped so technically they probably just grew to adulthood and continued adventuring for the rest of their lives in a futile struggle to escape to a world they now only faintly remember.Nobody at Marvel knew if they were going to get a fourth season (they didn't), so the "final episode" was just another episode where the kids are unable to return. Michael Reaves, who wrote many episodes for the show, scripted what he thought should be a fitting ending (attached) but it was never even storyboarded.
I got nothing, but enjoy this cap - out of all characters, sheila gets shat on the most by the artists.
>>66726024>they are still in fantasy realm>still belong to Marvel>this means they can be included in MCUpossibly part of some Dr Strange movie
>>66712141>data mined driven drivel of large media companies.Keep in mind that these were 23 minute commercials produced by toy companies to sell toys in the 80s, and any educational value was only there to appease the networks and parents.
>>66677055>>66686470Age of consent is 16 here, she is 16. Get fucked, lardo.
>>66724752If he carried a weapon he'd be expected to use it against the orcs, demons, lizardmen, etc. that the party face.He remembers he's not some superhero, just a kid on a fairground ride who's ended up in over his head.Survival is his goal.
>>66725073>>66725152>>66725201>>66725388Welcome to clownworld, enjoy your stay.
>>66722982Probably wanted a redhead and a brown girl, but couldn't make a little red headed kid look right as a barbarian
>>66726024>>66714078>>66708504>>66714791Thanks guys! Interesting read.
>>66726363Why did they have to come after our escapism? It's things like that that makes me feel like they're actually fanatics or hate driven rather than just political. We can't just get to enjoy somethings at home or with our friends anymore. No, everything including playtime has to be a battleground for the "culture war".
>>66726827People just wanted to have fun, the minute escapism becomes complete agitprop is when people start asking questions about how bad it really is.
>>66726827>We can't just get to enjoy somethings at home or with our friends anymore. No, everything including playtime has to be a battleground for the "culture war".When was it ever different?
>>66726866When social media became the norm, it spread like a damned cancer.
>>66726827It's all about power. People are tools. Untapped resource, unoccupied hours are power laying around waiting to be seized.
>>66726866While I see your point I feel that the main difference is that this current "attack" if I may call it that, is coming from both without aswell as from within. Now, I'm not against people creating their own political rpgs or vidyagames for an audience of like minded individuals. I am how ever deeply concerned about how many corporations, publishers and journalists whom have started pushing politics into things. There's also the fact that with the expansion of the internet there's been popping up a lot of influencers and "voices" of the "community".
>>666632135 whiteoids? Not very balanced if you ask me.At least the paladin is gay, thank the Maker!
>>66727010>I am how ever deeply concerned about how many corporations, publishers and journalists whom have started pushing politics into things.But that's how it's always been. People don't recognise the politics of yesteryear as easily so they don't see politics when it was current politics of that time. Ed Greenwood's Magical Realm is a physical incarnation of the 70s hippie free love thing, White Wolf was screaming about pollution for entire decades, Paranoia is set in an authoritarian police state that comments on the corruption and doublethink of such places etc.It's like how people think that old music was better. They're looking at it from now, when a lot has been forgotten, instead of how it was at the time.
>>66727056>Paranoia is set in an authoritarian police stateexcept Paranoia is too comedic to be taken seriously
>>66727056The main problem is that companies are trying to appease a insanely small community thinking they are a huge % of potential buyers. But they aren't a huge population (just very vocal) and won't ever be pleased ("no women in games" turned into "women in games are being killed in games") and never really wanted to buy anything, just brag about it. And trying to profit on the unprofitable, some companies are losing their original fanbase and with it, money. Just look the backlash on Star Wars, or Vampire, or Siege of Dragonspear, or X-Person.Few companies have already learned the false promise of profit and started looking back to a more broad target audience, finally learning that getting woke would them go broke.
I want to FUCK DianaAlso, remember the final episode had the world being saved by a former Luftwaffe pilot deserter using a space ship to defeat both Venger and Nazi Germany, and how Diana was mad thirsty for him?Good times
>>66727091>except Paranoia is too comedic to be taken seriouslyYes and comedy has always been a tool in political conversations. That doesn't stop it being very much a child of the Cold War and its politics. It wasn't until 5th edition when the USSR stopped existing in real life.
>>66727190>VampireVampire has always been incredibly focused on being 'woke'. It was the hippie environmental art student game even when it was first made.
>>66727192I liked how they were able to make an episode about how bad Nazis were without even having to say their name. Now we have an entire generation of people who didn't learn that lesson(And browse this site).
>>66727240Vampire was the edgy game (hidden behind pollution = bad for the furries) before the emo trend turned it in a CRAWLING IN MY SKIN, then the Twilight trend came, and now the black-muslim-anarch-Grangel.But until the latter, there WAS a moderate to big (real) audience that would buy the books.
>>66727360>But until the latter, there WAS a moderate to big (real) audience that would buy the books.It was over a decade ago that WW was in a bad enough place to need to make a merger with another company to stay solvent. Well before any such Gangel.
>>66725073>>66725152>Complaining about black women playing Polish women>Eager to see a white man play a Polish manNever change, /tg/
>>66726783Sauce?>>66727284It's not that they didn't learn that lesson, it's that socialism proved itself to be just as bad, if not worse and historically, fascism has been the only system that's had any success in fighting it. Don't get me wrong, they both blow goats, but when you're staring down the barrel of cultural extinction driven by socialist propaganda, you take what cover you can.
>>66727427>Eager to see a white man play a Polish mandid no one tell him?
>>66727561Communism has the chance to actually liberate people, especially now that we have the technology to do so. Fascism always destroys itself from the inside out. Germany, Italy, and Spain are all perfect examples. Communism's only failure in history was being thwarted by counter-revolutionaries like Stalin who basically operated as a fascist. The problem with communism really boils down to it's reliance on anarchism to achieve it's goals, which until this point has never been done, but Rojava is proving to be a good early example.
>>66727584Tell me what? Henry Cavill is white, anon. Having him play Geralt of Rivera is literal whitewashing.
>>66727625Poles are white.
>>66727621>Communism has the chance to actually liberate peopleWhy do you people never learn?
>>66727621Rome seemed to last a long time and by today's standards they were fascist as fuck.
>>66727662Because it wasn't real communism.
>>66727663>Rome seemed to last a long timeWhich Rome? Rome was about a dozen different things over its lifetime.
>>66727654Jews and slavs aren't white. Bernie Sanders can pretend to be a white person all he wants, and so can a pack of Bulgarians, but that doesn't make it so.
>>66727561>Sauce?Not sure of whom the artist is but it is the cover of the fantasy book Chamiel.
>>66727702>is not white because I said so
>>66727727Jews and slavs are jews and slavs. Are you going to try and tell me Japanese are white next?
>>66727702Slavs are haplogroup R1a, that's a subgroup of R1 with R1b being most western people from western germany to the iberian peninsula.
>>66727763Celts and nords are celts and nords, are you gonna tell me that Norweigans are white next?
>>66727793>slavic people have partially white ancestry, therefore they're white!When did racial purity become liberal claptrap?
>>66708317> racial inclusionFound the LubtrodIn my setting their is only strait white men on an infinite flat plane
>>66727689Rome at the beach.
>>66727662Its somewhat true, for example before russian revolutions peasants were almost slaves, property of landlords. There were ways to got free, but it was risky to do so. So much so, that there weren't much of influential people from lower class. Much of controversial things happens, but as i always remember lines from Posner's autobiography "this woman had a picture of Stalin between pages of Bible, because in past it was impossible to her sons to became a general and scientist", thou Stalins part in it is debatable, but its not like system was only cons.
>>66727702>Whites are only shitty Germanic barbariansWhy is being white supposed to be impressive again? When you narrow it to that level, suddenly being white loses its appeal when your ancestry is just shitty tree niggers and monkeys trying to ape much more impressive empires but shittier.So congrats, you're placing your personal pride on pale niggers who were to actual civilization what modern niggers are to modern societyYou dumbass nigger

>>66727918Communism THE THEORY is an interesting idea that we should always take into consideration when shaping society. Communism THE PRACTICE has several fundamental problems, the largest of which is a hierarchical system that can be hijacked by someone whose primary interest is personal gain, like Stalin, or someone who is just straight-up incompetent, like Mao.Democracy, ironically, is the same in that it's a great concept, but that actually implementing direct democracy and doing something like, I dunno, having all 300 million Americans vote on the location of the next nuclear waste dump site, would be insane.
>>66727976He mentions Posner who is an old Russian Jewish journalist and media persona so he is probably from Russia. But his understanding of history is beyond retarded and what is taught in schools.
>>66727976From History of Russia for 9th grades, fag. Approved by ministry of Education in 90s, maybe just a bit modified soviet one, but more accurate then whatever crap you got on your head. Just read "Dead Souls" for example, it's satire, but contain some stupid aspects of serfdom
>>66728049>Jew>Therefore badDon't deal in absolute, pal, black and white mentality will blind you.God be with you, i end my shitpost here
>>66728129serfs = chattel slaveschattel slaves is when you buy and sell peopleserfdom is when you buy land and people come with the land, nothing stops people running away from the land although that is a really bad ideabut to compare chattel slavery to serfdom is plain stupid
>>66717542Yes, but where they a balanced party? That's the really important question here.
>>66686470its a 2d drawing
>>66728420There are penalties for fleeing the land. The only upside to serfdom vs chattel is that the owbers don't usually get to break up families.
>>66727621>fascism always destroys itself from the inside out. Germany, Italy, and Spain are all perfect examples.>fascist Germany, Italy, and Spain are perfect examples of countries without foreign interventionsThis has to be bait.
>>66727918>before russian revolutions peasants were almost slaves, property of landlords.The serfs were /literally/ freed by the Tsars decades before the Revolutions

Hey this thread is still alive, cool!>it's just /pol/ nonsense.Who owns the rights to this show anyway? Is it Disney?
>>66729485Black people are fine if they make sense in the setting. A black girl from America is something that is logical. An isolated medieval village having blacks, whites and asians all living amongst each other for no reason is not.
>>66729547But who cares? Crossboarders from /pol/ and /his/?
>>66726827Thanks to feminism, the personal is political. Who takes out the trash is a political discussion. Who washes the dishes is a political discussion.Who leaves the toilet seat up is a political discussion. Who you play in DnD is a political discussion. Trying not to have political discussions is a political discussion.
>>66729647>the personal is politicalIt always has been you only notice it now because it's pointed out to you. Something tells me if you were black you'd have noticed how DnD characters are always white considering when they add even some black characters it's such a massive deal to current you.
>>66726729I guess they never met any Irish kids
>>66729492Either Hasbro or Disney, since Hasbro owns WotC who bought TSR when they folded, or Sunbow who animated the show was a subsidiary of Marvel(I think) and Disney owns them now.
>>66729854It hasn't always been true. That's why the new wave of hysteria also relies on things like "microaggressions" to justify how totally normal human behavior is in fact a conspiracy against victim groups.
>>66663213>Wizard>Paladin (but he's a coward and only has a shield - high wis though, always right)>Thief>Acrobat (Monk for the 80's)>Barbarian>RangerEh. Needs a cleric. Honestly the Paladin would be better off as a cleric, considering he doesn't like getting into combat and his high WIS score. Then yes, it would be.
>>66729854>Something tells me if you were black you'd have noticed how DnD characters are always whiteThey weren't and aren't. I mean look at the OP. The problem with "the personal is political" is that it means looking for reasons for things to be a problem.
DID YOU STUPID FUCKS REALLY TURN A D&D CARTOON THREAD INTO SOMETHING ABOUT FASCISM VS SOCIALISM AGAIN!?
>>66730434Hey man, don't look at me! I just wanted to fap to Diana. I never asked for this.
>>66730434The fact that you don't want to talk about fascism in DnD, means that you're a fascist who supports the current fascist status quo.
>>66727561>historically, fascism has been the only system that's had any success in fighting it.Except the two most sucessful countries in fighting communism (Poland in 1920 and Finland in 1939-40) were both functioning democracies at that time.
>>66727918>"this woman had a picture of Stalin between pages of Bible, because in past it was impossible to her sons to became a general and scientist"This is common narrative, however it always compares certain system to something from the past, which is a complete fallacy. Russia was moving in social mobility quite fast before WW1. And considering the horrendal losses during that war, the disbandment of most class restrictions in 1902's would happen anyway.
>>66729098>>66728420Anyway, serfdom was ended in Russia in 1860's as a way of disarming next Polish uprising.
This thread is a sadly reminder that nu/tg/ never even saw Dungeons & Dragons and at best can recognise the characters.
>>66729595>Crossboarders from /pol/ and /his/?/tg/ "cared" decade ago, and cares now, despite people like you screaming alternately "CARE"/"STOP CARING".
>>66728420>nothing stops people running away from the landExcept the law, that is. Being a run-away serf was a capital offense in Poland and Russia.Serfdom, at least the early modern version of it in Eastern Europe was a slavery in anything, but name. You were bound to land, couldn't even pay for yourself (and if, then we are talking about company town type of economic trap), couldn't leave and had a work obligation equal to pretty much half your working time. And Russian version was so bad, people escaped from there and stayed in Poland (which also used terrible serfdom), because by comparison, Polish work obligations were fucking walk in a park. Catherina the Great even used the "let's stop escaping serfs from happening" as her argument for first partiation of Poland.
>>66730910*in everything, but name
>>66729547... because?I mean from the top of my head, the setting is one massive isekai, everyone is either outsider or descendant of outsiders. Wow, so hard to invent excuse, but I guess if you weren't so invested in pointless shit, you couldn't find something to be angry at
>>66730910Well yes and no, in Commonwealth at least. First thing first de iure and de facto was two different things. Yes serfs were in shitty legal position but then legal enforcement was nonexistent. If your serf decided to fuck this and go away what will you do? State will do nothing as it is shit and have more important tasks.Your only option was to go and catch him yourself,good luck with that. If he came to a city and lived for year then he by law become citizen and by trying to kidnap him you fuck with the city itself. If he decided to find better lord, then good luck fighting him and his friends and their servants. And let us not forget that 8 days a week of free work (example of extreme serfdom) for lord was per household not person. That gives 2 days a week per working person if we go by 4 people. It is less than modern tax rate of around 40%, even with 10% church tax.
>>66730937Even if we assume isekai, unless the entire village is of a specific phenotype, they'd rapidly lose said phenotype due to outbreeding. Furthermore, that's not what is being discussed and you know it. Isolated individuals of different races who are also native inhabitants of the culture need a context, otherwise they're just tokenism. That context doesn't even necessarily need to be in-universe, theater production, for example, tend to be fairly appearance-blind in regards to casting unless something specific is called for by the play. It's not some liberal, SJW conspiracy, it's because theater actors are a small labor pool so quality of performance is paramount.
>>66730434It was inevitableNormal discussion about the show brought up NazisAny mention of Nazis will always spawn a "communism is worse" replyAnd that will derail the thread
>>66730910>which also used terrible serfdomActually the importance of serfdom in Poland is overblown by communist period historiography.Sure, people were tied to land, and could not become nobility.But at the same time, there was a fixed numer of people who could leave a village (it was usually one person per year) plus you could apply to a local noble to be allowed to leave.And it should be emphasized it was not such a big problem as it would seem from today's perspective - very rarely people actually wanted to move or travel farther than the immediate surrounding of their place of birth, and it was usually only for a very short period (local town, fair, etc.).What's more, even if Peasants had way less rights than nobles, they could actually go to a court against them (and we know from preserved court files they sometimes won).So the whole "exploitation of a peasants by nobles" is a bit of meme.Case in point: when communists obtained power after WW2, they tried to find "progressive elements" that would fit with marksist theory of clash of classes i.e. peasant revolts. And yet, the best they could come with was Kostak Napierski uprising, which was a local revolt in Polish mountains, which had town-vs-town rivalry undertone (which goes to this day, btw), and was put down by few troops of a local bishop.tl;drPeasant situation in Polish Lithuanian Commonwealth was far from the grim "almost slavery" most books claim it was.
>>66731228>(which also used terrible serfdom),>because by comparison, Polish work obligations were fucking walk in a parkYou wrote all that but couldn't finish reading a sentence
>>66731565>You wrote all that but couldn't finish reading a sentenceI did.My post is an addendum, since even in Poland most of people think of XVII-XVIII c. as that worst time to be a peasant, and there are even people calling for reparations to be paid by the Church and descendants of the nobles.
>>66731565Do you not understand what a nested comparison is?
>>66730910>Except the law, that isoh no, not the lawnobody ever disobeys the law!anyway I did point out it's a bad idea to run away while being a serf, but it is not something impossible as the rest of your post implies LOL

>>66735399>Do you have a scan of the adventure "Beneath the Blade of Sword Mountain"?Unfortunately, no. I collected all those images online. The boxed set of the cartoon I have is the shitty Mill Creek version which - although it contains all 27 episodes - does not come with the interactive DVD-ROM nor the booklet.

>>66736312Awesome anon! Many thanks!
>>66725152Should've been Viggo Mortensen
So I guess the question is... When is the Legend Lore RPG coming out?
>>66716963I've got the set it came with, the collectors edition, which also included a playable module. It statted all the kids, Uni, Venger and Shadow Demon. I dropped some of the pages on /co/ in a thread not that long ago, but I've can drop the full .pdf here if anyone wants it.
>>66736312Seriously thank you.
>>66736312>>66737437Never mind, I see it was already posted. That's what I get for not reading the entire thread.
>>66730937Why not just assume that the city is a bustling metropolis and a hub of commerce and trade, an axis point where people from all over the world go to buy and sell goods and make their fortune? I can easily justify diversity in a fantasy setting. Yes, you'd expect homogeneity once you got out to the sticks, but when most parties are comprised of racially diverse characters of an array of skillsets, it makes little sense to pick that as your starting point for an adventure.
