>>73653802 >>73653869 The same movie where he based the entire ending on "little teddy bears taking down the evil witch like the cute bunny on the side of the road after I spoke with a child psychologist."
I highly doubt that Carrie was the only doing coke around that time.
a lot of the headcanon empirefag posts in this thread. but even worse, are people trying to correct him or argue with him. I guess they're just new and don't realize who they're dealing with? It doesn't matter to him that the empire is evil, he just provides headcanon that they really aren't then says wishy washy things about how it would be better if they weren't evil. And it's the same thing every time. I believe in /tg/ that some day he just gets ignored.
>>73653910 >Sucks that from the getgo LOTR was more or less Tolkien's hippie leftwing wet dream and sucks even more that that's the kind of people he drew in to write the old and new content, DND and shit >I wish there was more material out there with a genuine Melkor POV that doesn't involve defecting or being evil, just being legitimately good guys, but alas
>>73649576 The bad news is you'll probably encounter a fat stinky sperglord at least once. The good news is the vast majority of players are (relatively) normal and nice people who just want to have fun playing a game with other nice people. You might be better off joining your area's facebook group and arranging a game through that. At least you'll know what you're getting yourself into.
>>73651283 People caring if you show up is an important motivator to not give in and skip it. All the therapy in the world won't matter if you don't make social connections with other humans. >>73650831 >Irony here is that if you went to a therapist to "get your shit fixed" as anon suggests, trying to get you to engage with things you like and enjoy would most likely be one of the therapy's goals. Exactly
>>73650232 >I'm guessing you're playing 5e. Actually I mostly play pathfinder (as it is what my group plays). I DM other games, but that doesn’t count as playing and my munchkin mentality (thankfully) doesn’t bleed over

>What is Epic ?
Epic is the original Warhammer 40k: Apocalypse, using 6mm miniatures so the game is actually playable. Released in the 90s to build upon Adeptus Titanicus success, the game was rebooted into 3 versions before Games Workshop officially stopped any support in 2013. These 3 reboots were all wildly differents from each others, but they all stayed alive despite lack of official support and grew up into their own community supported thing:
-Net Epic, ( aka Epic 2nd edition ): The grogest one; be it by age, crunch and fluff. Here each player pick-up whole company and detachment cards to make up their armies and battle each other by throwing bucketload of dices while arguing rules and counter-rules. Army builder: https://netepic.org/army-books/
-Epic 40k ( aka Epic 3rd edition ): The most noob friendly. GW pulled out a 180° on this one and Epic was streamlined to the core. The large abstraction level allow you to focus primarily on out-manoeuvering your opponent, but make it feels un-WH40k-ish. Army builder: https://ijw.on-rev.com/armyforge_temp/index_e40k.html
-Epic: Armageddon ( aka Epic 4th edition ): Games Workshop's tentative to fix the commercial flop that was Epic 40k. Stricking a good balance between the two previous edition, this last iteration of the game remains the most popular and played reboot. Yearly tournaments all other the civilized world.

>>73652697 >>73652896 >>73652948 >>73652999 I'll be honest you guys, but this kind of comes across as armchair design shit. Because (a) most veteran players understand that clipping is a little gamey, but there are also sufficient options for counterplay, and (b) every "solution" I've ever seen proposed either creates more problems than it solves, or requires a ground-up rebuild of the engagement mechanics.
>>73653087 Countercharge blocking is a different issue, and the closest engaged solution is viable. Although personally I like the omni-directional intermingling proposal that would let the defender drag blockers in to the engagement if he wants. Which would just make the tactic obsolete in most cases.
>>73653625 Yeah exactly. You just expand the intermingling rule so it can be declared by the countercharge as well. In practice that wouldn't happen often (you don't generally WANT to eat a multi-charge) but there defender could use it drag in vulnerable supporting formations or would-be CC blockers.
Simplest would be an addition saying "x% of the unit (25, 50?) must be in assault range for an assault to take place otherwise they just have a Fire Fight".
To fluff it out an "Assault" must be an actual deliberate all out charge into the enemy when the combatants are close enough. A handful of men from a unit wandering into the enemy lines during a close range skirmish isn't an assault.
>>73651422 It wouldn't matter and I'd probably get a talking to. I just don't think kids are something good for the hobby. They fuck everything up and act like retards. I don't think they have the maturity for tabletop gaming. I say that as someone that got in at 10 years old, too. I don't know if I was ready. If my grandfather wasn't into the modelling and stuff I don't think I would have grown to appreciate it.
However, all these kids do is come in, (have their mum) buy Space Marines, fuck everything up, and their mums aren't even attractive most of the time. I hate children.
>>73652437 There's so much soul happening there. What the fuck happened to GW? I remember going to a GW and there was just a different feeling to a lot of stuff. Now I don't even know how to produce it.
>>73651667 There's one kid that I find acceptable and he's over 18 so I guess he's not really a kid. Maybe I'm just being an irritated asshole today. I treat kids like I treat everyone else (outrageously well!). I am getting sick of hearing people say "chonky" though. Goddamn that does aggravate me. "Chonky boys." It never ends.
>>73653544 It's a balancing act. Plans get thrown tf out all the time, yet planning is always essential. You can't account for every possibility or always do the optimal thing, and that's fine. Maybe they just care more about flow rather than a perfect outcome, maybe they're cunts, who knows
I've recently good seriously hooked up on the whole Conan theme, and I wonder - why isn't he more popular in tabletop gaming? Why do I barely ever hear about Conan RPGs being played? Where are Conan-themed wargames? Or TCGs at least? Hyboria is very interesting setting, and more open to YOUR_DUDES and campaigns than LotR, while being almost as influential and well known. So what the fuck? Where's Conan?
>>73653897 Probably a toss-up between ranger and sorcerer. Ranger's problem is that it has objectively the worst base of all clases, which means each subclass has to carry them, and sorcerer has a trashy wizard spell list and metamagic is badly designed, especially level 10 where they only get another metamagic option instead of a new spell level too like in 3 and 7.
>>73653806 I don't even think it's the the crafting, it's just a neat concept with neat parts that are all over the place. For example >Wizards tried really hard to make it a pet class, instead of making an actual pet subclass for it >Half caster but only 1 subclass (2 if you count UA) has martial abilities. The others are half caster half nothing. >Your only choice for being a martial means you HAVE to take a pet >This pet is also a better pet than the literal archetypal pet subclass (beastmaster) got in the UA released at the same bloody time >Casting class with 0 unique spells. >They clearly wanted it to be support/utility but made the artillerist damage based, with 1 really, really strong utility option. Battlesmith is a damage dealing martial but can heal I guess >Might be me but it feels weird that they go "You know your unique infusion ability? Here's a small handful of options for the rest just choose the best pre existing items from this list lmao" The word I'd use to describe my issue is "unfocused".
>>73621385 Eh, trannies have a sexual desire for eachother. So they probably tink about eachother alot. I'm only disgusted when I find them in my porn, and when I hear them talking about sex. Happens more often than straight people.
>>73653094 Damn it! I need to stop derailing this thread! I like the symbolism in catgirls, both the luck and playful nature are neat. But overplay it and it becomes bad. Trying to avoid the "Yeah, i get it, it's a cat" thing is important. It needs to be a character with its own personality.
