How to roll dice: "dice+2d6" without the quotes in the email field rolls 2d6. "dice+5d42+23" rolls 5d42+23. "noko+dice+2d6" rolls 2d6 without showing the roll in the email field.

In the rules department, you can look at http://www.4chan.org/rules - all global and board specific rules are in full effect. Apart from that, only two rules are important.

/m/ thread - anyone played mekton zeta plus before? Need advice.
2 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
yeah I think a lot of the cheese comes into effect with plus. With space efficiency and custom made weapons for a few extra cp you can cram extremely powerful equipment into a very small mek. For the smallest mek you can make costs 17cp. With space efficiency you can fit in a max reactive shield for 127cp. Thats a lot but it surrounds the mek in a nearly impenetrable force field for a price that's still in the range of "mass produced".
>Need advice.
Don't play Mekton Zeta, it's shit. Unironically find another mecha RPG. Battletech, Lancer, shit, make up a homebrew.
I dig
Can you elaborate on how bad Mekton Zeta is?
Assuming everyone is down for the anime tone you can easily introduce shield penetration tech for the villains. Ideally you explain to the player that you are in an awkward position. Either they allow you to be impossible to kill or they introduce enemies that completely devastate their build
I'm going for a gundam vibe thats based heavily around designing mass produced suits and sending them to be blown up by the enemy piece by piece. From everything I've seen Mekton seems like it starches that real robot vibe more than anything and allows some petty cool customization. Lancer looks cool but I dont know a lot about it.

Yes it is, have you tried not playing D&D ?
If everybody who responded to this garbage thread seriously was permanently banned and rangebanned then this boards quality would improve tremendously.
Yes they are, but we live in a society with uncountable social evils and my will to stand against them is finite. Correcting this one in particular is a low priority for me. I respect your crusade to hold publishers accountable for it and I look forward to seeing more inclusive and enlightened fantasy RPGs, but for the time being I'm going to keep playing the ones that are around.
If that's true you should probably not associate with people that post here. Guilt by association and all that. Wouldn't want to get cancelled by your like-minded peer group. So.... bye.

Underrated post.
I presume this is after we've helped the local lord incarcerate all the region's tieflings?

Our group doesn't have any women, but a few of the pc's have some female companions, so we'd be pretty uncomfortable with this. Also, our patron noble is the most powerful woman in the city, so I feel like we might end up helping her kickstart a rebellion or escape the country or something like that.

ikr? fuck'n simps

Why are Tau Empire so forgotten by GW in the lore that the only mentions are the people who play them are those ''fuck you'' types?
>jam new faction in to court a particular demographic
>demographic show zero interest
>no reason to pay much attention to faction anymore

Tau are a very small player in the 40k scale and its difficult to include them in meaningful conflicts without accidentally crippling them. They do not have the manpower to threaten the big boy Imperium, about the best they can do is fight off a Waaagh or Hive Fleet with heavy losses.
I'll keep telling it in every Tau thread:
For the faction to grow and have a significative impact other than being "those blue guys we don't have the time to bother exterminating", GW need to write or retcon the Tau empire into a huge minor xenos alliance.
1) It would justify someone giving a shit about them if they have allies and assets on keypoints in the galaxy
2) Design and figures wise, it would make them way cooler. I like the Taus, but there is only so much you can do with mechas and bigger mechas
No one gives a shit about Tau, they could have been the equivalent of the Covenant from halo, but the people that want that kind of an army will find themselves drowning in mechs and drones. Moreover lorewise they control so little and do so little that its a shock they haven't been fucking squatted.

I like how these posts go hand in hand

Warhammer 40,000 has the most notorious consoomer paypig audience in tabletop gaming and even they are not touching this garbage. How do you see this ending? being retired and memory holed by GW or dragged along for years but abandoned development wise?

The truth is, we shouldn't be calling these games 'high' lethality, just lethality.

Death is a possibility. It can happen.

Unlike the 2014 baby game where you get 2-5 rounds of flopping on the floor (note: 1-2 hours of time out of game, as the combat drags on) and someone magics you fine when they get around to it. Or you hilariously pop up fine anyway.

After something like this, 'Death at 0' and enemies that aren't made of paper might feel 'high' lethality.
If I keep a canister of VX gas in my fridge, but I haven't opened it yet, is it still highly lethal?
But the “high lethal” game isn’t sitting in a fridge, it’s being run and not killing the players.

If the canister was opend and exposed to people, but killed no one, I wouldn’t call it lethal

Welcome to the Old School Renaissance General, the thread dedicated to TSR-era D&D, derived systems, and compatible content.

Broadly, OSR games encourage a tonal fidelity to Dungeons & Dragons as played in the game's first decade -- less emphasis on linear adventures and overarching meta-plots and a greater emphasis on player agency.

If you are new to the OSR, welcome! Ask us whatever you're curious about. We'll be happy to help you get started on this playstyle.

Fuck off already.

You guys have any ACKS homebrew? I think I will make a playable Shaper based on Geneforge.
Isn’t ACKS written by OSR Hitler; Alexander Macris?
How about you fuck off? Nobody gives a shit about your mediocre vidya nostalgia.
That sounds fun, what tables are you using in order to generate it?
I do not care, it is a pretty good system my DM wants to use and it has trade rules good enough to satisfy my autism.

Because 95 IQ people can only cope.
Same with other media like battletech, where retards will argue that Mechs have to be big, lumbering piles of boxes, not anime trash.
While the books constantly refer to Mechs with "grace","agility" and "fluid motion".
Because their brains are so burnt out on 40K they can only recognize someone as powerful if his name is EAGLEGORITORIUM DEATHKILLIUS OF THE BRUTALIRATICUS SECUNDUS with pauldrons so big they have their own gravitational pull.

The modern 40k fan is a scourge with no taste who can't handle lore more than a paragraph long. It's a skubsucking tragedy.

I will take this moment to point out that Zelda is a more powerful setting than 40k out of spite.

Did a double take when I saw this thread. Our long running campaign fell apart at level 15/16 but, the dm and me get along and ran through an abridged version of the last five levels or so just a few nights ago. This was the god ship/sky ship/spell jammer that was right around the corner for us.
The Weatherlight is a classic design, I've lifted it for campaigns myself. Thank god few of my players are old mtg fans
