ITT: We create a setting based on a map of a future EarthAnonymous10/17/21(Sun)13:38:29No.81766427[Reply]
Basic pitch: >The year is 250 milion AD >Humans and any possible descendants they might had are long extinct. Or so would they let you believe >Biomechanical servants and stasis fields have kept some of the ancient human structures in pristine condition for milions of years. >Most species have changed to the point that their origins are unrecognisable.
>>81780104 While you are correct in that there would be some rivers leading into it, it wouldn't be near sufficient to counteract the evaporation, just having rivers leading into a depression does not automatically prevent a salinity crisis event
the event on which the saline basins are based, the Messinian salinity crisis, had the Mediterranean dry up almost entirely despite still being fed by a large number of river systems, including the Nile, the Rhone and the Po rivers
Given it's location in extreme arid territory since there would be no moisture reaching it (this pretty much every climate simulation I can find agrees on), it would quickly dry out In fact it's dubious that the rivers which would flow down from the western mountains on the far side would even reach the basin and not just evaporate halfway through the desert in an Okavango style delta
Evaporation due to the combination of equatorial heat and almost no atmospheric moisture would be so monstrously large only brine-lakes would exist at immense depth
That being said a single river leading into it would be the more impressive sight, for example we know the Nile during the salinity crisis carved a canyon more than a mile deep reaching as far south as Aswan
>>81785169 a massive canyon, maybe with hardy vegetation at the bottom as a single line of life running though the most inhospitable desert known, tricking explorers into thinking that maybe there is a sea on the end, only for them to stumble upon a true hellscape nothing but salt, layers dozens of meters thick, oozing in salt-seeps almost like mud volcanoes out of the ground being more than a mile below sea level the pressure and heat have built up to immense levels, temperatures upwards of 80°C being possible, maybe even large due to it being on the equator
and what little water would be there, would be pure brine, devoid of life other than maybe a few hardy micro-organisms and were you to reach the cliffs surrounding this wasteland, climb the hundreds meters tall cliffs you would find yourself at the heart of a desert so dry no vegetation can be found, no water has fallen in even the memory of the most ancient civilizations on the planet and swept by enormous sand storms, the soil loose and unrestricted by roots of any kind
such an expedition would require, depending on the setting, either modern day technology, akin to an Apollo project, or else intense, constant, use of magic
but for a fantasy setting, it would be the perfect place to hide the ruins of the precursors would it not?
>>81766427 >There are remnants of human technology, scattered across the continent >the greatest concentration of artifacts, however is in the salt gorge, a canyon in an utterly inhospitable desert, with a boiling hot salt flat at the bottom >many have tried and failed to fully explore the region, and to scavenge through the vast ruins in the area. >>81785390 I think exploring the region would be less Apollo project, and more antartic exploration.
>>81786052 I'd say somewhere in between Naval technology doesn't help getting there after all, and neither would there be a sled-dog equivalent since nothing can survive long in 80-90°C temperatures and pressures about 1.5 times that of sea level
on the other hand it would be much easier to explore from the air
either way exploration into it would be an epic undertaking and going by the OP there would be possibly remnants to make the journey harder
How scared would people in DC be of me if I had a cosmic predator type ability but for plot armor, where the more plot armor you have the easier it is for me to permanently fuck you up/kill/make whatever changes to you?
/tg/, outside of a very few selections, why aren’t pirate tabletop more abundant? The Golden Age of Piracy is such a fascinating and often looked over time period that it would make an excellent backdrop for campaigns. It has anything a player and GM would want in a game. Would it be far-fetch to say that we should create our own pirate ttrpg?
>>81774584 >there is too much table-rolling involved for my taste. Then change things around or make a homebrew around it. You have a shit mindset if that all that’s stopping you from playing a pirate game.
>>81785733 I hate how this artist actually knows how to draw females but decides to draw them with the frames of men instead.
>>81785871 The gun girl thing is covered in the lore tho, they are repurposed civilian robots and are simply referred to the weapon name they are most compatible with, this isn't like botesluts where the spirit of the bote becomes an anime girl. For example, IDW before joining G&K was called Betty. UMP9 went by the name Reina before becoming 45's sidekick and in GF2 she goes to LennaIm fairly positive this is just the chinese having translation issues in the past and are now being ironed out, never mind if its Harvey, Havier, or Havel lol.

>>81785929 >5 vets with combi-meltas in a dreadclaw costs 265pts. 5 man support squad with 4 meltas and a combi-melta in a dreadclaw costs 275pts. ive never seen a support squad with meltaguns or a vet squad with combi melta, ive been playing 6 30k years >boxnought lel, never seen a boxnaught in 30k either. hows it getting the drop pod?
>>81786039 >basic rules nobody uses dreadclaws for suicide units, nobody even uses suicide units (besides levis) outside of dedicated pod lists. suicide units are PLASMA btw. >>81786032 >retarded secondary seething that his 'buy ceramite' comment was retarded cope
>>81786020 Technically, a medium sized PC CAN pick up a naturally large weapon and use it they'd have disadvantage on attack rolls with it this weapon would deal double the damage dice. A large sized PC can pick that same weapon up and use it just fine without any issue. This is why I assume they've yet to make a naturally large sized PC that and self AOE's getting bigger as well.
My group plays KDM, but life is a bit too busy for me to assemble and build more miniatures to dive into the expansions. I ended up with a copy of Middara after boardgame convention season and I appreciate how the minis are already all assembled.
>>81785987 the box is wall to wall art that sits on the level of "anime as portrayed by boomers on ncis in the backround" just hideous i get that digital art is a must for talentless hacks jewing kickstarter, but at least hire someone with a portfolio that isnt clipart tier
>>81785991 it isnt consistent though dig out your monster cards, your player cards and your equipment cards 2 are realistic (as a hack can get) one is vaseline smeared sunrise tv, and all about half of the book follows that aesthetic, unless its reusing art that got scrapped for cards its objectively bad, flat, off model art that is the only consistency at play >hur hur retard at least i know what im talking about you cumsick golem
>Really want to play D&D >All of my friends are fat cuck faggots that basically can't do anything without their wives up their assholes >Trying to find NEW friends >Go to the local game store >"Ooh... Sorry, all our tables are filled up..." >All their vacancies are for times when I'm at work >Look ahead on their calendar, it's that way for months >Everyone at the game store is "clique-y" and you have to know the right people or go through someone in order to get a group >Flat out just try asking people >All they want to play is 5e I REFUSE TO PLAY ONLINE ANYMORE. THAT SHIT IS GAY AS FUCK, YOU MIGHT AS WELL BE SUCKING COCK AND TAKING IT IN YOUR ASS IF YOU PLAY ONLINE
>>81783292 I'm not sure any card game is popular with the youths anymore. I've seen little kids pick up Pokémon cards, but the store owner claims that almost none of them actually play it, and the few that do might as well be playing the calvinball ccg for how closely they hedge to the rules. Some teenagers get into Magic still once in a while, but I dunno if card games are a hobby of kids anymore.

>>81773015 >Thread Topic Tryla Scott series about what happens after Picard and Riker fuck off and leave everyone else to deal with the aftermath of Conspiracy. That wont be the whole show and eventually the plot would move on to other things. Slightly more serialized but still mostly episodic.
Yet another TNG era show feels played out which is my only main issue but I like the idea
>>81774770 Would civilians be able to legally get their hands on some of the weapons and hardware the Feds commonly use? Seems like a photon torpedo would not be a civilian use thing, along with a lot of advanced replicators.
>two of the gateway/update corp ids are completely worthless now Why would you EVER play reality + when azmari is in the pool? It doesn't matter how hard the runner tries to play around it, azmari will always be better for you than reality plus is/could be. r+ will trigger on 20% of turns if you're lucky. Azmari will be 60%+ basically no matter what (it can trigger on your turn with programs, too)
