Just wanted to say that I am proud of you guys, nobody responded to that abomination of a thread earlier, not even to say how much it sucks.
Enormously based.
Idk anon, the game's been in final art for 2 years since I backed it. Plus the 3 minute review faggot that is designing it apparently had a lot of personal problems (among them 'oh god I didn't know having a kid lessens the time I have for my hobbies') and I don't think he managed to finish it by april (which he needed to get the game shipped at the end of the year according to him).
I don't understand why you would just lie on /tg/ like this. It's an anonymous board. You don't gain anything by lying. But here you are.

In December 2021, Red Dust Rebellion was Nearing Art Department Readiness.

Since January 2022, Red Dust Rebellion entered In Art Department.

Since February 2022, it has been In Final Art and Next to Get a Print Slot

So yes, Red Dust Rebellion is shipping by the end of this year, unless some horrible fuckup happens that makes them start all the way over, like if all the boards are printed on monkeypox skin samples.

Mark 1 and Mark 2 were closer to the standard Starship Troopers MI.
The closest they get to "mecha" are probably Elemental Armor or, if you really want to drift further a Scopedog.
Oh, additionally if you wanted to work Scopedogs in they would probably also be called something like Mark4 Spacetrooper armor and used in conjunction as "heavy hitters" to defend and assault Mark 3's.

Not just ships though, there's plenty of the smaller industries that make stuff and will have something of an 'alien' approach to how things they think should work and look aesthetically. Depending on the market they may adapt some of them so humans can use them, or maybe not if its a case of some weird critter with tentacles or claws.
I don't disregard the alien look though for some things, like a gun made by a shorter species might have a funny sight radius, the trigger guard is too small and the handle too oddly shaped or even more obviously, a suit of armour that just wont fit you unless you've got 8 limbs.

I'm thinking it would be Ke Laosi or Ke Lau si in terms of a pronunciation.
But my mandarin is also really bad, like a deeply insulting culture starting a war and shit on and entire language bad

... to defend and assault while Mark 3's boarded.
I *think* this is the Mark 3.
Mark one's to me look like the bastard children of COBRA's S.N.A.K.E suit's and AD Police's K-series of combat armor.

How do you visualize addiction to a highly addictive/harmful in game hallucinogenic/depressive drug? How do rich nobility hide their addiction vs the everyman vs the poor who have no options? How would you incorporate withdrawal and trying to get off a drug?

As of now, the drug I am using is a drug with similar repercussions to krokodili and similar effects to DMT. It has the added effect of making users loose teeth over time, with most if not all of the teeth being gone by the end of a addict's lifespan. The breath of someone using it is disgustingly, sickeningly sweet.
Pretty cool, now how did you do it? From start to end would be appreciated.

>Do you have Elves?
>How many varieties of them are there? Tell about each one.
There are currently around 50 tribes of elves, but they're all fairly similar from a cultural perspective. The elves are fiercely independent and don't really have a concept of community and cooperation.

A tribe is just a loose group of elves that happen to share an interest and so live together to achieve that end. If a child reaches maturity and decides they don't like the traditions or customs of the village they're in, they just sort of leave.

The tribes will war, but it's almost never over land or resources, but instead ideals. If a group thinks that clearcutting the forest is the right way to preserve it, and another believes that letting it die naturally is the correct choice, they will likely war over it. These wars tend to last only a few battles, because no tribe ever has many more than a few hundred living in them in total.
>Are they cute?
Yes. Lithe and tall, pallid skin, eternally young features. They don't really reflect age and wisdom, but rather youthful innocence and vigor, so cute is a very good term for them. Much more cute than sexy.

Pic is a map of one of the human nations in my world. What do you all think of it? It's the highest population, and spread out over the largest landmass. It is a feudal monarchy, with a very rigid bureaucracy, with some places having 4-5 layers of lord between the Duke of a fief and the people they rule.

How about another single player roleplaying game thread, Murray?

>Be interesting to see what a 2e would look like.
It's trending toward streamlining things and getting rid of excess modifiers and variables to keep track of. The var2 oracle fixes some problems with the original, it isn't "chaos = more yes" any more and the chaos factor is more limited. But I'd still use it alongside other solo tools and not exclusively, it's best at seeding random ideas.
I really like Motif, it's one of the simplest systems but very open-ended.

I know they have that fantasy rpg one coming out in a couple of months and the rangers one but anything by another company or creator?

Fuck this shit lmao. If you don't try to construct interesting narratives and characters in your game and just care .about minmaxxing why even play a pen and paper game to begin with? Actual videogames will always do that better. Cringe
alternate proposition.

only slightly de-fur bugbears, more fur the hobgoblins, and swap the colors of hobgoblins and bugbears so that it goes

chartreuse to fully yellow small not all that hairy -> orange medium kindy hairy - > red big pretty dang hairy

You can even throw in boggles, norkers, and gremlins into the pattern by that point. super tiny, blue, completely hairless to the point of slimy. smaller than goblin but bigger than boggle, teal, mostly hairless aside from a stripe on their head.

Literally the only odd one out is hobgoblins coloration. Plus i think bugbears would look better with the brick red skin. more intimidating.

So I was very hype about organizing a lewd RPG group. I was reading a couple of books about DMing and one of the books I read about different types of players, their motivations and how to cater to them and something clicked on me: I have no interest on playing a game without anything lewd and if that's the case should I even bother playing? It's clear that I care not for the game but making kinky friends and there are better ways to go about it.

Maybe not, but if you like games you can still get what you want if you make the setting some sort of CoC/Oglaf/hentai jrpg verse where all monsters, dungeon traps, and magic items are lewd and it's impossible to go on a day of adventuring without lewd situations coming up

I want to do a game that has rape-on-loss, but I'm having some trouble. Basically, you (the female PC) are supposed to be able to kill the monsters, but you're not yourself killed or seriously maimed. I don't want to make female characters invincible, and I'm OK with some ryona, but I don't want it to be hardcore guro on the girls' side. Is there a way to thread this needle?

In an effort to popularise my folklore, I'm going to talk at length about cool Slavic mythological monsters that you could use for your worldbuilding. There's a dire dearth of accurate information on Slavic folklore in English, so this should come in handy for those of you who are keen to avoid cringe.

We start with the creature that allows me to post the most enticing OP pic, the Alkonost. It's a creature with the body of a bird of paradise and the torso of a human. They live in Iri, a mythical landmass in the sky where the birds migrate to in the winter, where righteous souls go to after their deaths and where the spring arrives from. For all practical purposes, it's the Slavic heaven. Alkonosts in particular live in or near the palace of their divine patron Hors, the god of the sun.

While male alkonosts never leave Iri, the females serve as the messengers of the gods, fulfilling the same basic role as angels. We know that male alkonosts exist at all because sometimes they breed and lay eggs. They lay them into the sea shallows, which calms the sea for a week - which is the time it takes for the eggs to hatch. Once they do hatch, a mighty storm breaks out.

Although alkonosts are peaceful and mean no harm to humans, they can protect themselves in case some retard decides to capture one. As befitting of a bird, they attack with their songs. The most basic song puts everyone who hears it to sleep. A more advanced song wipes the target's most recent memories clean. They adopt the MiB attitude when it comes to unwanted witnesses. Finally, their most powerful song, used only on complete scoundrels, can erase a person's intelligence and turn him into a vegetable.

How did Japan handle pirates? Were they even a serious issue?
You're welcome. The same guy wrote an altogether longer series of three books. Much longer but for that you get a lot more information.

Can't really think of any great documentary series. Most of the docos I can think of are samurai or Buddhist focussed and a few others are riddled with little errors that make you wonder if they fact checked.

There's the A History of Japan podcast. Early stuff is a bit all over the place in terms of content sometimes, like maybe you don't to hear about 2000 year old pottery and will skip that.

Most people could probably start with season 5 which is the Heian. This is where the Fujiwara and the warrior class started to rise, Buddhism is already well established in Japan and is becoming increasingly native and powerful, and at the very end you get the first shogun. In other words, it's really getting into what westerners probably think of when they think of medieval Japan. The end of the Heian is the setting of the Total War Shogun 2 Rise of the Samurai expansion which might help put in in perspective.

If you don't start there, well, you might as well start there because he's only just got up to the Kamakura which is when the kamikaze blew away the invading Mongols and the word katana was first recorded in Japanese.

Episodes are usually 15 - 30 minutes, the guy has a clear voice. Learnt a few things from listening.

You know that meme video of the history of japan? Actually a good starting point. It's all jokes, but pretty much all the data points are factual.


>Proto-ainu populations settle the island and make pottery
>Proto-Japanese population then populate the islands south and start farming rice founding rice-kingdoms
>At some unknown point they are unified into a single country under the emperor
>The emperor is pretty lax about things in the Heian period, leading to nobles focus mostly writing poems and cucking their husband (gotta get in those national stereotypes early)
>At some point the emperor's authority weakens and he relies more and more on regional samurai governors
>This leads to the samurai just seizing power while keeping the Emperor as a figurehead, leading to the creation of the Kamakura Shogunate
>This is the Shogunate that survived the two mongol invasions (and ghost of tsushima takes place in), however the government asking samurai to die defending it without handing out new conquered territory severely weakens the shogunate
>The Ashikaga shogunate then takes over

That's wrong.
It's THAC0 - The die roll = the AC you hit.
It may be so mathematically similar as to not have a meaningful difference, but it is a difference and you're wrong for doing it wrong.
First class armor is better than Second class armor.

Not to any significant degree.
THAC0 isn't too hard. Its just part of a system that anyone without Alzheimer's knows should remain a thing of the past.
It's not hard but it's still a retarded way to do combat
What is the point of THAC0?
