Huh, so you can't have a lance with a beemer charging up the front while a Panther peppers them with a PPC?
>>
>>65829226
You can, but it'd be a Medium Lance, not a Light Lance
>>
>>65829101
The Lance and Demilance is still the best to me. Most of the advantages of larger units are just local superiority in deployment. But you can just as easily drop a company on top of a Level II or a Sept.

>>65829226
You can do whatever you want. When Dracs deploy their rare Awesomes, it's usually in a Panther brick. You see that in the Warrior Trilogy, even. Those are Against the Bot things for force classifications.
>>
>>65829251
>>65829263
Ah, so it's just a naming thing, no real mechanical difference
>>
>>65829294
The mechanical difference is the larger things have to be geared more carefully to work together. A Level II can't just have one guy sticking out like a sore thumb getting left behind and you gotta do that for 6.

The Sept is akin to the Company/Binary/Trinary though while the Trey is like the lance. The whole thing being geared around "LOL Prime numbers because they're nerds" is pretty dumb and groups of 3 are not great organization on the table IMO, but it works so far as them supposedly being bad at actual war.

>Imagefags
Gotta side with the Imagefags, I like quality writing especially whenit comes to things like mechanics (describing the magnatude of a choice, outcome of a choice, or even something as simple asnot making a certain choice OP) but, if you think Im just going to read, andread and read and read your giant textwall, you're got another thing comng. You need to keepthe player hooked and interested and pictures are an easy (if caveman) way of doing that.

very shitty intro, but after a bit of thought, casters are fucking gay. They spend all thier time studying heresy instead of fighting honorably with an honest blade. You'd rather cheat and find power without properly earning it. It's like instead of actually learning how to be good at a videogame, you just spend all your time looking up cheats and hacks. Fuck you casters.

A zombie apocalypse in a modern setting would never happen, but what about in a medieval setting? Cities are more cramped, people are more superstitious and ignorant, and generally aren't as clean. Would this allow the virus to spread more easily?

The Black Death at least partially happened because no one had any fucking idea of how to prevent it, treat it or where it even came from. The most widely accepted theory by high society worldwide was that it was an effect of planetary movements, while the peasantry just went with it being divine wrath.

By comparison it's not hard to figure out that the walking rotting corpses keep turning people into walking rotting corpses if they get bit

it's no use arguing about. I literally had this same argument about a month ago, even went back and used google/the wayback machine to find multiple archived news posts and forum threads from 2000-2007 where the prevailing opinion was that the prequels were garbage.

they just moved the goalposts again. the argument isn't about reality, it's about crying for attention. because if they don't like something, they have to make sure the people who do like it are as miserable as they are.

I have tried this method and I don't like it. I have read a bunch of tutorials on how to do it and I just can't make it work correctly.

It looks way better in my opinion.

One of the biggest sticking points I've had towards Cyberpunk and Shadowrun is their use of the "Cybernetics Eat Your Soul" trope, or that installing too many cybernetics turns you insane/kills you. The reasoning is usually that replacing parts of you makes you less 'you' or something. Though I don't know of any people who get pacemakers and become homicidal maniacs because of it.

Cyberpunk 2020 is particularly annoying with this trope due to how it handles humanity loss. For those who don't know, how much "Humanity" you lose is usually determined by random roll, meaning that you can end up losing a significant amount getting glow-in-the-dark hair (and thus going psychotic).

A common variant of this destroys any magical or psionic abilities you have should you get cybernetics, which usually comes off to me as a cheap attempt at balance.

Finally, comes the obvious question: If getting cybernetics can kill you or drive you into a murderous rampage, why get them? Why would anyone get fashion-based cyberware?

So, what's your opinion on this, and do you employ any houserules/variations to this?

I don't like the idea that it makes you monstrous or coldly logical, but I do believe that it would change how you view the world and how you relate to others.
Like imagine being a construction worker. You love your job and thanks to a lottery win, you are loaded with money. So you decide to replace your four limbs with mechanical equivalents and reinforce your spine. You can now lug around steel beams all day long without breaking a sweat. How long till the idea of being out of breath during lunchbreak becomes a distant memory? How long till you stop giving knowing nods when a co-worker complains about his back pain? How long till you start to think of your heightened capabilities as normal and those of the people around you as inferior?
