>>76227306 >the Gungan where still in deep shit, At that point, Nass didn't have a large standing army. The Gungans mostly run on a militia system. IIRC, the Regunguista started after the alliance was sealed, when Nass went on campaign to rally every single militiagung on the planet to form a Gungan Grand Army. Those invading B1s may be numerous, but they're not "everyone on Naboo" numerous.
>>76227468 Hence why I said a few loud minority. The majority of people I met in the hobby have wildly different opinions and believes then me and we get along fine, typically nerding out about lore and shit.
I'm just saying it's most likely the louder of the hobbyists on both sides of the aisles are shitting it up for everyone, causing some to join them, and with trolls adding fuel to the fire, we're now seeing more and more articles, videos, and other people bitching.
Call me a centrist, but I just wanna roll dice and have fun again.
>>76226521 The fandom was doomed the moment we started tolerating right-wing fuckwits and made the community completely intolerable. Now there are millions of people who won't enjoy grimdark because you bastards couldn't wash the Nazi stink off of you.
That or wotc doesn’t want to be put into a position where they have 4 colours with the ability to steal cards except for Green and we know how much they love their baby child, green and don’t want the timmies to feel left ou .
>>76227441 The implication was that we killed the triplets when they showed up on the board. How many times a game do you think that happened? Did you think we played a 6 hour marathon game where we were all playing Eldrazi titans and shuffled our graveyards back in multiple times? You just wanted to be a clever little bitch and act condescending on a mongolian basketweaving bbs and all you did was prove you're a giant god damn autist.
>>76227475 Shit my bad, guess we have to lower life totals in commander for white to finally be good after all. Good thing high power creatures and trample are primarily in white so it's not like green will become stronger or anything.
This is a thread for creative writing of /tg/-related fiction (so epic campaign greentexts and other non-fiction go elsewhere). If you have /tg/ related stories to post, post them here, and hopefully some kind anon will give you feedback. Or at least acknowledge that someone did actually read it, which let's face it is what writefags really want.
What counts as /tg/-related? Anything someone could plausibly use in a campaign (which means basically anything if you have enough imagination).
If you don't have a story ready then I and other anons will be posting pictures throughout the thread for you to test your writing skills on. This is, more or less, a world-building and character-building exercise: two vital skills for playing roleplaying games. If you don't have any pics to post, you could try posting an idea for a setting or a character, and maybe someone will be willing to write a story using it.
Remember that writefags love to have feedback on their work. Writing takes a long time, especially stories that go over several posts, and it can be really depressing when no one even seems to read it (and the writer won't know you read it unless you leave a comment).
And since writing takes a long time remember to keep the thread bumped. Pics are good, feedback is better.

>>76227211 It's hard to measure because their stat system is pretty meaningless, but overall it seems like they get exponentially stronger between levels, to the point it pretty much impossible to physically overcome a 2 level difference.
Seen some fanfics as of late comparing lv4-5 to mid-high Fate Servants (at least in base stats), and that doesn't seem too off base, from what we see in the anime.
>>76227345 Oh, I love those writeups, thanks so much for posting them! >spoiler Fair point.
Anyways one thing to consider, especially in a story like Shield Hero, is not everyone behaves in a way that makes sense or seems justified outside of their own heads. Every character that isn't a caricature has strengths and weaknesses, however miniscule, but sometimes the weaknesses win out. Their arguments might sound weak because they ARE weak or only make sense to them, trying to frame it in a way that justifies their behavior. Something real people tend to do after things like nasty break-ups or tragic events in their lives is revising the memories in their own heads to make them seem like they didn't make major mistakes or have a hand in it, usually playing victim or that they couldn't have possibly succeeded. I can see some of the worst characters in SH or the heroes during their hubris period doing some of this to some degree when comparing themselves to the Abyssal. So don't feel like it's always bad writing on your part when a character acts dumb, especially if they were like that in the canon package - sometimes that's just how they are. It's only when hit with serious trauma or self-preservation instincts that they might snap out of this, as you mentioned. So to them the Abyssal just seems like an antagonist in their own story and cherry picks details that justifies their views of them.
>>76227285 All of them? None of them are inherently bad and we have too few to be picky. I guess Stellar Transformations or Battle Through The Heavens since they don't have too much danger in their ten years and can give you a good boost with their perks and items.
Low fantasy and high fantasy is not about the amount of magic, size of shoulderpads or power levels, it's about themes and stakes. This is why Lord of the Rings is high fantasy, while Warhammer, Witcher and Knights Who Say Fuck is low fantasy.
>>76227397 The focus of the media, LotR is high because it's focused on a grand adventure. GoT is low because it's focused on politics it doesn't matter than dragons exist. Warhammer is both depending on the faction in focus.
Okay, so let me phrase the question a different way.
It's generally agreed in this thread that the limits on how much stuff you can shove into yourself is limited only by your body, and even then you can bolt on more body. However, clearly there is a mental difference between someone that refuses augmentations of all kind, someone that replaces lost parts to regain functionality, and someone that intentionally removes functional body parts to add enhanced functionality, or even abilities that didn't exist previously. How would this best be represented (in fiction or mechanically)?
>>76226421 If going purely by economics, a very underplayed part is the upkeep cost. Cyberware in all games I've played so far magically remains in peak condition once installed, and never takes into account how you'd have to both deal with the biological implications (immunosupressants etc.) and mechanical maintenance. This might be just a relatively minor inconvenience for an arm or leg, but a major issue for full body cyborgs that might not be able to do it themselves as well.
If you wanna go the sanity route: as usual Unknown Armies provides a framework that fits rather nicely, where you could represent the hardening against common violence, since you're so durable and your body doesn't react to stress hormones the way it used to. And then there would be the loss of self, where it becomes hard wether that new arm is really a part of *you* or just another tool you pick up and discard like a dull knife.
>>76226421 > How would this best be represented (in fiction or mechanically)? By having different factions that have a different opinion on augmentation. You got your Purists, that refuse or even hate human enhancements, you got Transhumanists that wish to get as enhanced as possible or even Posthumanist that push towards form of enhancements that make them alien to baseline humans. There might exist sub-factions between the groups. The Purists might have religious people, naturalists or alternatives; the Transhumanists might have pantropic colonizers, moderate techno-progressives and singularity seekers. Each faction will see augmentation differently. Some societies in which one ethos dominates will know no issues with visibly augmented people while other societies will hate them.
>>76219332 Yes, and the limit is when the system we are currently playing can't handle more argumentation and the cyber player suggest switching systems to something explicitly built around post-humans just so he can keep augmenting his character.
