>>69031743 >new life into deckbuilding Literally you could've done this with any format already existing. You didn't even need to have a format to exist to brew. People are reeing because wizards are trying to kill modern so they could sell more packs.
Hello /tg/, I have a project I think would be fun.
We're going to make a monster manual, one of those weird, Monster Manual 3 and onward kinds where they've run out of all the regular monster types and just start making up crazy shit to throw in. Give us your Sennmurvs, your Urgalastas, your Blackstone Eidolons, whatever concepts you can think of. We'll have 100 open slots, which we'll compile into the full manual in the end.
Then we put together some basic stats for them (Think something like how Veins of the Earth did it: Basic hit die and damage die, some loot, etc.). Get it all written down and put together, a little blurb explaining how the thing is supposed to act to the DM and whatnot, and then we illustrate them, using any technique at our disposal. You good at drawing shitty things in ms paint? Go for it. Want to photoshop a bunch of animals together and call it a new kind of owlbear? Do it. Have actual drawing skills? You're probably in the minority. I'll be drawing some myself, and trying to doodle up any ones that don't get picked up by others.
So, tl;dr >100 monster entries, make up any kind of monster you want, so long as it's weird. >After the pitch, we figure out simple, relatively system agnostic stats for it. >Then, any anon who can and wants to, regardless of artistic skill or medium, makes an art entry for it.
>>68972978 >Piz'imuri >Lives underground in large caves and caverns >Looks like a giant jellyfish with a dozen legs insead of tendrils, evenly spaced around it's body. >it's legs are covered in small plates of sound-reflective bone, allowing the creature to 'hear' it's surroundings by feeling the vibrations on it's legs. >It stands about 20 feet tall, but some variants can grow as high as 80 feet. >When hunting, they walk around aimlessly in their 'hunting grounds' (cave they inhabit), poking their legs into every nook and cranny to locate a source of meat >When a food source is found, the Piz'imuri impales it on one of it's legs, the hairs on which act as tiny hollow needles. >It then sucks up all of the creatures liquids to digest, and moves on.
>Knightmares >Purpleish-red oozes with a black, pudding-like skin over their sticky bodies, these wretched slimes feed on the pleasant, good dreams of individuals, leaving them only with horrifying nightmares >When threatened, the ooze will form into a humanoid shape and the black skin will harden into armor-like plates, allowing it to hold its form. It often will base its form and the weapon it uses off of the dreams harvested from its last victim >Attacks from this creature deal additional psychic damage, and prolonged contact with the black outer shell or skin will cause an individual to fall asleep, allowing the Knightmare to harvest their dreams (contact is accumulative, every strike delivered making a target progressively more tired before they fall asleep completely and become drainable) >If killed, their hardened skin can be used to make a flexible, durable armor, and the concentrated essence of their ooze is said to be able to grant peaceful, lovely sleep, and enhance psychic abilities
>>69024417 >>69024505 You know what? OG quantorg poster here, and I say fuck it, dimensional anchor wont stop the quantorg (because lets face it, would a DM who pulls the quantum ogre dilemma really let one spell stop him?)>>69026929 has the right of it, you already have ways to shut down the quantorgs teleportation and it's not traveling to different dimensions so anchor wouldnt have any effect >THE QUANTORG WILL REIGN SUPREME
>>69029275 I'm annoyed that the Drunken Fist representative was an actual disgusting drunk who vomits and farts as part of his arsenal, even though he's actually a highly respected figure in the general mythos.
>>69029525 Mechanicum matches the older Blanche style more closely. Also 40k really needs generic magi and archmagi comparable to those in 30k. So much conversion potential. Basic rules port would probably be something like >WS 4+ (3+ for archmagos, 2+ for malagra and reductor) >BS 3+ (2+ for archmagos) >Same S/T/A >5/6 wounds without/with abeyant
Controlling fire? Fine. Controlling "the concept of fire"? Dumb.
Having a tough defense? Fine. Having armor that literally cannot be bypassed by anything, except for an attack that extends beyond this frame of time and is able to strike you simultaneously now and before you got the armor? Dumb. Really fucking dumb.
Moving so fast time seems to stop? Okay. Not great, but okay. Literally stopping time by holding onto the second hand of a comically oversized watch, but you can only do so as long as you can recite original dirty lymerics? Not very smart.
It's what turns Luffy from a guy who can stretch his arms into a guy who can blow air into his bones, inflating them like balloons, and somehow obtaining relative mass in the process. It's what makes JoJo so dumb, inconsistent, and I should reiterate dumb.
It's a common trap for game designers, who, after exhausting all the more sensible abilities like "moving fast" or "summoning bats", decide they want to play around with manipulating time, the "essence" of speed, or very frequently, luck.

>>69031649 It is very malleable. Concept are created all the time. Even "toxic masculinity", mentioned there, is a concept. This kinda means someone with toxic masculinity conceptual powers might exist.
>>69031352 Basically the setting is like Deadlands but everything got even more fucked up than in there and humanity speciated into several new strains. One of which was the Mormons. Mormons are now a race and a religion, known for their purple-hued eyes and lack of body hair in addition to old-fashioned family values and the solidarity of their communities. Mormons can innately sense the presence and approximate locations of any other Mormons within a local 100 meter radius and so can almost seem to function as individual parts of a much larger creature. Their primary ambition is to start a space program and find god.
If your deck has fewer than 8 mana rocks/ramp spells, it's craw. If your deck has fewer than 10 removal/counter/disruption spells, it's craw. If your deck revolves around playing multiple things that cost 6 or more mana, it's craw. If your deck has fewer than 10 one/two drops, it's craw.
>>69031646 It's what happens when you paste images into the reply window rather than having them saved to your computer or uploading them from the image location. It just uploads them as an uncompressed PNG, so the filesize gets massively bloated.
>>69023960 Played with many "furry" gamers, only one was a problem. I've seen jokes about "8 tiddy werewolf gf" pop up here, when that happened in a game. In short, the moment the GM mentioned that females had eight boobs, one of the players went really fucking creepy. We asked the fucker to leave and asked the GM why that happened. It was an awkward night.
