2. Why doesn't the IG have a light vehicle similar to a humvee or ISIS Toyota with machine gun?

I'd let you use a weapon you had no training in using, but you wouldn't get stat damage bonus from strength/dex, and you'd have a -2 to hit.

You can wield it and swing it around, but you don't know how to properly apply the strength and it's unwieldy for you.

>I'd let you use a weapon you had no training in using, but you wouldn't get stat damage bonus from strength/dex, and you'd have a -2 to hit.
It's still gonna be super worth it for a magic-user to use a sword (unless he's got a strength bonus).

Starting THAC0 19 vs. goblin AC 5 = 35% chance to hit × 2.5 dagger damage = .875 damage per round.

Starting THAC0 of 19 vs. goblin AC 5 at a -2 penalty = 25% chance to hit × 4.5 sword damage = 1.125 damage per round, a 29% increase.

Yeah, I just need a solid idea for it. Human contact lenses? The party are about to start an investigation that will lead to them discovering an urban breeding pit masked as an opium parlor. I think a really cool moment would be if many of the people in there turn to the party and their true eyes are revealed. Also for variety it would be cool to have them change int o malisons and the like, though I'm not sure if alter self would allow the growing of legs from having had only a snake tail before.

I wonder what their stance on The Motive Force is, which may be what OP might have been alluding more to.

Though yeah, I'm not a fan of Electro-Priests. Fulgurites would be great if they could reach melee, though I'm not a fan as they don't jive with my liked aesthetic of hooded types like the Tech-Priests and Skitarii Rangers.

Hello. I leave you all a reminder that we're organizing an Adeptus Mechanicus Dating Sim. Here is the Discord to start talking about the VN idea. We've pretty much finished the basic details and we're now focused on the writing part, so if any writefag wants to join, it'd be greatly appreciated.

I don't think a game where you try to romance toasters will be very good, but you never know. The KS folks might be able to help you out.

What would a setting based on Brazil be like? Be it fantasy or sci-fi. What elements would distinguish it from anything else?

My two cents:

>It would have quilombos. Those are villages and even towns of fugitive slaves.

>It would have gauchos. The southern lands would be in the porcess of being settled by those freedom-loving horse riders which might, say, herd megatheriums.

>It would have "gambiarra", a sort of universal skill which works to substitute all others, but has a higher chance of going wrong.

>It would have carnivals, when the whole social order crashes down and noble is bossed around by peasant.

>It would have amazons inside a hot, humid and lethal jungle where armor gives you triple encumbrance.

>It would have bandeirantes, a sort of real life murderhobo which ventured into the wilds to fight, enslave, plunder and find riches.

If they can't pay her winnings they can't pay for her assassins, don't screw your players by being unfair. At best maybe they can call in some favors and send a few gangers after her? Maybe an entire gang if she's obviously hardcore.
It could also be a potential plot hook. "Look I can't pay you everything I owe, but I have some wiz information on a shady warehouse that could net you even more. I tell you where and we're arctic, yeah?"

>>63584818
>Gets paid 25k and told that the rest will be sent to her later
This is where I'd say they can pay up now, or transfer 75k worth of ownership in the business. Maybe throw in a discount on that debt, assuming it needs some work to be worth even near that much, and I think I'm ready to back my words if they try to stiff me or cut and run.

Mostly the things related to Streloks. Streloks are fucky and very powerful, and the FD2 sensor dog in particular. So I wouldn't base a unit around that, better to pull it back to FD1 and probably drop camo too, instead pump things like stats, special weapons, etc. Basically keep the new stuff but build it around some different core abilities.

The profiles aren't well balanced either. SMG with mines and a template would be better than a plain rifle even if they cost the same. Streloks manage this by having the crazy powerful T2 marksman and a cheap specialist/minelayer as competition since they provide capabilities that the SMG simply doesn't have, but only the shotgun has something like that here.

I really want to emphasize that Strelok is not a good place to start. It's such a weird and particular (and not entirely well balanced imo) unit that does all sorts of different things. If you'd like to get your feet by modifying something that exists already, I'd recommend you start with a basic unit type like a warband (Highlanders, Irmandinhos), standard infiltrator (Foxtrots, SAS, Chasseurs), premium link (Briscards, Marauders, Frontoviks), or something like that. I find that to be much easier than a highly specific niche unit since there's so many examples in the game and plenty of skills and weapons you can apply to them to to give them an interesting new spin.
>>
>>63585475
Thanks anon that was very helpful. You were spot on with your assessment of what I was going for (MSV1 hunter with a pet dog and CC skills), I just wanted to use a current Ariadna dog unit as a template and it was either the Strelok or the Antipode Assault pack handler which didnt seem strong enough for what I wanted. I can see now that the Strelok does too much that I dont really want to do, I am going to rework it and base it off the antipode assault pack handler instead.

>>63585075
GW charges for the units game cost, not for the material cost. That's why a single named unit costs the same as an entire troop.
That's way worse.

Legends of the Wulin, although janky as fuck, has a goddamn incredible combat system that really shines in a duel. RAW there's a few issues that get in the way of that, but once you figure out how to straighten those out the combat dynamic in that game is just so interesting, blending a nice amount of mechanical crunch and interesting decision making with a focus on the narrative of combat, putting your characters beliefs, ideals and motivations on the same level of importance as their Kung-fu or esoteric arts.

It's solved in the same sense backgammon is. A computer can play perfectly but that's basically an impossible feat for a person because the game is so dynamic. No one has designed an AI to play bb well though, so it's more that great players can perfectly analyze a position given enough time, but that doesn't really happen in a game, and even great players frequently make mistakes.
