How do souls work in your setting?

>It’s impossible to destroy a soul.
But can you *make* one? And what happens if the population increases with a static number of souls?
deer musk, except magic
I presume people capture souls then? Use them as endless batteries?
Alright, how does he do it? And what about previous settings?
There's no souls, people cease to exist when they die. However that doesn't mean people know this so they have ideas of what happens after death.

sure, but they explicitly spelled it out as an option.

kind of like saying "with DMs permission, you can take feats instead of level up ASIs or be Vuman"
New thread:

Yes. Because feats are optional, just like flying monkey familiars.
Balls don’t touch so it’s not gay, it’s a fact.
The issue with smite spells is they eat concentration and use a bonus action. So you can't nova, use any concentration spells, or any bonus action stuff if you're multiclassing. And since warlocks kinda suck solo classed it hurts even more.

I confess I hate warlocks though. I tried to play a bladelock before hexblade was released and it was pretty dogshit.

>I want to know how feasible it is to paint figurine commissions. How do you formulate a reasonable pricing scheme
Do you live in a first world country? Then you cannot compete when it comes to painting commissions. There are quite good people in the southeast Asia region who do commissions for 5 and 10 cents a model to the level that it would require a 20 or 30 per model price to match in a real country. The cost of living is so low that they can do that and still make money. Globalism means you can't compete. Have fun.

Hey! Quick brain thought.

A devil/demon pact that was actually a pyramid scheme? How do I make that?
Like the goal is to get more people to sell their souls, but I find the thought of it being run like a pyramid scheme (maybe the souls aren't haven't even been processed, and the hosts still have them?)

How might I expand on this idea? has anyone run a scenario like this before I could learn from?
2 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
This concept has probably been done already, only inspired by professional salesmen rather than the liberal soccermoms that usually fall for pyramid schemes.
I mean it's a classic quest prompt for fiend warlocks "go seduce me more souls or yours is next".

reminds me of DnD Acq Inc and Demon: The Descent
bump for interest
Pyramid pacts have been suggested a few times on /tg/. Basically a warlock signs a contract and gets the job of recruiting more chumps for the pact.
Structurally the easiest way is something to the effect of,
"You put your soul on ante. So long as you provide 2 other people's souls within [arbitrarily long time frame, 1 month, 6 months, 1 year, etc.] your soul is yours. If you default, your soul is mine.
So long as you are under this compact you will receive the powers of my blessing. Individuals who enter this compact under you will also receive these powers on the same conditions."

This creates a functional pyramid that also ostensibly will not bilk the demon or devil for any potential souls in the end game. Your chief warlock has 2 underlings who have 4 minions who have 8 henchmen who have 16 toadies and so on. Some souls might be lost for the demon in the event that high ranking members of the pyramid die while not in default, but on the whole this standard arrangement should efficiently gather large numbers of souls with minimum supervision.
What about the ideas of it all being a fraud? Like, the souls that are funned actually go nowhere (or back to their owners, so they can be sold again for extra profit!)

I'd love a campaign involving a subplot like this, where midway through the whole Pyramid collapses.

They were all owned by Mega Minis at one point. After they went under, some of them went to Armorcast but it doesn't look like they have the entire line and most of the other small companies who picked up molds from Mega Minis have gone under or dormant at this point.

What he said. The other Mega Minis molds went to companies like Midlam and Turnkey (which are great companies), but the Gurthrie Personalities went to Center Stage Minis who disappeared without a trace after a SUCCESSFULLY FUNDED kickstarter.

It is highly likely we will never see the line again because the guy is on the lamm running from all the backers he owes money or minis. REALLY fucking bites, Center Stage had some absolutely fucking kino greens in the works and ready to roll out.
Oh yeah, I remember hearing about that. I mean, they wouldn't be the first to have it happen to them. I'm a little skeptical about the trying to undercut the manufacturers, since they've been in the business for years at that point, they should've known how it goes, but they also had a lot of overturn in employees at the time, so the new guy might have fucked up.

I have an idea for a really dumb oneshot session. You are a MINIMUM WAGE COMMANDO working for [INSERT COMPANY HERE]. You each have $20 in your wallet. You have one mission of obvious moral ambiguity that you need to accomplish at any cost (but not more than 20 friggin dollars apparently).
What kinda system would work for this scenario? I tried Hollowpoint a few times, but it ended up kinda funky with the dice destroying mechanics. Some kinda multiplayer, casual system instead? I dunno, so that's why I'm looking for help from you blokes.

Why do I have the explicit impression that you painted these without primer?
Pretty much every legion except for emperors children, death guard, and thousand sons. Any legionary can fall to khorne then become a berserker.
legions besides EC, DG and TS can't field them but everything else can, and have other god aligned units in the army too.

The second, easily.
In the original version of ALIEN, the crew don't find Brett or Dallas as the xeno took them to it's nest and they were found later by Ripley partially shifting into new xeno eggs.
Body-horror aside, that is so much worse than the xeno acting as an ambush predator for mere smash and grab food.
I think it's also worse as we assume prior to it the xeno is pulling them away to snack on, then the reveal (in the director's cut re-adding the deleted scene) is shocking to witness.
Killing people is scarier. Flat out, the scare is much larger, there's bloodspray, all that shit. The scare spike is higher.

But the kidnapping provides a longer lasting, durable fright that can have a good payoff later. It's a longer lasting fear than a simple scare.
