They still make this webcomic?
This is an actually good thog. There's some jokes, but mostly it just summarizes the page in far fewer words. And with few examples of assembling words out of scattered letters.
There's been a thread about the new page every time there's been a new page for as long as /tg/ has been a thing, newfag. There's been nine this year so far. I'll grant that the comic has a slow update schedule, but it's not so low that you should have missed it.

>d6 damage with strands
>devastating wounds with strands
the eldar army rules and buffs and psychic powers and weapon profiles are so insanely synergistic, this wouldn't be an issue if it didn't seem like they were the only ones to get so much care and attention put into their armies feeling awesome to play with half a dozen mechanics comboing together to shit out eighteen mortal wounds while barely touching your dice besides shooting shit with BS2+ with full rerolls shit (oh and if you roll a 1 you can use a 2 strand on the reroll anyways to guarantee it)
Meanwhile on the polar opposite of the spectrum you have death guard which unironically have three separate mechanics giving rerolls to wounds and nothing else.....which is so much wasted power budget, when compared to an eldar unit with the same leader+aura+army rule+weapon ability budget giving you "reroll to hit, reroll to wound, get automatic 6 to damage and you can spend a die to deal mortals"

the only explanation is that entirely separate design teams with zero communication worked on these armies, it's like one person showed up with a finely tuned fighting game character and the other had a shitty roguelike run with a dozen redundant or useless abilities
>the only explanation is that entirely separate design teams with zero communication worked on these armies
Each "team" is one person and this is exactly what happened. Probably with no playtesting.

GURPS is a modular, adaptable system, capable of running a wide range of characters, settings, and play styles, with a level of detail varying from lightweight to completely autistic.
Optional rules allow you to emulate different genres with a single system, or even switch genres within a single game.

A nearly complete archive of GURPS books can be found by those who pay attention to file extensions.
Never post direct links to the archive anywhere.

If you're wondering where to start:
The Basic Set covers everything, including a lot of optional rules you probably won't use.
A genre guide can be found in the archive, under Unofficial/GURPSgen. It tells you what extra books and articles you may find useful for many common genres.
How To Be a GURPS GM is a good read even for players.
GCS (https://gurpscharactersheet.com) is an excellent character-builder software, with page references to all the books and the option to export to both Foundry and Fantasy Grounds.

TQ: What upcoming GURPS release are you most looking forward to?

That bald cuck did an amazing job with the "GURPS AIDS" thing
Pretty good system
I am trying to build Learned prayer (should be minor), that would cause this: Attacks with daggers and similar small blades cause more damadge, and when attack hits and penetrates DR, it can be changed to hit vitals for 1 FP. I am pouring through Powers and Divine Favor, and I am getting absolutely nothing.
Is there any material that would have some blessings/miracles that aren't Jesus in GURPS?

Which NuSR game or system is actually good? Which ones are better avoided, need to be fixed or have a game built on them almost from scratch? Which ones are just some cash-grabs or stolen free content with some tweaks behind paywall?
Tried Cairn, I liked it, but I constantly had to patch it up with other games I known to the point it was WhiteBox with 3 attributes and one class. It's still cool if you are experienced in OSR games and want to run one-shots though but PCs shooting bows while sitting on tree branches was my nightmare
I don't need a nice graphic design, it can be the text itself, but if there are already some pictures let them be nice. Bonus points if there are some consequences of critical failure in magic spelling and/or HP draining spells, no spell slots, and if it's rules light enough to drink alcohol during the session.
For now, I'm interested in: Into the Odd, Mausritter, Electric Bastionland, Crowns (I heard this games have more meat than Cairn), Troika!, Warlock! (just because I like professions/occupations and "!" in the title), Whitehack, Black Hack, Black Sword Hack, GLOG, Ultraviolet Grasslands, Dragonbane.
I will be running an adventure/module in two weeks, which could be the perfect start for the campaign. Still not sure whether to make it sword & sorcery or tolkienesque moral fantasy or in mud&blood convention. Shill me something or I'll run it on DarkBad, and disappointed players will get back to board games and 5E

yeah, just to help the reader understand what each stat is about
>Shill me something or I'll run it on DarkBad, and disappointed players will get back to board games and 5E
>It's not for my players, they didn't like pure OSR games core mechanics, especially B\X
And you think they're going to like stripped down rules light B/X which is most OSR?
They're 5e players with WotC brainrot. They need their +5 modifiers, feats and cantrips or they won't have any "fun"
Try Easy D6 I guess.
Good luck.
>No but there are drafts around, and the only changes probably are going to be more tables
The draft stuff I've seen in Youtube shill videos was pretty embarrassing, since Ben is pushing himself to make every table a full 100-entry percentile table, but struggles to come up with results. And since everything is equal probability, you only have a 3% chance for a roll to generate a village, town or city
Even the shill who manage to put out something usable with it had to do all the work himself to make sense out of the results.
So the tables are basically all useless and they're the main addition over Knave 1e. The main attraction of Knave 1e got dropped, that is being seven pages of which two were useful.
Run The Iron Coral with the Into the Odd book, its the only thing you need. The reprint has more junk in it compared to the original but it might be junk you like. Either way you can do the entire thing with 1 book. That's the idea.
That's the only good one. All the other nusr ultralights are shit.
If you're stuck with coddling the 5etards and don't want to scare them use Worlds Without Number, its a decent compromise and still has character option bullshit they can noodle with that isn't too obnoxious.
I’ve been running the Lost City (B4) utilizing Shadowdark rules.
It does have some hiccups as system and Im pretty sure I will run OSE, Knave, 5TD or something in the future when we finish this campaign.
Overall, I like the system. It’s quick and easy. The character progression being completely random is pretty disappointing. It’s a big ol B- of a system.
The book is incredibly well organized and digestible, making the system great for onboarding players quickly. The criticisms levied against it are pretty fixable(besides the level progression). Stuff like distances being abstracted is bizarre to me so we tossed it.

>What is Genesys?
Released in November 2017, Genesys is a pen-and-paper generic/universal RPG system and toolkit by Fantasy Flight Games and EDGE Studio, using a refined version of the system presented by their Star Wars RPGs (Edge of the Empire, Age of Rebellion, Force and Destiny). Its central mechanic is the Narrative Dice System, using pools made of specialized dice to create narrative results. The intention is for the system to be a highly flexible narrative system, adaptable to most any conceivable setting and premise.

>Twilight Imperium: Embers of the Imperium, the space opera sourcebook, is now available

>Where can I find the books?

Star Wars archtypes are made to about 120-130 XP total but that was just one designer.
Keyforge is made to 110 XP for all custom species.
As good as I remember 110 XP is a baseline for most Genesys setting.
Only exception in official materials is Android sourcebook.
Android archetypes have a baseline of 120 XP (I don't know why?)

I will go with 110 XP unless you are using more complex archetypes with low number of free starting XP.

These aren't as good as wojak compasses because the icebergs give obscure information on the subject and assume you have surface level context which we don't. It's just out of context trivia and inside jokes that nobody else understands.

Made this for the setting of my current campaign. Structured it in a way that everything on it is true, but the further down you go less and less people will believe you. Not quite to an exponential rate, but close to it.

How funny that you could work in a field as a professional and not be aware of one of the most wildly successful pieces in your field. An art historian who couldn't identify a Da Vinci would be laughed out of every museum. Even Hollywood manages to enshrine their early history and pioneers.

You misunderstood my post completely
Those people are aware of what MtG is, but do not play it, which was your original claim
>"Magic is mainstream and normalfags play it"
All of them most certainly could identify the game, its visuals and its mechanics, they just aren't MtG players.
In regards to "muh anecdotal evidence", it has indeed as much value as what lead you to your original claim, none.

My point were
1-that out of a large group of people firmly invested in modern games, very little actually played MtG
2-That despite Magic's unprecedented popularity, many people invested in modern games did not play it, thus ruling out "normalfags playing it"
3-And finally, that at most, people playing MtG today still weren't normies and at best Marvel-type consoomers
Why do morons love posting midwit 4chan posts so much?
>mainstream games like chess
if chess was made today, it would be laughed out of every board game company.
too many pieces.
too many rules.
supposed 2nd-player bias.
accused of having "runaway player" syndrome.
takes too long to play.

the big red flag for this game is the number of times someone has tried to either "improve" or "cure" chess of it's problems with their own games (ex. "bishops can now only capture knights!" "the queen can now only move anywhere within a two-square radius!").
Stop playing that trash and start GMing RPGs you fucking parasite. I hate that I have to share this board with you freaks and I hope we'll get /rpg/ one day.

How can a DM hint at characters being related wihtout telling his players that the two are close family?
Throw subtlety out of the window op, players are fucking retarded and unless you put a gigantic sign spelling that those two characters in question are related they won't bother to notice. Also remove that vomit inducing picture.
If you want them to know, just tell them. If you don't want them to know, then don't. If you don't care if they know, do whatever the fuck you like, but don't expect them to care either.

Victory conditions can feel pretty disconnected from their theme. What games do you enjoy where the score flavour is a home run, or with a unique mechanical gauge of victory?

What gives you a rush at the table?

Say something nice about that game you are sick of playing.

Dunno if he plays board games anymore.
The first player marker only moves if someone takes that spot. Otherwise it stays with whoever had it in the previous round.

Writing General: 'rise of the machines' edition.

Welcome to /wg/, the thread for all /tg/ related writing. Whether you're plotting your campaign, trying to come up with a character backstory, or just trying to write some setting fluff, this is the place to post it. You don't even have a campaign, just an idea you want to develop? You're welcome here. While the rest of /tg/ is arguing over mostergirl mating and which way rivers are supposed to flow, we're here to help you turn your thoughts into an actual finished product.

As the successor to the Storythreads, we're also open to /tg/ related fanfiction (D&D, Warhammer, Battletech, whatever). In fact, if you've written any vaguely /tg/-related short stories, you can try them out here. We also have flash-fiction challenges from time to time.

There's a discord for writers here

The previous thread can still be found in the archive here

And finally an archive of /tg/ fiction can be found here:
