Let's have a thread where we help each other finding names for characters, creatures, places, etc. we thought up.
So describe the thing you need a name for, and help out other Anons by suggesting names.

Let's talk about castles and forts, what are some good things to remember when choosing a good name for them? What logic did you use when naming your own fortresses and why?

From hallowed ages past the tradition has come down to us that on every other Friday a new thread shall be started, and it shall be named: 'Storythread'. And it shall be filled with many pictures, and sometimes also writing. So spake the ancients, so shall it be.

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.

There is a discord for writers:

I personally find the best way to take in sentence rewriting is to look at it structurally and how you can apply it to the rest of your writing.

The big problem I identify is that it's a bit of a flow break, going from the description of the protagonist checking his bayonet with men crying out to exposition. I see it a bit in the rest of your writing, too, like here:
>Just like that, Makhno was the unwilling traitor he had been back at the Eagles Nest. Back when it had all begun, and every member of the crew of the King of England had had to make that choice: rebel or die.
You kind of flip into a very reflective tone, which doesn't have to be bad by any stretch. People reflecting on what led them to this point is normal, I think you just need to tweak the wording a bit.

Consider it like this:
>Men were crying, “Turnwright! Turnwright!”, their fallen leader's name lifted up into the sky, the meek clerk elevated into a god by the voice of thousands; Makhno joined them, screaming “Turnwright!” as if it were a shield against the incoming hail of musket fire.
Obviously, you would phrase this a little differently, but by tweaking the way it flows a bit, you make it PART of the action, which helps it kind of stand out, see?

Nobody helped me in anything here and I could as well not even write this down at this point, because as always nobody is interested in what I'm writing about, but about how. Really, like some bunch of teachers or something.
I always assumed that it would be defeated by captcha, but if you think you can it might be worth a shot.

Speaking of bumps, I'm going to be out of range of internet for most of the next two days, so it'd be good if people could keep an extra close eye on the thread.

Hopefully after I get back I might actually have some time to read the stories that have been posted.

Sleep tight, anon.

Has anyone played a githyanki or used them in a campaign? It feels like they arent utilized very much and kind of forgotten about.

Most monsterous races aren't supported, there are hundreds of them, and few GMs allow them, fewer players play them correctly outside of munchkins min-maxing.

Their theme is a little too "alien" for most settings.
I'm planning on using the Gith (Both sides) if/when I ever run a 3.5 Game where illithids are the main antagonists.

>magic was just superpowers from the beginning retard
Nah, it was the 'superpower' of the god/spirit/demon/angel/alien/etc that does magic on your behalf after you summoned it. Is turning on a flashlight a superpower?
Yes if you're Tony Stark and it's a magic chest flashlight.

What other mind-blowing ideas do you want to bring back with you as you time travel back to the early days of RPGs on the express mission of making all the early nerds mad jelly?
These are less ideas that you can transplant into the past and more like consequences of the expansion of information exchange and the ability to autonomously produce a product due to the advancement of technology.

Think of it this way anon anyone who bought Indomitus has a primaris and necron army. If they bought in last edition primaris and dg and then Indomitus plus whatever faction they may actually want to play as is the case with myself and >>80471847 I also picked up Blackstone Fortress for some CSM and chaos renegades and my actual faction focus of Tau.

Throw in a themed set or combat patrol with models you like and it's easily justifiable.
They still are, while often unsuccessful: on occasion there are cases of ork planets falling due to gsc strains being left alone (either due to infected orks living on as outsiders, or not being found). Hell there is one ork planet that fell even AFTER all the GSC orks got krumped because everything was infected and nids came snack shortly after.

animal handling
Stealth, athletics and perception are the ones you can expect to regularly come up and be actually useful in the moment. This applies to all characters though you can replace athletics with acrobatics for dex builds, it's just about escaping grapples really.
Perception you want high for passive perception checks.

Stealth if you want to be super sneaky. But I find there are better uses. Acrobatics of DEX based, Athletics of STR based.
Nature has uses, as does survival, but entirely DM and campaign specific.
I would consider something you will want to specialize in that complements your attributes.

Historically, a typical medieval barony was about 100 to 200 miles in diameter, assuming a roughly circular shape.

You ARE taking into account the sheer distances involved in travel from barony to barony, right?

>The whole point is to hurt the uppity bitch and put her back in her proper place as nothing more than a used breeding hole

taken down is because the law is fucked basically the one with its ass on the line is the website hosting the content eg youtube so it just kneejerk removes anything that can be remotely considered to be copyrighted to keep its ass safe
I think the vocal in that one were butthurt that his entire channel's worth of content that they loved so much was unceremoniously deleted and they had taken it out on him specifically because GW had essentially ghosted him so he was left to explain himself to angry spergs. They wanted his channel taken down whether or not he decided to join them but they didn't bother following up with him and the stress made him have a meltdown.
Oh it was Sodaz btw. I don't watch 40k fan stuff so I don't know what he made.
