So I guess this explains why the commander RC didn't ban any of the walking dead cards, Wizards literally could not allow the cards to not be playable since they had all of this in the works.

Could any company realistically compete with Wizards of the Coast when it comes to RPGs and how would it happen?
32 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
It doesn't. The idea that bailouts are part of the design of capitalism is a fallacy on par with "socialism is when the government does stuff".
The first step would be somehow convincing people that RPGs are a genre and perhaps inventing a new less awful name for them.
If you say "I play RPGs" or "I play TRPGs" to the average person, even the average "geeky" person, they will have no idea what you mean. Then you say "you know, like D&D" and suddenly they know what you're talking about. To the average person D&D and RPGs are one in the same.
I'd start with one of those board games that's right on the line between RPG and board game (like Gloomhaven) and invent some catchy new name for it (think Fantasy Flight Games' Living Card Game moniker) and then try to expand it into more and more of an RPG.
I think thats more due to youtubers then anything they're doing for their product. lots of people playing now on roll20 for example tend to be teens and sometimes preteens who probably watch CR or some other equivalent
I mean, they would have to stop being absolute retards when it comes to business decisions first. 40K is pretty much at the point where your average student can't afford it so they need to rely on dudes in their mid to late 20'ies and up or kids with access to their parents credit cards and not to mention they got models that are literally over a decade old, so if people don't want to play some of the "loved ones" you have to try to sell them some clearly old looking shit, I've seen several who just went "Nah... It is fine" or "I mean... I guess I could think about it..." due to this shit.
Also Wraith of Glory is shit.

It gets better because that's still missing info. You can't dodge volleys of more than 4 missiles and you need to roll higher than 8 for ranged attacks
I rewrote and made a players handbook and gm guide. Basically I kept percentile skills and strike parry and dodge. Spells were rebalanced so gunshots don’t always dominate
What about Autododge? Its been ages since I played, I mostly just recall that adding more retarded things.
If I'm remembering, you don't have to spend your melee attacks for auto dodge, but if you auto dodge, you can't dodge, I think.

Is it truly horrific, as some here have claimed? Is it repairable? I have mind to try it, if the latter, due to the streamlined rules and the inexperience of my faggot d&d-5e-born gaming group.

Essentially, they decided that what Shadowrun really needed was a metacurrency that you use in pretty much all aspects of gameplay whether in activating abilities, gaining circumstantial bonuses, or healing yourself. One way to acquire this metacurrency is to have a greater Defense rating than your attacker's Attack rating because armor doesn't actually make you harder to kill it just helps to offset your opponent having a scope.

So if you allow an enemy that has now real way to actually damage you attack you (said hobo with shiv), you'll build up your Edge (the metacurrency) as he fails to do anything until you can spend it to help yourself.
So.... I hire 4 drunk hobos to bumrush me, which I ignore, and then use my super-charged attack against the real enemy?
Yep. It's trash

Would theocracies be more popular in a world where gods are 100% confirmed and can communicate with people? A lot of times people will say “The gods are busy”. Well, I wouldn’t want to worship a god that was too busy to guide my country. Also, why couldn’t there be a leadership or civilization god then?

I would think nature and wilderness would be ten times scarier since every wolf god, river god, hunter god, tree god, and whatever leftover gods from ancient peoples that lived there are all real. Cutting down trees would be the most dangerous job around.

But anon. Context matters. Angels are almost always humanoid or given no description at all. They're almost never described as literal monstrosities, and the couple times it could be said that they were are in depictions of the end times which are supposed to be wild and unlike anything anyone has ever seen

What discord bots do you guys use for running games
A dice bot of your choice that rolls the dice your system needs. Quarantined in it's own bot channel where it can't see anything else. That's all you need.

>NAME and NAMING thread.

Feel free to discuss your own naming issues or stories. Had a player name their character something absolutely retarded? Tell us about it!
Or, either post pictures that you want named, character ideas, or see if other people like your fantasy names!

I want to rename an ancient, DeviantArt-named character called Darkwoth, an Elven Mage and Legendary Hero. I've used the name for almost two decades, and it's so ingrained in my brain that I don't even detect the cringe or edge anymore, but I know if I that name has gotta go. He's only edgy in looks, really, his personality is very laid back and regal.
Pic related is probably the best image I could find that fits him that I didn't draw myself.

My rename idea currently Shira'Zen, but another I might want to use is Harkovenn.

Does anyone have anything for shamans, especially female ones?
I work in metal band names that are made up words to use as part of a lot of my characters names.
Either single syllable, or repeated syllable.

Hel, Gi, Rhara, Kiki, etc.
Take an existing name you like the sound of and change it up a bit. I started out with Hathaway, and ended up with Tathawycz. Sounded a bit orcish to me, so I made Targus Tathawycz, half-orc BMF
>Either single syllable, or repeated syllable.
And why does that work for shamans precisely?

I have a question for you anons. I've been considering other, different ways to do gods in a setting for a while. I likely won't be running a huge, detailed campaign for a while more since my group has decided we want to spend more time on trying new systems and I'm not putting a massive amount of work into a world and its pantheon for 10 sessions.

By 'different ways to do gods', I mean something beyond the standard pantheon of gods that tend to have equal power, optionally with a head skyfather deity. Nothing inherently wrong, but I think trying new things could be fun. The idea that seems most appealing to me so far is an almost Shinto or Hawaiian religion where there is no great god, but more a number of 'mortal' (killable) spirits and beasts with a very localised worship that reflect the land itself. Other idea is that of a rarely seen monotheistic world with simply a capital G God. There is also the potential for something along the lines of hinduism, but that might not work too well considering most people I've met and talked about this with (which includes myself) have difficulties understanding hindu gods and how they're simultaneously all one being and all separate beings.
The only 2 other ways I've seen gods done in a setting are the 'ascended mortal' type gods where a paragon is selected to ascend to godhood by some kind of mystical force and a setting where the gods are so distant that it's really not clear what's going on with them.

I'd be interested to hear how you did gods, what they were like

They loathe Bumpfag for his idiotic tampering with the cycle of life.
Don't have gods, but more like the natural flow of nature and the universe could be seen by the people as a god. Basically, just copy the concept of Truth from FMA:Brotherhood.

How large should the gods be? Should they be human sized? Gigantic?

What about the pantheon’s relationship with the giants of the setting?
Their relationship is a conspiracy to exterminate Bumpfag.
>Basically, just copy the concept of Truth from FMA:Brotherhood.
Wasn’t Truth a bit of a jerk about things?
