What have you been up to /tg/?
Now that were more months into plague time how has your tabletop life adapted?

Most of my campaigns and contacts were online before so the only change has been my one IRL group moving from using discord to coordinate schedules to using it to play.

for a one long yearly christmas of cthulu session game i made The Ace, a bumbling laid back poker player who gets by with some all around knowledge and sheer dumb luck. lived off of poker and small investments that paid off (mix of The Dude and abit of a typical vegas card shark, more dumb luck than a plotter).

we gathered at a mansion invited by an old college bro under the intention of a reunion and totally not some evil ritual. was expecting to use the handsome luck stat to boost some rolls, but i never even needed to use it and was somehow naturally lucky with my rolls and situations. stumbled across the solution to an escape room situation and different switches/items needed to progress the plot. when all hell broke loose and we assembled the christmas offerings in a pentagram and summoned Satan-Claws, i held my composure, and offered some cookies and a half drunken White Russian. he responded with "you shall suffer the least". killed some peeps and he started reaving souls. when nobody succeeded in trying to sent Satan back, someone bolted, and he was ready to claim our souls. but i asked him that i like, there was still stuff i wanted to do and like, cant i like live for abit longer? didnt even think about what i was asking, and rolled stupid high to convince him. he wrote an evil mark on my chest and i became his vessel, to which i said "far out".

i managed to survive by befriending christmas satan with cookies and an alcoholic milk based beverage, sold my sold for a longer life unintentionally, and become his broski/henchman to help him claim souls. and my character did all this with a white russian in his hands at all times from the start.

What would be the right pick here? Assume I don't raredraft and I don't care about constructed or any other format.

>>73648031
Honestly, I'd pick Discontinuity. Exiles all spells on the stack, so it;s a counterspell that way, and in draft you take all the removal and countering you can. Also can be a Time Walk or a Fog (use it on your opponent's attack step) so it's expensive but really versatile. I've won games with Fog and Holy Day before, they're really good cards.

The other cards that stands out to me are Secure the Scene, Blood Glutton and Roaming Searchlight. Secure the Scene is removal, so if you're wanting to play white it;s a solid pick. Roaming Searchlight is 3 power flying and an unsummon for only 5 mana, solid stuff. Blood Glutton is a huge tempo swing if it survives for more than one or two turns, I've seen games put away by silly little things like Markov Patrician and nip Gwillion holding an Edge of Divinity just because the opponent couldn't answer it for a couple turns, don't underestimate how much the lifegain helps, especially against fast aggressive decks.
>>
>>73650542
It's a weak pack. The real alternative is roaming ghostlight which is also 5-cost, and not a card you would splash for. The slow removal is the safest pick.
>>
>>73649164
>>73651542
Secure the scene is horribly positioned in this format, Roaming Ghostlight is as close to a bomb as it gets at common. If you're splashing for a secure the scene, you already lost, whereas Roaming Ghostlight is gonna make all of your blue decks.

>Make them keep track of material components.
Anyone who serious says this like this was ever a thing or a ever intended to be a balancing point for spell casters should not talk about balancing magic. Material Components wasn't even put in the game until the supplement that gave us the druid and psionics and by it's own admission was something you weren't supposed to be too much attention too unless the were notably expensive.

Coffee's availability is dependent on how much trade a region receives, and how warm of a climate it is. If an area is shut off from the rest of the world and doesn't get much trade, I probably won't make coffee available. If it's a cosmopolitan city, I probably will make it available.
>>
This thread is a graveyard holy fuck. But to answer your question yes, technically. The more advanced civilization that my games revolve around do not have coffee as the climate isn't suitable, but the lesser known regions do in fact brew it. If ever there should be major contact between the civilizations then coffee would become a hot commodity.

Does your setting have winter holidays? What are they like?
>>
While Cultures vary across the continent and outlying islands, midwinter festivals are a rare common factor. The winter solstice is a time of great power, great unrest. On such an auspicious night, the barriers between this plane and others blur, especially those to the faewild. Humans are known to throw wild parties on this night, allowing all to attend. This is done in the hopes that faeries may join the feativities, and choose not to wreak havoc in the time they have on this plane. It is a time for all to remember they are together, and that they may stand against the cold and hunger alongside one another. Before the fury of winter, all are equal. Kings and Knights intermingle with peasants, and even human racial prejudices are temporarily suspended. For if Halflings bring their fine wines or Orcs bring great beasts to be cooked, that is naughty but a cause for celebration this night. Of course, such festivals are often cover for dark dealings or surprise raids. Still, the Solstice festivals continue, for what’s a little violence to stop some good times?

>>73647110
Boss Monster, Unstable Unicorns, Munchkin and the like are all party games. They're not meant to be a game where players compete with each other with customized decks with some depth of strategy, they're meant to sell to people who have a ready group of friends and just want something to do for an afternoon, maybe more.

World of Darkness (Wod) and Chronicles of Darkness (CoD / CofD) general thread.

TEAMWORK EDITION!

What's the greatest example of teamwork you've seen in a game?

For me it was a team of know nothing, 3 night old fledgelings, coordinating to contain a dangerous plague spreading ancilla vampire who they had staked, but needed to question (and so unstake), without being ripped to bits or enslaved or who knows what.

in a few hours they managed to acquire concrete, a bathrub, PVC pipe, and a crossbow and rig some wooden bolts.

So they sealed the ancilla in concrete i n the bathtub with the PVC pressed against his chest, creating a free channel so they could pull the steak out, and restake him with the crossbow at will.

Not much of one to tell. Uh, we'd had issues of what we thought were standard cultists in assorted churches fucking with local business interests, with the worst in synagogues (probably because our st is hiding his power level). The 'vampire werewolf' was a cosplaying black spiral dancer who was mumbling crazy talk about drinking the gore and souls and whatever else could be come up with. We put it down but it was the last straw for Gino, who to be fair I'd been basically playing as one step from a fish malk because I am an awful person. The thrust of it was black spiral dancers moving into religious parts of the city using churches/synaguges/mosques as vehicles and playing into the stereotypes of each appropriate minister of faith.

So I wrote notes to the st and from then on it was assumed in off hours he'd just cruise around screaming and raving into the airwaves in his mobile Creepy White Truth Van. He was throwing out whatever they group had recently uncovered about 'The Conspiracy' who just happened to be a pack of jewish vampire fur lizards as the campaign continued.

I probably should have seen it coming when he asked me to describe the exact route and I told him a grid pattern of the city so eventually the players got told to find the crazy fucker and stake him, Gino speaks up and goes "He's not crazy, he's me!" and gets murdered for interrupting the Prince's weekly radio drama every night and straining the masquerade a bit. Fair cop, really.

How would you make a combined arms strategy in a fantasy world? I want to make it so my world uses anachronistically modern tactics but old equipment and fantastical technology. Essentially, full plate is common enough for normal soldiers to wear it and functions as both magical powered armor and a tactical interface, with the helmet displaying information about the battlefield and is capable of contacting a "radio operator" that relays commands to the group. Infantry use a mixture of melee weapons, crossbows, and crude firearms and work alongside Da Vinci-style tanks, gliders, and airships, coordinating attacks on enemy positions and generally moving like a pseudo-modern military unit in an otherwise gritty medieval fantasy world. It may be a bit impractical but I mostly like the aesthetic of it.

A vehicle can shoot even if its close combat.

But only against units that are with it in close combat

Then theres an exception if the vehicle has more then one ranged weapon. Where it can declare against targets its not in close combat with

It can only resolve those attacks if the unit't that it are engaged with are destroyed.

As long as there are units in close combat with it it suffers a -1 to hit with heavy weapons.


Huh. Interesting, on closer inspection its not super clear what happens if the unit that is within close combat stops being in close combat, but also isnt destroyed.

Yeah, the issue is, while the gm may try to invent something new, he still has to communicate it to the players. Meanwhile many players are just happy to have the same tropes as usual.
