Yeah, there were a lot of gothic kingdoms, some as far as north Africa. Gonna have to be specific.
That's what I figured a proper hobbit lady would be.

Hobbits might be lazy, but they are very good-hearted folk. So I figure that a lady hobbit would be the physical embodiment of a sunbeam. Like Frodo and Sam even in their most dire moments are pretty pure guys, who stay relatively optimistic throughout the journey and avoid giving into resentment, hate, or despair (up until like the final moments of course).
The "proper civilized hobbit" part was more about her unsettled wanderlusting ways. As Gandalf notes, Hobbits are surprisingly resilient in the face of despair.

Nah, hobbits are too grounded for pure moefaggotry. She would end pretty wholesome but more like a team mom/little sister. Fangirling for elves (like Sam did) even as she would be scared as fuck of monsters... at the start, at least.

That's the point: they were not "specifically" inspired. Especially considering the Eorlingas and their ancestor had quite a convoluted and migratory history.
>That's the point: they were not "specifically" inspired. Especially considering the Eorlingas and their ancestor had quite a convoluted and migratory history.

I would say they were given the rather direct parallels we already talked about between the kings hall and Beowulf.

Besides "convoluted and migratory history" is not a bad description of the Saxons

>The ariadna TAG is not a dog face in power armor
>The miniature also looks nothing like the concept art
TAG Ride continues to disappoint.
The problem is all the hero units with wildcard or special "can join fireteam". They power creeped the line troops out of their own fireteam niche and back into being cheerleaders.
Kuroshi Rider fills Yojimbo's niche sufficiently at first, I'd be buying some Domaru and Tanko if I were you (which is as 5 months ago).
Keisotsu SWC box, which includes your second Kempeitai. After that, I'd recommend Yaokongs, Rui Shi+Lu Duan, and Support Pack. That will give you a solid core on top of which you can try out various singleton pieces or which can support one of the chunky HI teams (Tanko, Domaru, Karakuri).

Normal people don't like the chinese government.

/pol/ obsesesses over hating china regardless of any context.

It's like how back in the 50's, granpa thought that Sputnik was a communist mind-control device instead of just a satellite, cause if a communist uses a toilet it can only be for nefarious purposes.
In the North, flat fields and good wheat land along a river prone to droughts or randomly changing course and flooding everything.
In the South, deep river valleys and rice paddies carved into the hillsides along a river prone to floods.
In the East, fertile coastal plains as well as a third, artificial river prone to filling in and needing a fuckton of corveed peasants to dig out and possibly die in the process.
In the West, tall mountain ranges barely controlled by the Empire.
In the northeast, hills covered in thick, barely settled forests. In the northwest, a dry desert that is the only route to the west.
To the Far North, steppes inhabited by tributary barbarians. To the Far South, dense jungles inhabited by once-tributary 'barbarians'.
Scattered throughout, small mountain ranges and stone forests of incredible beauty and inaccessibility, home to many martial arts sects.
In the Center, the most beautiful and prosperous slice of land to ever exist.
Anon is showing his ignorance of the mindset of the average person living in Mainland China.
Meanwhile, you defend them as fellow communists, and dream of the day you can carry out similar atrocities (as you people love to gloat all the fucking time).

And yes, it is YOU who does that, because you people are the only ones obsessed with /pol/.
If the Chinese people literally didn't even know about Tiananmenn square, then "May 35th" or whatever would never have become a meme on their social media years ago.

Welcome to the Old School Renaissance General, the thread dedicated to TSR-era D&D, derived systems, and compatible content.

Broadly, OSR games encourage a tonal and mechanical fidelity to Dungeons & Dragons as played in the game's first decade -- less emphasis on linear adventures and overarching meta-plots and a greater emphasis on player agency.

I don't have a link to it, but Mornard's story "Up in the Air, Junior Birdmen!" is the one you want.
As the other guy kind of intimated, these are Chainmail rules terms, explaining how to run them in the implied wargaming context of encountering e.g. 180 bandits in the wilderness, or 260 goblins.

But yes, by and large you can assume that. There's some wonk around what a shield means in context which... but anyway, yes, more or less. On the other hand, you typically don't *need* to since the "composition of force" normally mentions the exact equipment of the Light Horse or whatever it is.

>Composition of Force: Light Foot (Leather Armor & Shield) = 40%; Short Bow (Leather Armor) or Light Crossbow (same) = 25%; Light Horse (Leather Armor & Shield) = 25%; Medium Horse (Chain Mail & Shield, no horse barding) = 20%

Note that there's a goof in the original here where the troop types add up to 110% (most likely there should only be 10% Medium Horse), but the armor types are consistently provided.
Clean this up and pdf it.
I like the cut of your jib sir
God I wish I could remember where this was posted but, someone years ago posted a simple system that advanced a monster that survived against the party into a recurring BBEG. It advanced off screen as the party leveled and continued in the adventure. It would gain HD and minions and a lair and had it's plans going on, etc. Does this sound familiar to anyone? It was on a blog if I remember right.

>he should have bought them all
I actually don’t think all the Primarchs were ever together in one place. The most that were ever in one spot was something like half of them, mainly because they can’t just hit pause and spend months/years going back to Terra every time a new one is found.

Some of the Primarchs never even seem to have met each other.
Nothing would have fixed Morty and Lorgar. One was so bound up in his resentment and despair he would have aimed it at any father figure. And Lorgar was Lorgar.
Imagine if he hadn’t. Curze could have, right there and then, ended everything before it even began.
Interesting point. What primarch canonically never actually met?

For all of the new and old lore of 40k, which is your personal favorite?
198 replies and 46 images omitted. Click here to view.
why's that ?
So just out of curiossity. Is it known what happens when other races get infected by gene stealers?
I know that for the tau its basically the same as for humans. It is directly mentioned that they can infect orks as well, since an inquisitior intentionally causing a genestealer infestation in an ork waagh was central to the plot of the octarius war. It is mentioned that ork ecology and tyranid ecology combat eachother on a microscopic level, but it doesn't go into detail. I think I read in a ciaphas cain novel that infected orks on a space hulk acted like regular orks around others but when skulking off from the waagh to do gene stealer shit they acted in a much more coordinated and organized manner than regular orks. When discovered behaving in a distinctly un-orky fashion the rest of the orks turned on them. I'm not 100% ciaphas cain was a canon series though.

As for eldar, theoretically any species can be gene-stealered by the nids, but it would seem extremely rare for eldar since they have the sex drive of pandas with erectile dysfunction and are so psychically sensitive that they'd likely easily identify something was wrong with an individual. It hasn't really been covered in canon to my knowledge though.
That was part of the reason, the other part was that the Tau were horribly mangled as a concept. They were boring and broken on tabletop and their fluff painted them as this incredible Mary Sue state that could kick the ass of the Imperium. Gw doubled down by explaining their victories with asspulls. I love the Tau, but a lot of mistakes where made here.

But it's so juicy.
I'd second this Anon >>80473731 with a very reasonable point. Probably wouldn't work as a sole evidence by itself, but could very much be a nail to the coffin on an otherwise disputable verdict.
>Crewmen are more "voyages of Sinbad" than pirates I'd say.

I agree, but I'd still recommend them as bits if nothing else, they blend great with the Free Militia for a pirate theme.

Personally I like using their Vikings and their Tribal sets to make Norse Marauders that don't just feel like Chaos-Lite.
In addition to what others have said: It would probably be reason to search things, primarily in the upper class, but not evidence itself. "The papers on his rebellion are here", rather than "The stars say he is plotting rebellion."

Too much power to the Wizards, otherwise.

For context - a notable Altdorfian mage known for making wild, but generally accurate ('A Beast of Fire and Flames will devour the House of the Slaughtered Lamb!' - Two weeks later there's a fire at the butchers), prophesies has forseen that the Emperor is going to be killed by the PCs.

The PCs were arrested and are going to court. I'll let them sweat it a bit and have fun figuring out a defense for themselves before letting them off - I'm just using this section of the adventure as a method to get the players to the attention of villain and also build into the plot of the campaign. I'm just curious as to how serious a magister would take the evidence if it was the ONLY evidence.

It’s okay anon, that just means you fit in with the other players of the army
Brotherhood of Nature has always been kinda memy, as an actual army. None of their units are particularly good on their own, and they don't really complement each other very well.
If you slot them into other armies, though, they can be absolute beasts: mix a squadron of Owl Knights into a Hearthguard army and you actually have an easy method of ignoring Morale, through the Knights' strong Presence scores. There's a reason you pay out the ass for Hearthguard's native high Presence units.
Though most tournaments don't actually allow mixed-faction lists, which is unfortunate.
What I just don't understand is why the most recent box set came with a fleshlight based on one of the monsters, that was never announced as being part of the release.

Due to some ancient war, giants are a part of human culture and are usually town protectors and heavy labor. Affects farmers and really most commoners because they consume a large amount of food/resources.
Merfolks blew up the world a long time ago and haunt it as a whirling torrent of ghosts during the night.
The ancient Dwarven mountain-based kingdom was slightly kinder than usual so they adopted the nearby human (specifically an ethnic grouping known as the Balaric peoples) realms as client-kingdoms. Eventually due to interlinking alliances they formed the Dwarf-Human equivalent of the Holy Roman Empire.

The new Emperor is the king of a second-rate human realm who only won the election because a bunch of human kingdoms and jealous second-rate dwarf kings voted for him to wrest power away from the traditional dwarven high kings' dynasty
The most common power source for the machinery you'd use come from steam cores: atomically unstable and magically unstable minerals bound within a device that uses the radiation to boil water for steam. This world has no prehistory so there's extremely little coal or petroleum reserves, leaving nuclear as the only option.
That's actually quite cool, any alliances or factions the PCs can join? Dwarves struggling with modernity is always such a joy when played well
