None of the Clans that lost were in much of a position to grief anyone.

Even the Wolves suffered over 60% equipment losses and they won their fights.

Yeah, in the next section the Gunslinger points out that's exactly how the Diamond Shark campaign differed (they were allowed to stick around) and all they got to show for it was a bodycount at a worse loss ratio.

Why are there so many people that don't... fit social norms in gaming? My personal group is mainly white/asian nerds, no tattoos/piercings/etc, but I seem to see A LOT of people with green hair, dressing like extras from twilight, covered in piercings, etc. Any idea why?

Also what's with the massive tranny/gay presence in gaming? Not that I hate them or anything, there just is a lot of them. Most of my other hobbies don't have anywhere near as many (shooting, lifting, etc).

A thread for the best fictional sub-genre, and it's subsequent sub-sub-genres

Thread question, where is the line drawn between science fiction, sci-fantasy, and fantasy? It's a blurry subjective area and I wanna hear what you fa/tg/uys think about it.

Also post cool art because sci-fantasy art is always awesome and evocative

Just doing my part to keep the thread going, cheers.
"Fantastic Planet" is a 70s French animated film and a great find if you are looking for the triply 70s sci-fi aesthetic.
Another French animated film that fits into the aesthetic, is Gandahar, It has a more dynamic compared to "fantastic planet" which feels slow at times.
Here's the pic
This thread is probably the best place to ask this but what are good media or recommended systems for the "Cristal spires and togas" aestetic of sci-fi/fantasy? Things similar to the film "Logans Run" and the like.

Why skaven don't use necromancy?
25 replies and 4 images omitted. Click here to view.
Why would a race so abundant that they can afford to stab each other in the back considerably more than the Dark Eldar without any societal collapse ever want even more abundant, braindead soldiers - when what they actually want is cannibalized food for their existing abundant, braindead soldiers? The skaven literally already have more bodies than the capacity to put basic knives in their hands. They don't need anymore thralls.
Isn't the issue more that necromancy in Warhammer is a human art, and the further away from human you get the harder it is to use necromancy on the corpse?
IIRC Vampires have a hard time making dwarf/elf undead, and it's not even worth trying for lizardmen and other similar creatures.
Everybody would just be paranoid that the necromancer controlling the hoard would betray them (and they'd be right) so they'd just have him killed.

Necromancy is out of the domain of the Horned Rat.

Skaven magic (grey seer stuff, pestilence stuff, warlock engineering etc) is tied to the GHR one way or another and as such it is a way to control them. It will allow them to make use of some non-Skaven magic here and there like a stolen enchanted sword or something as a means to an end, is begrudgingly. But others are big no-gos, for they involve forces beyond it's control and either have a mind of it's own or are under the domain of others.

The Skaven are the Horned Rat's race made in it's image and it is a Possessive God. If one of it's Rats ended up a servant of Nagash, or for that matter the Chaos Gods, Gork and Mork, Sigmar Isha, Sotek or whatever is unacceptable. A few Skaven try to master arcane arts beyond those approved by the Horned One, but for their efforts their fate is to be thoroughly eradicated by their Diety, alone with any bystanders nearby. Unless of course said bystanders shank the transgressor first.
undeath is antithetical to chaos and the skaven exist only to serve the great horned rat, a chaos god

just a friendly bump before work
So does having a braindance recorder make any other form of recording equipment basically a waste of money unless you just want redundancy or more artistic ways to record information?
I asked in last thread but never got an answer. Is there any material that explains the background and limits of stuff like psychotropic effects and chipware?
I'm fairly certain the old 2020 corebook did talk about how skill chips and other chipware work in lore, I don't know if any more information was anywhere else besides the descriptions of items.
The drugs and other stuff generally had a basic description of their psychological effects listed with them.
Well, for one, you don't always want to be receiving all the info received. If you're in a braindance of a rave, you wouldn't be down to feel sad because the recorder saw an old ex.
Secondly, I imagine that there's a decent amount of editing required to get it actually viewable. If the recorder has twitchy eyes and you just wanna focus on one thing, it'd be really annoying.

Basically, while braindance does a lot of things at once, I don't imagine that it'd be any better than dedicated equipment.

So, I'm planning out rules for a potential Desert Wars game, and I've hit a snag. How do I make vehicle combat within the Desert Wars' mostly non-lethal combat work? The first step is to declare "all vehicles are piloted by offsite riggers in cold-sim" so that vehicles can blow each other up all day with no deaths. But what about vehicle-vs-metahuman engagements? You can't just say "all man-portable weapons are loaded with stick-n-shock and deal electricity damage", because then nobody can take any of the cool anti-vehicle weapons. No rockets, no lasers, no assault cannon, no nothing. And you can't just say "that 120mm cannon is loaded with stick-n-shock", because that's ridiculous.

What gear would be required to allow 1) vehicles to blow each other up, 2) metahumans to blow vehicles up, 3) metahuman-on-metahuman combat to be non-lethal, and 4) vehicle-on-metahuman combat to be non-lethal?

Inb4 "Desert Wars vehicles actually just use computers to calculate when the other vehicle WOULD be disabled and then it's bricked", I've read that fluff, it's boring, it's not canon in my game. People watch to see explosions!
I think itd be fine if they did it the way 2E did and not have a weird built-in community hierarchy, instead just having mostly randos with funny names and the occasional recurring poster
I'd be fine with recurring NPCs if they didn't devolve into OC donut steel wankery and stuck to topics you would expect them to be interested/educated in. A decker having decker opinions on decker tools, sure, but I couldn't give a solitary fuck about Slamm-0's opinion on Istabul and how it somehow relates to his son or whatever. The posting schtick is at its best when it's simply being used to convey extra information on the topic.

What are your thoughts on angels and demons? How well do they get along? What makes them get along- or rather not get along? What sort of powers do angels and demons have? What sort of heirarchies do they have? What parts of heaven, hell, or inbetween do they live in or like? What's their opinion on each-other or on mortals?

See I've never understood this.

Like say an Angel has to go to Pizza Hut. They aren't born with perfect knowledge, only God is, so they don't know where Pizza Hut is. So I lie, and I tell the Angel that Pizza Hut is two blocks north. So the Angel gets there and finds out the Pizza Hut isn't there. If I tell them that the Pizza Hut was actually in fact two blocks to the south, do they go 'no, I'm incapable of changing my ways, I'm going to stay here at this wrong location out of spite rather than accommodate new information'?
if an angel needed to go to pizza hut, it would know where pizza hut is.
Oh, and a frog. Nice to know that you're a gay lobotomite, not even worth the bullet used to give you brain damage.
What if it's a new Pizza Hut?
Then the angel will know when and where the pizza hut is built and fully operational. They know ALL they need to know.

Just asking if anyone has played or played with a Monster Hunter type character, and how it went? I've been thinking for a while on making a Slayer type character and was hoping to get some inspiration. So please tell me stories of epics where players dedicated their lives to the dangerous pursuits of hunting down the creatures of the Night; be it a Witcher-esque scenario where every move has to be careful and one slip up could cost you you're life or a Monster Hunter Series style adventure through vase and diverse ecosystems and beating the shit out giant animals.

You mother fuckers have magic in your settings.
What do you FAGGOTS do with it?
Make +1 swords, and shoot fireballs at people.
Holy mother of god the lack of imagination is actually astounding.
You don’t chain fire elementals inside a small metal box, and produce infinite free energy.
You don’t domesticate regenerating creatures for infinite supplies of meat.
You don’t create magical greenhouses with magical lights, allowing agriculture to operate 24/7/365
You dont have magical water purifiers
You don’t even have animated broom sticks to sweep the floor.
There should be an entire economy of ‘artisan mages’ who produce supernatural goods for consumers.
There should be entire universities whos job is to educate people to become magical engineers, doctors, and technicians.

The problem is that people misunderstand the nature of magic as a concept.

The juxtaposition of magic and science is a new idea. Historically (i.e. before the common use of the scientific method), magic was special knowledge known only to few.
Look at the etymology of words like 'arcane', 'mystic' and 'occult'. They all mean secret, hidden or mysterious. Magic is defined as the opposite of common knowledge. That's why blacksmiths are commonly associated with the occult - they had trade secrets passed from master to apprentice.
Magic is not opposed to science because it is supernatural or unpredictable per se. It is opposed to science because science favours the proliferation of knowledge while magic is fundamentally about hoarding knowledge.

If magic is commonplace, well-understood and used for mundane tasks, it ceases to be magic and becomes science.
Looks like /lit/ is leaking lobotomites and loonies again.
Like most people complaining about Tolkien fantasy, this has basically nothing to do with Tolkien's works. In LOTR magic is exceptionally rare, with only 5 actual wizards. Saruman basically does your post, using his magic combined with technology to power an evil military industrial complex and make slightly less shit orcs. Except of course that Middle Earth doesn't have endlessly regenerating creatures or fire elementals.

As for sweeping with magic, Gandalf probably already does this since he is fond of whimsical and practical magics.

Happy post turkey day fellas remember to be nice and finish up any leftovers you may still have.
Corpulent Knight and Turkey is a cute combo.
Wizards are inherently bastards. If they tried to be good they'd stop being wizards. He'd be better off striking a deal with Pridellius like all the other sensible madmen.
How does one become powerful enough to turn the wizard into a waifu
As in Smugh or the companion? Because Smugh is basically a god, the other could use the genderswap reward or you can just romance Smughs daughter aka the nothic.

On the surface, Spring and Autumn both bow to Winter. The Court of Sorrow appeals to Autumn's fear and Spring's denial and by exploiting this common ground, it reinforces the idea that the best course of action is inaction. Open and care-free exploitation of Contracts, the Hedge and Oneiromancy is frowned upon, but Winter doesn't punish this too severely. The biggest crime of all is any sort of offensive action against the Others and their servants, out of fear of a reprisal, and there's some debate as to whether fetches can be considered servants of the Gentry. There's plenty of internal conflict in the courts though, as Courtiers of Autumn and Spring aren't unanimous in their support of Winter's continued dominance.

The big theme of the chronicle was going to be the duality of acceptance and rebellion, and the positives and negatives of the status quo.
This sounds very rad, thanks for talking about it.

Hope you get to play it eventually.
/CofD/, how much exposure to God-Machine shenanigans should turn a human stigmatic? Would witnessing a demon's/angel's true form be enough? Or should it take actually wandering into some Infrastructure and witnessing a piece of Its machinery in all Its glory?
Cheers. Likelihood of me running it is nonexistent now, so I'm content to just post about it here every now and then.
