does your setting have gods / demons / other supernatural beings that were originally and actively created by humans? not summoned, but "build" from the ground up?

And it is a heresy worth calling an inquisition.
Also in another setting, I am running that is super high magic, bordering on magitech golems are a big part of the culture. Dozens of mages weave their "AI" together by combining magic "programs" to achieve actual sentience. This is now forbidden since many years ago one such golem reached true sentience and developed a soul does becoming able to cast magic. A whole city was genocide to cover up its existence.

You mean for GI-level soldiers? The Steiners probably, on account of being filthy rich anyway, followed by the FWL, though the supply chain´s probably limited to each state´s home field and the common rations are probably worse.

Davions will naturally not feed common soldiers if they can save the money for clanspec lasers instead and Kurita officers expect you to sustain yourself on bushido and your feelings of loyalty for the Coordinator.

Yeah but I imagine it's to reduce the number of coincidences. alone it's normal, but factoring in the pristine mechs many of which might no longer be in use in the IS, all with advanced tech and the like, people are still asking questions but the less things you give them to question the better.

I had a demon named Tutor of One-Thousand Butchers, whose deal was that he was an 'altruistic' demon that taught mortals for free the benefits of the chaotic-evil lifestyle. He was like an evil Kamina from TTGL, inspiring you to be the best version of yourself, unrestrained by the chains that were placed upon you by others like 'law' or 'empathy' or 'mercy'. Never do anything except because it was what YOU chose to do, and have the power to see it through to the end.

Kikimoras in Slavic Eastern Europe mythology are apparently house spirits that pretty much serve as cleaners and caretakers for some houses.

While the Shogs, much like in the Lovecraft stories they are based from. Are servants of some Eldritch race who rebelled to be monstergirls for human boys.

I wonder how helpful monster/spirit mythology gets started. Just like Santa I guess. "I left the house to go shopping and when I came back it was clean! A helpful spirit must live here!"

"Where this gift come from?"
"Santa brought it to you!"

Except true-to-folklore Kikimoras are the opposite of servants. They smash your shit and constantly make a mess of your house.

Nicknamed "the vibrator" by titan pilots, a thermokinetic resonator is a type of fusion reactor that functions as a sonic cannon. Ionized deuterium is fed into a U-shaped magnetic pipe, where a series of femtosecond laser pulses trigger fusion; normally these reactions would not be self-sustaining, but by carefully tuning the field geometry and pulse timings it is possible to create a resonant shockwave along the length of the pipe that results in around a 65% conversion of hydrogen into helium.
This energy is released from the ends of the pipe as a tight ultrasonic beam with a sound pressure exceeding 270 decibels, enough to seriously injure a kaiju and completely pulverize concrete buildings. The resonator can fire continuously as long as it has fuel, but the recoil is severe and the titan must anchor itself to the ground while firing. It is normally used against slow, heavily armored kaiju, as faster kaiju can easily avoid it.

The sole purpose of having levels and everybody leveling at the same pace and every in game difficulty being the same is to have everybody roughly equally powerful.

>inherently antithetical to the gameplay fantasy of a knight-style character
Cool we're on the same page here and you acknowledge that's not and never was D&D a game in which the first campaign ever had a Space ship with aliens and pew pew guns, Native American elves and Mongols.
>>
>>77748488
Another thought (at least as far as D&D is concerned):
More scaling for physical abilities so they seem worthwhile.
Using 5e as an example (because my memories of 3.5 are a little fuzzy). There's no reason why a fighter with 12 strength and a fighter with 20 strength should be able to throw a javelin the same distance. Sure, it's a +1 to damage vs a +5, but despite being 4 "standard deviations" above, you still can't throw things any further.
Carry weight (without variant rules) is ability score*15 at PEAK mortal/humanoid, you can carry comfortably 300lbs, or push/lift/drag at 5ft/6seconds 600lbs (roughly 272kg, which google tells me is approx the weight of a grand piano). Before getting into if that's too high/low, imagine what someone could do when they know they can safely lift a grand piano at-will, what other feats of strength can they be expected to do?

Keep in mind, there are "strong-men" who can pull trucks (or planes if memory serves) in the guiness book of world records, which another google search tells me would require 889kg of force (I don't quite get the math, just found a website that took into account "rolling resistance"), which kind of makes "the highest strength one can have without magical assistance" seem a little low-balling and a kick in the shins for martials.

How long can someone with 20 constitution hold their breath for? How long was Beowolf fighting Grendel's mother for underwater (you might have to forgive me for this one if I'm misremembering, it has been a while)? Probably more than the "6 minutes". Hell someone who devotes time to just holding their breath underwater holds the record at ~24 minutes. Sure a "martial" is expected to fight at the same time, but it still feels a little cheap.

When real human world records are eclipsing the "heroic fantasy" version of "peak form" things are looking pretty bleak for Martials.

A system that hasn't been relevant for decades. Also, the entie POINT of tieflings is they aren't inherently evil(vs say a Cambion Half-Fiend) so you still did a bad.

>implying they care
A. D&D settings socially and technologically are consistently not medieval at all.
B. Actually Real Good Gods would definitely care if some people are committing infanticide in their name. If anything "you need to murder all those tiefling babies so they want corrupt you" feels like a meme actual Devils and Fiends would try to place among the populace to ensure more people damn themselves.

If it's set in stone, what were they disagreeing over?
>>
>>77761706
What I mean is, what we agreed to at the start of the campaign ran into their exceptions vis-a-vis a "Star Wars" and meta knowledge. We started to drift back to 'canon' SW but not everyone went there at the same speed or about the same topics. So someone would be like "wait I thought x wasn't canon for our game?" and someone else would respond "no no I thought for sure we agreed to y." Etc.
