We should just have purple worms slither across the grounds like snakes.

Ya, its ok. Saving throw reduction and good social skills early which is never a bad thing to have at any stage of the game. Definitely not as good as a lot of other bards but definitely better than valor, whispers or swords...
I think not needed to breathe is very flavorful. If you tell your DM your character just never breathes you’re immune to any airborne poisons, spores, whatever

Meanwhile Earth Genasi can ignore only a specific type of difficult terrain and cast Pass without Trace. Yawn!

>What is /awg/?
A thread to talk about minis and games which fall between the cracks, or peoples' homebrew wargames. The >>>/tg/hwg doesn't entertain fantasy (for good reason), >>>/tg/gwsg handles GW's abandoned stepchildren, and the other threads are locked to very specific games. This thread isn't tied to a game, a publisher, or a genre, let's just talk about fun wargames.
Any scale, any genre, any company, any minis. Skirmishers welcome. Rules designers welcome.

>Examples of games that qualify
OnePageRules, Mighty Armies, Warmachine & Hordes, Dragon Rampant, Oathamark, Mortal Gods, Kings of War, Deadzone, Warpath, Frost/Stargrave, Hordes of the Things, Conquest, Songs of Blades and Heroes, Dark Age, Beyond the Gates of Antares. Malifaux and anything else that doesn't necessarily have a dedicated thread.

They have released. Looks but they're all shit. They're barely fan fiction tier.

I wouldn't bother getting into a slap fight with these retards. There's a couple of furry pedos in the general. They constantly jump systems and are easy to spot.

Allesio needs to fuck off. It's so tiresome seeing the same set of ex GW employees designing games. It's incestuous and creates a bad environment for new designers getting access to the big money projects instead of the same GW crew. Everything big in the UK seems to be a Nottingham wankfest.
You do realize most furryposting is ironic, right? It's very purpose is to rile people up.
There's no such thing as ironic posting. When you make an environment suitable for people they will join it and take over. I've seen it happen too many times and it's why you have to gatekeep faggots or expect to be overrun by them.

This is one I got from a previous thread, but the "what I played" guy is Kilgore from Apocalypse Now. He's the guy who we get the "I love the smell of napalm in the morning" quote from. He stormed a Vietcong village because he heard the waves there were great for surfing, and the main character describes him as having the kind of energy where you can tell he'll never get shot through the whole war.
Kinda the literal opposite of suicide-murderer Gomer Pyle.

So what is your character like and what is the campaign like?

This thread mostly focus on RPGs, but wargames and cardgames are also always welcome.

Post about weird tabletop gaming related shit from japan that you found. Images, Raws, possibly translations. Or just talk about your experiences with tabletop games from japan. That works too.

An artillery vehicle with trailers? That´s basic TW stuff.
The vehicle yes, but the actual armament is in TacOps where the artillery rules are.
Woah didnt know that
It's much more reflective of the fluff, especially in those early days, than the shitty TacOps boarding rules which really gimp battle armor.

so how different would HH be if primarchs were female?

As long as you and the Vulk-anon are distracted, I'll stick with my initial answer from the morning:
I'll take Alpharis and Omegan: 2 girls for the price of 1, would never tell/admit to you they are the same person so it's not cheating, since you would actually never know in-universe (unless you get isekai'd with outside knowledge), the smallest of the fem-primarchs, meaning they might actually just be regular sized (or atleast as tall as a man) so no weird extra-large woman shit. Probably into weird kinky shit that you wouldn't even understand

he gets back the power to alter reality to his desire. or the world bends to his will on a time table. it is a fucking abstraction. it has been explained, but you are still too stupid to understand. you should stick to 5e.
If you read the post in bad faith, maybe it sounds like agreement.

Five minute workday martials are shit. Read it again, that's context being established.

Actually doing the design work to give martials a fun "flashy power" system would create fun, punchy systems like Metal Gear Rising, Guilty Gear, Devil May Cry, etc. Or like Book of Nine Swords expanded into an entire game line, at least.
They use juiceboxes, like every other class in that edition.
>Five minute workday
These three words alone prove you to be a bad faith actor. The five minute workday does not exist in 4E, at all. But you've clearly not played it enough to understand that.
Maybe this will answer your question...

Is Anon right to be upset
where do you lie? on the "crunchy and a bit clunky but fun" side or the "im not measuring again, or looking at this damage chart" streamlined but accessible and quicker side?

>Nowadsya people like a faster game better so in a game like 40k or AoS it'd
>faster = better
Set up all of your minis on the table. Roll 1d6. Add +1 if you're Space Marines (loyal or Chaos). Subtract 1 if you're a xenos species of any sort. Add +2 to the roll if you have spent more than $500US on GW products in the last 12 calendar months. High roll wins the game.

There. The fastest and therefore best GW ruleset.
You know what I meant by faster and that's not it.
But I suppose if you want to be dumb, go ahead.
That anon isn't wrong. 40k used to have more rules that required extra work on the player end and those rules tended to be be more difficult for newer and more casual players to handle. They've trimmed a lot of stuff in order to better streamline the game, which in turn has made it easier for players to understand, games go quicker, and have a bit better internal balance IMO, really less randomization on top of randomization. I think now that GW has figured out more about how they want their current game systems to work, they could probably expand what some weapons do and add them back to an extent and have a better balance of both. A big thing they removed from the game was rolling on tables during the game and having to measure a lot. A rule where a gun pushes back minis would be awesome, but a lot of players would find that having to then essentially pause the game to move the minis might be tedious, so instead just giving it a penalty to movement for targets hit might achieve similar crunch effects but reduce extra actions on the player end. Although it wouldn't be as fun as having the gun have an immediate and visual knockback effect
Less crunch is better. This is the 2nd beat game system for "less crunch", since it only involved 1 die roll.

The only system that could be better, would be "list how much money you spent on GW products and compare it with your opponent. Whoever spent more money wins the game."
More crunch is better because I find it more fun. The best 40k's ever been was in the Imperial Armour days.

Really wish Satanists didn't use goats as their iconic sacrifices. They're great animals.
Do any Satanist churches (if they even have those) actually sacrifice animals at all?
Depends on the sect I think, it's very wide ranged because, it's all kinds reverse engineered as a result of people adopting the trappings deliberately in revolt against the tyranny of god and the church, be it real or perceived (I'm trying to be fair as I can)
Most satanists are just atheist larpers, so no. Most actual satanist sacrifice animals in the woods, usually by themselves.

Yeah okay that was easy.
She's already Booba as an elf.

A mecha RPG that strikes a balance between playability, mech customization, and tactical depth. Pilot-side rules are lightweight and narrative-driven, while the mech combat has a crisp tactical system. Features a free character/encounter builder app with support for homebrew mechs and manufacturers.

Cg also has an absolute BS R&D speed
Only if the two experienced ones play him the ball for that
I also wonder when it will dawn on him that the clerical error might not be that much of an error
After all he keeps up with veterans with decades of experience and transhuman supersoldiers... You know, lancers.
For somebody what just wants to grill and put his kids through college he is damn good at murder
It helps that they're all working off the same tech base (Britannian mechs, no one tried to reinvent the wheel except the dirty E*ropeans) and the two premiere R&D teams on the planet are so familiar with each other that any innovations made by the other team are shamelessly stolen as soon as they get a sample of it.
