What do you use to write /tg/? I'm personally fond of my Fisher Space Pen, unless I'm writing something I may have to erase (such as a character sheet), where I'll use a mechanical pencil, usually Bic.

I just like to write stuff
Scientifically speaking physical mediums are inherently better, memory retention is higher and hand-eye coordination is improved over the long term. You're just pissed that you can't write cursive.
Mechanical typewriters, either electronic or fully manual. Something about the tactile response. Finding ribbons is a cunt, though.
Bic mechanical pencils if i think I'll have to erase it later, bic round stic or cyrstal pen if i want to use ink, sometimes crayola colored pencils if I am making a map because I am a child at heart and love to color things. It is more fun if it has green for a thicket or blue for a pond than just a black and white sketch that says "pond" on it.
Uniball Vision. Smooth on the paper and a thick dark line. If I need to do some finelining I'll use a Sakura Micron 02 as well.

I'm not sure I would call it a "game." For something to be a game it has to have defined win and lose states.
I've played a few times. Pretty neat for the novelty. Like many others I would love to build a world with my players and then run a campaign in it, but we've only tried it out for random settings so far

Gneggs: these hideous abominations were birthed by a mad wizard, a saucy maid and a rather fowl foul. These eggs have a fully formed mouth and when tossed at a being of flesh will chew and gnaw on them until they gobble down as much flesh as possible. After a day the egg will hatch using the flesh consumed to form a body.
It is expected of any user of this item to immediately destroy any creature “birthed” from this process, preferably with fire.

Welcome to the Old School Renaissance General!

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

If you are new to the OSR, welcome! Ask us whatever you're curious about, we'll be happy to help you get started on this playstyle.

Need a dungeon to start with? Here's a collection:

I want to publish a LotFP module about exploring the ruins of Atlantis but I’m worried that no one will buy it as LotFP is dead and I should have published it years ago.
Just publish an OSE module about it, lad. Same exact content.
>but I’m worried that no one will buy it as LotFP is dead
I disagree, anon. I think if you put it as 'Designed for LOTFP but compatible with any b/x style game' (or something of that ilk) it shouldn't have any issues being found. Of course, provided it's actually a fun read / advertised in any way. LOTFP still has a decent following, but it seems like most just prefer to have old school compatibility listed to fit their preferred system.
>LotFP is dead
It is?!? What happened?
So people might be ok with the world-wrecking doomsday device at the heart of Atlantis which will destroy the coherence of any setting?

I want to hear you, the people of /tg. In any of your games, who has been the biggest fucking degenerate you have ever witnessed?

>you don't have to max out a skill to still be pretty good at it.
You drastically overestimate my luck good sir. I have gone multiple games in a row without rolling over a ten. Hell, in the Dark Heresy game I run there wasn’t a single NPC or enemy that managed to roll better than a 73 for the first three sessions. My luck’s better with cards, but the one savage worlds game I stumbled across imploded long before play actually happened
This example is more depressing than anything. I played in a couple games way back in the day with a group that was half co-workers and half their friends. I was the new guy there. We played Exalted, some Modern setting action game, and some 3rd Edition.

There is one quiet, skinny white dude who was always playing as Hotsuma from the Shinobi PS2 game. No matter the setting, no matter the party balance, no matter what he was just playing as that goddamn ninja. Same appearance, backstory, weapons, everything. He would use the box art as his character portrait, even.

I don't know if the dude was just completely obsessed with that game, or if he lacked any sort of imagination at all. The DM allowed it so the other players just rolled with it I guess.

Honestly? Myself. I'm too much of a socially stunted sperg to handle any group activity
I play tabletop games as close to wargames as one gets, rarely engaging with the plot, rarely building relationships with my fellow players. Just looking for that next round of combat.

I'm the asshole who wants to fight then gets pissy when monsters use cover, retreat or act any better then skyrim npcs rushing me. I complain about control spells.

I have strong ideas about how NPCs should act. Most should cap at level 5 and in any system nobody should be beyond my power to end at the end of a game. I can't handle being flexed on by unimpressed randoms.

I come to games, gm's and shared setting servers dragging homebrew behind me. I've never made a "simple" character that wasn't an abrasive war pig.

In spite of all this I'm the clown who ghosts a group mid-game when I think somebody doesn't like me.
I have a bad tendency to do this because I like boardgames and used to play in TCG tournies, so minmaxing is in my system. To avoid this I always make sure to deliberatly take some character choises that are the opposite of optimal but fit the character. Like when we played 3.5 and my Harrier (Iron Hero module classes, essentially a dex fag deluxe fighter) used those level up stat increases to raise his charisma because he was a smug fucker that liked to talk alot and did lots of rolls on bluff and diplomacy.
Yeah bro 5e is cursed famalam, if you want to be safe from this bullshit and be guaranteed a group of nice people you should play FATAL.

You'd want that blister for the CrabBot, anyway.

You might, but since that'd require buying a whole support pack to use a quarter of it it wouldn't be a particularly good recommendation.

PMC's are just the evolution. It might not be adventurism from the golden age, but the world turns, you never know. All it takes is a failed state and a few rich white men to fund the adventure.

>Band of the Falcon
>good two-shoes
>Mercs had close to no fucking training
I can't tell if you're stupid or trolling. Mercenaries, like the Landsknecht companies and Swiss pikemen, were as effective and sought after as they were because they were as well trained as they were. Some companies would take anyone who could walk between 2 pikes on their own, but they made sure to train them before they went into battle with them.

>mercs went out of fashion the moment conscription became a thing
Is that why a quarter of the British military in the Americas during the revolutionary war were mercenaries?

Seems like a strange thing to not include.
I wonder what creature in the bestiary has the highest Str-to-size ratio. I know that size inherently goes down with size in the creature creation, but surely there's some pipsqueak out there with an absurdly high Str score, right?
It seems like the kind of pointless detail they don't need to specify in a game trying to effectively use its rules space for things that matter. Is there a situation you're encountering where this is somehow a problem?
green man is medium and has 40 str but hes cr 26 so that might be cheating
Yeah he's basically the equivalent of a demigod so I'm not sure how much that counts.

>What is Epic ?

Epic is the original Warhammer 40k: Apocalypse, using 6mm miniatures so the game is actually playable. Released in the 90s to build upon Adeptus Titanicus success, the game was rebooted into 3 versions before Games Workshop officially stopped any support in 2013.
These 3 reboots were all wildly differents from each others, but they all stayed alive despite lack of official support and grew up into their own community supported thing:

-Net Epic, ( aka Epic 2nd edition ):
The grogest one; be it by age, crunch and fluff. Here each player pick-up whole company and detachment cards to make up their armies and battle each other by throwing bucketload of dices while arguing rules and counter-rules.
Army builder: https://netepic.org/army-books/

-Epic 40k ( aka Epic 3rd edition ):
The most noob friendly. GW pulled out a 180° on this one and Epic was streamlined to the core. The large abstraction level allow you to focus primarily on out-manoeuvering your opponent, but make it feels un-WH40k-ish.
Army builder: https://ijw.on-rev.com/armyforge_temp/index_e40k.html

-Epic: Armageddon ( aka Epic 4th edition ):
Games Workshop's tentative to fix the commercial flop that was Epic 40k. Stricking a good balance between the two previous edition, this last iteration of the game remains the most popular and played reboot. Yearly tournaments all other the civilized world.

What would that intermingling process look like? Just that the defender can call intermingled on the attackers?
Yeah exactly. You just expand the intermingling rule so it can be declared by the countercharge as well. In practice that wouldn't happen often (you don't generally WANT to eat a multi-charge) but there defender could use it drag in vulnerable supporting formations or would-be CC blockers.
2nd edition had simpler core rules than Armageddon.
That gets in to the aforementioned "ground up rebuild" territory though.
If I wanted to create a Farsight Enclaves list, what would it look like?

Going by lore, advanced tech from the Empire does tend to fall off the back of a truck for them, but it's at a premium. They have a stronger emphasis on Crisis Suits, infantry, and armor. Also, all their Ethereals are dead, and every infantryman and suit pilot has taken the bonding ritual.

Would they have some of the choices from the Vior'la list (Farsight is from Vior'la) like Fireblades? Bonding Knife Ritual built into the cost of Fire Warrior Cadres and all suit Cadres and Groups? Would they lose out on advanced tech and larger suits like Tetras and Riptides, and make up for it with variants of regular units like Barracuda armed with different forward and wing guns? Do they still get Kroot?

>complaining about getting a harem of pretty girls and a cute femboy.
One of my DMs threw this at the party as a final boss for one of the mini-campaigns, it was really fun.

Granted, they also had a weird rule where if you got it prone it died instantly, so that was kinda dumb. Did make for a cool moment where my monk, when faced with the choice of doing the job he was sent to do or helping his friends, decided to trick his squad into escaping before coming back, making a big statement about "fighting for my friends", and then critting it and knocking it prone
>encouraging them to flee
It wont work. Dont give them the boss until you want them to fight the boss. Trust me.
Well yeah mechanically. I was talking long term roleplaying story arc. It really depends on the DM.

God this is so much clearer then what I’ve been dredging through in the other books. Would you ever consider taking out the use of faggot in the book? Not to sound like an over sensitive bitch, it’s just that I’ve been wanting to show this to my players, but some of them are are gay so it’s kinda a barrier.
