I mean you're basically saying, "I don't understand why people think Goliath are weak. We're playing the maps that favor them the most and they seem fine!"
Oh dude, check out that box of krispy kreme!
I just want my group to have fun and stop losing horribly.
Post game ritual, having a psyker, being restricted to outlaw only. All of these mean a new player has a lot more to think about than when playing another gang.
You can swarm opponents in certain games but most scenarios restrict the number of fighters so if you start with 15 you could end up with 7 mooks to play rather than useful champs or your leader.
In all the cult is a fun gang, if you want to play them then go nuts and pray to Tzeentch for good spawn rolls.
What does it cost getting into Necromunda? What are the essentials? Thanks for spoon feeding me.

Eversors are very elegant and graceful creatures, their dance of blood-spray and viscera would put a Harlequin to shame.
They are literally non-Khornate berzerkers though. Far from accurate and precise. Otherwise Vindicare would be using them.
You're both wrong.

Eversors are GOOD INFILTRATORS...when they are getting into position.

Then they turn on Indestructible on their headphones, crank up the combat-drugs and go completely apeshit on a room full of heretics once everyone they're supposed to kill is there.

I'd say 14/14 but it really depends on what you're wanting your sorcerer to do

Are you running it out of a book, or designing it yourself?

Is it just me or has design quality of Games workshop been shit in the last 8 years? Is the only sculpting/design talent in the forgeworld studio (With some exceptions) because gamesworkshop models look ugly and not in the cool military ugly but in the it's so ugly and doesn't look cool sense. All imperial flyers made by GW look like trash designed by a person who never saw an aircraft or sci fi design.

I'm sure this thread has been made before but does anyone have an opinion on Wasteland Warfare for a non-miniature group of roleplayers. I would prefer it the game had more of a focus on the original games as opposed to 3 and 4 but beggars can't be choosers. The last Fallout tabletop I tried to run used a straight one for one system from the original games and slowed things down a lot. If it's any consolation, I liked Mopideus Star Trek which uses the same system.

>Sandy Shores
This city was once called Shady Sands but its name
changed after it became the capital city of the New
California Republic. It is the largest city in the
Republic and one of the largest cities in the entire
Wasteland. It is a large farming community that
grows crops and tends to large herds of Brahmin.

I do know the Shady Sands location was called NCR in Fallout 2, but I never heard of Sandy Shores.

Formless Blue, an ancient abomination that periodically ruins a stretch of land when it arises from the ocean's depths. It's huge and terrifying and regarded as a fact of life. Basically a mix of Cthulhu, Godzilla, FFX's Sin, and Worm's Endbringers.
Cities just end up destroyed when it passes through every few years. It's meant to be more of a living natural disaster than anything, but it is unquestionably the strongest being, considering it has devoured the few paragons who made the terrible decision of trying to stop the occasional calamity and not just getting out of its way. Anyone sane when they hear "Formless Blue has landed and is coming this way" will pack their shit and take a vacation for the next two weeks, then see if there's anything to rebuild afterwards.

Not quite "setting" villain under technicality, but the primary campaign villain in the campaign I'm in is the Sister to the King of Demons, who was using puppet Kings in his absence to keep the Realm of Demons under her thumb while she worked on plans to free her brother from bondage and return him to power. Said plans involved manipulating the PCs into doing her dirty work in efforts to try and stop her, usually (but not always) coming out ever slightly ahead thanks to her careful planning and manipulations. Finally accomplished her goal a short while ago, and is currently in the process of starting up a civil war against her nephew, the Prince of Demons, who'd taken the throne and exiled her for her rampant manipulations, corruption, and attempts to bend the throne to her will.

the kings (both races are way too expnsive) gonna get them anyway.

Also am I right in saying that the kings are based on the ringbearers?

I now the king of men are modelled on the ones that appear in the opening flashback of the first movie.

also getting me some classic orcs, almost recently sold a load of metal mordor uruk hai and orc characters then the guy tried to lowball em when he was already getting a massive deal so I just said no...kinda happy I did now.
yes the kings are the ring bearers. the one drawing his sword is meant to be the witch king, paralelling the wraith model
Fuck it, I'm getting 2 of them now.
No proper waac lists, just look at the lists that win the international tournaments. Kylie and Jay are probs the best players in the world atm. Its more about your use of might and strategies.

In WHFB or 40k people tend to go for 1500-2000pts, but I'm getting the sense that number may be lower for LotR stuff.

Post what you've got, maybe you're close but just need to tune it
4e to 5e spell conversion anon here. I just got done uploading all of the spells from the PHBs 1 and 2, as well as all of the Swordmage spells from the FRPG. I still need to give each spell its own individual header and mark each with its source of origin, but it's late and I have to crash for the day. Anons are encouraged to go through the doc and leave behind any comments on either possible ways to convert the spells present to 5e or just to point out the ones that have been already placed into 5e.


Once I Header and Source all of the spells there... it'll be the Dark Pact Warlock spells from FRPG, and then on to Arcane Power. Then the Heroes of X spells... do I need to do the Fallen Lands and Forgotten Kingdoms?

After that, finally, it'll be all the Dragon magazine spells.
This is really stupid criticism honestly.

>A good idea but if you're ending up max dex then Studded Leather is still the best option though until then the breastplate is going to be king.
Why in the hell would you bother to max dex when you can sneak attack with strength, You can get medium armor master and get 18 AC from half plate. This is clearly a strength rogue why would taking two ASI to a stat that isn't even the subclasses bread and butter make it redundant?

>While I get the point, the fact finesse weapon can still use STR and Dex means there is no reason to take any weapon
The class has 3 starting abilities, one of them can be fluff, allows a brutish rogue to use a morningstar instead of a rapier. It's great

>Being able to shove as a bonus action is a VERY strong move from a Rogue since it lets them knock a creature prone so they can generate their Sneak Attacks by themselves.
considering shield master gives you that capability as it is I don't think it's too bad, however, It's a little over tuned, I'd say the person must attack first to be able to shove or grapple as a bonus action

>The effect isn't that bad until you realize the hilarity of being able to sneak attack with lances (1d12) while mounted.
Correct, he should add an exception for special weapons.

This was my first though, but I don't think it would work because I need to figure out what happens when you get hit while still standing. Automatic death saving throw failure like normal?

Death’s Door: You don’t automatically fall unconscious when you hit 0 hit points, instead you make an immediate death saving throw. Beyond that, you make death saving throws at the beginning of your turn and when you take damage, as normal.
If you fail a death saving throw, you fall unconscious.
Issue here is you're trying to have it both ways.
If you're going to go full death's door, don't pussy out with unconscious rules.

My attempt:
>Death's Door: when you hit 0hp you have the Death's Door condition. You do not fall unconscious and may take actions as normal.
>While you have this condition you make a death saving throw whenever you take damage. If at any point while you have the condition you fail 3 death saving throws, you are dead. These reset as normal if you lose the death's door condition (by gaining HP).
>Successful death saving throws are no longer recorded, as you do not stabalise until after combat ends.

Or if you wanna go full Darkest Dungeon
>Death saving throws now add your constitution modifier.
>Death saving throw DC is now the greater of: 10 or half of the damage taken.
>Failing a death save kills your character.

I once played a noble swordsman whose religion was basically a modified Buddhism mixed with Misotheism. It was a fairly militant sect, and most of it believed that you earn salvation (a sort of nirvana) via karmic justice and by detaching yourself from all gods, spiritually and mentally.

It was rather fun since the party had a traditional paladin and a cleric in it, so my character had to go through some mental loops to justify working with them.
If divine spell casters exist in the setting then being a true Atheist would be akin to being a flat earther in our world. You can literally see the existence of the divine.

Someone could choose to not worship any of the gods or be Agnostic, open to the concept of them but not sold on any particular one.

First impressions are pretty high. One group even said it was a kind of game that could be a life game like chess or go, where that is the game you and a few people just game over and over again because the strategy is so varied but simple to make it highly replayable.

If they ever do a proper redo of TW, instead of just reprinting the current book with minor fixes, I hope they'd at least move all the ASF rules in the ASF chapter, rather than splitting them between that and the standard chapter for moving and shooting. Having to jump between chapters separated by over 100 pages to read the rules is a pain in the ass.

It will either be Bears or Falcons. The Wolves are just around to get Worfed since they were badass for like two years, one hundred years ago and that has stuck in the minds of the fanbase and writers.

In universe would it make sense to follow this chart for building mechs?
The MoC is literally and figuratively Pussy Rules, anon. In all matters of state, life, and entertainment.
Thanks for the AAR!

I would say partially yes, but the in universe design teams have to take in account what the politicians and military want, what engines and weapons are available and the level of manufacturing standards that are available. So not always you get mechs that are tonnage and speed optimized.
