DoK are pricey
SCE probably cheapest, just so easy to collect
I'd love some not-Ushabti.
Storm of Sigmar was great. The Blood Warriors were a really cheap way to make yourself some Chaos Warrior conversions.
And as >>68020882 pointed out, the most expensive army to collect is DoK. Or at least it was until Kharadron Overlords got a blanket price drop meaning you need tons and tons of their very pricey kits if you want a full army.
again though, why would we get the line 'perhaps I decieve myself, there is some joy in this', why would the character even be reluctant to collect 'the tithe'. There are no undead except Settra who might do so, It's not conclusive and sure he could be new and it all fits his lore, but it feels like GW is presenting him as someone we already know.

Hey everyone, I've decided that the old Yog Sothothery threads needed a bit of sprucing up, and were missing a few files. I've created a mega for the purposes of revitalizing the threads. As of this writing, a little over 900 files are still in the process of being uploaded.

That being said, what do you figure should be in the OPs of threads to come?

This a good example. Also in CoC you can start with mythos knowledge but not be a beliver. You can read about Ghouls in the Necronomicon but just think it's folklore. But once you see a Ghoul it proves all the OTHER things in the book. Magic, Outer Gods, Azathoth they are all real!

It's because Goliaths lose a massive amount of their strengths in 3d maps.

They're strong in Zone mortalis but that's basically a different game.
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.

You're conflating "where powers come from" with "individual hero origins," and thus talking about something entirely different. Superman struggling with his history as the last son of Krypton has nothing to do with the larger question of "why do superheroes exist in the DC Universe?"

The closest I can think of comics actively telling stories about where powers in the general sense come from is Marvel's mutant gene and stories about that, but mutants exist right alongside Spider-Man, Thor, Iron Man and every other conceivable origin. And even with mutants, the "origin of mutations" has always only been a plot device. First it was handwaved as "children of the atomic age," and now they have guys like Apocalypse "the first mutant," and that weird John Byrne story where the first mutant was the second single-celled organism, and I'm sure its all quite convoluted and stupid by now. Which is why nobody really worries about "where do mutants come from."
Maybe we can get a series of superteams? A sort of new Statesmen project!
i actuall remeber that the old thread had superteams. i forgot who my super was with.
but now that i have 2 i could make a crimefighting duo
>You're conflating "where powers come from" with "individual hero origins,"
They're inextricably linked.
Superman has superpowers because he's a kryptonian. How the hell would you do an origin without mentioning the source of their powers? It's impossible for that source to be irrelevant to hoe they came to be.
Dude, you're not getting it. There's saying "Superman has superpowers because he's a Kryptonian." and then there's saying "All superhumans in this setting can trace their origins back to the destruction of Krypton," like Smallville did. So in Smallville, essentially all superhumans are either:
>Kryptonians (or other alien species)
>Technology developed by Kryptonites (Brainiac)
>Humans exposed to Kryptonite
>Humans exposed to technology based on Kryptonite
>Humans powered by technology based on Kryptonite
>Humans powered by training and mundane technology
>Human-like aliens from the distant future (Legionnaires)

That's fine for a certain type of supers game, where the triggering event is recent, created the PCs and all the villains, and is of central relevance to the campaign...but if you're creating a setting for a more generic supers campaign, where players are essentially "the Justice League" or "the Avengers," then coming up with a unified explanation for why superpowers exist in general is just sort of pointless.

A unified theory of superpowers that explains everything from mutants to aliens to ancient gods to sorcerers to genius inventors to hyper-trained detectives is typically going to be pointless. Like in Champions, superpowers exist because the world goes through periods of waxing and waning levels of magic, and currently magic levels are very high, and this manifests as genius inventors being able to make super-tech power armor whose abilities are completely unaffected by anti-magic. Which is an explanation that is ultimately such a vague handwave that it defeats its own purpose. It exists simply to shut up people who insist on an explanation for how human beings can throw bolts of lightning and travel through time.

It's more important to worry about the conflicts that will drive your stories than inventing the perfect handwave to explain why someone who gets bit by a radioactive spider gets superpowers and not blood poisoning.

I hope they refined it into something great. I did not like the look of it during the kickstarter phase so I passed, but I love Too Many Bones and know it changed a lot since it's kickstarter phase.

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.

Contributed to the death of hundreds of homeless people by convincing their would-be leader to help kill the reigning king of the bums. Would-be leader softened up the hoboking enough for our student hero team to sweep in and clean him up.
Sounds cool. I like the seriousness of your setting. My current parties are way to cuddly for anything so serious to ever happen. I’m usually the one making the questionable pacts and demon deals to the point people just assume it’s what I always do.

Ho boy am I looking forward to throw my upcoming party into that hornet’s nest of moral ambiguity.
The other PC's still think my character regrets what happened, he pretend to be upset about it to their face because it's expected of him, but is completely ambivalent to what happens to the assets after the completion of the mission.
Repeatedly shouted "KNIFE-EAR!" in a wood elf commune. Even the non-elves didn't appreciate my chill racism.
In character?
Dismantling sentient robots to prove they aren't alive. They are, but he won't accept that.

The local lord's army boasts thousands of men-at-arms in full harness and experienced scouts and trackers. Each is a battle-tested veteran of years of war.

What makes your party of "adventurers" so arrogant as to think themselves more capable of defending the fief than even a diminutive fraction of these forces? A "dungeon," you say? The local lord can send a score of these loyal men, a mere drop in the pond, and they will brute force this "dungeon" with ease. Many are trained to battle on foot.

not probably

a standing army is supposed to work as part of a greater group working in coordination on open battle

Clan Wolverine deserves to be ilClan. Or Ghost Bear since they're the least retarded which admittedly isn't saying much.
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.

How come we don't see more aliens that use magic? I mean, if magic exists in a setting with intelligent extraterrestrials, wouldn't the aforementioned alien races use it? It'd probably help a lot with stuff like artificial gravity and FTL, right?

Cool, that seems a good way to give the player's a wide choice of armaments while still letting the GM veto bringing a Zanbato along to attend someone's wedding. I appreciate the help, is there any other tips you would give to a newcomer on running their games?

I'm very interested in seeing how Paths of Waves turns out. With luck, we'll get some more schools to allow Rise from Dust characters access to all archetypes. I think a merchant style Artisan could be really cool.

The social mores of Rokugan aren't there to trap players, they're to challenge characters. If your players don't know what the proper protocol for a given situation is and their character would, fucking tell them.
Too many newbie GMs became That GM and turned away a lot of potential players over the history of this game thinking that players not knowing proper etiquette was their chance to "GOTCHA" them.
