>how were things in the middle ages?

I am from the middle ages.

There was a lot of shit on the roads from all the horses.

Life was much harder than now, but in many ways more free.

We didn't think of ourselves as being in "the middle ages". To us, this was the height of modernity.
Also watch:

Imagine a world where you don't have washing machines, electricity, TV, or computers for starters. Then imagine one where 80% of the world's population are engaged in farming to keep itself and the rest of the 20% from starving. Then imagine one where there were fuckton of archaic laws and local customs, but very few and backwards ways to enforce them. Imagine that people only learn to write from the church for battling legal disputes. Imagine if prisons (privately-run and paid by the prisoners) were meant to keep people from running away from standing up to trial rather than as a form of punishment. Imagine one where the government is weak and fragmented and has difficulty to even tax people efficiently, let alone to enforce his will on the local lord. Imagine the church as one of the most powerful, influential and richest institution around, patron of science, and of the arts because nobles pay entire monasteries to collectively pray in their name to save their souls from damnation because otherwise they would have to pray themselves for thousands of years for forgiveness.
>prisons were just to await trial and punishment
they should bring this back desu, prison as a punishment is one of the most horrendously fucking stupid ideas ever.

it only makes sense if you've got like a political dissenter and they'd be martyred if you killed them and they'd raise an army if you exiled them: so yeah in that case it make sense to lock them up forever.

but just massively incarcerating petty criminals instead of just punishing them somehow and being done with it... its kind of mind boggling how we got to this point.

like take some middle of the road crime. Would you rather spend a few months in prison or just get whipped X number of times or put in the stocks for a day.

Hustle and Bustle Edition

>What is Genesys?
Released in November 2017, Genesys is a pen-and-paper generic RPG system and toolkit by Fantasy Flight Games, using a refined version of the system presented by their Star Wars RPGs (Edge of the Empire, Age of Rebellion, Force and Destiny). Its central mechanic is the Narrative Dice System, using pools made of specialized dice to create narrative results. The intention is for the system to be a highly flexible narrative system, adaptable to most any conceivable setting and premise.

>Asmodee (FFG's parent company) has folded all future RPG development - including Genesys - into a company called Edge Entertainment, now known as EDGE Studio
>The next source book - Keyforge: Secrets of the Crucible - is revealed and will launch in Q2 2020
>Mutant Invasion!, an additional card pack tantamount to a splatbook for the upcoming Keyforge release, will also be available soon

I guess so. It's more that even if Schultz has a good Cool score the wrist gun still gives him a considerable advantage besides staying calm and getting ready to shoot. I'm not sure if any other weapon mods in any rulebooks just straight up give you a talent when you attach the mod which is stopping me from just slapping Quick Draw onto it.
Also that RAW quick draw is just swapping weapons as an incidental which I'm not sure is appropriate thematically for how the weapon functions which is catching people by surprise.
Catching people by surprise is entirely the point of the Quick Strike talent though. It may not be what you're after, but DHAnon has a weapon attachment called Shortened Barrel.
>Use with: Any Ranged (Light) weapon
>Modifiers: Your character may draw this weapon as an incidental rather than as a maneuver, the range of the weapon changes to short.
So the weapon gains one benefit of the Quick Draw talent, but not the Prepare reduction. If a character has quick strike ontop of that I'd say they're all kitted out to start surprise combats by shooting people in the gut.

Whoops I completely missed the part where you mentioned quick strike somehow. I think I'll go with the incidental draw as a benefit then.
Sounds good my man. Pistols can still be used in melee and they'll likely do more damage than someone who isn't built for melee, so there's still that "aha, now I have a gun!" moment that you'd get a derringer for.

If you mean without pellets hitting the blade, then most probably, yes. There's about 8 or 9 inches of blade after the barrels, that's not a lot of time for the shot to break up. Look at the slow motion shot at 3:10
What could be some good ideas for Vaults? Also were there actually any that weren't experiments?
Some where control and some where experiments. In the recent fallout game, the vault dweller came out of a control group that had the brightest nerds that were sent off to rebuild civilisation 25 years after the bomb fell.
Would it be possible to have a Vault on the moon?

Why not give Arakkis to a lesser noble house, thereby avoiding the problem of a powerful house having enough power to overthrow him?

For an example of how high stakes 4 can get -

Both the Catholic Church and Orthodox Church worked together for a very long time to destroy all serious promotion of a very popular alternative interpretation of the story of Jesus Washing the Feet.

Due to a misunderstanding involving Roman euphemisms, principally that the Roman's often referred to the Dick as the Foot in polite conversation, there existed a very credible and very thorough alternative understanding that the story was actual erotic nature - that Jesus out of the kindness of his heart sucked dick so good that he converted people. This was used for the basis of several prominent and problematic sexual cults over the course of history.

Obviously the sex negative Catholics and Orthodox believers saw that as somewhat troubling and put a lot of joint effort in to correcting the understanding of that passage. Most historical sources say the Romans had the wrong of it entirely - but those sources were mostly preserved by Christian scholars. Funny isn't it?
>preserved by christian scholars

Were not the Romans Christian, near the end?

Not Holy.
Not Roman.
Not an Empire.
So instead of any grasp of history you have this pathological need to vomit forth memes in a desperate attempt to feel a sense of fitting in and belonging. Don't worry, most afflicted simply grow out of it in their twenties.

All of these, because we're playing GURPS and all of these are parts of handling it.

Just be yourself dude.

Roleplay but instant fail if it isn't convincing in the slightest, instant success if it's pretty convincing and social skill vs reaction if it's so-so.

In the interest of hosting quick-paced, single-session games in the 4chan boards without dice, has /tg/ made any systems over the years that use post numbers to determine rolls? Something that takes the last, maybe second to last numbers, dubs, with skill modifiers adding or subtracting to the result?
There was this one guy who made a quick and dirty skeleton for a system involving tanks in deserts a few days ago. Maybe he can think of something?
You'll get shut down for running a quest, because the mods consider actually playing tabletop games to be against the rules.
Why? That's fucking gay.
It depends on the board. Aside from /qst/ itself, /bant/ once had a healthy pesudo-traditional games community that played stuff like RISK and a simple RPG that used a script to convert posts into stats.
Whiny faggots gonna whine at them until they do something. It's just /tg/ that gets hit with this, even though /tg/ is one of the few boards with actual dice abilities.

Playing RPGs is nice and all but let's be real- maybe like 10% of this board actually plays. With that in mind, let's talk about some games that are fun to read more than they are to play. Maybe there's some shitty mechanics, maybe the setting doesn't lend itself well to gameplay, but either way it's fun to actually just read the book.

Probably my favorite RPG to read instead of play is Wraith the Oblivion. Besides roping people into OWoD being hard, the shadow mechanic and harrowings means that running a game is just going to be hell for players. But at the same time it probably has my favorite WoD setting, and some super edgy lore.

Warhammer Fantasy. Cyberpunk 2020. Earth Dawn.

this is random as fuck but, for the one and a half anons that politely responded to my Ashes shilling in the last thread, miniature market just put a bunch of that stuff up on clearance if you're interested. And they've still got the core box for $25.

A number of the ones on sale are the more complicated later sets and/or require the extra dice types from the big box expansions, but the Jericho path of assassins deck is an excellent first buy after the starter. That's the colorless / artifact commander, so her pre-con deck has a lot of useful stuff that can be used by decks in any color combo.
>other than the big three
I'm only knowledgeable about magic and yugioh, is there something wrong with pokemon? I'm not in love with the aesthetics of pokemon but is there anything wrong with the actual game?
Pokemon has weird powercreep. Inflated HP. Old cards are really weak.
Two years ago power was trending upwards, but more in “We figured out a better way to utilize cards,” and “this card has more options,” ways. And mostly with LRIG and Arts. Looking over recent cards, it looks similar to cards from then.
Sets 1 through 4 were too focused on stasis and temp decks. Aggro was absolute shit. Set 4 is notoriously shit.

Set 5 and 6 were the game at it's absolute best. Broly and Yamcha were the saviors the game needed.

Set 7, the final Panini set, is hard to judge. It's not terrible, but clearly made with gouging the consumer and banning the Set 1 Masteries in mind.

Fan Z has been a mixed bag. Sets shrunk to just give out good cards, MPs and in every third set Masteries, but has had it's far share of really broken cards. More than a few have been altered after the community did better playtesting than the devs.

Hello people, been a while since I lurked this general but it's always a pleasure to reach it back.

Is there an in-game rule specifying how much time it takes to resupply a mech weapons ammo?
I mean if I say a scenario has some kind of small factory or hangar, and defending forces rotate so they can spam AC20 and LRM20 shots more, how many turns would it take?
Lastly I fell in love with Inferno SRMs (and I'm kind of disappointed how they work in the recent BT videogame which I love), in fact I think it's kind of weird there's no Dragon variant with Inferno SRMs instead of the LRM
Page 186 of strategic operations pdf. This book also includes rules for hot loading LRMs to remove the minimum range but at some disadvantages like high chance of explosion.
>People suck Vic Milan's dick all day long in here
>Except when he writes DA novels they've never read like Rending of Falcons
>in fact I think it's kind of weird there's no Dragon variant with Inferno SRMs instead of the LRM
The Grand Dragon 9KC mounts an MML-5 allowing for happy fun inferno time. But in introtech when you want a Dragon but close range the Wolverine 6K is the answer. 6K even carries two tons of SRM 6 ammo so you can bring both inferno and standard ammo.

>This book also includes rules for hot loading LRMs
That's TacOps.
>the Wolverine 6K is the answer
Yes, but you know
dragon "breathing" fire is kind of nicer
