A Russian can accumulate and use knowladge at a much faster pace then any westerner. this linked with the idominable Russian spirit and in born ingeniuity made Russians the best tank soldiers in WWII.
Honestly, Anon, you don't know what you're talking about. I hate WotC, but magic is bigger than it has ever been even in the midst of a pandemic. Every set sells out. Every new item or special sparkly thing they do people go bananas for. WotC was just turned into it's own separate division at Hasbro because of how successful it has been in the last 5 years. Magic has never been more successful than in recent history. Yes, much to the chagrin of many an old grognard. It is what it is.
It is heartbreaking to see such nice paintwork and an inspired conversion ruined by fucky head and arm poses
Anon please it hurts
A whole army still doesnt look quite right cause 3rd party models aren’t really heroic scale but as long as its clear what everything is its fine

3D printing is okay, i hate the people who send money to our enemies the russians and chinks. But if you’re willing to spend the time and effort to 3d print an army thats fine as long as you’re not flaunting it in the store

Why does it seem like so many people, both DM's and players, are against doing an evil campaign? I've yet to meet anyone at my local shop or through friends that would entertain the idea. Hell most say before even being asked that they wouldn't run or play in one. Are people just incapable of separating the game from real life? What's the deal?

You may as well just be good aligned in that case. It's also a lot less compelling, you can't really give a villainous PC much nuance if they're full on self serving evil. If they're motivated by something outside themselves the same story could work with good PCs and will probably work more easily.

Evil campaigns just tend to be shallow power fantasies pushed by people who want a license to be dickneads to NPCs without any consequences.

Something like Nox from wakfu could work, the well intentioned but deluded villain? Again though, the reluctant adventurer trope works just as well for a pair of bards raising money for an orphanage.

Maybe the better qudstion is: Why do you want to play an evil campaign? What do you think it will have over a good one?
>Why does it seem like so many people, both DM's and players, are against doing an evil campaign?
Because these nearly always end with bullshit, betrayal, and hurt feelings all before even the 4th session. And those sessions that are played out will be mentally, physically, and emotionally exhausting ordeals that will suck all joy and enthusiasm for the hobby.

Because they are almost always rooted in some player’s deep-seeded need to fulfill some power fantasy and think having an “evil” sticker on their character excuses all their actions from consequences, when really it doesn’t.

There are exceptions, I even GM’d one such game. But on the whole they really are horrible and short lived experiences that only sound good on paper, and not in practice.

You know that I speak the truth, but since it’s not what you want to hear you will likely dismiss and disregard my response. But doing so will not change the outcome.
>You can be as evil as you like!
>No, you cant be evil to each other, because that would be too evil!
Make your mind up mate.
Because being evil involves weilding the power you have for your own enjoyment and taking pleasure at the misery you cause. Those types of people, unless they weild ultimate power (which never happens in level based roleplaying games), rarely live for long because they usually end up facing the consequences of their actions.
The most fun Evil character I played was Neutral Evil. He was just a giant schoolyard bully, and an ENORMOUS prat. He was also basically unstoppable.
At one point I broke a man's hands, and told him that I'd let him escape his hanging if he just untied his noose. Later, I told a mother that I'd let her kids live if she jumped me and overpowered me. I also offered a farmboy 'one free shot' at me, when I had Stoneskin on.

The fun part was insisting, like a complete bell-end, that he'd given them a chance. They just didn't WANT it enough.

>that time they used lasguns to boil a dreadnought
>that time guardsmen take out marines
Hes bad at setting power-levels, but taken by themselves his books are relatively entertaining.
>All things considered this still places him head and shoulders above pretty much all other BL writers.
That's were you're wrong. "Fun" stories are not fun if they don't follow the rules of the universe they are set in. You might shill for him, sure, don't change a fact that every single one if his books in HH became an instant meme (not in a good way), that his dumb side plots and revelations have ruined the series. He's incapable of conforming to lore which is a fucking point if being a writer in X franchise and the only good books he did are set in a obscure and niche enviroment that doesn't harm 30k/40k in general.
I don't think the dreadnought thing is that egregious, actually. It burst out the building the guard were using as a command, and was presented as a serious threat to all of them and the living saint that was present. The only reason it didn't kill everyone there is because someone got a lucky hit on the sarcophagus with a power sword. It definitely wasn't treated like most opponents that are there to be stomped.
>got a lucky hit on the sarcophagus with a power sword
If youre going by setting power levels, that should do nothing. Dreadnoughts are fucking durable, theyre a marine vehicle.

Power swords arent like lightsabers you know.

in a setting where gods demonstrably exist it's not hard
All barbarian/something multiclass party. The characters are all relgious tribalists, so only their own specific tribe is *worthy* enough to follow their specific patron god. If they tried to convince someone else to follow their god they would be *insulting* their god, and also their own people.
They don't even know the meaning of the word 'conversion'.
Literally. Because they are all illiterate.
Especially the party healer (barbarian/favoured soul), she's ultra-illiterate, in that she thinks written words are evil spirits.
They don't care

None of it came up until it turned out we have a (small) sun god on speed dial, then there was a short crisis of faith and a paladin became a blackguard in disgust.

• Provide good, detailed references (pictures are better than verbal descriptions), so the artists know what you're looking for.
• If you have a WIP quote the Anchor Post, and attach the WIP so your Drawfag can find you.
• Do not reply to other deliveries with a request that the artist fill your request next, this is called 'piggybacking'.
• Do not make multiple requests in the same thread and do not serially request multiple characters after a delivery. Suggesting several concepts for artists to choose from counts as making multiple requests.
• If you're unsatisfied with your completed request, please wait at least one week before you re-request. If someone follows this rule, don't waste posts by complaining about it.
• Don't critique others' requests. If you don't like it, don't draw it.
• Ignore the bait for they don't deserve (You)'s
• Stay on topic

Its been theorized that both sides of the planet might actually not be as fucked as we think, and that the planetary jet stream would draw the heated air to the cold areas and vice versa, leading to the planet possibly being habitable all around

There would at least be lobster-like stretches of ocean, even with a slow rotation rate of 36 days.
Reminds me of a theory too that, presuming sufficient water on the surface, you could end up with constant, storming cloud cover on the day side. While not pleasant, it moves the bright half much closer to habitable.

how can you reasonably justify fantasy humans looking like irl humans?
how is divination/fortune telling depicted in irl religious/mythological texts?
I wanna include diviners in my setting but I'm not sure how accurate they should be, or how the prediction even works, in a general sense. I'm assuming no explicit confirmation, but something more related to intuition and probability analysis (i.e. drawing a card multiple times in a row).
how would you handle this? what level of probability would be enough to serve as a guarantee that a prediction will happen, and how vague would those predictions be?
>how can you reasonably justify fantasy humans looking like irl humans?
Because no one wants to play something called a human that looks entirely different than one.
Maybe because the church's organisation is based on a polytheistic societies governmental organisation?
more like it's just convenient and no one gives a shit

Cyberpunk Police Edition

GURPS is a modular, adaptable system, capable of running a wide range of characters, settings, and play styles with level of detail varying from lightweight to completely autistic.
Optional rules allow you to emulate different genres with a single system, even switching genres within a single game.

Which supplement do you feel is the most useful?
16 replies and 4 images omitted. Click here to view.
All of what you said applies to GURPS as well.
Maybe the GURPS rules are more compact (some examples and "you should know how to use the shape changing advantages by now") but they exist all the same (and are necessary if you play that kind of game).
>All of what you said applies to GURPS as well.
If you're concerned by Mana rules instead of applying them at a universal scale and leaving it at that. Ars Magica 5th is hell on anyone that wants to run a dimensional hopping campaign featuring multiple magic systems in play. There's a lot of fat to cut. As far as I can tell the rules for warping in exposure to certain Regos or your familiar becoming less magical exist only to cause needless busy work.
Nice double-trips. But what I mean is, I'm not sure how utilizing the decans and zodiacs would work in the form of modifying advantages compared to spells or skill checks.
Yeah, Decans require some sort of structure to work. Colleges, Paths, specifics Nouns/Verbs, Psi Powers, and the like can all use Decans pretty easily since it's just down to matching a Decan with the right category, but something entirely freeform is harder. Having a lengthy discussion for every spell about who matches what and why will slow any game to a crawl.

Maybe Decans can't be used by sorcerers unless the sorcerer is using Limited Sorcery? That would give you a "base" set of Decans you can call on, and it makes specialization actually worth it IMO.
It's impossible to write down magic for some reason
Magic use twists or damages a person's body/presence
Basic magic is very common, but esoteric and exotic magic is rare
Source is entirely unknown/not understood, and occasionally does not like to be used (with disastrous effects)
Anyone can make uncontrolled discharges of magic (random fireball goes that way), but controlled discharge (cubic foot fireball hits that fence post) requires very specific equipment/body mods

Had a player run a Gungslinger in a not!Wild-West game with dips into Rogue and Bard, and he managed an intimidation check against a recurring villian who had fucked the party over a couple of times.

The gunslinger had gone on a different path scouting and the villain showed up and had injured a couple of party members pretty well when he got back in. The bad guy said "I've beaten you yet again, can you not best me?" Gunslinger came in wanted to roll intimidaiton, Rolled an 18 with a 12 modifier to the check for a success so i let him go ahead. "I'm your Huckleberry," he says, and i about lost my damn mind. I ruled it as him causing a morale debuff to the baddy and that was just enough to cause him to lose the shootout. It'd been about 12 years since i last saw that movie at that point, but that line brought it all back and I recognized the character for who he was.

Welcome to the Old School Renaissance General, the thread dedicated to TSR-era D&D, derived systems, and compatible content.

Broadly, OSR games encourage a tonal and mechanical fidelity to Dungeons & Dragons as played in the game's first decade - less emphasis on linear adventures 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.

Not questioning your burnout - I get that you don't want to do another dungeon sometimes - but to compare the enjoyment of those three systems is apples and oranges. Yes, they are both foods, both round, and both grow on trees - but I'd never make an Orange Pie with Cheddar.

nayrt, but dude might be recycling the adventure for different groups. I have done that before - especially if running one shots over a sandbox or campaign.
OK boomer
I see your point. But for me the enjoyment from the game comes form the reactions of my players. Seeing wander, fear, hartbreak or hope in their eyes and knowing we are creating something special. The mechanical "game" is just the icing on top.
You just lack imagination. I know such GMs. The book is their Bible and they preach instead of enjoying the experience. It is OK. As long as your players are putting up with your autisum and are having fun.
How many of you just plumb through Dwarf Fortress on Legends mode for maps, names, events sites, artifacts, npcs, etc? Everything has such a weird, inscrutable quality to it, like you're an 8 year old kid reading the appendices in the back of Return of the King again.
