Plus, didn't palpatine send out a shut down order when the separatist leadership was secured? Obviously, there were groups that were missed on account there being holdouts in the first place, but if the shutdown codes were never sent, they'd be in a stronger position overall
>>
>>81849585
Yeah, I do think it was said when the CIS surrendered, part of the surrender was them sending a general shut-down order to all their battledroids.
>>
>>81849603
This is something I always questioned.

WHY do the CIS just have a general, galaxy wide order to shut down all battle droids?
Wouldn't the existence of something like that have been in the Republic's best interest to dig up then just blare out over every comm channel?
A more laborious few month process to deactivate all of the droids in service? Sure. But a global "shut down" command xhrseems utterly retarded.
>>
>>81849789
I figure it's more local commanders have codes to shut down their troops, and the CIS senate told all of them to stand down, war was over, deactivate your troops and surrender peacefully- rather than having a single off-button in the CIS senate building.

Nothing that makes them look too competent.

These are the same people that sold the western world on Iraq-WMD.

Otherwise, I think the best description of CIA agents is people without morals willing to do terrible things for even a tiny perceived benefit to national security. Also, factionalism and LARGE amounts of compartmentalization cells with 1-2 agents running a bunch of local nationals who do all the ACTUAL spying, flipping them destroying their lives and killing them at the drop of the hat.

There are no 'good guys' when it comes to intelligence. Only people acting in the interest of their nation and sometimes themselves, regardless of the morality of it.

Personally I think you have too many races when you can’t think of a distinct role for each one. I’d suggest thinking of what distinguishes each race, where they live and if they’re to similar to another race or the players likely won’t encounter them in their session I suggest removing them

Fuck yeah motherfucker.

Looking for fun ideas for fantasy races to procreate, that are different from the way the humans do it.

The way I see it, adding this core difference to a fantasy race will inform the way their culture and psychology works, and in turn help the player role play something that isn't just human with extra features.

How do elves make more elves? How do orcs and goblins make their hoards?

Dwarves don't have a plan for what happens if it runs out because they haven't really considered that possible. If this was a modern setting, they would have developed a dwarf recycling program and be desperately searching for a new way to make dwarves. I might have the secret be out and the cost of "Dwarf-ium" be a commodity that's traded or the dwarf high council trying their damndest to keep the secret just so that doesn't happen.

It isn't that any half-elf is given the choice at some point. It was that Elrond's human dad went to Valar and part of the deal they struck was that him and his family had to each make a choice at that point. The ones who went Elf were, for all biological intents, pure Elf from then on, and vice versa for the Men. Any further generations were born one or the other, even if they technically had that mixed blood in them.

I've had my eye on glass mixing balls but the EBAY seller is from the UK so I don't wanna wait like 2 months just for some balls to arrive at my door.
Will Lava rock beads be a good choice or is there a different material type of bead hopefully heavier than stainless steel balls even with the hole inside to make into a necklace for shaking up my droppers/pots?
I found quite the number of beads made of varying materials searching on Amazon but I'm not sure which to use if I decide against lava beads: https://www.amazon.ca/BEADNOVA-Natural-Gemstone-Volcanic-32-34pcs/dp/B00J9F7F50

>Is there any way to get enough paint onto that to actually get any visible results?
If you are painting something like the pupils of a guys eye, or a heads up display on a sci.fi thingy you may not need that much paint. Problem you can run into is that you have to thin the paint down for good flow. So I found that using inks for superfine freehand detail is actually a lot more useful. You'll get strong colors and good flow from the brush by default.

>Without getting paint into the ferrule?
Yeah, you just can't put a lot of paint in the reservoir. But if you use inks you don't need much. For long lines or bigger pieces you are definitely better off using a bigger brush with a fine point though, aa your "good" brush.

>Or is this just a meme brush with a bit of self awareness hence the "psycho" naming?
It's definitely a meme name. Most things these days I paint with a DaVinci 2 or 1, but on occasion a superfine brush like this can come in handy. Adding some freehand detail to the pages of a spellbook or something like that.

Not sure if drybrushing the white back in was the best call, the texture buildup is kinda undesirable, layering and glazing managed to fix quite a bit of it though. Also, not sure if I should build up the white more, I'm still gonna do some recess shading and highlighting.

Nah, it's higher. And it's overbalanced, really, because martial arts charms are not that great and you're wasting a ton of XP building up the martial arts ability over and over.

Even for just dipping to get dodge charms, getting snake and laughing monster style up to 2 is 8 xp you could have spent getting an extra dot of willpower or an extra favored charm, even before you get to the cost of the charms.

Solar brawl's burst offensive ability pretty easily outstrips what martial arts can do with anything resembling the XP investment.

Solar melee + resistance together is basically godly. Bulwark stance+iron kettle body makes it so that most enemies are about as likely to give you initiative by attacking you as they are to take it, and essence-gathering temper can keep you gaining motes while you do it. Divine executioner stance gives you about a half excellency for a single mote and usually adds damage to boot. I suspect that by high essence, with deep investment into both trees, it might not even be possible to make a martial artist that has an even chance of winning.
>>
>>81847592
Bottom line, basically: the current state of martial arts is that they're weaker than native solar charms. They're so the social character can have an all-around decent way to defend themselves, or for players who want prepared fluff and flavor to their combat style instead of fluffing it themselves. This is by a lot, actually.

The MA generally held to be the most powerful is Shining Point, a sword-based instant kill styel (though a lot of mechanically inclined people feel Righteous Devil is better), and someone did a few playthroughs of fights between a solar melee user and a shining point stylist, at various level of investment (3 charms in for both, enough charms to learn the entire shining point style for both, etc).

End result is that the shining point guy wins about 1/4 of the time, but when he does it's a flashy and memorable massive damage kill. The boring but rock solid melee guy wins 3/4 of the time by wearing down his opponent.

This just gets more exaggerated as you go deeper in, because the MA guy has to keep buying up the skill and MA charms aren't designed to build on each other cross-style, so you're buying a lot of charms you don't really want to reach the ones you actually want to combo, while the native charm guy is removing his weakness or add synergy with almost every pick.

And then because MA charms are mote-spendy, even when you assemble a powerful combo from four styles you end up paying like 30m to launch it and pray it lands, and the boring but practical guy just clashes it with paired weapons for +2 dice you can't get since you're probably using unarmed, a "roll twice keep best," rerolling all 1s, subtracting one of your successes for each 1 you roll, and then has an 80% chance of adding non-charm successes and dice on top of that. He probably snuffs out your super combo, does significant damage to you since you have limited armor options, and spent less XP and less motes to do it.

also, while you tell me that, >>81846687 how does this concept sound? The idea that you have to commit to different schools of magic before casting and it costs a resource in terms of physicality, but that you can get that resource back later, being a sort of mid term commitment to a 'style'

>Btw, how does reincarnation work?
idk, but the "get fucked in the next life" might work well with the idea that heroes and other extraordinary people get to escape the cycle and live forever as saints/legendary spirits or whatever.

>>81846687
I'm gonna be honest and say I don't really get what you mean. are the "classes" essentially magical or technical skillsets? and what does it mean to expend (and recover) class points?
I'm not sure I would say it's too convoluted, but it does sound very abstract which may or may not be a good thing depending on what you're aiming for.
>>
>>81849311
Think about it then, why you want reincarnation in your story and what the thematic meaning of it being there is, even for tabletop the background lore helps

As for my system, the idea is this: let's say... One guy had 3/3 points, another guy had 7/7. Both of these people are of the same level so they have the same sturdiness in their 'aura,' but if they both spend 1 point, the first guy loses a whole 33% of the extra defense his aura can provide him. In exchange, he might be able to access a school of skills or magic for a while

I'm still working it out, but the concept is that I don't want the characters being able to do 'anything' even if they have learnt those things, at least not without planning. A master mage in all the schools would need to have grown to develop a lot of points (it's partly genetic too, you can be really strong with just 2-3 points and fight like Rock Lee or something), if he wanted to use 3-4 of his say 11 or so mastered magic types without passing out or dying when sneezed on. (I might have it affect your body if you go below 25% of your points)

I'm not sure and it might sound dumb and annoying as a reader and in that case I can scrap or rework it
>>
>>81849311
And yes, more or less. I have a really well thought out hard magic system regarding how they cultivate an energy source around them for everything from martial arts to manipulating spells, but I also want the characters to be able to fight in ways they befit their style rather than be reduced to firing blasts from afar. I don't want this to be like Naruto where everyone fights in patently bizarre and illogical ways like a bunch of CPUs made to fight it out on easy difficulty (see: Sasuke not using half of his skill set vs Ishiki). Part of why the idea might translate ok to tabletop and why I asked here, besides that I don't want to go to r/worldbuilding (fuck reddit), since tabletop has players who are playing with risk and reward in mind and not just hamming it up for plot reasons

Maybe that makes more sense
>>
>>81849311
oof, well I'll add this: you just expend the points when you use a skill, but other skills from that group (say other Dark Mage skills other than the one you might hypothetically use) won't use other points. Also, the block of points you expend or point you expend on a skill is linked to the class itself, so recovering it means you have to spend it again to use that class again.

Yeah that's about it.

Kamigakari is an episodic JTRPG with an emphasis on cool, high-powered adventures, designed around unraveling the mystery of and bringing down the powerful entities known as False Gods or Aramitama. KGK is a grid-based game that uses a D6 system, with a resource pool called Spirit Dice used to fuel abilities and modify the outcome of rolls. Players also have access to a finite, but powerful, resource called "Spirit crest" that's used to activate several special abilities that can turn the tides in their favor, At their own risk. The narrative style is either regimented or mostly freeform, depending on how strictly you follow scene rules, but doesn't place many limits on what kind of story you can run.

Depends on the edition. As a self-certified Modern Shadowrun Specialist, I feel egotistical enough to pose my opinions as facts. From most recent to least:
In 6e, the best weapon in Shadowrun is Grenades and Mages. Guns fucking suck, an assault cannon statistically doesn't even knock a literal baby unconscious the vast majority of the time, let alone kill them. Yet for some reason, in this awful edition where they cut damage universally in half and deleted armor, Grenades are still thumbnukes. They were already strong in 4e and 5e, and yet they got BETTER, relatively. Mages also got access to Amp Up, which lets you boost a Fireball a literally uncapped amount, letting you nuke a city if you really feel like it. Sure, it'll kill you, but even a lesser amount of Amp Up is enough to end a fight without risking falling unconscious.
In 5e and 4e, it's generally the same, but with a slight difference. To start with, anything that fires off explosives will always be overpowered as hell. No edition has good rules for dealing with them. Toxins, as well, are obnoxiously overpowered, making any full auto gun with Narcoject DMSO Capsule Rounds the best, but those are pure cheese and you will incite an arms race with your GM if you abuse them. What you really care about in a GUN depends on the situation you use it for, but for 5e only, you always care about a serviceable accuracy stat (5 or more before mods, generally). Whether you're trying to bring something you can conceal or go Nuclear, you absolutely want to maximize your firerate and have a mag capacity high enough to slap out a few of your biggest sprays. Moddability matters a ton, as well.
In fact, that's the most important part of any weapons--Unique mods and anomalous stats. I'll continue this in a second post.

The Alpha remains the Golden Boy of big-fuck-you-guns for many players, mainly because it's available at chargen, has a built-in grenade launcher, and has a uniquely very high base RC stat. The Yahama Raiden beats it in terms of raw stats of the gun itself, because of an extremely unique attachment setup that lets you jam basically every attachment you could ever want on it. You can hit high enough RC to spray full autos at no penalty with only 7 str, which is unmatched by basically every other gun that does as much damage.
For a concealable option, you generally care about similar things. Uniquely concealable guns end up king for that, but if you don't care about bypassing metal detectors and just want something as a jacket piece, no gun comes close to the Walther P118, a unique machine pistol from the SotA ADL book in 5e. Full auto, high ammo capacity, uniquely high RC stats, amazing base attachment loadout. It's just got everything.
Automatics weapons (Machine Pistols up to Assault Rifles) are always preferrable, because they use the same stat. It's an unprecedented amount of skill point efficiency.
For 4e, the "fire rate is king" maxim gets even more pronounced, because you have the option of EITHER -X defense, OR +X DV, meaning a machine pistol firing Full Auto potentially becomes nearly undodgeable OR a nuclear bomb that does more damage than an assault cannon.

So, basically, what makes a gun is unique attachments, unique stats, and being able to shit out the highest quantity of bullets with the least penalties. Pistols and Sporting Rifles languish.

Sure. I pirated and then bought
- Wild Fields 1e
- Savage Worlds
- Hollow Earth Expedition, along with Secrets of the Surface World expansion
- Twilight 2013 - and I regretted it later, but found a buyer to recoup my costs
- Dogs in the Vineyard
And not sure if this one counts, but I used Witcher, the Polish one, for over a decade on a pirated copy. Then got a really good deal for the whole fucking set in 2013, buying it cheap and in mint condition. Same with Eye of Yrrhedes, which I played for decades, using variety of sources, but only bought it in 2018. But those weren't store bought, so go figure.

Of course, there are dozens of systems that I pirated and that's it. Even if I liked them, I never felt like I have anything to gain by buying them for real.
