So since so many modern games are just Powered by the Apocalypse rehashes when will we see a pushback where people just start making crunchy and intense games again?

>in their 30s with jobs and families and want something different and original from what they were fed as teens.
Then they won't go for things with lots of crunch, because then you're spending more time doing math than you are actually playing the game, and they'll have a fraction of the time they had before to play each week so they'll opt for simple games.

But you'd know this if you had games of your own.
When you make it.
What year is it where you're posting from?
Where's the audience for it?
All the supposedly hardcore types got scared by mechanics and ran to rules light osr
The only time we ever saw more than one crunchy release in a four year period was when big studios were doing it.
The biggest studio to still care about crunch is Paizo, who put out a crunchy game and are still trying to make money on it.
WotC is never going back to crunchy as crunch not only costs more money to make but risks alienating the Mass Audience which every major product needs to target for their corporate overlords these days.
So just wait for Paizo to make another game, or check out stuff like that super autistic tacticool game that was made by a few people from /tg/ a few years ago, either way, know that you'll never have a glut of options.

I've never understood why anyone thinks that Kurosawa samurai movies make good L5R inspiration. No they fucking don't. They're good fucking films but they're about ronin's and dirt farmers and shit. Try pic rel instead.

Kurosawa movies are good l5r ronin inspiration on the basis its also where spagetti westerns are based off
Ran and Kagemusha are also good films with nobles in them

Unicorn women are frequently referred to as looking different from other Rokugani women.

Would Unicorn fever be a thing among male samurai?
In a shameful way, possibly. Remember, Rokugan is xenophobic to the core because they were literally given their ways both from the gods who they emulate and because they can go ask their revered ancestor who was so cool they get to go to heaven what to do. Yet they're still human, enjoy the exotic not too exotic, and have plenty of sins. It's probably a thing, especially in pillowbooks, where the exotic unicorn woman who is not afraid to openly love their man and show some skin like we would look at arabic belly dancers and latina women. That said, Rokugani women probably have their own genre of Unicorn men bodice rippers, and as many stories of unicorn women hussies being homewreckers and evil love rivals.

Our tiefling Warlock's attempt to show up his distant, abusive father was derailed when our party's Sorceress fucked his dad.
He basically got a curt letter saying "Dear Son, I'm very happy with your new stepmother. You no longer need to consider yourself my heir. This is the last communication you will receive from me, I encourage you to live your own life. Signed, Lord Marlowe."
He got really, really mad about that, but I'm still giggling about how it played out.

Only preaching to the converted is a novel marketing idea, I admit.
why would they sculpt a mini and not put them on the site? I would actually by this one unlike the shitty hammerstein sculpt.
Presumably it's part of a release schedule. A better question is why you'd bother trickling out releases when nobody knows you've got a new game out.

What is the point of Beastmen?
105 replies and 15 images omitted. Click here to view.
Years ago, I saw a concept for female beastmen in a generic fantasy world that intrigued me (and more importantly, my dick).
In antiquity, there were beastmen, who were all men, and Amazons, who were all women (with a very, very few sons). The king of the beastmen knew that his people needed wives, and so made such a proposal to the queen of the Amazons, who he figured needed husbands too. Of course, no Amazon would ever submit to marrying a man, beast or otherwise. Nevermind the entire tribe marrying all at once. The queen's extremely rude reply enraged the king of beasts, and the ensuing war ended with his victory. Nobody believed in spousal rape in antiquity and Amazons still only have daughters, and that's why your medieval farm sometimes gets raided by centauresses.

Generally when you have multiple (bad) writers you end up like modern gotrek where his general personality and appearance is set but his motivations and character development are schizophrenic and constantly resetting, this is just rebooting the characters for a cartoon episode and then going back to business as usual next time they appear in anything (within the same year)
Not him but I like them cause I think they look REALLY fucking cool.
And if GW doesn't give 'em a book I might try making my own damn rules. Though that's a definite "Maybe" since they currently only have two fucking units and I already tried my hand at updating the rules for those.

If you're also referring to Rat Ogres, Moulder's always been my favorite skaven even back when I tried Fantasy. Making my own Rat Ogres is a fun modeling project since GW isn't gonna do it.
I don't know which rat is funnier. Front right with his beer belly, or the arch coomer behind him

The funny thing about that example of 'flirting', is that it leaves so many outs.
i know in the age of ultra-rainbow supremacy the mainstream sees being over-the-top sexual as a gateway, but the reason the trans' commit suicide as opposed to sleeping with me is because they have no clue how to flirt (or appear) in a way that is actually inviting and intriguing.

Any WIPies in progress? Originally had in my head a more reddish-brown for this guy's pants but they turned out more orange.
How long have you been able to set the CB store language to Shasvastii?
Been playing NCA recently and love Bolt fireteams but have a hard time making the Clausewitz Uhlan work. I know its not the most optimized TAG but should I be using it as an attack piece or surprise ARO piece? I've only been playing the game for a few months and haven't really used TAGs either so I might just be bad.
I've literally never used it, it's just a worse Cutter. I've been meaning to try a Bolt Core, how does it go? I've only done a Haris at most.
I haven't played NCA but I've played against them, and the Uhlans that have done the most damage to me have been used actively, and looking at it's statline that makes sense. The Uhlan doesn't have Hidden Deployment (it's not a Cutter or a Sphinx) and it's obvious what's hiding behind a S6 camo token, so you aren't really gaining anything from surprise AROs. Revealing it in active lets you use your Surprise Attack (-3), however, making the most out of your initial strike.

So yeah, leave it in camo, push it as far as you can into enemy territory, then reveal yourself in active and tear up as much as you can.

>Mark of Storm isn't an attack so it doesn't work with Polearm Momentum.
Yes, and I have seen it paired with Mark of Storm regardless, even in actual play. It is a fuzzy rules interaction that the DM will have to make a ruling on. I apologize for not making that clearer.

I would say to give people the benefit of the doubt with the builds they create. Few people are deliberately trying to piece together poor builds, so if you think that a build could use more metaphorical polish, feel free to suggest some improvements.

The game and any build's sole purpose is to be fun, so nothing is mediocre unless someone's method of "fun" is minmaxxing.
However, I have a strong aversion to people who'll call themselves minmaxxers when their builds are just... underwhelming.
>potentially very good if the DM signs off
In spite of the slight vagueness to some aspects of the wording, I'd struggle to think of any thought process that totally outlaws the combo. If a DM banned it, though, I'd lean into one of the more widely-palatable builds I posted.
>I personally think that if the character already has Lightning Rush, each additional immediate action power produces diminishing returns.
Depends on your party makeup. Feast of Despair would largely eliminate the need to conserve power points throughout an encounter, but I've never shared a table with an Ardent while playing a Battlemind. I like conserving power points for powers like Feast of Despair and the different aspects (namely Unspeakable Horror, such a great synergy with Whip Training too, can't say it enough).

The Warden/Runepriest idea is quite interesting to me. Vampiric Heritage and Primal Vampire would combo really well there too, stacking up 2 more surges as well as an extra surge per encounter. If you're hybrid-ed into Martial you could eke out up to 3 healing surges per encounter, allowing you to essentially dole out and float on healing surges through even some pretty agonizing dungeons. Lots of feat investment, but it'd complement the framework you built. Divine Vampire has a lot of potential too, since you could potentially poach your entire team's healing surge count just to transform them into (much more powerful, At-Will, surgeless, saving-throw-granting) scrolls.
Not sure if it'd beat out the clerics I've had to DM for or the clerics I've played with, but it definitely works quite well if you're focusing on it.

I think that the build works well enough as a plain warden, maximizing hit points and thus healing surge value that way. Comrades' Succor should give the character more than enough healing surges to work with. Still, if you would rather hybrid this, you can go ahead and do so.

One of the benefits of using Protective Scrolls is that each minor action also grants the user a +5 power bonus to all defenses until the end of their next turn. Of course, the downside is that this eats up minor actions.
>extremely condescending and prideful
Nigga that's you. I am in the Discord and you are just a liar. No one there is particularly rude or prideful unless you are acting like a complete retard. Then they treat you like one

Oh, I neglected to pay any attention to the ritual. Not in any campaigns that dole out rituals readily if at all, but I could totally see how that mostly sidesteps the need to regenerate healing surges. Three feats for 2+(3*encounters) healing surges/day is still a great investment in my eyes, but I suppose it depends on how much your DM forces you to run the "no long rests allowed" gauntlet.

The distinction would be irrelevant in Star Trek. Those services exist to give their members protection under international law: to give them cover in case of capture.

I doubt the Klingons and Romulans would care that the humans they found sniffing around their territory wear uniforms or not.
