Recent picked up a reprint of Michael Moorcock's Elric saga, it has the first 4 books in it. And was wondering if people wanted to talk about this piece of /tg/ history? Also /tg/-related books thread.

>your blind contrarian rage towards D&D has made you not like Jack Vance

That's the clearest sign that you need to just fucking stop being the dumbest piece of shit on this board already, holy shit.
Elric just seems to be retarded. His power hungry cousin who despises him tries to kill him. So he leaves that cousin in charge of his kingdom and the woman he loves, and is betrayed. Then he does it again. How am I supposed to take this fag seriously?
i also just bought that omnibus, weird. i read part of the series in college, up to the part where he meets several guys of similar persuasion, to say it without spoilers. it's pretty good, giving me a lot of things i want to do in D&D. it's why i'm looking in the system thread for games with similar "spirit pact" type magic. i also read the full corum series, which i didn't like as much, the beginning and end are both good but the middle parts feel very slapdash, very "and then corum met this thing and fought it and then he moved on and met that thing and fought it"
I like Jack Vance, and the Dying Earth is undoubtedly one of the seminal works of modern fantasy fiction.

But the magic system was stupid even in the books.
I read both of these last month and was well pleased.

I liked how minimal it was, wizards could only memorize 3-4 spells and even the superbadass archmages could take like 6-7 at a time, so they had to be super careful what they took.

I can only imagine a handful of them seething about Warmaster Malcador
Ashur might have been a suitable candidate for Warmaster. The Emperor actually likes him. He seems fairly competent with since his conquests were wealthy AND loyal. His only downside is he distrusts the other primarchs but considering how most of them are is probably for the best
>considering how most of them are is probably for the best
Yeah, like half of these guys make Mortarion or Angron look somewhat tolerable.

Alright so I did a prelimary search for making a Red deck.
Am I missing something, why is making a decent Gallantmon deck almost as expensive as a mid-range Jesmon deck? I thought Gallant wasn’t that good yet some of their cards go over $4 or more.
>Am I missing something, why is making a decent Gallantmon deck almost as expensive as a mid-range Jesmon deck?
Crimson mode. In reality you only need 2 max and can be changed for blitz omni if you wanna do budget. I consider gallantmon good not great but im not going to deny that it heavily relies on your opponents field which is why ex3 wargrowl is so good.
>cucked out of real art just like the d-reaper deck was

I want to mention that brownies and other household spirits are criminally underused.
One of the best games I ever played was a murder mystery that involved finding and coercing a brownie into talking with us about what she saw
If you ever have a notable family with skeletons in the closet consider adding a brownie or hob for the party to find and ask for information
That's a very cool thing. I don't think I've had brownies around since they days of Basic, but considering how many folk stories there are about them you're right. No need for several thousands of pages of monster descriptions when there are mischievous spirits around willing to play with the party.

Also if you have Dream of A Black Swan's E.G.O. weapon, which has a chance to reflect damage back.
I kept having to redo a Day because a certain Researcher kept dying for some reason. It took me 2 real-life days to realize that the Researcher in question had Black Swan's weapon and the damage reflection triggered Punishing Bird into inflicting enough damage to oneshot them.

I think a knocker-upper was a profession before clocks were cheap/reliable enough for everyone, that would go around with a long stick tapping on people's windows to wake them up for their shifts.

Clean up some of those mold lines, eg on the panzerfaust.

I really like Sonic Sledgehammer's WWII painting videos.

If you work with black primer, you can undercoat stuff like the hair, zeltbahn, panzerfaust, skin etc with an overbrush of a dark brown to provide a better base.

For the guns I like to drbyrush a dark metallic over a black base, then go back with a black wash. Some players paint it dark gray but I think gunmetal should be exaggerated on miniatures in the same way you use slightly brighter colors that RL.

Imagine how gravity would pull that gun and the strap downwards. It would look more natural hanging straight down off his right shoulder. In general I don't like/use the guns on straps in Warlord kits. They're fragile you have a tacked-on look.

With your assembly/layout in general, some of your guys are going to be really pricy. A veteran grenadier with both an assault rifle and a panzerfaust is going to be 23 points. I really like to pad out squads with rifles. And give fausts to riflemen, so if your opponent gets exceptional damage he has to pick whether he wants a faust or assault rifle gone.

Anyways, just take it easy and take one piece off the sprue at a time. Clean it with a file or edge of an exacto knife. Test fit a pose before putting glue on to make sure it works.
How do you find out what kind of terrain your table should have when trying to recreate some part of a battle or just general region?

They are the many names of God. Fireball is the Burning Name. True Strike is the Perfecting Name. Silent Image is the Creating Name. And so forth.
In the SF setting I'm working on, there's a technology that basically allows you to apply force to objects at a distance. It basically lets you make things like force shields, hovercraft, tractor beams, etc.

I'm not sure on a name. Right now I have: affector, exerter, and impeller. Any ideas/preferences?
If any merfolk or other aquatic races exist in your setting, what are they like? What magic do they use besides Water magic, if any, for example?

Also, does anyone have any advice for doing merfolk or other aquatic races well?
Sounds similar to the cycles of Chinese history, in this case the end cycle. You're setting up some potential major conflicts for de facto power. Massive corruption will be likely so you've got potential for minor revolts too.

>What Comics,Story Arcs etc etc have you used for your campgains?
I've drawn a lot of inspiration from X-Men, using the X-Men set-up of a mutant superteam operating out of an academy for mutants lead by a "Professor X." I drew a lot on the Sentinels and Morlocks storylines.

I've also done campaigns based on the 80's Avengers run when they were a government-sanctioned team taking orders from Henry Gyrich.

Both are solid premises for a campaign.

What kind of maps do you people use for your supers games?
It's hard to find fictional modern-style city, nation, and world maps. I'm thinking about ripping the one out of Ace Combat but I'm not happy with the solution.
Either way, just normal actual Earth sucks for a game like this.
You've been asking that question in these threads for how many months now? What in the actual fuck is wrong with you?
Well his powers are shadow-based but seem to be mostly ranged so maybe hers are shadow-based but more self-focused.
Maybe she can shift into a shadow form with selective tangibility - she can ramp up the solidity of the form to tank blows and tear through foes like they're made of tissue paper or she can fade into something insubstantial to fade though walls and let enemy attacks pass through her without damage.

The priest calls the Emergency Meeting that literally shocks the whole barony!

The priest announces that he casted Detect Evil on the baron and found out that the baron became evil! The priest now says that to fulfill the Mandate of Heaven in the name of God, everyone must rebel and overthrow and excommunicate the baron!

This is not an art thread. Nice new arts are acceptable, but picture spam will be seen as flooding and reported.

Thats a relief, thanks for the word anon. How long has it been down?

The messages are recent, it must have been literally this morning or so.
No problem!
Good to know. Didn’t know they have a Discord, though I suppose most places do these days.
I’m definitely not knowledgeable enough to use one of those tools, but if you did it the community would be grateful! I’ve been saving individual articles as I use them. Might post a dump somewhere once the horde gets big enough to make it worth it.
I've been using winhttrack to archive the other sites, but getting what seems to be a bunch of Linux command-line programs running on my windows machine when I'm rusty with Linux and haven't used it in several years is a bigger hassle, and I'm not going to attempt it until I can set aside a whole day to fuck with it and figure it out, and that could be a while.

So if someone else has more time to sit down and get the tools working, it'll be faster than waiting on me.
