Ah, yes, Magic: The Gathering, the card game where the battlefield can include an anime waifu, a furry anime waifu, Rick Grimes, Optimus Prime, Godzilla, Gandalf, a Space Marine, Eleven (from Stranger Things), Lolth, Rainbow Dash, Chun-Li, Inigo Montoya, the Hexcore, and the Battle Bus.

This mentality only works if you keep to yourself. If you encourage everyone else to use proxies also, that is going to make LGSes lose money.

The sad fact is a lot of proxy schizos are retarded and are so afraid of proxies not being accepted widely that they just have to remind everyone 24/7 to use proxies instead of buying cards and attack anyone who doesn't support proxies.

Genuinely so happy that I quit magic about a year ago. Drafting was always fun, and EDH with friends could be a good time, but the direction the game's gone for the past few years has been awful and all of these crossovers are retarded. Who in their right mind wants to play a Dr. Who card? Gay.

>GW won't End Times it's cash cow
Imagine my shock.
for the most part they pretty much just eat everything on said world they can and move on, so far there has only been one known world were they have set up a permanent base and that might just be to attract more nids to the galaxy since it has a massive pyschic imprint to the point several eldar that tried to investigate it nearly get their brains blown up from being near it
They're already devouring it, countless worlds have been permanently lost.

Thats when the imperium first became aware of them you retarded faggot it literally says so in you pic.
Nids have been in the galaxy since M35 and possibly a lot earlier.
They won't but they could advance the story somewhat. Maybe they find a way to really fuck the Tyranids back. Maybe some sort of psychic mcguffin that lets you turn the tyranids on each other.
It will be the same shit as devastation of Baal. Another galaxy size rift opens up and swallows up a majority of the nids around terra

My best friend is a real big fan of the OSR. He was the only one in our friend group who was into TTRPGs, but we always talked about having a game some day.

So a few months ago we finally set aside the time to play, but he said he wsnted to do a rules light small campaign first to teach us to play.
He ran some cyberpunk themed hacked up BRP shitbrew, and we had an absolute blast. We did a heist, infiltrated a gang, stole a mcguffin from a powerf corporation, went on the run, sold it to a rival corpo, snd retired our characters in another part of the world, set for life.
It was amazing.

Then came time for "the real game".
Long story short, for several months now we've been crawling through some stinking hole in the ground hiding from low level monsters who kill us in one combat round, playing inventory management simulator inbetween rerolling and trips back to a nearby town that is nothing but a list of equipment for sale and an old one armed guy in a tavern who gives us useless info like "the dungeon gets more dangerous the deeper you go" (no shit?).
We tried suggesting stuff like going to the local baron for a quest, or helping townsfolk, or anything other than going back to the stinking mud hole of death, but he says that the dungeon is the real game, and tbat if we got a quest, he'd have it send us to a dungeon anyway.
He even has a joke he likes to say: "the question "do you want to go to the dungeon" should be read as "are we playing dnd tonight"". Haha.
I don't have the heart to tell him that we're bored out of our fucking minds, because he loves this OSR shit so much.

We could be playing tf2 or minecraft or whatever, instead we waste our sundays on this bullshit.
I dread hanging out with him any more because all he talks about now is some latest piece of shit hipster OSR module we're never honna play because WE CAN'T GET OUT OF THE STUPID FUCKING KOBOLD MUD CAVE
Fuck OSR, it ruined my summer and it's ruining my friendship.

>a system with stupid power scaling to boot, where you can't catch newbies up if you try

Where it's completely trivial to catch newbies up, either via common handwaving, promoting of a hireling of the equivalent level, or through the simple expedient of the pocket change of higher levels enabling a cautious low-level player to rapidly level up. Solved nine ways to Sunday, but insurmountable to the theorycrafter who read a blog linked to a youtube video referencing a reddit post and now knows everything he needs to know about something he's never participated in but is furious about.
Sounds like someone's just buttmad that they keep dumbfucking their way into dead PCs, and their DM won't run neo-trad power-fantasy d20 System garbage.
Yep. Just guys getting assravaged that the game requires player skill they don't have, instead of spoonfeeding them dangerhaired power wank. At the same time they can see skilful players enjoying themselves and much more creative modules being produced. Sloth and envy, a powerful reeing combination.

D&D 5e is kinda like a schizo retard's interpretation of this quote. It tries to follow what it thinks the "spirit" of the quote is, but the end result is D&D 5e.
The commercial version that costs under one buck most of the time has a tablet/monitor version that looks a bit better.
Great and underrated system, but has few sections where a simple rule has amusingly convoluted presentation like the separate non-dominant hand rules that could have been presented just as "put points in this for dual wielding or if you think you'll be doing lot of non-shield things with off-hand if you didn't roll ambidextrous in chargen, otherwise just ignore".

The best designed book we will ever see in roleplaying, because having clear and consistent rules that were easy to reference and find pissed idiots off so bad that Pathfinder got made.
It outsold every other game with every book for every year it was printed. Your levels of cope are insane.
D&D is d&d for better or worse. And at least we have dark sun
4e has some number issues in the earlier books, but this can be fixed and got better in MM3. More importantly, it forces all players to make decisions every round of combat. This is the system's Achilles' heel. If your players are on point, are good a coming up with strategies on fly and are willing to play with the tools they have like vulnerability or forced movement, this can be very engaging. If on the other hand your players are slow, can't commit to strategies without long deliberations and are just swinging for At-Will damage every round, it will be a slog. Some of the issues are bookkeeping, and things like printing out their powers as cards and having tokens for statuses can help, but a lot of it is just getting the apes to press the buttons. The same also holds for team monster: use a variety of monster roles (always reflavour mobs them when appropriate) and have a gameplan that exploits some synergy or the environment. 4e is by design gamey and lends itself to set-piece encounters. You're playing XCOM, not Skyrim.

Lancer draws a lot inspiration from 4e and makes this explicit: combat encounters are fully separated from regular RP and almost always have victory conditions that aren't kill all the baddies. This is artificial and rightfully deserves to be critiqued, but the lesson still holds: if you have to take out the battlemat, there should be stakes.
If they'd called it anything but "Dungeons & Dragons" I think people would've maybe liked it but then it would've flopped for being a really weird very video gamey pseudo-MMO tabletop game. All the classes of the same striker/defender/controller/etc. feel super samey since everyone's technically a "caster" now.

as shown during the dance of the dragons by aemond, smallfolk don't actually need to eat food, at least those from the riverlands. they just farm for fun.
don't forget dorne getting burnt to a crisp and somehow still having a population
I can at least understand Dorne's "resistance" as literally hiding in caves and living off summer surplus while occasionally taking potshots, but yeah outside ASOIAF proper George really fucks up dragons as anything other than anime sky duels or army eating machines
yeah but that doesn't explain the stone dornish nobles not rebelling against the martells or the stone dornish smallfolk rebelling against the nobles
also how did the sandy dornish survive getting their castles nuked?
>doesn't explain the stone dornish nobles not rebelling against the martells
You can say that the Daynes and Fowlers would somehow loyal to the Martells due to marriages or just blind loyalty (like when Nymeria took a Dayne for a husband and how the Fowlers joined forces with Nymeria and her husband against the Yronwood) but it is fucking dumb how the Yronwoods refused to betray the Martells during Aegon's Conquest but somehow wanted to betray their liege lords and future half dornish kings by siding with the Blackfyre Cause which was biased against the dornishmen

>Why not sell a Dread box and inside include parts for Redemp, Brut and the new gun one?
So now you're asking for GW to design an all new multipart Dreadnought kit, to be their FIFTH kit based off of this design? (There was a monopose Redemptor model.) People are already complaining that this new Brutalis kit is too expensive, and you think people would kike the kits they liked replaced with a bigger even more expensive one? And this new kit will replace kits for two models that just came out?

And the Primaris Impulsor mech-frame thing is also based on the same design, but shares no sprues with other models. Should this new kit also replace and build this model?

> They do irl t for all the other vehicles.
Not really. There are some vehicles that just build multiple options, like the Baneblade and Stormstrike. There were two Leman Russ kits, each with one different sprue for main weapons, that are now combined in one kit. The Gladiator tank is the Repulsor kit with one big extra sprue. The Primaris Repulsor and Repuslor Executioner kits share two sprues, with one different for each.

Look, I do get what you're saying. It would be much more convenient for the dreads to share sprues, but it's not that big an issue where each of the dread kits are mega-sellers and very beloved. The original Redemptor kit is from 2017, they probably didn't think of future-proofing it, or maybe they did. The Brutalis does have different armor bits on the legs and waist, not just different arms.
>GW is run poorly by retarded boomers whose mental state is pretty much always "raise the prices" not realizing if you charge normal prices for FUCKING PLASTIC then people will buy more as a result.
>It's sometimes unbelievable how bad at BASIC BUSINESS BULLSHIT boomers are as a generation of entrepreneurs

But one of the problems GW has with selling models right now is that they literally can't produce enough to meet demand. Many boxsets, such as the Kill-Team seasonal boxes, sell out ludicrously fast before fans can get what they want.

If GW were to follow the "BASIC BUSINESS BULLSHIT" that you talk about, then GW should logically RAISE their prices because THEIR SALES WON'T DROP.

But of course GW won't do that because that kills fan enthusiasm.
>such as the Kill-Team seasonal boxes, sell out ludicrously fast before fans can get what they want.
Because they are being bought by scalpers.
>their sales won't drop
Because they are being bought by scalpers
>because that kills fan enthusiasm
I think scalpers and people defending them online are probably what kills enthusiasm.
>But of course GW won't do that because that kills fan enthusiasm.

That's literally what they're doing, genius.

Also they have zero issue with "producing enough", they just purposely make shit scarce to create artificial FOMO to drive up sales.
None of that is sales loss for them. They dgaf about the hobby or whatever. It's just sales.

>89 moves of prep
was more about "I found this strategy and I want to set it up to use it during the game".
In general shogi has slower openings since you have to get more pieces into position and most of those pieces move one step at a time.
Speaking of central rook, wtf do you even do against it as static rook? It's the ranging rook opening I probably have the worst record against.
No idea since I do ranging rook, but a quick search suggests to get your silver to 4六 and if you have time, to get your other silver to 6六 so you have enough defence in place.

Heads up, I edited out Doggerland and changed the few things that depended on it, i.e. British occupying Indonesia. Also made Vrijkorpers mercs.
I think we could leave it as a small risen island and not the proper actual landbridge uniting the British Isles to the mainland. The latter changes the dynamics of Europe enormously, probably way too much, but the former could be a nice "arena" spot for the Europeans to fight over on the Surface.
Too lethal a place to colonize at the moment, or to really war over, but private concerns could set easily disposable expeditions to it in search of riches and new entrances?
I don't mind one way or another but it could be nice to have a sort of neutral ground on the Surface to fight over, so if we take out Doggerland we could perhaps replace it with something else...

Puritans might have been super pruds but it would be idiotic to suggest that Puryain sects held great influence outside of New England.
Southern colonies were in no way puritan and even the Quaker colonies of Pennsylvania would not have qualified as the same sort of 'Purtian' as the New Englanders.

We kicked them out in two waves: first was prior to the English Civil War when they were fucking annoying so we booted them out, and the second was after when they lost and dipped out because they didn't want to live in a non-puritan society (we actually didn't persecute them, the Restoration was big on reconciliation and Christian secularism).
>Second, thus seems to completely ignore the fucking CENTURY of Victorian Britian were Queen Victoria enforced a prudishness that the bong has kept to this very day
That was after the Rococo Period, which was rather Weimarish.
Ancient Greeks did not actually fight naked, but they did do sports naked and they liked to depict their warriors, especially mythical ones, like their sports stars.
Yeah Victorianism is the actual origin of modern prudishness, and it was mostly adopted and then driven by the middle class. The reason it's only just now starting to recede somewhat is because the middle class that came to prominence in Anglophone countries at the beginning of the Victorian period are starting to lose their power and influence.

I'm getting sick of ttrpgs. I'm sick of dealing with players who never show up on time then quit. Planning out a game that's difficult but not too difficult. Feeling bad for killing PCs. Having to come up with descriptions and encounters, make maps, tokens. It's starting to feel like a chore. But I don't want to lose my game group, they're friends I've had for a while.

I also want to finish this campaign and it's quickly reaching the end. But the final dungeon is going to be the most work out of all of them and I'm struggling to find the motivation to make it.

Should I struggle through and finish the campaign? And yes I will talk to my group about it that advice is always so generic.
If you're right before the end of the campaign, you'll be kicking yourself for years to come for not seeing it through.
I just want more hexcrawls. I think they are neat. No one wants to run them though
