Oh wait also they prefer playing BT with inches instead of hexes, which makes them absolute fucking animals, but otherwise they're fine
...but they didn't forget how to make fusion engines. They forgot how to make certain advanced fusion drive variants like particularly small ones or XLs (which are misnomers since it's not really about the size but the density of components), but even those got figured back out since they had the basic models to build on and experiment with. Advanced parts were lost across the board and replaced by what was still possible to produce.
I actually have a BattleTroop box, almost got to play it once.
And even then, "forgot" is a strong word, a lot of the lost technology was still known (and could still be installed and maintained if you could get your hands on the parts), but they didn't have machines capable of making the machines capable of making the parts until someone got serious development work done. The Savanah Master is a microcosm of that, it started out with a guy finding a use for a cache of extra small fusion reactors that nobody could reproduce at the time, but instead of using them all for the product and then retiring on a pile of blood money, he sent out a bunch of them to fusion drive manufacturers to R&D, and one of them broke through and managed to produce brand new ones, allowing the Savanah Master to continue production into infinity, and allowing that manufacturer to offer a brand new class of teeny tiny lightweight fusion reactors for other projects and vehicles.

God forbid we get a new player into a game.

Gotta keep the bitter oldfag community pure.
Then why the push to rewrite them every goddamned time they finish releasing the rules? Why the waste of time hiring artists and printing the paper to push out $80 hardbacks?
You seem to have misread, I have no issue with new players, the issue lies in how GW poorly rewriting rules just to rerelease them makes the "real" game a fucking mess for most of their products and any serious newbies need to be educated after figuring that out.
Whereas when they just leave something dead (like Blood Bowl had for a very long time) new players get to be introduced to a quality playtested game that is carried by people who do it for passion and not profit.
I see what you mean. I kinda agree. I too prefered Lotr when it was less popular.

The problem with popular games is that sooner or later, they start attracting tourneyfags. And tourneyfags are the cancer of the game.

Look how they wrecked 40k by catering to them. It's such a boring mess right now, no more flavourful rules like in the old times because everything is made to the taste of the competitive players who basically just want chess
90% of Necromunda community editions are shitty patchwork bandaids as the game has more depth than BB which was already pretty well balanced to begin with. Its game that you should sit with your group and edit for yourselves and yes the community editions are good for that even if imo I think theyre bad as they can be used for people who either cba or are having trouble editing it. For others like myself we want the 'official' rules for ourselves to see what WE want to use. No one is shilling for GW here which is why you brining it up is irrelevant. People want the pdf to do with as they please (aka edit with their group for their own purposes) and given everyone and their nan houserules lots of necromunda its hardly like theyre demanding only the 'official' rules be played.

DEldar have the dumbest lore. The Eldar's whole schtick is living in constant fear of the living manifestation of their sins, being forced to cut themselves off from all emotion and pleasure lest they be consumed by the embodiment of what they wrought on the galaxy. And then these fuckers just get off scot-free because they happened to be inside the Webway while Slaanesh was born? What fucking difference does that make? If Games Workshop hadn't given that explanation and some guy came in with that as his little headcanon, everyone would look at him like he was a retard, because it's bullshit mumbo jumbo that somehow it insulated them and turned them into immortal pleasure vampires. There's no logical worldbuilding here at all. There's no rules about the Webway, or the warp, or Slaanesh that would suggest or hint at this happening; it just does. And that'd be fine if it didn't thematically destroy their parent race. How am I supposed to take the struggles of the craftworld seriously when these fucks get to go on doing the exact same depraved shit as before with zero consequence? "Being in an elevator on a Tuesday warped the fabric of my soul and forced me to do what I actively enjoy and was going to do anyway" is not interesting storytelling and it makes for characters that're more bland than Tyranids.

They'd be a lot easier to take seriously if they were a small contingent of Slaaneshi Eldar, who were so desperate not to get eaten that they reduced themselves to her slaves. Groveling at her feet and sinking deeper, and deeper, and deeper into depravity in a doomed bid for princehood that always ends the same. But nope. Gotta pretend like they aren't functionally the exact same as any given Slaanesh cult. No guys, I swear, these mass-murdering slaver rapists are TOTALLY unique and not at all derivative; they're so special, and badass, and definitely don't just fill the exact same purpose any chaos warband could.

But they have goth elf titty, so it's whatever.

Replace "scientist" with "forager", and "literature" with "oral history" and you've got what humans have been doing for thousands of years.
Reform Judaism means admitting that the torah is a manual of Lichdom. That's the reform. The rest of yall liches just hide it.
there is no jewish meaning. the jewish word is tefilin. it literally just means amulet.
this is because philacteries were a staple item in older d&d editions, they were amulets that raised you stats. liches carried cursed phylacteries to take over the body of whoever manages to kill them and loot the item.
then for some reason phylacteries fell out of fashion as beneficial items, but the ones used by liches stayed.
No, allow creativity

What you're described is basically any generic "sex demon" or maybe something out of 40k, which isn't what that image depicts. Like at all. It misses the intent or spirit of it so hard that you could describe literally any eldritch being in the same way.

Quite frankly, that's a pretty decent example of something fundamentally indescribable, but not the best if you're looking for stuff from Daniel Vega.

They're cats. All of them. The mice are just little round-eared cats. Moths are tiny tailless cats with wings and antennae. Dogs are just cats, but bigger and slobbery. Rabbits are just long-earred cats. And pigs are just hairless cats with funny snouts and curly tails.

Tankdramon cost 3 to evolve, only work during your turn and only dig two cards. If you changed even one of these things it'd be interesting but right now it's just bad.
For 3 mem you don't want to lose your blocker, you want to add more pressure.
Also darkdramon cost 3 to play and will control your next draws/commandramons procs so yes you never want to evolve into it

If you're going to be rude at least try to be right.
Then why would you need to shoot them so often it becomes a proverbial phrase?
You don't need to shoot them, people shoot fish to show their shootin skills. But fish in a barrel are dead and stacked end to end and thus can't dodge, so doing so to show your skills really just makes you a poser loser idiot and probably gay as well. It's one of those things that's a phrase because people specifically didn't do it and anyone who did would be laughed at.

Why are just middle-age man healers rare in this genre?
90 replies and 16 images omitted. Click here to view.
in my setting it's kinda the opposite -- the way healing magic actually works is by moving the wound forward in time to achieve a week's worth of healing in a few seconds. what this means is that people who have received a lot of healing magic over the course of their lives actually age quicker

furthermore the process is actually quite painful in a tingling, needling sort of way, but if you experience it enough you begin to associate that pain with healing, so a lot of veteran adventurers also have a slight pain-masochism complex due to the positive association

thanks for reading my blog
>a tingling, needling sort of way
I think a searing heat, like heat that can even be felt externally, since there's a week's worth of heat-producing metabolism in a few seconds.
works too yeah
Jsut for you I will make my next dnd character a gritty dead beat middle aged man who is also a healer

How come we rarely see fantasy races procreate in ways that isn’t “stick a p in the v and get a b”? There’s so much potential for alternate methods of reproduction in terms of plothooks and worldbuilding.

> Dwarves literally pop out of the ground, after one buries a “heart” gemstone.
> Dragons are semi-immortal - their eggs are phylacteries, which is why they’re super protective of them.
> Orcs are born when an evil creatures dies in battle. Most of them grow up to become monster hunters, as it’s the most guaranteed way to “sire” an offspring.

Reposting OP's image.

Kids these days. Always making with the sex, even when it's not sex. I remember when the 'third gender' was the non-sapient beast that co-evolved to gestate the sperm and gamete of our species, before dying painfully as the offspring explodes out of it.
>Halflings are baked
That's just a harmful stereotype, not every halfling is from the Shire smoking a pipe
I considered something along these lines for elves. technically speaking they still had sex but it was an instant process when two elves of opposite gender, which are outwardly indistinguishable, came into physical contact. Once fertilised, the female elf's chest cavity opens to remove a large seed which, when planted, will grow into a fully formed adult elf. Neither parent sticks around long after, in fact the "father" is usually unaware of any sexual act they may have took part in. The resulting spawn requires no rearing or education as it inherits all the knowledge and memories of its parents at the time of contact. The strange and impersonal nature of Elven reproduction is one of many reasons Elves are jealous of humans who can truly know love and intimacy, while the Elves feel they are slaves who exist to tend the earth with no respite until the end of time.
