I fully agree. Usually I can, but I had some serious issue with these minis. The details were easily scuffed when I used my razor and had a hell of a time trying to sand them. I had a game coming up where I was DMing, and it was a player character's mini, so I aimed for finish rather than perfect.

Welcome to /wbg/, the official thread for the discussion of in-progress settings for traditional games.

Here is where you go to present and develop the details of your worlds such as lore, factions, magic and ecosystems. You can also post maps for your settings, as well as any relevant art (either created by you or used as inspiration for your work). Please remember that discussion is what keeps the thread alive, not dumping walls of text.

While DITV is bretty gud I'm not that sure if it's a "western", as in it runs kinda counter to the narrative basis of westerns.

How would you develop magic from scratch? from the most basic level? What would be the fundamentals of such thing?

Fundamentally, magic would be some kind of energy that don't quite obey the laws of physics.

Taking a break, OP? Shame on you, get back to slurping.

Y'all are all wrong about magic. Numerical phenomena are the most basic level of the universe. Every moment you think the world is formed of squiggly bits such as matter or tits, you are deeply ensnared by delusion. Your brain has a observable lag, yet you claim to see the present instead of admitting to living in a continuous hallucination? Miss me with that lame af shit.

'Magic' is simply an extension of the most relevant primitives that comprise people. That is, numbers. You ever see a wizard brain-blast something? Clearly he is tapping into a precise numerical value suited to going mental blastoid all over shit. The wizards then codify this number.

i thINk iT INescapable They'd INTellIgeNtlly deal with it as a statistic measure, IN facT. They would find diverse methods to gain complex results. Maybe using a SOLID and stable probability generator to add extra power?

I'll make an example with an original metaphor which I invented and conceived and is totes origino. Even though numbers are the primal layer of reality making up everything, the people (made of numbers) get confused by the sensory distortions cast by numbers interacting with other numbers. As if the numbers are some kind of light, and the distortion is a shadow cast when numbers interact. So those who do not do magic are like people hobbled in a cave, looking at the shadows cast by the light and mistaking it for reality. The conclusion is obvious: people are made of metal, and the uterus will flee if given a chance, and binge drinking has no bad effects whatsoever.

TL;DR. People and things are modified by math, this is because they are math too. Therefore magic is math. Thank you for coming to my TED talk.

One of my favorite exchanges on the topic was an animated film where Mirror Master jumped into the Batmobiles rear-view mirror in order to infiltrate the Bat Cave, and then stole Batmans plans to kill the Justice League (which for Batman himself meant burying him alive in his parents coffin).

While Batman got out (being Batman), he calls the others to tell them how to get out of his death-traps, and upon being saved, he reveals what happened, and Superman goes 'you came up with a way to kill all of us!?' in righteous indignation, to which Batman flatly answers
>'in case any one of us turns evil.'
>"You think that one of us could turn evil?'
>'Or brainwashed yeah.'
Stain was an idiot. Getting rid of all the fake heroes isn't going to magically create true heroes to take their place. If everybody Stain considered a fake stopped calling themselves a hero and quit it would be a disaster.
A lot of crazy people believe in a binary world of all good and all evil- and that a singular event can overturn an evil corrupt immoral world they live in and restore a supposedly lost utopian world.

The tend to also believe that the reason the world is in it's corrupt state is from people not wanting the good world bad enough- meaning they think if they want their desired result enough, it'll happen. Meaning any attempt to dissuade them will fail, cause dismissing any arguments makes them feel closer to their desired goal.

Sometimes I commission other artists, too.
Robot Chicken did a play on Batman's "kill the Justice League" plans. Robin finds out about them, gets upset that Batman has a file on him, and gets even more offended when he sees that it's empty. He demands to know, "What would you do if I turned evil?"
Batman slaps him. He cries.

Two days ago, GW changed their policies on what breaks copyright without really telling anyone. Literally every single non-GW animation, including What if the Emperor had TTS and the upcoming Vraks fan film down to FlashGitz' gay furry 40k cartoons are now in major infringement of copyright.

You cannot make games, fan movies or films, fake models or homebrew models, TTRPG games that borrow from the aesthetic or content of Warhammer or non-GW compendium apps and sites. Full stop. It doesn't matter if you're playing as Blood Ravens or some clever rebranding for Charity- it's now infringing copyright.

But you can make fan novel, hobby sites and magazines if they're not for profit, have UNOFFICIAL stamped all over the cover like a condemned Chinese handbag and if they are not critical of anything Games Workshop. But from now on, this means any Warhammer 40K site legally has to be shill, or die.

You also can no longer make 40k artwork for profit. Patron included.

They mentioned that they now have moved to a zero tolerance policy on these matters.

I'd like to add that half of the shit you could normally do for non profit, you now can no longer do. And the other half you need to gimp your work down so everybody knows it's fan garbage.

So... these guys want to make money? ... Right?

Did they just sabotage every aspect of their fandom?

Most hilarious thing about all this:

The GW shills main point of deflection in all this has been, "Finally! Thank god this insufferable fandom will die now".

So not only are they killing off all their fan-content, they're literally trying to deflect by what they've done by dancing and celebrating atop the grave of the customers they've fucked over.
well they had a good run
What an absolutely retarded policy change. It won't last. Somebody's going to have the financial backing to take them to court over this.

On a related note, your rights more or less extend as far as you can afford to fight for them in court, with the exception of any rights you supposedly have when interacting with police. You have no rights when interacting with the police.

>first age elves insane
I’ve been seeing more and more people talk about First Age elves being basically fae or druchii and it’s absolute bullshit. Only the Fëanorians ever commit kinslaying or do anything that isn’t reflective of their perfect Catholic virtue (except for the House of Fingolfin at Alqualondë on accident). And even then most the Fëanorians are basically noble, except Curunir and Caranthir. They just have jewel autism. They’re nowhere near being mindbendingly capricious or cavalierly sadistic like I’ve seen anons pretending. And that’s a good thing; keeps the Eldar unique among modern fantasy elves.

Oh yeah, the layout on those is pretty good.
havent ysed the module specificaly, but i found the idea of having a “home base town” a nearby mega dungeon, and a surrounding wilderness great for games.
you get alittle of everything. you have the two central locations being the town with all the reg npc’s giving a bit of a more stable interpersonal shit. you got the wildlans for more sandboxy stuff, and the megadungeon is a crossection of both, with new areas, but potentially consistant factions and denezins along with new ones.

found it more stable and directed than sabdbox, but less railroady then a necessarily story driven one. you know the town abd the dungeon are major location which you can push further in, but the surrounding woodlands offer oprotunity for unexpected shit.

Also, if you're specifically interested in Tolkien's elves, you'll want to read The Silmarillion which is pretty much a history book of the early ages of the world. It's rather rough read and you might want to take notes and have a copy of the map you can draw on -- maybe even keep the wiki open for looking up names you've forgotten.
His works? Yes, it's monumental. His writing is another thing. His prose can be archaic, his people sometimes don't talk like people, he spends a lot of time describing things that you barely care about. When it works, then it really works, some scenes are genuinely art. But sometimes his prose can feel like he wants to get over it.
I like Elves and would like to build an Elvish army.
The question is though: WHFB or MESBG? Or some other game?
You might want to wait to see how TOW turns out before buying into WHFB.

You're now playing HomeWorld: Deserts of Kharak or DUNE. Either way? I hope you brought along enough shit and people to get some moisture farms going and the jump ship hydroponics actually work. Look for rocks/mountains and hope they have caverns under 'em - you'll hit the water table, eventually. Possibly.
More akin to Mad Max with franken mechs raiding each other.

Your not the first ship to enter the system!
I could get behind this idea. The bigger question is - why the hell is shit failing so badly that noone else has ever come to investigate?
Well its in the outer periphery so travel too the system is pretty near low tier especially since its out of the way. But then you got the random pirates, mercenaries and random traders using it to avoid things.

As for why ships just die when they enter the system. Could some sort device that fries ships jumpdrives when it enters the system or the suns emits a radiation that just burns the drives out as it powers down.
The rights to this franchise are so fucked up.

Welcome... TO HELL!!!
As someone who does a lot of scale models and also has done a bandai kits, a few RGs, a few HGs and 2 MGs I don't think it's as clear cut as you think it is
Bandai kits have lots of parts and plastic true, but the detail, like the detail per square cm is just lower than scale models or warhammer and so I think that effects the cost enormously
You're best off comparing it to japanese scale model manufacturer's like tamiya, finemolds, fujimi, asuka model, aoshima, hasegawa, pit-road, etc
Don't get me wrong, GW are scamming people and I say this as an Australian but you really can't compare it to bandai, like look at the bandai star wars kits, they're way more densely detailed and they're also way more expensive

This looks, uh, a bit like it burns the edition to the ground.
Any particular reason why this is extremely bad?
Uh, jam on linked actions on an ace who can jam you and/or himself with force for defense, and/or gains an extra agility when you spend your focus while shooting him, is insane.

It all comes down to whether its 6, 16, or 26 points, of course. But giving Kylo the ability to boost into your face at i5, jam off your token, shoot you with force for offense *and* defense mods while your only mod got jammed off is basically just scooping up your agency and placing it in the bin. He's an extremely maneuverable ace with a turret and the ability to boost into white rotate actions, *and* he now has the ability to facejoust you and turn it into a favorable trade, or to run away from you in the endgame while shooting backwards and jamming off any locks you might try to set up, then stacking evade+force the turn you actually manage to get him in arc.
It's fine but pretty overrated by its fans.

I think Filoni is one of the only people at Lucasfilm who gets what makes SW good at all but he does need to chill on jerking off his OC characters. Though that might not all be him since he's been effectively uninvolved with Bad Batch yet that's the worst offender yet.
Yes. I completed my collection last month. My favorite SW game by far.
