I don't mean some kind of demon or some voracious animal.
I mean a race made of meat and bone that lives on Earth (or maybe the sea) that reproduces through sexual intercourse, eats, breathes, grows old, dies, etc. A race that walk and talk, read and write, think of the future and at least feign an understanding of human morality.
Is it at all believable for every member of such a race to be evil?

Just use any mention of Jews as further evidence of their insanity. Without that, they have no real argument since their entire worldview depends on Jews..
Sharks are evil, those cleaning fish are good, school fish are lawful.
Alignment does appear naturally, so you could imagine a whole culture or race that's selfish and dog-eat-dog
If you put an evil race in your setting, you are responsible for the evil they do.
Honestly not really. In reality, all we really have to work with for an actual basis are humans. A small group may be "evil" (where evil can be defined as acting out against social and biological norms to injure a fellow member out of some sort of gain on a regular enough basis to cause disruption) as a whole, but the majority of people tend to be decent and even good. More and more evidence is presenting that humans did not just wipe out other demi-humans by warring with them, we mated with them.
So realistically, most other races that are mortal and are sapient will form societal values we can at least recognize. That presents a basis of understanding that both groups can understand. As long as the sole basis of the relationship that form isnt exploitation/destruction, its arguable that they probably shouldn't be viewed as evil.
Violent tendencies are understandable. Greedy Tendencies are understandable. Pride, Lust, Envy- all are understandable. But so is empathy, honor, and justice.

More believable is the entire ruling class being evil. But the idea that every random footsoldier is a sociopath would mean the society simply isn't functional unless they are also MASSIVE cowards.

Shit dude those look pretty swag. I actually like the big armor and weapons, makes them look like they were huge guys when they were alive.
Nice football themed skeletons for your high school horror D&D game, fag
Thanks, the model in the middle wields a big spear he got from killing a maneater, if that's the one you mean.

Is it "TEE-fling" or "TAI-fling"?

I always give the bottle a little shake before taking any paint out. If it's been sitting for a long time it'll require a much more thorough shake to get the paint properly mixed again. On a wet palette it's quite easy to tell when the paint has separated but that takes quite a few hours.
Placing agitators in the bottle helps both to shake it and gauge just how badly the paint is separated e.g. if you can't hear them rattle around at all because they're stuck at the bottom.

>One question about using varnishes: After you use them can you still paint on top of them?
Yes, and gloss varnish is even used to aid washes flow better. Actual varnishes take a long time to dry so I spray matte medium instead if I'm in the middle of painting.
Depends on what kind of highlight technique you want to use. Edge highlighting is probably twice as bright.
Like <.............................> that much.
There's no straight up single answer. The only requirement is that you highlight with a brighter color. You can highlight black with a green or orange and it would be fine, for example. You can mix in white with your base color and use that as a highlight, you can use bone-white as a universal highlight on anything at all. There's no rules to highlighting.
as others said, grading on the wings is a little too flat, but most won't notice it at first because the rest is pretty good
What about Metallics? I tend to leave that pot open for a while to make sure no wet paint gets stuck on the rim, so I shake it once and then use it for the next 3-5 or so minutes.

>Actual varnishes take a long time to dry so I spray matte medium instead if I'm in the middle of painting.
Might try and invest in that then. Because, like I said, paint scrapping off tends to happen way more often than I like.

A player gave me Deathreats. Everything was going smooth and fine happy and dandy. The player felt insulted by a smug knight amd challenged him to a duel. I expected the player to win but he botched two rolls and caught a critical when low and died. The player then chucks his dice screaming bloody murder like a super sayian followed by deaththreats and fist thrusting.
He has apologized without any real excuse and we had a talk about not being a sperg over a game. Not my first sperg but possibly one of the worst i have faced. Feel bad, Hit me up with some of your sad tales to help me feel better.

If he talked to you about it and apologized that means he's not unsalvageable. You can rewire his psyche which won't be any problem.

Dude was definitely on the spectrum
>t. nailed to the spectrum
I did feel that this cunt would actually slap someone. Otherwise I would been happy playing with him, two of my closest friends are autistic and one has spergaisms but never have I felt threatened by them.
Spent 6 months dedicated to making a new system in my spare time.
Modelled it after ff tactics so the players have an ever expanding job list. Had a total of 72 jobs the majority were unique combinations with thier own mechanics.
During session 0 a player stated they wanted to multi class. I told him this system currently doesn't support it because
A: comparing one job to every other job took forever, doing so with every combination would be near impossible.
B: there already is a job fir every combination of 2 jobs so it's kinda built in.
C: i would have to change the action economy so it would be unbalanced or extremely simple.
He says well this game is so limiting after having never seen a single bit of the options or information. I call him out by asking him how, but obviously he keeps just saying "it limiting" wothout backing his claim up.
Stayed in a negative mood the whole session and brought the groups enthusiasm down to nothing.I'm going to ask him to leave if he keeps this up nect session.
Fuck fun vampires
One time I wanted to run a campaign with only core races and no third party. Worse, instead of one upset cunt I had 4 of 5 players present freakshit races like Tengu, CatGirl, A €%£&, and a teifling. All third party classes and one homebrew class. The 5th PC was based. Human fighter, Ex farmer. Angry about BBEC dooming his crops so now he gotta kick some ass.

>it just seem like a veiled arbitrary buff to "elite" lists
I wouldn't stay arbitrary, it's a very deliberate (if somewhat crude) move to stop the Polish spam list. Even Ariadna's got expensive dudes they can spend their points on unless you're USARF. The actual buff to elite lists is the proliferation of +1 (or more) Order units.
Isn't it the 8th?
You will whine anyway, MObaby.
Should be at around that time, yeah. Do we know at what time of the day?

Who knew Cooper was such a man of culture?
Edge of Darkness' (CoC not DH) climax is a ritual that involves each party member performing a chant that must not be interrupted - at least one person must be chanting for the ritual to succeed. I like this aspect and I'd like to keep it but my party is small (2-3). This means there's very little I can do to provide opposition that wouldn't make the task all but impossible. The room is also warded, meaning anything the Lurker does has to be from outside the room: having zombies stand outside throwing rocks and sticks doesn't feel super intimidating, but the nastier options would probably be too much for them. I'm currently brainstorming through other things the monster can do. Any ideas?
huck a dead tree like a javelin
Any of you guys run any of the stuff out of this? I am getting into CoC and horror games in general and want to run some modules that don't take too much time.
