Hadn't heard of them and assumed they were like the typical SS assholes, but apparently they were conscripted and put under the SS instead of being indoctrinated nuts. Still had some of them help guard while germans did a concentration camp purge, but one war crime with few people involved is the best I've seen of any unit with SS in the name. Unit wise kinda interesting, and some fun defensive options with dug in Panthers (which seem a bit cheap for FV Panthers as well). Their special rules certainly make them want to defend.

Previous Thread: >>66776941

This is a general thread for Dropzone Commander and Dropfleet Commander sci-fi wargames, created by Hawk Wargames and currently published by TTCombat. Dropzone Commander is a 10mm scale sci-fi wargame focusing on highly air-mobile futuristic forces and objective-oriented scenarios. Dropfleet Commander is its fleet-scale companion game, featuring spaceships in close orbit over a planet, battling for control of ground assets and orbital installations.

The thing that gives me hope is, I just showed the minis from Dropfleet around to my boardgaming crowd (mostly euros), none of them have ever showed any interest in miniature gaming beyond stuff like Bloodrage, and they went fucking nuts for the dropfleet range. They thought the Shaltari a bit silly, but fucking loved the UCM, PHR and even the scourge range got a few appreciative comments. Not much, but its the first ever positive reponse I've had with a wargame from that crowd.
>>
>>66858417
Nothing compared to the entire Resistance Hovercraft rules section in Phase 1 being literally a copy-paste of Shaltari gate rules......
>>
>>66858654
It helps they're stupid easy to paint. The worst thing I've had was painting all the little gravity generator things on the PHR ships and that's nothing compared to cranking out a 100 imperial guardsmen. The vast majority of the ships can be hit with two colors and a wash and look great. Hell these are my half finished ships and I'd probably be fine with Fielding them as is. You could knock out a starter box in a weekend easy.

What the shit? They seem to have updated the Strikehawk to be slower (16 instead of 24) and lose half of the troop capability (2 bases instead of 4), AND still cost 120 points. No fucking thanks, that's worse than the Lifthawk and APCs for 6 squads.

How does your setting handle anti-magic? An individual and opposite force to magic that exists independently and renders magic inert, passively or actively? An attribute of living or sapient beings to resist direct magical effects to a degree? A subset of magic and thus only usable by casters, making them invaluable in any party, army or court? A case-by-case matter of counter-rituals and neutralizing agents? Absent entirely?

There are two major kinds. The first belongs to those who maintain a skepticism of magic's ability to influence them. These people tip their fedora's so hard that they produce a psychic aura around them that negates all* magical and outside psychic abilities that would have an impact on them.

*They have a supply of points, the stronger the magical effect the more points it drains, should they run out it represents their incredible willpower/stubbornness being worn down and them becoming vulnerable.

The second kind is actually an extremely rare mutation that occurs within an already mutant strain of humanity. People who have this mutation are effectively batteries of "negative energy", naturally disrupting supernatural abilities called near him. At a young age this usually just negates minor effects, but as they get older and through repeat exposure to the supernatural, eventually the nullifier can just be a dead magic zone who's not even aware he's a dead magic zone.

>>66857766
It’s a sub category of magic that requires ONLY learning anti magic.
Very specialized field, that offers a a comfortable life in any nation.
>>
Theres only three things that could be seen as anti-magic. One is imposing your will over the effect of a magical working to deny it which is extremely difficult to do. Another is through pacts, curses and the like that forbid certain things from happening or be completed. The last one is by manipulating the flow of leylines to reduce ambient strangeness which may make completing complex rituals harder to impossible.

In all cases it's not really anti-magic but rather magic smothering magic in a way that appears uneventful to the untrained eye.
>>
>>66857766
Antimagic, dispel magic and counterspell are 3 things that break magic in D&D and should be banned.

Clearly you two just hate fun. How long have people complained about monks not getting ranged ki attacks? Since 3.0 dropped. Yet when it happens people still complain. Personally I love getting ranged cantrips I can use as an attack action, it means I can apply more damage to one target or split it up as needed, and I can do it without expending ki unless I want it to be much more powerful. Because I kind of like the idea of getting an 8d6 damage fireball that replenishes on a short rest, not to mention a 10 damage counter attack (Wisdom will be 20 by level 17, don't kid yourself) that's free to use and affects literally everything that hits me in melee.

Fucking wish it was adding 30ft to martial arts, is a ranged spell attack (but not Casting a spell), which means that if you use that with an enemy adyacent you get disadvantage. You don't benefit from melee attack bonuses, monk weapon damage, etc

Well, people have confirmed there is something there, but those people are usually doing so in a panic while screaming about the “giant F**king lizard tried to eat me!!”

Rumor has it their forbidden magics give them unseen eyes and ears in every settlement, and it has been many generations indeed since a petty warlord was brazen enough to launch an assault on one of their ice vaults. Perhaps the other race's sole consolation is that each is far too insular and frail to venture too far from their isolated library-fortresses, and their lore-keepers would rather die than part with their hard-won knowledge of the dark arts.
>>
>>66857865
Okay, let's try this.
Interspecies breeding is possible with all races, but only through an exertion of will by connecting souls and overwhelming the other. If not done willingly, it can be potentially lethal if failed.
>>
>>66857750
Ah, I see. You too wish for more "how would X fare in 40k" threads. I shall be right back, going to go make a new one.
>>
>>66858628
Because of this, half-breeds are rare and pitied and hated in equal measure by their more pure counterparts. However, the more successful an attempt at cross-breeding is, the more of both race’s strengths and less of each one’s weaknesses the result will have, resulting in what some deem to be the best of both worlds. Sadly, the inverse is also possible and barring some carefully managed lineages, far more common in pairings.

The more different two species are, the more challenging hybrid production is, but the greater the discrepancy between each race’s power, the easier it becomes. Legend has it that in the distant past, the various penguin bloodlines were spawned from the Star Gods in this way, and rather than reject the myth for its unsavory implications, the flightless birdfolk take great pride in it.

> Humans aren’t native to the world, but were stranded there when a spaceship belonging to a hyper-advanced civilization in another dimension was caught in a rift and crashed into the temperate southlands. Unable to return home, the thousands-strong crew of the vessel repurposed their technology to kickstart an Industrial Age civilization that lasted almost three centuries before the unobtanium generators malfunctioned beyond repair, and their once magnificent empire fractured into several nation-states warring over the world’s tragically scant mineral deposits and what little scraps of functional god-tech remained.
> Initially, these nation-states separated based around their disparate priorities of enabling free-capitalism, preserving past relics, and ensuring mankind endures, but time has seen them decline into a corporate-plutocracy built on wage slavery, a cargo cultist theocracy backed by a trove of impossibly powerful and irreplaceable weapons, and a dozen loosely-aligned oft-skirmishing feudal kingdoms. Centuries of atrocities have caused the aforementioned factions to hate one another more than any non-humans, and an endless cold war is their norm.
> Aside from bits and pieces of half-functioning future-tech, humanity has by and large regressed to the late Iron Age. Rudimentary bolt-action rifles and revolvers are deployed by the minority of plate armored land-owning men able to supply the requisite black-powder, and the overwhelming majority of the remainder make do with crossbows, pike formations, and padded gambesons. Humans are notable for their utter lack of magic potential and a cleverness that many magic users deem wasted, but are otherwise unremarkable compared to the native races, and each of their societies is slowly losing territory in concert with their technological decline.

The second was made for give rules to a ruleless thing, but i later discovered that the interest of others was quite low even if i polish it from time to time.
The third is a variaton from the first and is post apocaliptic.

4e has seen a large comeback of players migrating from 5e or just openly admitting that they never stopped playing it in the first place, even beyond /tg/
4e was only largely unpopular among the 3.5 crowd which was the established playerbase at the time, but now that its popularity has been greatly overshadowed by 5e and 3.5 has died down it's no longer the cool thing to do to hate on 4e, specially since the lack of content and limited flexibility of 5e has left a lot of the longer time 5e DMs and players wanting more, which 4e can easily provide since it's much more similar to 5e than 3.5 is. It's a complicated and backwards thing, but it's what I've observed. The only people actively hating on 4th edition right now are 3.5 grogs, which have been overrun by the new blood brought on by 5e.

It is new, previously you couldn't get within miles of the pit, and there's a river that was considered the point of no return because the river itself is so tainted that it invariably causes Jade to melt instantly and anyone trying to cross it to go insane and drown themselves. Touching it at all is instant death, and even if you did somehow get past it, the taint ramps up exponentially.
