>Your party comes across a Paladin with a gun having just recently massacred and eaten a village of people for being selfish
Be honest: is there any action too edgy for your fellow Paladin-bros to accept it? It seems like most Paladins exist for guilt-free genocide and torture.

>they have a lot of overlap between their paint ranges.
I can see them downsizing for that reason but I doubt it would be a bright idea to downsize in a way that eliminates the direct equivalents to old Citadel/Current citadel paints.

Here's hoping the Euro-anons here can provide feedback on paints that are known to be more difficult to work with like yellow, orange, white, and sometimes red. Especially when they get to have the products a month in advance for us unfortunate North Americans.

>or did you mean various ways of shading using different types fo paint
this. ultimately it doesn't matter what paints or techniques you use to arrive at that point, but you have to place the shadow and highlights in the right places to visually communicate the surface texture of what you are painting. So in this context I was talking about where shadows are cast.

A few of the other early games had them, but you can tell they wanted to give every job in FFV a sort of 'signature weapon'. And with so many classes, you had to have a lot of weapons.
I always liked that about FFV. Unfortunately, it makes some of the later FFs feel somewhat barren of collectables.
Shame there wasn't a flail among the 12 legendary weapons.

its about as worth it as lascannons used to be in tac squads back in 3E. pricey, but when you need to crach armor you need to crack armor. unfortunately the votann dont have a lot of great heavy weapon platforms. sagitaurs pack decent guns but they're squishy as all hell at 130 for a 9 wound buggy. the land fortress is good but at 300 you really cant spam it. pioneers can cover light armor like some light skimmers but struggle against anything with a decent save and AoC since most of their shots are ap-1 autocannons. hearthguard are short range and swingy, either relying on a low number of shots or lucky mortals on 6s to hit, berserks will never make it into combat unless your opponent lets them, they're slow, made of paper, and have no good transport options. thunderkyn have....okay weapons, they're really better at killing MEQ than tanks, and frankly all 3 heavy units, the thunderkyn, hearthguard, and berserks are now so expensive its going to be hard to justify them over just taking more hearthkyn other than filling rule of cool slots. hearthkin are just a great swiss army knife unit that can kit out for anti horde, anti MEQ, anti armor, anything you need.

so short answer, yes.

Cool, what about the frigates? Toulons?
>>
>>86200176
Probably but its less clear. You absolutely need the 2 NOrleans to play the game but you can't do much with the remaining 2 hulls. Both Taipei and Toulon want to be run in squads of 3+ and the others are redundant in small games.
Frankly, UCM Frigates are not great and tend to be replaced by Destroyers in serious lists. 3 Toulon are worth building for the Command Card but otherwise I wouldn't expect to keep them. Max out your NO builds, take a couple Lima, and dump the rest into Taipei. You'll be leaning on Kyiv and Havana in bigger games.

Who else loves the psychic class in games? Not in DnD of course, magic and psionics do not mix. But in space, cyberpunk or modern settings they are a nice substitution to wizards.

Magic and Psionics can very easily differentiated. Usually with magic you need to do extra shit like chant, a focus like staff or wand, preparation if it's vancian etc. And/or a spell can only do a specific thing. But with psionics usually it doesn't require any of that. You just think or move your hand and you can do whatever your specific psychic power is.
>>
>>86184272
A wizard is a natural philosopher in a world where magic exists. It is a specialty, a thing you work towards being and being better at.
Psionic powers are a symptom of exposure to the Far Realm. Nobody deliberately sets about becoming a psychic and even the most nihilistic maniacs rarely willingly try to hone their abilities.

>>
>>86184272
>>Never understood the reasoning behind separating a wizard and an artificer, cleric, druid, sorcerer, warlock, etc when the differences between them are minimal and functionally they serve the same purpose.

The only reason DND has psionics that are essentially the same, is that later versions blurred the lines to make them more acceptable. No one ever complains about the division between arcane and divine magic, when the only functional difference is source, but toss in psionics and people bitch.

This is how I kinda picture it. It's a city with a lot of corn/crops, but not much else, & a bunch of Glitterboys which makes it hard to take.

Think about combining some of the houses together, rather than just trashing them. There could be just as much political machinations within a house as their is between the houses. After all, everyone wants to inherit the patriarch’s Glitter Boy, but only one person can.

Remember that spinning wheel edition of Candy Land?

Is there really only one randomization?
You are equally unlikely to know where a fair spin will land any given turn as you are to know what card you will draw every turn. So the randomization in terms of human knowledge is satisfied. At the same time, there is no way to determine or change what order the cards will be in before you've even shuffled them up, just as you cannot with the spinner. Oh, maybe you can choose to flick the spinner one way, or flick it another, based on what you think that might do. But if you are flicking it hard enough that you're not aiming for a particular section, is that any different from drawing a card? Do you have any choice in the matter? Is the only choice that matters the choice to open the Candyland box in the first place? Or when you decided to play a board game at all? Or when you decided to go to your friend's house? If some choices matter and some don't, what's so special about choices? On the other hand, why worry about what matters when you can still enjoy the game?

It's Candyland all the way down. The spinner is just one level of abstraction. I imagine Mersault would have preferred the version with cards, whereas the priest would prefer the spinner.
