Due to my player's demands, I'm running a homebrew game where Women are "living weapons." And I sorta want to know the societal and economic implications if women were for whatever reason, the predominantly living weapons/fighters, while a minority are men. Would it just be a gender-inverse of our history? Society being matriarchal rather than patriarchal?

How do you feel about Gods of opposing principles.

IE instead of a "god of beauty" and a separate "god of ugliness", there is a single "god of beauty and ugliness" who women might pray to to help them find a husband or maybe to curse a rival with warts on her face. After all, if a god is the god of beauty, then wouldn't ugliness just be the god withholding or undoing their favor?

For a more controversial example, instead of there being a god of good and a god of evil, there would be a god of good and evil who establishes the laws and then sends out his minions to tempt mortals to do evil so that they can be judged.

There's a setting (The Diamond Throne) where the local not-halflings do this. They all pray to hundreds of gods, and they're constantly "discovering"( inventing) new ones, and anyone can be a priest of anything. It's a little lolrandumb but it's honestly a lot of fun in play.

Anon above you has a point. Deities are associated with concepts and have spheres as we call them, it's not rare for them to switch places or change influences.
Famous examples: Tyr the sky father became the honorable warrior, and Amun the principle of hidden invisibility of the watery-airy dark (Nun, Heh, and Kek, respectively) chaos turned in a god of kings and the sun.

The game is set right after some big Calamity, which is never properly defined, but it's the explanation for why the videogame is so videogamey (i.e, it explains why there are linear paths just hanging out in the open, and it explains why most of the people were dead). But 50 years before that there was a war.

The Cael are technologically-superior pioneers from across the sea. They're building a great wall to keep out the Ura.

The Ura are subterranian asians and are basically the oppressed natives of the setting, though they might have been the ones who started the war, because they didn't like the Cael building train lines over their homes

The Calamity is the real center of the plot, but the Calamity was caused by Cael, because they wanted some kind of superweapon to drive the Ura out of their tunnel-cities.

Which leads me to my favorite thing from Bastion lore.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o3SZee4YZX8
(Please keep in mind that this is from 2011, it's obviously about a fantasy-wild-west-Vietnam and has nothing to do with Trump's wall or with tunneling Mexicans).

If I can really only pick one "piece of lore", though, it's the fact that these dudes are called gasfellas. I fucking love these dudes and I fucking love that they're called gasfellas. Now whenever I see any sort of generic genie-creature that trails off below the waist I think of it as a gasfella.

Would you play in a games workshop?

Why does it seem like so many people, both DM's and players, are against doing an evil campaign? I've yet to meet anyone at my local shop or through friends that would entertain the idea. Hell most say before even being asked that they wouldn't run or play in one. Are people just incapable of separating the game from real life? What's the deal?

You may as well just be good aligned in that case. It's also a lot less compelling, you can't really give a villainous PC much nuance if they're full on self serving evil. If they're motivated by something outside themselves the same story could work with good PCs and will probably work more easily.

Evil campaigns just tend to be shallow power fantasies pushed by people who want a license to be dickneads to NPCs without any consequences.

Something like Nox from wakfu could work, the well intentioned but deluded villain? Again though, the reluctant adventurer trope works just as well for a pair of bards raising money for an orphanage.

Maybe the better qudstion is: Why do you want to play an evil campaign? What do you think it will have over a good one?
>>
>>77747433
>Why does it seem like so many people, both DM's and players, are against doing an evil campaign?
Because these nearly always end with bullshit, betrayal, and hurt feelings all before even the 4th session. And those sessions that are played out will be mentally, physically, and emotionally exhausting ordeals that will suck all joy and enthusiasm for the hobby.

Because they are almost always rooted in some player’s deep-seeded need to fulfill some power fantasy and think having an “evil” sticker on their character excuses all their actions from consequences, when really it doesn’t.

There are exceptions, I even GM’d one such game. But on the whole they really are horrible and short lived experiences that only sound good on paper, and not in practice.

You know that I speak the truth, but since it’s not what you want to hear you will likely dismiss and disregard my response. But doing so will not change the outcome.

>>77747433
Because being evil involves weilding the power you have for your own enjoyment and taking pleasure at the misery you cause. Those types of people, unless they weild ultimate power (which never happens in level based roleplaying games), rarely live for long because they usually end up facing the consequences of their actions.
>>
>>77747433
The most fun Evil character I played was Neutral Evil. He was just a giant schoolyard bully, and an ENORMOUS prat. He was also basically unstoppable.
At one point I broke a man's hands, and told him that I'd let him escape his hanging if he just untied his noose. Later, I told a mother that I'd let her kids live if she jumped me and overpowered me. I also offered a farmboy 'one free shot' at me, when I had Stoneskin on.

The fun part was insisting, like a complete bell-end, that he'd given them a chance. They just didn't WANT it enough.

Sure, within the context of the book he tries to justify it, but by all accounts he really shouldnt have been able to do that if you treat power levels like they matter.

Abnett writes dumb action movies, fun, but still riddled with contrivances and overpowered protagonists effortlessly defeating enemies who should have them dead to rights.

All barbarian/something multiclass party. The characters are all relgious tribalists, so only their own specific tribe is *worthy* enough to follow their specific patron god. If they tried to convince someone else to follow their god they would be *insulting* their god, and also their own people.
