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.
What would be people be able to do with this energy?

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.

What do you have against Sanderson? His stuff is based!
If I were to create a new original fantasy magic system in hopes of being an enjoyable alternative to D&D I would probably make it modular allowing spellcasters to create somewhat custom spells, with different categories of modules being somewhat more available to different specialty casters then a sliding scale amount of unpredictability happening at casting time based on different probabilities for arcane casters and dm discretion for divine casters according to the agenda of the patron.

why not just... make your own fantasy race?
what's the point in putting a "spin" on "old" races?
your idea of a dwarf, of an elf, of a whatever, probably isn't anything like either the traditional or modern (as in 20th century and forward) interpretation, so why call it one?
Making your own race is better, because you have full control over the theme(s), aesthetic, and gameplay design.
At the bare-minimum you shouldn't be remixing stuff from D&D, geez louise. Just get better source material
For those of you who HAVE designed one (or two, or three, etc.) what are they like?

create really strange people
remember that a playable race will never not be a human at the fundamental level; it's not like your group, irl, is made up of space aliens
Why are they speaking english?
Not a bad idea. What are the chances that someone would recognize the Lashunta, Syrinx, Wyrwood or any other really obscure Pathfinder race.
Why are you?

I have a problem /tg/ my playgroup seems to always have characters stock piled and thought up for future sessions and shit. I don't really have that, maybe for a specific campaign in case my current one dies but I never have a stockpile of characters to just be able to use anywhere.

My problem is I feel that brings about characters that could be too generic and not fit in with the campaign the best, am I alone on this? I prefer making a character after I learn what the setting is instead of just having several character sheets I can pull out.
I mostly DM but yeah, I would rather learn the setting and see about fitting a character into it than have one that has no attachments other than their only personal goal that might never come up
I don't think it's a bad idea to have characters ready, but they should just be a draft you can add the finishing touches once you learn about the setting.
Cute Bernie

I don't think there's a problem with that as long as you actually discuss it with the players

You're a golem boning an eldritch abomination? Your child will be a perfectly fine human baby. The eldritch abomination is male and golem's tool is a glorified strap-on? Doesn't matter, it's magic, i ain't gonna explain shit. How does baby even get born? A stork, i don't give a fuck, it just happens. And let's face it, with monsters, ancient war machines and adventurers roaming around, it'll be a miracle your child would live to ripe old age of 12, and if he does, congratulations, he can quickly have a kid with that dragon over there before fatally mutating into a lump of flesh.

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?
35 replies and 5 images omitted. Click here to view.
Honestly 90% of the fan made content was shit anyway.

Text to speech sucks balls
The lore videos suck balls
Lots of the art sucks balls
Some of those animations were kind of neat, but not neat enough to really care. They were never going to replace the gap for actual content.

So over all I think this policy change isn't really that bad.

Though I would thoroughly encourage all of you to not give GW money through their shitty Warhammer+ money grab. Because the only thing worse than the fan content will be their shitty pay per view content.
That's why cops always try to outnumber you, so the other ones can beat the shit out of you at best or shoot you at worst if you pull that shit.

I'm not saying that's how things ought to be, that's just how they are.
There are IIIA masks and visors and Eurocops have access to level 4 ceramic gorgets.
Who cares you GW pay pigs aren't gonna stop spreading your cheeks for them.

There's something extremely based about the Skaven, their very psyche lacks any of the weaknesses that cause leftism, making their society immune to its taint. They are free of feelings of inferiority which are the root of leftist thought, they instinctively hate non-Skaven meaning that leftist self-flagellation is impossible in a Skaven and a big reason why they are so successful is that they put their women to better use than any other race in the setting and their psychology means that a Skaven simp that would protest about this is impossible.

Did this real fast but it’s close_enough.jpg
I wouldn’t say it was overly distracting, but when you’re talking about At’s abilities and deck options while a ln unrelated burst explanation shows onscreen was a little jarring because I’m used to Voice Talks About Card -> Card Shows Up On Screen. I might be an outlier but a separate segment or video of just the game is something I’d be interested in, while broader explanation of the decks could have just played over a game with the graphics focusing on the cards you were overviewing. If you ever had the time, or this was something you were interested in, playing two games and picking the least interesting one for topic B roll while the more interesting one got it’s own walkthrough would be cool.

I thought it was good though. Showed a game playing out in its entirety, explained the decks really well, advised about gameplay. Would be great if this helped people get into the game as we approach November, and I want to see what else you put out on it.

Been enjoying your other vids too. Good work.
>but when you’re talking about At’s abilities and deck options while an unrelated burst explanation shows onscreen was a little jarring because I’m used to Voice Talks About Card -> Card Shows Up On Screen
Yeah, that's what I was worried about. I figured talking over some gameplay would be easier (and faster) than putting together a full slide show, but then I got kind of carried away. I would love to do more gameplay on their own, but between my potato camera and the trouble actually finding people to play with, that's kind of a distant goal.
>If you ever had the time, or this was something you were interested in, playing two games and picking the least interesting one for topic B roll while the more interesting one got it’s own walkthrough would be cool.
The games themselves don't take much time to record, it's all the editing afterwards. And script-writing. So that's actually a doable idea. But again, there's the issues with doing gameplay vids right now.

Thank for the feedback!
Hahaha don’t care for Hirana?

You can have very limited versions of these. Levitation instead of Fly. Some type of teleportation within 100' and line of sight, x% chance of teleporting into the ground so frequent use is guaranteed death. Divination with one Yes/No question, and the Greater Powers twist words and interpretations more than a Critical Race Theorist.

As Gandalf said, 'I found myself suddenly faced by something that I have not met before. I could think of nothing to do but to try and put a shutting-spell on the door. I know many; but to do things of that kind rightly requires time, and even then the door can be broken by strength.'

Oh boy, how exciting. You boiled down a mysterious force down to an incredibly limited number of predetermined and highly numerical effects that literally cannot be used for anything else. D&D magic sucks, get fucked.
>a mysterious force
Literal brainlet take, maybe it's mysterious to tard martials, but to wizards there should be nothing mysterious about magic
>muh martials vs characters
>muh science magic
D&D has put holes in your brain.
No that was the car accident
It would be better if they actually designed the game to require time between adventures to do stuff. Fighters could train and repair their equipment, rogues build connections and casters could work on long rituals. It would really balance the absurd spells if they require weeks or months of work beforehand

I must have made a Dozen Giant threads over the years but now I have a really good reason.

I finally want to make or Run a campaign setting with Giants as a major campaign point or theme. I'm gonna try to avoid the "Giants are rare" or "Giants had a great empire and it died out long ago," deal, because I'm wanting to implement them as an organic and tangible threat, real in your face kinda deal. Giants with cities and towns, Giant diplomats, Giant tactics.

I also kinda want to avoid defaulting to DnD's "Elemental" giants. Like, sure I can see a Fire Giant mage or blacksmith or something but not a whole caste of Fire giants, since WotC Paizo and TSR kinda did that to death.

So, What's up, got any cool giant ideas, cool concepts for Giants or giant societies?
