The more goodly ones are gods of love and beauty, of intimacy and vulnerability bringing strength.

The wicked ones are often gods of war as well as love and are hungry, violent, all-consuming and corruptive.

Pretty much any sable brush you see people using to paint miniatures is good, Winsor, Raphael, Monument Hobbies, Rosemary, Russian Imports, etc, etc, etc . Trust me I've bought them all. There's honestly too many good ones atm. I'm honestly of the opinion more people should just use synthetics for 90% of their work and sable blends or even high grade synthetics after that. The perk of high level sables is working with watercolor level stuff. Base value and selection I'd say is Rosemary only issue is shipping time outside the UK. I love their blend 401 series and also own their high grade golden taklon, kolinsky sable, red sables.

You are a coward from a species of cowards. This is not an insult, its a fact. Your species has a highly developed aversion to physical danger and the prospect of pain and death. They are not stupid or illogical, but intelligence is a tool and it's driven primarily by fear. Furniture made by your species has soft edges, after all a hard edge could hurt someone. It's system of morality is based around the commonality of fear, empathy towards to fears of others and a desire to make a world which is as free of peril.

The fact that you are out beyond your homeland means that you are an anomally among your species and abnormally brave to the point your fellows would consider you insane. For all of that, you'd still be considered a bloody coward.

You know what would make us better game designers?

If we studied irl magic and the supernatural and applied it in our games.

So let this thread be a discussion about how to use what you know about irl magic and the REAL supernatural in your own game designs, be it worldbuilding, narrative, or mechanical.

To keep discussion civil, and if you are a skeptic, use this thread as a thought experiment to suppose magic and the supernatural exist, or speculate on how the things in the links provided could be used in game. If you want to argue whether magic is real or not, make your own thread. This thread is for discussing how to integrate how magic is practiced in real life to our game designs to make them either more realistic or improved in other ways.

Some links to kick off discussion:

Haha, no. If it actually was "sometimes" they'd stop at nothing to find the right circumstances. If it was "some people" they'd stop at nothing to find those people. Remember that the US spends billions to be able to see the entire planet from space via satellites. More billions on being able to hack about a third of the world's computers. They'd spend even more to be able to see and hear everything without using machines. But they don't, because there is nothing to spend it ON. It doesn't work.
But it would be cool if it did. It would change the world.

Does food play an important factor in your games, provided that you play TTRPGs? Does it come with mechanical benefits, or do you focus solely on the flavor, no pun intended? Or is it something that you just dismiss, as nondescript 'rations' that you tick off every time you need to take a rest?

Real immortality doesn't really exist in my world, death is the strongest entity in the universe and will eventually claim everyone, that being said, death also doesn't have the same concept of time that mortals have, doesn't give a shit if a lich thinks he will live forever because eventually he will be destroyed and death doesn't mind waiting. So there are many ways to become virtually immortal because death is not in a rush.

I have one NPC that is immortal because he kept turning his old clock back one day every day when he woke up, so when he was about 60 time just stopped affecting him completely. He is a human fisherman that is 1154 years old. Completely inconsequential to any storyline, exists just to illustrate how mind over matter works in my homebrew.

Their business model was retarded, only the physical version that came on a cart/disk had you scan things in (and came with one ship, literally zero options built into the game itself, you had to scan that ship)
But the digital version unlocked everything and you didn't have to scan jack shit since you didn't have the scanner or any ships to begin with. Total blowout in terms of value. It was cheaper and you didn't need to buy toys.
>>
>>81849504
Oh, and the Switch version has starfox content that the other versions don't. So digital switch version is such a ridiculous value proposition that any other version makes no sense unless you want to collect all the toys, and even then you want the switch version that has an arwing.

So what do you really need to play Gaslands?
I have a bunch of wargaming terrain, lots of cars (a few almost done painting but most are just modded and primed). Dice of course, and I just ordered a physical book and some templates. Most players use some kind of dashboard for their cars, right? You don't really need tokens or gear counters if you make some nice dry-erase ones right?
>>
>>81849829
Yeah, you can just make your own tokens and dashboards. There are some nice ones out there, but they're just markers. The templates are really the most important thing. Even those could be printed out and glued to some cardboard if you really wanted to.
>>
>>81849931
Yeah, dice and templates are the only "mandatory" components beside the cars themselves. Beyond that you need some way to track your car's status (hull points, current gear, ammo status of certain weapons, hazard tokens, fire tokens) and terrain.

Is it true Age of Sigmar is on the decline?

I don't have the buttstrated vendetta against it most fantasy players have but it never interested me enough to buy in without friends to play with.

But my locals stopped stocking the 3rd edition starters because all they did was take up shelf space, the insular qlique that plays it has gone back to 2nd edition after GW sold a bunch of books then immediately made them redundant/not table legal and now i keep seeing stuff like pic related from fanboys.

When the die hard shills get to the point they are talking about "what to fix" thats usually a sign the copes ran out in my experience.

I know its fallen off the list of top selling tabletop games but why was third edition such a flop to cause all this?

-also this is a real question/thread fuck off that guy with his shark jpgs.

>ok I want something cleared up: is it true that by the end point of warhammer fantasy (and even before all that End Times stuff) the playerbase was so small
The game was deliberately destroyed by GW who knew they were shitcanning it and tried to drain every last drop of blood from the players, making it effectively impossible for any new players to get in unless they had a generous trust fund
>that compared to 40k the least played armies there (Sisters of Battle was the example I was given) beat out the majority of WHF armies, even some of the popular ones?
Whether or not that's true, and I doubt that in the case of Sisters it would be as GW didn't even want you to buy them, but all they had to do was release some new models. The new models would sell while the old ones obviously didn't as there were now no new players. This is easily provable by looking at what sold from AOS. Was it the old warhammer lines or the new ones? It was the new ones, because of course it was. Nothing has even been released for AOS that couldn't have been released for warhammer.
Bretonnians for example hadn't had a new army book in several editions or any new models at all yet apparently received a total redesign which was canned. You can't leave any product on the shelf for more than decade, give it literally zero promotion then blame the people who never even knew it existed for not buying it, or those who did buy it for not buying it again.

How do I mitigate Reflex as the top tier stat in mekton
>>
>>81850028
You’re asking the wrong person, all the love to MektonBro and all but he seems to believe reflexes being a god stat is a feature not a bug.
As for how to mitigate it, one method is to comb through the reflexes skill list and reassign certain skills to other stats. It’s not much but it helps.
Another that I did one time is to just say fuck it, go all in, and embrace the stupid: all PCs get 10 reflexes off the bat and their CPs are for customizing the REST of their character.
