I see tons of complaints about the current state of GW and 40k in particular. The writing style has changed, game designers kowtowing to investors and ocd tournament players rather than fleshing out a good universe etc.

Why is this? Quite simply the original creative people behind the game are long gone. So instead of complaining about it let's talk about what those people are doing now. What projects and teams are they working on?

Warcry is a skirmish game that focuses heavily on narrative set the AoS universe. Pick and choose your warband and carve them on a epic campaign for power and glory!

>its interesting to think about how cool this game is going to be when it "dies" and the fan community runs with it.
I definitely feel like the game will have a good amount of post-support homebrew. They system is simple enough that homebrewing for it is much simpler than for many of the games contemporaries. Personally I am very slowly working on a "Warcry 40,000" conversion just because I'm really enjoying how breezy and light the gameplay is and I want to get that same experience with my 40k minis.
>>72868001
I'm also very interested in this. The Trial of Champions and the new challenge battles from the ToC were both fantastic additions, and they've genuinely gotten me excited to see what they add to the game next. As someone who hopped over from Kill Team, I'm loving the amount of focus narrative play is getting with Warcry's expansions.

Ok you've got my interest. What is "Warcry 4000"?

>>72872284
It's exactly what it sounds like, It's going to be Warcry but with 40k models/factions. The plan is to even go so far as to make custom quests and possibly mission generation cards to better reflect the 40k setting too.
>>
>>72871911
I also like the sound of warcry 40000.
In part because warcry is nice and quick and also because 40k is shite.

Except there is. You'll crack, then break, and npc yourself. 0 sanity, essentially.

I love the game, haven't had a chance to run it yet but I think it's rules light enough (especially on the GM side) that I'll enjoy it, but there is enough crunch for my players.

I think its weird when people say "the core concept doesnt work." It works just fine, you just don't like it. The zombies are generally more of an environmental hazard than anything else. They just serve as an excuse to kick off the setting. And honestly, its probably the best zombie shit ive seen in awhile.

Which race do you think would be better grapplers, a race with four arms or snakepeople?
102 replies and 26 images omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>72828572
>>72828904
You're assuming 4-arms vs snek when the question wasn't "who wins" it was "who grapples better?"

A proper grappler uses all four of their limbs to assume various holds on an opponent; having two more limbs would only be more beneficial. Meanwhile a snake would only be able to grapple a portion of the opponent directly proportional to how large the snake is, and that's assuming a humanoid opponent.

Meanwhile we have to ask what handicaps we're willing to give to each hypothetical grappler. Slapping two more arms on a human isn't that much of an addition compared to taking a snake and making it two to three times its normal size. If we made a human two to three times its size it'd be a giant and would "win" this hypothetical fight outright.

Oh, oh my, alright. You don't have the core mechanic done yet, but you're trying to make sure health and combat are there along with what appears to be attributes?
Take a step back, go into a white room, and work from there. If I want to "jump over a fence" what do I have to roll and what do I add to it?

You're rushing way far ahead than you need to, you're on step 5 without thinking about 1-4. Get your core mechanic set up first then ask for assistance, you say you want low numbers, but you also have +5's and +2's spread throughout the character races.

>>72872458
By the core mechanic, I assume you mean similar to the one that exists in D&D. Everything I've been doing so far has been operating under the assumption of rolling d20s against DCs for skill checks. When I said I haven't decided on the dice I'm using, I just meant that's not set in stone and it could change if a different dice denomination ends up being more balanced. I don't want to just decide that part arbitrarily and have it be set in stone without any of the context of the rest of the system.

I appreciate you trying to make sense of the racial bonuses I posted, but I wasn't really expecting anybody to. You were lacking a lot of critical information there. The way skills work, penalties for some skills are harsher than penalties to others. Skill balance is completely separate from damage and health balance in this system, so I didn't even think it was worth mentioning skills at all, but I do have a fully functional skill system.

Here's how skills work, which might provide more context to what was posted earlier.

When I said I don't have the full rules yet, the main things I'm missing is basically how the flow of battle works, with initiative and the like. I don't really have a system for that yet.

Awhile back I read the Alex Verus series and it inspired me to whip up a super easy system for magic where players could make their own abilities, the only restrictions put on the magic were it had to be within their elemental/thematic domain. I have the notebook somewhere, and it was pretty much planned out as a rule-lite game.

Is there a rules-lite system that already does this? I looked at ARS Magica (I think that was the name) but I wanted something simpler, where everything was decided by at most 3d6.

When Abbadon was written the evil primarchs were more concerned with the eternal game of chaos (fucking each other over) or moping in their insane fortresses in the Eye.

They showed up once every three thousand years or so on personal missions of petty revenge before being put down by grey knights or space wolves.

The mortals inherited their fathers war, and Abbadon was the greatest of the surviving heretics.

Of course all this lore and theming went down the tubes with the reintroduction of traitor primarchs as lucid and capable forces so Abbadon no longer makes any sense.
