>What is Genesys?
Released in November 2017, Genesys is a pen-and-paper generic RPG system and toolkit by Fantasy Flight Games, using a refined version of the system presented by their Star Wars RPGs (Edge of the Empire, Age of Rebellion, Force and Destiny). Its central mechanic is the Narrative Dice System, using pools made of specialized dice to create narrative results. The intention is for the system to be a highly flexible narrative system, adaptable to most any conceivable setting and premise.

>The Expanded Player's Guide and official GM screen will release later this year; a setting splat for Keyforge should see release in Q2 2020

Clearly his kink is denial
Shit like this triggers my autism.
What an awful interior layout. The only way to get from the crew quarters to anywhere is to either go through engineering or the infirmary, and even then everything is at the very end of a looooong hallway, and the mess hall is on a completely different floor from the crew quarters and is only accessible from the cargo hold. The crew quarters don’t need to be nearly that big, it’s a cargo hauler, not a fucking luxury yacht, make them each half the size, put the mess hall upstairs, and have more accessways to the fucking bridge so you don’t have to loop down to the very end of the fucking ship and back up to the other in the event of an emergency.
This is worse than those fucking stupid future apartment ships people post where you have to go through bedrooms to get to other rooms, have random chairs and consoles in the middle of hallways, or don’t even have bathrooms, but ‘tards keep jizzing themselves over.

Just connect that central hallway connect over to the stairwell that connects to the bridge. The mess hall doesn't seem necessary as the individual rooms appear to have dining areas, so you could probably cut it out entirely and just have extra cargo space.

Stop right there.

You all need to stop making overpowered custom cards. If all you are gonna do is make it an instant wincon, you've failed entirely. Custom cards aren't supposed to be op as hell, this thing is a 6 mana flying double striking 3/6 that doesn't allow instants and lets you cast aura and equipment with flash, and lets you bypass aura/equipment costs.
It would be ban-hammered immediately with this much bullshittery. Not to mention the cringey waifu angel art you decided to use. Its not cool, its just fucking gay.
Make things with taste and substance, not just cringefuck "instant bombs".

You are most likely dealing with a sorcerer 5/dread witch 4 build. Such a build still runs into issues with creatures that are immune to mind-affecting effects (since greater master of terror bypasses only immunity to fear, and not immunity to mind-affecting effects).

That is a character level 9th full spellcaster. Save-or-lose spells are a dime a dozen. Your issue is not with fear effects, but save-or-lose spells in general. If you were not dealing with fear save-or-lose, you would be dealing with some other form of save-or-lose, such as Glitterdust or Baleful Polymorph or what-have-you.

The issue of save-or-lose is deeply rooted into D&D 3.5 and is rather difficult to address without touching on the foundations of the system. Removing save-or-lose from the system is easier said than done.

Incidentally, Intimidate builds are usually more effective than fear spell builds, because they are often no save, simply lose.

In fact, here is a convenient list of save-or-be-screwed spells in 3.5:


Save-or-lose effects are deeply ingrained into 3.5, and there is no simple way to excise them.
Just make Bane from Dota and make them experience real fear. Nightstalker works too
>pulls some backwater class that negates it
Clarify, or I'll just assume that it's another 3.5 bitch thread by someone who doesn't actually play. Also, we need to know if you want help, and if you don't want help, why are you here for any other reason than bitching?

I could see its uses, especially if the party wants to set up on a big fight and you need to geek the caster or the troubling looking one.
You just don't use the actual class assassin. You want to simulate the effects of the class using a full caster, hopefully without giving up too much other stuff. For example, the spell Hunter's Eye gives 1d6 sneak attack per 3 caster levels and has a range of personal, so with one level of spelldancer you can persist it. You can do the same thing with spells that give extra natural attacks for more sneak attacking. Classes like spellwarp sniper, unseen seer, anima mage, and the generic spellcaster can also grant regular sneak attack which stacks with the spell. For sneaking you really just look for feats, races, and spells that give bonuses.
Wizards don't get 6th-level spells until a whoopin' lvl 12, and a normal maximum of 6 spells per day, which would be at the cost of all other spells, and Disintegrate can be resisted with both Spell Resistance and Saving Throws.

No, Wizards have some neat tricks, but they are awful assassins.

That said, a high-end high-level assassin qith a high-profile target would be clever to have Disintegrate prepared some way, even if it's just 1/day from an item. Dead things don't get a saving throw, so it's lly an amazing way to dispose of bodies. In addition to wiping out evidence, it makes it impossible to resurrect by most means. I think only True Resurrection, a 9th-level spell that usually costs a minimum of 25 000 gp, is the only way.
Just my .02, but monks always made sense to me as the perfect assassins. You can't take their weapons from them, they're extremely physically capable to an absurd degree, massive resistances,
>Is it even possible to make a good, spellcasting assassin in 3.5?
Yeah, it's called Assassin. Assassin is actually a great rogue PrC, and probably actually the best Ckre PrC, and they get some limited spellcasting.

If what you're after is full spellcasting, though, more akin to awizard, I'm sad to say no, though. The closest I can think of (which honestly would be pretty baller) would be to be a wizard or duskblade or whatever, get Move Silently & Hide as Class Skills (easy), pick up Assassin, pick up Spellthief, and then take the Master Spellthief feat, and possibly Practiced Spellcaster depending on your reading, and boom, you have a ton of low-to-mid spells at full caster level, and a bunch of unique spells from Assassin.

You'll have trouble hitting shit, though, probably. It's not going to be very rogue-ish.

Murder mystery sounds amazing.
I'm glad that you stuck around to read replies.
If you want some actual advice try this:
Come up with some loose story beats, but keep everything malleable. Come up with more plot hooks than you need as you don't want players to be forced into biting hooks that don't interest them.
Be ready to fold emerging storylines back into the beats that you've come up with.
Encourage players to discuss ideas about what is happening in the story and be ready to fold good ideas into the broader storyline.
Develop things that excite your players and abandon things that don't.
A scion of a prominent noble family has died, his beheaded body has been found.
The family are suspicious but others believe the death to be accidental, or a random act of violence.
The players are hired to uncover the truth.
The players start by examining the site of the death for clues.
Many clues lead to dead ends or turn out to be red herrings (each culminating in a combat or social encounter).
Some of the clues lead to a wider conspiracy that the noble was involved with.
Perhaps the noble was part of a slaver-ring, perhaps he was plotting against another noble family, perhaps he was secretly a spy for the ruler and was himself investigating an enemy of the state infiltrating the city, perhaps there is a dark cult that the noble stumbled upon?
The noble family who hired the players insist on the players uncovering the person who ordered the death of their relative.
Maybe there is a twist? Maybe the person who ordered the death is another member of the same family? Or a corrupt officer of the city guard? Or another NPC who has 'helped' the players through the adventure?
Alternatively, maybe the noble was killed by a serial killer and the players embark on a hunt for a twisted monster which draws inspiration from films like Se7en?

The stone in Stone Men refers to silicon, as in they are organic intelligence, created artificially. I like to think of them like the Thirteenth Tribe from 'Battlestar Galactica', the organic cylons who left Kobol and began their own civilisation. ''

except they are. Have you read the recent lore? there's still a clusterfuck, but its basically isolated to piltover and zaun. Everywhere else is basically high fantasy, including targon and shurima.
Your list is fucking garbage except for Rocket Knight Adventures
It wasn't constraining at all and scrapping it was dumb and lazy.
>make no attempt to tie its settings together

But that's wrong. Ionia's current form is the direct result of Noxian invasion. Shurima is a shattered nation whose traditional boundaries are being challenged by Noxian outposts. Piltover is literally built on top of Zaun's suffering. Bilgewater's piracy is the only thing preventing Noxian trade from forming a hegemony over the world.
i felt that lore was a major downgrade for xerath.
i cant recall if they mentioned him being anything other than a good slave to azir, but before he was basically the worlds best mage who was trying to merge with the weave of lol, and because others were afraid that it would go wrong they stopped him causing it to fuck up, and turn shurima into a desert.
i just dont see why they had to fuck with xerath like that.

It also makes them good blasters oddly enough. Shrouds can be typed to thunder giving them easy access to resounding thunder and lyrandar, on top of invoked shrouds dealing the damage to everyone targeted with a burst or blast.

By RAW Assassin's Shrouds benefit from "extra damage" boosts (such as vulnerability taps) and they are in fact slightly above average strikers.

"Slightly above average" given some work at paragon and above, though certain badly-worded multiattack powers can really help here.
So, I've never liked Essentials "subclasses", but can anons clear something up for me? Can the AEDU "Base Classes" take spells belonging to their Essentials Subclasses?

Like, if I'm playing a PHB2 Sorcerer, can I take the spells from the Elementalist in Heroes of the Elemental Chaos?

Yes, so long as the power in question has a level. It is very difficult to pick up powers without a level (e.g. Dual Weapon Attack); usually, that is something for paragon multiclassing (e.g. avenger paragon multiclass ranger for Dual Weapon Attack, though whether or not this is worthwhile is up for debate).
