How prudish or promiscuous is the general Imperium?

How does the regimental commissar respond to his troops hanging up pinup girl photos in the barracks? How would people look on the local Astropath publicly dating? How much scandal would be caused by the ship’s captain and Navigator having an open relationship?

show me a single source saying there's a (eglitarian) democracy
>>
>>73650826
There are a number of them in the novels, but it is unclear whether they are accountable to the entire population, or (more likely) just the upper class/nobles.

The original point though was that the High Lords, or even the Sector/Subsector Lords don't actively get involved in the selection of Planetary Governors unless the tithes are not paid, so full democracy is theoretically possible, though unlikely given the massive wealth disparity on the typical Imperial world.

>>73651726
considering the main mindset of the imperium is a medieval one I dont think there are any liberal worlds so to speak where democracy or the common folk have any say. Just fuffiling the duty they inherited.

Not in the sense modern westerners understand transexuality. It is mostly used in Iran to make gay men women, not from the respect for the person. That actually stems from skythian practisces.

/Tag/ tell us about the most heinous act one of your characters did.

Pathfinder 1e btw:

>Be local lord, having since a while a big problem with the local crime lords selling new magic mushrooms since a while
>While the addicts are not aggressive, they lay around like vegetables, gives our kingdom bad reputation
>How the fuck do I fix this?
>Get told a princess from the northern borders requested persistently for a audience, wanting funds to help the drug addicts
>There are no princesses, as far as we recognize in the north, just barbarian hordes and their witches
>Fuck it, might perhaps be a cheap way to solve the issue
>Some woman comes in, I do recognize her by description to be part of an adventurer group that helped with some previous issues beforhand, though never meet her in person
>I could have sworn the room temperature dropped when she came in
>While dressed up to look like a princess and following all the etiquette, something is just odd
>Tells me she wants to create a charity to help out with the local drug issues, she knows a local alchemist willing to sell medical goods for cheap and in bulk
>Why the hell not, seems so far raither straight forward, makes me look good and solves perhaps the issue

Why use a square grid where your guys can only move in four directions when you can use a hexagonal grid and move in six?

this gets needlessly complex imo. i use hexes which are 3x+ the size of a single units base for more fluid movement and allow placement anywhere in the hex they traveled to (excluding exceptions of course)

Well between Dawn and Sun places you happily in Renegade territory. The game may be mediocre, but early Visceroids, personal stealth-tech and energy weapons, the early cyborgs...
Plenty of scope for missions there. What system are you thinking of there Anon? I know Only War could manage it fairly well but I have very little experience or familiarity with modern/near-modern systems
>>
>>73652633
Yeah, I was thinking a slight rewriting of some kind of FFG warhams system. I think what's keeping me from going ahead with it is that I have never run a game before, and I feel there's a fuck load of planning I'd need to do first.
>>
>>73652766

If you're re-writing a Warhams then go Only War. The system's more free-form when it comes to archetypes/classes, so it's easier to write your own.
Between the better vehicle rules, the weapon-mod options, hell, even the mounted combat rules, you can have a lot of fun with that.
I mean fuck, I now want to run a game just so I can have Slowly-mutating Insurgents riding Tiberium-Tainted Mutant Horses...

Death isn't just evil. He's EVIL.

He's the only evil.

Life was created perfect, with no expiry date, immortal and immutable, incapable of being damaged or destroyed in any way. The universe was infinite so that life could continually flower, expand and flourish in every way.

Something went wrong, and Death created himself. He is a parasite, a fucked up virus that rots through everything, like a cancer running through the marrow of existence and he will spread until everything is part of him.

Woke up just a little too late, so the last thread, courtesy of WakfuFaguette, died in the night. I was inspired by his choice of OP image, so let's make this thread about our favorite Wakfu and Dofus antagonists, from Nox to Oropo.

>Who is your favorite major Wakfu/Dofus antagonist and why?
>What about minor antagonists, especially one-episode ones?
>Which villains are most worthy of potential redemption? Did any unworthy ones get it anyway?
>Should more Shushus have rebelled against Rushu and turned good like Rubilax did?
>I just realized that besides Lady Echo and the female Brotherhood members, we didn't exactly get a lot of female villains in Wakfu and Dofus, the only other major one I can recall right now is Julith. Do you hope for more in season 4?
>Given his presence in the trailer, do you hope that Qilby is returning for season 4?

Should I just stick with this or play regular cyberpunk 2020

If you want a more modern take on cyberpunk and the anachronisms in CP2020 (faxes, soviet politics, bad netrunning dungeon crawls) bother you a lot then sure, it looks fine.

Play vanilla, play it straight. Its a great filter for morons.

I had great fun modding this mod and played it for 6 months with my players. It's missing some equipment stats and more cyberware options, and it was never properly finished, but the hacking modules and other cyberspace stuff is way better than original Cyberpunk's.

I'd give it a shot.

Are there any games out there that have rules for social status? In the renaissance and early modern period there were clear delineations between the poor, the middle class, and the nobility (though as you got richer the lines became blurred). I'm preferably looking for a game where the party doesn't all have to be members of the same social stratum.

Why would you want social class in the game? Every player would just pick noble anyway.

So no GURPS for me

>Paladin of lawfulness has two sub patrons, he can only appease one or the other.
>One patron is focused on following the spirit of a law, if not the letter. The other is basically a rules lawyer that encourages its followers to find exploits and loopholes in the law for their own ends.
>Paladin has to bend the rules of his oath and exploit loopholes to get back at the paladin pope who did the very same things to come to power. Killing a loved one of his in the process of becoming the paladin pope.

Black holes have a heart beat. There are theories, but we don't know why. More so we don't know why it's a heartbeat specifically.

As I said, it's nothing special. They have a special document that permits them to go in and out of the city through a checkpoint, that's the only way to get in and out because there's a fence around the city. Inside they live like in any other small town, except that most people work in a nuclear research institute, they do both physics research as well as experiment with nuclear materials, storage and waste disposal, and with applications to weapons too. They've had a few accidents over the years, though nothing too serious as far as I know. The guys I know were born in Sarov (the most well known of them) and went to study physics in Moscow, they don't plan to return there.

>>73649180
Wikipidia says yes, mostly during the Manhattan Project, but there are still a few that are closed today as they're inside closed areas. Funny thing, apparently Los Alamos is the sister city of Sarov.
