Some cotnext for fun.

Pic related was a sort of pocket dimension that was a massive lake with land around the edges and a A lich tower in the middle, the ruler of the place. You need an invitation to get in through boat, hence the giant door on the left.

This one's a zone players were exploring, a necropolis crashed into a ghost city (it was abandoned, not spooky) and now the place has become spooky.

Warsenal has some a lot of new prepainted stuff. Hexagon Mill and Muse on Minis used to but stopped production, you can find the tables 2nd hand though.
Warsenal Color Printed stuff is the best.
Never seen that stuff in person, is that actually printed on the MDF or just some very advanced stickers on both sides?
The ONLY good guys of Infinity are Tohaa. There's even no point arguing

John Titor is a real person and was here on 4chan. It's so weird to see an anime character based on him.
Are you retarded?
Are you retarded? John Titor posted here with stories about the future. Anime character was based on him.

I asked Titor some questions and he just gave me an "I don't know what you're talking about."

Wait. Fuck. I can't find them on google. I never saved screenshots. Not the 2016 ones, this was maybe 2003, 2004. Did no one screenshot that? It was popular, there were archives, he'd answer questions. It's like it's gone. Is anyone here old enough to remember John Titor on 4chan?

Anyone? Anyone who remembers Moot and Snacks and Cracky-chan and Cock Mongler. Titor was here, I swear it, I'm not retarded!
I don't advise doing this.

Pickaxes would make most sense.
Axe is the "iconic dwarf weapon" just because Gimli had an axe in Lord of the Rings, I'm pretty sure that every other time Tolkien described fighting dwarves he wrote of them using pikes.
Shut the fuck up knife ears.

For a medieval-premodern setting, as a player, how would you exploit clouds being made of ice and being supercooled freezing anything they touch when it comes down? Water that floats on top of air to a certain height but loses this property in contact with the ground is ripe for exploitation, but this is a tunnel-visionTM check if it is not too goofy. Also floating sharks and thermal vents.

I mean, this almost certainly screws with the weather cycle in some odd ways. Logically it should mean any and all precipitation is snow or hail rather than rain.

I don't think medieval people could really exploit that though. People in more northern regions could already hike to the top of a mountain and bury something in snow to preserve it. At most, this extends that more to the tropics, which might be able to exploit the clouds as a source of cooling and food preservation.
You might be able to do more if it's possible to trap the clouds in jars or bottles, though that might be a little hazardous. Though depending on how feasible that is, it could become a source of ice boxes or rudimentary refrigeration, or even be used as something like land mines or grenades where you toss a clay flask and hope to flash freeze anyone in the vicinity.

If anything the floating sharks are more promising, since if you could harness them you've basically got some flying mounts that might allow for, at a minimum, some rudimentary hot-air balloons or something similar. Depends on how capable people are at getting a shark to float in the direction they want without eating them.
>exploit the clouds as a source of cooling and food preservation.

Could you explain some more about how these methods of food preservation might work?
Holy fuck this is such an amazing anomaly I’ll steal for my stalker game

How do you explain the angry dark mountain guy in your setting?

>Some shitskin found out free site that generates AI crap so now all the boards are spammed with it
Is this explanation enough for you, Rajesh?
I dealt with a similar bad guy in an old Ravenloft campaign I played in the '90s. His backstory was that he was essentially a gnome tyrant from an early modern setting that was obsessed about the concept of "progress" and about outproducing his far more advanced geopolitical rivals. He eventually mass murdered so many people in the name of "progress", he became a Darklord, and his curse was that he become one with the Red Mountain, the biggest mountain of the setting he came from and also the seat of his government, essentially turning into a living dungeon. The Dark Powers tormented him by forcing his domain to remain at an early medieval technological level, so the Red Mountain was scared shitless about more advanced rival nations eventually coming out of the Mists and rip him and his backwards realm a new asshole, and couldn't really do nothing about it beyond producing several variants of mindless rock soldiers to bully his subjects with, hoping that, somehow, some Leonardo dude showed up to kickstart technological advance. He eventually got BTFO by our group nuking the "brain" part of Red Mountain with an holy artifact and his domain disappeared in the Mists.
A spiritual fragment of either an evil god, or a really angry one, that fell off into the mortal world and fused with the mountain. Best part is that the side effect of that is that the mountain serves as a physical avatar of that god as well as a powerful locus of magic that creates a web of ley-lines that comes from it. Which is why wizards, sorcerers, overlords and more WANT to build their citadels on top of them (or at least near them and build something cheaper so not to pay for extra logistics and shit).
Darn that's a cool campaign.
I dont have my own setting, this is what nogames neckbeards have. I simply make up a new map for each campaing I go with.

But if I wanted an angry mountain man, he would probably be a primordial being, as old as the world itself. When sentient beings appeared on the world, he too gained sentience.

He isn't evil, but he doesnt have any sense of morality. He is the only one of this kind, smarter than anyone. He has some influence on geothermal/volcanic activity in his inside and he is producing toxins to mind control creatures around. He is working on some ways to move his personality into mortals, possessing them like a demon would, because he wants to see what the world is like

Ok so you don’t want people to agree with you?
Ok we’ll see you in 3 hours for your answer bizarre scizo man
People on here love to pass around that screencap about how low IQ criminals can't form a theory of mind for other people and therefore can't empathize but they can't recognize it happening in themselves when a whole group of people fails to get their "obvious" puzzle
Considering the people who post this are usually cross posting from /pol/ empathy is usually asking too much
The issue is that it’s just a lore and listening question, not even a riddle or puzzle. It’s like if the sphinx’s riddle is “what walks on four limbs as an infant, two as an adult and needs a cane when old?” Of course it’s a fucking person but if the sphinx is an autistic retard it’s much harder because the riddle is actually “what um you know craw- I mean walks of four legs as a child- I mean baby, two as a man, adult, grown up pers- I mean creature, and has a third leg- um, I mean support when old?” The group has no idea what he said beyond a third leg when old.

Whats a cool moral dilemma I can give my players in my homebrew 5e game? One where there is no easy answer?
228 replies and 43 images omitted. Click here to view.
I eat the child and sell his sweet shoes.
Damn, outsmarted again.
Next dilemma:
You're alone in you're room at night, on the verge of falling asleep in a super comfortable bed, when suddenly you see see a figure standing in the corner of you're room.
It's the same child you ate before, but this time he has even better shoes (they seem maybe even magical)
Do you leave you're bed to steal the shoes but mess up your path to slumber, or accept the loss and continue on for what may be the best night of sleep of you're life
Scenarios like this is how you get a party of "murderhobos" who are desensitized to all NPC suffering and don't care how awful their own actions are. Big deal burning down an orphanage, last session we helped a guy murder people to become a suicidal demon. How about this moral dilemma:
>you have to torture 10 million people to death or else Hitler comes back and he's invincible and on fire
>Htler will probably torture 10 million people to death, but it might be more or less and you can't kill him
Or this one?
>a trolley is hurtling toward half a dozen people but you could pull the lever and send it towards six people
If you don't get involved, little changes. There's no point in caring about being righteous or getting attached to anything, it all ends in mud and shit.
