SMAC was renowned for having seven great factions that captured core human philosophies. The five human factions added in SMAX have been derided as gimmicky. What factions should have been added instead, what ideologies or motivations or playstyles was the fame missing?

Maybe you could have some kind of caste system where every ethnicity has their place in the style of Halo's Covenant or Tau septs?
Are the other factions' citizens also his customers or are they too insular for that?

Yeah, one of the best things about Morgan is while he’s an unabashed greed-monger, he’s not like an Ayn Rand libertarian trying to justify it with highbrow fake philosophy. He loves to compete, he loves getting rich, and if you join him he’ll make you rich too up until he needs to cut you off and make you poor so he can get richer.

His Luxury perk is probably as a stowaway, he needed to convince people to join him by promising them great riches.
Probably she’s just something that shouldn’t be thought about too much, as in reality she’s almost certainly a joke about how in Civilization your chosen leader sticks around for thousands of years while also somehow existing prior to when they should have. Abraham Lincoln in the Stone Age, natch.

Why do you never see cold places where the most respected mages are the ones who can cast fire spells to warm things up, or hot places where the most respected mages are the ones who can cast water/ice spells to cool things up?
Good question.
that's more of a cool party trick than it is actually helpful

When Tolkien created the template most people use he created Orcs, Elves, Dwarves, Men, and Hobbits and set each of them as exemplifying an aspect of humanity that made them distinct while combining them with mythology, folklore, and cultural elements of historical peoples.
Where Dwarves were Greed, Industriousness, Gnomes, and the Celts (clans, beer)... Elves were Beauty, Grace, Nature, Alfar, and the Scandinavians (from violent to peaceful).
I challenge you tg, to make a race that is not one of those run into the ground doing something similar. Pick a few attributes of humanity and slam them against either some mythical being, folk story, or animal and a culture.
Give us some interesting things so that people can find something worthy to inject into their games.

I know but it's the "they aren't humanoid in the first place" that makes it a fan theory.

You don't take Elfs, elves, Dwarf, or dwarves. You understand what they represent and choose another pick to fill the space.

How about Mongol Centaurs?
Jellyfish are pretty cool though
Mongol seems a bit on the nose. Brutal though, it would work. Even the Centaurs being rapey of Human women and Mongols being pretty rapey too.
Perhaps the problem with that would be parthian tactics, specifically firing on retreat, it works with humans because the horse and the person are separate.

It really isn't.

I mean, it's not quantum physics, so yes in comparison to a lot of other things in life it is easy to learn. However, there are literally thousands of ttrpgs that are easier to learn than 5e.
There is no such thing as an RPG designed by liberals which ISN'T pure trash, anon.

I find that the only way for zoomers to even appreciate anything that is outside of 5e is to make it somehow simpler. This is actually not a terrible idea because despite the simplicity 5e still has a lot of "caulk" to it that makes it unfun to actually read the actual setting books of, so how exactly would you make a system that is simpler than 5e AND make it appealing enough for them to read your book? After all you want those faggots to play your game

>Have them roll 1D6 whenever they make a character; the D6 is the cheapest and most accessible dice; with the result being that character's number. Whenever they need to roll a dice, they need to roll above their number to do anything dragons related (combat) or below their number to do anything dungeons related (exploration). Matching the number is a critical success, and they get something extra good on top of the expected result.
I unironically like this. It's pretty close to honey heist
I'm a 3.5 player I find that 5e is really simple. Maybe I'm just too much of an autist to relate to anyone.

fucking zoomers...gods I feel too old for this board.

What are the basics of a road trip campgain? A couple of players in a car traveling the world in a car. Fighting monsters and taking a rest at the local motor inn and catching a bite at a diner.

How do I make a game feel road-trippy enough?
>local motor inn
You've got a car filled with faggots, but this is the gayest part of your post.
What the fuck is your problem?
Going to do a Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas one off next time I’m with my group now. How would the drugs work in a ttrpg ? Perhaps similar to the way Doom works on Conan 2d20. Trade short term satisfaction with long term tripping on mescaline

There's a difference between walking into a tavern and seeing a goblin dishwasher sweeping up and getting panicky after a bunch of blood covered thugs march in demanding meat and beer and adventurers fighting their way up the tower of high overlord deathbringer and walking in on what is very obviously the head vizier hastily putting rags over his gold trim robes.

Board game ideas thread?

Either mechanics, theme or both.
7 replies omitted. Click here to view.
I kind of want a game where all you do is upgrade your [blank]. Like a ship, submarine, space ship, mad max vehicle, whatever. Your player board is your vehicle and it has lots of spots for upgrades that modify how it works and you draw cards for adventures which may require checks on upgrades, cause fights, find salvage or shops, just whatever there is to find out there. A deck of big cards is your scenarios or modifiers to the game or your endgame condition. Several starting vehicles that are asymmetrical. I don't know, I just want a board that you can upgrade the fuck out of with stuff you find but I'm not sure to what end. Its a pretty vague idea as it is.

Nuff said

I got 3 pots of lahman medium as a freebie/apology (the store fucked up my order), not sure what to do with it.

I remember reading somewhere that you can dump some lahmian into the Citadel paint pots to pre-thin the base and layer paints, thus requiring less diluting with water later on. Did anyone try that? If yes, what's the correct amount of medium for mostly-full paint pots (around 10ml left)?
5 replies omitted. Click here to view.
I didn't think that this belonged there, but I guess I'll try. Thanks.
Um... I don't follow. The washes are way thinner than cream-like paint, isn't it very similar to adding water?
No, you add medium to make glazes (layers of semi-transparent color). Useful for tying rough blends together, subtle hue changes, or generally emulating oil painting techniques.
Adding it to your base paints is just going to make the coverage worse, would not recommend.
You can also use acrylic medium combined with acrylic pigmented inks (Daler Rowney, et al) to make your own contrast paints.
Basically, the store gave you near valueless dead stock.

Lahmian Medium is great for thinning down inks and things that you dont want to be glossy like most wash type paints. Unless you have a shit ton of it you really dont want to bother using it with paint, unless you have a slightly glossy finish paint that you want to cut down a bit.

It also makes for a fantastic light sealer/matte coat for things you've drybrushed, terrain/bases, and transfers.

Dont ever put it over a metallic, but if theres anything you want to matte down a bit or have a slightly different finish to, like cloth, you could do a lot worse than using a light coat of it.
>Adding it to your base paints is just going to make the coverage worse, would not recommend.
Well, damn, but thanks for the info.
Is there anything else besides the water that I could use to thin down the paints and make them easier to work with sans-diluting on palet?
I don't like how thick they are, especially base paints, but I hear both flow improver and water are bad for potted paints and should only be added just before applying to mini
