you talk to them, you autist if you like them and they seem reasonable, you let them in then you assemble the group then, some players flake, either because they don't like your DMing style (and you could be genuinely bad, you have to accept this notion) or because times don't work our or due to unrelated reason then you take on another players, preferrably recommended by your existing 'cool' players it works. nowadays, my campaigns are sort of closed club, not because we're elitist, but because it's easier to source a new player...

The New Necrotic Armada strengthens its hold on a new system, Jadyk's Generals creating bunkers and fortresses on alien worlds. The Ahkam converted natives beginning planet-wide preparations and celebrations, bonfires and sacrificial altars blessed and stacked high with food.
Entropic Excavators shatter and consume vast amounts of stone and raw metal ore, the metal ingots left in their wake harvested and shipped out where they were needed in your Armada.
Across several systems Eyegores drift undetected, watching over planets circling strange stars. Ahkam and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

Underneath the emblems, medals and trophies of long ago victories was a suit that increased the wearers strength and speed greatly.

Welcome to The Lost Island Quest. Last thread our hero, Alan Rodain, killed an entire tribe's worth of orcs and witnessed the miracle of conception. Now, he wonders whether this was all really worth it.
why /tg/? I got the look I've given "That guy" from my group when I pitched this game. Every thing about it is great but putting that much spotlight on player to player sex is just uncomfortable. it's not like we've shyed away from the topic before. We generally play games with R rated material like Shadowrun or Delta Green but this just feels like some one put the Book of Erotic Fantasy in the core mechanics. No one was "offended" it just made me look like I was trying to create a magical realm. I feel it's prudish to dismiss the mechanic but that leaves one female player and four dudes and unless two play gay that's a pretty awkward environment.
>>44449303 Firstly, nothing dictates your players MUST play the same gender that they hold. One or more of your dudes could have female characters. Second, nothing dictates that your players must play the same orientation as they are, so two of them could just "play gay".
Thirdly, the sex moves do not, by default, require that the sex be with a PLAYER character. Many have no effect against NPCs, but you could change that with some basic homebrew. The moves care if you have sex with a CHARACTER.
Fourthly, and getting to the actual meat of your question: Because it's a chosen theme by the game designer to explore in this world. Apocalypse World is a post-apocalyptic wasteland, where everyone is fighting to survive. Where there are plenty of scarred, hardened, guarded characters. Sex indicates a waste of time and potentially resources, and exposure of one's self to another. It's showing a level of intimacy and trust with another character, and therefore there are notable repercussions to the act.
Personally, I think it's more thematically appropriate in Monsterhearts, where the idea is that, as hormonal CW teenage monsters, sex is an important milestone in their development, and has a power in the culture.
If you want to change it, make it purely a matter of intimacy/emotional connection, above and beyond the physical. If the Gunlugger confesses to the Angel that they used to be afraid of guns, because (CHILDHOOD TRAUMA), and so that's why they use them now, and the Angel reciprocates, explaining that they're secretly happy that the world's fucked up, because they feel special when they help people, and now everyone needs their help, Boom, both trigger their move.
>Were there specific complaints or just talking about sex getting awkward?
at first the battle babe rose some eyelids not because sexism (James Bond is technically a battle babe depending on the movie) but because of the tonal whiplash how are you supposed to get a Walking Dead or The Road vibe when you have naked amazon chick with a sledge hammer. this was just exacerbated by the sex moves.
but like I said interpersonal drama isn't something we're new to we've had sessions that had maybe like 30 min of combat and the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
The year is 2016 and the United States is dominated by petty-bourgeois ideology. The people chafe under the capitalist yoke, but are too numbed by propaganda to realise that they hold the true power in society. It is a dark time.
But even in darkness, there is light. Adrianna Nagelburg has realised the TRUTH and set out to bring real change to America!

hi fairly new to MtG here >have actual shit tier cards would buying a booster box be worth it? i know the leaks have shown some cards to be amazing, like Eye of Ugin and Crumbling Vestige so any help would be appreciated
>>44451096 Is this the new meme? Seriously everyone says just buy singles. Have you ever opened a box? It's fucking fun. If someone wants to drop 100 bucks and get a playsets of ever common, almost every uncommon, most rares and some mythics and foils. Let them.
If they want to tear the packs open, cool. If they wanna draft it or play sealed. Great.
Nobody gives a fuck about just buying singles like a boring spike faggot net decker.

How does this Open Game License thing work? What exactly is the license offering? I know Pathfinder is mechanically identical to 3.5 but I thought that you couldn't copyright game mechanics?
I mean what's to stop me from making a d20 game called labyrinths & leprechauns based on based on fifth eddition Dungeons & Dragons? As long as I don't copy anything outright word for word I should be all right to have classes, levels experiences and feats right?
The d20 license meanse you can copy and paste everything, including (and this is the key) exact wordings, provided you include in the book the copy of the license. Mechanics are not copyrightable, but the wording is.
>>44449900 Right, thought so. So how come the how come retro clones didn't really become a thing until the open gaming license? Was it simply there was no niche to fill that ADN D hadn't covered already
Because they are niche as fuck, and it takes a lot of skill and resources to produce moulds. Some stuff is better then others though- GW troops are okay, but never buy their characters, and the newer stuff is getting more and more expensive. Warmachine and Infinity are just as pricey, per model. Reaper, Wargames Factory and Perry Miniatures are all very reasonable.
