Stop trying to fit in and go read some fluff, avoid 1d4chan because it's the most /v/ thing in /tg/ and you'll forever look at things through meme-tinted glasses if you use it as your first source material

This is like a horror movie – one of the really good ones, not just a dumb slasher flick. You can't bear to watch, but neither can you tear your eyes away. The tension in the room – just another room in your normally comfortable and familiar house – is unmistakable. It was certainly too much for Elliot, who fled the room at the earliest possible opportunity – although, now you think about it, that might have had more to do with the constant vile glares Leon kept shooting in his direction.
Your name is Mia Vespucci, and you're pretty sure that that was the reason.
It's all silent around the table, with Amelia, Cassandra and Leon somehow managing to stare each other down without ever looking directly at anyone. The gang's back together – that's what Cassandra murmured to you before the “discussion” began, and now you realise why she sounded so nervous. As you watched on, fascinated, Amelia laid out the basics of the situation in a terse, impatient voice. All the while she talked, Leon rapped his fingers against the polished wood of the table, the sound providing an insistent undertone to the deity's words. When Amelia finished speaking, Leon remained silent for a long time – even his fidgeting hand fell still. When it seems like the tension is getting unbearable, he speaks up.
“What's in it for me?” he says eventually, a slight smirk crossing his face.
“You...” Cassandra blurts out in surprise, “The world is in danger, don't you realise what's at stake here? If you don't help us, the world might be destroyed!”
“Aye,” Leon nods sagely, “And?”
“The world!” Amelia snaps, with such emphasis that time seems to stand still for a moment, “Is that not getting through to you? Honestly, I would have expected a little more humility from someone who got killed by a little girl...”
“Fuck you!” Leon shouts back, the smile dropping from his face in an instant, “I'll have a rematch with that wee shite, and I'll kick her fuckin' arse, just you watch!”
That... doesn't sound like anything to boast about, but you decide against mentioning that out loud. All you can do is watch this trainwreck unfold with a kind of fascination that borders on the masochistic. As your eyes flicker between each member of the group, Cassandra speaks up, this time in a placating tone.
“Leon,” she says with a visible effort to remain calm, “What, exactly, would it take to get you to help us?”
“Well, she's God, aye?” Leon smirks again, looking over at Amelia, “Go and magic up a stack of cash, that's a good startin' point!”
Scowling hard, Amelia slams her fist down onto the table – at least, she tries to. Her intangible fist passes straight through without making a sound. A moment later, Petra approaches and slams HER fist down onto the table, making all the cups bounce precariously. “Thank you,” Amelia mutters, before raising her voice, “Nobody is magicking up anything, understand? That's not how this works.”
“Are we talking about conjuring up some money?” Elliot asks suddenly, sticking his head around the door, “Because-” Before he can finish that sentence, a hand – Joseph's, you assume – grabs his collar and pulls him back out of the room. It's probably for the best, the situation is terse enough without Elliot stirring things up even more. The difficult silence returns as Elliot leaves, nobody quite willing to be the first to blink.

>>43770108 The Dark Side gives easier and quicker access to the same power and since it's also unrestricted, it's way easier to utilize. A Jedi could throw you around the room just as easily as that huge crate, but it's against their philosophy to use the Force to directly control a person's existence. Hence why they have work "around" and throw shit AT you, instead of throwing YOU.
Also, Vader was ridiculously powerful because he was the motherfucking CHOSEN ONE, and Sidious is quite likely... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>43770178 True ! For example, this one is probably the weapon of a duelist that tries to have everything under control. He won't fight unless he is sure he can win. Probably uses form II alongside other techniques
So, /tg/. Do your settings have any interesting burial rites? What's the faith/reasoning behind them? If there's a confirmed (absence of an) after-life, like the D&D Planes, do these rites have any actual effect?
>>43769984 I was just about to make this thread, though more about how you deal with the power of the gods and supplanting them. Fucking epic comic.
I don't know if it's really an interesting burial rite, but one of the customs universal to the cultures on the continent of Alcriora is singing about the life of the deceased at their funeral or funerals, if it's a group of them that died. Their accomplishments, their failures, their sins, their virtues, are woven into song by priests of the god of the dead,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>43769781 Apply axe to head. Numerous times. Apply Arrow to vital organs. Numerous times. Stab it, slash it, puncture it, crush it. It's tough and strong, but not invulnerable. Just be sure to burn the remains to prevent spores.
>>43769781 I am a 3.5e fighter. I ubercharge the ork and it explodes into spore bits at the force of my damage. Then I leave the country and wait for it to be overrun by orks. Eventually I commit suicide because I'm a fighter.
Reddit had a pretty good suggestion when you posted this there. First, brush the fronts with acetone to remove the ink. Second, print out a bunch of proxies on plastic sheets. You can do this at most professional print shops for not too much. You'll need to make it obvious that they're intended to be proxies though, or you'll have a bad time. Third, use glue to seal the cards onto the plastic. Cut out around the edges, and you have a kickass foil proxy!
You can use these to proxy up entire decks, since you have so many. An entirely foil custom... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
With a trip to Reaufort Castle planned soon, the spook spends the better part of the coming days packing provisions, sending me into town to buy supplies for the road, portable candles, salt and iron, food, and flint and steel to last a week, despite it being just under a two day walk.
Declaring his own ankle sufficiently healed enough to travel on, the spook hurries about the house after the supplies are paid for, leaving Kara to clean his messes while he orders me to continue my studies as much as possible.
The spook still seems half suspicious of the girl, despite her continued innocence, doing everything to keep her busy at all times, when she’s not cleaning the house, she’s ordered to tend the immaculate garden, or reading up on how to maintain it, or sew, or wash. Seems he’s keeping her at arm’s length until he figures out what’s happening with these tunnels at Reaufort. Poor girl is getting run ragged at this rate, falling asleep over dinner and during conversations.
With just two days left to go, I remember the orders Alison had given me after my first swimming lesson, ordering me to come back tomorrow…. on the other hand, with the way she treated Kara last time, nearly pulling her hood off, not to mention her general behaviour towards people….
>Give it a miss, someone saner can teach me to swim. >Best go alone >Bring Kara along, she needs a break.
There is absolutely no reason not to run low magic, low fantasy even if you love magic, exotic creatures, and exotic places.
By running high magic, high fantasy, all you do is make magic, exotic creatures, and exotic places stale and everyday. Even if you try to "diversify" and have there be different kinds of those things, players will think "Oh, just another fancy magical thing."
By running a setting where magic is rare, nearly everyone the people meet is a regular nonmagical human, and nearly all the places are mundane, the magic and high... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Because sometimes you just want to play some weird shit or have a place run by seven-foot fire-spitting dragonmen. Plus it makes you think: if all this magic and stuff is the norm, exactly what the hell is going to shake up the setting?
>>43769629 Because fuck you, I do what I want with my setting.
More accurately, a lot of what me and my players wanted added to the setting required magic to be more common. It isn't quite the scale where everyone and their mother knows a spell or two but a village having a level 5 or so druid or something wouldn't be unheard of
Why does your swordsperson not use halbschwert and mordhau against armored enemies?
>But my character is strong enough to cleave through armor! If you have superhuman strength and use proper armor-piercing techniques like halbschwert and mordhau to get through armor, you can instantly kill even the most armored opponent.
>>43769302 Because my swordperson is not using a German long sword.
Seriously, one of them has a chainsword (40k) and trying to do half-swording or murder-stroke with it might end up messy... Besides, he likes swinging two swords at once a lot more.
Another one has a British naval style sword so neither of those techniques would work on it.
And the last one is a Vargr and he simply has not even heard about ancient German sword fighting techniques and prefers to swing a sword in the way of his own people.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
does the system have something that makes "normal" usage of swords less effektive against plate? we pretty much require sword fighters to use these techniques against full plate armor or similiar protection
Tell me /tg/, what do you think of characters that have the ability to assimilate the enemies they slew and making their powers and abilities their own? And I'm not talking here about Tyranids or The Thing, but sentient beings that happen to have such abilities.
I know the example I'll give isn't /tg/ related and more /v/ related, but Evolva's Genohunters have this kind of ability to absorb genetic materials from the local fauna (as well creatures that aren't part of it) and gain unique abilities, improved physical capabilities and weapons such as claws, shootable spikes, flamethrower breathes and more.
>>43769177 It would also be an intressting mechanic for player advancement in case they play something with that ability.
Instead of loot, you can grant new physical traits, maybe limited by some sort of capacity stat to keep the power level under control and the party diverse, so not just everyone takes any ability of everything they ever defeated.
>>43769246 > Party defeats the giant magical mantis shrimp boss > The male monk assimilates the clubs > The female wizard assimilates the shrimp's brain tissue to expand her mind > The rouge assimilates the eyes and sees the world in 16 different colors > The cleric assimilates the armor and looks fabulous
1) The splatbooks/worldbooks are universally written by people who know what they're talking about. The Fantasy book is written by archaeologists and historians, the Space book is written by astrophysicists, the Guns book is written by gun experts, etc. The factual mistakes are few and far between, and almost always acknowledged later. They give great advice on how to make believable worlds, how FTL affects society, how magic changes warfare,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Is GURPS even that common outside the GURPS generals? Personally I've stopped recommending it on /tg/ because people just cry about it. The only time I bring it up outside of the general threads are when people ask if "Is there a game with rules for X?".
