What good character/setting motivations are there for skimpy outfits? Male and female both, beef and cheese are both fine.
Ludicrously easy. In basically all settings where the majority of combatants eschew armor, such as anything remotely like real life, its probably very practical in many cases to dress down to disperse heat better.
Despite the majority of combatants IRL not having worn armor, however, as soon as someone puts on a chainmail bikini, people start fixating on gore potential.
You're a secret agent disguised as a stripper/ cheap whore. They enjoy the disguise more than they should.
Your God is a perv, he demands that his followers wear skimpy outfits and flash the heavens on occasion.
After the apocalypse, good quality clothes became another luxury. The less fortunate wander the world in little more than rags.
Wuxia settings are often biased against heavy armour, Xia prefer mobility and blocking/dodging to absorbing blows.
For more generic fantasy stuff, in a goofy fantasy setting I run I justify barely covering armour (for both genders) as being made of small amounts of a potent magical metal which holds enchantments extremely well, but is unstable in larger quantities. So the optimal way of using it is in small articles of armour or worked into pieces of clothing which can generate a magical shield over the rest of the user.
Conventional armour does exist, but given that it's heavier, more awkward and less comfortable, everyone who can afford it goes for the skimpy option.
How skimpy? Sister Repentia have many degrees of skimpy.
>You've got the goods and want people to know it.
>Have sick tattoos that need showing off.
>Being in a caste/religion with a dress code that expects skimpiness
>Poor, and fabric is expensive- hence nudity or skimpiness is common for the lower class/ fashion has evolved from that over time, so even the rich wear fancy but still skimpy clothes.
>Main creatures in the setting don't require clothes to be comfortable.
On top of everything else here, you can argue for cultural value as well.
>society where women are treated as a lower class and merely tools, sex included
>society where women are put on a pedestal and encouraged to flaunt what they have
>matriarchal societies that encourage and worship the figure of the creatures that give birth
Skimpy outfits I can abide, but bare feet on adventurers make my autism flare up. Basically the worst thing you could do to fuck your body up and it's only ever done for fetish purposes
Monsters are so powerful and magic is so potent that wearing armor is a waste of time for adventurers so they don't even bother and instead decide to dress provocatively to help with trading and bartering
Only soldiers fighting other soldiers bother with armor.
Well, to be fair, she can apparently fly. Depending on whether or not she has magical hovering capability (despite the flaming wings), her feet may never actually touch the ground.
Fashion. Armor is made by fashion designers and enchanted to still protect despite skimpiness.
In one game I took part in, people moved up from the lower caste based on their achievements in war, so they took to wearing skimpy clothing that flaunted their muscles and battle scars. Once they moved to the upper caste, they started to dress more conservatively.
There was no armor in the setting (it was Neolithic) so lack of protection didn't enter the picture.
Off the top of you head
1) feeling of invincibility and/or intent of projecting that feeling to others
2) lookin damn good and wanting to flaunt it
3) magic/tech protection
4) being a fanatic and/or idiot that doesn't feel The need to wear armour
The character simply likes skimpier clothing despite any impracticality.
>What good character/setting motivations are there for skimpy outfits? Male and female both, beef and cheese are both fine.
Thinly veiled image dump threads.
Also, in my setting it's a >>43459510 thing martial artists do. Regular people prefer more protective gear though which few female warriors exist (around 10% of the martially trained population) tend to prefer armour roughly shaped after their contours for cultural reasons.
When you can cast fireballs, you ain't gotta explain shit.
>You're a secret agent disguised as a stripper/ cheap whore. They enjoy the disguise more than they should.
I actually had to do this in a campaign, but the DM made me have real encounters with customers and then even party members to keep my identity.
After a couple days he dropped that part of the plot by saying the plan didn't work out. I felt used.
I accept you Wizard and raise you a Sorceress
>a game set inside a woman's uterus
...Is it bad I'm now thinking of a setting based off of various ancient civilizations where each plane is in the womb of a goddess?
Even they suffer from social problems
Sure everyone agrees the sorceress chick in barely decent silk is perfectly fine, but when my 153 year old mage shows up in underpants and an endure elements spell folks gets mad.
>"All right, Grandpa, let's get you back to the old folks' home, you're going to catch your death of the cold in that loincloth!"
>"I'm telling you, I'm Magious the Magnificent and I'm just out shopping!"
>Implying a sorceress is superior to a wizard
You don't really need any justification beyond culture. There are already thousands of historical civilizations that wore skimpy clothing and do not have the same values of modesty as us. That's really all you need.
Once again culture- There were civilizations that viewed armor as cowardice, so people often went into battle stark naked to show off how badass their fighting ability was. Sure, this usually didn't work out against more heavily-armored opponents (See: Gauls vs. Romans), but considering this is fantasy, pretty much all armor is cosmetic anyway. Swords can cut through thick armor like butter when they need to and no one seems to question it.
Another factor could be technology and armor supply. The vast, vast, vast majority of soldiers in history, even in the age of full plate, never wore a scrap of armor and if they did, it was usually a helmet. You could be in a pre-medieval setting where pretty much NO ONE wears much armor, so having little to no armor is now seen as a disadvantage.
I have spellsword that basically is forest/jungle Rambo, but shows up in a full suit to freak people out as he is clean and proper despite being in the shit. Same concept could apply to bare feet.
Plenty of civilizations survived without shoes without it being an instant deathwish.
Why do >muh realismfags always hold fantasy settings to higher standards of realism than actual real life?
>You're a gladiator. Killing your opponent is discouraged (gladiators are expensive to train) and the primary goal is to entertain the crowds and fighting half-naked is one of the baser ways to do it.
>Setting is not advanced enough for armor to be common.
>Weapons are so far superior to armor that there is no point to wearing it.
I don't care if that fucker is a 10th-Circle Archmage of the Secret Order of Power or whatever.
If there is a chick wearing robes like >>43462164, I'm going to make lewd comments and inappropriate gropes until she feels embarrassed about it. Or I get her in bed.
Either way, it's fun and will lead her to regret her decisions in life.
She's fat, anon.
You can want to fuck her doughy body, but while you plow her donut hole she'll be thinking about getting a different kind of cream pie later.
>10th-Circle Archmage of the Secret Order of Power or whatever.
>I'm going to make lewd comments and inappropriate gropes until she feels embarrassed about it.
Odds are the BEST case scenario ends with you being hit with a permanent polymorph into thong, you realize this right?
Look, if that bitch is going to get so angry about someone making comments about her tits, which are hanging right out there for anyone to gawk at, what is even the point of dressing like that?
Obviously it's for attention, but you can't get mad when you get that attention.
Also anti-magic shell.
It more the groping that'd probably get you on her shitlist
Ain't gonna stop her from dropping a boulder on you from outside its range
All you did was make it so she'll have to get creative
>I'm going to make lewd comments
Well, this is kinda cunty, why can't you just enjoy the view?
Why would this be appropriate in any situation besides the girl telling you it's okay?
You know, just because you've never actually felt a woman's touch doesn't mean you need to be so hostile
but if you want to keep living in your porn industry created fantasy, be my guest.
How do you know? Maybe she dresses like that because she's easy?
>Why would this be appropriate in any situation besides the girl telling you it's okay?
Groping is always okay. Sometimes it just takes a little force to make people understand that.
>...but bare feet on adventurers make my autism flare up
My setting has a god of joy, whose paladins are most commonly thrill-seekers and adrenaline junkies.This, combined with the god's disinclination towards pain, resulted in his paladins having a rather unique fighting style.
Where a traditional paladin takes on enemy aggro and tanks it, a paladin for the god of joy takes on enemy aggro and focuses entirely on dodging it, aided by unobstructing, light, minimalistic armor.
skimpy armor is preferred for all paladins, and is not gender-specific
>Cop a feel off of titty wizard as she walks by
>Turns out she's a erudite
>YFW she knows assimilate
>YFW the moment you grab her tit she casts it and sucks you in
>YFW she doesn't even slow as all that's left of you is a bit more of a bounce in her now slightly larger boobs
You havent even seen fat, anon.
I first read that as pastry industry created fantasy, which made it lot funnier.
I did hear that the original story was a metaphor about girls losing their virginity or something.
Just be thankful you didn't grope her ass
>I did hear that the original story was a metaphor about girls losing their virginity or something
The original story end with the wolf eating red with no woodsman to save her
I would be lying if I said I didn't find the idea of a mage that assimilates others to make herself hotter sexy as fuck
especially if her victims remain aware and hypersensitive to whatever erogenous zone they became
But even ignoring the magical realm, an opponent that basically flings around save or die attacks would be annoying as fuck
>Groping is always okay. Sometimes it just takes a little force to make people understand that.
>polymorph into thong
Enchanted items can project a transparent protective barrier around your body which is at least as effective as plate armour.
But it can't project through heavy solid objects very well.
>I'm going to make lewd comments
Not really seeing the point but whatever.
You just said it was inappropriate.
>will lead her to regret her decisions in life
I doubt it.
>I did hear that the original story was a metaphor about girls losing their virginity or something.
That sounds like bullshit English teachers with too much free time come up with.
This is either the best idea or the wrost idea.
So the wolves wont get her, silly. And to make my dick hard.
>If there is a chick wearing robes like >>43462164, I'm going to make lewd comments and inappropriate gropes until she feels embarrassed about it. Or I get her in bed.
>A fully armored male paladin and scantily clad female sorceress travel the land
>The sorceress is always teasing and flirting with the paladin
>He always rejects her advances and shyly mumbles shit about muh purity
>Slowly but surely she manages to corrupt the paladin until he falls in love with her
>Things go well until the sorceress is kidnapped by a band of bloodthirsty orcs
>Despite knowing that he cannot win, the paladin sets out to destroy the orcs and save the only woman he ever loved
>Eventually the orcs overwhelm him and take him prisoner
He discovers that the sorceress was never kidnapped, she went with the orcs out of her own volition
As she is pumped full of goop by literally dozens of barbed orc dicks, she weakly moans "d-don't look at me, paladin-san!"
When it's all over and she's still shuddering with extacy, barely even able to contain the inhumanly large amounts of orc semen in her various orfices, she gargles "Don't worry, m-my heart will always belong to you!"
>YFW you accidentally
or maybe not so accidentallyend up grabbing a handful of the 10th-Circle Archmage of the Secret Order of Power's large, soft tits
>YFW you instantly realize you fucked up by the unamused look on her face
>YFW she just raises an eyebrow before the whole world begins shifting and seeming to grow as you find yourself unable to move at her feet
>YFW you realize you have no face, somehow knowing you've been reduced to a thin, silk thong
>YFW she steps into you, giving you a perfect view of her short, barely there skirt to see she's wearing nothing under it
>YFW she slowly pulls you up, past her smooth, milky thighs until you find yourself pulled tight against her crotch and engulfed by her thick ass as she seems almost to give herself a wedgy, burying you in her most intimate places
>YFW she struts off without a word, those delicious, creamy hips you find yourself wrapped around swaying from side to side
Like I said, it COULD be the best idea.
I'd probably go for the hot girl that isn't capable of magically ruining me
if my fetish wasn't powerful and dangerous women.
>Unamused archmage could turn you into anything she desires
>She turns you into a thong
>Not a cute little shota
0/10, would not awkwardly flirt with
The shota isn't supposed to be appealing as much as he's supposed to be a self-insert for the reader. It's not about a desire for paedophilia as much as it is the desire of men -always expected to be strong and though- to be vulnerable in the safe and caring embrace of a strong yet loving woman.
If you don't think that's the tightest shit then get the fuck out of my face.
People wear skimpy clothing in real life all the time, so just give them some kind of magical protection (or something that makes regular armour look like skimpy clothing) and it won't be weird.
>Oath of Devotion
I leave her to her wishes.
>Oath of the Ancients
I leave them all alone, as such is their wishes.
>Oath of Vengeance
I kill the orcs.
I remove the penises of the orcs and force them to watch me rape the slut and prove that one human dick is worth a dozen orcs' dicks. Then I kill them.
>Oath of the Crown
Joke's on her, I've been banging the Queen.
>Oath of Vengeance
I feel like you're not putting enough passion behind it.
A proper Vengeance Paladin would threat the following.
Paladins in 5E gain their power from a Sacred Oath. This supplies them with their code, and some unique special abilities. A Paladin who breaks his code and later swears a bargain with a creature of the Lower Planes becomes an Oathbreaker Paladin. That is why they're paladins - all a paladin's class features, but with more evil magic and less codes.
Maybe, although a Paladin of Vengeance might work a little better, since Oathbreakers need pacts with demons. Not the Warlock kind that lets you kind of do what you want, they always work for demons. That's what they have as a code.
>Maybe, although a Paladin of Vengeance might work a little better, since Oathbreakers need pacts with demons. Not the Warlock kind that lets you kind of do what you want, they always work for demons. That's what they have as a code.
Well, they were Lawful Evil back in 2nd, following the "To err is human, to punish divine." creed. I'd say Daemon pact would not be beneath them - their ends would justify even use of such means.
And a better paladin then most /tg/ paladins.
I find it funny that the corrupted blackguard version of Jeane is closer to how /tg/ plays paladins than the saint version.
Why? They have all a Paladin's class features. They have everything not related to the Oath that any other Paladin has. They just have a much more vague and more evil Oath - obey a demon.
Nah, I am ok with CE paladins but that should be paladins that swore an oath to some CE good, once they break an oath they don't deserve to be paladins anymore.
Druids make the best BBEGs.
>Forgives those who have wronged her.
>Defends peasants from skeletons and dragons.
>Just wants to make the world a better place.
>Has a flag as a weapon.
She is the paladin /tg/ should aspire to be.
Going without armor is for some quirk of metabolism or fantastical settings/mechanical rules (including natural armor, magical armor, or what have you) roughly as practical as using armor.
My barbarian doesn't use armor, but that makes her tougher to hit and even when naked, she's fairly resistant to damage. (But tougher with some very scant armor. Think gladiator outfits.)
Of course, in the system, armor makes you easier to hit but provides DR.
Your armor is a nano-skin implanted under your natural skin. It generates a force field arround your body and needs so little obstruction as possible to work.
Your armor is a set of magical tatoos / runes painted over your body. They need so little obstruction as possible to work.
Fantasy is like real life: you need very little excuse to dress like a slut / homo / whatever.
-Armour is useless in this world because of x/y/z
- Much like rival species of animals, culturally combat is seen to be just as much about presentation as it is prowess.
-Supreme arrogance and disregard for the threat the enemy poses. Some classical Celts went into battle stark naked in the certainty that their gods would protect them and scorned the use of armour.
The ancient Roman saw more wangs on the battlefield than you could ever imagine.
All you need to ask is
1. Do you enjoy it?
2. Is your group ok with it?
3. Are you willing to suspend some disbelief?
If you can answer all of those truthfully yes (make sure your group isn't just saying yes to be nice or something) then go for it. As long as it's not in a setting meant to be realistic/believable like Middle Earth or Westeros I don't see a problem with it.
You are aware that Fahrenheit is used by about six countries in the world?
I literally have no clue how hot that is.
95 in celcius is just short of boiling water but I get the feeling that F is substantially lower.
Here, this ought to clear things up for you.
I will never get used to seeing my name every time temperature scales are discussed.
>Came for the cake
>Got this thread
>Your adventuring party will never need to infiltrate a lich's lair
>The shapely wizard girl will never suggest she could polymorph everyone else into trinkets and apply a false magic aura and approach the lich under pretense of working against the party before dispelling the enchantment
>She will never smile as you draw the longest straw and are the one to be transformed last
>She will never turn the other party members into small gems each day
>She will never prepare you for your spell on the day before the encounter
>You will never feel odd as you find yourself turning into something else
>She will never pick up her new silk panties from the floor and dust them off before putting them on with a shudder
>She will never carry the rest of the party before the lich just as planned
>She will never wear you to the final battle
>Your party will never just barely overcome the lich without your help
>She will never explain in tears to the rest of the party how the lich plucked one of the orbs from the bag while her arms were still bound by his servants and crushed it to dust before throwing it to the wind
>She will never be tearing up while nearly doubled over because she's wearing you and recently added another enchantment to make you especially soft and rub rhythmically against her
Orcs are evil. Smite evil.
Having sex with something that is evil is an evil act. Smite evil.
The planet was originally a Spring Break vacation spot until interplanetary travel became too cost prohibitive. Now, hundreds of years later, the planet's culture is based on a revival of the "classics", based on advertisements that survived from that period.
Everyone wears nothing but skimpy bikinis, Hawaiian shorts, and similar outfits, and all conflicts are resolved with the ritual contests of volleyball, wet t-shirt contests, and watergun fights.
that's enough internet for today I think
Weapons are very advanced, armor is underdeveloped.
Basically everyone is running around with swords and shit that cut through armor like butter, so what's the point of putting armor? It will slow you down and wouldn't even stop a dagger.
