I'm a sucker for stupid quirks and references in mechanics, houserules, systems and settings that don't necessarily make sense, but are fun, funny or both.

For example, I'm always amused by how housecats are more powerful than common humans in some systems. In others, they can see the dead or can use 2 virtual size categories to aid their intimidation checks - because they're cats. And because sabertooth tigers are cats, they are vulnerable to getting distracted by laser pointers.

In one setting I played recently, there's a powered loader exosuit meant for stacking boxes and a race of chitinous hunter aliens. The exosuits are practically useless in combat, having only moderate armour and only being able to slowly pinch things - but if they do "claw" (loader arm) attacks against this otherwise unrelated chitoid race, they'll do a considerable amount of damage, and they're more resistant to attacks from said creatures, purely because the designer decided that there needed to be an Alien reference.

In my setting, there's a powerful artifact described as the "Wand of Creation", said to be the strongest object in existence, utilised by They That Made This All. It's a hexagoncal prism wooden tube with a graphite internal core, and it's capable of forming objects into reality at the whim of the holder. It's my pencil.

And then there's the exploits, like the Peasant Railgun the Black Hole Arrow and the Rat Ghost Singularity. Always entertaining stories.

I love hearing about things like this, and I wish I had more interesting examples under my own belt than the Wand of Creation. What quirks of games do you know of?

Pic related - as far as vidya goes, Metal Gear Solid is choc full of these sorts of quirks and secrets.

I have Imperial Assault, Descent: Journeys in the Dark, some Police Officers from Whitehall Mystery and a box of Chaos Space Marines. I have a few brushes, but I lack paints.

Why is it that GW, in all the years of it's existence, didn't make an effort to release codex astartes or the book of lorgar as actual books? These two would surely sell and there's probably lots more in universe books that would. What other things does 40k merchandise lack in your opinion?

The same reason they no longer release black letter figures for the stats of their war vehicles. Do you really think anyone at GW is capable of writing even a coherent military organization manual? Or a religious tract? My God, the full title of the latter is the "Book of the Epistles of Lorgar" but what passages we've seen certianly don't seem like they're letters, and I'm reasonably sure that the guys who made the name don't know what an "epistle" is. They wouldn't even be able to write an ordinary human quality manual on either subject, let alone something depicting the thoughts of super-intelligent demihumans.

They know that if they tried to release it, they'd get a short burst of sales, and then a much longer period of backlash as their autistic fans pick all the idiocy out and hold it up in front of the internet. They're afraid of that backlash and don't publish.

If they didn't get any backlash from selling horribly overpriced minis, then they wouldn't get it from this..

TaleSpire released for backers in beta today. Throwing up a quick thread because I wanna build shit and share it.

>What is TaleSpire
TaleSpire is a Digital Role-Playing System trying to capture the feel of tabletop gaming using miniatures and dice, while utilizing some of the benefits of going digital.

Dungeon Masters can build campaigns, set up scenarios and invite players. Taking them through the experience as you would in a Pen & Paper style campaign. We're automating some of the rules and processes, aiming to keep downtime to a minimum while still allowing the DM and Players to make decisions along the way to create whatever narrative they aspire to.

Unity 2020

>Is it moddable
Yes. Think of this as Neverwinter Nights or Tabletop Simulator for p&p RPGs

>Is the ruleset hardcoded?
Not at all. Entirely moddable.

>Can you make your own miniatures and objects?
You can import your own 3D models

>How does building work?
You can build environments solo or collaboratively with a friend.

>How can I get this?
If you backed it on Kickstarter or Backerkit, you're getting it today. Otherwise you gotta wait a month.

Anyone here run Kult before, and have tips on targeting it toward players more familiar with D&D and the like?

Running it off pic related, so it's a horror campaign set in mid-90s London. The campaign-as-written seems to leave lots of room for deviation, so I'm thinking of adding some stuff on the side that could have more of a focus on combat and more of the usual TTRPG stuff, to ease them into it.

>> No.71927657

I'll ask a more focused question: any advice on adding combat to horror-themed games, without shifting the tone right back into adventure-RPG territory?

>> No.71927027

Learn how to GM properly instead of simply masturbating like you are now. Games center around choice. If a feature of your game doesn't impact player choice in some factor (and it should really be some speicalized factor of a sub-set of choices you want the game to be about) you don't need it. Don't make it. Make things that provide scope for those choices instead.

As a corollary of the above, you don't make the world first. You make the game first, decide it's scope first. THEN you make a world to help service that. Making a world first and then trying to jam a game into it is a poor choice.

I had a world I used for multiple campaigns but it was just uninspired fantasy that was good enough. The main advantage was that I could reuse maps. I found confining myself to it either limited what I could do with my games based on what was previously established because it was right at the time for old games or was pointless because moving the focus to another region functionally discarded the old continuity anyway.
Unless the story you're telling with your game hinges on geopolitics, any work you put into the setting details beyond the scope your players interact with is effectively wasted; any details the player characters can't discover or have no reason to care about might as well not be there.
Figure out what you want your game to be about. That includes core conflict, themes and tone. gameplay loop and mechanical focus. Your the GM so these should be whatever best holds your interest since that will shine through and impact the quality more than anything else. Even though 5e is more popular, if OSR speaks to you run that and you'll get a better game.
Write the local area first and the surrounding area in broad strokes. The further a place is from the action, the less detail you need because the less it matters and the less the PCs will know about it. If you need to change something later because you have a better idea or need it for a plot you come up with later, that's fine. No one else will notice. Keep things loose at this point. You'll want to bring in players at some point and odds are someone will want to incorporate things for their characters that you didn't include initially but aren't unsuitable. For example, maybe one will want to play a barbarian from the frozen north or an elf from a hidden village. If you accommodate them by adding those things to the map you'll more roleplaying investment from them.
In conclusion, your world should serve your game, not vice versa so don't fall into the trap of world building for its own sake.

In what regard? Theros has ruined constructed Magic the least. Ikoria is already poised to not only ruin Magic, but change a fundamental aspect of the game by introducing what are effectively just commanders into regular play. Without a commander, your deck will be at a huge disadvantage purely on card advantage alone.

They are supposed to be good, to restrain themselves like any monastic order and to not do illegal things like any official part of the government.

A few of them like the temple guards are lawful good, many of them like Obi-Wan and Yoda are neutral good, and some like Anakin and Luke are chaotic good.

So I want to preface this with the fact that I'm not very fond of min maxing characters, and instead favor interesting RP. I also haven't had much luck finding campaigns lately, but I found one.

The DM has a policy that if you have a stat low enough, you are actually hindered. He's also a madman that makes you roll a d20 and those are your stats. I managed to get some sick stats, but my character has a 3 in wisdom which fits with her hidden lore, but that's besides the point.

The character is so stupid and can't sense danger, and it was a fun and wild night.

I also somehow managed to fuck up a secret my character had by posting my entire character sheet, but alas she has plenty of secrets.

Buckle up, this is the most fun I've had playing DND. I guess this is a multi post green text story because I have so many reaction images, and as a weeb I'll be using a lot of anime pictures and maybe drawing some of my own if I feel compelled to?

First picture is my character I guess?

Do you tend to run iconic cards associated with colors or color combinations? Or do you find that they get in the way or don't play out as well as one might hope? Between charms, ultimatums, ascendancies, commands, and so on, we've seen a few high-profile cycles at this point.

What are your amazons like? If they are they're own race, what sort of things set them apart? What's their culture and society like? Are they based on anything specifically? What level of technology do they have access to and use? What sort of things do they do for fun? What is Amazonian art like? How's their religion work, and whose in charge of it?

What sort of weapons or fighting styles do they prefer? What sort of magic do they have if any, and how do they use it? How do they structure their armies, or other military branches?

You know, maybe this is a decent enough place to talk about this. I've been workshopping in my head a cyberpunk setting based on the classical world-

The idea being the gods and myths were all real, but the equivalent of Ragnarok happened for all of them, now most of the gods are dead, but those classical states have reached a cyberpunk, level of technology.

The Vikings are in separate loosely allied kingdoms caught in a constant forever war in North America, the Romans only control Italy and are a form of Military Democracy.

The Amazons are a part of a Greek federation, and I thought it'd be funny if they formed a voter block with Lesbos, the Gargareans, and Sparta. I figure they'd be one of a number of a race of giants- being about 7-9 foot tall, but they'd accept any women of other races so long as they can prove their worth. There'd be elves and dwarves from Scandinavian mythology, lamia and minotaurs from greek mythology in Greece, and I was thinking the Egyptians are genetically engineering animal folk, including Amazonian crocodile women (and also men).


>> No.71925913


When I used them, Amazons were a fantasy race of their own rather than just a specific culture of humans. They were created as the servants of Ama the goddess of war. I the great big fuckoff war of the gods that wrecked much of the world, Ama is one of the few gods that survived or didn't flee creation, but she was so badly wounded by her battles that she has been sleeping it off and recovering under the valley that the Amazons call home.

All Amazons are female, 7ft tall or bigger, and frankly an unrealistic combination of muscular form and feminine attributes. They are downright superhuman, to the point that they commonly carry around and use bows that fire 'arrows' that a normal human would call a spear without much effort. Their culture is heavily geared towards war and combat and venerating their mother goddess. The only good news is that they simply don't give a shit about gaining territory and instead just guard their sleeping goddess as an isolationist state. A few nearby kingdoms have occasionally made the mistake of picking fights with the Amazons during periods of expansion, but the Amazons have made bloody examples out of those that tried.

The Amazons are ruled over by a witch queen that was the first creation of Ama and wields a portion of the goddess's power. She is older than humanity, and capricious and alien. While the rest of the Amazons deal with humans and other races enough to be more or less friendly or capable of diplomacy, the witch queen spent thousands of years only surrounded by other women. She is physically disgusted by men on a visceral level, seeing them as sick parodies of "real people" and refusing to deal with them or even tolerate their presence.

New Amazons are not born, they are only made. In the past they were hand-crafted by Ama, but during her rest it is the duty of the Witch Queen to keep up amazon numbers. The greatest Amazons aspire to be sacrificed to Ama, to feed her their strength and hasten her return.

Nomads horsemen that chop their left breasts off so they can fire their bows without needing to breast bind. The physical trauma of lopping off a boob lowers their average lifespan and they usually have some fertility issues so they usually enslave virile men as sex fodder to ensure pregnancy.

Ancient servitor race left over from before the apocalypse. The ancient races were decadent fuckers that made a race of super-resilient female slaves that they could enjoy punting around without breaking. The reason you have gorgeous, naked, arrow-proof warrior women is because somebody long ago wanted a waifu they could fight, easily overpower, be rough with and don't worry about permanently damaging her.
Long after they were dead and forgotten by history, the descendants of their creations remain as the legendary, nigh-invulnerable savages of the eastern swamp, extremely valued as mercenaries and slaves.

>Translate the various exaltations into xianxia realms.
Doesn't really work, because Xianxia power levels are generally either degrees of raw power (lift 100kg, lift 1000kg, lift 100,000 kg), different areas of physical augmentation (skin, tendons, bones, etc), or types of ki manipulation (sensing it, starting to pulse it, focusing it, emitting it, emitting+shaping it, illusionary constructs, real constructs).
Often one type then leads to the next, and specific cultivation techniques might pursue totally different forms of each level. And those broader realms themselves are really just "can smash a boulder, a city, a nation, a planet, ten planets, infinity planets, ten dimensions, infinity dimensions, can get laid, can get infinity laid"

They're probably closer to a Charm tree than an exaltation, with progress down any tree providing passive buffs to all your stats. So your Main Character type stumbles across Glorious Solar Brawl Technique, and uses it to dick on the locals who only possess pathetic Wood Aspect cultivation techniques.

Exalts themselves just don't translate well, because Perfects are pretty unusual - Xianxia makes a *big* deal out of anything that can cross power levels in effect, and Perfects cross *all of them*. So it doesn't matter too much that Solars are obviously better, because even a lowly DB breaks Xianxia logic.

This is a bit of a weird one. Quarantine has me searching for all sorts of ways to pass the time. I came across the wikipedia page for this game, which I'd played the original version of in my teenage years, and after a bit of research, discovered the company put out an updated version of the game, in anticipation of making a computer game adaptation. The adaptation is still mentioned on Omega Games' website, but I have found no further info. Most likely, it just never came out, which is fine, but if it did, I'd love some pointers on where I could find it (by whatever means).
