Well, I do like the concept they were bringing across. Changelings are described as taking on personas when they adopt a role in society, so attaching a proficiency to a persona is a neat idea. Similarly, an integrated tool for a custom warforged is an interesting idea, although that one is less backed by the setting; warforged were rarely described as being built in different subtypes, at least in the original sourcebooks for 3e and 4e.

Simple solution: "The Old World" is like Azeroth. It can be used to refer to both the world and a specific region in it. This makes sense now in a way it didn't before because this way they don't have to keep calling their old setting with new material being published for it "The World That Was" which was dumb and awkward to begin with.

I suspect they're going to use AOS rules as a baseline and bolt additional rules onto it. Opening the door to cross-pollination between the two games only makes sense. Otherwise I'd say that's a pretty realistic "best-case scenario."

No, because you still have alternative rule sets, earlier editions, and even alternatives to 9nth.

X-Wing used to be at the top of that. But then it got flabby, weighed down by constant fixes upon fixes. 2.0 was supposed to fix that, but honestly, it hasn't really because the other big problem was product fatigue. They've oversaturated it, and these 3 month waves are only going to make it worse.

Meanwhile, as for AoS, it's selling well, but look at how much money GW are throwing at it. How many completely new model ranges did they make for last year? Compared to 40k? Jesus, Blood Bowl has had less teams than that and all they need to do there is a 6 model sprue, board, dice and I guess an issue of Spike?

I stopped playing 40k a few editions ago. I'm wondering how much of the current timeline reinstates the Eye of Terror results? Obviously the campaign conclusion was something of a cliffhanger with Cadia itself being largely controlled by Chaos but the Imperium controlling the subsector space lanes, and so it could have been pushed in either direction were it not retconned, but I'm more interested in how the campaign itself is represented in the new fluff.

They reference the fall of that one prison world, St. Josmane's Hope.
But Eldrad still survives, Wulfen show up before the Crusade and likewise the White Scars leader on Cadia was killed by Kharn before the Crusade so some events definitely no longer line up.
I remember the current campaign book where Guilliman wakes up glosses over the opening stages of the 13th Back Crusade, stating that there were massive losses without going into any details. I always assumed that's where most events that (may or may not have) happened in the original campaign take place now

The Active Defense limitation is for turning passive defenses (like DR) in active ones. It's completely separate from power parries, which are meant to turn offensive powers into active defenses. Damage Resistance (Force-Field, +20%; Directional, -20%; Active Defense, -40%) [3/point of DR] would let you throw up a shield that lasts for one attack, adding the DR to your own (and hopefully reducing damage to 0) if you succeed on your defense roll.

If you want to make an ability based around power parries, I think the best solution would be to take a Crushing Attack [5/1d of damage] with No Blunt Trauma (-20%), No Knockback (-10%), No Wounding (-50%), and Cosmic, Can use Power Parry rules vs. all forms of attack (+100%) for a net +20%. The result would be [6/1d of DR with active defense], which is more points efficient than the above example of DR but is less reliable: you could spend 6 points, succeed a parry but roll poorly on "damage," and get only 1 DR out of it vs that attack.

The head is not a limb or extremity. If you want to decapitate someone or go BOOMHEADSHOT, you'll need to kill them the old fashioned way (them failing a death roll or you reaching -5xHP) with a hit to the appropriate location. The closest thing there is to crippling rules for non-limbs is the oft-ignored option from Bio-Tech letting you crush a windpipe with crippling blow to the neck (plus some miscellaneous rules for cutting off noses).

That being said, it's not hard to kill someone with those sorts of blows. Skull hits are x4 injury and cutting hits to the neck are at x2 and normally swing-based.

I can't help but wonder, with how many people have you played before? Because right around 3-6 months of DMing you should realize that for players to fuck up with no one to blame but themselves you only have to leave them to their own devices.

>> No.69437595

that's true, but there are a couple pretty good tacticians in my usual group, and if they do a good job and roll well they should probably expect to at least partially achieve their objectives, otherwise what exactly are they doing here? listening to me tell a story about how some people got fucked up? how do you strike that balance between "hey you managed to slow down the invasion!" and "ultimately it doesn't matter because the enemy is hopelessly overpowering"

>> No.69438038
Quoted By: >>69438654

The biggest thing is to be upfront with the tone of the campaign with the players. The thing is that xcom is brutal, but fair, and ultimately the players are supposed to win against the ayys.

The feel of a campaign has a rhythm kind of like the steps to a dance beat. Normal games might be a big step forward, little step back, big step forward. Players achieve their objectives, the villain might make some new obstacles and further his plan timetable, then the players push on and get closer to saving the day. Ultimately that gives a more hopeful feeling as player success has forward momentum.

I recommend the two-steps forward, one step back.

If you want to stymie them, consider forward back back forward or back forward back, forward forward back.
That is to say, they achieve something, then the ayys in the next phase achieve success, then they go on the offense, and then the players manage to bloody the ayys and make some gains.
The end result is that it will feel a bit more like a stalemate, that they have some successes but they are ultimately not much closer to their ultimate goal.
Of course if they are stalling for time to develop new tech, that can work to their favor, the players can sort of break even until they get the equipment that equalizes the battlefield.

But ultimately there has to be some sort of forward momentum for the players to have a chance to triumph overall. But it may be a long and gritty road to get there.
Might recommend looking at a movie like Empire Strikes Back and count the steps of forward progress/reverse. It's a pretty good example of the concept.

>> No.69438654

interesting, and an excuse to watch empire, seems reasonable enough to me. i suppose that an aspect you could make use of, especially in the beginning, would be like other squads not returning/shrinking and moving through the aftermath of conventional forces getting wrecked, doesn't need any actual game effect but could help with that atmosphere,

>> No.69439105

Give them always several missions to chose from. You can save one location but in the meantime the other 2 critical locations will be overrun.
Weight every objective with different ressources.
Saving the town will give you personell.
Saving the base will give you tech.
Saving the mining complex will give you resources.
This will force your players to make hard decisions against their morale compass and gives you an easy tool to advance the plot in a dire way.

Singing Stones are crystalline rock formations found within the earth, each cluster emits a certain vibration that echoes a “song” forth from the Immaterium.

Dwarven gemsmiths can refine these stones into usable forms by cutting them and etching tunes upon their surface, allowing long distance communication, the ability to glimpse into other worlds, and the enchantment of tools and weapons.
They also hold a spiritual significance for the Dwarves, who believe that some stones allow them to communicate with their deceased ancestors who dwell in the ethereal halls beyond the world.

I always liked the idea that Oompa Loopas developed a culture that celebrates death as a result of the deadly environment in Loompa Land.

And? My point was that it'd be hilarious, not practical. It's already been long established that motorbikes in any form would be impractical compared to horses as far as this thread goes. Like we've both said: dragoons, and even then, horses are probably better.

Actually the most viable option so far. No need to stop, no need to melee yourself off balance, just strafing runs.

You're not the first person to misinterpret that part of the Vagina Monologues, but I'll be damned if you aren't the first person to use it to justify a pedantic argument involving TTRPGS.

>the Vagina Monologues
Fucking hell, why are women so obsessed with their vagina's? Say about men what you want, but the majority of female "comedy" is just
>Vagina's amirite?
>Have you ever had a period?
>Let me tell you why men are worse than AIDS

>> No.69445689

Because most comedy today is either observational ('this situation I saw was so fucked up') or self-effacing ('let me tell you about this dumb thing I did').
Women are so self-centred they can't do observational well, and hate making fun of themselves, so they mash the two together to make 'pity-me' jokes instead.

Hello /tg/. I'm going to be GMing and I need only your most obscure monsters.
No stat blocks necessary, just weird off the wall shit. If it's the kind of creature that causes your milk to sour, or travels by gusts of winds and leaves mysterious cuts on people's ankles, or stalks you invisibly until you let it pass with an "after you, betobeto-san", it's the kind of creature I need. My players are all savvy and experienced so it's hard to surprise them without making things up whole cloth.

How about the Lithuanian “little winds” (also called small devils on occasion). These invisible bastards are your tradition trickster spirit, they blow papers off the table, scatter the dust pile you’ve been sweeping, tickle the back of your neck, etc etc. Thing is, there’s only one way to get rid of them. You need to, without looking first, throw a knife through the nearest open door or window. If you hear a scream or find blood, that means you got them, if not, then they’ll be back.

Depends on your definition of myth but is have a few

The preyton, a mix of stag and bird that has the shadow of a man until it kills one.

The hidebehind, a tall thin being that lives in the woods and preys on those who travel there. It only let's itself be seen out of the corner of your eye and hides behind trees before jumping out and killing you.

This one is a bit different because there is no specific name for these things, just the place where they are. The tribe that live in the valley were called the Naha but they have since dissappered. But since then there have been reports if headless monsters living the valley, and more then a few headless bodies have turned up there.

>> No.69455914

not a monster, but an encounter I read about here sometime ago.
I wrote most of it down to use as an encounter myself.

They dont need a building to appear, any holy places such as islands, rock formations, waterfalls etc will do.
And the more there are, the stronger they are, imagine Orc WAAAGH.
Legit holy relics of the faith calm them down not to appear. If relic is moved, they are bloodthirsty as hell, and can follow the relic to get it back during the night.

Also a legit priest of said faith can send them off into afterlife.

Usually, if faith says creatures like flies, spiders, scorpions, snakes or even plants, etc are of the devil, the usually abandoned holy property is surrounded by their dead carcasses to a various distance depending how many souls there is lingering around as the earliest warning of its existence.
>some player races could work here too

I have tried to work this into an encounter, but its a bit too out of the blue to be anything other than a quest element.
I have tried to write this into a horror segment, but I dont have necessary horror talent for it.

Monster Of The Week. That's why the stat line is unimportant. It's mainly a "make it yourself" system.

Is it just me or are original myths and fantasies way less interesting than their modern counterparts?
I was reading up on the origin of "geas" earlier, and it comes from Irish mythology. Basically a dude had a curse on him so he couldn't eat dog meat. But then some old crone offers him dog meat, and it would be rude to refuse her hospitality, so he eats it and his spirit is weakened in an upcoming battle.
How fucking lame is that? For all we know the head has nothing to do with it. Maybe he got food poisoning from eating fucking dog meat.

I find genuinely mythical monster are all the same way. They often only do very specific things, or their design is laughable rather than fearsome
