What's the stupidest/most pointless thing you've had people argue about for a game?

The other anon got it. The full example is there's a wooden fort and instead of going in and trying to engage the boss, they toss their alchemist fire at the walls, hoping to burn them out. DM doesn't like this and instead say, "Oh it doesn't work because the wood is too wet" without giving any indication beforehand the wood was wet.

It's cheating on the part of the DM and it's the classic example of railroading because the DM is making up bullshit on the spot to force the players in a certain direction. Generally speaking, I only consider "railroading" bad if the DM cheats to take away options from players. If the players aren't engaging your plot hooks and you keep bringing that up, it's fine because it's part of the social contract of the game-- dm spends a lot of time preparing a dungeon so the players should oblige him by taking the plot hook for the dungeon. Players who don't do this and do stupid shit like wandering off in the forest in no particular direction are just trying to cause trouble and will get kicked from my table.

Bringing your shield between you and the source of the explosion would be a Dexterity save, based on the fact that the shield master feat adds your shield bonus to your Dex saves and offers similar ways to reduce damage for Dex saves.

To everyone arguing, would you still be arguing if the enemy was a rogue and the wizard caught him in an enclosed spot with a bead of force?

Would you argue if the GM says "ok the enemy alchemist whips out alchemist's fire........ But it's raining, so fails to ignite"?

>> No.74310048

It's the Wizard's fault if he decides to use a Dex-save spell against a Rogue. And yeah, given that Alchemist's fire is usually treated more like napalm I would question how rain would stop it. It's not even like a molotov cocktail where he needs to light it first, it just explodes on contact with air.

Quoted By: >>74309524

So I'm using Pathbuilder 2e for some stuff, and the one thing I'm confused about is it has prof bonuses to unarmored being +10 ac. Bringing a level 8 oracle's unarmored AC to 23, with dex and I'm assuming it's taking into account small size. That seems a little high to me.
What am I missing or just not understanding?

Could I use the possess object spell to possess armor or a cage that I am inside as a kind of pseudo iron man suit?

>> No.74309524
Quoted By: >>74309593

Everyone has training in unarmored equal to any other armor training provided by your class. So +10 is normal for a lv8 character. There is no AC bonus for small size. Unless you're under the affect of some spell.

>> No.74309593

Totally forgot about the AC per level part of the calculation. Was just flipping through the big rule book and realized I derped on that.
Odd one of the auto fill sheets adds one when you select small size, but I couldn't find it mentioned anywhere, so I was confused about that as well, but I can adjust 1 up or down easily, it's just the larger numbers I was worrying about.
Thanks a bunch.

They do frequently in Battlefront, in both patrician and zoomer battlefront you can kill retard rolly lads by just shooting them while they unfurl for 5 years.
Once they get deployed with shield up you should hope you have cover nearby though, otherwise enjoy your death unless they're braindead retarded.

What I like about the Genesys/L5R system(s) is that the dice track results that are orthogonal to success and failure in the strict sense. Like, you can get extra opportunities or problems or whatever. I'm thinking about trying a Numenera-inspired campaign in Genesys and using those kinds of results to play into the effects of PCs using ancient technologies.

necrons are a good pick. right now they are painfully cheap. their half of the indomitus box goes for 75-100 on ebay all day long. This is probably some of the best value that 40k has ever had.

So your units all have datacards, this specifies what each unit comes with and then there is a section titled "wargear options" which specifies what other options they can have instead and how many options can be included in a squad. sometimes these other options have a points costs attached. If the units datacard doesnt list an item then that unit can't use the item. Example: Intercessors can't use melta guns.

kitbashes and conversions are common though as long as the intention of what the conversion is supposed to be is clear and your models size is about the same as what it's supposed to be counting as. Nobody would give your friend any shit for using, say, building a primaris sergeant with an old dark angels power sword instead of the dark angels primaris power sword. But people will probably not be cool with him trying to convert a dreadnought to count as an imperial knight, since the knight is about 3x as big.

"Counts as" is pretty common too outside of competitive play. Sometimes you want to try out different builds without buying,building and painting them. it's totally okay to ask your opponent before the game if your bolt rifles could count as auto bolt rifles instead or something similar. Just as long as you both can remember which is which. Most tournaments play WYSIWYG however, meaning that if a model is supposed to have something on it's datacard, then it's model needs to physically represent having that thing. If that model dies in battle and is removed, then that unit no longer has that thing. example: if your friend removes the model with a grenade launcher
when he's assigning damage, then that unit can no longer use the grenade launcher.

That clears up some stuff and goes what I've been hoping. Good to know he can have some customization options since I think one of the main reason he wanted to try Warhammer was for some customization in the mini building and painting. We saw a starting out video where the narrator talked about wanting to give his Marine more movement and kit bashed it to give it a motorcycle. That I think sold us on the idea of being able to play without fearing the cost would severely limit us to very basic plays styles and units both on his Spacemarine side and my Necron side.

Also good to know Necrons aren't too expensive either since they were the first army I tired years ago when another friend lent me a small squad to try out the game. I really like their aesthetic and was hoping they wouldn't bankrupt me. I'll keep it in mind to make sure my and his units are obviously what they should and avoid as much confusion as possible. Thanks for all the info anon.

Magnets are a good idea I didn't consider. I'll definitely look into those.

Yeah, that's been the vibe I've been feeling but I just wanted to get the general opinion from people who play the game anyway just in case. Also probably won't be too big an issue when we start out since we'll practice the game first before we try at a game store and I doubt most games stores are open for competitive or friendly play anyway.

Okay so me and the rest of the party are in a desert themed campaign where the nobility are all hedonistic and excessive and all that shit. Fine, right? Well, there are two things that rich people value above all else: largeness and wetness. Food and water is a luxury, so being fat as fuck and covered in water is seen as ultimate decadence. Okay so fat rich people, also fair enough.

But then we enter a sultan's castle and the royal family is described as being completely nude, shapeless masses of large, moist and slick as they wallow in the bowl-shaped depression that constitutes their throne room, like a collection of exceptionally obese walruses that slosh and writhe together, filling the bowl with their gelatinous flesh.

One of the weird details for 3.5 that interested me was resurrection can work long after a person died, up to 10 years per caster level. It doesn't work if you die of old age though.

The one thing this seems to imply is historians resurrecting dead historic figures to question them. Except those figures probably died of old age, or were otherwise unable to be raised. Do like the idea of historians raising low-mid status people from the past to get a better broad base of evidence for their theories. Also that these people will now be very confused by the modern world.

This seems to imply something like cryogenic storage for somebody wishing to see the future. A BBEG might have some ritual that requires a specific solar alignment, so commits suicide in a resurrection trap set to go off a while before the alignment. Less nefarious, it might just be a hedonistic futurist bored with their time. Maybe the person is cursed horribly, and commits suicide with a deal to raise them when a cure is found.

Maybe in !Atlantis, some of the people were in a time set resurrection trap, wishing to see the future. The city was largely destroyed, but their tomb was heavily shielded. Now they are alive, a bit confused, but also angry everyone is trying to steal their shit.

Anyone else have some ideas?

Lichdom and Vampirism both fucking suck. You become a soulless undead, with all of the drawbacks and weaknesses of being a walking corpse. The former requires you to be the smartest guy on the planet just to even try to pull it off, and even then 9 times out of 10 the brilliant genius fucks it up and annihilates their soul trying to make their phylactery. The latter turns your into a murderous beast that is, oh yeah, completely enslaved to the vampire that created you and they can mind control you at will.

These are both tremendously shitty options that probably end with damning yourself to hell even if they work. Because all because you CAN live forever doesn't mean you WILL live forever: every vampire gets dusted by something eventually.

>> No.74288622

Depends on what your mental condition is while petrified. Of you are just asleep/hibernating, this is a solid option for a couple problems. If you are still awake and just kinda... Stuck, that would suck. Guess the danger of the statue breaking is up there with the resurrection system failing. Could have both set up, in case the statue breaks.

Actual campaign idea: At the end of a campaign, for the party gets petrified by something after they stopped whatever. Next arc is them getting unfrozen a couple hundred years later. Some new problem has come up, and a safe sought out the lost heroes. When they finish that problem, the sage hosts a feast in their honour... At the end of which he re-petrifies them to await the next calamity that needs their might. Really relies on the PCs to start getting jaded and cynical about the whole situation by the 3rd or 4th time jump.

What is Gloria-Etalia? It is a setting which sprung up into existence when OP gave /tg/ an Empty map and people doodled things onto it. The world of Gloria-Etalia is one in the phase of the post-post-apocalypse where remnants of the once great civilizations remain like wandering cities of mymics or missile silos considered to be pyramids, but most of the ancient technology has decayed beyond recognition and barbarians control the world. Still the world is far from a dead ruin.

How many moons and suns do we have? What star constellations? What is the lore of this small obscure City?

> The Keepers
The Keepers in spite of gaining sentience still follow the same goals they were programmed to follow:
1. Maintain the Park
2. Entertain the guests
3. Act as if it's all real.
On top of those directives new goals emerged. Combat Androids were created to keep the Fire elementals at bay. Mining outposts were created to provide materials to keep everything running. The Keepers themselves only ever leave the Scar to hunt down someone who stole something from the Park.

> Outside the Parks
The World Scar is a large place, mostly full of plains and rivers. Being on an old Supervolcano it is full of geysers and all the water is building and full of sulphur. The Parks are climatised, but the outside temperature is usually 40-60C. In the 6 months the Scar is closed it goes above 100C. And that is when the heftiest wars with the elementals happen.

The cliffside of the Scar is riddled with Moleman outposts and villages. They often stage raids to steal technology as sacrifices to the Effigy. Thus are hunted down. The only other sentient inhabitant of the Scar are Dwarves. They can simply handle the heat. Various minor Dwarven tribes live there. Some allied to the Parks, others isolationist, some work together with the Molemen and the last ones have signed a pact with the Fire Elementals and are openly hostile with a small nation of their own existing in the scar.

I wouldnt say all, because most likely until last few ages most of the world wouldnt know about it.
I must add i love idea of robot park rangers that still demand dolars from people to enter, but maybe it should tie somehow to it being also gateway to hell that was also mentioned in this thread

>> No.74310010

> Origin
The world Scar used to be a mix of no man's land (like Antarctica,) and national Park (Yellowstone).

4 companies once managed to obtain the right to build theme parks there. The 7 theme parks, were a fad which passed soon, but being located in no man's land the companies kept them arround to do illegal robotics research there.

After the collapse of civilisation only the automatons survived in the Scar. Running the empty parks untill magic returned to the world. The scar is the most magically active area of the world. Thus on one hand the Keepers gained sentience on the other the will of the ancient Supervolcano became manifest in fire elementals which wish to spread death and destruction.

When entrances to the scar were rediscovered it was by primitive people. Who saw everything they saw as holy and divine. And skills taught to kids by play, were actually very useful to those primitives. As such the scar became a place of worship and knowlage.

Someone please past it to 1d4chan as I can't now.

>No one would have believed, in the last years of the nineteenth century, that human affairs were being watched from the timeless worlds of space. No one could have dreamed that we were being scrutinised as someone with a microscope studies creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water. Few men even considered the possibility of life on other planets. And yet, across the gulf of space, minds immeasurably superior to ours regarded this earth with envious eyes, and slowly, and surely, they drew their plans against us...

1898: Martians invade Britain. Their armies of heat-ray wielding tripods are unstoppable, but the conquest is stopped in its tracks when the aliens succumb to terrestrial infections.
1908: The British Empire has grown mighty using Martian technology. In an attempt to quash unrest is before it spirals out of control, an invasion of Mars is launched.
1938: The War goes badly. Despite unleashing a doomsday device to scour Mars clean of life, the aliens manage to sabotage the British fleet and annihilate Southern England before they are finally repelled.
1968: A human-Martian hybrid deserts his former overlords, bringing with him dire news: the aliens intend to dismantle the planets of the solar system, beginning with Mercury, to build a hive sphere around the sun. Together with a Venusian pilot named Ahran, the deserter leads a desperate mission to the second planet to find allies…

Scarlet Traces is a 2000AD comic sequel to H.G. Wells’ War of the Worlds that continues the story well into a much-changed 20th Century. If you like alt-history, pop-culture Britishisms, heroism in the face of certain doom, and more heat rays than you can shake a tripod at you’ll probably like this! In the first thread >>74238104 you can read a straight adaptation of WotW and the first chapter of Scarlet Traces, while in the second >>74263837 you can find the first half of this story >>74279109.

The thing most annoying about her is her utter and complete blindness to what she has done. She can't comprehend how the Primarchs don't know or care about her and would kill her out of hand, she's all about "the Emperor was wrong" when everything that is happening is because of her. And she seems unable to see why the Emperor didn't try to take revenge on her but let her go, which is even more confusing.

It's a level of blindness and deliberate ignorance, and complete lack of comprehension of even basic social understanding or fucking logic, that is absolutely staggering. I find it difficult to believe that anybody could be that monumentally stupid, and if anything it just solidifies how the Emperor was right all along. Similar to Avengers vs X-men in Marvel, when everything the writers did to make Cyclops the bad guy kept on backfiring.

Cats, Rats, Birds and Lizards tend to get all the love when it comes to animal-based races in fantasy, but what about something that despite having fame in redwall, never really stuck or expanded beyond that?
What about the lowly badger as a fantasy race in MORE then a critter-centric setting? What can be done to present them as something fresh or interesting or are they doomed to be a furry dwarf reskin?

So, Necros are considered evil(an affront to God) which is fine. Absorbing sinew and bone to heal yourself is a pretty horrific experience for the uninitiated. How does somoene reconcile that most things done will offend the PC Palidan and may cause him to lose his holy powers. Is there a way to play without being antitical to the partys goals.

I agree, those people are so far into their own autistic way of rationalization. They praise the narrative dice system for giving them flexibility, but they preach RAW and crucify you if you dare deviate. Even when the devs or a freelancer shows up and tells them otherwise, or a fringe ruling that clearly goes beyond common sense, they quadruple down and start REEEEing at each other. For a system of cooperative non-binary choices and imagination, they have very little tolerance for it.

Based. I moved back to my hometown for work recently and got back in touch with my old community. Found a thriving club playing all sorts of interesting and niche games. One of my clubmates has a built a fairly successful youtube channel purely making stuff he's interested in and in a format he wants to watch, and has offered me all the support he can to start my own. I'm hoping that once I have enough stuff shot I'll be able to start uploading, become visible and then I'll be able to promote other people that I see doing good things.
