The only time I've seen older women play is because they were married to a board game nerd and picked it up from him. Sometimes a girl will play with a group of guys if she is invited, but I have never seen a group of girls spontaneously get into board games, especially fantasy and sci-fi genre type games.

They do form groups, but you don't go to the places where they run. The thing is, they're more attracted to fanfiction and if they do roleplaying, it's going to be freeform. The girls who roleplay actively tend to view the math as cumbersome, which makes this entire premise feel misguided and pants on head retarded.

I stopped paying attention to South park right around where Randy became the idiot of every episode. The few times I have played RPGS in a group with people its been majority dudes. The few times where women were in the group it was A.) some dudes GF who CLEARLY does not want to be there or B.) just some neckbeard chick. Ive heard stories by other people who play that some chick came in a destroyed their group and I dont find that hard to believe.

Ok, so let me get this straight...
You've made a thread on /tg/ asking "what's the beef?" when no-one's actually asked you to stop, or complained, or done anything untowards.
Your GM has made a statement, not a complaint, that "you are injecting your fetishes into the game". Apparently, your GM is perfectly OK with this (?), if they are your fetishes. However, they are not actually your fetishes, you just are playing a character who's a sick fuck.


Let me ask you, what is YOUR beef? Why do you need to scream at people who say you have fetishes? You could just say "haha I'm just playing my character bro". Why are YOU making this a big deal if your GM apparently doesn't give a shit?

Talking to animals is such an underrated power.

It might not be strong for combat unless you have the really strong/ animals like dragons. But even with less powerful animals, it would a very useful power before and after a battle.

Having soldiers that can speak to animals can help with reconnaissance of the terrain and the enemy. It can help you with keeping the enemy from doing those. It can harass the enemy supply lines, foraging parties and be a nuisance in general. It would more or less occupy the same space as light cavalry but with a few advantages.

Hell forget about Medieval-esque settings, even in the modern times, speaking to animals can be such a powerful tool. Most of the losses that modern wars are from ambushes. Imagine if every US marine squad was screened by a pack of dogs or crows or some other intelligent animal.

The only way to counter the Wargs (forgive the ASOIAF terminology) would be to have Wargs of your own. Kinda like an airforce. Wargs might not win wars but it gives your soldiers advantages to win it.

People tend to be too focused on battles and combat itself. Things that happen before and after is equally important. So here is the question, what fantasy powers have interesting uses outside of battles.

What you suggest would make for a good nature vs human story.

Which I kinda dislike.

I would argue that animals could both be threat and an advantage. So there would be a balance. Forests around a city might be cut down but the Forest that are left would be patrolled and information from animals could be useful.

I know I'm catching this thread in the tail end, but I'd still like to know: Would magic ever make a return in the LOTR world/Arda, or after the 3rd age was it basically over and mundanity would set in forevermore?

Am I right in my understanding that magic in their world is more or less a non-renewable resource? That once it's used up the world is made 'less' in varying increments and once it's gone it's just gone and that's all there is to it? Because I remember reading somewhere that magic could also be not just preserved, but actually 'put back' into the world through certain marvelous acts of creation- in regards to making something so amazing that it, itself, is supernatural and so forth.. Mirroring Eru Ilúvatar and the whole narrative of "creation is the most powerful ability".

I suppose I'm wondering if the Elves had not been so stingy with their Mallorn trees and other such gifts, would the world have 'carried on' better and Sauron's gift of preservation less tempting.

>> No.69457946

>>69457760
>Am I right in my understanding that magic in their world
Here is the crux of it. The entire world of Middle Earth is detailed in the Red Book of Westmarch, itself containing the writings of Bilbo and Frodo Baggins. It was left in the care of Samwise Gamgee when the pair went beyond the sea, and in time Pippin returned to Gondor with a copy of it. The book was transcribed, edited, updated for more accurate geography and translation of Elvish, and eventually Pippin's Great Grandson got a copy from Gondor.
This is important because for meta-narrative purposes Tolkien 'found' it in the same manner that the Red Book of Hergest originally penned in 1380 and donated to Oxford in 1701, noted for containing the Mabinogian a series of Welsh tales and one of the incredibly few sources of such and then translated and transcribed by Tolkien into English.

It's literally Middle-Earth, because it eventually turns into the real world. And you don't see any magic around you, now do you?

Albrecht is a Cleric (First Estate). He answers to the Bishop of Six Falls.
Louis is a Knight (Second Estate). His is the vassal of Baron Summerland. Louis holds the grant of a very small farm.
Honorius is a Wizard (Third Estate). He is also the vassal of Baron Summerland because his family grew up on the Baron's land.
Gwendolyn is a Thief (Outlaw). She answers to nobody.

Standard Method (core D&D):
The group hears rumours of a dungeon in the wilderness. They march off, loot it, and return to town with 100gp each. They spend the loot on potatoes, coffee, books, and plate armor. Everything is fine.

Feudal Method:
The group hears rumours of a dungeon in the wilderness. Louis asks around and finds that the area is owned by Baron Greenfield, who is an ally of Baron Summerland, but whose seat of power is far from the dungeon. The players safely loot the dungeon and return to town with 100gp each. They spend the loot on meat, horses, and donations. Baron Summerland hears that his vassals have far too much money during peacetime. He shows up with a bunch of knights and interrogates them. While Louis and Albrecht are spared torture, Honorius is beaten nearly to death (below the waist, because he's a wizard), and Gwendolyn is hung from the nearest tree. The Baron finds out about the dungeon and the looting. Fearing war with Baron Greenfield, he revokes Louis' grant and title, and sends him with an armed escort to Baron Greenfield's seat of power to be tried and executed as a commoner. Honorius is kept as a battlefield mage and never trusted again. Albrecht is dispatched to the Bishop of Six Falls who severely chastises the poor priest and threatens to defrock him.

The problem with this faggotry is that it doesn't actually make sense.

The difference between the good and bad end is that in the good end everything magically went fine while in the bad end everything went wrong. This doesn't say anything particularly insightful about the setting or how roleplaying games should be run. It's about as useful as a page of text describing in lurid detail a player character getting raped by orcs after failing a saving roll and then contrasting it to a page of text about the good end resulting from not failing that throw.

There's no lesson to be drawn from it, it's self importance and self obsession. The author thinks the author knows best and is going to great pains to try and convince everyone reading that they should be trusted because they write well enough to put a sentence together.

What do you mean? I see only landed knights, valuable mercenaries, aspiring loyal freemen, & sanctified academics brought together by circumstance to be those who answer the call when the terrible fantastic cause strife & ruin in our lands.

Ask yourself, if we supposedly live in such peaceful times to see heroes as vagrant rabbles then what need of you for heroes? For heroes rise when the night is long & true justice is uncertain. They hold back the beasts that run amok in lands unseen by the lord’s who seat them! Civilization comes with the sword, & heroes are those who wield it! If they come to your door harken to the baleful call for YOU are the evil that slumbers. YOU are the slayer of peace & the beast that eats fat on dispair!

1) Humans aren't machines. We can't spend our days researching everything, we rely on one another to parse what's relevant and share the info in relevant spots. If I publish a module, you're perfectly in your right to tell all DMs everywhere exactly who they're giving their money to. Hell, I'd argue that's the morally right thing to do if I've declared myself anybody's enemy.

2) Your personal attack is wrong on two points (the what and the how), but more importantly it makes the assumption it's hypocritical to be careful about RPGs but not, for example, food. Again, no, that's simply human. We don't have the capacity to be on the lookout every day, about everything. That leads to burnout. You are allowed to pick and choose the things you care about, it's not a binary all-or-nothing. And frankly I find it hard to believe that you care about exactly nothing.

What sort of buff would you give non-casters to match up with the benefits of being part of a guild provide in 5e to spellcasters?

I'm pondering 'Even if you're not a spellcaster, you can use the guild spell as Ritual Spells' + '1/day, if you don't have spell slots, you can still cast any spell on your guild spell list (Max level of what a wizard of your level could cast).

I just re-watched the video though the guys called Mortifiers "shooty Penitent Engines" they really are not as they can be given the exact same wargear as Penitent Engines.

What makes them different is they are mini-Penitent Engines with only five wounds, no zealot, , T5 and only ignore wounds on a 6+. This means against basic firepower (AP0) these guys are less durable than a bullgryn.

Though with that said they can be given heavy bolters which does give them some ranged damage but they are still primary a melee unit.

>An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth is by no means anything but Lawful and Good. Prisoners guilty of murder or similar capital crimes can be executed without violating any precept of the alignment. Hanging is likely the usual method of such execution, although it might be beheading, strangulation, etc. A paladin is likely a figure that would be considered a fair judge of criminal conduct.

The Anglo-Saxon punishment for rape and/or murder of a woman was as follows: tearing off of the scalp, cutting off of the ears and nose, blinding, chopping off of the feet and hands, and leaving the criminal beside the road for all bypassers to see. I don't know if they cauterized the limb stumps or not before doing that. It was said that a woman and child could walk the length and breadth of England without fear of molestation then...

Chivington might have been quoted as saying "nits make lice," but he is certainly not the first one to make such an observation as it is an observable fact. If you have read the account of wooden Leg, a warrior of the Cheyenne tribe that fought against Custer et al., he dispassionately noted killing an enemy squaw for the reason in question.

Worship of any entity other than God the Father is considered heretical in Christianity Orthodoxy (not to be confused with the various Orthodox Christian churches).
JW essentially derived their religion from Christianity but worship Abaddon, the Christian Angel of Destruction, in addition to God the Father AND God the Son along with practicing an assortment of other previously established heresies which are outside the confines of the post in question.
As this is what their entire doctrine revolves around, this makes JW a heresy of the Christian religion whether or not the various mainline branches acknowledge them or not.
Mainline Christian churches rarely declare specific sects to be heretical, but Dogma and Teachings, which in turn determines if any particular sect is considered heretical.

Those are all incredibly mundane and ultimately don't put Sanguinius above Fulgrim. Off the top of my head, Fulgrim is better for the following reasons:

>Actually killed a primarch and left another in critical condition
>tried to kill Perturabo and when he tried to turn the tables on him, Fulgrim just became immortal
>brought a planet into compliance with just six of his kids
>The only primarch of the only legion to BTFO of the Ultramarines after the HH

>four arms for jacking off
>he was never angsty about the future like a certain somebody
>yeah, his sons are drug junkies, but Sang's are barely civilised cannibals that snap at the worst possible moment and have contributed just as much to civilian deaths as any traitor legion. There's even a chapter that ritually sacrifices civvies to something "that totally isn't a daemon, we swear". Rocks and glass houses buddy.

Alright /tg/, you've had my back before lets see how it this time. Help e world build around the idea of clowns, jesters, and the like being a supernatural force

Chucklevoodoo in Homestuck was set up like the whole dark carnival thing the Juggalos had going. There's Pennywise and Sweet Tooth and Twisty all as mass murdering threats while there's a;so some goofier examples like that one clown god from DBZ and everything in Killer Klowns From Outer Space.

So my idea is to represent chaos and trickery as maybe an influence that possesses or influences people.

People under the influence probably have some combination these clownish things
> enhanced need to pull pranks, varyingly destructive
> an absolutely inhuman ability to withstand pain through squash and stretch or just a monsters constitution
> enhanced charisma for jokes and exaggerated goofy looks that's very uncanny
>hammerspace for surprise gags

Starting with a Hamsteak image probably wasn't a very good idea.

In any case, I would portray it as a, well, somewhat mocking take on the sorts of secretive orders and mystic cosmic forces you see in fantasy and shit. Perhaps they realize that reality is an illusion, and are doing the equivalent of making hand puppets on the shadowed wall of Plato's Cave. Perhaps Comedy is a powerful extradimensional force reaching into our reality for wacky joke purposes. Perhaps it's just the only kind of magic that works. I'd maybe have it as an off-brand The Force, at least in that laughter connects all things but it's way too easy to get caught up in the jokes and start doing fucking extreme shit to get a cheap laugh.

I would also show the slow...degradation of clowning around over time. From the heady days of the noble court jester to the golden age of the circus clown, and then the descent into mockery of mockery and horror clowns. I Imagine bands of heroic clowns desperately trying to keep the fetid clowns of today from metaphorically spraying seltzer on the last embers of their noble tradition.
