Tell me about the Dwarves, why do they use sign language instead of speaking with their tongues like the other higher races?

To speak is to lie.

This is a truth that dwarves hold above all others.

To speak is to lie.

There is no greater sin to a dwarf than to lie. There are many crimes in dwarven law, but none is greater than to lie. It magnifies whatever event occurred, and puts the soul itself in danger.

To speak is to lie.

And so the dwarves do not speak. They pantomime, they sign, they communicate with their bodies and their eyes, but they do not speak, and rarely ever make any noise.

For to speak is to lie. And to lie is doom oneself forever.

Some say there's a god ip there making those kinds of decisions, call Dee Ehm. Some say his a simpleton god and adds in stupid quirks of behaviour to make up for a lack of originality, forgetting that spoken language is vastly superior in every way due to being able to use it in the dark, across greater distances, and without your intended recipient being aware of you before you begin to communicate

The name of the game eludes me, but I recall there being a game from the 1990s in which player characters were Hong Kong action cinema stars. Not the movie characters, but the actors. And each adventure was them getting through an action movie. There were elements of "real life" in the setup and execution of each adventure, then there was the in-movie stuff where most of the play happened. I could totally see this translating over to a pro wrestling game.

I know at least one of the TTRPG pro wrestling games addresses the distinction between heels and faces and how they get crowd engagement working in their favor, but only skimmed a friend's copy and never got to play. Was it World Wide Wrestling? I don't remember.

Run it in Tokyo NOVA and have people take the punchman class and the performer class for showboating. The third pick can be their choice, from the samurai class for chair and bat usage or maybe they're a mutant with four arms for extra wrasslin. Have players take social damage from particularly rude speeches and such but instead of having them get unpersoned when their social health reaches zero give them the option to interrupt a storyline as a surprise heel.

From there you can take the campaign as seriously or meta as you want. Either play it completely straight with all the ridiculous storylines being true (which is much easier in the ridiculous world of TN, where things like mutants and the occult actually exist) or you can go for a more meta approach where they're all actors but have to keep up the masquerade. Maybe someone catches two sworn rivals having lunch so now you have to hack the internet and delete or modify all the pictures, maybe you use all of your wrasslin skills to assault the headquarters of a rival wrestling federation and fuck up their broadcasts. Once you've got the groundwork of how the fights work down you can go anywhere with it.

And I don't mean fudging rolls, that's for little babies.

Give the enemies unique mechanics that the players have to play around.

This can make every fight memorable if you have the balls to step outside of the game's boundaries.

President/Asshole is always good to know because of how common its sort of rules are worldwide. There's pretty much always going to be a card game that looks like it.

Tell me about your cursed magic items /tg/.

Do you favor items where the curse is a will of their own, attempting to alter their user to better fit the item? Or do you gravitate towards items that alter the user irreversibly, imposing changes as a cost of their use? Or are your cursed items inherently a double edged sword, stronger than the norm, but with a drawback to compensate?

Well, barely cursed, but there was a magical eyescope that, upon seeing through it, you could see an unfocused image of what might be a pretry lady bathing.

paladins by default have more versatility than fighters, the most overspecialized class in the game that by default can hit people with a sword really hard and do nothing else well, and then with the power of subclasses gets to also do one of the following
>hit people even harer
>hit people and also do some kind of added effect that makes hitting them next turn easier
>cast spells, but because you're encouraged to dump your mental stats you'll mainly stick to spells that make it easier to hit people or take hits from people (and you get them at a slower rate than paladins anyway)
meanwhile paladins can passively buff their allies, actively buff/heal them, get a horse and a bunch of other tricks along with being really good at hitting things with a weapon.
saying paladins are only effective against one specific enemy type is obviously bullshit, smite gives them the most powerful ability to "nova" out of any class
meanwhile with rogue you're just plain wrong. bonded accuracy in 5e means that the rogues advantage in skills is actually pointless in most situations, the bard is genuinely "good enough" to succeed 90% of the time a rogue would, while also being a full caster with 9 levels of spells, and being able to help people out and having a bunch of bard specific things rogues have no equivalent for like lore bards weakening enemies as a reaction

unless you are running diablo 2: dungeons and dragons edition where absolutely nothing besides "ability to kill monsters as fast as possible" is the only thing that actually matters, pure martial classes like fighter and rogue are clearly worse than classes that do most of their stuff but also have built in problem solving tools in the form of spells

Ah yes, the age old "But Rule 0!" argument and its perennial friend "Just shit on the wizard more to make it balanced!"

If the system is so broken out of the box that the DM must apply fixes for it how is that NOT a problem of the system? What other product do people buy where the item needs to be fixed right out of the box? The fact that you CAN fix the problem is not evidence that a problem doesn't exist. In fact, it's evidence that a problem DOES exist. This is the D&D Brain Cancer at its finest: fooling people into believing that D&D is not a worthless dumpster fire because you can pinch your nose to block the stench of burning garbage.

If the game doesn't work unless you specifically design every facet of your campaign around making sure that one particular character has a bad time perhaps that's an indication that the character (and the game in general) is not fucking balanced.

Can confirm clerics are A+ blasters in early game. Last two campaigns I was a cleric (storm for one and light for another) and we encountered a ghost at level 2 which I presume was supposed to be a narrative scenario because he was a vengeful ghost we wanted to put to rest and free the mansion on the hill from his wrath. I saw that bastard and blasted him with guiding bolt for all of my spell slots round after round and fucking evaporated him, leaving us free to perform the ritual unhindered (except for the skeletons and zombies but the party could tangibly hit those while I perform the ritual)

When a DM plays along with a player's clever tricks it can make for a very interesting session. What sort of shenanigans has your DM let you get away with?

No magic allowed, magic shenanigans are played out and boring and I can only imagine your nauseous breath wilting the pages of some poor PHB as you look up your stupid spell. I want to hear from people who used set pieces in battles, the DM's lore, or mundane equipment to overcome challenges.

I was in a party where we were following a wizard who was apparently paranoid about people using scrying magic so we did our research with mundane spying methods and managed to lift a few spell scrolls from him to make the confrontation much easier. We essentially just used spyglasses to watch him and took advantage of some of his less loyal guards (he was real fucked in the head) to gain access to his tower. Though the existence of bribe-able guards makes me realize that the DM likely wished us to do it that way. Still was fun.

Another fun one was where we couldn't get all the treasure out of a dungeon in one trip and so we just kind of used scooby doo villain tactics to keep out rival treasure hunters. We dressed some of the corpses of prior adventurers in our gear and impaled them on pikes and raised a horrible commotion if any opportunists stopped by while the other half of our party made a series of round trips in various costumes from the other remains so no one would get suspicious (the DM liked to have 'vultures' who would loot a dungeon for scraps when we left, is the reason).

How would /tg/ make a game based on LISA? What would be things you'd be considering and such?

I used some aspects of Lisa in a game I ran. I liked the idea of a bunch of people adopting weird and flavorful names, and then banding together to commit atrocities.

I applied the concept not to a post-apocalypse, but rather a distant holy land that remained undiscovered, until it was populated by a huge number of survivors from a mass disaster elsewhere in the world. They were sent there involuntarily, forced out of a city that didn't want to help them after rescuing them, and diverted to the hidden land by the 'benefactor' that set the whole thing up.

Said holy land merged with their warped and traumatized perceptions, and granted them all new names, personas, and powers. They gathered together into a bunch of disparate cults, and began to joyride the lands and pervert it to their own ends, most no longer caring if they'd die or not.

I've never played a tabletop before, so take my words with some salt, but here's the general things to probably do or expect.

First everyone in the party has to be in it for the same general goal. Finding a girl, getting somewhere safe, something that everyone there can agree needs to be done for one reason or another.
Next, everyone should be able get their own general way of fighting, and since there's so many weirdo's in Olathe, it can be pretty far out there.
Now this part is a bit dependent on how many players you got or what the story in said campaign is like, but it'd say that being able to recruit and add new folks to the gang is a good step to go about it.
And off the top of my head right now, I would argue that you should make it that it's a bit hard to die (for the MC's at least), but it's definitely possible to get fucked up REAL bad.
To finish off what i'm thinking about right now, make the tone fairly grimdark, but not without good times, and funny events. Bad shit is out there, but it's not all bleak.

When I realized that my players would run the campaign for me if I just loosened my plot-reigns a bit. Now all my games are largely player-driven, with me reacting to and anticipating them rather than preparing a story. I don't hold back, I don't care about making things balanced, I just let the world react to their actions, with a tiny bit of plot moving in the background that they can either react to or ignore until it gets worse.

Being an actual mutant pounding down steroids. Having that one double-muscled thing. Maybe even some kind of weird gene-doping thing (i.e. genetic enhancement) on top of it to just keep growing.

Also eating so much that his dietary needs are expressed in Mcals (thousands of kilocalories) like he's some kind of horse. Like one of those bodybuilders, if he's still hungry (say if he ran out of steak) he orders and eats multiple whole pizzas to fill up.

>sci-fi game where augmentations have gameplay drawbacks like making you pump money into food because your new implanted muscles are sucking nutrients out of you
Shadowrun does this. One of the player-races is "Trolls", and they have to pay double for "lifestyle" (i.e. rent, food, etc). Though in their case, the issue is more about constantly getting things modified to be the right size (custom-tailoring, renting a place with extra-large doorframes and toilets, buying a gun made for troll-hands, etc) rather than food itself. Nutrition is cheap, living is expensive.

Also >>69459045. You don't strictly need to explain that kind of thing. More likely people in the campaign won't even know

What are battlemages or spellswords like in your setting? Are they like the kind of mages who are have all their gifts from a young age (Ex. Sorcerers) but decided to use swords instead of staves or is the magical talent gained from study at the local arcane university? Maybe the said individual joined their nation's army and got free education. I'm not talking about or excluding warlocks here. What are your thoughts about these arcane warriors /tg/?

Why are you pretending that "a word developed two different meanings organically over time" is the same as "some chucklefuck couldn't be bothered to see if he's using a word correctly"?

Hospitalary knights/crusaders who boost their states by injecting viruses or parasytes and chanting prays to keep their sanity and bodies from falling to the illness. Basically they inject rabies and push their bodies through faith to cleans themselves.

The others are poisoned criminales who have experimented with their bodies to allow super human flexibility, low heart beats and toxic blood. They use heavy toxic potions to push their bodies to the limit.

I cant think of any other spellcaster hybrid in my setting.

-In the intro of the novel, Guy Haley says that GW had it be all hush hush over whether the Primaris Angels can fall into the Black Rage or not. The answer they can but since there are no Black Company Primaris models yet, GW decided to make it vague for the time being.
-New Blood Angel supplement is coming soon featuring the Blood Primaris connection to the Black Rage. The novel acts as a tie in to it. Guy Haley is happy that his work is influencing the studio material. It’s part of the efforts to make novels and studio stuff be more in line with each other in terms of canon.
-Novel takes place months after the DoB
-The Warp was being disturbed to an extreme by the Great Rift. Vortexes of raw emotion are gathering so much energy from the chaos around them that they threatened to develop sentience but ultimately, they fail and collapse into nothing. Stillborn gods dying in the wound of the Warp.
-Dante is described the greatest hearted of all the marine heroes. But a few lines later, we see him submerged in the “stolen blood of innocents” in his healing coven so whatever Guy Haley/GW.
-Warp travel in the Dark Imperium era is danger af. Each moment in the Warp courts disaster. Ships in the Dark Imperium have to do short hops, having nothing to guide them. Not so for the Blood Angel fleet. The Blood Angel fleet follow the spirit of Mephiston in the Warp that's being projected from the Bloodcaller. Mephiston is following Sanguinor who is guiding the Blood Angels through the Warp. This allows the Blood Angels to do long Warp jumps unlike the rest of the imperium north.
