Hey /tg/, For a some time i've wanted to finally start playing 40k, But the issue is that i'm broke af and can't really afford a considerable army, so i thought maybe i could just proxy some of it as best i can. I managed to find some veryyyy old gormiti figs i've had and i thought about using them as khornate daemons.

I would recommend you get some sort of noticeable and clearly seen "tokens" to represent your units until you get the right figures. I'm sure they'll understand it's only temporary.

Quoted By: >>69456419

That such things would show up in the hands of dedicated Jedi hunters and not riot control personnel, but it is what it is. You also see various saber-resistant materials show up in multiple mundane contexts. Cortosis was used to line the walls of the Imperial Palace. The Darth Bane novels mention cortosis showing up in starship hulls. Neuranium was used in the construction of the Palpatine Surgical Reconstruction Center and at least one statue of Palps. Phrik showed up in Dark Forces 1, a game with zero/almost zero Jedi activity, as the material for dark trooper armor. If something is tough enough to resist a lightsaber, it makes sense that it would also be blaster-resistant and used in things that need to be blaster-resistant. While saber-resistant materials are rarer than "conventional" metals, they're not so rare that they don't see large-scale industrial consumption in the Galactic Civil War era.

>> No.69456419
Quoted By: >>69456736

Only trace amounts of Cortosis are used in armor, partially because it's enormously expensive in bulk and partially because unalloyed it's extremely brittle and also poisonous. You'd alloy it with stuff like plasteel or durasteel in small amounts, probably no more than a 1-3% as is done with normal steel alloys in real life. That will lend those materials *some* energy resistance, enough to stop a blaster bolt from punching all the way through and boiling your guts, but not enough to stop something like a solid bar of plasma, essentially a stretched out fusion torch, from cutting into it.

>> No.69456736

Right, hence why I said "weave" and not a full cortosis set. And while your post is logical, and I'd agree that that should be the norm for saber-resistant alloys, KOTOR shenanigans shut it down by showing a cortosis weave sword trading hits with a saber in a cutscene and sprinkling further swords across the galaxy, even in the hands of thugs who have no business encountering Jedi in the first place. If we go by the assumption that KOTOR c-weave had a far higher energy-resistant material content than GCW-era materials, you could still make the case for energy-resistant materials potentially being the difference between a guaranteed immediate fatality and a wound that is obviously fatal, but not immediately so, still potentially leaving the target on the proverbial 1 HP.

How to make them interesting and relevant?

I like representing them as the "people who get shit done." While the good, evil, chaotic, and lawful lose themselves in endless ideological debate, it is usually the neutral folk that are the first to spring into action and inspire others to do so. Since they are ones who are described as doing what needs to be done for their own good, it would make sense that they would be the first ones to take action against a threat.

What do you do to try to make them interesting in your settings, /tg/?

True Neutrals are selfish opportunists which understand the virtue of discretion.

They're interested in Numero Uno above all else and they want stuff which benefits them. They'll break rules to get things done. They'll steal, mostly from those which have a lot already. They'll kill those who deserve it or who're after them, those that don't...well that costs extra.

Even so, they got standards. There are some deeds they won't do. If the criminal classes kill each other, many would let them get on with it so the hangman has an easier time. But when someone burns down an orphanage that gets a lot of negative interest. They have no truck with either extreme legalism as that often wants them brought to justice or blindly raging against the machine for no reason. The Machine has it's uses, but it's not something that confines this individual.

Mike is Lawful Evil for sure and a great example of how not everyone with that alignment needs to be a cartoon villain. He's a family man with a strong code of honor but is also a career criminal that will do absolutely anything to get what he wants, including murdering just about anyone. When push comes to shove even the "family man" aspect of his character takes a backseat to self-preservation, we see that he isn't above abandoning loved ones in potentially dangerous situations when there is a risk he'll be arrested.

tell me about your favorite encounter youve ever played

>> No.69445099

It was in a homebrew E6 Pathfinder game, our party was a group of contracted mercenaries for a powerful merchant's guild, acting partly as a living PR stunt by way of our big bronze fantasy mechas. We'd been sent to a mercenary nation to participate in a tournament, the grand prize for which was citizenship, which the guild wanted us to have so they could trade freely there using us as a proxy.

The first few rounds were pretty standard, spear battalions and a few beastmen, until we found out that a low-level demigod called Ajax was also in the running, apparently hoping to achieve apotheosis through fame. We even sat in on one of his matches and found ourselves swept up in his mythic presence as he riled up the crowd before impaling his opponent, a fire mage, against a stone wall with a single javelin throw.

One of our party even went drinking with him before our match, and we went in ready to get our asses kicked. At the starting horn, he closed the distance in the bink of an eye and carved a gash in my mecha's bronze chestplate with minimal effort.

The fight went on for a while, and eventually after doing a chunk of damage to him he started raging. He was darting between us, smacking us about with impunity. He knocked out the rogue, put me on 1HP before KOing our kineticist, and I finally put him down with a final valiant charge. There was a great moment of triumph as the crowd ran down into the arena and tried to lift me onto their shoulders, all of us got our citizenship tattoos, and afterwards we all went drinking with Ajax, who was pretty chill about losing all things considered. We rolled on drunken debauchery tables and I woke up in a ditch while the kineticist woke up in a bet with not one, but two women, and that was that.

I think what made this particular encounter memorable was a combination of the hard-fought, edge-of-your-seat victory, the climactic impact of the situation, and the setup/characterisation that our DM did beforehand

I've been tinkering with a firearm-oriented system for a while now. Most of it is based on opposed rolls, so it could potentially be used for PVP. Stats are as follows:
>Reflexes: Turn order, perception, reactions
>Strength: Recoil control, prerequisite for larger weapons, melee damage, health
>Skill: Prerequisite for advanced techniques like sniping, dual-wielding, and explosives
>Agility: Movement
So for example, to determine if a silenced gunshot is heard, the shooter makes a Skill roll, anyone nearby makes a Reflexes roll, and whoever gets the higher roll succeeds. Likewise, if one person tries to disarm another of their weapon, the attacker makes a Strength roll and the defender makes either a Reflexes or a Strength roll. My current issue is determining which dice to use; either d6s (for ease) or d10s (for divisibility-by-10 autism). Wat do?

>> No.69450114

That's more or less what I had in mind, but it's hard to pinpoint which skills you can actually diversify and how.
Just for the record, my game's stats are Body, Mind, Soul and Feel.
Yeah, but I'd prefer to have specific rules instead of engaging in enternal arguments with people who can think of a way to srtetch the meaning of words until they no longer have a meaning and thus think they are technically right.

So this setting is getting put on the backburner then?
The message is clearly they regret nuking fantasy, that is what everything thinks so that's what counts. Why would anyone invest in this when GW telegraphed their intent to Undo 3 years in advance. If they meant otherwise, why would they rush out such an early announcement with such fanfare? So much for being a better seller than its predecessor.

Hopefully you guys who bought in chose stuff that'll will be ported back to WHFB. So anything but snorecast.

Depends the quality with which it's handled.
Can be an interesting bit of character development, how they react to this person, with scorn? Using them as a sort of replacement, and hating themselves for it?
Ultimately, it's pretty simple to determine by asking the most important question: How cute are they?

>> No.69444602

It's perfectly okay as long as they don't try and push the relationship a specific way.
The PC could love the new NPC as well as she could be uncomfortable around him, because he reminds her too much of what she's lost.

>Turning a DnD player into a roleplayer is impossible.
People like you need to fall in an industrial meat grinder. If this dumb bullshit were true we wouldn't have roleplayers at all, because D&D CREATED THE GODDAMNED INDUSTRY. Without it you'd never have Fate or PTBA or White Wolf or whatever the fuck faggot game you like to play while prancing around in your fedora and underpants.

You can roleplay in whatever system you want, even no system at all; the only variable that matters is the people involved. Roleplaying is entirely independent of the system and everything to do with the player, the DM, the plot, and the setting (in that order). I've been doing this shit for nearly 25 years, and I've seen people go murderhobo in every system I could get a group for, and I've been in just as many D&D games where no one gets the CRPG stupids.

It's not D&D's fault you play with retards.

It's a gmless game that plays in one sitting and it's designed to emulate a Coen brothers style dark comedy movie. Structurally, every character has some kind of relationship with the characters on either side of them, relationships get needs, often conflicting needs, attached to them, locations and props get defined, and then play starts. So the setup is a weird and volatile tangle of interpersonal relationships with dangerous or unhealthy drives and whatever set-dressing you need for your aesthetic.

Then you take it turns to have a scene for your character. You can either set how your scene ends, or how it begins, but not both. So, for example, Dr. Venture's player might pursue his need for cash by setting up a scene where he's talking to some general about selling his latest 'invention', and you start playing it out, but at some your fellow players get to judge in things will go well or poorly for you, based on the roleplay, and you have to follow that.

Or you can decide you want to control the outcome, but then someone else sets the scene, and they don't have to be kind. Maybe they describe Dr. Venture waking up to find the IRS hauling filing cabinets out of the lab, and now you have to roleplay that. Things tend to devolve into, as the name suggests, a fiasco.

What the fuck is "real world logic"? You're talking about morality and everyone's moral compass is different.

You're basically saying anyone who disagrees with me and thinks necromancy isn't inherently evil is evil.

But when someone acts in the interest of being good even if they are wrong they are not inherently unchangable, inflexible, self-interested, stereotypical and boring evil people.
What the fuck are you on about with this autism?

If they need to really rationalize it to feel better, they're not really evil.
Evil is rationalized through things like gaining more power.

Good people can rationalize and do evil things. Evil people just do things for themselves.

Though you do highlight a good fault in the DnD alignment system; most people who do evil things, or even can be defined as basically evil, are not sociopaths or psychopaths.

In DnD undead is always evil. There's no reasoning with it and trying to argue and moralize over it in the middle of a game is a good way to lose friends.

I decided to start with age of sigmar rather than 40k since I much prefer fantasy aesthetics. However, most of the players in my local stores play 40k. Did I make the right call by going with what felt most interesting aesthetically, or did I shoot myself in the foot by limiting my ability to play with people?
