Think I finally figured out why your drawings bug me a bit.

You don't 'do' fat. It's all muscle. Yes it's anatomically correct, but it doesn't feel right. The six pack is perfectly defined, rather than partly subtle. It's a woman meaning an inherent extra layer of padding to support children, yet the troll here is carved in testosterone. Yes there are breasts, though they're way larger than they should be.

In my opinion.

Hey kids, do you love esports? Have you ever considered playing D&D but decided against it because the 'roleplaying' element of roleplaying games is for nerds? Well have I got something for you!

RPGSports is this recently started organisation trying to bring the vidya esports scene to tabletop RPG. You may remember seeing them come up in the /pol/ containment thread here because of some minor drama I don't care about, or you may remember them from that one thread that got hijacked to be about 8chanmania. Regardless, the first round of their D&D tournament is starting at 12pm PST and they've finally released their tournament rules so I figured now would be a good time to make an actual thread on it.

For those interested, each match has teams of 4 players use pre-genned level 4 characters to fight eachother using the 5th edition ruleset. For the first 3 rounds of combat there are magic items scattered about the arena, at round 5 traps are introduced and at round 6 an "enviromental hazard" does damage over time to players outside a certain area. The team that kills the most opponents wins.

If that sounds kind of weird then I'm in agreement with you. In all honesty it sounds like it misses the entire point of tabletop RPG but I figure it might be a laugh to see in person how bad it is.

The upcoming match is between 2 groups of ecelebs I've never heard of before but one of them is comprised solely of the only black people in the competition for some reason. If you want to watch the 'match' it'll be streamed on twitch you can find their twitch channel here if you want to watch: https://www.twitch.tv/rpgsports

If you want to read more on how this shitshow is going to be run, their site is here: https://rpgsports.tv/ and I've stuck the tournament ruleset in the post, it also has links to the pre-genned characters. from what I can tell they've basically went out of their way to make the dullest character builds possible and didn't bother writing backstories.

I think figurines and other kinds of physical pieces people use to "help" represent the in game world, as well as software aids and things like that, are actually strong inhibitors of creativity and imagination.

I think sperging out over how a specific combat system is not realistic, and especially trying to make it "more realistic" is a waste of time, both because systems already take in account a large amount of variables which are then abstracted into a few manageable rolls, but also because if you look at things that way, there are many things you can't really have most times - accurate time measurements outside of combat is an example.

I think players who play RPGs just to make their character better than everyone else's - unless that's the explicit purpose of the game - are bad players, and probably aren't the sharpest tools in the shed. I think players who play against the GM are invariably retarded. These two groups should just go play video games, it's more their speed.

Eisenhorn is decent, but not as good as Gaunt's Ghosts. Gotrek and Felix novels are amazing, and I'd recommend them even to people who're not into warhammer. The Grey Seer Thanquol got his own novel, and it was also an enjoyable read. The space wolf novels are also decent, or so I've heard; I've only read the first one. There's also the Ultramarines novels, with Uriel Ventris, captain of the 4th company, as a protagonists. Those are bad, but hilariously bad.

I once read a novel set in Middenheim, with various independent protagonists whose stories came together towards the end of the book. I remember one of them being a thief, and another I think was a knight of the White Wolf, but I don't remember much else.

I think this is a problem with a lot of literature that is it has to be made to fit a bunch of already established material, which forces some awkward creative decisions on the audience, or leads to writers who just have to make up some dumb excuse or loophole to explain things... which unintentionally influences later fiction which might have to also work around those problems.

I find that /tg/ related stuff that happens in the reverse order can be a lot better. Books first, then game. Means that you can have all the stuff already established, and if the author is generous, they can give the game devs bits and pieces of neat lore and material that didn't make it into the books, but fit tidily into canon.

Do any of you have trouble on deciding on what Class to play? Because I sure as hell am, or in my specific case which archetype.

Friend is resurrecting his old pathfinder campaign,and wants to play with new PC's. Well out of the 4 of us i'm the only one that can't pick a class. I wanted to try my hand at a bard as i'm usually a striker of some sort in other games. Thing is I very rarely play support classes.

I looked over the lists on the SRD and none of them are really jumping out at me. Can you help me out?

My problem is the exact opposite. Every time there's a campaign I come up with a dozen character ideas, all fleshed out and ready to go. Then comes the inevitable hand-wringing on my part over which one I should pick, because I only get to play one even though any of them would make a great story. So I toss and turn and end up wasting a lot of time and often try the Gm's patience, no less because I tend to make up my mind just a day (or even hours) away from the first session. Next to that, my general difficulty at grasping the crunch is small potatoes.

You can already buy that same printer I mentioned for less than £150. You just chose to make an assertion out of your ignorance.

Also a $60 book that's 1 out of a series that when you add up, oh no looks like you spent $300-400 in books playing a table top game which doesn't include any other costs like postage.

The cost in the printer is measured in its utility, it can manufacture things in both wood and plastics. My hobby is in miniatures which is very costly, especially if you scale upwards in size.

And the files people charge for are very small, like $6 seems to be an average. I'm not even actually asking for that stuff.

I do get the impression you aren't reading what I am writing as I again am seeking files that are lost to the Web, to create an archive.

Already I have designs and ideas to build boards for boardgames and to reverse engineer models for other purposes.

And troubleshooting for the printers, has got such a huge community to aid you that it's idiot proof at this stage, people have made a websites dedicated to helping you troubleshoot problems with visual aids.

You appear to just assume from things you heard a year or so ago and assume that it's gospel now.

I'll stress this point even further, just for you.

My goal is collect and create an archive of files specifically to be an aid to table top games in general, by gathering from a wide variety of sources so that a comprehensive library can exist. And I seek obscure files that may be lost due to sites going down or from takedowns. That's it paid for content doesn't have to be involved, I was remarking on how one groups generosity and selflessness compares to this very insular outlook you are pushing.

Listen, newfag. A book and a 3D Printer are not comparable purchases, no matter how much you try to insist that they are. For one, most RPG books run 20-40 dollarydoos, not 60, and they are infinitely reusable and never need to be purchased again, provided they aren't damaged. A book won't need new parts or entire weeks spent painstakingly tweaking and fine tuning. You don't need to continue to buy new ink so you can continue to read your book. It's is not possible to leave your book unattended and have the game become fucked up because a couple pages shifted and ruined 90% of things.

I get that you're really passionate about 3D printing, and that's fine, but you're not on a 3D Printing hobbyist board, and despite your spastic insistence otherwise, it's still not a hyper accessible hobby for everyone to pick up. Furthermore, while there are certainly uses that a gaming group could have for 3D Printing, it is hardly a necessity, let alone something that is universally applicable and also in demand. Minis and terrain are plentiful and cheap. Board games come with pieces.

It's not tgat hard anon.

If you want to stick to the game, then go undercover. If you'd rather not, then find a different game online.

If you go undercover, but don't act the part, you'll get outed sooner or later but have a game now.

If you don't play, you'll have to look for a new group which could rake a shirt or long time.

Besides, arguements and such will always pop up in a table from time to time so neither is a "correct" way to proceed. It's really up to you.

Worst case scenario: It's fucking awful and you'll have a story to share and also, you'll be a little wiser for it.

Best cast scenario: It's not at all as bad as you were expecting, and through interacting with these people, you can turn a few of them away from the dark side.

In pathfinder do the polymorph spells like monstrous physique grant you DR?

A lot of sources I'm finding about polymorphs say they do, but I can't for the life of me find a ruling for it.

I know the rule is don't when it comes to inviting your gf to your games, but is there any way to actually do it reasonably as the gm? I know that there are some horror stories here and there, but what if your significant other is not a psycho and/or a bitch?

Not sure if you're bullshitting us or not, but I've witnessed something like this happen. The type of girl that's all "LOL I'M SUCH A NERD" showing up to our weekly games and then causing such a shitstorm with their stupid drama that the group ends up losing several players.

I did it because I was in "wuv" and made a rookie mistake. She was "different". PROTIP: Unicorns don't exist

>>399062

Nah, she didn't cause drama (during the game), she fit in great. But when a woman is integrated in your group of friends and you break up with her, you have an option: break up with the whole group or continue to see her and her new bf when you hang with your friends.

You could also find a group of friends loyal to their older friendship (ie: yours), so they dump her as well.

Granted, it helps if your friendgroup is basically /r9k/ and therefore inherently hostile towards females.

Women are notorious for undermining, subverting, manipulating and destroying these kind of friends/friendships.

>Everyone wants to play 3.5, pathfinder and ironclaw

Why can’t I find a 5E group? Is 5E dying or something? Does it have a bad reputation like 4E?

I just don't think about it. I find the ruling too general for when effects start stacking or for circumstances that are hard to adjudicate. And so, I just default to not using the system in the first place.

It only really comes into play when it's a scenario specifically stated by the book or for when a circumstance is obviously disadvantageous.

5e is fucking garbage.

I hate 5e.

I wish more people played 2e.

That is always the case however.

If you don't follow the meta you end up gimped.

And even in the case when every class is the same at everything, then what's the fucking point?

It ends up being like a Telltale game, you pretend your choices actually matter when in truth you're getting railroaded.

Just my five cents:

>the original elemental gods were the gods of Earth, Air, Fire and Water

>since the Air god knew every spoken word, nobody trusted him during the usurpation

>the Air god didn't care, nothing could really hurt him because he was intangible

>the Earth god and Water goddess decide to have a kid

>this kid's sole purpose is to beat the Air god

>they give birth to the kid

>unfortunately, he is stillborn

>while this is going on, a creator god turns traitor on his brethren

>this is the creator god of life

>primordial life is chaotic and barely functional, a screeching mess of flesh and bone

>the two gods approach primordial life with an offer

>the body of their child in exchange for form

>the primordial god agrees, pours his essence into the stillborn baby god

>the Wood god is born

>life now has proper shape

>the Wood god traps the Air god in his branches

>the creator gods end up beaten, the new King of Gods is the Wood/Life god

>he grows too powerful, and is driven mad by his experiences as a previous creator god

>life grows out of control

>the Water goddess tries her best to protect her baby boy, even though he's an insane lovecraftian abomination

>the Earth god cheats on his wife, has another child with the Fire goddess

>the Metal god is born

>his sole job is to cut down the Wood god

>the Metal god since then is the god of death and industry

Write seven more which contest it and an eight which is "true" but nobody actually knows.
