Hey /tg/, what makes a game Ameritrash or Eurostyle?
A new RPG come on the market, and at first glance, it seems you'd be interested in playing it, due to its system or its setting. But then, the designers announce they intentionaly created a majority of useless, subpar or simply obnoxious to have character customisation options, and mixed them with the few ones that are actually playable.
Do you still try to play it?
D&D is all the proof you need that yes, obviously people play it, because at the end of the day it comes down to playing with people.
High-brow games design theory discussion is largely irrelevant to what's popular and enjoyed by the most people, the game with the biggest, shiniest monsterbook and the most players still wins even if the rules are a hot mess.
Hey guys. I just dug up some old archenemy sets I threw together a while back. Was wondering what you might think of this Rakdos one.
I always liked the idea of boss fights in Magic, and Archenemy is the closest thing we've gotten to that sort of thing.
Guardsmen! We have exited the warp and are inbound to Praetoria. We dock and disembark in an hour.
>Navigator guides the cruiser down to a less populated region away from the main hive clusters, to a smaller city in a temperate northern countryside. The old troop transport follows. The dock is reached and the hull doors open.
>Training with the phase sword among the Exorcists training grounds.
So, which Primarch do you think it is?
Do you guys have any portraits to share from the elona costum folder?
Man, this takes me back.
Do you need just portraits or will in-game sprites fit too? Because for them there's an entire generator, better than native in-game one (though, to be honest, anything will be better than that).
posting my old character. I also have a bunch of stuff i saved from pixiv, coming up.
>Elona keeps its graphics in .bmp
Well, this is inconvenient.
this guy has a lot of Elona stuff, including portraits. The password for archives is always Elona.

"We heard you like games. Nerd games. Game of Thrones. That sort of thing. Well, our analysts have determined that what the market is really craving right now is a game show about geek stuff, and we're not going to do this thing half-assed."
"We want you to help us design a survivor/ninja warrior/whatever it's called when people dress up in the woods and pretend they're wizards-"
"Yeah, that. A survivor, ninja-warrior, Larding hybrid. Maybe a few other things mixed in. I don't know, I'm not a fucking nerd. But, I got a big budget and big expectations, so how are YOU going to help ME design this fantasy elimination deathmatch game show?"
>elder gods steal heroes from all universes, time and space to compete in real life skirmish war games
>series is a mix of team member perspectives, the elder gods politic dicking over and a lighthearted sport commentating ala bloodbowl
Grab nerdlings that their friends "volunteered" and dress them as there last played character that again their friends supply us. We give them hard, properly weighted LARP weapons and send them out to survive on an island. The goal is to be the last man standing whether through "combat" or just outlasting the competition. The twist? Out of 100 contestants 10 are from military/survival background. Knock even one of them out you win, last 5 days as last nerdling among survivalists you win, survivalist...

Your party rogue/thief/sneak has been up and about looking to do something unlawful.
This guy appears on the scene and arrests him: wat do?
Is there any information as far as how heavy of a bow female archers could conceivably use? I read that the average medieval longbow is estimated to be between 80 and 120 pounds of draw.
>High Lords of Terra : The time has come. Execute Order 666
What if the entire Imperium turned against the Marines and sought their destruction? How fucked would be the marines? Can they survive?
Nothing would happen because the Imperrium is so bogged down in beaurocracy that the order would never make it outside the Administratum anytime soon.
For all we know, the order might have already been issued but the spires of beaurocracy in the Imperium are so confused that by the time someone will rediscover it again the Imperium will be already extinct
Isn't order 666 the one where the grey knights are ordered to assassinate the emperor? (though, god-emperor alone knows why)
This, to my mind, sums up the entirety of the administratum, if what i've heard and read is anything to go by
That depends, are we talking the usual approach taken by people in a setting where charging through a minefield while under fire so you can try to cut a tank in half with a giant chainsaw is a valid tactic or are we talking a smart approach?
/tg/, what system woud you use for running games based on great like Gravity Falls and Steven Universe?
So my players again managed to wonder off into some region, I was supposed to flesh out waaay later in the campaign and I'd appreciate help sculpting it.
Basically we have a D&D like empire, led by immensely powerful ecclesiarchy and archmages' guild, stretching over two dozen conquered worlds. Enslaved armies, dominated armies, undead armies, arcane armies, flesh- and mind- sculpting, mega-cities in layers, dragon rulers and empire-loyal beholder leaders of entire fiefs - its' all there.
Now, we also have The Rebels which PCs want to contact...

What system does magic well? In a way that's not free form and isn't overly complex but creativity is encouraged. It would also be nice if it had quick cast spell and long rituals to add to the flavor of the game.
so i'm just reading through this book and it seems kinda fun, if over the top as fuck.
Any of you guys ever heard of it? is it any good in actual play? what's your position on the clearly superior alpha konsortium? or is it even available outside of germany?
oh yeah, sure. my bad.
the setting is basically that during the first mega-con war some (unknown) asshole launched nanobots into the atmosphere wich block out the sun, causing a new ice age.
what little bits of the planet are still habitable are mostly ruled (either indirectly through puppet governments, or directly through whatever means) by the same mega-cons that caused the ice age in the first place.
the last neutral grounds are totally-not-murrica, totally-not-mad-max-australia, and africa wich is still a wartorn shithole.
the players, as far as i could gather so far are meant to be shadowrrun-esque black ops or terminator-style freedom fighters, or whatever seems fun at the time.
a big focus of the system seems to be the rule of cool, even to the point where some game-mechanics are literally rule of cool elements you can buy for your character
tl;dr: frostzone is a post-apocalytpic, cyperpunk, dystopian, science-fantasy rpg.
the world is in a new ice age through mega-con shenanigans and players take on roles somewhat similar to what you would do in shadowrun/cyberpunk
