Why aren't you playing Age of Sigmar?
The General's Handbook fixed EVERYTHING
It brought back the Renaissance aesthetic, the gritty relatable stories, the ranked armies, the varied gear? It got rid of the Maximum Copyright faggotnames and the joke rules? It retconned the End Times and returned to the post-Storm of Chaos timelike?
Phew, what a relief.
I'm running a game set on an unexplored alien planet. The players totally failed to come up with any good names for pretty much anything they encountered, so I decided to have one of the NPCs with them start naming things. It's become something of a running joke that he is really bad at this, but really enthusiastic about it.
For instance, he calls the creature in the image a 'cowfish', because it swims in water and has a skin pattern a bit like an ayrshire cow. A jumping creature with large mouthparts which are used like horns is called a 'ramhopper'.

First un-named creature: kind of like a jellyfish with a shell. Basically just floats around as far as the characters know.
A small burrowing animal, similar to a rat or rabbit. Moves by hopping on it's single hind leg, like most land animals on the planet.
A swimming creature which can launch itself out of the water and fly some distance, like a flying fish.
Who does first in your group, the dm or the players?
I don't get it. There seems to be demons in warhammer fantasy, but no angels. How can you have heaven vs hell if there are no angels?
How can you create a martial character without any reliance on magic or magic items in a magic heavy setting?
Is it possible?
The only two possibilities that I can think of are either a personal anti-magic field (which is kind of exceptional in most settings) or pic-related.
Why not make one whose supernatural powers are less flashy, but make him better at fucking people up?
>hard to kill
>jump like a boss
>resistant to magical influence
Too late, you didn't specify you were playing 3rd edition dnd
Are there any trpgs that aren't exactly "rules lite", but actually have short rulebooks and not thousands and thousands of words explaining irrelevant garble?
Are there any good games that I can play with only one GM and one player without it being an absolute hindrance?
Most of the games I've found are tailored around groups so they aren't exactly balanced for a solo campaign, and I want to make a one-shot or short campaign for a friend of mine.
Anything's good, but we'd prefer it if it was either fantasy, cyberpunk or supernatural a la darkest dungeon or vampire.
We Dark Angels Now Edition
Who calibrated this? Sub-Edition
In the last thread we talked about how some people don't play this game because they want to play later founding successor chapters and what will be the BaC successor, debate on who's the most versatile legion along with if "adaptability" just means copying another legion happened, talk on who should have been Warmaster who owns the thrones of cheese was also made, some Anons made RoWs after DA talk and just how many RoWs they might be getting came up, and it's better to be a proud Space...

Is there any explanation for what kind of improvements do all the steampunk clocks and devices to steampunk guns?
If not, can you make up one?
"Seems like the recon party I sent to the nearby system has returened, let's see what xeno lifeforms they have found. Scribe Anon, fetch me that dataslate and write down everything I say.
Alright, what type of planet did they travel to?
"Hmm, well it was a warp warp maligned world. Anon, can you remined me to send the recon team to the firing range on deck 45 for "briefing" after we are done here?
Now, let's see if they have studied the creatures eating habits?
Can you help me find a game from my memory, please? One thing I remember about it was that it was post-apo and there was no skill in techhnology as such, but rather techno-shamanism in the vein of adeptus mechanicus, where science was so forgotten, that some people just knew what should work how by hearsay and educated guesses. I really liked the concept, I just can't remember what game it appeared in.
sorry, I really dont remember much more besides this little bit. Just that vivid description of people working tech by the word of elders, and what little context of the machine's work they understood, like tech-shamanism
Certainly not numenera, the setting was after modern-ish tech levels, but thanks
Congratulations! You have just been told by Games Workshop that you have to design a new chaos god for warhammer and warhammer 40k. What kind of god will it be, and what emotion will they be born from?
Fear, self-loathing, autodestructing anarchy; primarly bone on black or dark grey patterns; broken skulls and a 3pointed chaos star as a symbol to represent the depth of a perpendicular and intersecting force bringing disharmony.
Daemons have numerous insectoid and skeletal looking parts.
What art style do you prefer, /tg/?
Suppose this particular game doesn't have the budget for higher quality and you can't say "none of them", you grump.
I am looking for some polyhedral dice sets.
Pure Copper, Brass or Bronze. Not a coating, but solid Copper, Brass or Bronze.
Best I've found are here:
but are out of stock.
I've seen Norse foundries, but I dont like their design: http://norsefoundry.com/product-category/special-edition-dice-set/
Not really - first they would be prohibitively expensive, and thus not really mass marketable / suited for mass production. Second, they'd be so heavy that they would damage surfaces that they were rolled on in many cases particularly if they had sharp well defined edges and points. Third, the metals you're talking about are soft enough that over time the dice would become misshapen and unbalanced. Three serious strikes against those metals. Brass might be the most durable, but good luck finding anything like what you're looking for short of spending a small fortune on a custom order.
Not OP, but that's actually one of the offerings from Artisandice which are apparently (or have access to) a machine shop. Most of their metal dice sets run into the $100+ range and some like the titanium set are $300+.
