>Also he apparently likes Angron and Butchers in a Dreadclaw
That's smart of him.
He skipped the whole "can be intercepted" issue with the Spartan, and the Kharibdys is cheaper than a Caestus, which the autists will argue about whether or not Angron is allowed in one.

It's ok, they aren't. Unless you were to give them Heavy Chainblades and pulled a frail-WE Redjak theme with S6 AP4 melee of your own.

For the record, by headcanon of S6 is represented as bisecting a mortal in a swing, and AP4 is going through plate mail like butter.

Hear ye, hear ye. I hereby call to order this meeting of the most illustrious Mages Guild!
It's that time of year again where I look down on my mountain of paperwork to see that we have too many departments. Every semester it's the same thing: Teachers in a major department argue and splinter off into sub departments when they really should have stayed together; I'm looking at you, Magmamancy. Right now we've got a "Mancy" for just about every niche you can think of and its making the bookkeeping pure hell, I've had enough! Time for mergers! I don't care if none of you get along, i'm putting my foot down. Those of you in broad fields such as the elements, try to sit down with your sub-departments and convince them to rejoin you. Those of you in smaller fields but with similar interests such as say, Ferromancy and Alloymancy, try to collaborate. I do actually want results from this meeting or I'm going to start forcing you all to work together.

One final note, I don't care how you all do it, but if we could finally get an answer to the infamous "is Ectomancy a subset of Necromancy" debate that would be fantastic.

Welcome to the Mages' Guild. Pick a name and join in! Conflicts are resolved with d20s when needed, or with playing it out. When the thread dies on /tg/, we keep it going on archived.moe. For additional resources, please visit http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Mage%27s_guild or http://collabedit.com/6fvae

You know I see these threads all the time, and I gotta ask, do they ever actually go anywhere? Does anything good come out of them? Or is it just the same posts and suggestions recycled endlessly every time the thread comes up?
Most Ork units should have a points decrease. Nobs should be 14 points, Kommandos should be 8 points, etc.

Also, the main special abilities need a revamp:

>Mob Rule

Add up the number of wounds in a unit of Orks. This is the Mob Rule number. The Mob Rule number can be used in place of the unit’s normal leadership value for the purpose of any leadership test. If the number is more than 10, the unit have the Stubborn special rule. If the number is 20 or more, the unit have Fearless. If the number is 30 or more, the unit receive Feel No Pain +1. If the number is 40 or more, the unit have Feel No Pain +2, replacing Feel No Pain +1.

If at any point a unit with no Gretchin models, and two models or more, fails a morale or pinning test, each model may make a single hit against their unit, at their own strength and AP -. Each model in the unit gets hit once by a random Ork. After this, you may re-roll the test.


Once per game, at the start of your turn, you may activate a WAAAGH! All models with ‘Ere We Go rule become WAAAGH!ing. They count as double the wounds for the purposes of Mob Rule. They also gain Preferred Enemy (Everything) and may Run and Charge in the same turn.

If a unit of Orks, under the above benefits, wounds or remove hull points from an enemy unit then they may keep the bonuses for an additional turn. This may occur multiple times for the same unit. An Independent Character that chooses to leave a WAAAGH!ing unit, stops WAAAGH!ing.

No I4, you stay I2 especially if you want a marine statline for no point boost. You also lose furious charge on non-Nobs units.
Nah, they never go anywhere really. However, I find it fun to brainstorm fixes, like >>51857075. And there's hope that maybe a GW employee will see these ideas one day and take inspiration.
First guy had the right idea. Everyone after him totally jumped the shark.

Funky As A Scout Courier's Air Conditioning Edition

Previous thread: http://archive.4plebs.org/tg/thread/51673415/

Traveller is a classic science fiction system first released in 1976. In its original release it was a general purpose SF system, but a setting was soon developed called The Third Imperium, based on classic space opera tropes of the 60s, 70s, and 80s, with a slight noir tint.
Though it can support a wide range of game types, the classic campaign involves a group of retired veterans tooling around in a spaceship, taking whatever jobs they can find in a desperate bid to stay in business, a la Firefly or Cowboy Bebop.

It's really a downhill ride into madness at this point. But if you have fun, there's nothing wrong with that. Just... Not what most people expect from Traveller.

yeah you're probably right.
troll? This is my first time doing a party. I understand that I am making mistakes. So, I;m also using this as a learning experiance.
It's just so overboard that either you're a troll, your party trolls, or you just enjoy playing satire. Either way, I don't think Traveller is the best system for that kind of play. But hey, I don't judge!

But the GM either does not give a single fuck or passionately hates your party at this point.
Okay. This was our station. I was heavily influenced by Douglas Adams and so I thought it would be fun do do a quest like this.

What in the Sweet name of propane did you just say about my lawn, you little loser?

I am trained in lawn mowing warfare and I’m the top lawn mower in the entire Texas mowing forces. You ain't nothing to me but just another Vidya game in bobby's room. I will drink you the heck out with Alamo beer the likes of which has never been seen before in this sweet state of Texas, mark my Gat Dang words. You think you can get away with saying that stuff to me over my lawn? Think again, loser. As we speak I am contacting Dale and Bill and your lawn is being traced right now so you better prepare for the mowing of your life, maggot. I swear on sweet lady Propane. that lets you taste the meat not the heat. You’re outta, here kid. I can mow any lawn, anytime, and I can out drink you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with Alamo beer. Not only am I extensively trained in lawn mowing, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the Texas Weed Eaters and Lawn Mowers and I will use them to its full extent to mow your lawn off the face of the great state of Texas, I tell you what. If only you could have known what unholy mowing your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon your lawn, maybe you would have held your gat dang beer. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you GATDANG idiot. I will spray Alamo beer all over you and you will drown in it. You’re outta here, kiddo

Hunters are fine as warmachine hunters, harassers and very light assassins, though I am annoyed that they only become battleline under the Lord-Aquilor, possibly the most pointless Lord-type the Stormcast possess.

How's this look for a vanguard list?

the aquilor is deceptively killy and with his gryphcharger he'll typically rival or beat a castellant on dracoth for damage, especially with an artifact and aethereal stalker trait on the charger.

His command ability is only okay until you take the consummate commander trait and a tagalong celestant on foot.

Plus the battalions that require him are all p stronk

So in all, a viable alternative to a dracoth celestant.
it says add 1 to their characteristic every time they attack

as opposed to they make an extra attack that round

you add it to their stat line it stacks
>I am annoyed that they only become battleline under the Lord-Aquilor
I'm annoyed about that too, although more because the Lord-Aquilor's mount looks silly to me. If it had a gryph-charger instead, I'd be content.

So why mail?
We had plate armor in the bronze age.
Romans started busting out mail in the late game.
Then everyone went majority mail for centuries.
Why did it take so long for plate to come back?

Was it just a matter of resources? Making loose mail to cover more square inches w/ less metal than solid plates?

I don't think Ahlspiess (aka awlpikes) had the shovel-y bit historically.

They normally look like pic related (the one in the center)
there is no armor in this pic
that axe seems too large
not sure what's up with the revolver
that crossbow would have less power than if you threw the bolt yourself
hoods are great for limiting vision without adding protection
so not really

Any scale, any genre, any company, any minis. Skirmishers welcome. Rules designers welcome.

>Examples of games that qualify
Mighty Armies, Dragon Rampant, Of Gods and Mortals, Frostgrave, Hordes of the Things, Songs of Blades and Heroes, Freebooter's Fate, Dark Age and anything that doesn't necessarily have a dedicated thread (gorkamundheim).

It's generic as fuck in design, story and implementation.
the games were babby's first fps, the lore is babby's first "humanity is the chosen race".

No meme about it.
Halo is an fps that's genuinely entertaining. The only fps I've played that are better than Halo 1/2 are the Jedi Academy games.

The lore is pretty generic scifi chosen people stuff though, with NotZombies and Cultists as the bad guys.

DHS does not appear on the Weapon & Equipment list and/or is not an XL engine. Ergot...

Well, I could probably make an argument for adding one (1) DHS in place of an engine-external SHS.

I am poking at the idea of putting a SNPPC on the dorsal mount, though, since it is an SLDF weapon. I'll never be able to replace it, and it's got an exposed weapon linkage quirk, but it's sure as hell unique.
So wait, one bit of gear from the recovered SLDF list that is available to the suns as of 44, or unlimited gear from the list to '44, and one bit of SLDF recovered *after* 44?

Really? It's like that?

I don't have any dlc, so i can only start in 1066, and most of my claims were the result of chancellor fabrication. It took me 400 years to establish Britannia alone, and the whole campaign was just an awful uphill slog of fabricate on 3-4 provinces, war, win, do nothing for 10 years, repeat.

Do you know a way I can stop de jure drift into eire? I essentially lost control of sucession after 100 years of controlling scotland.

Get CK2+ mod.

Can't help you with the start date without DLC. A few months ago it was all 75% off so the might do special offers again.

I warn you it's not a quick way to play. It takes centuries for your clan to hit critical overflow numbers. Fill in time with pilgrimage and festivals and shit. Maybe try and resurrect old Celtic religion for that Double Irish flavor.

Well, now I feel retarded. Honestly hadn't looked up there, was just patiently waiting for the CYOA to be reposted.

Ok so, the way I understand it, getting negative freedom points is supposed to make it easier to succeed at escaping (I assume this because you get -5 for becoming the leader of the rebels and -1 for blatantly named Escape Tools).

But then there are things that, I think, should logically make you enjoy your life as a slave more, yet rather than affecting your submission points they instead give you more negative freedom points.
Most notably Safeword, which shouldn't really help you in escaping but rather in not having too miserable an existence.
Others I suppose are more of a mixed bag: eating Meat can keep you strong and better able to escape, but being treated to it rather than slave rations could also make you more subdued. Same Goes for Drugs, they could be used to poison your captors but also to lull yourself into a state of indifference.

So perhaps for some of those there should be alternative modifiers that you get depending on whether you're planning to escape or stay? (Like say, Drugs -3Free if you plan to escape +3 if you plan to stay)

The submission points have me somewhat confused too actually.
For example, Favorite Toy doesn't seem like it should in effect be too different from being assigned mistress' bedroom in terms of effects (both make you spend more time with your mistress allowing for a stronger bond) yet one gives negative sub points and the other positive ones. Granted one is (hopefully) fun for both and the other is mostly for her benefit, but both should make her like you more (hopefully).

I'm a bigass dragon with the power to control the weather, and the ability to make yummy crops grow. Being a dragon means I'm naturally more creative and healthy, and being a dragon god means I can share. People also tend to rest a bit more easily when they think they have a dragon looking out for them.

I highly centralize my power base. I have one, maybe two towns, probably not even cities that I pursue worship in. In those places, I have a swanky temple big enough to hold me if I descend to earth. I regularly do so, people love me, its great.

I have a few demigods, most in varying states of dragon-to-dragon man, though one of them popped out a snake for some reason.
