How to roll dice: "dice+2d6" without the quotes in the email field rolls 2d6. "dice+5d42+23" rolls 5d42+23. "noko+dice+2d6" rolls 2d6 without showing the roll in the email field.

How would you do an African cyberpunk setting? Seems like untapped ground with a lot of potential considering a good bit of contemporary Africa is already basically cyberpunk. Obviously Neil Blomkamp has taken the first steps with excellent District 9 and Chappie and is a good reference aesthetically. Sakawa Boys, the real life Ghanaian voodoo hackers who build computers from parts scrounged from massive hellish tech dumps, are some great inspiration themselves. I'll bump with relevant pics, tell me what ideas you have /tg/.

People tend to forget that immigration isn't just about African and South-Asian refugees. Refugees make maybe the most visible part of immigration, but they're not necessarily the largest group. There is also a huge inter-European immigration going on - and those are usually the skilled workers (their diplomas are recognized in all the EU).
Which is precisely what my source shows. EEA migrants are the only ones with a positive fiscal impact, meaning they pay more in taxes than they receive in services. That's precisely because according to EU law -with the exception of students- those who aren't financially independent aren't allowed to reside in another EU member state for more than 3 months.
You assume that your free market will bother to pay more than is required for one person´s retirement adjusted for lifetime inflation and under the assumption that said person is going to work fulltime within the company until he or she retires.

Otherwise the kids can´t afford to take care of their parents and the working parent can´t afford to pay for the one that raised the kids.

You tried op, was a nice discussion for a while

I always liked the idea of an African space elevator, quite a few bits of Sci-Fi reference the idea. Somewhere like Mombasa would be a good fit.

However sci will have to tell me if we can tolerate being close to the equator, or it has to be bang on, otherwise we're talking further up the Eastern coast into Somalia

Realism aside; it would contrast the literal space age technology with a multi-cultural dynamic city with lots of poor people in it. The essence of good cyberpunk.
You could expand the modern image of India into their extreme end.
I always imagine a cyberpunk India would have a very paranoid filled air because they're always infiltrated by Chinese agents and surrounded by Chinese proxies while being very religious to the point of making AI representations of their Hindu gods.
Also Indian cyberpunk aesthetic always looks cool as all hell.

He'll be considered a faction in his own rights and probably would bitchslap Nagash with all he has.

He'd be a pretty OP Lich that would rival Nagash at the peak of his might.

Is the nine-point alignment system horribly dated, or does it still have purpose and relevance?
166 replies and 25 images omitted. Click here to view.


Attacks from various groups (like the notorious Chick tracts, who were visibly angered by the fact that lawful evil was being used to describe authority and religious figures) only served to erode the notion further, and by the time it reached 3.5 the new (and necessary) design principle of streamlining highlighted the damage already done, as it became a more mechanical distinction rather than keeping its double nature regarding narrative. It could still be used as it was originally intended, but of course its image was going to warp in the minds of the playerbase. Not to mention many writers felt unable to tackle certain natural rising questions, for example, is there an evil knight or antipaladin variant? To which there were many answers, some official, some "official" yet only a few of them were serious and none of them became convention (testament to it was the online number of homebrew attempts back in the day, remember geocities?), until 3rd edition that is, when the blackguard became an Official Prestige class (TM), and boi, was the class shitty.

(still cont'd WTF)


So then the question becomes how is that alignment tends to be misused by a large part of the community, to which I really don't have an answer (Inb5 is shitty, I know you don't like it mang, but it works for about half of us), My current guess is that people are not always willing to become their characters and would rather just play to reduce stress, socialize, bring to life some power fantasy and the like, which encourages superficial play. It's not that I dislike hack and slash, I fucking love me some war campaign or a harsh dungeon crawl filled with dread and the emotion of the dice rolling, but I observe a somewhat consistent pattern: Most of the criticism related to alignments being constrictive by design come from the crowd that will find hard to enjoy anything that doesn't involve slaughter and action delivered consistently to the table (not every instance of criticism though, some critics are actually geared towards freeform roleplay which is cool too), the people that min max their characters, design game breaking builds (or finds loopholes and flaws in any part of the system) and engage in PVP more frequently because they enjoy it and are very good at it. Again, if that's what floats your boat, that's ok; in fact I believe one of these guys is needed in most groups to keep a steady supply of monsters and sessions efficient, but they will struggle with any narrative device in most cases, some will find hard to resolve puzzles or gather clues, some will never play anything that isn't fighter or barbarian like in design; and a small number will actively dislike roleplaying in the table. Unless the other players make an effort to include and reward them, they won't open themselves any time soon.

It's not that alignments are good or bad as much as wether or not they're good or bad FOR YOU. for your group. I like my paladins to only be open for lawful good characters, and instead offer alternatives or make homebrew classes for other alignments; but that might not work well for you. What your group likes may be different from what other people like, what works for you may not be the same for them.

>Good luck finding any more significant dimensions of the human experience
Geez, I wonder ...
I think peole misunderstand the point of the alignment system. It's a filter for bad players and DMs. If a player and DM spend the entire session arguing about whether a certain act was evil or lawful, you need to remove both of these people from your vicinity.

>LMOP, Cleric, go from level 3 to level 4, take Toll the Dead and WIS (had 16 Wisdom and Sacred Flame)
God, it feels good to have a cantrip that actually gets the job done (I have 10 str and 13 dex, so I was counting on the cantrips). I have a rogue (thief), paladin (forgot), ranger (phb hunter) and recently sorcerer (wild magic). We use flanking rules and I feel so useless sometimes (when I'm not expending slots).

>How does the new RPG different from FFG one?
It uses a d6 dicepool system and is a lot more streamlined - less skills and it uses a keyword system. Death is much, MUCH less likely. Overall it appears to be skewed much more heroic than the FFG games, rather than gritty. Players have some limited options to modify the narrative.

>Is it more 'official?'
I... guess? It's based on the most current lore and edition from the tabletop. Whether that's a good thing or not is largely preference.

>Does it make the FFG one no longer valid?
That's like saying previous editions of D&D become invalid when a new one comes out. The FFG one won't be getting new books, but you can still buy PDFs of the existing library (or just DL them).
I was flipping through the Tome of Excess yesterday and I noticed that the Rite of Fleshmoulding can grant Fear (X) to a victim. Now, the rite of fleshmoulding states that for every success after the first you can raise a Trait(X) stat by one to a maximum of six. However, the Fear trait caps out at Fear(4) in the core book.

By RAW, could the Rite of Fleshmoulding grant Fear(6) if enough successes was rolled, and would a Fear rating above 4 do anything except waste points?
RAW, yes. RAI, no. A waste of points. There is a fuckton of inconsistencies in BC like there being two collars of khorne, one as a reward in core and the other as something you can get in tome of blood. They both do different things.
I would time you can't grant a trait rank that doesn't exist RAW. I also apply the Cumulative Effects rule to it, so ymmv.

Obligatory Patchwork recommendation.
BattleCON is nice, and don't fall for the "Don't fall for the Twilight Struggle meme" meme.
Anyone played Manhattan Project? I heard it is tedious as fuck but i like concept, although not enough to just buy it blind.
Me and my GF is enjoying quite a few games together.

Mansions of Madness 2nd ed
War of the Ring 2nd ed
Lord of the Rings LCG
Twilight Struggle
Clash of Cultures
Sword & Sorcery

All of these games work very good with 2 players.
In Mansions of Madness we increased the number of actions per invastigator to 3 while still using only 2 investigators.
Twilight Struggle
Neuroshima Hex
Valley of the Kings
Summoner Wars/Crystal Clans
