Psi explicitly doesn't work outside of bio-brains. Infolife can be psi, but it only gains the benefits of it while sleeved in a biomorph. While existing as pure infolife, it would take SV as its mind slowly starts catching fire.

When do you ever not have psychological assistance from your muse? It practically never happens. It's merely a roleplaying thing, which is why I'm against Morph Fever Resistance.
It's min-maxy because you can easily make up 30+ CP by maxing out computer skills and skimping on social skills. I wasn't talking about psi at all.

I think you're underestimating the sheer amount of magical fire power we need to levy at these guys to remove them.

Alright. Then we still need to find a way to remove their island from the equation in as explosive a manner as possible. I mean atlantis legends need to be told in the centuries to come.
>does it make it actively toxic? Or is it just completely dead so that not even microbial life lives in it?
Mainly the latter, but a powerful curse lingers, making it difficult and time consuming to remove
More time consuming than the necessary work to rehabilitate the soil in the first place?

Because that's decades of work.

You have to go every 30 feet or so, dig out a trench 20x20x10 in size, fill it with good soil, and plant grass, flower, weed seeds, and at least one sapling.

Or you have to do it the SUPER LONG way which is to bring in CATTLE with FEED since they're not living off the land and then repeatedly mix in their poop into the dead soil over and over again for about 3 decades.
basically, if removing the curse takes less time than 10-30 years (since the full rehabilitation time for any one area is about 30-50 years of work) then it's inconsequential in the first place.

If the curse takes longer, then it STILL has to be done because having a desert half the size of the continent of Africa is fucked up and going to eventually kill the entire ecosystem.
The curse usually cannot be removed without a century of work, including bombarding it with magic constantly.

Oh shit I just 're read that.
stealing that line
My most memorable one was on some chick in San Diego for comicon around 2010 or so. I was dressed as an orc from Lotr.

I was there hanging with some guys shooting the shit about pathfinder vs ad&d 2e when I saw this chick in a elf costume was really well done, not my finer moment but I thought at that time eye contact meant come say hi. My bud noticed me looking and said he'd pay me 50$ if I could go flirt with that chick for a minimum of 30mins and make her laugh. In almost 2 hours I was in a hotel nearby with her and was handcuffed to a bed. The line I used was, "have you ever been with an orc, once you go green, you'll never be seen"
She laughed hard

You can pretty much guess what happened next.
But I discovered prostate stimulation,Also lost my virginity that day.

>They had enough knowledge to design Navigators.
are you retarded

>They knew about psychics, the genetics behind it, and the nature of the power
They knew, and still know precious little. It is a mutation, and part of why the navigators are so inhuman is because they NEVER understood the genetics behind it and had to keep things in the family.

>Craftworlders are descended from the Eldar that explicitly opposed the very behavior that "justifies" human hatred to them.
The primary hatred towards the eldar came about after the fall, and during centuries leading up to the creation of the imperium. Human colonies under complete subjugation by alien (usually eldar) pirates.

Harboring and collaborating with corsairs, deceiving and attacking potential threats to their completely secret visions of the future without any explanation. Although the craftworlds aren't (usually) immediately hostile, there's fucking plenty of justification in hating them even if you did know the differences between the various individual subraces.
>We don't judge a culture by its outcasts.
And that culture no longer exists. The outcasts ARE the culture now, and while they claim superiority (which, outside of numbers every Imperial in the know will grudgingly admit is true), they won't fly in and murder-rape a planet because "I was bored that day".
Meanwhile, the Imperium is a culture of enforced ignorance and blind faith wherein no life has any value, and knowledge is slowly lost as it is jealously guarded by its possessors to prevent their successors from surpassing them. That's the culture people are defending.

>are you retarded

>What is known is that their origins go back to the Dark Age of Technology in roughly M22[7], to a time of genetic experimentation when many kinds of mutants were engineered to fulfill roles envisaged by their creators.
>genetic experimentation
From what I can tell, that's not actually true. All three of the remaining Eldar cultures were outcasts, basically, in one way or another. Although I would say Craftworlders were less so than the other two, considering they were basically gigantic trading/merchant vessels that had strict codes to keep discipline, which is the reason they didn't fall with the rest of the Eldar. The Dark Eldar, meanwhile, were the worst of the worst, the ones whose hedonism was so bad they had to/were told(not quite sure which) they needed to stay in their own little rooms in the Webway if they wanted to play around like that. Exodites were basically the Amish Eldar, meanwhile.

So yeah, the majority of Eldar culture, the non-outcasts, they all died, one way or another. The remnants are slowly dying now too.

Craft a series of wards that renders you immune to the ravages of time and all the dangers of the world without inhibiting your ability to affect it.
Either make pacts with otherworldly entities for eternal life, or (if you're smart), brush up on transmutation and planar law and BECOME an eternal elemental entity permanently bonded to a chosen plane.
In knowing everything, you reach enlightenment and true divinity, and transcend mortality.
Loose your consciousness from your body so that you and your magic are able to slip between bodies at will, passing from one host to the next as their will bends to your needs.
Become so adept at the flow and command of energy that every time Death or one of its agents comes for you, you are able to drive it off or slay it, until they just stop bothering.
Become powerful enough that the illuions you create become reality, then craft an illusion so grand nobody could deny it, and slip your own immortality in as a rider-clause.
Continually transmute yourself into yourself-but-a-young-person, resetting your age while retaining your mind.

Space Indians are a common enough feature of Space Western type settings, generally being either some kind of primitive alien species inhabiting whatever planet the humans are trying to conquer at the moment, or appearing to be primitive but actually turning out to be hyperintelligent and enlightened (usually in order to deliver a moral of some sort, perhaps about living in unity with nature) but what about making an advanced science fictiony space culture based on that of one of the more well known North American native tribes? By "advanced" I mean "as much as your average space opera civilization". They have spaceships, FTL travel, whatever - the point is that their cultural motifs are based on those of the native culture. Algonquin, Navajo, Sioux, what have you.

How'd you go about something like this? One of the main points of interest/difficulty I'm seeing here is that it's hard to imagine a spacefaring culture without anything in the way of "cities" or "industry", which most of these cultures never came close enough to creating before the Europeans came (unlike, say, the Aztecs, who are fairly easy to present as a space culture by just putting feathered skulls over the spaceships). Is it possible to imagine a spacefaring culture whose society is structured that differently? How would that be? Will they look anything like the average space opera society?

Wouldn't it be wiser to choose one of the cultures that didn't focus on horses, given that these have a lot less of a place in a space opera setting?
They were a decadent, fully industrialized society that nearly destroyed itself but they realised that industrialisation and cities n shit bring evil so they just chill, utilising technology only when they need to.

I guess the Bajorans from ds9 are kind of(emphasis on the kind of) like that?

Anyone else super underwhelmed by the new set?

Megamorph is a stupid mechanic. Most of the dragons have insanely stupid abilities. They went crazy with high mana cards (why does it feel like everything costs 1 or 2 more than they should).

There's a reason Wizards is doing away with the three-set block. Third-sets are always underwhelming.
i'm underwhelmed by the set as a whole, but i really like megamorph, a few dragons and other cute cards have my eye but they're all stand-alone cards that don't get me invested in the set meaningfully

Take some fucking pride in your shit, god damn.
Use whatever is available. Usually PCs end up being dice or certain shape and color, sometimes we break out the minis someone got when they bought the grid. Sometimes pennies, burnt out match heads, whatever.

Although for the enemies, someone once left a set of like 45 ish miniature d6s at our place. Perfect for small groups of enemies, large number of squadrons, etc.
Not him, but I have one. It's works pretty well, just have to make sure you wipe everything down after the session or it becomes a bitch to remove later.

Not OP but they're pretty good. Only annoying thing is the corners won't fold out sometimes once you roll it up. Its like a permanent furl. Still bretty good.

Thanks for the review chaps

Project Purity is barely bigger than a pond, it's hardly something you can build a nation around. And most of the recruits they pick up are useless, they're not hardened veterans by any means. The quality of troops they're getting is way lower than any other brotherhood chapter.

Hey, now. That's uncalled for.

The Traditions haven't even been around for 600 years.
Sup guys, how are your games going? My True Brujah got diablerized by a pc, though in all fairness this was warranted because I was a retard unable to see the very obvious. Will story time if anyone's interested

Another drudge for feedback on my little project.

Last time there was some criticism about the current weakness for elves. It was argued that elves should not have a Strength disadvantage because the use of bows is largely governed by Strength. However, I maintain that the weakness as is does not actually affect the firing of a bow. Sure, it's possible that the current weakness could discourage players of elf characters from investing in Strength, thus leaving any archery attacks lackluster. However, since the weakness also specifically does not affect the Athletics skill, I don't see why an elf wouldn't invest at least a bit into Strength.

It's like a Nosferatu investing in Presence because he wants to scare people well. The attribute remains useful despite the Nos weakness.

Anyone care to weigh in with thoughts or alternatives?

And again I know this project has limited interest, but any input is very much appreciated.
>Sup guys, how are your games going?
