We've got multiple posts in this thread alone.
Do you really need more? Or, are you simply trying to pretend that a sample size that includes yourself is not suitable?

In just about every "BBEG" thread, the distinction is either unimportant or nonexistant, and it's largely interchangeable with antagonist or villain.
Jesus christ, autist. We've told you what it actually means. You pretending to not understand is indicates nothing but your own retardation.
>Which means... what? He's the villain? Why not just call him the villain then?
Because you can call it the BBEG.

Still waiting on actual fucking proof, Saltmine. I know it's hard. But until you can actually show proof, you fall face first into horseshit on step 1.
You say fun, and I say dumb, for the reasons already provided.

You like to perpetuate dumb jargon because you think you're being cute. What's wrong with pointing out that's dumb, and your brand of "fun" is either pretending or genuinely being stupid?

Guess they gotta sell those fliers somehow, but man this seems like a silly choice. I mean, 40k fliers are just too big to really do much with. Smaller models work great for this sort of thing unless they plan to either use huge tables or do exclusive 1v1 fights.

All of the fiction that you love is overwhelmingly likely to have been made by leftists. There's no way around it.

Don't blame Disney, either. George Lucas contributed hugely to Obama's election campaigns. There's no escaping it.

You love liberal values, just as long as they're disguised. You're like a gay man trying to pretend trannies count as women.
What really disappoints me about this is that back when GW announced that one of their first new specialist games would be a dogfighting/Aeronautiva-type game, I was hoping it would actually be its own separate system like Battlefleet Gothic; not another boxed game (something I'm starting to get tired of).

Especially since they're just using the models they already have which, I will say, is understandable to a point; but I can't stand most of the GW flyer models. Only about half of them look attractive to me (Dark Eldar, Eldar, and the Valkyrie). I was really looking forward to using some Imperial Navy fighters like the Thunderbolts or Avenger, and have it be more on-par with X-Wing in scale. Some anons bring up a good point in that GW may not want to risk competing with X-Wing, but it's more just I prefer that size when it comes to dog-fighting games. The size of the flyers in 40k makes it too clunky to work properly, I think.

Wait, hold on, you might not want to do that.

I can never remember. Was the quickstart rules actually updated with the Errata or is it still wrong.


Alas, we'll probably be waiting a while for that Space Combat supplement because we STILL don't have Argonauts.

How often in Evangelion do the kids get into the robots, fuck up a roll, and suffer massive body dysphoria and clumsiness until they get back out of the robot? That's what EP does with the morph/ego divide at worst, or else it literally never comes up. "Synch" isn't a thing in EP, but you're acting like that's what you're here for.

Go play a mecha RPG and fuck off.
>It doesn't make sense to me that the party's martian police investigator can come to the same understanding with the resident AI expert of how the big bad was able to create emergent aggressive AI personalities in a station's server which would then hijack the cortical stacks during backup.

That would likely be a Program roll, which your investigator likely doesn't have but your AI expert should.
Well, I had one person telling me that was how they worked, and another person telling me that's how it'd work in real life. I treat the first in good faith, and there's nothing wrong with setting the second straight.

What was wrong with it? Is it anything major?

That's not exactly what I mean. I mean the fact that you don't really have physical stats, you have "how well you can control your body" stats.


>Running out of non-lewd plugsuits

There's zero difference between naming a stat Somatics and naming it Body. That has fuck-all to do with the mechanics of EP.

Board Game General!

>What have you been playing?
>What have you stopped playing?
>What have you recently bought?
>What are you looking forward to buying?

I'll go first:
Most recently been playing Harbour, a really nice small shipping game, works with two players but haven't tired it with more. Two player can be kind of mean with fucking up the market specifically for your opponent but it's still pretty fun. Also Five Tribes + expansion has been really fun.

>Stopped playing
Recently have slowed down on Ascension. I have every expansion except the most recent Dreamscape one and I think I might be done. It was the game that got me and my friends into board gaming from Magic but it doesn't have the same level of excitement that it once held. Giving it a break to see how I feel about it after a while.

and you're absolutely crazy if you think they're remotely comparable. everyone knows the rich and powerful are more important than us plebs and they can get away with damn near anything. people will get upset when they hear about savile, cosby, or a rich saudi getting away with rape, but it doesn't come as a major shock to them.

it's telling that you went straight to the rich people though. it's obviously tough to find a low class white grooming gang that basically gets government sanctions to rape thousands of girls.

But doesn't the Spirit get the ability "~'s power and toughness are each equal to the number of cards in all graveyards."?

706.9d When applying a copy effect that doesn’t copy a certain characteristic, retains an original
value for a certain characteristic, or modifies the final value of a certain characteristic, any
characteristic-defining ability (see rule 604.3) of the object being copied that defines that
characteristic is not copied. If that characteristic is color, any color indicator (see rule 204) of
that object is also not copied.
are shapeshifters all creature types always, or just on battlefield?
Shapeshifters don't have any rules associated with them.

If you mean things with Changeling, that's a Characteristic-Defining Ability. It works in all zones. So a Woodland Changeling is all creature types on the board, in your hand, in your library, in your graveyard, etc.

Oh wow. I've been out of minnie games for a while and hadn't heard of this. I'm impressed GeeDubs, this was a good idea.
You do know that kirby, the guy who was responsible for a lot of that, is gone now right?
And that the new CEO has been making alot of good descions that have undone alot of the bad stuff GW has done, right?

Now if only he would lift the ban on 3rd party sites selling warhammer stuff online. But lord knows if that will happen
If you prefer the modelling and painting aspect of the game, like myself, x wing doesn't really do it for you
He did say that they 'wanted to work more with vendors' and has made quite a few moves to helping other people sell their product.

I can't say, but I wouldn't be surprised if he wants to have 3rd party sites selling their stuff, but their is inertia he's fighting against and can't move too fast. Like how the new Pope hasn't okayed female priests yet, but I've got money on it happening if he doesn't die in the next 5 years.
Except pre-painted miniatures weren't why Rackham went under. Sure, no one wanted to play Confrontation 3rd Ed, but that wasn't the killer. Rackham's demise was 1/3 corporate mismanagement, 1/3 Chinese producers fucking up quality and quotas every month or two, and 1/3 Paolo Parente killing everything he touches.

Seriously. The man may be a good artist, but he may as well be Death's Apprentice with his track history in dealing with other people.

In czech, thre's a bigger difference in the pronounciation of those words, then.

Word for a small book (knížka) is similar, and the meaning is the same in both languages, but it looks like the "default" term is different in czech and polish: kniha is the general word for book, and knížka is derived from it, if what you say is true, it's the opposite in polish.
Oh yeah, and Enchanter/Enchantress/Enchantment is just Elvish for Sorcerer/Sorceress/Sorcery

In general if a magic user calls themselves a Wizard they mean they take magic very seriously and wouldn't use it to blaspheme the gods or threaten the king's authority, If they call themselves a Sorcerer however they don't give a fuck about gods or kings and are probably plotting to overthrow both.
Most people don't call themselves Mages, it's typically the fighter that calls them that.
If somebody calls themselves a Magi, they are either a very powerful thousand year old sorcerer aristocrat who should be feared and respected, or a pretentious dickwad who's rambling can be safely disregarded.

For all your questions on Dark Heresy (1st and 2nd Editions), Rogue Trader, Deathwatch, Black Crusade, and Only War.
Not the wargame. Not Chapter Master. Or Space Hulk.

Book Repositories (If you're planning to download any Rogue Trader materials, read the .txt file in the RT directory)

There is a new Homebrew Megafolder option in above MEGA directory containing several things formerly listed individually on this post.

40K RPG tools, a site that contains stats or references for almost all weapons, armor and NPCs/adversaries. Not updated past DH2 core.

40k RPG Combined Armory (v6.45.160417), containing every piece of gear in all five lines. Now containing some of the DH2 content up to the first supplement.

Fear and Loathing (Ver 1.5.2) and The Fringe is Yours (Ver 1.6.0), /tg/ made Rogue Trader homebrew supplements for playable xenos, Knights, Horus Heresy gear, and other things. Now found in the Homebrew Megafolder.

Now see, THAT comparison, I'm okay with. It makes more sense to me for the Heavy stubbers to be m1919s or m60s or other things like that. But then you have people going on about lasguns being equal to 50bmg and other stuff that seems so silly. I'm really trying too hard to make it all make sense with my perceptions of reality. I need to remember that 40k doesn't make sense.
I've always seen them as a single system (named after the main colony). Fluff from the first Tau codex seemed to imply so. Like Vior'la "orbiting a twin sun".
A sept is an established colony, though. A planet with big cities (for the Tau), administrative centers and production facilities.
Smaller colonies or systems without much population aren't called a Sept.

I don't know much about Tau interplanetary organisation. You could have a vast area of space being affected to each Sept, or some governmental agency in charge of space exploration and only giving colonies Independence when they're completely self-sufficient, creating a Sept.

Tl; dr: One Sept = One civilized planet. The rest is left to your appreciation.

Well, aren't you an entitled one?
What's the best system to use for a game based around Adeptus Arbites being notDredds?
DH2e with a splash of Book of Judgment.
A question for Shas and the rest of you lot that have broke down the system a little better: how do you determine the worth of reinforcement characters? I have a mind to make a few, and I want to balance out their numbers with their influence cost.
Honestly? Wing it and tweak it till it feels right. The existing ones feel dramatically overcosted for me and not worth paying, so I tweak them down. Of course, I'm probably more conservative with Influence upgrades than the book assumes, and I have a small group, which distorts things.
