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.

In the rules department, you can look at http://www.4chan.org/rules - all global and board specific rules are in full effect. Apart from that, only two rules are important.

A few reps. Thats all you need to do then your done. You crouch, the weight not needing help when it comes to pushing you down, and take a few more deep breaths in and out. You can do this, you're not a weakling or a runt! You crouch low, the heavy weighy feeling like its going to break you, and then start breathing more calmly. Your body burns from exertion, but you sincerely hope its up for some more. You push yourself up, the strength of your body supporting you as the weight leaves the top of your head and continues up into the air.

You dont stop pushing until once again the weight is above you with your arms straight up. Alright thats one rep of hard as hell weight lifting, onto the next. You do a few more reps, at least 3 or 4, and dont stop until you feel that you might give out. Well that was...fun to say the leasts. You wait for the panel to materialize in front of you before speaking through gritted teeth.

"End training."

The panel disperses, and for a second you think your stuck with the weight before it dissolves into air. You let your arms fall to the side as you breath heavily. That was hard, to say the leasts, and your covered from head to hoof in sweat as it pours down your body. Well that may have been fun but your REALLY tired right now.

Time to get some work done. You touch the dial with your staff, and push it to test four. The pedestal glows, raises up, and then dissapears back into the floor. You patiently wait, twirling your staff around in the air, and soon the ravens are here! Both in their armor, but with swords in one hand and spears with shields attached to them in the other. Looks like they came ready to fight, and so did you. Since they are fast and strong you feel they will be a nice test of your body.

You twirl your staff around one last time and stand with a hand on your hip.

Do they even have the license for the new movies? I think I read somewhere back when armada was announced, that that their license expires in a few years and they have to release as much as possible.
Isn't that the problem/thing with all the imperial ship designs, as they are all derivatives of the Tie fighter/bomber? I mean When the phantom was released he made the interceptor obsolete and his design is basically a smaller tie defender, which is a tie fighter with 3 of these 'wing'-things.

>logically what a crossguard would look like in the Star Wars universe
No, a logical Star Wars crossguard would be a crossguard made of cortosis or phrik or some other saber-resistant metal. Sticking extra saber blades on the sides is just asking for a self-inflicted Skywalker handshake unless those side bits are meant to be exhaust ports.
From what I've heard they have obtained a licence to the new movies.

And yes, most Imperial small ships are a TIE with different bits, but most at least try to change the designs somewhat to make it more distinctive. The Interceptor for example has the same hull as the basic TIE Fighter, but the shape of the wings is completely different, giving it its own distinctive look. The Defender also has an unique hull (it's a more elongate shape with the classic "TIE ball" attached to the front) and wing design.

This thing is literally just the Bomber model with the missile pod and cockpit slightly repositioned, the copypasted. Which is probably how it was made considering it only exists because some videogame needed an upgraded version of the Bomber. Could've at least given it different wings.

its fake.

Magic: the Gathering guys have decided that green needs to have big green flyers now. What creature type would it be?

M:tg also needs white to draw cards too. How does it differ mechanically from the other color's card draw?

Eh, Mostly Insects with flying.
Maybe a Few Green Griffons. A few more Green/Whites.
A legendary G/U Elemental subtitled The Wind in the Leaves.
A flying Squirrle.
Maybe a spider that uses its webs to make Parachutes. Blue or Red mana to fly per round.
Slap wings on snakes. They're already a good chunk of green's evasive funky shit creatures, and it's not like it changes a whole lot.

White draw should always be related to life gain or life totals in some way.

Diving Serpent 2G
Creature- Snake
G: ~ loses flying and gains hexproof until end of turn.

Stingbloat G
Creature- Snake
Flying, Deathtouch
~ can only block creatures with flying.

>That's all that really matters.
It may not occur to you that if that was true you wouldn't need anyone else.
Theres a cerbus operative that uses electric whips. And an npc goes out of their way to call that fucking stupid funny enough
It also apparently uses somekind bullshit stealth warheads that are launched at relatively high velocity (+100 km/s during the Shadow Moses incident).
Indoctrination Theory is idiotic and if you believe it then so are you. It literally boils down to "It was a dream all along" which is quite possibly the worst way to end the grand, epic space opera the devs were going for. It contradicts its own premise that Shepard never reaches the beam by stating that Destroy is the only correct option to end his manipulation by the Reapers because if that were true, then where was the reveal that Shepard wakes up and he's still standing in front of the beam?

Bottom-line, it's retarded and Bioware didn't help matters, even if they did declare it non-canon, by stating that not everything was as it seemed with the ending. Though, one can easily see why they would since why wouldn't they take any opportunity to deflect some of the anger directed at them, rather than admit they fucked up and wrote a terrible ending to the trilogy?
I think you misplaced a zero because that's quite a lot higher than escape velocity.

"What?! But how?!" screamed the admiral as yet another portion of his fleet was destroyed. It had been happening all day. His fleet had taken the coast and the ground troops should have had the coastal towns under control. The admiral furiously called the general, demanding an explanation.

In the distance a man stood atop a hill. He pressed the two switches he had in his hands, causing yet another portion of the fleet to be destroyed. He laughed maniacally.

"Welcome to the bay! The Michael Bay!"
>Rattle rattle

He was instantly snapped awake.

"No please... Not again! Not now... Not them... Anything but them!"

He could deal with ghosts, goblins, ghouls and grouchy old merchants, but not them.

He listened intently to the darkness around his fire. He did not hear it again.

He sighed to himself in relief, before closing his eyes once more.

Roll up a thief in AD &D, have a drink when he gets killed, then roll up another thief...
I was in a DH game where the party psyker's first in-game action was to try and use a psychic power to walk through a wall in the opening scene. They rolled perils and disappeared from realspace.

GM decided it was non-canon/retcon'd it because it happened less than 10 minutes into the first session.
That's because in D&D and AD&D, different classes levelled up at different rates. Fighters needed less XP than Magic Users for example (2000 for first level vs 2500).
don't think i can beat 35 minutes but I played with a group for 3 sessions and my character died each time. Del Fy the oracle coup de graced by an invisible lizard, Red the barbarian dead because underwater combat rules are shit and I don't even remember the 3rd guy because by that time I was pretty much just done.
I have literally never had a PC die in traveller chargen.
I guess it's technically possible, but you have to be REALLY trying to milk the process, be dumb as fuck, or extremely unlucky for it to happen.

ITT: roleplaying/campaigns in a communist society. Curious if there's any settings/rules that cover this; also share your dirty commie stories.

Glory to the revolution!

Once tried playing a 'revolutionary' type character in a steampunk setting (e.g. good with explosives and oratory) but he got killed fairly quickly. Doing a Russian Revolution-style campaign with steampunk elements would be great, tho.
Citizen Anon-Y-MUS-4, are you implying that Alpha Complex is not a utopia, but instead infected with filthy communist mutant traitors?

Please report to your closest brain scrubbing station for a mandatory Lethe-treatment and complimentary Algea-chips.

You are also demoted to INFRARED clearance.

Have a nice daycycle, Anon-MUS-4.
Eclipse Phase runs the fucking gamut, though. Just because one place is Communist doesn't mean the next isn't Capitalistic, doesn't mean the next place isn't a South American military dictatorship.
You can play communists and a campaign around a communist faction in EP. Thus my answer is valid.

I see a lot of threads about people having trouble with their setting and trying to make established fluff work. In my group using established lore was never the norm, we always wanted to play our own settings. Its seems foreign that people would play by what is written in the rulebook at the expense of creativity, enjoyment, expression, and playability.

I just wanted to do a little survey about how people play, just to see what the norm is

Do you base your campaigns off published lore?
Do you run pre-existing settings?
Do you only play rules as written?
Do you create your own campaigns?
Do like playing the way you do?

So far
>Do you base your campaigns off published lore?
Nope, my setting, my way. But I always try to include recognizable elements: you may not get elves, but you'll get Fauns instead, who are different and not overplayed but not too strange either.
>Do you run pre-existing settings?
>Do you only play rules as written?
Nope. Often less rules, which picks up the pace and leaves more room for decent role playing.
>Do you create your own campaigns?
>Do like playing the way you do?
Wouldn't have it any other way.

Can dredge be viable now that the troll is off the banlist or is Return the absolutely needed glue that holds the deck together? The only serious attempt I have seen is that Channel Fireball dude with his Pharaohs and reanimator/Unburial gameplan.

Also there is GP Kyoto(legacy) for those bored or interested going on right now.

All word and pixel /tg/-related lewdness is welcome here, so long as the rules are followed. Writefags, consider pastebin/1d4chan rather than dumping for long stories. Drawfags with uncensored pictures need to host their images offsite and link to them. For those of you visiting from other boards, err on the side of censorbars and spoilers if you're hesitant.

People especially appreciate it when you give them meaningful feedback and criticism, so make sure to do so. It's easy and both writefags and drawfags will love you for it.

In any case, enjoy! Remember to play nice and that all contributions and requests are welcome!

DISCLAIMER: Although requests are encouraged to promote a constant flow of new content, unfortunately not all of them can be fulfilled even at the best of times; don’t take it personally if we don’t get to you right away. Please try to expand your ideas - a bare-bones request doesn't give us much of a good idea as to what you want. Remember- have fun with it!
