After playing 5e for some time I've really gotten nostalgic for the powers of 4e. In 5e if you aren't a magic-user you don't have much mechanical utility, especially in battle, and after so many encounters of just running up and hitting stuff it's really started to get to me. I will admit lack of options has really made me more creative with what I do in battle, but there's only so much I can think of off the cuff.
Does anyone else miss the combat "powers" enough to wish for their return?

>>
>>53414381
Another point where 5e would be better without multiclassing is actually related to the action economy; 2 levels for fighter Action Surge is worth it for basically everyone but absolute purists.

There are the abilities you simply can not make available early/cheap in a system where you are free to mix and match stuff (pointbuys, level by level multiclass) but you are allowed to do them in strict class based systems.

Point in case, stacking all the striker features, or combining them with fighter marks in 4e (which is how essentials hybrids become the most optimized damage dealers), which are all first level abilities.
>>
>>53413838
What makes this most depressing is that basically everyone liked Expertise Dice Fighter. Everyone.

I can't stress this enough. The playtest forum was basically a mixed group of 3.PF, 4e, and the occasional TSR player, and basically everyone was in agreement that Expertise Dice was good. It's bonkers that they'd get rid of it, though mostly because Mearls was still assblasted that the community basically forced him to give Fighters options at gunpoint.

Hi, I'm afraid my reference isn't very good, but I'll describe to the best of my ability.
M y character is a bugbear whose parents were killed by a pair of elven rangers when he was a child, and subsequently raised by them. During the course of his upbringing he became a knight of the fey, protecting nature with his strength. He is able to summon armor and weapons of similar theme to the ones pictured, made from all sorts of bark, leaves and thorns.
He usually has a calm smile, but for the most part he is a standard hairy bugbear. He tries to keep his hair in check but it usually outsmarts him. He's a big guy., That's all I guess.

My expectations.

Choppas add +1 str, -1 ap. Diffirentiate them from shootas.
Shootas can run and shoot at minus 1 to hit.
Meganobz go up to 4 wounds, since there is no invun.
Mobs numbering 12+ ignore battleshock.
Waaaagh! Grants charge rerolls and run/charge for a turn, everyone ignores battleshock.
Warbosses instill fear, or commisar blam some nearby squads who fail battleshock.
kustom force fields to go back to cover saves
eavy armor still being too expensive to justify over just getting more boyz.
And basically everything getting more awesomer.
Also we better have decent looted vehicle rules this time.

They don't actually need to be big and strong, finding the most suitable mate is a completely ordinary motivation that you'll find in basically every sexually reproducing species. That said they do need a good reason to roam so far from home and being unable to breed with each other is a more all-encompassing choice than taboo since the latter raises the question of how they handle raging hormones, episodes of lowered inhibitions, and simple desperation.

Potential types of threads on /tg/:

>Content creation threads
>Troll threads
>Quest threads

If quest threads are allowed to return to /tg/, and you claim that "we'd have the same number of troll threads and also quests", then logically it follows that the people making content creation threads would start making quest threads, since the number of troll threads wouldn't increase and the total number of non-sticky threads couldn't rise above 150.

Therefore, the questfags that you hate so much are actually the people who make all the things we enjoy on /tg/ besides troll threads.

Does intelligence measure your level of education, your quick wit, your logic and deduction skills, or your imagination?

Is wisdom all about your senses and perception, your common sense, your willpower, or your sanity?

Does charisma rate your appearance, your likeability, your force of personality, or your confidence?

Last time on Song of Swords:
Damaged Russian goods
Old Zell sensei and his student

James posts more lore (who even reads that?)

Song of Swords is a a tabletop RPG centered around realistic medieval fightan' with a ludicrous variety of weapons and fighting styles, centered around a dice pool system. It's currently in beta, and can be used for both fantasy and historical games. The Kickstarter was nearly 300% funded, and we're on the fast track to kicking ass baby.

Call of the Void: Ballad of the Laser Whales is a pulpy sci-fi tabletop RPG about fighting space-nazis and hunting giant whales with harpoons made out of the moon. Its combat system is more modern, based in the early 20th century, but can probably handle combat up to the present day.

In Kotor I was a force-sensitive mandalorian and helped reestablish my clan in the Hapes Cluster, overthrowing the fledgling Hapes Consortium and sealing the borders ~960 years ahead of schedule.

3000 years later I return not long after the Mandalorian Civil War and reassume the mantle of Mandalore. Assembling the clans of the Hapes Cluster I launched an assualt on Mandalore Space while occupying the Brental system, holding the students of the Republic Futures Program hostage, and blockading the Perlemian Trade Route and the Hydian Way hyperlanes. Being pacifists the New Mandalorian security forces were quickly overwhelmed and their government dismantled.

The Old Republic was not prepared for conflict, it's defense forces were poorly funded and spread across the galaxy while a failing government scrambled with how to respond. In a round of negotiations I demanded that all of Mandalorian Space would become my sovereign territory in exchange for ceasing the occupation of Brentaal IV, the blockade, and letting the Republic claim they rescued the hostages in a rescue mission. It didn't take too long for them to agree to the terms.

The ramifications of the Brentaal Conflict were further loss of faith in the Old Republic government, a resurgent Mandalorian Empire on the doorstep of 2 of the 5 major hyperlanes, and large increase in military spending by the senate. Palpatine was able to use the fear of Mandalore to push military expenditures and build a defense force to guard the borders of our space. This resulted in higher taxes and costs on member worlds which created more discontent and helping the rise of the Confederacy. I

Much like in the canon Clone War the Mandalorians kept out of the war for the most part, mercenary groups being the exception. It wasn't until late in the second year that we sided with the Republic. Given our history of killing Jedi, Palpatine covertly hires us as Jedi Hunters and assassinate troublesome individuals.

>The Warp shitting himself at Guilliman coming back forever proves the superiority of the Materium over the chaos realms.

Nope, it isn't that the warp shat itself, it's that Guilliman changed fate. The Tyranids never changed fate, they've been coming since the Horus Heresy and the Chaos Gods have known this, and saw that they were of no consequence to their apocalypse plan.

Arithmetic. Orks are material creatures and so are finite, Daemons are more numerous. Thus it would be the clash of two tides, and the daemon tide is bigger.

>ACCEPT MY NITPICKED LORE I AM GETTING ANGRY I SAY THE FUCK WORD

It's not nitpicked. It's basic lore in the setting. You straight out lied and ignored the fact that Tyranid DO NOT cut off the Chaos Gods from real space.

I mean in the thread we have Slaanesh casually pushing the Hivemind aside to devour the souls of the Eldar dying on a maiden world being invaded by the Tyranids. This shows that you are full of shit and that you lost the argument before you began. So your only recourse is " THIS LORE DOESn'T COUNT WAAAH"
