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.

1. BE EXCELLENT TO EACH OTHER.

Well shit, that's an even better comparison, although for some reason the Tau comparison jumped out at me first. Although I think the comparison in terms of their units still stands somewhat.
I've spent far too long stewing over all of this that its stopped making sense to myself. I just so desperately wish GW would decide to figure out what the fuck they want from KO and actually go with it.

You say that like we can ever have too much Yuri.

Anyway, you make some alright points (aside from citing liberal conspiracies) but to offer a rebuttal- Daud is a gay man. It's not made explicit in his case, and to be fair he's not really a person who would get tied down in a relationship, so we don't get mention of a love interest like we did with Billie and Emily, but he makes a couple remarks in his story about him never really being into women, and the creators have made it explicit outside the games.

As for Emily being a Lesbian, royals had affairs they shouldn't have all the time. Look at the Duke, who orgies it up publicly each sunday. The rules of marriage are different for royals than it is for the peasantry, and even the nobles. It's a matter of political arrangements, loveless marriages are the norm. The rules are just keep the affair under wraps, at least enough that you can reasonably deny it, make sure no-one knows you have a bastard to keep rival claimants from being a thing, and make sure there's an heir so that there isn't a succession crisis.

So as long as Emily keeps her relationship with Wyman from going public, and finds a means to birth a legitimate heir (marry some noble, do the nasty enough to get a baby in, and then never talk to each-other afterwards) and she'd be doing a better job in the Court than King Louis.

The lore is bad rn, and hasn't gone anywhere yet. You can see by the "Isn't it suspicious that they speak highly of Cawl tho??" posts in every 2nd thread that they've clearly spark enough interest in where the plot actually goes. However, this is GW we're talking about, and the reality of the plot is that it barely moves at all if ever, see: The Fallen

>>60988720
Of course, why wouldn't you be able to? There's no errata to tell you that the info in the booklet is wrong or text to tell you it isn't functional for matched play.

Just be careful, because the basic Marines ones are locked to Ultramarines if you use those sheets, and the DG ones may have a similar restriction.

Keep in mind you don't have any loadout options as per indexes or codices either. You also technically don't have a listed points value, nor errata to direct you to the codex, so you might be rules lawyered by retards

Nobody says men can't love in traditional fantasy and myth (indeed, men typically must ALSO match a romantic ideal), just that men can't ONLY love in traditional fantasy and myth. Men can't be defined solely by their love of a woman the same way a woman can be defined solely by her love of a man. Men must prove it through masculine performance - war, political power, adventure, shit like that.

And there are fascinating but entirely outdated and unequal social-cultural reasons for this dichotomy.

Yeah, just like how Marvel was changed in a way that was "no big deal"
Until it was.

Now Iron Man is a black girl, Thor has been replaced (and had his actual name taken by) a woman... I can go on.
SJW ideology starts small and preys on the good intentions of people who like diversity of thought and being genuinely inclusive to force their creepy cult of enforced equality. Cultural marxism is a cancer that needs to be rejected flatly, bluntly, and in no uncertain terms.

>Novelizations of RPGs?
Right. I wanted to address this earlier. In Japan, novelizations of tabletop RPG sessions are... maybe not fairly common, but at least as common as those Forgotten Realms novels. They're called replays, and a few people make a pretty good haul off of writing them. They serve as a good introduction for newer players as to the general flow of play and feel of the game, and plenty of people read them without being into tabletop RPGs at all. They're usually at least as well-written as a typical YA fantasy novel or Japanese light novel, so they at least make a good time-killer. Storytimes on /tg/ can be considered a kind of live replay.

Alright /tg/ I need some help from some more seasoned DMs.

I'm working on a 3.5 DnD game for my party that I hope to launch soon, first game I've DMed in a while and I'm pretty excited for it. But there's two key elements that I can't figure out how to do well that are important to how I want to run this game.

I want to have my players start as indentured laborers toiling at some awful royal armory or fortress whom get wrapped up in a renegade clerics zealous uprising and revolt, take over the armory or fortress, get wrapped up in a bloody siege as the kingdom comes down in reprisal and than go on their way with the game as wanted renegades.

I have 2 problems.

The first problem is I'm not terribly sure what to do to convince them to join this uprising at the start in a way that seem like it's something they'd want to do and not me the DM just out and out pushing them in that direction. How do I tactfully stir them to rebellion? Do I need to come up with some rallying speeches? Do I need to make them do some tedious skill based labor nonsense long enough that they'd be more than happy at any opportunity to go off and kill things?

The second problem is I have no decent idea how to run a large scale battle that feels enthralling and isn't mechanically clunky, time consuming or mostly just me fucking hand waving bullshit and making it up as I go.

I know my players pretty well and they're awful. They're mostly just interested in stabbing things and don't typically work well together as a party and frequently miss out on things like intrigue and politics because it's not killing or looting or screwing each other over. I've already listened to a battery of whining at the notion of starting as prisoners with out gear or loot at a low level so I'm already worried that if I don't pull these two elements off well the game will grind to a premature halt. Halp /tg/ what do I do?
>>
>I know my players pretty well and they're awful.
Why are you running the game for them if you don't like them?
>>
>>60985458
I don't have any other players and I've been playing various games and table top with these guys for about a decade. D&D has been a relatively new addition.

Unfortunately no way to do this without railroading if your players are dicks. Just explain the premise beforehand with the knowledge that things will be flexible after session 1, I've done that before with new players and they sometimes appreciate the rigidness of a "tutorial session" so to speak
>The second problem is I have no decent idea how to run a large scale battle that feels enthralling and isn't mechanically clunky, time consuming or mostly just me fucking hand waving bullshit and making it up as I go.
Yeah 3.5 D&D is ass for mass combat. If their side's victory is assured just have them fight some clusters of dudes flavored as the war raging around them ending with an enemy officer or something.
>I know my players pretty well and they're awful.

>I have 2 problems.

You have more than two problems.

You're a lousy DM for starters. Your entire post is about what YOU want to do instead of what your group wants to do. You're also fixated on an idea which you not only haven't the ability to run but which you can't interest your players in. You're setting yourself up to fail.

You call your players awful. While they may be just that, they're still the other half of the TTRPG collaboration. You can only ignore their opinions and play styles at your peril.

Drop this idea until A) you have a group which will like it and B) your abilities improve to the point where you can actually run it. In the meantime, give the players what they want - backstabbing murderhobo adventures - while slowly adding different kinds of scenes. You may be able to wean them off their current play style preferences.
