Tell me ideas boss
well what would a paladin do in this situation?

don't sink to their level, no matter what.

spend some time meditating and praying on the correct course of action, or consult your priest.

assume the best of your stalwart friends and companions until you know they've betrayed you for sure. if this turns out to be true, smite the fuck out of them. give them no quarter. eradicate their filth and pray over their graves.

like, duh
First rule of playing. Don't be a faggot paladin. Be Neutral Evil like the cool kids.

my sides are in fucking orbit. tell us more details so we can actually figure out what your problem is.
It's probably not your fault people abandoned you. Just keep at it, keep looking for a group, keep experimenting. Keep trying to redefine who you are as a roleplayer and improve yourself. That's all anyone can do.

I had an idea for a game, /tg/ - one where the players are in a near future not!Communist or not!Fascist country that has recently embraced democracy, which much of the population supports since things were pretty shitty. The twist? The players are all secretly supporters of the old regime, and are convinced that everyone else must be brainwashed or enemy agents and that they have to fight to save their country.

Do you think this is an interesting setup? What sort of system would be good for it, or what other things could I do to flesh it out?
It sounds interesting but I can see serious problems with actually trying to run it. Like "what are the character actually going to be able to do to try to achieve their goals?" They'd basically have to become some sort of terrorist group like the IRA or ISIS if they were going to have any sort of large scale impact at all and not just end up getting arrested early on with out any "accomplishments".
Well, I think it's important to expect that at some point the players will actually fight, but there's a lot of other things they could do before or after. They could start off as a bunch of 'concerned citizens' that start printing pamplets or their own newspaper that's a thinly veiled support of the old regime, try and gather some supporters. There could be a phase where they're trying to gather documents and books that are now banned, or equipment that's being phased out by the new government. Maybe they'd even do some sabotage to get people missing the security under the old regime, or spying, or trying to get some allies among the remnants of the old regime or other countries less friendly to the new one.

I guess it is hard to leave it open to an eventual success without making it all too easy, but I think it's more for exploring the mindset of a person fighting for old ideals, and not having it feel justified to the players by it being something as black and white as 'we're good and they're bad.'
>Do you think this is an interesting setup?

Interesting, but next to impossible to run as >>63073214 wisely suggests. The game would devolve into nothing more than modern day murder hoboes with all the problems that entails.

>>What sort of system would be good for it...

Systems? Anything with modern firearms and interpersonal stuff. I'll say GURPS before someone else does, but Gumshoe, Delta Green, and others would work too.

>> or what other things could I do to flesh it out?

As already noted, I believe your first approach with the players being "Old Regime Supporters fighting to turn back the clock" is more or less impossible to run seriously. Instead I'd take a page from German reunification and make the players informers and/or agents with the now disbanded secret police. A lot of East Germans who had secretly worked for/with the Stasi found themselves trying to keep their old Stasi links secret. Put your players in the same situation and have them deal with blackmailers, people denouncing them, the new government wanting them to act as agents in return for their old "crimes" being pardoned, etc.
I guess that would be more fun and allow players to get right to the focus of the game, instead of having to build things up. It'd also help explain their resistance to the new regime.

Main reason I avoided that idea initially is that I wanted to keep it vague what the country was like, so that the players wouldn't feel like they were the bad guys as much as loyalists, and thought former secret police members would get more notice than ordinary citizens. A level of paranoia and subterfuge would be welcome to help avoid the murderhobo problem.
you should have many sessions where they work in the regime with the intent to gain bonuses /loyality or protection and family support before the gov't change happens so they have a backstory as to why they want the old authority back.

Bullshit. Orcs and goblins are meant to be evil, rapey monsters, not an ethnic group like being Polish or something.
Tolkien also made Catholic mores part if the laws of nature for his knife ears; ie 'elves are unable to conceive of adultery and if threatened with rape, a married elf dies to save its 'purity'. '

Given the normal traits of beauty, long life, magical affinity, and generally amicable relationships with humans, it would make more sense that elves would control humans by marrying their daughters off to human nobles to create a ruling class of half elves. It would be like Norman England.

Reminds to the pendragon stuff, chekc it out for the living expenses. The new Rq Glorantha had it too.
Pendragon 5e? I'm seeing stuff about horse-survival, but it's also giving me good ideas about fashion. I like that as an explanation.

As for glorantha, my skill at maritime-banditry is failing me. Is it worth the 30 USD? What should I be learning from that?
I'm writing lore for my Skaven in AoS, they have both a physical currency though also have a culture of taking slaves and using them as food when they're past being useable.

I was wondering anons how realistic I can make this, as Skaven generally just eat their dead or other races and steal or backstab to attain things. Shelter is likely built by slaves which are likely disposable.

What are plotholes and how can they plugged if they take a base somewhere?
>eating no-longer-useful slaves
[Disclaimer: I don't know lore about that setting] That sounds like a result of either food being relatively scarce/expensive for most skaven, or that their expired slaves are more desirable than their usual foodstuffs (even if it just has higher status associated with it, rather than being particularly nutritious, tasty, or appealing). Even if they're not super-starving, it could also just be a culturally traditional way to dispose of living property such as pets and livestock, which may have roots in lean-times where they were forced by necessity to do so.

>Skaven generally just eat their dead or other races and steal or backstab to attain things
At the end of the day, you need the ability to get things from people who you can't afford to risk open conflict with. That's just a fact of life. For that reason, you need some method of trade. The wiki page says they trade 'warpstone' which is somehow useful, and the skaven there have their own shops, so it's pretty easy to see that some peaceable interaction occurs between them for the purpose of such exchanges.

On warpstone for currency, yep they trade it with other Skaven (or really anyone who owns some and is willing to trade) for things they want.

However, they're also super-evil and selfish, so anything they attain would go to themselves before their slaves, who I assume would be the farmers/labourers. A Skaven would not feed a slave if he needed food himself first.

Shop ware stealing, burglary and mugging are bound to be things. Warpstone could buy protection, though this is an admittance of weakness which other Skaven would soon jump on to get one over on.

What is your favorite character you ever made for a campaign?

One of mine was Hardloin. He was part of a pig race named the Porkish and spoke with a Russian accent. He was the world's greatest bar brawler and an extreme alcoholic. When he was a child he smashed open the liquor cabinet with his face and when his loving father came in and asked why he was bleeding he smashed him in the face with the vodka bottle and called him a pussy before running away.

His romantic interest was an member of imp royalty so he had to fight her family in order to get to marry her. The first fight was a fist fight that he won easily. The second was a swordfight where he refused to use the sword so he just beat the guy with the guard. The third was a pistol duel with the father where he immediately chucked the pistol at his head almost knocking him out. Hardloin then proceeded to taunt the father about how hard he was going to fuck his daughter which bothered him so much that he missed over and over again even at point blank range.
Wow that sounds so bad, holy fuck never post on this site again please

I'm dming Out of Abyss and in the Gravenhollow chapter one of the players (a drow, secretely paladin of lolth) discovered that the destruction of his family was one of the consequences of the spider queen scheme. In his rebellion, he refused, in her face (through a vision), to obey the order of sabotage his party efforts to banish the demon lords. As I see lolth, I think I was kind to just remove his powers and cause psychic damage enough to drop him to 0 hp. The thing is, he is talking with me about the oathbreaker path, but his oath was vengeance, and, in my opinion, he doesnt broke his vows, he just included lolth in them.

> Since he was Lolth champion and received his powers from her, not from the oath, was I correct in strip him from his powers?
> please, give me some ideias of how he could regain his powers as a paladin (I already sugest make a sacrifice to lolth if he wishes to remain his champion. neither of us tought this was a good ideia)

Could always ask if their character is fed up with Lolth scheming BS and lol(th) random evil and want to go good and become a paladin of Eilistraee.
... That... made some sense. I can see this working
If you really want to sell the idea mention Eilistraee is a goddess of beauty that likes dancing naked in the moonlight.
How exactly does a dude become a paladin of a CE goddess that makes a whole lotta fuss out of only having female priestesses? He'd have to be a pretty fucked up nigga.
Or just have some god that hates Lolth notice that there's a pretty capable specimen that just got bitchsmacked by the spider-lady and offer them a deal.

Worked for our group.
