How important is it in your stories / current playthrough / character backgrounds?
What are some interesting ways your setting handles money, distribution of wealth, and scarcity?
Is economics frequently discussed in your setting? Do you consider it as a significant factor in world building?
Have you played campaigns that revolved around economics? (e.g. some sort of Trading Places futures play, figuring out the scam of some rival trading guild)

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?
>>
>>63074357
>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.
>>
>>63075236

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.

I'm very slowly building both the economics of my settings as well as my knowledge of economics. I had my GF help me out to figure out currency backing and a few other aspects (Dropped outta school really fuckin' early so I'm self-teaching myself over time). She's been a massive help, especially since one of my characters (Ajax) is a priest of what is essentially the God of Commerce and Labor.

The two guys carry it just like in 40K?

So i got some of my friends into roll20 a while back, with a SWN campaign. Me and another britfag, an expat welshman in canada, and two 'muricans.

One of these 'muricans has some kind of d&d 3.5 obsession. This guy has a hard copy, pdf, or printout copy of every single splatbook. Pretty sure i don't have to explain to /tg/ how much paper that is.

Eventually i gave up resisting the guy, and we played 3.5. He pulled in a couple of lasses he knew, and we all rolled up our characters, level 5.

Now, i didn't know the system really. All i could tell was its way more complicated than 5th, and, i like my streamlined systems. So i put off making my guy like a bitch, and i ended up being last.

By then we had a dude on a horse 'inspired' by one of Alexander the Greats companion cavalry, Dwarf fighter number 964, a goliath with a big ass shield and a charming streak, a Tiefling Bard, and a literal catgirl.

Oh, and we had a corgi. We always end up with a corgi. We like corgis. His name is trigger.

So i tried to think what the team was missing. We have damage, we have tank, we have utility, and we got burst. The cat was some kind of spellcaster, cant remember what type. And i couldn't think of a personality spot to fill.

So, i made Quaxl. I don't rightly know how why, i'd never played anything close to him. I usually like to be a support character, filling some niche that lets me shine a few times a session. Y'know, your pilots, techies, healers and tanks.

Cronological order then.

Since the lizard payed literally no attention whatsoever, spends the group huddle time feeding bits of dried horsemeat to the corgi. Gets told to bodyguard the bard.

Everyone else wanders off to do investigations. Bard wants to go join in with a music competition.

Youtheboss.lyre

Dog follows because i gave it food. I decide it is my new best friend.

Most of the fair's attendees are human, with a few dwarves, and the odd elf. Not a group who're used to 8 foot tall crocodile people escorting tieflings.

We get some odd looks from people, and get stopped by a guard at one point, but the bard convinces him not being eaten is the better part of valour.

We manage to make our way to the venue

Just proxy it with a square box of some sort really.

They did have a Land Raider model but it they were only produced such limited numbers (during Rogue Trader era) making them nigh impossible to get a hold of.
>>
>>63077197
Land Raider was widely available during Rogue Trader's time, pretty much every army could use it. But the plastic kit wasn't updated for 2nd edition. The Predator kit was changed heavily to metals and plastic, the Rhino kit stayed pretty much the same with the addition of a vehicle accessories sprue iirc. But the Land Raider just didn't get revisited. I suspect cost was a big factor. GW then was not the GW of even a few years later and every single plastic kit was a big investment for them, so they focused on producing more smaller vehicles and re-works of existing hulls (since there wasn't really any land raider variants other than the original 2 lascannon one) where much cheaper to produce metal components could alter the design.

Got revisited in EPIC to start with though, seems like pretty much every vehicle got prototyped in 6mm first back then.

I thought the argument was that you had to replace your CCW for one, rather than getting them for free merely by having access to a CCW. So your bolter tacticals didn't have to exchange their bolters for CCWs to get them for free, merely by having access to CCWs meant they could take chainaxes and keep bolters and pistols.

I don't remember anymore, shitposting about it was more fun.

It was on Discord with a bunch of other /tg/ers I met online, they invited me and I was at a situation I couldn't always be there.

All text based, Star Wars Edge of the Empire. The first sessions were great but we had some hiccups, first was this one guy who left after the 1st session, was replaced by a person with a perchance for dick girls. Around the 3rd and 4th Session another person showed interested, bringing out their gender-bent Palpatine character who was super overpowered and wasn't melding well.

Group disbanded because the GM then decided to move onto a new group. I became best friends with the other /tg/er but I do wonder what happened to the rest.

Knowing them, they'll probably read this and laugh, but I kinda missed it.

I had that happen to me twice, and my husband had it happen to him once. Thankfully we both realized those groups weren't good groups, and had other options. We actually met at the table we both wound up at because of those other bad DMs, which I am sure that if they knew it they would take credit for it.

>>63079496
While no two groups are the same, the most-fun I have had at the table on either side of the DM screen was had during campaigns with a "session zero" starting point. It isn't always that the party starts off knowing one-another, but I always like it better when they do for some reason, and it makes for a good group bonding experience to make your characters together as well. I'm more into the roleplay end of things so I prefer it for story reasons but I know plenty of people who also like the idea of it for making sure the group roles are all spread out nicely.

After much thought, Fyreslayers.

They cost elite army $ while costing horde army points, which makes them expensive while also magnifying on how samey they all look. Their behemoths are cool looking, but terrible in game, leading players in a bad choice between good and cool. Mechanically, they are on 32mm bases with wholly within for every command ability, making their gameplay tedious as fuck for both the player and their opponent. Finally their rules and book just completely fail to deliver on the theme of immortal mercenary berzerkers. They're durable of course, but with a slow, durdley style of annoying shuffling. They could have done something really interesting with the mercenary theme (they've worked with chaos and destruction in the lore).

tldr: Great potential, failed hard, boring, in need of redesign and new book.

Army Painter is unironically garbage, even after adding agitators to the bottles and shaking them to get them properly mixed up. They have a few decent colors in their range that can coat well, but most of them take way too many coats to achieve the desired effect and often look splotchy.

I'd suggest using Vallejo or Reaper if you're looking for paint brands that aren't GW. Or Coat d'arms if you want to LARP like it's 1999 again.

How do you start out playing D&D? I have played a couple of games of D&D (2) with some "friends" only one of them is I would consider a friend, but it wasn't exactly D&D it was a very washed down version of it that in my honest opinion disallowed you from having interesting characters it was like a game of who was stronger, I am also in High school to give some insight on my question. All I want to ask is what would be the best way to find a good group. Also, I live in a small town in Texas with a very small traditional games community only one little game-store that is about to be shut down sadly not enough people planning on moving to a bigger city.

There's no magic way to find a good group. Invite people you like to try it out, search for people online, etc. But it's going to be work regardless of the method; people you enjoy hanging out with and who share your tastes in D&D are rare and hard to find.
