No one has mentioned phylacteries? You know, the thing liches use?

That's a Jewish thing. They actually use them. It's a box with some verse from their bible. They strap it to their head and pray.

Idea to buff sorcerer

>Pick a class: bard, cleric, druid, paladin, ranger, warlock, wizard
>For every metamagic you know, you may pick two spells from that spells list
>Charisma is your spell-casting modifier for it
>You may exchange these spells on level-up as you normally would with Sorcerer spells, but it must be from your chosen list
i was asking if there was a class that has buffs to improvise weapons
I'd say make it a fighter subclass or a pugilist homebrew subclass. Its a very limited gimmick.
honestly I don't think you need anything fancy for sorcerer. use spell points instead of spell slots, merge sorcery points with spell points, buff their spells known to the wizard's baseline (or give like 10 free origin spells, two every other level).
Just play monk and flavor your attacks to be a no trable jackie chan type, IE instead of "I make two unarmed attacks" say "I grab a bottle, smash him in the head, then go to stab him with the jagged remains of it". No need to fuck with mechanics.

Version 0.5 of my first homebrew, trying to recreate a class similar to Pathfinder's Cavalier. Can I get some feedback for it?

What Once Was Edition

>What is Genesys?
Released in November 2017, Genesys is a pen-and-paper generic RPG system and toolkit by Fantasy Flight Games, using a refined version of the system presented by their Star Wars RPGs (Edge of the Empire, Age of Rebellion, Force and Destiny). Its central mechanic is the Narrative Dice System, using pools made of specialized dice to create narrative results.

Enc 8? I'd lower that to a reasonable number (less than 4) and just tack on cumbersome or unwieldy.

Unless your goal is that the players can literally only carry their gun around. Tau are only S3 in the tabletop, which probably translates to BR 2 in Genesys.
Yeah, encumberance 8 is absurd and is typically reserved for missile launchers and the light (even then, not to that degree).
That's fair enough, I wasn't too sure about the Encumbrance rules so I erred on the heavier side.

True, but neither is 3.5 or 5e really
Well, yeah, but 3.X and 5e are easier to find games of than literally anything else. I mean, if I could get a decent GURPS group or get my current group to switch to GURPS, I would, but as-is, I'll stick to 5e because it's what they all know and what they want to play.

How the hell would you know you can write something that you've never run?

Anyway, the solution to your shit is simple, just partner up with someone else.
I've been hiding from uncomfortable truths for so long I've forgotten how much is lies and how much is escapism. It's too late for me.
Playing a character whose worldview was completely shattered by finding out the world was Aztec style (in the sense that blood sacrifice was required for the gods to live and keep the world running), I finally understood the BBEG 'destroy the world' motivation. Beforehand, it simply puzzled me. 'Isn't that where you keep your shit? How are you going to get laid?' were my thoughts before. Made me understand the desire to simply be done with What Is so that there might be Something Different.

I went from player to BBEG to destroying the world in approx 3 sessions.
Fucking A.

That was a fun Google search.

Most CYOAs don't hold your hand and tell you it's an isekai, anon. It's a CYOA. You put yourself in your character's shoes.
You misunderstand. I basically just said that it's not a CYOA if it isn't a self insert.
Most do. Actually ALL CYOAs do but in general most of the images that get posted here (or anywhere else CYOAs can be found) are actual CYOAs. The ones that try to be a PHB instead but forget to include the actual game are the minority, a very small minority at that.

Sure, Revised had all 13 clans, and V20 had everything. But that goes back to my earlier argument: even Revised, as the name implies, described itself as a revised version of VtM. V20 was an anniversary edition, a last hat thrown into the ring when Requiem did not sell as well as they expected, an updated version of Revised. V5 is made by a less competent studio whose trying to be the big new kid on the block, and changing up the rules and the lore. They can't just copy-paste and be done with it. It'd be better for everyone if they did, but they don't. Did you really think they'd come out with everything up front, with how V5 read? I'm not sure even they know what they're doing.

How do you guys feel about re-using characters?
My last several characters I've played have been dudes in stories I'm writing or guys I made in some vidya before that never got a proper chance to be roleplayed, and people seem to have loved 'em.
If it's like reusing a character whose story has already been told, I think it's alright if they don't take the spotlight. Reusing material which hasn't reached its full potential is fine too.

In Shadow Jago's case, he's different enough to warrant his inclusion and his colour palette is baller as fuck.
I do it all the time. But I only re-use PARTS of them. The modism of this, the fears of that...

What would such a society be like? One where all menial labor is done by mindless flesh automatons, everyone is grown in vats, and only elite administrators have any true self-awareness? Would there, for example, be military parades, since there was no need to motivate the peasantry? Would every 'aristocrat' stay by themselves or would a close union grow between them? What else might matter? Assume roughly human psychology.
>Assume roughly human psychology.
So the leaders are corruptable. Let me make everything simple then: you have a lower class of literally mindless automatons and an objectively better upper class that rules everything. What is preventing that ruling class from just living the good life as their mindless servants run everything, maintaining only minimal vigilance against foreign invasions (which will eventually grow ever more lax as the chances of another military invasion become (in their perception) less likely)? You get a large mass of mindless slaves and a small leisure class. If there are still 'ordinary' humans left, they'll probably be kept satisfied just enough to not outright revolt (or deliberately kept ignorant and starving like in North Korea and comparable dictatorial regimes).
>What is preventing that ruling class from just living the good life as their mindless servants run everything
>You get a large mass of mindless slaves and a small leisure class.
More or less yeah, that's what I was thinking of as the basic structure of their society.

The big problems are that the workers, while adaptable, need direction from the elites to function at peak efficiency (prior to the evolution of the ruling caste they just threw bodies at a problem and learned by doing instead of thinking), so they have the role of directing the masses during projects and and campaigns and such. Another thing is that this species is essentially designed for war, so I feel like even the ruling caste would place value on martial skill (even purely for pride's sake) and maintaining physical fitness. Like Sparta without the risk of revolt. Really my main interest is figuring out how the culture of the sapient caste would develop. How would a society that has all that power but has such low numbers of intelligent citizens evolve? I personally feel like the ruling caste would grow very close-knit, for example, with everyone knowing everyone else at least in passing, especially because of the whole looming threat of the human nations surrounding them.
