Seconding this. I've seen it referenced several times, but all I have is the original greentext story of it, the artwork, and this flowchart. Some friends of mine have been itching for an RP session and I want to throw them into the deep end.

I have also played KPfS. It was pretty fun and the advice about using your high school's layout for a dungeon on the fly was very handy.
If Pathfinder is L1 than so is 3.5, don't fucking front.
>Tfw your three favorite games are MtG, D&D, and Catan

Indecisive wanker, decide your level and stay there.

What're /tg/'s opinions on Shadow of the Demon Lord? I had it recommended to me by a friend and I'm liking what I've read of the book so far. Has anyone played it?
55 replies and 7 images omitted. Click here to view.
I played it with the devs at a con. It was actually pretty fun, although it takes a quick minute to get a grasp of how the system works. I'd recommend it.
Anybody besides me play the modern day/Mad Max variant called Godless?
I've been meaning too, but haven't had a chance. What does it actually change?
To build upon what was said about classes, because I don't think it was a very good way to explain the system.

Classes, called "Paths", are broken up into tiers, Novice, Expert and Master.

Novice tier Paths are the basic building blocks of your character and are broad archetypes, Warrior, Rogue, Magician, and Priest (With a spellsword like Adept in Forbidden rules)

Expert tiers are more like standard RPG classes, things like Paladin, Sorcerer, Ranger. These give you a more focused skill set and role.

Master Paths are the way your character specialises in something. So if you want to be really good with Air magic you can take Aeromancer or if you want to be a great shot with a bow you can take Sharpshooter.

The best thing about this system is there are almost no restrictions on which Paths you can take. You can go Warrior, Wizard, Sharpshooter, or Rogue, Fighter, Diplomat if you want to do that. And with a total of 183 Paths across all the released content there is a lot you can do

You gain benefits from a Novice Path at levels 1, 2, 5, and 8. Experts at 3, 6, and 9. Masters at 7 and 10. And your Ancestry (Race) gives you something at 4.

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
More importantly your Master path becomes your title. So when you acquire it at level 7 you go from Vigo Tenbranch to Vigo the Destroyer, or Quin Miller to Quin the Healer, Bjorn Wolsbane to Bjorn the Dreadnought, etc.

All of three of these examples were from one of my games.

Here's more wacky spells. I can't possibly envision a time when this second one would be useful.

That's messed up but yeah, it'd have to be.

I love the design and worldbuilding you've done.

I'm a project/construction manager by trade, so I'd feel safest negotiating the maintenance level, top secret area, and main server bank. Heights and biohazards scare me much more than electrocution and structural failure.

Soft Landing and Whip are conveniences more than anything else, the real trick is making this damn facility mine.

I never was good at maps. Leaving signs and sentences on scattered walls is the best I'll provide with Cartography.

Infosec is a great trick, but my real pride is in returning power to the generators with a System Restore. AIR CONDITIONING. COLD WATER. This place is now livable.

Hah. These execs are only human after all. One of these poor bastards left a notepad with his passwords in his desk. I'm officially At the Helm! Time to datamine this bitch for all she's worth.

Three objectives.1. Figure out who the hell is following me, my so called Watcher in the Dark. 2. Find this other survivor, the Last Call. 3. Figure out what the hell's going on here, whatever this Bio Project LGM is.

Pretty good build, and you won't be the only one going for a fast kill strat; plenty in the show are kinda shit if they're sans weapon or caught off-guard.

Two questions though
>What's your name since the team names are all 4-letter acronyms for colors or thing like them? (See RWBY-Ruby, JNPR-Juniper and STRQ-Stark)
>How does a katana fit into a rifle, or vice-versa?
No idea what the name would be, so I didn't really make up a team name either.

And apparently going off of one of the characters, the rifle can fit into the stock of the blade, so would likely be abusing that part maliciously.
*teleports behind u* is the best character concept, and you should be proud.

>Limit your knowledge base to clerical and habitual matters learned by rote.

>Be genuinely apologetic every time you must ask for clarification on something.
You're playing a fucking robot. A fucking retarded robot of a race constructed for war and service. One of the things I dislike is limiting character creation options, but fuck man, please realise how retarded it is to even conceive of such a being as a cleric, and then having shitty stats on top, which don't correspond with the class. The dilemmas you stated? Non-applicable, because your character is FUNCTIONALLY RETARDED.
Warforged are below even Goliath-tier in their redundancy, with the latter being at least living creatures, even if ones made specifically for being "a human warrior/barbarian BUT BIGGER AND STRONGER".
Just fucking stop. In my group you'd be allowed nothing but human characters until you stop basing the personality and characteristics of your PCs on their race WHILE ignoring the basis of what the race is about.
I'd noticed that in her portrait and was going to ask. Does she know how that happened? It might make for a fun plot-hook later if she can't remember and tries to find out.

How different would be a civilization whose species evolved from Ambush Predators instead of persistent pursuit predators (humans)?

So the Emperor was born from thousands of shaman ritually suicide at the same time, but he was still biologically a man, right?
At the time of the Horus Heresy, was he still just a normal human (perpetual) in power armor or had he gotten all the Primarch 'upgrades' along the way (like 2 hearts, 3 lungs, etc)

tl;dr: Was the Emperor still biologically human at the time of the final showdown with Horus or was he physically on the same level?

I don't think this is true. We know he fully intended for Magnus to be locked into the golden throne (which wasn't a terrible fate when it was considered, he would just be helping the webway stabilize or something. The demons are his own fucking fault.) but otherwise I don't think he would flat out end the space marines. Maybe scale back their production but then the 'nids and necrons would have showed up and ended that pipedream.

Astartes wouldn't be needed in the Webway. The whole point of the Great Crusade was to secure all the resources required to emigrate all of mankind into the Webway. The conquest of the Materium was always an interim phase.
I'm sure the thunderwarriors thought the same thing.

Throughout the early crusade, the Astartes always wonder what role will be left for them after they reunited humanity.

Musing they have no function beyond war.
The thunderwarriors were unstable. Astartes are capable of living a peaceful existence, some of them are anyhow.
No, you fucking retard. What it means is that if you are borne with genes that make you 6 and a half feet tall, you will still be a fucking 5 foot manlet if you grow up eating nothing but white bread and drinking nothing but plain water. If you even survive at all without vitamin C.

So obviously in an era where nobody is getting proper nutrition, someone who was born with a super body that can achieve humanity's ideal genetics with or without proper nutrition they will be a fucking giant compared to everyone else.

>relaunching the game as a non-blind format

Towards the end, when PP was basically reissuing the older figures, they sorta did just that, where at least you were getting the army you wanted if not the exact support minis.
Too little, too late. Besides, same army still isn't close enough of a guarantee when you're dropping several bucks for a single box.
It was a legitimately good game. Models were of decent quality, and the game had a ton of in-depth strategy for what LOOKED like a beer and pretzels game. It really was much cleaner than Warmachine even of the Era, and had as deep high end play.
Alas, such a fate. At least I won one of the metal Terra Khans and sold it off for a few hundred bucks.

Have this, maybe you can compress it more than I.

SHARC Agents are the Nagarta tasked with making the Vast safe for their species to travel and live in. These are the individuals who track down and perform daring raids on the numerous criminal groups of the galaxy. The life of a SHARC is a difficult one, as even the lowest level Agent is expected to make contacts and follow leads about missing and exploited Nagarta, heading into dark corners and crevices of worlds where many wouldn't dare go. Local Police groups are usually open to SHARCs, welcoming their enhanced Criminology training and leveraging their improved weapon skills, to help locate other kidnapped individuals. However, SHARC Agents are still expected to prioritize Nagarta above all else, which most local security forces are willing to deal with if it means being able to call them up when they need assistance.

SHARC Agents frequently find themselves in situations where they have to think fast and shoot faster. It's not uncommon for a SHARC to be involved in the explosive destruction of some slaver's hideout with a kidnapped Nagarta hurriedly placed into a waiting van. While their government would like to keep their species' name clean in the eyes of everyone, it is a sad truth that certain opportunities arise with risks, and dealing a blow against anyone hurting a Nagarta is an opportunity that can not be missed. While such actions are discouraged in more civilized planets, extreme action is more and more required in the Vast as Nagarta expand and the wealthy, depraved masses seek to add them to their lots of slaves.
One last piece.

Depending on the threat, SHARC Agents may band together, forming a SHIV group, capable of taking on Slaver hideouts and Gang buildings where Nagarta are believed to be held against their will. While this minor species will not be able to take on the full might of certain slavery groups like the Azlanti, SHIVs can at least rescue people and take down individual members of such groups and their fortified bases. These operations, often referred to as Feeding Frenzies for their tendency to load up with LMGs and numerous heavy weapons, tend to leave a large mark wherever they take place. Again, SHIVs prioritize Nagarta, and with slavery being so widespread throughout the galaxy that many people no longer see the evil in the theft of people, it is a sad fact that they are often unable to rescue everyone they encounter, and could never hope to fit even a fraction of them inside their small, speedy ships.
That's from Gui Guimaraes, a Brazilian artist who works at Volta. I know him. He's great.

Yeah, Jump Pack would have been good in your light armor for when you're done flying. I guess probably the targeting computer, thermal capacitor, and electrostatic field. Maybe the autoloader, but that'll depend on what your GM thinks it actually does. Maybe the exit pod, if you see yourself having to hop in and out.

I have to ask, did anybody ever truly homebrew alchemical charms for their mecha and city levels? Cause there's enough hints around the place lorewise in 2e at least about what they can do that I think it might be worth it to make one?

It's not the Trump scenario or the fact that they got SJW personalities to write it. It's the poor writing and the poor quality of the scenarios, as those two claim, that makes me call it garbage, or at the very least, not worth the money for the purchase.
Like is a bit strong.
The expansion doesn't fix any of the problems the first one had, the scenarios aren't good either, not that the first one had only brilliant scenarios but still on average the base game is better than the expansion in that regard. Also some scenarios are poorly written, confusing, or very bland and uninteresting.
You could easily go trough them and remove the obviously bad ones but that's not something the customer should do.

If there's a massive discount maybe it's worth it but otherwise stick just with the base game. If you really play it so much that you need new haunts then maybe then you should consider the expansion.
I agree. The expansion does nothing for the game unless you've played so much that you're consistently replaying haunts.
Hot garbage, avoid at all costs.

No, the world idea is closer to septerra core's layered, floating continents.

Though, it is entirely possible it will more closely resemble Last Exile by the time the arms race that will be sparked by this sect losing control of guns is in full swing.

Especially as the world is bathed in ambient magical energy, such that a species of floating plant is used as the basis for the ships not needing air-bladders. (Basically, it floats at a rate compared to the magical charge applied to it. Allowing for magitek flight control, which could, combined with more efficient engines be reduced down to a single/two-man fighter.)

But, between 30% of the world's population living in one major city, and the airshipping companies and the local governments coming to an understanding, the world is generally peaceful. Excepting piracy, dragon attacks, odd magical incidents, and the fact that even if your place is perfectly secure, it is possible for an event to happen that brings new dangerous beasts into the world near-by. Call'em Aetherfalls, and they're something of a by-product of the world basically being a cosmic U-bend. Creatures that get lost in the Aetherial tend to wash up here, be that from magical accident, magical intentional, or flat out "surviving" Armageddon. The interesting thing is, not even outsiders escape the pull of this place, actually physically dying if slain on this world as the entirety of their being is brought here. As such, they get to save against being summoned... and would be rather peeved if successfully summoned.
Some people are really slow, and some people keep having IRL stuff come up that puts off the session. It happens, we're all adults about it, we're not here to serve some faggot anon in /pfg/.
I'm not particularly worried about it, every game goes at its own pace

WWW goes a lot faster than most i guess, and thats fine too
Better than no progress for all months. Speaking of in a completely unrelated question, how's YOUR game going? Hmm?

Princess Discussion of the Day #31
Gorgon Princess

A real dangerous princess for obvious reasons. Kind of odd that there is nothing that lets you resist petrification.

Being an architect / collector is kind of neat but in the obvious Gorgon way that makes it deadly. Easy to imagine that she would keep these qualities even if you convinced her to not petrify people.

Cute accents are cute but I am unsure about what the expert convincer part is implying. Stone cold demeanor also seems to conflict with the cute part or the part where she is charismatic enough to be convincing.

Art worship bonus, not exciting but not bad to have. Renounced is probably what everyone goes for though, the hypnotic cock is probably tied for first place as far as overpowered controlling powers go.

All her fetish/dislikes are petrification related and still not any good way to avoid the negatives.

Lastly, her lust bonus, Perseus' Shield, has some interesting qualities. I guess people could say that this is the solution for the petrification problem but it does not make much sense since it would be reflecting the petrification back on Gorgon Princess so it would not make you hard for days anyways in that situation.
