Demo Games Edition

Monsterpocalypse is the game where kaiju monsters that brawl, blast, and body-slam each other in a dense destructible urban environment. Alongside these towering monsters, lesser minions, such as powerful tanks, fighter jets, flying saucers, fearsome dinosaurs, and demonic fiends fight to capture important locations and help power their monster to victory. It existed about 8 years ago as a blindbox collectible game by Privateer Press before they accidentally gave away the rights to Dreamworks for a movie but has full hobby kits now and buy what you want blisters.

Are combiners evena feasabile concept in this new Monpoc?
>>
>>61564967

Not necessarily as combiners. Like Tyrannix could be a thing you could summon by gathering and egg and then hatching it rather than as combiner. A sort of Shoot for Moon/Exodia strategy.
Osteroth could be a monster that only comes out for it's hyper form and is only it's tentacles before that, but I dunno about the rest.
They basically have to work the same as how they used to, which is somewhat counter to how PP seem to want to make the game.
>>
>>61565025

They talked about really simplifying the game from the previous iteration which I think they've done. There's talk about bringing back other hazards like radioactive or hellfront. I remember they mentioned that Combiners aren't coming back but Meat Slave shows we'll have hatching/summoning in some form.
>>
>>61565089
Hmmm, maybe if the Savage Swarm ever comes back they could do something similar to the Meat Slaves.

Basically having a "Grub Unit" that an be swapped out for another unit "in reserve".

Something simple. And free, ideally, so you don't have sunk costs if you end up not enjoying it much. Maze Rats is fun, or you could even go wild and just play some of the past winners of the 200 Word RPG Challenge.

So /kdm/ did you get your Echoes of Death?


>What is Kingdom Death: Monster?

Monster is a board game about surviving in the darkness. You play a bunch of cavemen stuck inside the world of the Kingdom Death, a setting full of freaky (and sometimes psycho-sexual) monsters. The current version is 1.5.
Prologue Narration: https://youtu.be/FNLc8dHv0Ac
This game has 3 phases.

1. You hunt down monsters for resources

2. Fight them

3. Return to your settlement with the goods

What's you're favorite post-apocalyptic rulebook?

It's my favorite genre by far, but 90% of the games seem to be exclusively focused solely on mutants (MCC, Mutant Future, Mutant: Year Zero). And Apocalypse World seems too story-gamey for my tastes.

So what else do you recommend? Exodus? Other Dust?

"No!"
I would probably give him 2 to 4 weapon proficiencies instead of background tools/languages.
>>
>>61565037
"No. Genasi get an abundance of racial bonuses and it is unfair to other players to grant you an additional boon. If you would like this feat, you can work towards it in-game and get it at the appropriate level like everyone else.

Having said that, if you would like, we can trade one of your ability scores as a Genasi with this feat and make some adjustments if you have your heart set on this."

If the player truly justifies it with an in-game reason, then EVERYONE at the table gets the option to do so as well. Only when everyone is OK with it would I give the extra feat.
>>
>>61565037
He doesn't need to take the feat since it also includes a stat boost, but I'd say just let him have proficiencies with the weapons he wants. He's playing a Genasi. Giving him proficiencies with a bunch of good weapons still won't make him better than an elf or a half-elf or whatever.

>I can see lignards, chasseurs, turco.... but no 'marine'

It's called allegory, sperg.

The battle was a complete clusterfuck on both sides. The battle of Sedan was taking place at the same time and Bazeilles was a very nasty sideshow taking place over a railway bridge. While the Blue Division provided most of the forces on the French side, in reality there was a crazy mixture of units engaged including civilians. On the other side the Bavarians fought with little if any cohesion. Bezailles changed hands 5 or 6 times with the Bavarians finally burning it down. When the French were ordered to withdraw back to Sedan, the marines held a few houses to prevent any pursuit. The marines held their positions for far longer than was necessary and seemed possible. That's when the patriotic myth of the "Last Cartridges" sprang up and that's myth is what de Neuville's painting is all about.

The painting shows French troops from MANY different units all fighting the Germans until the last cartridge. It's meant to be an allegory of the national resistance which occurred after the Second Empire's fall and not an accurate painting guide for autistic button counters.

Dragons have existed since mankind's golden age, it just wasn't until,Morrigan they became literally world ending. The first dragons were automated defenses designed for far fling colonies, most often ones still being terraformed. As such they were planet bound and dedicated to ensuring there was an Earth like planet to be settled. Many of these worlds still exist, some with whole regimes of mechanized organisms to maintain the environment and now primitive tribes that had regressed during the fall.
>>
>>61560729
Morrigan first seems like a good idea, and then the Mordred Corporation creates the Dragons through experimentation
>>
>>61562999
I kinda went halfway? Mordred modified old planet bound dragons to make the ones that almost wipe out humanity.
>>
>>61563152
That sounds good and makes a justification for Mordred Corp having tons of them at the outset of the war. The facilities making the Dragons were on planets where no one but the staff of Mordred were, there was no real way for anyone else to find out until it was too late.

Plus, for all their power, the Dragonmechs are nothing more than uarmored farm equiment

I'm trying to build up a collection of /tg/-related/relatable paintings currently but I'm down for sketches and anything of the like too. We get a lot of digital art in the usual character art threads, so here's a chance for something a bit different.

I fucking love the Splatoon lore.

>>61561825
Salmon Run is such a weird addition to the game. Splatoon is about fresh squidkids and their obsession with a bizarre paintball-ish sport. Someone looked at this and thought, “Hey, you know what fits this world? Incredibly shitty part-time jobs!” And somehow it works really well.

When Samus was a bright and cheerful 6-year-old, she asked Ridley if they could be friends. His response was "Aw, you're adorable. Sure I'll- SYKE! Actually I'm going to eat your parents alive and force you to watch!". Then he and Mother Brain tricked her into thinking that her entire life was a lie, and her new adoptive parents were psychopaths raising her as a weapon of conquest. Then he killed them too. Then he kidnapped and tortured Samus's pet dog.

Other M has a clone of Ridley that's still in its larval state. It looks absolutely nothing like Ridley, and is actually kind of cute... but looking at it causes Samus to feel angry and disgusted for reasons she can't explain.

Built-in level scaling for monsters and very customizable, and damage types have rules to them that give secondary effects. It's an inbetween for Mutants & Masterminds and 3e. It is however slow and very crunchy, but it's much more fleshed out mechanically than 3e is but doesn't have the batshit insane flexibility of M&M.

Create a moment where one of your monsters starts dragging off the physically weakest member of the party. Will create a tense moment for your most likely caster and increase the bond groups shares as well. Also, might give you a memorable PC death.

make the enemies themselves interesting. Let them have more than just crossbow shots or sword swings
if you don't get any ideas, just get them some spells or something
