Compensation is a knighting by the King of England and 500,000 Nuyen per Runner. Expense account is a blank check, billed to the Lord Protector of London.

Picture is the last known image of the "Mojo," it was reportedly stolen by an obese Scottish terrorist known as "Fat Bastard."

I hope the answer is YES for sometime out there.

The Settlers of Catan
1) This test version of the well known board game the Settlers of Satan consists of preprinted gameboards that are “played” with pens. In addition to the provided material each player needs one pen (red, green, blue, black, etc. ) and two normal d6.

2)Before you is the island of Catan. The island consists of 19 land tiles bordered by the sea. Your mission is to settle the island.

3) On Catan there is a desert and five other land types. Each land type produces different types of resources.
forest= wood
plains= wool
fields= wheat
Hills= brick
Mountains= ore
deserts= nothing

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>
>>63074717
>>63077059

6) How do you generate resources? Easy: each round only certain land tiles produce resources. Roll 2d6 and each land tile with the rolled value produces. For example if you roll a 9 on 2d6 then each tile marked with a 9 produces resources.

7) Only the players with a settlement or a city on the border of a land tile collects resources when the value for said tile is rolled during resource production. As in the example above, if we rolled a 9 for resource generation only the red and blue settlements on the field tile produce one wheat, and the green settlement on the mountain produces one ore.

8) Settlements and cities can border more than one land tile (maximum 3 tiles) and thus produce different resources depending on the roll. Again, in the example above the red settlement A borders forest and field, the blue settlement B borders forest, hill, and field. The blue player has access to three resource types with this settlement, and the red player has access to two with his settlement. However, the red settlement is also bordering a harbor, so the red player is allowed to trade resources at a cheaper rate (3:1 rather than 4:1)

9) Be careful when building settlements to have access to all resource types. In order to continue to build new buildings you need to have certain combinations of resources.

10) Because of the importance of having a diversity of resources you are allowed to trade with the other players. Players are free to make offers to one another.

11) You can only build new settlements on a free crossing. As long as one of your roads connects to the free space, and the next closest settlement (of any player) is at least two spaces away.
>>
>>63074717
>>63077059

12) Think carefully about where you build settlements.The numbers on each tile are written in such a way that they convey the probability that the tile will produce resources. The red numbers are the most probable, while the numbers written in a smaller font produce less often. Naturally, the more frequently a number is rolled, the more frequently the tile will produce resources.

I'll consider doing the other images later.

thats all very well, but how does this work with the other continents? Is mystra just know by another name kara tur? What about the persian land full of djinns ( the name escapes me yet again). How does the setting recognize magic on different cultures and its relationship to the weave?
>>
>>63078904
>Kara-Tur and Zakhara
I would imagine it doesn't really take them into account because they weren't originally a part of the FR. To be honest with you I've never given either of them more than a cursory glance because shoving pseudo-china and pseudo-arabian historical fiction into the FR just didn't interest me.
>>
>>63079054
Really? Did TSR or wizards did this? And what was Greenwood's idea for those land masses then, if any?
>>
>>63079474
TSR wanted to recreate the world tour feeling of Mystara in Faerun.
So whenever they had a project for another setting themed after an area (kara-tur, al qadim, maztica, the moonshaes*) they just stuck a Forgotten Realms label on it and shoved it into the setting.

Greenwood has not spoken much on what he wanted the rest of the world to look like, simply saying it wasn't supposed to look like earth (he's also not a fan of how other writers turned FR nations into simulations of real world europe and/or egypt).

*The Moonshae Isles are often given a pass, because they were forced in during the editing process, before the Grey Box was even printed. So while it has some thematic issues and is clearly Arthurian Legend with the names changed it's not typically seen as one of the forced additions.
>>
>>63079546
The sourcebooks try to make countries feel like Earth places, but a lot of the novels don't.

The three books that take place in the Old Empires felt like they could have taken place anywhere else in the Realms.

Alright /tg/ I'm curious to how your party would meet this random encounter. I was thinking of laying it on my own players.

>your party comes upon a robed girl sitting on a stump
>upon closer inspection, you notice the outdated style of her robes, the fiendish horns protruding from her head, and the fact that the stump is so old that it has become petrified
>a trio of small warding stones surround the girl and her stump, the gentle hum of imprisoning arcane forces audible at this distance
>at your approach she greets you and tells you not to worry much about the wards, she's perfectly harmless
>if pressed she will offer your party secrets, free of charge, if only to 'break up the monotony of imprisonment'
>upon through inspection of the warding stones a knowledgeable arcanist would estimate they'll hold for one month longer before dissipating

My character would be really confused and more than a little scared to find someone similar to them.

40k's original concept was to translate the fantasy world of WHFB into a gothic baroque space opera setting, so what if we did the reverse? What would the factions and tones and themes of 40k look like compacted down to a single world and given a coat of paramedieval paint? It wouldn't be the Old World, as they've diverged quite a bit, and AoS' setting is a different animal entirely. So what would the result be?

Tau could be Nippon, with some steampunk flavour to represent their technological advancement over the imperium. Add some jezzails, make them shit in CQC, and you got the same deal.

The Lizardmen still exist in 40k as far as I'm aware in the form of the Tarellians, so you might argue you could port those to serve as some form of pseudo lizardmen.

Beastmen exist, curiously within the imperium, Necromunda had a regiment of abhumans that were basically beastmen, (minotaurs) and if my memory doesn't fail me, that wasn't retconned.

Dawi could be the Demiurg, they got a token appeareance in battlefleet gothic armada, so I wager they are still cannon, if not overly relevant.


Now Skaven would be tricky, in 40k they were meant to be the Hrud, before that got axed and tweaked and the Hrud became some weird fish/garbage things, they were mentioned on xenology, but I think that's about it. Which is a pity because they are a race of batshit insane techno-franken-jewish-drug-adicted-xenophobic-backstabbing-ratmen.

Elves are elves, calling them aeldari, aelfs, druchi, or whatever doesn't make them less of some tolkien spin-off gone darker and edgier.

I'm playing an upbeat, cheery drow girl for a campaign. The basic premise is that they're a studious wizard looking to break the mold and prove themselves with a grand, exotic adventure to the surface.

A large part of my group's play is RP-heavy, so I want to still keep a few touches of drow style and culture with them to further sell the culture shock. The stuff I've planned so far is:

>owning a giant spider as their familiar, treating it like a dog
>no aversion to grime or insects, eating bugs collected through the journey along with their rations
>very little care for overworld social etiquette

I'd like to add some more, but this will be my first drow character. Any suggestions?

Centaurs wouldn't be great for cavalry since at least TL6, because at this point pretty much all cavalry became dragoons, which means that cavalryman who is physically unable to get off his horse will just get machine-gunned down. You are better off using them in police (as it already happened in that Bright movie).

Storythread: 'we'll just pretend it's Friday'-edition

This is a thread for creative writing of /tg/-related fiction, so epic campaign greentexts and other non-fiction go elsewhere. If you have /tg/ related stories to post, post them here, and hopefully some kind anon will give you feedback (or at least acknowledge that someone did actually read it, which let's face it is what writefags really want).

What counts as /tg/-related? Anything someone could plausibly use in a campaign (which means basically anything if you have enough imagination).

If you don't have a story ready then I and other anons will be posting pictures throughout the thread for you to test your writing skills on. This is, more or less, a world-building and character-building exercise: two vital skills for playing roleplaying games. If you don't have any pics to post, you could try posting an idea for a setting or a character, and maybe someone will be willing to write a story using it. It's also an exercise in writing though, where writefags can try out their material and gain inspiration, so if you just want to talk about world-building you may want to head over to the dedicated world-building threads.

Remember that writefags love to have feedback on their work. Writing takes a long time, especially stories that go over several posts, and it can be really depressing when no one even seems to read it (and the writer won't know you read it unless you leave a comment).

And since writing takes a long time remember to keep the thread bumped. Pics are good, feedback is better.

There is a discord for writers:

Not a fan of insect like dark elf, but story has potential.

What are some great resources for reading about card games from a creator's standpoint or a theory standpoint? I love card games and I want to eventually make my own. I am not in it to sell decks or anything, mostly just to give me another creative outlet to kill free time.

I'd like to find a place that talks about all sorts of card games and their resource systems, lore, win conditions, game length, rules, etc.

Does anyone have any books, wikis, or other sites they recommend?

For the creator's standpoint, Mark Rosewater has written some genuinely interesting articles. Unfortunately I can't remember any off the top of my head, but although I don't agree with all his decisions (it was pretty obvious to just about everyone that he was setting the bar for complexity way too low), he does write a lot about the processes that go into making magic. He gets a lot of flack (both deserved and undeserved), but the level of communication from Wizards is well beyond what most other card games get.

I had spotted a few of those. I had hoped to read about several games as well. I have a lot of experience with Magic, a bit with YuGiOh, and a little in Cardfight Vanguard. The goal is to pick my favorite elements from each game and Frankenstein them into something neat. Like, I love bluffing cards like the Deceiver creatures from Kamigawa and the Morph/Manifest mechanic. YuGiOh had neat chains like the Synchros and the Gotcha moments of Traps. Vanguard had waifus and the drive checks.

Neat. I'll look into that. Thanks, Anon.

Sup guys,

I'm going to be running a semi-hard scifi campaign, and want to operate a fake crypto currency for my PCs where they have a log-in, and can operate "transactions" between their accounts, to other "accounts", and have a page specifically for me where I can see all of their transactions, balances, and also interact with their accounts and "deposit" into them.

How would you guys go about making such a tool for your campaigns?

Uuh, like an actual live program they can interact with?

You might be best looking for an education tool. Just a quick glance at Google gives me bankaroo which sounds about what your looking for.

If your a little more handy with programming you can probably try and make your own but I don't know how much effort you want to sink into this. If so you could probably try and make a quick python program that just adds and subtracts values to a file. There is a file transfer module over SSH if your so inclined to have everyone run it on separate computers. You could dress up the terminal and give it a cyberpunk feel.

And if you really want to invest a lot of time, there's always making an actual webpage. It'll give you the most control but that actually means having to learn web development if you don't already know.
