Drowner shores up mirrors a lot and some other matchups.

Catacomb sifter might be something to look into, a little mana heavy but worth checking out.

Why no discard effects? You just want to lose to combo decks don't you?

>>55509776
They're both okay in a single deck - Bant Eldrazi, which has pretty much fallen completely off the radar in favor of Eldrazitron.
Skyspawner gives you 2 bodies (one flying), more consistency in hitting that beautiful turn 3 Reality Smasher, and gives you an okay target to flicker with Eldrazi Displacer.
Drowner is solid in games that go long were you can tap down your opponents dudes and alpha strike for lethal. It's really solid with Eldrazi Displacer if the game goes long enough.
>>55509810
Fair enough point about Drowner, I just feel that in my local meta he's not as relevant because he comes down so late.
I dig Catacomb Sifter, I'll have to try it out for a bit and see if it's not too mana-intensive to replace Scion Summoner. Thanks for reminding me that card exists.

>Not playing in the greatest setting available to us.

There's a reason why they call them the "dark ages", vae Hircus, damn son of a lecherous goat. You turn your back on mother Rome, to play some setting of knights with "chivalric honor".

Your knights are cinaedus who will take my hard sopio at night when Legio X Equestris marches into their lands.

Playing merchants and effeminate archers when you could pick up your Scutum, Gladius, and Pila and march with us.

Well, /tg/ what say you? Will you march for true honor? The honor of your patrician house? Will your group game for Rome?

This is boring. A bunch of dudes forming a shield turtle is boring. Probably a good idea, but still boring. What /tg SHOULD be doing is discussing the changes in tactics that would be encountered when you throw fantasy magic and monsters into the mix. Do you mix mages into the infantry formations to protect them? Do you separate them into their own division? Rome got to where it was by being ruthlessly pragmatic when it came to warfare, you can bet they'd have put a lot of effort into using the tools available to your average D&D world.

>monk

That's ridiculous. Seriously. "Monks" are a human idea. There's no reason to suspect that the Umbra are anything like a monastic order. Stop spewing bullshit you know nothing about.

The Datz are a religious order of some sort, but they're called Witch-Soldiers, which means they're somewhat more analogous to the Fedaykin from Dune than a monastic order; part and parcel of being a monk is being separate from society in the main. Otherwise they're more warrior priests or mystics rather than monks.

Again, there's no evidence that the Umbra have any sort of spiritual dimension towards them. And they're dicks - in HSN3 they genocided a race and left one dude alive in a "I have no mouth but I must scream" fashion to warn others to surrender next time. And the same passage describes how they relish this kind of outcome.

And this is all after they started working for the EI.
>>
>>55509736

Svalarheima is actually their next target. But the EI is interested in Dawn because they think a Digester (the weird artifact-creature overlords the Tohaa work for) ended up there somehow.

Hey dudes. Back in late 2016 / early 2017 I remember this was the hottest shit on /tg/ and I was wondering if anyone actually tried to run one of these as a game. I'm looking to try it myself and was hoping to get advice / feedback / make this topic relevant again.

Anyway a few questions for anyone who tried running this:

What system did you use and how well did it work? I'm planning on using gurps.

A big pitfall I'm having is with an idea based almost exclusively on the setting and chars being juicy is world building may get in the way of actual game play, especially when all the threats were pretty abstract in the discussion threads. So how did you balance world building with action? What sort of action happened in a typical session? And what did you do to bring the obscure threat to the forefront when necessary?

What ideas that you had / the threads had worked best and what worked worst?

What was the average session like and if you don't mind can you provide an example of a session you ran?

Also general discussion of the setting is welcome of course.

Sounds very cool, I'd forgotten about this and I really like the idea.

I haven't done this exactly, but I did do a game inspired by first season True Detective.

The players were investigating what seemed like a very strange suicide. A very attractive woman in her early 50's found dead with her throat cut in the middle of a large bed with a circle around it of silver and gold symbols inlaid into the floor, with her hand tied to that of a 17 year old girl and her other stained with blood.

The girl was drugged and passed out. The only fingerprints on the murder weapon belonged to the dead woman, who was also chained in place a leather strap around her waist held closed by a handcuff, the key tossed across the room and found near the murder weapon, as if thrown away from the bed.

The older woman was a witch that had used magic to possess the body of the girl. She had slit her own throat before making the jump because she'd done it before and the last person she had possessed was waking up for the first time in 30 years to find herself bleeding to death. She had just changed her will to leave her wealth to the girl, and was planning on killing the girl's wealthy parents.
>>
>>55506039
That's a pretty neat plot. Yoinked.
>>
>>55505115

Remember if something is weird players are going to poke at it. They will try to unraval mysteries and might have trouble letting go of things that are strange and unexpainable.

On the bright side, dream logic means you can always turn things fast if you need to. Just have an elevator open on the wrong floor and refuse to move again, forcing them to work their way down a hallway that makes no sense to try and find another way down until they find the doorway to an open apartment.

A lot of fights in jojo are fights that make the characters travel, or the fights are during travels and the mode of transportation is factored in. Try adding some of this stuff. Examples that come to mind are the bike guy from part 4.. the dude that makes it so you can't descend in altitude from part 5. The fight aboard the train in part 5. The more crazy you get with the stand abilities the easier to make the journey from A to B memorable.

Do you read as well as watch the show? If not you totally should. Stands from part 5 particularly stand (pun intended) out to me as good examples for your predicament.

You just gotta think outside the box. Take the class as a skill set, not a background. Here's something from my unused character file.

Grimace de Ath the 6th: A well bred nobleman of the kingdom, skilled at both courtly graces and sport hunting, and direct bloodline inheritor of infamous berserker The Grim Death. Old Grim helped save the kingdom and was rewarded with a title, and while his descendants may be better spoken they're still built like football linebackers and fly into bloody rages when provoked. Also they kept the giant axe with the skulls; as an ancestral weapon it's way better for picking up girls than some dainty sword.

https://1d4chan.org/wiki/List_of_D%26D_PC_Races

We all know the classic Human + Demihuman lineup. But D&D has a much larger and broader tradition of PC races than that. Being that, on the surface, 5e is simple to homebrew for, and I have no other outlets, I'm offering an invitation to any and all D&D fans; name a race (or more than one, I don't care) and I'll try and stat it up for 5e.

This includes both obscure races, like the half-githyanki or the hutaakan, and monsters, like the centaur and lamia, just so you know. Lythari, Avariel, 4e Duergar, Serpentfolk, Deep Ones, I don't care, I'll take a shot at anything.

I particularly want to refine my own attempts at Gnoll and Gith races, but I'm open to anything.

THORNED SSURAN
Ability Score Increase: Your Constitution score increases by 2
Thorny Hide: When you aren’t wearing armor, your AC equals 11+ your Dexterity modifier. In addition, when grappled or attacked by a non-weapon melee attack such as a bite or punch, the attacker takes 1d4 piercing damage. While you are grappled by a creature, that creature takes 1d4 piercing damage at the beginning of their turn.
Arid Adaptation: You suffer no ill effects from high temperatures. In addition, you may fulfill your daily water requirement by sleeping outside, and letting dew channel through natural rivulets to your mouth during the night.
Blood Spray: As an action, you may take 2 damage to spray your own blood through special ducts near your eye into a stream that reaches up to 30 feet away. You may target a creature within that range. That creature must make a Dexterity saving throw, with a DC equal to 8 + your Constitution modifier + your proficiency bonus. If they fail the saving throw, that creature is blinded until the end of their next turn.

SWIMMER SSURAN
Ability Score Increase: Your Dexterity Score increases by 2
Amphibious: You can hold your breath for a number of minutes equal to 30 + your constitution modifier. In addition, you have a 30 ft swim speed.
Toxic Blood: You have advantage on saving throws against poison, and resistance to poison damage. In addition, whenever a creature imbibes your blood, either through a bite attack or blood draining, they take poison damage equal to half the damage done. If a creature would regain hit points from your blood, they take that much poison damage instead. During a short rest, you may spend a hit die to extract a vial of blood from your body. This vial of blood functions as a basic poison as described in pg. 153 of the Player’s Handbook except the saving throw is equal to 8 + your constitution modifier + your proficiency bonus, and the damage is 2d4. The damage increases to 3d4 at 6th level, 4d4 at 11th level, and 5d4 at 16th level. It loses its potency after 24 hours, and has no market value.
