What's the best way to represent power armor in a game? Just a boost to strength and protection? Independent strength? Any other options?

What about prosthetics? Mecha?
>>
That probably depends on the system in question, and on how you wish to portray the power armor.
>>
>>54543671
This.
Give a system, because power armor in SR isn't the same as GURPS isn't the same as 40k.

I guess I just mean generally, from a game design kind of standpoint. I'm also curious about general opinions on how others think it should be portrayed.
>>
>>54543834
Still says nothing, because their are many ideas of power armor out their.
First, you have to decide if it's something you wear or something you pilot.
Then, what do you want it to DO? Power armor in Fallout, for example, is there expressly for use as heavy fire support infantry and close quarters superiority, while 40k power armor is much more multipurpose, tending towards higher survival and visuals.
Decide what you want it to do, and build it towards that purpose.
In 40k, power armor adds to your armor soak, your strength stat (but not your toughness), some visual/perception information and a handful of other benefits like ease of weapon carry for humans.
However, the Dreadknight, more a mecha (but still technically power armor), has it's own stats entirely, but the reaction times and mentals of the pilot.

Would khorne and nurgle work together to create something like the rage virus?

Yeah, maybe. Khorn hates Slaanesh, and Tzeench hates Nurgle, and none of them really get along well. But they're capable of working together.

Yes, but they would be perpetually trying to find ways of backstabbing each other through out the whole process.

Since Khorne hates Nurgle the least out of the other chaos gods i'd say they might.

I'm currently dming my irl group (5e) to let our regular dm moves houses and play for once. Got 4 sessions under my belt.
This one will be continuing in the style of my last session, which deviates from the standard both the players and i normally have been in. I give them a Plot Twist token each, improvved everything while asking players to fill in certain details. No rails to run on as far as the eye can see.
Got a text from a player asking if he could bring a friend, i say yeah, tell me about him.

> Player: "He is the kind of player that wants to kill everyone in the party. Ha"

I've asked the player (who plays an edgy tiefling warlock assassin in the main campaign) to pass along that "the same page tool" questionnaire, but already feel out of my depth.

Anyone have some tips?

It's a parallel example to show how the nuD&D creators are putting "play what you want" before the tone of the world. It's like letting you play a transdemisexual in Lord of the Rings, it is not a part of the setting, keep it the fuck out, it ruins the tone. Just like playing a minotaur in Middle Earth would be stupid because that shit doesn't exist in Middle Earth. But the nuD&D players will whinge and whine, "stop restricting me," and "fun comes first, your autistic setting doesn't matter" and then laugh hysterically when they roll a nat20 and force you to have Denethor suck xir dick.

Why are you giving responses to the troll who is doing this literally just to get responses?

So my party decided they wanted to fight something insane, so I chose Iudex pre-puss of man form as one of the bosses. Note the game is Dark Heresy Ascension. Pic for reference.

He also just stands there while you wail on him, is easy to dodge, and easy to parry.

Also he has a strange habit of lying down and giving up on life if you parry him.

It's since been fixed well enough, I played it with zero issues on a 970. It's basically more JC2.

Get the DLCs though, especially the Air one. It gives you a powered wingsuit and makes map traversal way, way more fun.

You're so fucked. 3rd E is such a shitfest to create content for, especially the "five-billion at-will abilities and spell lists including summons and status conditions and all sorts of other bullshit that you have to keep track of" that high-level 3rd E encounters are.

Almost unplayable and hideously tedious to GM, and that's *with* prep.

>>54542481
Do you need campaign ideas/elements, or just plot hooks?

Try the elder evils book. One of them should be appropriate for you to throw at the party. You don't even have to be subtle or restrained about it. Understand that the paladin and cleric will absolutely murder any undead-having scenario.

Try the Leviatian one. It should be fun.

Stop a vampire from activating a deity powered Doomsday device who works for the fucking God of Vampires itself fighting through the remnants of the deities old Pantheon, an Elven princess, and save the Multiverse so that paragons of Lawful good and Chaotic good show up to thank you, fighting multipl eepic-level threats along the way.

Earn the Ire of Vlad Tolenkov, The Vampire Shagging Lolth in the process for actually killing an active member of the Union of Eclipses. Though probably not, as he's too busy fucking Lolth, and trying to get his cult together, even though his deity won't let him, and the plan would have technically flooded the universe with Elder Evil god tier vampires anyhow.

For extra tweaking, get your hands on the Sword and Sorcery Ravenloft rules to edit the Vampires to have their age categories and better relevant powers for 3.5

Neither did the original, at Gygax's table: they just herded NPCs through traps and made off with a couple of bags full of treasure while Acererak was distracted by the rest of the NPCs. The first time someone 'beat' Tomb of Horrors was pretty much a slapstick smash-and-grab. May as well have been directed by Guy Ritchie.
>>
>>54543621
Yeah, Gygax's own group was pretty used to his bullshit by the time they ran that.
Didn't he also have a Rogue that clung to the ceiling through the entire dungeon to avoid his traps?

Daddy (the king) is largely apathetic to his daughter, keeping his attention on grooming her brother for leadership and actually ruling the kingdom. He funnels her some of the vast treasury to keep her occupied while paying her no mind. Born into the lap of luxury but nothing to actually DO, the princess takes to moonlighting as a masked villain, using her allowance to hire thugs and bullies to take over local crime gangs, plunge dungeons, and collect powerful artifacts. She ends up building a dangerous, trapped filled dungeon complex filled with all sorts of monsters right under the castle, with daddy none the wiser. She causes chaos all across the kingdom, forcing the king to call adventurers to hunt this mysterious new enemy-all none the wiser that it's his own daughter doing so essentially out of boredom.

So I always liked the really weird Morrowind lore. You've got half-gods fighting moons, cyborgs from the future as elf-hunters, deities hearts being the fool for huge golems, towers as foundations of the physical plane or space colonies occupied by battlemages. This is basically what I often like in the mythologies of many settings. They talk of these weird old times, where everying was extroardinary, and seemed like both a mix of mythology and science-fiction. Nirn was supposed to be made from 12 different planets.
So I'm wondering is there a role-playing game that gives you this feeling? Ones were the the characters will fight gods, travel through time, alien races that both weild powerful magic but also travel to different planets. Something, weird, surreal and epic.
I'm of course not asking specifically for any of the things I mentioned. Just something that gives you a similar feeling.
