Name a City

Posters have to decide how it fairs in a Cyberpunk Setting.

The ones most often seen are Detroit, LA, Tokyo, but how would cities not just across the US and East Asia fair, but across all the other continents? Bonus points- how would rural towns or communities fair?

I'll start- San Francisco

I imagine that Terrorists like ISIL will inevitably start nuking shit
Turn it back to the scary days with the Doges reinstated.Bridge of Sighs, secret police, hijinks .

Need to work in some really cool gondolas.
Well I was thinking that the middle eastern countries would nuke each-other (the Isreali's have nukes, Iran could start up it's nuke program now that the Iran Deal was torn apart, Saudi Arabia might start up a nuclear program).

Though honestly that's less interesting that Sandstorm with Cyber-Jihadists. There's a ton of really cool stuff you could do with a middle-eastern war in a cyberpunk setting.
You know the urban decay of the coastal cities you saw in the 80's and as was exacerbated and portrayed in movies like Escape from New York? That, accept with much fewer people, and much more racism.

I agree with >>61560059. A barmaid willing to sleep with someone for presents, money and getting rid of unwanted attention is someone who would also get interested in rich and/or handsome types easily. Especially in a career where they easily interact with them and see new people all the time.
I once played on legged gnoll for similar goal, but yeah it would be funny.
I’d be tempted to give her a more severe handicap, like having lost an arm, and make her quest the restoration of that arm, success not guaranteed.

What Once Was Edition

>What is Genesys?
Released in November 2017, Genesys is a pen-and-paper generic RPG system and toolkit by Fantasy Flight Games, using a refined version of the system presented by their Star Wars RPGs (Edge of the Empire, Age of Rebellion, Force and Destiny). Its central mechanic is the Narrative Dice System, using pools made of specialized dice to create narrative results.

That said, speaking on broad terms, Genesys excels at cinematic games where things are played a little fast and loose but all in the name of the narrative. This is not the game you want if you want more concrete wargames, unless you want to put in the work for it.

I've been doing supers. But Worm (Parahumans) based. So it's a ton of work. But it work VERY well with genesys. The abstract nature of genesys works great with supers. But like i said, it is a metric shit ton of work.
What did you have to do?
Think it is a little too early to tell. However >>61563891 has a point. The tone of Genesys system makes for more cinimatic games. BUT Genesys can pretty much be in any Genre. Off the bat I am seeing mostly a SciFi or fantasy based settings (from the Pastebin).

That seems pretty standard affair for most generic system settings.

So I'm trying to get my girlfriend into 40k. Aos is no problem, but showing her 40k makes me want to blow my brains out.

Take pic related and her response.
>"That's some steampunk Dr. Who lookin' bullshit."

She's readily expressed a desire to play a woman oriented faction with various "Pretty things." Wh40k is literally none of that.

Having spent time thinking about it, is Wh40k in itself woman repellent? The only women I've ever noticed engage in Wh40k were either doing it to make their hubby happy or it's essentially, "Rawr ;D- Gama Grrrrrl, Gi' me te attentions pls!!!!!!!!111!1"

Of game groups I've noticed AoS brings in a lot more women and grabs their attention unlike 40k. Even a lot of these new PC comics that they're pumpin' out meant to appeal to the fems seem to have more AoS than 40k content.

What makes 40k so repellent to women? Is it the Grimderp? What do you guys think?

Neat. Thanks. I've never seen those before.

>While I got no threats, I *did* get a warning from a mod for "spamming the General Discussion board" with these

Of course you did. The OF cancer goes back that far?
I'm not sure a sort of simplified ruleset exists. I mean, the current one is Campaign Operations . plus Strategic Operations, but it's not simple. Maybe some homebrewed mash of one of the Mercenary's Handbooks or Field Manual Mercenaries sets?
As I understand it HBS negotiated with PGI to use some of their mech models, aka the mechs they had in ot original game. Probably was lump sum being paid for the usage. I am guessing HBS negoatiated a new deal to get new mechs as Cyclops was not yet modelled into MWO when the original deal was made. That opens a possibility that other mechs might make it into the game aswell , like Phoenix Hawk and the other 3025 mechs that have been since modelled into MWO.

Hatchetman is a interesting one as it is HBS own model and what I understand one of their modellers had started working on it when the BT was still being developed.

>>How big is your pantheon?
Are you implying that I can stop adding more gods?
There are never enough gods!
>How big is your pantheon?
There is One True God and there are Seven Gods below him and there are Heavenly Hosts under them.
And there are shittone of demons.
>Who are the important gods in your setting?
Beside Sky Dad depend who you ask really, for every one of Seven have entire race given in for their patronage. Dwarves will say Fire-god, Human will say Healer-god etc.
>Are saints a thing in your setting and if they are,
They are.
>how are they revered?
Depends on culture. Giants have home-altars for family/friend-saints, Orcs sing ritual song about them etc. But generally, think what apostolic christians do.
>Also how to become a saint?
Die in friendship with Gods, duh.
>Why did you make your gods and saints the way they are? What is your inspiration for this all?
I just follow Tolkien's formula - built a world upon metaphysics that you agree with.
>Can you kill the gods and saints?

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>How big is your pantheon?
10 gods plus 1 bad-god.

>Who are the important gods in your setting?

>Are saints a thing in your setting and if they are, how are they revered? Also how to become a saint?
Saint is a term I use for the reincarnated special god-blessed spirits. That is, a Saint is the mortal 'vessel' for that spirit. They're typically treated well by followers of that god at least, some are famous or important, but not always.

>Can you kill the gods and saints?
The saints being somehow removed hurts the gods, they are weaker if they don't have them on the material plane enacting their will or whatever. So basically if they were trapped on another plane, or captured in some way, that's bad for the god. The badgod basically wants this to happen because he's bad for no good reason and jealous of the other gods or whatever. So you've got weird evil cults trying to kidnap the saints and steal their extra souls and lock them up or cryogenically freeze them or whatever. This is basically the main plot device for stories or campaign or whatever I end up using it for.

In addition to that, one of the gods is "dead." One of his saints was permanently destroyed and that's when he disappeared as far as the world is concerned. Later his race (dwarves) tried to perform their 100 year birthing ritual (they're born from stone) without the help of the god and fucked it up, killing 90% of the race and another saint was lost then. A few hundred years later there's a separate catastrophe where another saint and the rest of the dwarves die- tho that saint is reborn as a human. So there's just the one for a long time. That's 3, I don't remember off the top of my head where the other one is. Anyway, God missing and Saints dead/trapped/etc. That last human is an inventor(god of innovation so) and is compelled to invent the cryogenic-freezing device I mentioned earlier. He's then shoved into it, so he's out too.

A thread to talk about minis and games which fall between the cracks, or people's homebrew wargames. /hwg/ doesn't entertain fantasy (for good reason) and the other threads are locked to very specific games, so this thread isn't tied to a game, or a genre, lets talk about fun wargames.

Any scale, any genre, any company, any minis. Skirmishers welcome. Rules designers welcome.

>Examples of games that qualify
Grimdark Future, Age of Fantasy, Mighty Armies, Dragon Rampant, Of Gods and Mortals, Frostgrave, Ghost Archipelago, Hordes of the Things, Songs of Blades and Heroes, Freebooter's Fate, Dark Age, Beyond the Gates of Antares, LotR and anything that doesn't necessarily have a dedicated thread (gorkamundheim).

Thoughts on Lion/Dragon Rampant?
There's no system better for baiting /hwg/
Good simple game with just enough customisability and ease of houseruling, change the activations from “fail=end turn” to “fail=next player but don’t end turn” and it becomes a pretty great starter.
Also should never need more than 72 models in a standard game with normal scaling, so that’s a bonus with certain plastic ranges, but can get expensive for other ranges and metals.
There's some people here that really like that game but I've never heard about it outside of this thread.

Right now I'm learning about more.... Basic Judaism, and it's still insanely complicated. From how to pray during shabbat (the prayer jumps from place to place in the prayer book, some of it is sung, some read quietly, some said by a guy chosen by the public, and a part of it called "18 blessings" is actually 19 blessings long) to rules about kosher food, to every little thing.

Honestly? I'm in the IDF and it's a way to rest for two months. It's also genuinely interesting. I've always been curious about why religious people I know did weird things.
I'm probably not gonna go through with it though, because I consider conversation to a religion I don't actually believe in to be disrespectful.
The point being that this place has never been your fedora tipping haven for intellectual discussion.

Wut? Did you anons all just slip back in to denial about the irrefutable truth that Princess Space Kitten is just an alternate personality that JHow slips in to whenever he's feeling "frisky"? You ever notice you never see them in the same place at the same time? You ever notice how when one is on the board, the other 'mysteriously' becomes inactive? Think about it for a minute.

Also, please note that the alternate personality Jackson uses when he's feeling Frisky is completely distinct from the one he uses when he's feeling Fisky. That is a story for another time.
