>What is /awg/?
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, Hordes of the Things, Songs of Blades and Heroes, Freebooter's Fate, Dark Age, LotR and anything that doesn't necessarily have a dedicated thread (gorkamundheim).

I already own ~130 GW Skeletons and 20 zombies. I want to up the zombies to at least 80, but my autism and 6th ed nostalgia forces me to stick to GW zombies...

Hmm, I would have been blissfully aware and probably happily received a box like that, but knowing it's just old stock I might leave it.

Totally justified.

What did you order? I bought a couple of models to round on my EU and GCC and they arrived within a week.

I wouldn't say they dropped the ball, really. It's just way hard for someone in the U.S. to het their webstore exclusives. I'm sure there are people will tons of disposible income buying the stuff so they're still making their money on it. It just sucks that the only two Batmans (Batmen?) I'd want to run are webstore only.

I'd love to see Gotham by Gaslight Batman in the game, but at this point I'm convinced Knight Models don't want me playing a good guy and would make him a web store exclusive as well.

Tau are East Asians in space, and much like east Asians on Terra, they can not handle their liquor, and its hard to tell when they are joking, or being serious.

But Anon, what's the point of offering pie if they're not going to give any? Is it just normal Xeno culture to offer desert and not serve it?

Hey! I got a friend that is really into sci-fi so I figured Starfinder would be a good fit, but i'm seeing that all the repositories link the Pathfinder core rules. I take it Starfinder is essentially a re-skinned Pathfinder then?

Nah, they are just both made by Paizo so they are in the Paizo repositories. Likely becuase it was easier than making one for a game that only has a few books out currently.

I'd recommend HEAVILY against transferring shit from one game to the other as while they got some commonalities they are rather different beasts under the hood.
A shit, I should of looked better, found it after you said that

Thanks! Will be looking tough the book to see what I can do with it.

>Thanks! Will be looking tough the book to see what I can do with it.

Cool, best of luck. I'd really repeat that 'Don't transfer shit' thing though. The Starfinder Companion was the first 3rd party book out for Starfinder and did that...and Jesus Christ that book is a shitshow. Everything it transferred is terrible and everything it didn't is worse.

The Alien Archive has some really good tables for helping you make stuff so if you really want a creature from D&D in Starfinder I'd look towards those tables as a guide for remaking it.

Pity we never got a second season of it. Still, it ends a lot more naturally than say, Big O, so it's still a complete journey just one I'd like to see more of.

I don’t know. There’s little demand for many of us to even buy the book.
I'm just curious to look at what they've done there.
As far as I know it hasn’t even been released yet.

The same with Stripes.

Let the books actually come out first, and then we’ll see about getting scans of them.
They released it on fow digital today
Ah. Okay. I was not aware.

I’ve been a bit preoccupied with dealing with family in town for Thanksgiving.

But like I said, it usually takes us a little while after a release to get it into our scans database.

It exists, but it's pretty shit.
Just as a side note, you're better asking these kinds of questions in /pfg/ (the pathfinder general) than making a thread for it. The whole of UW is available for download in their trove.

With a new set getting closer and closer to release and Alice Cluster and Regalia cancer rotating out, let's have one of these to talk about the current state of the game and how the meta is looking.

Unfortunately, the latter. The playmat shows Welser, Ayu, and the new art for the three unsealed starters.
Well its not all bad if they don't take up the ruler slot in the box. I still don't have all the rulers from Ancient Nights.
I think leaks for the third set confirm that Pandora has a bigger role there.
Speaking of the three unsealed rulers, what do you think Reiya's other sealed item will do? I've seen people coming up with crackpot theories about how she has some connection to Zero, so maybe it's some kind of ability removal thing like Zero's ruler ability. It looks like a little sunburst as well. It's a stupid theory, but it's all I've got to go on. I hope it's not true though because I'd hate for her Mystery counters to just get dropped.
>That said, I only picked the game up around with ACN's release and play casually and infrequently, so my opinion is probably worth jack shit.
OP here, I'm in the same boat actually. I'd been looking at getting into the game for a while and learned about it, but I was already heavily involved in a couple of TCGs and didn't need to add another at the time. I've since found time for it and it's pretty nice. One thing I can tell you is that the game is very local meta-dependent. There are some overall best decks, but this game is great for playing with homebrews. I don't know if that's because of the nature of the game or because of the amount of people playing it, but I enjoy it all the same.

Tempo Reiya seems pretty neat though. This game is great for control builds and killspells.dek sounds fine to me. The additional Mystery counters definitely help her because from the games I've watched I've noticed that she has trouble building Mystery counters.

How in depth do you get with the politics of your settings? Is it just "Good kingdom and evil empire"? Is there a town with a mayor running on a strict anti-adventurer platform? Or do you go deep, really consider the policies and values of a society and how it interacts with it's neighbors?

I made a vague stat system for countries, to be used in a medieval and older type setting.
Stats go from 1 to 6, where each thing represents a common attitude or commonly encountered state.
I'm not gonna dump all the descriptions, so here's the basics:

Wealth: this represents the general availability of goods and the purchasing power of the state

1 (Destitute)
2 (Poor)
3(Self Sufficient)
4 (Wealthy)

Long story short, Mexican Empire made the promise and then collapsed.
Mexican Republic succeeded the Empire and decided it didn't want foreigners having a claim to their land and told the Texans to fuck off.
Then came the Mexican-American war and the Alamo and all that jazz.
>How in depth do you get with the politics of your settings? Is it just "Good kingdom and evil empire"?

For me it's more "Good Empire and Evil kingdom"

Example country with snippet:

The Pelleric Empire

Old Pelleria was a juggernaught, a force of nature. It commanded the Inner Sea and all gave tribute.
But that was then. Now, the Imperial remnant is greatly reduced, but its storied history and proud
traditions still carry it forward. A discerning eye might see rot, but the Pellerians see only the
burnished arms and armor of their past and look to each Emperor to re-instate their vision.
They are Kyricist, with only a small portion of the populace Traveling the Way. They have a rich
tradition of military magic and its practice is common even off the field.

Wealth 3
Society 4

Okay, I need
I need unconventional rpg conflict resolution mechanics!
Conflict between players?
Have one roll a 1d4. If a 4 is rolled, whoever secures the die (conveying if with the hand) succeeds. If any other number is rolled, the other player rolls the die, repeating until a victor is made.
No, I mean, core mechanic. Like rolling a dice over or below a threshold, but that's boring.
Time Wizards have a great mechanic called "Slapping Phase". Initially, each player has a number of different dice which he can contribute to the potential rolls. Each player throws as many dice on the table as he wishes, then the slapping phase begins. Each player who wants to roll high needs to slap the dice on the table with his one hand, and hold it there. Whatever dice remain under his hand when the phase ends go to his dice pool. Other players can do the same or be complete dicks and slap the player's hand instead. Try slapping someone's hand when it's over a couple of d4s and look at their reaction.

Baldwin pursued Saladin until nightfall, and then retired to Ascalon. Deluged by ten days of heavy rains and suffering the loss of roughly ninety percent of his army, including his personal bodyguard of Mamluks, Saladin fled back to Egypt, harassed by Bedouins along the way. Only one tenth of his army made it back to Egypt with him.

Baldwin memorialized his victory by erecting a Benedictine monastery on the battlefield dedicated to St. Catherine of Alexandria, whose feast day fell on the day of the battle. However, it was a difficult victory; Roger des Moulins, master of the Knights Hospitaller, reported that 1,100 men had been killed and 750 returned home wounded.

Despite an intervening year of relative peace, by 1179 Saladin was able to renew his attacks on the kingdom, including his victory at the Battle of Marj Ayyun that year. This led to almost another decade of warfare which culminated in Saladin's victory over the Crusaders at the Battle of Hattin in 1187.

Montgisard is a quintessential "Crescent and the Cross" type wargame, with two of the most famous commanders of the Crusades leading classic knight and ghulam armies. A better prepared Saracen player could present a serious challenge to the Jerusalem army, and a historical result is by no means certain.

On 25 November 1941 at 4:25 p.m., while steaming to cover an attack on Italian convoys in the Mediterranean, HMS Barham was hit by three torpedoes from the German submarine U-331, commanded by Oberleutnant zur See Hans-Diedrich von Tiesenhausen. The torpedoes were fired from a range of only 750 yards providing no time for evasive action, and struck so closely together as to throw up a single massive water column. As the ship rolled over to port, her magazines exploded and she quickly sank with the loss of more than two-thirds of the crew. Out of a crew of approximately 1,184 officers and men, 841 were killed. The survivors were rescued by the other British ships.

Tiesenhausen was forced to dive to evade the escorting ships before Barham exploded, and heard only the detonation of the torpedo. He could not be sure whether he had sunk Barham, or if she had merely been damaged and left the scene before he resurfaced. It was not until the Admiralty's admission on 27 January 1942 that Barham had been sunk and described the circumstances that Tiesenhausen knew that he had sunk her. He was awarded the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross that day.

A Royal Navy Court of Enquiry into the sinking ascribed the final magazine explosion to the detonation en masse of 4-inch anti-aircraft ammunition stored in wing passages adjacent to the main magazines, which would have detonated the contents of the main magazines.

The sinking was captured on film by Pathé cameraman John Turner, aboard HMS Valiant. In consideration of public morale and to protect the families who had lost loved ones, the Admiralty decided to keep the film secret until the end of hostilities in 1945. The film has been used many times as stock footage in documentaries. It has also been used fictionally in films such as Earth vs. the Flying Saucers (as an American destroyer), Task Force (as a Japanese carrier), The Guns of Navarone, "Up Periscope" (as an Japanese destroyer) and The Battle of Okinawa (as Yamato).

Its just for a few sessions, I wanted to see how it plays.
This is correct - here's the sage advice

Which means that assassin becomes slightly more viable with a wizard dip.

Moreover, if you go three swashbuckler, two war wizard, and have the alert feat you could potentially have +15 initiative mod. Not sure what kind of garbage build would rely on that though.
3 levels in Warlock is enough to be able to cast 17 out of the 30 rituals in core. You get access to 6 more at 5th level. You have to dedicate more than a 2 level meme dip for it to be good, but it hardly relies on high level play to take off.
The saddest part is Travis's favorite part of D&D is combat and this was the first combat encounter in like 12hrs of play.

Hypervariable, because where mortals have a degree of free will and reason the "fae" are manifestations of their own inner nature. Which doesn't necessarily mean that they can't be kind, benevolent, or even what you'd call "caring": they just don't think about it the same way that mortals do. They can even change over time with exposure to outside influences, but it's more like the process of being poisoned.
