I'd love to see a modernized high-poly version of this. It's a great concept. Combination of generation ship and ass-kicker. They're here to explore and study, not to make friends.
>>
>>63078823
Basically, it took so much energy to get the ship to our galaxy that they can't risk damage. Anything that fires at them gets blown to hell. No diplomacy. Enormously thick shields, huge weapon capacity, strong defenses. It's here to explore, not to negotiate. Later, if this galaxy is worth it, there will be diplomats and prospectors and all the unpleasantness will be smoothed over, but right now they're doing drive-by science. They don't want to pick fights, but if you start one they'll finish it with extreme prejudice and do science on the wreckage.

/tg/ has been around for almost 12 years now and in that time it seems nobody has finished a recommended list for what we're actually about. So I figured we should do that.

If you want a system put on the list give me the title and the edition, how rules light or heavy it is, and explain why it should be put up if you can; if enough people agree that something goes on the list I'll put it up. If every edition of a game is good or if it doesn't really matter what edition you play then specify that. Lets try to avoid the edition wars here, theres enough space on the chart for every version of your favorite heartbreaker.

I'll start by proposing the obvious meme suggestions, should GURPS and/or D&D go up?

Warhammer Fantasy should definitely be there, preferably second ed although I haven't tried the new one yet.
Great, all around and easy to get to system for low level dark fantasy and a quite an iconic one in many countries and circles.

By the way I think we should probably separate the chart into genres. Fantasy systems, sci-fi systems, steampunk system etc.

DitV is absolutely worthy of inclusion. It's an OK game with an interesting premise, but essential reading for its attempt to do something really different with the system.

What would be common categories then? Fantasy, Horror, generic system, sci-fi? What if your whole gimmick of your game is that it doesn't fit the usual table?

Just proxy it with a square box of some sort really.

They did have a Land Raider model but it they were only produced such limited numbers (during Rogue Trader era) making them nigh impossible to get a hold of.
>>
>>63077197
Land Raider was widely available during Rogue Trader's time, pretty much every army could use it. But the plastic kit wasn't updated for 2nd edition. The Predator kit was changed heavily to metals and plastic, the Rhino kit stayed pretty much the same with the addition of a vehicle accessories sprue iirc. But the Land Raider just didn't get revisited. I suspect cost was a big factor. GW then was not the GW of even a few years later and every single plastic kit was a big investment for them, so they focused on producing more smaller vehicles and re-works of existing hulls (since there wasn't really any land raider variants other than the original 2 lascannon one) where much cheaper to produce metal components could alter the design.

Got revisited in EPIC to start with though, seems like pretty much every vehicle got prototyped in 6mm first back then.

The race is comprised of light-based humanoids who are reborn into new forms and personalities after their respective deaths. Making them technically immortal.

The morality of the previous incarnation gets passed onto the next with subtle differences being added every so often. For example, say if the previous incarnation was a noble and upright person, the following incarnations would be at their core, noble and upright, but they would express it significantly different--likewise with personalities. In addition, the race will get a sense of Deja Vu if they are in a scenario or setting they've visited in previous incarnations of themselves. As a result of this, the societies typically are very tradition-based. Although their population can neither grow nor decrease, so you would not see any empires or the like. However, many empires view them as valuable warriors for their immortality, so they are scattered all across numerous empires, never to meet one another in their lifetimes. Extremely decentralized as a result.

Additionally, they pass down their muscles and strength for each incarnation, as they are made of light. Thus, they are invaluable for military officers.

They typically are seen wearing vibrant or ornate military designed clothing as well to distinguish them from normal humans.

What decks are you guys currently running?

I'm currently running a Bjorne/Moonbase combo deck. Essentially, when Bjorne is killed, you draw a card for each point of his
permanent power at the time. The use of the +10 boost cards for Bjorne's suicide attack on the Moonbase will, therefore, not figure into the number of Plots you draw upon Bjorne's death.

I'll post the deck list and strategy below

THE MIDGAME

Pretty simple, if things are going well. ATO the Moonbase, and
keep using the Rosicrucian's action to select the critical plots:
Pulitzer Prize, Martyrs, and Privileged Attack. Hopefully, you'll have all
three of these by Turn 3, definitely by turn 4. Once these cards are in
your hand, ATO Bjorne, if you can. (If you're feeling risky, you can
attack Bjorne, with the Clone's +4, but I wouldn't gamble against
that 11 or 12). Now you're in position for The Trick:

* * * * * * * * * * BANG! * * * * * * * * * *

Link Bjorne to the Moonbase. Play Pulitzer Prize on him, following
up with Martyrs. Narrow your eyes, look evil, and attack the Moonbase with

options (feel free to let the other players know you'll be taking a

time):

Option 1 (The Fun Way): Use your Disasters and power boosters
to start destroying groups left and right in a thrashing frenzy.
Maximize this killing spree with the remaining Privileged attack, and
Fear and Loathing.

Do you "fudge" your dungeons?
I mean, say there is a puzzle with an answer you had thought of, but the players go in a completely different, but interesting, direction. Do you just adapt and sure, that's the answer, or do you stick to your planning?

What about dungeon layout? Monster weaknesses? What a certain magical item does?
How flexible are you with your dungeons? And, I guess, dragons?

>Go to the OSR trove and compare them to other attempts to write up the same races

I saw what they had and was inspired by it. However, I felt that there had to be some changes. The Ability Requirements from the S&W Book of Races seemed a bit redundant if they were going to be played in the White Box edition.

>Lesser Keen Detection has no mechanics

I’ll probably just write it up as: “When searching for secret doors, roll a 1d8. If the die lands on 1, a secret door is found.”

>Races listed usually have multiple powers when White Box races have only a few.

I thought that the powers would balance out with the class advancement limitations. Perhaps I put way too many racial powers.

It can work with moderators, but mostly the "le epic trolling may may" people will usually ruin the immersion. The thing that breaks it the most though is the massive scope of it all, it's easier for a smaller number of people to do it, but when it's so large that can be an issue.

I've been RPing on WoW's Moonguard and it's fun as fuck. It's a shitshow, but a fun shitshow. You can't really meet lesbian night elf demon hunter cat girls in tabletop without having to sign up to be around them for a long term and basically know them in person. In MMORPGs you can meet all kinds of interesting people and then never see them again or maybe see them again in an unexpected place. Also it enhances the gameplay itself because the cities are always more lively with people living in them. Over all it's the most fun I've had playing video games and the amount of writing practice it's gotten me is really fucking nice.

Danger! World FTK because it’s really unhealthy for the gamestate, and that’s saying something with Gouki Knightmare still around.

Altergeist in second because I don’t like dealing with backrow-heavy decks and this one is the most viable.
