We all know that despite everything else, D&D has never entirely shyed away from the concept of cheesecake. But did any of that cheesecake actually stick with people? Post what you think is the best female-featuring artwork to come out of D&D - any edition, it doesn't matter, so long as you think the lady is hot, cute or awesome, she qualifies.

Particularly interested in non-human female artwork.

Pathfinder artwork is okay, but let's stick to the official PF art, not the anime pics that /pfg/ likes to use for headers.

As for ICE/Drawn debate, really depend on the deck. Going for rush I tend to go for 12-14/44 with strong draw and just trashing anything not immediately needed (all the more since so fec of us play Immolation Script).

Election Day is a good shorthand for a lot of rush archetypes (not all, but a lot): if it's not *immediately useful, throw it away and get new stuff. You don't have time to lose.

Hence why I think Reeducation has strong potential for rush if we can manage to make a NBN build that support it. (Or why I think the "reveal them" clause on Graft is far from unfair - I'm thinking people are going to find out that in a slower meta, being able to rush a 5/3 and immediately being able to get the missing pieces - whichever they are ICE/econ/agenda - to score again in the next following two turn can be extremely oppressive for a runner still digging for ways to access and the credits to enable them).


Without overstating thing, we seem to be headed for a slower meta. With less strick click efficiency effects tied to running, less big/explosive effects (Medium and Account Siphon gone, but so are Making News and ABT, for example), less strictly binary effects too - with Scorched Earth gone, and the big killing cards now requiring two tags or none but strong econ, it gives design space a bit more creative room for tag effects that aren't game ending while allowing the runner a bit more leeway with them.

Still need to see where things are going with the MWL/Restricted/ban list rumors.
Since I have it on hands, if you're bored and want something silly, my current rush-casual. Not going to win tournaments, but I find it really fun to pilot:

Skorpios Defense Systems (Terminal Directive)

Agenda: (12)
3x Graft (Terminal Directive)

The runner can always run another central server if the crisium is active, and the accident can still be played if the crisium wasn't active when the run was completed anyway.
What's odd is that it's pretty common for my hand to be something like 2 Scorched, 2 agendas, and 1 ice or econ card which I'd want to play soon, so my overdraw targets are really few. Might be I'm just not scoring fast enough I guess? Especially since my scoring remote relies heavily on the only 4 upgrades I have. Could be worth reducing my ice count to get more upgrades and econ in.

In any case, thanks for the advice, hopefully I'll get to put them to use.

Magic of the 2.0 world: depending on the value and nature of that agenda, you might just ICE a remote and put the agenda behind and cash the money.

In a world where you don't have to fear a turn one Account Siphon ruining your whole game, this is a still *very* risky, but totally workable plan. And then you play the asshole with Equivocation...

Starting a new 40k army. I'm thinking I want to go Guard or Mechanicus. I know AM has a new codex coming out soon, which is tipping me in their favor. Thoughts? How do the two stack up against eachother? Firepower? Flexibility? I heard AM is a slow footslog army.
Guard, my nigga. AM is a fairly flexible army with high firepower, it's just that Conscripts and Basilisks overshadow a lot of things in the codex. My recommendation is Leman Russes and Scions. Also, pick up some Vultures if you want some juicy CAS runs. They're great for thinning out hordes with the Vulcans mounted on them. Pick up some Avenger Strike Fighters too, since they come with some options for anti armor and heavy infantry for a relatively cheap point cost.

Thickness. You multiply the wall's height and width (in feet) by the thickness (in inches) and cost. If you need to build a wall that's 8 ft. tall by 12 ft. long and 2" thick, the price is 8*12*2*4.14. If you're only buying a plank of 2" thick wood, the cost may be closer to 0.5*3*2*4.14.

All of this is covered on that page.

There was a four month long period were LoL bots would kick the ever living out of a team that was less then gold if it was pass ~35 mins. They pulled some really good combos. Riot was toying with the idea of finally putting in 'hard' bots but they could not balanced them out to were they were a good next step after the 'intermediate' bots.

Its a weak argument as for why this things will somehow happen tomorrow, they won't happen tomorrow, they will happen right after your funeral and your grandchildren will enjoy them.
Honestly progress on the field of high level computing may well be coming to a end soon. Why? Because it moves forward on the back of hardware improvement. Hardware improvement moves do to groups needing it to be better.

The history of it goes as follows...

> military go into the market
> time jump
> clerical workers/record keepers go into the market
> gamer go into the market
> graphic design become common to the point of creating demand
> military starts going with off the shelves part thus no long drive demand for new high end hardware
> big data era starts
> mobile computing start becoming important
> Us army makes a supper computer out of 500 PS3
> big data learns from above that off the shelve parts do work for most of the types of work they do. End effect is that they stop creating demand for new high end hardware.

HMLfag strikes again! like the noble savannah master
4x10pts to the Center Torso per lance. They're so hated.
They do get breaks, it's in the rules of how they function and how their armor is allocated. A 3/5 9 ton proto is probably going more viable than a 3/5 battlemech. Engines are often the heaviest single thing on many units, that's just how BT works. And quad/glider protos get to subtract two from their speed for the purposes of engine rating calculation.
>A 3/5 9 ton proto is probably going more viable than a 3/5 battlemech
A 3/5 20 ton battlemech, I mean.

We all see so many Vikings, knights, and samurai for fantasy warriors and cultures. How about we post warriors and cultures that are less well portrayed in fantasy, such cossacks, Janissaries and hussars?

There were likely more Tatar Cossacks than Russian ones, and neither were significant. Majority was Ruthenian so by modern standards kind of Ukrainian or Lemko/Hucul/some other esoteric tiny eastern european group.

Also, speaking of Tatars - polish ones are apparently remembered for incredible loyalty to their country and Armenia attempted to gain various steppe nomad allies for the crusades, so maybe they could work as the to-go exotic allies for generic knight factions in fantasy?
A lot of Armenians became siege engineers and crossbowmen, too. Although I don't know how well their crossbows compared to the ones used by Italians.

Stupid Sexy Primarchs edition.

Warmasters Triumvirate is an attempt at creating yet another 40k AU. The Primarchs have changed, and instead of appointing a single Warmaster upon returning to Terra, the Emperor is critically wounded on Ullanor. In order to make sure the Great Crusade continues, the Warmasters' Triumvirate is put in place. Tensions start running high and this eventually culminates in a civil war between Loyalists, Chaos Traitors and Separatists...

Marius von Kreimann goes to Chaos because he's very into the occultism of Rheigmarkch's Old Beliefs, which is basically Chaos worship. Einchurt himself is also interested in the Old Beliefs, which is where von Kreimann gets it from, but Einchurt isn't so pants on head about it
Is it too early for random anons to pitch Successor Chapters?
Nah man always welcoming new members.
Jump in the discord and say hi.
Go for it.

I'm still working out the stuff for the chaos phantoms-- they'd mostly Slaneeshi, under the logic that if they're going to go in for illusions, might as well be a pleasant one. They're like Cypher from the Matrix about it.

The big reason that the average Soaring Host guy goes over is because he feels like the Imperium is out to get him, then Lambach comes over and shows them all this cool chaos magic stuff and Marduk says that it is the next step in human and cosmic evolution. Marduk and Lambach are basically the only dudes who ever had your back, so you listen. Not like there's much of a choice, the ships are coming for you and you need to get moving.
Also chaos is intoxicating. It lets them soar, let's them taste the colors of the wind as they run, I mean holy crap, this is amazing. They can fly and be proud of their genefather.
Not every Legion in this AU has Successors, but sure, nothing wrong with pitching ideas if you see something you'd like to write about.
