An Idea, birthed in the bonding of a few anons in a doomed thread, ravaged by a autistic shitposter,

The premise? A new land, one where Weeb humans, Grognard Dwarves, and Redneck Elves, have come together in a grand alliance to oppose a great evil.

Help create this setting.

It's one of the two official card arts for Ink-Eyes, a female nezumi (ratfolk) ninja-necromancer from the Kamigawa set for Magic: the Gathering.
Huh. Nice to know.


Between L5R, Kamigawa, and Kara-Tur what is it with oriental settings and ratfolk?

Also welcome to this desperate flailing we've got going on here.

Well, those properties have all been owned by the same people at one point or another, right? They're probably just recycling ideas.
I believe so. IIRC Oriental Adventures was originally somehow connected to L5R.

That said I have no idea where Kamigawa happened.

Gun For Hire 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.

Gay overpowered shit

You can't tell me with a straight face that this game isn't a manchild's powerfantasy dream come true, made by minmaxers for minmaxers
Don't break the peace.

The Pax is respected both by Vampires and Mages.
Relent in your pursuit of conflict, infractor.

Mage isn't "overpowered" internally as a game. Mage adversaries are at least as strong as mages. Mage is simply a higher power tier than some, but not all, other splats.

Choices are good. There are splats like vampires and werewolves for more "street level" chronicles, and mages and demons when you want cosmic-tier gaming.

The splats were never intended to be balanced against one another, particularly in the second editions, as it detracted from the themes of each individual game.

There's supposed to be a lot of crossover storyteller advice in The Contagion Chronicles. I expect most fans to be disappointed.
If everyone in your game is a Mage, there are literally no problems being a Mage.

It's like complaining that someone's playing a game of Elders in Vampire, and that some Neonate isn't even an inconvenience.

I’ve literally been out of the hobby for years now and just found out that gorillaman got rezzed and the plot is somewhat advancing?

I'd consider this a joke if not for modern D&D making Background a mechanical choice that affects your character beyond just roleplay. It's even a short blank line on the top of a character sheet next to Name and Class.

My vote is for a 70's setting. Espionage feels more hands on and natural in that era.

>Has God decreed that all dinosaurs shalt hath the same perk discounts?

"Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, "Two pounds of wheat for a day's wages, and six pounds of barley for a day's wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!"

Revelations 6:6, clearly "wages" are a metaphor for perk discounts and "barley" for dinosaurs
Point to me where you see a drop-in dinosaur in Dinotopia.
Not particularly. People like Aizawa or Endeavor who are notably rude tend to have fewer friends but that's a natural extension of the fact that they're notably rude. I guess those who try to make a living off of merchandise like Mt Lady or Wash might not want to hang out with him? That's a guess with Wash, we only know he looks weird and showed up in commercials.

The other "races" are human bloodlines changed by magic. Some bloodlines are more changed, others less. Would the term race still fit or should I use another word?

Yes, I too enjoy Wakfu.
Races would be the terminology, yes. They're a human race, not a different species all together.
I too enjoy Shadowrun.
It works, sure. If you want to be a bit more melodramatic, you might call them all "touched", as in "touched by magic/dark magic".
If they're all bloodlines, why not use that?

I've been stuck in this feel for a year and a half now.
I go through phases
I run rpgs for a couple years
then I build minis and paint for a couple years
then back to rpgs
Have you considered taking a break from tabletop roleplaying?

My own foreverGM felt a little better after taking a break when he was burnt out.
It's easy to feel this way when nobody wants to play anything but D&D.
I haven't painted since march and I feel so guilty about it.
I've still been modelling but I keep getting ADD at the end of a project and start a new one.
The admech video game is inspiring me though. I have some dudes from forgebane I could build, or some necroids I have primed and ready to paint but thats Heresy

Which holiday or celebration is your character's favorite?
6 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
Didn't take me long to justify saving it.
Your character sounds fucked up.
On the island, about the size of a miniature continent, there is a holiday celibrating the unity of eastern and western races.
In the beginning, the eastern catfolk and the western humans fought like cats and dogs, each region taking prisoners and slaves alike, each region burning and pillaging the other in a cycle of vengeance that seemed like it would never end.
However, some 300 years ago the two regions saw the futility of their war; the elites of each army led by the king/chief to meet on their region's border. From there, they participated in a grand hunt, with the fairest maidens on each side gathering herbs and fruits of the highest quality. After the hunt, they prepared a grand feast, where each side dined together. They shared stories and began to appreciate each others' exploits, respecting their abilities as hunters. In giving peace a chance, the two races promised to set aside one day a year for a grand hunt, ending in feast, revelry, and communion. Since that fateful day, the two regions never fought a full-scale war ever again.
Historians and skeptics wonder whether it was the joy and thankfulness that has kept their allegiance, or simply the two regions coming together to contend against foreign invaders from other continents.
Their birthday. I've been counting off the days between every long rest and timeskip, and now the game is dead a month short.
It's a harvest festival that spans a week and ends with public executions. Pretty fun.
