I myself find dungeons distasteful, I prefer wooded engagements or skirmishing warbands. And though I hate to disagree with such a great chap, dragons, when handled with a fairytale flair make excellent sport.

Also, do any other gentlemem agree that Landsknecht are just a superb design?

Elvish culture is next to nonexistent.
Let's take music. Elvish music is one or two dumb sluts moaning weakly while "playing" the harp (read: haphazardly brushing their hands through the strings once in a while).

Contrast with this famous orc war chant:

While you're at it, notice the clarity and rich sonorities of the Black Speech. While Sindarin and Quenya dialects are little more than unpleasant, sloppy gurglings full of irrational and irrelevant grammar rules, the Black Speech is a vibrant, beautiful language with a dynamic yet simple accent and expressive sonorities, aided by a versatile yet unambiguous set of grammar rules and terms, making it perfect for rhetorics of all levels, as well as formal expression.

Elves are savages who live in trees, which they clumsily sculpt into crude approximations of art nouveau architecture (aka "noodle style") without concern for homogeneity or ensemble structure.

Orc architecture is at once practical, impressive and daring, orcs do not shy away from including straight sharp edges and subtle concave curves in positively massive buildings, without failing to conform to standards of durability, security, and visual coherence, resulting in an unique blend of gothic and classical architectures; this requires a sum of technical and artistic knowledge far beyond the capabilities of elven civilization.

Orcish culture is the summit of refinement compared to what elves produce.

Oh God, I'll get that. Here .... I will return before you can say "antidisestablishmentarianism".

No Game No Life is just poorly balanced. That's not really representative of the time. Isn't that also the one that lets you summon people from other Jumps?
It's not passive growth, but Stat Allocation from Arcanum, and a training from playing videogames perk like I Totally Know Kung Fu from Oreimo combo together really well, allowing you to train anything by playing videogames.

Forgotten Realms and SimAnt are the only ones I can think of off the top of my head

> Height doesn't exist all the time in my reality.
Y'know, I'm playing a BESM online tabletop currently, wherein our party is trying to fight off some eldritch whawhozit. It'll destroy the world if it gets summoned, and although it's generally amicable, it states that its summoning is fated and cannot be stopped. Kindof fatalistic in a way, and uncompromising.
When we said we'd stop it anyway, that fate was a thing worth fighting in that instance, it used the phrase, "You might as well fight against the existence of height."

Anyway, this is the long way of saying that line of yours just now made me inordinately happy and amused.

I usually average around slightly less than average height for whatever my species is. Unless I'm a cat. Then I am cat.

There's that one from Generic Xianxia, although I think it still requires you to go out and live normal slice-of-life style in order to grow stronger. It's sortof not training.

Or you could just absorb power from someplace. Just jam power from other sources directly into you, even if it's bigger than your head. That's a great way to power up!

Let's take a minute to reflect on the good old fantasy campaign mainstay of the tavern.
...Or maybe I just want an excuse to post my collection of barmaid/tavern wench art.

fucking whore. trying to separate me from my Sylvie with her big stupid breasts!
I am not sure if this is the appropriate thread for this but, I have an idea for a game where the barmaid is secretly the BBEG.

She subtly manipulates the players into eliminating her competition and those who know her true identity. After every target they kill, they get an irresistible urge to return to her tavern, where they receive their next target through a "public notice" or helpful advice from her. The drinks she serves them all contain a powerful mind control substance that keeps them coming back for more and under her control. Along the way there would be clues as to what is really going on (like other dead npc adventurers they previously saw in the tavern at target locations and each target's reaction to them showing up).

If they discover what is happening, they can decide have a final showdown with her at the tavern; if not I would just carry it over into the next game with their new characters.
It's less interesting for it to be mind control than it is for her to just be charming and persuasive. If you reveal to PCs that they're being mind controlled they'd be pissed off - "Why didn't I get a saving throw? I'm resistant/immune to Charm/Poison!" - but if you have a sexy tavern wench who's a little bit flirty and is a consistently good source of information that helps them on their missions, both universal and personal? Hell yeah they're going to keep going back. It's much more satisfying if it's player decision that falls into your trap, rather than "Nah you were forced to."

I mean what would you do if the PCs just said "let's burn the tavern to the ground and go somewhere else" when they finished their first mission? You can't tell them "You feel a strong compulsion to go back to the tavern and have another drink, and you aren't allowed to do anything else." That would suck.

No, because digital photography helps by removing a more significant lump of the skill and knowledge gap that exists between an enthusiastic amateur and a trained or talented professional. You can snap a fantastic, professional looking picture completely by accident with the right gear, but if you can't draw or paint for shit, all the fancy software and hardware in the world aren't going to help. Worse, painting in digital is a different enough experience from doing it irl that even an accomplished artist can't just hop across without a period of adjustment.
TL;DR- you're full of shit.

Welcome to revelations.

Most of them were not.
Read the fucking bible! Anti-christ is someone who does everything opposite to the way christ taught you - pacifist who takes care of the poor, loves everyone and prays in private, hiding all the signs of their worship - anything opposite to this is anti-christ.
I realised the sheer madness and audacity of the Crusades when, in CK2, I marched the biggest army of the Kingdom of France from Aquitaine to Jerusalem and lost half my army to attrition before even the first fight in front of the Holy City.

>The hospitalier knights devolved into a bunch of petty pirates who grew fat on looting mediterranian trade after basically abandoning their charge of fighting the Barbary slave trade.

they didn't have any fucking money. after the seige of malta, they received a flood of funding from european sovereigns and they proved to be pretty effective at disrupting the slavers and rescuing prisoners.
if i'm being honest with you, mediterranean trade deserved to be looted. pretty hard to justify not smashing italians to pieces when they are trading slaves with the people you are supposed to be fighting.

>The Templars were such dicks that they had to fight so many popular revolts that they abandoned Cyprus

one revolt, the only one they fought. they had overextended by taking on cyprus, had a small garrison on the island and introduced innovative taxation in order to repay denbts to richard i
nothing uniquely dickish.

>The fourth crusade was legendarily cunt-y as already established.

on whose part, really? were andronikos and antichristophorites not dicks when they murdered the teenage son of manuel, his wife and all the retarded italians in constantinople?

The Ork faction is in a bad way, real bad. I am of the belief that giving every single unit a +1 to their BS wouldn't fix them, they're that bad. What could the codex introduce to make them playable?

>Cap it so they always hit on a natural 6 and it'll be okay.

No, it won't. Ork shooting simply doesn't have enough weight of fire for this to be reasonable. Going from BS5 to BS6 is a 50% reduction in effectiveness. 15 Lootas firing on average will hit 10 times. Reducing that to 6's means they hit 5 times. That's around 1 to 2 dead Marines, or 2 to 4 wounds stripped off a Rhino. That's dreadful for a unit costing 255 points.

The only way to fix shooting modifiers with Orks is to make them not apply to them, positive or negative.

>Honestly, though if you are playing orks as a primarily shooting force your missing the point of orks.

Oh you're one of THOSE people.

Let's go through the Ork list and see what units would qualify as shooting units. For reference, a shooting unit is one that you'd ideally want to be shooting as opposed to close combat. Obviously all Ork units bar Grots have some kind of CC ability, but you don't want your Lootas in melee.

From looking at the model, the body is a Deff Dread, head is from the Black Orc fantasy kit, claws are I believe the Defiler. The feet are Deff Dread, I don't recognise the pistons for the legs in particular but they could be from any walker.

God, I wish. GW playing funny buggers with the damage table is one of those things I've been wanting for ages so it tends to come up a bit when I discuss ideas. I think the last time I mentioned it was when people were discussing how to fix penitent engines (And my idea was having them have a purely positive damage table, where they start off ok and build up towards blenders of death the closer they get to that desired repentant death).
they are easily the strongest index army and can stand up to codex armies pretty well

Except you’re wrong, you retard. Luke fails to destroy the Death Star when he uses his conventional skill set and only does so after finally accepting the narrative’s lesson. All his years flying crop dusters meant nothing because he hadn’t accepted the lesson. I swear you morons have never actually consumed the media you talk about.

>Should the bad guys be more morally ambiguous? Should the good guys be kind of incompetent assholes, so its understandable why people might fight for the ruthless yet efficient bad guys?
I'd take some inspiration from reality and have the good guys also be capable of committing atrocities if pushed enough or if some of their more dubious commanders get in charge.
Just because you're supporting a good cause doesn't mean that you're immune to the type of revenge thinking that leads you to massacre villages and slaughter surrendering foes.
You should consider making an actual argument then, but you’ve failed thus far. Please google narrative conventions and traditions and learn something, unless you’re one of those retards who really believes you understand an entire medium of culture better than all the experts because you’re a “real nerd”

Idea to buff sorcerer

>Pick a class: bard, cleric, druid, paladin, ranger, warlock, wizard
>For every metamagic you know, you may pick two spells from that spells list
>Charisma is your spell-casting modifier for it
>You may exchange these spells on level-up as you normally would with Sorcerer spells, but it must be from your chosen list
i was asking if there was a class that has buffs to improvise weapons
I'd say make it a fighter subclass or a pugilist homebrew subclass. Its a very limited gimmick.
honestly I don't think you need anything fancy for sorcerer. use spell points instead of spell slots, merge sorcery points with spell points, buff their spells known to the wizard's baseline (or give like 10 free origin spells, two every other level).
Just play monk and flavor your attacks to be a no trable jackie chan type, IE instead of "I make two unarmed attacks" say "I grab a bottle, smash him in the head, then go to stab him with the jagged remains of it". No need to fuck with mechanics.

Version 0.5 of my first homebrew, trying to recreate a class similar to Pathfinder's Cavalier. Can I get some feedback for it?
