Power Armor thread. Mostly 40k. Bonus points for rare patterns, fan re-imaginings, and so forth. I'll get us started.

One of the things I like most about this one is the legs. I'm not crazy about Space Marines having bellbottom legs, so anything that goes a different route is cool in my book.

that's pretty funny, it seems like the super feminists and incel anime manchilds both hate that style. i really like it look personally, not so much because it lacks boobs i just find the latex corset look is really hard to buy as being actual armor. but you could still do boobplate and have it look bulky enough to be 3+ power armor.
i can see a situation where you are in a zero-g environment and you have to deal with ricocheting shards of rock or metal or shrapnel flying around. and in that kind of environment a puncture might be deadly so it might be good to have at least a bit of armor. but i agree that the armor on those suits is probably overkill. definitely looks cool though.

Well, we -are- living in a culture where mentioning religion makes people uncomfortable and on a forum where mentioning Christ makes you a Christfag; my point is, it's not a "safe" call to bring the orthodoxy of any faith (be it Islam, Hinduism, or Christianity) in deep detail, even dealing with concepts like damnation, forgiveness, and salvation. People don't like those things. They turn them off so companies avoid them. When getting your dollar is on the line, it actually does take some balls to be true to a character who CARES about those things and not hide behind some generic, bargain brand version of general "faith in God, however you define it, etc." - so yes, I do actually think it takes balls GIVEN the generally anti-religious sentiment of the broader gaming community in the west. Nerd culture doesn't leave much room for religion without INTENSE criticism these days.

For a split second I thought you were talking about a Supernatural episode
Max END aside, how do you survive the fire and the canyon and whatnot with just 5 Luck?

His story is meant to mimic those of many Christian saints whose miracle was basically getting fucked up horrifically and not dying.
With Implant GRX since you move at normal walking/overencumbered speed while the world is slowed down. Though there's a little jump over a broken stair so you'll have to drop the gold, jump and pick it up.

My DM actively discourages splitting up, so i understand this a bit better than you'd think.

that said, its not that hard to force a fight. and even if the person themselves avoid that fight, it doesn't necessarily mean the rest of the group do.

Frankly, i find it an interesting playstyle, but there are ways to counter it.
I'm really new, and I'm awful at the roleplay side. I'm not very quick to think up things to say, but at the same time, the party has seemingly made me the 'face' of the group, which I suspect may partially be to make me better at it.

I am a Bully.

My DM is dragging his heals making and planning every aspect of his campaign (and having been the group's last DM), I push and shove and try to pull him to make him abandon his absolute need for control and planning. People pleasing too. If he were to throw a ball, he'd spend an hour and a half debating and studying about how to throw it before actually trying.

I've also argued with other players as to why they always feel the need to be special goddamn snowflakes, and how they can create great characters through writing and character progression, not by having the DM make them a homebrew composite of four different already homebrew classes.

Again, I am a bully. That is my sin.
I'm not sure if this is your sin, or if you are doing gods work.

Knowing Christianity though, probably both.
Eh. Coming from what the root word that sin stems from, you aren't necessarily wrong.

Whenever I've had a situation like this my players are always massively resistant to it. It's just for formality, but nope they're convinced this known good King is gonna massacre them for fun in his court. So at this point I know the rogue is gonna try to keep a dagger and the wizard is gonna try to make some bullshit excuse everytime to keep his casting stuff.
I make it a point to never meet nobility in table top.

I came out of a time where all scenes with them ended in the party press ganged or branded with divine magic and no choice but to go on a quest.

The fact there are dm/gms that continue this shit to this day saddens me to no end.
I do this all the time in my game, honestly. The noble-born PCs are allowed to keep a 'gentleman's weapon' on their person (an arming sword, smallsword, or rapier), and the Sigmarite priest naturally gets to keep his warhammer. Only one NPC bucked this trend, because the party killed his brother.
>The local count asks his invited guests to leave any weapons

Sure, but leave me this giant fucking bag of bat guano.

Since the mermaid picture thread hit an image limit and I'm looking for more pictures of deep sea monsters (and mermaids).

You should know how this goes. I'll post pictures of various deep sea gribblies and provide edutaining (that's a real word, right?) commentry about them. I've also got a good selection of creepy deep sea mermaids, which I can post as well when relevant-ish (surprisingly few deep sea monsters, though, if real animals don't count, so if you got any do post them).

The stuff you actually find in the abyss is a lot weirder and creepier looking than majority of fictional monsters, so I hope people might get some inspiration from them.

Oh yes. The hard, bulbous shells recovered from presumed surface dwellers (colloquially known as "surfacers") are a testament to the harsh environment they must endure. These extreme adaptations are required for survival in the hot, arid environment above the ocean's surface: they retain water for respiration, prevent desiccation, provide the structure required to move against the unceasing pull of gravity, and deter predators. However, it is thought that these shells must be very heavy in a non-aqueous environment, so surfacers are most likely sluggish ambush predators, waiting for prey to wander near them rather than actively pursuing it. They probably do not venture too far from the sea, as it would then become difficult for them to refresh the water within their shells. The soft parts of surfacers are presently unknown, but it is possible to make a few guesses about them. For example, eyes are most likely useless in the overwhelmingly bright surface world, so surfacers may lack them; alternatively, they might be small, or vestigial. Rather, the surfacers probably rely on a keen sense of smell, as chemical cues would diffuse swiftly in their gaseous environment.

But there is much that we may never know.

You also got the feeling from the Spartans that they had more of a code of honour than anyone else (not exactly a news flash, I suppose). Morgan and Yang could backstab you because reasons. Miriam? There's no sympathy for heretics and unbelievers. Zak only cares about scientific progress, and has little regard for humanity. Deirdre or Lal might have to think about it, but Lal is a pragmatist who will probably believe he's acting in the interests of the Greater Good regardless, and Deirdre is going to do what she feels she has to for Planet.

The only faction that you get the feeling would rather die than break their word would be the Spartans. They wouldn't *betray* you. They might act irrationally, even heartlessly, but not deceitfully, even in a world which is all ideology and realpolitik. No doubt something like this would contribute to their downfall, but there's something very appealing about that. It's probably not an ideology well-suited to the Game of Thrones-style atmosphere of intrigue, but as Lt. Daniels says: 'Bend too far, and you're already broken.'

Halfway between Carl von Clausewitz and pic related. It's a good look.
