turning costs MP, but a torso twist in the shooting phase doesn't
Another thing to consider: Dracs would've erased their cultural identity. In the Combine, it's assimilate or we will *make* you assimilate. The Bears at least let them retain some of their heritage and foundings, and gave them protection from the Combine.
Utterly fascinating. Now I wonder about the little ACs on old russian AA tanks like the ZSU 23-4 and that 32 version. Thanks.
I play MegaMek exclusively because no BT-bros nearby, and with all my MP spent it still lets me torso twist.

They aren't. But they're shoving all this transgender/othergender/whatever sidebars into every book now. I don't give a shit that you're whatever, it shouldn't have to eat up space in a book; that's a GROUP thing and people shouldn't have to be told that 'this is okay,' because ultimately it's not going to change anyone's mind on that topic ANYWAY. Especially in the condescending method they use.
Yeah, and when you rise you find out that small religious town becomes a large atheist city, and your grand-grand children became elder themselves and out to perform Amaranth on you... provided nobody did it on you in the sleep.

For some inexplicable reason, every male presently on /tg/ has turned into a fully armed and armored Space Marine, in exactly the place and position he was before. The force responsible allows you to choose if you wish to be a Tactical Marine, Devastator, or Assault Marine.

You magically have an infinite amount of reloads for your weapon. If you are a mechanic or something techy like that you're a Techmarine, in the unlikely case you're a doctor or at least in med school, you're an Apothecary, and in the even less likely case you're a priest or something or training to be one, you're a Chaplain.

Your personality is the same, but you now have the training of your average Tactical Marine.

Girls, both of them, turn into Sororitas.

A less cynic or sarcastic view is to see the adventurers as having a low attention coefficient. Because let's be honest, as they find more and more stuff as the adventure goes on, they will forget about the village.
"The Dark Lord is seeking the Staff of Ra! We have to get it before it does! Quick, let's fly!"

How about "Basic Pattern Recognition?" Like how 5 of the neighboring villages got destroyed by monsters, the 4 others by adventurers.

>crackers are incapable of compliments
It's science fiction. Spess magic, or laser swords, doesn't suddebly change the rules of science fiction genre. By your half-assed arguments, Dune would be considered space fantasy.
>Dune would be considered space fantasy.
it is tho
So would B-Wings destroying capital ships.
Thats because Dune is Science Fantasy. You're acting like SF is a bad thing. It isn't. It's just a distinguisher. In the same way that you wouldn't mix up a crime drama and a period costume drama, you wouldn't claim that Star Wars and, say, Star Trek fall under the exact same heading. They're similar but distinct.

Grim, dark, dungeon-crawling systems. Morale system. Traps that cut off your legs, not simply deal 1d6 damage.

What does /tg/ use? I've had a lot of OSR systems (like LotFP) recommended to me, but they never quite felt appropriate. What's recommended?
5 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
One system worth looking at is called 'The GLOG.' It's from the OSR writer that does the Goblin Punch blog and it's basically designed for his Centerra setting (iirc).

Very simple, like a more-simple Basic D&D. The two most interesting elements are...

>Class differentiation.
Rangers track their best kill. Fighters track their kill count. Thieves track their best loot. Each class is meant with a different gimmick. Some weird classes are on the blog as well, like 'sapient gas cloud trapped in a balloon' and 'lobotomised void monk.'

>Varying Encounters
All the provided encounter tables on the blog have a good amount of variety. 2d6 orcs with 2d6 HP each? Well, every orc with 12 HP is a 'berserker champion' and anything with <5 is a 'shaman' who can cast inflict wounds. There's usually a variety of potential motivations in the tables as well.
Zweihander would be my recommendation. It's a spiritual successor to Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 1st and 2nd ed. All the rules you would need for a Darkest Dungeon style game: wounds, fatigue, sanity, nasty diseases are all there.
Bruh, this right here. The death and dismemberment table is the best part of the system where its easy to leave the fight but generally hard to instantly die.
b/x or od&d lbb, with unknown armies' madness meters and a willingness to accept that most people will not want to go into a death-hole twice.
But thou must...

Regular legs. I've never really been a fan of the slippery snake body stuff.

It's pretty straightforward, pretty much just a human but with natural medusa extensions + injectors as a metagenetic positive quality, a slight modification to base stats, and an appropriately adjusted karma cost. I have it fluffed as sort of like Nartaki, in that they mainly popped up alongside surge but in a more uniform way. Only affecting women, and mainly around the Meditterean/North Africa but also a few elsewhere in the world. More common than Nartaki though, there are several thousand scattered about. Their hair takes on the appearance of snake species that don't exist, usually with traits of several existing species, and they gain eyes and small patches of scales to match. I'd post it but I'm on mobile right now. They don't actually have any gaze abilities, but the character I'm playing pretends to have one and wears sunglasses all the time and threatens people who are too dumb to realize it's just a myth.
Guys, I think we're all ignoring the important question here: what does it feel like when a woman uses magic to take a dick that would be far too large for her to take without magic? Is it a good feeling? Does it hurt? Is it a good pain? And what's it like on the guy's end.
well if I was some kind of degenerate I would say something like Kuroinu ep3. But I am not and would have no idea.
So, a question: Assuming I had cybereyes with thermographic vision, cyberears, and a few Noizquitos, could I turn off my hearing and standard vision, fire up the noisebots, and give -24 to everyone shooting at me while taking no penalties myself? I know my life is forfeit for even thinking of this.

>Redpill me on TftL


I'm confused as FUCK.

I'm trying to make a Animist in Runequest 6 for a Glorantha game- I want to make a Kolati shaman. Now this isn't terribly complex- Kolat shamans are rare but not unheard of, and animism, while confusing, is pretty damn cool, given it's focus on powers through spirit bargains and fetishes.

The problem is, first, that you can't start as a Shaman- and that's fair, starting characters aren't all powerful of course, but you can start as a Spirit Worshiper, the tier below Shaman. You can still bargain, bind, and see spirits, and can use fetishes, so while you can't go into the Spirit World, have a spirit pull out an enemy's soul, beat him up, bind him into a spirit and possess his body quite yet, you can still do most of the good stuff.

Buut- the book doesn't tell you what magic you start with. Now, it mentions a lot of stuff about magic, but every other tradition starts with spells dependent on their magic skill- Animism mentions nothing of the sort. No starting with fetishes, nothing. But, it's implied.

So, can anyone more versed in the rules help me by telling me if I am meant to start with spirits/fetishes, or if I'm going to have to dedicate in game time and experience rolls to getting access to magic unlike all other magic users?

Also Kolat is pretty boss. I am looking forward to finding the Wind Within Me. I've had to make a spirit tradition up for him, since he doesn't have one in the Glorantha Cult One Pagers, but oh well. I figure he's got Ancestor, Elemental (Air, Earth, Fire, Darkness), Nature (more accurate Air spirits doing the same thing) and Guardian spirits available as allies so far, and Fetches at Shaman level.

I want to get this guy done, because this is the third character I've made so far, and I'm a bit done with it. (Arkati Sorcerer Zorak Zorani, dropped for being too offensive to fellow Orlanthi, Yinkini God Talker, maybe kept maybe dropped, neat concept but not magic enough for me)
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
The former. I'm tired as fuck, so that might be why you think I'm shilling, but nope, I don't give a fuck if you spend money or whatever, I just want an answer to my question or some discussion maybe. Maybe about Runequest, maybe about Glorantha, I'm not picky here.

Given that the system has split in two, I dunno who you'd even give money to? I mean, I had to search through so many old /tg/ archives to find the pdfs I needed for a lot of the backstory and setting stuff. Thank fuck for /tg/ archives.

I'm just a retard trying to figure out if I get some shiny fetish magic at chargen or if I've got to invest time and XP into doing it in play to get any, which would kinda suck since I got the impression from the GM that we'd be pretty busy.
Ask your GM.
Page 177 has Starting Magic.

1 relevant spell/power for each 20% in your magical skill.

So that should be one Fetish per 20% in Binding.

Don't worry, yeah it is a bit weirdly placed.

What you forgot (which isn't important since its applied in the field anyway) are the green and/or brown dots on the yellow paint.
Really? Shame, I love their medieval Russians
Anyone know what Strelets "mystery Campaign" is?
>the Airborne boxset, a couple airborne squads and then also a MMG and medium mortar.


> getting started deal

Sadly the don't offer that "build an army" or other starter army sets for Italian paras.

I'd go for 2 times the box set with the 22 minis instead of 1 box and then a couple of squads. The box already comes with a mortar and other special weapons too.

What also might be worth picking up is the "Duel in the Sun" book which has the late war Italian Paratrooper entry. (It is, just as the other BA books, in the OP though).

You also might want a vehicle later. I'm not sure if the Italian paras had any tank support during the war, but if you want a tank, the L6/40 is an amazing light tank in Bolt Action (rulewise).
They stopped doing their normal kits and now they sell boxes with 4-5 infantry or 2-3 cavalry. Shame.
