People will give you some long-winded EU reason that has been inconsistently applied by dozens of different writers, but the real reason is simple.

George Lucas and his design team wanted Vader's lightsaber to be an aggressive shade of red and they wanted Luke and Obi's to be a cool blue. This is to further create a visual dissonance between Good Guy and Bad Guy.

Luke's lightsaber in Jedi was also supposed to blue, but the rotoscoping team found that it didn't look good against Tattooine's sky, so they made it green instead. The EU says this is due to some "synthetic crystal" bullshit.

Sam Jackson's favorite color is purple, so he specifically asked Lucas if Mace the Ace could have a purple lightsaber. This has contributed to an existing EU problem of "oh well Jedi can have whatever color they want" leading to boatloads of Jedi/Sith/Dark Jedi/Grey Jedi OCs wielding orange or cyan or yellow lighstabers

>Is this what people think Star Wars is?
Everyone sees it differently, though I admit I'm not a fan of a lot of recent takes on it. Espcially the Sith. I liked them better when it was just a Dark Wizard and his evil samurai buddy doing evil shit, before all this Rule of Two and Sith Code nonsense.

Hey, /tg/. I know dick-all about Final Fantasy, but I have a friend and a really good player who does. I wanted to plan a our next 5e campaign to be similar to the themes and lore of the series.

Where would I start with this? I'm sure there's been an attempt before to make a FF tabletop, but I just need some basic knowledge about the series and maybe some ideas. I'd really appreciate some pointers.

Don't forget about Biggs and Wedge!

Another big theme is that the characters either tend to be outcasts, wanderors, or forced from their home. The only ones they can really trust are the other members of the party and whatever mode of transportation they may have.

Gilgamesh is another recurring character, and not just as "it's a guy named gilgamesh" It's the same guy, who's been cursed to either wander the void and manages to vist all different dimensions in search of epic loot (swords)
I figured Bannon was the token white mage. His special ability was "heal everybody".

You are a Magical Girl, and you're trying to bust your sempai out from a prison cell that's killing her.

Her witch familiar - a living, sentient balljointed doll that's as cute as it is frankly unnerving - has assured you that whatever's killing her is taking its time, however. That it's a slow enough process that you don't have to panic and blast your way through a guard detail of Eversors - as well as tempered steel doors two feet thick - to get her out of there as soon as posible. It means you have time. Time to explore your options. Time to try and figure out a plan for the best way to get her out of there without...well, without bunging it all up and killing the both of you. Or probably the whole Officio. Whichever comes first.

And you're exploring one of your options now. Specifically, the option to ask a 'seer' for help, someone who can, as your sempai's familiar put it, 'walk the Akashic Realm'. Although now you're thinking if the familiar, as cute as she was, meant something else other than the hell behind reality when she said that. Like, maybe, 'street corner'.

Because the person in front of you, sitting on the straw mat-covered floor with a balding salaryman's snoring head on her lap - and dressed so unconvincingly like a nun that she looks more like someone out of a fetish convention rather than a church - was the farthest thing from the mysterious, spiritual Magical Girl you've been imagining.

In fact, she looked like she did things for money. ...Things other than having her lap used like a pillow while she watches variety punishment game shows on TV.

It wouldn't be that far of a stretch of an imagination, after all. You're pretty sure nun habits aren't supposed to have that big of a cleavage window, nor are nuns supposed to be working out of a freakin' Deli Heal Agency!

Well, at least if Kyuubey IS observing us, he'll now think that we won't do anything unreasonable like revealing Chiaki's situation to people that shouldn't know without getting it authorized first and the like.

So he should be less likely to suspect that we'll do anything drastic.
>[x]End the interview here without committing to anything, reconvene with Wendy outside.

Expelling the other Homus will be hard, how is she going to tell them apart? Asking Pinky for help is pretty much the same as discarding the Chiaki personality.
>[]End the interview here without committing to anything, reconvene with Wendy outside.

Could you, and the people that might actually want to vote for this one, explain WHY you'd think this is in any way a good idea?
>Bringing Pinky into this is a horrible, horrible idea.
Technically, she's already involved because she's the one that teleported Manuke to us.

But yes, getting her further involved when her goal and victory condition for Chiaki's safe return is different and opposed to ours, is a bad idea.

The MLD arguments have gotten so retarded we can no longer tell the difference between extreme straw-manning and genuine anti-MLD posting.

I do that in a few decks, but the Narset, Wanderer, and one of the Animars are That Guy, and he uses MLD. MLD isn't what makes him That Guy, it's usually a wincon.

Also what >>41540876 said. Narset only gets better with MLD. Rule of Law and Eidolon of Rhetoric are the better answers for Narset.

I guess I'll just pack edicts for Narset. Think I should run Withering Boon? I think it seems fitting for Pharika.
You're supposed to mld before he casts Narset. Or wrath after. This is why I love Catastrophe against her: it's always the right answer. Don't know what your options are in rakdos.

And yes to withering boon run it always. Also red blasts.

Hey /tg/. I just want to ask how to git gud at maps and such.

Here's my pitiful attempt.

I tend to just scribble with the mouse until I get a rough outline, think to myself "Yeah that's close enough." and leave it but whenever I look back at it I just feel disgusted with it.
Start by drawing the continental plates of your world.

Post after you're done with that.
>this guy

No OP, just start by hand drawing. The more you practice the more familiar you'll become with how to make things look natural.

Once you start feeling more comfortable with that, learn to use technology to make everything look even more authentic. Start implementing aesthetics based on real historical maps.

You'll be fine. No plate tectonics required.

This is the actual rule text for convoke, should I go with this or the more familiar reminder text version?


You make good points but largely only in respect to actual mechanical deviations. You're still running into the issue of scale we talked about before, most subtypes are basically trinket text so using unusual ones doesn't really elicit the same level of concern as using off-color rule text. In short it's just difficult to care.


The keyword is fine, the card is waaaay too strong. A 4 mana permanent that generates up to five lightning strikes per turn? It's hard to get better removal value than that.


That's what hybrid mana means. Speaking of which, can we add that "giving no feedback at all is better than inapplicable feedback" line from last thread to the thread image now?


Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
The idea works.
But you should treat it like real word debt.
Aka, you get somethign faster for a higher cost later.

The punishment of not paying on your next upkeep should ALMOST guarantee that you lose the game, depending on the power level of the spell.

Like a Lightning Bolt.
You may cast it for free this turn, but on your next upkeep you have to pay RR, if you don't lose 6 life/it deals 6 damage to you/sacrifice it if it's a permanent. Or something.
It's actually not the exact rules text for Convoke. Just the part for colorless mana is
>For each generic mana in this spell’s total cost, you may tap an untapped creature you control rather than pay that mana.
Yeah, they actually say "generic mana," weird. But yeah, I would definitely use Convoke over this.

>Creature types
Agreed. And I just want to point out now that I wasn't just making that whole thing about Rakdos soldier guy, his cards are just what started the wholw thing. And I don't really care much about what he does. I think it's a bad idea, but there's no point to bring it up again.

>Hand Cannon
Oh, it's just a proof of concept, I wasn't too concerned about balance (though I will edit it before I post it again). Though now, I have to ask if there's any real purpose to these counters. Like, why not just give it the mana cost for the effect, and the damage?
Reminder text version, it's more concise and in-line with how card text is written out.

>Each artifact you tap while casting this spell pays for {1} or one mana of that artifact's color.
