How to roll dice: "dice+2d6" without the quotes in the email field rolls 2d6. "dice+5d42+23" rolls 5d42+23. "noko+dice+2d6" rolls 2d6 without showing the roll in the email field.

In the rules department, you can look at http://www.4chan.org/rules - all global and board specific rules are in full effect. Apart from that, only two rules are important.

So um, anyone else notice the fuckload of Warhammer games that are coming out this year?
Mordheim: City of the Damned
Space Hulk: Deathwing
Battlefleet Gothic: Armada
Bloodbowl 2
Why now? Why all from the same company? Why has this gone pretty much unnoticed? Will they actually make Warhammer popular again?

Not to my knowledge. Me and my mate have been focusing on mp and reporting bugs there.

There's also minor camera problems, like showing you a wall because it chooses a blocked angle.

They realized that their overpriced plastic models line and poor business practices wasn't a safe bet anymore, so they branched out into video games based on tabletop games that already exist that they can continually release overpriced DLC for.

And phone games, because they print money.
Are the controls still unintuitive as fuck?
Not him, but the controls are easier than your mother.

Voltaire's "Crusade". Should be on youtube somewhere.

Always wanted to see a paladin order of sponsors. Like, you get sent out into the world to do general paladin shit with a vampire in the back of the wagon so you can explain the good life to him.
Cleave and Smite
Waaaay back in the day, I tried to work up a CG paladin variant. They got Shatter instead of lay on hands (for breaking bonds because FREEDOM), got shiny magic wings for a period of time instead of a mount (though they got a companion spirit thing, it was mostly just question/answer shenanigans) immunity to compulsion instead of fear, and eventual permanent Freedom of Movement.

Later, I rehashed the idea and gave setting LG pallies wings later and mounts first, and set up some background for slotting them both into a homebrew setting. Godly Realm paladin machinery was run by dead paladins, basically, and they also served as the companion spirits. LG pallies could requisition equipment, kinds of mounts, etc. with the properly worded prayers, and could midcombat request more smites and ability uses via prayer.
CG pallies got a grab bag on mounts, and they'd often leggit at the end of the summon time leaving them mountless for a while... because the entire side section of the bureaucracy was made of loose cannon paladins eager to get back into field work. They had a chance not to use up ability uses because of shoddy paperwork, too.

Back in the 80s TSR released the demigods module that listed several of the Lovecraft mythos gods.

Chaosium then proceeded to sue them and won. Because on the bike to defer Luke and his tend to be removed from the world of dragons and dragons.

So despite Cthulhu technically being in the public domain Chaosium threw it's weight around and got him pulled from the game once before is there anything stopping them from doing it again apart from not wanting to be dicks?

Does anyone know if you can get S&T modules on VASSAL?
ASLAnon did them on Zun Tzu, it seems a better platform to do such things.

I may have the worst group in the world /tg/.
When we played warhammer 40k, everybody powergamed and argued.
Same with magic.
Whenever we play tabletop RPGs (all homebrewed by me because they refuse to actually sit down and learn a system) they make ridiculous characters, murderhobo their way through everything and expect their actions to have no consequences. If ANYTHING happens that they don't like (basically if their retarded shenanigans stop for even an attosecond) I get called a shit DM and my system gets shat all over. I just want to have fun, but I simply can't because of my group.
I don't even mind about magic and 40k, but I do want to properly get into tabletop RPGs. I sank 80 quid into the DnD 4e starter kit and 2 books only to have it used once, where I hae to roll everybody's characters because they "couldn't be bothered". Even then, they are in the mindset of "I'm annoyed because I can't kill important NPCs in Vidya, so I'll just do it in tabletop form instead. I've tried talking to them, a few of them want to run serious games, but the other half simply refuse to play if their character can't be a half dragon half god semi ogre ninja who uses 4 katanas who can kill an entire army with zero consequence. Where do I go from here? How do I have fun?
Sounds like everyone except you is having fun. Why u gotta ruin it for them?

You're staring at the ceiling of Amata's bedroom, restless and confused.
Amata is holding your left hand, looking at you confidently, expectantly. She knows that this is a difficult decision to make. Literally: not a cheap moral quandary, but an important choice you must make with minimal information, that will impact the future in ways you don't know yet, and that would require a technical and strategic expertise you don't have.
Tia, clutching your right hand, is curled up in a ball on the other side of the bed. She's not even following the discussion.

You suspected this for quite a while now, but now it's certain, it seems. Tianna is an artificial island, and Dancing Smoke is what's left of the patron goddess of the Titan that the island is built around of.

And now the Titan is a giant hot potato that you have to decide how to cook.

...that metaphor was weird. Maybe you're hungry. You've lost track of the last time you actually ate food, in fact.

"You've seen more of the Titan than anyone else." You tell Amata. "What can we do about it?"

"Even I have just explored... About one half of the upper side of the Titan. The superstructure. So, about one quarter. The lower half is completely blocked out and filled with soil, earth and sand, apart for maybe a few rooms. No idea how much is intact there."

"What about the Light of Judgement? The main weapon?"

Plus, weapon against the many, many varied threats against creation.
>And this decision kind of IS a big deal.
Which is why I think it should be broken down and each smaller piece of its whole handled with greater care than "DO ALL THE THINGS IMMEDIATELY!" like the current vote is.
>Spoiler: it's pretty obvious that Tianna's "Demesnes" are actually fluctuation in the Titan's power system that you can tap in.
Any chance of deliberately engineering a few more fluctuations in the power grid - either to generate additional Demesnes in the future... or maybe temporarily irradiate a portion of the island that some nasty undead were unloading troops to?
Tinkering with the Reactor, will that kill/hurt Smoke the same way moving it would?
Good point, but i think that possessing a superweapon like that will get all creation in our asses

Bump so it survives the night
I have found:

flaming, floating skull that talks
dragon egg (some hatching required)
plenty of jewels, sparkly ones
mystery potions
really angry ogre
pool of scrying
gold in various forms, but mostly coinage
books of magic
nasty curses that linger
staircases that go up, but just circle back to the floor your on somehow
Lots of warded chests to trick looters. Break one chests ward only to find that the chest was a ruse and spawns something or pulls you into a puzzle dimension.

But really I think he'd had just about anything tucked away. Potions, magic scrolls, books with forbidden knowledge, rare weapons, rare armor.
Enchanted clothes that keep the body at an ideal temperature and cleanse the body.
Boots that enhance leg strength and mobility.
Gloves that enhance the ability to do precision work and also add a strength bonus.
Ring that channels 3-5 stored spells with infusing mana into it.

She should Counterattack by raping the Navigator.

Have you ever tried running a noblebright, old fashioned, Final Fantasy-themed campaign? I've been replaying the old games recently (from I to V) and I'm impressed how the same story archetype hasn't grown old yet. Do you think a convoluted story is needed for making a campaign enjoyable or should it all be about the smaller picture?

Play Bravely Default?

Everything I've heard about it says that it's a return to old-style FF.
Actually, yeah. I have played it. Not beaten it yet, cause I'm such a sucker for SSB4.

It's nice that you know where I'm coming from, though. All my friends go apeshit over the newest Final Fantasy tech bullshit. And that's why I'm foreverdm. More than half their sessions are describing the gadgets and glyphs and the crazy clothes.
The last FF I played (before picking up Bravely Default) was 6, and I'm beginning to suspect that this was a good move.
>More than half their sessions are describing the gadgets and glyphs and the crazy clothes.

>Implying that people aren't interesting in those things
>Not liking complex/crazy/fancy clothing and description porn
>Not wanting to hear about the smoothness of silken fabric as it glides across your bare skin as though it were a lover's kiss.
>Implying detail is a bad thing

Even if the later FF games have worse plot or mechanics, they look fucking amazing. They are quite the breathtaking visual experience and for that they have some measure of worth. There is also nothing inherently wrong with tech bullshit and it is purely your opinion that this is a bad thing. I feel sorry for your friends because you sound like an asshole.
>Even if the later FF games have worse plot or mechanics, they look fucking amazing

Your idea of "looking amazing" is an over-detailed clusterfuck with no focus, direction or coherency?

Yeah, no. You have no idea what good visual design is.

You go to LIBRARY and gather books related to MAGIC SWORD. You read them and learn that Magic Sword was made by MASTER SMITH to aid in fighting evil. Evil monsters who touch MAGIC SWORD are weakened but MAGIC SWORD itself is quite dull, which means anyone who wants to fight something evil may want MAGIC SWORD along with a better weapon.

>Read more.

How is that That Guy behaviour? That's pretty much exactly the way I expect Halfling revolutionaries to roll.
you really expected anyone that would willingly choose a halfling to not be a fuckface?
I fucking hate you so much right now.
The half-lings revolting against Saruman at the end of ROTK is because of food and housing. That's pretty much what's win them over to winning back the Shire.
choose a less shitty race next time, fucking faggot

I do have some objection to that. Namely that there's no real point to it.
Because I was talking to Gobble, mainly, and wanted to be identifiable.
In what way? Everyone involved gets to feel good, and Clair gets to explore her sexuality in a safe environment that doesn't involve diving into other people's heads and getting her feelings all mucked up with those of the people who she's leeching sexual experiences off of.
Why does she need to do that? ?ore importantly why do Kat and Robin have to be a part of it?
They're in a monogamous relationship.
They dont need to, it's just a fun activity to participate in.

And it hasn't exactly been monogamous so far.

Holy cow, we've reached thread 5.

Your name is Alice Zief, the Armagus technician who doesn't know anything about their own past. This whole amnesia thing is starting to get really annoying.

Recently you're proved yourself a paragon of responsibility by being a referee for a brawl between the apprentice of a special forces team and a relatively ordinary boy, apart from his ability to shove his foot deep inside his own mouth which is quite exceptional. You'd like to think that the former will help discourage the latter in the future, and maybe he will start to think before he opens his mouth.

Of course, after that the apprentice's father figure, one Commander Terrence Irons of Irons Independent Military Contractors, came by. Thereafter you taught Ragna the value of an apology, while the Commander lectured Bullet on the importance of maybe not breaking people's bones to defend his company's honor.

Right now, you are settling in to enjoy some light conversation with the man while Ragna recovers enough to attempt the walk down to the lower levels of Kagutsuchi. The only question is what you want to talk to the Commander-

"Please, call Tager." Very well. What do you want to talk to Tager about?

Okay, changing to this >>38508939 then
realy we are going to use the o hey look over there trick if this actualy works i'm going to laugh me ass off.
Can we observe the captain? Our bluff working? Can the solldiers themselves be considered environment and can we affect the probability of theit actions? Or is it only the not living things we can affect? Can we observe a falling train or something?
sorry for being a dumb
no i don't think so the OP used nasu marble theory as an example.
say you have a bag with 10 marbles 9 Whites and 1 red we can then grab a marble out of the bag it most likely being a white one we can then observe this happening and change our actions redoing the grab for a possiblety to grab the red one that is basicly how it works atleast for as far as i understand it.

You now have a "mage" in plate armor that tanks pretty well.
Don't you need heavy armor proficiency before mastery? Being a dwarf only gets you medium.
