Creating a language is not as difficult as it may appear. You just start from the beginning and make different words for things.

Then you can add screwy things to it like:
The suffix "-i" means "light", and "-o" means "dark".
"Leli"="light cup", "lelo"="dark cup".

It's real simple to do a 'first order' pass, but most people don't consider where language comes from, the physical universe, so they get hung up.

It is actually real easy to make complex new systems. You just do shit that has an effect. Like turn the number right to indicate it gets multiplied with the one next to it.

The real challenge in life is making things simple, efficient, optimal. Man even professional physicists forget this and it annoys the crap out of me when they do.

I appreciate you, anon.
In terms of what I want to do, crunch-wise, I need some help with:

* Making PC stats for an expy of the Shin'hare.
* Reworking PC stats for Calibans (deformed, magically-created mutants originally from Ravenloft).
* Balancing out homebrew stats for a more personally satisfying Warforged and Kobold.
* Building some new Patrons for Warlocks, including Dark Mother (creepy, scary nature deity; Lamashtu, Shub-Niggurath, Zuggtmoy, etc). and Lifebringer (healer patron).
* Building some new "elementalistic" Sorcerer Origins.
* Possibly working on a Kensai (sword-saint) style for Monks.

Any of these particularly interesting to anons here?

Magical cancer? Done deal. Turning into Chaos Spawn expies? Done. Drink the wrong pool of toxic water and your flesh will slough off your liquefying bones as you dissolve into a lifeless puddle of glop, all whilst desperately attempting to delay the inevitable by eating human flesh?

No, that's how you go about making a functioning gestalt character.

You mean like gestalt? The point of generous char gen is to allow for more build options, but you'll always have someone saying "cool, so I'll just abuse this?" In short, there's always a limit to optimization, and then there are fuckers who go past that limit.

Expand Boxnaught options, reduce cost.

Cortus Dreads are too cheap and/or not "junky" enough for budget-built contemptors.

But this was in a book where units didn't get updated if FW had no idea how to fix them. Looking at you Destroyers. All you needed was a points reduction.
>Also Emps wanting to cut off humanity from the warp so he could create a psychic race makes ZERO sense.

This has been explained so many times that anyone who brings this up is a certified cunt, You just intentionally flip what the Emperor said to just complain about something that isn't there.
>Also Emps wanting to cut off humanity from the warp so he could create a psychic race makes ZERO sense.
He didn't want to create a psychic race - he wanted to prevent humanity's psychicness (psychocity? psychosis?) from dooming it to destruction at the hands of Chaos. In fact, every indication is that he was trying to eliminate human psychics. The webway project would allow him to wipe out the navigators and astropaths. Other psychics were already being hunted down by the sisters of silence. Space marines were banned from using psychic powers. He was going to be the only one left (once Magnus had been glued to the Dark Glass machine).
Nice opinion. Would be a real shame if you had an argument to back it up.
>Also Emps wanting to cut off humanity from the warp so he could create a psychic race makes ZERO sense.
Backwards, the Emperor knew mankind would eventually become more psychic, so he planned to lessen their dependence on the warp. The final aim was to sever that connection in a way I'm not sure how.

But Dark Eldar are kind of like that, so maybe there's a way for mankind too.

>mfw Slaanesh is swallowed ;^) by the God of Human Pleasure, deliberately born out of a galactic orgy to dwarf the eldar one.

Anyhow, Warp-independant travel is (was) the way to go, and would have ensured the prevalence of this Galactic Empire. Because as you know, this isn't the first Imperium of Mankind.

One was lost when the warp became impassable, pregnant with Slaanesh, and another one was lost when everything went Skynet. Webway travel would preserve things, and now that's gone.

Still, the project would have been salvageable, Magnus and all, had the Emperor survived the Heresy and acquired another warp gate. Alas, it didn't happen.

Thinking back to the origins of D&D, how come dwarfs have come to be considered as opposed to magic as they have? Like, not just immune to it, actually averse to it on a cultural level and all that such. No dwarf magic-users, and in some later settings like Warhammer or even Dragon Age (inspired by D&D, obviously) dwarfs are said to be actually incapable of it, or at least hate it deeply. They may be capable of a KIND of magic (usually creating magic items), but not the one everyone else uses.

Why? I mean, in mythology and folklore they're obviously magical creatures, they use magic and so on. True, Gimli, the ur-dwarf from LoTR doesn't use magic (and we all know his influence on the genre outweighed the entire rest of the race), but then, neither does Legolas and elves have never been considered nonmagical. Nor were humans, for that matter.

So what happened to the dwarfs?

>Hell, one of the dwarves is written as even chasing one of the human wizards around after all is done and over, begging the wizard to bite him. Because he saw the wizard use a spell to turn themself into a werewolf and totally fucking WRECKED the most powerful drow warrior in the invading army.

That Harpell didn't use a spell, he was a legit werewolf. Also, the dwarf in question is regarded by literally everyone as a blood-crazed maniac - after being denied the opportunity to be a werewolf, he returned to his traditional battle style of "wearing a suit of armour with a ton of spikes on it, and literally tackling and writhing on top of every enemy until they are slowly shredded to death."

It follows from the British system of fantasy. LotR was unique in it's day about how the world was made and set up. It was an entirely created world that was not our world and could not be reached from our world. you can say it was 6000 years in the past, but really it's entirely separate That set it apart from the fantasy genre, where the magic was usually just a cupboard door, mirror, or dark passageway away, where people fell into fantastic worlds more or less by accident. Magic there was more along the lines of the extraordinary rather than supernatural.
It's not all that different from Conan's Hyborian Age, to be honest.
I think Tolkien had ditched the idea that Middle Earth was our earth by the time he published LOTR.
Yes, but imagine you're a japanese westaboo making a game based on your beloved western hobby. If you have to sell, would you rather have a classic with a different name or completely reshape it?

It's like making a samurai fantasy game for a western audience and dress warrior monks like templars. You want your weaboo shit, not templars.

I have pages of ship names that I'll never use. Beside the obvious names like "Leisurely Xenocide" and "If You Can Read This We're Ramming" I've always been a fan of adjective naming.

A fun sign of how widespread this particular kind of axe was can actually be seen by comparing it to walking sticks and staves around the period.
Compare the appearance of the "Tingstav" on the left (dated 1784) to the peasant's axe in the middle (dated 1630) and the axe on the right (exact date unknown, believed to be somewhat older than the middle axe).
In mining communities this appears to have been particularly widespread, with "Bergmannsstaver" (Miner's Sticks) from areas like Kongsberg (silver mines) and Roros (copper mines) essentially looking like wooden versions of earlier centuries' axes. Although the "axehead" of this kind of stick was often of a design that was more like that of the German "Bergbarte" axes. Which makes a lot of sense, considering the significant German influence on these communities.
