The average age of /pfg/ implies that we've been under Eternal Summer since high profile lewdgames became a thing.

I disagree, even though HH makes it clear he doesn't like working with the 'eccentric' personalities people tend to encounter, I'm pretty certain he'd have just ended up doing what actual Caesar did- double playing and doing highly unethical stuff that's *technically* allowed due to his unique combination of powers

Was stabbed to death by the senate, including his best friend.

Partly because he didn't rise to greet them when they came to make him a God. This doesn't seem like it would be cause for murder, but basically this was a huge breach of protocol, and the actions of a king, rather than as a notional equal.

So yeah, not that great of a politician.

Mr White could easily be similar in class to Iain Sterling (strange lack of inf aside), who can probably hire up his own crew to do some fancy heists.

How do the various societies in your setting react to LGBT individuals?
71 replies and 9 images omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>53510012
Humans are a bit homophobic. It's okay if you sleep with your war prisoners or your slaves, whatever gender you both are, but don't go having any homosexual relationship on equal footing because that makes us uncomfortable.

Orcs are more tolerant, in that as long as you're badass enough to murder the haters, you can do whatever you like. They only respect strength, the rest is accessory.

Centaurs are probably a bit homophobic too because they're very family-oriented. So I suppose they'd encourage bisexuality if SOME gayness seems inevitable in someone.

Also most of them are tribal, shamanistic societies, to which the gods are by essence very close to mortals. So trans* people are not necessarily seen as weirdos, but more like incarnations of divine/spirit shenanigans. Like an MtF person would be seen, for example, as a female spirit incarnating in a male body for some reason. Trans* people aren't the only cases where that happens, the idea that spirits incarnate in people and that explains what those people are/can do/look like/etc. is fairly common.

>But straight up unflinching bigotry that actually disrupts plans or makes people want to kill you just means the players get screwed over essentially at random.

Except it's not random. If you play an Elf and walk into a town that hates Elves, you're getting screwed due to your character choices.
Same thing applies to Gays, Trannies, or Necromancers. Then again, most players I've met don't have a problem with in-game bigotry. If some homo wants to make a homo character, that's fine, but don't bitch when their homo-ness becomes a problem. Since they definitely won't bitch when the queer prince wants to take them aside for some "roleplay".

According to my ca/tg/irl friends the general view is "I'm a human every day, why not try something different" and "all the other armies are just different kinds of dudes with guns/swords/guns and swords, that's boring".

And i have a female player that sits down with me for a campaign and.we spend an afternoon constructing her characters racial background, making sure it fits the narrative and playing the character accordingly,demonstrating unusual traits in the process.

Maybe it was Dave or James. Good guys. Been playing for ages. I played my first grinder under their direction.

But yeah, currently, the introboxes are completely sold out. It's not the first time that Amazon pricebots have jacked the price up to astronomical levels.

You might be better off looking into finding the introbox second-hand without the minis. Whenever a new introbox came out, there were those who bought them up to hoard the cheap minis, but couldn't care less about the contents. You can probably buy the leftovers for chump change, and use alpha strike lancepacks to get not-as-cheap-but-still-discounted minis.

I know it's rough, but I'd also started out in a similar situation. The introbox from my starting period was very much absent, had only paper standies, and charged about as much as they do for the current intro box. I started with a map set (Map compilation 1), the core rulebook, a 'mech editing program for computer, and paper cut-outs for 'mechs. While not having the introbox available is a massive pain in the ass (And why I advocate releasing the miniatures only as a separate product or as an alpha strike bundle for cheaper than the introbox, encouraging those players who only want the introbox to pad their armies to buy the cheaper option), you're not completely up shit creek. You only really need about four mechs, maybe eight if you want to be able to swap units out, for most pick-up games at an LGS, and I don't think anyone will give you shit if you use standies while you start to get a feel for what the units play like.

>but I actually *started* with enamel paints all those years ago, and have since moved on up to acrylics.

I think that's the idea. In the olden-days, people were using the same paints as their plastic model cars and airplanes. Nowdays, acrylics - especially high-pigment acrylics like Citadel, Reaper, and Vallejo are pretty easy to find.

...but you're likely to find that the oldbeards are still rocking the same shitty enamels on their unseen.

Myself, I tried breaking the rules recently because I found out there was a line of Virtual On themed paints. Pain in the ass to use, but they're much richer in pigment then I expected compared to how runny they are.

>>53504649
At the moment, not really. I'm working more on a local basis and getting some of the main campaign stuff done first.

I'm currently writing up a main story character though - Damien Beauchamp (Who's house is on the map) who is an eccentric and psychopathic artist who specialises in statues and animatronics. It turns out that he is in love with a medusa and makes his statues by luring people to her - if the statue is expressive, he will keep it for his collection, otherwise they are cut up and used in other ways such as for panels on the animatronics or other pieces of furniture.
If the players kill the gorgon, the curse lifts and everyone turns back to normal - including the broken and chipped ones. If the players go back into Beauchamp manor afterwards, they'll find that this elegant and prestigious house has turned into something out of a nightmare with flesh, blood and bone making up the flooring, severed heads on golden stands and lifeless faces hanging from the walls.
>>
>>53509357
Yes, that's why they're relatively isolated. Trade goes on at the river port, the resources and money and moved back to the capital. Trying to setup their type of warfare as defensive, in case of an invasion their strategy is to constantly engage and disengage luring the invaders deeper into the thick forest further from the river so they're further from their supplies. The idea being a long drawn out skirmish, keeping their losses to a minimum while keeping the enemy engaged by skirmishers from different directions. Works well against large formations, less effective against small, mobile groups.

Naruto is a pretty interesting setting from what I remember of it, but it's also Naruto and probably fucked that up somehow.

The basic premise is that the world is full of hidden ninja villages that have shaky alliances so that they all don't kill each other in full blown ninja warfare. Each village has a specific element that they specialize in due to the geography in which their village is hidden. There are also special ninja magics that are passed down through various blood lines and so magic eugenics and clan politics is also a thing. There are also massive mythical monsters that were sealed away into people to contain their power.

Naruto's story is actually pretty cool but then sort of gets fucked up somehow eventually I can't remember it's been a while.
