Why live?
The goblin bard is a comedian. He wears an adorable jester outfit and doesn't know how to speak common. He needs someone in the party to translate for him. His music helps his party see the dark humor in slaughtering their foes to the rhythm of an accordion, which helps them shrug off the horrors of battle. He pleases NPCs with his juggling skills and witty jokes, even if some one else is needed to deliver them.

That's actually a zero percent chance. Remember that when they find out who he is, they check his file and it basically says "this dude is a giant murdering bastard, do not take checks from this man". I think Starfleet wouldn't have named a ship after a guy that their own history books called "the last of the tyrants to be overthrown". Probably not good press on that one.

Is any of the armour in Game of Thrones realistic or practical?

>/tg/ is filled with GoT-watching normalfags
You know, >>60367313 is right.
I would not exchange a brig, or a gambeson with chaine de jacque and gorget, with those armors, if I wanted to spar.

yeah the unsullied are really impractical and stupid outside their cool helmet design and fighting style. eunuchs would lack the strength or stamina of a normal man, their armour would be shit even if it was made of better materials and their spears are too short for serious formation fighting.

The unsullied are the objectively worst looking idiots. And you can see with their leather cuirasses how they just took a single piece of leather, curved it around the shoulders and riveted it. Or nailed it, whichever.

Unsullied are one of Gurm's "rule of cool" (but not actually cool at all, just gritty grimderp). Slave-warriors don't need to be castrated, and if I recall right he even borrows an old 'soldier of fortune' tier meme from the 80s-90s about some super speshul Latin American special ops corps that has you adopt a dog, train and raise it for a year then forces you to kill it.
>actually fighting
pick one, that's still a shit tier prop though. knitted mail and stupid looking gambesons always get me.

What are good uses of it as a debuff, rather than an infinite hp's pool?
how do i deal with a stupid person playing an intelligent character or an uncharismatic peron playing a charming person?
Same way you deal with a weak-wristed wimp playing a strong character or a sloth of a person playing mr. nimble.
I'd love to know, too. One of the guys at my table basically refuses to even speak during games and never interacts with NPCs in any way and then chose Bard. It's fucking retarded.

>Their lives aren't THAT bad! They're just serfs like anywhere else!
I would argue their life is worse than an average serf because they are also burdened with an unbearable libido and the only possible relief maybe getting the chance to jack off once a month in a humiliating situation before being beaten and chased off. Ofcourse even that requires sacrificing all their meager possessions and risking death on a treacherous mountain climb. Most serf else where can at least happily marry. Pretty shit existence.

I miss DiTerlizzi.

A slightly whimsical cartoonish style suits D&D.
3.5 has some issues, but they tend to involve the rules, not anything else. The composition of the books is really stellar, they're all well laid out and very readable with info presented in a reasonable and logical manner. The art direction was clear and clean with an obvious feel and direction it was moving in that fit with itself across all the products. Physical book quality is good across the entire lifetime of the game. WotC gets a lot wrong these days, but back in 2000 their game was on-point and they were on top of shit. Shame honestly, to look at them now and see how far the company has really fallen in terms of product quality (Magic is a flaming pit right now and 5e's quality waffles from product to product). Makes me sad to see.
Yeah I agree so much. It's why I loved Planescape so much.

That's not a revenue, though. As an aside, it's kind of sad how chilling/restricting the whole "liberal" push has become. For a group that is supposedly espousing open and free thought, they sure come down hard on anyone who doesn't think like they do. It's the same old group-think/exclusive group ideals as "old boys clubs" and racism and everything, just on the other side of the political spectrum. It's both amusing and sad.

I was under the impression that EM was never well-received because it only had a couple money cards in it. You also have to look at the potential market - not many folks are looking to play legacy. All the non-RL cards in legacy are (relatively) cheap.

I'm not so sure about that considering how much value their inventory would plummet. Have any evidence?

Because people don't understand business. WotC also has to be careful about what they reprint because if it becomes too obvious they're reprinting for the secondary market, it becomes possible for a lawsuit to be brought against them. Games like MTG come dangerously close to falling under the purview of gambling laws in many jurisdictions already. If it can be proven that WotC does pay attention to the secondary market, it'd summon a massive gambling shitstorm.
They did that in Eternal Masters (with Karakas), but the set was heavily hamstrung thanks to the RL's existence.
I wouldn't be surprised if standard wasn't that profitable for them, but new product is definitely good. There are a large number of people who just... buy shit and build decks and play with friends without ever touching on topics of meta and structured formats.
>Standard is probably the most lucrative

With numbers hugely declining each year?

Standard is shit and it isn't even recommended if you want to play MTG, I don't even understand how could anyone like the rotating format cancer.
>Standard is shit
I wouldn't know. I don't play it.

Are there sales figures for the latest sets? I'd be interested in how new sets compare vs Masters, Commander, etc.

Rick and Morty's genius perk makes you explicitly the smartest in the universe. Futurama lets you make doomsday devices on a whim. There are plenty of others but I can't think of them off the top of my head for being particularly noteworthy.

Dune, Simulflow/Mentat. Top that all off with anything that gives additional parallel processing, such as Gifted Intellect from JLU.

It's pretty crazy! It turns your brain into a living supercomputer with all kinds of insane processing and information comprehension, along with all kinds of new thinking methods to put together information in ways you never would have done before. While Simulflow lets you have several streams of consciousness to approach a problem or situation from multiple angles or maintain multiple tasks at once. Thing is, that's still all technically on one 'mind' as both of these things are inherently trainable. So anyone can do it regardless of whether they're a 1st level intellect or a 12th level intellect.

From there, simply pick up more perks to give you parallel processing, and the amount of intellect or data processing you have increases expotentially thanks to these humble beginnings and teaching each parallel processing these absurd methods. Never has losing touch with other humans and laughing at them for being braindead neanderthals plunged in the darkness of ignorance compared to your vast intellect that glows like a radiant sun been so easy! Find joy in the inability of others to argue with you as you've run through conversations in your head billions of times and found increasingly more complex ways to mock them, before deciding on pitying them and letting them think their tinker toy-esque devices they think is 'science' could even stand ten seconds to your invention before it collapsed upon its own inadequacies!
You do want to know. The box contains a parallel universe. Jumping into it results in you popping out of the box containing your universe in the parallel.

The whole episodes a bunch of dumb shit chasing a lobster man who stole the box so they can get back to. The pics at the end where they're pulling each other's boxes through so they have their own universe in a box.

My little sister has asked me to make an army for her to play in Warhammer Fantasy and another for Warhammer 40k. And like the brother that I am, I don't really want to deny her the ability to play any games with me and my gaming group. However, I don't know what army I should build for her.

What army would /tg/ suggest I make for a little girl to play in both of the games I mentioned?

I think the idea is that the nurturing aspect (i.e. hordes of babies to look after) is in and of itself feminine, regardless of what the babies are or how cute they actually are. Their state of being numerous and needy makes them cute in the eyes of the female.

Which honestly explains a lot about female voting patterns.
I agree that it is the nurturing aspect, I disagree with >>60360580 who says it's them being the most feminine, other than SoB.
I honestly think the most feminine would be the Tau. Their whole communist Utopia violent hippy shit has feminine undertones.

They are confucian more than anything else, and Confucianism is pretty masculine imo.

Honestly, just take the girl to a decent club and have her look around, ideally when there are several people playing.

She might turn out to be a Word Bearers fan for all we know her.

This isn't even coherent. A model should look good without needing an expert paintjob or conversions.
People do indeed customize, and sometimes they'll buy bad products - or products they don't like - simply to use part of it. I will never, however, concede that a bad design or model is good simply because someone else's skill can theoretically make something of it through extensive alteration. ANYTHING can be reshaped into something better given enough effort and the right tools.

People generally buy into armies they like the look of. They'll customize them and convert them, but if the model range is overwhelmingly unappealing to you, why would you pick that army? For example, my old SoB have a bunch of models converted to be using weapons that GW never gave them, but I wouldn't have bought into the Sisters if I didn't think they themselves were well designed.
Define “better”. I’ve seen models which I thought sucked but someone else whipped them into a creative thing better than models I’ve thought were better. I’ve seen player input take something shit and make it into gold.

You people don’t see the impact player input has? I’m saying that the player is the end decider of what looks good or bad and can take a bad design and make it good or a good design and completely butcher it. Therefore, there is no objective “better” unless someone can prove that various designs can make the sudden inspirations or other unpredictables better.
If the only way to make a model look good is to change it up yourself, it's bad. Just because you can conceivably do it doesn't mean the base model is not poorly made.
>Buy our dreadknight to improve it you fucking goyim. You've seen that one conversion with the lowered torso on CMON, if you don't buy and fix our shitty model too it's because you're not creative.
