I quit Digimon
If you want to know how utterly fucking retarded and deranged Bandai is they fucking ask you if you want a digimon miniature game and if you played Warhammer in the newest set survey.

Retards are floating around a fucking table top game on top of 5 card games while failing to even make sure the product gets to stores in them or even at even half the allocated amount

the idea i have is like. the city was formerly
under Sabbat control, the Sabbat were (thought to have been) eliminated by the Beckoning and Inquisition, and the Camarilla is 'reclaiming' (invading) the city at the time of game start. There's a sizeable and growing Anarch contingent made up mostly of the few non-Sabbat that were there upon their arrival, and they want to tighten their grip on the city by putting more boots on the ground in areas where control is only nominal.

Do garou tribes outside of Bone Gnawers and Glass Walkers have any meaningful interactions with humans when they're not rampaging or hiding in a gully somewhere?
I answered this before a few threads back. My World of Darkness is basically The Crow
Fianna and children of gaia are also mentioned as common Urrah (city garou) tribes, even if not nearly as common as the Bone Gnawers and Glass Walkers

beside that the shadowlords and silver fangs used to be related to hungarian and russican noble famillies, but most of these lines are dead these days

I like the mechanical man, maybe I can use soulforging necromancy ritual to create a bunch of large perpetual motion machines to power my haven & keep it off the grid. Nothing like the wailing of a few ghosts to power the House on Haunted Hill. Though a modern day power armor suit would be badass.

What are some good racial slurs for fantasy races?

Cry more human.
Insults require context to get the proper impact, if I call you peeled yucca or milk bread you aren’t going to feel offended but puzzled, conversely “knife ear” can be adequately insulting if, in context, it is always an insult.
>his top isn't made of rubber
>his bottom isn't made of springs
>They all get conned out of taking Marcille prisoner by a barely-functional autist
Check your "privilege", elf.
>Not a single one of you has the remotest idea what a slur is and are instead posting gradeschool insults.
"Knife-ear" is a slur for elves based on physical features the same way "slant-eye" is for Asians
"Arrow-catcher" is a slur for humans from elves based on cultural animosity the same way "zipperhead" is a slur for Koreans (and later adapted for Vietnamese) because of their heads "unzipping" when shot in the head by snipers.
You could also make a fantasy equivalent to "CHING CHONG BING BONG" by having characters in-universe mock other races languages with an exaggerated caricature of its sounds, like people shouting "DO RE MI" at elves with a musical language that sounds more like singing than actual words to non-speakers

If they're good, they're good. Who cares if it's for 3.0? It's not like it's a totally different game. Update the skill list and you're done.
Just out of curiosity, what could you do if you were to grab your martials from PF1? *cough*.

I vaguely remember some ranger on a horse archery shenanigans, but I bet you could manage something cool with the PF1 Ranger and Paladin, in tandem with 3.5 PrCs.

Question for the thread: I was just digging through deities and vaious demigods for 2e/3e/pf1, and while looking for hag related deities I found myself in PF1's blood of the Coven, which has a section on Ritual Magic.

What do 3.0 and 3.5 have for ritual magic? Have you seen any other ritual magic you liked for any version of 3.x? Maybe I should add a bit of a ritual magic thing to my campaign.
Why are they crazy? Did they give any examples?
>even your 'good' characters aren't good for it's own sake, there has to be some kind of great cause or debt you have to repay
>your characters externalize their issues on to the party
>your characters always do the craziest thing possible in any situation
I could probably get more, this was a relatively short conversation.
Situation is too unclear, but i can assume you might suffer from "main chatacter" syndrome, "clown" syndrome, "self-insert" syndrome, "always chaotic" syndrome, "dark past rogue" syndrome etc. Check yourself for this things. Sometimes you just need to be a fresh magic colledge student, who goes to "get that prestige job at the local wizardry coven" or a mercenary's company member, who had been sent to investigate local tavern's thievery. Or a random goody-two-shoes druid, who is still not that much into "balance" thingy and wants to help everyone so much the Circle had sent him to travel to another Circle "to get proper education on the importance of life and death" i.e. to get rid of you. So far your situation looks so standart and undetailed, that only standart cliche answer fits.

As someone who used to play in the 2000s, I would like to know. How accurate is this?
Very. The game is now built entirely around a combo of lots of monsters with the ability to special summon themselves for little or no cost, and a variety of special summoning types that didn't exist in the olden days. Things are very fast.

You have Synchro summons, which works similar to fusion, but with less limitations
>There are some monsters with the 'tuner' type in addition to their other types
>Synchro summoning requires you to tribute the specified number of Tuner and non-Tuner monsters on the field, whose level adds up to a certain amount, and which may have other limitations, to bring out the Synchro monster from the extra deck
It's like fusion but with often more generic materials, and no need for a spell card in hand.

XYZ summoning: Tribute multiple monsters of the same level as the XYZ monster. Each one is placed underneath the XYZ monster as a resource which can be discarded to activate some special effect of the monster in some way.

Separate to that there are "hand trap" creatures. These are basically a creature with 0 attack that say "As a quick effect, discard this card to [something negative for the opponent]"; they're not spell effects so they're harder to counter, they're creatures so there are more effects to search them to the hand or recur them.

Turn one absurd boards are the norm. Banishing ten cards from your deck at random to draw two cards is considered a very strong effect, because the game will be over before you've used all 40 cards anyway, and anything you don't draw is useless.
I started playing the game back in 2009-10 or so, when synchro summoning was the new gimmick. I remember first reading the original few manga series and watching the OG anime, and really enjoying the basic system...I even got an old guidebook from the GX era that listed some of the top cards and the forbidden list from I want to say 2006?
Needless to say, trying to get into the game when the meta was already being shifted from what I'd expected it to be was a little frustrating. I recently downloaded the duel masters game on steam to play with some friends and was floored at just how complicated and frankly un-fun the game has become now, for all the reasons you listed and more. Perhaps I'm looking back at the game with rose-tinted glasses, but it certainly felt more like an actual game before all these insane turn-one plays and ten-card chains. Now it's just a competition to see who can get their crazy strong bullshit machine out first

I guess to summarize, the power and feature creep in the game has been particularly disheartening, especially since the older versions of the game were my introduction to collectible card games in general.

NTA but that's how it always was.
>It's an energy field created by all living things
>Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us, binds us.
The Force always was something within the physical Star Wars universe and always intended to have a material component, because Star Wars is all about hybridizing fantasy and scifi, and in scifi, "psychic powers" are material. It's also an implicit rejection of strict dualism, as part of the eastern aesthetics of the series: the material and the spiritual aren't the same but they echo each other. This is why Jedi meditate and practice complex techniques, why Sith inevitably ends up physically fucked up, and why he felt the need to include Midichlorians. The Force was never anything "out" of the universe by every character's description.

This works.
Considering Filius is on an island, the best defense against the holy warriors is sinking their boats. If it takes them more than a year to arrive, he should have enough time to have an elite team of krakens and dragons prepared. There's very little medieval tech can do against an underwater or aerial assault. Prevent them from even landing, and we won't need to fight in the first place.
If they arrive even earlier, then we will have to rely on impromptu fortifications built by the architect. From underground tunnels that allow us to raid their backlines, to sinkholes and basins that turn into kill zones once they enter them. We have the homeground advantage, and will be able to leverage it better than they ever could.
Luckily, the holy warriors are not arriving as an army, but more as a series of raiding parties. We do not have to fear a full-scale invasion, so repelling them will eventually settle into the same tedium as pacifying rambunctious savages, barbarians, and monster girls. As time passes, our plans progress, and our strength grows.
I say we see who’s helping the crusade targets. Tiberius was on the abaddon crusade’s ass
Gristletooth seemed to be open to Filius's offer for a coalition, though Silas hadn't responded.

>Cyberpunk 2020 vs. Cyberpunk RED?
Cyberpunk 2020 is the second edition of the Cyberpunk TTRPG that focuses on simulation gameplay and has a black trenchcoat aesthetic.

Cyberpunk RED is the fourth edition of the Cyberpunk TTRPG that is set after Cyberpunk 2020 following the Fourth Corporate War, focuses on more balanced gameplay and is more streamlined but has less content.

The only difference between a bozo and a regular asshole is the bozo will leave a few extra Christmas lights on the detonator of the IED.
Yes, but it's also not a fucking Looney Tunes show. The Bozos were always a stupid gag that people wound up growing attached to (like most of the 2020 gangs, to be honest), which is the only reason they're in RED. I will say that the concept of "circuses" was a smart move on RTG's part, because it means that they don't always have to be a gang of completely out-of-place circus clowns and can instead be the grimy-as-fuck juggalos that they really should've been.

Personally, I'm just going to replace them with another gang outright, and say that they were wiped out by a coalition of other gangs who grew tired of their shit (with secret backing from a few of the higher-ups in the NCPD, of course).
Can't believe the Bozos were wiped out by the Coldsteel Edgehogs.
Oops..It appears I made a mistake. Here on the report it clearly says they're the Coldsteel Edgehegs.

Your table your rules. I wouldn't be against having them in my game. As far as the tone of the game goes, it depends on the situation.
see >>92899646
I think a gang of cyberclowns going around fucking with people is right at home both as disposable themed mooks as well as a commentary on what Night City does to people. You think the Bozos are ridiculous, meanwhile, you have regular chooms chopping off all of their limbs and replacing them with cybernetics. This goes as far as plucking out their eyeballs and upgrading their regular penis to a cyber penis and you're telling me clowns are too "silly".

If you really think that, go ahead and call MaxTac because we have a cyberpsycho on the loose.

I am not being meta, I am saying that the Nid codex overhypes their abilities (like most faction's codices)

But time and time again, the nids have lost despite greatly outnumbering their opponents. At some point the Imperium probably realizes that Chaos or Necrons are stronger opponents and prioritize them instead

Also, the nids seem very inefficient in terms of using biomass, if they could create unlimited armies from a few hundred worlds they would have already done so already. The Tau can probably make a better army strip mining these worlds than the Nids can
Why are you arguing this like a hypothetical when there are literally multiple published stories from GW already about Tau and the Imperium teaming up to fight Tyranids?
>comically grimdark and self sabotaging
only when the plot demands so

they are often shown as competent but very callous

the ratio of competent to incompetent is up to each individual's headcanon, but clearly there are enough competent people to keep things running for the past 10k years
the whole point of the setting is to come up with excuses for everyone to fight everyone else

sometimes the Imperium will see it as being in their short term interests to ally with the Tau and vis versa, but overall both prefer fighting each other to stockpiling arsenals to fight the Nids, so either both are led by retards, or both have come to the conclusion that Nids are overrated
The Tau have more to gain by taking Imperium worlds than they lose (especially since they're far more efficient with the worlds they do have) while the Imperium...is just kinda retarded whenever they send a crusade against the Tau.

You're penalized if fumble the spinner while hiding or revealing the disk.
Our group isnt that harsh, if the spinner is in an unclear area and it is obvious you want to go to one region (because the other region would do nothing for you) then you can just place them. The arrow getting bumped is annoying, its a good idea to watch the disk as you flip it over, so you can quickly adjust it before seeing what others are doing. Or pin the arrow down with your thumb.

What >>92905030 says is a basic, but correct summary. I've also encountered far more bizarre things in my relatively short unlife. A golem of sorts possessed with a true soul. A bronze head that requires half a city power grid to activate and who speaks unknowable truths to any who asks. Evil spirits that possess mortals and twist their bodies. Beings of pure shadow from a lightless world.

Welcome to unlife, Kindred. There's always some new secret to uncover.
I know we’re like magic and stuff, that’s nice, but are aliens real? Also what would happen if we went to space? If Sol is as bright as a small star while we are under the light of another astral being, would we still burn?

All those questions about space torments me when I can envision our kind’s salvation but know that Gehenna will take us before we reach it.
>Welcome to unlife, Kindred. There's always some new secret to uncover.
Honestly a pretty catchy slogan for shreck.net kek. Or at least ye olden shreck, the tories and tremere ruined shreck by making it an image board, but enough of me whining about ye olden glory days.

>I know we’re like magic and stuff, that’s nice, but are aliens real? Also what would happen if we went to space
Aliens? Either they're real, or some government psyop wants us to believe they're real. It's a common thing with journos and military intel, they leave bait that falls into the mouths of netcrawlers all the time, but Shreck 1.0 kept a number of government files on stand-by related to roswell.

Going to space, on the other hand, can't say for certain. But the curse we share is definitively supernatural, and there's a reason you won't find any vampire in the artic come Summer.

>I've also encountered far more bizarre things in my relatively short unlife.
I've lived a rat's life since the 40s, don't have many 1st hand encounters but there's a lot of strange shit you'll find when you specialize in finding dirty little secrets. You ever hear of that Pentex company that sprouted up out of nowhere and now owns just about everything? Some secret project they were working on got leaked around '06, they might be the reason lupines exist.
the weirdest thing i have meet in my short unlife i am supposed to call it right? (beside the self proclaimed demon) is the kia-said nosferatu that lives upstairs in the library i work in however that guy turned out to be really nice dude who only wants me to order him books online because nobody wants to teach you how to use a computer if you look like a nightmare apparently? which is weird because the guy i got this link from was also a nosferatu
If you have the opportunity, I'm sure they would make some exotic beverages for you. You could also say Melas' sire sends his greetings.

Also, does anyone, perhaps Mr. Crimson Pinstripe, know how much a Tremere neonate is worth? I haven't had someone to help evaluate such things for a quarter century and am unsure what to do with it.

What non-combat abilities should a fighter/barbarian have?

Rather than being built into the class themselves, D&D could put more emphasis on actual skills instead of side-lining them and making it so only non-casters actually have to use them and con be effectively circumvented most often with a spell.

Moreso if the spellcaster actually has to use them in conjunction with spells.
Barbarian should give you absolutely nothing except maluses when interacting with the main civilization's folks.
Barbarian means two things, every time. Someone unsophisticated/uncivilized, who's main advantage is physical prowess. Now since you're a huge retard, I'll explain. Uncivilized means a more primitive culture, which means closer to nature and natural forces, which means my simple explanation covers both "unga bunga" AND drudic/primalist at the same time. Also Conan would not be a single class barbarian anyway. So yes, there is a singular archetype.
no, barbarian means anyone that isn't a roman, no matter their culture level

a timetraveller with TL12 equipment would be a barbarian to the romans
