Sup /tg/ one of my friends is trying to get me into a game called Legends of the Wulin. I'm a huge fan of Ancient China flavors, but from what he described to me, combat doesn't seem...tactical? I come from a 3.5 background with a splash of 4. But I also take part in a weekly game of Don't Rest Your Head where no maps or minis are used at all. Anyone have some first hand experience? Is it awesome?....Does it have mages?

First off, I know "OLD MEME IS OLD". But still, has there ever been any real cases of someone using it to outflank a squadron or even a single superheavy behind enemy lines, particularly in any tournaments?

I think I am retarted. I am pretty new to tabletops and have a very stupid question that I just cant figure out. Is a bonus spell and additional spell you can cast at a level or an additional spell you can have at that level? Sorry for being an idiot.

Had he been born a few thousand years earlier, Yao Ming would have been a great conqueror. Instead, he plays a children's game for the amusement of poor people.

We constantly hear about the characters THAT GUYs, Edgelords that bleed razors, and Mary Sues. We hear tales of rape, fetishes, paladins falling, and Chaotic Stupids eating the McGuffin. We hear every way in which traits and characteristics of a character or story are done horribly. But have you ever been in a situation where someone actually pulled it off correctly? Recant me the tales, /tg/. Of the time that the Paladin fell and actually sought redemption, or began his lust for vengeance as a blackguard. Of the time that you played a clinically insane, raped, or romantic, and actually execute the character's personality in an proper manner? Tell me of those times, anons for I know truley in my heart: Anything can be done in a game of pretend, so long as you do it correctly... Except Vows of Poverty. Fuck that.
I need to design a space... 0 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I need to design a space tugboat for a sci fi campaign and maybe some of you guys can help me. The tug will be used to haul cargo both long and short distances. It should be able to do anything from placing satellites in planetary orbit to towing the wrecks of major warships from battle sites. FTL travel and artificial gravity do exist in the setting but other than that it's on the dirty and gritty side. Tech level is roughly comparable to the Alien movie - some freaky high tech does exist but simple space trucker schmoes won't have access to anything they don't need for the job. I'm aiming for equipment that is clearly sci fi but still relatable without too much tech babble. I imagine the tug is basically just a huge space drive with some kind of towing device, maybe a tractor beam? So what do you guys think, how big or small would the crew be on a ship like that? What kind of specialists would you need to pilot, navigate and do the actual towing job? Any ideas on how to handle specific systems and functions? I'm open to anything really.

Best character ideas for Pen and Paper games that never came into fruition? Post your tales of woe here. My friend and I planned to play a DnD game where he would DM (which is rare, usually I'm GMing in games like Dark Heresy or Rogue Trader). I made my character before the day of the game, a Dragonborn Invoker who would have severe anger problems, and his movement while invoking would be to flip off people, so that whenever he gave the bird tendrils of Holy Devine Wrath spewed from the fingertip to slaughter the HERETICS. But we never got to play... What about you guys? Any forlorn characters?

I need character art for my NPCs. I will begin with some of the main ones, and if my desires are fulfilled, I shall move down the ladder with additional requests. -A spooky mage girl -Super survivalist soldier knight -A dashing teenage psychic guy -A kroenen-lookalike. -Young military punkish type girl Otherwise, 19th century military looking people of all assortments will be accepted, either with magical or knightly overtones. I'll post of what I've got, but it's not much.

Our GM proposed an idea for a setting where humans are extinct or almost gone, ascribed magic properties and spoken about only in legends or fairy tales, like Fae, while the world is ruled by other humanoids and monstrous races. Thoughts? I know the HFY and anti-HFY brigades will turn this thread in a flaming shitstorm in a matter of minutes, but before that let's try to have a nice discussion, m'kay?

How come in ancient mythology,... 248 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
How come in ancient mythology, Arthurian legends, contemporary fantasy, D&D 1e and 2e, and even Japanese games and anime with swords and hammers in them, the party leader has a roughly 75% chance of being a melee weapon specialist with quick wits and great leadership abilities... But in D&D 3.0 onwards and Pathfinder, the fighter is a dumb thug with no use for Intelligence, Wisdom, or Charisma, and virtually no useful social skills? Why is this so far apart from the iconic "fighter as party leader"? The closest thing you can get is the 4e warlord, which does have a use for Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma and does get social skills in-class. 4e fighters can have Wisdom secondary, but are still awful on the social skill front. Paladins are too niche and only work for intensely Lawful Good party leaders.

Sup /tg/ Don't know what got me into wanting to try Board Games out...Maybe I'm tired of spending money on MTG so often. Anyway, my group consists of about 5 people, and I'm looking to introduce them to something new. None of us have ever done a RP game or board game, but we've all talked about trying one. I'm pretty sure it's just up to one person (me) to bring something to the table and we'll give it a go. I'm going out to the hobby shop tomorrow to buy: >Game of Thrones and >Battlestar Galactica What are you guy's experience with these? They've said they've wanted to try out D&D or something new. We are all going slowly broke from Wizards fucking us. How often do the games usually go? Are they replayable? We prefer to have long game sessions (something like 2-3 hours or more). Anything you've to say will help! Thanks! Also, any recommendations.

Greetings, my name is Jace Wildspeaker Vess the Ablaze. I’m a 27 year old Planeswalker (MTG fan for you mortals). I transcribe new spells and potions in my spellbook, and spend my days perfecting my casting and dueling. (Combo, Control and Midrange) I train with my library every day, its spells can cut through steel because it has been honed over a thousand times, and is vastly superior to any other weapon on earth. I ignited my Planeswalking spark two years ago, and I have been getting better every day. I speak Ravnican fluently, both Azorius and the Gruul dialect, and I write fluently as well. I know everything about Ravnican history and their Guildpact, which I follow 100% When I get my planeswalking licence, I am moving to Ravnica to attend a prestigious magic school to learn more about their magnificent culture. I hope I can become an Izzet sparkmage or a Azorius lawmage! I own several hooded robes, which I wear around town. I want to get used to wearing them before I move to Ravnica, so I can fit in easier. I planeswalk to my elders and seniors' homes and speak Ravnican as often as I can, but rarely does anyone manage to respond. Wish me luck in Ravnica!

So /tg/, how would these guys match up against the Primarchs in the fluff? I say fluff, because we all know how a tabletop matchup would go, even with restricting the primarchs to the same numbers.
