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.

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.

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.

fuck you Torn Armour Crusaders

fuck you Torn Armour Crusaders 6 posts and 1 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Because of you, Defiance Games is no longer making their hardsuits because all of you moralfags had to whine about Torn Armour(some miniature company that makes shitty furry fantasy miniatures) not getting their money back when its THEIR fault that they invested in Defiance Games. Also, to the people who support the kickstarter: you DESERVED to be ripped off for supporting a shitty miniature company, did you see the fucking greens? I can sculpt something better then that with only a toothpick and fucking play doh, no instead, you gave some stupid gamerbitch 50,000 which would give her money to start her miniature company(mind you she invested in Defiance Games so they can cast her miniatures and she gave them money to work with impossible files)

A superhero setting where a virus is giving people their super powers.The power virus works like a virus to so who you get infected from influences your manifested power. So if you get your power from someone who can fly, you may gain the ability to levitate. if you then infect someone they my gain the ability to levitate objects. and of course there a people who are immune to it. People are in a rush to become infected despite what The CDC says . the CDC don't want people to become infected because they have no idea where the virus came from and has SOMEHOW contained it to a few cities that people are constantly trying to break in.

Outlaw Star: Grappler combat

Outlaw Star: Grappler combat 57 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
So, while i watched this show as a kid, i only just go to see it all again recently which made me realized how fantastic it was, essentially being a party of adventurers who actually have to deal with the shittiness of the overhead cost of a space ship as well as the way they handled space ships in general. Me and my group have been wanting to run a campaign set in the Outlaw Star universe and while i haven't tried traveller, i figured since its the go-to space module id probably just use that. But, then i realized. How the FUCK do i handle Grappler combat? Does traveller have any rules mecha combat which i can just adapt to account for Grapplers? Will i need to find an entire other Mecha system and steal parts of it? Does /tg/ know of any systems that would have this covered? Or, am i just boned and im going to need to spend alot of time trying to get Grappler combat balanced and fine tuned?

D&D Alchemist

I'm going to play my first game of D&D this weekend, and I haven't read the rulebook in years, but my DM and I got the idea of a explosives based alchemist. That also heals the party with a touch of Detect Evil. Any ideas on how that would work? We're playing a mish-mash of D&DA to 3.5.

Is orbital bombardment overpowered? I know there's only a low chance for it to hit the thing it's aimed at but in larger point games, no matter where you scatter you hit something. It's not really a weapon as such, but a way to simply delete a large chunk of the opponent's points before the game actually begins. >IRL Example: 2 Chapter masters on one side simply removed fateweaver (300 pts) and a fair amount of pink horrors, WITH ABSOLUTELY NO SKILL INVOLVED IN THE SLIGHTEST. This has been every single game for weeks now. >lol anon I just won on turn one before you got a go! fuck.

Going to be trying my hand at sculpting with green stuff for the first time. I've sculpted before and have always been pretty good artistically, but was wondering if there are any tips/tricks/guides /tg/ knows and might be willing to share. Cheers.

So say you wanted to blow up a town, city, county, country, continent, planet, or solar system in a game. Describe how you would do it in your game? (methods for mass destruction being relative).

CYOA: Saiyan Story-Installment #109 of a Quest by Somnius

>What is This? Saiyan Story is a series of Choose Your Own Adventure threads in which you play the part of a Saiyan Warrior. >Stats (Bardock) Power Level: 42,000,000 Health: Excellent Ki: 100% >Recap After your date with Onia, you decided to go to Huhn-tresh's world and inform her of your father's passing. She was saddned to hear it, but glad that he died a warrior's death and happy to hear that he would be wished back. You asked her if you could forge your energy weapon, and she agreed. You told her you wished to gather the materials yourself, and so she escorted you to a cave to the North; telling you to seek out a black rock in the back of the cave. Heading in and using energy to light your way, you encountered an old foe; Cooler. He proved far too powerful for you to defeat and seemingly killed you. However, you awoke in the cave sometime later, took a rock, and found Huhn-tresh. The two of you talked for a while before you asked her to take you to get the next bit of material. You were told this would take a long trip, so you returned to Earth to tell your mother and Onia what you were doing. Upon returning to Huhn-tresh's world, the two of you set off to collect paste from an Esseh plant. The event occurred with no incident, and the two of you returned to her village. There, you retrieved the metal from the rock you collected and headed west to a massive volcano. Within its flames, you forged your weapon; an odachi. You tested it, and found it to have incredible power. After talking with Huhn-tresh, you decided to visit her village for a little while. She was happy to have you as a guest, and she told you a bit about her people upon reaching the village.

Hey tg, question time. Would a deathwatch spell in pathfinder overcome any stealth roll?
