ITT: Magic and linguistics:... 40 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
ITT: Magic and linguistics: the "language of magic" Help me out, /tg/. I'm trying to define some general things for a novel. I'm a linguist by trade so I'd like to explore this aspect in particular. To cast a spell, you often need a verbal component. A wizard must pronounce some words in a given weird language, add the other necessary components, and magic happens. Is language one of the factors that give power to the spell (so actually knowing the language and how to make sentences becomes essential), or are the words a mere catalyst, and the power comes from elsewhere? (the caster's mind, leylines, or what have you)? And if so, why not use a current, commonly spoken language instead of dead gobbledygook? How would you go about it? Personally I'm more inclined to go with the former, but I can't come up with a way to explain how the language gives power to the spells that doesn't sound retarded.

Dark Heresy Beta

So, I totally skipped the whole beta thing for the upcoming Dark Heresy 2nd edition, but I found a PDF and I really liked what I saw. But I heard they basically scrapped the version I found and redid, so I'm just wondering: what are people's thoughts on it? What are the changes they made?

Anybody have any experience with this, or GURPS in general? I've never used GURPS before. What would I need to play this? Is it any good?

Hey /tg/, I was looking for a rules-light superhero P&P to get a few friends interested in gaming again. Something easier than 3.5 D&D, with enough crunch to handle the superhero genre. Any suggestions?

What cloudspace storage /t/g uses for storing their PDFs? I must find a new place for 50+ not-so-legal sourcebooks in PDF format. I need a place that: - is free - is fast enough to not die from an old age during sending that Gbs - has online PDF viewer - has no problem with illegal stuff Mediafire would be ok, but 50Gbs not enough...

Anyone in Brisbane, Australia want to play Rifts with me AFK? I'll GM if I can get enough players. Got a whole story arc ready and waiting to go!

I'm just started a pathfinder campaign and the DM picked up the 'Ultimate Campaign' sourcebook. He introduced downtime into the sessions. My character concept is a Wizard who makes money on the side by forging documents, me and the rogues player got to talking and we want to set up a criminal empire, he'll be the face, I'll be the brains, I already plan on creating our own 'thieves cant' (thank you +11 to linguistics) but I'm wondering if you smar/tg/uys can recommend any reading materials to help me out on this endevour.

Muv Luv Royal Quest

Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Muv%20Luv%20Royal%20Quest Twitter: @ReverseChomp Pastebin: http://pastebin.com/vW6dDi1u ------ You are Flying officer Julian Reber of the Royal Air Force. You joined the RAF to fight the BETA, aliens who dominate the Eurasian continent and who threaten to exterminate human civilization. You've spent the last few months fighting, winning and surviving, with only a few short breaks in between the missions and sudden emergencies. Today is one such break. You've just finished sorting out the paperwork for your Tornado's routine maintenance and projected fuel and ammunition expenditure, but as much as you'd like to slack off and do nothing, your schedule isn't that convenient. You get off your uncomfortable military-issue chair and stretch your muscles to ease the cramps. Group captain Hall still hasn't found any new officers to reform Bedivere squadron, and as far as you know, he still wants to fast track Knight's career. Knight's a good operator, but she still needs to build her confidence and you're not sure how she'd perform out on the field. She wasn't supposed to be personally participate in a combat mission at least until you received a Tornado, but the loss of Bedivere squadron made things complicated. You could take the rest of your time off to program and test a dedicated tactnet program Knight could use from your Tornado. There's also the issue of the BETA reactor components you salvaged. Mary said they would be ready for more in-depth analysis soon, but you're one of the most talented engineers in the base, so she'll probably need your help. You could check up on her and see if she's ready to get to work on G-element production, the power plant or the computer unit. This would probably accelerate her pet project, the ZEF-19 Excalibur. You'd also need Mary's help for Knight's tacnet, so you can only pick one or the other. >(cont.)

Twitch played Pokemon

Twitch played Pokemon 0 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Has this been discussed at all? What does 4chan think of the twitch plays pokemon emulator going on? To explain - someone hooked up an emulator for original pokemon to the chat. each person can put in one command every 30 seconds, either up, down, left, right, a, b, or start. Each command will be carried out. This was not exected to get far. We have approached and taken out most of the junior trainers in the 4th gym. Somehow people have been surprisingly productive, minus the 7 hours we ended up stuck in a corner and kept jumping down a ledge. Come join? What're your thoughts? Silly and unproductive? oddly addictive? stupid and will fail? Curious what you guys thought.

Quest: Into the Aether Chapter 15

Quest: Into the Aether Chapter... 168 posts and 3 image replies omitted. Click to view.
You are Logan Drey. When you left Earth about a week ago, it was on the verge of total domination by a rogue AI. You alone seem to have been spared by fate. After a desperate gambit to escape certain death, you met a strange creature in armor. When you accepted the shield this creature offered you, it whisked you off to parts unknown. Now you’re a wanderer, the Unchosen Void Knight. Last night’s festival was a fun time. You got to hear the different Veeka sing and watch them dance, you even did some dancing yourself. And then you and Parin necked for a bit, among other things… You’re not quite certain how you feel about this… Previous threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Into%20the%20Aether%20Quest, QM twitter: https://twitter.com/QM_Dizzy Current OP: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5mSFNDtSwrE

Alright /tg/, what are your favorite moments in a campaign you've played? >Playing Iron Kingdoms game >Rocking trollkin fell caller/man at arms >Being chased by mercenaries near forested area >Come to a clearing with a large tower DM: "Okay, everyone get into position." >Set up hidden in bunch of trees. >Iosan Ranger/Alchemist hides in trees on other side of path DM: "You hear the sound of a chainsaw reving up, and thunderous footsteps" >ohshitwarjack.jpg >Warjack pops out between Iosan and me, flanked by two more mercenaries >Iosan jumps on back of the Warjack, and throws acid grenade down it's smokestack >fuckyeah.png >Jumps off, but can't get to cover >Mercenaries open fire, wounding Iosan PC DM: "Okay Anon, what're you gonna do?" "... I tear a tree out of the ground." DM: "Huh?" "I tear a tree out of the ground" >Roll successful DM: "What now?" "I throw the tree at the Warjack." >Nail the roll >From over the treeline, a large oak tree sails overhead, crashing into the Warjack >Warjack falls over, right on top of mercenaries DM: "The Warjack, it's boiler corroding away from acid, falls atop its escort, crushing them both. It sputters twice before falling silent." >mfw I saved a PC and took out a Warjack with a tree. DM probably fudged it to let me do this, but it was too funny to not happen.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8SoL0yMGik&feature=share So guys. The whole video talks about how she loves Dungeons and Dragons. But then you get hit with this: As we finish this battle, and we slay the dragon and look around her lair for loot like gold and magic items, I look around this room at all these fucking nerds and their fucking dice and their primarily windows-based computers and their Doritos and Mountain Dew Everything here is disgusting but you... Dungeons and Dragons (chorus).. and into my bed, where we could have sex Dungeons and Dragons Don't believe me, watch the fucking video.

What is the best Space themed system to use? I'd like something with multiple races, focus on ship improvement, and exploration. I'd like to do something with elements of Mass Effect, Star Trek, Treasure Planet, Cowboy Bebop, Alien, and a dash of Star Wars. I'd prefer not to use GURPS, I just don't like that system. I've mainly used Pathfinder and 3.5, but I've dabbled with FATAL and Savage worlds which I'm not too fond of either.

Evil Precure Quest 43

[x]Surprise treat. You are Masako Ishikuno, otherwise known as Mirror Blade. Your clone, Red as you like calling her, has been busy for the better part of the evening working on sensing spells around the sensible parts of the school. You left her under Amano's care while you went to get her a surprise at a convenience store thats outside school grounds. The have some amazing treats there and they're cheap too, deliciously sweet treats. Its surprisingly quiet around here given how much noise the festival did just a few hours ago. All of the students are probably tired and don't feel like being out and everyone else involved must have felt that way. When you get to the store it's thankfully empty and theres lots of of those chocolate covered chocolate popscicles you absofuckinglutely love and since Red's body is the same as yours she'd probably agree. You buy four of them and something strawberry flavored for Amano as she asked you. You gladly pay the bored-looking man at the counter and take off back to the school. Unfortunately you're going to have to use the main gate...or abuse your powers and make your way and jump over the outer wall. You'll decide later, its a few blocks to the outer wall anyways. As you reach the wall and begin pondering if you're going to jump over it you suddenly get the extremely uneasy feeling that someone is watching you. You're not sure if its your paranoia or something else but you put your guard up in case its Marcus you feel. You gulp, the nice quiet streets suddenly feel more desolate and dangerous. []Run towards the main gate, the others should be there by now. []Jump the wall, you don't have time to spare. []Something else (Writein)

I'm looking to make a force entirely out of diverse Genestealer hybrids of all kinds of races, I'm asking for conversion, and rules ideas, also aside from the basic races what sort of subtle easter egg races could I mix in?
