Excuse me, fellow Commissar, but how do the Chaos Legions maintain enough discipline to fight us? We have our own magnificent presence, of course, to motivate the men forward, but the Chaos Legions don't.

Khorne Nurgle Slaanesh Tzeentch You have the ability to kill one of these four. Permanently dispersing said god into randomized background energy in the warp. All associated daemons will similarly disintegrate, all powers, corruption and similar upon their mortal followers will end. Their followers might try to worship said god afterwards but it will be of no use. Choose wisely.

So, I had an idea for a campaing that I eventually would (or wouldn`t) run and want to share it with /tg Imagine the typical medieval setting of Not-Earth. The history advances. The woodland elf savages carve their own empire of Not-HRE, embracing petty politics and fine arts instead of hunting and tree-hugging. Dwarves are few in number and occupy mountain ranges and rocky coasts of Not-Europe. Their love for engineering and cutting elven wood spawned majectic ships, true leviathans, braving the seas. Tradesmen and mercenaries are abundant in dwarven city-states, bringing both wealth and honor to ancient, traditionalistic kingdoms of the north. Orcs go from constrantly warring hordes of nomads to states of shrewd merchants, selling exotic goods and finely-crafted weapons. Less fortunate tribes travel the world as hired blades, assasins and performance artists. Often simultaneously. Humans settle almost everywhere. Ambitious kings, constant warfare and best agriculture. One year the orcs siege the local lord and next year they`re buying fresh grain for cattle. Elves calling humans primitives, while enjoying human-grown olives. And the ongoing feud of dwarven spirit drinks, elven ales and human wines. Magic? Yes, plenty of. Restless dead, magic-conjured storms, deadly curses. The thing is - the effect of mundane magic is almost never constant. While a novice can make an enchancement that lasts for several hours, master can a week or two, tops. The ways to avoid it - dealing with or binding the otherwordly spirits (often by creating the artifact), divine influence and lovecraft-tier forbidden stuff. Mages are common, but most have narrow talents like "throw fire" or "manipulate thoughts". Gods? Maybe. The worshippers can suddenly have their prayers answered and can even meet the avatars. Worshippers of other gods claim that it is simple magic of belief and lies of spirits. Almost everyone has their own pantheon. Comment too long, will continue in next post.

ITT, RL people who would make good CoC investigators. Mine is Yuri Knorosov. Genius student, played the violin, fought WWII in the soviet army, and found a rare book on Mayas in Berlin, which sparked his desire to study this matter. Years laters, he had translated a good chunk of the Mayan Alphabet and allowed the translation of the Mayan Codices. Also he had a cat.

You are Sireyi Valyenya, 22 years old; you are a Baroness, and you have lands on the border of the kingdom of Dornmer.

The lambs and calves should be running and playing in the fields and the cries of hungry baby birds wanting to be fed should greet you upon waking. But this year, that’s not happening. This winter has been particularly harsh and long, refusing to give up its cold grip on Dornmer and the surrounding Kingdoms. The Tribal Lands are also under a thick blanket of snow – Wegenthal and his clan are doing fine, but the orcs and beastmen have already started to resort to cannibalism to survive. Thanks to prudent planning, your realm had stored plenty of food and you made it through the winter comfortably, but now even your well-stocked storehouses are running low, and the ordinary people of your realm are asking for help. The only part of your realm where life is thriving is around the Wellspring of Velya – grass shoots push through the snow and young calves stubbornly survive even the coldest nights. Everywhere else your realm is suffering though – if you don’t do something you’ll lose a lot of people.

I thought some DMs might find this usefull. On a related note, while thumbing through the Monster Manual I noted several unrelated monsters that owe their existence to a specific Demon Lord. Aside from the usuals like Minotaurs (Baphomet) and Gnolls (Yeenoghu); Ghouls are tied exclusively to Orcus now, Demogorgon is responsible for Chimeras, Ettins, and Merrows, while Graz'zt created Jackleweres, Lamias, and apparently fathered the bulk of Cambions. I wonder how many more monster's are gonna have abyssal origins?

Fantastical Civilizations

23 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Despite the image, THIS IS NOT A CYOA THREAD. This is a thread for the discussion of what these civilizations would look like if those threads actually ever got anywhere. So what do your elves, dwarves, orcs, minotaurs, naga, centaurs, harpies, myceanea, slimes, insects, arachni, felinids, ursines, dragonlings, vanara, bullywugs, tengu, kobolds, crystalids, aquatics, giants, orges, lizardfolk, gnomes, celestials ect. any sentient fantasy species, eat? I don't mean in general. I mean imagine they were the dominant species in a civilized land. They have chefs, they have tailors, they have novelties. Don't restrict yourself to the image, the profiles are too crude really. Use your imagination and see how they'd expand. Would the traditionally land based species start fishing & sailing? What would their agriculture consist of given their desired environment? What's the diet? What are the delicacies? What are the general styles of clothes? What's the fashion? What are the sports? What are the spectacles? In fact, what's the politics? What's the opposition? Go crazy /tg/ this is a general imagination thread. World build if you like, but really get thinking about it. Remember, this isn't a CYOA or Quest, this is a discussion & ideas thread,

Mana Weaving

305 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
All right, /tg/ I see people who mana weave from time to time in MTG. I always feel the need to say that the act of mana weaving is illegal and it stacks your deck. To which, I usually get the reply "But I shuffle afterwords so I'm not deck stacking" And then I'll say "But they why mana weave anyways?" "So I don't get mana screwed and my lands are distributed evenly." I feel like I'm the one who is missing something here. I get so confused when I have conversations like that. The act of making your mana even distributed is illegal is it now? Can I get a possible judge to answer this question if there is one on this board?

Hey, all. I've heard good things about Burning Wheel and become interested in the product. Now, I have nothing against purchasing the books. But, I noticed that there don't seem to be any files (at least that I can find) of the new books. Before I commit to the purchase, I'd like to hear some opinions or at least be able to peruse through the books a bit. What have you experiences with it been like, /tg/?

What is /tg/'s opinion of Iron Kingdoms? Is it worth organizing a long term campaign with instead of, say, D&D 5e?

Natural Selection

57 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Do you ever have natural selection in your games? Do you ever play games where one species has a clear advantage to the others? Where natural selection is actually taking effect and these superior motherfuckers (not necessarily elves) are the dominant species of the realm? Do you ever play a game where you are not one of the dominant species? How would your games look if natural selection was killing (or at least subduing) the lesser species?
