Bad Spells/effects?

How about we have a bad spell/ item that turns out to be useful thread? Example being the torch of darkness, which extinguishes any fire within 5' or itself.

Best tool for creating random world maps, to help players visualize the game world. Looking for something easier to use than going into dwarf fort, generating a random world with the history mode or whatever, exporting a bunch of shit, and then using some backwards gimp plugin to make a world map with all of that. It's a hassle and I don't even understand half of it or play dwarf fortress.

Hello, and welcome to CivThread, Act 9: Brace YourShelves edition. If you're a regular, get in here! If you're new, you're welcome too. The Golden Rules: 1: Making up fun nonsense? Please do! Making up total bullshit? Please don't. 2: Facilitate funtimes for all. Getting fluffy with your posts and getting in character is nice and might add to Rule Two, but if you don't wanna, I'm not gonna penalize you. I'm going to wait around thirty minutes or so after this post, to allow everyone who wants to join do so. Then the game proper will begin. Oh, and here's some tags so people can filter this out: Civ, Nation Builder, NationBuilder. There you go, people who don't like this kind of stuff. Now, Lets get Rollin'!

So I need some help brain storming some way for my evil character to access a god in order to attempt to kill it. A basic portal seems a bit plain and mundane... But it is time tested and effective. Whatever it is I'm thinking it is composed of several different parts that will take several years to amass. FYI the god he wishes to overthrow is a god of Tyranny and Corruption

SyFy Movies: The Game

SyFy Movies: The Game 19 posts and 1 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I'm going to run a series of games where several stock characters go through a variety of unrelated SyFy Movie apocalypses (giant albino spiders with super poison that live underground and are released via earthquake like Arachnoquake, a sudden takeover by insects that turn people into evil mantises like in Infestation, etc). Each one will be unrelated to the last, and the characters will be more akin to actors. There will always be one important stat that helps avoid capture (like "Not Screaming"), and there will be a single female that motivates the whole shebang by way of love interest. Any advice?

Hey /tg/, as you may or not... 27 posts and 8 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hey /tg/, as you may or not know, the myths and legends of the Hittites, Aryans, Armenians, Germanics, Scythians, Greeks, Slavs, Celts, etc. all derive from the same now entirely forgotten corpus of myth & legend: Proto-Indo-European mythology. So I thought to myself, what if we filled in the blanks? Y'know making up myths that'd explain the origin of all the Indo-European myths. How about it? The setting would grow along with the telling. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proto-Indo-European_religion#Mythology
Why in modern do people run 4... 5 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Why in modern do people run 4 mana leaks instead of 4 rune snags? Sure the first one requires them to pay 1 less mana. But a turn 2 or 3 rune snag will usually counter something they cant afford to pay for, then after that each one is better than a mana leak. Especially when you're probably also running paths giving them mana, I see mana leak become useless pretty quickly. The only case I could see runesnag not being better is if you're running snapcasters because then if you exile it there's less in the yard, but if you're running snaps then you probably have other things you could snap that would be better, like snapping a lightning helix or lb or electrolyze or if you have mana even a cryptic, or a path if you're okay with giving them more mana and need to.

How do you handle followers in your games, /tg/? My party recently finished up their first major adventure, and while they unfortunately lost a player character, one of the party picked up leadership, and now has a Kobold follower. I don't know exactly how to handle it though. Do I as the DM control him, and just let the party members order him around? Or do I just give complete control over to the person he's following, and do their dialogue if necessary?

Hive Cities

Hive Cities 19 posts and 1 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Sup /tg/. I want to create a set of tables for a killteam campaign. Technically speaking I will use cardboard based stuff from WorldWorks games for the scenery. Now I have a few table ideas matching the missions I had. The idea of the whole campaign is a team of Necrons wanting to disrupt order in the city to take it easily and the IG are to stop them So I will need a lot of scenery to make the hive city credible. I have already a lot of things figured, but still a lot of questions. > is there personal cars in hive cities? If yes is there a STC model ? > same question for buses and trains > homeless people living in tents, yes or no ? > basketball field, yes or no? Also hive city general I guess.

Tell me /tg/ What's the point of 2x Toughness = Instant Death, when nearly everything that has more than one wound has Eternal Warrior or some form of instant death ignore?

WFRP 3 0 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I've recently signed up to play in a 3rd ed WFRP campaign. My initial experience suggests to me that the entire point of the game seems to be to get me to buy crappy special dice and character sets from GW, but the rest of the group seem to love the rules set. Or: What does 3rd do well, what shouldn't I do and how can I avoid pointless character death?

40k Custom Faction Thread

Hey /tg/ Maybe I'm not looking hard enough but I never see any threads about custom chapters/legions/warbands/hive fleets et cetera. Let's have one. I've got an Ork Warband right now called the Twin Sunz. They're a desert raiding warband that is unique in that they have two warbosses that tolerate each other enough to sorta work together. One focuses on Choppy (Bebop) the other on Shooty (Rokkstedy). It's a pretty fun concept to play around with. What's yours /tg/? Do they have special quirks, rules, history?

How mnay Hormogaunts is enough / Tyarnid general?

How mnay Hormogaunts is enough... 16 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I'm putting together a Tyranid army. So I realize I have 36 Hormagaunts, with another 8 in box, from those old dual Term/Horm box sets. I have like 80 termagants from Battle for Macragge with the basic weapon and like 48 Genestealers, also from Battle for Macragge. I realize I have waaaay too many Genestealers, and I have like three more boxes of them, cuz a local store was doing a 50% off going out of business sale a year or two ago. So... how many Hormagaunts do I really need? In a 2500 pt army? With Genestealers, you don't need that many - just a big squad of 14 led by a Broodlord, right? I'm trying to track down a Space Hulk Broodlord. Wirth maybe two more 6-9 man squads for backup? I think I have like three of the ancient battleforce that came with a Carnifex stashed away, so like three or four more Carnifexes, more foot sloggers and fuck me, more genestealers I think I have like four Carnifexes. Best loadout for them? I don't have a Hive Tyrant. I have some Biovored and Zoanthropes but I don't know where they are. I want to track down the old 40K3 models. Clearly Pyrovores suck and I don't want the new Venomthrope because he so prone to breaking. I want a foot slogger army, maybe a Carnifex army. I'm going to be buying a home-made harpy off a guy and a homemade Haruspex off a friend soon. I want to make a Swarmlord with custom boneswords made out of plasticard, like everyone was doing back in the day. Thoughts?
