Homebrew race

Homebrew race 0 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I'm writing up some race lore for my work in progress RPG and I can't decide what kind of info to put on there. I have physical description, society, history, their religion, their views, and how others view them. I'm looking to have the short and sweet on each race. Is there anything I should add, or could drop? Also, post your homebrew races too.

Hey /tg/ in your homebrew worlds,what non-standard fantasy races do you give cities? I usually have cities of orcs, ratfolk, and avians (sentient birds). Is it also bad that all my humans tend to be Caucasoid? I just tend not to make black npcs and I don't want to risk weeaboo shit in my words.

Scion thread? Scion thread. So, /tg/, I hope someone can help me with this. I'm playing an Irish Scion who is the main powerhorse of the group, but not too big on Dexterity, because honestly, he's not that type of guy. We're just about to hit Demigod right now and I've looked around to find that Dodge DVs can get pretty surreal here. Any tips on how to hit enemies who basically dodge the shit out of everything without pumping up Epic Dexterity as well? >Inb4 Epic Manipulation

need help making a D&D session

need help making a D&D... 19 posts and 8 image replies omitted. Click to view.
i have a game coming up this Saturday that i will be DMing and i need Help, Ideas and Advice on what to do. how does /TG/ go about making their d&d sessions? in my game i have a dragonborn sorcerer who is a bitch but wishes to restore the honor of her "people", a dwarf artificer who wishes to be the merlin of alchemy and a warforged who is learning to be "human". i have thought about doing 3 battles for this session with the first being a fight with a catoblepas (what the hell is death cheese and deadeye butter?) the second being a bunch of goblins in a cave and no idea for a third. ANY IDEAS, ADVICE AND HELP WOULD BE A GOD SEND!!!!! the campaign is set in a bag of holding world (the end of this weeks session will have the players see a HUGE hand returning to the sky when the PCs exit the cave) and i want to drop hints that the world is not what it seems.

Looking for a good system to... 15 posts and 6 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Looking for a good system to run games in a fairyland style of place like Oz or Narnia or Wonderland: that sort of children's lit adventure feel. Not looking for something grimdark or overly combat focused, probably favoring things that are rules-light and more oriented towards players solving puzzles, with maybe a bit of combat to flavor things up a bit but not DnD level combat crunchy. I'll probably twist up the setting myself for my players but it'll probably be more along the level of The Hobbit or 1001 Nights as opposed to something like American McGee's Alice or something: still with that spark of wonder and light, not full of sin and insanity. Any suggestions?

I sorta ended up hoping GW will never release a Duke Sliscus mini. It would most likely be underwhelming even if okay. Like this here: it's good, it's nice, but it's not awesome and the Duke is awesome. So let's have a thread about how awesome the Duke is.

STUPID QUESTION THREAD: Too... 7 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
So yeah, stupid question thread. Let me start: 1. In 13th age you only get 10 levels - why so little ? Why the Epic tier only lasts two levels ? 2.Dungeons and Dragons 4e - Cursed magical items are identifiable the same way as the non-cursed items, i.e. during short rest - how to change that ? What mechanic do you use ?

Just look the map up

My fellow magos, I have but one simple question: What the feth happened on Beta Anphelion IV? Seriously, guys. They were just some rippers and gaunts. How does something so simple and easy go so wrong?

'sup /tg/. I must ask you. How did commerce used to work? Both in the Greek/Roman and Middle Ages era, please? Who traded at all? Was it all private merchants? Did people from [land] load a ship/mule with cheap local goods and sell them at inflated prices in [distant land] because it's exotic, even if something equivalent existed there? How common were pirates or highway robbers, really? Did traders completely ignore countries relationships, or did they patiently wait for some pact to be made, allowing trade? How did it change when the Roman Empire fell and barbarians took their place? Did it get better again when tribes started settling for good, and even better again when the bigger kingdoms started to appear? (I'm assuming international trade turned to shit when random barbarians dropped by and towns "changed countries" every few days, but maybe I'm wrong.) Pic sorta related, I guess. Don't have anything trade related.

Ever have communication problems with your players? >military game PCs must deal with an incompetent lieutenant that has gotten a few of them killed. >one of them balls up and talks to the captain who understands their concerns but cant really do anything about it (military politics). >that night the PC who talked about it is approached by the captain alone. The faint smell of booze is on him. >They talk for awhile about the lieutenant, sometimes asking the PC what he would do during the situations where the LT fucked up. Conversation is polite but a bit creepy. >Captain slips the player something and leaves. >player sees its a grenade. >freaks out and throws it ducking for cover because I did not mention the pin was still in it.

Guildball?

Guildball? 13 posts and 4 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Am I the only one who thinks the miniatures of Guildball, the medieval football/soccer miniature game an ongoing KS are being wasted on the fact that its a game based on football/soccer? I dunno so far it looks like the miniatures themselves have "very little to do" with football/soccer. Many of the art and minis are armed with weapons and are in poses that look nothing like the average football/soccer player, unlike other fantasy/sci fi sport games like Bloodbowl or Dreadball. Honestly it looks like these people are trying to make a minis game, but for some reason forced on a "sport element" to be more appealing (which has a directly opposite reaction from me). Maybe its just me, but I rather have these minis as stand alone medieval/fantasy militia/adventurers/townsfolk/mercenaries. Some of these guys look perfect for games like Mordhiem or your average fantasy rpg. Now of course nothing is stopping me from getting the minis for my own purposes, but I just think that their KS might be a lot more popular if it wasnt for the fact the game was a fantasy sports game. Maybe its just me though

I hate to post a request but /r/ yielded nothing and searching was useless. I'm using CBLoader for the 4e character builder and although I have a fair amount of the books manually updated in there (Dark Sun, Player Essentials: Neverwinter, HoS, HoFK, HoFL) but I wanted to use some of the things from Heroes of the Feywild and I can't find the partfiles anywhere. Could someone help me with this please? I know this isn't a board for requests but I saw a thread by someone who wanted the Dark Sun part files so I was hoping someone would have the HotF ones. Thank you if you can help me.
