World-building thread, go! Each post should introduce something new or embellish on something else. Nothing that contradicts earlier points unless they can be reconciled together well Or we decide it's better, which might shit the thread up for a while I'll start. The Uskiut Republic has recently declared war against the confederacy of city-states headed by Gom Burim over an ancient and apocryphal wrongdoing. The great beast Nghara has recently emerged from the southern ocean, covered in strange weeping sores. The Oscalum Mines of the Seventh Great Kingdom of Erias have started to run dry, spelling trouble for the highly Oscalum-dependant economy of the nation.

/tg/ can you recommend me some fast, simple to learn games? I'm looking for small easy to learn games that could be played while waiting for a late player to show up, or in the down time in the main game when people want to take a breather, or when someone bails at the last minute and I need to think of something else to do so we can still have a game night.

Hello, and welcome to CivThread, Act 16: Facelift 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. A note: New players can start in The Other World, but it's tough over there. Like, hardmode tough. 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. And now, a huge word of thanks to Bazrael, the man responsible for the shiny new map. Seriously, thanks man. Now, Lets get Rollin'!

Genre blender

One typically gets a feel for a setting or campaign when you throw out the general flavor of the setting such as Steam Punk or Diesel or something like that. I propose we take a picture, take three of our favorite genre types and come up with a campaign based around it. pic related Raygun Gothic + Noir + Diesel Punk: The PCs are invesitgators of various talents working for the Iverson Private Detective and Protection Agency. They are hired by a rather excentric scholar who is questing for the remains of the lost and fabled "Godless Titan", an omnious nick name given to one of the first Solar class vessels set as a luxury vessel and miniture city for the Billionaire Entrepenuer who sought to promote peace through industry.

>Martial Art's Highschool Quest 0: The Prologue You are 14 years old and youngest of 5 in a rather well known family who's tickets to fame are A: A martial art's pedigree, B:Being good at it and C: Actually enjoying fighting... All of them except you. Yes you the black sheep, the runt, the "normal" one of the family much to the chagrin of the rest of your Kinfolk. It's gotten to the point where you suspect your own family is working activley and behind the scenes to get you into situations rather it was in school or in public where you had the choice of fight, flight or taking it like a bitch as well as heated arguments with your family about your choice of hobbies and or trying to have a normal social life. Speaking of, what ARE you into? Since you divert most of your energy away from training to refine your skills and combat senses, and choose something more productive and in your personal opinion something less capable of inflicting massive amounts of collateral damage.

Last time on Flashpoint quest. Jericho returns home, at least as much of home as he can call it. Its a safe house set up by th...its a safe house set up by those guys on the phone. Yeah, you know their name, you remember now, Aquanatics, that was the group. Something to...hn. It doesn't matter really you have a nice warm room to lay down in, the potentially deadly information in your pocket burning there, ready to be dropped off at the drop point and sold. But something doesn't sit right with you at all, not at all. Why did you forget who you where working for, and that voice, was it a her or a him? Did you know that ones name too? “Fuck, this is an agonising headache.” you blurt out, slamming the door behind you as you enter the safe house. The sound of something scattering to the ground and a frightened yelp echoes out throughout the safe house “TAKE ALL THE MONEY! Just don't kill me!” calls someone loudly from the kitchen. >1. cheer yourself up with a little mischief? >2. Pol's too jumpy better make sure he knows its you. >3. writin

Worldbuilding: Victoriana-era Steampunk World Under Invasion

Worldbuilding: Victoriana-era... 17 posts and 5 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I've heard stories of /tg/ loving the world-building, of some of the amazing ideas that have spawned from these threads. Stories of lore, stories of promotions, all sorts of stuff. So, in those veins, I was hoping you elegen/tg/entlement could help me devise believable answers to some questions about a world/setting I would like to build: I would like to devise a steampunk setting, set around something you'd expect in a Vitoriana game. However, I was thinking, a rogue planetoid/asteroid/meteorite slams into/through the moon and into the planet. Not only does this alter the orbit, but an organism on the rogue object infested the moon, terraforming it into something habitable. The setting, a few years (decade? more?) after the Impact, the alien beasts traverse from the moon to earth in an invasion on a consistent basis (I was thinking every full moon or something). So, a couple things I was thinking. Military tech like weapons, armor, and defensive structures would advance. Underground living would become common. Anti-air defenses would crop up in cities. So, tl;dr we get to my questions: 1) Could a planetoid crack/break/damage the moon enough to be seen from Earth without causing too much damage to the orbit of the moon short term? 2) Could said rogue object hit the Earth somewhere on the planet that would cause changes to the rotation/tilt? 2) If so, what changes could be caused, and where could it hit so that it would be noticed by a majority of 'civilized lands' without wrecking everyone's day too badly. 3) How long should there be between Impact Day and the start of the setting? 4) How would the alien beings attack the planet? I was thinking alien drop-pod type things that slam into the ground, break down into a sludge, filling the crater. From this small beasts crawl free and find resources to add to the pit(s) to feed larger organisms. Also, any pics you got for inspiration, please share. Thank you.

New to D&D, trying to make a character in 3.5

New to D&D, trying to make... 4 posts and 1 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I am new to RP and need help making a character for my next campaign. I have been wanting to get into pen and paper role playing for a very long time, but had trouble finding groups and getting into them for various reasons. I finally got into one a few weeks ago. They set me up with a LG dwarfen defender/fighter and I jumped in in the middle of things. Great fun. But being late to the game the campaign is ending and we are setting new characters. Trouble is I am now making my own character while not really knowing things all too well only having played a handful of sessions. See, while the dwarf was fun enough I want to try my hands on something a little more challenging and versatile with more options than simply standing in the way of enemies and hitting them with my hammer (which I did quite well I might add, took more hits than the rest of the group together). What I always wanted to play is a wizard. I love magic. Always magic class when playing PC games. But PC games often don't offer much flexibility and opportunity to use your powers creatively. So I have long wanted to play a wizard in pen and paper setting. The issue here is that we are starting at level 10, and while I may want something more challenging I also have to know my limits and not force the rest of the group to always wait around while I try to figure out what spells I can use and so on. Am I worrying to much about the this? How challenging is a 10 level wizard to set up and play? Wizard is what I really want to play, but not so much as to ruin it for the rest of the group. Also, there is one rolling up a sorceress (a blood based one I think?) so how useful would a wizard be as a addition to the group?

Custom "Cheat-Sheet" Cards for Warhammer?

Custom "Cheat-Sheet"... 6 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hey /tg/ I am fairly new to Warhammer Fantasy, and wrapping my head around these rules are proving to be too difficult at first. So I thought of a simpler way of getting to know the rules. What would be the easiest way to make these types of cards? I tried using MTG Cardsmith, but it's too limited - I would prefer having statblocks on top of any abilities/equipment, as well as their effects. I realize I'll probably have to limit the information, but this just seems like the best solution, short of having to open the book every minute to check a rule. I am mostly going for this sort of card type, because I have almost 500 cardsleeves of this size, from my old Pokemon Card collection, and it would fit in well with my Spell Cards as well. Has anyone else done this, and how did you do it? Or do any of you have any good advice on how to do this the easiest? I'm at the point where I feel I would even need to have a card for each type of unit (Saurus Warriors, Skink Skirmishers, etc - Yeah, Lizardmen player here). Note: I use Battlescribe, but the printed army list isn't good for anything other than the list itself - I'd rather be able to print out cards that specifically explain what each unit can actually do.

Given the standard concentration of adventurer parties that pick on Lizardfolk Loyalists, how should an ancient and soon-to-be-reactivated Lizardfolk temple in a deep forest be protected? Beyond a few patrols scouting the surroundings and a couple of Lizardfolk clerics with a small garrison of Lizardfolk warriors in the temple that respond to trouble? thanks

Setting the chase

Setting the chase 6 posts and 3 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Having successfully escaped the enchanted castle and saved the young baron, my party has returned to the not-enchanted-during-the-day castle to find a guard murdered and the princess has disappeared. There is also a trail of blood leading into the woods, a known hangout spot of fairies, wild animals, and portals into feywild. What can I do to make a three encounter chase that will last an hour? So far most of my ideas are more window dressing than actual events (ie, they come across a tiny castle. 'your princess is in another castle!') Help me /tg/, you're my only hope.
