Bretonnia thread. Topic of the day: Damsels. Where do they come from, how are they trained, and what do they really do. I have read a bit about them but it is fairly basic, vague stuff.

Just something fun, with more sandbox roleplaying, and lots of random encounters, loot, and challenges. But which edition is better at crawls/hack n' slash? 4e seems like the appropriate one with people saying it feels like an mmo. However, AD&D was built on the premise of such games and polished the original box set D&D to actually make some damn sense and be easy for the DM to alter at will. And Pathfinder is just an upgrade to 3.5 which gives players a lot more options.

So i am running an Elder Evils campaign that will culminate in the Party fighting Pandorym. I have some ideas that i believe will work out nicely and the game is progressing apace albeit they are only level 3 so far. Still more ideas and inspiration is always nice so if anyone have suggestions for spicing up the journey to defeat the godslaying Elder Evil please do so. Also if anyone have used Pandorym i would like to know if they have encountered any particular weaknesses or exploitable loopholes of his. I know of the Annulus and that will not exist in the Campaign. My group have access to 3.5 material if they want to use it (within reason) but primarily use Pathfinder.

Star Wars d20

Star Wars d20 11 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Okay I have no idea how this is going to go down, so I just want to say that if I'm wrong be gentle. I propose that Star Wars d20 (the old one, the 3.5 version) is perhaps the best-balanced d20 system. I am going to list several points supporting this: 1) Defense bonus by class. This is important because it removes D&D 3.5's stupid lack of AC equivalency and everyone always hitting. Or at least helps with it. Is it slightly less realistic? Maybe. I never saw how more experience should not equal better at dodging attacks. 2) VP/WP. Helped with visualizing HP, but more important, removed the "Don't move or I'll shoot!" "Go ahead I have 75 hp" crap. 3) No wizards. Obviously this is the main balance complaint in 3.5. I actually think the way 4e does wizards, with some spells being usable as attacks infinite times per day, some usable once per battle (or once per hour), and some once per day, is superior to even manapoints systems, but then that's an argument for a different thread. Now, it doesn't fix the lack of feat equivalency (a feat point system, or, better yet, character point type thing for buying skills and feats, would be better, but is kind of complicated. The way next is doing feats is actually decent, although I have the ret of the system so far). It doesn't fix everything, but I think Star Wars d20 is the best d20 system. Debate.

Savior Quest Chapter 4

Savior Quest Chapter 4 192 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
You are Arva, the Overlord of the tower in Strongwind. You gained this title after murdering the previous Overlord with your holy blade, The Savior. There have been some minor repairs to the tower and it now has a massive bathing facility and a war room. Eluria's chambers, which house the Black Gate, have also gotten an expansion. There are also a few new demons. With you there are... Elyva, a small demoness that has been summoned from another realm by... Elura, the tower's demonologist. She can summon and bind demons from other realms for a small price of souls or gold. Istur the tower's architect. He maintains the traps and can build new buildings. Nix, a demon with four arms and man eyes. Very strong and makes sure your demons are working efficiently.. And finally there's Krus, a once valiant knight that has had her soul ripped out and replaced by a demon. She and 3 other former knights, Dyf, Sersino, and Lurrie, are your spies in the land of Strongwind. Your current stock is 200 gold, 4 souls, 2 magical souls and 2 golden souls. You have rings that allow you to communicate with one of your minions and a pair of goggles that allow you to see souls and their quality. Also the bodies of the twins who you got the magic souls from in the first place.

Have you ever had to kill a party member, and become the most hated person in the group, /tg/? I had a session tonight where the team's rogue got taken over by an evil presence and began telling us of his plans etc, plot moving forward. Then he began moving forward with glowing hands at my weapon master, who decided to swing his greatsword in front of him, to "threaten" the rogue back. To which the DM did the asshole move of having the evil presence throwing himself forward at the sword instead, and being a weapon master I accidentally crit him and literally cleaved him in half. This was a mid-low magic setting with no Resurrection spells, so the guy's character was killed because of the DM and my character being strong. I am now the hated person in the group as the rogue had to roll up a new character and everything. Have you ever had a situation like this? Share stories.

anyone else love what FFG has done to WH40k Lore. I appreciate it more and don't view the various faction with a narrow view stereotypes anymore. Lots of things are open to interpretation and they aren't as strict with "Word of God" GW. Its actually possible to make out of the box Space Marine without someone saying; "that's heretical" or "That's not what the codex says". FFG has made me see techmarines beyond byborg marines who can fix stuff and are techy stereotype.

My group is playing in a loosely historical setting, circa 1220 or so. The crusades are going on, Europe is in an economic boom, the plague has yet to hit, and magic is real but rare. Also, Camelot never fell. My GM has turned to me for help in fleshing this out, because a) my character is the only British party member, and b) I know more than he does about King Arthur and associated legends. We've worked out that the points of divergence in this history are that Arthur and Morgan cut a truce, and Guinevere never cheated. As such, the Pendragons have the throne, but Mordred's descendants still have a place at the Round Table (and there's some resentment among them that feel they got screwed.) If an equivalent to the War of the Roses ends up happening, that's how it will start. Now, elegan/tg/entlemen and gentlewomen, I know there are those of you who are history and/or mythology buffs. What would England in the middle ages look like under the Pendragons rather than the Plantagenets?

Looking for a little GM advice. I'm a player in a Kingmaker campaign, I'm running a paladin and have (so far) built a bastion for my church. Within the next few campaign turns I'm probably going to be invaded by some heathens from the north, so I need an army. I want to recruit a fresh army of level 3 paladins. My fluff justification is that they trained in my academies (military and otherwise) and served the kingdom by helping to curb banditry and clear out monsters until I call the faithful to service. It's only going to be a medium force (100 level 3 paladins on horses) that will be kept in reserve at my cathedral after I build them. Basically my question is this: does it make sense for that number of paladins to congregate at a holy site (a miracle happened there) where a small city (with a population of around 6k) has grown? By RAW it is legal to get them together in only a month and I'm not limited by training or recruitment times, but I'm more interested in making sure it makes sense from an outside view. I've spent a lot of time and money making my city a center of worship and being my kingdoms general helps explain the martial bent its taken. Any thoughts or concerns about my plan or am I good to go?
