Hey /tg/, it's my turn to DM again, and I realized something as I was worldbuilding; I just don't care about it. For the last campaign I made, I put my heart and soul into it. Every bit of story, every hunk of loot, and every combat had a little bit of love in it. Hell, I even wrote full page bios for some of the more important characters in the world - even the ones that the PCs weren't all that likely to meet - just so I could get a better feel for what the world was like. But this time around, I just can't bring myself to do it. I'll start up a section for the town I want the players to start in, and I just don't give a shit. I'm just going through the motions. So my question to you is this, elegan/tg/entlemen - What can I do to get out of this slump? Has anyone else gone through this kind of burnout? Any worldbuilding exercises to bring my heart back in it?

Sup, fa/tg/uys? I'm trying to break into modern with a decent collection of standard cards. I also have a set of Arid Mesa's. I was thinking R/W burn similar to the standard deck, only with Rift bolt, Lightning bolt, Lava Spike, Goblin Guide, Path to Exile, Lightning Helix, and Vexing Devil. What else in modern would I be looking at to play? Is burn even good enough for modern?

Fantasy to Cowboys

Fantasy to Cowboys 10 posts and 1 image replies omitted. Click to view.
So, I'm in a campaign that is in the very early transitional phases of like late renaissance (typical DnD basically) to Western technology. Basically, think going from 1500 to 1800. Anyways, what are the bare minimum you think would be required for a Cowhand? How would the world start to look differently? Obviously, Gunslingers and Advanced Firearms are starting to appear. But what kind of gear would they wear, still simple leather armor, boots, and a hat? Are there any systems with special cowboy gear or special armor that cowboys would wear, like Eastern Armor in Pathfinder? Would Cowboys still use sidearms, like swords, or would it just start to phase out totally? Where is that line where fantasy and knights and wizards start to phase out to Cowboys and Gypsies?

Isn't it kind of bullshit that a wizard gets to go from 0 Armor from 2 Armor just by spending some money, no level up advancement needed?

40k is kill

greetings /tg/. I haven't been on /tg/ much lately, so maybe I missed the previous discussions about the topic. Anyways, I started the warhammer 40k hobby in October, right before Halloween. I started with my first box of ork boys. I didn't think I would be able to paint them. Then they came out beautiful. I was in love. Next I got a pack of Cadian Shock Troopers. I was hooked. 40k was beautiful, exciting, and fun. Flash forward 8 months. Have 1000 pt army of Orks-- can't beat Eldar Serpent spam. So they told me try a different army. Have 2000pt army of IG-- can't beat eldar serpent spam, so they told me get more leeman russes. that didnt work so they told me get vendettas. that didnt work. So long story short when 7th edition was announced I was dismayed. I just bought the other fucking book. Well maybe it will balance out wave serpents I thought. nope. to this day I have never beat an eldar army with my IG army. never. I could see at least if I won 1/5 of the time (I'm not obsessed with winning). nope. 0 out of 14. I'm fucking fed up with this shit. serious. GW i hope one of you fucks is listening. A valuable newbie who was prepared to fork over thousands of more dollars has quit in frustration due to the fuck fest of imbalanced rules your game has. fuck you. 7th edition makes it worse! unbound-- get the fuck out of here with that shit. fuck me. anyone else feel the same??

Sup, /tg/. Just got a bunch of early Roman legionaries for DBA, and I want to ask you guys about uniform colour, since you usually know these kind of stuff: Would it be terrible anachronistic to paint them light blue shields and green tunics, like in the Asterix comics I grew up with? Every other reconstruction I've seen in movies, books, reenactments and so on have had red uniforms, but nostalgia is a powerful thing. So would blue and green be okay? Also general historic wargame thread, I suppose.

Again.) You groan as you sit up, holding your head. A whole barrel of... Cider, you think, hard cider, without any seasoning. Or moderation, either. Even split between three people. You're bleary, and the previous night is foggy, uncertain. You hardly remember much of anything - flashes of pale skin and smooth scale flit across your mind, but nothing rises in detail. You look around, feeling like your chest and neck are sticky and smell of old apples. You caress your scalp. You're in your dorm, you've a headache like you've only had a few times - wow, that shit is potent - and no one's in sight. Which is good, because you're buck naked. >Ugh. What the hell can I do about this hangover? >What happened to the experiments? >What happened to the others? >Where's Bob?

Mush-like games.

Mush-like games. 0 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hey /tg/. I just finished a one week long game of Mush. A social web browsing game, best described as a bastard child of the WereWolves of Millers Hollow, and a cylon (or rather, The Thing of carpenter), on a FTL ship. You play as a crew of a shitty corvette class ship, made hastly from the plan of a bigger colony ship, fleeing the infection of the Sol system and the federation by a parasite. the mush. As the ship was made in china, nearly everything break randomly, or when you use it too much. So you have to maintain it, destroy or outrun federation ships, find O2, and food, maintain the plants, search for a cure for the mush, planet with ressource, to send an expedition, and a new eden to settle. With a part of your crew already infected, and trying to spread the infection by contaminating food, human contact, ect. Fun game, really. I was wondering if there are tabletop game, like that. I heard of BSG. any other ?

It's been a busy day. You managed to "persuade" the Immaculate agents sent to Tianna to back off and return to the Realm. You're sure this isn't the last you'll be seeing of them, and that they might even return with a full Wyld Hunt maybe, but at least you bought some time. ...And, you met with Phoenix, the Abyssal that's been spying you, and managed to buy some more time there as well: He promises that you won't get backstabbed by them for one week. One week to find the Black Island, solve the Lintha problem, sink or rout their demon ship, put your hands on their treasure, make the sea around Tianna safe for trade again, and re-invest all that booty into the city of Pearl. And pay the prospectors which you have required to inspect the "new land" created where the Wyld has retreated, as well. Finding useful metals would be a boon on an island as poor in useful ores as Tianna is. Of course, you'll have to meet again with Phoenix, and bring Mikahil. You know he has the power to sanctify and enforce oaths. ...And, Phoenix also mentioned an exchange of hostages. Choosing someone to be sent to the Abyssal's place (wherever that is) is NOT a responsibility you want to have, but this entire deal is your idea... you can't exactly ask someone else to come up with a name. With these heavy thoughts on your mind, you return to the roof of Tianna castle. >Sleep here (alone, you don't want to talk about this with others for now.) >Sleep here (in Amata's bed. But don't tell her anything.) >Sleep here (in Amata's bed. Hear her opinion.) >Meet someone else here (Samiel/Irene/Zareen/Five Tails/Pyre Spark/Millian/Regis/Admiral Rajaan/The Three Captains/someone else?) >Return to Pearl (alone.) >Return to Pearl (get Five Tails to carry you.)

So I'm joining a Rogue Trader game. Probably going to make a Navigator. I know some 40k lore and have played some Dark Heresy, but my knowledge of RT and Navigators are a bit lacking. RT seems to be about being some kind of merchant-pirate in 40k. Navigators are, I believe, pretty much like navigators in Dune, only less floating-in-tank (as a starting character anyway). The rest of the crew seems to have a few heretics and semi-heretics amongst them. Figure playing a loyalist navigator in good standing would be weird and/or end the game fast (as in when the navigator finds out about the heresy, he'd either die or dump the heretics on some desolate planet [or kill them] pretty fast). And while that might be a fun couple of sessions, I think it might sour future games. Suggestions about what I should run and/or info on rogue trader? Differences between RT and DH? Shit I should grab for my character?

Hey /tg/, my Cleric of Saranrae has stumbled upon a village where everyone seems to be worshippers of Rovagug. I have taken it upon myself to kill everyone in this village. Alas, I am only level 4, though I may level up again by the time I return given how my GM hands out experience. This would give me access to the fireball domain spell. I have the budget of two diamonds, 500 gold pieces, and whatever my party is willing to put my way to accomplish this task. What would be the most cost effective method? I have contemplated just buying a wand of fireball and blowing up everyone's houses, letting the ensuing flames travel to nearby houses, but there might not be enough charges in the wand, I might not be able to afford it (average value of a diamond is 5000 gp, leaving me with an operating budget of 10500 gp, and a wand of fireball costs a little over 11000 gp). The next best option would be to use oil, but I'd need to bring in a fuck load of it and for people not to notice the smell while I'm setting shit up. I'm not sure how much hirelings will cost, but I think I may be able to bring in some thugs from Riddleport to get the job done the old fashioned way if need be. In any case, what do you guys think would be the most efficient way to bring Saranrae's wrath upon a small town?

We've all come up with a setting, or a game idea that we couldn't finish, or flesh out fully. Those ideas often just get forgotten about, in favor of the next thing we never bring to completion. Well fuck that. This is /tg/ and here we get shit done, or so I'm told. So here we are. Tell us all about those ideas you had but needed help finishing; or those ideas you DID finish and want to brag about; or ideas you stole from others and think the rest of us might want to steal too. Settings, lore, story plans and anything else I've not thought about.
