Fun fact: it took Celebrimbor 90 years to forge the Elven rings.

After far, far too long, I'm finally in a position to start running a D&D group again. This time I aim to do things better than before, and one thing I really need help with is D&D accessories. Mats, models, terrain, and other useful items to help illustrate battles. I'm not opposed to spending a bit on this, my only qualm is that I don't really wish to spend 5-20$ on individual mini's. Admittedly, any of those plastic/pewter mini's really wouldn't do too well for me anyways, because I can't pain for shit. Otherwise, I'm open to damn near anything there is out there. So far, I haven't found a lot that piques my interest, and was hoping some wiser folk around here were willing to share some sites or products. If it's relevant, we're doing pathfinder, and I do own the pathfinder mini's, the flat ones that mount to bases. TL;DR - D&D accessories general.

Hi, I was directed here by /v/... 73 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hi, I was directed here by /v/ because they thought you guys would be a much better job than they could. I have never been here before, but I've heard it's a lot nicer than /v/. I come here because I am looking for some people to help me flush out my design document that I'm creating. And while I could do this alone, it'd be more fun to do it with some other people. So if this thread does work out, that'll be great, if not oh well. The premise of the story is that deep under Antarctica' bedrock and ice, there is a vast expansion of water that lies below the frozen island at the top of the world. The worlds governments have built a military/research base underneath, that houses roughly 100-150 faculty. There is a transportation tube that allows people to travel back up to above surface from the bottom of the waters, but takes a long time to get up and down. Think of the setting as sort of Dead Space Industry themed, rather than Star Trek Voyager sleek and clean look. Here are the things I come seeking help for: What would the base look like? Biodomes that are surrounded with glass that you can look outward with? Or more industry with big metal frames and entrances that hold back the oceans pressure? My other main question is what would the color scheme be? Underwater would it be blue? Or could I go with anything I felt was a good cosmetic fit. This design document is meant to encompass the ambiance and playstyle of SS13, and combine it with 3D elements. If you have any questions please ask away.

Okay so /tg/ there is tale of an unsung hero who vanished/perished in the pursuit of giving the dick to that which it need be given. He was being haunted by a ghost and it was female so one day he decided that he was gonna fuck it so he set up a scenario or whatever. What ever happened with that? I know the whole thing was posted here but for the life of me I can't find it.

Serpenr Queen: Best WHFB novel... 0 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
So the one girl that Felix meets that actually likes him for who he is and who Gotrex approves of is a fucking mummy? Seriously, Dwarves don't suggest marriage unless it's real match. And Goterex suggests a Tomb Queen? This book is 50% Felix and and a Tomb Queen openly talking about how much they wish they could fuck each other if she wasn't a walking corpse. There are three scenes where she saves Felix from death by sacrificing herself for him. Lucky for him she is immortal. I don't get this. Felix has reached the point where even Tomb Queens want him, WTF? Not that she's that bad, i'd her eternal life.

Exalted Quest Recap Thread 3

This thread will not advance the quest or pick up from where we left, but just go over the story up to now. This is for the benefit of any new readers. First thread is already archived at: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/35040735/ And the entire quest is archived at: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Solar%20Quest As always, any questions and/or relevant discussions are welcome and I will answer to them at the best of my ability. If you're new to Exalted but think this Quest might be interesting, know that it's meant to be as newbie-friendly as possible. If you want to know more about the setting in general, http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Exalted We left our heroine Maka right after meeting with a bunch of new people. After that, she heads back to the western side of the island, where she still has some stuff to take care of. For now, her base of operations is Silk's fortress within the remaining Wyldland. She fulfills her promise to the Water Court and, in the process, realizes the full implications of Sirens' habit of seducing sailors and dragging them down to the depths of the sea. And decides she's going to fix that.

Of Chivalry and Tankery

Hello /tg/, a week ago we had a most interesting discussion involving a setting revolving around the concept of knights operating tanks and related landships, churning out a number of different settings explaining how such an event could come to be. I'm currently having trouble finding the archive, so I wonder if anyone else is knowledgeable as to its whereabouts. I also suppose this thread could be used to continue discussion. Did the 1d4 article ever get posted?

This is our remaking of Warhammer, with the same Emperor, similar but slightly different Imperium, and radically different Primarchs. Don't wanna be an Imperial, don't have a Primarch in mind? Not to worry! We welcome all here, currently we have an Ork Empire, a really fucked up Xenos/Human Empire, a Dark Eldar Kabal, a Khornate Knight House, and five different Imperial Army Regiments. Xenos Empires, Great Crusade Era Factions, Knight Houses, Titan Legions, Chapter Successors, Imperial Army Regiments, Eldar, Dark Eldar, anything and everything just come in and pitch it to be a part of the setting itself. With that out of the way, here is our wiki page. http://1d4chan.org/wiki/The_/tg/_Heresy On the menu: Horns of Ruin, what do? Imperial Army page when Dark Eldar guy, keep on writing, read your chapter, good stuff. Not much else to say on it.

The Change 3 (A Quest)

Ben is fast on his feet and next to his wife. He puts his arms around her shoulders from behind, glances at you, then clears his throat. "She, I mean Enid, tried to kill herself. When she was twelve," he says, his voice soft and measured. You keep your gaze locked on the doctor. The ferocious focus he hides behind the boisterous outside is fully engaged; his eyes shift from you to your parents, looking at your faces, your hands, the set of your shoulders, the way you hold yourselves. But he doesn’t say anything. Why isn’t anyone saying anything? Kiley seems content crying in the embrace of her husband. That, and crush your hand hard enough for you to groan from pain. She doesn’t let go. You remember reading a lot of pulp books in your time. Daly, Hammett, Cain, the masters. Short, terse sentences; self-awareness before that postmodern crap. None of that touchy-feely stuff. So what if she killed herself? Because she managed to do it, you’re fairly sure of that. And what does it mean for you? Are you damned because you’re in her body? Is she? Have you prayers been for naught? Or are you supposed to redeem her? Save her soul by living for her? You jerk upright when Dr. Sakamoto coughs. "Are you alright, Enid?" he asks. >Bolt. >"It’s not me anymore." >N???o???.??? >Other (Write in) [Vote time will be 15 minutes, since new thread.]

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Etyu3LuwHU Have you ever had a dramatic high adventure Final Fantasy style game? I'm not talking about the later games, where it's all scifi and you're fighting against corrupt churches and megacorps, I'm talking about classic era "Warriors of Light" stuff, with floating continents and talking crystals. Tell me how that went, so that I might live vicariously through your stories and ideas.
5e D&D rules loopholes... 21 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
5e D&D rules loopholes time! Using a high damage weapon from the MM, such as the bone devil polearm. Benefits: 2d12 damage on a reach weapon. RAW: 3/10. The weapon is large and you may not be proficient. RAW 5/10: Be a blade pact warlock, shape your blade into the weapon. This may not work, the feature says there is a list of weapons in chapter 5 and you DM may rule these are the only weapons that can be used. RAW 7/10: Use the weapon master feat to gain proficiency, which just says 'pick 4 weapons to become proficient in'. RAW 7/10: Use enlarge self or become a werebear/weretiger to become large. RAW 10/10: Use both tricks above to become unarguably able to use a 2d12 weapon proficiently RAW 8/10: Use an ice devil spear. 2d8 piercing+3d6 cold+DC15 slow, and unlike every other monster with bonus effects weapons the ice devil doesn't have a line in its profile saying the extra damage comes from the monster, so RAW the bonus effects come from the weapon. Become a lycanthrope (werebear for preference) Benefits: Large hybrid form, 19 strength, +1 armour, 2d8 claw, 2d10 bite, free multiattack without needing extra attack RAW: 9/10. Your alignment changes and your DM may rule he gets to use your character now, but tigers are neutral and werebears are lawful good with shouldn't be a problem. You'll need to find a way to become a lycanthrope, which your DM can decide against. Ask to start off as a werebear. Try to find one and convince him to bite you for the greater good. Use divination spells to find one and enchantment to make it bite you, werebears have a low wisdom save. Glyph of warding plus hunter's mark/hex Benefits: You get +1d6 to every hit all day without having to concentrate RAW: 9/10. You cast glyph of warding, add your spell at an 8 or 24 hour duration and then have a helpless critter trigger it, then you kill said critter. On a subsequent turn you may now shift the mark to a new target, and this will last all day.

Hey, after reading up AD&D and 3.5e, I think I realized why Casters is too OP in caster ed. 1) Wizards know all their spells per level, rather than buying scrolls or hunting said spells down. 2) Spells don't have drawbacks anymore. Haste doesn't speed up your aging, death touch doesn't bathe you in negative energy, etc. 3) Concentration is piss easy to pass. Invest in enough of the concentration skill point, and only a killing blow will thwart your casting. 4) 3.5 introduced way too many contingencies for casters. If you removed them altogether, Casters and Martials should be back to being equal in terms of powerlevel. Thoughts, /tg/?

Good evening, /tg/. Welcome to Exalted - Guardian Beast Quest. Last session, our nameless, Casteless Lunar chimera assisted in the destruction of a Circle of Dragon-blooded assassins and rescued what appears to be our mate — an Abyssal, a woman in nondescript attire who wielded a spear. Contact with her has returned some of our sanity and humanity to us. We have no knowledge of her or her kind. Or of ourselves. or where we are. Let's change Creation tonight.

Stage 35: Aftermath and Alternatives and Appellations. A short while later, tears dried – on both sides of the hug – you and Kiki-hime walk over to where Er Yin-sensei and the others are talking softly and delving into their bentos, more snacks than actual meals. Kiku-chan dips into the basket and pulls out a ferociously pink one with small black polka dots for her sister, while you shake your head and take a bottle of water only, sitting on the soft grass and heedless of the effects on the silk you are wearing. Kiki-hime sits next to you, looking relaxed, and you have to admit, you feel better. It is less of a burden to not have to consider how she will look at you when the time to deal out some real death and destruction comes. It is inevitable, perhaps, but for today at least you avoided the issue by convincing Ryuu Wakaba that she was much better served dealing with the annoying Catholics who have been slowly starting to intrude upon your live, bit by bit. Last time it was a tracking spell that was countered by Yui, and the time before they had been waiting near the faux-safehouse now abandoned. She may be a psychotic, but she's at least in control enough to serve Oba-san's interests for now. Sooner or later you're going to have to face her, though.

Elven society after a genocide.

Elven society after a... 23 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
How do you imagine elves to be after if kingdom of elves were to be conquered, and its population decimated and dispersed throughout lands belonging to humans and other races. What role would they find themselves in human societies where they face the contempt of the victorious? Would they become like the ronin of Feudal Japan, putting their superlative combat prowess to use as enforcers, mercenaries, assassins and bodyguards. Would they starve and turn destitute without any knowledge of farming, trade or occupation? Would they form insular communities and turn to organized crime? What would elven culture then be like then, what would it evolve into?
