Also Rebecca Guay though hyped as fuck I like her art like My foil enchanted evening

Teriese Nielsen does some god-tier shit as well even though hyped as fuck.

MtG is best with slightly more classical art in a fantasy setting.



Really like Justin Sweet (Arcanis, Eternal Dragon), personally. Classics like Critchlow (Innocent Bllod, Call of the Herd) or Schuler (Hypnotic Specter, Tempest forests, Ice Age swamps) are also in my book.

They are like tapeworms but for societies rather than intestines.

the minotaur couldn't leave the fucking maze because the Minoans fucking locked the fucking door any time they weren't sending in teens for him to eat. He could get anywhere in it he wanted to just fine.

[citation needed]

What's the point of the Labyrinth, a palace so intricately built its brilliant architect himself has trouble navigating it, if a half-beast monster can escape and the only thing keeping it in is a locked door? The maze wouldn't be better than an ordinary prison.

For vidya, if you want to play a goblin, Styx is good.

Just set it to highest difficulty so you can't party your way out of danger if you are caught. You are a goblin half the size of the humans it doesn't make sense. Just be a sneaky git stabbing them from behind or using sneaky magiks.

As a matter of necessity, /tg/ hobbies crossover with a variety of crafty hobbies. Learning to paint and assemble models and miniatures is a big one, but there are all kinds of other little things we teach ourselves to do in order to enhance our games or increase ease of play.

So, let's have a thread about making crafty things. Props you made for the table. Things you built to contain all the bits and pieces you need for GMing. Dice bowls, deck holders, carrying cases, storage solutions.

Spent some quality time with the dice bowl. Decided to just go with an all cardboard build for now, and to go with a heptagonal design this time.

Coming together nicely so far.

How coincidental, I'm actually working on making a DM screen for my pokemon game, modeled on the Ruins of Alph. I'd make it out of sturdier materials, but I don't see the point in doing that until I have a place with enough space for a real gaming table.

The idea here is to hollow out the two foam blocks on the bottom and put some kind of lid on top and use that as dice/miniature storage. The sides of the walls will be connected to the main area by hinges, so it can be folded up into a nice 2 square foot package.

Might as well post my shitty work. I feel like i've fucked up the first and only mini I ever put together. Been lazy about putting together the rest of my guardsmen due to fear of fucking up.

Any tips for putting together minis? Also for painting, I wonder if I should've painted first, then put him together. How exactly do you paint a mini and get hard to reach areas? Each time I think about all the ways I can mess up, I delay getting putting things together.

Oh, and how exactly do some of you get so creative with your stuff?



The answer to all your questions is practice. Lots and lots of practice. Years, in most cases. I've been in this hobby since 3rd ed, and I'm still not as good as some of the people in this thread.

File: 9b5d08ce448d2c6⋯.jpg (252.75 KB, 900x1272, 75:106, Dawn Fighter.jpg)


So, similar to the past projects I've shown to /tg/ this is a new one I've been working on as of late. This has been eating up a good 4-5 months of time at the point it's at now, and I expect it'll take longer 'til it's truly done. Though, it's in a playable state right now.


This is a d20 system which draws inspiration from other tabletop games such as 3.5e/Pathfinder, Star Wars: Saga Edition, Eclipse Phase, Palladium/RIFTS (which was what gave me the inspiration to make this), Burning Wheel, and quite a few other systems I've played and/or skimmed.

Rather than a leveling from 1-20 system, this uses an EXP building system (similar to the Warhammer 40k tabletops, Shadowrun, etc.) with a standard character typically starting with 20 EXP to spend. There is a point-buy set-up with each character receiving 5 points to divvy among their 6 stats (the standard D&D stats, you should know these). Characters receive bonuses from their species (either a +2 in one stat or a +1 in two) and a +1 from their chosen class (typically stats the class would likely use, like Soldiers having the choice of adding a +1 to any of their physical stats).

As you can imagine, this project is still in development (and will be for a while), but I wanted to ask /tg/ for help coming up with additional content. I'm mostly looking for more Classes, Species, Feats, and Talents.

(Also, some aspects of the site are unfinished, though these are few and far between. Suggestions for these areas are greatly appreciated.)

That'd be appreciated, yes.


Small update that I've started adding a couple new species to the mix (you can see them here: https://sites.google.com/site/multiversesrd/home/species )

Dark Elves (Drow), Ga'au (souls converted into a psychic mass, very powerful psychics), Light Elves (opposite to Dark Elves), and Sustinere (bear men)


What does your system offer that another does not?

Are you worried that because you are using things from fiction (such as the force) that the system could become overburdened with types of magic?

Is this a system that just grows indefinitely or do you eventually reach a point where you think it'll be comprehensive enough?

Can I play a frog?



File: a8b97359ddffaf0⋯.jpg (204.87 KB, 600x868, 150:217, Grippli.jpg)


The system offers a wide breadth of choices while not being overly obtuse in its method of use. Standard d20 system, plays kinda like Saga Edition with its uses of Saving Throws as Defenses.

I'm not too concerned about that, so long as I work with what I have when things seem a bit similar to each other. I have been hesitant about adding more types of magic beyond the ones originally planned out (Arcane, Divine, Psychic, The Force, and Runes) since I feel they cover it for the most part. However, I might add the other two that don't have pages yet or may delete them if I don't feel they warrant an entire spell list.

The system itself will grow indefinitely or until I'm tired of working on it. I am not going to stop until it reaches a certain point however, since I don't want to just up and give up on it at some point down the line.

[While they aren't there yet, expect Grippli in the future]


Did a few routine fixes of some things, added a new Soldier talent that allows them to cause people near them to become frightened or attack him.

Tomorrow I'm running my game of this system, and Monday there will be a lot more updates regarding the game.

What do you think a super setting would look like if people and societies behaved more like they do IRL? If you wrote a Super setting that didn't stick to the rules of a comic book setting. Off the top of my head, I'm thinking such a setting would have this:

>No need for re-occurring supervillains or being PG means Supervillains actually die when they act like terrorists and mass murderers. Either in combat to protect people, or by the death penalty except in the most progressive states. Maybe even international tribunals for the most abhorrent. No supervillain escaping out of prison every month.

>Governments wouldn't be completely incompetent in regards to handling Supers. Supers get co-opted by the state or the private in exchange for $$$, which would lower the amount of Super-powered criminals, depending on what they can do. Vigilantism would be frowned upon, and Supers would not be immune from the judicial system. This does make an assumption that not every Super is as strong as Superman however.

>Definitely no "Supers are an oppressed minority who live in ghettos". At worst, they're feared or envied for being the special snowflakes with powers they are. Maybe some Supers would actually think they're better than mundane people.

>Supers actually change the timeline if the point-of-divergence was decades ago instead of recently. Especially in technology if there are any Super Geniuses/Gadgeteers.

Check out Fire Punch.

The apocalypse happened because random people got superpowers, and because they were people - meaning that they sometimes started shit without thinking things through or because someone pushed their buttons way too hard.

It's also an autistic comedy.

Also the japs have managed to repulse the SJW who infiltrated American comics in the late 90's early 2000's with their lolicon.

if SJW wasnt busy making every western comic and crossover media shit something might get done worth while. Tiger and Bunny and My Hero Academia have honestly been the best hero things I've watched since BTBATB.

But hey, you can always try them and if you don't like them watch something else.

(re)Starting a campaign tomorrow, and the player changes have settled this way: three human monks.

I had this whole murder-hobo-for-gold storyline that I hoped would entice and entertain. I don't think I can railroad them into this, now.

How do I get a set of monks showing up for international competitions, to wander aimlessly-ish into the jungle for a forgotten book written in a language no one alive knows, then wander into lawless raider infested deserts to trade the jewel back in exchange for a fetch quest, only to return and be told the next McGuffin is on the plains, well to the south (where they'll have to defeat otherworldly horrors that were not on the agenda)?

Ultimately they'll be saving lives and increasing safety for those on this plane but they're not supposed to know that until at least the third mcguffin is retrieved…

Whose to say that the reason they're coming together isn't the direct result of their superiors within their respective orders? Monks generally obey the will of their superiors within the organization, which can provide lots of room for justification. The head monks could have some scheme or wager which involves sending the players out on a grand adventure. Possibly as a sincere test of their skills, or possibly just to get them out of the monastery.


Monks and martial artists are usally painfully horny for any sort of martial arts manual, especially if it's ancient. They'll go any length for those.



I hope to, yes.


Current plans include overhearing that a map to the Book of Skill has been seen in the city.

Oh, right. Skihl. That was his name. When the get the thing back to town to be translated, it'll be explained it was Skihl's diary. Useful, to some. Not so much the monks BUT can we hire you as bodyguards…?

Depending on what kung fu movies you watch, a Monk is either the guy who wants to fight at all times, to test his skills so he might affirm the value of his training and himself, or someone who never wants to fight, because martial arts are only a means to achieve enlightenment and the cessation of violence.

Since this is D&D we're talking about… Monks are people who have taken to making their bodies into weapons to survive a harsh world. Looking at the kind of powers that Monks receive, it's pretty obvious that they have sought a means of combat that allows them to venture into a dangerous world without reliance on weapons or armor.


I always saw monks as men who dedicated their entire existence to self improvement in one specific area

We haven't had a proper collective worldbuilding thread since the April 1st hack, so let's make one. You know the rules, write some lore for the setting in each post.

For starters, what genre should our new setting be? Scifi? Fantasy? Post-apocalypse? Cyborg dinosaurs?

>I can dig it

I can just see it now, the fire roaring in the Dank Hydroponics Bay.. the plate wearing cannibals arranged around the console. their god of devouring. Each victim is led to the console to enter their last word, their pass word and if successful, become the leader of the tribe.

As the ships automated defenses kill everyone who type in the correct phrase of the alien language of the ancients (of which the cannibals greedily consume the laser charred flesh afterwords) there is one person, who listens to the chanting in the background.


Over and over again before typing in Password1 and gaining salvation. Now with a crew of cannibals who are looking hungrily at their new leader, they think to themselves "Why did I ever go to the hydroponics bay".



The Bridge has full access to the records, but they're not telling. Even when some of their members show up (which is extremely rare), they refuse to give out any info. That's because even they don't know - the Bridgemen that do show up usually have info on a strict-to-know basis, meaning that they only know what's necessary for the job and little else. In most cases they aren't even allowed to talk with the Crewmen.

The higher-ups are the ones who know everything, but most of them are forbidden to leave the Bridge ever, and have been permanently plugged into the ship. They hope to achieve immortality through singularity with the ship, which explains why the AIs aboard the ship have started acting weirder. To minimize the collateral damage from uploading their brains into the ship, the Bridgemen operate on an almost alien logic, utterly cold and ruthless, to minimize emotional impact when they get uploaded into the ship.

The others have various bits and pieces of lore, mixed with whatever was available on the public broadcasts and while sleeping in cryostatis. This ended up with them forging entire religions based off movies, advertisements, and documentaries (all cleared up and made as PC as possible before the ship flew off). Some cults are actually megacorps, when people bought their marketing pitch too seriously.


What if the space that is crossed is not actually empty but it is as good as empty once the ship enters. The systems cannot, indefinitely, sustain human life as any system loses energy as it continues and it must harness resources from the outside in order to function so when it passes through or near anything that can be salvaged then it does so. The AI was not programmed to tell any of its inhabitants about what it does, only that anything it encounters is dead because that is mostly true - it will be dead by the time the ship has ripped the water and crude carbon from it. In order to minimize the potential for accidental infection it keeps living samples of anything it takes into itself in order to experiment and find out if there any other unknown consequences down the pipeline, artificially sustaining it in vats that are hidden in plain sight. If any of the human occupants see them their hardware projects it as just another wall. Anyone who tries to salvage the 'wall' and ends up accidentally waking up what the ship has been breaking into paste for them is swiftly, silently, and ruthlessly disposed of.

Since it isn't perfect, however, the ship AI has made a few mistakes in the past by allowing people to consume things that were not explicitly compatible with humans in desperation. During previous generations and during some of the longer periods of nothingness the ship desperately took something on board that could survive being broken down and when it entered the bodies of the AI's charge things went…wrong. These mistakes, unable to be hidden in plain sight as easily, are simply tucked away inside the hull in various hidden chambers being quietly sustained by rations that seem to disappear sometimes with the AI insisting it didn't make a calculation error. Or at least it didn't miscalculate the EXACT amount of water and food it takes to sustain of these unfortunate abominations in a state of near death.

Everyone knows that there is no sound in space but everyone also doesn't ask too many questions about what the moans and screams sometimes at night are about, assuming they're from someone else rather than someTHING else.

I like this, but to take it a step further, what if the carrier actually was the center of a VonNeumann Probe swarm that was cotinueing on its original directive and inadvertently has ended up destroying several solar systems and 2 civilizations in their search for life. The trip will never end until the mass of probes draws the carrier to the center of the universe to destroy all life or itself.
