Our monthly dose of DM just dropped. What better time to make a new thread?

Dungeon Meshi - Adventurers eating monsters in a dungeon with some mysterious shit going on. Great art. Fun characters.

Hakumei to Mikochi (aka Little Lives in the Forest or Inchling Adventures!) - The comfy slice of life shenanigans of two Inchling girls living in the forest. It's about doing work, having fun, making delicious food, and occasionally helping their necromancer friend with her experiments. Comfy as fuck. Gorgeous art. Full of culture and personality and world-building.

Maou-jou de Oyasumi (aka Sleepy Princess) - Princess captured by a cliche RPG Demon King tries to find the best way to sleep while in the Demon King's castle. Ruins everything.

Goblin Slayer - Mysterious autist partners with other adventurers strictly for the purpose of slaying goblins. It's brutal as shit. Bad ends await everyone.

Kumo desu ga, nani ka? (aka Heresy Spider) - Normal high school girl is reincarnated as a low-level spider in an MMORPG-ish world. She survives through pure strategy and wit, while climbing the ranks and learning new skills.

Somali To Mori No Kami-Sama (Loli & Golem Adventures) - A young child and a Forest-protecting Golem embark on an adventure to find where all the humans went in a world where Monster-folk have taken over.

Golden Kamui - Japanese war veteran who is supposedly unkillable and an Ainu girl get tied up in a crazy scheme to locate a ton of gold by finding pieces of a map tattooed on the bodies of escaped convicts. Oddly educational and full of useful information.

Otoyomegatari (aka A Bride's Story) - Asian girl moves across Asia to marry her shota husband. Absolutely gorgeous art, full of culture and history.

You know a common way for Japs to mark a liar or someone completely full of themselves in mango is to elongate the nose by basically stretching it out at the tip, exactly like Pinocchio and the elongated wooden nose. Now Lais looking like he's got a bit of that going on is seeing too much into things but long and large noses have always been associated with deceit and lies.



Or just being a fucking gaijin, you know



Japs can't tell Jews and Caucasians apart, ironic when they get pissed if you call them Chinese.



Just because whites don't have squashed nigger-noses it doesn't make them long by any means

Episode 2 is better. At least watch that one before stopping.



That argument is similar to Bethesda's "make your stories" excuse. Your argument would hold more water if the monsters had some kind of thematic consistency. Card art or flavor text making references to other monsters is the exemption not the norm.


I didn't even watch Arc-V or Zexal. Watching the first is already asking too much from me considering this is fucking Yu-Gi-Oh!.

The anime will always be stupid. I don't care if they make the plot super ridiculous like make it exist since the medieval era or something but don't make the duels asspulls. The retarded anime writing will always treat something like sacrificing LPs and Monsters as a badguy strategy. Solomon Moto's deck is shit. Exodia is his trump card yet it isn't full of search cards.

This explains why the cards looked that way in Season 1 and 0.


Only a handful of monsters actually have a backstory is from a specific location. Most is just random card arts with names and if lucky effects loosely tied it. Attributes are a lot less important than what the cards made it look like.


Yu-Gi-Oh! is the only TCG that is in constant threat of FTKs.



It's - un-ironically - too late for Yu-Gi-Oh! To fix BIG things.

The only thing they can do is keep making new cards till the game die.

I used to meticulously plan my sessions and character stats and everything. Now I just take a few notes for events and outlines for sessions and improvise the rest. I've been doing this for all my sessions lately, I guess I'm past the "meticulous planning" stage of GMing.

What games ya running, lads? I'm currently ~24-25 sessions into my Legends of the Wulin campaign. PC's are getting ready to rally all the surviving Wulin fighters in the land in a rebellion against the Dynasty after the "Emperor was assassinated" and power assumed by a eunuch demonic sorcerer.

Yoon-Suin is cool. The guy who wrote it is also working on a new supplement for it right now, so you have the potential to get more content to work with pretty soon, as well. I recommend.

I was wondering why even though it was a new episode it didn't feel like a TTS episode and then it hit me, it's essentially a filler episode. The bridge episode between 26.1 and 27 where nothing major happens.

I also worry it may be getting too meta, with Alpha putting in one of his boardgame battles in. Such behavior leads them to sniffing their own farts.



I feel like for all the flashy animation and plot threads I'm much less entertained than the earlier episodes.



I miss story time. I know the plot has to move forward but I still miss learning about the galaxy with professor emperor.

Because non-core races tend to run a bright red "That Guy" flag. A lot of shit players will try to play as a quirk or a stereotype instead of an actual character and it's made much easier by being a different race so you can write off any stupid shit or insufferable traits as "lol, i'm an [X]". Think roasties and astrology as a reference point.

That, and depending on the setting it can make the question of how the party formed a whole lot harder to answer. A bunch of humans and maybe a dwarf meeting in a tavern is one thing- but how are you going to introduce the rakshasa sorcerer?



>introduce the rakshasa sorcerer

Planescape tavern. In an overpowered monster campaign.

But that generally is why whoever is driving the initial game should be generally clear on what they want to play. Human nation gearing up for war in the DM's new pet setting means will work with players on the one or two friendly relations the nation has. If one or two players are really itching to play with weird shit like the super edgy shadow elves, then it can be incorporated. Point is, everyone should be friends first, and be able to work out non-trivial shit like this during character creation before even sitting down for a game.


I just lost a game pretty badly and feel a bit bad. It was a loss so humilliant I felt like not playing that game anymore. Is the Batman Miniature Game.

I'm tired of miniature games offering you fake options when in the end you need some particular miniatures to win easily and without efford instead of play with what you like.



Infinity is likely the closest you're going to get. There's definitely some units that are good and some that are bad, such is an inevitability, but actual tactics during gameplay always trumps list-building. The basic armies you get out of the starter sets + Beyond expansions are far from optimal, but can easily win you games against opponents with an "optimal" list as long as you know what you're doing.

It's getting to know what you're doing that's the challenge.

Because asking for financial advice on a japanese cartoon imageboard is a good idea, right?

So my hometown is a post industrial rust belt community of about seven thousand. It has, or rather had until recently, a FLGS primarily catering to students of the local high school. Trading card games were their bread and butter, and it actually did fairly well on that because god knows there's nothing else for kids to do in this town besides stay at home and shoot up heroin.

The FLGS owner was and is in the process of going through a harsh divorce. The building the shop is housed in recently changed hands, the landlord cashing out to retire, and apparently at that point the FLGS owner decided to wash his hands of the whole thing. He stopped paying rent, abandoned a store full of inventory, and disappeared to god only knows where.

A friend and I tracked down the 'new' landlord to ask about the possibility of acquiring some of the abandoned stock. We get to talking, and find out that losing the FLGS rent was an unexpected blow for him. He really doesn't need the hassle of trying to recoup what he can from the inventory, nor trying to find a new client for that space. Long story short, he is willing to turn over the whole operation, lock stock and barrel, to anyone that will commit to keeping up the rent payments.

I'm thinking about taking him up on it.

I'll be the first to tell you that this is way beyond my expertise and that I have no idea what to do with this opportunity that fell into my lap. My friend has worked in retail management all his life, so he knows how to run a store, at least from the ground floor level. I've got a couple of other friends I could pull in that know the community and community management better than I do. On the other hand, I've heard too many horror stories of people investing their lifes savings opening up a shop, working their asses off for years, and still losing their shirt.

Is this in Missouri, because the situation you just described matches my hometown, new landlord and everything.



I have nothing to offer besides sell snacks if you do it. All the FLGS' in my area make quite a bit of their money just selling soda, chips, and candy to players who spend considerable amounts of time there.



Then I'd say don't bother fighting a battle you can't win.

OP, don't go out of your way to get some share from Amazon.



Soda is the big one. Sell a large soda for $1 a cup, you make a profit of about 95 cents on each one. One of the EZ-Marts in my hometown said that something like 25% of their profit came just from selling sodas.



Generally speaking I wouldnt want to aim towards adult daycare (not the least of which you will inevitably get kids in there). That said, if you are you have the added advantage of hub status, but its going to mean doing a lot activites/events for a bunch of ungrateful shitheads and kids. Hope you love this shit op.

The problem is you're doing it in reverse. It's a misnomer that working up from the beginning to the present is more realistic, but it's actually not. Instead, start with the present that you want, take the other ideas you have, and piece it together. Further, have a willingness to not answer things. Consider this - How many people are there in the world right now that legitimately believe the Earth is flat, or that 9/11 never happened? How much debate is there over the Holocaust? Or of any aspect of history? When you design a world, only work with what is known in-universe, and give multiple sides to it, because what is "known" isn't necessarily true. You can work in a few other things, like the "rules" of the setting, or a few secrets which are to be revealed ("the Dark Lord was actually just a really big snake the priests would wave around, and the ritual to awaken him is a prank").

How to know when it's time to stop? When you have enough to make it believable. Sit down, put yourself in the head of a normal person. Take human history, and go from the beginning to the present. Be loose with it. Do the same with your setting. If you've already made a huge background, this is the point you should actually start trimming. What's left is the stuff important enough to make a story off of.



If you've thought to ask, you're probably done.




This is mostly the jist of the background I've created. I have most of it memorized instead of written down and need to go through it all in order for me to remember it all. There is more to it, especially some warfare stuff. I also have the story's main characters and the location where they will spend the majority of their time.

Basic history is WWIII fucked shit up, one nation survived and rebuilt. Outer colonies died out for one, a Russian colony, and it is under quarantine. They don't want to kill them, but they also don't want to be a threat. Humanity is one of the more technologically advanced races in the known galaxy thanks to the Caldwell reactor. The reactor was originally meant to replace nuclear reactors and up the energy created. It was originally made in orbit of Titan, but after a tragic accident most information is lost along with Caldwell. Took Earth decades to reproduce it from what little notes there were. Turns out it can't be used near strong gravity (i.e. close to a star) and it could be more than a reactor. It creates a hole in our universe to an artificial universe with an altered speed of light. Every race encountered by humanity has no technology like the Caldwell reactor and therefore are more of a hard scifi race. Humanity rejects xenos for the most part, unless they can relate to them somehow. Too alien aliens are wiped out, less alien aliens are either left alone, enslaved, or vassaled (Humanity tells them what they can and cannot do, communication happens, and they are quarantined to their system.)

Culturally humanity is very isolationist. Any contact with aliens is kept at a minimum. They do not want their culture and people to be tainted. I'm still working on the whole for the most part, but I have bits and pieces done. Injuries are often covered by a porcelain covers. For example a burn on the face will be covered by a mask and a missing limb will be covered by a plate. The color of the designs indicate how the injury was caused. One color would be work injury, and other color being war wound, etc. Prosthetics are shunned asPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
