How to roll dice: "dice+2d6" without the quotes in the email field rolls 2d6. "dice+5d42+23" rolls 5d42+23. "noko+dice+2d6" rolls 2d6 without showing the roll in the email field.

In the rules department, you can look at - all global and board specific rules are in full effect. Apart from that, only two rules are important.

>You are portaled into a world that has magic that runs on the rules of Pathfinder 1e.
>The magic and only the magic runs on those rules.
>There aren't any explicit levels or XP or system interfaces or anything like that.

>The world is otherwise a general fantasy world with no tech restrictions or anything like that but they haven't hit a widespread industrial age.
>Plenty of magitech and magic in general is very widespread, if shallow throughout the general populace.
>Most people can cast a cantrip/0th level spell if they take the time to learn.
>Magic overall is similar to woodworking in that anybody can do it but only some really dedicate themselves to it or make living from it but most commoner-equivalents in the world have at least some passing familiarity.
Assuming you are capable of gaining the abilities and capabilites of any class except a full caster (anything above a 6th level spell), what do you go for?

From a mechanical perspective, what rules and ideas absolutely need to be present when firearms are present? Is that dependent on the nature of the game itself? Is it as easy as reflavoring a crossbow and occasionally throwing in some seasoning to make something a tad bit different?

How would I go about running a Barnyard setting?

To start, every playable character would be a beastfolk/uplifted animal. Since the setting would be in an area on/around a farm some of your choices would be among animals such as Cattle, Sheep, Goats, Horses, Donkeys, Llamas, Alpacas, Chickens, Ducks, Pigs, Dogs, Cats, Rabbits, Ferrets, Mice, and Bees. There’d be antagonistic animals such as Raccoons, Coyotes, Cougars, Snakes, Weasels, Rats, Crows, Bears, Alligators, Crocodiles, Locusts, and Hornets. You could also toss human hunters into the mix. And then there would be miscellaneous animals outside the barnyard fence that could either be a nuisance or an ally depending on how they feel towards you such as Foxes, Badgers, Pigeons, Sparrows, Owls, Geese, Moles, Gophers, Beavers, Muskrats, Squirrels, Chipmunks, Skunks, Shrews, Deer, Moose, Otters, Hedgehogs, Frogs, Anoles, Geckos, Turtles, Moths, and Spiders.

In a Barnyard setting the animals typically won’t hold conversations with a human since it would cause a panic to see an animal walking and talking. So there’d need to be a mechanic for disguises in order to speak with humans. But for the most part you will be attempting to form more alliances with other animals to help protect the farm animals and it’s crops. Interactions between other animals would depend on your species and where you fall on the food chain. Many animals will ask you to complete various tasks, with some tasks that will make you stray far from the safety of the barnyard. You’ll also scrounge around or “purchase” items from other animals for the barnyard to set up night parties.

/DRAWTHREAD/ /tg/'s drawthread: Candle-lit Knight Edition

• Provide good, detailed references (pictures are better than verbal descriptions), so the artists know what you're looking for.
• Only bump your request once every 24 hours. Don't bump WIPs.
• If you have a WIP quote the Anchor Post, and attach the WIP so your Drawfag can find you.
• Do not reply to other deliveries with a request that the artist fill your request next, this is called 'piggybacking'.
• Do not make multiple requests in the same thread and do not serially request multiple characters after a delivery. Suggesting several concepts for artists to choose from counts as making multiple requests.
• If you're unsatisfied with your completed request, please wait at least one week before you re-request. If someone follows this rule, don't waste posts by complaining about it.
• Reminder that nobody is entitled to a delivery under any circumstances within these threads. Don't critique others' requests. If you don't like it, don't draw it.
• Ignore the bait, you're better than this
• Stay on topic

Matriarchal society?
Would it too far-fetch for me to include a city-state that's completely matriarchal in every aspect in its society in a Classical antiquity campaign? To give a bit more context, it's a fantasy Sparta ruled by women where men are, at best, second class citizens and it's a military land-power. I want to know how I should make plausible and believable enough for the players to believe it.

Getting into D&D 3.5
3.5 veterans of /tg/, I seek thy help. I like to run sandboxy games with little to no regard for "balance", so for obvious reasons I'd like to try DMing a 3.5 Eberron campaign soon. However, neither my friends nor I have any experience with the system, so I'd appreciate any and all advice you can offer.
I mainly seek book recommendations - 3.5 has an ocean of content, and I don't wanna overwhelm my players (and myself) by allowing absolutely everything in their very first campaign. I've already settled on the three core rulebooks, as well as all the Eberron ones. Are there any others I should check out? Which ones should I avoid?

Horror From Beyond The Stars
Evil Moon
Hey /tg/

I run a 5e (I know) campaign, for four players. They have, in the last few sessions, been very "fish-out-of-water", as they've accidentally fallen into a land that was "cut off" from the home plane, to curtail an invasion and infection all in one, years ago.

The land is totally ravaged by infection, but they were surprised to find some hardy survivors who travel the land, just barely holding on. They have been travelling with a ranger-type, who seems to them to be slightly insane, but very capable at fighting and surviving in this blighted place, but even he has given them the absolute prime rule that they absolutely mustn't break- don't go out at night.

To get around this, he stays in churches, under ancient holy statues, in seemingly unaffected homesteads, and other "safe-havens" every night, and will only travel if he knows he can make it to one within a day. It is not clear to the players if he even knows what happens at night, or if he just knows that he's never gone out at night and has still survived, but they are treating his advice as sage.

They have since discovered that the source of much of the woes here (at least to do with the creeping madness, not necessarily any of the other maladies) is because of a "false moon" in the night sky, that has either eaten the true moon, or simply covers it.

There has been some pretty horrible shit that has come upon the party, by-day (corpses dragging themselves around, attacks by enraged people totally subsumed by sickness and madness, shambling mounds of pests that wear mortal's skins in a (doomed) attempt to blend in and who will attempt to kill you if you don't keep up with their charade), but I need that whatever happens to those out at night to pale in comparison to these encounters, in both their madness and survivability.

The rub is, is that (for reasons I won't specify in case any of my players are watching), the false moon radiates terrible "eldritch" energies (cont.).

Moldvay was far better than Gygax
>While (Basic) D&D campaigns can be those which feature comic book spells, 43rd level balrogs as player characters, and include a plethora of trash from various and sundry sources, AD&D cannot be so composed. Either a DM runs an AD&D campaign, or else it is something else. This is clearly stated within the work, and it is a mandate which will be unchanging, even if AD&D undergoes change at some future date. While DMs are free to allow many unique features to become a part of their campaign—special magic items, new monsters, different spells, unusual settings—and while they can have free rein in devising the features and facts pertaining to the various planes which surround the Prime Material, it is understood they must adhere to the form of AD&D. Otherwise what they referee is a variant adventure game...
>Because the integral features are known and immutable, there can be no debate as to what is correct. A meaningful dialog can be carried on between DMs, regardless of what region they play in. Players can move from one AD&D campaign to another and know at the very least the basic precepts of the game—that magic-users will not wield swords, that fighters don’t have instant death to give or take with critical hits or double damage, that strange classes of characters do not rule the campaign, that the various deities will not be constantly popping in and out of the game at the beck and call of player characters, etc. AD&D will suffer no such abuses, and DMs who allow them must realize this up front...

>The D&D game has neither losers nor winners, it has only gamers who relish exercising their imagination. The players and the DM share in creating adventures in fantastic lands where heroes abound and magic really works. In a sense, the D&D game has no rules, only rule suggestions. No rule is inviolate, particularly if a new or altered rule will encourage creativity and imagination. The important thing is to enjoy the adventure.

Gygax a SHIT.

Wargames and skirmish games
So I've been thinking of getting into wargames or skirmish games at my local club recently, but I'm a bit lost as to which one to pick. There's a lot of options out there and the buy-in is a big commitment, so I'd like to get some info beforehand. Some of the games I'm aware of and/or interested in:
>40k and AoS
>Kings of War
>Kill Team and Warcry
>Star Wars Legion
>MESBG, I guess
>[Your underrated skirmish/wargame of choice that you want more converts for]
Not that interested in historicals as a concept, but I could be persuaded. So, is there anywhere one can compare and contrast all of these and the rest of the field? Which ones do you guys think are more fun to play, easier to get into (from a rules, modeling or buy-in cost perspective), mechanically deeper, have better models or better setting and lore? Many thanks.

How to design a game for girls (not troll nor bait thread)
I've read enough about female psychology, writing and female game design books to come to the following conclusions.

>All playable characters must be girls, not a single dude, hopefully of multiple skin colors/races
>They get free attention from npc simps of average manlet dudes
>They have a love interest of a tall handsome dude who happens to be secretely rich
>There's not game over, instead you get stuck in the game and cant progress
>Enemies don't move, but can attack
>There's mechanics of farming
>There's puzzles
>There's mechanics of gathering stuff like popping static balloons
>You end up as a poor farm girl, but end up married to a rich high status guy by the end of the story
>The villain is an evil queen who simbolizes your bitch mother
>There's some master who grant you the tools to win the game, hopefully is a granny (represents the wisdom of age)
>There's simbology using flowers or other shit of your first period (traditionally use roses being punctured their thorns)
>You have magical animal and support friends along the way who solves the dificult shit
>Everything uses simple inputs
>Everything dificult is auto win after a few failed attempts
>The tutorial is like a mobile tutorial, there's not text, only some icon with a hand telling you where to go or what to press or what to do
>There's really not secret mechanics you need to discover, everything is told using a cute manual that resembles a HS kids notebook with teenager text
>Gameplay is basically playing support/healer and using non direct forms of combat
>Enemies can't hurt you
>Nobody loses, everyone wins, this includes the enemies and npcs as well the player
>There's no gore, except it looks like hello kitty version of mortal kombat
>Everyone is nice, but there's always some assholes (rivals, villains)

This are my conclusions about making a game for girls.

Is Call of the Netherdeep an unironically good adventure despite the Critical Role setting? The core storyline is essentially a mix of Greek mythology and FromSoft-style eldritch degeneration. It is all about following in the footsteps of a god-chosen hero who descended into madness in an underwater horrorscape.

This illustration looks like it could be from a FromSoft game.

The Netherdeep itself is:
>an extraplanar labyrinth of lightless trenches, infused with the distorted emotions of a demigod who is both the Netherdeep's prisoner and jailer.
The characters can even redeem this demigod, though doing so still requires a fight.

Is FR a good setting?
Are the Realms a good setting? Not so much for any one edition, and maybe not even for D&D specifically?

There's a lot there to work with, and I keep thinking back to a Youtube video I saw. In it, the speaker is talking about the socioeconomic implications of the landscape, and talks about how the geography makes sense. One of the things he mentioned was that it makes sense for the desert of Anauroch was properly situated below the High Ice. But I know that the desert is the result of magic worms sucking the life force out of the region, and the ice is the result of an arrifact necklace going out of control. But that might have been added later.

Apparently there's reams of detail from 1E and 2E that just aren't referenced anymore. And while I hated the 4E changes, it was more the specific implementation than the awesome idea of flying islands and a giant fuckoff fanyon.

Could you take a selection of various sourcebooks and lore and run a solid and up-to-date campaign anywhere in Faerun without having to do so much work you might as well make a new setting?

/gurpsgen/ - GURPS General
previous thread >>85535069

GURPS is a modular, adaptable system, capable of running a wide range of characters, settings, and play styles with level of detail varying from lightweight to completely autistic.
Optional rules allow you to emulate different genres with a single system, even switching genres within a single game.

A nearly complete archive of GURPS books can be found by those who pay attention to file extensions.
Never post direct links to the archive anywhere.

If you're wondering where to start:
The Basic Set covers everything, including a lot of optional rules you probably won't use.
A genre guide can be found in the archive, under Unofficial > GURPSgen. It tells you what extra books and articles you may find useful for many common genres.
How To be a GURPS GM is a good read even for players.
GCS ( is an excellent character builder software with page references to all the books and the option to export to both Foundry and Fantasy Grounds.

Yugioh was awesome
The card game Yu gi OH, was awesome, I feel like we won't ever have something alike, and I'm not talking about the game today which in my opinion is fucking boring, with cards filled with text and so many things happening that if you don't know the game is very hard to get into.

I'm talking about how awesome yugioh used to be I miss doing small cute combos with change of heart then sacrificing, I miss hoping for a monster reborn or a mirror force to turn the game around as your oponnent had a high level monster in play, I miss calculating the attack points necessary to make my opponent loose in a certain turn. I get that yugioh back then was kinda basic, but that is exactly why it was so great, it was easy to get into and fun to play, I know that the competitive aspects were messy back then, that some cards were meta and there was nothing to do when playing competitive, but at least you had the option to try and play out of meta and still have fun, nowadays if you play yugioh out of meta, or you don't know many cards you are royaly screwed, and in like 5 turns you may loose... What I'm trying to say is, I wish a game like old yugioh was around, cause new yugioh is terrible and not fun at all, at least for me. I know there are formats built around old yugioh cards, but is not the same as a whole game with this characteristics, mainly cause people that play these formats, already know the best decks, and sometimes the cards due to being old are hard to find, so the magic is kind of lost there. What do you think? Do you agree? Do you disagree? Do you hate me?

Cyberpunk Scenery Inspiration
Anata no warehouse, Kawasaki Alex Knight
Hey lads; I hopefully this kind of thing is allowed here for worldbuilding purposes. I want to create a diorama somewhat in the style of "traditional" cyberpunk, i.e. stuff along the lines of Neil Gibson, Ghost in the Shell, Akira, Cowboy Bebop, Hard Reset, Shadowrun, Blade Runner, The Ascent, and all that. So, a little bit less glaring neon, a little bit more grime, but a nice balance of both. I think Noir is also in the mix there somewhere. So, anyway, I'm looking for inspiration images to base it off of. I'd love everyone's input on the kinds of stuff you'd want to see. Dioramas, concept art, tabletop builds people have done, sketches, 3D renders, whatever - as long as it fits the mood.

I actually suffer the presence of such a smooth-brainoid in my group.

Guy is a wheelchair-bound alt-righter(cool guy), so I can't actually kick him from the group.

Why must I suffer so?

Amateur Game Design and Homebrew
Aug 22
This uprising is doomed. Welcome to the August thread of homebrew discussion on /tg/. This is part of my effort to get people discussing classic homebrew discussion and assist the board in general when it comes to their game design endeavors.

>Who is this namefaggot?
I'm just a dude who writes games and likes the homebrew discussions on /tg/. I frequent a few threads, but I'm just here to facilitate discussion.

>Why should I homebrew?
/tg/ products are fairly unique in that it's actually pretty simple to make them these days, with a plethora of products to assist in making and playtesting your game. Making your own games helps understand why games are made the way they are, as well as being fun to do.

>What you should post
Ideas for games, games you're currently making, updates to your own games in broad strokes, and any homebrewing for existing products that don't get much attention. Discussion about the above is welcome. Post good, be good, and look over others products, they care if someone looks more than anything.

>Oh No! The Thread is Over!
Have no fear, the thread will resume at the first of every month. If you want to make another during the month, go for it. I can't, and won't, stop you. If you want to make a thread on your own game, go for it!
One suggestion: Don't add General to the name.

> (A online whiteboard with tools to help organize yourself)

/gengen/ - Genesys General
Feel Free to Screenshot
Ultimate PowerEdition

>What is Genesys?
Released in November 2017, Genesys is a pen-and-paper generic/universal RPG system and toolkit by Fantasy Flight Games and EDGE Studio, using a refined version of the system presented by their Star Wars RPGs (Edge of the Empire, Age of Rebellion, Force and Destiny). Its central mechanic is the Narrative Dice System, using pools made of specialized dice to create narrative results. The intention is for the system to be a highly flexible narrative system, adaptable to most any conceivable setting and premise.

>"Twilight Imperium: Embers of the Imperium," a new space opera splat based on Twilight Imperium, is set to launch by the end of 2022

>Where can I find the books?
Check the Online Extras pastebin below for something useless. The core book is the only mandatory book.
>Do I have to buy the fancy dice to play the game?
Only if you want physical dice to roll. There are plenty of free dice rollers available online, now including the official dice roller app on mobile. Check the Online Extras pastebin for links.

>Player-made Genesys settings

>A quick and dirty primer on how the dice in Genesys work

/smol/ - Miniatures games with little dudes
6mm epic battle
>what is this shit?
a thread for games at finer scales than the usual 28mm/32mm that have some interest on here but don't individually get enough love to warrant their own generals. this includes both army and fleet scale games. I expect this is mostly going to be fantasy and scifi (although not exclusively) - /hwg/ can answer a lot of your questions about historical games specifically.

>the subject of discussion
The whole range of smaller scale wargames, from about 15mm scale down to the little 2mm/3mm stuff, ships and aircraft, discussing rulesets, terrain and minis. these games often have a lot more in common with eachother, in terms of rules, sourcing minis, and building terrain, than with 28mm games from the same publisher or set in the same universe. examples of games that might qualify:
- Epic, Warmaster and Battlefleet Gothic (have lately been in /gwsg/ but that thread is mess right now)
- Dropzone and Dropfleet (used to be their own general, got folded in to /awg/)
- other army games like HoTT, Horizon Wars, Laserblast
- the Spartan games: dystopian wars, uncharted seas, firestorm armada, halo wars, etc
- mech games like Heavy Gear and CAV
- other fleet games like Full Thrust
- feel free to add to the list

Look at them. Look at them and thank the Perry Twins for simply caring in a way no zoomer with zBrush ever, ever could.

I love the approach, it's like that seen in 15mm and 20mm kits. Monopose plastics on a sprue with maybe only a few shields and spears not attached.

Whats the current state of Malifaux?
So i played the shit out of the game during 2nd Edition but during the M3E shitshow launch everyone i know fell off. From ordering like 20 things and just getting a faction fate deck to parts missing from kits along with covid, their warehouse flood and so on it seemed very much to be a "we'll put it on the backburner for later" deal.

We had some interest when the expansion Malifaux Burns got announced but i remembered that today and googled it to see it came out in october? so i guess interest still wasn't that high.

But how is it doing now? did they finally give up on the failed meme of The Other Side and reinvest those resources back into M3E?

Game Mechanics You Like or Hate
What are some obscure or not so obscure mechanics or game principles from TTRPG systems that are intuitive or you appreciate very much?
Alternatively, what are things you find irksome?
I have been playing a system called Ironsworn for some time now and I can think of two things easily I like about it quite a lot. There is not a gamemaster for us, meaning storytelling is much more cooperative and there are no real forced plots or arbitrary events on us and the game is more cooperative.
Another small mechanic is one where failures actually lead to experience points over time, which is genius.
I dislike forced combat encounters that aren't productive (like getting attacked by wild beasts) and I also dislike the concept of gaining XP by doing one thing and learning an entirely new skill later.
Asking for a friend because I am trying to figure out what my perfect TTRPG game would look like for reasons.
