How does your setting do angels? Most people either do humans with wings, BE NOT AFRAID, or just glowy lights, but I'm curious about further variations. If a god isn't much like the christian god they would probably make way different angels. Like a sea god of impartial justice might make giant sharks that implacably hunt sinners with their shark powers and devour them while leaving innocents alone, or a god of the earth having angels that are life-size mountains of white marble fighting a millennia-long geological war with heretical continents.

Apart from using auto primer (lel) I'd recommend trying a base other than black if you want the best paintjob. Black is dark and edgy looking and hides missed areas well but thin paint won't sit on it for shit, meaning you'll end up having to cake on multiple layers of thick paint to actually cover it. It's a real beginner's trap and mostly just a holdover from 40k players who didn't know better. I'd recommend trying white primer instead (and not one for cars).

Do you really think D&D fans would need the D&D logo on a movie to see a fantasy adventure set in a kitchen sink world with sorcerers casting fireball and devils carrying bags of holding? That they've been holding out, showing little to no interest in fantasy films (aside from LotR and HP), waiting for the official D&D film because they're unwilling to settle for any substitutes?

Is anyone expecting the upcoming D&D movie to be a quality film because of the D&D license?

I binges on Laundry Files when I found the series. Well written, and I did enjoy it.
By the end though, the darkness really started to come through. The violin, the civilian casualties, the compromises made. That there's humor too made better at first but worse at the end.
Long way around to saying I don't know now hat I'd do with a Laundry Files rpg. Play it straight, as the doomed bureaucracy only delaying the inevitable? Change it up to heroes who win after all? Gloss over all the collateral damage, or run with it?
Played straight I think I'd find Unknown Armies a less dark game. At the least the scale of suffering is smaller.

the daycare centre thing is too true. during 5th edition 40k, we had some sweaty spergy kid getting dropped off down the road, hed turn up with his dads janky old 3rd ed ork codex, and a bunch of his dads old models. not even a coherent collection. but hed turn up to our beginners games on saturday morning and just fucking hang around til closing time, because he had nowhere else to go.

in some ways, i didnt have a problem with him being there. it was his dad i had the problem with; dropping your 12/13 yr old off in a city centre with only enough cash for a greggs sausage roll until you pick him up at 6 in the evening is shitty.

the bigger problem was the people who called themselves "veterans" as if buying an army 10 years ago and playing a few games entitled them to a table every fucking night. theyd constantly clog up your time, and waste your day, then put off new starters with their "advice".

in some small way, i totally get GWs approach now, which is to just sell people the game and get them the fuck out of the door.

The problem is that GW are being tards on how to handle it. Abby’s overrated and even when they try fixing him they keep making him look like a fucking joke. WFB had it better but fucked it up when they pissed on their fans during End Times.

I know this is obvious bait, but:
1. Non-human races aren't necessary in a good rpg system, but it's not necessary to NOT have them for it to be good either.

2. Race-locked classes are stupid; it's restrictive and that's what CCP chinese scum use in shitty MMOs.

3. Points buy for races that aren't human implies that they are better options than humans--and if they're going to have trade-offs that put them on par with humans (because that's how you balance a game if you have other races), then what's the point of spending points if it isn't an overall improvement? It would be a waste of points, and it's better to have all the race options cost nothing in character creation. If you're intent behind this is to keep out freakshit character players, then grow a backbone and keep them off your table. It takes the most basic form of human interaction.

What did he mean by this? The races as classes sounds like what they did in older editions of D&D where the Dwarf and Elf were their own classes while you your fighter, magic-user, and thief be played by humans. The "set of points" thing is something I haven't before unless it's like how you used to become a Dragonborn where you made a pact or something and transformed into one.

Yes. We were hunting a calculating warlock who stole our wizard's spellbook.
Everywhere we went, we heard how people actually really liked this guy. His men respected him, and he created a home for the homeless. We eventually hunted him down, cornered him, and beat the shit out of him. Turns out he was a pretty good guy, but he made a deal with a elder evil and needed to collect spellbooks as a sacrifice.
I offered him repentance. If he disavowed the elder evil he served, he could join me in service of Sune. He agreed, and Sune (or one of her servants, idk) removed the elder evil from his body which killed him.
As our cleric of Kelemvor performed funeral rights on him, I resurrected him with Revivify. This absolutely pissed of the cleric of Kelemvor, but the "warlock" was now free of his curse.
That guy's name is Jakob and he now travels with us. He is indebted to Sune, and I am trying to teach him how to become a proper cleric of the goddess of love.

that seems weird. The clone body has the exact same strength score as my old one (aside from a small racial bonus)? it would make sense if they were like "your mental statistics remain the same, but here are Sorshen's physical stats:"

What is the most generic possible fighter backstory?

Do you think prestige classes are a good idea in concept, if not in execution? I think they are better than archetypes because they let multiple classes access the same iconic concept for interesting combinations.

>> No.77869080
Quoted By: >>77869207

>>77865135
D&D3: So this is where true prestige class begins (Unlike the bard from AD&D and Kits from AD&D2). From a game design perspective, I think the designers were going for this trade off - sacrifice portion core class power for more specialization, and allowing GM to give Players a moment of tactical thinking in their level ups with the combination of the feat, skill, multi-class system (note: the first Prestige classes were in the DM guide, not meant for players).

However, as time went on this concept of trade offs were kinda lost on everyone, and it kinda degraded into more power to add onto the core classes. For example, by 3.5 you got classes like the Archmage and the Hierophant which is like a natural progression of a wizard and a cleric; it doesn't really penalize your choices as like the Arcane Archer would.

So what I'm trying to say is that it really depends on design of the class.

>> No.77869207
Quoted By: >>77869955

>>77869080
I think Prestige Classes were actually meant for DMs, to be given as a reward to players or to flesh out the setting. But the design worked against this, since level progression worked on strict XP values, and there were highly specific and unnatural requirements.

>> No.77869232

>>77865135
I like PrC better personally. Part of PrC was you had to earn them, and they were alignment locked. With archetype, you just grab it and go. I like the idea of either earning the specialization or just sticking vanilla. I also felt like them making PrC that generally aren't just for a class means every time they have a neat idea they print it. With archetype I feel like they have to try and keep a parity of options for all classes.

>> No.77869955

>>77869207
I kinda agree that most PrC with more liberal requirements, for example the Dwarven Defender or the Assassin is lot more useful for both GMs and Players. One problem with PrC of the 3rd edition era is that they had compete with a growing list feats that were really customizable, and were more useful as GM reward for players.

Are the concepts the Warp embodies shaped & defined by the thoughts and emotions of sapient beings, or the other way around?

>> No.77865356

At first, it was sapient beings that influence the warp. With the warp becoming turbulent enough during the War in Heaven, however, simple intelligences formed out of the chaos itself and began to accumulate. As they became more powerful, they were in turn able to affect material space, and thus affect sapient beings.
