wouldn't that just make it a huge stature-shaped piece of flesh?

Like, I assume, when you turn a human into stone, so do his internal organs, and inside he has a stone stomach, stone guts, stone heart, etc. And a statue only has solid stone inside.

So when you turn a statue into stone, it'd be like this one huge slab of muscle, or skin, or whatever else.

ya a dumb 56%er for sure. The "point" of history is whatever the pencil pusher wants them to be. There are no unbiased people, and the people most suspect for bias are exactly the ones telling you they are unbiased. Events have to be observed to be written about, observed events are interpreted thru a worldview that seeks to reinforce itself and discredit others and that's even before we are presuming actual political aims onto the people writing history. History (and who writes it and the struggles of writing it) is a fascinating subject and one that seems to be lost on you.

Don't play Star Wars d20, it's awful in tons of ways. Play Saga Edition instead. Saga Edition isn't just a good Star Wars system, it's legit the best incarnation of the d20 system. It has a full 1-20 adventure path that's nice. /sw/ is working on a Player's Guide for it to give basic info on character creation.

>>>/sw/29201

The RPGA standards (file 2) for it recommend 28 point buy (23 for droids, equivalent to a 12 in con) and max credits. I also recommend using the background system from the Rebellion Era guide in place of destinies, since destinies are a really weird subsystem.

There's also this fan man intro adventure I found. It seems nice, though I've never run it. There's a Tatooine Manhunt conversion floating around out there, but it has so much of the original module in it I'm not going to post it (search: "Tatooine Manhunt" "saga edition" conversion rar. There's a mediafire link in a forumpost to a rar full of adventures)


 No.410291

Meant to say the RPGA character creation recommendations seem reasonable.

The Tatooine Manhunt conversion isn't in that collection (though there's some useful stuff in there like the Saga Index, an excel file that has a database showing what book everything is in). Search for "1-3Tatooine Manhunt Saga.pdf" to find the pdf.

Is there much to consider for how Legacy Dredge works? I saw two lists, one with and without mana. I don't have LED's so I can't make an optimal mana dredge deck, yet I lack a lot of the staples for the manaless version (Chancellor, etc). Does it really matter? Can I just make something like "low mana" dredge and just flip cards until I win?

 No.410621

>>410588

>Does it really matter?

Yes. When playing Manaless Dredge, ==NEVER MULLIGAN, AND ALWAYS CHOOSE TO DRAW ON TURN ONE.== Your first turn is always "draw a card, enter your end step, discard down to seven, pass." It has a little redundancy in the form of Phantasmagorian (read: as long as this is in your graveyard you can discard 3 or 6 cards at instant speed) and extra explosiveness with Whirlpool Rider, but the deck has no way to fight against on-board hate. You either win, or you do nothing.

LED Dredge is more resilient, but might be a turn-and-a-half slower overall. Breakthrough is deadly, as it reads "discard your hand, mill 4" for U.

Both decide have a combo element, with manaless being more "all-in." Either way, learn to git gud with Ichorid and Cabal Therapy. A lot of times you will live or die based on how you use them.


 No.410623

>>410588

Manaless is probably the cheapest way to play Dredge in Legacy, though they kinda set it back by banning Gitaxian Probe. My list that I ran before that ban looks about the same, though I didn't run Whirlpool Rider. That first list is also missing the actual "win the game" card, which is Balustrade Spy. The moment you get to bring one back with Dread Return you just win the game.


 No.410637

>>410623

>>410621

I'll probably build towards LED then and just proxy them (nobody at my store plays legacy so it'll just be a deck I have)

What does gitgud look like? Is it knowing when to animate Ichorid, or just know what cards to therapy for? Mostly I wanted to make it because of BFB/Dread Return/Flamekin combo from back in the day but I guess he isn't used anymore?

Why does Whirlpool show up in one list but not the other? I'm assuming he's basically the creature version of breakthrough

Don't be a full-on troll. Dicking around is good and fine but make sure it's all in a spirit of good fun and goofing off. Do not have them instigate conflict inside the playgroup. If you're deliberately trying to start shit at the table it's obviously going to go south and no one wins.

He won't squirm, he'll start a fight. These people are very vocal about things that displease them. If you want to laugh with your pals at an angry tranny, go for it, but if they don't appreciate this kind of amusement, it likely won't be fun for anyone involved.

So ye want to know what perils await us on the high seas lad? Captain Ku is here to tell ye the blasted bilgewater rats that infest the seas. Next be them poor murderous worms that would murder ye and rob ye, not always in that order either, The Pack-Rat Gang. These barnacle bastards are worth as much as a rusty coin but just as numerous too, can't even manage a weapon less they made it themselves. Watch ye ass round these poverty ridden vagabonds, they be desperate and ye be the way out. (The Pack-Rat Gang are murder-hobos using homemade weapons like flogs and shivs, they're dangerous in large numbers and a damn well insane with nothing to lose.)

Well me matey we got 2 sea-salted seagull dropping headed our way so Old Ku workin ye to the bone today and unless ye gone blind even the clams can see them tall spires of pigswell and mud atop that brass dome, The Mohawk Clan be on the attack! Now the old sea tale goes they be in debt to a big ole scaleback that be fond of mischief so they pilfer the fastest crafts they can find and come ridin in to mess ye up like a manticore in a hogpen. Lately they been stick'n with boarding harpoons and blunderbuss, but them crabby biscuits of bicepts and boiled ink gonna learn a thing or two about attack Ku's ole crew! (The Mohawk Clan are Followers of Edaphos The God of Mohawks, these raiders cause high-octane chaos everywhere they go with Harpoons and Blunderbusses being their favorite Weapons, think madmax&waterworld raiders aesthetic but instead of post Apocalypse its actually just their culture to dress that way.)

Captain Ku here with me latest tale of the last group of sods me crew sent to a watery grave, them rippahs never looked so hungry before I doubt there be any bones to reach the ocean floor. First blimey bastards was me own brotha-in-law's crew the Black Market Smuggler's Union, Betsy I told ye neva marry that halfshelled hellcrab of a lawyer... sista neva learns. Now ye maybe confused so me gonna try and give ye the rumrun, The Black Market Smuggler's Union goes into them places ye shoulnd't go. They be raiding graves of unholy creture the bone-daddy slain while back, the daemons. Them foolhardy suits think the price be worth the risk until bone-daddy be sending ye ass the lass that be killin in mass. They be gettin the lass anyways cause the slug for brains be misusing the bone-daddy's key to enter the backdoor. So them blubbering backwater bullshits then decide to flee here into me own stretch of sea risk'n us all The Ghost Ship Phlegethon com'n across me shore and kill'n me crew. Remember this well lad, wands won't save ye from the Spectres and we don't cross the Bone-Daddy! (The Black Market Smuggler's Union are Collectors of artifacts and demon grave robbers, they use the Ancient Trowel to be protected from curses and Wands for Defense.)

If that boat-blistering bastard wasn't enough he brought some "friends" but I know who they be and what they done, The Temple Marauders had to go least Bone-Daddy be not the only God that be com'n to kill us on the seas. Them blasphemous bellends have a knack raid'n the temples of various Gods as if its no deal, I've seen jellyfish with more brains then a lad in weird glow'n armor with a special stick try'n to pick a fight with Gods. (The Temple Marauders are a rogue expedition of the Mage Guild that raid and defile the temples of the gods, They are geared in salvaged power armor and armed with a Grand Staff.)

Me have to admit to ye lad to see the Ancient Asylum with them did break me heart a lil lad, me mother was once apart of them til Bone-Daddy called her home to rest. They be once heroes of the olden days but the price for mere men fighting a daemon was a toll they couldn't bear. They be lil more than murderous puppeteers nowadays, they don't have a brig but ye will find with them a eternal prison after death. They put sorrow into me lad, they remind be just how far wPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Today Lad Captain Ku tells ye a proud tradition to come from the fallout of thee Pirate, Drink ye fill and grab ye knife for we be betting on ye tonight. Barroom Gladiators from the City of Knives be in me blood on me Father's side, actually he win'n a fight be how he met me mother after kill'n her stalker ex from the Devil-Knights. The way it be back in the day Suija was once a pirate haven under Tomi Noroi The Greedy Emperor, outside of taxes the lot really had no worry til the old man was called home by the Bone-Daddy. Once the young Laddie Shokushu Noroi seized power the pirate war began and those that escaped took with them the whole gambling on drunken knife fights. it became a sport all over the world with regional champions and plenty of recruits will'n to join. There be entire crew of young lads attempt'n to fight with only ye knives in hopes that ye can become a battle-hard'n gladiator too. As custom tradition the knives that be used are Jambiya and Dragon Fang Dagger, some claim in spite of Suija. Then again father did say something about it the best damn knife fight of all time be'n between Kantoku Tonbo and Doku Gisei using those knives. The World Heavy-Blade Championship Tournament was where me father was called home by the Bone-Daddy to rest, after win'n by decapitation he died pass'n out in the booze barrel during the celebration. (The Barroom Gladiators were the Native Pirates of Suija responsible for the nickname “the City of Knives”, had a custom of using knives and being drunks leading to many a knife fights that became common enough that a gambling ring was made for placing bets on the outcome. As they fled from Suija and scattered it became more of a gladiator circuit yielding champions in any place piracy thrives. The Official Knives of choice are the Dragon Fang Dagger and Jambiya in honor of the draw between the Future Warden and the Future Commodore, hailed as the greatest knife fight to end with both men surviving.)

Speak'n of Me father's victories the poor bloke to get his block chop'd off over me mother was part of a crew me own crew have had to fight before, cursed heathens and wretches is what you would call the Devil-Knights. Even Betsy's fishfood would not work with them, rumors whisper'd are they want to bring the end of the world and nearly have.

Pretty soon lad ole Ku and crew will be meet'n some shady representatives from the West coasts, ye'll need to be alert if ye want to leave outta there without a scurvy ridden blade in ye.

First they be bring the Assassin Guild, last me heard the rumor be they lost to the Duelist Guild and fled with some taken to the seas. Poison be their thing so mind the blades least it be too late, one cut and it be called home to rest by the Bone-Daddy for you. That be double for the crossbows they got too, as if fire wasn't enough lad they poison tipped it too. (The Assassin Guild are the defector branch of the Duelist Guild that use Poisoned Blades and poison tipped fire bolt crossbows.)

Next in the line of whale swell and sea scum be the Novavich Family, jealous bastards trying to use the weapons of the northern cults to control the north cults. They think if ye see ice in the sea that be their territory, that usually leads to hard-shield bastards with boarding axes headed for yer crew. (The Novavich Family are the Northwestern Nobles that wish to seize control and take over the north away from the Cults, often raiding any that dare pass thru their territory with Boarding Axes and Parmas)

Now watch ye treasure and hide ye rum when ye see the The Demolition Crew, fun hate'n cod-dicks that rather destroy all ye own then let ye have it. they be cross'n the fine line with me nerves cause they don't just ruin ye for fun, it means some chumbutter whore paid a hit on ye and that then lead to ye find'n out who did it and have'n to choose to risk yer crew in a war on 2 fronts or pay'n off them sack of scurvy to attack sandy bitch that's bout to pay them.

If me seem to be very specific its Betsy fault I know, she just had to screw over Lizzy to be pirate princess at the sailors academy prom leading to a graduating class civil war and the loss of 2 ship. Damnit that both me galley and me galleon lost. On the bright side me crew noticed that Rippah been following us round since the in-law became takeout, we may just need the lil hero yet. (The Demolition Crew are Professional Saboteurs that sow political discourse and destroy trade-goods of rival nations for profit, normally armed with a Mace and Warhammer.)

The Chronicles of Ku aside this is the full list of pirate types thus far, and actually Ku does have a role in the game. I don't know how this is going for you guys but i'll try to finish the culture overview before I move. -KL

You've never read the Gor books have you? Tarnsman of Gor through Priest-Kings of Gor is a lot less sexual than some of the other fantasy fiction published in the mid 60's.

> a knock off that is like 100% how the typical "character interaction" goes

Are you retarded, Tarl Cabot literally flies the first slave put into his possession to her homeland to be reunited with her family in relative freedom. Tarl actively aspires to eliminate slavery and subjugation from Gorean culture and refuses to treat Talena with anything less than gentlemanly dignity when she stops being a bitch long enough for him to not worry about her foiling his poorly thought out plans, something she calls him out as a limp-dicked pussy for and instead of keeping her as his slave as she actively offers herself as once shes' come around to his earth-man ways he refuses, properly marries her and sees her put upon a throne to rule as a free woman.

I say this as a guy who bought some of the Gor books specifically because I wanted to read slave erotica and got a marginably passable Princess of Mars pastiche instead. Don't be a faggot, if you haven't read a book don't act like you have.

I know this post is two months old but DnD originally was a supplement to change the context of Chainmail which is a wargame. You wanna play it like it was originally played then you just grab chainmail and play it along with the 0D&D book. But since the 0D&D book is hard to get here is this handy pdf instead.

I like Knave (fite me), I think it's a great game for oneshots with people who have little to no ttrpg experience which is my usual gaming group because I can't find a group that commits. I know it gets a lot of hate here, can anyone tell me why they don't like it or what they'd change about it?

Third offensive looks good but does it push the story forward?

>>409590

To my knowledge, the general synopsis is:

>CA ramps up the fight on Paradiso

>kicks everyone's ass; puts Acontecimento out of commission

>steals some relic the Teutons were guarding

These recent books don't include any new rules or unit profiles; the only reason to get them is for the fluff. I don't know anyone who has it, and I haven't seen scans of it pop up either. Given how piss poor Uprising's writing quality was, I wouldn't expect 3O to be any better.


 No.409636

>>409620

It's better than Uprising (not that it's a high bar to cross), but still not quite to the standard of basic books, also quite a bit of repeated/filler material.

also I should have the scan done by the end of next week
