gamestores attract trannies (and other loser neckbeards, etc) because they have trouble collecting a group of likeminded people (due to bad hygene, etc). So they outsource the groupfinding to the store in return for patronage . To be fair more then a few groups of normies do this and it worked okay when normies didnt frequent the stores as much but with the normies came the trannies and so on.


TRPG's as a hobby have been dying since the 90's. SJW are the least of their worries oddly enough as they are just the maggots attracted to the sucking chest wound of an edition war no one won, giving away the OGM and then not maintaining it, the advance of computer gaming, smart phones and the rise of the "phone gamer". The Zak stuff is just hilarious icing ontop of the cake.

Cursory bit of extra digging, because accusations are flying at some other people I've never heard of, but it's literally just faggots and SJWs who beat their chests about how much they love precious minorities and making the industry more inclusive. They're faggots with pronouns in their twitter bios.

They're apparently calling this shit "missing stairs" which is some newspeak bullshit about how some people in the community need to be managed and circumvented. It's a really retarded way to try and make their petty high school drama and gossip sound really high brow and lofty. In reality, this Holden guy sounds like a shitty male feminist and John Morke is another #resist Trump-hating, tranny loving retard.

They're so desperate to try and clean up the industry and better it without realizing that they are the cancer fucking everything up. They are the one pulling scumbags and psychopaths into things to be part of some glorious indie clique ruling class, and then they bitch and moan when they fuck everything up, tank products, and dismantle companies.

The dude had one of his porn star friends tattoo his arm with her list of medical conditions. Look at this horror show:

<low blood pressure

<ovarian cysts


<intolerance to codeine and morphine

<stomach problems






And at least one more long one on the side of his arm we can't read. Note, she has low blood pressure AND an irregularly high heart rate. Figure that shit out. What's really concerning is that I've met people like this, and they are always fucking mental. I have to wonder if their psychosis turns their bodies against them, or if the forces of nature just naturally reject cancerous subhumans.

>Doing 2nd edition age of sigmar books for Skaven and Breton- i mean Flesh Eater Courts

I know the idea is these are, comparatively, selling at a huge loss but going to the effort of a box that comes with its own book with lore and battleplans only for it to be gone seems kind of shitty and its not just an age of sigmar thing. This happens for everything to a degree.

What do you think about this tactic? does it drum up interest in sets? is it mean to in the longrun shill more 'start collecting' kits which have recently gone up in price but only contain the regular off the shelf kits that have been around for years?

I mean shit if you actually play Age of Sigmar in particular the only Skaven starter box is for clan pestillens and it seems like Skaven players from what i've seen are as sick of them as the rest of us are sick of ultramarines or sigmarines at this point.

Let's start a Keyforge thread! Opinions on the game? What do you like about it and what do you hate?

I don't like the absence of deckbuilding but the game itself is great!

Is there anything stopping me from buying a few decks, pulling out cards that I like, and building my own deck? I understand that there's a Rule about not doing that, but are there any mechanics reasons I couldn't? A card game without deck building seems pretty lame, to me.

That's seems like a really dumb and really wasteful way to stop people from mixing up the cards, but it works. Also, what's with these card names? This reads like asian t-shirt engrish.



No local store around me has more than three players and the inventory they initially stocked has not been run through, similarly all press and advertisment online has died off from what I can see (I used to see it several times a day, now I see it zero) so unless there is some hidden mecca of Keyforge activity it flashed in the pan and died as anticipated. Someone else can come in and prove me wrong but so far it looks like I'm keeping my hat uneaten.

You have a short memory.

>This just means that Amazon can shit on its competitors and many lgs owners can try and jew their customers even harder as they try and keep up with the secondary market

This is correct. WotC, either at the discretion of Hasbro or internally, has decided that selling to big box retailers like Walmart and Amazon is more profitable than courting LGSs and the communities they develop. Their decision to sell to those stores at all burnt many LGS owners (one video in particular had an owner discussing how he would have people enter his store and accuse him of jewry for listing boxes/packs at MSRP because Walmart was selling them at cost), so I can't say I'm surprised.

I think non-TCG games are still small enough to avoid becoming a cog in Amazon's hellish cyberpunk megacorporate structure, but I wouldn't be surprised if some (((startup))) for distribution of board games buys up BoardGameGeek and forces everybody to get a Google account and a wrist-inserted microchip in a few years.



>Theyve shown named tokens can be a thing

>The tokens aren't named Llanowar Elves, which removes a potential interaction



I remember ages age, MaRo wrote an article on design, and used "The Fictional Plane of Communisto" as an example, complete with a picture of Stalin, and how they'd hash it out for flavor and mechanics. I can't find it. It was written around Kamigawa, perhaps 2006 or 2007 around there.

Is there a cracked copy of this nice program? Aeon Timeline is ideal for managing rpg campaign timelines, events, characters and custom fantasy calendars.

Unfortunately, it costs 50 fucking $, which isn't really a purchase a common GM will ever do.



Chances are there might not be a crack readily available. I'm usually not right though, so here are some alternatives in the interim: https://alternativeto.net/software/aeon-timeline/



Unfortunately, the alternatives aren't nearly as good, it seems.

Happy Sanguinala to everybody, dear neckbeards. Or at least, it will be soon! In the name of the Adeptus Terra, I say that lets use this moment to be friendly between brothers, and lets just be comfy.

And to remember the great sacrifice that the great Sanguinius did in its famous last stand against the Arch-traitor, and so the great effort that their sons, the Blood Angels, do to prevent "Non-autorished accidents". So its important to make the population conscious of the grave problem that its the Red Thirts, and its consequences. And no, dear citizen, the Blood Angels doesnt have a "Black Rage" or worse thing, that Chaos propaganda, or just bad rumors by dumb people scared of them. To think otherwise is heresy, and it punishment is high!

Luckily, A new animated series starring the Blood Angels is being made now, so lets see if with this there will be more animated series & movies (That are good, and arent Ultramarine-Tier)

Lets start this new general thread!

>Book starts off with a flashback to the Legio Solaria's founder Mohana Mankata VI. She's a female of a Knight House on the planet Procon. Because she's a woman she can't became a Knight. When the Great Crusade arrives Procon immediately joins the Imperium and holds a festival for the visiting delegation. Despite being banned from taking part in a horseback riding contest, she does anyway and wins.

Does this sound Italian.

>Can you keep the brain's original personality into a golem robot or it is ust a necromantic accesory to get feats and stuff on golems?

That's a question we don't have an answer to IRL. There was this one head transplant that was going to happen, but then it was canceled. We still do not know just how much personality is in the brain.

As for the feat transfer, I assume a lot of those have to do with knowing one's body. You can't just train yourself to use your body in specific ways, then transfer to another one, and be expected to pull the same results.

>Also, what if you hire the best sculptor of the kingdom and give him a diagram of every organ in a human body to recreate it on stone before animating and then turning into flesh?

Why sculpt? Why not make it step by step out of concrete, and animate each part with a different stone-to-life spell.



Well, what I really mean is preserving a brain alive and placing it on a golem.

The only thing I like about Pathfinder is opening the door to do very weird and rule allowed mad science.


I've been collecting a bunch of army men recently. Because the brand that was selling the best looking army men I knew didn't have them in tan anymore, but LIME GREEN, I threw my fucks away and bought a whole bucket of them to make my own tan army men. But the thing is: I haven't painted army men before. My plan was just to spray paint it and they would be painted forever, but I don't want to ruin them by being careless.

Long story short: How would I go about spray painting army men? Do I need a primer? What kind of paint do I use? Will the paint last forever?



The information stored in your organs isn't so substantial that it would warrant more then a footnote. However the question is impossible to answer, because what exactly is being fed to the brain and what would that information be processed as? You couldn't really know. A full body cyborg is easy to visualize perceiving the world filtered through a synth or something but a Golem usually made of some mundane substance and being moved around via magic? Who knows what that would look like.

A person's personality would be the same in the short period but long term it's entirely a guess what would happen, assuming they aren't completely slaved to the body stopping them from being able to do anything forever.


I have a autistic homebrew setting where magic and mythological creatures came to exist one day in the modern world. So you have magic societies that were transported from other dimensions, people with psychic potential showing up, mythological creatures appearing, zombie outbreaks, and other cheesy doomsday/fantasy stuff showing up. I GMed some games in a time period much later than the calamity, but now I wanted to DM a game that takes place in ehe early days of what happened. The later day stuff was described as being more stable slightly as most of the dangerous stuff was cleared out, but there were dangerous areas still. So the setting was more about dealing with other factions and some goofy stuff.

My main question is how weird and creepy should I make the early days of the calamity? I was planning on having standard fantasy stuff showing up in modern areas, but I also planned to have eldritch monsters and cults as well that showed up. The original inhabitants and their descendants are resistant to magic, so should that later some things? I have planned so far to have a town where no one speaks their own names because the people that do end up dying in gruesome ways as people slowly forget who the person that died was outside of mementos. The game will be focused more on survival than combat stuff.

You know the drill, post games that pertain to the board's interests, the lore surrounding them, and ones that are fun to play together using online multiplayer.

Oh, and before you ask, your average Tacticool Shooter game can easily be reflavored to handle a Cuphead campaign. Personally, I'd go with Savage Worlds and limit dice explosions based on EXP gain, and use the Superhero supplement to add some cartoon logic into the mix, though I'm sure others have different suggestions.

You're exactly right and I actually have some old versions saved for exactly this purpose when I have time one day mess around with that. One version is a truly ancient 0.92.4 version, which was prior to any public CVS. I forgot where I dug it out of. It has the color filled 24x24 .xpm's (pixmaps) and as well as the monocolor .xbm images.

Crossfire is definitely more of a solo game, as the multiplayer interactions are fairly primitive, beyond chatting. Where other players make things interesting is typically the mess they leave laying around that you might stumble upon. Following other players was also an good way to learn tricks like the giant save zone I mentioned. There are some maps designed to require 2 or more people to trigger some map mechanics and advance.

Since it's a pretty rare version that was near impossible for me to find, if you're curious or appreciate this kind of old art I can upload them later as is, but be warned that all large image files are all chopped into 24 by 24 pixel tiles. And good luck actually getting this version to run, it has ancient dependencies. Linux distros that old tend not to like emulators and modern hardware either.

I should really upload this to the internet archive.



what is it, anon?

Just a fyi ESA is running a D&D 5e game right now.

Now I don't usually keep a constant measure of my maps, but I generally have an inclination of how many days or hours walk away something is, or can make it up on the spot.

I dunno, maybe I'm stressing about nothing.

Path of Exile is still going strong; now with memory dungeons.

What are your reccomendations for military strategy board games? I'm not talking about figurine based games, I mean proper games that use tokens and are actually deep and don't require me to spend 50 bucks on a starter set. The only one I know of is Stratego and Chess. Can't consider Risk a strategy game because winning because you got a good roll isn't strategy.

Look at the modules for VASSAL, most of those are some sort of strategy, most of the rest some sort of tactics.


Birthright as RPG/strategy has economy, politicking and random events (and some character-scope adventuring) between and during wars as such.

You do more then just roll dice.


Holy shit all you fags don't know what good wargames look like.


Check out Paths of Glory (card driven wargame about WW1, 2 player), Cuba Libre (4 player, about the Cuban Revolution), Command & Colors Napoleonics (2 player block wargame about the Napoleonic Wars), and Combat Commander Europe (hex and chit wargame about WW2, 2 player)

What /tg/ game does fog of war well? After all, communication breakdown is a prelude to invasion...


I've been patiently waiting ever since this thread was made for someone to mention axis and allies. I was raised on that game, and I know in comparison to risk, it has far more strategy to it. Only drawback is keeping hold of all the pieces. There's hundreds of little men/tanks/ships/planes and when you have four people playing is just too easy to get a piece or two knocked off the table. I played the original, but found out a few years back they made smaller instances, like The Battle of the Bulge, for faster sessions. I'd guess you're looking at a four hour match, seeing as the OG version took around 10-20 depending on how many players and nations you had in the mix.

You know what this board is lacking at the moment? A Star Wars Thread. So let's make up for lost time and have one.

What's your favorite game out of this franchise, /tg/? Have you ever run Star Wars games straight from homebrewing other systems? Gimme your stories of a long time ago, in a Galaxy far, far away.

Thanks for the advice


In Edge of the Empire what's a good skill to pick with Politico's Well Rounded? Ranged (Light) is a lock and want to grab Force Sensitive at some point (for sense/overwhelm emotions) so discipline/perception wouldn't be worth it..

Isn't there supposed to be a difference between a sith and a dark jedi or dark force adept? The whole sith distinction thing always seemed a little weird.


In FFG's system is there any ability on a non-force user's tree that boosts force use in some way?


Yes. Only in the Old Republic are "Dark Jedi" and "Sith" one and the same most of the time (Presumably there are some Jedi that fell to the dark side but didn't join the Sith, it's certainly an option in both KotOR games.).

>Sith are their own tradition that split off from the Jedi millennia ago who have a few unique techniques like Sith alchemy

>Dark Jedi are Jedi that fell to the dark side or were taught by fallen Jedi

>darksider or dark force adept is just a catch all for people who use the dark side of the force
