He likes Goblin Slayer and it's a good, easy template for low levels (amazingly, the kids are also in favor of 'osr' difficulty instead of superhero freakshit. They've been watching Dungeon Craft on youtube).

However this weekend he told me they invited a girl they know to join. She's into anime too and says they shouldn't play Goblin Slayer because it implies all goblins are evil and that's racist. I don't particularly want her anyway since I suspect all the boys will be simping for her approval, though I haven't seen her photo so maybe not. What do?

I literally don't give two shits about my retarded RPG game next to my kids development. Games are tools that should teach you something. If not then you are waisting your time mentally masturbating like a loser.
I get you probably have Asperger's since you are posting here but games are really not that important.

How is this insulting? Half of 4chan posters are autistic spergs. It's just a fact. If you think children's pretend games are important enough to argue on Korean basket-waving forums about then yeah. AUTISTIC. Also, you may be right about me being somewhat of a boomer but having kids shift your priorities. OPs question was kid related not game related.

If what you're asking for is like the colored blade I did:
>Paint it black
>I painted from purple to pink using about 5 or 6 colors.
>Wet the top 80% or so of the blade, depending on how far you want the effect to go
>get some purple paint on your brush and "jab" it lightly into the water on the wetted surface. You want the paint to start to lightly defuse from the brush to the water. It should spread out a little bit from that area
>repeat the process with other colors, working your way less down and sticking more around the tip as you go
>to get two colors to intertwine more and blend at the seem, use two different colors while the surface is still wet.
>to get the two colors to appear more distinct, let the surface dry between coats.
>if the edge of the effect seems too "harsh" or jarring but hasn't dried yet, get a little bit of water and paint it along the dry part adjacent to the wet part, allowing some of the paint to flow in a soft gradient.

For your blade, you may just want only a few colors that are more vibrant, like a color shift between green and purple and it may make more sense to start with a light base color to let the colors pop better.

>> No.77087158

I would add:
>try getting a retarded for coating the blade, instead of water - it should allow for smoother blending over longer period of time

He's a great example. A great example of someone who's only contribution to the game is to make it more expensive for you to aquire cards to play. I have no problem with people who want to collect an artist, misprints, or foreign language etc. But if your motivation in buying cards is to remove as many copies from the market as possible so you can profit on on actual demand, then I have a big problem. It's the same mentality of people who bought up all the water, TP, and hand sanitizer earlier last year. Parasites in human form.

I'll start. The inevitables are a horrible concept, even in 5e which renged in their autism, because they are the literal embodiment of "lawful stupid" they gave free reign for the literal ruler of devils to possibly destroy the world through contracts. In other, (non-5e) older lore, it gets stupider, as trying to extend your lifespan can earn you a 10ft tall metal statue of doom. If it was only for liches and other degenerates, that would be fine, but apparently, it's also within their laws to smite down a ent who's done nothing but protect the forest or whatever.

Total newfag here. I’ve always wanted to get into Warhammer 40k but didn’t know where to start, and didn’t know if it’d be good. After watching Paul WS Anderson’s magnum opus Event Horizon and saw everyone up and down compare it to 40k, I realized I need to be more serious.

It was pretty neat. I went in with the connection to 40k already in my mind so I'm biased, but I could see the similarities/why someone would go "oh hey these are similar". I liked the fleshy walls and the one guy's post-vivisection, the effects were pretty neat. Weir looked pretty convincing as a chaos cultist towards the end with all the cuts and marks. isn't there a lost extended version with even more disturbing imagery or am I mistaking it for something else?

It and Eye of Terror are giving me more of an appreciation for the less human side of chaos in 40k. Almost makes me want to make little space ship floor panels for terrain.

It is a massiively broad universe so it is more about what faction or era you want to explore first. If you just want a run down on how stuff works you are better off just looking up lexicanum articles.

The Eisenhorn & Ravenor novels will give you a look at the Inquisition. These explore more normal life within the Imperium than other books tend to but focuses on heretics, psykers and Chaos.

The Horus Heresy will show you what the Imperium aimed to be during the Great Crusade if not for Chaos and presents a bit of a different world. The initial three & Flight of the Eisenstein are kind of the place to start. The First Heretic, Legion, A Thousand Sons and Know No Fear were particularly good from what I remember. Then it seemed like they started to just make endless filler novels. Expect a lot of marine and Chaos wank.

If you aren't looking to read, the Space Marine pc game and Dawn of War series are pretty great.

About 30 mins of footage was cut from the theatrical release because it was considered too gruesome. Most of it apparently involved the deranged murder orgy that involved the first crew. The spare rolls of film were apparently stored in a disused salt mine(!) and deteriorated to the point where they couldn't be salvaged once the film had built up a cult following.

How do you plan one shots? What is your process. Do you use an outline? I never know how to get my thoughts down and clear for when I plan oneshots and it always ends up in a mess and I can't stand it.

I write down 3 - 5 events / encounters, and then just yes-and the players actions so they'll get themselves there. The beginning is set in stone, and the climax is also already prepared. What's in between is flexible.
Usually it's got the following:
1) set the theme, introduce the team
2) call to action
3-5) the puzzle (a chase, cluefinding, a riddle, a dungeon, the fun parts)
6) the boss battle

>> No.77063786

just write down your thoughts as they come up, use something like a noteblock-app for your phone. you can sort out shit later

also remember to think of no more than 2 possible PC paths when planning: either they do as you want them to, or fuck everything completely forever. think about why they would do what

That's how you plan them. Writing them is easy enough as well, although it might be a little more railroad-y than what your players are used to in their normal campaign.

It's not that strict. There's a page I can't find where Florence thinks to herself about how she can strange someone else for taking up oxygen that hospital patients need.

I know 5e is popular and supposedly accessible for new players, but be straight with me:

How hard is it actually to convince players to try a new system?

Because it would be so much easier and more fun for me to GM with the Genesys system than 5e at this point.

Yea see my problem is that I’m trying to go the other way and it’s frustrating as hell, so how on board were your players with the system jump?

they play 5e
you already know they don't know how to read

>> No.77060818

5e is attractive because new players are typically normal people who like buying stuff. A lot of them don’t like the idea of playing an older/alternate game in which the most they can buy is the core rulebook(assuming it’s still in print and you aren’t just using PDFs or printing the books yourself). Players like buying dice, minis, splat books, spell cards, spell book holders for spell cards, D&D/3rd party brand notebooks, magic item cards, inspiration tokens, D&D brand plushies, D&D brand clothing, character artist commissions, digital books, game software, dice towers, rpg travel bags, dice bags, terrain, etc. At the same time I don’t know how hard it is to convert players to other systems because I started my group of friends with D&D 5e and now we play a bunch of other games to the exclusion of 5e and they are always having a good time. If I were you I wouldn’t support the internal connotation that players are “D&D Drones” by default. Sell them on the system/game, and don’t give them a choice. Be considerate though, design a campaign that you’re pretty sure your players will enjoy that you would also like to run then tell them “Hey I’ve been preparing [genre] campaign using [chosen system]. Lets talk about the notable features of this campaign and possible backgrounds for your characters.”

Read the novella just recently. not really a perfect work of literature, but the setting is so very moody and delicious, I love it. anyone run anything in it?

Its kinda like dawrf like humans living in the last redoubt of humankind, after all the stars have burnt out and dark eldritch creatures rom the lands, only a deep crater in the earth having enough warmth for anything to survive. Humans have gene spliced themselves and some have slight esp, but their are dark psychic abominations out there that try to lewer them out of the ast holdings of mankind, and even this Last Redoubt will eventually collapse with only their limited energy. 4 massive statue like monsters lumber towards the redoubt, moving only meters in the span of centuries, but they march ever closer to deliever man kinds final fate. Every now and then an adventure goes out, but they barely ever come back, and in too large of numbers the greater dark creatures destroy them outright, their eternal souls forever tortured. only sole or small parties may leave, and not much is known in the impenetrable, oblivion.

Apocthulhu came out last year and has the Night Land as a campaign setting towards the back of the book. It's pretty in-depth and comes with some good maps and breaks down everything. I believe the book also mentioned that an adventure might be published for it.

Here's a good interview about it:

There's also some good fan-made Call of Cthulhu resources for the Night Land on this blog:

Does anyone have access to a copy of the first section of the 5e PHB as an audiobook? I'm trying to introduce some people to DnD, but some of them have issues with reading large amounts of text, like dyslexia, so I've been looking for an audio recording of those 5-10 first pages that explain the basics for new players to listen to. I know the American Library of Congress made an audio book of the PHB, but I lack the disabilities to access it myself. Any help would be appreciated! Oinkbane for pic tax
