Make the BBEG believe, unrepentantly and without remorse, in something that the pcs find disgusting. He could worship satan when the pcs are christians, could believe in the notion of all other races being slaves to the pureblood aryans, etc. If you use that as a starting point, you can cre

Here's something I like to use. Just simple: set them against the player's morale. For example: (and I hope none of the WiI players are here: get back to the thread!) the "big baddie" I have planned for Wars in Immoren is a Cryxian warcaster, Sheerah Ravenmane, daughter of the Satyxis Queen Skarre Ravenmane. While she does have the general "necromancer pirate" theme of Cryx, I have the knowledge that /quest wants to keep every single person alive, no matter how inconsequential to the story. So I made her cause the most collateral damage possible: she does not know the meaning "of subtle," she will kill you and raise you from the death just to skull fuck you. She is so sadistic even other satyxis are scared of her.

tl;dr, Use the normal stereotypical BBEG for your setting and twist it to make it seem horrifying to your players.

I have come with a minor question about Twilight 2000 regarding pointbuy. How far does the standard 32 attribute pointbuy go in terms of character power?

How powerful would characters be with 35 or even 40 points?

So who's hyped up for the new Skaven models and lack of battlefield domination from clan Skyre?

Clan Pestiliens is getting a whole lot of new stuff. Same goes for Clan Moulder. And there's something for Clan Skyre too...

I'm all hyped up.

Does anyone have more information on Nevreans? The Vilous wiki leads me to understand that they're a short, flightless bird race with teeth in their beaks(wat.), but they're also more technologically advanced than their other contemporary races.

and Trancy Mick's friend KP-YOHSI says.
"The sexual role of Nevrean is opposite to that of human.
It means that male Nevreans are girly, colorful, short, and not that strong.
In contrast, females are tough, not colorful, tall, and strong.
Also, their ways of thinking are different."

I think it's what makes the species so cool, with how the females are masculine and how the males are feminine. On first refsheet on this thread it does mention male and female, but it's just not very noticeable. I'm glad they updated it though to make it more noticeable on new arts.

Ugh. The year was 2012, This was my fifth run-in with traditional tabletop gaming. One of my friends turned me on to it. This was also my first multiple-person campaign. Anyhow, we all got to the GM's house, and he told us we were playing a Pathfinder campaign.

It was a bit of a shock, seeing as I brought a 3.5 character sheet. But he showed me the SRD online and I was able to figure out how it all worked. Someone else brought Pathfinder character sheets, a godsend, and we all spent two hours making our (level 3) characters. My friend assured me that these guys were pro's and that I should follow their lead or something close to that.

The party consisted of 5 people

A Human Urban Ranger (me) who (stupidly) took two weapon fighting with two bastard swords (My personal favorite weapon) I also ended up rolling three 18's before the DM got me another set of d6's.

An Elf Summoner who put everything into his Eidolon (and let it do the talking while he rode around on it's back. He was the friend that turned me on to tabletop gaming)

A Tiefling witch (who buffed everyone's actions, not much to say)

A Human Antipaladin, he wielded a greatsword and was one of the few people roleplaying. He ended up getting a stat array when he couldn't roll higher than 12 using the d6's.

And finally, The Alchemist (also Human). He was absolutely crazy and awesome. He and I stuck together throughout the entire campaign.

I ain't gone. Server is winding up last story arc. My attention is getting the new server set-up done. Custom maps don't build themselves. You'll probably hear from us once the changeover is done. Taking time however as we're also working on integrating elements of the conversion mod we're doing into the server- namely the dialogue system which allows people to speak in the DF languages, and have race specific chats.

Crosspostan from 4chan :V

I come to you because I am in an interesting situation, with an opportunity. You see, in my 4e game, normally, I play a Seeker. When the player who is often away, is, I play her Archer warlord as well.

Well, the DM finally got tired of her shit, and kicked her from the group. So I thought, rather than continue playing her character, I'd make my own Warlord/other leader, and have some fun of my own!

The group currently is a Centered Breath Monk, a Fighter that generates temporary hit points like crazy, a Seeker, and an archer warlord. My current plan is pic related, especially since we're about to go and fight us some Drow. We're lvl 4.

tl;dr, what leader role character should I make to replace a absentee player?

Okay. I want to start a little something on here, where players create classes, character archetypes, or just post builds that aren't necessarily powerful but that they just plain like.

If I may start: I would like to create a psionic-type character class for Pathfinder/D&D 3.5 that would take ability damage to use its powers, and heal such "burn" at an accelerated rate (possibly extending to hp/ability damage at later levels, and/or allowing the swapping out of hp healing for ability damage healing). What I really come here for is the name; from there I can PROBABLY make the class on my own (though I'll want some others to eyeball it and possibly playtest it). I'm going to start working on the class right now, as a matter of fact.

Pic related, it's kind of the inspiration for this idea.
>>
No. 10396 ID: 30df25

I like the original 'patch' for D&D 4E to include Monks (this was before the psionics handbook came out for 4E). It was a dual-strike Ranger that used 'unarmed' as the weapon of choice. Swap out the class feature "Hunter's Quarry" for something that will improve AC a bit and improve movement speed at each tier.

I lost the actual document; it was in my 4E Player's handbook as an errata page I glued in, but I sold that book off at a gamer garage sale.
>>
No. 10450 ID: 5b4b49

Actually if you rewrote the class, I think that flavor-wise a Monk would make a very kickass version of that most elusive of 4e combos: Martial Controller. At least if you go by 3e's ideas and maybe make a lot of "move Speed squares and make this attack" powers.

I dunno, maybe I'm being silly, but I think that'd be neat myself. And yeah, Martial is explicitly "non-magic", so maybe some Monk powers would, as written, be not allowed. But, you can take HOW many hits from a 1[W] attack a day, at level 10? BEFORE even second-winding.

Anyone else interested in making a class, for any game that uses such things?

I'd look into something simple to start with. I think it was D&D 3.5 that was the super entry-level one, but I can't be sure. Regardless of what you choose, be prepared for some spreadsheets and math before the fun starts. A lot of charactergen stuff requires it.

Grids were introduced because all the tapemeasuring was a major timesink and a *pain in the ass*. Letting a neutral referee make spot judgements for speed of play was fine-in the old pvp games when there *were* neutral referees. In D&D letting the DM "eyeball it" never ends well for the players.

Stone Soup time.. with a difference.

Rather that discuss how we all horribly died for the millionth time, I figured we could make use of the arena function.

There won't be tiles, but we can see who can kick who's ass. I can to multiple opponents on each side, including multiples of different monsters(some run in bands so I can specify ___ band), and I can battle uniques as well. I can also specify a spawn from a certain part of the dungeon like vault 7. That will spawn monsters appropriate for that area. I can't chose the specific monster that will spawn from that area.. but I can say how many. I also have to name for each side. This also means I can specify a unique to fight on one side.. then say do vault 7 for the opposing team.

Go wild.

When giving monster names, please give the full name. Especially on uniques. I can't just put Blork. I have to put Blork the Orc. The full name of what they are called in game.

I'll be doing an example run first. Three gnolls versus Sigmund. Make your bets now before scrolling down.

Going to run a fun little game, I'll need 3-6 players

I will choose the most applicable characters, bonus points for character sketches!

to create your Astranian determine your 4 stats

Action: for fighting and body things
Guts: for how much bad stuff you can take,
Smarts: for smart guys stuff like computers and fixing things
Looks: for talking and being pretty

each stat starts at 1, and you've got 8 points to spread around

Also you'll need to pick 3 things your Astranian is really good at
And 3 things they are really bad at.

Each Astranian starts with a set of clothes(gravboots not included), 10 vapins(money) 2 tech items, and 2 extra batteries to fuel them

and finally you gotta write a short Bio about your Astrannian.

[Medical check on recieving response about how much damage that amount of stimulants would do.]

akk grew up in a family of politicians in the Kumatan (Jackal) capitol with a pampered, high-class life that she never much cared for, loathing the gridlock of politics and bureaucracy and having to play nicely with everyone she met. She is inherently a good person
