    Time dragons, in the last number of paper Dragon Magazine, or the chronotyryns, from 3x. Ed of Fiend Folio. In Pathfinder you could find the hound of Tindalos. Also you could search something in the wiki of the Doctor Who, or reading the tv trope about "clockroaches" https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ClockRoaches

    We are talking about the industry of speculative fiction by non-English-speaker countries, aren't we? If there is a new D&D Oriental Adventures for Asian players, the "kemonomimi" (animal-ears) as should be a PC race, or do you think hengeyokai are enough?. The RPGs are little sector of the entertainment industry if we compare it with the videogames, and most of them are made by Americans...

    There are some differences between the glossary of Spain and Hispanoamerican, but not too much. Here in Spain we can see Hispanoamerican telenovels, "los culebrones" (the big snakes, the nickname for the soap operas, because they are very long, with many episodes). A Taiwanese company could publish its own third party setting for D&D, and Japan and Korea, but continental China is different....

About metagame their racial traits are to used like illusionist spellcasters or stealth classes like rogue. I guess the solution may be the racial traits to be replaced by an optional list of racial feats, like in Pathfinder 2. ...

    In a fictional world you are allowed to do some horrible actions, but when it set in our real world then the things change. For example in Game of Thrones you can destroy a cathedral with Valyrian fire but don't dare to publish a novel or script for TV where a group of black-metal fans start a fire in a temple. Let's imagine a fan-fiction set in Vampire: the Masquerade where the anti-Spanish...

  • 12:53 PM - Sadras mentioned LuisCarlos17f in post RPG Attack Site Closes As Author Outs Himself
    @LuisCarlos17f in D&D you can play drow and play them following Lolth or you can play them having abandoned those darker teachings. In 2e there was an adventure (I forget its name) but you played the humanoids defending your home against the evil adventurers/ heroes who were invading your home, slaying your kin and taking your treasures. In the BECMI series there was the Gazetteer Orcs of Thar which provided a table of XP for pillaging, slaying and capturing slaves. Hell, one of the stories I'd like to run is where the main PCs are illithids protecting the elder brain from a violent uprising of of ex-thralls helped on by the Githyanki. In Vampire, you have the opportunity of playing kindred with outrageous views, opposing mortals and the supernatural alike not only in combat, but in politics, religion and more - nevermind the inner struggle with the beast within and the effects of immortality on such mind. To have this desire to continuously apply real life ideology to a game seems a little too rig...

    LuisCarlos17f That seems reasonable under a nine alignment system. Good, Evil and Nature are the three most important factions in D&D-world, with a possible Cthulhu/Tharizdun/Far Realm as a fourth. Under the three alignment system I'd place Nature as neutral. This is a different approach to Tolkien, where nature is very clearly good and the forces of evil, represented by orcs and Saruman, are strongly anti-nature.

    Just one. The Sassoon Files. A Cthulu sourcebook set in...1920s China. There is no real risk of censorship unless your book features China. As far as I know, they've never censored any other RPG books, and lots of undead books have been printed there. Because it was ABOUT 1920s CHINA. If you want to see it that way. It doesn't change that, for example in video games, World of Warcraft had to change all their undead models and Rainbow 6 (modern shooter without any supernatural content) altered their skull icon for indicating kills. Its not that china disallows undead in general, but there are several requirements you have to observe when you have them, including in the art. We are talking about the industry of speculative fiction by non-English-speaker countries, aren't we? If there is a new D&D Oriental Adventures for Asian players, the "kemonomimi" (animal-ears) as should be a PC race, or do you think hengeyokai are enough?. Careful, Asia isn't just Japan.

On the other hand dubs and productions made in the Bogota-Buenos Aires-Caracas-Mexico-Miami-Santiago circle freely move between both continents and gain widespread recognition. Spain's Spanish is just too insular, and lacks the prestige that -for example- the RP accent has to make up for it.

    Spanish isn't harder than other Latin languages, but with the subjunctive verbs. I dare to say it because I have tried to learn someones with the web Duolingo. German has a harder grammar, and Russia is worse because also its alphabet is different. On the semantics side, Spanish needs more information to convey a message than English does. For example if you have to translate "I'm bad at studying and I could use your help." Which of the six possible constructs -each one with different meaning- should you use? You need a lot of contextual information to decide. That is more work than many translators bother to do. Some would only take the script and just guess. This is a problem with the translations of some games, like Shantae. (It's atrocious, Shantae talks to friends as if they were strangers, talks to authority figures as if they were close acquaintances, and talks about herself with male adjectives and nouns) But even with "good" translations, a lot of these are loaded with Iberian locali...

    There are millions of Spanish-speakers, but we aren't enough rich to buy all. You can see in many free-to-play online videogames there are translations to different languages but not for Spanish. I have another theory, Spanish translations require more work, some other languages don't. For other languages you can easily take the plain text in English and just straight translate it without paying too much attention to context. So the result is either a trainwreck that mixes/ignores gender/closeness/person or is more expensive. Many times this is done in Spain for videogames by people who just don't care and make stuff up or that abuse from localism and low register that just doesn't work in other countries. This leads to games that only work in Spain -if ever- so many developers just don't bother. For D&D to get a hold in many Spanish Speaking countries, it would need two translations, one in Spain's Spanish and the other in a more neutral dialect. (Or for it to be done in Argentina) So... there...

Try fight with toy weapons by plastic and you will notice the bat'leth is horrible 1d6/1d6 P/S damage. -4 attack roll -2 AC Reason: Probably the dumbest fantasy weapon ever imagined. Look if we are going to examine 3.5 Weapons based on effectiveness, I have a lot more to complain about than the bat'leth (which is admittedly a terrible weapon, though the mek'leth is not so bad) but that's not what the OP asked.

    I don't like when those monster characters share ideas by Nietzsche about the ワbermensch and the christianity as a ethic of slaves. I'm not going to comment on everything else but just want to focus on this. As with humans, with differing and sometimes opposing ideologies, why is it so strange to have that same struggle of ideas within Vampires society?

    You can enjoy the free speech to report the wrong actions by other people, but I advise when you criticize then do it with the same tone like somebody of your own family or town, to show what to be fixed or improved, not to promote hate like toxic people. Don't worry about genetic code by your descendents, maybe they will be half-blood (most likely in the cosmopolitan capital cities), but about their moral values. Reporting racism, homophobia, or machism (male chauvinism) isn't enough. We have to defend the respect of the human dignity, the pillar of our rights, or we will fall in the dark side of the Force, the rebel against authority will become a new tyrant. Nietzsche said: "He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPtMgsN8Tpo

  • 01:37 AM - Dannyalcatraz quoted LuisCarlos17f in post The urban fantasy market seems awfully stagnant
    We can't forget the urban fantasy has been very popular in the television from decades ago. For example comedies as "Bewitched", "Genie in a bottle" or "Sabrina the teen witch", but also "monster of the week(/season)" like "Charmed", "Buffy vampire slayer", "Grimm", "Supernatural", "True Blood". Some players don't want urban fantasy because is too close to our real life, and they would rather to imagine they are in a different world, with other culture. If you live in a big city, the buildings are boring for you, but the forestal zones are enough "exotic". * WoD is more fluff than crunch, and the metaplot in the RPGs can't be like before internet. See also Forever Knight, Friday the 13th: the Series, the aforementioned Kolchak, Dark Shadows and so many more.

    Maybe we are in the beginning of a golden age for RPGs because the bubble of the videogame industry will burst relatively soon. More people want to play with the imagination and create their own fanart stories. A collapse of the video gaming industry seems unlikely to me - there might be a temporary drought of interesting titles due to the shift to the next console generation, but otherwise, it seems, video games do quite well (especially if we factor in mobile, too). Still, I think the rather accessible 5th edition of D&D, in conjunction with the rise of streaming, crowdfunding of interesting indie titles and a bit of nostalgia seems to bring a lot of people old and new to TTRPGs.

    My opinion is a true challenge playing superheroes with the d20 system because the challenge rating and the value of XPs reward are broken when characters can use too powerful extra help, for example high-tech. Creating an adventure isn't easy if a PC is a street fighter like Green Hornet, Green Arrow, Batwoman, Daredevil or Hawkeye, but other is a cosmic power like Superman or Captain Marvel. Starlord with only a shot from his spaceship could kill a kaiju as Godzilla, King Kong or the ones from "Pacific Rim". That is why we have DMs/GMs. I tend to treat RPGs as cinema, not simulation.

    "LFQW" means, I guess, "Linear fighter, quadratic wizard". In the beginning the fighter is stronger than wizard, but later in the highest levels the spellcaster is very much more powerful. Thanks for clarifying that! Never bugged me for a moment, though.

    The crusader had got a random system to recover spent maneuvers, and this was too complicated to be used like nPCs by the DM, but maybe like a solo boss. 5th ed tends to use a "Recharges on a roll of x+ on a d6" for NPC mechanics that aren't just a set number of times per encounter. My opinion is the first step to reintroduce the martial maneuvers could be new subclasses, and later something like the pathfinder archetypes when some class features are replaced by others..(gladiator class from Dark Sun would be an example of D&D version of Pthf archetypes). We need to differentiate between maneuvers with ki power source, or magic. Ki should be a power source like arcana, divina, primal magic, or psionic. In 5e, Ki is explicitly a kind of magic. Splitting magic into arcane, divine, primal, psionic etc is very much a 4th ed thing, not 5th ed. If you're going to do that, why not put ki back in psionic? Martial adept classes can't be only fighters with martial maneuvers, but they also need their ow...

    The megacorporations can be an antagonist faction in lots of stories of speculative fiction, but the abuse of the cliche may be to become really annoying. Sometimes I miss some work about a dystopia where the economy is monopolized by the state, where the businessmen and CEOs are former politicians or high commissioners enjoying their revolving doors, and they don't worry about being competitive because no rival brand is going to steal them clients or suffering the consequences of their mistakes because we are who are going to pay for the broken plates. Sci-fi stories tend to be about the society they are written in. If anything the megacorp concept will go out of fashion because people crave escapism.

  • 08:50 AM - Bagpuss quoted LuisCarlos17f in post Cyberpunk Genre RPGs
    * Were there rules about genetic engineering for "transgenic" humanoids in Cyberpunk 2020? Have you thought about the impact if we find the secret of eternal youth and the retirement by old wouldn't be necessary? To find a new job would be harder for just linceced, and the ascend in the company when the boss always will be there but if he want to create his own new businessmen. Biotechnology was in some of the later Chrome books, same as in Shadowrun. But transhuman was mainly about going to full conversion 'borgs, brain-in-a-box type thing. The in scenario "Never fade away", in Cyberpunk 2013, Alt Cunningham, a netrunner and girlfriend of Johnny Silverhand, invented the Soul Killer virus that could create a digital version of somebodies mind. It was used on herself and she became the A.I. "Alt" which featured significantly in setting (a poster of her was on a wall in the original announcement movie trailer for Cyberpunk 2077).
