I think if a level 1 can be 16 and olympic athletes are the most phenominally talented people who have spent years training that maybe you're compressing it a bit. A peak olympic athlete does not have a carrying capacity of 10 pounds more than a commoner unencumbered.

PCs are freaks, did you forget that? Class levels are for freaks only. Only a freak can take levels in fighter, cleric, or wizard. Commoners get levels in soldier, acolyte, and adept. Only a freak can be 6 standard deviations from the mean. Each stat point is roughly equivalent to a standard deviation.

Let's take IQ and map it to intelligence for example. The average is 10 int or 100 iq. The PHB and monster manuals require an int of 6 in order to speak and understand a language. A 60 IQ person can maybe tell you they are hungry, or distinguish a cat from a dog. An 8 int character is dumb, and an 80 IQ person is the same; they probably were in the slow and remedial classes, or barely scraped by with low Cs and Ds in every class. A 110 IQ person is smart, and a 120 IQ person is a genius. Less than 2% of all people have >120 iq

Following the same mapping, strongmen and top athletes would be physical geniuses, 6 strength would be anorexics and cripples. And carry weight/encumberence is completely different from raw strength. Anyone who climbs mountains, or hikes, or runs marathons can tell you that a single pound is significant. 10 extra pounds in your rucksack as you march 20 miles is a nightmare. Climbers and hikers look to reduce GRAMS on their gear, because every bit matters. Soldiers argue about who will carry the machine gun, which is ~15lbs heavier than a standard rifle, and is considered to be a massive burden, so much so that machine guns are a 2man crew: one strong as fuck guy to carry the 15lb gun, and another strong guy to carry the ammo.

Also look at the effect of encumberence: fatigue. If you sit at a weight bench, you might be able to pump out infinite reps at weight Y, which will be lower than your maximum lift X, but at Y+10 you'll start slowing down eventually and then won't be able to continue. In order to be able to do infinite reps at Y+10, you will need to become much stronger than X+10.

>A 110 IQ person is smart, and a 120 IQ person is a genius. Less than 2% of all people have
no. 15 IQ is one standard deviation. The IQ to int mapping works pretty well.Slap a 0 on the end and it works well. But then you realise that actually 120 is actually where you start to notice "this guy is kind of smart". And 12 is where the person is discernably smarter to the point where it makes a measurable difference. If you were right then someone mechanically no different (10 and 11) are obviously measurable in real life. Someone with an INT of 19 is 6 standard deviations above the norm.

Physical stats are the same. An olympic athlete is several standard deviations out. A pound might be the difference for a marathon runner but combat isn't marathon running and they aren't strength characters. Top long distance runners aren't just lean, they have little elastic bands on their arms. But melee combat isn't that. It's short (1 minute usually) bursts of action with lots of walking 3mph in between.

Veterans have 14 strength and the guards of cities have units of them. You need 15 strength to wear plate without your combat effectiveness reduced. So you're saying that basically no one ever wore plate? Firefighters wear 60lbs of gear. Soldiers carry body armour, rations and stuff. By core rules each point of str increases your unencumbered carry by 5 pounds so that machine gunner is 3 points higher. Lifting weights is very different from encumbrance too. Being able to lift 10 pounds more doesn't mean carrying 10 pounds more. It makes a little difference.

Hey guys I'm making a futuristic campaign using FASERIP, I'm creating characters and stuff but finding it hard to locate super hero/villain pictures for the npcs. Filtering through different sites is not very productive, so I'm wondering if anyone has any good tools/sites/ways to acquire these.

I saw this and decided to try it as well.

I'm creating a homebrew universe for my D&D campaigns. Ask me anything you can think if and I'll give you the answer. If you want to read more about the world before you ask, I'll make some broad points below.
This universe is being built of a very grand scale. Even I don't have everything locked down yet, but I've got a decent foothold.
There are several planets, and the players will have access to a starship that they will wake up on. After they are woken up, they will quickly realize the ship is failing and they have to fix it. Once they fix the ship, it will be revealed that there is a space station a few light years away(the ship is capable of warp, which I can explain if you'd like. It's not based in real science, but I'm open to suggestions 😊
There are a few star systems that they can choose to go to at first, provided they become able, and each of those will have several worlds. I have a main storyline planned out, but I can't go too much into detail openly as I have players who might be reading this. No spoilers 😉
There will be an earth like world that shares similar history and is a slightly futuristic world by our real world standards, but with many of the races of the d&d world. Sharing the same solar system is a traditional d&d like world with much the same history as cannon forgotten realms stories, with some additions and changes. There are many other worlds as well, but I'm sure those will come up if you're curious.
I've added some elements to the universe, such as a crystalized form of the Weave known as Arcanyte, a sickness brought on by too much exposure to high levels of magic much like radiation, and a last ditch casting method called Soul-Weave Extortion.
There are over 50 playable races for my players, which is probably an overload but I don't care. Most of them are already made and put in legitimate books, or released by Wizards of the Coast but there are some that I've created on my own.
There are many other things, but I'll leave you to decide if you want to know more. Thanks for your time, and I'll try to answer any questions as quickly as possible.

In the Ruins of West Virginia (I began working on this setting in 2017, so dont give me shit because Bethesda stole MY idea dammit) an empire crumbles- that of Vandalia. The reincarnating God-King of Vandalia has yet to be found in his 13th form, and insurrection among the city-states of the Rainforest Kingdom leaves the economy in shambles. In the absence of leadership the ruling authority scrambles to lead their people. Settlements beyond the urban cities are forced to constantly rebuild in the face unrelenting monster and raider attacks. Soon, something is going to give.
As a world building exercise for my tabletop setting, I'd love to do some Q&A and try and find questions I didnt think of and answer them, filling in gaps that players might find. Thanks for any help you might give. Mwah.

Saw a couple of people play it and saw plenty of reviews. Seems pretty fun and faithful to the games but not worth the current price unless of course you love DS and the way this game translates them.

The one thing the boardgame lacks is the epic and grand feel of the overall world. It's like playing a stand-alone area of the video games.

I made an item and a background/quest theme for it. Completely unrelated to your super thing, bit why not put the "I made a thing"s in the same place.

The entrance to the beholder's lair is sealed. The entrance seal is a mural depicting various gods having dinner, including the gods of justice, the sea, war, and death. Each god has an empty offering bowl in front of them. The mural is engraved with the words: S E R V E J U S T I C E A N D E N T E R

Placing things in the offering bowls of any god causes a snickering sound to echo through the room, but no other effect. Placing offerings in the offering bowl of the god of justice causes the room to fill with cackling, maniacal laughter.

The door will open when all offering bowls are filled with ice: serve just ice.

You journey deeper into the lair, trapped with more lame riddles, pie ejecting chests, squeaky rubber skeletons(immune to blunt damage), and banana peel lined chutes.

You finally reach the beholder, who dreams of being a comedian. In his possession, he has the cursed Book of PUNishment.

Book of PUNishment:
The wielder may read aloud a joke from the book as an action. Every creature with intelligence 6 or greater that can hear the joke, except the reader, must make a wisdom save with a DC equal to their own intelligence. On a failed save, the creature takes 1d6 psychic damage and 1d4 intelligence damage. Intelligence damage may be restored by a Greater Restoration spell.
If at least one creature succeeds the save, the wielder may not cast spells requiring verbal components or use this ability again for 1d4 turns, but may take all other actions normally: during this time, the wielder is busy explaining the joke.
Once per week, as a full round action, the wielder may cast Hideous Laughter (wisdom save DC 15) on any number of targets within 30 feet.

I dunno, if black queen rushes to g8 then white queen can take it but that means the king or rook can take it in retaliation. It's nearly bed time and I can't think further ahead than that because I suck at chess but I don't think that sequence ends the match without a few more moves.

Black can't move his king from there and needs to block bishop g7 to stop the checkmate. Black queen g8 doesn't stop that. Black knight d4 stalls for one turn, which maybe buys time to maneuver black rook or queen somewhere, but I can't think that many moves in.

Hey guys I'm brainstorming ideas for an upcoming VTM game and figured I'd see what other people thought.
It's set in 1860s Wilmington NC, just before the American Civil War and I plan to run it through to 1865 after the war ends.
The players will be a newly shovelheaded pack of Sabbat created to aid in the capture of the currently Cam city, then prevent it from being retaken.
I've looked up IRL timeline stuff for the area and fairly close maps. I also looked up Cannon cWoD timelines to get as much background fluff as possible.

If you have any ideas let me know.

I don't generally like sabbat much, but in your situation I think it's a good fit. That will probably help transition your greenhorns from hack n slash to melodrama nicely.

I'd say one thing that may help you is make a list of old-timey era appropriate Names for you to apply to NPCs on the fly. Also, maybe look into some old business names or make some up. Just flavor suggestions really, you're already on the right track with looking up the geography and history of the place. Being able to pull random period appropriate names and places out of you hat will help further keep the setting feeling fully fleshed out.
