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.

https://www.heroforge.com/ has coloring options now, and you can register to save your figures. I've been making characters and taking screenshots of them in different poses. With a bit of creativity and choosing the right paint palette, even the fantasy type of parts can fit scifi settings, there's also some modern and scifi stuff.

and y'know... if you want to invest a money you can always use it for what it's intended for, ordering the figures for your games.

if you want your screenshot stuff to look that much better, it'll take some work in your image manipulation app of choice, to add light and shadows and backgrounds and stuff.

What's a Chessmaster, a Chess Scholar, and a Chess Savante?

A chessmaster has mastered chess strategy and knows the game of the board, making them a compulsive eye towards victory in predictable, set, established styles, marked by "Can I?" towards the contemplation of a challenge, with the response determining acceptance.

A chess scholar has never played chess, once, even online, but has studied the game through rules and manuals and histories, and never named their own form or else dead, the killing blow from another chess scholar. A chess scholar can always beat a chessmaster, by getting them to play chess, the better the chess player, the easier the victory. They are marked by "Can't I?" from contemplation from a challenge, their retreat determined by the response.

A chess savante has been schooled by their father, with a particular set of strategies imparted by the father watching the child's strategy and refusing to attempt to win, until the child watches the father's strategy and the pair trade, manipulating a chess scholar to place them with chessmasters as partners as chaff, taking chess players as bitches and punking chess scholars, the form being prison chess. The sign of a chess savante is, "Can't it, but should I?" at the sign one has been spotted, the signal that they haven't beaten their father at chess, hence they are dangerous.

All three strategies function along a triple set of concepts, the historical figure of the player in the other player's mind, the scenario the figure has been placed in to align or disalign the other player, and the reference to the scenario of setting placed into the other player as the enhancer of self placing the prior pair. This determines the transformative individual that you are placing into the other player, the benefit to the other player, and the tactical wit one is taking over the other player for the image forever after from that individual, among those that the first strategy touches with the benefit, or removes with the penalty.

The key to each strategy, is knowing how to break it. Only the father that taught chess, can remove the savante, by allowing the child to win, for a bet, typically a dowry for a marriage, to release the child from savantism in exchange for money for their children and family, the father's grand children, the savante meant for a spy, intelligence, counter-intelligence, or espionage agent (in various stages of criminality and legitimacy, a spy being a guerilla, intelligence being a criminal, counter-intelligence being standard intelligence officers, and espionage agents being established mercenaries that protect their past work through their acts).

A chess scholar can be defeated by a strategy being renamed, thus naming the chess scholar something else, on the board. As you've noticed, the chess scholar hasn't played, and can't play, so you need a savante, to drop the change play into the right zone, for the benefit to touch the chess scholars in the range of the individual invoked, therefore your position is visible as the victims touched with benefit, hence they have to demote and play chess, to survive, disenlisting.

A chessmaster is defeated by the challenge to play another live human being as a piece, by a chess scholar, always invoking Berenger's Syndrome in some form, known as a police brutality victim, a prison rape victim, a mob jump victim, a media piece victim, or otherwise a black slave from the Confederate era, also a Wiccan psychiatric victim (a Buddhist form of Confederate logic, despised by the Yakuza, Catholic Japanese that target Tong, Triads, Korean law informants, and Mossad Judeaken, other Catholic orders targeting Wiccans, namely the Order of St. Ignatius engaging, an order of German logicians made up of remedial students of literature). In each case, the piece, will commit fraud, the breaking of the piece's code, therefore undoing the plans of the chessmaster, the grander the plan, the more disastrous and public the defeat of the chessmaster. This is performed by a chess scholar, invoking the Yakuza, the association that violence should only be used on those that use violence in the course of social politics, and assert that this is the just case jurisprudence of society. A confirmed hit, will result in 'fail' being reported from the chessmaster, and the game will ensue. Most importantly, one does not have to directly invoke the code, to hide one's hand.

And there you have the magnificent bastards of chess.

We found a pot of brown goop in a cauldron over a fireplace. My cleric is interested in alchemy and herbalism but isn't skilled in these fields so he can't identify it. The party wants to move along but I really want to know what this stuff is so I dip my sickle and it immediately calcifies on the blade. Fascinated I foolishly start scratching it off with my fingers but I failed a dex check and cut myself. I took 5d8 poison damage and start hallucinating the mother of all bad trips. The fighter and bard do what they can to keep me alive while the rogue starts dipping her crossbow bolts.

D&D textwall sperg here. Got an idea, well two variants. If your players want to all be part of the royal guard/army they can go from soldiers to the king's trusted men. You'll need player buy in to be heroic heroes to some extent though.

Few ideas. Presumably the kingdom has problems and the wisdom of the chosen kings and their desire to do well means destiny doesn't do the heavy lifting. Have the players brought from wherever (unless they agree to all be members of the royal army or whatever) as mercenaries to assist with some goblins or something as part of a task force, have it go a bit wrong but the players kill more than their share and it works out alright. Now they're trusted by the king so he gives them a royal charter (or just more missions) to act as mercs in his territory so now they can make some good money helping people.

Spend the low levels having them do odd tasks to help the kingdom, but it's world and rep building. Have a few hints and lay down hooks. Have each adventure reveal a bit, that the kingdom is mostly happy but some people are bad news. At some point have them befriend a streetwise orphan girl. As guards they earn more trust as mercs they earn more repute. During these adventures as well as exploring the kingdom, culture, gods, reveal that there is some discontent among the greedy nobles/merchants who all want more, that there is a small criminal underbelly, and that while it's stable the bottom rungs of society do enjoy very little of the prosperity, make sure they understand the genie's wish. Then have the king murdered, if the players are guards have them go somewhere to get an item key to his legacy, perhaps he has found a rumour of a wizard's pair and the wizard created a decanter of endless water, so he wants to find the plans and use the magic to increase the water available to his people. Something like that. The wish is now fucked. The nobles squabble and the guards go without direction, crises like bandit raids are poorly answered and the guard morale drops, crime rises etc. The nobles cut the blue dragons a better deal and now it's an ancient dragon with a family helping it. The players can fight fires but after a few weeks it's apparent they can't save the town. Arad's head gets destroyed so only a true res will bring him back and there's a handful of people world wide who can do that. Have any that are nearby get bought out or have to flee a swarm of blue dragons.

But there is hope. If the players think to contact other plane or something don't hide this from them. If they don't, have a priest come to them as their best chance. The king has a living descendent. A few generations ago the king at the time sired a bastard. This bastard is a poor person the players met and befriended (my advice, have them meet a few people with qualities you'd want in a ruler whose next impact will be to look after the poor. Then when they take to one, that's the one who'll be the heir. What I'm saying is don't make an heir and risk the players not taking to them, but once they take to an NPC, make them the heir. They can then become the next Arad the kingdom needs, bringing a new era of wealth and stability.

So now the players need to protect their heir, perhaps shortly after they find them there's a leak and they need to smuggle them to safety then they need to remove the enemy and put the heir in charge, perhaps find records or proof or maybe a few high ranking priests will be enough. Saving the kingdom makes this great destiny easy to apply. Depends on the class and character. I mean maybe the character could be the heir or maybe they end up marrying the queen/king. You could do all sorts of class specific stuff, as a cleric they bring glory to their god and maybe revive or reform their church for the better, as a rogue maybe they plunder the dragon's hordes or set up a benevolent (or profitable) spy agency, works for a bard though maybe they just compile the tale of the events that happened and it becomes a favourite world wide, the wizard could rediscover or actually complete the previous wizard's work or adapt it and allow the desert kingdom to grow.

The middle of the campaign then becomes a fairly dynamic struggle as the nobles solidify their plans and the players get strong enough to start pushing back. Give the villains plans and goals that will progress and threats or suffering that will grow and back up plans. But also give them weaknesses, some the players will get hints at or know or be told, some they need to look for. Let them turn the guard back if they kill a few key figures (though perhaps waiting to strike, though if the players wait a long time they may have to prune a few more etc), let them raise an underground resistance (who will require help occasionally but will provide leads and slow plans down) let them sabotage plans, fight a guerilla war or just go looking for powerful magic items or weapons. The point is that at some point they start really stinging the villains and killing the players becomes the top priority and then the players can only stall the end so long.

If you can tie Arad's goal into something that does happen, bonus points. Either way. I just thought rather than have Arad leave his mark, have a crisis. Real stakes rather than the players going through the motions of a prophecy. They can also mostly succeed but have the Arad descendent die and still be okay. They can eventually true res Arad once they've removed the usurpers, or just try ruling themselves. If you end up putting the bastard's grandchild on the throne but then they can res Arad maybe as a dead guy he already sees great qualities in the new ruler and stands aside.

Why are there so many "rules light" indie systems? I jive with rules lite stuff, but it seems so over saturated at the moment. To the point where some of them lack so much crunch that they're just campfire stories. Thoughts?

I was going to mention D&D. Because 5th edition is much more streamlined. It's not quite rules light though. I think it's part of the trend though. The pared back rules meant it's become very hip to say how much into the narrative you are and stuff as a sort of backlash against 4th edition but all the Matt Mercer generation of players. Don't get me wrong I'm glad the hobby has grown but they're not quite right.

I think for most games you need a rule system for there to be any tension. If the DM writes the adventures properly they never know the players will pull through they probably should. Having some consistency (which rules enforced with a bit of sense, ie to the spirit not necessarily the janky letter) is a key part of any good narrative remaining engaging. If anything at all can happen in any way it's not tense because you're just waiting for the next ass pull.

3.5 and 4th were hugely rules heavy and 4th was more like a wargame. Now D&D and so a lot of these games have their roots in a wargame but having a slightly lighter framework is what lets us create the exciting stories. 2nd was janky, the combat rules were both specific and limited. In 3rd and 3.5 they piled in options and depth but I'm glad that you can pick a class and a couple of intuitive stats to load up and you won't be miles and miles behind an optimised multiclass (who will still have traded in certain things to do what they do). The use of core rules +1 in the official/store campaigns probably helps a bit too.
