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 ๐Ÿ˜Š
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 ๐Ÿ˜‰
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.

Vandalia World building Q&A

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.

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.

So undertaking my first major campaign construction, I had always played dungeons and dragons as a kid and a few times as an older adult and thrown together some bs dungeons or stolen something off the interwebs but I'm trying to craft a detailed world this time. What are your strategies, tips , successes stories? Running into logical errors like wanting to put a jungle and a forest on the same landmass and idk when I look at drafts of lager maps they just don't have that "real" feel if that makes any sense.

So I haven't been keeping uptodate with the Warhammer lore. I remember Marneus Calgar waking up from his coma and kickstarting a technological renaissance in the Imperium of Man, and then I just lost interest in wargaming because life.

I'm never gonna play again, but I still would like to hear whatever crazy storylines they came up with now.

There was no stack. Each spell had a speed, either sorcery speed, instant speed, or interrupt speed. The only way to respond to a spell was to cast a faster spell.

You cast a sorcery, in response I cast an instant, you can't cast another instant in response to my instant, you gotta bust out an interrupt. If you cast a sorcery and I responded with an interrupt, well, you're fucked, unless you have another interrupt to respond with.

That's how I remember it, but it's been almost 30 years now.

There used to be "the batch". You didn't have to escalate speeds but interrupts stopped stuff happening rather than just got something in first. Once the batch started resolving you couldn't add more cards unlike the stack. I was young and broke so I didn't get into the rules with the same depth over the whole time I played as I managed playing MTGA for 4 weeks. I had to look this shit up.

New system is better. Both simpler and more nuanced.

These are figures for the Warhammer40k game. It's a game played on table top or special tables with terrain or miniature cities. It's a bit cumbersome to learn to play, but it's pretty fun.

Collecting an army, assembling your figures, and painting them is a major part of the hobby.

It generally doesn't, other than ruling that allied ship collisions don't happen because the offending ship goes above/below the other one.

You can still ram enemy ships but only a select few sips would ever want to.

you don't want to make changes that late in the process. despite it probably being financially unfeasible and/or logistically impossible (getting product to the distributors on time is way more important than keeping leaks under wraps), making late tweaks like that is how you end up with ridiculous cards like skullclamp and jitte.

I came to /tg/ to ask this because I'm paranoid about malware (and rngs that aren't quite so random as I don't cheat. I'm playing against myself for chrissakes.) I'm just low on table space right now. So I'm relying on your expertise, /tg/, what do you use when you don't have a die on you?

>how does this guy have 25AC
the multiclass character has just that. full plate and a shield and the spells shield/shield of faith and decent saves, but that's it, he has really nothing else going for him. he likes to try out magic item combo's and see how he can utilise them. he isn't really creative with his spells though.

>How often do you let these guys rest?
one long rest since they've entered the tomb, at the end of the session. I knew I was doing this wrong so I had withers come and tell some lore and brag about his traps and how he allowed them to rest as a "reward" for managing to actually clear the first floor, while also gently not so gently telling them they won't easily find their rest next time.

>If you're going easy on them with traps you're probably letting them go easy
oh no, those traps are far too much fun for me. the players know this, they see me smile behind the screen when something triggers and the looks I get when I tell them what happens are priceless! it's mostly the combat encounters they have no problems with, migitating danger from the traps alot of the time

I also have the shadow from near the entrance following them which the players haven't figured out yet. I plan to ambush them at an opportune moment. I think the rotating trap room on floor 3 will make a nice spot for an ambush.

The monsters know is good. I'd read for the monsters you're running but if you ever write your own shit give it a go. Even if you don't memorise every entry it changes the way you approach monsters and fights. The basic assumptions of "they know what they're doing" because most of them are either evolved with those abilities and do it instinctively or they are sentient and in most cases are used to combat and gets you in the mindset of actually using the abilities they have properly.

I ran goblins last night and the players chewed them up, but most of the characters lost a lot of HP on several fights (one got downed once and reduced to 2hp another time, the final boss wasn't horrendous but everyone was below half HP and out of resources by the end). I had the giant rats using pack tactics, the goblins running to cover to hide and that sort of thing and this was a party who didn't let anyone escape and warn the other groups until they were in the base they even captured and interrogated one of the goblins on the patrol they found then refused to let him off to warn the enemies. They found his name, grew attached, then let him free hoping he'd help them. He decided to backstab them but was shot dead running to join his tribe, mostly because it made sense in the circumstances but also because it was funnier that way. If they'd been any less thorough or stealthy there'd have been ambushes waiting everywhere.

Shadows are good because they attack stats (and one that most parties, though possibly not yours, dumps). This makes them really fucking nasty regardless of level. Be wary of turn undead so maybe during another fight (so it ruins the cleric's action economy) or it grabs someone more than 30 feet away from the cleric.


Oh and remember tanky mctankface is probably going to be ignored. He's tough but as long as he's not in attack of opportunity range he's the least threatening. This isn't an MMO where you have defensive stance or your armour increases your aggro generation. If he's grabbed sentinel or can hold chokepoints that's good, but if not he can only hold one enemy at a time. And that assumes they even care about his attack of opportunity. If he pulls out a wand of fireballs of course it's all change.
