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.

>For making absolutely 0 secondary design changes
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.

so, do you actually play magic, or just bitch about it on forums? please go to a modern tournament with preordain in your deck and report back with how that goes.

I'm looking for a free, d20 random number generator available in-browser, preferably compatible with Android so I'm not running back and forth from a desktop setup.

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.

Kinda late, but heres how I got into MTG 2 years ago:

I watched this on Vice and my curiousity was piqued: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Plr81gaUIr0

Next, I was able to convince a buddy to get into MTG with me. We then proceeded to go to our local walmart and bought a Duel Deck and a few random packs. We used the internet to learn the rules and subtleties of the game. We each chose "colors" and started building decks around those colors. Every week we would meet up on sunday mornings, get high af and play magic for a few hours. Everytime he would destroy my decks I would go back to the drawing board and retool my decks to counter his decks. Eventually we started building more decks and expanded into different formats (standard, modern, commander). We still get together once every week or two and play MTG but we stick to commander mostly (standard got too expensive and we weren't going to FNM so we didnt care).

My advice to you if your going to play paper magic, find a friend and do your thing for a little bit and then go to a LGS. The LGS that i first went to was super supportive giving us free starter decks, sleeves and they even assessed my deck and taught me about the mana curve. Avoid spending money on expensive cards when you're a beginner because you want to LEARN before you start investing in expensive products.

Good luck dude!

This guy is right.

I started at a FNM with some jank ass deck that I went 1 win with and lost all the rest because I didn't know how to really play.

Then I started getting into commander which is really fucking fun because you can pull some shit out your ass and really play.

Seriously, if you get into paper magic, Commander is the way to go. Modern/Vintage is about who spends the most money or who started playing back when to collect those cards, and Standard is usually a meta game that is also expensive. Commander is just bring your 100 card deck and hope it works out in the end while having a grand ole time.
