420chan is Getting Overhauled - Changelog/Bug Report/Request Thread (Updated July 26)

Outlanda revival

So this old game site I used to lurk is trying to restart.
It was a play-by-post fantasy RPG, lots of games being run simultaneously in a shared setting, and pretty loose-and-fast rules. There was a beginner's area, which was a tavern outside of town, where parties would form before they headed off.
Characters from all kinds of games and settings would show up, I guess the tavern was one of those Munden's Bar type dimensional nexuses, and the town had three minotaurs from three different settings, the sheriff, the healer, and the librarian, all with wildly varying personalities, appearances and biologies, all very surprised to see another minotaur, lol.
The adventures there were a pleasure to read, and the moderation style wasn't as overbearing as some places I've tried to play, so in the name of enlightened self-interest I'll signal-boost, because there just isn't enough good play by post RPing these days.
http://outlanda.com/

They need players, writers, GMs, artists, web designers, admins and mods, I'm sure 420chan has all of that, so if you want to help build a world, go get some.

Ciaphas Cain's father

Kal Jerico is, in all likelyhood Ciaphas Cain's father. He's the governor's son-turned-bounty hunter, who got hitched to an Inquisitor. Usually the schola progenium doesn't pick up underhive rats and send them off to be Commissars (as is noted in the books by Amberley Vail) so he had to have been born to someone important. Cain himself notes he was born on a hive world, and his uncle (I think his uncle) was a bounty hunter. He doesn't name the world he was born on, citing he doesn't actually know.

I'd say it's a pretty solid theory, what about you?

Painting miniatures (and Battletech)

I decided to start painting miniatures as a hobby to rebuild dexterity in my hands and decided on Battletech so I purchased a few mechs from Iron Winds (an Atlas II, Ymir, Lu Wei Bing, Anubis, and an Osiris). My first question is what are all the tools am I gonna need for assembly? So far I was gonna buy an exacto knife, files, and a diagonal cutter. Any super glue work for this or do I need to purchase some special stuff like citadel sells? What am I missing? Also recommendations on brush sets and paint/primer brands would be appreciated.

This first time I kind of just bought what I wanted to paint but if I decide to keep going I think next purchase I want to put together a fieldable lance on the chance I decide to actually play. So anyone with experience in BT, any suggestions as far as building an assualt lance around some of the mechs I already purchased?

Super glue is super glue. If they're metal figurines any super glue will do. Just make sure you get a brand with a good applicator and reasonable price. If you're using HDP then poly cement is the shit you need.

Seriously /tg/ no thread about this?!?!

The Imperium musters for total war. Armies the size of which haven't been seen since The Age of Darkness are rallying to the Primarch reborn, the Lord Commander of the Imperium, the Master of Ultramar, the Avenging Son!!

The Age of the Imperium is over... The Age of Guilliman has begun!!!

I'm surprised there hasn't been any discussion regarding this. Any 40k fans been looking at the leaks of 8th edition at all? I'd love to hear your thoughts. Also, what armies do you play?

The start collecting box sets are a good price. You basically get a $40 unit for free.

I main Guard, but I now have some Death Guard and Primaris Marines because I got the box set.

Havent tried the Guard out yet this addition, but thusfar I'm liking a lot of the changes that have been added to the tabletop and the lore progression.

Just thinking.
I know the whole "adventure party" tradition is ripped from Lord Of The Rings, and The Fellowship Of The Ring was that size to try and sneak past the Ork armies and monsters into Mordor, but it just seems odd to have all these 5/6-strong variegated mini-gangs tromping around looking for caves and unexplored underground labyrinths. Just spontaneously forming in taverns and heading out to the nearest underground structure and just assuming it's going to be full of monsters and loot instead of fucking bats and bat shit.

I mean that size party isn't much good for anything except bodyguarding, courier work, and banditry, really.
Are there really any historical or fantasy parallels to the RPG party before Tolkien? There were Sindbad's crews, but they were pretty much expressly redshirts. I guess even within Tolkien there was the Dwarf party that Bilbo accompanied, but that wasn't exactly a "party", more a "band", like the Vikings in Eaters Of The Dead. With a Band you can get things done, especially a homogeneous one, like a pack of Arthur's kniggits, or Charlemagne's paladins. The ragtag party isn't much good for anything but exploration, and they're just lucky that every dungeon is basically unguarded, with security depending on local wildlife wandering in and eating adventurers, and the occasional trap which must have to be reset every time a cave horse or a cave elk steps on one. I guess the wildlife running into the traps is what feeds the Orc guards. Considering they never seem to just buy some goddamn food from the local town, apart from maybe raiding a farm or two. So that explains why they leave to door open and unguarded, so the things wander in. Although it would make more sense to set the traps outside.

Starting a tabletop gaming crew at my work. Looking into World of Darkness for our first game, most likely Werewolf, because who doesn't fucking love werewolfs right?!

Which system is more preferable? Foresaken or Apocalypse?
Which is more streamlined?

You need to develop a committment to a character and an investment in the setting. Like having a wood etching of the garou's marks that you carved yourself, made out of polished wood. I'm not sure about say, laquer, but turtle wax or something maybe. (Like the kind people use for their cars)

The point is, you need things like props, funny voices, strange modes of speech. You need things like music to produce the atmosphere but it needs to be ambient, sort of hidden in the background.

I used to like bands that contained a lot of political lyrics, but I realized that they are immersion breaking at the table, people are too busy listening to the lyrics and the rythyms. They are either getting too into it or its turning them off.

Anyone up for a game? Or maybe the modern internet version as that works quite well despite using "the tubes" instead of "the tube". Anyone up for a round of "420chan"?

The following house rules would be in play.

>Home is 420chan
>You can take one move per day or two on a friday if you're in at home but no double posts
>Commentary and historical significance of moves encouraged
>Search engines are not wild, no deep web, one proxy per game allowed

Anyone up for a few games? Start us us off somewhere distant please.

meant to say, right now i'm just starting out at low stakes tournaments (<$100 buy in). I've done well 4 times out of roughly 30-40 attempts so i'm far from a winning player (got 1st once, cashed another time and had 2 final tables). Working on my game by reading up, playing some home games, and trying to spot my weaknesses.

Not really comfortable shelling out a $300-$500 buyin for 1/3 or 2/5 NL cash game at a casino so I'll probably be a tourny player for a while. Really hoping online poker gets legalized in washington but it doesnt seem like it'll happen any time soon.

How is your game?

I'd suggest learning short stacking, if you can buy in for 25BB or less you could build roll on those cash games fairly easily, especially if people buyin big and are loose.

As for me still playing 5nl, on a breakeven period atm, trying to study and grind through it.

Agreed, but I do think there are some work arounds. I mean, you don't technically need the fancy $40 model of a hover tank to say its a hover tank, it just looks cool. Then one can probably pirate the rule set and go to the races.

I do think that the 'indy' boardgame scene is in good shape right now, the model of 'building' something given a restriction then battling it out could work. There is a deck building game called dominion which has melded that mechanic pretty well but it doesn't have what you were talking about (a point bank which you use to purchase an 'army').

If you are good at graphic design and using software, I think it would be sweet to design a game like that and see if kick starter will help you to market. Plenty of games have started out that way
