Would a human being armed with a sword defeat a T-Rex in a straight fight?
>>32783565how many times was the swords steel folded?
>>32783565What is the human's class and level?
>>32783582An excessive amount
>>32783565Is the t-rex dire or regular?
>>32783628Regular, though possesses, and is profecient with, two spears
>>32783626>>32783651Well, assuming the human was proficient with his sword, he would have to dodge t-rexes spear charge and/or bite in order to attack his flank. The T-rex has tiny arms, so his dual spears will be less useful there.With his excessively folded steel and simian rage the human should be able to cut the beasts leathery hide.So probably, i´d say.
Depends on if we're using some terrible gamist ruleset or some decent ruleset that actually cares about verisimilitude.
>>32783772Even in a normal standing state a large spear is well within headstabbing range of a human
I'm gonna go ahead and say it's distinctly possible. Most of the time people die to megafauna predators in fiction it's because they ran and we all know that prey runs. They're also rarely armed and of the mental disposition to stand their ground or charge the trex.
>>32783858It lacks the muscular structure in the arms to deliver a blow too fast and too hard to easily block or parry.
>>32783565You know what, I'm just going to go ahead and say it.No way./thread
If he can take at least one of the eyes: absolutely.
>>32783919I believe it would stab downward using both its crappy arm muscles and the weight of its body. Parrying is not something that would even be conceivable.
>>32783919Obviously the Rex is using the momentum of the charge.The question here is the Rex like it's name implies and in fact a member of some Royal family, this being clad in decent armor? Or is it merely a Tyranosarus Serf?
>>32783858but consider how slow a t-rex turns.
>>32784033I'd say at least some decent chainmail.
>>32784102What if the T-rex uses a sidestepping tactic?
>>32784126Shift in momentum makes him lose the speed advantage that his charge gives him.
>>32783919>>32784102What if the t-rex has one spear attached to the snout and one to the tail?
>>32783565if he is a sikh
It's difficult to say without significant insight on how cunning this T-Rex is. And whether it has experience with humans, swords and the terrain.
>>32784126If he charges, he cannot sidestep. If he doesnt charge, the other steel-clad t-rex nobles will think of him as a coward.
>>32784199>Not using weapons in his hands like a real noble warriorWe're not talking about Allosaurus here.
>>32784199Get a load of this pleb
>>32784221He's already going at it with two spears instead of a lance and shield.I think he's the inbred mad son of a noblesaur alreadyHe deserves the loss. probably the worse Jouster at the Interspecies Tournament.
>>32784169>My speed is superior, my victory is certainThe T-Rex probably wasn't a sluggish thing.
>>32784279But he's shifting forward momentum to the tide in order to sidestep, and given that he's a massive bit of megafauna it should slow him down a considerable amount.
>>32784220We have already established that the Trex in question is part of an established house of Trex nobles, so we can assume he is at least as cunning as a human knight. As for terrain, perhaps a grassy plain, where all honor duels take place.
>>32783565I honestly think that a professionally trained and experienced human in full plate, with some sort of pole arm and a backup weapon, could stand a roughly 50/50 chance of killing a smallish adult T-Rex.Any comments?
>>32784221a smart won't stop if he misses, he keeps going put some distance between him and the Ittle man before turning to charge again.Flight sim fans will recongnise this as "Boom and zoom"
>>32784332I assume it's the foot part of the Interspecies tournament like >>32784272Suggested.It would explain the strange fighting style of the T-rex.
>>32784358*a smart T-rex*
>>32784344>KillingWhy would he kill the T-rex and not ransom it off to it's Father?Thats the last time I'd hire such uncouth Mercenaries.
>>32784344Plate isn't going to help. If you're in its mouth at any point you've lost. You want range and speed.
>>32784272Tyrol Recstofen the Mad, son of Lord Recstofen of the Abundant Plains of West Pangaea.
>>32784382Tsk! Back to /pol/ with you!
>>32784344I concur, as has been noted most people who died to Trexes in things like Jurassic Park were both running (so prey) and not of the disposition to actually fight. I bet it would actually be intimidating to be a giant predator and this smaller, sharp and pointy thing advancing on *you* for once.
>>32784313It'd slow down, yeah, but, it has pretty big n' powerful legs and thighs, so it could accelerate up to a certain speed again.
>>32784363Yeah everyone knows trexs prefer using range weaponry like bows. Why would one use spears? I wanna know this trex's backstory.
>>32784440Have we not thought of the possibility of a well trained T-rex noble being able to strafe? Or "juke" like a modern American football player?
>>32784386I think you're overestimating how hard each bite is. You're too big to swallow whole, and with the armor it'll probably have to chomp you a couple times before you're out of the game.If you're reasonably good with a glaive or spear or something, you can probably counter attack it pretty fiercely when it tries and then look for an opportunity to stab its belly flesh.
>>32784005>crappy arm musclesactually its arm muscles were pretty fucking strong.Tiny, yes. But strong nonetheless. They (probably) used their claws like meat hooks to hold onto thrashing prey.
>>32783565Easily. A t-rex can't breath very well in our modern day atmosphere. So it would fall over and start suffocating.
>>32784475Clearly the T-rex needs to be carrying a Glaive or some other form of sweaping polearm design to cover up this inherent weakness.
>>32784527I think you're underestimating the fact that if that thing puts you in its jaws you're going to get torn to fucking pieces when it starts shaking you.
>>32784565What if it's a human back in their atmosphere?
>>32784598His or her lungs would explode.
>>32783565I conclude that this colloquium requires more drawings of t-rex-knights, their armory, and their samurai-caveman opponents.
>>32784527>belly fleshAre you fucking with me now?Go. For. The. Eyes.If you can't get that, go for the nose.
>>32784618Oh they would not you asshole our astronauts routinely breathed high-oxygen atmosphere during spaceflight and space vehicle testing.
>>32784618>Implying he won't go full Superman.You're trying to trick me Sauropod. It ain't working.I'm coming for you and your special air.
>>32784632I think counter attacking when it tries to chomp you would be a prime example of a time where one might "go for the eyes".
>>32784667Yeah, but not from inside its mouth. If you could roll out when it lunged you'd have the best shot. Take out one eye and all of a sudden it has a giant blind spot. Take out both and you're home free.
>>32784698Why not jam your sword into the roof of its mouth? Skull's not in your way if you're stabbing through soft tissue.
>>32784659What are you talking about friend. I'm just a nice friendly gentleman.
>>32784735There's no skull between the roof of its mouth and its brain?On second though, regardless it might actually be super hard to FIND its brain let alone hit it with your spear.
>>32784735You're not going to hit its brain so at best you would lose your sword and make it bleed.
Oh /tg/. I'm so proud.
>>32783565What kind of idiot would take on a T-Rex in a straight fight? You bait it into a trap, poison it, or get it when it's sleeping. You get a bunch of your bros and use tactics and spears. Or rifles.You don't take something like that as one man with a sword. He-Man shit like that is how carnivores get a taste for long pork.
>>32784776>believing Titanosarus propaganda.Why don't you just give him your shekels too eh?
>>32783565The human has no chance with the sword in a whiteroom fight.What's the terrain? Can the human call in any backup? How much chrome does the Trex have?These are important things to remember.
>>32784862>>32784851Just apply enough sword.
>>32784851is "getting a taste for human" an actual thing that animals can?because it always seem like it was just the type of superstitious "common knowledge" that certain folks like to repeat to each other to make sense of the chaotic meaninglessness of nature.
>>32784923Yes, man-eaters are a thing. An animal that has eaten humans once is much, much more likely to do it again.
>>32784923Some animals have learned they can prey on humans.But no actual animal "gets a taste for human" and actively goes after ONLY humans.Tigersm Nile Crocodiles and Saltwater Crocodiles being some of the few. Bears, despite a reputation, don't actually eat human remains unless dire.
>>32784412But the t-Rex lived during the Cretaceous, Pangaea no longer existed
/tg/ and their bullshit threads of nonsense.All these fucking plebs with their 'T-Rex would charge with his spear.' as if that would ever happen.T-Rex comes from a long line of nobles, a spear is a peasants sword used for front line canon fodder. He would obviously engage in mounted combat as a proper lord would on a siege-mammoth. Direct contact with a lesser being would be beneath him.
>>32784994Don't forget hippos!NEVER FORGET THE HIPPOS
Would any of you chaps like to procure some finely crafted weapons. I promise there are no hidden vipers in them.
>>32784915That's not a sword, that's infantile idiocy.
>>32784851>>32784862This is honorable one on one combat, get with the program guys.
>>32784915Just apply enough dinosaur!
>>32785026Nobody cares about the stick up your ass, anon.
>>32785003>Implying T-rexes and humans have not been steadfast allies since the great plains battle of 1400.>>32785026It's a weapon designed to smash big animals, and the human has strength enough to wield it.
>>32784923Don't most carnivores only attack humans when they're starving or sacred ground is being tread upon though? I would assume most animals either don't like the taste of people or are too scared of getting riddled with bullets to dare attack, but can't be certain which is the actual case.
Is the sword a million times folded katana made out of diamond going at iron miles per hour?The t-rex would be turned into a fine pink mist.
>>32785061Human flesh is quite rancorus to many animals like most great apes.It's why most predators don't go after other predators when they have better prey animals, the meat is just not as rewarding.
>>32785060>Hurr durr HUMON STRONKYeah, what I already said.>>32785055>BU- BU- BUT IT'S TOTALLY SUPERCOOLAcquire some god damn taste.
>>32785060Pure T-Rex propoganda, everyone knows that humans were used as meat shields during those wars. The only decent thing to come out of that "alliance" was the female T-Rexes developing a craving for human cock on a frequent basis. Our breeding tactics lead to their downfall.
>>32785119I have close to three decades of martial training. I am proficient with numerous weapons, including but not limited to numerous different types of swords. I know exactly how swords are optimally constructed, and even I can appreciate big dumb fantasy swords made out of the remains of big fantasy monsters. Stop trying so hard to be TOTALLY SUPERMATURE. You're literally in a thread where everyone is having a good time joking about dinosaurs wearing armor and being knights and shit. It's pretty pathetic and sad that you so desperately need to feel superior to others that you've actively killed any appreciation for fantastical and colorful elements you could have had. You've lost your spirit, and you've become a boring person, or you always were one.Go roleplay grimdark Game of Thrones-like shit with your fellow grimdark enthusiasts.

>>32785467I don't see how there's anything wrong with being sick and tired of the ubiquitous fantasy trope of "so far beyond anything believable I just don't give a shit any more". I know I am.
>>32785740Hilariously oversized swords and normal-sized swords, I assume.

Just proof that dex builds beat strength builds every time.
>>32785812Has something new happened that reminded everyone of its existence?Like some new piece of animorphs related media, or some animorphs news story?This is going to bug me for a while; I can tell.
>>32785825Indeed, the T-rex opting for Dual spears was bloody terrible.
>>32785797In that case, then no.
>>32785839xkcd posted something linked to animorphs recently, does that count?
>>32785839not that I'm aware of. I was just reminded of the book where they got sent back to the cretaceous and ax took down a t. rex
>>32784527chomp you a few times? Are you fucking serious? Picture a Flanged mace being swung at someone in plate. Now times 100000 is each of the t-rexs teeth chomping down on you. It could rip apart plate like it was nothing. Go read up on some of the natural armor dinosaurs had that old rex could rip through.Human with exceptional training and a sword + spear would have about a 2% against an adult rex, if that.
>>32785609>Apparently, that doesn't help with taste.So, is "taste" the new "class" that autists and fedora wearers claim to have, that makes them superior to everyone who picked on them in school?

>>32785884Just like you can successfully mix intelligent discourse with the clinically retarded.Oh, wait...
One on one combat generally assumes like weapons, for fairness.I believe with a long sword and shield the human would have a pretty good chance of winning, given his ability to weave in and out of the Tyrannosaurs threat range. If the human can land a telling blow on a leg muscle, the match is all over.
>>32785905You know, I actually sit in a rare house.The house where if my guys are going after Giant wyrms and colossial beasts, I ensure to tell them OCC their little rapier +3 is getting a -5 penalty for size damage. So I often give them.My current setting is basically Witcher meets monster hunter with a chapter of people called "Slayers" on the northern front designed to fight of Manticores, Hydras, Dire Griffins and the like.They do so with supremely large weapons and enchanted gauntlets allowing them to swing large weapons. Because all the countries lack the man power to constantly send patroles of ill fitted soldiers to die against giant monsters because spears and arrows do jack shit.How do I solve this for my party? An easy spell. "Enlarge Weapon" Many penis jokes are had until the rogue realised he does no damage with his tiny little stabbers.
less butthurt more Trex in armor
>>32785972Wait.. are you saying Monster Hunter is clinically retarded?It actually makes MORE Sense to use huge weapons on huge monsters to inflict more damage, especially considering that the humans in the setting can be pretty fucking strong. most of these monsters are pretty fucking durable too.How would YOUR realistic approach handle a Deviljho?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EE5Dkymj6b8
>>32785990I make my players take on big creatures by finding a way to their weak points. Usually eyes or some head orifice. Swashbuckler's are pretty good at climbing huge monsters.
Posting big fun weapons to further upset Mr. Autist
>>32785982A T-rex would surely be faster and stronger than a human.
the closest I can think is using phoenix command, it has melee rules on a splat and dinosaurs on another
>>32786068Yeah. So you pretend that YOUR way is more realistic when in reality climbing a large predatory monster is fucking retarded due to a single roll will usually crush you and "Aiming for the eyes" in a situation like that takes immense luck and skill.Just to put this scope into reality. Take a dagger or a slingshot.Try and kill a Lion.
>>32786068I'd like to see your players fight something like this.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QeqS4YypSjc

>>32786118I'm not the guy you think I am. Roleplaying is about over the top heroes doing over the top heroic deeds.

>>32786186Katana cannot pierce superior T-Rex flesh
>>32786101Higher Top Speed, lower maneuverability. A lot more strength, sure.
>>32786054>doing something that is absolutely impossible. Not even just something very unlike, like say a fucking unicorn or something but absolutely and completely outside the realm of possibility>makes more sense Not even once.>How would YOUR realistic approach handle a Deviljho?Traps. Poison. Explosives. Big fucking rocks.Humans have, in reality, taken down woolly mammoths and all sorts of megafauna. Do you really think their go to method was "Let's get really fucking pumped and go straight up to these incredibly dangerous animals and slam them with this huge thing."?No, even if we somehow take into consideration that it would somehow make the least bit of sense to wield weapons like that, which it never will, that's still the dumbest fucking thing you can do. You don't want to be up and personal with something that can instantly kill you with the flick of an extremity or single glancing stomp. If people could be that strong, there are still a hundred better options.So for that to make sense we have to make even more allowances how these "munstur hunturs" either have supermagical superarmor or have trained their bodies to be harder that superdiamond or whatever shitty bullshit excuse they use in that universe and then we're fully deep in Absolutely Retarded territory, and there are no return trips.
>>32786214Oh, I apologise.But Monster Hunter, despite how silly it looks, really is fairly realistic in it's goals.Most of the Monsters can't be harmed much by Steel weaponry, so you gradually work your way up.And most of them have godly resilence, so when you want to wound the fuckers, you need a big sword.
>>32786118But you don't understand.They would use their superior smarts to lure the monster in a false sense of security, trap it and attack its weak point (sorry, don't have pic of Giant Enemy Crab).Much like in Monster Hunter mind you. Just they'd climb the monster in the trap.Much like one can in MH4 IIRC.So in fact he was pretending to be retarded while making a point for MH.>>32786249See?>>32786244Making the shield pointless.
>>32786214>Roleplaying is about over the top heroes doing over the top heroic deeds.Sure. If you're fucking twelve.

>>32786235God damn thats fucking awesome
>>32786249Its fantasy you idiot. It looks cool. And magic worlds have their own laws of physics. Not our laws of physics. Humans are stronger, tougher, faster in magic dragonland.Its ok to enjoy realistic and fantastic stories, for different reasons. It really is.It isn't weeaboo or retarded to want to play a game where things are ridiculous and amazing, any more then its grimdark or cruel to play a game thats realistic and hard. I mean really. If you're a roleplayer and you can't enjoy D&D Basic and Exalted style games, for different reasons, you have issues. Learn to embrace the variety of game systems.
>>32786253>>32786249Ssshhh, no tears, only big weapons now
>>32786068My god, your anus must be bleeding profusely.
When we fight amongst ourselves, the theropod menace wins.
Bah. T-rex loses to Werewolf. Every time.
>>32786244Lower maneuverability maybe, but with that top speed the T-rex would never have to maneuver anywhere near the man. Unless its a very small space.

Fuck no. I've seen a goddamn T-rex skellington up close. There is no way any single human being with a run o the mill sword is going to do anything except die horribly.Now if there were MULTIPLE dudes with swords sure, but it's more of a case of "you're the bait, we'll try to stab it in the face as it comes down to eat you".Merely law of quantity. A modern-day alligator can easily make a human his bitch. Now upscale that bitch to the size of a house.Not fucking happening.
>>32786391Why are you in a T-rex v man thread?
>>32786416Fun is a parasite!
>>32786391>Most of classical literature is about larger then life heroes.>"Realistic" stories didn't become a thing until nearly modern times.>Enjoying myths is 12 year old taste.>Enjoying stories with magic is 12 year old taste.>Enjoying fairy tales is 12 year old taste.No my friend. You're the one with 12 year old taste. Taste too old and too grimmed and too 'mature' to enjoy things that aren't grey and droll. “Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” -C.S. Lewis
>>32786439No, I implied I play games that are fun, without insisting that everything be perfectly tuned to my autism. That, you know, heroics can be enjoyable and entertaining.

>>32786465guy probably thinks Lewis is for babies. In any case, we should just ignore the autistic fun hater who seems to enjoy being butthurt
>>32786488I think we have a serious case of a No-fun norman in this thread who assumes every type of Megafauna is a mammoth And that shit like Dragons, Manticores, Hydras and such are not fantastical creatures that are not quite as slow, sluggish and downright soft targets as a Mammoth is.I mean really, an example was posted above.Try killing a Lion with a slingshot or dagger.Try trapping it with a mouse trap or throwing pebbles at it, or poisoning it with a small dose of rat poison.There comes a time when your fighting large creatures that these tactics don't work on the small scale, and in order to poison or trap that there giant monster, you need giant poitned things to even cut through it's hide.never mind I think it's impossible to poison a Hydra or Manticore anyway.
>>32786523Indeed, the T-rex would let the man use as big a sword as the man wants. Just to make it a fairer fight.

The kind of rocks you can only set into motion with a big improvised lever.>Mammoths are not Dragons, Hydras, Wyverns and Chimeras are they?They might as well be. You're severely underestimating how fucking dangerous Mammoths, or even just a wild elephant, really is. If it catches you and wants to hurt you, you're fucking dead.Mammoths had really, really fucking thick hide, too. Sure, you can arbitrarily rule that your fantasy creatures are 1000000000 times cooler and more resilient than this, but that'd be retarded and not based on any sort of common sense or aim for believability.
>>32786577You can poison Gigginox, Great Wroggis, and Rathians, if you use enough of it.
>>32786501Only because the alligator is still human sized. When you make the alligator's teeth alone each the size of your fucking head, you're not going to wrestle shit. A beefy human COULD wrestle a gator because both are proportionally sized as to make grappling techniques still effective against them (if horribly suicidal).How the shit would a human grapply a T-Rex when they don't even reach the belly? You gonna hug its foot? Enjoy being thrown off and stepped on.
>>32786622The Werewolf is also Inquisitor Torquemada. And he fucks the Vampire in the comic.Also, reminder that this is what scientists think T-rexes look like now.
>>32786623Actually he's got a point with poison.LD50, man. Lethal doses are, in fact, based on weight - it takes more snake venom to kill an elephant than a human. Being huge is its own defense.In fact, you may notice that in the real world, the largest animals are primarily prey - carnivores rarely get bigger than, say, alligator or tiger sized.
>>32786142We play 3.5 so...sorry.Reflex saves vs the burst from the ground attacks.Usually, half of the party has really big crossbows with chain grappling hooks on them, they use these for climbing and tie ups.They usually carry climbing hooks and rope and try to make their way along the creatures body and hold on for dear life when it submerges.Look for weak spots between the natural armor plating and, if anyone has knowledge nature and has done their research, they can find weak points to strike at.They are usually drunk when attempting fighting huge creatures. Its all a lot of fun, much for exciting for me and them than hacking at its knees (or whatever, armor plating) until it slowly bleeds out.>>32786577Some people like Die Hard, some people like The Notebook.
>>32786501>Nothing in this world is invulnerable.True enough, but there's such a thing as tiers of hunters/prey.Like how humans stay the fuck away from Grizzly Bears. There's a reason for it. You take on things in your weight limit, so to speak.
If I had to go up against a T-Rex, I'd get a spear. Typically a long-range option would be preferable, but javelins and arrows would at best drive the thing away; I'd need like some dart frog poison or something to bring it down otherwise. Persistence hunting is fruitless without helpers. So I'd get a long-ass spear, and stab it in the gut and ass. I'd turn when it turns, because I really don't want to be anywhere near the head. If the head gets too close, I suppress it with jabs. Nothing likes sharp things moving towards its eye. So eventually it'd bleed out, or my spear would break, and I'd run the fuck away. However, if I'm hunting dinosaurs I'm gonna go after a smaller herbivore. Killing something gargantuan is a waste for me alone, and herbivores will be more nutritious.
>>32786631>Enjoy being thrown off and stepped on.You know nothing of T-Rexian honor
>>32786623What do common sense or believability have to do with giant flying fire breathing lizards and multi headed abominations?
>>32786679The problem is he implied he'd had to carry like barrels and barrels of poison when in fact the difference is a human lethal dose is like a drop and a dragon lethal dose is, at worst, a cups worth.Or you could just get a more potent poison.
>>32786674Or like this.
>>32784358What happens when the little man bounces high and dices on the dino?
>>32786746Great, now they have to remake all the land before time movies. When did this happen anyway, I don't keep up with dino discoveries.
>>32786712>T-Rex>HonourBitch I played Dino Crisis. Mothafuckas don't got shit for honour. I'm in the office pouring a goddamn whiskey cause I just got my team-mate lost in the jungle and ate by the T-Rex and all of a sudden, T-Rex busts his head into the window demanding my fucking drink too!
>>32786716Everything. Because despite /tg/ generally being absolutely retarded in these departments, such animals can be portrayed with believability, oh even realism in mind.It's just that most denizens here are much too KILL LOOT SELL REPEAT to even care about that.
>>32786741These things weigh tons, man. Based on kilograms, you're talking about a thousandfold amount of poison or more for the higher-tier critters, not accounting for any resistance or robustness they might have inherently.And even then how are you going to deliver that poison? Tiny arrows are only going to carry so much fresh toxin.
>>32786623>Starts listing C4 and Snake venom.>To kill armored and mystical beasts.Seriously, you are losing ground. Rapidly.So now we're talking about Middle Ages humans having access to C4 grade explosives and huge snake farms in the off chance they need to kill a large monster? In between usual middle ages politics?Also, Mammoths are nothing like a Dragon, Chimera, Hydra or Manticore because all of those are fantasy creatures with either DRAGON SCALES or they're fast and agile hunters designed for killing and destruction.Seriously. Point out this chart and show me how any of those creatures would go down easier than a mammoth using actually middle ages weaponry.I really think you're just one of those autistic realists who cannot understand a fantasy setting is different to real life.>>32786700Oh don't confuse me, I don't say all my Monster Hunters get to sit around in a circle and slap a Great Dragon's ass until it dies. They just need big weapons to try and fight them. Fighting things like a Dragon turtle is fine for them to try and climb on, but the last time someone tried to use the tactic on a Manticore, the thing just rolled it's body several times and smash the poor ranger into paste with it's bulk.Different Monsters fight differently, and some are so damn solid and so damn durable, you can't trap them and you can't just ride them, you need to bust in it's kneecaps and then curbstomp it's face.
>>32786790Uncultured, savage T-Rex, clearly.
>this fucking glorious thread
>>32786772About 2 years ago I think. They found identations on bones that indicated feathers, and with the whole bird like bone structure...
>>32786823I wasn't aware there was any other kind!
>>32786800I mean, sure, Toxin may work on stuff like Unicorns or smaller dragons.But what about Manticores, Hydras and Chimera, things all inherently poisonous?It'll not just tay tons of poison, but depending on the type, what Kind of poison.I mean Chimera and Hydra's are Snake based right? How do we know slapping tons of cobras poisons together doesn't even phase them?Never mind dragons, who can be bloody magic.
>>32786834THANK YOU BASED DRAWFAG
>>32786807Oh, thats definitely true. I like the big weapons route, but my players all like luring things into traps. Big holes in the ground full of spikes, or into a designated kill zone with a whole bunch of siege weapons ready to go.I might steal your weapon + gauntlet thing though, if for no other reason than I know one of my players will love it.
>>32786844I think a current revisionsm is they were not fully coated in feathers due to the climate in the same way not every Mammoth species or Wholly rhino had fur everywhere.I always prefer something like this.
>>32786912Truly ferocious, though now I'm curious if dinosaurs were color blind or not.
>>32786866Speaking of dragons what kind of fucked up biology do you have to have to breath fucking fire?
>>32786912>>32786912Hm.. thing is, we don't actually know anything about their shape. That iconic T-rex head? Most likely didn't look like that. Probably more fat and muscle on it.
>>32786953Hmm. You'd basically need something that oxidizes really easily, something else to keep it from doing so, and some way to expel the first from the second.
>>32786834belay thatworth being late for my taxi
>>32786953They can expel methane from their mouth-holes
>>32786791If they were believable, then the square-cube law applies? What then, a monster that cannot move? Where is the realism then?If you allow for realism to take over, its done.Dragons can't breath fire man. They can't fly.Next, of course you'll say that you allow them to fly, and breath fire. But in keeping with that, you need to keep the setting internally coherent. That means special technique to take down monsters.Also, in MH, traps exist. They work.Poison exists. It works.A very effective tactic in MH is to poison some monsters. Using either guns or small, usable by an actual human sword.Arguably one of the fastest way to kill a monster in MH is to trap it, put it to sleep, then use bombs to injure and capture/kill it.In other words, what you say is possible and effective, not to mention much better at achieving the desired result.But there are also huge weapons, because it's just as fun.
>>32786953A "swim bladder" full of some flammable gas and saliva that reacts to that gas. Digestion refills the bag instead of having the creature fart it out.Whammo, living flamethrower.
>>32786758The T-rex will be going at 30kph-ish and in fighting mood. There shouldn't be too much time for the man to do dicing.
>>32786800>thousandfold amount of poisonSo, the difference between a drop and a small cup, then? Just like I said.>not accounting for any resistance or robustnessThese are video game terms, not something that exists anywhere.>>32786807>So now we're talking about Middle Ages humansYou're the first one to explicitly mention them in this argument. I was just asked what traps I would use.>access to huge snake farmsIf you actually needed some alternative to kill megafauna that makes at least a modicum of sense, that's one way to go. Not my preferred one, but I'll not shy away from it.>Mammoths are nothing like a Dragon, Chimera, Hydra or Manticore because all of those are fantasy creatures with either DRAGON SCALESSure, if you arbitrarily define them not to be, but you have no reason to because that makes no sense. There's no reason an oversized lizard would be any more of anything than an oversized mammal.>Point out this chart and show me how any of those creatures would go down easier than a mammoth using actually middle ages weaponry.Ignoring the stupidly sized ones: just like a mammoth. I never said they'd be easier than mammoths, I said they'd be about the same thing. Which they would be, because all of you are underestimating how tough mammoths are.>using actually middle ages weaponryRocks, traps and poison is still the way to go. Unlike what some people think, you can't go hunting moving targets with siege weapons that was designed to hit, and still often missed, big-ass stationary castles.>who cannot understand a fantasy setting is different to real lifeOh I understand perfectly well, I'm just saying it's infantile and retarded. Because, you know, it is.
>>32786986Probably something similar to the spitting cobra and some kind of napalm like venom, coupled with a spark producing tooth system like some Mon Hon dragons have, you could have a biological flamethrower.But the durablity of a Dragon's mouth system would be so damn tough to withstand the heat.
>>32787022So what you're saying is T-Rex were master jousters?
>>32786986Fire retardant saliva, flammable liquid sprayed from glands under the tongue, and piezoelectric crystals in the roof of the mouth to discharge electricity when compressed by the tongue.
>>32786866There's lots of different kinds of poisons.Pufferfish extract. Frog poisons. Good old honest feces.At most you'd need two different types.
>>32786994How do they ignite it?
>>32786919No, I won't have this shit. Once a dirty savage T-Rex, always a dirty savage T-Rex. These beasts can't be reformed! Why, you turn your back on them and they'll tail-whip you into a den of Velociraptors!
>>32786674Its a cassowary god!
>>32786988Needs moar feathers.
>>32787086Spark producing teeth!
>>32787047The smart ones like >>32786988 would be. Sure they are noble, but they are not stupid.
>>32787034Why is it infantile and retarded?Or rather, more than dice-rolling and roleplaying?
>>32787034So basically your argument that it's easy to kill, trap, explode and poison large dragons, Hydras, chimera, Wyverns and the like is..... That if they don't ACT like Large Dragons, Hydras, Chimera and Wyverns, then they're easy?>>32787078Perhaps, I'm not saying you cannot posion them, I'm just saying if you need a rare puffer-fish extract to effectively poison say, a Chimera. You have alot of trouble transporting that crap to the area where the Chimera is.Of course you can go full autism mode and assume you have a modern infastructure to counter creatures obviously a threat to people of lesser technology.
>>32787078Actually feces as a poison is mostly useless.As for the others, they're certainly dangerous, but you people seem to be implying that you could actually use them for hunting.You can't.I mean you could put that in their food and kill them I guess, but we were talking about coating an arrow in something and then shooting it.That doesn't work.
>>32787034Whoa, whoa whoa whoa WHOA! You're saying that non realistic fantasy settings are inherently infantile and retarded?Captcha: taicdo Stanis
>>32784384Hey, you're the one who hired Genoese crossbowmen and Milanese bravos to form the core of your army, m'lord.
>>32787133Pyrophoric teeth?So what, their teeth are made out of steel or something?Sweet!
>>32787034There you have it folks.The Slaying of Large Monsters who don't act like Mammoths is infantile and retarded.Fighting a dragon? You're having BADWRONG fun.>>32787181Frogs have venomous skin just so you know. Puffer fish are toxic though, not poisonous if I can recall.
>>32787034Can you harvest and apply snake poison safely with Middle Age Tech?Also, it's been said before, but traps+explosives IS a thing in Monster Hunter. A very crucial step in killing a monster, in fact.And the topic was about using swords/chainmail, so I don't know why you assumed modern tech equipment would be fair play. If you're going to use it, sure, but that doesn't mean you won any arguement.
>>32786999T-rexes didn't exist?Why do you need anything bigger than T-rexes?Or bigger than Amphicoelias fragillimus for that matter which was significantly larger than a T-rex.Those things existed despite square-cube law.>If you allow for realism to take over, its done.It really isn't, if you're ready to work with it.>Dragons can't breath fire man. They can't fly.Both of those things are possible, they just didn't happen. Just like Unicorns are absolutely 100% possible. They just didn't come about for X reasons.I don't like my dragons larger than, say, a small T-rex anyway and if we apply hollow bones and bones consisting of an abnormal material, there's no problem, to a point.>But there are also huge weapons, because it's just as fun.I disagree, it's degrading. We can do better and we should.
>>32787214Hell yeah! They eat adventurers sent to kill them, their teeth get slowly covered in a thick covering of bits of plate armor and swords
>>32787178chimera is going to be WAY rarer than the puffer fish.
>>32787214Probably more like they'd have a few that act like flint and spark against each other. Like how birds have the break-out-of-their-egg tooth that falls off.
>>32787214Maybe.The Biology of a dragon could be crazy, we already have Iron beetles and the bones of Humans are a rock.Hell, perhaps infantile dragons gorge on flint deposits and keep two stones between their teeth?
>>32787225No see, both are toxic.Okay?Toxins are naturally produced poisons.Even then, no one actually gives a shit about the difference between venom, poison, and toxin.
>>32787252...Pssst.That's what pyrophoric means.
Well, it makes a difference if a toxin has to be ingested rather than injected, since it'd be pretty useless to put on an arrow then.
>>32786988Awesome contribution drawfag!
>>32787243Somebody never played Dragon's Dogma.Chimera fucking everywhere.>>32787267Sorry, one is dangerous because it goes into the system via ingestion. One is dangerous because it can enter the blood stream.
>>32787241>I disagree, it's degradingHow the hell is it degrading?
>>32787305Now you're fucking around with the difference between venom and poison, and its still not accurate by the by.Just...Just stop.
>>32787290In this moment I am pyrophoric
>>32787267 is in reply to>>32787305
>>32787339Don't you tell me what my post is a reply to. Especially when that thing is later.>>32787359>M'ember
>>32787353I don't pretend to know much about toxins venoms or poisons.All I know is some work some ways and some work others.
>>32787178>So basically your argument that it's easy to kill, trap, explode and poison large dragons, Hydras, chimera, Wyverns and the likeI never said it was easy. I said it's the only alternatives that makes sense (that I could think of just now).>if they don't ACT like Large Dragons, Hydras, Chimera and WyvernsLast I checked no one had decided that these creatures must be portrayed exactly one way and no other.>I'm just saying if you need a rare puffer-fish extract to effectively poison say, a Chimera. You have alot of trouble transporting that crap to the area where the Chimera is.In a world where these monsters existed, there would be a market for those kinds of things. They wouldn't be available in just any corner shop, sure, but if your occupation was at all in any way to deal with these creatures, you would come in contact with people who could procure you these poisons. People are crafty like that.>>32787181>Actually feces as a poison is mostly useless.I guess that's why so many US soldiers died from feces-covered hidden spikes in Vietnam.Infection is a hell of a killer.I never said anything about coating arrows with poison. I'm talking about poison in conjunction with traps. Hidden spikes, pit falls, etc.Because applying traditional hunter techniques, aka "let's go out and shoot it" (especially considering you'd at best have crossbows), is stupid in this context.
>>32787382Cut me some slack, I'm posting from a particularly shitty tablet.
>>32785000such is the span of their reign
>>32787188I'm saying that settings that ignore commons sense and verisimilitude are inherently infantile and retarded. There's a distinction.>>32787225>huuurrra durrrrpSo you didn't read it. I guess I can't expect more from retards.>>32787240>Also, it's been said before, but traps+explosives IS a thing in Monster Hunter. A very crucial step in killing a monster, in fact.That's fairly moot since apparently being hit head on by a creature many times your size and surviving is also a thing there.
>>32787402Not him, but while shit can be used to deadly effect, it's gonna take a good bit of time to do so, and if you dohave the time to follow this thing for the days or weeks it takes for an infection to fester enough to be lethal, any meat you might want is now infected.
>>32787319Just like watching Bleach or thinking McDonalds is the height of culinary finesse or that Sword of Truth is a good fantasy series is degrading.
>>32787402>Argues that large monsters must only be killed via trapping, poison and explosives like C4>Says to stop assuming Large monsters all work the same>And that people suddenly have expert modern day goods transport services.>Infection>Poison>>32787482>You didn't read my post where I assume everything goes my way and you're wrong because of that.>That's fairly moot since apparently being hit head on by a creature many times your size and surviving is also a thing there.Has it come to your head yet that maybe said humans in the setting are far more durable than humans NOT in a fantasy setting? Or are you still mad about them being able to wield really really big swords made of bits of other monsters?
>>32787402If a game involves a mythological creature i would expect it to act like a mythological creature.
>>32787528He doesn't like magic or high fantasy apparently. Just ignore him. Probably plays some rules free system and thinks he's a better gamer for it.
>>32787510>any meat you might want is now infected.Absolutely, the only reason I mentioned it is I was asked to kill these things, not hunt them for their meat.If we're talking hunting for meat and spoils then traps, big-ass rocks and whatever the closest thing to explosives is would be my preferred choice.
>>32787517I guess liking Tolkien is Degrading then?Because Dragons, Fire Demons and such are beaten by swords and spears, not by C4 and rare puffer fish extracts farmed to high enough standards to poison them?
>>32787241>>32787482What verisimilitude? A dragon could not fly, even T-Rex sized.Because its wings would have been bigger than a 747.And surviving is a game mechanic. There is little info regarding what actually happens to hunters when hit.
>>32787400Poison means it's poison.It has some sort of negative effect, it disturbs an organism.Cyanide is poison, technically so is Uranium.Toxins are produced by a living thing (Be it bacteria, vegetable, reptile, mammal, what have you). Puffer fish poison, bee venom, and Necrotizing fasciitis are all toxinsVenom is injected by a living creature.Them's the general rules.
>>32787594>Dragons, Fire Demons>beaten by swords and spearsThat pretty much doesn't even happen once. They're beating my laserskyships and SuperElvenSuperPowers and whatever have you.But at least Tolkien has enough good taste to not fit normal humans with gargantuan weaponry.
>>32787594I'm only vaguely following this argument, but doing the 'OH SO IF YOU THINK X IS SHIT THEN YOU MUST THINK TOLKIEN IS SHIT TOO' is about as bad as 'OH SO YOU LIKE X THING? WELL SO DID HITLER'.
>>32787657Hitler liked fine art, women, and dogs.Well, shit.
>>32787650But sky boats with lasers is fine? Nigger, if I showed you that in a weaboo thing, you'd hate it too. Like in say Final Fantasy. They have those. And crazy big swords.I mean, I don't even like wrong depictions of swordfighting, but you're such a cunt, I find myself defending Final Fantasy.
>>32787672He also liked breathing.
>>32787650Okay. We get it. You don't like big weapons. You look down on people who do. That's great.We're all proud of you and you have way better taste than everyone else in the whole world.You can leave now so we can talk about dinosaurs dual-wielding spears for the good of his noble house.
>>32787630And toxic is just poison
>>32787630Ah... no. It's much simpler than that. Poison is ingested, venom is applied to you.A snake is venomous, cause he bites you. A toad is poisonous cause you have to eat him to die of it.
>>32787630So as you can see:If it's a venom, it's a toxin, if it's a toxin it's probably poison.They're not exclusive terms, it's not one or another.>>32787402>I guess that's why so many US soldiers died from feces-covered hidden spikes in Vietnam.Well the feces had little to do with it.I mean it certainly didn't help, but a wound that got infected because of Punji stick impalement was going to get infected regardless of the application of feces.
>>32787598I'll admit I'm not particularly familiar with the physics, or biology, of flight in particular, but I'm pretty damn sure that you could make halfway realistic allowances for at least creatures that are somewhat bigger than bears to have winged flight.But I'm probably going to look into it now.
>>32787578So what if you're fighting something like this?How are you going to get big rocks to hit it? How are you going to explode it enough?>>32787650Nigger are you retarded? Ancalogon The Black was beaten by a Eärendil surfing a Great Eagle. not a fucking laserskyship or SuperElvenSuperPowers
>>32787650What makes you think the humans in monster hunter are normal humans?They can wield massive weapons with ease take blows that should leave them cripple if not dead repeatedly and hold their breath for incredible lengths while engaged in strenuous physical activity.I'm pretty sure monster hunter humans are far and above normal.
>>32787696I really don't think a Tyrannosaurus could get any real force behind a spear, or any weapon, considering he doesn't have opposing thumbs to grip them with.
>>32787735Sure you can.But they're not going to be bulky like a dragon in the slightest.Most large flying creatures were thin and fuck.
>>32787685Who said I found them fine? Who says I don't already hate parts of Tolkiens fiction?I do give him some concessions, though, considering he was pretty much exploring unmapped territory. We deserve better today, by all means.
>>32787736An airship with giant adamantium harpoons attached to adamantium chains
>>32787761What if they apply some form of gauntleted grip?
>>32787756I've always theorized that the monster hunter world is a much smaller one than ours with a much greater amount of oxygen in it's atmosphere.Hence the massive flora and fauna as well as lower gravity.
>>32787768>were thin and fucksounds funSo what's wrong with thin dragons? Sounds refreshing to me.
>>32787761We've already discussed this. He can because reasons.
>>32787712WRONG.STOP SAYING THINGS.YOU WRONGWRONG PERSON.You are misapplying that rule of thumb, it's to differentiate when something is a venom and when it isn't.All venoms, are by their very nature, also poisons.
>>32787777I don't think you deserve better. Nice quads though.
>>32787789That could work, and even in this case you wouldn't be losing anything really. Sometimes its a good thing to be able to use your sword hand, I don't see that being the case for mr. rex.
This thread started off well with the t rex coming from a noble family and shit, but now the autism of tg got too much and the thread lost its potential.Atleast I have the first 50 posts unspoiled.
>>32787736>So what if you're fighting something like this?I'm not touching stuff that are 100% impossible.You wouldn't need to fight that thing since it would collapse on itself and die, slowly, alone.
>>32787795Because they'd all be sort of this shape.Not really a king under the mountain is he?>>32787836I guess you don't run many fun /tg/ games do you?
>>32787798>>32787789>>32787761we don't know what all he can do with those two fingers or how much pressure he can exert with themthere's no reason to say he couldn't grasp them with his two digits, squeezing the spears tightly enough to keep them steady
>>32787835>A reasonable discussion on what you would realistically need to kill big monsters in pseudo-reality>BAWWW YOU'RE NOT STROKING MY SHITTY T-REX DICK
>>32787866There's also the possibility that the spear is tied to his hand or something.
>>32787836>I'm not touching stuff that are 100% impossible.Like giant flying fire breathing lizards and giant snakes that grow more heads for each you cut off.You know dragons and hydras.
>>32787889It's just you being a dickhead though.Realistic monsters is an oxymoron.
>>32787866>Pictured here is the results of the iner species relationship between the humans and T-rexes. Where interspecies marriage became something not just for nobles and kings wishing to exert their influence
>>32787836Depends on the world though. Maybe the gravity on the planet is less and thats why the humans can use huge weapons. Maybe the humans and the weapons are actually tiny, and thats just a garter snake as seen by a tiny human.
>>32787862I don't see why the long neck is necessary. Other than that, it looks fine.>I guess you don't run many fun /tg/ games do you?All the time, and people always appreciate them and compliment my attention to detail. How's them apples?
>>32787907Bullshit, take one look at a shark and tell me that's not a sea monster.
>>32787920Sounds like you should become a writefag, your imagination is so vivid.
>>32787889>Pseudo-realityThat's a funny phrase considering the guy is complaining these giant fanatical monsters are not 100% acting under 100% realism and the idea that maybe you might need big weapons to kneecap some of the monsters because traps don't kill them off much is an infantile concept.

>>32787982That T-rex is a qt.
>>32787963Neither of those things negate it from being a monster. It can have a necessary place in its environment and it can have a respectable power to it, but at the end of the day it's a bunch of teeth with fins that will take my arm off without a second thought, and that's a monster in my book.
>>32787963Sharks aren't very efficient I'd argue.They're not maximizing the potential of what they kill.Rather they leave an awful lot of potential nourishment for other animals to eat, and their digestions aren't actually very good at processing what they do get.They've adapted to that by being really vicious and downsizing their demand for nourishment.
>>32787889Thank you for proving me point.

>>32786219Squabbling humans will no doubt be a familiar sight to a royal family member. You forget about all the political bullshit they have to deal with outside of combat.
>>32788078I don't understand your dnd point therebut if we think a t-rex knight is formidable, wait until you see their mechs
>>32788245people were arguing about what is and isn't a monster.also: dat some zoids?
>>32788196>It should be said that T-Rexian noble house meetings, such as The Grand Gathering, are remarkably civil, though there are no small amounts of witty insults and passive-aggressive remarks. On one such occasion, a representative of House Recstofan was told of of a noble of the Starle clan that if he, the representative of Recstofan was a man of Starle stature, he would meet in an open forum. The representative of Recstofan remarked in return, "If I was a man of Starle stature, I would need much wider doors in my manor."
>>32788303Zoids? What? No.That's the Royal Mobile Suit Corps of the house of RecstofenYou can tell by their dragon seal on the flagsSpeaking of which: t-rexes who worship dragons as the great progenitor race.Half-dragon t-rexes.

Estimated teegian folks.I am a student of human-non human race relations and I have several questions regarding T-Rexes. I'd be glad if you answered them.Are all T-Rexes noble or are there peasants too? Are feathers a sign of status, gender or is it vanity like human hair?
>>32789775>Are all T-Rexes noble well not all are noble in demeanor, but all are of royal descent, yes>Are feathers a sign of status, gender or is it vanity like human hair?like birds, the males are far more colorful and have more plumage whereas the females look more muted in comparisonplumage is indeed a sign of status as well as virility and keeping oneself well-groomed is a matter of great import
>>32786912How would feathers be an advantage?I don't see how they'd be selected in such a climate over plain old scales.
