Is there an objectively best char gen system?
>>56659805Yeah.One that doesn't include shit like Sandy Loam.
It's not even the best soil classification chart, I don't think it's going to be best anything.
>>56659805you just posted it
>>56659805Rolling for Silty Clay.
>>566598056 x 3d6 assign.
>>56659868>Silty ClayYou are worse than the SLfags
>>56659805I think Traveller is the most fun chargen, of all the systems I've played.
>>56659939I bet you like Skub.
1. Write a compelling backstory2. Assign whatever stats you think fit that backstory3.The GM sets the initial difficulty to whatever arbitrary powerlevel the party happened to end up.
As a down to earth kind of guy I'm rolling for regular clay.
>>56659983>Sk_bNobody likes that shit, as it should be
100% clay master race reporting in!
>>56660000I guess we'll have to take your advice, Ultra-Satan 10,000.
>percent bones of human sacrifice >50% >terra preta
>>56659851Post a better one.
>>56660632Sure, here's the USCS. AASHTO also has one but it's wack.
>>56661018Whoops forgot my picture.
>>56659805Wow, this is some real autism here. Is this your shitty homebrew, or just a horrendous weeb system no one's heard of before?>clay dominating most of the chart and surrounded only by smaller class types for it to bully>faggots who think sandy loam and loamy sand are different fucking things>support for "i can't possibly pick one thing, but I also need to be the most special snowflake" classes sandy clay loam and silty clay loam>allowing players to play Sand at all>>56661038What the fuck am I looking at here, GURPS? When I'm enough of a simulationist to care about fucking plasticity, I'll get a quad-core processor imbedded in my grey matter.
>>56661146>he can't even run a sieve analysis for a soilBro, I think this might be too deep for you. You're probably better off sticking to Ace of Spades or something.
>>56661038THIS ISN'T FUCKING READABLE
>>56661038Your post is PRIMARILY ORGANIC MATTER (dark in color and organic odor), if you know what I'm sayin'. >>56661146>That one hipster who always plays Pete "Peat" Patterson.
It's all dirt.
>>56661201>It's all dirt.
>>56661201>dirtFucking plebs. It's called soil, motherfuckers.
>>56661241Why the fuck they haven't released a splatbook for Martian or Moon soils yet is beyond me
>>56661038>sieve size expressed in inches
>>56659805Yes, and it's called QAPF
Rolled 21 (1d80)>>56659805Right, there are 80 triangles there. So, rolling for class...
>>56661455Clay. 50-60 clay, 20-30 sand, 20-30 silt
>>56661366That's good but i prefer the spinoff
Just stopping by to let you guys know this is one of the best threads on /tg right now. Thanks guys
>>56660380What porn is that from?
>>56659805>ywn have sandy silty clay loam
>>56659805The Traveller Char gen system is pretty excellent. Either Classic edition or Mongoose.Its partially out of the players hands which is nice, and provides a fairly complete back story for each character generated.
>>56662203Kys yourself twice.
>>56661337that chart is clearly from 70 years ago
>>56662238It's not an excuse to post an outdated system
>>56662004Non ci indurre in tentazione
>>56659805Been a while since I saw the last >OP makes the classic mistakethread here
>>56660000>checkedquads of truth, right here
>>56661664>Not Found In NatureWell I'm an edgelord so I know what I'm playing now!
>>56661664this is some right saucy stone chart
>>56659805100 sand is Best, ITS PURE!
>>56659805Only if you're willing to take alternate EXP charts.
>>56662983man this is some DBZ Power Level shitis there anything that goes even further beyond?
>>56662983>the lowest non-zero items are still 100 or moreWhy don't you knock two or three numbers off the end there, squirrely Dan
>>56662403>Clayey soilsThe fuck is this shit?>>56662983>measuring pepper spray strength by scoville units and not % total dissolved capsaicinoids Totally retarded. It would be like classifying fuel with a "smell test" of the crude oil used to produce it, instead of by the mass of the constituent hydrocarbons. "1 gorillion scoville units" means nothing if the solution is diluted to .1% capsaicinoids.
>>56663047Yes, actually, there are ones above pure Capasaicin.Tinyatoxin, found in Euphorbia poissonii, registers at an equivalent to 5.3 billion Scovilles.Resiniferatoxin, found both in Euphorbia resinifera and Euphorbia poissonii, goes as high as 16 billion Scovilles. 10 grams of it is potentially fatal.
classic blunder OPwe Dirtpunk now
>>56663047https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resiniferatoxin>Resiniferatoxin is a naturally occurring chemical found in resin spurge, a cactus-like plant commonly found in Morocco.>It is an ultrapotent analogue of capsaicin, the active ingredient in chili peppers.>Having a score of 16 billion Scoville units, pure resiniferatoxin is approximately 3 orders of magnitude (1000 times) hotter than pure capsaicin.>It causes severe burning pain in sub-microgram (less than 1/1,000,000th of a gram) quantities when ingested orally.
>>56663164Cuz, cuz of like science, man. It's all related to concentrations or some SHIT like that.
>>56663164127 is prettier than 1.27
>>56659805This thread makes me moist.
>>56663197>>56663268damn nature, you both scary and apparently some kind of dumb shounen battle series
>>56662983>>56663197>>56663268There's also baby tier spice chemicals that rank much lower on the scoville scale. >piperine (black pepper) >gingerol (ginger)>cinnamaldehyde (cinnamon)
>>56663293The scoville scale is pretty bullshit, it depends on human tasters instead of any actual concentration levels.Also if your values are going to go that high you should probably make your scale logarithmic.
>>56663164it's not how that worksThe (classic) scoville scale is measured in terms of the amount of water required to dilute the flavor of the spice out of existence. *reformed* scoville is measured as an expression of quantity of capsaicin in a sample size, but classic is much more appealing.Basically, if you put 1 drop of Pimento into a cup, it only takes a scant 100-ish drops of water to eliminate the flavor.meanwhile, one drop of Cayenne pepper takes about a liter and a half of water to dilute. (20,000 "drops" is roughly 1 liter of water).
>>56663418Really it should be a dB scale based on concentration and relative to the minimum detectable level of spiciness a la sound intensity.
>>56659805Hope I’m rolling right for my kind of dirt. Here’s my cat.
Rolled 9, 6, 4 = 19 (3d10)>>56663608
>>56659805Goddammit, I'm taking a class in soil science this semester and can't get away from that. Also, soil near my apartment is sandy loam, shit sucks.
>>56663177>The fuck is this shit?You know how sometimes your digging and its in an area thats got just regular dirt but it sticks to your tools like a fucking magnet and sucks ass?Thats what happens when the soil is kind of clayey. Its not quite clay but its claylike in its properties.
>>56663177If they've diluted it, then it's got a lower Scoville number. Pretty much the definition of Scoville units.
Rolled 132 + 1 (1d177 + 1)>>56659805>>56661366>>56661664When you're done playing with dirt and rocks, try a real character gen system. Rolling for stable metal...
Rolled 88 + 1 (1d118 + 1)>>56663903Damn, you can't roll 2 different dice in 1 post? or am I just dumb? Rolling for protons, I guess.
>>56663293is that the guy that played Gordon on Halt and Catch Fire?
>>56663608That's a cute catter, anon
>>56663990Radium 220. A half life of only 18 miliseconds and it decays into a gas. Could be worse, I guess.

>>566645712nd, fuck...aaaaand not on the chart. Bummer.
>>56662585You literally can't do that shit, fucktard. Go read the basic rulebook, page 94 under the "Thermodynamics" rules section.
>>56659805Oh god, my soils class is fucking following me to my time wasting area!
>>56661146>He thinks Sandy Loam and Loamy Sand are the samesmuganimegirl.jpeg
>>56663903Me and my players were starting a campaign with this system, we have a REE, a LILE, a PGE and a Semiconductor so they fill all the roles pretty nicely even though they are pretty light on electricity users. I didn't want to make them start with the classic "you're in a tavern on a grain boundry" and then send them to the closest crystalline reticule so how should i make start the campaign? It's going to be a dislocation creep campaign so very light on roleplay more combat to familiarize with the system.
>>56659805I came here to ask why there was a ternary phase diagram on a /tg/ thread about character creations systems but turns out I'm the crazy one as it's a feature not a bug.
>>56662983As someone who used to put ghost peppers (before they were fucking cool, fight my hipster ass) on his pizza, jalapeno is still the best pepper. So much fucking flavor. It's also the cut off for what I can rub against my dick.
>>56661038Nice meme>>56661183You don't know how to read a table anon ?
Rolled 170 + 1 (1d177 + 1)>>56663903Lets see if I get something that exists. And if mixed dice work
Rolled 1 + 108 (1d5 + 108)>>56670330Mixed dice don't, but that means I can roll something that exists
>>56670330>>56670347170 (ignoring the +1), 109... Meitnerium 279, an only theoretically existing isotope of Meritnerium (278 is confirmed though), itself an extremely radioactive synthetic element found as a fission product
>>56668761I have a carolina reaper plant fite me feget
Rolled 58, 38, 99 = 195 (3d100)rolling for Clay, Silt, Sand
>>56670805Wait that doesn't work at all...
>>56670805>>56670826I don't see a problem here. 99/195=51% sand, 58/195=30% clay and 19% silt
>>56670883Because all the percentages are tied to one another. You cant plot your result on the graph.
>>56670928Only if you treat them as percentages and not fractions, like I just did.
>>56671000See >>56670883 So >>56670805 would be sandy clay loam.
ive never been to /tg/ outside of a few cyoag threads, and wow i have never been so confused trying to figure out what the fuck is goin on in a thread as i am right now
>>56671130Welcome to /tg/ - /tectonics and geology/
>>56670883Nice I getcha.>>56670947You take the single rolls and work out what percentage of the total roll those are and plot those percentages.
>>56671169That reminds me
>>56671229This is a blue board you sick fucking pervert
>>56659805The H-R system is the best racial generator of the century
Rolled 2, 68, 97 = 167 (3d100)>>56670883Am I right in thinking you could do this for >>56661664 aswell3d100, convert them to % then use that % of whichever axis it was the roll for?
>>56671298That's a normal chart with two independent axis. So you'd just use 2d100(or d#whatever) normally.
>>56671293The fluid branching job system from the creators is retarded as fuck though
>>56671298never mind I'm an idiot it's only 2 axis not 3, i think i've been reading too much today and my brain has turned to sandy clay loam.
>>56671267Too late, I'm at half mast. Someone post tileguy.
>>56671010Hybrid classes are retarded, you either spec Sandy Clay or spec Clay Loam it doesn't make sense to combine them
>>56671454Going hybrid does play a bit of a part as it can give access to sub-classes.Sandy loam soils for example can be split into four variants, coarse sandy loam, sandy loam, fine sandy loam, and very fine sandy loam.So if there is a high enough sand stat for what would otherwise just be Clay Loam it can allow entries into these.
>>56671454What is REALLY retarded are the super snowflake ones like Peat and Chalk.If a player straight out of the gate wants either of those despite the setting showing them as extremely rare or non-existent it's a bit of a red flag.
>There are people there who still unironically defend the roll 3d6 assign ideaHoly shit dude it's a holdover from when D&D was a vastly different game than it is now and it's no longer viable in a system where abilities effect much more of what you roll.The ONLY benefit it offers you is the ability to randomly generate a character but it's such a meaningless set of numbers. They don't even inform your characters background!
>>56659805Who /special snowflake sand/ here?Loamy sand is cool too but sandy loamfags need to gtfo
>>56661320There's a Russian splat for Venusian soil, but it's written in scribble language and I hear the content is mostly toxic.
we /geo/ nowall hail soilpunk
>>56671726What the fuck did you just fucking say about venitian plaster, you little bitch? I’ll have you know my white ancestors used venitian plaster, and I’ve been involved in numerous German architechture projects using venitian plaster. I made my first house out of venitian plaster when I was 16 in an Alaskan forest.. You are nothing to me but just another nigger. I will plaster you the fuck out with venice the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with talking shit about venitian plaster to me over the Internet? Think again, nigger. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of architects across Germany and your mud hut is being traced right now so you better prepare for the plaster, nigger. The plaster that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your mud hut. You’re fucking dead, nigger. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can make venitian plaster over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in venitian architechture, but I have access to the entire arsenal of German architects and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable mud hut off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn nigger. I will shit venitian plaster all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.
