>Get invited to play in a guy's homebrew system>Get the files, look them over>Hundreds of different spells>21 different stats>Skills, maneuvers, spells, talents, abilities, and racials are all different kinds of attacks>One of the spells is named Orb of the Albino DoomgoatI don't know what to think.
>>57558728tell us more of this orb
>>57558728Combat does not a system make
That sounds kind of fascinating OP. Does it actually seem functional, or is it obviously an unbalanced mess of kludged together ideas from other games?
>>57558728Don't think, just play the damn game and let us know how it went, you fucking coward.Everyone on /tg/ nowadays complains "DON'Y PLAY DUND, DON'T USE A BAD SYSTEM, DON'T LISTEN TO THOSE GUYS LISTEN TO ME" and then they don't follow through on anything. So play the damn game, try and have some fun, and get pback to us with a tale of some guys homebrew that might actually turn out okay because he's a pretty good GM. Fuck all the social engineers and system shills, fucking PLAY.
>>57558728Well come on, you can't post a name like "Orb of the Albino Doomgoat" and not tell us about it.
>>57558728Does the spell create a concentrated orb of the essence of an albino doomgoat, or does it trap the target with an albino doomgoat in an unbreakable orb?I can't tell which is worse.
>>57558779This. Just go for it, OP. Game sounds like it'll be a lot of fun.
Ask him to email you his notes so you can familiarise yourself with the spells and then upload it for us.
>>57558736>>57558790>>57558809Here's the text>ORB OF THE ALBINO DOOMGOAT>Level: 8>Element: Dark>Type: Invocation>Cast: 7>Mana: 14>Range: 10 squares>Area: See text>Group: Offensive>Duration: See Text>Stealth: No>Damage: See text>You create a breach in barrier between dimensions and momentarily allow Say-Tyr to exert his power in the Prime Realm. Say-Tyr manifests as an eight-legged goat the size of a semitruck with white fur. His twelve horns are extremely elaborate and stretch well beyond the back of his body, and are decorated with tattoos and murals. Each of his high priests since the beginning of time has added one new picture to the horns. An shimmering orb of 5x5 squares surrounds him.>Say-Tyr will not follow your orders and will do as he pleases. Attempting to command him or use any kind of conjuration-controlling spell will cause him to target you. Otherwise he will under nearly all circumstances charge in a line of 30 squares before disappearing. Nothing can stop him except terrain blocking effects that explicitly say they are immune to damage.>Anyone caught in the line takes [Your Level x100]+2000 damage. They can roll a Physical Resistance check with a -65 penalty to halve the damage. Anyone caught in the orb that surrounds him takes half the normal damage and the resistance check is at -32.>Additionally, Say-Tyr's bleating forces anyone caught in the orb to roll a mental resistance check with a -65 penalty. Success immunizes the target. Failure causes the target to become a goat. This is permanent but can be dispelled normally. If a target is turned into a goat and killed by the damage of this spell, he is permanently killed (in goat form) and his soul is claimed by the Bovidae Dimension to become one of Say-Tyr's harem. Deafness makes you immune.
>>57558969...Fuckin' incredibleGive us more OP. Tell us how this work of mad genius functions.
>>57558969... I love it.
>>57558728Please tell me it's d20 based
>>57558969You'd have to be a moron not to try this. And post the PDFs while you're at it.l
>>57559133You'd figure it'd be the Capra or Caprinae dimension. Bovidae is the family and is so broad that it covers a lot more than just goats. Then again, a separate dimension full of ibexes, goats, cows and such is funny as fuck.
>>57558969Fuck yeah. This homebrew system sounds amazing. Make your character an adherent to/believer of Say-Tyr's almighty goatness.
>>57559167Say-Tyr is a mighty god, but his grasp of taxonomy is fucking terrible.
>>57559167Musk for the Muskox god!
>>57559189DO NOT QUESTION THE MIGHTY SAY-TYR!
>>57559167Is this whole thing.... a secret cow level joke?
>>57559223mother of god
>>57559223Son of a bitch he's a genius.
>>57558728>>57558969Well for one thing, you're getting that Spell. No two ways about it.
>>57558728play this gamesounds fucking awesome
OP, deliver a PDF. Because this sounds both awesome, and as terrifying as that guy who used a program to actually make FATAL characters.
>>57559304>that guy who used a program to actually make FATAL characterswhat
>>57559223The absolute madman.
What are the stats?, tell us more
>>57559346Years ago, some guy found a way to actually make characters in FATAL. He somehow retained his sanity.
>>57559454>he somehow retained his sanityI don't believe you.
>>57558969That's fucking sick
>>57558969The harem took me by such surprise that I actually laughed out loud.
>>57558969Time to make a devout follower of the MIGHTY SAY-TYR
>>57559346The guys behind FATAL put out a simple command-line program to roll yourself up a character in short time.>>57559466I've tried manually doing it. It's not sanity-breaking, just really fucking dull.
>>57558969invite me to the game, anon
>>57558969im not fucking with ya id play in a game that has this kind it spell. fucking amazing.
>>57558969Anon please, do yourself a favor and take a seat at this guy's table. Either it will be a gigantic failure of monumental proportions with potential for infinite lulz or you might y'know, actually have a good time with a wellprepared homebrew setting. The guy obviously puts in a lot of effort and time into his setting.And please whatever you do, whatever happens. Post those rule PDF's. /tg/ needs it.
>>57558969This game sounds amazing.Not Dogs in the Vineyard: well developed and simple-type amazing. More like E.Y.E. Divine Cybermancy: what the fuck is going on, why are there so many goddamn stats, why is there a scope on the minigun, spells that teleport you inside people, and even though I got the true ending I'm still not sure what the fucking game was about but I had fun-type of amazing.Definitely give it a few sessions.
>>57560266Escape your cycles of guilt
>>57558969Could you post the text of any more spells?Because this is just so amazing, I've just gotta know more.
>>57558969>eight-legged goat the size of a semi truck with white furHuh
OP here. Sorry, I didn't make it clear that the files are split into like thirty PDFs. Some are many, many pages and some are only one or two pages. Here's the stat doc because someone asked for it specifically.
>>57560609Not the most complex stat system I've seen, better than Eoris.
>>57558969screencapping so future generations may know of this madness
>>57560609Thanks based anon.
>>57560609>ENS: Governs ethereal nervous systemIs this necessary?, sounds like the typical arbitrary magic stat that only works in magical situations.>All those stats that are basically the same thing or could be easily merged into a single statIs your GM autistic?>Physical Power: Strenght + Composture???
>>57560915>Is your GM autistic?hi, i'm new to /tg/, so i think i can bring some fresh perspective to this problem. yes, the guy who came up with this stuff is autistic, probably severely.
This is bait. It can only be bait.Look at ALL THOSE USELESS STATS!
>>57561020>>57560915>>57560681>remove dexterity and reflex, keep agility and alertness>remove ENS>rename Thought to Creativity>merge Deceit and Presence with Charismabetter?
>>57560609>Luck: Governs luck
>this whole threadMore. I need to see all of it. All the crazy shit this fucking madman thought up. OP, if you don't deliver I'll fucking crucify you.
>>57561126I'd say that's good.well aside from maybe the charisma thing, maybe merge them all into will or something like that, because of the fucking idiotic thing of folks still thinking charisma=beauty.
>>57561248Guys. What if, we take his crazy... And add our own to it. Give him an expanded universe.
>>57558728>>57558969I'm so glad I only just started a campaign in a fresh homebrew setting with nothing much to go on. I am stealing this idea and nothing and nobody will stop me.
>>57559466I'm pretty sure I have the program on my old hard drive
>>57561270Being picky, I think that beauty shouldn't even be a stat, it should be a situational modifier. Also I would merge Luck into Understanding because I don't like the idea of a stat being "external" to the character, if a character is to bend his fate I´d rather manage it in a more personal way.
>>57560915>Is your GM autistic?Come on, the GOAT spell was enough of a giveaway.Not because of the goat, or summoning a god and becoming part of his harem, or the cow dimension, but because of how many silly stats appear in the spell.It's needlessly complicated.
>>57561275How about we give him a better system instead.If OP ever throws us the pdfs of the setting, maybe we can make the mechanics lighter and actually playable.Cut away the shit, keep the mad genius, you know
>>57561275We would need more info for that, it would be silly to try it with just the albino goat.
>>57558728Post the whole spell list anon
>>57558969>Say-Tyr will not follow your orders and will do as he pleases.
>>57559189Taxonomy is a false god anyway
>>57561542Taxonomy is Theft
>>57561547kek'd in Say-Tyr's name
>>57558969>Each of his high priests since the beginning of time has added one new picture to the horns.Say-Tyr allows his High Priest to decorate him? That's sweet.
>>57561560Not gonna lie, iam stealing that idea about the horn decorating thing.
I highly suspect anon wont deliver. This sounds too good to be true and just a means of generating (You) s
>>57561603He already shared a pdf
>>57561664It's only 1 page with nothing but statlist.I for one would love to see the whole spell list.
>ITT: Retards get tricked into thinking the made up story in the OP is real and isn't just invented to get (You)s
>>57561603this. OP needs to cough up at least 7 more spells or be deemed a faggot.
>>57558969>>57561560Wait. If Say-Tyr is the size of a semitruck like the description says, and is assumedly some ancient godlike entity, how is it that there's any room left for his worshippers to draw on his horns? It's not like he's Godzilla sized or anything, they'd run out of space pretty quickly after a decade or so.
>>57561757Who gives a fuck, I want him to keep it up
>>57561767One image per one high priest, of which presumably exists only one at a time,to go onto aspot on one of The Great And Mighty Say-Tyr's twelve hugeass horns which are longer than his body. I'd say they space runs out slower than you think.Plus, noone said priests don't draw over the previous priests' images.
>>57561767Nobody said Say-Tyr is actually an eight-legged goat that's as big as a semitruck. He just manifests his power in that shape and size for the duration, it's not like he physically steps through the portal created by the spell. Dude probably has infinity-sized horns.
>>57561767Maybe he cycles through them like a chameleon changing color.
>>57561757ITT: a few faggots actually care whether this is real or not, while everyone else enjoys it regardless
>>57561767Maybe there isn’t always a high priest all the time. Or maybe Say’tyr gives his high priests incredibly long lives? Who knows.
>>57558969IN THE NAME OF SAY-TYR THE ALMIGHTY POST MORETHIS IS WONDERFUL>>57560609>Deceit: Governs ability to lie>Charisma: Governs ability to persuade>2 different stats that should literally be the sameOh heavens, you're in for a wild ride. Go for it OP, I know I would.
I should get back too work on my home brew
>>57561757We don't do this for OP, we do this for Say-Tyr, lord of the Bovidae Dimension!
>>57558969So wait, what happens if two casters in different places cast this at the same time?
>>57560368It is true that I killed my master. But I am not his murderer.
>>57561410>Cut away the shit, keep the mad genius, you knowYou can't restrain the mad genius.
>>57562775The orbs move towards each other, collide, explode at 10x the size, and Say-Tyr now has an avatar on that plane.

Holy shit I'm jelly. I want a DM that would bust out a system like that.
>>57561275>I won't scatter your crazy to the heartless boards>We'll print rulebooks from your PDF's, and carry them to the table with us>We are all homebrew
>>57560609You only have to post the rest 29 now fag
>>57558728Cool goat, would sell soul to/10
>>57558969Jesus fuck, this is great.
Please mighty Say-Tir, let me be in the screencap.
>>57558969That's metal as fuck. Devote yourself to Say-Tyr.
>>57564513You shall live deliciously.
And I thought today would be unremarkable.Praise Say-Tyr.
>>57562775HEATHEN, mighty SAY-TYR can be in two places at once and CHARGE HIMSELF for 2000 damage BOTH WAYS if he so wills it!
Literal god of the neckbeards
If you're going to homebrew a system, you either need to come up with some airtight rules for letting players create their own spells, or you need to make assloads of pure golden spells like this.
>>57561791Yeah but the high priests have been doing it since the begining of time surely his horns must be filled up by now, also this>>57561859 You guys are clearly new to Orb of the Albino Doomgoat, I wouldnt use it until you've read it carefully
>>57565080The horns grow with faithfullness of Say-Tyrs followers and size of his harem. Obviously.
>>57563944At leadt 2100 assuming you don't start at level 0. Then again if what little we know is anything to go by this system might just be crazy enough to do that. Praise Say-Tyr.
>>57558969So it's an Ornn ult. I love it.
Speaking as a GM. Speaking as a GM.On one hand, you have space management done better than I could. Kudos to that.On the other hand, you've literally taken out practically everything that resembles player agency at the table. You've minimized the capacity for player discussion by locking attributes into specific boxes and left them up to the whim of PC stats more than they do your players. Are you trying to get them to play a video game or are you really trying your damnedest to run a fun session with your friends? A lot of this is unnecessary and shouldn't be there in the first place. I don't want to sound demeaning, but you've managed to become more cluttered than 4th ed. I wouldn't run a session with you with all that. It feels like there's too much that you've taken out of my hands and left to the dice.
>>57558969The orb is not really defined and thematically doesn't jive with the knock off black goat of the woods with 1000 young
Do you guys even play fucking games?
>>57558728Thank you OP, we may now close /tg for a day as nothing better will be created today.>>57565409No,I just shitpost about them cause I to antisocial to play.
>>57558969Sounds like one of these fuckers. Is your Gm a fan of Overlord?
>>57565531Oops I meant to include an image of the goats Ainz summons that SPLATS everything
>>57558969I am afraid to know what spells lie beyond level 8
>>57558969... It's a damned shame my reaction images aren't uploading.
>>57558969I can think of no more horrible fate than becoming part of a bisexual goat harem. What happens if everyone fails the roll and dies? Does the campaign become about escaping Say-Tyr's lecherous hooves?
Now I want to design a horrifically crunchy homebrew system of my own.
>>57565694>EscapeWhy would you want to?
>>57558728This sounds good OP. I would play this nonsense for one session, then quit.
>>57558969Never in the history of /tg/ has an OP delivered this hard.
>>57562775Say-tyr does as he pleases
>>57561505>>57561721>>57565201>>57563944There's actually some interesting implications from the two sets of data we've received. We see that it is a level 8 spell, which implies this is some sort of Vancian system. The question then becomes "what type of Vancian?"Let's look at 3 guesses: straight level, D&D style "double minus 1", and "squared" (You'll see why in a moment.)We know from the stat list that your mana is the average of your ENS and Composure. We also know that the maximum a stat can be, pre-racial modifiers, is 3 times your level. Let's assume maximised relevant stats, and look at the math. Straight level: At level 8, we can expect a caster to have a max of 24 mana. This spell uses 14 mana. That seems very mana hungry, but the other numbers make it obviously worth it.HP at level 8 maximizes at 192, and physical resistance at 24. Meaning it is impossible for any level 8 enemy or character to survive this spell. Potentially that's the point, but it seems slightly unlikely. in the D&D (double minus one) system, an 8th level spell is accessible at level 15.A level 15 mage maximized mana is 45, meaning this would be just under a third of their total mana. That's not unreasonable.Health maximizes at 675, and physical resistance at 45. These numbers make the saves make more sense, but the damage is still monstrous.At Square of spell, things get...interesting.Mana is 64, meaning this is roughly 21.8% of teh mana pool. Not unreasonable. HP is maximised at 12,288, and physical resistance at, well, 64. And THIS is where all the numbers make sense. the spell is dealing (at level 64) 8400 damage, or roughly 68% of a character's health, half on a save, and half that if simply in the orb. The save penalty is just beyond the raw ability max allowed, meaning the save HAS to be notable. Guys, I think this system reaches to level 100. It's only at level 64 this 8th level spell makes sense, given the data we have.
>>57566418>VancianI don't think that word means what you think it means.
OP can you post the document?
>>57560609Hold on a second, this says that stats are capped at your level x 3, yet you start with 200 stat points. Even if every point in a stat were to cost double the first one you'd still only need 108 to have all max stats at level 1, so how the hell are stat points related to actual stats?
>>57558969You see this?This is how spells SHOULD BE.
>>57558969At the risk of being THAT GUY wouldn't "tattoos" inscribed onto horns technically be scrimshaw?
>>57566418>vancian>mana Nigga what?
>>57566448Forgive me, I was imprecise, I meant that as the super-category for all the pseudo-Vancian systems used by D&D.
>>57566559Obviously the system assumes you start at a level higher than 1. Homebrew systems often don't make sense for extreme cases.
>>57566648vancian is spells per day, not manathat's like saying final fantasy is vancian
>>57566636See >>57566648Though, as a note, the fact that a spell specifies that it uses mana doesn't remove it from a Vancian system. For all we know, the spell works as a standard 3.5 spell: it's prepared in the morning, and once cast, is inaccessible until re-prepared, and the mana cost serves simply as an exterior resource the spell-casting player must manage for optimum effect.
>>57558969This is glorious. This game must be played. If it works out, we need to know about something so insane being cool/fun. If it's a trainwreck, it sounds like the kind of trainwreck legendary greentext posts are made on.

>>57558969This is beautiful. One can imagine a quest dedicated to the learning this spell
>>57566953what if all level 8 and above spells arelearned with similar quests? That would be fun.

>>57558969I applaud whoever was autistic enough to come up with all this. OP please for the love of Say-Tyr post everything you've got and I promise I'll learn the system and run a roll20 for everyone who's interested
>>57566418At least level 100. We could be looking at Disgaea levels of scaling here.>>57566559Maybe you can use the extra points to buy and level skills, buy spells, buy some sort of feat equivalent, be saved for later, or be cashed in for EXP or dosh.>>57566667The first one was, but that's arguing semantics.
>>57567125>We could be looking at Disgaea levels of scaling here.Sweet lord, this sounds like a crunchfag's dream come true.
Please post all the pdfs. I want to try running this.
I hope ya'll have a roll20 group because I want in.
>>57558969/tg/'s on fire today.
>>57566667>that's like saying final fantasy is vancianFF8 is.
>>57560609Omg Deceit and Charisma are two separate stats... Does that mean I can make a character that is unbelievably convincing, but only when I lie? So every sentence would have to include at least one falsehood, but doing so would allow me to talk people into anything? I...I never knew i wanted this character so badly.
>>57566559Extra base caps, or points can be saved of course.
>>57558737Whaddya mean, isn’t combat the biggest portion. In end for example, besides rolling and describing your actions what major system elements exist outside combat?
>>57567985In dnd* for example.
>>57558969This made my day. Thanks man, I needed that laugh.
>>57567958You're good at deceit; you're able to come up with very reasonable, good lies that don't need any real persuasion in order to convince other people; they seem self evident. Persuasion, on the other hand, implies that something is not as it seems, and that you need to explain to someone that it is, in fact, something else. Having high in both stats lets you create complicated lies and convince others that, despite everything going on saying otherwise, that what you're saying is in fact the case.For example:>LieI'm a meteorologist.>PersuasionThe sky is blue because the sky matches the color of the planet; primarily blue, thanks to the giant oceans. >Persuasive LieThis means in grassy areas, the sky is green.
>>57564838SAY-TYR"S POWER KNOWS NO BOUNDS
>tfw OP never delivered
>tfw OP never delivered the rest
So I guess OP really was just making this shit up for (you)s?Anyway, this is too good to waste. We ought to make our own system with these stats, and a spell list. I gotta get some sleep for work, but I expect /tg/ to get shit done until I have some time to contribute.
>>5755896910/10 GOAT spell
>>57568788>>57568791>>57568817Nobody can post images (or could, for a while?) so I'm not sure delivery was in OP's power.
>>57558969Well I know what im using Wish for next time i get it. Emulating this spell with no survivors
>>57568865He could have at least said something about that. Well, I for one am willing to give him 24h of time from his first post, but even then…
>>57566667FF1, 3, and 8 are. Hell, so are Espers in VI.
Wait, so if Say-Tyr turns me into a goat for his harem, will I be a female goat? Or does he plan on sodomize me?
>>57568397Knowing how austimal this guy has to be, this is probably how it works.Its still dumb as shit though.
>>57569054Say-Tyr does as he pleases.
>>57569054Say-Tyr is obviously pansexual.
>>57569069Including your ass
>>57569054He will fuck whatever hole(s) you present to him, and he will make his own if you offer none.
>>57569080>pansexual.I applaud the pun, good sir, if clever wordplay was what you intended.
I have taken the liberty to convert the spell into 5e DnD.Orb of the Albino Doom Goat9th level ConjurationRange, 120 feetComponents: V,S,M (The horn of a Devil worth at least 10,000 gp)Duration: InstantaniousYou create a breach in barrier between dimensions and momentarily allow Say-Tyr to exert his power in the Prime Realm. Say-Tyr manifests as a Large sized eight-legged goat with white fur. His twelve horns are extremely elaborate and stretch well beyond the back of his body, and are decorated with tattoos and murals. Each of his head cultists since the beginning of time has added one new picture to the horns. A shimmering orb 30 feet in diameter surrounds him.Say-Tyr will not follow your orders and will do as he pleases. Any creature attempting to command him or use any kind of enchantment spell on him will cause him to target that creature. Otherwise he will under nearly all circumstances charge in a line of 150 feet before disappearing. Nothing can stop him except terrain blocking effects that explicitly say they are immune to damage.Any creature caught in the line must make a Strength Saving throw or they take 66d6 magical bludgeoning damage. On a successful save they take half damage. Any creature caught in the orb that surrounds him takes half damage and has advantage on the saving throw.Additionally, Say-Tyr's bleating forces anyone caught in the orb must make a Charisma saving throw. On a success the creature is immune to this effect of this spell for 24 hours. Failure causes the creature to become a goat. The statistics of the creature don't change, just its appearance. This is permanent but can be dispelled via dispel magic, remove curse, or similar. If a target is turned into a goat and reduced to 0 hit-points by the damage of this spell, they are instantly killed (in goat form) and their soul is claimed by the Abyss to become one of Say-Tyr's harem. Any creature that cannot hear the bleating is immune to this effect.
>>57558969>Say-Tyr will not follow your orders and will do as he pleases. Attempting to command him or use any kind of conjuration-controlling spell will cause him to target you.Man I've been on here for too long because as soon as I read that my first thought was monster hentai
>>57569178>9th level conjuration>not 8thyou had one job anon
I will never listen to people that say my ideas are shit again. I won’t lose my way.
>>57561767Twelve horns, each longer than a semi-truck. How long do you think time is?
>>57559107Imagine getting a feat or something that let you use it stealthily.
>>57569415Longer than a semi-truck by several orders of magnitude.
>>57568817Agreed. Use some of the refinements to fix the system.Best case scenario OP comes back and posts more stuff for us to tweak, or /tg/ finally gets something done since forever
When images come back, someone post the screencap of the spell, I NEED this for any future campaigns.
>>57561767Here's a more ominous proposition; what if his followers aren't many? What if, throughout time, he's only had a handful of high-priests? What if his legions consist of elves, who live great deals of time and need no replacement? What if his followings have often been killed by Sat-Tyr himself following castings of Orb of the Albino Doomgoat, only to be rebuilt by rich nobles discovering the cultist remnants?
>>57565080>since the begining of timeIt's a fairly new campaign setting.
>>57569449Let's back-of-an-envelope math this. >Say-Tyr has twelve horns that are longer than semi trucks, and his high priests are permitted to add decoration to them.>A meaningful decoration could be about the size of the palm of my hand>The palm of my hand is about 4 inches by 4 inches>I could fit my hands on either side of a ram's horn, but Say'tyr is way bigger so I could probably get handspans on the top and bottom as well.>A semi truck maxes out at, like, 50'>There are three palms in a foot>Each horn therefore has 150 palms of length, over four faces, for 600 palms per horn>There are 12 horns, so Say'tyr can hold around 7200 decorations before he'd have to grow to accept more>"Each of his high priests since the beginning of time has added one new picture to the horns.">You generally have one high priest at a time>The pope is something like a high priest>Since the year 1000 there have been 126 popes/High priests of Catholicism>The average reign of a pope is about eight years. We can use this as a ballpark for the service of High Priests>This means that Say'Tyr's horns, without growth, could accomodate about 58 thousand years of history>Say'tyr's horns could accomodate continued service by high priests from, roughly, the invention of the bow and arrow to now. He could handle the time from the very dawn of the bronze age to now more than ten times over>He could handle high priests turning over every eight years for the entire history of Middle Earth from the creation of Arda to the War of the Ring and still have over 20,000 years of room left.I think he's good.
>>57569581That is incredibly rad. I'm pretty sure I'm going to include Say-Tyr in my next game in some fashion or another. He's too cool not to
>>57569581You're assuming the horns are square prisms, when goat horns are more like a prism of a conic section, which can be better approximated by a triangular prism. A triangular prism should have about 1/2 the volume of a square one, and thus likely about 1/2 the surface area.So more like 29 thousand years. Still quite a long time, though.
>>57569624>nd thus likely about 1/2 the surface area.Significantly more than half. Please learn to do math.
>>57560609Merge them and post the combined file. I wanna run it. I've run FATAL and this looks like even more fun.
>>57569581Also, there's no reason to assume his horns can't grow in the next twenty thousand years.
>>57558728>I don't know what to think.Autism.Other than that there's nothing different about this and the countless other homebrewed systems that are best described as D&D but with way more stuff.
>>57566614Depends. Scrimshaw is basically like carving, right? Tattooing is injecting ink underneath the skinlayer. So neither, technically. As horn doesn't tend to have skin. Unless ofcourse, it does.PRAISE SAY-TYR
>>57558969You know what you must do anon.Become a Horned Priest of Say-Tyr.Echo bleating hymns in his name.Let them all suffer before the great eight-legged beast.
Now I kinda want to make spells like that one. But I don't think im assburgers enough
>>57558728OP this has the potential to be the best thread or series of threads on /tg/ in ages, please post the remaining pdfs and any additional content you might have. Also play the campaign, Say-Tyr cannot abide cowards, the goat charges only forwards!
>>57561791He gets a little bigger with each summoning in order to make room for more markings. That's why he's so huge.
>>57558728>I don't know what to think.Autism.Other than that though, there's no real difference between what you're describing and the countless other homebrewed systems that are best described as D&D but with way more stuff simply for the sake of having loads of stuff.
>>57568397>>Persuasion>The sky is blue because the sky matches the color of the planet; primarily blue, thanks to the giant oceans.But that's a lie. You're using a lie to represent something that by all logic should just be something that's true but difficult to explain.
>>57570151Well fuck. I'm wrong, but I didn't lie, I genuinely thought that's what it was. But you grasp the concept; it's difficult to explain, and persuasion is your ability to explain your point of view to convince others of it. Persuasion would also help on things like appeals to emotion or asking loaded questions, where you in the end achieve the same goal of elliciting the answer you want from someone through the power of good word choice.
>>57565330>out of my hands >left to the dice how exactly do you roll your dice?
>>57558728>>57558969Play the damn game.
>>57558969Say-Tyr fucking damnit, I would play the shit out of this game just so I can become His high priest and be allowed to add a new picture on His horns.
>>57558728OP as you can see by the amount of repies to this post and especially >>57558969 this, tell your friend to compile his work into a single pdf and fucking post in for the glory of Say-Tyr. Preferably with the same picture so we will easily find it.
In the name of Say-Tyr, the Twelve-Horned, Lord of the Caprines, the Albino Ram of Doom, He Who Tramples The World, Master of the Endless Goat-Harem, Sire of a Thousand Young and Eater of the Primordial Oats, I bless this thread and everyone in it. May your days be full of fresh straw and plump bitch goats. Blaaahh.
>>57571620In the name of He-Who-Does-As-He-Pleases!Blaaaaaah!
>>57569571>>57558728>>57558728OP, do you see what you have done?You MUST deliver the rest now. Say-Tyr Vult.
Somebody screencap the best parts. Say-Tyr wills it.
Legendary threadOP, ask your DM permission if you must, but we're reaching critical levels of MUST DELIVER
>>57571781I doubt OP is even here anymore
There, for just a moment, /tg/ felt like the good times.
OP COME BACKYOURE BREAKING MY HEARTI NEED THIS GAME IN MY LIFE
>>57571620Praise be, anon. Praise be
This thread reminds me of the 6th episode of Nora to Oujo
Literally one of those spells that's so good it changes the nature of the game.Seriously, if you presented a normal group with the 5E spellbook and slipped that spell in then you'd get at least 50% of the party wanting to be followers of Say-tyr just in the hopes that one day they can learn that spell.Evening glory was a similar god in 3.5.
>>57571620>High Goat-priest begins ritual chanting of the Bleat Hymns, acolytes join in with droning horns>traditional burning of the sweet grasses, barks, and roots>slow butchering of the male wolf, traditional enemy of all goats, that has been fattened on a diet of oats and milk>now the goat bitches will safely give birth to many healthy young rams
>>57569054Have you ever met a goatThey'll fuck anything
I have a sudden urge to fuck goats
>>57569581Guys, it's very worth noting that the horns are specifically noted to be "extremely elaborate". Seeing is clearly not in reference to the decorations, since mention of the decorations is appended on to the description of the horns as a seperate factor regarding them.Which means the horns are not straight lines, likely twisting and curving back on themselves Say'Tyr-knows however many times. Say'Tyr's horns almost certainly have FAR more space than 58,000 years' worth of High Priest doodles.
>>57569581>>57572629For a second reference of spiraling horns, look at the Markhor goat. If Say-Tyr is the size of a semi-truck than his horns would be able to have very tight spiraling horns while still allowing the high priests to decorate the surface of them.
Now we have to asspull the rest of the following of Sat-Tyr
I love it how most of the ppl still in this thread are just autistically screaming blaaagh! while in the background a group of anons has a serious discussion about realism of decorating Say-Tyr's horns.
>>57573264>implying they're separate
>come into thread expecting shit GM stories>instead get E.W.E. DIVINE CAPRIMANCYI love this board so much
So is Say-Tyr's mortal enemy the god of Trolls?
>>57571620Hallowed be thy name, noble and ever gracious Sire of a Thousand Young!Blaaaahh!
>>57573311>E.W.E. DIVINE CAPRIMANCYfuck anon you're breaking my legs over here
>>57573354Maybe some sort of wolf god? as >>57572372pointed out they are the goats natural predator.
>>57573472>>57573311E.Y.E mentioned, now where the fuck is the server?
>>57573506>>57573354You guys are aware that Sey-Tyr is more Satan/Baphomet (Element: Dark, Doomgoat) than a animalistic goat god?
>>57573586>implying goats aren't naturally Satainic
>>57573586And who is Satan's mortal enemy?
SAY-TYR is fucking legendary
Trying to convince my DM to sneak in a faun cult of Say-Tyr in the next city we visit. Wish me luck
>>57569178>66d6Nice touch, but the amount of time required to resolve damage for a reasonable number of foes (enough to warrant summing Say-tyr) is extremely long. Are there other than taking the average or applying one damage roll to all enemies?
Is OP dead or just asleep?
>>57574038I imagine you could use a computer, like the random website, and put in the absolute low and absolute high then see where the damage falls.
>>57574070he's part of the harem now
>>57574038You don't apply one roll to everyone in an AoE?
>>57574038I thought 5e had you roll your damage once anyway. Besides, at 66d6, the bell curve is so high you may as well just take the average unless (for some reason) you feel the need to empower the spell or something
>>57573341Holy shit, I haven't seen this guy in like nine years.
>>57558728Can you upload the list? I'm trying homebrew for the first time, I'd like to study other ideas
>>57574423Dude the new followers of Say-Tyr (read:anons in this thread) have been begging for four fifths of the thread.
>>57566418I feel like the GM, (or more likely op looking for (you's) ) is trying to make a system around pic related. I love Overlord and I would fucking love to play a legit game where you go to 100 and SPLAT lowly lvl 30s with our Lord and savior Say-Tyr
>>57574491But has OP delivered?
>>57574637No OP is clearly a servant of Kn'eck-Beh-Eard, evil god of all trolls and mortal enemy of mighty Say-Tyr. All hail Say-Tyr!
>>57571620Thou spiritual goat, Say-Tyr, thou eye, thou lust!Bleat aloud! Bleat aloud!Whirl the oats, oh my father, oh Say-Tyr, oh sun!BLAHHHHHH!!!
>>57572642What a cutie!
>>57573586He is just misunderstood.Say-Tyrism is religion of peace, understanding and doing as he pleases.Blaaaahh!
>>57574861Heritic! Say-Tyr is a wrathful god. Peace and understanding is for sheep!
>>57574930So are we going to split into orthodox and reformed Say-Tyrists?
>>57574930False. Say-Tyr is a wrathful god against his enemies, for the buck must protect the kids and does from the predators of the wild. Say-Tyr protects his own and is understanding to his own, like any good father. However, woe to any that harms his does or kids, for they will see the true wrath of He Who Tramples The World.
>>57574963Hells yes. It's not a proper religion until you've had a bloody scism over an esoteric point of doctrin
>>57575024Works for me. Religious conflict just gives me more room to slip my cult in among the satyrs of the priesthood.
>>57575024spoilers It's not a proper religion anyway
>>57568817So this was true?
>>57575068Oh mighty Say-Try smite this unbeliever.BLAAAH!
>>57573677>Heresy>Here sy>Here say>Here is Say
We should really expand the lore if no more oc is posted. Hierarchy, mythology, rituals, scims,... We need more from the Horned Holyness
>>57575068Time to get BLAAAHMED heretic.
>>57575141I imagine he'd be an old god, maybe of fertility, farmers, so on, who is so popular and fundamental to civilization that he just does not give a fuck about looking for worshipers anymore.Think an aging rockstar that's living entirely off royalties from creating an entire new genre with a few hardcore songs back in the day and now basically living off cocaine and groupie pussy.
>>57575024Needs to be more pointless though. Like whether or not Say-Tyrs horns are straight or curved. Like anyone would be retarded enough to believe they're straight but you know
OP, we need more. Where are you?
>>57575068>And in the night the ewes came with sliver tongues and serpent eyes, and tried they did to denounce the Horned One's greatness to his followers.>"Thou are listless followers of the musky one, heed my cries followers of Say-Tyr and bow before the Eweyah! For Eweyah is the greatest!">However, the strength of the followers of He Who Tramples The World was strong and unbroken, for they knew the truth>The high priest of Say-Tyr looked at the Ewe and said the sacred words "No way, fag" before him and the others bleated to their lord.>Thus, the ewes left. Distraught and broken for they knew they lost.
>>57575233>>57575233>like anyone would be retarded enough to believe they're straight but you knowIf you believe that Almighty Say-Tyr ONLY has curved horns you are clearly mistaken. Say-Tyr clearly has horns that are both curved and straight for he can manifest them however he pleases.
>>57575352That sounds like holy war to me a CAPRINUS VULT
>>57575305>Finland>Christmas goatFinns are based nation.
>>57575352>CompromisersYou are somehow worse than the straights. Can't wait til the day of the BLAAAAGH and you're all devoured forever by Say-Tyrs endless stomach
So my next project down the pipe is finishing pic related, a sort-of joke setting made from /tg/ and /k/ crossover and at that time ridicoulus idea of what if Trump becomse president.As you can see, one of the factions is called "Horde of the Wolf", a bunch of super human animal whorshippers who turn their enemies into savage beastmen soldiers. I would like to replace them with Say-Tyr and his whorshippers, as there is quite some design space for evil she-goat harem army fighting against crazed survivalist and over-the-top knights.On the other hand, since we established wolf and goat to be bitter enemies, maybe I should place Say-Tyr further West and have that be the reason the horde is pushing so aggressively for the setting? I'd be open for any ideas, for the glory of Say-Tyr.>>57575305>still no mention that Christ-child is a hot blonde chickShit map still shit
>>57575413The fins are the only ones to recognize his bleating glory.>>57575404Ha! I'd like to see you try, I have the advantage of both curved and straight horns! I have all of your strengths and none of your weaknesses Say-Tyr shal recognize my glory and I shall ascend while you will be obliterated, not even fit to become part of his magnificent harem.
>>57575305>Christmas ladsThe absolute madmen.
>>57575432Try all you want, but I know that I have his true meaning in his heart, for he has reviled his truest from to me and my brothers! We know his glory in the fullest! We see past the weak divides of horn shape and into the purity of his works. You shall be reduced to nothing more than bleating servitors to sing his praise as we cleanse the land of heretics and apostates!
I'm giving /tg/ three days before you Plebbitors drive this amusing anecdote into the ground as a horribly forced meme.I'm really not looking forward to the next week of "FOR SAY-TYR XD" threads.
>>57575444reminds me of xanth
>>57575020FOOL!Say-Tyr does as he pleases! We owe him our thanks for deeming us fit to live each day, as he spares us from his divine horns!
>>57575494And once the religion of Say-Tyr falls from grace and its followers hunted, all who have taken His image upon themselves will flock to whoever will accept them.This sounds like a win for me.
>>57575494> The other posters hated Anon, for he spoke The Truth
>>57575494I'm just waiting for OP to get back and tell everyone that Say-Tyr is -in fact- low-tier as gods go in this game.
>>57575656But he didn't say that New Vegas was the best Fallout game.
>>57575671It would be fucking great
>>57575591By his holy horns, you don't understand. He does what he pleases, I will not argue with that. However, he protects us from the horror that lie await in the darkness, for he is the buck of this flock and he protects his kids and does as any good buck does. You see him as a wrathful god that is fickle, and yet he is not. His horns impale his enemies, but he does not impale or trample us, his children. We give him thanks and sacrifice to him for protecting us, not because we're scared of him. Your tongue sounds like that of an ewe. Go back to worshiping Eweyah heathen.
>>57575352>>57575233That is way too easy to disprove. Just cast the Orb of the Albino Doomgoat, or ask your current high priest.
>>57558728>>57558969>>57560609OP get back here, I crave for more!
>>57575721I bet you think he has straight horns.
>>57575494>PlebbitorsTrying a bit too hard to fit in. Next time either have fun or go to >>>/gif/ and jerk off to something. Ok, maybe >>>/aco/ or >>>/d/ would be better, since /gif/ has really gone down hill as of lately.
>>57575688Mate, summoning him runs the risk of turning into a goat to be rammed in his pansexual harem in the Bovidae Dimension should you hear his dread bleat.Let's not pretend that Say-Tyr is magnanimous.
>>57575494>t. butthurt cow
>>57575902That's an insult to cattle, take it back!
>>57575872If you're going to be a worshipper of Say-Tyr who casts 8th level spells, I think that becoming part of his pansexual goat harem is actually not a bad ending in your book.
>>57558969So when is this game being published i'd throw 10 bucks at it
>>57575872First summoning him doesn't make you get caught into the orb, only less if you're a idiot and try to command him. Also, his bleating only turns to people in the orb (not outside) into goats. If you're intelligent, you won't get sucked into the orb and you won't either be impaled/trampled/ turn into a goat for breeding.
>>57575444Goats like mountains. Wherever Say-Tyr's cult is should include a lot of hilly or mountainous terrain. Likely they dye normal goats in bright colorful patterns and possibly ride them into battle.
Thread theme https://youtu.be/7ejsM0VF-Os
>>57575948What if you're halfway out of the orb?
Guts killed your god in Albion arc, heathens.
>>57576324Some of you is still inside of the orb -> you're a goat now
>>57576324That's how the holy ones are born, anon.
>>57576361Eeeeexcellent. I see a fruitful alliance between the gods in the future.
>>57576324Depends on the system if you're able to be between five foot intervals. In real terms I imagine that the bleating reverberates within your soul, thus transforming you into the goat that always resided within. Just as if you were fully within the circle.In regards to the picture, what is Say-Tyr's stance on Satyrs? Are they the chosen few humans who have laid with an avatar of Say-Tyr? Or are they twisted humans who seek to warp their bodies in a perverse mockery of He Who Tramples the World?
>>57576385Depends on whether satyrs exist in the setting.One can make them a client race of him.
>>57576385Both, I guess
>>57576324Is a functioning ear in the orb? Because you get goated by hearing Say'Tyr's bleating.I know OP hasn't come back to deliver the rest of the system, but I figure we need at least one Say'Tyr/Homebrew thread to give him a chance to return after this one falls to page 10.
>>57576463Have faith anon the profit will return and bless us with knowledge of his ridiculous homebrew system
>>57576684Pretty sure OP made it up desu.
OP is a faggot and shall never deliver. they're only teasing like a mofo
guys guys guys, Say-Tyr is the consort of Shub-Niggurath. Hear me out on this.>Shub-Niggurath = The Black Goat of the Woods with a Thousand Young>Say-Tyr = the Albino Doomgoat>Shub-Niggurath is the mother, Say-Tyr has a goat harem in the Bovidae Dimension>the father of those Thousand Young could conceivably be Say-Tyr. it could be argued that Say-Tyr = Yog-Sothoth, given Yog's impregnation of Shub, but Yog is on record as sleeping around a bit, so it is just as conceivable that Shub is Say-Tyr's main bitch, and Yog was just a one off fling. additionally Yog is described as a conglomeration of glowing spheres, which is hardly goat-like.
>>57576918I thought about it but... Arenyou blaspheming about our great lord? Seems heretic to meeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
>>57576918>Implying it isn't the other way around and Shub-Niggurath isn't part of the haremGreat God Pan came first anon.
>>57577254i thought about that too, maybe Say-Tyr IS Pan
>>57577124Yeah sure but I'm from /k/ and Samuel Colt says it's cool
>>57577254>implying shub niggurath isn't the first wife?
