Girl with Greatsword is the best possible look for a pc. Feel free to try to prove me wrong with your own pictures
I've seen this thread like three times now and it's lame. I'm bored with it. So let's have a better thread and make your greatsword girl in GURPS.She's starting withST 12 (The minimum for the sword, massively jacked for a realistic woman.)DX 11 (DX over 10 for a fighter is preferable)IQ 10 (We could go to 9 maybe.)HT 12 (Gotta be in shape.This leaves her base speed at 5.75, and it's not strictly worth the 5pts to bump it to 6 by itself, so we should buy her HT to 13 to get our money's worth. We're building her on 100pts, we've got 30 left, but we'll put our disad cap at 50.You want to think about what sort of vices and problems she has while I fuss with skills?
as i'm SURE you know, a very similar thread just happened>>82270921
>>82293972I dunno, cool i guess but i'm a PlayStation man personally
>>82294141Alright well, since OP just wants pictures of swordswomen instead of doing anything to do with actual games, as is common, I'll pick her disads myself, and she's getting a VD because op is a faggot.It's okay, she's status 1 minorest of minor nobility, so I'm sure it's subject of lots of gossip amongst the peasantry.
>>82294197Yeah it hit image limit
>>82293972Does she know any Master-strikes though?
I absolutely disagree. Realistically no boobplate girls are shit taste. Here's a pic of one. Dont you feel disgust? I sure do.
And here we go. You'll have to get a backpack and traveling gear your damned self, but here's her combat load. She has DR10 forearm vambraces, accounting for a house rule of "If you have an advanced unarmed skill, the -3 penalty range for parrying a weapon becomes "you choose where the enemy hits on your armor," instead of "The enemy hits but can choose your hand."That fills in just a little of the defensive hole potentially left by having no shield and only a bigass sword to parry with. But as we've kept her armor extremely light, Dodge 10 is pretty damned good as a fallback. I'm making the assumption that wielding the sword in a mordhau adds +2 damage and converts it to crushing, just so it does anything the fuck at all. The rules have never been clear on fill-form changes except to say you can. When she gets some points, probably good to look into armed grapple, and maybe some skills beyond those of a spoiled rich girl who's done nothing with her life except be trained in the sword and have inadvisable trysts.
>>82294141She smokes and drinks. She hates the Swiss.
>>82295517Had a free quirk, minor alcohol addiction added. Illegal 6th quirk filling a 1pt hole in her disad allotment added for minor addiction to tobacco. "Nosy" replaced with "Chauvinism (Towards the swiss.)"Could run a combat if anyone cares. We don't do that stuff around here anymore and it blows. I might be gone for a bit, but for when I return, I'll take votes on what she should be fighting. (But I've got vikings and goblins, for things vaguely within her viable threat range.) Could slap stuff together though.
>>82295620have her fight velociraptors.
>>82295640Rad, I've got stats for those. I'll put it together when I get back.
>>82293972You're a man of culture as well it seems
>82293972Personally, I think a girl with a blunt instrument to beat me to death with is aesthetically superior to the greatsword.
>>82295808Heavier chest armor than greatsword girl, but similar limb protection, an unprotected head and probably slower. One eye occluded and no weapon but an oversized mace: doubt she'd come out ahead.
>-5 STR>-3 CON>-4 WIS>-5 INTYou may now play a female character.
>>82293972Someone with that many scars can't be that great of a fighter.
>>82295808Patrician taste, anon.>>82295855What is it about 'aesthetics' that eludes you?>>82295969Oh, the sexless spergs are out in full force.
>>82296007>sorry eunuch known as armortranny is also a bumpfagWhat a shocker
>>82296007It’s only realistic
>>82295987Why are their legs so scarred?
>>82296044Sir, who gave you the rights to such power level?
>>82295045Based man. Wish you didn't go with the vd though
>>82296058Because they refuse to wear pants.
>>82296043I guess it was only a matter of time before the retards who cry about armortranny would start merging with the retards who cry about bumpfag into one big ball of stupid
>>82296110I don’t understand why you people deny objective truths. Men are smarter and stronger than women. Full stop.
>>82293972I wholeheartedly agree. Pants are not required.
>>82296044>>82296143Yes, realismfags are too retarded to play tabletop games
>>82296143Because it doesn't apply to any game, so it's not worth ever actually talking about it. In the world of fantasy, it is irrelevant due to gods and magic existing, and in scifi you can negate any natural penalties with a slew of cybernetics and generations of soft eugenics. It's only relevant if your a sperg, or just don't want your players being women for some asinine reason.
>>82296142both bumpfag and armourtranny are exceedingly annoying characters though
>>82296200Neither of them really exist
>>82296142>>82296159Please refrain from posting any of your ugly pics in the thread. I don't ask you to stay silent knowing that you're mentally unwell and can't control your impulses.
>>82296224Like Jim Profit and ND didn't exist too.
>>82296228No one cares what you think.
>>82296224You say that, but they have posting styles that are readily identifiable. Why is so hard to for you to accept that a single autist is bumping worldbuilding threads at page 10?Or than one random idiot gets so upset at casual misogyny that he has to respond with middle-school level insults?
>>82294220>Doesn't even have a good buttGross.She could at least do some stairs.
>>82296246Both of those users were namefags>>82296284Is it really too hard for you to accept that maybe there are many anons like worldbuilding threads and hate /pol/ and /r9k/ retardation?
>>82296325No, I'll believe that. Nobody likes /pol/, not even /pol/. Many people like worldbuilding, sure. But again: Why do you think it isn't just a really dedicated autist who's bumping worldbuilding threads at page 10 by asking inane questions?
>>82296394Y-you know you're responding to the actual armortranny, right anon?It's as real and as predictable as bumpfag.
>>82296394I personally think it's a small group of /wbg/ autists not staying in the containment thread.
>>82295983Those are pretty clearly bar-brawl injuries except for the one over her eye, which is from an academic dueling society.
>>82296448maybe he'll have some introspection after we're done?>>82296459I suppose it's a possibility.
Would you a stinky Landsknecht?
>>82296394Because unless you are arguing that someone just likes seeing worldbuilding threads /tg/ I can't see any overall goal. What is common with all these worldbuilding threads other than someone bumping the threads? What is the end game?
>>82296506Would throw her into a lake and wash thoroughly. Would call her the stinky lady of the lake if she resisted which she would do most likely.
>>82296586Nope, that's all I'm arguing. I'm not gonna speculate as for the why's.
>>82296586>What is the end game?Boredom, fake human interaction, insanity.
>>82296712I wish I could remember that guy's name, he has some good stuff.
>>82296619>>82296682So if there is no really reasoning or pattern behind the bumping then how do we separate the bumpfag from just someone else bumping the thread?
I would post Adira from Tangled if this shitty fucking useless moderation allowed me to.
>>82296497Can someone who only exists in some faggots head introspect?
>>82296774Bumpfag asks dumb questions like you when the thread has no pulse. Even writing style and tone matches.
>>82296112I asked OP and he didn't want to talk about games, so his waifu has crabs now because he's a fag.If you want it off your copy of the character, by all means. You can probably fuss the CR on her compulsions to make up the five points without adding anything, or upgrade her code of honor to full chivalry. Either will do.I'm back and eating dinner, once I'm down we'll kick this pig. How big of a raptor do you lads want and how many? Feathers or no? I've got stats for man sized Raptors, them little fuckers, and bigass Utahraptors. That last one might be rough though. Was kinda thinking a pair of the regular sized guys. Maybe three if we're feeling especially dangerous.
>>82296815If you die tomorrow /tg/ will become a better place overnight. Not even joking.
>>82296824You think only bumbfag asks dumb questions? Also this thread is has some use as a place to post pics
>>82296774There's definitely a pattern. He bumps worldbuilding and lewd threads with one-line, surface level questions every time they hit page 10. The way he phrases things sticks out a bit due to a pleading tone and a level of politeness not generally seen around here.He often brings up certain cartoons and animes he's watched, generally harem shows and cartoons featuring magic. He often asks how someone would use a system to build something from his cartoons. Check out the Persona thread for some examples.
>>82296871Only bumpfag asks pointless question to fake interest to lure people into supporting a dead thread a little bit longer. So far you mostly repost recent posts which is of little use.
Stop arguing and tell me how many dinosaurs you want to see this bitch fight, fags.
>>82296858Or you can die so there is one less retard going on about some boogeyman
Rolled 3 + 1 (1d20 + 1)>>82296915
>>82296933That's going to blow, but I'll take it. Lemme finish eating and import these lizards into the widget.
>>82296924Armortranny got triggered!
>>82296815sighi thought this looked really cool so i looked up the artist's page to see more cool pixel knights...and it's mostly just this
>>82296902Has anybody ever considered that bumpfag might be a symptom of a larger issue?
>>82296924You're shit, bumptranny. All your posts are shit. All your pics are shit. You're the biggest turd on /tg/.
>>82296902Beside the pics being posted this thread is of little use
>>82296497>introspectionYou're adorable, newfriend!
>>82296942blow why? Too many or too few?
>>82296955Some symptoms are more disruptive than their causes. Like turning the board about traditional games into undead theatre because you're lonely and bored.
>>82296951Some retard cries about trannies.>>82296964You are too stupid to do anything other than cry about boogeymen
>>82296987Too many. They're man-sized killing machines, and they'll probably outflank her, knock her on her face, and break her neck like a fuckin' jaguar, but we'll see. It should be entertaining no matter what.
Bumpfag and Armourtranny aren't the same person. Armourtranny is much more belligerent. I wouldn't mind seeing that in bumpfag, though. It'd be fun.
>>82296966Negative. Cute pics of cute girls always have good use.
>>82296966The point of this thread is to post pics and have waifu wars about which weapons are better though?
>>82297004Ooooh. I thought they were chicken-sized.
>>82297010Seeing that they just live in your head they can be the same person if you want it that way.
>>82297003Said faggot with no taste.
>>82297037Stats put proper velociraptors at SM-1, or "Medium dog-ish"I was actually rolling with deinonychus since that's what most people mean when they say 'velociraptor' half the time. Can switch out if that's to preference.
>>82297056Fuck that guy too.
>>82296850I am OP and honestly I think you added something to the thread. Its meant to be fun and rolling characters on the theme while posting pictures is good. Mean to give her crabs though
You all need to chill.
>>82297069Take your dad's underpants out your mouth before talking about taste.
>>82297092Right, I'm too damn hot for my own good.
>>82297124We don't need to hear about your unhealthy relations with your boomer dad who fucks everything including you maybe?
>>82297089It is, but what's 4chan without just the right amount of spite? Lot of taking it to far though these days. Besides, It wound up driving my other decisions about the character's personality and stuff. Sometimes doing something petty and stupid can be interesting in the long haul like that. And I try, this place will just stay shit if nobody puts in the effort, right? Rolling characters and fighting random shit's a time-honored tradition we've lost too much of. >>82297101Yeah cool. One big dude and three little dudes it is.
>>82297145No one needs to hear from you or your projecting about your dad
>>82295969I get the feeling you've been outsmarted by a few women in your life.
>>82297174It's alright we don't need to hear your pathetic sob story again. You already shared it with us >>82271963
>>82296682Now this is an aesthetic I can get behind.
>>82297184>posts HEMAtier shit
>>82297085>Implying they aren't the same person
>>82297224They can't ALL be the same person.
>>82297220Genuine question, what's wrong with HEMA?
>>82297220>real weapon being actually used>HEMAnigga please
>>82297239>tameshigiri>real weapon being actually usedWhat a moron
>>82297152Yeah worked out for the best I guess
Alright fags it's time. Place your bets.>>82297336You want to give the lass the dignity of a name before she's torn to shreds by prehistoric animals?
>>82297196And like that, the troon has been dispelled. Good work anon, you've found the magic charm.
>>8229734810g on my girl. LETSSSSSS GOOOOOOO
>>82297348maybe we should give her a friend?
>>82297348>>82297488I burn 1 Fate point. One of the raptors remembers her as his friend and runs to her side.
>>82297512can we release a neutral bear?
>>82297522Roll 3d6 with your Release a Bear skill.
Turn 1 is boring. The raptors close the gap, and Anna steps a bit to her right. Turn 2The lead velociraptor performs a pack feint, but Anna doesn't fall for it. (MoS 3 vs 4)2 and 3 circle into her flanks.The deinonychus closes in, but is just clever enough to wait for the little guys to swamp the prey first. Anna thrusts at the feinting lead raptor, but fails to connect. It retreats back a space. Anna steps back and to her right to keep the others in view.Aside: The velociraptors are part of a pack for the purpose of pack-fighting. The deinonychus is not.>>82297488I'm going to assume some bullshit D&D magic arena where they can charm the raptors off her if she goes down and get a cleric in there, as long as she doesn't die on the spot. So maybe next time. I was thinking it'd be cool to have her fight mace girl from >>82295808 since there's some rivalry implied. Then maybe they can become friends and tag team something. I dunno if I have the energy to solo "GURPS waifu fights general," to replace random sword girl artposting threads, but it's starting to have some appeal. >>82297512No probability magic. Ejected from the stands by the guards.>>82297522Three way melees are on thursdays at 3pm
>>82297566Bro, not cool. I paid for that raptor.
>>82297566Friday Fight Nights maybe?Also GO RAPTORS
Greatsword girls are shit taste. This thread is a trash thread. More booba more cooma more boota AWOOGA!
>>82297566Oh shit it's the Clever Girl maneuver.
>>82297632Can somebody dox the child so we can call his mom and tell her to put a leash on him?
>>82297632Error 404 Booba not found
>>82297566Turn 3Raptor 1 menaces again, circling right, but Anna's not buying it. She knows how wolves work, these aren't so different, right?Raptor 2 tries to nip her leg from the right flank. Anna dodges away to the NW. Raptor 3 tries to pounce her from the side but it auto-fails on a 17. It rolls Jumping to remain on its feet and lands in the hex. Anna Grip-masters into a defensive hold and parries it* Catching it on the point of her blade, right in the chest. It rolls for knockdown, unconsciousness, and death from 20 injury. Pass fail pass, so it collapses to the ground off her blade. Deinonychus sees her distracted and rushes in to take her by the neck. She tries to weave aside and fails. The creature gets ahold of her and bites down for half her HP. It could be worse, but her grappling skills let her mitigate some of it. Anna is in dire fucking straights. It's her turn now. She tries to break free. She brings her sword up and uses it for leverage**, succeeding decently and throwing the creature off. End turn 3Sorry for length between posts, I had to double-check some things.*This one's a bit uncertain. Normally if you succesfully parry an unarmed attack with an armed defense, you can roll to damage the target. He technically didn't hit, but under the optional rules for declaration of intent, the parry is rolled first. Also, IMO, if you roll to parry a thing jumping at you that lands right up against you, there's no reason you couldn't hit it? But anyway**Py-34 alternate grappling does away with armed grappling as a thing and just uses weapon skill. Weird, but useful here. Makes sense though.
Does anyone have any warmages with staffs and armor?
>>82298011Character art thread is two pages down
>>82297954She's doing better than I thought she would
>>82298065She's getting munched on
>>82297954Turn 4. Raptor 2 goes for her leg. Anna dodges to the NW to get away from itRaptor 1 tries to pounce on her, but she smacks it down with her vambrace. Large Lad swerves in against the gate into her side and tries to get at her. She grip masters out of defensive to catch it. It rolls a critical hit* and takes a bite out of her right leg. Her leg is ruined by 7 cutting damage and Anna collapses to the ground. Defense is out the window. At massive penalties for laying on the ground in shock, Anna AoA's the raptor. Since it also did so, it can't defend. She lands the blow, but the beast doesn't fall despite a shocking injury.As an animal, now wounded, I have it roll a fright check, but it isn't perturbed. End turn 4*The crit result was 'major wound no matter the damage,' but her legs near off so that does nothing.
>>82298109I forgot the picture like a retard.
>>82298084Her head is still on though
>>82298138super dead now man
>>82297196Yes, you are a retard who thinks anyone you don't like is the same anon>>82297407Seeing that the toons live in your head it was your brain that was dispelled
>>82298109Turn 5Raptor one goes for the throat. Anna Grips back to defensive and, despite her horrible position, intercepts it with her blade. She succeeds on the armed vs unarmed parry damage and cuts its leg the fuck OFF. The little bastard goes sailing over her, and is removed from the fight. As the last member of its pack, Raptor two makes a fright check, fails it, and leaves.Now it's just Anna and the deinonychus. It comes back at her, going for her good leg. It's still suffering from injury shock fromh er last attack, so it AoA's the grab again. Anna tries to use her Judo parry to kick its face away but fails. Grappling contest is rolled. The Raptor gnaws on her leg for seven damage. Another major wound. Anna's HT rolls are holding out and she stays with it somehow. It's her turn. She has to AoA and telegraph the attack to get past her monstrous penalties once again. Luckily the animal is just as keen to AoA and finish things. At C her only option is to grip mastery into an awkward halfsword and poke it with the tip. This still nets her enough damage to force it to make conc, death, and knockdown saves. With a 50% chance to pass each, it of course passes fucking all of them, and remains alive, able, and holding her. Anna passes her consciousness from effort at negative HP.Turn 6Raptor just tries to rip her leg off. It does obscene damage and more or less succeeds. (Would if per-limb damage were tracked, but per-injury dismemberment chance in effect.)Anna is taken below her first death threshold but makes the check. she remains conscious.The raptor rolls to remain conscious from the effort, and fails, collapsing. Epilogue in a moment.
>>82298370See girl with greatsword is the best
>>82298370EpilogueNow that combat time has ended, Anna has two ruined legs and fucking massive bleeding. She passes all bleed checks for the first minute, the second. One leg wound stops bleeding on the third but she loses 3 HP from the other wounds. By now, medics are getting to her, at -17hp, and if they're the magical sort, she'll live. whether they can fix her wrecked legs is another story. The damage to her neck was surprisingly 'light' resulting in only half her HP lost, 1pt shy of major wounds and possible permanent damage.What a fucking upset; I totally expected her to be dead the moment she hit the ground. You usually don't come back from that in this, especially when outnumbered. One of them running helped at least. (And for those curious, this wasn't a cop-out, but how I actually run animals in my campaigns. Morale check at 50% losses. STALKER dog pack rules.) I think I fucked up the rules in a few places, but that's the unfortunate nature of GURPS. Sometimes you also just have to interpret some vague shit for situations where the RAW doesn't make a lot of sense. Just write it down for next time. I really hope this has been fun for you guys. A little taste of the /tg/ I think we all want. So remember, the next time you see some waifu art thread with no mention of games, don't get mad. Just stat someone's best girl in your favorite game and make her fight velociraptors.
>>82298406I guess it's official now.
>>82298370I just realized I forgot she AoA'd the previous turn and couldn't defend against Raptor 1. Fucked the whole thing.Oh well, still a good show.
>>82293972Agreed. Girl with a 2h is the character I make in every game for the first time.
>>82298452that was cool, i knew dinosaurs was a good choice
>>82297617>Friday Fight Nights maybe?I think you're onto something. I'd absolutely do what I can to get some sort of Friday fight club going. I think the board could really use a thread outside of generals where people just show off their favorite game's combat mechanics. It's my sincere belief that this place is so dead because nobody is looking at what other games have to offer, or talking with people outside their department, as it were.I'mma be real though, I'm hard pressed not to do shit like run this fight again in 5e D&D to low-key mock it. I'd behave in a thread for purpose though, honest.>>82298065Same, that shit was wild.>>82298406Forced to concede this now.>>82298686It absolutely was. Thank you(?) for the suggestion. It even gave me an opportunity to get more familiar with these alternate grappling rules.
>>82298452Very fun. I think we can all agree that there's a high level cleric at the arena who can fix her up fully. Thanks for the contribution
Make a waifu wars about a sword and board waifu please
>>82298452I'll take my money now boss.
>>82298940I'm down. That pic?You want to add any input on the character? Because I'm using the GM advice from Kill Puppies for Satan here; you guys can give me details or I'll be mean with them. Gets people motivated, y'know?>>82299018Since odds favored the raptors, the house owes you 20gp. Come on back anytime.Also, as an apology now that she's won, I've adjusted Anna's sheet to replace her VD merely with lecherousness. How much you guys think her prize money should be? For aid, a typical broadsword costs about $600. Her fine greatsword was $3,600
>>82299103Her except she has a helmet. Its an egalitarian Republic and she's been training since childhood. Apart from that surprise me I guess
>>82298452Give her magic legs.
>>82299103Wins some armour imo
>>82299133Yeah we can fly with that. >>82299146That's a distinct possibility. I should really decide the skill level of the local healers and see what they can do first.>>82299156So she has armor on her forearms and chest. The problem is that she is absolutely riding the line of her first encumbrance level. She has room after it for 25lbs more armor, but her move drops from 7 to 9, and dodge drops from 10 to 9. It's kind of a rough call, but I think after that encounter, if she keeps her natural legs, she'll accept the weight just out of paranoia.
>>82299262Move drops from 7 to 5, I'm retarded. And to not make this a completely worthless correction post, I am going to keep all these tokens, GCS files, and foundry exports in this dropbox where you guys can have them if you want. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/25p54bu6p9n4s0o/AADHAabWB0GqY-ttJswheQjda?dl=0
>>82299262Chain under plate would probably work
>>82299262We need some base encounter. Raptors seems a bit intense. Maybe like 2 goblins and an orc for a lvl 1? I've got no idea how GURPS works but can you level up? How do you get stronger?
>>82299294Yeah Chain's lighter, could use it for the upper arms and legs maybe. I'm using this article for all armor, if anyone wants to poke at it. http://noschoolgrognard.blogspot.com/p/better-fantasy-armor.html>>82299323Agreed, nothing amiss with a somewhat more reasonable fight. Or a random encounter table of some sort.Could have them fight PCs from my games for giggles at some point too.And yeah, characters are built on points totals, so instead of XP and levels, you just get more points to spend. I've given her two, but honestly that shit might be worth more like five.
>>82299405Having them crushed by your pc's probably isn't that great but having actual waifu fights with different builds from different pictures would be good. How many points do you get to start?
>>82299445I started these on 100 so far. Could do divisions in the future at more or less. I'm also using things like "Patron bought all my gear," to get around the untenable costs of real combat equipment at low TL. And yeah, I wouldn't have them fight PCs of higher points totals except as a group or something. Group flight versus a tougher opponent could be interesting. Just watching one of them get fucking slaughtered by a high elf mage knight, not so much. And having them fight each other is a given, as soon as there's more than one done.
>>82299497Spear girl vs Greatsword girl sounds fun. Also having a D&D retard like Drizzet rolled up and slaughtered in gurps sounds like a laugh
>>82298452This reminded me of the old Riddle of Steel threads where they would run mock combats in threads for people. Good job, anon.
>>82293972I prefer my girls to be able to shank two guys at once or one guy twice.
>>82299524Works. Art in your post added to the bin. She might need some kinda magic shield amulet or something to work. Could be neat. Maybe something kinda strong but is a forcefield so it doesn't work in the same hex...something to think about. >>82299629Thank you. Those are exactly the sort of threads I was thinking about. I've never had more fun than things like that one anon's "We roll random characters in Atlantasia and try to understand the rules," thread. Be the change you want to see and all that.
>>82299769No one said it had to be fair
>>82299856Oh it probably wouldn't be still. Just mechanically interesting. A magic armor amulet that repels blows from a hex or greater away is powerful; but if someone steps into C inside your field and spear and just starts shanking you over and over, you're fuckin' donezo.
>>82299864Rolling up characters is pretty fun desu. I like the idea of an arena
>>82298940Marcia's idealistic as balls. She's got pacifism towards anyone she thinks is innocent, will basically never break the law, is innocently easy to read, and is naively gullible about people's general goodness.She also has zero tolerance for alcohol or rich food, and is sort of a busybody who gets in other people's business, and may be overly cautious.But hot damn she can fight.Her entire kit is provided by her nation, and it all costs less together than Anna's sword does. Her thin DR 4 platemail basically won't even slow down that Zweihander, but a cutting weapon has to do double the damage to not have the penetrating turn to crushing, so it at least may keep her only bludgeoned into unconsciousness instead of cut apart. And that's character 2. Sorry for the wait.
>>82300589Sounds pretty good. Pretty ideal for a straight arena fight really. That shit about not resisting capture would fuck you over pretty badly. Thought about what to put her up against? Like a basic arena first match encounter?
>>82300631It can, but it's very specifically like "if you're being arrested by lawful police et al." It states you have to be under threat of death to resist (which would include any and all orcs and shit, imo,) and I'd extend it to like "Captured by slavers, etc." As a GM, I tend to read that as "you won't lethally try to resist lawful arrest, or being taken by force to parlay with someone you have reasonable belief won't kill you."Anyway, I can probably do some goblins or somethin'. I've got a buncha stats for a buncha sorts. Some of the first shit I put together for VTT too, with their jank as fuck old token borders.
>>82300689Sounds pretty good. I'd say it seems like she'll crush them but the economy of turn based combat makes it more complicated
>mfw no bawdy, rowdy, landsknecht gf
Alright then lads, bout 2 it is, if anyone is left. Looks like it may be the last one for this thread. I've updated the goblins with a better token. I couldn't stand that old one.The goblins are equipped with cheap, light wooden shields, cheap, ill-maintained hacking swords, and some semblance of leather armor and a crude pot helm. They don't have a lot of HP, but they're average-man-strong and have solid HT. With that in mind, I'll take any suggestions to increase or decrease the number of the little bastards before we continue.
>>82300805Looks pretty fine. She might be fucked if they just grapple her though?
>>82293972>>82297089Greatsword optional but woman in dress uniform is the best possible look for a PC.
>>82293972>>82294197>>82297074Females do not really possess the necessary upper-body strength to carry a Great-sword around all day let alone swing it. One reason they are normally seen carrying wands and staves, which are more suitable for their physical strength. Also playing a female character is a road that leads toward transvestitism. (tourist poaster, sorry)
>>82300877Why yes I do like playing with my manly men action figures. I mean models!
>>82300877If you were not a retarded realismfag you would know that great-swords are not as heavy as they are in games.
>>82300828That's possible, but that would require them to pin her with their shields or drop their weapons, which could be a problem. And they don't know how to USE their shields, either. They're just carrying them as planks of wood to flail between themselves and attacks. They get the +1 to their parry and dodge, but their actual shield skill is a fucking abysmal Attack 6/block 7. >>82300877We all know that. Nobody doesn't know that, it's not a revelation. you're not dropping truth bombs. Hell, the game I'm running here goes out of its way to say "With average scores being 10, women have strength 8." A greatsword requires strength 12 to wield to full effect. Now, conveniently, in a game of pretend, this doesn't matter and I don't care. If you do care, run your own game. Except you're a tourist so you won't. Either lurk and learn something, or go away to where you know what you're talking about.Hell next character maybe I'll make a strength 8 fencer for laughs. Round starts once I've found a drink and queued some music.
>>82300999Should have made her fight the Polish so you could play sabaton
>>82300589What program is this? I'm mostly unfamiliar with gurps, but I'm interested after this thread.
>>82295517three strikes and you're out darling.
>>82300877Nobody gives a shit about your opinion, so why bother sharing it in the first place?
>>82297309>tameshigiriYeah - actually using an actual weapon.Glad you agree.Moron.
>>82301023I can listen to Sabaton whenever I please, thank you.But I'm going with Ensiferum today. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vemcBJwCg5E&list=PL5Ivl91R6MfpHpQv1hyJzlBnnf9RTVpMa>>82301046Gurps Character Sheet and you can acquire it here. https://gurpscharactersheet.com/Infinitely reduces the overhead of making characters. I'm running the actual fight in the likewise excellent and well automated Foundry module, into which you can directly export sheets from GCS.Feel free to ask me anything about the system, or the mechanics of what's happening as we go. This is why I love these kinds of threads, it's always good to learn about a new game, or teach it. Okay, onto the event. Neither Marcia nor goblins have a land speed of fucking 12 like raptors do, so it takes four turns for us to reach this situation.
>>82293972take your pick op
>>82301093Shield bash that gobbo on the left Marcia
>>82301102Greatsword or Flamberge because I'm straight
>>82301093Effective Turn 1Marcia steps a bit more to her left and sets up an AoD Parry. Goblins 1 and 2 close in and AoD Dodge. Goblins 3 and 4 just move closer since they're too far out. End Turn 1>>82301116Oh trust me, we'll get that soon enough. Which reminds me I miscosted her DWA and it should be at -1 for points spent and not -2.
>>82301151>Which reminds me I miscosted her DWA and it should be at -1 for points spent and not -2.What does this mean?Is she just going to slaughter them all?
>>82301151Turn 2Marcia starts by making a 1pt deceptive blow at Goblin 1 with her sword, intending to drive him back. He has AoD'd and retreated for a net +4, but still manages to fuck it up. He flails as he backpedals, flings his shield arm too wide, and Marcia cripples it. The goblin drops his shield, falls on his ass, and is stunned. Marcia uses her step to follow him. Goblin 2 steps in front of her and telegraphs a swing at her face. She blocks it with her shield. Goblin 3 steps into her front-right and AoA's a deceptive at her. Marcia retreat dodges to the NW. Goblin 4 tries to slam into her and knock her back. He misses and ends in her hex, but behind her and facing away. End Turn 2>>82301161I mean, she is but not because of that. DWA is "Dual Weapon Attack." Normally attacking with two weapons is at -4. You may buy this penalty off. So she's only at -1. It's still risky because if she swings her shield she can't block with it until after her next turn.
>>82301236Backstab that little shit
>>82301236Turn 3Marcia turns to shove the goblin away with her shield. He goes one hex but barely makes his DX roll to remain standing. Goblin 1 makes an HT roll to recover and remains stunnedGoblin 2 steps over his friend and tries to Feint Marcia, but she finds this comicalGoblin 3 AoD dodges into her rear right hex.Goblin 4 turns around and tries to swing at her from her side. She mis-times her block and takes the hit to the groin. The goblin rolls a 2 and the strike bounces off her armor. End Turn 3>>82301290I sorely wanted to, but turning enough to use our sword on him meant exposing our back to the others, and we really can't do that. In the choice between a shield bash (Marcia isn't strong enough to do real damage with this) and a shove, which she has a perk adding 2 to, I figured the 50% chance of him falling down was better than the negligible damage that may just bounce off his armor.
>>82301315Slam him into the spikes on the arena
Turn 4Marcia steps to her left and shoves the goblin again. Unfortunately, he retreats away but this position at least keeps our back protected. Goblin 1 wakes up. Goblin 2 steps in and swings. Marcia dodges by sideslipping into Goblin 4's space. Goblin 3 sees an opening and runs in to AoA her side, aiming at her face. Marcia parries it though. Goblin 4's weapons are all reach C, so he drops his shield and goes to grab her shield and try to wrench it from her grip. Marcia accepts the penalty for successive parries and uses her sword to intercept him, but doesn't manage to hurt him in the process. End turn 4>>82301330I am trying my damndest, I want to see those little fuckers stuck to it.Ran out of Ensiferum, we Amon Amarth now. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1WsQEsfZNco
>>82301393Forgot pic again.
>>82301393Turn 5Marcia accepts turning her back on Goblin 4 to run through Goblin 3 since he AoA'd and left his defenses open. She runs her sword into his vital organs* and he collapses in a heap, not out, but stunned. Goblin 1 starts to stand upGoblin 2 tries to beat her shield out of the way for Goblin 4. Marcia again finds this comical and takes no ill effect. Goblin 4 tries to AoA beat her shield out of the way for himself. He actually succeeds, and Marcia's shield use is penalized by -4 until her turn after next. Goblin 3 screams a lot.End turn 5*The -10 assessed to his HT check in this image is in error. It should be -5. As a result, he is down and screaming instead of knocked unconscious.
>>82301459Turn 6Marcia turns away from the downed Goblin to stick 4. The attack lands the same, he fails knockdown by 7, and is shocked unconscious. Goblin 1 finishes standing up.Goblin 2 steps around atop goblin 3 and comes after Marcia with a telegraphed blow to her weapon arm. He misses, and she expends her first parry against the miss.Goblin 3 stops screaming and gets his bearings.Goblin 4 is done.End turn 6
>>82301484Did you expect it to be so one sided?
>>82301484Turn 7Marcia turns and shoves Goblin 2 with her shield. She rolls a critical hit and his defense is invalid. Critical result 6: Maximum damage automatically rolled. Shove at +2 for shield DB, shove at +2 for Shoves and Tackles perk. Max damage is 5 so total is 9, doubled to 18 for shove. The goblin is St 9, so we subtract 2 to find his knockback threshold. of 7. He goes back two hexes into the wall. Due to GURPS collision damage being based on the target's HP as a function of mass, and a garbage damage roll, he takes one damage to his left arm as the light little guy bounces off the spikes. Fucking. Lame. Goblin 1 turns and tries to slam her into the wall bodily. He misses as she sidesteps and slams into the wall facefirst. Also taking 1 damage to the leg. Goblin 2 is in her hex now. I have him make a will roll to continue fighting and he just fails it. Goblin 3 tries to crawl away bleeding to death. End Turn 7Turn 8Marcia's a merciful lass, and steps away from the fight to let the little cretins surrender.The establishment doesn't want to go through the business of replacing fodder and lets them. >>82301527Yes. Goblins are trash. All they have is numbers, and they can't leverage them well against a fighter with defenses as high and numerous as sword and board girl. Average SLs of 12 vs 16 as well.They may have dealt better with Anna actually because she only has one particularly high defense. She had a parry of 13 and a dodge of 10. (and a secondary 12 unarmed parry through liberal application house rules.) Marcia has Parry 14, block 15, and dodge 10 as well. Anna's advantage would have been BIG SWORD though. If those goblins tried to parry that thing their cheap cleavers would probably just snap in half, if their shields got in the way they'd probably just break, and 2d+4 cut would just erase them from fucking existence when it finally connected.
>>82301576>>82301527To continue my thoughts;I think every fight against a hoard will go like this, with the single fighter back up against the wall and playing footwork games to deny their back. If people get behind you, they're likely to, being unopposed, just take the +8 from a telegraphic AoA and smash you in the head or neck. The Goblins are too weak to penetrate Marcia's helmet, but they may notice her cheap plate is thinner in the back as well. (Only DR 2 on the rear torso and rear legs)They may not be perceptive enough for that though, and I'd probably require a Perception test of some sort to actually analyze enemy armor. The raptors were more effective both because Anna isn't the best choice to confront multiple threats; and because they were dodgy bastards with biting and grappling SLs of 15. The big one was also much stronger than the goblins, and capable of doing significantly more damage, ontop of Anna having fuck all armor in most places in keeping with her art.
>>82301576>he takes one damage to his left arm as the light little guy bounces off the spikes.shattered>Yes. Goblins are trash.Can you think of a better base encounter for a 100 point character? Wolves maybe? Are orcs too tough?>>82301592Yeah a swarm of raptors is a bit heavy though. Anna got out of that by grace alone and would have been a cripple for life if there was no magic healing
>>82301603In my usual campaign, magical healing is drastically limited in scope. All that got used was two spells to sterilize the environment and anesthetize the patient. Then a touch of innate telekinesis, roll by one of my player's foxgirl surgeon homunculus, since I was telling her about this and she was bored.Swarm of raptors is a bit heavy, agree. >Are orcs too tough?Depends entirely on their skill level and stuff. There's not really bespoke statblocks, though some guy made a "D&D to GURPS" conversion for some monsters that I drag stuff out of as a starting point. And it's hard to say what's a good base encounter for 100pts because the...points don't mean much? Everyone uses different build assumptions, and these characters barely have any noncombat skills or the like. One of the PC's I play on sundays is 220pts (Not counting unspent ones,) and her SL's in most things are only a little better.A lot of her points are in other skills and intangible stuff like just being really fit. Her edge mostly comes from being fucking jacked in comparison to these ladies and having an unreliable touch of spear magic. We agreed for that game that skill levels in the range of 16-18 were reasonable at 200-300pts. Some of the writers of the game think that if you don't have skill levels of 24+ by 250pts, you're doing something wrong. Balance can be rough. A lot of the time it's just putting a situation in front of the players and going "Well, I don't know, deal with it." The game's way less concerned with CR stuff than D&D. I may not be able to make any truly balanced encounters, but I can probably just start building a stable of monsters and generic fighters and rolling on it, and correcting shit that's too much or too little in practice. I'm sure I can find a good basis to start from in one of these three dozen fucking 3.5 D&D splats.
>>82301709idk I somewhat clearly don't actually play table top. Seems a bit full on in my area. I've heard there are some meetings at pubs and whatnot that might be ok though. All I have is my recent BG3 character really. He's a re-roll of a Greatsword girl I had. She was a bit elfy and didn't really have the strength I wanted so I re-rolled a human and also wanted to romance Shadowheart in a non lesbian wayIts very early in the game
>>82301756Sorry man, the only RPGs I usually play with computers are sandbox shit like Kenshi. I don't have a damned clue.
>>82302061Its just d&d 5e basically. Loosely based on it anyway I guess. I've finished the EA a couple of times actually
>>82302075Ah yeah, I mean I've heard of it, but I rather despise 5e combat, and that's all it's got going for it. That and that they put in a million billion skill checks everywhere to try and make it 'authentic' instead of actually designing a dialogue system for a videogame. Hard pass, you have fun though. Your resident GURPSfag suggests Geneforge, Kenshi, and the original Xcom.Actually speaking of 5e, that gives me an idea...
I wasn't going to do it but I'm gonna do it.Anna fight 2.0, now in 5e D&D because I hate this game and myself. I've constructed her as a Human fighter/3This seemed roughly analogous, though some GURPS fansites for dungeon fantasy suggest every level is about 50pts, so she should be 2. However, you don't even get to be your class until 3 if you're not a fucking mage in this game, so she's level 3.Let's dig up some dinosaur stats in the SRD.
>>82302275Those are pretty good stats. If she's a battle master give her parry and fearful blow probably
>>82302291Two reasons.1. Sheer self loathing2. I'm genuinely curious. I did this exact fight once in GURPS. I want to see the actual side-by-side comparison of how these games play, so I have something like an empirical example to point at and justify my disdain. >>82302321You know, Battlemaster seems like you may actually be allowed to play a game, so sure. Let's tweak her a little. Removed her champion shit.Added Parry, Fearful Blow, and Riposte.Though part of me wanted to demonstrate just how fucking boring a level 3 champion is, but I'm going to be nice. And for the record, this isn't meant to try and convince anyone to stop playing one game or the other. Just sorta to have some fun and demonstrate why I don't like it personally. I'd rather demonstrate a bunch of games to the best of my ability and let people make their own conclusions. I'm going to talk shit, but I intend to not play this out with any bias.I did have to sully my map with squares though.Dinosaurs grabbed from random google searches of SRDs with no accounting for CR or appropriateness, same as for GURPS.https://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/Velociraptor_(5e_Creature)https://www.5esrd.com/database/creature/dinosaur-deinonychus/
>>82302369A lvl 3 is going to get crushed man. But yeah depending if she hits a riposte she might one shot one of them. Depends what the challenge rating or whatever is I guess. Like you saw I'm playing a lvl 3 battlemaster atm and there's no way I'd like to mix it with a velociraptor
>>82302369>https://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/Velociraptor_(5e_Creature)>pack tactics>pouncethis is going to be a slaughter
>>82302321Is fearful blow in another book? I got a PHB famalam. She's got Menacing attack instead. Also I just used the array because I didn't roll for stats in the other game. Or any game.>>82302405Yeah probably. I didn't think it fair to go find more 'level appropriate enemies when I went into the GURPS example with whatever google told me were dinosaurs just expecting her to get ripped the fuck to shreds.Okay, Turn 1The dinosaurs have init and move in cautiously enough to maybe get their pounce. Anna runs down to raptor 3 in the bottom and fucking whomps on him, since diagonals aren't real in the base rules I guess.Rolls raw over AC, hits for 12. Raptor 12 2/14hpEnd turn 1Except we are at image limit. Maybe I should just make a fight club thread now?
>>82302501Yeah menacing attack is probably what its actually called. Basically just a way to cc someone as a fighter>>82302501I can just op another thread if you want. Waifu's and the waifu wars?
>>82302519Nah, I'll OP it. I kinda want to explain what the hell this is myself. Back in a mo.
>>82302531ok. I was just going to say Waifu wars thread "You can come up with builds and then test them in the arena." Then you get picture dumping as well as arena in one thread
