>Got any plot hooks or ideas I could use?
The king has organized a grand tourney in order to introduce his son to his vassals as their next liege, considering he's planning to retire in a few years. The tourney would be a safe way for the crown prince to earn the respect of his future vassals by proving that he's just as good a warrior as his father was in his prime. The Local Lord (ugh), who will be your BBEG (UGH!) for tonight, resents the crown prince and wants him dead, sending the kingdom into chaos with a king who's about to retire and no clear heir. Also the unknown challenger who's surprisingly good is also a woman in disguise for some reason. No idea what her relevance is, maybe she wants to best the crown prince and ask his hand in marriage as her reward or something. Basically the crown prince is a Gigachad: men want to be him, women want to be with him and virgin Local Lords (UGHs!) resent him.

I guess if you want to avoid an assassination plotline, maybe the Local Lord (UUUUUUUUGH!!!!) simply wants to discredit the crown prince by ensuring he gets his ass whooped (if necessary through unfair means) and humiliates himself in front of his future vassals, maybe even to the point where they won't accept him as their future liege because they fear his incompetence will harm the realm.

woild be a good idea to lay out goals and whats going to happen. the setting is a vehicle, not a destination. Maybe they are nobodied (in this region at least) and they are trying to get the attention of one of the high nobles or king. they try to compete in some of the tournement events so as to get a private audience with them for some reason (along with prize money too, of course). and with an intrigue angle you could easily go on a whodunit? given them a fewstarter clues, like an informalent left a note in nobles tent, or under a specific rock, and using both social skills and sharp whit one interaction or puzzle leads to another. there could be multiple paths for different playswhichthey can embark across, weving in the events, the social aspects in between (romurs about participants), and highlight all the modes of interaction. the feasts might be a good oprotunity to see everyone, maybe the king declairs a suprise contest in an odd skill, like stealing something from him master spy, music, cooking, textile fashion, religious knoledge and retoric, fighting in many mundane and byzare ways, and between each event the party can reconvene and put together what they found, all the way to the end of the multi day turny where they have to act on their combined intel for something (indicting a noble, uncovering a plot, impressing the king, finding someone or something, etc)

/tg/ I've been thinking about trapping my players in a groundhog day puzzle. But I'm not sure how I should go about laying the clues for how to solve it.
The general idea I have is that once the time loop is activated, you need to find a certain person in the village and have them hold a certain object in a certain location. I figure that if this time loop event is an accident I could have them stumble into a wizard's study and find notes on experiments relating to parts of the key, but that seems kinda too easy. But if the time loop is a malicious trap targeting the party specifically, it wouldn't make sense for the enemy to leave any evidence behind.
Advice would be appreciated.

Quoted By: >>76264573

After defeating the Red Dragon (or rather, its surrender at 10% remaining hit points) the dragon polymorphed into her incredibly attractive half-elf form. The flame-obsessed sorceress in the party immediately asked the dragon to join them. The dragon agreed, assuming she'd be treated like a vassal, plotting to slaughter the party once she had recovered her strength. Instead the sorceress explained to the dragon that she wanted to overthrow the government of her native land and set herself up as Empress - and she wanted the dragon to rule at her side as an equal. The campaign ended with the two of them married and the co-rulers of a small country - with the other PCs also gaining positions of high station and power across the land.

Mechanically, I dealt with the dragon by making her an NPC party member. I let all my groups know that they can have up to one NPC assist them during battle and I make sure to have several interesting and competent NPCs show up during the adventure. I let them know that I'd be somewhat nerfing the dragon's stats, and that since it wasn't in its lair anymore and didn't have Legendary Actions or Legendary Resistance.

Story-wise, I immediately realized that my player had fallen HARD for the villain and I decided that I cared more about making my players happy than I did following my notes. I ended up having a lot a fun RPing as a malevolent dragon who kept trying to eat people and slept on a literal bed of money.

>> No.76264573

I mean, sometimes you establish from the start that you're planning heroic adventures, and somehow down the line the party is a soulless lich who sold his soul to a lesser demon, a giant tarantula, a half-dragon abomination who was made by stealing half the soul of one the greatest ally the kingdom had, and a prophet of a spider god of the depths, storming the palace with an army of demons at their back, and you're left not quite knowing where everything went wrong.

So there are no warcrimes. If the gods and archmagi are imposing rules, then there are laws forbidding atrocities, but the question becomes if said warcrimes are within their authority.

>Because there's really no laws forbidding atrocities in war in Faerun as far i know meaning that players are free to do as they wish
I don't believe you're a DM if you say this shit with a straight face.
1) Even if there are no "laws" that hardly means players cannot be impeded
2) There almost certainly are laws from some group, somewhere, that are anti-warcrime in Faerun. Have them hunt down your players.

Just because a region is too primitive to have a written, formal law regulating warfare does not mean there is no customary law regulating it.

Like 5e's Flaking rule,, I would prefer these attacks not to exist. They are either so weak as to be pointless, or so overwhelmingly potent that everyone will gravitate toward them and prompt an arms race

Is there any reason to use a different system from 5e when DMing genres other than fantasy when your players are used to 5e? As long as you make new races and classes 5e seems like a fairly versatile system. What would drawbacks of using 5e mechanics in a sci-fi or modern setting be?

Retarded as in obvious? The obvious answer being sticking with 5e?

>> No.76262761

There's honestly no point playing anything other than 5e. It can run literally any game or genre perfectly.

People who play games that aren't 5e are either contrarian edgelord hipsters who hate fun or boomers who are too old and decrepid to understand the best ever rpg rules set ever made.

5e Is very bland and you'd have to invent all the rules yourselves. How do you make space dogfights between spaceships interesting with a 5e ruleset without having to homebrew your own system for it?
How do you make a fun fantasy game about killing orcs and trolls, while exploring dungeons and finding treasure with a system as barren as 5e?

>> No.76262903
Quoted By: >>76263488

Seriously? 5e would be complete shit for anything outside fantasy.

Cyberpunk? No rules for hacking, cybernetics or drones
CoC/Dark Heresy style investigation? No rules for insanity, skill system is poorly designed for investigation and intrigue, and think it'd be hard to get the power level right for combat.
Space opera? No rules for spaceships or space combat
Modern war story? Ranged combat would be repetitive af

Sure, it could be done but it seems like you'd need to do a massive amount of work to house rule it into anything decent. And at the same time you'd be stripping out a lot of the core classes which seems wasteful in of itself.

In terms of projectile energy, my understanding is that a longbow might be around 100 Joules, while an arquebus could be well over 1,000. It's not hard to see how that kind of 10-to-1 advantage could prove pivotal, even if the arquebus was comparatively slow and cumbersome to operate.

>> No.76263583

If we talk about the cheap, mass produced not rifled muskets given to line Infantry, the bow is straight up more accurate.
But thats not what these where made for.

This is actually a really interesting thing that only really happened this noticeable in Japan.
In europe, Bows, Armor and Guns existed together for a long time.
Whilst the japanese army went straight from Medival Warfare to the "Modern" Warfare.

A 170lbs Warbow has around 130 Joules point blank, so your guess is pretty accurate.

>> No.76263589

There is no 'the gun'. Are we taking about 1350s handgones? 1450s arquebus? 1700 muskets? 1800 muskets? 1850 lever action rifles? 2000s Assault Rifles?

The advantage of 'the bow' (a still very broad category, but narrower than 'the gun') against weapons changes drastically depending on which. It also changes drastically depending oh what the other side is wearing.

If you gave me the choice of 100 experienced archers with longbows and 100 experienced riflemen with 1800s rifled barrel muskets, to face a group of 1700s musket armed men, also experienced, I'd take the longbow everytime.

If I was going to face armored men at arms from 1350, I'd take the riflemen.

And if assault rifle is an option it trumps bow everytime. So like, define your shit before making claims.

>> No.76263637

There is such a thing such as 'wasted' energy. If 130 joules are killing someone and you are using a 4k to 5k joules weapon (actual muzzle energy of a brown bess musket), you are basically putting way more energy into it than needed.

Magic is not something you "use" to enhance your combat capabilities. That's idiotic.
Nowadays any rogue can learn to cast a fireball but do they understand the complicated process of gathering the energy around you and transforming it? The meaning of the words of power they babble with that horrible barbaric accent, thus butchering a language from a civilization that was old before theirs was even born? The subtle ways of materialization and transformation that will eventually allow them to understand the forces of the universe and beyond, thus allowing them to bend reality to their will? NO. Of course they don't. They are idiots. Meatheads who only covet gold and gems solely because they're pretty and can be exchanged for debauchery and comfort. Who cares if a diamond can contain your very essence or can preserve the purity of one's soul? I'm sure any town harlot will give you a good shag for that! Perhaps even trap you in marriage, which is enough of a curse if you're unwise enough, which they often are. Obsidian? Let's make a knife with it instead of a powerful artifact to absorb curses and use them to empower you! These "people" who use magic only repeat what they've either been taugh by dropout wizards or "invent" a most inefficient form based on an ancient method they never bothered to actually study. They wear charms and trinkets and objects meant to be worn by learned wizards. Not your grandma the herbalist or your dad who mates with wolves. REAL wizards. And what do they get? Bigger fireballs! More destructive power which eventually tends to swing back at them in full force! The fools then go: "Oh but those are the ways of magic. Magic is mysterious!" NONSENSE. Magic is a SCIENCE and these people are no different than people using a toaster to keep their feet warm. They don't understand it, they can barely operate it and they surely didn't invent it. Keep magic away from unlearned hylics and make the world a better place. Thank you very much.

Death can be reverted, whether through fairly simple spells or cheap bargains. The only real constraint is the time you spent dead: your body starts to degenerate pretty instantly, so a great deal of magic is needed to restore the deceased to something more than a vegetable.

Death doesn't care. You'll come back eventually. Take your time.

>> No.76264314

Depends on a few things. If the body is freshly dead (a few minutes tops, usually) and mostly intact, and there's no complications, it's just a quick infusion of magic to bring them back. The mystical equivalent of a defibrillator. Otherwise, absolutely. They have to find out where the soul is, put it in a specially prepared vessel, reunite it with a part of the body or a suitable alternative, then cast the spell.
In some cases the soul needs to be convinced - persuading a warrior to leave the eternal feast/fuck/fight paradise and go back is a hard sell. Suitable alternatives include binding souls to golems, or to sanctified weapons, or in rare cases other objects. The throne of one of the major kingdoms, for example, contains the souls of every monarch who ruled from there so they serve as advisors in death.

>> No.76264523

One idea I was working on is that the resurrection spell is a multi stage spell, with each part being handled by a different god. This obviously stops working when the various gods needed to pull it off stop getting along.
