Hey /tg/
There is no Civ General

Seems to be a lot of them popping up now days. Some of them are even pretty good.

Feel free to discuss and share civs.
>>
>>44702069
Wtf is that pic op?
>>
>>44702295
How is that a civ? It makes no sense.
Op..wteverlovingf?
>>
>>44702257
It is an alternative chart.
>>44702295
Creativity isn't shitposting.
>>44702355
It is exactly like every other one but with new pictures.

>>44702368
Its nothing at all like other civ charts.
It almost offends me just seeing it.
Anyone ever seen it used?
How the fuck do you have a civ of housethings?
That's just an awful example of a civ chart op.

Take your shitposting to >>>/b/ .

>>44702432
1. It is exactly like other civilization charts, if you bother to think abstractly for a moment.
2. Cute pictures shouldn't offend you.
3. Yes, a few times.
4. Just like any other fantasy race. Use your imagination.
5. Incorrect.
>>
>>44702490
Its insanity put on a civ chart. It answers nothing.

D&D is just fine for "fantasy", IMO.
Think it needs changed?
Look at that civ chart, and behold " change".
>>
>>44702554
You're preaching to the preacher here. This guy has a long history of trolling up the Civ threads. Just wait for Crog to show up, he has a copypasta explaining this guys insanity.

Ever hear of Myrmidon, Dadaragon or Uguumon? All the same art school jerkoff
>>
>>44702503
I simply can't agree.

Its just too abstract for my mind anon.
>>
>>44702554
It answers a lot.

>D&D
>fine for fantasy
No.
>>
>>44702591
Ah. The one name I've seen. Bitching because someone used "his" chart.
>>
>>44702591
Those sure are some implications.

>>44702592
The abstraction is that you swap the pictures and use poetic descriptions instead of meaningless stats.
>>
>>44702606
What is wrong with d&d for fantasy?

Incorrect. That is someone else.

>>44702640
It fosters a bunch of shitty habits and tropes that ruin fantasy as a whole. It lead to the cancer that is World of Warcraft.
>>
>>44702640
It's popular, apparently
>>
>>44702664
And appeals to the lowest common denominator.
>>
>>44702660
WoW, has made a few billion dollars, entertaining the fuck out of people. I don't know many "gamer" people that haven't at least tried it. I agree its pretty cancerish tho.
>>
>>44702638
>swap stats for poems

That's just....
Just no. Anon. No.
>>
>>44702745
It is more satisfying than a bland description with a couple stats ripped from D&D.

I didn't make this chart so you could shitpost. I just wanted to see civilization quests try a new direction.

Obviously that bloody abstract abortion isn't drawing much support here.

Perhaps you can rework it a bit?
If those civs do not spark interest, try using other "abstract" races.

I tried. Nobody liked those either.
>>
>>44704655
OK. That pic, is a lanternman?
My questions: do they eat? If you crack their glass 'head', do they die? Can they control their light? Are they living, or more like an animated object? Are they stupid?
Can you describe them?
Because I can't. I can make shit up, but I don't have a baseline to even tweak and make work.

How would you explain a baseline for that race? Without some sort of stats?

>>
>>44704759
>My questions: do they eat?
They require fuel, be it oil, gas, or kindling.

>If you crack their glass 'head', do they die?
They would go into a coma-like state until they are repaired. It would take total bodily destruction to kill them.

>Can they control their light?
How do you mean?

>Are they living, or more like an animated object?

Somewhere between the two.

>Are they stupid?
No more so than anyone else.

>How would you explain a baseline for that race?
Basically human but with more resilience to damage.
>>
>>44704792
The point was, what I make up, will differ from the next cm. Not a ' minor' difference, but a total difference.
Thus, any player would need the cm's explanation in detail. Every time.
>>
>>44704827
Prove what?
>>
>>44704878
Good answers.
By control the light, I mean can they dim it? Is it brighter when they are angry? Can they turn it off? Or is it like a facial expression?
>>
>>44704878
Putting that in the races description, might help draw interested players.
>>
>>44702432
>civ of houses
I saw a thread here on those. Last year I think.
They lined up near a mountain to provide rest for pilgrams or something.
>>
>>44704884
>The point was, what I make up, will differ from the next cm.
Yes, that's a feature not a bug. See my point here: >>44704792

>>44704913
Yes, I suppose they could.
Yes, that seems appropriate.
Yes, but it puts them into a comatose state. It isn't advisable.
I suppose it is.

>>44704939
Putting boobies in it might draw more. :P
>>
>>44705026
>boobies
Fucking fetish threads...
No need for more of that shit.
>>
Quick, someone give me an easy to use tools to make maps, and/or link me to a thread that has some more basic stuff of what to do as a DM while the players wax about strategy in the thread waiting for me to post, so I can make one of these fucking lantern civs or something.

I found this creepy picture that might help.
>>
>>44702069
My primary issue with this picture is that the creator did not even try to make it playable. When a civ thread is made with this as its base it does not close due to closed mindedness, but rather a lack of planning for how these creatures actually function. Instead of setting up a basic lore + conflict, he wanted us to decide how everything should work. We tried and questions about the basic biology of the creatures, or necassary aspects to their survival and were met with 'be creative retard'. That is why this is a shitpost.
