Sup /tg/!
I've often thought that, if properly handled, the introduction of modern technology into a fantasy setting could be rather fun to play through and as a destabilising influence, it's not something that can easily be solved by simply stabbing it in the face.

Has anyone here successfully incorporated more modern technology into a fantasy campaign?

What are some fictional settings that manage to mix modern technology and fantasy well?
Hell's gate is an obvious example, except there are no traditional fantasy races.

I imagine Elves would be fantastic riflemen.

Hiding from a Minotaur at that precise moment in actual fact.

Where did you think rifle lube came from?

Sword World.

Shadowrun, you you just said is exactly shadowrun, aka the worlds best setting (and mid-tier gameplay).

>>44733402
I thought that was RIFTS?

>>44733402
Shadowrun is a modern setting which has fantasy elements added, rather than the reverse.

I don't know how successfully, but in a prior game, the DM incorporated a genderbent Stuntman Mike (I think) complete with car, in typical D&D fantasy. If nothing else it made the game pretty tense and scary at times, when being stalked by a car killer and all you've got is horses and wagons.

>>44733476
...huh, how was it rationalised? And how the hell did you deal with it?
>>
>>44733688
I believe it was a case of magic portal fuckery, which lead to all sorts of wacky happenings and items showing up, though the car was obviously the most prominent example. The driver herself wasn't magical, she just ended up getting unwillingly portaled to the "real world" or the game equivalent of it, and while there got a car which came with her when eventually she got portaled back. Once back in the fantasy world, she kept her car for awhile till a magic user was able to create a magical source of fuel. After that she became a contract killer of sorts.

How we dealt with it, pretty badly actually. At least three of us were killed outright at different times in the game, and the rest of us injured to varying extents. Eventually we managed to catch her without the car and took her prisoner.

You're kidding, right?

It's like she wants to take it in the butt.

Well, two pages later she does eject the magazine and drop the rifle on it's head, whilst trying to work out how to remove the safety.

Or the inverse. I felt there was too much to explore that wasn't for reasons.

Wow.
I'm genuinely surprised at this revelation.

>>44732962
I just finished reading a book series about the guy ending in a fantasy world and starting to recreate modern weapons and outfit elves and humans with them to fight Ragnarok.

It is cheesy and full of smut power fantasy but I actualy liked it.

Few chapters are freely avalible here

>>44732962
is that the only manga/story to have elves with sniper riffles.

I saw some pics on tg, were they from some particular book?

Gate - Thus the JSDF fought there
http://bato.to/comic/_/comics/gate-thus-the-jsdf-fought-there-r5353

/a/ and /k/ have been handling the scanlations. When it was first released, new chapters would be posted here as well. Though that was a while ago.

It's good fun, but it has its flaws. It's rather nationalistic in places, though not as much as the light novels it's based on. On the other hand, of you want to see a dragon get hit by an rpg, then this is the manga for you.

I knew there was some reason I stopped reading it a few chapters in... well several reasons I guess.

Exactly two halves of shadowrun are good. High tech corporate mercenary espionage with dangerous megacorps watching your every move, and magic bleeding through into the real world. if you take the ideas separately, and put the fantasy bit in say, the 11th century, you have two wonderful settings. As is, it's actual garbage
