subtle geology thread
+2 Illusion spells per day
Dwarf porn thread? Dwarf porn thread!
do you prefer them igneous or sedimentary?
I prefer pure minerals. They provide a better focus for spellcasting.
Dunno about the stats. What do you think?
I don't know if it has a technical name, that's what they call when they peddle it to New Age people.
-5 to Will saving throws.
Sounds better than "quartz with pyrite" anyway.
I always thought it was Hematite with Pyrite. That said, I don't know much about actual geology besides the names of the pretty stones I like.
"Lemurian Jade" is really just a made up gemstone anyway. Jade, quartz, and fool's gold.
Druids gain a +3 on all spell rolls while it is on their person.
This is a blue board
and a mineral thread, are precious metals allowed?
Create/command Undead, but only those who died at sea
I have no idea what this is. Saved it years ago and thought this filename was fitting i guess.
>bonuses to INT and DEX
>not to INT and STR
There's a whole universe of cool rocks, metals and minerals out there, why would it need to go in that direction?
Something extremely evil and/or mindbogglingly mystical.
>implying color isn't linked to stats through embedded leylines
Red is STR
Orange is DEX
Yellow is CON
Green is INT
Blue is WIS
Violet is CHA
The Fire Opal should actually be STR and WIS
Gold is literally the most pleb-tier precious metal
Don't be so jaded. You shouldn't take it for granite that the thread will be derailed. It started off a bit rocky, but now that more people are posting, we can get a bit boulder.
Copper and copper alloys don't get enough respect. Brass and bronze are both fantastic. Plus, it's got some more interesting stuff going on like Shakudo.
Induces a trance -like state in anyone who spends a round looking at the pyramid. Affected creatures become enthralled with blussfully meditating on the nature of their navel or other insignificant physical attribute (hair, fingernails, relative size of creature's digits, etc.)
Save vs. Wis, affected creature makes saves at disadvantage. Affected creatures may attempt to save against the effect every round. If jarred or disturbed in some way, the creature may make an unmodified save, though if successful the affected creature becomes angry with the disturbance for the next two days due to them "harshing" the affected creature.
Or, it actually gains additional/alternate properties after oxidizing. Most copper and bronze statues are created with the intention of oxidizing, so I wouldn't exactly say it's a design flaw. A bronze helmet pulled from a tomb is theoretically still perfectly usable.
Sphere of Summon Abyssal Scavenger.
Abyssal scavengers are small, eyeless creatures not much larger than a softball, and are little more than a nuisance on their lonesome. They are characterized by their shiny chitinous shells and almost comically oversized teeth, each of which is more like a rasping file than an actual tooth.
These creatures feed on the detritus of the Abyss, spending their days rolling from place to place in gangs (2-7) or mobs (8+). They are capable of impressive jumping heights for their size (through unknown mechanisms) and have a preferred tactic of attacking the eyes of larger creatures while the remainder of the Scavenger's group latches onto the unfortunate victim where possible to put their rough, oversized incisors to work.
Whoops, forgot to add:
Usable 4 times per day, summons n+1 Abyssal Scavengers per use, where n is the number of times the sphere has been used that day. Charges replenish every midnight.
Can be used twice in a day if the second set of four charges are used on the night of a new moon.
>Low hardness, prone to shattering if struck against medium and heavy armor
>+2d8 to fire spell damage
>Favorable weather conditions if some prerequisites are met. Roll knowledge (Religion)
Ah, but gold has been considered valuable by pretty much everyone for ever - partly because it's near untarnishable and is really easy to shape. And it's only just beaten by silver for cables.
For the untarnishable thing it was also long considered important in creating immortality as well.
also I don't have much good pictures in this theme other than gold
That'd be pretty cool - maybe a metal that when uncorroded is a good source/enabler for magic, but when corroded provides excellent shielding against the same - wizards shining with bling are incredibly dangerous, while warriors covered in armour with an obvious patina are nigh immune to magic
That makes it good medium of trade and great for decorations, but not of much use outsside those two purposess.
Neither of which is really a thing outside of civilization, where murderhobos spend majority of their time.
Also good for tablets you want to preserve information - it's malleable as shit for all your letters and fancy pictures and it doesn't tarnish, so it's only actual damage you have to guard against
Sunset Fire Opal
+140% Fire Resist
Igneous, although metamorphic rocks are nice as well.
Sometimes I wonder If there are other people actually jacking off to minerals.
Unlike humans, I like my stones cut
Actually, having checked out the Gemology, because Obsidian was used as a currency and commonly as a tool, it's basically be something like:
>+5 on craft checks
>+/-5% to sales and purchasing power
+10 What The Fuck
1/8 chance of Temporal Flux
Small bonuses depending on the color?
that's just the way that specific crystal grows. Crystals all have a habit, they don't just grow into random shapes. The habit is a manifestation of their lowest energy state on an atomic level. e.g. the lowest energy state for fluorite is an octohedron.
The crystal lattice in a cubic mineral is cubic in shape, so the crystal grows into a cube. Similarly minerals like tourmaline grow into a pillar-like shape with a hexagonal cross-section because that's the preferred shape of their crystal structure.
Of course it only does that if the growth is unrestricted. Usually in nature you get either a lot of very small crystals, or an imperfect shape due to there not beign enough space, the growth on one or more faces being disrupted or multiple crystals growing from the same point of origin and fusing together.
I've always wondered what the geological/hydrological history something like the Underdark. I mean caves IRL were created by water eroding limestone so does that just mean that worlds with an Underdark have a shitton of limestone?
I tried to make it people onde day and see what was behind it, but I just don't get it man.
I saved some 5 or so tile patterns I thought pretty and tried fapping to them.
In the end I managed to but I didn't feel anything, not happier or sad, grossed out or anything, it's beyond my understanding.
Geology threads are the comfiest threads on /tg/
I don't know squat about these here rocks, about hydroxidizations or what have you, but they sure are pretty. >>44879264 is legitimately one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen.
First time I saw it, I was sure it was photoshop or something but no. It's real.
This one's pretty trippy, too
No, this is a legit mineral, pretty hard too.
diamond figurine, it turns man genitals into one of the hardest materials of the world
anyone know what the knife is made of? I can't even find the original pic now.
Creatures which suffer damage from this knife must make a CON saving throw. Creatures which fail this save are forcibly turned into a gaseous, smoky fascimile of themselves for 2d4 rounds. The creature is considered to be under the effects of the Gaseous Form spell for the duration of the transformation.
The wearer's stat changes are reversed.
Sedimentary near others.
Igneous for me.
I had to Google this.
How exactly does telling a Dwarven Lass her nipples are rich and soft as gold supposed to get her going? Granted, this is coming from a Human perspective, but still. What fuck.
Pic related is called a "pap", or breast-shaped hill.
Gold is the most soft of metals, while still a metal. It's also very valuable and resistant to corrosion.
So anon, I just said her boobs are juicy, worth breaking your back for and won't sag or become worse with age.
All this from a human with a voice unlike the raspy coughing she hears from those dust-breathing hairy knees.
Look at her face, anon. She shaves. She's not into being all that dwarf.
>Something about India causes gold to tarnish as though exposed to sulfur
>as though exposed to sulfur
It's all the atmospheric sulfur from their astonishingly polluted air, dingdong.
