>game has Tolkienian races
That's DnD, not tolkien. The Tolkien-verse doesn't have gnomes, and his orcs were undead abominations incapable of reproduction, so they can't reproduce
Also his elves weren't any taller than normal humans, they were just generally better. I'm not even sure they had pointy ears in the books
>why does every WARRIOR look like a warrior?
Go play a jRPG if you want stick thin weaklings.
>and his orcs were undead abominations incapable of reproduction, so they can't reproduce
corruptedelves. And Saruman/Sauron sure as hell bred a lot of them, somehow.
The thing that bothers me about tolkien elves is that on paper they are better than humans in every conceivable way yet the creator god still considers humans to be better than elves.
>does it look like they go gym 5 days a week?
You do know that exercise can be had outside of a gym, right? For instance, fucking everything adventurers do in fantasy worlds is exercise.
Half-elf is supposed to look not as elfy as the elf, but the elf looks overly elfy so the half-elf looks elf.
Find it kind of stupid how the elf, half elf, half orc and human are almost all exactly the same height, but the dwarf is only about four feet. Shouldn't the half-orc be taller, or the human a little shorter? Then you could have the half-elf be somewhere between human and elven heights.
All halfbreeds and all females look the same in fantasy.
>game has barbaric hillmen
>dey dindu nuffin
A 6 pack isn't just a result of working out. It also requires very low body fat which generally requires a certain diet that's facilitated by the convenience of modern markets and food.
Also, gaining muscle from doing hard work all the time would probably look different from a fit gym goer
It's way better than Beyond Earth and a good alternative to Civ
"Corrupted" as in killed and brought back to some semblance of life, with their bodies twisted by evil magic. They're effectively zombies and literally have to be incubated underground
You only build a 6 pack if you work out your abdominal muscles, which actually serves no realistic purpose, and is also impossible to do without doing crunches and sit ups every day.
Most men in fantasy would actually have a stomach similar to the dwarf if anything.
I respectfully ask you guys to stop posting in this thread.
I fucked up and I intended to make a new one, but for some stupid reason it got bumped and now it just won't fucking die.
Surprisingly, it is the last panel I love the most.
Mind giving me the source on that? because Tolkien was specifically vague on the creation of Orcs. They were mockeries of elves, and evil couldn't "create" from nothing, but the rest is up in the air.
>ITT, people who didn't read the Silmarillion discus about Tolkien
No such game. All games have the same racial archetypes.
No question about that.
I thought I had more of these but apparently I don't.
Very much appreciated.
>no game with playable insectoids, or party members
Just means D&D ripoff in modern fantasy though. Nevermind that the Norse mythology is where Elves and Dwarves originate from. And for some reason, the Dwarves have become Scottish.
>what the fuck is a donut steel?
Sequel soon. Anyone have the
>I'm angry. Angry about elves.
Again, "modern" orcs are a mix or GW orcs and Blizzard orcs (who where copied from GW anyways) and they are totally different from Tolkien and classic D&D orcs.
>Anyone have the >I'm angry. Angry about elves.
kek, I was searching for it, but guess I don't have it in this computer.
Good game that.
I would destroy a gnome woman With my erection
>no game with playable insectoids
knife-ears, go and stay go
Legend of Grimrock...if you don't mind your character being a stat sheet with a picture.
Or you can just make your entire group into little girls with custom portraits.
>tfw no playable quadruped races
>tfw no playable slitherer races
Damn, talentless devs that can't be bothered to create a non-humanoid walking animation.
The humans fought Sauron and won, on multiple occasions and not in a pyrrhic sense. Elves on the other hand got their shit stomped in by Melkor so constantly that by the time men were first awakening on Middle Earth the concept of an elven kingdom was basically gone. Like, they just didn't fucking have those anymore. There were a few hidden cities, and various sanctuaries, but actual mighty kingdoms just didn't happen anymore because every time they tried they got wrecked.
The elves on an individual basis were better than humans most of the time, but they failed in every conceivable sense of the word despite those advantages, whereas the men of Middle-Earth persevered and came out victorious.
Fuck creativity, just put us in a laboratory and we'll shotgun you some Science!
>no flying races because muh balance
But they aren't short and hairy?
Funny how with newer games, and better technology...all people want to make is games about human stories, and human drama...just like the majority of movies and television shows.
>my pic didn't even show up.
I'm pretty sure elves were Illuvatar's special snowflakes. When that one valar made the dwarves, he let them live on the sole condition that the elves were to awaken first. Men were like this wildcard he made. He even had to drop a goddamn mountain on them to stop a huge, possibly pretty technologically advanced invasion force from conquering the Undying Lands.
Norwegian as in a Norwegian forest cat?
Shame very few games have playable frog people.
>Game has orcs
>There aren't a thousand variations of them, including those that have pillaged better armor off of enemy soldiers
IT'S OVERUSED, JUST MAKE SOMETHING ORIGINAL ALREADY
Im kinda jelly of that kid right now.
>Or you can just make your entire group into little girls with custom portraits
The way it was meant to be played.
Healthy teeth are important to snake people
Thoughts on the races for one of my game ideas? Dont take the names literally, just place holder names for the races
(none of it is my artwork, some edited)
>furfags will always ruin every game with animalistic races
Who cares. It's human nature to porn up literally everything.
>Core muscle serves no purpose
Holy shit have ever done any sports that requires quick positioning and balance like ,I don't know ,fighting ?
You think boxers trains abs so much for looks or better respiration ? No ,they do because a thick and powerful core will help them rotate quickly and transfer more power from the legs. It's the same thing with weapons.
this is now a spooky skellington thread
>You only build a 6 pack if you work out your abdominal muscles, which actually serves no realistic purpose, and is also impossible to do without doing crunches and sit ups every day.
Nigga every good punch comes from the core and is amplified by the legs and arms, swinging anything other than a knife requires a good core, running requires a good core, any acrobatics ever require a good core, hell even something as basic as walking requires a good core if you're gonna do it for several hours.
Also abs are actually the easiest muscles to train, you can litterally get visible 6 packs in a month of basic training.
Aren't vaulters just a race from Endless Space that crash landed?
Vaulters are just human-dwarf, underground, space-vikings.
Are there ways to remove their venom sacs or whatever they have like with snakes? I've seen a number of videos of people with pet komodo dragons, and they're always incredibly docile. One video was a guy laying in a recliner with his pet komodo laying on top of him, and he pet it, picked it up and moved it without the thing batting an eye.
The problem is, every "new race" is just a fuckin animal head with a human body. bug people, cat people, lizard people, blue people, etc. The list goes on. They're all the same played out shit.
RPGs dont need different species imo, they just need distinct cultures in humans like in real life.
>I've seen a number of videos of people with pet komodo dragons
Uh, are you sure about that? I think you're getting them confused with some other kind of lizard.
Probably thinking of water monitors, or some other similar lizard that looks like them.
this guy knows, more distinct cultures and more distinct design aesthetics. Give them some crazy wardrobes and crazy architecture. They can still be cat people or pointy ear people or whatever the fuck. Just make em wild and out there
skin resistant to fire/heat
great night vision
resistant to disease
take very along time to heal from wounds
main concepts of the races is that they have varied breeding methods or some races used other races to breed so now that elves are all undead and humans are going extinct they are turning to black orcs/goblins/anything they can find
Yeah and tolkien ripped off norse and arthurian mythology, so who gives a fuck you stypid young faggot?
>being upset at fantasy creatures when pic related exists in reality
>Perfectly good furry ruined by human hair and neon colors
The one video I was thinking of was a black throat monitor, my bad. But I know komodo's raised in captivity are docile and love being pet/rubbed from other videos I've watched from zoos and the like.
>dwarfs are just inflated halflings
Orc master race
>anthro characters look horribly caricatured with out of place human features. the female version can pass as a human cosplaying
Every time. Also the fur is just painted on.
Pathfinder does their Elves and Half-Elves differently - for instance, Elves are usuallu shorter than in mainline D&D - Half-Elves are around human norm with slight point features.
Pathfinder goes full Lodoss War elves
Guild Wars 2. they'r enon playable, and obviously evil
Looks like GW2 to me, but I cant say for sure.
Most real life half-breeds (like mules) are almost always sterile. Anyway else that is only a quarter something probably just has an exotic look to them. Simplest explanation.
Not him, but if you take the boxer case. Boxers have not spectacular abs even though that they may be the best in a melee fight.
Then I can understand the "low fat" thing, but in a harsh world in which you need to fight your way to survive, i'm not sure that diet is a thing. If you need your energy, you better eat some meat and be sure that you're going to survive the next blow. Nearly naked elfs fighting is utterly moronic. It hit sexual spot, but remains moronic
It's a nocturnal sperm hunter. If you ever had one of those dreams where you felt like you had an orgasm and wake out to find your boxers soaking wet, it's probably because of one of those.
Any games where you can play as a reptile naga?
Filthy skinks were born to take dick
GW1 had everlasting transformation tonics.
what about Seaport Hime ?
trancy MICK, a japanese artist
What games let you play as dragonkin and lizardmen besides TERA, Neverwinter, Endless Legend and Grimrock?
3rd edition DND made them more reptilian, and 5th mixed them up again
so they are just short lizardmen?
>What's Endless Legend? Is it good?
The best. See >>282572592
Age of Wonders series.
>race with a sub 40' reach
>uses axes with a similar tiny reach
>also slow and bulky as fuck
>this is apparently the race of warriors
I still don't understand how a literal midget is supposed to take on something like an orc, a race that could deliver a killing blow before they could even get into range to hit anything
Im sure that just like Grimrock I'll put it in my "I need to play this" mental head list and then...not ever play it.
But thanks, I will keep it in mind.
I like when you can get creative with sci-fi
This game was pretty good with the insects anon
Fantasy civ game. Yes, it's good.
EQ/EQ2 had some great fucking races. I still remember my characters
the ranger was a girl and I named her Gadget and fapped to her regularly
I could really go for a thick, meaty orc cock in my mouth right now.
The problem is, the vast majority of writers are lazy hacks, so "distinct cultures" just translates into giving them existing human cultures. Or just making another race of Klingons.
Any "half" races should be exterminated.
Race mixing is fucking disgusting
Ain't nobody wants to go through all the trouble of downloading and configuring a bunch of mods to get your males to look nice and thick. Besides, SAM is still really beta-ish.
>are a furry
then you need to get the FUCK off /v/, right now.
u wot m8
You've literally never seen a strongman competitiion before
>there are people on /v/ who wouldn't fug a sergal
I use anime macros just to piss people like you off. easiest bait ever.
>Žydrūnas Savickas the winner of the World Strongest Man 2014 competition looks like this
I'm still subbed but i'm feeling like i need to maybe jump ship for awhile until things change. My guild is pretty much gone and everybody is just getting more and more upset with the game.
But i'm afraid of coming back later and regretting missing out on older content like i did in MoP.
Why are lizards always the best race in games and why do they never get to do anything?
