    Necromunda The Spire: An N17/N18 Praising Thread

    Arch Warhammer is not an ideal representative of the community. Gamza is more in the low-key 'cucks and soyboys' style. This little empty subreddit is a pretty fair representation. [trigger warning: cringe]

    Necromunda The Spire: An N17/N18 Praising Thread

    I don't mean unrelated right-wing nonsense, I mean GW Youtubers. Folks like Commissar Gamza and Arch Warhammer who broadly keep to GW topics but reliably gnash and howl at any suggestion of inclusivity. And the commenters who come with them, of course. GW isn't unfortunately adjacent to this...

    Necromunda The Spire: An N17/N18 Praising Thread

    I think it's a decent gesture. GW isn't at the forefront of good representation, and while their worlds do have some kind of creative inertia which makes it a little harder to introduce stuff, they seem to have been happy to make sweeping changes in the last few years and haven't chosen said...

    Delaque gang as.....

    Imperial Guard would be fine. They come from a million worlds and have no uniform, a Guard regiment can look like anything. They also have a good look for genestealers. Scale will be a question no matter what you play them as, so whether that's a deal breaker for you seems like an independent...

    Necromunda The Sump: An N17/N18 venting thread

    Fair enough, but it's not a strong argument in favour of those rules. It's common, but not strong. It essentially amounts to 'please disregard the poor rules', and you can look at any old advice thread from that game to see that people didn't. Nobody was recommending massive weapons, or indeed...

    The fighter with the 2h weapon (ie. one attack) will not only deal fewer hits, but also take more hits, because both things depend on the same test, in which they are hobbling themselves. Between two identical fighters (assuming they each have 1 or 2A), one with two knives and one with a 2h...

    As I said, AG teams have the early advantage. Once the skills start rolling in, teams with more fragile players have to deal with increasing player turnover. Opponents get stronger, but Wood Elves don't get any tougher. The result is an increasing casualty rate for Wood Elf teams. Chaos are...

    There are plenty of issues with Blood Bowl tbf. My least favourite is how different teams develop to different levels. The longer a league goes on, the more it favours bashy teams. Welves start strong and hit their ceiling early, Chaos have a tough time but inevitably crawl to the top spot once...

    Block, yes. Dodge, not so much. The pool of real choice skills isn't extremely deep, but after 'block-so-you-live-to-skill-up-again', it really depends how the player is being built. Mighty blow, guard, wrestle, sure hands, kick, dirty player, frenzy. Blodge is great for staying on your feet...

    I've been back on the Blood Bowl recently, and that's a pretty neat system despite advances being slow and mostly player-driven. You roll 2d6, and usually you get to choose from your main skill tables. Roll a double, you can choose any skill (barring mutations, which are only for some folks)...

    I realise these writers have to churn something out on the regular and it can't all be gold, but this is extremely poor. The problem here is the writer, either genuinely or wilfully, not knowing what a story is. If people are listening to your story, and you throw in a lengthy digression that...
