Role Playing Games Bernd 12/17/2017 (Sun) 20:40 [Preview] No. 12621 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
I want to begin a new series about a Hungarian pen and paper role playing game I've already mentioned in other thread(s). It's called M.A.G.U.S. - Kalandorok Krónikái (Chronicles of Adventurers) and I wish to guide you through it's history, world and maybe even rules. Frankly I'm not well prepared and most likely not the best person for the job, but, well, I'm the only one here and this is the best it's gonna get.
IRL talking with a real M.A.G.U.S. fan about M.A.G.U.S. is a real herculean challange as they can be extremely assburgerish about insignificant details, they can cite some careless comment from an obscure magazine's unknown article anytime and consider it rock solid canon they can base their opinion. It's worse to play it with an experienced fanatic as they are capable arguing to the point of the knife with the Kalandmester or Mesélő (Adventure Master or Tale Teller/Story-Teller, the DM, it's KM from no on) even if everyone knows the First Rule: the KM is always right.

Of course any other rpg can be discussed here, but I'd like to keep this thread for pnp or tabletop rpgs, crpgs should go into the Vidya thread.

This is the Első Törvénykönyv (First Code of Law or Rulebook, from now on ETK). It was published in 1997 for the first time.
>2nd pic
The Nagy Zöld (Big Green). Well this is the real first rulebook, published in 1993. The rules were written for a few years (I saw some parts in a mag from 1991) still it was full of errors, fuck ups and inconsistencies some of them haunt even in current year and will haunt probably forever. Never read it btw.
>3rd pic
Második Törvénykönyv (Second Code of Law) published in 1995 so even this predates the ETK... This one... I don't think it is more than some shitty addendum, even the foreword states every rule in this book is optional.
>4th pic
The continent of Ynev. I've no idea how to pronounce it so I call it Inev. The world itself is called Satriale... no, Satralis it has two other continents noone cares about only some vague shit were written about them and are unplayable by default. I think the ETK not even mentions the planet or operates on the supposition that Ynev is the name of the world. In following posts you will meet names very typical fantasy worlds. Lots of them were borrowed from IRL or other fantasy resources so prepare some familiar sounding stuff.

Oh I forgot. It's just a typical medieval fantasy world, with elves, dwarves and orcs. Luckily I don't know anything about gay-ass halflings.

"Realistically" mechs could be a variation of exoskeletons. With armor, and mount points for weapons.
They don't need to be several meter tall robots. As for the dimensions could be a height of a tank (2-3 m) max, the width and length are obviously less. Not sure about the speed, or agility, or the power source... (gadget X propulsion)
They could fix machine guns, anti-material rifles, infantry anti-tank rockets, even mortars upon them. Or some kind of a multiple rocket launchers (like on the Catapult models or something).
They should withstand small arm and machine gun fire, grenade and mortar shrapnel, anti-infantry mines, but I wouldn't expect them to withstand something more serious.
Maybe they could climb stairs, or the lighter models could scale walls.
They should have some kind of HUD, with screens which could display video feed (from other mechs, or drones).
One problem I see especially with the heavier ones: the pressure from the weight is distributed on too small areas (soles). They would need wide feet.

Battletech has something like this, although it is not available for every infantryman.

Bernd 08/12/2022 (Fri) 07:28 [Preview] No.48478 del
Yeah, something like that.
Except whom they would want to pilot it aren't bodybuilder hunks, but skellington nerds, 60 kilos with the iron bed tops. Weight would matter.
Power source and the engine, servos have to carry their own weight, the skeleton's weight (this could be done from a strong but light material like titanium perhaps, or even aluminium, it's cheaper), the pilot's weight, the armor, and the weapons. Plus the electronics, but that would be the lightest.
I'm also thinking some models don't need to be exoskeletons, the bloke would be placed in a seat in a capsule. These models could be wider.

I liek the idea more and more.
They are better moving machine gun nests then cars, since they could use cover, shooting around the corner (they could put cameras onto the mount points). Although on roads cars would be way faster I believe.
They would be fine from drones, due the the weaponry they carry. I'd add infantry AA rockets too, so they could counter helicopters too. But drones can be peppered with machine guns. Miniguns would also be an option.
And these mechs would work in teams. With their own command mech, and recon mech, with drones, and various electronic recon equipment. They would have night vision, heat vision, all vision. Could have artillery, AA, AT sections. Supply mechs carrying ammo and spare ordnance. Could deploy smoke cover. And do a bunch of shit.
Now just solve the problem of propulsion. And the survivability of the pilot.

Here's an article for me for later readin:
Not sure how credible this site is.

Bernd 08/12/2022 (Fri) 22:26 [Preview] No.48483 del
I guess battletech has that covered too since a thing called Protomechs exists. I guess it's still a mech since its a vehicle that is piloted by a person rather than an armor that he is wearing. It fills that size niche in between the smallest "normal" mechs and the battle armor. This is also where the skinny dudes are put in (the faction that produces them has a eugenics program going on and a caste system based on it). Protomechs can't really survive under heavy fire so they rely on their small size and speed for survival.

Bernd 08/13/2022 (Sat) 07:32 [Preview] No.48484 del
Yes and no. Some could be very much like armor >>48476 but less anthropomorph; and some could be "seaters", even less anthropomorph, which could fit in the category you mentioned. But how the authors and illustrators imagined, this humanoid robot form, no.
>skinny dudes are put in (the faction that produces them has a eugenics program going on and a caste system based on it)
Not horses are bred in that universe, but the jockeys. Heh.
They really wrote their fiction around the theme. Cool.

It's really not a good idea to do it all alone though.

More people helping out means better outcomes for it. And a better outcome of surviving the wilderness

Bernd 06/29/2022 (Wed) 11:53:02 [Preview] No.48104 del
It's hard work, and doing alone it really is just too much I concur.
But it's hard to find reliable people, most who would be into such things are 1. paranoid schizos (and generally useless); 2. too egotistic and just want their own kingdoms and serfs serving them.
For me too is just nice fantasy, maybe a bit of escapism. Since have to tend the garden I have first hand experience that even keeping some order without actually growing enough stuff to keep yourself alive independent from other sources of food can be tiring and grows old fast. Same with doing manual labour of house maintenance and building furniture and stuff.

Maybe relying on animal husbandry as single source of food could be less work. Chicken and goats.

You could just also just build a farming community instead. It's much easier but no good monies

Bernd 07/08/2022 (Fri) 06:09:47 [Preview] No.48207 del
It's not about money. It's about self-reliance, survivalibity, retreat from the insanity of the world (like the constant hysteria that media forces unto us, or the chasing of wealth). The point is a calm and quite life. People in the city are fucked if no water running, no food arriving, no fuel for heating. People in the countryside can make or have all that. In the city you can't just go out and chop the tree in the park an build a fire in the middle of your apartment. You could grow a tomato in a pot but you could produce only so much food you can starve to death with that. If no electricity most professions are useless, just a bunch of hungry mouth looking for food and asking for trouble.
Problem is it's very hard to find similar minded people for a community of such. It's not just an aspect of personal life, like a hobby, but itself is a living. As I stated before. And alone it is a bitch.

Wine. White. But we eat it, or drink it as juice, because not enough for wine, and we have neither the tools nor the facilities to make wine although I could give it to a pal who has, or even to a relative, but again, the amount lacks seriously, plus too much bother.
I dunno their actual type. One looks similar to muscat. Others I think Juhfark or something similar, Hungarian cultivars.

There was no Kohlzine on October because Casey was hidden.
But now we are back, even more autistic than ever and featuring some illustrations by Russian bernd.

We are waiting for your OC and text (any content, really) submissions on our mail: [email protected]
If KC doesn't die by then, lucky #13 will be our ANNIVERSARY issue, so expect lots of quality content(well it depends on your input too, kinda), KC posters, copypastas and more.

If there will be content, it wouldn't be too hard to make PDF with it. So you need to find few writers first - it will be the most complex task.

So if done, the title, Kohlzine has to be changed. As a self-definition it can be stated that it is a continuation of the zine. Also if real effort is done maybe old editors will get on the wagon.
I think it should be extended to other imageboards, reach out to other chans. First and foremost bernd.group, and maybe ernst. A thread should be put to Kohl/make. Any other chan can be involved essentially, it's not the chans that would make it, but the users, Bernds, Anons, whoevers.
Needs an email acc, where the submissions has to be sent. Either some standards have to be set how submissions should look like, or just let all kinds of stuff to be sent, and compiled together as is.
Someone has to edit the stuff. There are publishing applications, I think Scribus is on Linux and probably LibreOffice can be used as well. But in the simplest form some pdf creator tools (I dunno liek PDFChain??) can be used and just make an ebook looking publication, and not a magazine type.
Cover art also has to be created.

1. pick a name
2. set up a mailbox
3. inquire on chans all over
4. wait, check mail time to times
5. post reminders everywhere
6. when enough material sent edit it together
7. create cover art

As I promised I'll write about this book.
It's quite lengthy but you'll reach the end if you read at your own pace. Most of the book isn't dense for me, an economic layman, with the exception of the parts about trade, which left me confused. I'll write what I manage to understand.
The author wrote it to argue in historiographical debates and make some points, but I read it just to add to my historical knowledge.

I'll write in sections, at most one a day so Bernd doesn't get overwhelmed, and will try to make the sections more thematic rather than just a sythesis of each chapter, as Hitler himself suggests in Mein Kampf for how one should mentally organize knowledge. I want to write about:

-Trade and controls of foreign currency and raw materials
-Budgets and revenue
-Businessmen and workers
-Consumer goods
-The fate of different industries
-General progression from 1933 to 1939

If I give up on writing I hope at least to cover the prewar period. I also hope to write on:
-Armaments priorities until 1940

Also. He is a good example of ideological bias. It is more than that "trust the plan" Q thing, they're getting their chops busted for. It's a whole world view and real motivation put into actions. A life built on it. Nowadays it's easy to claim "I'm a this or that" (think "I'm libertarian", "I'm anarcho-capitalist" etc.) when their life and how they live it doesn't really reflects anything. They just find things true and they voice their thoughts.

It was always easy to claim such things, I mean for example champange socialism is not a new term. Comformism always existed but it has never been such an overwhelming norm before. You go to twitter you wave your ideological flag, release your anger, relax and live like everyone else. This new way of life prevents any meaningful change as it comforts pretty much everyone. The illusion of change is worse than normal stagnation.

>how big
Small. Check endchan's board list for daily stat. It does not count Torusers, which is sometimes one.
Problem is, this band is together since 2016-17 and we expressed our opinion on every important topic twice from start to end and backwards. Also posted many interesting shit, most of not in the catalog anymore, and run out of things to post. Plus all of us has our lives, some moved away from imagebaords.
Plus plus, since we are only a few it is less likely that a post will overlap with another's interests, so might not provoke replies.
Plus plus plus, personally I feel less and less the "need to correct" wrong opinions on the internet (I did not have much of that to begin with, and sometimes I rather ridicule, especially if I smell trolling, also I'm busy and tired), and the others aren't keen on argue over bs either. So heated discussions are rare.
During busiest times we had ~15 posters. Now daily ones are me and that Australian fella. And we have some more posters who checks in once or twice per week. And other occasional posters.
If you post something we'll read it, maybe even reply.
