The only thing I would play 3.5 for these days is an absolute balls-to-the-wall ridiculously powergamed clusterfuck of a game. :black101:

It's pretty cool to do things like spontaneously cast the entire evocation school and most of conjuration too as a wizard. The whole point is to come up with new ways to astound the DM.

If you pick your feats right, your spells are immune to Divination effects.

Hmm, which feat is that? I could use it.

Can you make a haunted B-17 that's virtually impossible to permanently destroy?

While you'd need to get Death From Above, the aircraft sourcebook, to have the B-17, you very well could. If you leveled it up to Haunted Vehicle level 9 out of 10, you could have full ranks in all three of its anti-destruction capabilities, giving it damage reduction 30/+3, spell resistance 20, and the ability to heal 1d20 points of damage to itself every minute.

I doubt any sane GM would allow it, but it would be glorious.

Out of curiosity how much HP would it have at that point and how much damage would a maximum-velocity crash deal?

I'm a bit disappointed in Hell Freezes over. Baba Yaga having whatever class levels the GM things would be best is good, but it's really missing some of the more creative stuff. I mean Lysenko is around for this, where's the weird hybrid plant/animal monsters?

Hahahaha, flying a B29 loaded with an a-bomb through the pupil of Jormungandr. That is absurdly :black101:

It looks pretty awesome, but if there are two USSR-in-supernatural-WW2 books in a row with no Lysenko I'm going to get pissed.

Honestly the only thing more ridiculous might be Gundam's use of heat blades, which are literally just het' up swords and axes that somehow function on par with beam sabers.

It's not totally unreasonable. Most metals loose the majority of their structural strength when heated to about 80% of their melting point or so. If you have a metal that has a melting point much higher than gundanium or whatever the mechs are built out of, you can heat it in order to take advantage of that effect. Unlike a beam saber, you'd need to drive it in and keep pushing, which to be fair seemed to be the case for heat hawks (the heat rod was a slightly different matter if I recall).

Next time, HOMEWORK or The Unlimited Psyduck Works returns!

More audience participation time! Guess what the Homework chapter is about and/or why I dread it! Points will be awarded by QI rules where it doesn't matter if you're right, only that you're interesting. The winner will receive a mention at the beginning of my Homework portion of the review. Sorry guys, but I'm lazy and broke.

Homework has got to be something players do between game sessions for in-game benefit. Maybe you get points of some sort for drawing characters or promoting the game?

Because 90's multiculturalism!

That reminds me, I went to a panel about "writing the hard stuff" at the Escapist Expo, and a guy there said he wrote the Holocaust sourcebook for OWOD, so I'm kind of interested in seeing that at some point.

I'm reminded of the people that kept wanting to play hatchling hydras back in my high school days of running it. I could have used some advice about that. :(

So how do those compare with the dreaded hatchling dragon?

Wasn't someone doing a wiki of them? Or was that just a set of links to the posts?

EDIT: Yeah, silly me it's in the first post.

I'm wondering if the teenage CEO is a reference to Persona 3. It sure sounded like Mitsuru there.

I'm sure there are now clear themes to determine what is 00's design. I'm not sure what they are though

"It's d20 system for no good reason?" That's probably more early-00s though.

Same, and the only one I still recall with any fondness. Mostly because in a setting with a very, very, VERY heavy emphasis on morality (often led astray by D&D's lunatic alignment into Good/white vs Evil/black, as seen in Libertad!'s mentioning of "these elves are TOO good and that's why they're xenophobic racists," or "the NotSpanish Inquisition Empire was the result of goodness becoming too powerful"), it was very nice to follow the misadventures of a bunch of desperate deserter-fugitives who were searching for their own place in the world - not for any grand and preachily righteous reason, but because they wanted to live. Very much more real-feeling than almost every other struggle in the series, and this despite every character involved being a winged lizardman.

Yeah, my favorite as well.
