The WLD is so completely awful, but there is one way to force the Worlds Largest Dungeon make sense.

The Metaplot is a blind, a ruse. Maybe it was created by some feindish god to torture mortals (and the Celestials within are frauds, which explains their ineptitude); or maybe it's a way for a more righteous God to eliminate mortals with a certain black destiny (which explains the Celestials' inactivity).

Either way? I like the concept, but it seems like Ptolus does the concept so much better. WLD's implementation is utter poo poo.

It looks like they changed the art at the last minute, like the Dire Whale was supposed to be on its side and that "dorsal fin" was actually one of the pectoral fins, but then someone at the office told the artist "No, that's confusing" so they just drew a new head on and added an extra fin on the side.

And then drew in some little tiny whales to cover where the head used to be for scale. :3:

Yeah, I've always wanted to see a sci-fi RPG where Earth was generally considered by aliens to be some kind of poisonous hell-planet.

Earth's also the densest planet in the Solar System (5.51 grams/cm3), and our iron core is probably bigger than it should be thanks to the impact that made our moon. Earth is something like 81% more massive than Venus (5.204 grams/cm3), which is of very comparable size. Mars (3.94 grams/cm3) is right out. Mercury (5.427 grams/cm3) comes closest but Mercury's mostly iron.

So, in addition to being full of nasty acids, secreting caustic salt and water, and crawling with aggressively infectious bacteria, we're also probably noticeably stronger than another comparable terrestrial species from a comparably sized planet due to Earth's higher gravity.

It's us. We're the horrible space monsters (and so is our planet).

They also gain the ability to impose a -4 caster level penalty on someone for one minute a few times per day, meaning that they probably lose access to their highest two tiers of spells.

Does it actually say that? I'd think that'd just a be a penalty to caster level tests for things like overcoming spell resistance.

KROMORE

mercenaries get the weird ability to make makeshift bombs out of "a simple fuel and a hard object. (Ex. Rocks, Tin can, Battery, etc.)," and can, at higher levels, and with a decent intelligence score, guarantee that they can make makeshift bombs so fast that they can make and throw them in the same round, and still have an action to spare.

This was from a page back, but is that any hard object? Does it specify size?

Because while the idea of making a bomb out of a match and a pebble is amusing enough, I'm pretty sure the planet itself is a "hard object" and even if the hard object isn't instantly consumed on use that's gotta be a pretty hard explosion to dodge.

And if the hard object is instantly consumed on use then welp.

there was once a "Vulgar" house, the Divous clan who had a Boar as their crest.

And yet, like Weresharks, Boars are apparently unplayable?

There goes my dream of convincing you to make Bebop and Rocksteady as sample characters when it comes time to show us all how broken the characters are.

Playing catch-up with the thread and argh, if they wanted a semi-obscure lion god with a bad rap and a history of making war why didn't they use Nergal? :psyduck:

He'd be perfect for the role. Sun God, Plague God (summer was the dead season in Babylon, you don't grow food when it's hot), godly powers that include such feats as "turning into a lion" and "having a mace with two lion heads on it," he'd've been great because Nergal would've added another layer (bringing the total up to maybe one entire layer) of doubt to the cat trio's motives.

Looks suspiciously like Space Battleship Yamato. Phone posting so no pic, but Google provides.

They're pretty much straight out of Legend of the Galactic Heroes.
