If you can use 'male' in the same sentence, using 'female' is okay. If you can't use 'male' in the same context, then you're being a weird creepy goony goon.

quote:

Male Adventurers

Victoriana is set in the 19th century, which held few opportunities for men to get an education and pursue a career. That said, Victoriana is also a world of high adventure, where it isn't uncommon for ladies to treat their valets more as friends than servants, or for male hermeticists to throw around aetheric bolts with the best of them. Also, adventurers of all stripes rarely follow conventional paths. Players shouldn't feel constrained by the mores of historical Victorian society when it dampens the fun of playing within it.

All that aside, Backgrounds marked with '*' are those that a historical Victorian would expect to include males. We've marked them here for Gamemasters who want to design conventional adventurers or for players who want a traditional background for their male adventurers. Male adventurers are not barred from other backgrounds; using one just requires a bit of rationalisation (such as being a hermeticist or technologist). If the Gamemaster still feels that a particular background is being stretched a bit too far, then he can either require the adventurer to take the Blackguard Privilege or simply disallow the background.

The only real bad sentence feels like "All that aside, Backgrounds marked with '*' are those that a historical Victorian would expect to include males." (I'd write men here instead).

The rest of it is okay grammatically (notwithstanding how lovely it is to tell people that women can't be adventurers).

Well, it specifically says "used up", but it's a fair observation! It's not clear how long it's been since the apocalypse in the original pitch, but it implies it's been a few seasons. The final version will specifically set the timeline at five months later.

Everything everyone would ever want to know about the lifespan of petroleum fuels - http://www.bp.com/content/dam/bp-country/en_au/media/fuel-news/lifetime-fuel.pdf

tldr:
petrol, two stroke mix in equipment - in 30C weather degradation starts to occur after as little as 2 weeks
petrol, diesel, two stroke mix sealed in containers - 1 year or more (if seal is broken, petrol and two stroke will degrade after 3-6 months)

Eating aside, the Farm feels very reminiscent of Colonia Dignidad (or any other camp for political prisoners, which I'm sure was the point).

...DW you can summon infinite monsters by tapping a lockpick against a door, and therefore DW is insane and incoherent.

But hold on, tapping a lockpick against a door is a completely different action than trying to pick the door's lock. It ought to be impossible to fail the former (because who would require a roll for that sort of thing?)

I don't think the lance rules take into account mounted combat, which is generally an issue with attempts at trying to cover every possible interaction like these - there's always something you forgot.

It doesn't - there are additional bonuses for being on the horse.

2e DMG posted:

In mounted fighting, a character gets a +1 bonus to his chance to hit creatures smaller
than his mount. Thus, a man on horseback gains a +1 bonus to his attack rolls against all
medium-sized creatures such as other men, but would not gain this bonus against another
rider or a giant. Those on foot who fight against a mounted rider, have a -1 penalty; this
not applied to attacks against the mount, however.

Unrelated, but I went back through the last Godlike update, and the :stare: reaction to the Soviet Union strapping bombs to dogs as anti-tank weapons but the Soviets having problems with it because the dogs would keep running under their own tanks.

Uh, that wasn't made up for Godlike. The Soviets really did try that, and they really did have that particular problem leading to them abandoning it. Governments in WW2 were willing to try weird poo poo.

I remember that the reason dogs were attracted to the Soviet armour is because those are the machines that they'd trained with; if the Russians had been able to use captured nazi tanks, the plan would have worked as intended.

Let me pitch y'all this idea: how about we don't strap bombs to dogs.

I mean in terms of running it as a setting, I have all the setting and species notes, people could run it in any system they want today. In terms of publishing it someday, I think Savage Worlds already had a blimp supplement. What we need is some designer with an established ruleset that is actively looking for cool settings to wander into this thread.


I actually also have a full story about Chester and his crew smuggling hooch in his custom blimp, the Arbor Devil.

This is so loving aggravating when trying to critique work, there's a guy I no longer speak to who justifies all the Near-Rape storylines (and the general way all the female characters become little more than an extension of Kirito) in SAO as 'It's just how the story is, how else would Villain X be seen as a threat?'

The creator is not innocent, if something is in a story, the creator put it there - you can't praise the good parts the creator makes and shift the bad parts as some kind of fundamental truth of the world that the creator has no control over.

Stunning parallels with "of course I killed your dude, that's what my character would do."

I can't believe this is the best quality picture I can find, but this is way better than the 3E books. 3E books just looks like some sort of uninspiring faux-tome, here you've got a fighter smashing a door down with his swoleness so hard it explodes, while an ancient wizard prepares to throw a fireball and a rogue is wondering how much of the loot he can steal under his allies' noses without getting them all killed. It tells you what this show is gonna be all about.

Best Cthulutech fix: Lovecraft was a huge racist and his stupid monsters are a boring grab bag that's highly overused by everyone. But let's not fix that, let's just shift it a few meters to the side. Let's replace Lovecraft with Walt Disney, and his dumb monsters with furries. And then let's switch the setting from the future to the 1930s. And boom, you're playing Talespin. Way better.

...oh right, the villains are sky pirates and Thembrians.
