So, /tg/, up for a game of riddles?
This thing is curious indeed.
While it may move one man to weep, another man is made by it's touch to sing.
It can change a bird of prey to a small dove, white as snow.
It is tougher than diamond, yet as rich as cream.
Is stronger, and indeed harder, than the dream of a naughty girl.
It can make a bad one good, and make a wrong one right.
Indeed one might say that it's more than a feeling.
What is it?

Everyone always treats The Tau as the space commies of 40k, but I'm guessing ost 40k fans aren't big fans of political theory or Marxism in general. Because communists are hardly this united... you wouldn't have the historical feuds between Stalin and Leon Trotsky, or the bitch-fits over at /pol/ where anarchists snub their noses at Marxists, who snub their noses at liberal democrats, who snub their noses as a wall were they simply to put core belief above reason, response, and reality.
To put it simply, I think The Imperium of Man is far closer to communist ideology in that the Imperium is a multitude of all kinds, brought together by a common gal of preserving humanity... but cannot agree on the tactics, the central belief structure, or the priorities on how to do it. What say you /tg/?

Hey /tg/, let's have an Urban Fantasy thread.
Share your favourite works of the genre. Movies, books, music and pictures, anything to draw an inspiration from.
Your favourite versions of vampires, wizards & witches, werewolves and what have you.
WoD and Dresden Files are welcome too.
Frank, if you're reading this: stay the fuck out of this thread.

What's the best way to get started with WH40K? I have a decent amount of money to spend, but don't want this hobby to end up like my Magic: the Gathering phase where I spent close to a grand in a few months and then quit.I don't have any books or figures, but have a decent grasping of the lore and have hundreds of hours clocked on DoW + DoW II and other WH40K video games. Im not really sure what army I want to play. I would prefer my army to be an Imperium-aligned army that focuses on infantry. I really like Imperial Guard, but am not sure if I can create a viable army with just infantry. I would also maybe prefer an army that has infantry which are "few, but elite". I've been thinking about Grey Knights, but Im not really sure. Do I have to get the books or is downloading them acceptable?
Help me get started, please! All help is appreciated! Also, Merry Christmas!
Goa'uld Quest Christmas episode

Last time on Goa'uld Quest, Leviathan, most illustrious godling of high divine pedigree has had much entertainment running around playing heretical criminal, and exacting the first toll on the lessers*. Leviathan moved with intent and purpose on the streets and alleys of Tir Na Nog seeking to divine everything that is relevant to the arrival of Lord Clegoragh, bane of Wadjet, star lord of Ernutet, and more importantly his three Ha'tak class Star crafts scheduled to land on the three newly erect pyramid platforms overseeing the city of Berswith where his host has gotten progressively more inebriated to blend in the unwashed masses. The lordling has then further delved into seeking truths about the world at large, and gaining insight into the ways and paths of the shadow sects who usually pull and prod the unwitting into their schemes.
* It was of course by proxy but that it still counts.
And now, the continuation.
You take not of the situation at hand, or more accurately your host, Sonia take note of the situation at hand and considers where her talents would be better used, a minor oversight chroniclers over the aeons will rectify and depict it with more skill to espouse your greatness.
The options are
 Try to get into the Lo'taur's proximity and preferably good graces
 Retreat to Operations Headquarters to prepare for the scounting op on Mag Mel, retreat of Lord Clegoragh
 Keep on the revolt and rebellion angle working for a more comprehensive planning.
 Scout out the corruptions of the garrison Jaffa
 Pursue the trail of the Human weapons merchants
Merry Maple Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all you Elegan/tg/entlemen and Intelligen/tg/irls out there this fine Christmas Day! I come to you bearing the gift of gobs upon gobs of Writefaggotry! This past January, there were a series of approximately seven threads, over the course of a few weeks, themed upon magical mishaps, transformations, and other such happenstances in your tabletop campaigns. There were tears, there were trolls, there were laughs, and there was fun to be had.
Among these threads came the origin of I. Dryadfag. Tripfagged so because I wrote a story of a Dryad. Namely a Fighter, who died, and then was reincarnated into a Dryad. People loved it, people hated it, people accused me of being a fetishistic /d/eviant and told me to GTFO. But I return, and I have for /tg/ the continuation and reboot of Maple's Story. Before I begin though, I come to you with but a humble request, /tg/.
For the past week I have spent every possible moment of my free time working on this story. I'm currently in between jobs and quite broke, and the time I should have spent job hunting was instead spent honing my craft and talent for writing and finishing a story I started. I really hate buttcoining. Really I do. But I have no dosh whatsoever. So /tg/ if you can find it in your heart, below is a link to both my paypal and steam account, I ask not for much, any money you might be able to spare will be greatly appreciated.
Right then! With that mushyness done! Sit back and prepare yourself for Maple!

Here's a conumdrum I was discussing with a friend while playing Magic the other day. Some colors obviously get more sexy women in their illustrations because it's "in their color" (Like White has Angels as a tribe, which leads to a lot of hot chicks in white dresses, and Black weirdly has a lot of them due to the Vampire tribe cards), but there's always one or two for every color.
So which are the sexiest illustrations for each color, in your opinion? Let's for the purpose of this exclude all the Planeswalkers, because we all already know who they are and what they look like. If you have a picture to go with your decisions, that works even better.
And hey, don't feel forced to post a list or anything. Just post a single card if you like.
For me, Braids was always a major HNNNNGH, both her proper Black version and her super-cute Blue alt-universe counterpart.

Chaotic Evil and how to play it
114 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: 161941739_402fc7a35f_o.jpg]
/tg/ I am joining a pathfinder campaign and I want to play chaotic evil.
True honest to god, not for the lulz, chaotic evil. My original character idea was to be lawful evil, but I've decided to test my rping chops the best I can.
The world is a steampunk setting and each of the players have made or enhanced a race using the PF Advanced race guide rules.
I created essentially a half construct Gunslinger ork, and I want him to be Chaotic evil.
Elegan/tg/entlemen, please tell me how.
