>Sorry about Yesterday. Not sure what happened there.
As we examine the runes, I suddenly realize something.
"Hold on. what's with that part? It doesn't look like it's connected somehow."
Rin examines the glyph more closely, before nodding. "I think it's some sort of link. Probably something to let Avenger know if someone tried to tamper with it."
I look at it, and then think back to the other ones. I try and mentally cross the lines in my head... and end up with roughly the same location Merlin gave me for where I was supposedly sleeping in the mountains. "... Weird."
"I'm still not sure what it's for though. It's self contained and not doing anything. I'm not even sure it could be activated remotely."
"It's not drawing energy or anything either. As far as I can tell, it's completely inert." I respond.
"So what? it's a tamper-proof rune made of Dark Magic that does nothing?" Rin shakes her head. "We don't know what it does, he can't activate it unless he's right here, he knows if someone's going to mess with it and there's several more across the city."
"... what does that mean?" Sakura asks confused.
"... i don't know." Rin confesses slowly, biting her thumb. "I feel like we're missing something. Something we don't know or just overlooked somehow."
For now though, we head home and separate, thinking about our next moves.

Okay, to sum it up. our BBEG is a city ala Absalom. Our DM runs extended universe games, so this city represents the Epic Destiny of the last party he ran for (different players entirely).
For reference, the party isn't actually in the universe anymore, but individuals representing their roles are.
But what that leaves us with is a
>Lawful Neutral Metropolis
>Corrupted, effectively Lawful Evil
>Performing Alignment Genocide, attracting young talent worldwide in various Martial, Magical, and Other Arts, but quietly assassinating those that are Chaotic Good or Chaotic Evil.
>Slowly converting their local Region to their Regime.
>Led by around Ten or so 20th level NPCs with Character Classes, Led by 1 Post-20th level Psionic Gnome. Supported in various ways by a couple dozen lvl 20 NPCs sporting Commoner classes.
My group consists of 5 Mid tween lvl Characters.
How do we undo this city? I'm looking for strategies /tg/ has used when in similar situations. The hard part is we cannot focus on just getting to a higher level, since the campaign will cap at 20 and we will still be out numbered.
We have the advantage of surprise.

God. I fucking hate WH40k. Everything in it is so overpowered and ridiculous. Punching a tank to blow it up?
50 cal bullets not able to penetrate Space Marines Armor?
Wearing bigass bulky armor, and yet still being able to move fluidly?
It's like some 12 year old's dream.
Let's make an invincible army, guise!
What's that? Somebody came up with an idea of something that could harm it? Well, we still have to be invincible, so let's give them literally fucking everything!
Plot armor, plot armor, plot armor.
Don't you see why space marines are childish? They even spent 5000 hours designing their own armor and giving it unnecessary skulls and shit.
Yes, I mad. Even the forerunners, in a semi realistic battle, would kick their asses.

Searched and couldn't see one. You know the drill:
>Preferred system / Preferred style of game.
50/50 RP and combat. Want to run an Only War game on skype for folks if possible.
Otherwise, systems I know:
D&D 4E / 3.5
and a FUCKTON of indie games that are quick and easy to run without terrifying character creation and countless modifiers.

I ran a Pathfinder game for a few months and the combat always just seemed too easy. Maybe this is because I was too generous with rewards or whatever, but the CR system didn't seem to help me much at all.
I think I understand it in theory, but it still doesn't seem to make sense.
So as I understand it, if you have a party of 4 PCs, you use their average level as the "CR" for any combat encounter.
But does this mean that if you have a party of 4 PCs at level 1, an "average" combat encounter for them would be, for example, ONE Giant Spider? (https://sites.google.com/site/pathfinderogc/bestiary/monster-listings/vermin/spider/giant-spider )
We're talking about a 4v1 here! 4 players all attacking ONE monster. And one that only gets one turn before everyone else gets theirs, and only has 14 HP! That can't be right...can it?
And if not, how do you figure out how to make truly balanced combat encounters? I seriously ran this campaign for 2 months and I just couldn't figure it out.
