Welcome to the new /vx/ board - Videoganes and Paranormal! Just as mlpol was born of the merging of two wildly different topics into a single merged board, this board combines the topics of 4chans /v/, /x/, and /tg/ boards. And while /vint/ did not live on as we did, this board pays homage to the board, created and killed by an indifferent 4chan administration, in the flags that adorn this board.

As this is a new board, it does not have a firmly established set of rules. Unlike 4chan, this is a user driven site, and we are looking for user input into what the rules of this new board should be. Post your suggestions in the comments

She welcomes this entrance, her own tongue pressed against the side of his. She coos softly as she is touched, her brushed fur getting ruffled a bit. Her own right hind leg had fallen away from his plot during that mournful moment and is now caught between his hocks. Her forehoof moves along the curvature of his back and loins.

Time to break out the "equine conformation" Wiki article. I don't mean that sarcastically, it's actually a brilliant resource to help describe horses and ponies

Mustard can feel her pear-shaped ribs beneath her coat and musculature, though they're so close he cannot effectively move his foreleg. She can feel his hoof pressing into her belly every time one of them takes a breath, and though it's not uncomfortable any attempt at movement does tickle her lightly. Her ears flick at his contact out of instinct, but he can trace along the contours of her round head. Her soft, fuzzy muzzle presses and shifts against his as their tongues continue to mingle.

Amber's left foreleg is wrapped behind his neck and she rubs her pastern along his nape and the withers. Her right, meanwhile, has partly folded up and is feeling along his shoulder, ribs, and flank. Why not take this opportunity, after all, to learn about the body of one you love so dearly?

She freezes momentarily, as if debating with herself about whether to go forward, before rubbing noses with him and nickering lustily. His hoof and shaft can both feel her very soft, very warm flesh start to slowly squirm up against him.

Pathfinder Game
Anonymous
No.154221
Alright, I've been thinking about this for a while, and I've finally decided to run a pathfinder game. Probably.
Undecided about pathfinder v1 or v2 yet, and will take suggestions. I have a copy of foundry VTT and will likely be using that. I take security seriously and would not ask any of you to make an account with discord or anything like that. Perhaps matrix, but I'll need to get a good look at foundey first before making it a hard requirement.
Because of the nature of the universe, I will allow a lot of different races. Pretty much anything pathfinder or ponyfinder, though I will still do a screening of each player character for general sanity and how to best start and introduce each to the game. Also, I want you guys to decide where you want the majority of game play to be, either Everglow, Equus(Equestria), or Earth.

/* *** */

WW2 is in full swing for America with countless war effort propaganda being handed out. USA's largest occult ring in New York decides to do something about it and gets in contact with many other cities across USA to perform a ritual that should help with the war effort. Something to end it with. A date was set for Spring in 1944, enough time so word could get out and they could prepare. What they didn't count on was just how well word-of-mouth would spread or how large of a scope this would be.

It was a week after the ritual when people started noticing things. Random things showing up in random places, most of it mundane and cleaned up without much of a second thought. Random grass clippings, dirt, sludge, water, sometimes other things like a chunk of metal... It's not like anyone had time to speculate, ask, or even mention it to anyone else, keeping the war machine fed to guarantee the survival of their family and culture.
Canada was the first country to switch from war coverage to media coverage of cars or even whole houses disappearing; or the occasional half of a house or tree seemingly perfectly cut. They were the laughing stock of the world; for a short time. Brazil started coverage of random monsters showing up with a third of the city Brasilia disappearing with a good chunk of earth underneath, being replaced by what can only be described as an extraterrestrial city. Soon after many other countries started reporting similar such things.
China went completely dark, same with Papua New Guinea, and most of the middle eastern countries.

A month after the occult ritual, the entire war stopped. For the most part, everyone went home to their respective countries to deal with infrastructure problems, if they could get home. Manufacturing, at least for the factories that could still operate, for the most part was already making products to help deal with such problems. Houses had to be reclaimed from monsters, emergency housing had to be built, and in some cases, was built for what was described as non-aggressive beings.

Some more months roll by as various countries attempt quarantine to varying degrees, with varying degrees of success. Most of the time this translated to damage control, keeping critical infrastructure going. In some of the freer places of the world, the non-aggressive extraterrestrial beings were allowed to help, as strange as it was. People working around these can pretty easily tell that the aliens were just as distraught about the events as everyone else.

Around this time, now summer of 1944, some of these people, generally those working closest to the aliens from various dimensions, started developing traits found on the aliens. Hair, skin, sometimes limbs, internal organs, or some combination. It wasn’t for another year or two before the leading theory came from the lack of magic in humans is what allowed the innate magical nature of these aliens to get absorbed by some people.

So there is what, a few pones who want to play?
I have a week of vacation scheduled starting later this week, I'll read though pathfinder 2 rules some more.

Do you guys want pathfinder 2 more than pathfinder 1?
What times can you guys play on friday or saturday? (please list in EST)
I suppose which edition of pathfinder can be decided at session 0. I also have some ideas for how to start the game in the different worlds depending on player preference.

>OP seem serious
Running a game is something I've been mentally kicking around for quite a while now, like a year or so. Mostly haven't because super busy, but my work recently hired a bunch of people and the big project I'm working on is almost done.

I should be able to run a session 0 on the 17th or 18th this month (december 2021). Depends on which day and time you guys prefer.

Youve got two statements about the moon landing, and what? Idgaf about the landings, I want you to explain what the fuck the moon is using flat earth and or dome theory.
Heres the rub. Your cutesy rhetorical 'proofs' dont measure up to a flat earth. I could conceive of the 'shard of a larger planet' theory, but the curvature of the planet is so easily proven through a variety of basic and complicated tests (and the results are repeatable and correspond to one another while operating individually), that to claim it is flat you would have to be quite ignorant, taking the piss, or you cant think rationally.
Since (you) are seemingly the only anon who gives this theory any weight Im addressing you.
Now then. You are aware that constellations are a thing, yes? Do you honestly think its some kind of projected or artifical aspect of a dome? If so, show me a astronomic chart by which you can track the movement of the constellations. If the flat earth were true, the constellations would be visible going NOT in a straight line, but would meander in order to be visible over the various areas it is claimed based on the flat earth map, and would diverge from the directional positions they are observed from.
Or, for simplicity's sake, explain the moon.
For extra credit, please use these charts to indicate when the next lunar eclipse is going to happen.
Because the funny thing about astronomical charts is you CAN accuratrly predict down to the minute (Im sure more sophisticated anons can be even more precise) when historical and future eclipses (not exclusively) will occurr.
Additionally theres this thing called tides, magnetic fields, as well as seasons, and all the rest. The thing about science is its based on findings rather than an individual's agreement with the theory for whatever reason. A scientist is tasked with trying to DISPROVE their pet theory and only after they exhaustively fail to do so do they present their findings to the critical analysis of other scientists, who then take it upon themselves to rigorously vet the experiments, the findings, and the validity of the theory.
The few videos of what has been posted that I HAVE watched are easily refuted and debunked (like the horizon laser experiment), so no Im not going to bother reading/watching everything. Back to the challenge:
Tl;dr Explain anything about the moon using flat earth models, and Ill be happy to show you how absurd those explanations are

World building is one of the most fun things when roleplaying.
>>152350 → >>321295
There is quite a bit of wold building here in various threads, but am hoping to get a good base worldbuilding thread that we can say "This is the mlpol world" to help facilitate more roleplaying.
Something that others can use as a base to launch their games from.

Do you guys want any kind of scifi in it? Or maybe some scifi hooks? Prior to Celestia and Luna, were there lots of alicorns before?
One of Luna's dream abilities is to change the physical world indirectly from dreams. When Luna visits others in their dreams, and if she is not careful, ponies tend to change.

I'm just (trying to) provide a decent backbone with shit tons of hooks without any obvious holes in it aside from the obvious hook points.
It could be Nazi purist campaign fighting against hoards of soviet russian zombies, Hitler literally gets turned into Aryanne (or something lol) and bombing kikes eventually continues, or some factory ends up in Equestria where they need to try to get back home while (you) get turned into anonfilly...
Or all sorts of other things. Nor does this preclude the use of other universes, or variations of Equestria. dungeon master's discretion, and DM's job to decide what else to add, leave out, and when/where the campaign starts.
Among the possibilities could include ponies ending up on earth, then once again get transported to some other random universe sometime later.

At the very least, existing earth population would segregate a lot more with shadow governments trying to install their puppets using newly acquired power. But such power is also randomly distributed, so there could be campaigns to stop shadow governments.

This is certainly an interesting exposition to a game. Looks like it would fit well in d20 Arcana, GURPS, savage worlds, or even adapted pathfinder.
It seems as though your goal is to have a setting that starts in WWII but can also include content from anything/anywhere: a fine endeavor, and really fun if done well. One of the perks of historical fantasy settings is that the overall real world is already developed, which lets you focus more on the fantasy aspects and how they subtly or drastically alter the course of history. In those sorts of historical settings, you'll want to be more descriptive of the minor details, so that players have a chance to immerse themselves in history.

Your setting seems to be largely fueled by chain-reaction catastrophes begun by occult rituals, so that would clearly be an important aspect of the story. You should work on developing the origins, meanings, and mechanics of magic in your world(s), in both terms of what you want to reveal to your players early on and what you want to remain a mystery or be discovered later.
>Obviously poneland would be at least one of the universes that 'gets linked' or whatever.
You can draw inspiration from countless greentexts for this. Maybe get some of our local Manosfags on board.
I couldn't help but think of Christ-chan's Merge... *shudders*

Now for points of interest:
>USA's largest occult ring in New York decides to do something
Perhaps you could tie this in to other intelligence secrets like the Manhattan Project? It would be interesting if eldritch entities from another world influenced or aided the course of human history/science. I think Savage Worlds's Weird Wars series has a lot of stuff about that. (pic related)
>gets in contact with many other cities across USA to perform a ritual
Ah, if the rituals were spread out across multiple rings, the players may have to travel to multiple locations to fully uncover their secrets. Very good hook.
>Brazil started coverage of random monsters showing up
A magically-warped Amazon rainforrest sounds like fun to explore. It could also could be interesting if ancient magical artifacts and ruins in MesoAmerica and South America suddenly activated and unleashed on the world.
>Canada was the first country to switch from war coverage to media coverage of cars or even whole houses disappearing
Day of Rake when?
>being replaced by what can only be described as an extraterrestrial city
Also a very interesting point to explore.
>It's not like anyone had time to speculate, ask, or even mention it to anyone else, keeping the war machine fed to guarantee the survival of their family and culture.
Perhaps this could have something to do with intentional suppression. Intelligence agencies were just beginning to bloom in that period. Also incidentally when Jews first took irreparable grasp of united states intelligence (see: Richie Boys).
>A month after the occult ritual, the entire war stopped. For the most part, everyone went home to their respective countries to deal with infrastructure problems, if they could get home.
Ah, this is actually a very important point of interest: it represents the point where history changes course. In this timeline, the Third Reich and Imerial Japan may still exist, which I think players in this community could have fun with. It also means that the United States may have never completely bloomed as a superpower, and the cold war never would have happened either.
>Manufacturing, at least for the factories that could still operate, for the most part was already making products to help deal with such problems. Houses had to be reclaimed from monsters, emergency housing had to be built, and in some cases, was built for what was described as non-aggressive beings.
A fusion of adaptive development with chaos-regression. I would bet some regions of the world practically went back to the stone age from the mayhem.
>In some of the freer places of the world, the non-aggressive extraterrestrial beings were allowed to help, as strange as it was.
Ah, so some of the aliens are friendly. These would make for interesting characters, and possibly even playable races. (ponies?)
However, for each race you make known to players, you might also have to develop at least part of the world that those creatures come from, unless the cataclysms somehow caused memories/history to be lost.
>some of these people, generally those working closest to the aliens from various dimensions, started developing traits found on the aliens. Hair, skin, sometimes limbs, internal organs, or some combination.
Mutants are fun. Reminds me of goblinization from Shadowrun. Mutants with similar traits could be classified as their own playable races.
>lack of magic in humans is what allowed the innate magical nature of these aliens to get absorbed by some people
Hmmmm, opposites attract, I guess.
>I'm just (trying to) provide a decent backbone with shit tons of hooks without any obvious holes in it aside from the obvious hook points.
Yeah, this much is obvious, and you definitely have a lot to work with. would certainly like to play a game in a setting written by you.

So uhhh I was a little late on the uptake of relevant stuff.
But apparently the concept and it's implementation existed for quite a while.

The important details are vastly different though. That rpg is a futurist cyber fantasy lovecraft hellscapes more or less.
Found it through something else completely unrelated, but thems the breaks.

Yeah, and one of my main reasons for picking this date, as its just a bit before D-day would have happened (summer of 1944) but still when USA was in the 'full swing' of war.
This specific timeframe has two points of inspiration, you guys (I love you mlpol :) and the world at war series by hairy turtledove. The war series is basically about lizard aliens attack earth when WW2 was in full swing with 1980's-1990's technology but much less experience, pretty interesting.
I thought it would be interesting to still have nazi germany around as an option for the dungeon master to do stuff with. Not even limited to earth either, as a campaign could be had where some amount of Germany makes it to [Everglow, Equestria, Golarion, Greyhawk, Faerun...] or almost anything else.
>A magically-warped Amazon rainforrest sounds like fun to explore. It could also could be interesting if ancient magical artifacts and ruins in MesoAmerica and South America suddenly activated and unleashed on the world.
I wasn't really thinking of that really as much as random obscure places in the world to help give a sense of scope. Although it would be interesting to see some bushwhacking adventures too, in the context of a warping amazon forest.

What I haven't really mentioned is how polarized certain people-groups would get. Quite a few I would imagine would shut down almost all outside-contact for various reasons like keeping a pure religion (more Amish-like but with modern tools equipment), or keeping their race pure. Though how much that happens is up to the dungeon master really.
The other thing I haven't done is define what things are like 20 years later. I think this was my original goal too, so the game wouldn't have to be quite as chaotic. Though at the same time, why not roleplay all that out?

>Yeah, this much is obvious, and you definitely have a lot to work with. would certainly like to play a game in a setting written by you.
I've been told by the several people I've done play-by-post roleplay with, that I'm exceptional to RP with. I have a lot of fun defining characters and building worlds in a realistic way given a premise. Never been a dungeon master though. I suspect I would have fun at least trying it, certainly played pathfinder long enough to have a really good idea for how.

Sometime I imagine in a pony-inspired pathfinder setting, the Mane 6 represent sovereign archetypes with the equivalence of deities, similar to Eberron sovereign archetypes. I think Ponyfinder/Everglow just straight up makes them gods.

My idea was to associate each element of harmony with a specific idol (mane six member/goddess/champion), and a star/planetoid or other celestial body in the night sky. They'd also be associated with a day of the week where that star shines brightest in the sky. Celestia would get Sunday and Luna would get Monday, the nights when all six stars shine brightest. The mane 5 would each get a day of the week (Pinkie would get Saturday, for example), while Twilight gets no day of the week since her star is brightest in twilight of each day. The stars would also represent a major source of arcane magic in the setting, like with Dragonlance. I wanted astronomy to be a big part of unicorn culture for that purpose.

That way, the sovereign archetype represent core aspects of daily life, and each has a day of the week where those aspects are celebrated/observed. Pinkie, for example, would be based on the Roman Saturn's Day Sabbath: a time of feast and fun.

For evil aspects of divinity, I thought of perhaps making an antithesis aspect of each element of harmony, which represents inverted or twisted ideals. I thought perhaps that those could be represented by another cosmological event, perhaps when those stars are eclipsed by a certain dark moonlet (more on that later).
Also there could be references to characters like Discord, Tirek, Doom-Faust, Grogar or other wicked aspects that could be sources of evil magic.

MP stands for magical Points. Unlike other games, the world of Equestria obeys the single rule -friendship is magic. You don't regain your MP by relying on resting or items. You regain Magical points by spending time with your party members and putting your trust in them. Talking to them and earning your place in their hearts. Friendhip converts to magic, which by itself is converted to MP.

TP stands for Technical points and does not require anything but your anger to get the fighting through.

Maybe I should do a world-building thread for pony RPGs. I've never done a pony game or a west marches before, so it should be worth it to brainstorm with the people who actually might play it.

I'm starting a D&D 2e game soon. It's Dark Sun.
I've never played 2e before. Does anybody have advice on what's a good starting place?

New 5e UA came out. Looks like the next release is going to be Spelljammer. The UA had a bunch of races.
Worth a thread, or nah?

A bunch of users wanted a run down of magick and thoughtforms and all that jazz. I figure I'll do large post explaining the practical basics of everything. This thread is going to be a general for magick, a place to chat with people also practicing and finding practical advice. This article will be from a baseline bare skeleton pov. There's literally an infinite amount of ways to do magic. So we're going to talk about the core.

My base was a mix of psionics and chaos magick, broke into impromptu sympathetic magick. Took a break after a heavy loss. But I've since restarted by dabbling in evocation. WTF does that mean? It means I made thought forms and egregores, then started using sigils, then started doing voodoo stuff with random objects within reach, then took a break, and now I summon demons and mlp ponies. WTF does that mean? Read and find out.

What is Magick? Lets Plow Through This...

Magick is a methodology of imposing your will on reality to cause changes within it by utilizing an inherent power. The mechanisms remain the same. Even though there are 6 gorrilion types of magick.

Law of attraction, chaos magick, planetary magick, voodoo, wicca, hermetics, devil worship, psionics, pop culture magick, sigil, candle, shamanism, magick of solomon. On and on with the hidden fringe magicks. You could literally read every waking hour for the rest of your life and never run out of information.

By far the most popular is Kabbalistic Magick. The secret jew magick taught in synagogue to true believers. Why do you think all the celebrities are fucking Kabbalah practitioners? Why the fuck do you think the jews control everything?

Hell there's even a dark reflection to Kabbalah. Kabbalah uses the tree of life, while this other art uses it's opposition, the Qliphothic Tree of Death. If you really wanted to stick it to the jews, learn that shit. Its heavily demonic and overkill esoterically edgelord. But do it in your own time.

There are two paths of magick, high and low. High is basically self improvement, purifying your soul and reaching for godliness, low is making fat bank and banging sloots .... err earthly desires. Regardless of your path, both are exercising your soul's ability of creation (even if it's destruction). You are commanding and creating a new reality. You are assuming some of your power and becoming one with “God”.

It's scripted speech, they want (((art))) directly implanted in your brain. The augmented reality is just the flashy attention grabbing distraction. They want and need to control you in everything. The neural implant once wide spread they hope will be channeled to invoke and evoke their magics, philosophy, control and evil on the world through people.
>A reminder that we don't need the beings in the spiritual realm, but they do need us to feed on us.
That is true. There are also those that are like us as well who's existence simply is.
Those in the spiritual realms can be our allies and friends, or merely contractual dealings or even hostile idiots.
By that same token the simplification and reduction ignores many parts of the whole. You can do that, it works. The way in which you could go about doing things changes as more options and avenues increase.

Does the wording of a spell matter? A lot of guides on the internet absolutely insist that the wording be in the present tense, as if it is already done. But OP's posts imply otherwise.

>Does the wording of a spell matter?
Depends. Different desires necessitate correct grammar for the appropriate evocation, so long as the will is proclaimed alongside fluent language and the tools are at hand, then your intent shall be manifest. If you have the power to do so.

Has anyone heard anything about any kind of magic/prayer/esp/ritual/spirit to remove/mitigate stupidity, incompetence or error?
I haven't.
The closest thing I've heard is increasing other possible attributes, luck and changing of mindsets.

The way I think about it stupidity and incompetence is just a lack of intelligence and common sense. So increasing the latter reduces the former.

Generally, people who are clinically dumb think they're actually smart.

Since that doesn't seem to be the case, I suggest you look more on the nutritional or body-health side of things. Rule out the physical before you decide it's a spiritual problem.

That said. short answer would be cardio. Walking, jump rope, machines if you have it. increased blood flow helps your brain and staves off diabetes which is something that can really make you feel and act stupid.

Don't forget inferior ripoffs of anime characters
Especially boring one-note ones that are only funny or interesting thanks to interactions with other characters
Drizzt doourden ripoffs probably carpool with Roranoa Zoro ripoffs
Also that one troon who insists on being the girl he sees himself as
and that one furfag who insists on being his fursona
and that fag who insists on slowing the pace of the adventure down for his character's Illumination Movie-tier character arc where he learns friendship really is magic or something

Often some variantion of edgelord or snowflake.
>Also that one troon who insists on being the girl he sees himself as
Also snowflake.
That's also better than the troon who plays a troon in-character just to remind everyone that he's a fucking troon.
>Furfag
Snowflake again.
>Last one
Still snowflake.
