of course most /pol/tards side with caser's legion but looking at it almost every single faction is awful one way or the other, The NCR is literally a reboot of America that is in the middle of a manifest destiny, House is a egotistical maniac and probably appeals to Musk bros and Yes man is just a libertarian wet dream

>As a child his parents were members of the Great Khans living in Bitter Springs. His father was a sadistic murderer with an alcohol problem who used to take Bitter-Root out shooting members of the NCR, military personnel and civilians alike, since the age of three, later laughing with his fellow drug addicts about the killings. Bitter-Root's mother was an insipid person whose only useful quality to the group seemed to be her being, to quote Bitter-Root's father, "a smokin' hot piece of ass," attempting unsuccessfully to sell her son into slavery on numerous occasions in exchange for jet. He loathed his parents and the upbringing he received.[6]

>"Today, we rise again as one nation, in the face of betrayal and corruption! We all trusted this man to deliver our great nation into a new era of prosperity. But like our monarchy before the Revolution, he has been colluding with the West with only self-interest at heart! Collusion breeds slavery! And we shall not be enslaved! The time has come to show our true strength. They underestimate our resolve. Let us show that we do not fear them. As one people, we shall free our brethren from the yoke of foreign oppression! Our armies are strong, and our cause is just. As I speak, our armies are nearing their objectives, by which we will restore the independence of a once-great nation. Our noble crusade has begun. Just as they lay waste to our country, we shall lay waste to theirs. This is how it begins."

>"Democracy? Democracy. Democracy is not what these people need, hell, it's not even what they want. America has been trying to install democracies in nations for a century and it hasn't worked one time. These countries don't have the most basic building blocks to support a democracy. Little things like, "We ought to be tolerant of those that disagree with us." "We ought to be tolerant of those who worship a different god than us!" That, "A journalist ought to be able to disagree with the president!" And you think you can just march into these countries - based on some fundamentalist, religious principles - drop a few bombs, topple a dictator and start a democracy? Huh. Give me a break. People don't want freedom. They want boundaries and rules… Protection… From invaders, and from themselves. People need a leader who can give them both the support and constraints to keep chaos at bay. You give them that, and they'll follow. And that's where I come in."

Thoughts on Automata?
I'm going to replay it soon in order to write an effortpost on it relating the philosophical themes and dialogue together.
I grew up playing Drakengard and never really got it until I replayed it as an adult, and realized the disconnect between the story and gameplay was the whole point. I got bored of hacking and slashing through hordes of enemies which had no connection to the story, but I realized that the mass murder I comitted was the whole point of the game. To make the player question who is really the good guy in the context of the game. Nier, the original, plays on this more.
Automata presents this idea at the beginning with Pascal and the robot village, instead of hiding a plot twist later into the game.

The Second World War’s hardest fighting was on the Eastern Front of Europe.

No Step Back is the newest expansion for Hearts of Iron IV, Paradox Interactive’s grand strategy wargame about the world crisis of the 1930s and World War II. This expansion adds greater detail for many nations in Eastern Europe, unique game systems to reflect Soviet politics, and many improvements to the military aspect of the game.

I think the thing TNO Germany is missing the most is an actual Goering path. Right now we got:
>Borman, the Joe Biden of Hitlerism
>Speer, the 12yo werhaboo smart nazi wet dream
>Heydrich, the wacky nazi
>"Goering" aka Schroner, the schizo fantasyland militarist
What is missing here is a proper selfishly pragmatic, ideologically dead centrist path. A path where all the pretences of Nazism are dropped and only half-assedly kept up by waning propaganda machine, the country instead becoming a despotist oligarchy of a bunch of bureaucrats, porkies and wermacht top brass who just want to keep the ship stable for their own good. It would include some half-assed reforms and tone down nazi schizo shit so long as it benefits the state. All of this would obviously be lead by a fuhrer who is both smart enough to know how to unite all the previously mentioned groups around their selfish class interest, and also be able to play up the role of a loved strong man for the public, aka Goering. In short, I want Goering to be reimagined as German Putin. The main benefit, in my opinion, to this is that it would actually give Nazi Germany a probable path that isn't straight up collapse after 10 years. Because Borman's Germany shits the bed completely by the end, and Fascist Speer is a fluke event.

What kinda kills the mod for me is that by the way that they are portrayed, you realize that both Japan and the Nazies are paper fucking tigers that are almost certain to fall over with no external help. Hence for one I find all the pearlclutching about Hall / McGovern (the based and the blessed US outcomes) how they "will destroy le free world by submiting to da nadziez if they weaken muh OFN/CIA !!1!" to be ridiculous, as come 2nd decade, Germany and Japan are a fucking joke ready to tumble over. Also, thus the only interesting parts for me are the ones that aren't really related to Japan or Germany, unless its some sort of epic struggle for liberation like Long Yun or whatever Europas Narben Eastern Europe will be. Instead its the OFN, as well as the unaligned nations + developing world which are really interesting to me, like an economically prosperous Iberian superstate, red Italy that wins against all odds and basically changes all history as we know it, South America developing to first world standarts due to US being busy and so on.

>as come 2nd decade, Germany and Japan are a fucking joke ready to tumble over

Well that depends what path they take, most Speer routes seem primed for economic success (more or less), and assuming Japan doesn't go nightmare mode, their economic fundamentals are also pretty good (though they would likely have to relinquish direct control of most of their colonies)

 No.14153

honestly out of all the powers japan has the most chance of succes

because one idk if its realistic that speer would take over in the power struggle and go FULL ON DENGIST

meanwhile imperial japan which historically had stable colonies also has the whole shit where in our timeline miti(which was a forme rfascist organization)causing japans "economic miracle",

and well if we consider this factor in regarding if japan wil be succesful or not well

>destroy massive amounts of land for your agragarian revolution
<implying there are no better agricultural methods
i just make small crop greenhouses here and there like for some bread and stuff

i can probably make a better farm in large bodies of water and such, plains are not bad either, no need to fuck up like big places if you can just pick a suitable place for agriculture and just put a train to take you there every harvest moon and just sleep in a cabin nearby
Then the same train can transport the produce way faster than any other vehicle would

>ruthlessly slaughter through hordes of native inhabitants and forcefully take their resources and exploit villagers for their labour to produce even more material wealth

I- I don't know about that because tbh Minecraft lore regarding villagers and pillagers is kinda vague
you can tell they're the same "race" or whatever
then again i used to play with this mod which was better called "Minecraft Comes Alive" which hasn't been updated in 3 years, so there's that
i remember Notch saying something related to Villagers being Jews or something like that (though i think that was just a rumor)
(though, tough they have big noses and golems, so… yeah)
part of me doesn't care but another part of me thinks Villagers could use a rework like zombie pigs did, just so they can be more consistent i guess, i'm not saying i hate villagers because they look like jews or because i hate their "race"
i just hate them because they're the least friendly mob in the fucking game, their whole mechanics are being xenophobes to the only other humanoid entity in the whole overworld
piglins are way more friendly and charismatic

either way i usually just steal their beds and shit
no regrets, they're pieces of shit anyway

How would they be the good guys? All they do is kill people for no apparent purpose. The villagers aren't harming anyone. They can't even do very much without the player's help.

Hey guys, I wanna play TTRPG, I've never really played more than a few one off sessions here and there, I was also a DM for some people for a few months but I couldn't deal with the stress.

Anyway, where's the best place I should look for a game (online)? It all seems so intimidating.

I've never been the best at social stuff. Also it would help if the game is furry friendly.

Any other DM's lurking around? /tg/ is barely usable nowadays and it'd be cool to see what other /leftypol/ anons are running/working on.

Here's a screenshot from the OSR-style sandbox campaign I've been running using a niche D&D retroclone system I've made some additions to over the year. Originally I just whipped up a simple, medieval feudal setting with various fantasy/mutated animal races (so mixed in with humans and elves are froglings, sparrowlings, cricketlings, etc because fuck it why not) to drop a couple of modules I enjoyed into and by now I've spent way too much time drawing maps, organizing my notes, and homebrewing a bunch of new stuff.

We're about ten sessions in now and the party after successfully clearing out the starter dungeon I started them off in, have now gotten themselves entangled in the whims of the local Duke who has sent them to grave rob the tomb of his long-dead ancestor for an ancient amulet. I was a bit nervous because this was the first dungeon I've made up from scratch, but the players had a blast hacking their way through undead and sneaking around. They're not super far into it yet, but they've discovered the remains of a previous adventuring party and have heard Ghouls prowling around in the darkness, so they're thoroughly spooked and I'm pretty satisfied with the progress they're making.

anybody who bemoans the unusability should get a "lol fuck off to /leftypol/ you commie queer" or something. Give them a little extra mean kick to encourage them to give up 4chan for good (and for their own good). May not be as effective as it was on 8chan.

>>14115
I've DMed before but not running anything currently. In a game that's been on pause for a while with some IRL friends. I've been working on a bottom-up home brew system cobbling together mechanics I like from various sources but it's nowhere near playtesting yet (haven't worked out the flow of attack/defense completely because I'm doing something pretty unusual with dice mechanics). It's something I pick up from time to time.

>by now I've spent way too much time drawing maps, organizing my notes, and homebrewing a bunch of new stuff.

Publish it. You already did the hard stuff and it might make you a little extra money and give people cool resources.

You don't play them on an imageboard. You do it elsewhere and put a link or something on the board. There's a matrix room for /games/. Something like that would be more useful to set up a game or to play. You can play by post without much trouble as long as nobody spams and you can identify people, but imageboards aren't ideal for that.
