??? You do recall that Terris: Wrought of Copper doesn't fit the "thing and thing" format?
Yes I do. I couldn't think of any "x of metal" which fit the Nobles however.

Not sure if this deserves its own thread or not, but I figure if it does it can get spun off later...

Marvel's Jessica Jones has been released to Netflix! I'm only 2 episodes in, but so far I'm liking it.

So, there was some question as to whether or not Luke Cage would have his powers or not in this series, episode 1 hints that he does, episode 2 makes it damn obvious that he does, complete with a nice demonstration via rotary saw. I wonder if he buys saw blades in bulk just to do that demo...

Largely because of similarities in the myths in which the Rakshasa and the Oni are found; hence tweaking Fire Brave seemed pretty appropriate.

There is a mechanical flaw to the Jungle Brave as built, though - there's very little point in one claw attack on top of a bite attack, since the bite attack will always be better. Probably what I should have done was find a way to get two claw attacks in there, which would allow for flurries.
Mistborn Adventure Game / MAG: Cardstock Miniatures
« Last post by Herowannabe on November 20, 2015, 11:19:25 PM »
So I don't know if anyone else will get excited about this, but I decided I wanted some miniatures for playing MAG in real life. Describing roughly where every character in the room is in relation to every other character can be tedious and confusing- it's so much better if you can drop a couple miniatures on the table so that everyone has a visual idea of where everything is. And since we're not about to get some plastic or pewter Mistborn mini's any time soon (though a part of me will always mourn that I wasn't around for these.  :'(), I got this idea into my head and ended up making a template for these:

This is just the first batch, focusing on the heroes of the novels and the playable characters from the MAG. I will be doing more soon, including guards, soldiers, Koloss and mist wraiths (to scale!), all using artwork from the MAG and its supplements (speaking of which, this is a good time to mention that all of the artwork is copyrighted to its original owners- I hope I'm not breaking any rules by making these minis or by posting this online for others to do the same).

Making them is easy. Just cut out each mini and fold them like so:

then glue or tape the two tabs together to form a triangle.

Ta da!

Without any further ado, here is the link to the google doc I am making these in. Just print and cut and enjoy!

Oh and if anyone has any specific requests for images they would like miniaturified, just let me know.

I like Obligators: Eyes of Steel and Nobles: Brazen as Brass myself. :D

Oh god I am so, so old.  :-[
No, no you aren't....

The Auld Grump <- started playing Dungeons & Dragons in 1976....

Hey, hey, stop trying to make it about you, this is about me  ;)

Actually, we should probably steer this conversation back to the industries most successful attempt at a pirate genre RPG (that was completely forgotten by its owners in the rush to embrace Teh D20 Money.)* Let's return to baseless, paranoid speculation driven by rose-colored nostalgia.

*None of the facts purported  in this sentence have been verified or vetted.  We are punk rock like that.  >:D

I agree with SirJerric, I think it will be two separate supplements. "Nobility: Politics and Atium" is my prediction for the name of the Nobles supplement. (I was going to say "Nobility: Atium and Balls," but that can be taken the wrong way FAR too easily...  ::))

As for the Steel Ministry supplement name... "The Ministry: Steel and Blood" maybe? Or maybe just "The Steel Ministry." Has a nice enough ring to it, even it doesn't follow the "Name: Thing and Thing" format.

Then I suppose I just need to wait...for...Spellbound...:-[  I'm getting the feeling that this is going to be recurring theme.

For the cleric:
- I made a homebrew Ogre species feat for Rakshasas that you might find handy.
- Also a spell conversion feat that allows conversion of non-personal to personal spells.
However, there are alternative solutions to this.
Consider a minor campaign property that allows all healing spells to also have a range option of person.
Or a spellcasting feat to mimic both allowing yourself to be the target of healing spells and the channeling of positive energy as per TOG would be easy to homebrew, for either Mage or Priest casting.
These are great, I really like it. I'm thinking I'd use/make a campaign quality to allow for self-healing and that plus the devotion chain SHOULD be enough to convince the Cleric to be a Priest. Interesting that you used Ogre as a basis for Rakshasa, any particular reason for that?

Thanks for the activation. I've added my intro post, so now I just need to figure out how that forum is organized and where to post about what.

I'd thought that the workings of the Steel Ministry were going to be a separate supplement.

I'd like to get more information on the Hazekiller culture, and some information on how new houses are formed and where ever else that younger sons have to go to make places for themselves in the Empire.
