This is happening guys. This is FUCKING happening. Lets start things off with some classes and basic world building.Its time to get shit done /tg/>post that started it all >>24425730
>>24426769Reposting from previous thread:You see, when the gods of metal clustered around, they each made their own race in the echo of their own mighty voice.Thrash, the god of the Orcs, made his race violent, brutal, and agressive. The ultimate warrior race.Glam, the god of the Elves made his race one of unity, with many powerful harmonies and ballads of power.Humanity, it is said, was formed where the gods voices met. Not made by any one deity, but with a little of each of their mighty powers. They are a race of metal, but not of any single theme.The twin gods Black and Death, watching their fellow Gods of Metal shape the many races which would inhabit the world, grew jealous.Working together, they shaped not a single glorious race like the others, but a thousand nightmares given monstrous form. The demons of metal were given screaming voices, and iron claws, with which to take the birthrights of the mortal races
>>24426843more from last threadThe twin gods Black and Death, watching their fellow Gods of Rock shape the many races which would inhabit the world, grew jealous.Working together, they shaped not a single glorious race like the others, but a thousand nightmares given monstrous form. The demons of metal were given screaming voices, and iron claws, with which to take the birthrights of the mortal races.
Godspeed, OPFor reference, here's two other seetings based on a similar ideahttp://1d4chan.org/wiki/Setting:Hail_and_Killhttp://1d4chan.org/wiki/Heavy_mythril
>>24426843We need the other races too
>>24426769OP here, Im looking foreward too this, i havent done anything on /tg/ since boris the titan and the scraplootasClasses from last thread>Lead Guirat(mage)>Vocals(party face)>Drummer(Tank)>Bass(support)I'm thinking riffs and sheet music could be analogous to spells and scrolls for the Guitarist
>>24426769There is one, grand, terrible evil in the setting. There are many who preach violence, or cruelty, but they do not do so without cause for it is their nature, or their culture, or perhaps even a necessary aspect of the world.No, the greatest threat to this world of metal, music and creation itself is called The Rest.The Rest is a pause in the music; not without it's place in the great sublime chord progression that is the cosmos, but there is a hunger to that stifling moment of quiet that would seek to take us all one day, if ever the hearts of mortals and gods should falter in the pursuit of beauty, glory and noise.
So...We're making Brutal Legend, the RPG?YEAH!
The Gods of Metal Create the World.In the beginning the world was silent and without form. The Gods of Metal declared this would end, and so created the foundations of the world.Groove, god of the earth, raised the mighty mountains and carved out deep valleys.Folk, goddess of life, filled the valleys with plants and animals, and sent rivers coursing down mountainsides.Hardcore, god of war, laid metals deep within the earth to be made into weapons and armour.Glam, goddess of light, lit up the world with countless stars, shining and gleaming in the night.Thrash, god of fire, looked at Glam's work, and exceeded her, as he created the sun, to provide day for all the peoples of the world.The twin gods of darkness carved out realms beneath the surface, for they wished to remain underground. But they filled their realms with poisons and magma, bones and dust.
>>24427066>>24426858>>24426843>>24427173>To set the mood https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iKuVKcS3O2QOk, so we have a creation myth, classes, and now the settings boogeymen. Fluffy as shit, but an RPG needs some crunchy bits. Stats anyone?
>>24427239Noise? - how loud they could beSoul - how well their music connects with the audiences hearts????
>>24427173Punk The god of the goblins was jealous of Thrash and his giants of war and so he made his race just as violent and brutal, trading strength and aggression with guile and ingenuity.
>>24427341Beat-speed (rounds not movement)
>>24427436endurance as well for how long they can sustain the hyped up period?
>>24427386Nice.I kind of figure every setting needs dragons. So what if the dragons represent classic metal, before it got separated into all the different genres?
>>24427341Love/Hate - a sliding scale that indicates the character's disposition toward destructive or sappy musicoh wait... this isn't the alignment thread....
>>24427341hmmm, i think you may be onto something. It would be interesting to see how we could make concept interact with spells and skills.>>24427424>>24427436I think thats going in the right direction, it could be a stat that doubles as both DEX and how fast you can play
>>24427503If it's your speed, then I'd say tempo. If it's rounds, like combat, I'd say measures.
>>24427469(Re)verb.How long you can sustain effects, your constitution or stamina equivilent.
>>24427436tempo determines beats per measure Beats-actions per measureMeasure-round
>>24427239Rhythem: The precision stat, needed to accurately keep to the beat. Drummers must have this.Harmony: one's sense of the flows around them, and the ability to move with them. Social stat.Theory: Comprehension of the complex and arcane aspects of sound, pitch, tone and the relationships between them all. Intellectual stat.Experience: The memory stat, often had in great excess by older, wiser musicians who have acquired vast memorized archives of songs and stories to play.
>>24427503could be that a person with a lot of soul/feels/whatever you call it can make the audience feel the music better, i guess making it equivalent to the caster level in D&DNoise could be the number of squares it can effect, the closer you are to the source the more soul maybe?>>24427555i think that is a pretty nifty name for combat rounds
>>24427499 Grueling Sappy Shredding Sappy Rocking Sappy Grueling Mellow Shredding Normal Rocking Normal Grueling Harsh Shredding Harsh Rocking Harsh
>>24427503Expanding on the "Speed/tampo" idea, why not have a stat set that doubles as both you're physical stats and musical talents.keeping the standard DEX, CON, INT,and CHA mechanic as a base but adding a unique secondary application.
>>24427478HEAVY the old one, the god of the great flying beasts, the dragons. The dragons existed in the beginning before the great sundering, and before the silence. Great and terrible. Some say that they still walk amongst the mortals, as kings and heroes of the highest purity.
So, how about nicking Fire Tributes from Brutal Legend for EXP/whatever?Do something impressive, you get a tribute, you can spend it on becoming better.
>>24427652speaking of>POWER. Doubles as as both STR and how FACE MELTY you can play
>>24427628 Meant 'Grueling Normal' there in the 2nd row.Couldn't decide between Mellow and Normal.
>Get inspired as fuck about this>Google "hevi" which is a Finnish abbrevation of Heavy Metal>Lament over how crappy the images are>Fucking Hevi-juice, Fucking Ari Koivunen, Fucking Hevisaurus
>>24427680I think Mellow works better.
So basically, Brutal Legend PnP
>>24427668"groupies" for exp, after you have enough groupies you gain a fame level, allowing you access to better "stages" and "gear". but the "groupies" have to be earned via "sets" and cant be purchased. because that shit is fucking wack.
Would playing guitar and dinging be considered dual classing?
>>24427711Well yeah, the post that started it all used an image from that.
Oh i have an idea, lets add fate points. As you do awesome stuff the GM can award points you can spend on rerolls or improving you characters skills in a pinch like the wild talents will mechanic.
>>24427652no Power is the god of giants, Giving his race strength and size beyond reason.
>>24427738Yes and you need a high "soul" to be able to do both without fucking up.
>>24427478Dragons are both the Old school and potentially the New school. They have been around so long as to have seen the rise and fall of entire genres, often knowing of musical ideas centuries or milenia past. Their long necks have hundreds of vocal chords; rather than a breath weapon of fire, their shouts are symphonies of harmony and dissonance in complexity honed over their life-times, and their songs would require a full symphony to replicate. Name them after famous composers.The young dragon of the New school is masquerading as a savant composer Half-elf, calling simply himself Danny Elf-Man.
>>24426843Minor, minor grief with the sentence "Glam, the god of the Elves made his race one of unity, with many powerful harmonies and ballads of power." you shouldn't have "powerful" and "power" in such close proximity. It's not very phonetically pleasing and this part needs to be perfect since it will serve as the intro. I would rewrite it as "Glam, the god of the Elves made his race one of unity, with many eloquent harmonies and ballads of power."Dwarves should be either Industrial, Power, or Folk. Or maybe they're non playable and are these like mythical beings of pure metal.
>>24427762I would also say high (int replacement) and (dex replacement) for the ability to multi-taskThe soul would mostly be so you "know" guitar and singing
Eventually, the twin gods Doom and Death turned upon one another, each coveting the other's power.In the end, Doom cleaved Death in two, and seized control of the underworld.Death lay broken for an age, utterly still, but she was Death, and so could not die. In fact, as she lay there, and as mortals paid her tribute, she changed and twisted. Becoming a mockery of herself, creating UnDeath, who led an army of corpses to wage war.
>>24427748I figured songs about dragons were usually associated with power metal bands.
>>24427791Good point on that, thanks.And I figured dwarves would follow Groove. I mean, look at Pantera.
>>24427784Orchestra to replicate. Sorry.
Just a idea, but i would say that dragons, if they are supposed to have an insane vocal range, should be able to imitate any instrument
Where are the bondage nuns?
>>24427826maybe. Dwarves are hard for me to imagine because I can't get the image of Gimli singing softly of the days of Durin out of my head
The warring between Black, Doom, and Death wrecked havoc on the denizens of the darkness. Combat would scar the underside of the world, and new children would rise from it. These children, forged in thunder and fury, would come to be lead by the Dark Prophet EXTREMOS. Soon too would their blood spilt on the walls of the shadowed lands.
>>24427784>>24427829>their songs would require a full orchestra to replicate.>Name them after famous composers.I know we're talking about metal, but I couldn't help but imagine cosmic dragon Holst.
>>24427814Yeah but i was basing it on dragons being the forefront >>24427478Like this guy said, before there were thousand of kinds of metal there was just "heavy" metal
>>24427889Created by Death and Black to seduce the pure hearts of the mortals.
>>24427762Speaking of. Time for stats.>SoulYour charisma stat. Determines how well your music connects with the crowd.>TempoYour dexterity stat. Determines the speed with which you can shred.>PowerYour strength stat. Determines how hard you can shred>TheoryYour Intelligence stat. Determines your comrehension of how the different elements of music interact and general quality of composition.sound good? any suggestions?>>24427784fucking awesome
>>24427919Ahh, I see. Carry on then.
>>24427797that makes sence, also Vocals is the only multiclass avalible.
>>24427963Unless someone specializes in Folk or Symphonic, in which case they may know how to play any number of instruments.Hell, they could be a Keymaster and multi into Vocals.
>>24427939i dont know how i feel about theory, it doesnt feel metal but i cant think of anything else to call it.>>24427791fuck yeah nonplayable dwarves. being the equivalent of angels and low deific beings
>>24427991i meant more in the dual wielding sense, you can sing and drum or sing and guitar but you cant guitar and drum unless you have a special exotic instrument and have high penalties.
Is this going to be archived? i would like this to be archived.
>>24428016In which case, agreed.
The Elves, as followers of Glam, ride unicorns into battle (Glam created the Unicorns, calling them "fuckin' awesome"), while wearing gem-studded armour, and plumes nearly as big as their hair.
I want to know where Tool, Opeth, and Dream Theater would fit into this. And even more so, what were bands like Led Zeppelin and King Crimson? Would they be the heroes in their cultural legends?
>>24428031Everything gets archived now, get with the times.
>>24427994Yeah. Dwarves are the Roadies of the Gods. In the background, doing all the things the gods need doing. Making divine instruments, building mighty stages.
>>24427938I don't care about my soul! I want to see the fucking BONDAGE NUNS!
>>24427994Nah it fits pretty well. A lot of these guitarists are actually music geniuses that have been learning music theory since like age 6 in Scandinavia and were little piano prodigies and shit. Its pretty funny actually.
>>24428055im not sure about actual bands this being a fantasy relm but theres no doubt that they would be easter egged in.also each band (party) needs a name.
>>24428101another lost to dark gods
>>24427826Anymore race ideas?>Death Metal: Undead >Thrash Metal: Chaos >Industrial Metal: Androids>Symphonic Metal: Psychics?>Folk Metal: Halflings?>Speed Metal: Catfolk?>Experimental Metal: ????
>>24428121i know it IS metal but it doesnt SOUND metal, like in almost famous, he didnt train his voice he just ate a shit ton of pussy
>>24428150Experimental Metal: Gnomes or Half-races
>>24428097This. I like this, It seems so fitting for dwarves.>>24428150I think industrial fits better for Dwarves, and we have etstablished thrash as Orks
>>24428150Thrash is orcGlam is elfPunk is goblinPower is giantMETAL is dragonDeath and Black is undead and monsters and evil shitExperimental should be gnomesSymphonic could be psychicsFolk definatly halflings
>>24428123I meant their style of music. Progressive Metal. It's very much based on theory for all of the players involved. I mean, are all of the players just ultra powerful wizards then, even if the guitarist is the only actual wizard? And what would a keyboardist be if he isn't the wizard?
>>24428153Count off.Everyone knows counting is the most direct form of intelligence, and everyone knows that you start with one, two, a one two three four.
>>24428201that would have to be on the players to come up with new styles.>>24428204more like BeastieBoysCore
>>24428224fuck yeah, thats metal.
>>24426769My interest is piqued.
>>24428150Doom Metal: Demons/Devils of some kindStoner Metal: Fey
>>24428263Or constructs on Stoner Metal. Golems and shit.
>>24428201Just saying, the only race I can think of that makes me think of progressive metal would be sphinxes, and I'm not sure if you'd want them while dragons represent METAL. They might not be as powerful, but I don't know if they should represent an offshoot of metal. Maybe someone else knows of a race to fit them in?
>>24428201Keyboard is sorcerer, Guitar is wizard. As for the rest, well they would have awesome shit they could pull, but nothing as awesome as the guitarist, nor as diverse.I'll think up a magic system for the Guitarist later to make it stand out fromt eh other classes
Plot idea: the entire album.
>>24428277Progressive metal: Changlings?Are Death, Doom, and Black just Gods, or are there evil, good, and neutral Gods?
>>24428277Not every kind of metal needs its own race, that would be too complicated anyway. Genras that dont quite fit a specific fantasy race or are hard to pin down can fall under a subset of human culture, as they are the setting jack of all trades
>>24428278vocals is party faceGuitar is mageDrummer is tankBass is supportkey would be support mage, like a bard
>>24428335Death Doom and Black are evilThe rest are goodMETAL is neutral
>>24428339bass is support mage as is,and i had the idea of keys being sorc to the guitarists wizard. but i can easily see keys and bass being bard and cleric
>>24428315> In the twilight of mankind, groups of mercenaries, collectively known as warp riders ply the spacelanes in ships whose FTL capabilities are millenia old and guided by drug fueled ritualistic orgies and other nonsense. A group of these mercenaries led by the Captain stumbles across an ancient arms cache containing powerful mechanical warriors. The emergence of these gods of war causes the remaining semblances of civilisation to rise up to try and once again bury these abominations, but the Lady has other plans.
>>24428339Keyboard gives more musical support while bass has a number of out of combat skills. Like repairing equipment.Drummer has least musical powers but usually has best physical stats.
>>24428370yeah bass is like the cleric or warlordkeys are kinda like the bard
Shakespear wrote "All the world's a stage".What if it were true?The land is a continent surrounded by a mighty sea writing and covered in waves.To the north lie the mighty rigging mountains, the rolling plains of the center, spotted with pyrotechical volcanos.
>>24428060Where can i find it?
>>24428153Nah dude, let me set the scene. After an encounter with a trio of undead bassists, our intrepid party of shredders and fiends finds themselves trapped by a magic door, sealed by an ancient riddle. Torid of Blackhole: Gah my drums of might cant force this door down!Phantasma the Elf:Calm yourself! This riddle require a more mellifluous response. Stand back as I examen the the door.Torid of Blackhole: Prissy elf hurry on. I don't know if these bassists will stay dead for long.Phantasma the Elf:Ah I see, an E scale with a few minor deviations seems to be the solution."plays a rapid projections of light notes at the base of his masterwork flying v as glitter sparkles from his glorious permed elven locks of ivory.
>>24428446http://archive.foolz.us/tg/thread/24426769/#24426769that's the foolz link, it doesn't save images. Someone might also manually archive it on suptg
>>24428224i dont know. it certainly sounds more metal, but it doesnt really comunicate the function as well. when i see "theory" it implies thought, thinking, intelligence, ect. when i see "count off" i dont really get anything from it, just one-two-three-four. It makes sense when explained, but stats have to be clear in all aspects including upon first glance
>>24428465So atributes areSoulTempoPowerTheoryno 5th and 6th?
>>24428513>>24428502you guys are good people thanks, ima be on /tg/ a lot more hopefully
>>24427784new school dragonbreathweapon: DubStepWUBWUBWUBWUBWUBWUBWUBWUBWUBWUBWUBWUBEEEEEEEEEEEEOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
>>24428517Well of course just 4. Everyone knows 4/4 is the most metal of schemes.
>>24428465that does sound pretty fucking metal man...
>>24428517Technique could be a dex attribute
>>24428200Seconding halflings for folk. Let's combine my 2 favourite things
>>24428516True enough. I was just throwing it out there.I still think Reverb would make a good stamina stand in.
>>24428101for the dark gods!!!
>>24428560I have to admit, when I was writing the earlier piece with folk, I was thinking of Halflings.
Techno the godforge created the tecnoforged large golem like beings made of metal and rock but with the souls of mortals.
>>24428578reverb is a good one for stamina, determins how many beats or measures a certain effect lasts.
>>24428517You can add Funk. Because having the funk is different then those. Funk is funk. Rarely taken stat Performance. How showing you can be. Think of it as the charisma of D&D. With enough showmanship you don't need musical talent
>>24428614There a little men underground, they don't care about their sins. They just wanna get drunk and party
Bassists would be masters of stealth. A novice bass would be difficult to pin down exactly, though you can immediately tell he's there. A master would be detectible only by the hollow silence of their absence. From the shadows they provide immeasurable support to their allies, laying a solid foundation for the leads to build on.
LETS NAME SOME GODS OF METAL! I vote Eddie!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h8IuFl3sMhk
>>24428415Drummer is barbarian/fighter then?
>>24428578I think it would too, but for simplicitys sake, its just the 4 stats for now, as POWER can be used in its place effectively.Although Reverb might be a cool mechanic for spell casters.>>24428652again trying to keep it simple here, but i like it.
>>24428679gods are based on genre but eddie could be a prophet of thrash sent to lead his children to a more brutal future.
>>24428675>rouge/clericfuck yeah man
>>24428694Since Drummer is a tank then yes. Seems so.
>>24428652>>24428701>>24428578Yeah 4 stats cover everything that ALL characters NEED all of those could be class/race/bonus features
>>24428707Iron Maiden's as much heavy metal as thrash, though.What about the skeleton dude from the Megadeth covets?
>>24428679Lets pin them to societies too. Like Gwar for Demon gods
>>24428679Dude from the Korpiklaani covers for prophet of Folk. I have no idea if he has a name
>>24428749Yeah but strait metal is just a concept in this world and iron maiden is pretty thrash.
>>24428767I present Lordi for the side of Celestial beings
>>24428839twice from the looks of things
>mfw this threadHELL YEAH!
>>24428675But not all bassists are like that. Think John Entwistle, Flea or Les Claypool where their bass is a more prominent role. Or solo bass artists like Victor Wooten.Maybe bass has many paths as you can take
Where do guys think Judas Priest fits in?
>>24428862one of the great old dragons
>>24428867who is it?
Distortion could be an indicator of corruption. Just like how the heavier/blacker metal is, the less distinct the vocals and notes are. Slayer is pretty black (content wise), but you can still hear the lyrics, so they'd be like neutral lords of underworld.Distortion wouldn't really contribute to good or evil i guess, so the general chaoticness of whatever. Beasts with extra limbs sticking out their backs and mindfuckery deathgrowls.>>24428767fuck yes GWAR
>>24426882Ah good, some else mentioned it already.
>>24428871oh shit this thing needs to be there!
>>24428881Great gods of metal, this is brilliant
>>24428804glam are the elves
>>24428902Gotta honour our predecessors.And steal their good ideas
>>24428881so our 9 way alignment is Cliped Calm Distorted (law neu chaos)Black hardcore heavy (Evil Neu Good)
>>24428927I thnk he was expanding on the pantheon
>>24428881hmmm this is something to hang onto for sure, once we figure what role alignment plays.>>24428914why not just have the creatures and monster for the setting based off of metal album covers, and band names. but i suppose we can savce that for later
>>24428881When it comes down to it, the gods tend to represent Harmony and Distortion, with the themes ranging from Glam as maximum Harmony, and Black, for maximum Distortion.Then there's Silence, the power of uncreation. When Death was killed, she heard Silence, and she now seeks to bring it back with her, to deafen the universe.
>>24428966>ClipedMy noob is showing, I do not get this
>>24428880I figured the big four (Metallica, megadeth, anthrax, and slayer) could be like sub-sects of Thrash or something. Fucking phone won't post the image.
>>24429010Got it, thanks
>>24428980Yes, yes this is good. This is really good.I vote for makiong this canon
>>24428966that sounds good as long as it has nothing to do with the morality of the char, its just his style. Now as for the immortal spirits he conjures, yeah it does determine THEIR morality. distorted black summons horrific deamons while cliped heavy summons steel angels!
>>24429005Big 4 are dragons that rule over the the 4 orc tribes
>>24429056That was something i was just about to bring up
>>24428980>>24428881I was thinking that there could be pockets of static beyond the realm of distortion. Places where the distortion builds up to the point that melody and sound are lost completely to white noise (black noise?). Places that even the darkest creatures dear.>>24428966Need to fit in the other things like Glam and Folk, so perhaps just a sliding scale:Harmonic <-> Distorted (law/chaotic)Black <-> Calm(?)
>>24429038>making* starting to get tiredI think its a lot more unique than the generic good evil ect dnd system of morality. There is just sound and silence. Silence forever trying to engulf the sound
>>24429057For some reason thrash doesn't conjure dragons for me. More like giants in my mind
Well, god damn it, I was planning to sleep earlier, this thread kept me up, but now sleep calls.Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
>>24429102We have those. They are the chosen of Power though.
>>24429079*fear, dammit. Not dear>>24429102>giants>jotunn>not calling to mind the most viking of all
>>24428150I think trolls might fit better for folk metal, the folk-loric, "John Bauer" kind of trolls.
>>24429172trolls would be under death and black, an evil beast
>>24428858I agree. With this. I think all classes should have a few possible builds. You can build a stealth v. groove bassists, or technicality v. feel guitarists.
>>24429172They would have to be the happiest fucking trolls ever
>>24429172Trolls are pretty black
>>24429187so trolls are a kind of demon then>>24429169voting to officialy name the giant race Jotun
>>24428980So, is Death attempting to bring about the eternal Rest?
>>24429247The end of all things, including the metal. Truely the greatest of evils
>>24429244Death created the UndeadBlack created the BeastsDoom created the Demons>>24429244i agree>>24429247yeah the 3 big bads are, luckily they are pretty metal themselves and that hinders their plans
>>24428980death is a woman? or is it like a deadric prince, they are what they want to be but they are always princes?
>>24429287no death is a woman, but the others are probably more fluid with genders, except glam, hes just really fucking gay
>>24429264>>24429287>yfw Death is the grumpy old couple next door complaining about "all dat rackit"
>>24429283Could the enemies use attacks that void your attacks? Much like how rests and silence stops all music for a time? It could be something that only bosses to too if that is to overpowered for minor enemies.
>>24428370I feel like a classically trained guitarist would be like a wizard, where as a guitarist who just decided to start playing one day and learned from doing would be a sorcerer.
>>24429215>>24429238Hmm, I guess music like Månegarm's and Finntroll's belong more to black than folk then. Now this poses an interesting question, what about combining different genres?
>>24429329>>24429317It would be something reserved for the more powerfull enemies, and probably their envoys and prophets
>>24429353Thats why guitar is "mage"
>>24429361If its for races, you get mixed races.
so d20 d% or d6?
>>24429353hmm I ike that, I really like that
>>24429283>>24429329>>24429365Silence is the one thing that is fearful enough to unite the unholy trio of dio.I think there should be a distinction between Death as an aspect of a metal world, and deathly silence as the end of all things.
>>24429315old norse Hel? Half gorgeous babe, half zombie bitch?
>>24429361Depending it could increase your corruption or distortion, but it should be fine overal. as far as race you get mixed races
>>24429406god no!Half gorgeous babe, half Gorgeous zombie bitch.
>>24429380So (for example) the unholy spawn of folk and black would be in the shape of demonic/monstrous halflings?
>>24429404>I think there should be a distinction between Death as an aspect of a metal world, and deathly silence as the end of all things.Exactly!>>24429406Anything Norse has a pretty good chance of working here.
>>24429425Have you heard blackened folk metal?
>>24429404yeah, Death is a metal god creator of zombies and shit. Silence is what hapens when your character stops being alive
>>24429425Hell this is where trolls could fit in. What's more anti-thesis to a halfling than a fucking troll?
>>24429425or like grotesque evil dire halflings and satrs
>>24429383i vote d6 but thats just cus i play shadowrun and i have a metric fuck ton
>>24429383I'm really partial to d%
>>24429471Everything is 3d6. 666 is auto success
>>24429501Done. Print it. I'll take 3.
>>24429441>>24429448"Pagan metal is an umbrella term for heavy metal music which fuses extreme metal with "the pre-Christian traditions of a specific culture or region through thematic concept, rustic melodies, unusual instruments or archaic languages", usually referring to folk metal or black metal."http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9zt1g0ctXHgI happen to be from their hometown.And then there's Arkona...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tt6_65LDZ60
>>24429501ok so its decided
>>24429501Awesome.Anyone archive yet?
Haven't /tg/ tried making a setting based on metal sometime before?
>>24429501Awesome, I've been meaning to learn 3d6 probability
Didn't we already make an RPG like this? It was called like "Kings of Metal" or "Hail and Kill" or somethingHere it is: http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Setting:Hail_and_Kill
>>24429247alright so official cannon so far IIRCThe gods of metal create the world and populate it with thier chosen races. The young gods Death, Black, and Doom grow jealous of creation and in thier bitterness created the underworld, filling it with twisted and evil creatures to steal the enheritence of mortals.Eventually the gods of darkness turned upon eachother and in the mayhem death was cleaved in twain by Doom, but being the god of death she did not die. Instead she lay there for an eternity a broken thing. Experiencing nothing of the outside world, no light, no sound, no metal, a maddening emptieness. Now revived, she has risen a legion of the damned to to engulph the world in the nothingness that consumed her. The Rest.
>>24429535>manegarmExcellent. And for you http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mkZufiW8ddg
dont die yet!we need rules an shit!
Somebody please tell me that magic rituals of all kinds are done via mosh pits.
>>24429743Not a bad idea. The amount of fans / followers that pour their energy into a spell/song, the more powerful it becomes?So a guitarist might summon a fireball from his axe on his own, but with the might of a huge mosh pit behind him could rain fire from the fucking skies.
>>24429743not all but most are, some are done by sacrificing and shit and others are done simply by melting some ones face off literaly
>>24429700i dont know man, shits dying down. I think everyone is starting to get sleepy, I'll be sure to start a new thread tomorrow if this one dies considering the threads archived on fools and all. (suptg better imo)peace yo
>>24429743>death metal mosh pit summoning ritual>blood and teeth litter the ground from fighting>begins to congeal into a form>music intensifies>someone gets trampled and pushed into the bloody muck>sentient ooze swallows person and the transformation begins>moshing continues>central mosher mass beings to stick together>bodies meld into one another>IT AWAKENS
>>24429819so thats how shoggoths are made
>>24429819fucking this! this is how Death creates her handmaidens.
one last bump before bed.
>>24426843>>24426858>>24427173So I understand that there is another metal based pnp made by /tg/ >>24429620 is this one going to be straight metal too, or will it be a combination of all styles of music combined to make a world? I like the metal idea but since we have one already I think that it may be more interesting to have different genres of music for the god instead of having them just be all subsets of metal...just my opinion...
>>24430524Go a head and make one bro, ill help out any way i can but this one is already well into the "Metal" and not much else.
>>24430573I'll think about it I'm actually about to go to sleep but I might make one tomorrow sometime. I just though about different genres because of >>24427173 listing folk and groove as gods and it seemed like it would make more sense to me. I'll probably start it up tomorrow around 5 est or so just to get the biggest cross section of people that could help.
>>24430657Yeah he was refering to folk and grove metal. but i could see a music based society working just as well if not better
Is this new meaning for ERP, like EDL = English Disco Lovers?
>>24434153Yeah, the original thread had someone ask what ERP was, and like everyone on the internet, people gave out the answers.
The Unblack legion is a new creation, an army of many races, united together under the sign of an inverted inverted cross.They preach the new way, a way which uses the power of the black twins Doom and Death, but to use them for the purposes of light and purity.They march alongside strange and beautiful demons of shining metal, clad in togas and with feathered wings of steel.And they say all must learn to join the way of Unblack Metal.
>>24428914It's such an old, old dragon that wore metal ore over it's hide. Ore from when it was first birthed. Over the passage of time it was refined into solid metals, metals so rare no species can find them, with a small, rare, vein discovered by the dwarves once or twice a millennium. Those ores are refined into some of the most legendary of musical weapons.The dragon will lend enough of it's own metal, imbued with it's power, to make a single instrument to the most legendary of artists, so that when they play they can summon some of the dragons power. Cover songs of the greatest bands (old dragons) should be an epic skill taught by the dragons and, with part of them incorporated into the instrument.
>>24428517Maybe Chops instead of Theory?
The Lady of Death is an interesting case.Everyone expects death to be gothic, emotional and weepy.Here death is about distortion, violence, growling and music so loud it's deafening.Her followers would be masters of the muting palm.
Don't die on me!!!!
Someone should compile all the crunch into one post. I'd do it but I don't have time right now.
