CotV begins to gain some attention

Previous Thread: >>44013453

Song of Swords is a realistic fantasy tabletop RPG that draws inspiration from historical fechtbuchs, weapons and armor. Its combat system is fast and it can be used for both fantasy and historical/mundane settings.

Call of the Void is a pulpy sci-fi tabletop RPG about fighting space-nazis and hunting giant whales with harpoons made out of the moon. Its combat system is more modern, based in the early 20th century, but can probably handle combat up to the present day.

Here's a .rar archive with the newest version of the rules as well as all related current working documents. At this time the latest version is v1.9.9:

Here's Ballad of the Laser Whales' latest version: https://www.mediafire.com/?rtbjk51jnm2wv8a

Here's a wiki detailing SoS's fantasy setting, getting filled up bit by bit as Jimmy reveals more details:

There's also a roll20 room where new players are encouraged to try the rules, test new rules, and find game breaking issues: https://app.roll20.net/join/346755/hRKd4w
The room might be empty, but the people who teach the game still browse the thread frequently. If you're looking to learn, post here in the thread. We also play Guy Windsor's card game Audatia in the room.

Ohaenadin can only meat that can speak, as per the strictures of their empowering spirit entities. They also cannot touch refined metal.

Jimmy has dropped lore before that the peasants in the Spain and/or France equivalents give their children bags full of iron shavings to act as wards against the elves, because disappearances and abductions are not uncommon. The kids get ate.

>> No.44138971

The Ohanedin have a ceremony where their young folk go out and kidnap humans, and then ceremonially kill and eat them to officially become adults. The humans in the area have their kids wear little bags of iron filings around their necks to throw in case an Ohanedin comes for them.

It's on the same level as validity as the setting being Jimmy's dick and Dace being the urethra, as has been frequently suggested.

That's basically the concept of a defensive grenade, yeah.

Thusfar, nobody has found a limit to the Void, but the "center" of the Void, at least locally, is the axis around which the islands rotate. They call it the Vortex, it's a big sort of black hole in the Underspace where the Dust breaks, and the full horror of the beneath is exposed. It spins counter-clockwise, and all of the islands move around it in a steady orbit.

Most of the islands have circular orbits, and so remain more or less stationary relative to each other, but a few have very eccentric patterns, and so radically change location relative to the other islands--though generally these changes are still predictable.

In the heart of the Vortex, just barely hovering over Underspace itself, is the Black Isle, which has never been explored due to the dangers posed by the vortex, and also the gasses that rise from its exposed maelstrom, which suffocate human beings, and cause engines to malfunction. Zells can venture there, and are said to even have a settlement on the bottom half of the island, though they don't talk about the top half much.

Have you never heard of the tall dark and handsome stranger? trashy romance is codified almost as much as our favourite Taiwanese moving scrolls. Dark hair and tall means broody, curt but gentle and sweet. Our kuudere. Prefers solitude and books but secretly wants to be energetic (but only for you). Brighter hairs(blond, red sometimes but rarely) means happy, outgoing and adventurous. Usually very physical and typically plays sports while still being your genteel man. Will usually have a dark secret to contrast his bright nature.

The weakest Orr-din, equivalent to his race as a a 1 WIP human is to his own, with 8 hours of downtime for sleeping etc., who attempts a Kneel! every 27 minutes on the minute, can attempt to Kneel! 35 times in a day.

Searing Enigma Tuesday!

Today, you get a pre-release of an SoS monster, the Dobarcuu.

A hideous, furless creature with a slimy, bony body and pale flesh, the Dobarcuu vaguely resembles a dog the size of an elephant, but with fins and gills, and a humanoid head with thick, matted hair. It does not have eyes, but black pits that writhe with small tendrils, and its mouth has a huge, slathering mess of sharklike fangs instead of regular teeth. The creature’s jaws are capable of opening to a distressing degree, and can easily swallow a man whole. The eye sockets also lead to its throat--it can consume its prey through those as well. Its tail is a great fin capable of projecting it through the water. Its four legs end in prehensile hands, eerily similar to those of a human, but with two thumbs each.

The Dobarcuu is a hateful creature with almost-human intelligence, and a capacity for cruelty to match. The creature hides in water, salt or fresh, and waits for travelers to pass by. If the travelers camp by the water, the Dobarcuu will try to pick them off one at a time, luring them away with vague human-sounding whispers, and then attacking and messily devouring them. The survivors will be left fearful for the night, but will not be attacked. If they sleep near the water again, the Dobarcuu will repeat the process. If they move inland, sometimes it will follow them, if they are close enough. The creature’s sense of smell is acute, but it fears moving inland because of its slow speed outside of the water.

The Dobarcuu is a patient, cunning predator, and it will not fall into simple traps, but one temptation it cannot resist is pregnant women. The Dobarcuu hungers for unborn children above all other delicacies, and will even risk attacking in broad daylight if the chance to consume one arises.

Dobarcuu are mostly found in the Slivers, and are increasingly rare, as the Unkindlies have grown very proficient at hunting them.

>> No.44204966

How common is knowledge of all these various monsters? Like, if your average adventurer came across a Dobarcuu or an Aufhocker or a Grue or whatever at random, how likely would he be to recognize it and know its weaknesses?

>> No.44205110

Hi jimmy!!, mind answering more of my pointless language questions?

The name of that monster of yours got me thinking, is the Osterbijan language mostly confined to the nobility of Krajina? Would you say that it has been more or less successful in propagating to the lower classes as Norman French after the conquest? Is Albish in the present day littered with badly mispronounced Osterbijan loan-words?

Rule 63 Tito for your trouble.

>> No.44205422

Most people have at least heard of such monsters, but obviously hearsay and folklore often contain half-truths, exaggerations and inconsistencies. Only particularly learned folk, or professionals like the Unkindlies, have concrete knowledge of the beasts' capabilities, weaknesses and behaviors.

Grues tend to be more mysterious than other creatures because so few people survive encounters with them.

I would say yes. One example I believe we made canonical is that expensive foods generally have Osterbijan (Serbian) names, much like how in our own world, meats tend to have French names because only the wealthy Normans could shop for them. Cow meat is beef, chicken is poultry, etc. In Krajina, beef is govedina, pork is svinjetina, etc.

Little stuff like this. Generally though, the Osterbs haven't really done as good of a job blending in as the Normans did, there's a lot of racial tension between the two groups, and nobody is really comfortable with the arrangement.

But you could capture the feel of any of these more easily in a system like FATE if you really wanted to. SoS isn't about cinematic combat, it's about realistic combat. If you want to throw the trappings of an anime over that, that's totally fine—a little narrative flair can blur the line between the two anyway—but expect your game to focus more on the nitty-gritty details of fighting rather than the choreographed back-and-forth you might usually associate with anime.

That isn't necessarily true.

That's directly against the interests of Helion. Maybe in the case of the West you can trace things back to the Ruvian/Helian Empire, but that's like blaming the 30 Years War on Romans.

I think Jimmy's rationale for weapons not causing extra pain is that the contact is so brief and that the pain is more than drowned out by the pain of being cut with a goddamn sword. You should note that stuck arrowheads do in fact cause extra pain, and the Ohanedin certainly don't intend to be wearing those.

I think >>44224911 has the thrust of it. Besides, if you touch a metal pot that's been on the stove for half an hour your hand recoils and you get a short momentary pain. Same with being cut for Odin. Maybe getting run through and having the sword left in them does the extra pain like arrows do, but at that point they have more pressing problems. I specifically remember it being contact as there was a discussion about insulating Odin from metal with wood.

That can't be it, because then you could just wear clothing underneath metal armour like any normal person and have done with it.

It's times like this we need Jimmy, but he's asleep I think.

Wut? Those two things don't have anything to do with each other. A very short and temporary contact with something painful usually also only causes a short and often mild amount of pain. A hit by a melee weapon will often only have the blade in contact with your body for the faction of a second, not enough to cause significant pain from the contact alone even if it was glowing red-hot.

I was talking about the insulation thing.

>> No.44225430

That's probably a matter of degrees, and cloth under metal isn't enough.

Ah right, missed that last sentence. I think it was stated that wood, and only wood, can serve as insulation against metal. Some particularly wealthy Odins apparently even have armour with inside wood paneling that they can wear with no ill effects.

The particular mechanics of that haven't been detailed yet, but my personal pet theory is that wood is the opposite to metal in that it's a conduit for spirit rather than a blocker, so by using it the Odin's connection with the spirits is not interrupted, hence there's no pain. I suspect if you took a Burdinadin and stuffed him in a wood-insulated environment suit, he might end up suffering full (or even increased) spirit contamination as if he was wearing nothing at all.

I wonder if you could make a kind of woven cloth out of wood. Would paper do the trick?

>> No.44225553

It's not all wood, but a particular sort of petrified wood that allows Ohanedin to wear metal armour without pain.

Someone should begin to prepare a new bread and stockpile the unanswered questions from this one for Jimmy.

>> No.44226446

We need paper armor stats.
