gear chart

I like the Alignment Chart. It’s perfect in its imperfection. I decided to do a little project; a series of collages with each alignment as the theme. Here’s Lawful Good.

And now, my attempt to label each of these characters. None of these characters belong to me, and most of them are not public domain. All rights reserved and whatnot.

FROM THE TOP: And from left to right:

[Angemon | Digimon.] [IRA GAMAGORI | Kill la Kill] [Albus Dumbledore | Harry Potter]

[Chun Li | Street Fighter] [Issho/Fujitora | One Piece] [King Arthur | British Folklore] [Saint Jiub, Eradicator of the Cliffracers | The Elder Scrolls] [General Tullius | The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim]

[Commissioner Gordon | Batman] [Uther the Lightbringer | Warcraft series] [Yoda | Star Wars] [Sgt. Mike Cosgrove | Freakazoid!] [Col. Roy Campbell | Metal Gear Solid]

[Vash the Stampede | Trigun] [Tyrael | Diablo] [The Lone Ranger | The Lone Ranger] [Insp. Akane Tsunemori | Psycho-Pass]

[BANG SHISHIGAMI | BlazBlue] [Robocop | Robocop] [Ky Kiske | Guilty Gear]

[Spock | Star Trek] [Cecil Harvey | Final Fantasy IV] [Optimus Prime | Transformers] [Marth | Fire Emblem]

[Jonathan Joestar | Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Phantom Blood] [Kenshiro | Fist of the North Star] [Phoenix Wright | Ace Attorney]

[Jet Black | Cowboy Bebop] [The Azorius Senate | Magic the Gathering] [Sky High | Tiger & Bunny] [Batman | Batman] [Simon Belmont | Castlevania]

[Superman | Superman]

If there’s someone that isn’t on here that you think should be, or if someone on here shouldn’t be on here, then feel free to let me know. Please. I’m lonely.

pages 365 366 and 368 - these are the main tents of Economian camping. They are designed to be used wherever you like, but are particularly popular over unappealing surfaces where you probably shouldn’t be camping in the first place; shallow bodies of water, swamps or particularly dirty ground. The design is such that the tension in the poles accounts for the structural shape. While pole tension means no additional ropes are needed, it also puts the tents under and enormous amount of stress. Any minute weakness in the fabric, whether from an unnoticed flaw in the manufacturing process or the tiniest aberration in their real world use (eg light breeze, too much sun), results in the poles straightening and tearing the tents apart.

It feels pretty nice to be in one while its functional, like you’re the smartest, most comfortable person on the planet, but when they fail, Economian tents can cause enormous damage and even death.

A thing I am working on: A complete set of random starting equipment tables.

Basically, what I’m working with right now is the innermost part of the table: a random adventuring tool table, or a set of them. Ideally, the way I want it to work is you can roll (e.g.) 2d8, 2d6+2, or 2d4+4 on the same chart, with common and cheap things toward the middle of the chart and more expensive things on the ends. Then I can just figure out how much money a roll on the chart costs, and convert the starting money roll in OD&D/Swords and Wizardry into a table that gives your starting weapons, armor, and a bunch of rolls on the gear chart.

Unfortunately, it looks like the method I came up with doesn’t really produce distinct-valued tables unless there’s a huge jump in value with the various die steps. The tables I have now are worth, like, 0.9, 1.8, and 3.5 silver pieces each, and that’s not much fun. I might have to go to separate tables.
