[ERROR] No.14269960 [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

I want to play a mammoth 40ft long sentient snake like creature with a self-feed gatling gun affixed to my tail.

What table top will allow this to happen?

>> No.14269973


>> No.14269974

You have no arms. How would you even load the gun?

>> No.14269986


>> No.14269990

GURPS maybe?

>> No.14270004

The same way Abaddon does. Daemon magic.

Eclipse Phase, yo.

BESM. And it's a fairly low-point character concept, honestly. Want to add obscene wealth and/or a magical servant to that?

>> No.14270034

Exalted, they've got freakin' everything.

>> No.14270043

A magical servant would address the problem regarding reloading that arises from the lack of arms. The giant snake should at least wear a tophat and monocle though.

>> No.14270047

Welp I also kinda wanted to load my new born snakling babies into the gun and fire living infant toxic "smart" bullets. How'd that fit in?

>> No.14270065

GURPS, fo' shizzle.

HERO, if you REALLY want to 'sperg out.

>> No.14270230

GURPS man, it'd be an Innate Attack, with Crushing (Cr) [possibly Piercing damage, if you wanted it to represent the offspring's fangs) Damage, probably with No Knock Back, and/or No Blunt Trauma. It would also have a Follow Up attack that does Toxic (tox) damage, to represent Venom. The venom (tox. damage) could also be resistible, or have any number of Side Effects (Blindness, a Heart Attack, Nausea, Hallucination, etc.) and Symptoms (same as side effects, but only come into affect after "X" amount of the Toxic [venom] damage).

>> No.14270244

What is that even from?

GURPS all the fuckin' way, bro.

Fuck BESM. Watered-down GURPS, and designed for fucking Weaboos to boot.

>> No.14270426

I statted the character up for an average party in 5 minutes.

I'll see the GURPS designs tomorrow, I take it?

>> No.14270447

Rango. A movie about a chameleon turned sherriff. Pretty good considering Nickelodeon hasn't done 3d in a bit.

>> No.14270457

Scratch that It was good. I'm not going to cheapen it with comparisons.

>> No.14270479


>> No.14270510

You have spoken that name of the game which shall not be spoken of!


>> No.14270595

Giant Snake (5)
Gatling Gun (5)

Remove a point from each and add a two point Outlaw cliche if that's appropriate. I haven't seen Rango.

>> No.14270640

He's not so much an outlaw. More like a "legend". People bring him in when they want someone dead, he is honorable, principled, and always leaves with someone dead. He can also handle and manipulate stuff quite well despite the lack of arms.

>> No.14270668

Fucking Exhalted.

...ugh.. fuck that masterbatory game.

>> No.14272891


It was actually animated at Industrial Light and Magic. Their first ever 3D movie.

>> No.14272937

you'd have them in about 20, if i was at home. That was just off the top of my head. He'd have the No Legs (snake-like, whatever it's called) disadvantage, centauroid body shape, probably a +1 or 2 size modifier, increased speed, no arms, innate attack for the gun, another for his bite (which would also be linked to Sharp Teeth), constriction attack, code of honour, etc. Too bad i'm not at home.

>> No.14272960


Hey man, fuck you. Giant gatling gun snake would be the perfect enemy for the sentient whales in power armor.

>> No.14272984


>> No.14272988


And it would actually fit in. No one would bat an eye.

>> No.14273015

Gamma World would work too.

A friend played a cowboy made of rattle snakes. There was a snake in his boots. His boots were made of snakes. I am reasonably positive, nay CERTAIN, that some background combination would give you what you want.

>Fuck BESM. Watered-down GURPS, and designed for fucking Weaboos to boot.

BESM is a great many things, complete and utter weeaboo trash, easy as all get out to break, and has hilariously bad scaling over power level.

But anything described as 'like GURPS', no sir, that will not stand. Not at all. I demand a duel with pistols at dawn.
