Well if a dream house with a wargaming room counts then.
A Medium sized to large house, secret passage ways, secret rooms, a basement with two rooms with 16 state-of-the-art desktop PCs each with air conditioning to keep them cool for badass LAN parties, a home theatre, all 3 rooms connecting to a huge central gaming room with a giant, modular board (that can be taken from or added to as needed), lots of terrain, 10K points of every GW army (A selection of Titans when available), every Flames of War, Infinity, Battlefleet Gothic, and Firestorm Armada armies/fleet.

I'd fund a 2D traditionally animated musical by Disney. With Trayzn the Infinite as the villain and an inquisitor who just earned his sigil as the protagonist.

A Michael Bay Space Marine film because Space Marines don't need plot, they need explosions.

A Planetside style Imperial Guard MMO.

The libretto pretty much is the script. I am not familiar enough with the lore of 40K to write it myself, or choose which libretto to use.

From the script, I could probably figure out what styles of music to use, and what voice parts the actors should be.

...Hm. Well then.

I can't make promises, because of how sincerely and totally ignorant I am about opera. However, I think I could try whipping something up. If there's any one that happens to be reading this that had the same thoughts though, I would advise you not let my words stop you. More librettos mean more choices, which would be better I think.

My first thought is a governor who is preparing for the Imperium's tax collector. An honest mistake from a friend- maybe his wife in sympathy for a starving city lets them at the grain stores, or an effete brother of the governor's getting swindled by a rogue trader- suddenly puts the governor at risk of not paying his tithe. In fear of the Imperium's wrath, the governor tries every measure possible to make up the difference, but only makes the problem worse and worse and worse.

I'm kind of halfway tempted to throw in Chaos temptation to try to make up the difference, but I'm not sure. I'll have to think on this. And this is just the idea, no real writing.

If I just posted the libretto to /tg/, would you see it or should I try to make it go some place else?

I will create Commorragh in the middle of an artificial island in the Pacific. Every city of extravagance, depravity, and vice on Earth will pale before the black spires of the Dark City. Slaves, drugs, blackjack and hookers will flow in a never-ending orgy of abandon and lust.

The catch is that I have to make it related to a traditional game, which means that the entire thing has to technically count as a very large piece of tabletop terrain, which prospective citizens must win the right to live in through gladiatorial LARP in the Wych-Cult arenas. Non-lethal, because it's just a game after all. Think of it as the Disneyland for sado-masochists.

Of course, once we have spent all of the money on drugs (yes, we will spend all of the unlimited money) we will have to start raiding mon-keigh nations for supplies. Fortunately we will have a large supply of battle-honed, six-pack-abbed, drug-crazed nerds on hand.

The city will cause its own downfall as it pisses off every nation at once, and the resulting giga-ton explosion will leave a gaping hole in the ocean where it stood, an eye of terror. The prophecy of Sodom and Gomorrah fulfilled.

Actually, screw that city crap, I'll just take the blackjack and hookers!

Chaos is always a plus in opera. The gods always have a hand in what's going on.

Ahhhh, now there's an idea.

It starts with a challenge! Four foul cultists, worshippers of each respective god challenge each other to do the worst evil with the least action. The Khornate states he will kill a single man, setting off a firestorm of war. The Nurglite says he will mutate a single germ, and it will cause a plague that will kill billions. The Tzeentchian says he will magic a spell to make a man think a single thought that will start a heresy that will ravage the planet for eons. And the Slaaneshi says she will leave a curtain drawn, that will destroy the world. The others are shocked by her boast, and don't believe her. The slaaneshi, a servant in the castle of the governor gives a knowing smile.

The next day, the governor is pleased to congratulate his ministers and nobility for their work in gathering the tithe of their agri world by throwing a concert. The sorcerous servant goes about the crowd, serving them graciously and humbly, while turning to the audience and singing of their hypocrisy and foul deeds. She then serves the governor's wife, and notes she's the worst of all, a woman with a compassionate heart. The sorceress let's the governor's child go and play, and the wife comes along to wonder where her child is- the cultist advises that she last saw the child in the tower. The governess goes up, and then glances at the open window, and sees a long train of starving citizens, begging for bread as the planetary defense force beats them back.

Then, wife lets the starving folks have some food, governor panics, attempts to gather more for the tithe provoke rebellion, everything goes to hell blah blah blah tragedy. I'll work on it.

I would hire several excellent screenwriters and force them into a room to generate movies to make /tg/ staples look badass. I won't forget those I don't partake in; 40k? You're getting a film that will be filled with epic space combat, dozens of worlds filled with pathos, darkness, and amazing production values for every codex. D&D? A six movie serial that chronicles the Greatest Game Ever Played. Magic? We do the Dominaria cycle from Brother's War to Rath. Then a film about each individual non Dominaria block setting. A Kurosawa epic Kamigawa, Innistrad from the mind of a room filled with horror writers. Each movie will make the Lord of the Rings look like Plan 9 From Outer Space.

And so on. I will sink the remainder into autism research to find a cure for neckbeardism and weeaboo angst.

I'd make this comic come true.

It would be a collaboration between Nintendo's finest, Bioware and/ or Bethesda depending on how ESO works out. It would have preset adventures for single or multiplayer, online support for up to six player plus DM, all the tools and pieces to build your own adventures, and the whole thing would be compatible to all major rule sets.
It would have a dedicated team chosen to create errata content and all the money and time to make this thing fucking perfect.

But with so many more people wanting it, then GW would have to make a large amount more, therefore putting more onto the market so that they could continue to make more money. then prices would go way down as more people had access to the figures and were more willing to sell them. Then what will happen is there will be something that causes a good chunk of the band-waggoners to jump off, sell all their stuff, and then you can get damn near anything for next to nothing. Then when GM starts losing money, they'll go back to producing the normal amount.

Such is the cycle of economics.

>> No.23254510

You are right. Addendum:

The Bioware and Bethesda I refer to are the companies of yester year when a role play game was meant to foster actual role play and could be aneurism inducing if you didn't treat the game like a real, life and death situation. No speech wheel bullshit. No super special moves right before the BBEG. Just a trillion branching dialogue options from a silent protagonist and the abilities I earned through combat and hard work.
