Game wasn't too fun, I liked JA2 more, but I can't remember why. Maybe I'll try it someday, but I don't have windows now so it needs to be runnable in wine at least. And I need to download it from some torrents because I have no CD drive now.
I'd like to tell you about the wonders of "Hungarian cottage cheese" or "körözött" (cca. circled) as we call it. It's cottage cheese (cow or sheep or the mix of both, my favourit is a 50-50 mix but I usually eat pure cow's) mixed with red paprika powder, caraway/cumin, fine chopped onion, salt, butter and/or sour cream. I like it with butter and very little sour cream. Eat it as a spread with tomatoes, radishes, paprika etc.
Blogpost. I have half a box of Twinings tea I only drink it occasionally as it's considered a more expensive and finer brand. I noticed however I crossed the expiration date. The tea's still fine so I decided I drink it fast. Now I drink 1,5 l Twinings Earl Gray on daily basis. Feels good, man.
Pic #13 The finished product. You can see how the soup looks creamy. All the onions, tomato slices, paprikas are dissolved, with some potatoes as well. It could endured a little more dried paprika for more redness (and maybe more salo and onions) but it's all right.
Pic #14 A portion. With bread, a slice or two per person, the whole thing can feed four people. It was simple but tasty. Some people like to add other veggies and different seasoning, it's all fine, but I've seen people put general soup spice mix into it which I think is a sacrilege.
And that's it. Maybe I'll make some other stuff in the future. I can't promise anything but May 1 is close now it could give another occasion. I might cook lecsó (lecho).
>>16167 Yes. I know noone personally who puts garlic into the gulyás. It's not irregular, pretty much everything can go what's "normal" for European seasoning. I remember such garden cooking when we used cumin and saffron because why not and I know people who prefer it with lots of parsley leaves. The tomato and the fresh paprikas I used are also optional, and more can be added by the end of the cooking process to keep those intact and biteable. Also the soup doesn't need to be this short on water but generally one wants it to be at least somewhat thick. In school cafeterias they usually serve it very watery but still can taste fine, I also prefer it more soupy if it's cooked in the kitchen.
Hello yes KC is kill. You are free to use this board as your temporal refugee or to move here permanently. However, please refrain from creating more threads about state of main KC and related stuff. Instead
USE THIS THREAD FOR ALL DISCUSSION REGARDING KC, ALTERNATIVE BOARDS, KC MODS, THAT FEEL WHEN NO KC, ETC.
I will be removing all threads regarding this topic that will be made after this announcement.
This is much smaller board compared to what you were used to on KC main and things works bit differently here. I am doing this to prevent some quality threads from being deleted because of influx of pointless threads regarding same topic. If you want to discuss some general topic like news, games, music etc. please check the catalog first if such thread isn't created already and use that thread.
Other than that there is not much moderation here so feel free to post whatever (remember the global rules though).
>>16067 guessing it is a day to celebrate the aboriginals of Brazil
>>16088 To be honest it seems like the various KC posters all want different things out of their board hence why there were a number of alternatives to begin with. I hope they find what they're looking for, be it serious discussion or simple apu posting.
I want to begin a new series about a Hungarian pen and paper role playing game I've already mentioned in other thread(s). It's called M.A.G.U.S. - Kalandorok Krónikái (Chronicles of Adventurers) and I wish to guide you through it's history, world and maybe even rules. Frankly I'm not well prepared and most likely not the best person for the job, but, well, I'm the only one here and this is the best it's gonna get. IRL talking with a real M.A.G.U.S. fan about M.A.G.U.S. is a real herculean challange as they can be extremely assburgerish about insignificant details, they can cite some careless comment from an obscure magazine's unknown article anytime and consider it rock solid canon they can base their opinion. It's worse to play it with an experienced fanatic as they are capable arguing to the point of the knife with the Kalandmester or Mesélő (Adventure Master or Tale Teller/Story-Teller, the DM, it's KM from no on) even if everyone knows the First Rule: the KM is always right.
Of course any other rpg can be discussed here, but I'd like to keep this thread for pnp or tabletop rpgs, crpgs should go into the Vidya thread.
>1st pic This is the Első Törvénykönyv (First Code of Law or Rulebook, from now on ETK). It was published in 1997 for the first time. >2nd pic The Nagy Zöld (Big Green). Well this is the real first rulebook, published in 1993. The rules were written for a few years (I saw some parts in a mag from 1991) still it was full of errors, fuck ups and inconsistencies some of them haunt even in current year and will haunt probably forever. Never read it btw. >3rd pic Második Törvénykönyv (Second Code of Law) published in 1995 so even this predates the ETK... This one... I don't think it is more than some shitty addendum, even the foreword states every rule in this book is optional. >4th pic The continent of Ynev. I've no idea how to pronounce it so I call it Inev. The world itself is called Satriale... no, Satralis it has two other continents noone cares about only some vague shit were written about them and are unplayable by default. I think the ETK not even mentions the planet or operates on the supposition that Ynev is the name of the world. In following posts you will meet names very typical fantasy worlds. Lots of them were borrowed from IRL or other fantasy resources so prepare some familiar sounding stuff.
Oh I forgot. It's just a typical medieval fantasy world, with elves, dwarves and orcs. Luckily I don't know anything about gay-ass halflings.
>>16124 It was the last post on the religions/cultures. I could write more on the default Human civilizations (e.g. Northern Alliance with the Pyarronite Commonwealth, Shadon, Abasis) but it really is just regular medieval fantasy mostly.
>>16125 Thanks for sharing, buddy. As an amerifat it's always nice to have someone share the foreign /tg/ stuff that nobody feels like translating. In thanks I'm going to (try to) talking about the first Japanese TRPG to get a full and official English translation. The one that paved the way for all the rest.
>>16137 Wait. The T in TRPG is stand for Tactical and not Tabletop right? The word tactical is usually related to military matters and this game is about.. maids I guess. This will be amusing. I'm looking forward to it.
>>16125 I also could write some more about the psi and magic, maybe about the rules a bit more and something. But for now I want to concentrate on other matters dragged far too long. One more thing. The new rulebook they were planning for the end of 2017 beginning of 2018 is still under construction. There might will be more news in May. They do have a certain amount of material for it, but I'm very skeptical.
>>16143 In Japan the T stands for "Table-talk." Seriously. (Probably has something to do with the fact that most nips in the 80s were exposed to Ultima, Wizardry and then Dragon Quest before they ever saw a core rulebook.)
>>16137 While it's at the back of the book I'm going to start with the design notes since it really gets to the heart of what Maid is and why it has value outside of being a meme game.
Maid was published in 2004 and published in English in 2008, so this was before weeaboo bullshit had been fully mainstreamed. Ewen Cluney (who is incidentally a rather cool dude) was infected with the idea to translate Maid in 2007, his friend "Diamond Sutra" organized the entire publishing effort short of the actual translation, and Ryo Kamiya (the designer of Maid) rubber-stamped the whole thing. There's of course a whole spiel about how Maid is fucking weird by Japan's standards, and an expression of hope that it would be the beginning of a cultural exchange between Japanese /tg/ and Western /tg/. (This sort of happened; outside of Tenra Bansho Zero, which was in the pipe at about the same time as Maid and translated by the same company, I can think of at least three Japanese RPGs that got English translations off the top of my head. One of them was even designed by Kamiya and translated by Cluney.)
Diamond Sutra bought a copy of Maid on a trip to an Akibahara hobby shop (this was before Akiba became one giant otaku wankfest, and so the qualification is necessary) as a joke, but a year later he got shanghaied into playing a game with Cluney as he was getting ready to demo his translated version at Gen Con next year. Immediately he was sold; just the right intersection of fun, irreverent, and rules-light enough to pick up in about five minutes. Apparently the whole project went from Cluney's rough draft to selling professionally-printed copies at Gen Con 2008 in less than a year. That's pretty impressive.
The commentary from Kamiya deserves to be reproduced verbatim. (The entire book is like this.)
Overall, reading the design notes reminds me of just how awesome tabletop gaming nerds can be when they get their shit together and work hard to share their weird ideas with the world, and makes me sad that so much of the industry's mindshare is held by corporate slaves and pretentious fucks.
