Realistic Underdark

No.79147814 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Alright, in normal DnD the underdark is basically a plane of weirdo underground bullshit with little grounding in how cave systems actually work. That's cool and all, but I think it would be cool to speculate about how an actual super cave system could develop. The only concessions from reality we'll need to start with is that the planet's geology can support the existence of a massive network of tunnels and chambers, and a generally more robust ecology that could survive constant intrusions of monsters, villains, and intrepid adventurer, not to mention sentient locals, but beyond that I think we should try to focus on realistic flora and fauna derived from existing cave-dwelling entities or at least carrying similar adaptations, and add in the fantastical from there once interesting mundane organisms have been fleshed out.

To start with, I will suggest three "basic" biospheres which form the foundation of the realistic underdark ecosystem

>The areas with the largest amount of biomass and biodiversity are underground lakes and rivers, which carry precious organic particles from the surface into the cavern ecosystem, forming the foundation of one of the most complex underground food chains. Depending on the size of the river, lake, or even ocean, there is the potential for large, complex creatures to inhabit the lightless waters. While an easy source of food and water for cavern natives or explorers, there is also unparalleled danger, as some of the most dangerous creatures also make their homes in this resource-rich environment, and not all of them are restricted to an aquatic lifestyle.

/tg/ - Drawthread

• Provide good, detailed references (pictures are better than verbal descriptions), so the artists know what you're looking for.
• If you have a WIP quote the Anchor Post, and attach the WIP so your Drawfag can find you.
• Do not reply to other deliveries with a request that the artist fill your request next, this is called 'piggybacking'.
• Do not make multiple requests in the same thread and do not serially request multiple characters after a delivery. Suggesting several concepts for artists to choose from counts as making multiple requests.
• If you're unsatisfied with your completed request, please wait at least one week before you re-request. If someone follows this rule, don't waste posts by complaining about it.
• Don't critique others' requests. If you don't like it, don't draw it.
• Ignore the bait for they don't deserve (You)'s
• Stay on topic

>Drawfags and Drawfags-to-be:
• Feel free to drop your tumblrs/websites/commission/etc information, but if you're dropping your commission info, please consider filling a request beforehand instead of just advertising.

Magic System Pet Peeves

No.79111759 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
What are your most common concerns or complaints regarding the magic systems that you see in TTRPGs and/or other fantasy media, and what would you change about said magic systems if you had the chance? What would you like to see more of?

For example, I personally tend to dislike settings where the magic system is 100% genetic in regards to who can use it or not. I mean, if that were the case, wouldn't everyone and their mother try to get magical blood into their family lineages, particularly the nobility equivalent of the setting? Not to mention how that would have even come about, or why it would only show up in humans (or other humanoids) and not animals either. But Mistborn actually handles it well, with the nobility having gotten the power of Allomancy originally as a gift from their immortal king, and do their best to keep the bloodlines from mixing with the lower castes. Not that they were very successful, as the power has diluted enough that the titular Mistborn are almost mythically rare, and “Mistings”, who can only use one power in contrast to all of them like the Mistborn can, are much more common.
