Re: Extra effort in combined actions

I had this discussion on my PbP game. I figure the DN is either 10 or the original number. In the end, I dismissed it being the original number because if the helper could make it, then why even help? Just do it. For example, if the DN is 16 to study the hieroglyphics, and Bob is helping Carol, then...

Re: Different Contradictions in one action

Must have missed something: Focused Strike and Ki Strike are only tested as contradictions as Surges because they're activated after you roll damage. How exactly does this happen? The surge roll is made at the start of the turn but the activation is after the action. Is it simply the case of having...

Re: Nile Empire En Media Res

Funnily enough, I started my PbP campaign in media res within the Nile Empire. Here is the introduction I presented to them: The acrid odor of petrol assaults your nostrils, punctuated percussively by the gritty landscape of the desert. The ringing in your ears subsides gradually as you struggle to ...

Well, yours might look nicer than my obvious screen grabs, so maybe I should be asking you to share yours. *grin*

Re: Nile Empire Traps

The answer to this seems pretty obvious, but is it correct that divination and alteration may be used in relation to traps without a spell being cast? If this is so, does divination have any other regular uses which don't require the casting of detect magic? Before the cosm books were released, I h...

Re: Fires of Ra Discussion and Questions

My players very rarely use any attack options, I think it's because they don't know what most of them are... so I'm going to create a A5 handout and laminate it so they have a reference ... a "mini player screen". I cobbled one together by taking screen shots of the Core Book. It's at hom...

Re: Restrained & Active Defense

It's easier to simply say that being Restrained prevents all actions and let the GM make an exception in cases where it makes sense to allow for tricking or psionics. The GM will have to decide what exceptions are allowed when comparing restraining a character in a web cocoon vs. restraining a chara...

Re: Fires of Ra Discussion and Questions

But don't let the players forget that they can use interaction attacks to make her Vulnerable or Very Vulnerable. From the sounds of it, she might be immune to some of them, but everything (that I know of) can be ruined by a good maneuver or trick. If you roll high enough, you could even cause her t...

Re: Mixed Zone Stelae

stelae automatically connect to nearby stelae. Might be going a bit deeper than can be told. But is there any prefrence possible for connecting to Stelae of the same cosm rather than of another one? Also leading on from this, is there any way for a cosm/darkness devise to flip the stelae of another...

Re: Too Much Tactical Analysis

After discussing this more with my players, I have a better understanding of the nature of the complaint. The root of the complaint has more to do with the feeling that the cards are driving the character’s actions rather than supporting their actions. Instead of deciding on a course of action and ...
