Re: Kaiji and Mecha in Pan-Pacifica

The idea does not thrill me. I've never been much for mecha. I mean, I enjoyed Voltron growing up, but I didn't get into any others. So keep that bias in mind. I like keeping monsters rare. The Borr Aka is legendary, and it makes sense in Living Land. It is a terror, but it's an unapproachable terro...

Re: One Wound vrs no Wounds?

If Wounds has a dash, that means that any wounds will take them out. If Wounds has a number, then that is the number of wounds it can take before it's taken out.

Elite foes get 1 additional wound, which may be what you mean by mini-bosses.

Re: Firing into melee while in melee

Thanks, Sunrunner, for the reminder on the ruling that targeting dodge triggers the firing into melee rule. That is good enough for me, and my group will be pleased to hear that I'm reversing my stance. As for big things, I envision the opening credits of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 where Drax is...

Firing into melee while in melee

In my home game, I ruled that if Bob is in melee with a dino and Carol is also in melee with the dino, then if Carol pulls a pistol and fires at the dino, there is the usual chance of accidentally hitting Bob, just like if she stood 20 meters away and fired into the melee. But the wording of dodge o...

Re: Opinions on lightning strike miracle?

Thanks for the clarification on the location that the miracle may be invoked, Deanna. My player will be glad to hear that. Something else that strikes me as I read the miracle: Since it targets Dodge, I rule that it is subject to the firing-into-melee limitation. But it says that there is no penalty...

Re: Opinions on lightning strike miracle?

The cyberpriest in my group took it. He's always getting after me on allowing it work indoors. Maybe I'm reading the fluff too literally, but I never allowed it indoors before. I suppose this is a great thread for clarifying that. Though considering how limited it is already, I suppose a lightning s...

Re: Informal preview of the Secrets of the Nile Empire and Religions of Core Earth PDFs

And here I mock my players when one of their crosses became enchanted within Aysle and then was claimed by Dr. Mobius when he kidnapped them and took all their stuff, and I tell them that he simply soldered a washer on the top of it. That looks much nicer.

Still gonna taunt my players though.

Re: Total Party Wipe

they thought to play Opponent Fails, I probably shouldn’t have allowed that card to stop a wound soak Technically, no, you shouldn't, but when you only have 3 players, that is a reasonable house rule to allow. Small groups do have a disadvantage regarding game play and interaction attacks. I think ...

Re: Aysle Timeline

I have zero knowledge of Heathrow, but I imagine that it is an iconic enough building that part of the fun is presenting all the various changes to a structure that is known by many (but not me the ignorant American).
