Re: Perk Advancement Cost

Anyone else been thinking about this? I think about it every time I give XP. I think having an XP reward system that is absolutely fixed (5xp per act, end of story) along with a curved XP cost system is broken for any group that is going to play long term. The characters will eventually stagnate fr...

Concentration on a Contradicting Effect

This came up in my game, where a psionic was using her Telekinetic Barrier in a Living Land/Orrorsh mixed zone and she had to make a Concentration check. She rolled a 1. We then wondered if this would be a roll that is subject to Contradiction and would the Everlaw of One disconnect the character. B...

Re: Mounts and Speed

Unless you're making a PC horse, I don't think you should apply the same character creation rules to the horse. I think that would/should include run multipliers.

If you are making PC horse... weird. Cool, but weird. :)

Re: Combined Actions in a Chase

I'm realizing that I'm remembering the oTorg Many-On-One rules incorrectly. It doesn't make combat damage more complicated... it's just not compatible with the Eternity damage rules.

Re: Combined Actions in a Chase

I can see it with the way you described things, but overall it doesn't really seem like Combined Action fits for Land Vehicles. You can't all get together and drive a thing - and do it better! - the same way you can all shoot at the same person and be more likely to hurt them, or all work together ...

Yeah, I was thinking along those lines.

And to be clear, I think it worked out great the way I did it in the context of a traveling chase/battle.

Combined Actions in a Chase

In an adventure I ran recently there was a chase with two Storm Knights on a single dirt bike vs 11 Thugs on dirt bikes. Everyone had Land Vehicles at 8 (7 with the MR modifier) and the Chase DN was 11. I play tested this chase ahead of time to re-familiarize myself with the Chase rules and work out...
