Re: Beta Doesn't seam to be a big enough deal

Our group has been playing regularly and we're well into Gamma, and even without special Gamma perks, the PCs are certifiable badasses. We just finished Fires of Ra (bumped in difficulty due to our level) and the crazy things our character can pull off is impressive. Making a difficulty 20 test is a...

Re: Aysle Preview #5 - Miracles

Really any character from any cosm can worship any deity/philosophy from any other cosm. A person from Core Earth could follow the ways of Lanala (and probably some do). However, if they still had Core Earth's reality, they could still only use those miracles available under Core Earth's axioms. My...

Re: What defense do I use?

Our group sometimes gets confused remembering that shield count as melee weapons, so you always defend(in melee) with Melee if you're using a shield, even if you other hand is empty or has a gun.

Re: Electronic Locks

I don't find it hard, with a little imagination, to resolve issues like having a Aysle thief pick an electronic lock. Remember that our heroes, being Reality-rated, bend things to their will a little bit. I could easily see the innately-magical Aysle character using latent divination to correctly gu...

Re: Kaiju and Mecha in Pan-Pacifica

We have "primitive" power armor suits in the real world today, so I'm all for something in the form of powered armor at Tech 24, probably as a Perk tree a la Dragon armor for dwarves. I'm not in favor of building-size mecha at Tech 24; maybe if a certain sci-fi reality makes an appearance ...

Sometimes Tharkold and Nile don't mix

Our party needed to get a plot item from a Nile Empire movie star. So we went to the Giza version of Hollywood and bluffed our way into the area by claiming to be there for "auditions." We find the star's trailer, and this is when things go sideways. We knock politely, he shouts that he's ...

Re: Casting into melee

You haven't seen friendly fire truly happen until your group plays a Glory card on a shot that hits an ally. It's probably just the dynamics of my group, but our melee guys are many times more effective than our gun fighters. Huge Strength+big weapons means base damage in the 15-19 range, and they h...

Re: 3 Glory cards played in one round!

We saw the Critical Moment FAQ at the same time as the Glory FAQ, so we are doing it correctly as of last session. There are 5 players, and we liberally trade cards in hand at the beginning of an act to construct combos, and are not shy about trading cards in pools during combat. It's tough to use a...

Re: 3 Glory cards played in one round!

First session using the FAQ, and we still played four Glory cards. Two players took the FAQ as a personal challenge. One of them was played on a natural 68 on the dice - no Possibilities or cards spent, just an improbable roll along with Up on the initiative line. We've now played 8 Glories in this ...

Re: There should be a Perk for shooting into melee

Heh, I'm not going to tell the Russian guy with the demonic cyber arm and the impact hammer that he should stay out of my way. Guy has a base melee damage of 19. We want him up there hitting things. Generally right now I use maneuver once he's in melee to make his target Vulnerable. He hits super ha...
