Re: Increase Axiom

I definitely feel a conflict between what makes sense for the game (where I like the idea of Increase Axiom being useful for all four Axioms) and what makes sense with the world (where I totally agree with FrankG.) I don't see any way to do both, and I don't fault the devs for picking the latter. I ...

Re: Aysle Backer Archetypes

(not trying to have a beef with you, utukushi, I think you're one of the best posters on here) Thank you, and likewise! I think it is, as Gargoyle just showed beautifully, totally possible to see things differently without having any beef. Heck, we could go totally vegan. ;) My point was that it ma...

Re: Aysle Backer Archetypes

Does this include apportation spells that are on a different Cosm list? That seems super.. if you'll forgive the term.. fuzzy to me. The general rule is that everyone only has access to their own Cosm list, so I'd generally assume not - but it also says, as you say, "any", and Ancient App...

Re: Increase Axiom

http://www.ulisses-us.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=3975&p=40891 ...Was the original discussion, and Deanna even mentioned that we'd see it in Heroes. I'd forgotten, but going to look, sure enough, it's in Tech, because I suppose where else would it go? But personally I like this idea. I un...

Re: Vow of nonViolence

Totally agree that the -2 line would have worked better in the second paragraph, where it's talking about the character making attacks. But the wording about using it after an opponent has rolled an attack... that seemed clear to me. That's why Opponent Fails is actually an Errata and not just a cla...

Re: Aysle Backer Archetypes

Yes, that! Thank you, Savioronedge - I think you may have put it better than I've managed in what feels like twenty years of complaining about it. :lol: (And that's from my side! I can't imagine how long it's been for poor Deanna.) Though it's actually important to remember that Skills don't need po...

Re: Aysle Backer Archetypes

I agree that the perks on the Backer Archetypes can get a bit wild, though. I'd be leery of accepting them as a GM if only because they seem so tied to the archetype concepts and making them "work". Oh, I'd caught Columbo, but I missed Tahani, too! Thanks for pointing that out. But more i...

Re: Aysle Backer Archetypes

That's fair, but even ignoring that, a free Interaction every round is pretty huge compared to most Perks, especially since it's separate from your character but uses your values. So you can actually use the same Skill twice in a round, which is generally blocked for good reason. Your Raven can Inti...

Re: Pan-Pacifica Infection Cards

I'm not much for social deduction games, but suddenly I desperately want to play a game of Werewolf, Pan-Pacifica Style. "Me? I'm definitely a Delphi Agent, not the Kanawa infiltrator. Or the infected. Or the traitor. Or the mole. Or the mutant. Or the yakuza spy. Or the Black Boardmember. ...O...

Aysle Backer Archetypes

There are some super cool concepts in the Backer Archetypes, always, and I wanted to start with a thanks to everyone who has contributed them! Some of the Perks are really bothering me, though. I've felt for a while that the Perks they introduce tend to be a little unbalanced, and the Aysle set is f...
