Re: Is there a master list of archetypes from all official products

Just wait until the Orrorsh Sourcebook comes out! It's going to have two more!

...we don't like to talk about what happened to the rest. :?

Re: Moving and Attacking

I know we're just having fun, but I don't think it's possible to have an Attribute less than 5 anyway? I guess some Threats do, so someday this might be an issue for the odd Possibility Rated Gelatinous Cube that Transforms to Pan-Pacifica and dreams of being a ninja, but that's feeling a little edg...

Re: Casting into melee

Honestly, given that movement is basically `free' and the Becoming Vulnerable thing is the only problem with moving in and out of melee... I like that better in the sense of it feeling more like at least it's the Melee character doing something, but functionally I don't see the difference. Eternity ...

Re: Casting into melee

It also just occurred to me that that would counter the whole purpose of the Firing into Melee rules. Deanna said they exist mainly to stop groups from having one melee person to keep the enemies bottlenecked and let everyone else just build Ranged characters and shoot around them. If the tank only ...

Re: Casting into melee

Wow I am impressed with my ability to start stuff. We are a hard group to set off. I can't even remember another time we've had a multi-page discussion about one or two sentences out of the rulebook. Rather than putting the onus on the shooter, what if it was a perk for the melee guy. But as Kuilde...

Re: Two Velociraptors?

The Ankylosaur and Velociraptor are both in the `gear list' for Beasts and Vehicles (Living Land p34), so it seems to just mean buying one of those. I'd assume if you used it to buy a second raptor, it wouldn't come with the added... er, perks, that you get with the Perk, like being able to spend yo...

Re: Casting into melee

Interesting. Of course, for this aspect to cause that problem would require a team with one tank and then a whole team of mages, and I've never seen that -- firearms are a lot more common. I'm not sure having one person in the party able to use ranged abilities even after a melee character had engag...

Re: Casting into melee

Atama explained it beautifully, but I did want to emphasize that in their place, I think the firing into melee rule is downright brilliant ; simple, elegant, and effective. A lot of games have rules to make firing into melee a risk, but I've never seen one that does it so well... it usually is a ver...

Re: Casting into melee

Thank you, Atama! Honestly, I keep wanting to argue the speed of lightning vs bullets, because it is significant, but it's also basically irrelevant. It kind of helps establish why I think at least the spells (as always, also meaning miracles and psionic abilities) that we have make sense in working...

Re: Casting into melee

I think the question of a Miraculous attack missing is completely unrelated. I mean, yes, it's funny, but the Firing into Melee rules are a whole separate thing that can mean you hit your friend even when you hit - even, indeed, on a really good hit. That's not your god missing, that's your god misu...
