Re: Vital Shot Feasability

I'd say Gospog and undead still have their heads as vital areas, mostly because it makes cinematic sense: if you want to kill a zombie aim for the head. I would say that for jiang shi but not gospog for exactly that reason. The gospog should be different from zombies, and you can't kill a plant by ...

Re: Aysle Preview #9 - Magic Items (Part 1)

I'm not sure how you're getting from "attained a limited amount of sentience" to "all artifacts are fully sentient". It sounds like you're right that it's a lot to explain the Attunement rule and to stop Light characters from using Dark artifacts and vice-versa, but it sounds a l...

Re: One-time-use Destiny Cards?

That's... really interesting. It's intrinsic to me that "playing" the card means you use it up, and that idea has been built up across many games, I'm sure. It would never even have occurred to me to think to ask that question, and like others here, I am absolutely certain that's the inten...

Aw, I have rocks that let me forecast the weather here on Earth!

*picks up rock* It's going to rain.

Re: Stacking Clarification

Sorry, Deanna - your personal opinion does sometimes get mixed up with official rulings. Luckily, they go well together. ;) I don't know. I see the general complaint against the Dwarven Warrior being able to get up to 21 damage, but that does require them to have a base 14 Strength and 3 Perks (Drag...

Re: Stacking Clarification

I'm going to just say, the idea that punching someone with a fist wrapped in metal would cause you to do less damage than punching them with the same fist not wrapped in metal seems more than a little absurd to me. Fighting with gauntlets is going to be the same style as fighting with bare hands, an...

Re: Nile Empire Kickstarter stretch goal PDFs going out

One I am really surprised didn't make Spatula's list... Does Swashbuckler make qualifying Interactions Favored and Skilled, or does it ignore the first -2 penalty from any source? The character sheet says the former, but the Perk description says the latter, and that is by far the biggest confusion ...

Re: Stacking Clarification

That is how I've always read it, at least, so I don't think you've been too fuzzy.

So if you had a +2 to Dexterity, a +2 to the Dodge Skill, and a +2 to your Physical Defenses... those would all add up to a +6 to your Dodge, right?

Re: Telekinesis errata

I'm kind of hoping for ideas of more tweakable magic in the CyberPapacy, maybe. (Because to me that was always a CP thing, more than Aysle. Aysle may have better spells, but you need a Cyberwitch to start hacking them.) It wouldn't actually be hard to replicate a lot of that through Perks. You could...

Re: Telekinesis errata

Honestly, anything that lets you sub out one Attribute for another reliably is terribly strong to start with. We have a character who picked up Mage Hands as a throwaway, and since the first time she actually used it, it's become pretty much all she does. The only thing that's really saved it from d...
