Re: The Living Land Preview #1

Since it's becoming a question: Q:Why are all the cosm books going to be dated one year later? There's a few reasons that we're setting the corebooks one year after the invasion. First, we weren't sure there was going to be an Infiniverse at all when we were planning the cosm books, let alone what ...

Re: How Bad Would These House Rules Break the Game

I think adding BD is not a good idea, the whole game was balanced with those kinds of numbers in mind. That said, in my games player's call is at 15 result points. I have also rejiggered interaction results with oTorg Stymie implemented. At +10 player's call comes too often, and I only realized late...

Re: On Read Minds

It makes it inferior to the Intimidation skill, which is cheaper, works as an interaction attack/defense in combat, has no axiom limits and can't cause contradictions, doesn't involve a contested roll, and gets you the same info you'd get from Mind Control. Basically you've neutered the power to th...

Re: On Read Minds

I truly don't want to just get rid of the power, I would like to use it in some way.

And as I said before, I think I will allow it to be a contest. The person knows there is something going on, so they are able to roll a defense.

Re: DN of a foot race and DSR Dilemmas

Not really (and not at all by the rules -- MR is based on size, not speed, speed even gives a penalty to hit because of increased evasive maneuverability). In a chase, the bonus is not for how fast you are moving, the bonus is for the top speed capacity of the vehicle. The rules work the same wheth...

Re: Human Racial Perks

I can see not doing human perks cause it could be said that what makes us "human" is what makes us "core earth". We wouldn't be this particular style of human (i.e. "adaptable" and "survivors") if we weren't from core earth. Therefore, I think I would just let...

Re: DN of a foot race and DSR Dilemmas

Well I would rather DSRs go longer than just 5 rounds, so I think I will do the same and make it so that only the current step can be accomplished. Also, I think 6 or 7 is a bit low for a foot race DSR, so I think I will make it standard difficulty, with certain "complications" thrown in t...

Re: Clarification about zones, transformation and Day One LL adventure

I am afraid that Minor Laws will add needless complication. It SEEMS like it would be just easier to expand on the existing world laws.

I give the benefit of the doubt that these will be more or less needed to explain things as they are, rather than just something cool™ to add to the game.
