Wow! That alone is pretty crazy.

Re: Does this make sense as a use of the Dramatic Skill Resolution

What makes it "not a DSR" for me is that it's too fixed. The trucks have to make the turnoff immediately and in quick succession. There's no room for error or delays. Compare that to the classic "defuse a bomb" DSR where there are discrete steps that have to be taken but you don'...

Re: Cosm specific Possibility energy

How many cosm specific possibilities can you have? If you gain 2 from LL and then go to Nile and gain 4 more, then go to PP and gain a couple... is there a limit? Is there a time limit before they fizzle out? How does it work? The limit would be your normal Possibility allotment, right? As your Pos...

Re: Does this make sense as a use of the Dramatic Skill Resolution

What’s preventing any particular truck from making the turn when that step is not available? What are they doing that round instead? What are possible complications, setbacks, or critical problems?

Re: Old School Perspective

There’s no One True Way (Malraux’s propaganda aside). Different approaches work for different groups. About the only constants, IMO, are the needs for communication and consent between all involved parties. Having grown up with early D&D in the 80’s, I have no aversion to tinkering or house rule...

Re: Gospog of the Fifth Planting - Living Land clarificaition

Is it a rectangle standing on its short end? Are you looking at the final PDF? It is the Beta symbol, but there's some font issue that's keeping you from seeing it (you can copy the symbol and paste it into a word doc to see). I'm not sure why it happens. Word says the font is OpenSymbol and that fo...

Re: Fires of Ra Discussion and Questions

That looks like a tough encounter. Her armor bonus comes from a breastplate, so presumably that's Torso-only protection. Which means it can be bypassed with a -2 to hit. But her dodge is also pretty high (13) so to get that +2 damage (from ignoring armor) you'd need to hit 15...

Re: Boxes for future Kickstarters

I like the bio hazard one for PP!

Tharkold should be in the style of a Hellraiser puzzle box.

Re: Hot Targets for High Lords

Germany and the remainder of un-invaded Europe would be highly desirable targets. I'll be curious to see why Uthorion is the only HIgh Lord (aside from TGM, who has different plans) to not really gain any territory in the first year. Sure, Pella Ardinay casting him out was a setback, but Tharkold ap...

Re: Aysle Kickstarter Launches July 2!

Dude. What do you think is actually happening here? They’re lying to you and hiding the information because... reasons? Just to piss you off? You think they don’t want to know the exact same thing you do?
