Re: Fires of Ra Discussion and Questions

Don't you mean the Veiled Viper... The one who pulls the strings? Besides, the Hooded Cobra was a second-stringer... he was a knockoff from the original Cowled Cobra. Who, of course, was in turn a knockoff from the grandaddy of them all, the Mantled Mamba. Sadly, the Mantled Mamba was undone when hi...

Re: Fires of Ra Discussion and Questions

You could always have the person killed be someone who was with Operation Eris, and not the Hooded Cobra. That'll show'em. This would work, but will feel extremely arbitrary from a player perspective. It's like the DM saying to the player: "What, you killed me hero? I'll show you!" Becaus...

Re: Things you'd like to know about Tharkold

Tharkold always felt like the natural place for body horror (Space Gods had the biotech but not the right vibe) but never seemed to fully commit to it. I know you can't really go full Cronenberg - it's Torg, not Kult - but I always wanted those hints leaned into a little more. I would wholeheartedl...

Re: Things you'd like to know about Pan-Pacifica

So, the idea that PP is cyberpunk/biopunk his what worries me, because it has the challenge that PP has no cyberware. So, we're not talking Neuromancer. It's more like Snow Crash (Neil Stephenson) So, if you think about the kind of tech that might be available in PP, it would include things like: Sm...

Re: Things you'd like to know about Pan-Pacifica

I can see an assassin society like in John Wick arranged for the Triads/Yakuza etc. This. Definitely. Others: Who are the corporate/challengers to the current power structure? Social 24... and I mean really social 24, which I don't consider Tharkhold... suggests that the high lord relies on complex...

How to post errors?

Sorry, been traveling - Deanna asked us to submit errors rather than post to the board. Can someone provide directions please? (don't want to bother her more since she's quite busy).

Thank you!

Re: How Surprise Works

More generally, let's say PCs enter a room, they see one enemy but do not see another.

Is there a surprise round, and if so, how would it work?

Re: How Surprise Works

Here’s another trope to help explain things... The lone security guard who hears a noise, and goes searching around a dark room with his flashlight. He’s freaked out, paranoid, and extra alert. As he’s peering into the shadows, a silent figure creeps up behind him and strikes! Was he surprised? He ...

Aysle Review and Balance Comments

This is not an Aysle Q&A thread... it's just for commenting about the initial release, likes and dislikes, and balance. I am surprisingly pleasantly surprised... The put out a lot of content here, and they really changed the play and feel of the Aysle domain in a very significant way. On the who...

Re: Aysle Sourcebook Q&A Thread

Can anyone tell me how skald isn't better than the psionic power foreshadow? DN 12 scholar for skald while foreshadow is DN 16 precognition. Skald has no chance of disconnection (no star on the pre-req, so not tied to a world law) Skald's charisma requirement is for characters that do not typically...
