FWIW, that fits a LOT better IMO.

Category: Pulp Power

So should it have a star by it, like all other Pulp Powers?

Re: Orrorsh should drop a Maelstrom Bridge into New Mexico - Old West / Horror

In particular, dropping a single three-Stelae zone across the world from your established lands? That's basically asking for the whole thing to get uprooted within a few days. Doesn't a hasty uprooting risk popping a lot of people into what-ifs? It would be (comparatively) easy to uproot, but not n...

Re: Orrorsh should drop a Maelstrom Bridge into New Mexico - Old West / Horror

I’d make it so that Los Alamos is what the Gaunt Man is after. There’s something in there, maybe some experiment dealing with reality, and it will greatly advance his conquest plans. Not a bad idea. IMO this proposal has a ton of potential and the plot seeds and themes write themselves. So the only...

Re: How do people handle new, more specialized Perks coming out?

As far as Spellcaster vs other similar perks, my thought process and chain of logic is as follows: First off, in theory all of the spells should be more-or-less balanced in terms of difficulty to cast and axiom vs effect, right? Which means that if a GM and player wanted to come up with a totally ne...

Re: Aysle Preview #6 - Threats

So I"m just curious, why is lich spelled "lyche"? Is there a need to distinguish Asyle liches from others?

Re: Player's Call: Locking out abilities on PCs

I think it's fair, but the main concern is keeping things fun. Since you have control over this as a GM (not the dice, but whether you use the player's call to lock out an ability), I would limit that to less than once per fight, and make darned sure you don't do it to the same PC on the regular. Th...

Re: What defense do I use?

You could also steal a rule from GURPS as far as bayonets (specifically) go, for characters who don't want a perk: New Gear: Long Bayonet (Tech 18, $50) When attached to any rifle, this turns it into a functional (if poorly balanced) melee weapon as well. The hero is assumed to be simultaneously hol...

Re: What defense do I use?

I think this is the perfect place to drop in a custom perk if the player wants it. I think something like this would be balanced: Emergency Parry (Prowess) Prereq: At least two adds both in melee weapons and one of energy weapons, fire combat, or missile weapons When attacked in melee while holding ...
