Re: "Small Packs Hunt Best" card (LL booster)

But while that has the potential of making me groan as I roll out 30 gospog attacks, I have to admit that it's quite thematic. Yeah, it's those 30 (or whatever) rolls that have me cringing, both in terms of sudden difficulty spike but also just work on my part. I think I'll probably "interpret...

Re: Trigon Integrated Weapon Mount

I'm okay with players spending some of their regular starting budget to "fill out" the cost of a mounted cyberweapon. As long as the mount itself is paid for fully by the cyberbudget, it's okay if the weapon "crosses over" between the two budgets IMO. Also, if someone didn't spen...

"Small Packs Hunt Best" card (LL booster)

In the new LL drama deck, card 26-L, Small Packs Hunt Best, says: "Mobs may not cooperate on tests." I'm not sure if this is supposed to be good news or bad news for the PCs. Is the intent here (A) that the mobs remain as mobs and continue to act as a group, but don't get the usual bonus? ...

Re: Why does taking the same arcane perk just give +1 ability?

However, we did want those people who _really_ wanted to have lots of spells be able to have that option. That's kinda like the Axiom Increase Perk. It's not intended to be balanced with anything. It's there for people who really wanted it. Since that's pretty much exactly what I want to be possibl...

Re: Nile Empire Sourcebook Questions

Okay, thanks; I see now how I was misinterpreting it. I'm not sure if it needs a slight rephrasing to avoid that happening, or if it was just a unique quirk of my brain. Either way, thanks for clearing that up; it makes much more sense now. :)

Why does taking the same arcane perk just give +1 ability?

If you take a new arcane perk (e.g., Spellcaster), you get three new abilities (miracles/spells/powers). If you take an "add-on" perk (like Optant or Pulp Sorcerer), you get two or three new abilities, and an expanded spell list. But if you take the same arcane perk you already have, again...

Re: Nile Empire Sourcebook Questions

Back to some actual NE questions . . . :) 1. Lethal Shot perk -- why the flat skill levels instead of the usual "at least X adds in (skill)"? It's just a bit jarring that this is the only perk (and Beta perk) so far that uses that type of prereq, so I'm curious what the reasoning was. 2. C...

Re: Nile Empire Sourcebook Questions

The Unbreakable Shield power seems to imply heavily that it's an object, but if it doesn't take that limitation, I assume it can be a created "energy shield" or some such. However, if it doesn't have the Boomerang enhancement and I throw it, what happens? Basically I'm trying to figure ou...
