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 ...

Re: Aysle Preview #3 - Perks

Definitely agree that keeping Outsider separate makes sense, especially considering that every single perk for it we've seen so far could fit a Light or Darkness character concept (PC or NPC). And I do agree that "Law of Delving" seems a bit off for arcane research. I realize that "de...

Re: Aysle Preview #3 - Perks

The core book describes "Outsiders" as those who turn away from both Darkness and Light, but there doesn't seem to be any actual rule against combining Outsider perks with either Light or Darkness perks. Is that intentional, or an oversight? Will I be able to make a Paladin/Bard who can La...

Re: Nile Empire Sourcebook Questions

The way I saw that FAQ is that it basically exists so that, if a player says, "Okay, as we leave the Delphi mission briefing, my mage is going to cast Armor on the whole party and then just maintain it for the rest of the adventure," the GM can not only say No but also back it up with some...

Re: Aysle Preview #3 - Perks

Holy yikes, Blood Magic can be yours out of the gate? That's almost too tempting not to take! Love the whole preview. Only one thing, it ends with: We cap this preview off with the Prowess Perks, which highlight the martial abilities of knights and archers, and the Heirloom Social Perk, which grants...

Re: House rule so PCs can own personal vehicles -- thoughts?

I appreciate the feedback on my house rule, and the replies about how starting vehicles might work. (I do wish we didn't have to wade through posts about "how PCs can acquire vehicles in game" though -- could we please drop that off-topic tangent?) It sounds like I might not want to finali...

Re: House rule so PCs can own personal vehicles -- thoughts?

However, I will push back on this idea that starting characters outright can't have them. This is untrue. As I've said many times, if you need them the Delphi Council will provide it. Additionally, your enemies could have them. But this is a thread about PCs owning personal vehicles, and in the OP ...
