Re: Pool about the pool

This will certainly alter the difficulty chart. I'm guessing that an easy task is going to be TN 0 or less. I worry a little bit if it might be disheartening for some players to roll negative numbers. I thought I read that the result rolls will be the same as oTorg, but I am not convinced I didn't i...

Re: Pool about the pool

My money is also on 40. It means starting characters are weaker, but with the attribute cost lowered, it also means that there's greater potential for meaningful leveling over time. That would mean the PCs would be no better than ords. Possibility energy is supposed to increase stats so the PCS are...

Re: Preview #12 - Villains and Foes

Interesting...the attribute values(Str, Mind, etc) are lower than I was expecting. I was figuring humans would be in the 8-13 range, but the shocktroopers' best stats are around 8. Also it looks like the shocktroopers have a non-trivial chance to at least somewhat hurt the dragon - hitting isn't mu...

Re: Preview #3 - Characters

Yeah, I played an edeinos in a campaign. She was fun, but there were some challenges. You do have to suspend disbelief a little bit here and there but not entirely. Things were dicey when we played in France since my edeinos was most likely going to be a heretic. There was also some worry about us v...

Re: Preview #7 - The Nile Empire and Tharkold

There may still be plenty of nonhuman enemies to fight in Tharkold. Sure, you can still have your quislings and your slaves (which makes defeating them a bitter proposition), but the Creatures of Tharkold book gave us lots of options, and I imagine there will still be fantastical creatures that the ...

Re: Preview #11 - Combat Options and Vehicles

If I was the GM, I'd say yes (after giving them an "are you serious?" stare). Seems like shooting off someone's testes would be enough to put them out of any kind of fight, now and pretty much for the long term -- much like shooting the eyes, I'd say. However, unlike eyes, testes are much...

Re: Preview #3 - Characters

I no there will be some changes I don't like just like everybody else. I guess I'm a little bummed about combining perception and mind as well as strength and toughness. One of my favorite characters was really good at tricking people but he wasn't super brainy period he was no Reed Richards period...

Re: Preview #11 - Combat Options and Vehicles

Would shooting the testes count as a vital blow? If I was the GM, I'd say yes (after giving them an "are you serious?" stare). Seems like shooting off someone's testes would be enough to put them out of any kind of fight, now and pretty much for the long term -- much like shooting the eye...

Re: Preview #11 - Combat Options and Vehicles

I see, this makes it more clear to me... the idea of Mishap effects. I was indeed thinking that any skill roll would be a possible Mishap in the rules as written (RAW). That could be very harsh. Indeed. I was a bit alarmed at first because I misinterpreted it as well. I've always spoken out against...

Re: Preview #11 - Combat Options and Vehicles

‘sniping’ single characters while taking out a bunch of mooks is usually not possible…you’re either going for Wu Han or his minions, but unless he’s mixed in the middle of them, not both. I hope I'm not being dense here. So you couldn't target Wu Han's four minions and him in the same multi-action ...
