Re: A Thousand Dramatic Skill Resolutions (and a DSR)

Arguing a case in court (all the interaction skills!)
Convincing local authorities to let you go/allow you to proceed/activly help you (may include bribes, red-tape bureaucracy, bullying, etc.)

Re: A Thousand Dramatic Skill Resolutions (and a DSR)

No idea how the cyberpapacy supplement will deal with such things, but I've used DSR to override security systems on a CP installation - using a mix of Computer and Faith checks.

Re: Thoughts on a homebrew perk?

Large on top of what will be a limited Dex is harsh, but makes sense. Maybe adding another benefit such as 'ignore penalties on Bulky weapons?'

Re: Cyberpapacy Preview #2 - Cyberware

'Bit!' was the thing that flashed in my mind when I first saw the drone jockey art - glad to see the follow-through! The previewed Perks all sound spot on. Definitely looking forward to this one, even more than I did Aysle.

Re: House Rule: Alternate Perks

To be honest, I'd feel a bit squidgy about it at my table (as either player or GM). I really like the idea that as a player, your choices are your choices, and you get to deal with the difficulties as well as the benefits. Not to mention the opportunity to play certain Perks for laughs (or drama). B...

Re: Stacking Perks and Pulp Mind Control

I figure that kind of mind control is pretty much the same as that demonstrated in Force Awakens, where Rey zaps the guard to let her loose, and then drop his gun. He's kind of in a daze, not really aware of what he's doing, at least not enough to alert anyone else that anything alarming is going on.

Re: Dragonflight 40 - Bellevue, WA

Just a brief report. Our event went well, about 15 players with 4 GMs. The heroes discovered and disrupted a number of schemes around the world: -the secret factory in Cyberpapacy Argentina which was assembling a Mechagodzilla was infiltrated and sabotaged -the ritual to infuse a dragon in Finland w...

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

A lot of what I'd kick in has already been said: --martial arts with weapons, and maybe 'styles' (though I'm not sure how you could do the latter as more than mere perk labels without getting grittier than TorgE ought to be - but I'm not a game designer, that's your job, ha!) --some development of t...

Re: Things you'd like to know about Tharkold

The main thing I want to see from this one is "Why is this place somewhere to go?" There's some *stuff* laying around, thanks to the nuclear bombing of a bridgehead, sure, but what makes adventures here interesting? What makes players go, "Man, we have GOT to go check out Russia!&quo...

Re: Some creative help with a tricky character concept

Possible businesses... Shipping. Whether by rail, truck, aeroplane, or zeppelin, this gives ready access to just about anywhere. Government contracts provide access to most security installations. With cosm restrictions making long-range travel problematic, he could have arrangements with various ma...
