Re: Languages?

If the characters find a clue in Arabic they have choices... 1) If someone knows the language and can translate then it's immediately useful. 2) If nobody knows the language but has the proper contacts they can "ask around" to get a translator to help. It takes more time and probably some ...

Re: Parkour

The tabletop RPG version of Dragon Age has your ranged combat success rolls based on Dexterity but damage based on Perception. The idea is that it takes hand-eye coordination to accurately line up the shot and hit the target, but keen vision to find the best place to aim at on the target. So someone...

Re: Transformation questions

But if you allow Transformations to change races, you have to account for it. It only starts with a rule that says, like, "If an Attribute is over the racial maximum, it becomes the racial maximum." That's easy enough. But then... What happens to the extra points? Do they go away? Can you...

Re: Parkour

No, you're not getting it. Adding Profession (Acrobatics) to DEX is exactly like adding the skill Acrobatics back in the game. Adding adds to any attribute is great and all, but you can do that with most skills. You can argue that Fire Combat should be a MIND skill also, and just use it with DEX as...

Re: Perks and Axioms

As I understand the intent, you can only have the perks that pertain to your cosm. If your cosm changes due to transformation, you lose those perks but may replace them with legal perks. You may even be able to swap out some skills if necessary. ProfessorK did say when you're not in the cosm of ori...

Re: Perks and Axioms

Perks that have a star * next to their prereq description are contradictions when used outside of their home cosm. Some powers also come with axioms, like spells, miracles, and psionic powers, and using one of those powers in a cosm with a lower axiom is a contradiction. Same with perks tied to equi...

Re: Transformation questions

Alas. I almost had a cool concept for a zookeeper who transformed into a Warden, until I remembered that you can't turn into an Elf. Nothing is stopping you from being a Warden who transformed into a zookeeper. An elf from Aysle can go to Core Earth and transform to that cosm. The downside of cours...

A closer comparison is the morning star, which also has two parts connected with a chain. It's also Tech 8 so I think you're spot on.

That would make it extremely powerful. Especially stacked with Sniper.
