Re: GM screen bugs

I'm wondering why it's not showing up for everyone; I don't see it and neither does my friend.

Re: Same with Rule Book

It's only slightly more expensive than a long sword ($20) and the axiom is low enough it's only going to conflict in the Living Land. The armor piercing isn't justified without raising the price. Really, a katana isn't any better than any other well-made sword. They just look a lot cooler.

Re: Same with Rule Book

Acrobat (and similar PDF editors) has optimization settings that balance things like image quality and file size. I'm guessing the wrong setting was applied at some point during the PDF finalization.

Re: Some questions

1) Armor table, page 143: Spiked Plates says in the notes, "bonus adds to unarmed damage." But the description makes no mention of that, and instead says, "The spikes add the armor’s bonus to unarmed tests when Grappling (see page 123) or resisting a grapple." Which is true? Bot...

Re: Melee vs Unarmed Defense (vs Dodge?)

Reminds me of the old Highlander TV series. Duncan would be fighting another immortal with his katana and be loosing. Then he'd get disarmed and start using his martial arts and kick the crud out of them! ;) He should've just knocked out the enemy with martial arts, then pulled out his sword for th...

Re: Two rules questions (Reconnection chart)

It still does make a difference, in that low tech weapons don't cause contradictions and won't phase out if you disconnect. It's just not quite as big a difference as before.

Re: Four rules questions (Disconnection and equipment "phasing out")

I didn't see anybody commenting on this, but I just wanted to mention something. Dragon Armor is a starred perk. As such it's a contradiction in every reality, except Aysle, regardless of magic axioms. It's the Ion Gusoku armor that has an axiom limit (Tech 24), I think people confuse it and the Dr...

Re: Super Att/Skill

If the player chooses his limitations well, he'll do all the work for you. It's those pesky players who try to game the system by choosing "does not work when disconnected" as a limitation. I'd point out that no Pulp powers work while disconnected outside of the Nile (they're contradictio...

Re: Two rules questions (Drama deck and "Double Tap" perk)

Think of it as a Short Burst that works on guns without Short Burst (or that you choose not to use). It's not as effective, but it's better than firing just one shot. Hmm, brings up a question, and I don't have my book handy. Bursts have to be shared among multiple targets. I presume the same is tr...

Re: Random questions for Dean

Axiom isn't the reason why miracles, magic, and psionics are on lists for certain cosms. Otherwise, all miracles would be included in Living Land, all magic in Aysle, etc. I see no reason why raising an axiom would make any difference. The main reason all spells aren't Ayslish is that spells like E...
