Re: Preview #16 - A Closer Look at Perks (Part 2)

There are two different camps here. One is to treat the effects as a master system, and adjust based on specifics (i.e. balance over flavor). The other camp wants the cleric to heal really well because "it's a miracle" and is willing to handwave the balance in favor a flavor win. OTorg wa...

Re: Preview #16 - A Closer Look at Perks (Part 2)

The Masterbook system (which is based on oTorg) is an easy-to-use rules system for creating any kind of SFX. If you want the damage effect to be higher you have to adjust the calculation, if you want the range to extent, adjust the calculation, balance it with disadvantages like contagion or incant...
