Does the Armor Spell stack with physical armor?

I have always been assuming yes but... Core pg 186 If a character is affected by more than one enhancement or reduction that changes a skill or attribute—technology, miracles, etc.—the effects don’t stack. The target gets the strongest of the effects, however. It lists Technology in there. So if an ...

Re: Poison & Soak

I think I'll rule that my players can use Medicine to make an Extra Effort roll, using the Combined Actions rules on pg 120 Core, to give a bonus to the Strength check. I'd probably give a penalty to Medicine if they have no First Aid kit at all, and bonuses if they have a fully stocked Trauma Ward ...

Re: Is there a maximum hand size?

A possible mechanic to curtail runaway glories occurred to me as I read through this thread: When a glory is played it *stays displayed on the table* until it's hand size buff goes away at the end of the next act. This means... It cannot be grabbed by a master plan The more glories in play, the less...

Re: Improvements to Charisma

One thing to bear in mind if house ruling that Reality is Charisma based...Orrorsh Corruption gets real bad! As you fall into darkness your ability to hold onto your own Reality also gets weaker.

I think I kinda like that...

Re: Cyberpapacy Day One result (spoilers)

Excellent recount. One thought occurs: "The priest played a Martyr card to have him anticipate the attack and leap on the Host so they both take the damage. This forced the Host to spend some Possibilities to negate that damage." If a player uses Martyr like that it should take out the hos...

Re: Faith in Cyberpapacy

This is correct. Note that this also means that if an Ord who wasn't a Cyberpapist worshiper was able to invoke miracles, once they're disconnected, they can't do it at all anymore. Do you mean only while disconnected, or even after they reconnect? If the Ord had already transformed to the CP then ...

Re: The Living Land Preview #2 - Kaah!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The problem with that scenario is that it's hard to telegraph to the players sometimes. Often, they never run, even when NPCs are getting killed etc, and then they blame you for creating a killer encounter. This is definitely an are where the no secret info rule can be useful. Player: He Negated? I...

The Crowman (from Worzel Gummidge) is trying to take over the world! Maybe he's Core Earth's High Lord?

500XP characters? At 50XP per band that's Kappa level.

Or do the XP bands increase in size? So 50XP is Beta, 150XP is Gamma etc?
