Re: Living Land Preview #6 - Perks

There are a lot of different ways to find a character. Sometimes you start with a concept, sometimes you start with a cool power you want to try out, sometimes it's just, "You know, I haven't actually played an Electric Samurai yet." And if your start for this game is, "I want to be ...

Re: Ion Gusoku

Maybe it's like in some video games where you get a checkbox to say if you want to see a helmet on your character or not but the mechanics don't actually change either way? It is a cinematic game after all, and since when have movies cared about the actual effectiveness of the exact armor the charac...

Re: Strangle questions

You’re overthinking it. It says it’s like “dispel magic” then defines what that means, and makes it obvious that it’s only for mental influence. Also, the term is “psychic” not “psionic”, and I’m not sure TorgE treats those terms as synonyms. Either way, the limitations of the power are laid out in...

Re: Strangle questions

Additional question from just looking at the power, why is a kinetic attack resisted with willpower?

Re: Living Land Preview #6 - Perks

The only Perks in the book that don't have a Living Land Cosm prereq are the Prowess and Social ones. The "Cosm" entry is at the beginning of the category. I'm guessing this includes the new faith perks? I had hoped some (not all) of them might be available to other cosms that get the bas...

Re: How do you handle Range modifiers?

In general I like to think of range in games in broad terms. Like the range bands in ffg sw or the range tags in dungeon world. Close, far, near, long, extreme, etc. I haven't actually run or played in a game that expresses weapon/spell ranges in actual measurements for a good few years at least. I ...

Re: Living Land Preview #6 - Perks

Imho that perk needs some more design work. Currently it is just a perk that rewards system mastery and number crunching. While I'm personally not a fan of the whole order of xp expenditure changes its efficiency thing I think that you can allow a certain amount of system mastery by the time player...

Re: Day One Nile Empire Adventure

Off hand and without having read the adventure, I'd probably run the pc's sneaking past a group of enemies with a dn of their Find + the combined action bonus for the group size. With mixed Find values picking which to base it on is a bit of a judgement call. Could go with highest, lowest, whoever's...
