Re: Things you'd like to know about Pan-Pacifica

You have to remember Rule 0 - "Player characters exist". This is true in PP as it is in CP... you have to have ways to get around the Observation State and do STUFF because you're heroes and that's what heroes do. This puts an onus on both the writers, and the GMs, to have holes in system...

I read that as Scythe-casters at first and all kinds of ominous ideas crept through my head. :lol:

Re: Things you'd like to know about Tharkold

How is tech treated? Is it lost technology like in WH40k or early Battletech? Is it an ongoing process of research and development built on the back of sacrificed thralls? Is it a hybrid?

Re: Things you'd like to know about Pan-Pacifica

How do Pan Pacfica psychics differ from their Core Earth and Tharkold counterparts? What is the role of the organized crime in Pan Pacifica? Broadly speaking, reality rated Pan Pacificans have a much easier time blending in with other cosms. How are the Delphi Council and the High Lords capitalizing...

Re: What do you want to know about the Cyberpapacy

1 - Is encryption even a thing? I could see the church banning it because it's easier than developing their own code breakers. I could also see the church using exactly 1 algorithm that they know inside and out only to be completely stonewalled by the options available to Core Earth or Pan Pacifica....

Since I can't post in the other thread and this seems like the place: I'm really glad you implemented that change for the cosms that don't have books yet.

Re: Lowest Armor value ? Confused by wording

Yeah but then if your wearing some full boy armor it's unclear if it still hits the low TOU since you can find some weak points in it... The core book covers that. Full body armor protects against fire and other attacks that target the lowest armor value of the subject Full body is a quality on the...

Re: Telekinesis errata

What would most GMs here do if they had player who asked to rebuild their PC who was built off of TK? Allow it? or them's the breaks? General answer: rebuild entirely. Personal GM answer: figure out what the player wants and go from there. That could mean a full rebuild or it could mean I create cu...

Re: Telekinesis errata

True, but you can compare it to the bullet spell, lightning bolt, and fireball. That's what I just did. In terms of pure damage and number of targets hit Lightning is almost identical to the Barret M82, Fireball is identical to a Petrol Bomb, and Bullet is identical to the Glock 9mm. My point is th...

You can't compare move slow, move fast, move faster to choosing between a high powered sniper rifle, a petrol bomb, or a magical pistol.
