Re: Breaking free of Mind Control (pulp vs psi)

Strictly reading the two, Nile MC also isn't subject to ending via Concentration checks or the use of the Clarity power.

Re: Different Contradictions in one action

That's how I rationalize it, but if I had my way, if you intentionally "went native" I'd give you some benefit to that. That's another reason why I really like the Ki Power perks being able to be activated after the damage total has been generated. It opens up the possibility of a PP real...

Good. That's one of the only mechanics that PP has going for it.

Re: Different Contradictions in one action

So I guess there's some sort of tell when someone who has Ki Power perks has them while making an attack? Because the only way I can explain Focused Strike or Ki Strike causing contradictions even if the player has zero intention of activating them on that attack is if they're somehow always on.

Re: Different Contradictions in one action

Does a Storm Knight who has Righteousness contradict on every melee attack even when Righteousness isn't active (for example, while fighting Cyberpapal Stormtroopers in the Living Land)? If Radiant activates at the start of a fight outside of Aysle, does that mean every roll they make that fight is ...

Re: Old School Perspective

Players make their characters based on the rules in the book and (reasonably) expect to be able to do the thing the rules say they can do. This is why after gaming for 25+ years I'll still post on forums and ask for the official way things work. I've played in way too many games where the GM will s...

Re: Fires of Ra Discussion and Questions

My players very rarely use any attack options, I think it's because they don't know what most of them are... so I'm going to create a A5 handout and laminate it so they have a reference ... a "mini player screen". point out how powerful Player's Call is, too. All it takes is one Outstandi...

Re: Fires of Ra Discussion and Questions

My players are playing all Nile characters and fought Queen Sekana last night, they couldn't wound her at all, one party death. In desperation one of the characters did a called shot with his .45 to disarm her from the bow. After a bad die roll, using possibilities, hero and drama cards it work...

Re: House Rules

If I ever run I'm nerfing falling damage. A 30 foot drop being more effective attack than most of the weapons in the book doesn't feel particularly cinematic to me and I won't have to worry about using kluge after kluge to keep players from finding new and interesting ways to drop people.
