Re: Worst Psychic power...

Storytelling gold! The moment a system tells me that storytelling gold costs more char-advancement-resource-wise than actual efficiency , I know that it's a bad system in at least one regard. And you are fully correct, from your standpoint. From the standpoint of others... it's storytelling gold. ;...

Re: Worst Psychic power...

It costs 20 points. For something that does about the same damage as Smite. And that takes 5 hits until an enemy gets in trouble. I was thinking for PCs, not NPCs. For NPCs? Makes sense. I can see your point on the PC vs NPC. Smite seems to be the better (min/max) option. But, that's no fun for you...

Re: Worst Psychic power...

I'll bite... No, I don't really see a problem. There is one you may have in mind specifically, I believe though. (Hence the post.) Cost on Soul Shrivel seems about right, considering the decreased cost to cause extra mortal wounds. Range is mostly irrelevant in RPG scale. The corruption test is fun;...

Re: Wrath & Glory no longer listed on Ulisses North America Homepage

This is the only known site for Wrath & Glory. It had not been updated since the release of the game, and no information has been given officially by Ulisses. There have been no updates, and no communication as when to expect any.

Re: Escalation Tier Bonus Dice

Oh, well, then you can max out Defence with Uncanny Defence, Sidestep and Dedicant! Can you take Dedicant twice even? Once for "Uncanny Defence" and once for "Sidestep"? I'd say yes, because "Dedicant (Ability)" would be two different Talents ;) What say you? You canno...

I think MitchellTF might have misspoke here (easy to do) and meant Uncanny <Trait> in this instance. That trait of course bing Defense.

Re: Escalation Tier Bonus Dice

MitchellTF, glad you have some options at your disposal. Glad to help in any way. :)

But as far as the game is concerned the Stat boosts are totally legal. No cap to them seems to be in place. Although, you could cap them if you wish in your games.

Re: Escalation Tier Bonus Dice

I can see how the Defense bonuses can add up real fast. You as a GM have a few options to counter this kind of challenge. It will take a little effort and "out of the box" thinking. Patience and planning are virtues against those that wish to break the game. ;) 1) Don't forget about Mobs a...

Threatening Tasks (General Questions)

Hello all. I started this new topic about Threatening Tasks because the other thread was very specific. First, a little background. I GM a great group of friends twice a month here in my hometown. We are wrapping up the first chapter of Dark Tides ; "Descent". Last session we went through ...
