Re: Telekinesis errata

I am having real trouble with the idea that my TK suddenly stops working after 8ish feet off the ground. I can't think of a single example from anywhere that I have seen TK used fantasy/sci-fi/supers where it works like that. Regarding this part, I believe it is a game mechanic that is purely a bal...

Re: Reuse or recycle Stelae?

Some time ago on another world: .... "Sire, we are proceeding on schedule, almost. " The Gaunt Man's gaze turned slowly to the sagging pile of ooze in charge of stelae production and just stared. "err....ummm" gurgling noises started deep in it, as he realized that it was in trou...

Re: Beta Doesn't seam to be a big enough deal

Beta is a little weird because the GM gets a big power boost while players just get access to powerful new perks which they may not really want or need, or be able to afford right away. So it can feel like a nerf for some a buff or a wash for others. But in reality it's mostly just a milestone. You'...

Re: Timeline

Very, very nice work. I looked into doing this at one point and just couldn't figure out a good way.

Is that because of a later preview?

Or is it because of the PTSD from your last encounter with it? :-)

We're going to preview it later. Well...the adventure anyway: Revenge of the Carredon.

Re: How do people handle new, more specialized Perks coming out?

I let them rework their characters if it makes sense, but my players don't like doing that and would rather keep the continuity strong and just not use them or wait until they can get the new stuff. <shrug>

Re: Player's Call: Locking out abilities on PCs

Yeah, I think there is some reality bending going on too, in addition to the morale breaking, etc, when a villain uses Gloater, etc. I sort of liken it taking away possibilities.

Re: Aysle Preview #4 - Uthorion

perhaps Uthorion will continue his body swapping ways to keep the Storm Knights guessing. I think that would be awesome. Narrator: "He does." The most exciting reveal is that Uthorion is 100% in charge of his Darkness Device, Drakacanus, this time around. Is Drakacanus still the Obsidian ...

Re: Orrorsh should drop a Maelstrom Bridge into New Mexico - Old West / Horror

Yeah, some differences though that make it very interesting to me: Yeah it's part of the USA, but it doesn't have the strongest cultural integration with the rest of the country. It's a unique culture with a history of superstition and religion. Voodoo much? And it's close to Houston, the new capita...
