Re: Cosm specific Possibility energy

I have to necromance an old thread, but anyone have any thoughts as to what the other cosm possibilities should do? It's tough to have this special stuff for just 2 cosms. They don't seem to be following a specific theme, so your guess is as good as mine. I can see the value of this for flavor, but...

Re: Different Contradictions in one action

Must have missed something: Focused Strike and Ki Strike are only tested as contradictions as Surges because they're activated after you roll damage. How exactly does this happen? The surge roll is made at the start of the turn but the activation is after the action. Is it simply the case of having...

Re: Aysle and the Ecology of Dragons

My thinking on it goes something like this: to me, Aysle is best run as a fairy tale realm, rather than a D&D realm. It takes inspiration from both, and from other sources, but primarily IMC I like to think of it as a fairy tale. My thinking is that one consequence of thinking of it as a fairy t...

Re: Average result on the bonus chart?

I did the math back when the system first debuted, out of curiosity. The answer is that the average bonus from a single roll with no special modifiers, additions, weirdness, etc. is -1. Pretty harsh, but that's why Storm Knights have all sorts of tricks to weight things in their favor. I saw that b...

Re: Average result on the bonus chart?

It's complicated. That complication is nice because it conceals the actual probabilities from the players, which increases tension IMO. Rerolls on 10's and 20's do skew things, and a chart of the probabilities of each roll are probably more useful than an average. Luckily I have that figured out on ...

Re: Vital Shot Feasability

Then there's things like plants, slimes, spirits... Do you think that called shots for vital areas should be a stock choice that is always available to Storm Knights (unless specifically mentioned) or should it be GMs prerogative that no this animated door has no weak points? Or should certain &quo...

Re: [Glory Locations] In case folks are interested in sharing

At a motorsports speedway turned into a fortress and concentration camp for "sympathizers", humans gone native, outside of Nashville: A Nameless Storm Knight from Orrorsh (reports on his identity have been inexplicably lost) persuaded a local militia group, the Bama Boys, to disregard the ...

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...
