Re: Aysle Preview #2 - Magic (Part 1)

I'm guessing Original Torg's Stymied... lose your first re-roll (10, 20, Possibility, etc).

Re: Where can I use Pulp Powers and Ki Powers?

They can be used but are Contradictions. The Reality Mechanics here are that these abilities are made possible by the World Laws of Nile Empire and Pan Pacifica and are not tied directly to Axioms. As you pointed out, one caveat is that weird science devices of the Nile Empire function without contr...

If you have three spread-out targets and you want to Melee all three (attack; withdraw/move; attack; withdraw/move; attack) and you don't kill any of them are you Vulnerable or Very Vulnerable?
