Re: Things you'd like to know about Pan-Pacifica

I'm interested in more development on Social Perks, particularly the Wealthy tree - PP and CP are definitely the two Cosms where that applies most. I don't really see it coming back in Eternity, but one thing I really loved in oTorg was the actual rules for combating Kanawa in the stock market -- am...

Re: Aysle Sourcebook Q&A Thread

Not if they really want to be a Mathematician or Engineer, though. My understanding of Instinctive Magic, though, was absolutely not that you're using actual spells to defend yourself, but just... well, instinctive magic. If it's Apportation maybe you nudge the bullet to a slightly different angle, ...

Re: Lowest Armor value ? Confused by wording

Again I find the wording used very confusing as it can be interpreted as needing to apply a lower version of the Armor bonus while in reality you just ignore the Armor bonus to TOU unless in Full Body armor. It is plausible, and may become moreso as we get more books, that someone could have like, ...

Re: Lowest Armor value ? Confused by wording

I'm very confused by regular reference by spell, elemental effects or monster abilities to the "lowest/worst Armor value". The reason is that TorgE does not have an Armor value but a Toughness value. I think it's also worth noting that TorgE definitely does have an Armor value, which gene...

Re: Aysle Sourcebook Q&A Thread

Soft kitty, warm kitty, lethal ball of fur. Happy kitty, deadly kitty, purr, murder, purr. I was a little bit surprised by the way spell specialization works. I guess I do still think there should be options to specialize in a specific casting Skill - to be a Diviner, Conjurer, Abjurer, or Apporter,...

Re: Aysle Review and Balance Comments

I think... I mean, Rabbitball or Deanna can weigh in more officially when they have a chance, but that can't be the intention, can it? The way Backlash is covered in the rules is a little weird. The term is used pretty consistently except in the rules that talk about it most directly, where, for all...

Re: Aysle Sourcebook Q&A Thread

The Scholar's Backpack is a cursed item weighing 200 pounds that is constantly filled by six Trapper Keepers and a 3-inch-thick book titled Ye Science Of Earth that you will never, ever, use. Not even once. Are you saying that spells bought after this perk are Spellbook spells and use the rules from...

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

I wouldn't compare magically Charming someone to full-on mind control in the first place. Off hand, with the skill-and-axiom parameters you're looking for, I'd suggest a Charm spell that makes Persuasion rolls against the target Favored - either with a duration of Concentration, or for a Scene so lo...
