Re: Telekinesis errata

The arm thing is the kind of random non-clarification clarification that leads to boneheaded GM decisions like "You can only reach 9 feet up with your arms stretched over your head, so you can't use Telekinesis to push the button that's 10 feet off of the ground." As the GM in question, I...

Re: Home brew Cosm ideas

Roll a d3-1 (d6 divide by 2 and round up) for the tens digit and a d10 for the ones. Reroll if you get 00.

Re: Reuse or recycle Stelae?

I'd say that the energy a High Lord has to expend to recover the stelae doesn't make it a viable option. You basically have to break it and remake it, so why not just make a brand new one. Otherwise... "Welcome newandvaluedcustomer to CRAZY HASSAN's Used Stelae (and Camels)! Better than new! On...

Re: How many bullets does a Storm Knight carry?

If I really wanted things to be granular, like when the Storm Knights are in the Blasted Land, the Living Land, or lost in the Sahara, I would probably hand them physical tokens, 1 per Strength point, and tell them to assign them to their gear and ammo. Then whenever circumstances dictates that they...

Re: Is there a demolitions skill?

Storm Knights usually have trouble keeping things from exploding, not the other way around. ;)

Of course, for stopping a bomb from going off, we would use a dramatic skill resolution.

Re: Card Play and Using Possibilities Between Players

Conversely, several sessions with no disconnections and yesterday our cleric disconnected 6 times, four of them on back to back rolls - disconnect, reconnect, disconnect on action, reconnect etc. The player was really frustrated but I was like "it's not the game's fault your die has decided to...

Re: Nile Empire Preview #5 - Amaatism

You probably want to put some limitiation on Dream. Otherwise some wiseass will cast it every night on all characters and 'save up' DSR completed steps. 'So I've had Dream cast on me every night this week I can complete the next DSR without help... PC Bob, what about you? How many steps can you com...
