Re: Aysle Kickstarter Launches July 2!

I received my box in Connecticut on Saturday. Just as an indicator.

Re: Law of Drama

You could use the ABCDs on the cards and maybe have them come on cards with As if you want them frequent, or Bs or Cs less frequently. Even do sort of a GM-style DSR where A is the first one, then a B is the next, etc etc This is awesome. I used this idea last night in Act 3 of Fires of Ra. It work...

Law of Drama

Hi, all. This week I am running my third session of Fires of Ra and am definitely looking forward to it. However, looking back over the last couple sessions, I feel like I'm missing on my introduction of obstacles into scenes. I often feel like there's plenty of action already built into a lot of sc...

Out of the Way!

Nile Empire Cosm Card "Out of the Way!": Play during a chase once someone reaches Step C . Everyone in the chase loses two Steps. If that would put a participant below Step A make a test as for a Dilemma or be KOed. All Storm Knights gain 1 Possibility. Ok I feel like I'm missing something...

Re: Reconnecting Outside of Combat

I just can't find the words to explain why or how much I dislike the idea of, "Ok, combat's over so everyone now Reconnects, pick up your cards and discard down to..." This is where i am as well. It seems very clear to me that if you have players auto-reconnect at the end of combat that y...

Re: Reconnecting Outside of Combat

I just don’t get why you’d want to. Well, because I keep reading about players and GMs who think it's fun when characters disconnect in a battle and are forced to improvise weapons and defenses in order to contribute. Sure, it stinks when they can't use Possibilities, but this feels like one of the...

Re: Reconnecting Outside of Combat

Try it. If it works for you great! If for some reason it doesn't, just tell your group, that didn't go as well as i thought, next time we'll try option B. Yes, well, I did that. I thought it was reasonable, though I got some pushback from my players who felt it was somewhat punishing. Thus, I'm hop...

Re: Reconnecting Outside of Combat

FWIW, once Dramatic (card flip) Time stops I have anyone who's still disconnected make one more roll to reconnect. Any result other than a 1 means they reconnect without issue before anything else significant happens. If they roll a 1 they take the usual downsides (loss of a Reality add or Transfor...

Re: Fish out of water

As long as the players make some sort of attempt at disguising their Eidenos member, I handwave it. It's only when being disguised actually matters (infiltrating an enemy stronghold through guile, keeping your head down because you're wanted etc.) that I actually worry about it and have them make d...
