Re: Aysle Cosm Cards Booster Deck

Not really, the drama deck seems pretty balanced with some nice niche things for magic, miracles, oh and breaking potions :) I do like the exploding villains. Having run the system for a few months, I haven't really noticed a significant difference between the dramatic and standard lines on the dram...

Re: What do you want to know about the Cyberpapacy

Just been thinking about encryption and the Cyberpapacy - essentially quantum processing will pretty much eliminate encryption (lattice and other theoretical encryptions aside) so by tech 26 that should have already been achieved. If however encryption and decryption was miracle based then that is s...

Re: Active Defense FAQ entry clarification question

There are two issues that are being entangled. 1. Could a shield add to defence when Deflection is being used? 2. When does the everlaw notice a contradiction? Deflection states: While making an Active Defense, the hero gets a +2 bonus to dodge against any ranged attacks involving projectiles. But a...

Re: Active Defense FAQ entry clarification question

Deflect  Prereq: Dexterity 8+. This power intercepts thrown objects, arrows, or bullets. While making an Active Defense, the hero gets a +2 bonus to dodge against any ranged attacks involving projectiles. The trappings of this power could be a strong wind, bulletproof shielding, or even just luck....

Re: Aysle Sourcebook Q&A Thread

This may have been answered elsewhere but I haven't spotted it. Necrotic Aura: The necrotic spell that animated these creatures reduces the damage inflicted by non-magical attacks by half. How is this calculated? When do you half the damag, e.g. in the case of 20 damage total vs 8 toughness? Before ...

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: Beta Doesn't seam to be a big enough deal

I'd think that's the sort of thing that's up to each individual table and group and doesn't need to take up page count. It's one of those things that becomes clearer after you have run the game for a while but the greater perspective would have need nice to know at the beginning and to be honest wo...

Re: Beta Doesn't seam to be a big enough deal

Darrell explained the ideology behind xp awards when we chatted to him at the UK games expo. It was a concern that veteran gamers simply didn’t have as much time to game as back when we were all teenagers and in our 20’s (at the time of oTorg). As such the game design took this into consideration in...
