Re: magic: 15, tech: 24, spirit: 0, social: 21

I went off-piste a bit with this one. Religion often starts with the big question of where did we come from. Elementals know where they come from, Magic. So why need a god to complicate matters. So this cosm is built around the Elemental, rather than the human. The Tyrannies of Metal The first eleme...

Re: Nile Box

Just had my delivery email. Lets see if they actually follow instructions.
These couriers are better than some I've had to deal with in the past at least.

Re: Nile Box

Ooohh.. Did you get a notification it was coming from the courier or did it just land on your doorstep and you felt the Thud?

Re: magic: 15, tech: 24, spirit: 0, social: 21

When you look at marvel, Thor isn't a God, only a super advanced alien. Thor is actually a really good example of the problem here. The Asgardians know they aren't gods and it isn't clear if they believe in their own gods or not. But they know a lot of other races do believe they are gods putting t...

Re: magic: 15, tech: 24, spirit: 0, social: 21

Spirit 0 is really brutal, even worse than a low social axiom. Spirit 0: Gods, Spirituality, faith, and the afterlife aren't even concepts. To then square that with Magic 15: Communications with other dimensions is possible. I have a couple of ideas, but it is taking some mental contortions to justi...

Re: How do people handle new, more specialized Perks coming out?

A certain amount of respecing is fine in my games as long as it makes sense. We don't have any LL, NE or A characters so it hasn't been an issue, but I fairly easy with it. I have the advantage that my group is a dramatic troupe, if we had some of our old power gamers I would be a lot more cautious ...

Re: Aysle Preview #4 - Uthorion

...Maybe we had better skip this pesky parasite entirely and try disposing Drakacanus directly? (Easier said than done) Yeah, one of my players tried that last session. Player: "I cast mind blast on the stellae" GM: "Uh... OK. Roll attack." Doesn't bother checking roll "Rig...

Re: Transformation (what does it look like in your games?)

We run it that the memory adjusts to fit the new reality. So the British Core Earth Computer Student who has transformed now recalls long hours studying with a magical artifact to master source(code)ery. The memories are there but altered. The best example I can think of is like the Troll shaman alt...

Re: What defense do I use?

For me, it depends on the rifle and the way it's set up. (And, yes, I know the question is about the M-82. I'm being pedantic here.) I would allow an M-16 to be used interchangeably as a club and a rifle, particularly if it has a bayonet attached, as I know it's designed to be used like that. (Ther...
