Re: Keta Kalles List / Living Land Miracles Perk Confusion

Wait. There's no subset of Faith? it's just … Faith, blank?

Holy cats.

Boy have *I* been doing things wrong!

(And now I wonder how the Cyberpapacy world law works when the actual faith of the miracle invoker is "hidden" that way. Hrm!)

Re: Is the base DC for swimming a 10?

All systems not in my bag of tricks.

Certainly going to have to work on that down the line.

(D&D, Champions, Shadowrun, Legend of the Five Rings, Original Torg… all very much of the "We have rules!" school. I'm old.) :D

Re: Is the base DC for swimming a 10?

Gotta get my head in the mindset. I'm used to rolling for *everything* and setting DCs around what normal people can do, then letting the heroes do more outrageous stuff because, you know, hero. Having things around like "Take 0" for an action that's fairly rote, I'm down for, but "Do...

Is the base DC for swimming a 10?

A silly question, I know, but I was looking over the swimming rules and they're kind of harsh. Pass a test to tread water or start to drown. Get a Superior result to move anywhere. That'd be a DC 15 Strength test (no skill to help you swim!) to, say, go from a splash off the diving board to the edge...

Re: The Nile Empire is Better at Everything

So, with Tarzan still bubbling in my head, and knowing that the Beta Primer gives some neat options for later on (Like tapping into Nile power), I decided to have a go at the popular view of the Lord of the Apes himself. This is very much intended to reflect how he's seen in the average person's hea...

Re: The Nile Empire is Better at Everything

Neither Tarzan or Doc are superhuman (well they're not meant to be but I think sometimes writers outside Burroughs or Dent forget). Doc also has a wide assortment of gadgets available to him. It's been awhile but isn't Tarzan at least as strong as a gorilla in the original stories? Wrestles big ani...

Re: The Nile Empire is Better at Everything

I'm liking this convo because it's giving me ideas of tweaks to language I should make. As I quoted, I already say something like this, but it might be good to directly and specifically address this to the player. Limitations are the cost for having better powers. If you don't pay the cost, you don...

Re: The Nile Empire is Better at Everything

The only two things that trip it up for me are Super Attribute and Super Skill. Super Attribute is kind of mimicked by other cosms, but they tend to be a boost to a single thematic attribute, rather than anything. It's *close* to being okay, but it also feels just a bit more … +1 to anything vs +1 t...

Dude.

Re: Beta Primers are out

"There's some kind of Reality nexus to the northeast. You don't know what it is, but it's powerful."

That'd be my call.

They wouldn't know what it *is* until they were close enough to actually see the thing.
