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

Have to admit I struggled with being able to generate 10 separate cosm cards (Probably why I lost out in that category). The World laws are good though as they give a stronger feeling for the cosm and how it is intended to be played. Agreed. I find it much easier to come up with a few really unique...

Sure, why not. Here's what I randomly rolled:

MAGIC: 8; TECH: 25; SPIRIT: 24; SOCIAL: 25

Re: Make Earth Glorious Again

For ease of reading I will now use spoiler tags. St Petersburg, Russia, Core Earth, Day 5 Leonid Slovokin, Alicia Kalachnikova, Elizabeth Poliakova Leonid hit the brakes as hard as he could. The truck’s wheels screeched and Elizabeth, still on top of the truck, barely managed to hold on. They had ex...

Re: Does this make sense as a use of the Dramatic Skill Resolution

Just an idea to turn it into a DSR: make the road too accidented to be usable. Step 1: Find nearby materials to repair the road (Find or Survival) Step 2: Actually repair the road (Science or approppriate Profession) Step 3: Drive the vehicles through (Land Vehicles) Step 4: Escape the ambush (Land ...

Re: Extra effort in combined actions

My previous understanding is that Combined Actions is when NPCs are acting together or helping PCs: they don't roll they just add a static bonus depending on their numbers. When PCs want to help other PCs (or NPCs for that matter), they have to roll for Extra Effort to determine for how many additio...

Re: Make Earth Glorious Again

Cairo, Egypt, Nile Empire, Day 6 Scarlet Gloves, Shielding Sun, Amethyst Ninja Music and the laughter of people greeted the Hargreeves siblings as they entered the Grand Casino of Cairo, or the “Bazzino” as people liked to call it (but never within a Baz familymember’s earshot). The building had ju...

Re: Nile Empire Traps

In the same vein I've had players using magic/psionic/miracle skills to assist another PC for Extra Effort (I've ruled that any skill could be used for extra effort as long as it's justified/explained how it helps the action as a whole). For example a cyberwitch starting a fire with Conjuration to p...

Re: Make Earth Glorious Again

Toulouse, France, Cyberpapacy, Day 7 Aurore, Damien Monnet The Resistance radio blazed some incoherent mumbo-jumbo about avenues walking up produce aisles, which Aurore and Damien dutifully wrote down. A quick trip through the cypher-book later the message was understood. The Resistance had located...

Re: Fav Nile Delphi Mission?

I love "The Serial Gambit". The beginning is hilarious and the rest seems so very Nile to me.

Re: Different Contradictions in one action

I'd consider the action "block strike with a power dagger" as a whole for contradictions, so 4-case for me.
