Re: Adjusted DN vs Difficulty Modifiers

I tend to stick with DN targets, except when I have thrown other complicating matters in. I.E you want to jump from one ledge to another in driving rain. Do I apply a DN 14 or a DN 10 with a -4 penalty for the driving rain? Depends if I want that driving rain to be a factor elsewhere. Like they are ...

Re: Maps and blips? How useful?

I use the maps but not the blips. It helps give my players a sense of the scene and frequently will give them ideas about crazy stunts to use during them. The blips occasionally find use for grouping badguys. I.e I'll have a bunch of shocktrooper token to represent how many there are and as they tak...

Re: Pacifist Companions and attacks

If something happened where the PC was unconscious, could not give commands, and suddenly the animal was acting on its own initiative, then the PC isn’t responsible. But in that case the animal should be under the GM’s control as an independent NPC. And therein lies some wonderful angst for the cha...

Re: Pacifist Companions and attacks

Personally I agree with Wakashani here. By using companions to perform attacks it feels very much like rules lawyering around the intent behind Pacifist. After all I don't think most generals are considered pacifists, but they don't actually commit the violence those under their command do. However ...

Re: Experienced Character and Funds?

When I started out my group with a side adventure for a little change I let them take 1 non-standard item as a freebie.

You need to trust in your group that they won't abuse it, but I found they mainly took small items from other cosms based on their backstories.

Re: Recovery

I would say it down to different situations. 2 shock every minute = you are out combat and presumably doing light duties, walking, etc. 1 turn for 2 shock = you are in combat but keeping your head down and nothing but catching your breath. No shock for 30 min while KOd = Have you seen what I am like...

Re: Bless & Defenses

They should go up as they are not derived stats in the same way as Toughness and Shock are.

They are skill totals which are effectively the DN for the enemy.

Re: Faith & Transformation

I would say yes. Their new reality doesn't accept their being an Optant or Gotak.
They would convert to a similar equivalent in their new reality. A cyberpriest or druid for example.

They might still have faith but it won't be the same Faith...
