Re: Optional Heavy Machine Guns for Detective Special

Given the three standard armaments listed for the LAPD spinner are the same two plus a missile launcher and the three Vehicle Weapons listed are basically these three I think it's obvious that the Autocannon is the machine guns. "Twin .50 caliber heavy machinegun" would not really fit in t...

Re: Rules Clarification: Smoking and Drinking

Kirdan - good stuff ! I am going to steal yours but turn the tables - it only works if you are working overtime. It feels more on brand like this - dysfunctional coping by wearied cops….
The problem with that is it makes Married to the Job pretty pointless.

Query re the Niander/Amos character

Just prepping to run on Saturday, and I noticed that the Niander/Amos character has a Blaster listed as gear but no Firearms skill - all the other Angels have Firearms A, so I'm thinking he should too. Anyone seen anything on this?

Re: Feedback Thread for Coriolis: The Great Dark Quickstart

I like the single action, but would prefer blocking to be called defending (because in armed combat when you defend yourself it's more often a deflection than a block) and to work like Bladerunner in that if the defender gets more successes they can do damage, as this reflects the way a skilled figh...

Re: Feedback Thread for Coriolis: The Great Dark Quickstart

Since no-one else has I'll point out Page 15 says five pre gen characters but there are only four?

Re: Full-auto and pray

1 is the only way that makes sense to me. You make the initial roll (at a penalty of -2), then you can Pray if you wish to re-roll the non-6s. Only after that do you start rolling single dice. You can't re-roll failed single dice due to the prayer, and you have the option of stopping rolling single ...

Re: Need Help wih reworking of Path of the Killer

I thought rank 2 was OK, but changed rank 3 to: When you make a Stealth roll, you can spend WP to buy additional X.
I don't use reforged power, and prefer just 3 ranks in talents.

Re: Declared defense = action?

Page 91-92 PHB: "When you attack an aware opponent in close combat, they can DODGE or PARRY to avoid being hit. The defender must declare if they are going to DODGE or PARRY before you roll for your attack. DODGE and PARRY are called reactive actions, since they are performed immediately, and ...

Re: Declared defense = action?

Following the game mechanics' logic a defender does only have to declare a counter-action to an attack if the latter is successful. If the attack misses the defender IMHO does not have to waste a defensive action, or declare something before the attacker rolls any dice. After all, all defensive act...

Re: Declared defense = action?

My answer is that declaring the action is your character devoting some of their attention to that thing in a round, and rolling is irrelevant. We have the principle that you only roll when required, and an attacker making an attack which scores no success is an example of where the defender doesn't ...
