Re: Blade Runner Inspiration: the novels? Comics? Other?

Not sure it's worth picking up alone for this, but a good resource is Ron Edward's Sorcerer's Soul for his game Sorcerer. It's got a detailed section on taking detective fiction like Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett, et al and breaking the stories down into constituent parts to run as an RPG scena...

Re: Early Access Feedback - Personal/Vehicles Armor is Useless

IIRC, it doesn't take very long (in game) to don armor. I see it more like digging a vest out of your vehicle when you're about to go into a building full of baddies. The penalties generally won't be as big a deal if you're not wearing it all the time, and the bit of protection might be nice. I do ...

Re: Early Access Feedback - Personal/Vehicles Armor is Useless

Another potential option I was running around my head is that armor reduces the size of the crit die. So D armor doesn't reduce at all, C armor reduces once, B armor reduces it twice, and A armor reduces it three times. Anything that's reduced below a D6 can't do crits at all against this armor. Th...

Re: Early Access Feedback - Personal/Vehicles Armor is Useless

Firstly, this game doesn't have individual body hit locations (T2K have), having a fixed armour rating would mean that if you hit, it is assumed to hit the armour (since it is a fixed value and would always be applied). Secondly, the uncertainty is also part of the game. You can't be sure if your b...

Re: Early Access Feedback - Personal/Vehicles Armor is Useless

"Also, why roll for armor? If the goal of Blade Runner is to streamline the rules, why not just use static armor values like in T2K? Please just use the T2K approach to armor and critical hits. It's simpler and it works. No need to reinvent the wheel here. Thanks." Second the original pos...

Automatic Weapons cause Stress

I'm unclear if the rule on p.70 for full automatic fire causing 1 stress is something that can be reduced by an Insight roll? I take it this is the case, as it's presumably a stressful situation? If so, adding it to the list on p.75 would make this clearer I think. Also, presumably the stress gained...
