Re: YZE adaptation for Twilight: 2000 gameplay

I've been listening to an audio version of a WW2 book ('The Cauldron' - about the 1st Airborne in Arnhem that was written by a veteran of that operation in the 60s) and there's a bit in the one of the early chapters that is exactly this - a couple of paras from the platoon which is the focus of the...

Re: Regarding Skill checks and also Healing

Hm, that's interesting - I must admit that I read the rules as saying that if Broken you either: - receive Healing, recover Attribute points. or - take 1d6 hours, recover and then regain 1 attribute point For Death, if Lethal you must receive Healing. If you recovered yourself then you can try to He...

Re: Anyone tried nerfing Lucky 3?

I quite like the idea that at L3 you roll for crit twice, choose which one you want and can then reverse the roll using L2

Re: Anyone tried nerfing Lucky 3?

(Caveat: I've not seen Lucky 3 used in a game) For someone to get that Talent they are potentially spending 3+6+9 XP = 18 XP, which is quite a decent amount, and it only mitigates against criticals when the PCs STR is broken. Even if you start with Lucky 1 you still will spend 15 XP on it. You could...

Re: Regarding Skill checks and also Healing

On the discord, people (me included) mixed in their own interpretations and their own GM discretion. I tried to be as clear from my view as I could in this answer. Appreciate your clarity. I'm interested in what the rules actually say as opposed to peoples' interpretations of what they say. But you...

Re: Regarding Skill checks and also Healing

I believe the intention is that you can help or you can try. Not both. In helping you are already trying. Once a heal is successful it's done and no further attempts can be made.
Agree completely

Re: Regarding Skill checks and also Healing

Ok, so multiple attempts can be made on a Heal roll to recover Broken PCs. That's fine and is consistent with the rules as far as I can see. It's just that with the other conversation there seemed to be many people stating the opposite - only one roll allowed. I've never thought that the need for a ...

Regarding Skill checks and also Healing

Ok, after some Discord discussion, I have a question about skill rolls, rerolls and helping (this was initially triggered regarding Heal, but it seems more generally applicable): Context: p46: Only One Chance: "Once you have rolled for a skill you may not roll again, you need to try something differ...

Re: New Player with Questions!

(though the Peddler talent Pack of Many Things has some pretty awesome utility in almost any situation). I was thinking about the Pack of Many Things talent - interestingly it says that you need to track what has been pulled out and it can't be put back. So can you give these things to other people...
