Re: The Feral Effects chart - does it need a tweak?

I would either say your players were very unlucky or their dice outright hate them.  The majority of Powers can only spend 1 FP at a time and if they came up 1’s that often, I would check the dice for bias.  It is possible for plastic dice to form “imperfections” when they are cast, especially in op...

Re: InterSpecies love?

In my setting there are a few rules regarding offspring:      1) Humanoids can mate with any other human-derivative but are infertile amongst themselves.  The species of the offspring always matches the non-Humanoid parent.      2) Mutant Animals always have offspring in sets of two.  The species al...

Re: Curbing/Challenging the Boss

As stated, sending ALL of your gang to do something leaves you (or if you accompany them, your stash) undefended which makes a great opportunity for another Boss (or even someone you previously targeted for extortion) to take advantage of.  Also, all non-PC gang members have stock statistics (core b...

Re: Slave vs Worker

My group has renamed the Role to Serf (all else remains the same with the additional requirement that the PC starts “in debt” to a Boss/Big Boss).  Slaves exist in the Zone but can be any Role (or even “no role”).  A Serf remains “in debt” until they buy the Talent that lets them choose a new Role (...

Re: Making Sense of Unusual Skill Usage in the ARK Development Layer

I may be misreading your response but it sounds like you're confusing the two aspects of Ark projects:  1) the PCs take on the role of Big Bosses/Faction leaders when proposing a new project but 2) are being themselves & using their own skills when actually working on (or working against) a specific...

Re: Mixing Mutant & Genlab together

Two follow up questions regarding Tainted Animals:    1) Is it necessary to separately track MP & FP or are they interchangeable for PCs like they are for the GM?  (Only rules I could find were in text box on MGA pg62 and specifically said "... for the GM")    2) When a Tainted Animal has four Mutat...

Re: Mixing Mutant & Genlab together

Excellent, thank you very much.  A follow up question, does it seem to work well having animals with rank and mutants without rank together?  I can see animals instinctively know their place within the pack/tribe/settlement but mutants(humans) without a rank must throw a wrench into that.  I picture...

Mixing Mutant & Genlab together

Looking to run a combined Mutant Year Zero/Genlab Alpha game and I came upon an issue that I know my players would run into.  What bonus or penalty to rank would an animal get for choosing a role from the base Mutant Year Zero book (Stalker, Fixer, Boss, etc)?   Would a tainted animal start to degen...
