Re: CotG Questions on bad air in the Cronus

Nicely done!  Great solution!  I will do that next time.  I was just beginning to wonder if MU/TH/UR would even wake the sleepers up while there wasn't a safe amount of air to breathe.

Thank you!

Re: CotG Questions on bad air in the Cronus - SPOILERS BELOW

Thanks Aramis.  I believe you are right.  The reason I asked is because in both of my games, the Cronus crew gets woken-up by MU/TH/UR well before anyone works on the scrubbers.  Theoretically, enduring these bad air STAMINA checks would spell trouble for the newly awoken Cronus crew.  There are onl...

CotG Questions on bad air in the Cronus

What happens to characters' and NPC's, not using a compression suit in the Cronus before the air scrubbers are fixed, that fail their STAMINA check for bad air (per page 127)?

Re: Lucas Name Change

I felt that way at first, but then I started thinking  'Lucas' was the character's last name or just a code name.  Nearly all of the other characters and NPC are referenced by their last name.

Re: Who's gotten it to table so far?

I have two different groups playing it right now.  Both groups took about 3.5 to finish Act 1.  All of my players are very experienced role players and have played several other systems over the years. The rules are easy to learn and explain.  That part doesn't take long.  Describing the setting tak...

Re: Cold-Blooded Talent

I think the key thing I got from this, is that a character will need to fail an Empathy roll in order to Coup De Grace another human being in the game.  In any case, the killing character will gain STRESS for trying or actually doing it. This are important rules, even if none of the characters actua...

Re: First Aid

Think of the alien movies as well.  Which this scenario is like. Very few survived after being injured. In both the movies, and this game, the death of characters is fully expected. Also as mentioned before, this is a common limitation on medical treatment found in the other Fria Ligan games.  It is...

Re: Revealed Androids

No worries. For questions 1, 2, and 3 I would say the following - Once Lucas suffers enough damage to yield a critical result, before actually rolling it, I would reveal him as a android.  Then, per the rules, I would immediately make the additions to his stats and health.   Finally, I would continu...

Re: Several questions/clarifications

I have to say, all these questions suggest you're not trying hard enough to kill these characters off in various xeno-related and gruesome ways. I have now run  Chariot of the Gods  twice; both took about 4 to 4.5 hours total (all Acts) and no one ever got as far as making repairs. In the first gam...

Re: Several questions/clarifications

Thanks to both of you for your responses!  I recently ran Act 1 with a group of great players.  I'm hoping to finish the next two Acts in the next week or so. While playing I either had some of these situations arise, or I saw the potential for them to come up. 1) Heavy Machinery - I had one of my p...
