Re: Polyhedral dice,

The pens cost €2 and €3 each here in Europe on Amazon.de, so not expensive for me.  Looks like they're about $10 each in the US. That's so strange. I swear that when I looked them up on Amazon a few days ago all I could find was the markers for $40!!! And now I find them for the prices you are sayi...

Re: Hidden Combos

I finally puled the trigger and back Forbidden Lands . There's too much goodness here. So for the first time I posted on the Kickstarter Page -- about the Hidden Combos. I'm going to repost here, since I remember this is where discussions are supposed to go. This is a follow up of my previous post o...

Re: Hidden Combos

I think you can describe with flourish what you will be after showing your combat maneuver card. We played Streetfighter and that worked very well. What I don’t understand yet is that you have one slow and one fast action. And in melee combat you use your two actions for the hidden combo. Is one ma...

Re: Polyhedral dice,

I looked at the Chessex and weighed the costs. And went for my own. I have 5 or 6 players at my table regularly, and I wanted everyone to have a set of 5 dice per category (attribute, gear, skill), plus a set of my own. That is 105 dice total. If i customized one of the colors with face the total is...

Re: Hidden Combos

I'm tentatively curious about this. I can see the appeal of such a system. But I also like the quick resolution that MYZ already offers.  I can see the Hidden Combo use for significant duels or fights. But if one only uses it for significant duels or fights, then people won't be used to it (there wo...

Re: Polyhedral dice,

Getting "ultra-fine" sharpies in white/silver seems to be impossible (that color and size only come in paint-based markers). So I'll be getting black fine and silver fine markers (I'm also getting gold and bronze to see which of the metals looks best on black). I think fine will work. I'm going to u...

Re: Polyhedral dice,

9litttlebees, Thanks for that! I found a seller of blank d6s (yellow, green, and black) so I could make my own dice for MYZ.  They are on their way to me now, but I wasn't sure which markers to use. Now I do! I'm going to only mark the faces with symbols (Hit, Trauma, and Break), leaving all the oth...

Re: Character generation - half-things

At some point it becomes a matter of page count and resources used that could be applied to other things.

I say this as someone admittedly not sold on the who half-thing. But it is a concern nonetheless.
