Re: Anyone tried nerfing Lucky 3?

L3 : you choose the numbers freely Bold emphasis is mine. That's L2. So L3 has to be better than that. No it doesn't. It just has to add to it. If you then allow the player to move the result 1 step up or down the table from where ever it lands you give the player a choice of 3 different results. T...

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
Isn't that L2?

Re: How to cope with overpowered PCs?

Or...

Flip the numbers around like Lucky 2 if you wish, and pick any of the injuries in the three rows above (or one to two rows only if you wish for some lethality to remain).

For even more flexibility, you can spend a number of WP equal to each row thereafter.

Re: How to cope with overpowered PCs?

How about....

Lucky only works for the first crit injury in a combat encounter?

Or, if that's still too "OP".....

The first crit injury in a day?

That way.... "agency" is preserved, GM adheres to "League principles", and Lucky is a worthwhile purchase without being overpowered.

Re: How to cope with overpowered PCs?

Play how ever you like. The GM book for forbidden lands has a side bar specifically talking about death and failing forward. If you wish to ignore that good gm advice then have fun.
I know. I quoted it in this forum.

Re: How to cope with overpowered PCs?

I am not going to keep talking in circles with you about this. Try to take it all in. 1) It's a feels bad mechanic. 2) it strips THAT player of THEIR agency with a, kick them while they are down chance that they just flat out die after already surviving that chance. 3) If they have spent points on ...

Re: How to cope with overpowered PCs?

Well, that's what they paid for, didn't they? And I'm saying that sure, you won't risk any serious injuries, but that's assuming you don't get killed right after. :D

Re: How to cope with overpowered PCs?

Let me try to explain it this way. I am a player. I am in the fight. Because I am in the fight I get to make choices. I use my actions and I suffer the consequences good or bad. If in the course of the fight I end up broken that is a result (at least in part) of my choices. And the consequence is t...

Re: How to cope with overpowered PCs?

Also, don't forget that the rest of the party has agency as well. They can do something to turn the tide, and perhaps distract or taunt the enemy, or even grapple with or disarm them, thus buying time for the broken pc to crawl away.
