Re: Safe Casting

Thanks for all the replies, still kind of not clicking with me yet. Kind of frustrating as I am generally a clever enough guy. I would also agree that the whole magic system on the whole could be worded a little better, or have a few more examples written out in the handbook. Don't be too harsh on ...

Re: Safe Casting

Firstly, instead of tokens use dice, simples.

Secondly, you don’t roll a dice for the increase in power level granted by ingredients.  You only roll dice equal to the number of willpower used.
Tokens can be anything ;)

You're right, my bad!

Re: Safe Casting

The system definitely is either not explained very well, either it's a bit too convoluted. I find especially confusing that part  " If you cast a spell at a lower rank than your talent rank for the discipline, you may opt to roll one less die for every point of difference. " It could have been worde...

Re: Whoa! Some big rules changes in your inbox

Hmm does that mean that the GM no longer uses WP at all?
Yup. No pool.
So, NPC can't push rolls either?

Re: What have you created for Forbidden Lands?

I'm using simpler rules to speed up combat (felt there were way too many rolls : roll for attack, roll for push, opponent roll dodge/parry, armor). most up-to-date version :  https://docs.google.com/document/d/1yH2wCvLE5XKVQ7y4kx4E5smDK5REEYk-bQS7rZl_BnI/edit?usp=sharing Initiative & turn order GM d...

I wouldn't use that (I don't like the idea of having to track an increasing penalty), but it's certainly also a good alternative!

Rules hack : no action economy, minimal GM rolls, simpler actions, turn order/initiative

So, I like the YZ engine but being a huge fan of PbtA games, I stopped thinking in terms of rounds and number of actions and such.  I just can't go back to it, I find it unnatural and awkward. I especially don't like the whole tracking of fast/slow actions (I know they suggest the cards to track tha...

Re: Consumables

I think it's important to only use the consumables system when interesting or dramatically correct. If you can plan your spacewalk or hike, have nothing weird happen, and finish on time, you shouldn't even have to roll. You're supposed to roll for air every turn, so how could you ever spend a shift...
