Re: Anyone tried nerfing Lucky 3?

The issue is less that the GM wants to be antagonistic and more that by Lucky 3 that player is circumventing an entire mechanic of the game that I would argue is also one of it's most appealing core features. Risk. Head wounds with no recovery time and no actual negative effect 1) make helmets loose...

Re: Regarding Skill checks and also Healing

I believe the intention is that you can help or you can try. Not both. In helping you are already trying. Once a heal is successful it's done and no further attempts can be made.

Re: House Rules for Bolas, Nets and Whips

So for starters. Bolas are a throwing weapon and would follow any rules for things like throwing knives etc for ranges. They also absolutely dont require 2 hands. Using bolas i would say you have 2 or 3 options. 1) go for the head. It deals damage 1 bashing. 2) go for the body. It restricts use of a...

Re: Corona Virus and the Bitter Reach Kickstarter

So i emailed in and got a response next day. My entire order is on hold for the reprint of the core box set. Im personally fine with that, but it is different from what they specified before about it being 2 shipments. Dont know if anyone else is in the same boat.

Re: New Player with Questions!

1) It's not unlike DnD in that there is an action economy. But unlike DnD where you get a move, a action, and a free action + reactions you just get a slow and a fast. In other Year Zero games these are assigned points (slow actions are 2 points fast actions are 1 point) and then players have 3 poin...

Re: Mad idea: give out all legends in one go - anyone tried it?

I started a campaign by giving the players each 2 + their lore skill legends. Some were about items, and some locations, and some people depending on how their characters and backstories fleshed out. I.E. an Elf knew the legend of what Stenegrast (I know thats spelled wrong) was, a Aslene knew of Ze...

Re: Druid Healing changing the flavor of the System?

Personally I use a modified version of the GM having a willpower pool that is closer to Darkness Points in Coriolis. I like the idea of the GM having a meta-currency that restricts them but also opens up options like triggering traps/environmental hazards/monster attacks. (when fighting a monster I ...

Re: Real Earth Archetypes

Also, just because someones heritage means they come from a racial group that tends to do a lot with horses doesn't mean that the person themselves have any exposure to horses. I would always shy away from skill bonuses as a racial feature that isn't a way to represent a biological function.

Re: Corona Virus and the Bitter Reach Kickstarter

I am in the same boat. No notification yet. I am sure mine will end up split because I ordered the 2nd printing of the core book. If by friday I don't get a notification that the first wave has shipped I intend to start writing emails.
