Re: Lore Concern: Rep-Detect Unit/Blade Runner Position Timeline

Great point about replicants being illegal and Nexus 6 being off world. It's easy to say Deckard never encountered one. My canon has also always been that Deckard is a replicant, which makes Bryant explaining things to him make more sense, as well as some of the strange facial expressions Bryant ma...

Re: Blade Runner Replicants NPC's

Roy gave that awesome speech at the end, but he stilled mercilessly killed a lot of people, so low Empathy. I think the point of Roy’s character arc — and of much of the movie’s plot, come to think of it — pivots around what in game terms might be described in that Roy’s Empathy stat pretty much ho...

Re: BR Universe. Thoughts...

I doubt the shuttle was FTL capable - most settings with gate travel lack hyperdrives. (Stargate and B5 being notable exceptions) Even the ones that do have one clearly superior to the other.(SG1 gate is near instant, hyperspace is not)(B5 "hyperdrives" access the same hyperspace as gates ...

Re: Unclear: Blade Runner Partners?

Given the RPG timeframe - 2037 -- not the 2046 of the second movie -- and some real world tradition... Assuming LAPD keeps it's constitutional and traditional training... Currently Academy 6 months (Police Officer I) Field Training 18 months (Police Officer I) Police Officer II for at least another ...

Re: Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down?

The lack of inclusion of a sample case is also a minor issue. Just a quick comment on this - a full-size sample case is included in the Starter Set. Which had not hit my inbox when I wrote that. THe first email was, for whatever reason, just the corebook preview. The email with both wasn't received...

Re: Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down?

I like the dice mechanics of T2K 4e. It's biggest issue is the slowdown due to shifting sizes. this cures that. I'm not thrilled with the renaming of game system mechanics; one of the benefits of a multi-game engine is that the names stay the same. The inclusion of ranks and insignia of rank, but no...

Re: Early Access Feedback - Lore Concern (Positronic Brains)

Hi! Consistency with the source material is absolutely a priority. The term positronic was used in Hampton Fancher and David People's 1981 screenplay draft of Blade Runner, which is considered canon. That said, if the term causes confusion, we might consider removing it. It will, especially due to ...

Re: Why Use The T2K Dice System?

Does anyone know why Blade Runner will use T2K's stepped dice system? With T2K, this is necessary due to the addition of ammo dice ... but unless there's some extra special dice added in, this feels like a huge step backwards for an investigative game. The beauty of all the other Year Zero games is...

Re: Why Use The T2K Dice System?

I do wish theyd gone for a d14 as well, to keep the 5 step granularity,,, but d14's are rather rare... I'm only halfway joking... my group felt the ratings a bit compressed in T2K 4E. As a shorter campaign form, twern't a major issue. (The 155mm to the chest that ganked a PC... that was.) Still, hav...
