Re: Cash, Credit & Stock

PC walked over with a shotgun to shoot it point blank in the head only to have it wake up and strip the shotgun from him by opposing rolls. He also got two stress "1's", made two panic rolls - both to flee.
You had a PC roll multiple Panic Rolls on a single check? That's harsh.

Re: Making Kids... KIDS...

I would think having a kid as a secret synthetic would be problematic in a campaign since their lack of aging is more apparent than in adults. I suppose for short missions it could work, though.

Re: Air on the Cronus in CotG

Good book. I got a cheap second hand TV and project the maps onto that. I find that I don't need so many detailed maps as I did with other rpg's. Also there are some great sound boards on line that really add to the atmosphere. However how useful they would be in a gaming hall I don't know, because...

Re: [Moved] Survival Rate?

I've only run Chariot of the Gods so far. It took three sessions, with four players starting and a fifth joining for sessions two and three. Two survived for sure with a third one-armed character left behind the Daisy (disabled) without any life support other than her compression suit. I left it vag...

Re: Character name suggestions

Using a random name generator like this one is always a good option. The option to generate ship, planet and location names is a nice bonus.

Re: Chariot of the Gods ID card props

I made something similar for my players. I copied the character images from the book, added their names and crew role and then printed them to put into these  stands. You can see a sample in the attached image as a full-page image, but to fit the holder I trimmed along the dotted lines. For the firs...

Re: Plotting FTL travel

My take is that, under normal circumstances, no roll should be needed. Destination will be entered, the computer will calculate the best route, and you're set. I would have the players roll when the regular navigation system is not available, when they need to recalculate the route on the go due to...

Re: CoTG in one 5 hours session - possible?

My group has played for thirteen hours so far and they're just barely into act III. I think our next (third) session will be the final one, but I said that last time. They sure do love to roleplay.

Re: Getting PDF copy after buying physical book at local game store

I pre-ordered the special edition book back in May and was given a free copy of the PDF in December. Of course that's not very helpful now, but perhaps for future books it could be the same?

Re: Maps

There are sci-fi options, but you may need to browse the workshop for them (I've been using it so long I sometimes forget which are default and which are community-created). Someone created a bunch of textures from Half-Life that would work pretty well for a run-down colonial installation (metal wal...
