Re: Beta - Damage and Trauma

Lets say for example you have a run of the mill butcher, he's not a psychopath, he cares for his animals, but is used to the reality that one day he will butcher them for produce. The other person is someone who has been raised in a shielded home, surrounded by sunshine and rainbows, kept away from...

Re: Beta - Damage and Trauma

I've got a lot to say on this too. Generally I think cheeplives is right on the money. Some of this stuff is, y'know, problematic in the scope of handling mental illness. Some of it is just troubling from the perspective of roleplaying. I get that this (and most/all FL products) are OSR games but ch...

Re: Changelog

I agree. I have a character now with high recon who has no military experience. It's not correct. However, many of the civilian careers are simply very flat. The solution always was and is to have several more skills (and give up on having them perfectly balanced between attributes, since the attrib...

Re: Beta - Damage and Trauma

Like I said, it makes sense what they were going for, but it's really very bleak and leaves a number of things fairly unbalanced. On the other hand, you could also easily argue that the more empathy you have, the more you understand yourself and are able to cope with trauma successfully.

Re: Beta - Damage and Trauma

I see the intent here, but there are at least 3 places now where having Empathy is a bad thing in this game, which means unless you really want one of those skills, it's a total dump stat. That's unfortunate because it's also obvious. Want to make a combat monster? It is clear what you must do. Note...

Re: Changelog

Base-building -- a totally new section! All of the rules and everything listed here is new... I won't go into detail on any of that. On to the Travel section. Driving Mishaps table, p142: - this is now a 2d6 table, rather than 1d10, making extreme mishaps much less likely - there are two new entries...

Re: Changelog

But let's keep things moving here... On pg91, there are now rules for maintenance of guns and vehicles. Pass a tech roll once a week or they lose reliability. The new rules for gear reliability are also repeated here. For weapons and vehicles, I did not look carefully, but I did flip back and forth ...

Re: Changelog

I get why, and I guess support it, but I think it's a shame all those education paths lost Recon and got nothing to replace it with! There are too many careers where you don't actually get any choice of skill at all now. (I guess that's not technically true, you can choose the defaults, but still)

Re: Beta Feedback - Referee's Manual Chapter 3 Encounters

page 36, "Stationary Encounters" chart:
Draw an encounter normally. Only encounters marked PP are triggered
What is this PP mark? I don't remember ever seeing that anywhere.

Re: Beta Feedback - Referee's Manual Chapter 3 Encounters

page 51, Rumors: An intact “Topol-M” supposedly exists somewhere out in the country. The RT-2PM2 Topol-M is a mobile ICBM launcher. Anyone in possession of such a weapon would wield enormous power – or be able to cause untold carnage. Any power in the area offers a reward for it, but it might be best...
