Re: Alpha Feedback - Core Rulebook Chapter 4 Characteristics

Does anyone else think that the AWARENESS and STEALTH skills are under the wrong attributes? If STRENGTH is the attribute governing anything to do with the body, then that seems like the logical place for STEALTH. And if a “Player-hero with a high WITS rating can be … attentive” (p. 29), then I woul...

Re: [ALPHA] Temporary Alpha Feedback Place

The use of the scale D to A mimics the grading system that is used in many countries. It would've been clearer if that's how it were presented in the book. But there it's introduced as "a scale from A to D", which (in my opinion) reads as if D were the higher rating—until you read a bit further and...
