Re: Player background briefing

I wish the Jodorowsky '75 production had been allowed to be produced— Moebius, Chris Foss, Dalí, Orson Welles, Udo Kier, & Mick Jagger, as well as Dan O'Bannon & Giger (who went on to work together on  Alien )... The artistic standard of popular science fiction films would have probably been much hi...

Re: A Dark Mind...?

You mention that no abilities work in combat, you have that list? Yes, I got the swedish version of the game.. I'll give you some examples: Mind reading, Materia control, Intuition... Each explicitly say that it cannot be used in combat. Awesome. In games that have magical spells, I'm much more in ...

Re: "You cannot pass!" (Or can you?)

The Taoan system is closed. The portals leading there are heavily garded. (Also reading from the beta-pdf "Secrets of the horizon" what is mentioned about the reason of Taoan being closed, I don't think anyone will be allowed to pass even with an escort!) This is not something that will sit in the ...

Re: Mystics

I believe Alphast's point was that even if you Vainamoinen will be strictly fair and have every mystic-induced Darkness Point strike the mystic and only him... ...not every gamesmaster will... :) Ahhh yes, I see. Good thing I intend to even have differently colored darkness point markers in order t...

Re: Firefly meets Arabian Nights

Think of Coriolis as a bit like Babylon 5......
Indeed, there are great similarities.
And although it's a blurb from an old novel, I prefer Coriolis Station being Casablanca meets Blade Runner. :)

Re: "You cannot pass!" (Or can you?)

Greg, I think you're jumping the portal ship a little too soon in making such encompassing statements. I've read bits of the Swedish version (not a lot), and unless things are going to be greatly changed for the English-language version, I don't think the blockade has shut down entire regions of tra...

Re: Player background briefing

Will there be a PDF that we can hand out to the players so they can get background and theme in advance? The quickerstart pdf (yet to be released) would probably be something like that. You could probably make one... though why would you deprive yourself of introducing players to the universe yours...

Re: A Dark Mind...?

... "scientifically quantifiable" ... To me, something as ephemereal as a reroll isn't.... Hence faith. How many players (not characters) offer their personal equivalent of a prayer when rolling the dice...? :) Sometimes their prayers are answered. Other times...  :oops: For me, the faith and praye...

Re: Mystics

Something like this clip from the movie "Full metal jacket" (A warning, it's kind of strong scene)
