Re: 40th Anniversary Edition

Like you, I find Martin Grip’s art to be infinitely superior to special edition covers. Not just here but in every special edition published. But does your 40th anniversary bundle come with a poster of the art?

Re: Weapon ranges and attacks Vs armor

Range modifiers apply even if the effective range if high than the range you are shooting at, but if the target is with that effective range you also apply the bonus.  There is a negative modifiers on shooting at engaged range enemies due to the difficulty of bringing your weapon to bare. But if you...

Re: Who's gotten it to table so far?

My players had a really tough time coping with getting 5 sixes on regular dice plus 2 on a stress die but then a single 1 on a stress die undoing everything.  They understood it but just had a tough time accepting it.  Need more ways to reduce stress? Sounds like a good game, but your experience he...

Re: Skill Rolls and Stress Dice

 However, the mechanic for Skill Rolls states that 6's on your Base Dice only determine success or failure.  Stress Dice do not factor into success/failure, except that any 1 rolled on a Stress Dice negates your ability to push the roll, thereby actually decreasing your chance of success because th...

Re: Cinematic pdf

Since I've expressed a dislike of the Secret Android plot, I'm considering running Lucas as an available PC from the beginning.  Already revealed as a Synthetic, he would 'activate' as the crew of the Montero wake from cryosleep.  He'd be played differently than the other PCs; Lucas still has his P...

Re: Solving Mysteries (a question of philosophy)

I think the pressure of time may have had an effect, as you suggest. I must say, though, that in my (limited) experience, the Loop mysteries do tend to be  more “railroady” than, for example Forbidden Lands Adventure sites. The mystery element is not necessarily “whodunnit” but rather the kids see s...

Re: Backstories and gear

The Legends rulebook seems to make clear that you don’t get the gear listed under your profession, by specifying only silver and resources: Start the game with silver and Resource Die according to your profession description in Chapter 2 of the Player’s Handbook. So we started our campaign with that...

Re: First Aid

Since it seems that Alien has a high mortality rate (I checked this in the last session we have), I will try with this "houserule": that a wounded character (not broken) could be healed. If this fix is not broken, I will keep it in my games.  
I advise against it, but it’s your table 🙂

Re: Who's gotten it to table so far?

Took another three hours to actually finish up act 1... but that because they got well and truly into character, and decided to focus on making it safe on Deck A. They lightly scoured Deck A with the flamethrower, fixed the CO2 scrubbers, cobbled together a new flamer, had a fade to black scene bet...
