Re: defense

The opposed roll wouldn't include an Effect unless an Action is spent. Otherwise the attack would just miss.

Maybe just making Defense a Maneuver instead of an Action would work. It doesn't make sense to me that an Enforcer is as easy to hit as a Chronicler if they know the melee attack is coming.

defense

The rules say that if your opponent misses your defense is wasted. This doesn’t make sense to me. You should still get the stunts for your successes, you just don’t need to reduce the damage. And would it be easier for a Fight roll to be an opposed roll? And if the defender wants they can spend an a...

Re: Weapon Ranges

The ranges are low but I would consider these as what would be effective if you are being shot at while you are shooting back. You might be able to shoot out to 400 meters with an assault rifle on a range, but how far can you effectively shoot in a ruined building while the enemy is shooting back? W...

Re: Couple of questions from a newbie

I did not find anything on additional/more powerful dogs in the rules that interact directly with the dog handler skill/talents. I would play the game first to see how powerful the dog handler is and if you are the GM and you feel it should be tweaked, I'd use the boss mechanics for inspiration. If ...

Re: Rules clarification Exorcist and Spirits

I am loving Coriolis so far but of course there are always questions: For now I wonder how the talent Exorcist works exactly and what it does. Furthermore how can you hurt spirits with which mystic powers? Spirits like djinn and hazared have a power to possess people. A successful use of Exorcist f...

Re: Portal Fee?

Page 139 under Portal Jumping: The fees are usually high, between 5,000 and 10,000 birr, which means most skippers prefer to share the cost by
forming convoys and jumping together.

Re: What map of the Zone are you using? How did you start your campaign?

I'm going to be starting my first campaign this Sunday. I'm using the Orlando/Disney Zone, but I created my own map so I could fill in notable locations from scratch. I don't have a lot of experience GMing, so I'm a little nervous. It's a custom campaign (I'm ignoring Eden). I've got a plot hook in...

What map of the Zone are you using? How did you start your campaign?

I'm curious what zone maps are in use. I like the New York one but all the water could restrict exploration (or lead to adventures to find a boat or a submarine or jet skis). My thought is to start in the Ark with a random event. Anyone have any stories on how they started their campaign? I played t...

Miniatures and measuring movement: how do you do it?

I like my player characters to be down in the dirt hiding behind rusted cars and looking for places to snipe and ambush from so I’ll be using miniatures in my upcoming MY0 game. I don’t like squares (too much like a board game) so I’ll be using a measuring tape with 1 maneuver equaling 5 inches. I p...
