Re: Low damage for firearms

Its not which is more likely to kill you in the long run. Its which is most likely to break you now. Yes. A gunshot wound is more likley to be lethal. Over time. Because the bullet tends to stay inside and cause more damage. But a knife is more likely to cause a wound that will make you bleed out no...

Re: Space Truckers, mostly Alien-free, UNTIL...

My understanding is campaign play is about more than the aliens themselves. It's built to do a lot of things dealing with any planets potential hazards, political intrigue and just general dangers of space and alien planets. That being said, while some want to run Alien as a ongoing campaign like yo...

Re: What to share with players

Okay, I am now at home and have access to my PDF. I will give you some advice on some preparation and running of Chariot of the Gods and maybe it will help you in the future running anything. Go out and buy a pack of 3x5 note cards. In the USA I can grab a pack of 300 for about $5.00. The most usefu...

Re: What to share with players

I recommend any new gms to look up the lazy dms guidebook and the return of the lazy dm. Its all about minimalist preparation. It will save you a ton of time and make running games vastly easier. The biggest issue with dnds scenarios is that they are written linearly as though the game is a story on...

Re: sharp tongue talent

There are also a lot of modifiers to social combat. Range, numbers, bargaining position.

Just because on paper the bard has 8 dice doesnt mean hes actually rolling 8 dice.

Intentions

This is a mechanic from another game that I have really enjoyed in the past. Just throwing the idea out there for others considerations. Instead of initiative that stays more or less static round by round of combat the DM instead asks the party for "Intentions?" The idea being that since these are s...

Re: Incinerator Clarification

Interesting question. If I was the DM I would do a couple different things based on circumstance. If the target and another were grappled then I would say they have a chance to attempt to sweep the targets back. But it would be a kind of "called shot" and would happen with some difficulty. (-2 or -3...

Re: Wolfkin Druid?

I think you re over thinking it. How x organization feels about y race is a broad brush to paint with. Any individual can have their own feelings about any other individual and his wolfkin could have been taken in and trained by any individual druid. Many wolfkin who are traveling around are exiles ...

Re: Paper quality of the hardcover

I am pretty sure the license owner will have QA and if the sample is not according to expectations it will be reworked. The license owner is Disney who is busy sorting through everything they just acquired from fox. It was fox. And fox didn't do anything of the kind for the game alien colonial mari...

Re: Backstories and gear

Also, if you don't have a weapon, kill an enemy. Congratz, you have a weapon now.
