Re: Is it possible to keep panicking nonstop?

I also disagree immensely that someone screaming at you, running away, or going berserk on an alien would cause anyone else to panic. it wouldnt. it would cause stress but not automatic panic. That's cool, we can agree to disagree, Though just for reference, if someone makes a panic roll, they stil...

Re: Guidelines for awarding XP...?

I actually like the little questions, gives us something to talk about at the end. I ball park 4xp for our shorter sessions (which are 2 to 3 hours) and 8 for our big all day sessions. Progress has been satisfactory in regards to the players been able to get more skilled and pick up new talents with...

Re: How would you rule this? (crit injury)

Ok, I was going to leave this conversation, but some of these statements deserve an answer. I am at the point where I think they do not. But I didn't want you to think I was ignoring you. Best of luck with your game, I think the OP has enough arguments for either or design and no doubt by this poin...

Re: Hope's Last Day: does the traitor mechanic work?

Sadly I never ran HLD, my guys did CotG then we got straight into campaign play. I'm actually a tad surprised there is a traitor in the scenario, given it's only a single act long. Doesn't seem like there would be much time to actually let the traitor sow some seeds of discord, and like you said, ge...

Re: Is it possible to keep panicking nonstop?

all it requires is one person to roll a 12-14 on the panic table and make everyone else panic. And then for a second person to roll a 12-14 on the panic table to make everyone else including the first person panic again with a higher panic result which causes everybody else to panic a third time an...

Re: How would you rule this? (crit injury)

Yeah those explanations didnt make sense to me either. I read something about stepping on a bubble gum wrapper... even though the player successfully made their stealth check. But as GM you still feel the need to sabotage the success of their dice roles with some candy wrapper ridiculousness? lol. ...

Re: Is it possible to keep panicking nonstop?

A panic that triggers a panic in others, which triggers a panic again to everyone including the original person who panicked, which yet again triggers a panic to everyone, etc. etc. Is this how it's supposed to work? Yes you can, it is unlikely but it can happen, it can also get quite complicated a...

Re: Sentry gun in Hope's Last Day

Anyway, this is "reality" as it looks at my table, but as I said in some other discussion - we are all free to roll as we see best. Oh on this one I'm with you. I don't think the colonists of Hadleys Hope would have had sentry guns. But I can see how if someone did run it that way how they could ju...

Re: Map for a Colony Ship like the USS Covenant

Lots of ship floor plans out there. If you want something simple however and something that could even be randomised, look up the board game Nemesis. It's back on kickstarter as we speak, but if you don't want to shell out that kind of money, it is available in steam workshop for tabletop simulator....
