Re: Cybernetics

There really isn't much of a mechanical difference. But that doesn't mean biosculpting and cybernetics is the same thing - to me one is sophisticated, almost magical, and most importantly: graceful; while the other is grease, guts and blood... Even if both would give the exact same mechanical advant...

Re: A Dark Mind...?

Well, when the game "begins" mystic powers is on the rise. Not sure if they were completely unheard of before, but if you play a mystic the idea is* that you have quite recently manifested your powers. My guess is that all these portents and omens foreshadow the events of The Grace of the Icons camp...

Re: Att bära vapen på Coriolis

Den viktigaste punkten ställer jag som en motfråga: hur lätt vill du att det ska vara att springa omkring med skjutvapen? Jag menar, i en kampanj där man skjuter vilt var och varannan spelning, är det bäst att inte kriminalisera vapeninnehav. I en annan kampanj, där beväpnade bovar utgör ett ovanlig...

Re: Roles/Professions in Coriolis

Concepts or archetypes or professions in skill-based games are often simply a collection of pre-selected choices (such as which skills you have potential in). Sure, some games add significantly to the crunch factor by giving each concept an unique ability. Mutant Year Zero is such a game. But overal...

Re: Now we're playing with Portals!

One more thing: I've assumed the portal field to be fairly stationary in space. Any "portal station" will therefore either have to be a space ship if it wants to stay close to a portal field, or if it's a "regular" space station, it will orbit the star and therefore on average be its distance from t...

Re: Now we're playing with Portals!

You say each portal is manned by a hypernavigator, where does that person sit/live/work? (sorry dumb questions) Portal stations are mentioned; providing two main services: jump calculations, and communications probes. I have assumed they orbit the star close to the portal field(s). I have furthermo...

Re: Echoes of the Portal Wars...

The original vision (as published by the first Järnringen edition) was "here and now", and not a focus on a detailed timeline of ultimately not-relevant past events. I for one hope that Free League doesn't buckle and include any connections to past Horizons and our own timeline. Events since the arr...

Re: Darkmorphs and Constructs oh my!

The nekatra and ekilibri are smart or even intelligent animals, not human at all (humanoid in that they walk on two legs and have two arms, but otherwise definately animals in their looks). My hunch (purely a personal guess here) is that these were originally concieved as "monsters" (the devilishly...

Re: Now we're playing with Portals!

No FTL! Operating a Pony Express delivery company is a very appropriate backdrop for an adventure party. :) The vibe of the Third Horizon is of a closed setting, with all communication to horizons #1 and #2 being irrevocably cut off a long time ago, making the Third Horizon sink into stagnation and ...
