Re: [ALPHA] Stationary encounters

There are a couple of questions around stationary encounters: Increased severity of encounter for longer stays . (stationary encounters table). Does RECON have any effect for enemies and PCs?

If the PCs do hide their camp, roll RECON as described on page xx of the Players’ Manual. If the NPCs f...

Re: [ALPHA] My many notes on the Player's Manual

I haven't used the comment feature in Dropbox before, but noticed it's uses a lot of GPU (graphics card). Ironically, unless you have a computer that's good at playing computer games it'll be hard to comment on this tabletop game. I don't know if multiple files would solve the problem, or if somethi...

If the PCs are found? HIDDEN CAMP: If the PCs make no attempt to hide their camp, approaching NPCs will automatically spot it. If the PCs do hide their camp, roll RECON as described on page xx of the Players’ Manual. If the NPCs fail to spot the camp, the PCs can choose whether to stay undetected or...
