Re: [ALPHA] Character generation

As the Character Generation system stands I believe it is too granular (too little differentiation between levels, too few levels) and has too few skills to make for a game which will support long term campaign style play. Isn't the word coarse , not granular ? Granular, many steps, small change be...

Re: [ALPHA] THE WORLD AT WAR comments/feedback

In my mind, where the book could actually make a huge improvement is instead of placing the big timeline and detailed descriptions of various regions in the player's handbook, place most if not all of that information in the Referee's Guide Good idea! 1st ed had it that way. It could also be more '...

Re: [ALPHA] Character generation

3. It seems quite difficult to gain promotion. I am generating 30-year-old privates as a matter of course. Promotion in the lower ranks (private - PFC - corporal) shouldn't be that hard. An incomplete idea: If rank was also a number, and you had to roll over it to get promotion, it would be easy to...

Re: [ALPHA] Character generation

1) But since a term ages your character and that also affect your stats. On the average you will have one stat decrease, perhaps two if you have a lot of terms. Using the Life Path system also let you start with one more stat increase (3 instead of 2) compared to archetype character creation. If it...

[ALPHA] Character generation

Some thoughts on the character generation. I like the life path, but noticed some things I thought I'd bring up for discussion. I haven't really made up my mind about them myself. 1. Age effects are not really age effects since they come independent from aging. It's mechanism to give something negat...

Re: [ALPHA] THE WORLD AT WAR comments/feedback

A note on NBC: A likely use of chemical weapons is to make life harder for another enemy than the one you intend to fight (where you end up in the mess yourself). against air bases and suppy depots to hinder operations. on your flanks or choke points to prevent counter-attacks or enemy movement in g...

Re: [ALPHA] Temporary Alpha Feedback Place

Life Paths Player's Manual, p 31 8. Age your character D6 years. Then roll another D6 – if the result is lower than the number of terms you have completed, you must reduce one attribute of your choice by one step, due to the effects of age. You cannot go below D. Note that you cannot get an attribu...

Re: [ALPHA] Some tweaks on the French situation

No, I was thinking a shorter time frame: - Soviet nuke French harbours - French civilian gov does not retaliate - French military makes a coup - French military immediately nukes Soviet targets Since the reason for the coup is that there was no retaliation, the first action by the coup-makers could ...

Re: [ALPHA] Some tweaks on the French situation

I was thinking of the text in player's manual. It seems to be logical that the military would retaliate since they took power after the governemnt didn't.

Nice writeup
