Re: Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down?

I'm going to use the same character creation restrictions as Fenhorn, but otherwise I love the game so far. I already ran out a combat and a chase, and the streamlined rules are still exciting. Chases are really cool. The search/balance for Promotion, Humanity, and Chinyen makes for some really cool...

Re: Why only a Blade Runner character

Chinyen is a bit like Cthulhu's Credit Rating system. It represents "any savings you might have managed to scrape together during your career." You can get more from selling things, case files, or pushing for a pay raise. You can also get one per Case File with the Cashflow Specialty. Priv...

Re: Why only a Blade Runner character

It's probably supposed to be a game about Blade Runners. Well, obviously. But you should be able to do other things with the setting too, right? I know some future products have been mentioned, but I think the basic rules should give us some more stuff to work with. As I said, this is (or should be...

Re: Unclear: Archetypes

Hmm, it looks like T2K Archetypes don't make you increase the key Attribute either. Alien uses it as a limit break. So, assuming no fix from Free League, I'll probably use it as a suggestion for Attribute, say that only the three Skills listed can be raised to A Rank, and say that one of the Special...

Re: Unclear: Archetypes

It does seem really strange, especially when there is the Attribute and three Skills listed.
I wish it was part of the rules, but if it doesn't change before print I'll probably say that the listed Attribute has to be at least B level and the lists Skills have to be at least C level.

Re: Early Access Feedback - Case File 01: Electric Dreams

The Animoid Row stretch goal said we would get the location, a map, and NPC's. I don't think we got any NPC's so far. Any chance of getting stats for a couple typical Animoids? I got a set of NPC cards in the "Starter Set Cards" PDF, and then the background info and stats on them can be f...

Re: Why only a Blade Runner character

The idea behind both Blade Runner movies is the struggle between doing the cruel things you're duty bound to do ... or doing what you think is right. This agonizing grey area is the core of the movies and this RPG. If you play any other type of character, that struggle likely won't be all that pres...

Re: Early Access Feedback - Personal/Vehicles Armor is Useless

IIRC, it doesn't take very long (in game) to don armor. I see it more like digging a vest out of your vehicle when you're about to go into a building full of baddies. The penalties generally won't be as big a deal if you're not wearing it all the time, and the bit of protection might be nice. I do t...
