Re: Is Doing Nothing to avoid consciousness HT check an option when Stunned?

Right. His example is "if you are Stunned, you roll HT. If you're Mentally Stunned, you roll IQ." Not, if you are stunned you can only try to recover from one type per turn.

Re: Armory or Fast-Draw Critical Failure

Dude, that is not cool. I'm sorry.

However, you're right, those are great critical failures to inflict on a player.

Re: What will you not allow?

Just like you knew that level of power, out of the box, would get old fast for the other players.


I completely agree with this. However, the way the situation was presented was that it was...

Re: What will you not allow?

However, unlike Mind Shield, those are both obvious and require preparation. Mind Shield is just something you have. Even if it's just "Mind Shield earplugs," you wouldn't be seeing those at a...

Re: will/mind shield as "armor"

-50% is the same level as "Non-Wounding" so that seems excessive. Perhaps -25% to -30%.

Re: What will you not allow?

I'll be honest, I think this is a bad way of doing it.

Do you have mundane abilities that allow people to see invisible? Do you have mundane anti-phase/anti-teleport walls? Can people purchase...

Re: What will you not allow?

Hand of Bobb hates Mind Reading (Mind Reading, Ninjas, Phasing, and Teleportation are his big four "I'd really rather nots"). He doesn't have a strong feeling about Mind Control.

Well, he, specifically said this:

Which strongly implies that he feels Performance is only for following a script. So, per his statement: ad libs, improv, and role-playing is Acting.

Re: What will you not allow?

I completely disagree. Nothing in the skill says it doesn't cover improvisation. It is for entertainment not deception. As others, and myself, have discussed. Memorization of lines is not covered...

Re: What will you not allow?

Not familiar with the Robin Laws' version. Just familiar with real Method Actors.

As for taking the game seriously, of course we take it seriously. But, it's still a game. The game is not...

Re: What will you not allow?

I strongly disagree. Having known a fair number of method actors in my time, I'd rather not game with them again. The non-method actors are much easier to deal with and more fun in games. The...

Re: What will you not allow?

Not to be too nitpicky, Kromm, but shouldn’t that be “Performance (Roleplaying)?” We’re not trying to convince our other players we’re someone else, just entertain them.

But, I agree. I usually...

Exactly. It's that world's Dr. Kromm. They're the same character, but not the same character. The details are different, their motivations may change, but, the core of the character is the same...

Re: a case of Paradox

I'm not too up on WOD/NWOD, so I don't know all the mechanics.

Being the [redacted] that I can be at times, I'd have Shaluku get the itch, and give it to anyone he touches. Maybe it wears off of...

Re: What will you not allow?

Arguably, neither, but closer to the Christopher Lee method. It's more like the reboot/reset version.

And that's closer to player styles. John Wayne played John Wayne. Jerry plays Jerry. ...

I'm with Bruno on this. With one exception, I've never seen any player want to play the same character in an entirely different game. Sure, I've seen a few people want to play a previous character...

This is about it for me as well. Counting "anything that doesn't fit in the game in question" as assumed.

Re: Multiple Campaigns leading into one Large Campaign

I would say, play to each genre’s strengths.

So, you’ve got the detective in Campaign D. He comes across the actual problem. He learns of the grand plot and has to figure out how to save the...
