Re: [Blog] n-Body Politics

/me warily wonders if the politics will be optimistic like THS, or follow the lead of grim darkness of the Expanse . . .

Re: Centrum Light, Homeline Dark.

Both options seem to come with making IW significantly more grimdark than intended (the setting / campaign / game line in general, not just Infinity).

Re: Centrum Light, Homeline Dark.

With a soil that at the point the campaign is set is extremely infertile for those memes. Their Homeline is not our homeline, after all.

I said this before, I say this again:

Re: Extreme Regeneration and Costs HP

That's certainly a PoV with a right to exist and with some reasonable support by arguments.
My point is that your concerns look at a grander issue that the specific of Extreme Regeneration. They're...

Re: Centrum Light, Homeline Dark.

There seems to be a miscommunication. I'm not implying that humans treat distant humans as very real. I'm implying that humans treat other humans outside the monkeysphere as already not 100% real,...

Re: striking/lifting ST and weapons

You don't get away with merely being able to lift a gun. You must also be able to hold it steady on-target, without feeling overburdened, without its inertia interfering with your ability to line it...

Re: Extreme Regeneration and Costs HP

Ah, so you're talking in the context of a campaign setup which significantly differs from the default assumptions about the availability of speeding up resource recovery.

Re: Centrum Light, Homeline Dark.

That attitude supports the unreality argument. Ever heard the saying "We can endure the suffering of others for a thousand years"? It seems spot-on. Hard Men Making Hard Decisions tend to view the...

Do you apply a similar ruling to Regeneration (-0% ER Only)? If yes, why, if no, why?

Re: Centrum Light, Homeline Dark.

Err, no I don't. Or at least not in a way which you seem to imply - not in a contrasting way that implies that the other me is not real. Just as when I read the opinions of the other me (e.g. of...

Re: Centrum Light, Homeline Dark.

Not seeing them as people in ways that matter (e.g. in terms of their right to life) is what changes from thinking "I have this agenda, we need to make it work together" to thinking "I have this...

Re: Extreme Regeneration and Costs HP

I must admit I don't remember a ruling one way or another about whether (the Limitation version of) Costs HP causes Shock. I do recall that spending HP on Basic Set Magic has a non-shock but...

Re: Extreme Regeneration and Costs HP

I think that before making conclusions about HP regeneration and its 'repurposing' to regenerating HP Cost-related loss of HP, one needs to address the elephant in the room.

Specifically, the...

Re: Centrum Light, Homeline Dark.

Re: [Bio-Tech] Seeking pharmacist opinions about Modafinil stats on Bio-Tech page 152

How do you even apply Resistant to those? The primary effects of lost sleep are applied without a right to resist them.

[Bio-Tech] Seeking pharmacist opinions about Modafinil stats on Bio-Tech page 152

Greetings, all!

A few times, I ran into disagreements on what is and isn't plausibly achievable by TL9 biotech in terms of reducing the need for sleep (including the existing write-ups). The...

Re: languages of Ytarria

It takes only one Black Swan Event to prove that something is possible. If something is both possible and cool, it's normal for people to include instances of it in their settings.

Re: High Skill Vs Talent

The whole point of defaults is to reduce cost and increase competence in secondary skills that are related to a high primary skill. In fact, other systems tend to make medicine a single skill - if...

Re: Bang Skills vs raising IQ

Sounds like Chronicles of Darkness attributes.
(By comparison, World of Darkness had Wits/Perception/Intelligence and Charisma/Manipulation/Appearance in the last two columns.)
