Re: Titan as an Upscaled Human

All the specific answers given here depend on the assumption that the two are proportioned to scale, and the principle to follow in that case is simple: length and/or thickness as linear dimensions...

Re: Supernatural Growth and Strength

That is not proportional to weight as requested in the OP.

Re: Is levitation speed additive

All true - but if you're floating in the air behind the car that's towing you, and not turning, I'm not sure what the equivalent to a bump in the pavement is going to be.

Re: Is levitation speed additive

I wouldn't require Control Rolls for being pulled along in the air behind something unless it was taking some pretty serious turns... in a straight line the only factor would be at what point it...

Re: Is levitation speed additive

Maybe they're holding onto a rope being pulled by their friend who can run faster... or tied off to the rear bumper of a car.

I'd probably allow either for someone who had levitation with no or...

Re: Stretching the bounds of typical fantasy races -OR- What makes an elf?

Re: Stretching the bounds of typical fantasy races -OR- What makes an elf?

The Norse may have; at the very least, there's no mention of them being short in the original myths, although they tend to be described as short and ugly once you get into Christian era legends.

Re: Stretching the bounds of typical fantasy races -OR- What makes an elf?

The other thing that was somewhat missing from Tolkien's version was the invisibility from normal sight and complete hiddenness of the homes of elves such as the alfar and Icelandic huldufolk....

Re: The Immovable Foundation-Stone on which TFT Characters are Built

See, that's the exact opposite of what the rules seem to say to me. A certain level of DX can do certain things, same for ST, completely regardless of how that level was generated. It could be by GM...

Re: Belated Find - Guardians OSR Superhero RPG

So, any other thoughts on the game design from those who've seen it?

I'm thinking the bonus damage dice for super levels of Str make it a bit overpowering, and might be best replaced by a simple...

Re: The Immovable Foundation-Stone on which TFT Characters are Built

ITL is part of TFT as well, so it's not always 24 or 32.

Re: The Immovable Foundation-Stone on which TFT Characters are Built

Okay, but even in terms of the starting philosophy, since ITL is part of TFT and ITL includes experience, attribute increases, and races with a different starting sum of attributes, I would say that...

Re: The Immovable Foundation-Stone on which TFT Characters are Built

Unless you're going to enforce BOTH the Melee ST + DX = 24 AND the Wizard ST + DX + IQ = 32 (NOT 36!), then all the algebraic expressions you provide for (starting) attributes are equivalent and it...

Re: Belated Find - Guardians OSR Superhero RPG

I'll have to look at the PDF again, but I think they simply save as a Fighter (F) of whatever level. There's an NPC Fighter class that I believe gives the Saving Throw numbers in the table.

Re: Belated Find - Guardians OSR Superhero RPG

I saw that... and it's a good set of rules, if a bit more crunchy than much of the rest of the game.

Any experiences to relate running Guardians, especially with regard to whether the additional...

Just found this game while poking around through the retro-clones on Drivethru, the concept is What If? Gary Gygax had been into the superhero genre rather than pulp and Tolkienesque fantasy, so it's...

Agreed that this should be allowed within the meaning of the rules... after all, if we restricted it to 'hands' per se, what would Octopi mages do, or any other race with different limb options than...

Re: striking/lifting ST and weapons

You can explicitly lift your BL from the ground in 1 second, and BL is determined by Lifting ST, so I would think that you can also use your full Lifting ST for drawing a bow string if you are taking...
