Re: Game: Guess the character!

The Queen from Snow White ? Patron (employer) seems to be a justifiable way of characterizing the King. Animal Handling (Birds) seems like a bad fit, though, being a characteristic of the Disney Snow...

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

Having recently noticed in DFRPG a rule regarding avoiding a HT check to stay conscious by choosing Do Nothing (http://forums.sjgames.com/showpost.php?p=2139594&postcount=40)... and learning it was...

Re: Rules Differences Between DFRPG and GURPS

Thanks, I see that now on B419. (I'd checked the descriptions of Do Nothing on B325 and B364 and consciousness HT checks on B327 and B380...)

Re: Rules Differences Between DFRPG and GURPS

I noticed something interesting --

You can opt to take the Do Nothing maneuver instead of making a check to stay conscious.

Re: Treat margin of success of 0 as 1 when results for 0 would look like failure?

Letting success by margin of 1 be no better than success by margin of 0 is feels to me less objectionable than letting success be no better than failure, even if the latter could also be by a margin...

Re: Treat margin of success of 0 as 1 when results for 0 would look like failure?

Re: Treat margin of success of 0 as 1 when results for 0 would look like failure?

OK, I guess the 0 result makes sense for Lifting since you're only trying to do it when you're trying to lift more than your BL.

But Panhandling is an uncontested success roll. And Musical...

Treat margin of success of 0 as 1 when results for 0 would look like failure?

Success for Musical Influence means getting to adjust your audience's reaction roll by +/- your margin of success (B210). I assume nothing happens on failure; it doesn't say things get worse.
