Re: How to implement Loyalty Missions in tabletop RPG?

Perk is a Fallout term of art for minor advantages, such as these (http://www.usgamer.net/articles/26-09-2017-fallout-4-perk-guide-how-to-build-the-best-character). And it's well-known that the...

Re: [Ultra-Tech] Conservative hard SF... but not implausibly conservative

That's TL8 talking! By definition, a tech advance includes some advance in the technology, such as removing the limitation on how it's dosed and administered.

By weaponised, I'm talking about more...

Re: [Ultra-Tech] Conservative hard SF... but not implausibly conservative

Have a look at the Orion's Arm setting (http://www.orionsarm.com/page/514) for a good bunch of hard-sf. They're focussed more on the radical end, particularly with things like magnetic monopole...

Re: The problem with feinting

Deceptive Attacks let you hit every round, where Feints work every second round. There are probably a few contrary break points, but at the high skill levels our games usually played at, DA's had a...

Re: [Spaceships] Compact Power Plants

Try the Design Spreadsheet thread. There's a lot of options which ericbsmith came up with himself and he added to the system.

Re: The problem with feinting

I guess there is a logical problem in that:
Turn 1- Attacker inflicts massive Beat on defender, defender is now off-balance and weapon is out of defensive line
- Defender *attacks normally*!

Re: The problem with feinting

That might be partly because it's a relic of the original 1e combat system, and this is why more elegant or realistic alternatives have been designed since.

It's useful to have as a mechanic which...

Re: Changing History

Let's go for "altruistic egotism" then.

I'm not sure about there not being countless worlds though. I think the book states in a few places that there are an unlimited number, and this would be...

Re: Changing History

It's not changing the history of Homeline though (or some other reference timeline). It's changing the future of the Echo, with unpredictable results.

In general, it does seem like a pointless...

Adguard blockchain warning

So I've been getting this warning for the past day or so when loading various forums.sjgames pages, and I'm trying to figure out where the problem is. It could local to my computer, of course, but...

Re: Centrum Light, Homeline Dark.

For many kinds of terrorists, who want to live in a society closer to their own vision, it might be easier to find a world where history already happened that way and go and live there.

However,...

Re: Attacking a Precognitive Demi-God...

I think it's fair to say that if it's a precog "demigod", then he's probably got more than just the plain vanilla version of the advantage.

Precog doesn't have much itself in the way of neat...

Re: Centrum Light, Homeline Dark.

IRA, perhaps? They can escape the yoke of English rule, but it would mean abandoning their...

Re: Centrum Light, Homeline Dark.

No, it was more a claim presupposing that Homeline was more divergent from OTL than it actually is. Since it's not, I went with a second face-saving claim that since terrorism in OTL has particularly...

Re: Centrum Light, Homeline Dark.

Exposure to foreign memes doesn't mean they'll necessarily all take hold. They'll have to compete in the marketplace of ideas for popularity or mindshare.

Perhaps terrorism as a meme, especially blowing things up for political gain, just hasn't caught on in this timeline.
