Re: Problem with "tank" PC

Every time I think of mid/maxed tank I think of the shenanigans one of my players tried in Shiantar Legends Arise with a just massive Ogre. It taught me the hard way of be fully aware of the increased power of some settings and the synergy power of racial bonuses.

Re: Problem with "tank" PC

However, are you sure about your math? Let's say they are Human. They started with all Stats at d6, and a free edge, let's say they got Brawny. They can bump up their Stats only once at each Rank, so they need to become at least Veteran to bump Vigor d6 to Vigor d12. Also, during all those "le...

Re: [ETU] Scary Texas

Got you, thing is only one student saw the victim and didn't tell anyone. Things got so crazy and there was so much drinking with the party that happened after he forgot to tell the others and my group luckily will roll play bad ideas if they know their characters don't know any better. In character...

It was a montage/dramatic task and any club it did something evil. Happen to be the only club of the set.

Re: New Modern Horror Setting

Good news, so far all the mechanics behind the tropes seems done and we just need the fluff and formatting so each trope gets their own page and everything is completely clear in both what is mechanically available as well as the conceptual range each trope can fill. On top of that the structure for...

Re: [ETU] Scary Texas

It most certainly isn't and he as a player tends to walk the grey line, but in this case it was much more of a "hey this thing is dangerous and adding cops right now won't help anyone" type of situation.

Re: [ETU] Scary Texas

ETU Update: Character's encountered the released leprechaun who got the drop on the Trouble Magnet. The magnet then immediately negotiated with the creature, made friends and the team then spent the entire adventure working with the leprechaun which involved the Trouble Magnet getting cursed (right ...

Re: [SR] Too much MD defense?

As noted before, grenades are your friend, but more so that you think with your casters. Something to remember is the Disruption rules in the Deluxe book. Once the caster's armor spells are beyond the initial duration hit them with a grenade or other MDC weapon. If they suffer damage they have to ma...

Re: Help: Players constantly want to switch characters

So a few things here: 1) Not every game needs to run forever. If you're group as a whole is looking to change up characters every major are or season then that tells you that your group is wanting new characters for new arcs. The fix here is simple, just have a game where when the arch ends the game...

Re: Problem with "tank" PC

So, Trick + Wild Attack + Called Shot to the Head + Gang-Up Bonus means that they now need to hit a Parry of 8, possibly against an already Shaken opponent, which will do +4 damage. Small note, Wild Attack + Called Shot to the Head is +6 damage. Don't forget that Wild Attacks alone do +2 damage. Al...

Re: Problem with "tank" PC

But continuing down this tangent, the Trappings that suggest adding Fatigue damage are crazy powerful. Consider that a -1 penalty is similar to a 1 die type drop and a -2 penalty is better than a 2 die type drop. So any Trappings that grant Fatigue damage turn the power into a version of Lower Trai...

Re: New Modern Horror Setting

New Modern Horror Setting

So I'm finally taking the time to clean up, refine, and better organize my home setting of Intrepid Investigators. I already did a good bit of the fluff work for my Ultimate Urban Fantasy guide for D&D, but I want to push it into the system where I started it with Savage Worlds. I know there's a...

This Poe is starting to get some love too after repeatedly calling the player that can talk to him an idiot as he tried to open his magically enchanted cage and was repeatedly getting ele...

Man I completely forgot about this thread. I've been posting in "suggestions for Degrees of Horror, but at that's more of a rules and tips thread I figured it wouldn't hurt to throw a recap of my newest ETU campaign here. I made a couple small but key changes to Degrees of Horror so fair warnin...

Re: [ETU] Suggestions for Degrees of Horror

Loving all the stuff about Poe! I'll probably use this one. :) I would like to tie this to one of the Proectors from the '60s, but not sure if I want to deal with a 50-year old bird. It could also be a good way of introducing the witch ally from the one-shot Scavenger Hunt. Actually, I've been wond...
