Re: How do you describe a great hit with lame damage?

Maybe I'm weird, but the easiest solution to me is to wait to describe the hit until after damage is rolled. The "too hit" roll is just a game mechanic with no real SFX. Instead of looking at a good Shooting roll as a "good hit" and then trying to justify why it didn't do a lot o...

Re: Taunt Edge

I'm not overly experienced with creating new Edges, so I would definitely have to play test it as I don't trust my judgement in just eyeing it up, but I really like your second version.

Re: Vehicle scale personal issue - possibly solved.

Obviously if it works for you have a blast and more power to you, but for my money this is the text book definition of a solution in search of a problem.

Re: Shotgun vs 3-round burst

Most civilians don't have access to fully automatic weapons. Even many police SWAT units have semi-auto assault rifles.
A sawed off shotgun with a pistol grip is significantly easier to conceal than an M16.
3RB is using 3x the ammunition every turn.

Re: [Fabled Environments] Olympus Inc Relaunch

I already know why their first campaign was shut down, in fact I directly referenced it in an earlier post.
As to their attempt to relaunch being rejected, they never bothered to say anything about it here . That makes much more sense than the BBB rating nonsense.

Re: [Fabled Environments] Olympus Inc Relaunch

Regardless of the battle of "who is better, Indiegogo or Kickstarter", the real issue is Fabled Environments. Do you trust them? I do. I will not support Indiegogo. They asked why, I answered. As to if I trust Fabled Environments, I did trust them through two of their three successful Kic...

Re: [Fabled Environments] Olympus Inc Relaunch

There are people I know who have been scammed on Indigogo, and indie is (in my personal experience) even less helpful than Kickstart when dealing with fraud. Indie is much less thorough in vetting projects ahead of time, and since they allow charity projects with flexible funding (and require no rea...

Re: Sci-Fi Companion Knowledge Computers vs Electronics

I know people who repair computers for a living and build ones for sale out of spare parts but who could not build a transistor radio or for that matter even re-wire a lamp without following step-by-step instructions on youtube (and even then I wouldn't trust the lamp). To my mind that is the differ...

Re: my GM got Rekt by Tricks, Again, Campaign Journal

Human average is d6 in Attributes. If your Taunt and Intimidation rolls are basically d4-4 (or d6-4 due to your wild die) d4-2 is the untrained roll, not -4. The OP said: in fact, my taunt and intimidate, i'm rolling at a d4 with a -2 for being untrained , on top of a -2 for being timid , and doing...

Human average is d6 in Attributes. If your Taunt and Intimidation rolls are basically d4-4 (or d6-4 due to your wild die) and you are consistently getting multiple Raises against someone with average Smarts or Spirit something is not being handled correctly. Unless you are cheating on your die rolls...

One place it's located is in the Savage Worlds Deluxe rule book (and the Deluxe Explorer's Guide of course). It's in the "Settings Rules" section.

Re: [Accursed] Shade Acceptance Path Issues

Salt effects them when Phased or Ethereal. I thought that was obvious, but the publisher has also confirmed it. You keep putting words in my mouth. I never claimed they are always or by default Ethereal. Period. Stop acting like I've said or implied it. I havent. I know the Savage Worlds book is nee...

Re: [Accursed] Shade Acceptance Path Issues

I've never said phasing was "always on", you keep putting those words in my mouth. Obviously is has to be activated to be in use, I never implied otherwise. Phasing may very well be over powered (personally I think it is), that doesn't change the fact that you trying to classify it as a mo...

Re: [Accursed] Shade Acceptance Path Issues

Well, the company just confirmed that Shade's Ethereal power does include invisibility, meaning that Ethereal and Phasing are different despite their not clarifying that when directly asked before and negating their own statement from last year that errata was needed. My apologies for being so adama...

Re: [Accursed] Shade Acceptance Path Issues

I never stated that Phasing is the Shade's "natural state" so repeatedly harping on that point is a bit of a straw man. They are only Phased when they choose to be. Anyway, maybe hearing from the publisher will help. This question was posted a little over a year ago. Another poster pointed...

Re: [Accursed] Shade Acceptance Path Issues

Sorry, maybe I’m not being clear. I’ll try to restate my problem. Stage Two Acceptance for Shades claims to make 3 changes. 1) Shades can now Phase for 3 rounds at a time. Problem: Shades can already Phase for 3 rounds at a time. In fact, they can Phase for as many Phases as they want. The 3 rounds ...

Re: [Accursed] Shade Acceptance Path Issues

No, I'm saying that since they changed how Phasing works from the rough draft without changing the Acceptance Stages that Stage two no longer applies because they can already do more than that. You are arguing with me like I didn't just quote the book. They can Phase for as long as they want, this h...

Re: [Accursed] Shade Acceptance Path Issues

I would use common sense. The Shade's phasing ability is a facsimile of the burrow power, so it should only apply when using it for purposes related to movement. You can burrow through walls, floors, and ceilings, but not through air or water. The upgrade is a form of limited etherealness useful wh...
