[SR] TW Items: appropriate +1 die type

Hello Clint, you recently stated: Also, keep in mind the +1 die type to a Trait must be appropriate to the item, so a suit of armor can't have +1 die type to Fighting, Shooting, Notice , etc, but likely just something like Strength or Vigor. (emphasis mine) I am a bit confused: I assumed a +1 die ty...

They'd get a group roll, so d4 d6 -2, I believe.


That's what I meant.

[Rippers Resurrected] - Rosicrucian question - possible spoilers!

Note: I never played (and don't even own) the first edition of Rippers. In the Rippers Resurrected setting, theres often reference to the Rosicrucian's angelic magic, but there's no description of it. It's said that it also dangerous, but... why? No special rules in the Player's Handbook. Also, why ...

Re: [SR] Mass Battles

Ok, this is the scenario: The Legionnaires are leading the defense of Paragould (I've changed a lot in that 1 sheet adventure, now the town host a populace of a couple of thousand citizens). Paragould's citizens are under attack by a swarm of lesser demons, and they are armed with basic ranged weapo...

Re: [SR] Mass Battles

By the way, how would you handle a mass battle in which the enemies take half damage from the troops leaded by the players?

Re: [Savage Rifts] Automatic Megadamage + Summon Ally

I would say nope. It is not a damage dealing spell itself, the things it summons deal the damage. Exactly. Summon Ally does not directly deal damage. Think of Pummel. If the spell has the target taking falling damage, it wouldn't be Mega Damage. But, if one of my players asked it, I think I would a...

[SR] Cyberkinetic Denial

Can a Cyber-Knight use his Cyberkinetic Denial to shut down a Juicer's bio comp? Is there a need for an opposed roll, as per the Combat Cyborg? If the bio comp can be shut down, what are the drawbacks for the Juicer? Does he loose all that is listed under "Juicer abilities and bonuses" or ...

Re: [SR] Mass Battles

I'm pretty sure that "Mass Battle damage is Heavy Damage and bypasses all Armor " will make Power Armor troops, Robot Armor Pilots, and most Combat Cyborgs cry. Hrm... that seems a tad redundant, though--if it is meant to bypass Heavy Armor, then there's no point in calling it out as Heav...

[SR] Mass Battles

According to the SW core rules, characters can intervene in mass battles to get a better outcome, but the damage they suffer if they don't score a high result seems quite trivial for a Rifts battle.
Any rules to adjust it?

[SR] So, let's close this Rift...

Can a Rift just be shut down, or can you only reduce its duration?

EDIT: what about a Dramatic Task to close it?

[SR] Healing Mangled Characters

According to the Death & Defeat table, mangled characters can invest in Cybernetics to address the damage.
But are there any other means to "regenerate" those permanent injuries? Like 100% organic replacements that don't impose strain penalties...

[RR] Weired Science & Resistance to Magic

Does a weird science power harm monsters that can be damaged by magic, like the Shadow Hound? (Ethereal: Only magical attacks can affect shadow creatures). Also in Savage Rifts (and many other settings), certain monster suffer half damage from non-magic attacks. Does WS qualify for full damage? For ...

[SR] TW Weapons and Mega Damage

TPLG states about TW weapons "Wielders can expend 2 Power Points as a free action to cause Mega Damage for three rounds." This refers to the TW weapons present in the table. Is this a rule for every TW weapon, or just an exclusive feature of those weapons? Can this ability be added to a TW...

[SR] Savage Rifts Spellbook

I was wondering...
Why not creating a Savage Rifts Spellbook with all our trappings, so we can have them in one topic? Normal and Mega Powers, obviously.
And then, we can make a document, word and/or pdf that everybody can update...
What do you think?
Shall we begin? 8)

Re: [Rippers Resurrected] Jack's Back **Spoilers**

Very helpful ideas, indeed!

Regarding the Duchess: when I allowed this title for a Status 4, I based it on the pregens where Albion, actually Prince Albert Victor, Duke of Clarence and heir to the throne, has Status 4.
