Re: Wild Die

Yup. Just found it when I got home from work. So, by canon, it's the Master Edge or nothing, in core.

Which means that in a Born A Hero setting, you still need to be a human (or other "Adaptable" race) to get it any time before Legendary.

Re: Wild Die

There's a couple that boost it. Under the Legendary Edges, after Professional and Expert comes Master, which changes your Wild Die with the selected skill to a d10. I'm pretty sure there's also a martial arts based one that ups your wild die on damage in barehanded attacks. I'll check my books when ...

[SR] Psyscape Conversion

So, I've started working on converting stuff in Psycsape. Started with the 'Psyscape training', as a string of Edges. I think I got the flavor right, though I'm not sure about the cost of the Transformation power. Would be glad to listen to feedback: https://www.dropbox.com/s/bmfd2vkk44w7lyz/Psyscap...

There's a few specific uses I have for it. Powers by Rank is very helpful, for instance.

Re: [SR] Different take on the Boom Gun

So, is there anything inherently wrong with it? Unbalancing? Mechanically flawed? It's a clunky game mechanic, though probably not actually clunkier than a Medium Burst Template. Assuming you keep the ranges the same, you're making it more powerful. It will completely destroy a line of things up to...

Re: Alchemist

Well, if I'm reading the first bit right, what you're saying is that for "known powers", the Alchemist would have 15 PPE, which could be used to make potions for their powers. Each potion would have to be pre-made, AND they would need to 'bind' the PPE to that potion (so they can't stockpi...

Re: Alchemist

Hm... Some of this is a bit unclear. Begin with three powers and 15 PPE, Their PPE is stored in potions that have to be brewed in advance of use. I'm not sure how to parse the second portion of this. Do you mean to say that they have to brew the potions ahead of time in order to use their base power...

Re: [SR] Healing Mangled Characters

The greater healing Power can do the trick quite nicely. It's not easy, though--the spellcasting roll is at -4, so you'll want to find someone who excels, even by the standards of Rifts. Best option is to have: a Mystic with greater healing , Professional/Expert: Faith, and the +1 Faith Staff from ...

Re: [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... The greater healing Power can do the ...

1) would a busters fire aura be normally be affected by a busters fire mastery as if it were considered a minor fire effect. Like as an action a player could activate his fire aura, and then as a free action, modify his aura using fire mastery so that one of his arms was not covered by the aura. If...

Re: Light Burster

Both are viable. I have seen an electric version on this board already--search for burster and you should find it. Laser is order but I don't see why it couldn't happen.

I had a problem with this when running the final encounter in Garnet Town. The caster just couldn't hurt the GB.

Re: [Savage Rifts] The Great D-Bee Race Conversion Thread

Heroic and Bloodthirsty is kind of a rough mix--I'd look askance at a "Heroic" character who never took prisoners, no matter what. If they're meant to be perpetually conflicted, that could work, but otherwise it's going to be nigh impossible to thread that needle if they ever fight anythin...

Re: [SR]How Long to Don/Doff Glitter Boy Armor?

I asked this on the OA forum, and was told there's no specific answer; it was suggested by Clint to use the "1d6 rounds" rule, which seems pretty fair to me.

Re: Disguising Robot Vehicles

Would it be possible to use the power Disguise on vehicles or Robot Vehicles? Not by a strict reading of the RAW, as ValhallaGH pointed out. Personally, I would certainly allow it as a variant Trapping for the mega version of Disguise. (Though I'd still require them to be pretty close in Size; Tita...

Re: [SR] Magical gear sourcing

Thus far, we've gotten no rules about non-TW magical items in SR. In general, I'd suggest the following guidelines until such time as we get hard rules for them: 1: They should be a Big Deal, even for relatively minor effects. They will not be readily up for sale, and people who recognize them for w...
