Re: [SR] Fennodi and Magic?

Thats's correct. Although because they don't have Restricted Path PPE, they can take the Mystic IF.

Re: [SPC2] Keeping things interesting

Creativity. When I consider using a foe, I think about how that foe can use his powers, resources, and allies to handle a combat against the player characters. Sometimes, that means using a hostage to buy time, or a restraining order against the "masked abuser". :) Usually, it means figur...

Grenades are your friend, plus every fifth trooper should be carrying a firebreather, rocket launcher or plasma injector.

Re: [SR] Pantheons Of The Megaverse Demigods Race

If you're using a bunch of powers from the Super Powers Companion, you may just want to build a super and call them a Demigod. There's a Godling IF and Demigod racial template rattling around here somewhere.

Thanks!


Your welcome. I get the confusion when I go the first edition of the Super Powers Companion, it was months before I understood those rules. It and Invent are two of the most complicated powers.

Re: Super Sorcery Question

The levels in Super Sorcery can be used to activate any of the other powers in the book. You basically gain the ability to use any power to some degree. Each level is a point to spend. Unspent Power Points cannot be used to cast spells. The point Super Sorcery points are not expended and do not rech...

Re: Problem with "tank" PC

The -6 Obscurement penalty is to attack rolls. Why would you apply to the Spirit roll to resist Puppet? Presumably its a Trapping where the lighting penalty adds to the penalty to resist. So in well lit places they'd get bonuses. Eh, as a player I'd be giving any GM trying to pull that some serious...

And if you just want to give them the worst bad day ever? Spellcaster with Obscure (Darkness Trapping) and Puppet (Darkening Trapping). Drop the Obscure on them, inflicting a -6 Obscurement penalty on them. Then hit one of them with Puppet: it's an opposed roll versus their Spirit, but they are at ...

Re: Problem with "tank" PC

I've always played SW in settings where firearms are common. So my experience with melee combat is pretty limited. Last time we made a classical fantasy campaign and decided to use SW as ruleset, instead of D&D. But we got a problem: two players made tanky PCs. They both have Vigor D12, Browny/...

Re: Vampires and Other Iconic Rifts Monsters

I'm new to the Rifts setting, so I'm still wrapping my head around the various monstrous threats of Rifts Earth. I've talked with a few friends regarding the setting and general threats of the world (in a narrative sense, not mechanically)...so I have the sense that the monstrous threats are pretty...

Re: [SR] THE Magic Staff

I've just treated it as an oddball TW device really. You need an AB to wield it, and the one who rolls it picks the powers and trappings, which also determines the general shape.

Re: [SR] Possible option for core Weird Scientists

I don't give it to them for free because it makes them more powerful, and it's worth an Edge. Also your math is a little off. assuming they start with 10 PPE and take every rank's Power Points edge, they would have 7 at Seasoned, 10 at Veteran, 13 at Heroic and 15 at Legendary, which they can spend...

Re: Running SW Supers for kids?

I agree with Freemage. The Core Super Powers is worlds simpler and easier to handle.

If they want to play something unusual, you can use the race creator to fill in the gaps.

Re: [SR] Possible option for core Weird Scientists

snip snip I am doing a poor job of asking my question. What are your reasons for locking the ability behind a pay wall (Edge)? By themselves, TW devices are not over powering, and if you employed the same rule of mechanics to the Weird Science guy as your Edge, but just added as a class feature via...

Re: [SR] Possible option for core Weird Scientists

What if we did treat as an Edge? PPE Battery Requirements: Seasoned, Spirit d6+, Weird Science d8+ Some Weird Scientists become frustrated with not being able to wield the majority of TW device without modification. The more industrious ones have created a workaround in the form of PPE battery. The...
