Re: Savage Rifts® Foes of NA Errata

Page 90, Greater Demon Toughness a bit off. Listed benefits come to 42 (23). 10 from Vigor, 6 from Size, 3 from Hide, and 23 from stacking armor. Shouldn't it be 12 from Vigor? Half Vigor + 2 + 4 for high Vigor. Or is the Half Vigor + 2 = Toughness just a player character thing? Per the core rules ...

Just keep in mind the limitations. Someone only has to remove one device not five, and disabling the Growth power in any way also disables all the Contingent powers as well.

Re: Nonlethal Powers

Is it possible for powers to be used nonlethal? I see Cold/Ice and Fire/Heat have fatigue options but those look like they are in addition to the lethal damage they do. If my Weird Scientist creates his Phantasmagorical Static Energy Re-director (bolt) is it possible for him to set his PhaSER to st...

Re: [TLP] Woodsman edge & scouts

Re: [SR] Robot armor and damage without a Raise

In the normal vehicle rules, "Damage that equals or exceeds the vehicle’s Toughness forces the driver to make a Driving roll or go Out of Control. Each raise on the damage roll also inflicts a 'wound'." Savage Rifts says "If a suit of robot armor suffers a wound, the operator must ma...

Re: Toughness of robot armor, and the limits of Savage Worlds

There's been some discussion of how even the toughest mechs tend to pop really fast in Savage Rifts. Of course a lot of that is just the Fast/Furious/Fun way of things, and the power of heavy railguns is a factor too, but I also feel like Savage Worlds breaks down a little with big damage values.

Re: Rifts HC release Monday?

Re: [DLR] Secrets of Shaolin questions

Just to make sure I understand how this works. Take Martial Arts (DLR version) and the AB (Chi Mastery) edges to start using your "Superpower" powers. To increase your unarmed damage (up from Str only) you need to take Superior Kung Fu edge and then choose fighting style: 1) Eagle Claw - ...

Re: Shaken Questions

Hi, I just ran a little test session with some friends and noticed a reoccurring problem we had. Getting shaken seemed very annoying and deprived characters of their agency in a fight by forcing them to spend their action getting out of it. This eventually led to bennies practically becoming health...

Re: Initiative tie - 2 jokers

I don't imagine this one comes up much, but it did in our game today and we had to muddle through how to handle it. When two jokers are dealt in the same initiative round, how do you resolve who goes first, especially, as happened to us today, when one of the jokers goes to a PC and the other to a ...

Re: SPC-2E Growth Question

So, for the Growth Power. It says that each time Growth is purchased that it adds one step to the character's strength? Is that a die type? Or a numerical bonus, as is the case with Toughness? It's the normal progression for Traits, a die type up to d12 where it becomes a +1 per step. So a characte...
