Re: Steed Attacks

We just treat trained mounts as Extras. So they go on the rider's Initiative and would use their own Fighting for the attack. Most of the time we give them the gang-up bonus from the rider. If the attack hit then, in this case it would be Str+d6. The extra bonus of 4 damage for moving 7" is hug...

Re: RIFTS Character Folio PDF formatting

If you're using Acrobat, you should be able to select Option-E (I don't normally work on a Mac, so the key combo may be slightly different) -- it's CTRL-E on a PC and get a toolbar with paragraph editing. Try using different line spacing to get it to line up. Either a 10 pt or 12 pt spacing should w...

Re: Rifts HC release Monday?

A few years ago when we first complained about the size gap of the books it was announced that eventually all products would get the graphic novel size tx. Is that any guarantee that there'll be a hardcover edition in that size, though? The Deluxe Explorer's Edition was never released in hardcover ...

Re: Introducing total begginers to deadlands + managing a large party

I've looked at envy and daddy's boy and they seem pretty good, though I thought one sheet were supposed to last for 3 hours or something and I hardly see how those can take three hours. I have played through Daddy's Boy and it end d up taking two game sessions. Granted there was a lot of inner play...

Re: [SPC2] Arcane Background Super powers free edge?

It depends on the setting. But with SPC2 it's assumed all player characters start AB (Super Powers). Not sure what page is on, but it talks about it under character creation.

Yep, all the current books that PEG produces are full color. If you have the Lankhmar PDFs the books will look exactly the same.

Re: A good ol' fasioned bar fight. Suggestions?

I thought that it was a crap way to handle a bar room brawl, with three PC's with d4 Fighting rolling at -2 they would have just been onto a hiding to nothing. A high probability of losing a bar room brawl and potentially -1/ -2 Fatigue before the campaign even starts. Didn't think that would be mu...

Re: A good ol' fasioned bar fight. Suggestions?

There's a brawl in SaaHP that is handled using a Dramatic Task. It worked well, those that failed ended up with Fatigue from Bumps and Bruises.

Re: LF Fantasy Adventures / Question about Ranks

If your players make it into Legendary and the campaign legitmately continues on, what does Legendary Rank mean for the GM? Something to keep in mind with SW is that a lone goblin with a lucky roll can take out a Min-Max Legendary character. So, while Legendary characters are tougher and able to ha...

Re: [SR] Running Murderthon - Advices

Actually, I was more concerned about my player saying something like: "Why should I roll a Strenght check, when I can just run smashing through the obstacles?" Moving at 20" is 4d6 damage AP18. The GB should cut through the obstacles like butter, so the other Legionnaires dont' have ...

Re: colored fate chips? why? (reloaded)

What's so different ? Why would anyone ever use a red chip as red (and not white)? What's so great about blue? You can't use a white if you roll a 1 to avoid backlash/malfunction/crisis of faith/etc, it has to be a red/blue? I'm obviously missing something. As others have pointed out, +1d6 can be h...

Re: "Roleplay" Hinderances

The one question I would have, is how does this work outside combat? If you don't role-play being arrogant to anyone you meet you lose a Benny? That's a bad thing since the GM can contrive situations where the group will lose a Benny to try and advance the game, all the while the GM is getting a Ben...

I'll see about finding a copy of the Sci-fi book. Thank you!

The race creation rules are in the Rifts player guide. Pretty much the sam as the creation rules in the sci-fi book, but slightly updated.

No. All the weapons that have the "Auto" note are fully automatic weapons. But if every weapon with RoF 2 and more is an automatic weapon - ''Automatic weapons (those with an RoF of 2 or higher)...'' page 79 from SWDEE - so why additionally show it in Notes? ValhallaGH is right, S-F Compa...

Taking a look at my own PDF of the Player's Guide, I see no such message on the credits page (assuming I haven't gone blind). Mind you, this isn't from the most recent update, so I suppose it could have been added since then. Should be on the sticky since most of the time the same file is used for ...

Re: Ranged parry?

As I said up-thread: Ignoring setting rules, the only things a character can do to improve hit rates with ranged attacks are: Aim action (+2, cannot move), move to reduce penalties (range and cover), spend advances. Two play options and a few build options. Ignoring setting rules, a character can d...

Re: Ranged parry?

i wouldn't recommend such an edge. it makes ranged attacks next to useless. you are better off giving characters access to dodge and improved dodge. most people who would take this edge are bound to minmax their parry. literally building a base of 8 from a d12 fighting, supplementing it with acroba...

Re: Ranged parry?

Iron Dynasty does have an edge that does this. I can't speak to how it effected play because no one took it. It was a fairly difficult edge to get. Beasts & Barbarians — Jalizar book has an Edge that does this as well. It works fine in that setting and never seemed overpowered or unbalancing. G...
