Re: Penalties to "all tests" vs "action tests" vs Resistance tests.

I think the book could be clearer, but in the section "Game Concepts" it does defines "Effect Tests" in it's own section which for me suggests they are distinct from other tests (i.e. tests which do not represent a specific value). So if you try to hit someone, yes you roll and get a value, but in t...

Re: quick question on additional threads

Hi, I'm the wizard at Calamrin's table - I greatly appreciate him asking the question, and any responses! One of the other things I was really trying to get at in our group discussions (and this is by no means just about the raw mechanics of the system - which I'm now confident I understand), is thi...
