Re: Spellcasting skill

IIRC, mundane spell crafting was possible in Shadowrun, too. Mundane conjuring, even. It was hard, weak, dangerous and generally a bad idea ... but it was a choice. Mundane summoning is possible. There's a ritual to summon spirits that requires only a set of ingredients (which varies by spirit type...

Questor LP Cost?

How many LP does it cost to advance in the the core Questor devotion? I see it described what the 'Granted Devotions' cost, but the Questor devotion is never described that I can find.

Re: Picking Pockets: Is it an Automatic success?

In real life, pickpocket is also pretty much an automatic success. (snip) But I would rule that the 'clock' starts exactly at the moment the hand gets into the pocket; if the target (or witnesses) are successful on their Perception test, the 'initiative roll' would be set at the exact moment the ha...

Re: Line of sight for casting

i'm not a dev, but on your 4th question, presuming you meant heat sight... thermal vision does not generally speaking penetrate solid objects. <snip> all of which is to say: the point is moot, heat vision won't let you see the person anyways :P Not to nitpick, but I'm pretty sure he was asking if y...

Re: Airship Altitude

In our world ships and airplanes hit things all the time. Recreational boaters and flyers yes, but also professional or military crews. Oil tankers and cruise ships on rocks. Military ships on sand bars. Ships crashing into each other. Airplanes crash into mountains. It happens all the time. <snip>...

Re: Airship Altitude

@Altanius You make extremely excellent points, but when disregarding probabilities of things going wrong, I tend to lean towards what is stated in the book. Yes, one can go into the weeds on the math, but I also think that one ought not simplify things so much that all possibility of failure artifi...
