Re: Don's comics

We're working on this. My dayjob has been running 60 hours per week since Jan 1. Sorry.

Re: Feyja's Chariot

I would change the Availability to Unique or Bespoke to fit the language used in the books. Brad, what do you think of the mechanics, and the extensions done for cost calculation?

Re: Villian Hissing

On the Feckless Sociopath, I had more in mind a very masculine, sort of Ayn Rand-ish type of character, some Prosperity Gospel jerk who quotes Adam Smith out of context and believes that he deserves his success at whatever it costs to other people, that's not his problem. I figured to make him a Mis...

Re: TDC (Tentacle Deployment Cannister) for Weird Scientist

You could make it a Spellcasting Test using the user's Perception and the Spellcasting Rank of the WS who built it, and then a Willforce Test again using the user's WIL and the WS's Skill Rank. That would be more in keeping with deploying a Bind spell from a tactical device.

Going for the Deep One here? Just a picky point, barding is horse armor.

Re: Weird Scientists

Yeah, it's not considered magic =in the fiction=, but mechanically is magic and uses the Enchanting rules. This is in fact laid out early in the Magic chapter of the Players Guide: The Weird Scientists don’t generally believe in magic as magic per se. They believe that a previously untapped energy s...

Re: Disease

I went with Attribute points for TB and Typhoid to slow the progression. If you lose an Attribute point, you might not lose a Step. Trying to keep the diseases historically and medically accurate and yet make the RAW a little less brutal.

Re: Saurids on Earth

This is a woman who, like the current Queen, chooses her jewelry to send subtle messages. She does nothing without a purpose. And in the game world at least she's a better person than to keep sentient beings as pets. The real Victoria? When presented with the daughter of an African chief as a gift b...

Re: A Heart in the Wrong Place [Adventure]

Denouement, I believe. Interesting continuation of the Earthdawn-1879 crossover. I'm still curious as to how there's enough mana to support cadavermen and what is effectively a lich. Has he got a mana focus?

Re: Um, nunyah business

It's a tenuous connection. Was the 2nd Earl in cahoots with the Sons when he founded the Club, or did they just take advantage of it? You could read the text of that entry in several different ways. The painter, for example. Are those actually his sons, or are they apprentices in the arts or spycraf...
