Sorry, I did not notice this was moving. I will post up a bit later.

Could be worse. It could have been pintsize.

I am not sure I will be on this evening. I just have no idea what we are doing here or why Krasnyy would be coming. i have spoken to no one other then you since we made pc's.

Are we all supposed to be in the same group? and if so, why?

Osirion

Congrats.

Ok, anyone still around. I as always am now undergoing computer trouble. I will not be able to replace my machine for another month or three, sometimes after the first of the year seems likely. Once that is done, I would be happy to restart this if anyone is still willing to play.

Osirion

Yet it pigeon holed it hard and heavy. Itbecame known as an "Asian" magical fighting styles book. Does not matter if it was, it was how it became perceived. The art did not help the matter.

Osirion

I hope dreamscarred does a better job the wotc on the feel of the book. I really think Mundane and magical schools need to be clearly separated. Also I hope the book does not come off as heavily Wuxa as the Bo9s

Osirion

Investigation be damned, DH has a lot of bloody combat. You are expected to fight, expect to kill the heretics. The game is about hunting them down and removing them, for ever.

So yes, the BoM version is Oped as hell for the game its made for. The bad thing is they are under powered for even Rogue trader, much less death watch. for me in my version of 40k, Sob do not exist, they have no point except to be a cheap female space marine knock off..oh yeah with very stupid boob armor.

Regardless, it simply is not worth the cost for the Book, when Deathwatch itself is the only one needed to run female space marines.

Osirion

Was not Blood of Martyr's the one that was really oped for the line? I recall there have been two version of Sisters of battle for DH, one was fine and the other was broken as all hell. Been a while and I simply do not recall which book had which.

@ Sanwah, yeah Space marines being all male because ya know..females are weak and have cooties is something many 40k fans are rabid about. The rest of us call it stupidity. In may games I handle 40k space marines like Battletech elemental. You have both male and female with no difference in the process to create them. I could see all male chapters, just as I could see all female chapters, but most IMO would be mix. They want to best recruits, which sex organ they happen to pee with should not matter.

Osirion

Just use deathwatch as Uzzy says. Dh even with Ascension is well below Deathwatch level of gonzo power. I would just homebrew some SoB stuff and use Dw only. The other books are really not useful for what you want when ya can dig the fluff up online anyhow.

Osirion

I am not really surprised, honestly. Fans have been asking for a 2e for years at this point. And they have pushed the current system pretty far with 5 versions of the same base system. I am not sure why people find it so shocking they would take a stab at something new and designed totally in house.

Hi there..you seem new to 40k :)

Osirion

No,it uses the standard d100's.

Osirion

To be fair, its an old system. DH was not even designed by FFG and they have made revisions of the core rules 4 times now. DH has a tone of splat books some not good at all, so yeah maybe its time to try another system. You already have 5 versions of the Base DH system, a system your company did not design.

But just wait- given the trend of events, 2nd edition Pathfinder will probably remove spellbooks, along with spell failure chance and anything else limiting spellcasters.

To be honest, I would build all casters off the sorcer frame with spell list and abilities based off a theme.

Osirion

You can use just about any system you like, if you put the work into it. Savage world would be my go to for this, doubly so if you have the fantasy compendium. rune quest 2/legend or RQ6 are so good options if you want classless.

Other systems that could work: d6 fantasy, fate,GURPS (Not my cuppa but eh),shadowrun,new world of darkness,earthdawn or just about anything you want to use really.

Honestly, I do not care for them. I think the class would be a bit more balanced if they had a set number per level and no need of the spellbook. If you want to use spellbooks, go the 4e route and divide spells into spells and rituals and make a spellbook a must for rituals.

Osirion

Ok, Now someone needs to do one in Kelvins

Osirion

eh...if you say so..it will always be arcane and hard to comprehend for me.

I can do the same thing with F.

32 F = Water Freezes
212 F = Water Boils

Other useful ranges
65-7 0F = Indoor temperature on your thermostat
90 F = Hot day
98.6 F = Average human body temperature
100 F = extremely hot day

See simple and easy :)

It is really all in what system you are used to for the most part. Paizo is an American company with most its player based in America. So they are gonna use what most of the player base uses.

For me, I can guestimate some of the metric

* A meter is roughly 3 feet
* A KG is roughly 2 pounds
* A Km is roughly 1/2 a mile
* Mm and C are some unguessable and arcane metrics which make not a damned bit of sense :)

Osirion

Come Now, the Wookiee Edition must be in front of those pointy elf bastards!

Osirion

There is also a conversion chart for normal dice and FFG has the sticker page which can be printed out and placed on normal dice or blank ones.

The basic dice mechanics are simple. You have a success, advantage and a triumph symbols on 3 dice( D8-abilty dic,d12 skill dice and a d6 boost dice) and 3 bad syllables threat, failure and desire) on the same type of dice. A 7th dice is a d12 with black and white dots, force, light and darkside. You roll the dice, 1 success is just that, a advantage counts as a success and an advantage you can trade for things and the triumph is only on the d12 and only once is a really, good result.The bad dice are the revirers, if you roll a threat it takes a success away, a failure gives the GM some advantages and the despair is a very bad luck roll that the DM can use to trigger bad thing.

Exsample: Your splicer Has a Intelligence of 3 and 2 skills dice In computers. He is trying to bypass a systems door accesses . His dicepool is 2 yellow skill d12 and 1 green ability dice.The GM decides its an average difficulty so adds two purple d8 difficulty dice. So the Player then rolls 5 dice, 2 Yellow skill, 1 green Ability and 2 purple difficulty dice. Rolling his dice he gets 4 success and 1 advantage, however he also gets two threats. This leaves him with 2 success and one advantage which he spends on learning something new.

So he not only opens the door the GM decides the new thing he learned was that an imperial shuttle had just landed in the docking bay. It might be a good idea to avoid that docking bay.

Osirion

Because, you are used to them. Show your ice to a non gamer and lay them next to the Star wars dice or the dice from WFRP 3e and they would call them all "odd" or custom dice.

That really is the only difference, you are simply used to your odd little dice.

Osirion

Being two of those three, I can tell you I have no issue with the dice and are FAR easier to read then "standard" game dice. And as has been pointed out, "standard" gaming dice are custom dice.

I suggest looking over some pregens and maybe the Free rpg day Mod of you can get it. It plays far better then it sounds and those dice are fairly intuitive and are damned easy to pick up. Far easier in fact then games like pathfinders with the endless little mods here and there.

Osirion

Most RPG's use several types of "Custom" dice. Its just you are used to the "standard" dice by this point. I have to agree with Slauuyeh, the dice flow very nice and bring something to the game that would be clunky and lacking with standard dice.

Sometimes to do something interesting and new you have to use a mechanical that most other games do not. In this case that mechanic also happens to have new types of dice with it. Its odd but works really, really, well.

Osirion

You can use normal dice, there is a conversion chart. However after playing with the dice, go with the dice man. It is a nice system that seems to capture the feel and the dice are a part of that.

I would recommend.

I am kinda glad I did not see the same movie as some people.

Osirion

heh did not reject his fathers teachings, every lesson made him what he was. He recalled the fear, but also the lessons about what kind of man he could be.

This movie showed us clark, showed us his very human side and to me that makes it the best of the superman movies.

Osirion

No Ninja, what you saw was a man terrified for his son. A man who lived in fear his son would be taken or so alienated he would never have a life. You see that, all thought he movie him trying to help his son, but always fearful others. He was not so much scared they could physically harm his son, but mentally scare him and make him into a monster he could so very easily become.

well, No you saw clark the whole time. He was not superman until much later. The whole movie was really clark, finding himself and his place.

Yes i was an unsuperman move, however it was a very, very human one. Zod wanted to die, he had nothing left, he was built for doing one and only one thing. His drive was over and he put Kal in a spot where he had to chose, watch his new people die or end Zod.

Osirion

He was a colonel but did indeed have some good interaction.

Now THis was a superman movie! I loved the whole thing, it was a fantastic take on the whole thing.

I agree with DM Wellard the nOn cartoonish Zod was awesome, and you understood him, he had goal and reason you got. You many not have agreed with them, but you understood him.

On Clara and the GI

Spoiler:

The GI was not always attacking the doctor directly, he was changing his timeline, he set up little diversions, go left where the doctor went right, take this door as its unlocked when it used to be the other. Clara was simply changing things back to how they should have been. Look back at some of the things he has done and change one little option and maybe he lived, but failed.

Like the scene with the Tardis theft, he was gonna take one, she pointed him to another,the GI could easily have arranged him to think he was taking a good one by changing the data and he was in fact taking the incorrect one. After all that very decision as to which one to steal had a massive butterfly effect. Can you think of all the changes with a working Tardis and no mad man in a blue box?

Many of you play in my other game and will most likely have seen the post I made there.

I have had alot of issues of late, which I am not gonna go into, but you guys know my post rate has been bad. Sorry for that, I really am. However, all of it is not just the issues, but a very real case of system burn out. I think I need to step away for a bit.At this point, I really need to stop dragging everyone down with me and put this game on hiatus for a month or two, maybe all summer I really do not know right now.I am hoping to pick it back up at that time.

I really want to thank you guys for putting the time in and keeping posting when my post rate has dropped to an abysmal level. I really do appreciate this guys and have enjoyed Gming for you.

When I get back in the right frame and have the time to run this game correctly I'll get in touch. If you guys feel like picking it back up, cool, if not that is cool as well.

Thanks for sticking around, this has been one of the most enjoyable game I have ever had the pleasure of Gming. I wish you all good gaming and hope to pick this pack up again.

You guys are at the end of part two, its down, save for some roleplaying and getting back to the village, but this was the end of part two. At this point, I really need to stop dragging everyone down with me and put this game on hiatus for a month or two, maybe all summer I really do not know right now.I am hoping to pick it back up at that time, but I honestly can not say that I will.

Sigh, it gets the grapple checks free with any of the 10 tenical attacks. It does not have improved grab as written above.

It has improved grab(Ex),but it is not written like what guy posted. I am going by it as written, as I said monsters can change the generic rules, this one does as did the demon thing from the first part.

It does not suffer a -20 and it is a free action.

Nasty but as written

Osirion

male Human 8th level seeker/6th level gamer /4th level bad speller

It does not have the grab ability. So I never looked at the grab ability as it did not have it.

What it has is 10 attacks which, if they hit, it gets a grapple as a free action.

It then has the option to constrict that grapples foe in place of doing a normal attack.

Yes its nasty, but that is the way its written.

Osirion

male Human 8th level seeker/6th level gamer /4th level bad speller

In all honestly I think the monster overrides the normal rules on this one. It makes a grapple as a free action with an attack, it damages anyone it has grapples with constrict, which takes place of the normal attack.

So it can
A: let them go attack again make a whole new roll in which point it can never constrict unless it gives up its other 10 attacks(Makes no sense)
B: Constrict without an attack roll( as it is written) which gives up the attack and it still gets the free grapple check.

The grapple check is a free action, so maintaining to me is also a free action as it is spending an attack to constrict.

Its made to do just what it is doing, grapple as many folks as it can.

Also Kevin, I can find nothing in my Book or the PRd about a -20.

Osirion

male Human 8th level seeker/6th level gamer /4th level bad speller

Well it can indeed do that and it does work that way. Normally grapple is a standard action, however some beasts preform it for free with some types of attacks. Also there is no limit on constrict at all that I can find as it takes the place of an attack. This thing gets 11 attacks, 10 of which it makes a grapple check with it it hits. Last round it attacked 9 times and then used its other two attacks to constrict, which is simply an attack without having to make an attack roll.

Osirion

Corn field since the 20's really. This was a registry error issue I have had for months and kept putting off till the pc became almost un-usable. I had hoped for a smooth transfer and a faster time at it, but as all things with me and machines it never goes smooth and often involves much cussing , head scratching and things that its not suppose to do.

Other then reinstalling one program and recovery of maps I am good at this point.
