I always just figured it was one of the many ways Fantasy Craft makes different fighting styles distinct. Cleave is something unique to melee weapons, in much the same way that melee gets the best option for converting attack bonus to damage (All-Out Attack giving double the payoff of ranged's Bullseye, and unarmed having no equivalent feat at all).

Also true. We also don't feel a desperate need to create absolute parity across fighting styles, trees, or any other organization. Game design and development are a LOT more organic than that, or they should be.

  Because its such an absurdly powerful effect that each of the three attack types should/would have its own separate feat. The ranged version is Carnival of Carnage Smiley.

Except there aren't equivalent unarmed and ranged feats, at least in anything that's been officially released, which is what makes Cleave's splendid isolation in melee so noticeable.

To be honest, I'd fight vehemently against any version of this ranged feat ever appearing anywhere. It's pretty much broken IMO.

The unarmed one... Maybe eventually. We'll see.

Hm... Any good?

It's addictive. The game play is not that complicated, but the timers and Gestapo will keep you on your toes.

Cool. I've installed it and will give it a whirl when I have the time. Thanks for the recommendation!

Spymaster for iPad (haven't tried iPhone). Head a spy network in occupied Europe during WWII. Game is free, with microtransactions for in-game cash (for quicker advancement).

Hm... Any good?

We'll have further details about purchasing options sometime in the next month or so.

Perfect. In the meantime I'll prime the trebuchet and have a small woodland creature stuffed with non-sequential bills standing by. I hope you have a net.

I'm sure we can fashion something from all the drafts we've plowed through over the years.

From the announcement, I'm still left with one question: will the Omnibus collection of the 12 PDFs be available separately, or should we just grab the package of separate PDFs + the Omnibus?

We'll have further details about purchasing options sometime in the next month or so.

Starting to look through them now and noticed that the TOC for both the Skirmisher and the Witch Hunter both have "Building/Playing the Shinobi"

Huh. I specifically asked the graphic designer to fix that. He must have missed it in the chaos of the final hours. So it goes...

Salvation could have been quite good, but it was screwed with the whole TermiMarcus plot line (at least they backed out of their planed ending of Marcus wearing John's carcus like a suit). Rise of the Machines by contrast is the average movie in the set.

I rather liked Rise. I stand by my initial assessment that movie being a worthy sequel to the first two.

I think this spell has to hand out the bleeding condition itself, if it's going to interact with that condition at all. Otherwise it's just too niche to ever use.

Personally, I love bleeding as a cost. It's evocative, a real penalty (especially at low levels), and it's minor enough that if you get clever and bypass it, the spell is probably still balanced.

Handing out the bleeding condition as an offensive action is also good. It doesn't fill the "...of heroes" requirement, but it's real (especially at low levels), but still minor enough that it's in line with other cantrip effects. It also has a great deal of existing support built in already, so it lets you exercise parts of the system that are already there (rootwalker immunities, Salt the Wound, etc.).

Also, Fantasy Craft needs a TV Tropes article.

Ha! You guys crack me up. Smiley

I bought the bundle a couple days ago, and I'm looking forward to trying them out in a game. I also noticed that the contents of the bundle are 3 of the 5 hottest titles right now on DriveThruRPG. Congratulations!

Thanks!  Grin

That happens whenever they release stuff. Cheesy

It's nice to be appreciated, it really is. Thank you all.

Neat!
13  Legacy Games / Spycraft 2.0 / Spycraft 2.0 Now Officially a Legacy Game on: December 01, 2014, 11:38:15 AM
As promised, we've shifted Spycraft 2.0 down into the legacy games category. This means very little for the day-to-day, except that messages about the game now appear down here. Also...

  • It's a clear message that we at Crafty HQ are now done developing for the line and there will be no further new releases.
  • It's also a clear message that we aren't likely to update Spycraft 2.0 products again. We might update the SMS titles since they're so new, but even then it's one more time and out (again, if it happens). Any errata after that will be folded into the errata documents and live exclusively there.
  • It is not us saying you can't or shouldn't play the game anymore. In fact, we hope folks continue to play Spycraft 2.0 and all their favorite games - made by us and by others - for many years and decades to come.
  • It is not us saying that you can't or shouldn't continue to kit-bash your own material for the game or post it in the License to Improvise forum. Again, we hope folks continue to do that for a long time yet, and now you can do so with a full view of every official product for the line that will ever be released.

So that's it for this one. Let's look to new shores, shall we? We have a few ideas where we might look next...

A buff conditional on being damaged is very classy.

Hard to argue.

Good ideas all around.
