Gentry here's the problem... I rolled a 20 but I'm all out of narration points, so that means the character cannot critical, so critical are not actually tied to character abilities their tied to gamist mechanics ruining immersion every time an issue like that comes up.

It's clear you don't like the kinds of games we make. So... Why are you here? Why not go settle down with a game you actually like?

Moving on, CoD: AW Future tech trailer.  Some good Spycraft fodder right here. 

Nice! Bookmarked. Smiley

Maybe we on the forums should make a promise not to ask about Spellbound for a while?  By this point, I don't think Crafty needs any reminding that we're all eager for it.  I also don't think they need any reminding that it's late.  The only thing we can accomplish by bringing it up all the time is to aggravate everyone.  Personally, I trust them to let us know whenever there is something to know.

Thanks for that. We appreciate it.

On a related note, consider the possibility that zombiefication -- death, resurrection, need to consume the life of others -- is actually a chrysalis stage for something else. Something that the powers that be could well considerable a worthwhile asset.

Then consider that this stage lasts for an identifiable duration and the amount of people consumed has a quantifiable result on what comes out the other end...

It's funny (fitting) that you mention zombification as a step in a process, or as the process, rather than as the end result... Wink

As we've said multiple times, symmetry is not the only issue. If the book dies, it will be because the whole concept is fatally flawed for any company not able to place a single extremely talented person (and no more) in the driver's seat for at least a full quarter with absolutely no distractions of any kind.

That simply may not be possible, and if that happens, then we'll cross that bridge and see what's on the other side.

It doesn't work the same anymore. No, not ready to preview that part of the system yet.

You should be able to log back into the DriveThruRPG or RPGNow store and download a fresh copy that's absolutely current.

Topic Title says it all really, I'm getting a 404 error when I try and download the gm screen insert for fantasycraft from the website.

This one? Works for me.

One last thing: this is a closed line. We already know exactly how many books there could be, and what they could contain. The line tells a complete story end -to-end, and we'll leave it at that. One complete thought, the way narratives are supposed to work.

I don't read French, but the websites out there for Z-Corps indicate an already-existing line of supplements. Are these coming to English-reading FLGS shelves, or is this collaborative effort forking the development?

Our line is an adaptation of theirs. The vast majority of what you'll see if what was in their book but we're producing some original material and skewing the remainder toward our more focused vision for the line.

Bill's and Mezzo's versions both seem like decent places to start. Still pondering.

It is true that you cannot go invisible on command, but the first time you ever do go invisible...you stay that way. Forever. Even when combat starts. Even when you punch a guy in the face.

And while you're invisible, you don't need to make any checks, whether Stealth or Sneak, to become hidden. You can become un-hidden by all the usual methods, sure, but all you need to do to become hidden again is mosey 10 ft. over that-a-way. The distinction between passive Stealth and active Sneaking is meaningless to you, because you don't need to do either.

OK, for the sake of remaining productive - and so I don't just start deleting comments related to this question just to save everyone's bandwidth - let's focus on the idea of tweaking the feat such that it doesn't make you invisible forever, rather than stating - for the umpteenth time - that it does.

The previous poster's comment? Perfectly legit follow-up in the vein of actually solving the problem. This comment? Not so much.

Biker gangs, militia, deserted military units, police units who have lost their cities.  I'm not sure how far down the sociological scale Crafty is willing to go with this license.  Quite honestly I'm not sure how far down that scale I'm willing to play as a game. 

The human condition can get pretty.. ...grim... when society breaks down and power is supreme.  Maybe there are "morale" levels.  This group is black.  Kill on sight.  These guys are Green.  They're known as good guys.  Leave it as an innuendo.  I dunno.. we'll have to see the published product.

We'll be exploring some of this in the book but as usual for us the approach is mostly about setting the stage for whatever you want to do in your games. There's a setting there that's awesome, but in the end it's wide open for you to add, remove, and manipulate as you like.

Honestly, this is feeling like a pretty versatile platform. Amazing what you can do when you dial down the 'End is Nigh' just 1 or 2 notches.

We thought so. Smiley
