1  Products / Spycraft Third Edition / Re: what brought you into spycraft on: September 15, 2014, 10:32:04 PM
I am a fan of D&D3.x and the OGL.  Perusing my FLGS, I came across Dark Inheritance and that in turn piqued my interest in finding out more about SpyCraft.  I was hesitant about getting into Classic SpyCraft so late in the game but jumped on board as soon as I saw SC 2.0.

What I'm not looking for in 3rd party product:
-Adventure module

What I'm looking for in 3rd party product:
-Monster manual....can never have too much...
-Psionic handbook...I would love to use FC to run Dark Sun...just saying...
-Setting...and a full setting at that.  I would eat up the inevitable splatbooks that detail the world if the setting grabbed me.  Having more species and masterclasses specific to the setting would be a plus.
-Something similar to Unearthed Arcana to show alternate mechanics that would work seemlessly with the core FC mechanic giving you viable alternatives that would better fit your vision of a world.
-Must be a physical product.  If you only offer it as a pdf, I won't bother getting it.

Tried out the new version of Wiz-War and realized that the classic version was much more fun for several reasons.

1) The new version ends too quickly for any one of pulling off hilarious moves.  You only need 2 points to win.

2) The wizards die too easily.

3) The boards are boring playgrounds.  It is compounded by the movement rules.

There are some neat things about the game:

1) The pieces are beautiful!  I absolutely love the count down counter.

2) Cards have multiple uses.

3) Game doesn't drag

I believe it is basically impossible to convert RIFTS OCCs/RCCs to FC's Class system.  The first problem you have to overcome is the front-loadedness of Palladium chargen.  There are multiple powers that define each OCC/RCC upfront whereas in FC, there is just the core ability that really define the class and one other ability that starts you off on that class' journey.  The second problem is the balance issue.  FC, from its d20 legacy, is geared towards balanced gameplay whereas RIFTS throws that concept out the window.

Trying to make a straight conversion is neigh impossible so you have to find that one essence that really define that class and build around that essence using FC's class structure.  You also have to decide how balanced you want the classes to be.  The more balanced you want, the more you'll find that it feels less like RIFTS OCC/RCC.  SO you have to figure out how much of a sacrifice you are willing to make in either direction.

In my experience, I've tried to convert it to d20 and Savage Worlds.  It really was a nightmare.  However, I found a system that can accomodate almost all the RIFTS concepts effortlessly.

This may be old news to you guys but I just found out today that Alcatraz got canceled.  I was looking forward to next season.  Oh well..

The one that I will miss though will be "Missing".  I really got into that show and am sad to see it no longer produced.

Who among us saw the Dark Shadow movie.  I want to hear from those of you who saw it before I go see it.  I wanted to see 21 Jumpstreet because I was a huge fan of the TV show but the movie's portrayel really turned me off so I guess I'm being a bit cautious.

I downloaded mine just this morning.  I tried yesterday but apparently there was a problem with the link which was fixed by the time I downloaded it today.  I really like the clean look of it and plan on participating in the playtest.  I really loved 3.x, hated 2nd ed, and was luke warm with 4th ed.  I don't know if this iteration will topple 3rd ed but it looks to come close.

It didn't lessen the "oh, f*&^" moment for me.  In fact I'm anticipating the next season even more.

I saw the Spidey trailer before the Avengers movie and I was very disappointed with the actor playing Spidey as well as the one possibly playing Mary Jane.  The Actor looked nothing like Peter Parker.  The Sam Raimi's Spidey was much better.  If that is Mary jane Watson, she is also miscast.  I hope she is Gwen Stacey, Parkers first GF.  The story seems to be following the Ultimate series, what with the mystery surrounding Peter's father.

As for the 3D, after the Superman movie, I decided not to watch anymore 3D films unless they had 3d specifically in mind and not just as an afterthought.  The best example is Avatar.  That movie was made with 3D in mind.  I also tend to watch computer animated films in 3D too.

Didn't realize that the John Carter movie was doing badly.  I was all hyped about watching it and wasn't disappointed.  I never read the book so maybe that has something to do with it?

Finally got to play Race for the Galaxy.  I was really impressed with the production value and game mechanics.  The artwork is nice, I love that there are different factions, the action sequences remind me of Peurto Rico without the nasty effect it has on newbies.  The only thing I didn't like was that there was one card which so far gave the win to whomever managed to obtain it.

We've played it a few times, and it is good fun (and nicely presented).  The only problem I had was that like the "I win card" there's a few combinations that basically give you the victory that we've come across.  Not many of them, but there are a couple times you see one of the other players add a certain card to his tableau and all you can really do is concede.

We've also experienced the same thing and there is one card that I can't remember the name of that we have banned because whoever obtained that card won.

Picked up Resident Evil: Revelations last week and been having a blast with it.  Capcom went all out in wanting to provide a console experience on a handheld and they delivered.  Love the episodic flow of the game!  Finally was able to unlock the Raid mode in which you can play co-op with someone over the internet.

In a week, Resident Evil Revelation is coming to the 3DS.  I got to play a demo and I was impressed with the console quality it portrayed.  The only drawback was the control scheme but the circle pad pro should take care of that.  I haven't played Resident Evil since #3 and am glad that it is going back to its root.
