It's basically 90s Aquaman with less blond and more natural body parts

Ares isn't wrong about the scaling of Reputation economy being a pain, but it has gone through some improvements -- when FC first came out, a level of renown cost a staggering 50 rep before the 2nd printing reduced that a somewhat more affordable 30.

Assuing you can get your GM to agree, my suggestion as to the simplest change would be to rescale the check result from TL+0/5/10/15/20 to something like TL+4/8/12/16/20.

And do bare in mind that what you're acquiring here isn't a check bonus, it's a check result. Which means that it has in effect already factored in all possible situational modifiers. So in situations where modifiers would work in your favour that probably gives you a crappy result, but OTOH pulling this out when all the negative modifers would inevitibly mean failure if your character attempted the roll, it suddenly looks a lot better.

The base state of the rules is that there is no magic, and that even if there is you cannot buy magic items.

Got a page reference for that no-buying rule, because it's not striking a bell? Unless you mean the mention that magic item purchase -- just like every other rule -- is ultimately GM fiat?

Nothing wrong with both.

Beam: The smart projector that fits in any light socket

There's however no indication that you can use it with a laptop, only with android/ios devices.

No further interest or suggestions for the post-apocalypse?

The answer then is to take out the watchman, gas the sleepers, then kill them all where they lay

Because these things always seem to come up.

If you're looking at a new laptop, it probably shouldn't be a Lenovo (aka IBM): In order to inject advertising into secure web pages, since October last year Lenovo has been shipping laptops with a piece of software called Superfish that tampers with Windows' cryptographic security.

"If she's publically declared that she intends to follow her husband to Brandescar I wouldn't bother killing her," Callow!Janus shrugs even as she enjoys the appreciation of her suggestion. "It's only her staying here, likely because she had nowhere else that will take her after being rejected by her cuckhold as a faithless harlot that drove him to murder even as he awaits his own execution, that gives her apparant suicide value as final motive for Barhold's."

I remember reading an interesting article regarding kickstarters and shipping costs. Might be worth taking a look at it:

Interesting articles

"If she remains here and doesn't leave with her husband, we should arrange for the wife's suicide too, as the final impetus for Barhold to take his own," Callow!Janus suggests. "She will be a pariah, responsible in part for the death of two of the tower's captains. Poison seems a reasonable course for her to eventually follow."

Also, the one-shot ended with Peggy joining Stark when he founds S.H.I.E.L.D. While that would be an interesting story to tell, they kinda covered that with Winter Soldier. Setting it where they have allows them to tell a whole new story (Leviathan), while allowing them to bring back characters from the movies (Howling Commandos) as special guests.

All Winter Soldier told us was that Hydra snuck in the back door thanks to Project Paperclip recruiting their scientists (though I also seem to recall that they said the SSR morphed directly into SHIELD rather than being surplanted by it). The series could have easily seen a nascent SHIELD trying to remain ideologically pure but being forced to turn to ex-Hydra brains such as Zola as a result of the struggle with Leviathan.

While it's been fun enough, all Agent Carter has done is bring into question the competence of anyone who would let actual-traitor Carter continue to work for the SSR let alone allow her and former fugitive-from-justice Stark to found an intelligence agency in the first place.

If they'd truly been incapable of seeing any story set post-One Shot and desperately needed Peggy to be working against orders and her collegues, they could have stuck her into play as an undercover internal affairs agent working to uncover a traitor that leads them to Leviathan.

The will save is already enough to make that spell virtually useless against mages with their high will saves and probably good wisdom. Not to mention magic items with spell effect.

Like I said, makes sense to make it a Fortitude save as it's a physical effect suppressing the creation of noise, rather than a mental one making you ignore noise because how would that even work for people outside the AoE.

The one person ruins the effect for everyone. Though to a degree I don't think the spell should get a save at all, at least with respect to standard NPCs.
