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.

Given that an increasing number of RPG releases are debuting through KickStarter (see everything Oynx Path do for instance), and as Pat mentions above o/s postage is inevitably a killer on both sides of the equation, I've started vaguely wondering if a pledge tier for us o/s folk of "1 voucher for [base physical item], redeemable via Amazon" is in any way a feasible idea?

I've mixed feelings about KS for Spycraft the third...

On the one hand I hope that this financing model helps you to be able to publish the game on the conditions that you need to make it feasible... On the other hand it kind of leaves me out of the project. SC3 is a game I want to have in paper, and probably, with me living in Spain, it will mean that I will have to wait for it to be avaliable through amazon and the likes, because the shipping cost for this kind of products in ks usually makes them unreacheable for my economy... We'll see.

Same boat here. Except it has to sail further Sad

(by way of comparison, currently on Amazon the Fantasy Craft core book is US$35.53  + US$10.50 shipping)

What about multiple versions of a move reducing the AD cost to activate crits/expand threat range instead of increasing hit/damage bonus?

"If we really want to mess with their heads when it comes to autopsying the events of the next few hours, why not attach the message to a rock, have one fo you magic users make it glow, then drop it into their midst from a great height?" Callow!Janus joins her thumbs together and flaps her hands like wings, then brings them sharply downwards to illustrate her words. "It will be taken to Mott directly or he'll come to inspect it himself. Alternatively, sneak in via the tunnel disguised as one of the meat, hand the message over to someone to pass to Mott, then return the way you came. Though simplest to just leave the incriminating letter on Mott's bed, yes?"

So it's snowing, and if so means that someone might be able to track the messenger back to the inn?
