Positioning doesn't matter too much vs the Ravagers.

Wolf Pack Mastery gives them flanking so long as any other ally is adjacent. If you play them with even a modicum of intelligence, they get their sneak attack die more often than not.

The Ravagers are a tough critter but . . .

That said, Bandages are 3 silver for 10 uses, so I'd suggest filing this under 'lessions learned' that bandages are a very important part of the adventurer's kit.

I had one of my players, who plays a Crafter, spend a week of downtime making Bandages for some reason. When he rolled a critical success, he ended up with 150sp worth of Bandages. Once we stopped laughing our asses off at the table, he started distributing Bandages to everyone.

50 Bandages at 10 uses apiece. We probably played that campaign for two years after that and they never did use them all.

The rules you are looking for are on pages 73 & 162 of the Fantasy Craft Second Printing.

Page 73 under Build / Improvise: "With success against the itemís Complexity, the character gains an improvised version of the item that lasts until the end of the scene or until it suffers damage, whichever comes first. All checks made with the item are untrained and the error ranges of all checks made with the item increase by 2."

Page 162 under Medical Supplies bandages have a Complexity of 5D. So with a crafting check of DC 5 you can make improvised Bandages. Bandages negate the Bleed condition and don't require a check, so the untrained part and the error range increase won't usually matter. So you don't even need to have the Medicine (or Craft skill, really) to pull this off.

Mathias assessed the fellow in front of him. Despondent. Upset. Deep into his cups. Typical traits of a ship's crew but atypical for a ship's captain. They may have commandeered his ship. An empathetic approach may work best.

"My apologies. I didn't mean to be rude." Mathias chose a seat next to the man and sat down. "Obviously you have more important things on your mind than my business at the moment, it can wait."

Mathias ordered a pair of drinks before he frowned and continued. "It's a woman, isn't it? Few things cause guys like us as much distress. If you need to talk about it, I'll be here when you need me."

Dude, lay off the doctors. Nobody likes physical therapy but they're only trying to help.

And your callsign was GumNut? Really!? What did you do to piss off Control?

And is it true that, by RAW, there is no sort of penalty for firing when adjacent to any enemy? (Do most GM's use a GM fiat penalty? Note: I don't quite care, either way).

There was a discussion about this a while back:

Basically, there is a rule by RAW that may limit it if the GM desires.

Our group also had this head-scratching moment.  I ultimately made it an application of Resolve / Concentrate, which reads "A character must make 1 Concentrate check per round when the GM determines that his current action(s) are threatened by one or more distractions."

Mathias approached the slumped figure. "Captain Dacidus?" Mathias said, giving the man a concerned look. "I had hoped to discuss some matters of import with you but in your current state I am not sure you are even capable of speech."

Hopefully the Aesonian gods favor us because the dice gods are hating us right now.

Yea, the drinking dens are a good place to start. If we can track down any of the ship's crew they should be able to give us some information about what happened on the ship during the last voyage and maybe point us to Dacidus or his first mate.

Also, I'll ask Cathal to come with us in case someone tries to jump us.

If/when Spellbound finally does get released, will we ever get the complete low-down on the project's history?

When. WHEN it is released.

And probably not, for 3 reasons:

1) I don't think anyone wants to hear us make excuses;
2) I don't believe we need to justify ourselves (we're trying, but business);
3) I prefer we spend our time looking at doing things better in the future, rather than wringing our hands about things we can't change in the past.

Unless it offers proof that Krensky held something back from his field report about the Mayan new year in 2012 when his expenditure report was for $247,499.87 cents yet listed "Hotel.  Rental Car.  Air Fare." and then "Misc."  Misc being the bulk of expenditure.  I swear, the guy smiles at the AP lady just right and she doesn't even notice a quarter of a million dollars spent on "Miscellaneous"....

I'm pretty sure I remember about a third of that "Misc." as being earmarked for a bribe to get the expense report through the bureaucracy.

Scarily accurate.

Basically you're arguing that the rules don't allow something they're silent on because you don't like it.

The rules aren't silent about it. The rules are actually very explicit. Charge is a done as part of a run. Run requires straight-line movement unless you have another ability that lets you change direction.

Honestly,. it seems more like you're making up rules that don't exist because you don't like it than the other way around.

Now, if you want to allow swooping charges at your table, fine, that's your perogative, but that is not the rules as written.

As designed, it looks like it would have to use gimbaled thrust vectoring.

The nozzle on the ass end can be angled to aid in both turning and to keep the ass end up in flight. The 2 front fans provide the lift to keep the thing level and allow for rolling.

-Diamond (birth name unknown), [F] Canadian Ranger
"They'll never know what hit 'em."
(click to show/hide)
Diamond earned her nickname in training for being an extreme hardass and was not well liked by her squad mates. She was recruited during the first alien war but XCom was overrun while her transport was enroute to the base. Rather than capitulate to the aliens, the transport set down in a remote location where the pilot and new recruits made a pact of their own. XCom may have been beaten, but the fight was far from over.

I want to add a few more that were on that same transport. They've been covertly undermining Advent for the last 20 years before they learned about XCom's renewed activity.

How did he get his eye back?

Could just be a Critical Injury (Head Trauma, half visual range), which would heal up in 1d4 months.

Or maybe the halfling on the cover of the Fantasy Craft book was from a scene as told by the halfling on the cover of the Adventure with obvious embellishments.

Halfling: "So there I was, battered, beaten and broken, my eye mangled beyond repair. But the giant, oh yes, the giant, he fared far worse."

Child: <raising hand> "Um, um, if your eye was gone, how come you still have it now?"

Halfing: "Quiet kid, I'm telling a story here. Suddenly, there was a blood-curdling roar as a creature descended from on high . . ."

Other Child: "But how could you see where it was . . ."

Halfling: <interupting> "I only lost one eye kid, now be quiet. Now where was I? Oh yes, as a creature descended from on high intent on finishing us all."
