I haven't shared the story about my room-mate and his innocuous questions recently, and this seems like a good time.

He'll occasionally come up and ask me something really trivial, like "are there fluffy bunnies in your campaign setting?" Years ago I'd just answer "Yes, of course," and go back to what I was writing... only to have him (metaphorically) dump some appaling character build on my desk about 30 minutes later that used fluffy bunnies to power an unstopable scheme for world domination!!!

After a few times of that happening (and a number of revisions and corrections to rules under test and a couple of full-on errata being issued for SC 1st ed comming directly from these harmless sounding questions), I learned that when he asks me something, the correct answer is not the first thing that pops into my head... the correct answer is "Why?" Roll Eyes.

So, when Mr. A asked:

Can dwarves (or any medium sized species) make large-scale weapons?

What I heard was "Are there fluffy bunnies in Fantasy Craft?"

...Mostly because Alex and I already know where this one is going Wink. I encourage the interested reader to go back and look at the thread about the Martial Arts feat from shortly after release. I offered up a short sketch of what I thought was probably one of the most vicious combat builds possible for the system. I guess nobody asked me "Why?" Cheesy
So many bunnies... When are you running a game again? Smiley

Nine meters is about 10 feet.  Meters x 3.2808 if you really want to be excessively precise.
According to google..
1 meter = 3.2808399 feet
so 9 X3.28=29.52
or 30 feet Smiley

9m is 30 feet, roughly.

Oh yeah, but you don't want to do encounters around beating a specific PC. But IIRC with the lumbering he is flanked with 2 enemies next to him, does that mean he looses guard then?
Hey now, just because an ambush happens to shut down the Towershield wielding tree... doesn't mean he was the reason for the ambush...

Well I gave the FC book to one of my more min/max players to peruse and he came back with a rootwalker 'defendinator'. Multi-armed, mist-branched soldier with shield Mastery at level three. So he is armed with 5 tower shield (giving a guard of 25) and using his slam III (2d8 damage, off the top of my head).

He was quite surprised when I said 'go for it'; I will run the game for a few goes before I start denying options. Be interesting to see if I can actually hit him when we play after finishing our 4E campaign....
Is Sorcery in play? If So, call lightning II a few times Smiley
If not, just work around him... ambushes are good, because you lose guard bonuses when flat footed, ect.. you can also let him play tank to let his build shine when you aren't pointing out that its a bit flawed Smiley

In theory, couldn't the NPC stats be used in either game?

Just a random question before I vote.

I got it fixed. It looks like flashgot was causing the issues
382  Community / Customer Service / Drive Thru RPG download issues on: December 03, 2009, 10:53:03 PM

Any Ideas?

A FC version of the field anaylyst, the slueth(spymaster!) The virtuoso.

According to a local news station it is like "Grand Theft Auto meets World of Warcraft". It looks interesting, and it is nice to see a modern day MMO setting without superheroes.

I was sold until I saw the EA logo.

Because of their monopolistic hold on NFL video games and by producing crappy ones (Madden), there is a ban of all EA products in my house.
So you passed on Dragon Age and Mass Effect?

Somehow, as a member of the "Han shot, period" faction, giving this class some sneak attack dice feels promising Smiley.
I like that. Han Shot. Period.

The big thing about martial arts, as a feat, is that it only becomes a must have if the GM is now letting the non combat characters shine, out of combat.  or if the squishy character is simply trying to not be super squishy, because combat is ruling all.

As for weapon finesse, the idea is to reduce the viability of stat dumping, by making all stats useful as often as possible.  Even in using the trick from practice makes perfect, you are denying yourself other tricks, (unless you take levels in edgemaster) which reduces the amount of "cool" you can do, by focusing on a single attribute.

Also, if you are truly worried about gimping your combat potential, by not investing heavily in strength,  look at the defense tables in the npc section, to get an idea of what your to hit needs to be for better than even odds of success against a defense X npc.

Replaced keeper with the words non combatant class

I got invites as well Smiley I am holding a couple, but I can toss out the other 6

What they really need is an Android app.
Yes, that would rock
389  Community / Off-Topic / Re: Google Wave on: November 22, 2009, 06:29:49 PM
What I honestly think is holding back wave, is that there isn't a non web based interface yet.  If it was like other IM clients, where you could have it running in the background, and when a new wave came in, be instantly aware of it, it would probably be better.  Even if the client just dinged, like the old AOL You've got Mail tone.

Something akin to final fanatsys blue magick and the blue mage?  Or perhaps a conversion of dark inheritances gnostic, to use paths rather than spell points?
