my games all seem to be there. i did not notice the logo change.
It took me a few hours to notice the change.  My games have all been fine, as far as I know.

...I'm just weird.
Also true, but in a good way.   Tongue  Grin

This seems to me to be a direct result of the militarisation of America's police forces by the DHS in the wake of 9/11.
Nothing good comes of cops playing soldier at work.  And no, your department doesn't need armored vehicles.  DoD needs to stop giving out used MRAPs and DHS needs to die in a fire.

Who named this thread "Can't be as bad as last year"?  That was just asking for it.   Sad

I'd like to see more stuff, so I'm down to buy most things that are at a price point I can swing.  (And aren't awful.)

I remember the look on my GM's face when she botched the notice checks for all of Lone Star as the "uniformed" shadowrunners walked out of the elevator, past the cops and down to the garage with the target in the trunk of her matched luggage, we brought the whole set, was priceless.

Speaking to the cinematic aspect:  How often is a crossbow used in cinema by a hero?  They tend to be the weapons of mooks or assassins.  (The only one I can recall was, I think, from Robin Hood:  Men in Tights and the bad guy had some tricked out sniper crossbow.  It might have been some other movie, definitely a comedy though.)

The timing of reloads is part of the crossbow, as is for non-cartridge firearms.  (Well, for all firearms, but not to the same degree when you get to cartridges.)

One of the things that I really like about FantasyCraft is the cinematic feel being mostly backed up with historical and physical realism.  A first level character is exceptional, but someone you can find in a history book.  (Then you run off and go crazy.)

Then it is accurate. An experienced (feated)archer can do all sorts of bonkers things that were not matched until percussion cap firearms.

But Deadpool isn't really a pluckish rogue.
But he could be described as a Puck-ish imp.   Evil

Time to escape Earth and turn the rest of the universe to ash. It sounds like it is out to get us.  (Electromagnetic radiation of space in the 20-20,000 kHz sounds creepy as hell when turned into sound waves.)

... the Israel Military has managed to shell a hospital...
Did the whole hospital go down, or did just the floor with the Hamas HQ burn?

One question about the upgrades.  Elf, Lightweight, Ceremonial armor has a weight modifier of -100%.  I have not seen anything on minimum weight so what would you all rule for someone with such armor?  By the RAW the armor would have a weight of zero, but that does not seem reasonable.

I would say that the percentages are applied seperately. That way a suit of lightweight, Cerimonial, elven plate weighs 14 pounds (50% is 25, 75% of 25 is 18.75, 75% of that is 14). This isn't the way that most of the other bonuses work. but it also makes a lot more sense than completely weightless gargantuan sized full articulated platemail.
It seems fairly hand-wave-able in a magic heavy world, plus super expensive and super light and less protective makes sense to me.

That said, however stuffed as the boxes might have been there wasn't a shortage of troops, supplies, or officers willing to back that choice. If the fix was in, it was a popular fix all same.
There were constant shortages of troops and supplies in the south.  All they really had going for them were their generals.
