New Deus Ex game coming. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

Looks like a direct sequel to Human Revolution, you still play as Jensen even. I'm curious to see what the 'canon' ending is for HR.

I... might be missing the point but, this is almost word for word the same spell from Pathfinder.

It's a neat spell and I wouldn't mind seeing it in FC but, some of the wording will change, right? Like "melee touch attack rolls"?

I just got back from seeing The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies at my local(ish) cinema. Here are my spoiler-free thoughts...

  • It doesn't feel like 144 minutes worth of screen time. Things move at a fairly rapid pace from the first scene.
  • Yes, it deviates from the story presented in the book. By now that should be no surprise to anyone.
  • While it does differ, just about everyone ends up where they're supposed to.
  • We've already heard it, but Billy Boyd's song is an excellent way to close out the series.
  • Not all of the dwarfs get a chance to shine (don't worry, there's no Bombur: Barrel Warrior), but most of the supporting cast did.
  • Dain.

Yes, Dain was awesome.

But... well I'll put this behind a spoiler just in case.

I have a question about the Skirmisher's 'On Deadly Ground' ability. The saving throw for it is 10 + Class level, which seems a little odd compared to other abilities, most are a combination of three factors: Base 10 + class level + ability mod/feats. But, this ability uses just the class level and thus caps out at 20. I am curious if that was intentional or if a piece got left out.

Where is the Spellbound Preview with the Reaper and Conjurer?

It was made available to the people that preordered.

I can't even imagine how an American Diabetic survives.
As a type 2 diabetic it's not easy, believe me.

It's not just sugar for diabetics either, carbohydrates are bad as well because they break down into sugar. They are not as bad as sugar, they elevate your blood glucose levels for longer but not by as much. So, whole grains and stuff preferably, little to no noodles (I miss spaghetti...). The holidays can suck, everyone eating sweets and candies... I still drink some diet sodas though, not a lot and I avoid any caffeinated sodas because the diabetes messes with your blood pressure as well (technically, I am prehypertension).  Oh yeah, sodium... that's not good either, which is also in everything (including that soda).

So yeah, it sucks being a diabetic.

7  Products / Mistborn Adventure Game / Pewterarm Koloss Blooded on: August 21, 2014, 01:42:58 AM
I was looking at the Koloss-blooded stunts in Alloy of Law and noticed that some of them are very similar to some of the benefits and/or stunts for Pewter. I am curious how some of these would stack? Specifically Powerful Legs and Rapid Healing.

Powerful Legs provides the same boosts to speed as burning pewter does, with the exception of the bonus Steps during a Beat. How would the 'overland' speed be affected if a Koloss-blooded with this stunt were burning pewter? What if he also had the Extreme Speed pewter stunt as well, which gives greater 'overland' speed as well as the bonus Steps per beat.?

Rapid Healing is the same as burning pewter, it doubles your healing rate. Is this doubling the double, so x4 healing? or maybe just x3, increasing the multiplier by 1?
8  Products / Mistborn Adventure Game / Re: Koloss Twinborn on: August 16, 2014, 04:16:28 PM
I wanted a clarification, because the table on page 104 allows Koloss-blooded with Allomancy/Feruchemy to become Twinborn:
(Humans or koloss-blooded with Allomancy or Feruchemy only)
Whereas page 107 lists it as human only. Does the game allow Koloss-blooded to become Twinborn?

I would say yes they can. I don't remember it ever being explicitly stated in the novels if Koloss-blooded can or cannot be Twinborn. While rare, Koloss-blooded can be Mistings or Ferrings, so I don't see why one of them couldn't have both abilities because the heritage is obviously there. You would be an exceedingly rare individual, possibly unique even, given the rarity of Allomancy or Feruchemy in Koloss-blooded. It does look like it could only happen during play though, and not at character creation. I may just be an accidental typo/omission.

That's just my 2 cents though, not sure of the official answer.

Tact-Tiles modular wet/dry erase gaming surface. Basically an alternative battle-mat for those that use them. They have an option for tiles with a printed grid and blank tiles.

@Shadelon, Sorry I know of none in landscape.

@Crafty_Pat, thanks appreciate the answer

I'm curious if anyone knows of a nice long list that could be used to create Studies for NPCs.  Sometimes, my imagination for coming up with stuff just starts to run dry…   Tongue

Also, another noob question for anyone: Never Outnumbered references the benefit on pg. 85, but I can't seem to find it?  What does Never Outnumbered do?  Guessing that flanking and the Horde B/M/S chain are nullified?

On page 85 under 'Benefit' there is: "When a feat ability requires a numerical advantage (e.g. “2-to-1”), you may only use it if together you, your teammates, and your allies physically outnumber your opponents by at least the listed ratio." So, Never Outnumbered negates the benefits keyed off of that, such as the Bushwhack and Horde feat chains.
11  Community / Off-Topic / Re: Do your game characters tend to be your gender or opposite gender? on: April 26, 2014, 02:52:13 PM
When playing tabletop I play my gender (male), almost exclusively. There have been a couple exceptions, such as when we where supplied with pre-generated characters for a one shot.

Playing video games I will almost always make male characters if I am given a choice. But, I don't really have an issue with playing a female character.

Inserting 'standard move' in lieu of 'movement action' would indeed allow you to Handle an Item and take your 5' step in the same round. It would also mean you could take that step when you:

  • Mount/Dismount
  • Reposition
  • Run
  • engage in Total Defence

Woops... forgot about that Run Tongue. I don't see it being much of an issue with regards to the other 3 though, so I think I would go with Slashes-With-Claws suggestion of 'Standard Move or Run'.
13  Products / Fantasy Craft / Re: Fantasy Craft Second Printing Q&A Thread on: March 21, 2014, 04:47:51 PM
I think it would be easier to just replace "Movement Action" with "Standard Move" in the section that talks about the "Bonus 5-ft. Step". That's basically how it works in The Other Game.

The voice at the very beginning is supposed to be Scarecrow I think. Then it transitions into Thomas Wayne's voice for the will reading.

Apparently this is to be the last Arkham game, at least as far as Rocksteady's involvement.

One thing to keep in mind as well is that Intelligence isn't really THAT important for mages in FC. The only thing it does for the class specifically is add to their spellcasting checks. You need Wisdom for more spells known and Charisma for spell save DC's though. The later might be as important if you are not focusing on attack/debuff spells.

Not sure if that helps but it is something to keep in mind coming from the other game.
