Lars joins Aiden in his movement.  He adopts a posture not unlike how he holds himself as a priest.

I would.  Imagine how well it would silence the detractors.

"This weapon simply cannot be accidentally discharged by my children."
"This weapon can not be stolen and used against my family, or any one else."

Forget military deployments in harsh terrain - put that shit into homes and watch the firearm accident and theft rates plummet.  It also stops people buying guns legitimately and having them (airquotes) "stolen" by criminal elements - it's still locked to the original purchaser, and unit alteration calls the cops to your location.  Making owning a non-bio-locked gun a federal crime and then gun crime as a whole plummets, and hardline anti-gun types suddenly have nothing to rant about and use for their strawman arguments.  They gotta find a new boogeyman (probably the vidya games, sigh...).

Meh, never been an issue at my table.  I just let people take the -4 penalty and convert whatever they had for damage (lethal, subdual, etc.) into FORCE damage.  If they whine, I remind them, that they are attacking with the force of their mind/soul/spirit/ki/chi/whatever is appropriate for the setting.

Lars looks over his bowl of stew at Aiden.  "Sounds fine.  Though we should all show some gratitude to He who has granted us strength enough to strike back at those who held us here."  He then returns to eating.

Lars is eating some stew as well.  He nods as needed during Aiden's description.

"I'm looking forward to decorating the Mitran chapel with the warden's entrails if time permits.  Anyone want to join me?"

Much faster to implant a hard-coded key in the palm of your hand.  The gun won't fire when the trigger is pulled unless the correct code is basically touching the gun.

At least from a cyberpunk perspective it works.   Grin

Zero Charisma looks like it bring back unhappy memories for some.

I think I know that guy.  Not the actor, the character.

Byzantium: Neil Jordan, Gemma Arterton, Jonny Lee Miller, the unbelievably talented Saoirse Ronan, and this trailer? Yeah, I'm in.

Interesting ...

Will continue to look for this one.

Not bad.  Perhaps there is still hope.

Page 186 Prizes
Prizes include Contacts, Favors, Holdings, and Magic Items

I'm probably being a little pedantic here, but, would a Dagger +1 count as being a prize, or what about a hat that enabled you to always know which direction north was?

Perhaps a little ...

By RAW, yes to both.  However, it depends entirely on your setting.  If minor magic such as Orient Self (knowing which way is north) is commonplace, then I don't see why the hat would need to be a Prize.  Further, if your world has multiple races who do exquisite crafting, the dagger could be mundane.

However, if you subscribe to a minimal magic world (my personal choice) then they would both be Prizes.

An excellent question....

My current OOC understanding is that our friendly, deadly plant has dispatched the guard commander and the rest of us are making our way toward his office.  Is that correct?

Page 173 to 174 Fitted Armour
If two or three fittings are applied, the armour gains the light fittings modification. Four or five fittings apply the heavy fittings modification

How do you get the light or heavy fittings modifiers? Do you just say your armour has (for example) greaves, a coif, and knee guards (3 fittings), and then pay for light fittings three times?

Or do you just choose the Light (or Heavy) fittings option, pay the price once, then update your armour?


At my table, I would charge you once for Light fittings and update your Defense and Defense Penalty (if applicable).  I'd let you specify that the light fittings were greaves, a coif and knee guards.

Lars smiles at Drin.  "I'm more than happy to knife him.  I'd love the chance to decorate with his remains as well."  He pauses for a moment.  "I don't believe I've heard if there is any extra armor at this point.  Are you aware of less than completely blood-stained extras?"

I tinkered with nciku.com and a Chinese dictionary for a few minutes but found zip.  Good luck.

Lars drops to one knee and begins a prayer asking Asmodeus to grant Janus the strength she needs to perform her task.  After he completes it, he asks, "Any leftover uniforms?"
