2b) It's not RAW; however, you could allow people to buy Path Steps with interests if you wanted.
I wouldn't do that. I think Steps are powerful and limited on purpose, and with feats that give you +4 Interests at once, Origins that give you 2 or 3, etc., it could get seriously out of hand (casting level 8 spells 1/scene would be achievable at level 1, going from memory).

Hence my warning about making the Priest class diluted.  And calling out the setting implications.

1) When I get a stance from a feat, say Martial Spirit from the Sword basics feat, does it apply to any melee weapon I use (in this particular example) or does it only apply to swords?

2) I am planning to play with the Miracles quality. As far as I understand it, Steps on Paths count as Interests. Priests get them for free every x level. But does this mean that any character can take them as long as they pay for them with Interests?

3) Edge can only be gained via Luck feats?

4) When does Resolve come into play for non-casters? Is it just a downtime skill?

Don't have my books handy so take my answers with a grain of salt.

1) As long as the weapon meets the requirements (if any) of the stance, then it applies to any weapon.

2) Alignments count as interests.  Paths do not.  Thus, anyone can worship at the Children of the Dragon Temple but not anyone can be a Priest of that faith.  Blessed allows a non-priest to take the first step along a Path.

3) There are more character options for Edge in the Adventure Companion but I think that Luck feats are it for the core book.

4) Whenever the GM says it does.  You need to open that lock as the monster is stalking down the labyrinth corridor?  Probably a Resolve check to see if you keep your cool.  You just saw the opposing army summon a demon?  Maybe there too.  (Of course, deciding where to draw the fine line between Resolve and applying Stress damage is up to you and your group.)

2b) It's not RAW; however, you could allow people to buy Path Steps with interests if you wanted.  Just be aware that the Priest class will be diluted in your game.  Further, such a setup says to me that, in your setting, there are active deities who are constantly influencing events.

Nice.

Hard to tell given the fractions of a second the scenes are visible but the artwork looks to be a departure from GitS:SAC.  No sure what to say there.

Is the Major supposed to be younger in this one?  A prequel perhaps?

Sorry about editing out from under you my friendly arboreal marsupial; my phone just didn't show your post.

@ Doomed

Welcome to the forum. Perhaps one of the designers will swing by and explain their logic for acid damage.  Until then - hell, after that too - you're welcome to rule it as a save if you like.  We like to tinker here. If you want, head over to License to Improvise sub-forum, explain what you want acid to do and we can whip up something that might be more to your liking. We typically use the FC sub-forum for explanations of how/why the rules work as written but don't let that discourage you from asking for a tweak to make your experience with FC be the best it can be.

It looks... like an action movie with a medium-sized budget  Tongue I'm sure it's fine but it didn't get me very excited to see it at all  Smiley

It made me think of the first Die Hard movie crossed with Air Force One.

Not sold on it yet but will probably watch it on DVD.

Apparently, Antilles and I think alike.  Lars is itching to drop down the stairs screaming out challenges to the defenders and start smacking them with a club.
848  Products / Fantasy Craft / Re: Acid damage on: February 17, 2013, 03:06:14 PM
That's not how I read it: as far as I can tell you take full acid damage on the attack and then half the original damage each subsequent round until you read 0.

That's how we've been using it.  Also makes more sense from a chemical standpoint as the acid is neutralized as it burns through things.  (For most acids, anyways.)

Olympus has Fallen

Hadn't seen this one posted.  (It's YouTube, so may or may not be region locked.)

Hence, why I said that I would NOT be holding my breath. 

I'm an engineer and every so often someone has a great, but impractical, idea.  Trying to talk sense into either of those countries falls under the same category as the interns "sky crane."
851  Community / Off-Topic / Re: What should we do with North-Korea? on: February 16, 2013, 03:32:22 PM
North Korea exists because it serves as China's buffer between South Korea and the US.  If they could find a way to reform North Korea, save face and still have a buffer between them and the "evils" of capitalism then we might - MIGHT - see some progress.  I, for one, will not be holding my breath.
852  Community / Off-Topic / Re: What should we do with North-Korea? on: February 16, 2013, 11:00:52 AM
For the past 50 years (or more), some parts of the nation have been conditioned that the west is satan, they're after your god, kill them before they murder you.  Sorta hard to propaganda against that.  At some point, it may be needed to use the Stone Age tactic.  Literally removing a civilization from this era of technological advance by way of war.  ..I hope I'm wrong..

Huh?

North Korea?  I would think the above better fits with Iran.

I get out of the US about 2 to 3 times per year for work.  However, that is with a jam-packed schedule and almost no time off.  So, unless my trip was the same weekend as the con - at the con venue - it's unlikely I'll be able to enjoy the overseas cons.

As to GenCon ...
The wife wants to go to her first con and her parents live in Indy, so we're seriously thinking about making it a vacation spot this year.

True enough.  Back home now.

Any other cons you guys are hitting this year?
