A belated second report.

Five fights against standards, still no real manipulation of the initiative, but the fights only lasted one and a half to maybe two rounds. I expect things to see use come next game and the big fight of the dungeon.

I will say that if you're using Ebb and Flow, you really should oll NPC Initiative individually. This has always been my preference for a number of reasons, but if you're using this it's important for both the +/-2 but for the other abilities to no have all the NPCs bunched up in one big block.

EDIT: Also, I keep thinking something that keys off of attack or damage to trigger an ebb or surge. Maybe a trick, certainly an NPC quality.

The Anatomy of Melancholy: The Best of A Softer World

To mark the death of the comic, they're releasing a "Best-of" hard cover

Well, most of the rest of the world does the remembering our dead thing in November. We had a holiday for rembering our dead before that became a thing, though.

The day has always been marked with picnics, barbeque, and parades. That also means music and booze. Retail has a sale every three day weekend.

The 'secularization' of Memorial Day was probably complete within forty years of its establishment, and certainly by the time WWI came around.

Thanks, Mister Andersen.

Turns out I had mashed some rules up - the construct NPC quality did worry about excess AP beyond that requited to punch thru armour.

It is time to switch Memorial Day and Veterans Day.  November is a shitty month for partying, and trying to get folks to be somber when they're marking the opening of summer is a dickish way to make everyone unhappy.

I don't get bent out of shape when folks wish me a happy Memorial Day.  For most folks it really is a happy weekend.  I don't begrudge them that, and I don't want to take away anyone's fireworks shows even if they still make me twitch.  (I take my less than happy ass inside and turn up the music.  Fireworks -ing rock even if I can't enjoy them.)  I sure as hell don't want a war big enough that everyone loses someone.  When you remember me on Memorial Day, do it with a drink in one hand and something tasty in the other.


I should get down to Arlington more.

"excess" AP doesn't do anything. The AP rating is just the maximum amount of DR that the attack ignores

  Mine is a military family. While we travel and meet up and eat well... its a pretty somber holiday.

  I'd say it's less that people auto-party on any day off and more we have desperately isolated out military culture & traditions from our general populace.

How does "excess" AP interact with a standard NPC's damage save?  Or have I conflated rules in my head due to the multiple years since I last played SC?

Eg J. Random Mook is rocking a flack jacket (DR 1/4, iirc - exact numbers aren't important) and he has the bad luck to stop a round with AP (6), which hits his armour.

Off the bat, JRM's flak jacket does sod all for him against this attack (ordinarily giving DR 4 against life's little miseries that move very fast, but reduced to zero by the attack's AP) - but there's 2 excess AP here, which is what I'm asking about.

How is JRM's damage save modified?  By nothing, or by something (-2?) for the excess AP?

If I haven't just mashed rules together, is there a page reference I can look up?

Its more venting rage fueled by grief the author is still processing.

Memorial Day is what it is. Its the nature of holidays.

Well said.  A good reminder to us all.
