  1. Or to be more precise, Techniques say that these "New Opportunities" and so these wold ';add' 'to the table to the skill or ring in which they come from, allowing, again, the expenditure of opportunities from one ring to another at double the cost.
  2. Thanks, that's what I was thinking. But I wanted to make sure. And I missed that water/fire bit. Gotchya.
  3. OMG, I just realized. Hotaru/Hotori = Starbuck.
  4. Surprised no one has said: Last Samurai (maybe not Tom Cruises character, but the rest) 47 Ronin (again, not necessarily Keanau but the rest of the cast)
  5. Can multiple Kata's be used in the same action? I figure that most that have activation based on making an Attack, that they cannot, because there are some very specific things that those require: Martial Art [Melee] or Fitness (Void) or what not. But there are others, such as the Striking as [Element] kata that their activation is "spend opportunity and get X" They do not require a roll in and of themselves, but are more like "hey, you have this kata so these are other uses for opps you can do" For instance, could a bushi use Iaijutsu: Rising Cut, could he also use Striking as Fire as well? And if you had the opps left, could you use Striking as Water as well? I guess one could argue that, with the Strikign as [Element] Kata, and other kata that are 'based' on one of the elements, you would have to be in the stance that coresponds, but thematically, mixing and matching what one learns in a marital art, is how you make that art your own.
  6. First, I want to say that I just got the Beta today, only just learned about it. I have breezed over it, kinda like what I am seeing. It still kinda has earlier edition feel with the new dice, at least to me. I have been trying to figure out the format for the task checks in the sample adventure as opposed to that given in the rest of the book. The rest of the book gives you something like: TN 2 Aesthetics (Water) check Where A Ronin's Path is often something like: TN 2 Aesthetics (Water 1, Fire 3) check I think I am missing something. What do the numbers after a ring represent? Are they the minimum ring you must have to attempt it or something?
  7. Several abilities or attacks allow you to substitute your Weapon or Ballistic Skill Bonus for degrees of success on an attack, or instance, the Warrior's Expert at Violence or when a target is helpless. Do you use the modified BS or WS for the degrees, or just your base. That is, if I made an attack that was at +30 to my BS of 40, would the degrees of success be 7 or would it be 4?
  8. The Enclosed vehicle trait says crew and passengers cannot be specifically targeted by those outside the vehicle unless there is a particularly good reason. Eye of Vengeance allows a character to add his degrees of success to the penetration for a hit. Armor for a vehicle acts as normal armor, there is no 'scaling' so, would you all allow someone to shoot someone inside an Enclosed vehicle using Eye of Vengeance, rather than having to damage the vehicle and hope that they can deal enough damage to allow them to damage crew?
  9. Well, I have been delving though all the books, it just doesnt seem to exist. I dunno about using Darkholder, as that is more like "i was born on a black market/criminal organization/off the books deep in the dark of the Void" origin. But I guess any origin could work, or even Mind Wiped, since I read somewhere that if they are turned into a sanctioned Psycher of any kind, their experiences on the Black Ships are wiped (well it said only thier bad memories, but, I dobt they have any GOOD ones). Maybe Voidborn, but with something about dealing with distractiosn? Due to the fact that they have to deal with the contant mental numbing anti-psyker white noise and the actual cacphony of noise that is projected into the holds.
  10. Hello everyone, I was wondering if anyone knew if theere was/is a "born on a black ship" home world written up in any of the DH books. I know you could use Voidborn, but I was wondering if anyone recalled a specialized one.
  11. Do remember though, there are different Resistances based on the content of Iron specifically. Something containing a little iron has a lower check than a toally iron object. So Steel, Titanium Steel, and alloys of Iron and other metals and materials, even white and black steel, would offer the lower check,, where as the brittle breakable iron sword or iron fence post you rip off out of the ground and smack the darkling aroudn with, woudl offer the higher
  12. Also, are creature powers implemented? You have essential abilities, but i coldn't find anything for creature powers. I might have missed them as I was playing with it while very tired! Also, wondering how easy or hard would it be to implement the Core Exxet natural bonus and natueral abilities. Just curious, as in the end, one has to copy the info on the generator to a sheet anyway, and we can implement those changes at that time.
  13. May I suggest a method to go backwards? If someone forogt something in a previous step, it appears, at the moment, you have to start all over.
  14. There is the Runes, which you 'throw' to get a certain effect for a week. They provide 10 effects, 5 of which are benifical and 5 that are not. On a side note, i would suggest that rather than the normal deck, since it seems a rather improtant factor of the Anima univers, I would go Tarot Deck of Many Things, just as a suggestion .
  15. Plus any DP they might have from high Gnosis. Keep in mind too though, anything that you as the GM make as a 'creature in existance' Characteristics you want, but if the creature is created though magic, the creator needs to pay DP to give them Characterisics.
  16. The steps to using a power are as follows: 1) Decide which power (or powers) you are going to use: Let us assume your just going to use only one, and it is Psychiokinetic Impact. 2) Divide up your Psychic Potential between the powers you are goin to use: Lets say you have a 40, and since we are only using Psychokinetic Impact it all goes to it. 3) Make a Psychic Potential roll for each power used: Since you are using one, you make one roll, and add 40 to it. Lets just say you roll an 80, and so you get a Final Result of 120, which is Difficult. That means the Impact Strength is 10. 4) Next, target an opponent and roll Psychic Projection: Wether you make one or 20 Psychic Projection checks, you never suffer a penalty to it, like Magic Projection, at least from mutiple uses of it at least. 5) Determine the effect: In order to affect a target, you must get a 10% or greater damage. Should you do so, you go on to the effect. In this case, an Impact of 10. Impacts are better detailed in Dominus Exxet, but in general, they casue a person to get knocked back. Make an opposed characteristic check agasint the targer, using your Impact Strength of 10 against their Stength. If they fail the check, they get knocked back a distance based on their margin of failure. Additionally, they woudl take 30 damage, and anything that the GM might think fits (say if they get knocked off a ledge and fall, or are slammed into a wall of spikes). Basically, Psychic Potential determines the level of the power, and Psychic Projection determines how well it targets others. The Dark Paladin is the kinda guy who doesn't summon, but when he crossed paths with a supernatural entity, he seizes control of it, and uses it to his advantage. In order to choose elementalism, you do so at the beginign, when making your character. You gain the bonuses to the element you choose, and suffers the penalty against all other elements, and a larger one agasint its opposing element. Aire, Earth, Fire and Water are the usual elements, but Light and Darkness are Elements as well. If a creature is of an elemental nature, its Category will say Elemental, and somewhere in its stats or description it will state what kind of elemental. Hope this all help!
  17. Actually, if you look at the requirements, they are vastly different. Several of the martial arts have new requirements at the level that they should be equivelent to the ones in the book. The costs are the same to get to that level, but the requirements are not. For example, Akido in the core book has Sleight of Hand 40 reqirement (as does the Core Exxet btw). Aikido Advanded degress, that is the equivelent of the Marital Art withing the core book, has the follwoign requirements: Sleight of Hand 40, Attack Ability (unarmed) 100, and Defense Abiltiy (unarmed) 120. That is a drastic difference between the two, and many of the martial arts have those different issues. Now not withstanding that some of those changes make some sense (your not going to Trap or Knockdown with a low Attack, and your not going to gain the counter attack with a low defense), the differences are well, notcably different.
  18. Sorry about that, i have been sorta away for a bit, and havn't been working on the project for a while. Your sheet woreks wonderfully,and i have adapted it, thank you very much, and when I finsihe it and post it, I will make sure to note your assistance in it, give credit where it is due! Again thanks for the info!
  19. Well, I am using Excel 2000, so the Open Office you have is likly far newer than mine!
  20. Hello there, I am gearing up for a game, and I designed a combat sheet a while back, but i am trying to stream line it. On the sheet, I have a method to have the computer do the roll for you, incase as a GM you do not want to roll for every NPC you are running. I had the cell referenct another cell that was to total of a number of other cells, that referenced others, in order to allow for Open Roll (in essence, tghe first cell was a random number from 1-100, and the next cell had a if statement that said, basically, If the previous cell is 90+ then roll, the next cell 91+ etcetra. What I am trying to do is to try to put all this into one argument. Does anyone know if that is possible? Also, I would like to try to ahve it deal with fumbles as well, but right now I just need the basic open roll, i can figure out how to do various other things if I can get this one to work! Thanks in advance if you can help.
  21. I was wondering how to work the Elemental Mastery of some of the creatures in Those Who Walkes Among Us with the new spell format of Arcana Exxet. In essence, these powers give added effects to any spell of a specific element that the creature casts, but with the new format of spells, there is no added effect, there is just the grade the spell is cast. One or two added effects would likly mean little for the grades, though three may become a free grade increase. Anyone have any suggestions??
  22. Does anyone know what the crosses next to various cities and towns on the maps in Gaia Vol 1 are?
