  1. Hey all! Tony and Chris here to let you know we just dropped Episode 18 - Teaching Old Skills New Tricks where we talk about using skills in new ways and how to uncouple skills for their linked characteristic. We give away 50 more Pieces of Awesome and we put that uncoupling to the test in Advantageous Threats for ya! So, take a listen and come find the narrative with us! Thanks for listening!

  2. You're very welcome for the podcast! Tony and I are really enjoying it. Fantasy Grounds is an installed application you need to download and could take some port forwarding configuration on the GMs PC/network to host a game. Roll 20 is an online based / in your web browser application that has it's own issues to get everyone online together. So, that's just a "what and what" there. Fanatasy Grounds does not have voice chat built in, but using Discord or Skype is very easy and free. Roll 20 does have voice chat ... video too I think ... but it's a pain to get everyone to hear everyone as well. 😃 Learning curve. Hmmm. Both are intuitive in their own ways, but once you've worked through it and played a couple sessions then people get the hang of it. We don't have an open spot in our games right now, but I think FG Con is just around the corner (Oct 12th - Oct 14th) for you to check out. Thanks again for listening! Z

    So Android ??

    Tony (Azzmodeus) and I talked about the character sheets and adventure from GenCon they ran in Episode 14 - Hacking 101 of Finding The Narrative. They added a few new skills including a "Defensive Hacking" skill called Computers (Sysops) and "Offensive Hacking" skill called Computers (Hacking), for instance. They added something called Favors as well. They had a Clone, Cyborg, G-Mod (Genetically Enhanced Human?), Loonie, and Natural (basic human) for archtypes. They had a Bounty Hunter, Investigator, Tech, Con Artist, Roughneck, and Academic for Careers. So yeah, check out the episode starting at about 48:00 (48 minutes in) in our Setting the Tone section of the podcast, if you don't want to listen to the entire episode. Enjoy! Chris

    Upgrade dice pool

    Only thing you have to keep in mind is the Story Points spent by the GM and/or Players do not go into the other Story Point pool until AFTER the roll has been narrated. So, if you don't have one before you start building your pool, even if the GM spends one ... you won't be able to use it until your next roll/check. It's a very subtle "step", but it is there. Z
  6. Hahaha! Well, hope this was the only one you missed. =) Enjoy! Z
  7. You are very welcome. Like I said, I'm a sucker for this stuff and your setting really called to me. Yes, it will be something I will run someday. So many settings ... so little time! I look forward to your next iteration of it or your next setting, bud! Enjoy spending those 50 pieces of awesome! LOL! Take care, Chris

    Magic House Rule Critique

    Klort, I like that talent too. What an interesting choice it will put into the player's hands ... might be easier, but SO much more can go wrong. LOL! 😃 Tier 2 feels right, but I could see it as Tier 3 as well ... where your real "rules breaking" talents start to be seen.

    New Stuff?

    Well, if we look at what happened last year ... playtest at GenCon in a Terrinoth setting then an announcement on the setting book in Nov. We can assume the same this year with the Android playtest for Genesys at GenCon. And with the Magnum Opus announcement about Android:Netrunner coming to a close in Nov, I'm expecting an announcement for the Android setting around that time as well. Let's hope they release the Android playtest adventure for free like they did as well. 😃

    Magic attack - Lightning effect

    1. I feel like the Stun quality is like the Blast quality in that you only activate the property once, no matter how many advantages you get. Now, this is different than the Linked quality where you can "activate" it multiple times up to the value of Linked. I would think it would say it in the description if it can be activated multiple times and the activate once is the default, general rule on item qualities. 2. As 2P51 said, I believe you need to activate the special qualities of the attack separately on each attack. If there isn't something in the rules specific to a situation, item quality, or what have you ... I normally think of the general rule in a particular case. And like I said for the Stun quality, the general rule is you activate a weapon quality once and the specific rule should be called out for it if you can multiple times. Good questions! Z

    Anyone play Android at Gencon?

    Awesome sauce! Glad you're loving the podcast. We're having a lot of fun making it as you can tell. Yeah, come find us at Con on the Cob. If you haven't been before, Tony and I will be hanging around the Nerds-International area near the pool. Our group will have about 3 tables for gaming and a big banner! 😃 Look for a big fat grognard (me) drinking angry balls and a bald albino grognard (Tony) drinking a beer. Z

    Anyone play Android at Gencon?

    In our latest episode of Finding the Narrative, Episode 14 - Hacking 101 , we go over the Android character sheets. Pretty good stuff! The Net, Science, and Society are new knowledge skills. They split up Computers in the Comp (Hacking) and Comp (Sysops) for kind of an offensive and defensive computers check. Ummm, new species and careers. Plus a new mechanic called "Favors" ... those that are given to your character and those that your character owes. I don't have the character sheets, but I think they were linked on the Genesys Facebook page. Z
