  1. I think you will like the new engine. It’s smoother imho and allows you to focus on more story.
  2. Tell me Rokugan doesn’t scream Westeros? I could so see these rules modified to fit a Game of Thrones setting.

    The Dice Pool Podcast - Night's Edge Setting

    Thanks @kkuja. We are definitely going to provide Night's Edge as a setting but there are a lot of moving parts to that equation. It will happen, and we want it to happen, its just that we all have very busy schedules.
  7. Yes they could. However are you taking Spell Skills or Spell Actions? I think the later would go well and clean up some of the holes this system has.
  8. These are all very good points in fact. As for playtesting the Magic Rules: GM Chris was involved in the playtesting of the product and has run many games of Harry Potter during Gamer Nation Con as well as playtesting the game and System he wrote. GM Hooly (me) has used the Magic system several times and I’m pretty experienced generally with understanding game balance and design. GM Flano is our Magic expert having designed the Magic system for Nights Edge. GM Huzz has a lot of game design experience but has limited exposure to Magic. GM Kat has the least amount of experience with Magic in GeneSys.
  9. We will include this in one of the next episodes as you taker a good point.
  10. It is now. Thanks for the gentle nudge
  11. One thing to note though as we did say, by RAW, you can heal yourself, but playtesting says that you can just go from scene to scene having everyone in the party fully heal. As a player, it’s great. As a GM. Not so much.
  12. Hey All, Glad you are enjoying what we have suggested thus far. And if you have any gripes, let us know. And here’s why. One of the things that we are definitely going to do at the start of the next episode, is that we are going to examine any feedback that we have from Part I and address any questions that came from the last episode. So make your points.
  13. It was some random pesky character in the RSS iTunes didn't like. Its fixed. So very sorry.
