    Icebreaker Limits Confusion

    On the most recent episode of the Dicepool Podcast, Sam Gregor-Stewart explained that the limits on the devices should have been “installed” rather than “active”. As you point out, you can only have one breaker active at a time (important to note that limitation does not apply to ice). So your interpretation is correct.

    Perception Checks and Ambushes

    If I understand this correctly then you initiative would break down into blocks of: (All PCs who succeed), (All NPCs), (All PC’s who failed). Though, as normal, any PC could use a PC initiative slot.

    The Nimble talent clarification

    Using this ability, you can move once as an incidental. The incidental doesn’t count against your limit of two maneuvers, but the talent explicitly limits you to two Moves (one Incidental, one Manuever. Therefore on a turn you may: Move (incidental), Move (maneuver), Any Manuever but Move (2 strain) , Action.

    Looking for a new genesys Facebook group.

    I joined that group just in time to witness that dumpster fire. Thanks for the link to the new group.

    A Melting Plot!!!

    Just discovered your cast and have been binging season 1. Love the concept of using familiar characters — as a listener I can immediately understand a player’s choices because I already have som understanding of the character. And I imagine it helps the players because they have a a strong archetype to play to rather than inventing a character. Keep upbthe the great work!

    Thoughts about the gameplay videos?

    Ah! Ok. I get that. The “draw to you hand size” reminds me of any number of board/card games (especially the draw at the end of your turn, which seems like a hallmark of Knizia) but I immediately thought of Star Wars LCG (R.I.P).

    What makes you think of Star Realms?

    Late April Fool's Joke?

    I could see collecting one of each combination of faction — that’s only 35 decks. I could even see some trading away duplicate combos to achieve it. Or just every combination which includes a favorite faction.

    Late April Fool's Joke?

    Try telling that to coin collectors, stamp collectors or rock collectors. There many things you can’t collect “all” of. I think rather that the point would be to collect a representative diversity.

    New Preview for Terrinoth

    My guess is that “Activation” in this instance refers to using the shard itself as a weapon. Infusing it into another weapon would give that weapon a new quality, not detailed here.

    The Bright Flame of the World's Glory

    I am curious as to how the various candidates for Emerald Champion are selected. My first guess would’ve been that each Clan Champion selects a candidate — that appeared to be the case for Scorpion. But, Toturi appears to have been put forward by a coalition of prominent Lion leaders with ulterior motives. It would seem that each Clan has its own custom. In fact it is not clear to me whether each Clan must put forward a candidate or is in fact limited to just one. As far as the Grey Crane apparently not being the Crane candidate, I would assume that there is some element of practicality to each Clan’s selection process. Toshimoko does not strike me as temperamentally suited to the role and doubtless Hotaru (and leading Cranes) would not choose him for those reasons.
  14. I half wish they’d stop writing fiction that makes Unicorn so damned awesome. Makes me sad I’m not playing them. But then I try, lose and go back to Mountain’s Anvil Castle.

    Into the Forbidden City Fiction

    I love the Altansarnai we see in the fictions. I wish she and her Unicorn were as awesome in the game.
