      Upcoming Changes to the Fantasy Flight Games Forums   01/20/2017

      Hello Fantasy Flight Games forum community!   This week, we will be making some important changes to your Fantasy Flight Games community account and the way that you log into the Fantasy Flight Games community forums and web store.   We have been working hard to integrate with the rest of the Asmodee group, and we are happy to announce a unified way to access all the websites and apps made by Fantasy Flight Games, Days of Wonder, and Asmodee!   For most users, nothing will change: you will still log into the Fantasy Flight Games forums using your current login name and password. Only the login user interface will be new.   For a few users, your credentials might be slightly changed. For example, this could happen to users who have both a Fantasy Flight Games and Days of Wonder account, or in the case of conflicting login names across platforms. When these situations occur, special e-mails will be sent to those users with an easy explanation about those changes and what steps to take next. For any of you receiving those e-mails, please make sure to follow the instructions carefully.   Remember, official communications from Fantasy Flight Games or Asmodee.Net will never ask for your password.   What are the benefits for you as a player? Using a unified account to access all of our web services and apps makes your life simpler. Over time, you will see new features emerging, such as keeping all of your friends under a single account, finding friends easily in apps with online play, or developing your personal profile by adding to your board games collection. These are just some of the features that you will see during the next year, once this important technical step is complete.   Important note: The migration of the forums to our new system will take place on Tuesday, January 24th. The forums will be offline for about two hours during that time. Once the migration is complete, older forum posts may look strange for up to 24 hours as we rebuild them in our new system.   We can’t wait to connect our board game communities and build bridges between universes, game systems, players, events, groups, game clubs, and more! This is only the first step in bringing people and games closer together. For more information, read our FAQ at https://asmodee.helpshift.com/a/asmodee-net/.   Best regards,   The Fantasy Flight Games Team

Slinnar Drift: Effects?

9 posts in this topic

Deathwatch makes this reference to the Slinnar Drift on 351 pg.

 

"The Slinnar Drift is also remarkable for the curious stability of local Warp-space conditions in the region

 

In The Outer Reaches 54 pg. there is a section called The Silent Road.

 

I am trying to come up with an environmental modifier to Psykers to reflect all the canon about the Drift and would like some advice.

 

The Devourer causes a -10 to Psyker Tests because of its interference, do, I imagine to the massive Telepathic load of Trillions of organisms.

 

But what hazard should there be for a becalmed Warp?

Personally, I'd go for a -10 or even -20 if you're feeling particularly nasty, but remove any chances of spectacular miscasting due to the denizens of the warp not being active in the area. My reading of it anyway, since the "emotional flow" is calmed, so Deamons wouldn't be drawn to the area.

Interesting, make it harder to tap but less chance of catastrophe.

 

Just springing off your idea, how about -10 for Unfettered , -20 for Push and

Any rolls of Psychc  Phenomena or Perils of the Warp roll 1 - 50 not 1 - 100 ?

 

Maybe +10 to Psynscience, where Chart starts 1 lv higher, ie Standard success

equals results for 1 DoS.?  What do you think?

 

Augury: There is no Test for Augury, should it be affected?

Sounds good to me. With regards to Augury, just make it less effective. Tell the Librarian that he struggles to understand the tiny whispers of the Warp or some such. If he persists, give him a level of fatigue to represent the difficulty. I used this in a mission fighting around Necron Pylons similar to those on Cadia. My Librarian player was becoming obsessed with augury, I threw in the pylons to make the rest of the team think on their feet more.

Just purchased it, PDF.  Excellent resource, thanks WilliamAsher.

 

Stars of Inequity, Chapter 1, System Creation, System Feature, Warp Stasis 12 pg.

"In systems that are fully becalmed, apply one or more of the following.

 - Focus Power and Psyinscience Tests are -10

 - Psychic Powers are not allowed to be Pushed

 - When rolling Psychic Phem roll twice taking the lower effect

 

That is on top of the following

Astropaths take a -3 PR for purposes of sending messages.

 

All of which are great ideas.

 

Thanks again for the resource.

 

Interesting, nothing about the Tarot.

Well, if it is -3 to transmit, it might be -3 PR to receive, too. As that isn't as likely an issue (most Astropaths just seem to "DING! You've got mail." to me, rather than actively need to check and receive, whether to get the message, or just bounce it along, restrengthened), you might house-rule that they get the -3 PR for the Tarot, as "receiving" is also hampered.
