Terminator Armor and Precognitive Dodge

31 posts in this topic

I say No, you can't dodge in TDA. Calgor Grim have already explained why.

Being unable to dodge is a serious disadvantage, but it's TDA after all. But we did invent over solution, we just allowed terminators to use two fields at once. First you test your normal field, like convertion field, and if it fails, then you cant test the armors inbuilt "field". Cause the description there says its not a field, but just REALLY STRONG armour plating. Cheesy, but not really overpowering.

 

They don't stack. They're both fields (the TDA one counts as a field, though technically isn't one). Fields don't overlap. It's right there in the rules.

He knows.

You even included the part where he indicated knowledge of this.

you batter a bolt shell/solid projectile/grenade out of the air with your basically indestructible force weapon.

warptime

Heh. I used to play a heavily house ruled game, that actually allowed Warptimed Characters to parry some ranged attacks with a strong enough weapons. So you might as well use it, if you want. (BTW, the two fields rule was here too.)

With other things, like granting PR reactions, this made psykers OVEROVERPOWERING. Oddly enough, no player have ever used a warp time during that time, and the game quietly ended.

And yeah, I know. But I just prefer to ignore or change some rules that I don't like. There was another issue with that rule, with covering entire body with six Salvation Shields. Sort of fun it was.

Psykers kinda are very OP, at least at high Psy Ratings. They will fight better than everyone else, they will probably know alot more than most everyone else, they will succeed better at most skills than everyone else and to boot they can just turn anything into a pile of goo with a wave of their hands.

 

Precognitive Dodge

Precognitive Strike

Glimpse

Warptime

Abhorrent Ward(if Unaligned) - not really needed, but very OP

Blade of Baleful Might

= One beastly one man army

Ah yes, it was the Exalted big brother I was thinking off... The lower one is just meh.

 

Add in Side Step, Lightning Attack and Blademaster and the psyker in question is almost immortal, bar a Vindicare Assassin or Culexus Assassin, or some other very skilled Null that can Dodge bolt shells.
