  Returning After 5 Games Away
Posted by: Bushioka - 09-11-2017, 08:16 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)

So this feels kind of awkward, but I played in the veeeery first event as Dr. Moshe Weiss with RAID.  If you were around RAID during that event in the distant past you may recall a xenobiologist who sounded a little like Dr. Zoidberg.  That was me.  Now 2 years of grad school and a stint working in Japan later, I'm eyeing a March return to Oregon and am jazzed about possibly playing in Spite in April of next year.  However I'm concerned that things may have moved on so much that I have no idea what the heck is going on.. granted, I'm definitely bringing a new character anyhow so it's basically like being a new player all over again.

Any tips or advice for someone in my situation?  I think a more combat-oriented role would suit me better than spending my time science-ing, and I nearly made it to Game 2 or 3 (I forget which now) as a Russian sergeant who was going to perform in the USO show.  I've also got a possible set of gear for a military-ish character in that I've found a seller in Japan that offers Japan Self-Defense Force patterned gear.  Granted I'm not about to look Japanese, and I don't mean to offer offense.. is a Russian-descended trooper whose parents were stuck in whatever's left of Japan after Storm Day plausible?  Or at least something similar?

Or.. dun-dun-dunn... are there any groups more in need of a new (but not totally new) player?

  Smoker at Site
Posted by: Sean Graczyk - 08-23-2017, 11:47 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (2)

Our team is looking at bringing an electric smoker to game.
Tipping over is not an issue unless someone is messing with it.
Is there any issue with this?

  Interaction of Armor w/ Condemn effect
Posted by: Sam Askey - 08-21-2017, 04:00 PM - Forum: Rules Questions - Replies (3)

Just a question about calculating damage when hit with a Condemn effect while wearing Armor. Do you double the damage (condemn effect) first then subtract 1 due to the armor (In which case bullets deal 7 damage and Drom claws deal 5) or do you subtract 1 then double (in which case bullets deal 6 damage and Drom claws deal 4)?

  Plate Carrier as armor without inserts
Posted by: Rick Raddue - 08-07-2017, 09:23 AM - Forum: Rules Questions - Replies (2)

Greetings!

For the armor rules to count, the rule book states that armor must "appear functional".  Most of my team is coming in with plate carriers, which look like this.

In the real world, those vest by themselves offer absolutely no protection until you slide armor plates (thus the term "plate carrier") into internal pockets.  The only outward way to tell if someone has said plates installed is that the gear will look a little more bulky.  A couple of us have made fake plates out of EVA foam but if someone decides to not use plates in the carrier, will the vest count as armor per the rules?

Thank you.

  Price updates for game 6
Posted by: Jimmy Hastings - 08-01-2017, 04:19 PM - Forum: General Announcements - Replies (1)

Hi all,

We tweaked the algorithm a bit that determines how the price of items when buying them at game on.  We don't make that algorithm public, but there's one consequence that will be immediately apparent to most people buying things: It is now possible to get a discount if your faction makes their associated quotas.  The longer you can consistently make your numbers, the better the discount, as your faction is able to more efficiently route the associated goods.  This is cumulative with the merchant 40% discount, so if a normal person in your faction gets a 10% discount on some type of item, a merchant would get a (60% * 90% = 54%) 46% discount.

This still does not affect starting characters, as this expenditure is supposed to represent your starting gear, which doesn't fluctuate with the local economy.

Let us know if you have any questions,
Jimmy Hastings
Chief Economist

  Cyborg Power Core question
Posted by: Ben Thayer - 07-31-2017, 05:35 PM - Forum: Rules Questions - Replies (2)

pg. 37 SCB.  Power Core: Power cores are large batteries that are wired into the cyborg, improving their performance, adding additional power sources, and providing basic radio use.

Is this a holdover from an earlier edition, or does power core really give you a radio that cannot be stolen?

  Suggestion: Merchant
Posted by: Ian Paterson - 07-26-2017, 01:25 PM - Forum: Rules Discussion - Replies (1)

Not sure if this is in the right place on the forums, but I was thinking it would be cool to have Merchant (at some rank) get an Intuition-like ability about supply drops during game.
