Thanks – I’d skipped from 1st edition to 5th, so missed a ‘few’ things along the way.
Are there descriptions of the Jackpointers at all? Have an opportunity in my game to terrify people by giving Kane a cameo, and I realized that I don’t know a thing about him physically (race, ‘ware, preferred weapons, whether he looks like a total badass or more mild mannered at first … )
4e, iirc, used the lower of the two base dice pools.My bad. Then I would use that. Yes, you can do sword in one hand and a pistol in the other. Rule of Cool and all. But don't expect it to be nearly as effective as just using one or the other.
I've heard that it was conceived as an excuse to justify why everything, especially augmentations, is more expensive now. Seems like a lot of work for something that could be explained by inflation.Inflation works as an excuse when it is a small change. Wired Reflexes, for example, went from 11k/32k/100kk to 39k/149k/217k between 4th and 5th. Which means that if this was due to 'inflation', that would be inflation of 200-400% in the course of a year or two (from beginning of Dragon Civil War to the new edition coming out). That is the kind of thing you see in global economic meltdowns, like the Great Depression.
