[5E OOC] The Further Adventures of James and Illeana

(1/118) > >>

Spells that create a barrier, such as Physical Barrier or [Element] Wall, create a barrier with a Structure equal to the Force of the spell, and an Armor equal to Force+hits. This is to prevent hilariously flimsy barriers and make these spells actually useful. A magical Barrier is still a Barrier, and is subject to the Penetration Weapons rule; only barriers of sufficiently high Armor will actually stop bullets.

Instead of Alchemy being opposed by Force of the preparation, it is opposed by Force - Alchemist's Skill. Therefore, an Alchemist with an Alchemy skill of 6 casting at Force 6 or lower would roll Magic + Alchemy [Force] unopposed, but if he were to overcast to Force 12, he would be opposed by 6 dice. This makes it easier to create preparations with decent Potency.

Preparations will no longer be nested rolls. The caster will declare the Force and soak drain appropriately when the preparation is created. When it is triggered, the caster will roll Magic + Alchemy (Force) to determine the spell result.

A preparation taking a single box of Physical damage will not make it lose its magic. This would render Disjoining obsolete, as you could disarm preparations without risking Drain just by smacking them. Instead, a sufficiently damaged preparation is immediately triggered.

Damage to a Preparation does not release the magic unless it is completely destroyed/ruined/scraped off the object. Alchemists shouldn't be at a constant risk of self destructing simply from putting their preparations in the same pocket as their car keys.

Flesh Form merges from Inhabitation have half their Force added to the Physical Attributes of the host.

When possessing a living vessel, the enhancement to Physical Attributes is limited by Augmented Maximum. This limitation does not apply to Inhabitation spirits.

Fake magical items made through Artificing stand up to Assensing in addition to Perception tests, using the same thresholds.

In Handling Environments, Catch Up/Break Away is a threshold test based on the complexity of the obstacles as normal. In Speed Environments, Catch Up/Break Away is instead an opposed Vehicle Test, pitting the speed of both drivers against each other.

When crashing, a vehicle is treated as if it rammed itself, resisting with Body+Armor as normal. Half of the unresisted damage is applied to the passengers of the vehicle, resisted with Body+Armor -6 AP. If a passenger is not properly secured (wearing a safety belt/harness), then they must resist the full initial damage of the crash instead, and may be hurled from the vehicle (gamemaster discretion). This may result in further damage from impact with the terrain or other vehicles.

So long as a Vehicle is moving, the driver defends against attacks with Reaction + Intuition. They can choose to use Full Defense, adding their Willpower for the remainder of the Combat Turn, and losing 10 initiative. They can also choose to use Evasive Driving, the equivalent of Gymnastics Dodge, and add their Pilot skill to the defense test. Doing this adds the Handling of the vehicle as a limit to the test.

A vehicle that is not moving does not get to defend against attacks.

The signature table is nonsense. The signature of a given target is dependent on the type of sensor attempting to perceive it; Cameras are subject to vision penalties, Thermographic sensors lock on with heat, MAD sensors lock onto ferrous metal, Radio Signal Sensors lock on to Matrix Icons, etc. etc.

The Sensor Housings table should instead read Sensor Array Housings table. Single Sensors do not have their Ratings limited by the size of the Housing.

Area of Effect attacks
Grenades and area spells can either be aimed at an area (Simple (3) test) or aimed at a specific target (attack roll vs. defense roll.) If you aim at the area, all the targets in the blast radius can (and probably will) use the Run for Your Life interrupt action to escape the blast. If you aim at a specific target, they cannot use this interrupt action; they get their defense roll instead.

The effectiveness of flash-bang grenades and Indirect Area spells (like Fireball) will decrease with range as per a normal grenade (-1 DV per meter). This is to avoid "can't miss" attacks due to the area of effect being larger than the possible distance of the scatter.

All technomancers have an innate ability to establish a Direct Connection to any device they touch. Technomancers can also form PANs.

Resonance abilities do not render properly in the Matrix and can often go undetected. If something does not qualify as an Attack or Sleaze action, the victim would have to make a Matrix Perception check to notice they were the target of something. This includes Resonance Spike. A persona forced to perform an action with Puppeteer is obviously aware it performed an action, but a Device that is Puppeteer'd does not notify its owner.

Base movement rates will generally be HALF of what's listed in the core rule book on p. 162.
Agility = meters per turn walking
Agility * 2 = meters per turn running
Hits on a sprinting test still add 1m/hit for Dwarves and Trolls and 2m/hit for other metatypes.

Physical Description: The man in the van looks just like your average sprawl-dweller. About 180 cm (5'11") tall, weighing appr. 80 kg (175 lbs), his light brown hair is fashionably short, and with his recent time in the woods, he's grown a full beard.  It looks surprisingly natural on him, but so do any number of his outfits and disguises.

==CFD Powers==
1) Attribute boost: Simple Action. Roll 6 dice. Each hit allows you to raise one Physical attribute by 1 point. The effect lasts for [Hits] Combat Turns. After than, you soak [Hits] drain. The soak test isn't in the rules but I don't see why this should be worse than what an adept goes through, so we'll say BOD+WIL to resist. That's 12 dice, which should result in mostly drain-free boosting. James' Agility is maxed out but he has some room for gains on his other physical attributes.
2) Toxin Resistance: James gets bonus dice to resist toxins, should he encounter them.
3) Adrenal Control: James can continue operating for a short while if his Stun or Physical condition monitors are filled.

Physical Description:Varies. By default, she is 1.75m and 55kg. Her long, dark hair pools on her shoulders, and frames her ballistic mask that has a Wiccan pentagram carved ornately on its face. She wears a lined coat over a black jumpsuit, boots, and gloves. She's completely covered, with no skin or other physical features visible.
Personality/background Helpful. As a follower of Hecate, Katsina must render aid to those who truly ask for it. She also tends to render aid to those that don't ask for it. This is balanced by her need for blood to survive, although she tends to downplay this as much as possible. She seems to regret what she is, rather than flaunting it like some vampires do.

I've spent the rest of Ace's Karma on upping Tracking from 1 to 2.  I also added some mods to the Ballistic Mask, and have corrected the nuyen total.

I'm still working on Illeana's sheet. It's getting close although she has a lot more spells coming. It's going to take me a while to update the table with all of them.

She will be calling James by his given name in private and will prefer to be called Illeana privately. Katsina and/or Mask will be her runner's aliases. "Kat" might be a pet name between her and James.

Given the fact that the two of them are living together, they will have a very good understanding of the other person's capabilities. James might not have memorized the full list of the spells she knows, but he'll have a good sense of what she can and can't do.

I really liked the original Sioux Nation location book and read it twice. I just finished both Cheyenne and Butte and thought they were busts. I actually liked Starving the Masses better, although that's an adventure that takes place in the Sioux Nation; it's not a location book.

I'm going to get the first IC post up this afternoon. There's not a 100% perfect way to kick this off, so we'll just kind of jam our way through the initial steps. A montage would be great but, frankly, is too much of a commitment to write all at once. I think we'll pick it up about 3 months down the line, then hopscotch our way forward a month or two at a time as necessary.
