Re: PBF #60 : The Illusion of Control
I don't think I can reliably join a game yet, but I'll try to keep an eye on this thread in case there are any questions or problems.

Re: PBF #60 : The Illusion of Control
Thomas-

Question about an advantage:

• Wayfarer - You may move one additional space during your Movement Step as long as you rolled at
least one movement die.

Does this allow you to move into any terrain type or just one that was rolled? Can the extra space be at any point during your movement?

I feel like I asked this once before...

I believe you did. It's a rewording of one of the heroes from IoD, and we've always played it as: you can move into any terrain with the ability and it can be any time during movement.

I'd be interested. It'd be my first PBF, but I've been following along on some of the others and getting the feel for it.

Now that things have slowed down here, I think I should be able to play some games again. Count me in.

Have you played Runebound before?

The CYO Hero portion of the game doesn't change anything about the rules, just adds a little fun to the setup.

The Cities of Adventure portion does add some strangeness that can be difficult to deal with if you are new to the game itself.

Either way, you are welcome to play. I just want to make sure you are aware of what you are getting in to.

As long as SJ confirms that he is in, we are set to go.

40 point character builds.

The character generation rules are linked in the OP. Start setting up your character and post it here when you are ready, so we can verify that the rules have been met.

I had a character all planned, but now I have forgotten...

Yeah, I own the base game. I'll look over the character creation and the randomness of the Cities of Adventure.

I might go with this.


Race: Dwarf (+1 base health, 4-point disadvantage worth 0)

Cost
Health 6 (9 points)
Stamina 4 (5 points)

Skills:
Endure +2 (2 points)
Sneak +2 (2 points)

Mind - 5/1 (8 points)
Body - 4/1 (6 points)
Spirit - 3/0 (4 points)

• Critical Hit - Ranged: If your attack score* is at least 6 higher than your enemy’s Mind value, you inflict +1 damage. (8 points)
• Jack of All Trades - You have +1 to all base attributes, and a total base attribute limit of 12, but your base damage in any phase cannot exceed 1. 0 points.
• Heathen - You have -1 base magic damage. Worth 4 points.


*Last version of these rules says "attack roll" but it should be "score" to keep in line with the hero card the power comes from, and keep its intended function.

I'm sorry, but I'll need to skip this game.
I'm going to work a lot the next couple of weeks, so I'm not sure if I'll be able to keep up with the turn taking.

OK, Jesper, thanks for letting us know. I'll open it up, but I guess we can play with three if nobody else joins.

Looks good. I had missed that you were allowed to have 2 advantages if both totaled 6 points.

I'll set up a game thread.

Thomas, are you going to make character sheets for us again?

Dwarves seem to be pretty popular. We had 3 in the first game (out of 4, I think), and 2 out of 3 here.

A ranged dwarf??

Interesting mix of 1 ranged, 1 melee, and 1 magic based characters. Should be interesting.

Yeah, if there's a particular image you want to use, post it and I'll whip up some cards, or I can just look for something.

Have to say that I'm a little confused about what a "Hybrid" is.

I'm guessing part man / part beast or something like that. So... this lizard man looks cool

In Terrinoth, "Hybrid" was kind of vague. It originally implied dragon/human hybrids (created by the dragonlords, I believe), but many of them featured on cards are a mix of other creatures. It's kind of a catch-all for weird humanoid creatures, basically.

I'll have sporadic access over the next week and a half or so, but I'll try to log in when I can.

I totally forgot about making the character cards. Some one should have reminded me!





And posting mine for completion's sake.
