Well ocean sight and muffled sight both give the same +1.

by ArkaimArkaim, 25 Feb 2017 21:06

Following up on GoldS's observation above:

  • using 14 gave: 6 filtering scripts, networking functions, 4 spectrum transmission functions.
  • using 24 gave: 3 filtering scripts, 4 networking functions, 13 spectrum transmission functions.
  • using 10 gave: 1 filtering scripts, 5 networking functions, 4 spectrum transmission functions.

Then got drone signature.

  • using 10 more gave: 5 filtering scripts, 0 networking functions, 5 spectrum transmission functions. (non-etheric)
  • using 10 more gave: 3 filtering scripts, 2 networking functions, 3 spectrum transmission functions. (etheric, tob, myers sampler)
  • using 10 more gave: 4 filtering scripts, 3 networking functions, 1 spectrum transmission functions, 1 release the hounds. (etheric, tob, no sampler)

I'm going to remove Command Script from the main page (please revert if anyone finds it).

Interesting, I got the "can't quite put your finger on it" message with tome of binding AND myers sampler equipped, but got "captured hound essence" with just tome of binding. This is odd, but consistent with binding Twisted Hounds directly (does not work with Myers sampler equipped). EDIT: If Borrowing Drone Memory is correct, you need at least one copy of Release the Hounds in order to get more copies here. Makes sense.

Call data:

Only two samples so far but both had treasures first, then fish. I suspect two separate drop groups.

With -2 RP, I get the default message with the Third Eye Ganger, Dockhand, and Dock Security.
With -1 RP and 0 RP, I get the "weight shot" message against the Third Eye Ganger, but not the Dockhand or Dock Security.
At 1 RP, I get the "Weighty shot" message against all three.

It looks like the weighty shot message kicks in when your RP is greater than the opponent's ED

After installation:

The doctors put you under for what seems like a moment. When you wake, they've replaced your old flesh and blood with a new <part>.

You've gained <5 x body cost> energy of Cyber Sickness.

Does Living Hand give cybersickness?

Thanks!

I don't tend to get a ton of time to play tabletop and card games, but it's always nice to have various options available and this does look neat. Kicked in a bit towards getting a set to play with.

Re: I made a game! by CryptodynamicCryptodynamic, 19 Feb 2017 15:14

I've played this a little bit and it is neat! (Or rather, to be honest, I looked at various cards and imagined making various decks, which is about how far I normally get with TCGs) But it looks like the kickstarter is well on its way. Good luck!

You shoot the hunter for 35 ranged damage as though he owes you something.

You sight the hunter like a carnival game target and shoot him for 38 ranged damage.

This version too.

I've got the "You've seen those flames before from far away, burning with the light of thousands of stars or thousands of minds with all their thoughts turned inward." result while etheric with the only relevant technique in my deck being Starry Gaze, so that's probably what triggers it. No Emerald Gift playing. I didn't start playing until 2010 so I didn't encounter the Herald when she first appeared, so it's either that technique being in the deck or possibly the Stellar Appreciation skill.

You fire on the poseur like an avenging spirit, dealing 34 ranged damage.
The poseur punches you for 1 melee damage.

You sight the poseur like a carnival game target and shoot him for 41 ranged damage

Single shot?

You chop the challenger for 10 melee damage, but he ducks behind cover, which absorbs all but 5 damage.
The challenger dives for cover.

You match the challenger's movement, tighten your hand on the grip, and fire a tight burst of shots. Recoil compensation be damned, the shots deal the challenger 47 ranged damage.
The challenger punches you for 1 melee damage.

You sight the challenger like a carnival game target and shoot him for 33 ranged damage.

Looks like (crone unlocked) version of mirror shot is singleshot, according to masked shot.

Hm.

You match the thug's movement, tighten your hand on the grip, and fire a tight burst of shots. Recoil compensation be damned, the shots deal the thug 33 ranged damage

With 2 ranged power and 4 to techs using strength.
If my understanding is correct, the tech itself had to supply at least (34/2-2-4)=11 base power here, right?

Nothing special for Fantastic Fiction active here, with or without Etheric.

by bigalphillipsbigalphillips, 16 Feb 2017 01:15

With Impressively (3) Chance of Choice Encounters and Moderately (2) Increased Chance of Combat Encounters, I got 20 energy of Observational Fiction. This seems different than indicated on the main page. Could it be randomly distributed per reset? Or something else.

Unlike Twisted Hounds, trash heaps have no qualms about attacking their kin.

You throw out your hands, calling a mound of trash into a humanoid shape. The simulacrum lumbers up to the trash heap and smashes it for 18 melee damage.

Ah, yes, that looks to be true. And probably explains the weird edits to the main page where it seemed heavy containment suit worked (w/o helmet) sometimes but not others.

0 ED = storms
3 ED = storms
4 ED = no storms (15 turns) — just achromatic mask
5 ED = no storms
8 ED = no storm (25 turns) — just crackling branch equipped.
13 ED = no storm (25 turns)

If Steady Coding is any indication, there is one message for Fae Sight (+2) , one message for other forms of etheric (+1), and no message if sober.

We're in Kickstarter to raise money for professional artwork and a higher quality print run! The game's had a good reception in the Bay Area for over a year, and it looks like we'll make our goal. knocks on lucky knuckle bones

Here's the link. Would love it if any of you feel inclined to spread the word to card gaming friends. We also have a Facebook page and twitter where we'll be doing giveaways etc.

(Stretch goal: I return to Metroplexity??)

Oh, and since I know some of you are familiar with Card Hunter, you might enjoy the tidbit that my friend Michael Pruess worked with me on this game — he created most of Acquisitions Incorporated, Caverns of Chaos, and Castle Mitternacht.

I am not getting *any* post-batch message without fae sight.

With fae sight:

The system dances with detail, more than you could ever see through a simple interface. It's like you're actually there, joining in its strange steps. (+2 View)

ETA: do other forms of etheric do something here now?
