General Discussion / Skill as "Right tool for the job"?
« Last post by Sturn on March 09, 2022, 02:58:06 pm »
For a while I fiddled with a house rule I called “chained actions”. My thought was to use one roll to affect the next roll in certain situations. Imagine a leader of a sailing ship’s crew needing to direct the bridge? Both Operating and Leadership make sense, so perhaps make him roll Operating with success and advantages affecting the follow on Leadership roll. I liked it at first but too clunky and slowed play with extra rolls. But, I still wanted the leader with ship experience in that situation to have some sort of an advantage over the leader who had never set foot on a ship before.

Then I thought of a much simpler method. Using the “Right tool for the job” concept, I thought what about making certain related skills a “tool”? So that Leadership roll would require the character to have Operating as a “tool”, if not apply setback to this Leadership roll when he directs the crew? Fixing a robot's brain using Mechanics? Perhaps consider Computers skill as a “tool”. The character rolling the action could use the game rule of “skilled assistance” to meet the requirement of the “skill tool” as long as the other character helped him or her.

Thoughts?

This may be better in its own thread, but the After Dawn (Destiny Hack) Setting seems to be missing some things mentioned in their pages. A skill called Ancient Teachings on page 28 of the 1.1 PDF.

Your Settings / Final Fantasy Genesys

So I remade a Final Fantasy RPG for Genesys that used to be a d20 system I had made. I have played it a few times and we have had fun with it (although playing can get more complicated and seem easier to win fights for some it has worked for my group)

I thought I would share the public link here, feel free to use and record and such if you wish but please do not try and resell and give credit if you use in a stream or add to it)

I'll try this with a willing crowd and see what they like about it!

I'd be interested to hear how it goes. When my group did the playtest of it, we got away from the ghost as soon as we could, which led to some other parts of the scenario getting more developed, since we then needed some other way to escape.

I wonder what kind of new mechanics they're going to attempt to use this? Maybe rehash some of the old ones from Star Wars?

Oh, I hadn't considered that. It would be nice to see some updates. If I go back to Star Wars, I was already considering using the Genesys version of the rules completely, even trying to to go with the treeless character creation if I could manage it.

There was a Genesys re-hash of the Force rules using the new narrative dice without the Force Die. I really liked the re-make of it too. I'd have to find the document. I want to say I found it on Reddit or the old FFG forums.

General Discussion / Re: Publishing on Foundry - What paper size?
« Last post by filbot3 on June 28, 2021, 09:58:19 pm »
What paper size is preferred on the Foundry when creating PDF's? This is the A4 vs Letter argument. Being US-based, I'm of course used to Letter. But, if I put something on the Foundry, which should I go with since those downloading it may be from various places in the world? Or is it a moot point since a PDF reader will convert it for your printer anyway if you decide to print it out?

I tried to see if there was a standard for the Foundry, but didn't find anything.

Check out these resources. Maybe the page size would be impacted by the intended device size you're wanting to be viewed on.

The set of documents I miss are the Dark Heresy Armoury and Xenos Report on the Tau.

Hoob actually made their own website for it!

Thank you for sharing this! I've sent it to my friend who enjoyed this game as well!

That's pretty exciting! I would love a big lore section. I wonder what kind of new mechanics they're going to attempt to use this? Maybe rehash some of the old ones from Star Wars?
