    More Monsters?

    I suppose I'd better get the flavor text and illustrations ready. Let's see if I can make this thing happen.

    More Monsters?

    They are specific to my campaign, but some might find a home in yours. new demons, variant trolls, the emotion-themed Exarchs of Hate, Joy and Pain. Some normal animals you don't see in other works. Wyverns... Undead Wyverns... icy wyverns, flaming wyverns...

    More Monsters?

    Do we need more monsters? I have ~190 critters at hand, and I wondered if they'd be welcomed? I'm going through the document now, adjusting stuff and thinking about selling it. Maybe get some illustrations going as well. I might just post it for free, as I have some other stuff.

    Gamma World Hero?

    Chew on this, ya mutant freaks! I was working on this right up to my wife's cancer diagnosis. I sort of associate it with her condition now, and have no real intention of finishing it. Want the Word doc? Might hand it over. I've stolen some talents from somewhere. If you recognize your work. You have first my apology and second my promise to remove it. Other than stuff obviously ripped from Gamma World, all of this is me. Gamma Terra Public.pdf

    Anyone Have PA Hero yet?

    Re: Anyone Have PA Hero yet? I like it. I think I'm going to just lay back and rip off Gamma World or S.T.A.L.K.E.R. wholesale. Both are very possible with this book. My only complaint, and I'm really being silly complaining at all, is the amount of space used for settings. I'm pretty sure most folks are going Twilight:2000, Gamma World or Road Warrior, and the settings just take up too much space for my taste. That said... I do love this book.

    Ripping off the Late Roger Zelazny...

    Re: Ripping off the Late Roger Zelazny... I was thinking along those lines as well. That would be an seperate slot. wouldn't it? Mind Link, Teleport, Extradimensional Teleport, I believe that brings the cost per person in any given deck to 3. I'm very sleepy... so I'll do the real math later. Now, would you allow a character to draw any person for 3 pts and add them to the deck, or just use those 3 slots to call and teleport anyone who they'd made a PS: Artist roll "against?" Sure you'd have to keep a list, but it didn't seem like a huge investment to make a trump, from, say, a sharpened spoon and a dirty wall. I think balance demands a point cost for each card.

    Ripping off the Late Roger Zelazny...

    Re: Ripping off the Late Roger Zelazny... It occurs to me I'm reading too much into Roger's writing. The "Summoning" is actually, Teleport Usable by Other, isn't it?
  14. ... is no small undertaking. A player has recently asked to play a card player who uses a Trump-like deck to cast spells and do Amberish things. Amber being one of my many influences, maybe it's time to incorporate this concept into Caleon. Roger had these cards, based upon the Tarot, called Greater Trump. With them, you could communicate, travel, and even bring distant folks to your location with a single card. Whole decks could be cast like tarot to foretell the future (though bit vague, the cards were always right), telling you were the folks in the deck related to the current problem. Okay. 1 item, many functions: Multipower, right? I think each card is a separate item. They look a little like this: Cost Power 5 Higher Arcana: Multipower, 60-point reserve, (60 Active Points); all slots Independent (-2), OAF (-1), Concentration (1/2 DCV; -1/4) 0u 1) Communicate: Mind Link , Human class of minds, Person Pictured (5 Active Points); Independent (-2), OAF (-1), Concentration (1/2 DCV; -1/4) 1u 2) Call Ally: Summon 300-point Specific Person Pictured On Card (60 Active Points); Independent (-2), OAF (-1), Concentration (1/2 DCV; -1/4) 0u 3) Arcana Travel: Teleportation 1", MegaScale (1" = 100,000 km; +1 1/2), Can Be Scaled Down 1" = 1km (+1/4) (5 Active Points); Independent (-2), Only To Specific Place Pictured (-1), OAF (-1), Concentration (1/2 DCV; -1/4) Total Powers Cost: 6 6 points for all that. Is each card 6 points, or are they just 1 point slots in the deck? And those 0's are bugging me too. Should Hero Designer be outputting 0 cost slots?

    Ring of Bouyancy

    Re: Ring of Bouyancy It looks fine. People are always gettin' dumped off the South Bridge in my campaign's home city. I bet these would fetch a pretty penny.
