  1. Re: OMCV 1? That was actually one of the proposals tossed around in the 6th Ed forums that appealed to me particularly with figured Characteristics dropped. The main issue I had with it is it would be more points to fiddle with.
  2. Re: Re-introducing COM to 6th Edition I was thinking about SA and Com recently and I see no reason why they couldn't co exist in the same game. Striking Appearance would be a form of specialization in appearance or aspect, the character in question is particularly outstanding in one area Comeliness covers over the rest or has feature(s) that will appeal to a certain groups strongly. This would allow for players to create "the most beautiful Predator of them all" (if its going to matter in the campaign) or the epitome of Goth mystique (though most people find him to be a weirdo that
  3. Re: Re-introducing COM to 6th Edition How does your suggestion relate to reintroducing an Appearance characteristic? It seems more appropriate to adding variation to the Striking Appearance Talent which is fine but not really the goal here.
  4. Re: Omcv 1? Stupid Question: Can you get CSLs as Persistent?
  5. Re: Ben 10: Alien Force Don't put all the extra work on yourself (You've got thousands to go. ) leave the older write ups as is since it's easy to convert for readers and do the new ones in whatever edition best suits you.
  6. Re: Re-introducing COM to 6th Edition Overall this is not a big deal for me. The "Eye of the Beholder" boiler plate attached to Striking Appearance works just as well for Comeliness, IMO. Either modify the results or the GM can simply decide when it applies or doesn't. If your race's appearance is so selective its not going to come up enough to be worth it then get Com with a limitation or consider it part of the DF Complication for your race. Really, Presence is just as culturally specific as appearance. What's charming, imposing, seductive or persuasive in one culture is r
  7. Re: Re-introducing COM to 6th Edition You seem to be coming at this from the POV that Comeliness was a weakness and a failure at what it was supposed to do. I'd say that's not really the audience this thread was aimed at. The thing is it has just become another thread arguing over the appropriateness of Comeliness as a Characteristic and which means is "better" with the same old arguments being tossed around and fought over. The thread is about implementing Com and some new ways to use it. Not about how much better it is (if you're interested in the topic, you prefer it alre
  8. Re: The REALLY important 6th Edition question Choke points are generally a bad thing I agree. And notoriously easy to unknowingly slip into scenarios. There should generally be more than one way to give at a vital clue or other information than a single deduction or die roll. Any type of success or failure based on a single binary occurrence might be tense but isn't necessarily dramatic. Though I do think victory/success should not be assured in most conflict/obstacle situations. The PCs should be able to screw things up to the point success is impossible or Pyrrhic and usel
  9. Re: Re-introducing COM to 6th Edition Is there any chance of letting this thread go back to it original topic? It's quickly turned into a defend your preference thread which seems odd since the those that wanted Comeliness removed have won (until some highly unlikely future edition re-addition). Yes, there are going to be some statements that express a preference for how Com handled things in a thread about reintroducing it but that's not really a call to rehash an old debate.
  10. Re: Post "gotchas" here Whoops! You're right, I'd conflated some of the text in my mind over the years.
  11. Re: Post "gotchas" here Rapid Attack no longer allows a Full Move and Attack instead it allows the character to perform a multi attack as a half phase action instead of a Full Phase.
  12. Re: How to: Spatial Compression technology Yeah, at one point she's carrying around a kid of 10 or so in a unit thin as a book and about the size of back pack with the same weight. Possibly a Gadget/Weapon pool changeable in Combat with a OIF and other limitations to reflect it's nature. Make the points expendable, that is if she loses or empties a weapon she has to buy it again or wait until she can "refill" her pool at an appropriate locationl. Hmm, Invisible to Weapon Detection or huge Concealment Bonus? Summon: Base or Vehicle? Simple stru
  13. Re: Re-introducing COM to 6th Edition kdansky, please. This not the thread to rehash this debate for the nth time..
