  1. @DShomshak: Planning to do just that @Lord Liaden: I do, and it is the place I start @PhilFleischmann: I envision both. A deck of two parts, a suited, numbered part and a major Arcana part (Have not named it yet) it will have the unique cards. Thanks for the lead, never heard of Everway. Plan to post results.
  2. Need help building an Alt deck for fortune telling in Turakian Age Short pithy names for concepts and events in Ambrethel. Anything would be helpful. Thanks in advance for the crowdsourcing, what ever form it takes.
  3. I should do that, just saw the thread, read it and posted. Now its starting to get real. I know it's not for everyone, have to cast as large a net as possible.
  4. That is my hope. To form another group I am a Lllooooooooooong time HERO GM / Player / Evangelist and I have my sights set on the next thing for On line gaming. Called Tabletop Simulator. Available on Steam for a one time cost of 19.99 Better than Roll20 which puts you on the treadmill. Recently a British programmer has finished a HERO Virtual Tabletop for this software and it is being play tested, going to be released ... <Buckeroo> Real soon </Buckerroo> I want to learn it, master it and run a Turakian Age game. TTS (Tabletop Simulator) is Virtual, 3 D and even usable with Oculus, though that part we are not doing. I admit that the interface will be new, but the game itself is HERO, have that down in spades. We would use Skype for VOIP My pitch is this, I have the time for a dedicated 6 hour a week game, likely on Sat or Sun, definitely not on a Tues. I am a Role player and enjoy Role play, Intrigue / adventure and combat I have definite ideas on how Magic, Clerical and combat works in Turakian Age. Turak itself is a Myth, it is a story you tell to scare children, Turak is so far removed form the events of Arduna that the Ages have made any effect it had on the world nothing but hoax or hallucinogenic fever dream, as the Gods intend. If you have interest, I will consider all char submissions as character description / history and will build the characters myself, leaving !25% to be finished by the player.
  5. Alrighty, did a Fantasy HERO game happen? Anyone still looking? By which I mean, an online game, not one in the East Bay Threaddus Resurrectus
  6. Is there a source for art of the Turakian Age? Is there a collection of Drakine art somewhere? Or suitable substitutes for Drakine? What would be most useful is a line up of the major Turakian races, if not just the Humans by country. Maybe I will have to find an artist who would undertake that project for a few shekels.
  7. Figured it out with help from a friend. All good.
  8. Currently no idea how to 'Clim my Account' Have two messages
  9. Appeal to Denial of Entry of Utgor Son of Angor I am Stave, retained to argue for overturning the Denial of Entry and the Admission of Utgor Son of Angor to this Fair City. Question 13. This question, as probing and fair as any, was in fact answered by Utgor. The answer given did transcribe his surprise, not an objection to the question. Utgor Son of Angor is not now, nor has he ever been possessed, as I understand Possessed to be defined in City canon. Question 17. This question was answered in all honesty. Question 18. Utgor Son of Angor hails from a homeland that defines the word 'they' to only refer to bipedal races. Utgor Son of Angor's plain understanding of the word 'they' has one frame of reference, bipedal persons he currently travels with that are also entering this fair city. Utgor Son of Angor would amend his answer to Question 18, he would strike his given answer and amend that his unnamed and well bred horse is not literate. Thank you for your attention to this matter. Stave

  11. Mallet, scanned your post but do not have time now. The newest construct of HERO Mechanics that just came to me. Buy the Images as IPE. Use Naked Advantage, Personal Immunity, put Usable by Others on the Naked Personal Immunity. Now The Images are seen by granted Immunity and we dodge the whole Limitation/Advantage debate. More later today.
  12. We are in search of proper game balance and that reaches, so far, into mechanics, SFX and metaphysics; ie Whether to incur additional expense simply because it could clarify beyond a simple mechanical construct of the system. We, at least I am, are looking for the simplest answer. And that may be outside of Powers in the system and include skills, see my EDIT in my last post.
  13. Problem seems to be Variable Limitation; also SFX. You are suggesting a narrowing of SFX and what is and is not possible by SFX, not Power, Limitation or Advantage and by extension Compound powers. In a Fantasy genre, Magic is the SFX I am dealing with. Specifically Turakian Age which has 12 main branches of Magic. Generally my starting point was anything is possible. I do not subscribe to Tech being superior to Magic in SFX. The answer to these questions concerning my op, raise questions about how any sufficiently creative player can justify anything by SFX. I just need to have a firm grasp of when to step in with mechanics. Ie. for Images to only work on a descendant of a Family line or any lineage. That just seems to beg for a Detect with Discriminatory. Though that leads to Naked Advantage and Powers that could link, as Link could be Variable Limitation. EDIT: Though with Magic, Research of Spells is a thing, so research for a particular Limit would lead to amount of time and sufficient knowledge to include such a limitation.
  14. A power that acts as another Power, is that other Power. The spell proposed only wants to do one thing. Display information, albeit to a specified target or targets. This is Images. It does not do damage, it affects more than one target, has nothing to do with willpower. Images can select for Senses or Sense Groups. Trigger has the only mechanic that links a Detect specifically to it for X variable. I do not see the argument for MI.
