  1. Starfinder OOC

    Well, we can dynamically assign people as needed. Turn 1 we have Evanna give orders as Captain, Sunshine do some manuevers, and Echo focus shields while Jexa operates the turret, for example. Turn 2, Sunshine keeps evading, Echo locks down some damage we took while Jexa does a sensor lock and Evanna takes the shot. And so on. Good point on Jordayn, he's the logical choice for medic. The crew positions listed there would be sort of the 'default' choices at any encounter's beginning. Our official crew roles don't define the only actions we can take.

    Captain would be Evanna, I think. Co-pilot could be anyone who has Pilot skill. Tactical also uses Pilot. Science Officer uses Computer, so I think Jexa could do that? Medic is just something I threw on because it's something the ship has space for, but it's not something we necessarily have to have an official one of on the crew.
  3. Ah, thanks for this. Helps tremendously, even with the books.
  4. Nina has a point about Starfinder. Really, any of those options could work for me, but it'd be cool to have a game that's science fiction as opposed to science fantasy. You can put me down for 2 as well.
  5. Seems like a cool starting point for a setting. Do you envision this as a wargame, with the PCs as soldiers against the AI? Or is the war the backdrop against which the game's events take place, while the PCs ply other trades? It reminds me a little of Eclipse Phase (full disclosure, most sci fi settings involving space and rogue AIs remind me of Eclipse Phase), albeit with a very different set of circumstances surrounding the 'Fall.' That said, it does beg questions of locality. Is humanity ensconced in strongholds throughout the solar system, while the AIs crouch protectively over the burned-out husk of the Earth? Are there AIs that sided with humanity at first? Perhaps to be betrayed and destroyed by them later, or to change sides? Or perhaps they remain, operating in secret to protect themselves from the anti-AI sentiment prevalent among humankind, trying to give their organic progenitors a fighting chance? Sorry, I guess I have more questions at this point than input, but I feel like that just indicates my interest in the subject.

  7. OOC: The Offical Hero Academy Thread

    I'm happy with Keiko's build. I'm spending exp, but not changing anything previously existing on her. And once the site lets me edit her sheet, I can even show the expenditures...
  8. Savage Rifts: Here Comes Tomorrow OOC Thread

    Just to confirm my suspicion...I think for Squidge to 'block' psionic senses, she'd need the Conceal Arcana power, yeah? Or could she use Telepathy to 'jam' them somehow?
  9. OOC Thread for AWS Discussion

    I wonder if the initial reaction would be disbelief. How long would it take general acceptance that they're real to circulate? I suppose official sources backing them up would limit disbelief to the 'Apollo Landings Were Faked' crowd maybe... Hmm.
  10. Nice to see that there's this much interest in the project!
  11. OOC Thread for AWS Discussion

    For what it's worth, Nina, I actually really liked the Project 8 idea. The project itself wasn't confusing once it was explained, the post where you introduced it was just a little confusingly written. It's different than what we've done before though, and an interesting way to get new faces introduced and give us new situations to play out.

    Kia will, of course, go. And be tickled pink to be asked to go.
  13. Question about Telepathy

    Yep! And yeah, you're right. Best to be smart about it. Sprinkle in some imperfect trades, some deals that go sour, just so it looks like you're another Warren Buffet, not a magic space wizard. But that's the basics.
