  1. bearing in mind that the timeline so faar is about 100 years + after fallout 2 ends...

     

    i think some form of technology & civilisation in certain area would have been achieved

     

    how about a whole new breed of transports? a type of solar/methane powered buggy? or at least a rechargeable battery?

  2. Umm...how is the populace supposed to "take down" the mayor? With groups like C-SWAT to keep the peace you'll be seeing a lot of folks starting a round of "Let's play dying" before they fly the mayor's bitchass out of there under gunship escort.

     

    Same way as every other angry mob in history. weight of numbers to overcome the well trained units. After that, chase him down with looted vehicles....

     

    I think that, in the flavor of Tramsmetroploitan, you would get a smiler to make everything OK.

     

    so many ways to off characters, and we are really having to think about it?

     

    Keep the players on their toe's. Its no real fun if the party cant get killed in a gruesome way!

  3. well, money is realative

     

    so are caps...

     

    i think the best bet is to have each area use its own currency (alot of places will use caps, but Brotherhood ares have their own cash - so will quite a few other areas

     

    precious metals, precious stones, jewelary, etc. I think these would be the most stable single currency

  4. "CHARLIE 1 & 2, THIS IS BRAVO 1. I DONT WANT TO RISK DAMAGING ANYTHING IMPORTANT. FOLLOW LANCE CORPORAL GUNNAR'S INSTINCTS. CHARLIE 1 GO TOPSID3E & SEE IF YOU CAN MAKE AN OBSERVATION OF THE CARGO DECK. DRILL A HOLE OR SOMETHING. THERE MUST BE TOOLS AROUND IF YOU DONT HAVE THE NECESSARY EQUIPMENT TO HAND. OVER."

     

    "BRAVO 3. THIS IS BRAVO 1. HOWS THE DOWNLOAD COMING ALONG? HOW MUCH IS DONE? OVER."

     

    Fornway now had to consider his own situation. He knew there were people on the other side of the door. They had been fixing the ship. They knew he & his team were onboard. Dallas was right. This smelt like a setup. But what could he do. Orders were orders.

     

    Fornway took his fire team to one siie & instructed them in whispered tones.

     

    "Dallas, Carson. You lads stay here. We are heading topside. We'll blow a hole above them while you blow this door off its hinges. Get it preped while were going topside. When i signal you via your HUD to let you know we are ready to go, you give that door a good thumpn & tell them who we are & why were here. If & when they refuse to surrender, you blow the door. Stay clear though. if they fire, we will blow the roof out & take them in a crossfire. Understood? Good. Now go."

     

    BRAVO 1 departs the level, working their way topside to come at the engine room from above, while BRAVO 2 prep the door to blow.

  5. I like it. Much more stream lined. If CP for skills are reduced a little at creation & ip awarded is lower. That could work great. I always had some issues about some things like cross over knowledge.

     

    Electronics & electronic security - if u know about one, you would know something of the other.

     

    SMG & Rifle - they cant be that different + its one thing to fire an assault weapon, but another to use a sniper rifle effectivley.

     

    ETC...

    Good job. i can see myself using this in the future.

  6. Im still good to go

     

    How about if we were a gang, but are now going big time? Weve just made a couple of big scores.

     

    BTW: What is our element? (Pro-Hitmen, Robbery, smuggling, drugs, extortion, cybercrime? we have a wide plethora of options)

     

    Also: DO we have anything we wont do? (no killing women & children, no drugs, certain type of people we leave alone?)

     

    And: is there anyone else in our oragnisation? are we it or do we have some NPC's too?

     

    This is not necessarily directed at Mr X, but at the group

  7. Mr MOrt, you obviously havent been taking your medication...

     

    Penis: never get accused of penis envy ever again! get a feel for how the other side of the fence feels, or just get a good conversation piece for the lockerroom. (Mort note: silly, sick and twisted. Feel free to ignore)

     

    WTF have you been SMOKING??

     

    double feet: one leg, two feet.

     

    Whats??? how does this work?

     

    Others are fine. I suggest that multiple of the same mutation are bought exponentially.

     

    (1 cost 2 points, 2 costs 4, 3 costs 8, etc...)

  8. For those of you who dont know about a pet project that mort & i have been cooking up over the last couple of weeks, heres the heads up...

     

    The 'Fallout' saga has claimed the hearts, minds & in some cases, lives of millions of avid gamers from around the world. It is truley an epic series. Thats why we have sought to pay it homage, by knocking up a cyberpunk plugin for the genre.

     

    The details of this can be found HERE, a Wikipedia for the Fallout computer game series & on a website dedicated to it HERE

     

    Now to my point:

     

    There will be a playtest of the game in the VftE online games board starting very soon. Anyone interested, please post here or contact myself or Mort. Futher details will be provided as the arrive.

     

    Hope to hear from you all soon

     

    (& yes, you will be able to play a ghoul with a tree growing out of his head, or a super mutant carrying a minigun like it was a toy...)

  9. Its Intelligence and Tech stat are really just tests of diagnostic cabilities and physical hardrive capacity for the Robot's core computer.

    A 10 Intelligence computer could have 20 skills, up to a max of +4 each, which makes it on par with a human fairly well. Although I wouldn't compare intelligence with human beings, because it doesn't really mean much.

     

    i disagree...

     

    In my opinion, the human brain has imagination, something an 'Anima' could not posess. Imagination directly affects the relative level of intelligence that the person in question has. The INT & TECH stats are directly linked to the imagination capabilities of the brain.

     

    Ask any artist or engineer. They will tell you that if an artificial brain saw a pile of parts or painting supplies, they would see what they made. Not what they could make. That is why human intelligence would still have the capability to be higher.

     

    all mind based stats should be limited to level 4 or 5 in my opinion. This is to reflect the inability to rapidly adapt or 'think outside the box'.

     

    As for the skills: lvl 4 sounds good for 2020. Maybe lvl 5 in 203X

  10. personally, i still think that the up & coming bunch of crooks taking on the mob & the law was gonna be cool

     

    but, given these options, i pick being a bunch of guys from the mafia. a few hitmen, their fixers, the racketeers, etc. maybe were a team of guys who work on one operation. a 'CELL' for want of better words. gun running, smuggeling, etc...

     

    when we have the idea of who we are down, i can get a character sorted.

  11. ok

     

    2 luck uses

     

    u get a number of 'jammy git' points equal to half your luck score

     

    these can be used to reduce the score of your opponents roll (used beforehand). These replenish after every session/adventure.

     

    Luck - 1 ponit will reduce damage etc to a non fatal state. 2 will save you totally. These do not replenish.

     

    hows that work out?
