  1. very good point...

     

    however...

     

    Couls it work something like this?:

     

    If a character makes a luck test at a critical time he can have a potential death averted (gun jams, turns head at last moment) or even get off that shot that really needs to be made, figures out the shut down code for the nuke by sheer chance...

     

    i can live with that. That way, we can make different difficulty levels for the roll.

     

    And even have it back fire if the roll is failed/botched

     

    critical failure on luck roll = opposite outcome

     

    Example:

     

    Critical failure to avaid the hand grenade. Player trips over & lands on top of grenade, double damage

  2. "WTF!!!"

     

    Tekagi ceases to fire. He surveys his surroundings for a second or two. Then he decides that his best chance is to go after Inaba. Afterall, shes the soldier...

     

    "Wait for me!"

     

    Tekai follows Inaba, firing at whatever seems to be attacking them...

  3. they also stoned the earth from the heavens!

     

    (something the dutch have been doing for years [:)] )

     

    anyway, i still think they would be ok. at most, the sea would rise about 3 inches if i reckon right (unless they melted over 1/4, then everyone dies!) so they should be ok

  4. FORNWAY

    This could be really bad. From what intel he received from HQ, this ship could be carrying wounded or at least hospitalised people. Worse yet, with a medical monitoring server, this whole ship could be a delivery system for a biological weapon...

     

    "Hear that boys, sounds like we've got ourselves a boat full of organ donors!"

     

    Best not unsettle the troops with that just yet. Best get some confirmation on his theory before any rash decisions are made.

  5. I think talsorian covered the humanity loss issue pretty well.

     

    - borgs - oldschool borgs skill lose HUM exactly the same. the difference is that 'ee' are brought up expecting & anticipating their new body. nothing cold hearted. its all good. the new bodies are much more realistic & are designed so that the loss is minimal. Also, transferance from meat to metal is aided with compulsary psych-therapy. thats why there is no loss. Its a metal body, but it still bleeds & needs to eat. its more like a synthetic human than simply a machine.

     

    - State - theyre still human. nano from birth, you couldnt possibly notice any difference. you simply wouldnt know better. why would you be cold hearted?

  6. O_o

     

    you got bored didnt you...

     

    Mr. Mort! go take your medication!

     

    seriously though...

     

    in 203X, i could see the bloc becoming the powerhouse of europe. they have the last secure data bank on the planet. they have control of very large amounts of money that no-one can prove they own (so embezel it or invest it in their own business) and they are always neutral!

     

    they could rule the euro theatre!

  7. All good then.

     

    On behalf of Mr. Mort & my self, cheers mike!

     

    yeah, all the mutant ATTR stuff is good to go by what you said. As for my idea of maximum & a penalty:

     

    The idea was that you could have had a penalty, but to get a penalty worth while would mean that you would have to spend the extra just to get to '0 ATTR'. Bu on the flipside, if you simply impose a max limit, then the other Character points get spent else where.

     

    Middle ground being, both. max limit with a small negative mod. you have to spend points just to get to ATTR 1 but not many. Also, u cant have a super gorgeous ghoul or super ghoul thats still ugly as hell!

     

    that was the plan

  8. You have raised a point that i havent thought of yet:

     

    Scandinavia has/had a massive databank!

    Circa datakrah, would this datavault not be protected? it would not have been designed around standard OS software & certainly would not have been accessable via the net. It would have been a stand alone system. Data would have been transfered to it via hard copy, surley?

     

    Also, what happens to all the other computers that werent on the net? did they go tits up when the net went gaga?

     

    Anyway, scandinavian bloc...

     

    I could see them coming out pretty well off in 203X. wiht all data removed from circulation & all history becoming relative, then i think there would be a big boom for illicit activity. And as the info you have provided seems to be rather nefarious in nature, Holland would seem to be the new UBER-godfather of the blackmarket

  9. After reading the info, ghouls are dependant on radiation in very small ammounts, but they are not 100% immune. very high levels still harm them.

     

    as for looks, ghouls are called ghouls because they look like walking corpses so:

     

    Ghoul ATTR max = 2 suffers a -2 penalty too

     

    Super mutants max = 3 suffers a -2 penalty too

     

    Mutants ATTR max = 6 suffers a -2 (can still be really pretty, but not super model level)

     

    hows that?

  10. Very very cool there MR Mort.

     

    how ever..

     

    Wings:

    i still have miss givings over the whole skill/mutation issue. Why not let them fly (they have bought the wings after all) & use flight in the same manner as 'Pilot'? hows that work for you?

     

    Super Mutants:

    Howabout +5 BOD / -4 INT / -1 REF / -2 ATTR ?

     

    Ghouls:

    ATTR 0?

    Rad-Resistance of 90% (they arent immune, but will ignore 90% of the damage that would be done to them.

    Rad-Dependance (similar to Drug-Dependance) must be subjected to a low level of radiation every so often or they begin to die?

  11. (OOC: Malek, your an evil man...)

     

    FORNWAY

     

    "Stop that process Gunnar! Now!"

     

    Fornway reviews the data he is receiving from the comms room.

     

    "What the hell is that box? And what the hell is going on abord this ship? Its all wrong!"

     

    This was not what he had planned. Where were the damn crewmen. Where were the bogies he had observed onroute? Non of it was normal, not one damn thing.

     

    "Alright, listen up! This is totally FUBAR. We will be going with plan 'B'. We all pair off & search this damn boat until all the crew & its contents are in our possesion."

     

    After a brief consideration, Fornway issued his men with thier new orders.

     

    "Corporal Morrison, take Private Greer. You will be 'CHARLIE ONE'. Lance Corporal Gunnar, take Private Donners. You will be 'CHARLIE TWO'. Lance Corporal Carson, take Private Dallas. You will be 'BRAVO TWO'. Privates Charles and Ericsson. You will be 'BRAVO THREE'. Private Avery and myself will be 'BRAVO ONE'."

     

    "Now spread out & sweep this level of the ship. Check each door before you go through. Make sure there are no boobytraps. Standing orders remain. Upon contact, request surrender. If they dont submit, terminate them. Were not taking any chances here. Something is really wrong here. This feels like a setup."

     

    "Privates Charles and Ericsson. You will remain here and cover our entrance and exit point. Make sure the data in these computers gets recovered."

     

    Fornway asked himself two questions while his squad readied themselves to continue with plan 'B'. What the hell was he to do about this box? And why on earth was the data on the computers using such an archaic format? Time to call this in to command.
