This is a top-notch article here. Can't add more other then to say thank you for this article. I have read a lot of WWII history and although I knew what the Enigma machine was, I really did not clearly understand how it worked. This helps immensely! Go to Comment
I'd leave that up for the DM of course :) And yes, one could omit the safeties such as being usable only outdoors and not being able to enclose things in rock-strong cloud. Then they become dangerous indeed.
Great article. I also like the idea of treating Mind Control as basically a form of illusion. It has the disadvantage of requiring notes/private chats/etc to implement fully though.
Willingly playing out the effects of mind-control should provide some form of reward to the player, even in the case it leads to their character's demise. Perhaps some form of boon on their next character.
The Dodge DynaMax is a rare care, coming at exactly the wrong time in history. The End of the muscle car era was nigh, and the market was already filled out with GTOs, Mustangs, Camaros, Chevelles, Novas and a dozen other high performance poor handling vehicles. The DynaMax had a plan to dominate the market with a combination of factory turbochargers and a complex eight speed gearbox. The machine was planned to triumph over the human driver element. What ended up happening was excess costs and mechanical issues saw the turbochargers removed and replaced with a conventional supercharger, and the eight speed transmission ended up being the bane of the car's existence. More DynaMaxes were destroyed or totalled by transmission failures than anything else. The car remains an ugly and ambitious reminder of a day gone by
