HhHhHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I just watched the trailer for "just cause 2"...

Watch it and see if you can find any similarities?

Jeeesus, that was weird!

Just Cause 2 official game trailer for PlayStation 3 (PS3), Xbox 360, PC - No Ordinary Mission [HD]



ALSO.... BONUS!

Kiph seems eligible to try out as a side kick to AXE COP!

Clarification:
- Colonel 'Anderson': Killed by Helena in alien spacecraft. Believed to be alive by some Gambit personell, especially as Cormac sounded so like him on air.
- Major 'Titts': Helena, not real Last Gambit Rank, rather a joke among the Gambit Operatives.
- Captain Jhedai Arongo: The Pilot

Also, dark_dragon edited his post in which he rolled dice. As a result he got the "Tampered with" warning. I looked at the dice roll before his edit, and it was 15 both before and after.

But be careful with those edits, boys! ;)

Ooops! I dunno what the pilot is up to, but it cant be good.

I'm actually wondering Muro, I know that Kiph has something wrong with his blood, but looking back at your character sheet and the second episode, I can't figure out what. Does he carry a dangerous virus? I've read you say he had cancer, but that isn't contagious.

Or is it a part of Kiph's past he'd rather keep secret?

Hmmm... All these GM dice rolls in the open seem a little bit distracting.

All those in favor of hiding the GM rolls, say AYE now!

Aye.

AG: would you please explain what you want me to roll? I'm kind of confused

Quote
Cormac, the being up on the crate is crawling to attack you, and it is fast.
Roll 1d4 for initiative and add 4 (DEX) + 1(Pull the trigger) = 5 + 1d4 = ?

Where did you get DEX=4? I have DEX=6.

and

Quote
Huge Entity attacking Helena:
Melee SR 3 + 3 (claws) + 1d4 (inititative) = 6 +
Rolled 1d4 : 1, total 1

Slithering Entity viciously clawing at Cormac:
Melee SR 4 + 3 (blade tail) + 1d4 (initiative) = 7 +
Rolled 1d4 : 4, total 4


As I understand it,

Huge -> initiative = 7
Slither -> initiative = 11
Helena -> initiative = ?

And you want me to roll:

1D4 + 4*DEX + (GM defined difficulty  of 1) = my initiative.

Is low bad? Is low good? If low is bad, then why am i getting such a low score when i have my finger on the trigger? If
low is good, why does your DEX score work against you?

Kiph's blood is virulent posion, d_d. Up to AG how it works exactly, but in "ancient terms", i'd describe it as "save at -2 or die"  :P  (contact poison)

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

3 x AYE confirms my own feelings about this. I am NOT gonna hide dice rolls, however, I am gonna put them in the brand, sparking, shining new GM DICE ROLLS thread!

Ahhh... The Dark side of Rune Quest... too many dice rolls. :)

This here are the rules. This entry explains what you ask about: http://strolen.com/guild/index.php/topic,3724.msg65992.html#msg65992

The SHORT VERSION:

Your DEX score decides how FAST you are. LOW DEX = Slow, HIGH DEX = Fast.

DEX            Dex Strike 
                Rank Modifier
1-5               5               
6-9               4               
10-15           3               
16-19           2               
20+              1               


Your 6 DEX gives you a DEX "Strike Rank" score of 4. That is slow. Very slow.

You use the DEX only table cause you use firearms. The "Slither" and "Huge" use the DEX + SIZ table, and add "Natural Weapon SR", which = 3. (That table is not pasted into this thread. You have to follow the link to find the melee table)

If your head hurts: Welcome to Rune Quest based combat systems. You have been shielded from this earlier.

Soooooooo........

I want you to roll 1d4. And I want you to add 5 to that roll. That makes for a score between 6 and 9.

The 1d4 is my homebrew addition to the RQ system. It is to make combat rounds a bit more dynamic and exciting. In standard RQ everyone always do stuff in the same order.

AND, lastly:

In RQ based systems the one with the LOWEST initiative is first.

Helena is surprised, she does not have initiative this round. She must wait, and can only dodge and parry.
Riv is delayed by a fumble, he cannot act until the next round.

PHEW!

Aye.

AG: would you please explain what you want me to roll? I'm kind of confused

Finally, yes, the game has been too fast paced. It is NOT your fault d_d, "I am the GM. I am to blame", to cite an old player proverb.

I am so worked up about finally getting the game going again, I have been a little too... enthusiastic. ;)

I will try to let everyone at least post once each scene before doing a scene change... Okay? :)

dark_dragon: This up close and personal you double your rifle skill. 100 x 2 = 200 percent chance to hit.

Then you get to deduct 10, because that thing is awfully fast = 190. You do not get bonus for red dot reflex sight, because you do not have the time to aim properly.

So.... With a 190 percent chance to hit:
01-10% = Critical hit
11-38% = Special hit
39-95% = Normal hit
96-99% = Miss
100% = Fumble

valadaar came through!

Val: No skill check was needed to kill Ceres. She was an unmoving target and with the muzzle against her eyes, well... automatic hit for max critical damage.

Muro: In addition to the piloting skill check, you might want to make a listen check.
