Re: Need some spark for Deus Vult

Yeah I have. Remember playing through it and devilishly buying the off to see how we did! I really enjoyed it, felt like James bond at the auction! (a religiously fanatic one who wasn't quite as charming) Glad to hear there is something else in the queue, I will be keeping an eye open for it. Any cl...

Re: Need some spark for Deus Vult

Yeah, we tried the let it die and run other things, and have been running other things for a while now. The reason we have been looking to restart it is it is just like an itch. Always in the back of our minds, oh remember that deus vult campaign, that was awesome, maybe we can get back to it someti...

Need some spark for Deus Vult

Well I don't, but our GM does. We have been waiting for him to restart it for a while, alas he has had difficulty killing off our characters. We have gone through his monsters and got all the coll tools and equipment, and he seems to be having difficulty coming up with new things. he has been runnin...

I have been looking to get into a game of traveller and this book may just be the push I need to see if I can find a game, or convince my current group to give it a whirl.

I heard that the second half of the hoffman adventure was released, but for the life of me can't find it. If I have not been lied too, can someone please point a fellow in the right direction?

I've been playing a game of dus vult, and just noticed the balll and chain (the special one that can be loaded with nasty gasses) If you use CM entangle and get the head chest or stomach, that is minues 20%, you can then make a trip attempt, leaving them at another 20%, and they can't attack next ro...

I like the minus 20 off balance thing...could lead to some wierdness though (like if you aren't that good with mace and dagger, and when using just the dagger, you are end up with a worse ability than just a basic dagger skill you start off with, easily resolved with a capping at off hand can't get ...

And another awkward question. Say you had mace and dagger at 90...so that means using a dagger alone you have dagger as 90... Now say you want to try a ball and chain out, so you go for ball and chain and dagger. Ball and chain starts at basic skill BUT do any attacks with your dagger still get reso...

So never lead with a choose location sounds like a good idea (unless their armour really sucks in one location) better off doing a better manouvre for an advantage, and continuing to hit the spot that you randomnly hit afterwards

Yeah, choose location can be outshon at times. I was recently trying to fight this rather powerful monster, which didn't bother parrying most attacks as it had so much health it didn't need to. It did 1d6 + 1d20 damage and could impale, and had 4 combat manouvres. I was burning hero points to keep u...

So does that mean we will have to wait till 2012 to see the next half of that deus vult hoffman quest? Cos our GM is running through the first bit and I would be sorely dissapointed if we had to stop due to the second half of it not coming through.

Aside from runequest 2 core rule book, and the deus vult book, you wouldn't need anything else. Hopefully come summer we may need some other add on books made by the lovely mongoose chaps to expand on our Deus Vult goodness.

Well a mace has a short reach, and a medium size, so that is another one that you can use to sneak in, parrying to take in half damage, and attack the other bloke who can't parry. Would work great on people with longswords (size L, reach L) against mace (size m, reach s) and dirk (size s (m for parr...

Or even closing in with a dagger in one hand and a medium weapon in the other. The medium weapon can parry, and the enemy can parry, but he can't parry your dagger attack if you close in and it's two sizes smaller. (extra advantage for two weapon wielding)

How about closing with a dirk? It is a small weapon that parries as if it were medium. So if someone has a large weapon you can slose in, parry for half damage, and he can't parry anything!

Or have I read the rules for dirks wrong?

(still wouldn't work against bigger two handed weapons)
