The biggest thing that your players seem to be forgeting is that they have to give the perps a chance to surrender before they can open fire. Also, they have to take every available opportunity to bring perps in alive - too many dead perps is cause for SJS involvement (after all Rico Dredd was going...

What I did for the Grey Crystal Ring & Psychic Ring was to give them some Willpower & access to MindShield/Mindblast and Psishield/Psiblast. It reproduces the fact that they were both psychic amplifiers and, since Mindblast gave +2CS in the books, it more accurately reproduces the effect. If you thi...

We have a house rule for massive damage - Fort save = Damage taken.
As for damage, we have used an extra die as well, and it worked well for the d20 games.

Ranged combat uses the basic combat skill, and adds DEX mod instead of STR mod.

I'm away from my rulebooks at the moment, but in the section on psychic combat, there is a formula for the combat skill - I think it's class level (all classes that grant psychic combat) + CHA mod.

I think that the Vordaks and the like are immune to the standard powers of Mindblast, but are still vulnerable to pyschic combat.

ie. They are immune to Distraction, Force of personality, Psychic Lash, Dagger of the Mind and Spiritshreik.

Re: Vordaks

What does the "good" mean in the Vordak special quality (p. 282): Damage Reduction 5/magic or good. Also, does Magic Resistance/Immunity also work against psychic combat? Thanks! The good means that the damage reduction can be bypassed by a magic weapon or a good-aligned weapon. And magic resistanc...

Re: Threatened Areas, Opportunity Attacks, Touch Attacks

What about attacks of opportunity or AOOs? Since AOOs stem from the concept of 'threatened areas,' are there no AOOs in Lone Wolf? This is a bit confusing since the description for the Concentration skill mentions AOOs (p. 88); but, again, there is no mention of AOOs in the Combat chapter. Can some...

The way I am using this in my game is that it takes your move action every round to keep the distraction up - it means that the ability is less useful at the higher levels, but with the other psi powers being able to be used with a full attack, that won't really matter to the PC's.

I am about halfway through running the Awakening, and there is more player choice in the senario, but I may have to railroad them slightly to get them onto the next Prog - they missed out on looking up some information at the end of Prog 5. All in all, if you have a psi in the party, you definately ...

There was a Special Item in Dawn of the Drawgons called the Sunstone - this was made to destroy active Shadow Gates.

I think that there is also an item called the Sunstone in Southern Magnamund, created by Shasarak - have to check my books on that.

The Magnakai disciplines do not state that they provide an increase to the saves. Since the text doesn't, I can safely assume that it means that they don't provide any bonuses. Think about it - the Kai has all saves at +9 at level 20, without the +5 bonuses (which takes them to +13 - more than any o...

Scanned maps

EternalKnight - the maps are their way to you as I type.

Book 24 just slightly expands the map of book 6, and book 25 slightly expands book 10. Book 27 & 28 have the same map.

I've got the books & a scanner, so I'll try to scan them for you. I'll probably have to email them to you, since I don't have a website to upload them to.
I should have them ready for Monday.

Most likely if someone were to republish the entire Lone Wolf Series, I would buy them all, even though i already own upto book #23.

Who else would do the same?
I'd do the same, even though I've got the lot. :D

I don't have my books to hand, but don't Bor dwarves get craft(alchemy) as a class skill as a racial ability - that would explain the error.
