For my part, I'm rather disapointed that JMS won't be involved in those novels, making them non-canonical. Hear this excerpt from jmsnews.com : ... I have, subsequently, washed my hands of the Mongoose books. I haven't seen anything, don't know what they're doing, so sure as hell it ain't canonical....

Well put ShadowScout! I replied without having seen your post, and found you address the issue more adequately... Frankly, if the GM; is flexible enough, he can ditch "balance" easily, even in point-driven systems. I saw campaigns work where the PC's had different point values all over the board - a...

Thanks Paddy for the comments. I can sense you're not a fan of GURPS... Points construction systems for characters rarely work because they are so heavily focussed on "balance". Mmmm, I always thought it was the other way around. Class systems usually gives "upgrades" to characters at pre-determined...

Thoughts on telepaths

I just came along that quote from the GURPS FAQ : Doesn't it makes role-playing any psi prohibitive point-wise if one were to run, say, a Babylon 5 campaign? Because they're far more powerful than everyone else in *game* terms, even if they don't dominate the show in *dramatic* terms. Unfortunately ...

Hi Hoog, I ran that scenario a few months back in the same context (i.e. we were all newbies). We had the same comments overall and we all found it a little unsettling albeit exhilarating. It was a liberating experience as we could let go of all the usual conventions of RPGs and were even forced to ...

I know, but in my house rule, every healing ability can be used on others as long as you pay the usual cost in Endurance or Willpower.

A variant could be that the cost is doubledsince it requires more energy. I'll have to playtest before being sure, though.

Totally agree with the altruistic nature of healing.

Yeah, all in all a great offering and easy to follow up with "Trouble in Tanoren"* and "Blood Moon Rising", as they all take place in the same region (more or less). With those three, you could entertain your band of players for many sessions. I like the players handouts (wish they could be put on t...

However, in comparison with the other basic classes, I think it brings some disbalance in the game. Yes, but in this case disbalance is a good thing as it fits with what was shown in the serie and the novels. Just as the Telepaths and the Ancients; they must be fearsome to have any impact. It would...

While I think this will be a cool product I'll probably pass on it for awhile because it would of limited use in my current campaign. I'm in the same boat here.

I concur with Xex, I was surprised how low level the Council of 12 were.
