Inspiration and a few questions

It looks like the Inspiration (pg 209) power replaced the Enhanced Awareness power of the old book (pg 155). Can the Boon dice be used to counter a bane dice the Gm has announced? For extended actions taking a long time can the boon dice be used and affect the entire process? Can the power be used t...

Re: Psionic Question

Well a Psion Rogue: Thief (pg 29 of Psion Book) could also take the Psionic Attack Talent. So could a Mind Stealer. It just depends on how violent and or willing to inflict death pain or paralysis a player is. A thief may not want to attract attention and focus on abilities like Glamour, or he or sh...

Re: Psionic Question

Well the Psionic Corsair (Psion book pg 29) has the stated aim of piracy and commerce raiding and subduing others quickly without the need for weapons. The character is a pirate (Pirates of Drinax campaign). The psionic aspect is a hidden aspect, as I mentioned the emphasis is on stealth and espiona...

Re: Psionic Question

Out of Body Power (pg 64-65) is invisible to normal sight but aura aware psions can see the aura of the OBE Psion (the aura travels with the psyche). So no body to shoot at, it is invisible. The projected awareness is able to travel up to 50,000 km instantly (max Telepathy range)if desired and the P...

Re: Psionic Question

Shawn: I am using Mind Blast from the Advanced Talent Psionic Attack, page 66 of Psion Book for the example. Any Psionic Attack has the same cost listed (variable plus range) Psionic Attack uses the Telepathic range chart on page 55 of the same book. Atpollard: Nice analogy. That clears things up fo...

Re: Psionic Question

Well Telekinesis uses a different column on the chart and maxes out at 250 metres. The Telepathy column maxes out at 50,000 km.

Re: Psionic Question

Shawn: Range for Psionic Attack, and I am thinking Mind Blast in this case. although all Psionic attack powers mention the same thing: Cost is variable, plus range. Range is based on Telepathy table on page 55 of the Psionic Book, so I do not know why the attack would be considered unarmed. What do ...

Psionic Question

Questions for the Psionic folks. Assume a Psionic person uses Out of Body Experience and has their consciousness travel to a location to scout it out. They see their nemesis/target alone in a room. If the psionic also has the power of Psionic Attack, do they use the distance from their consciousness...

Re: Recruiting in Drinax Campaign

Well with the release of adventure 9 the person in charge of boarding actions wants nothing to do with any skyguard recruits. They may have high tech gear but they are 'foppish and unworthy of combat' (paraphrased and cleaned up from his rant) My group is going the trade and diplomacy route, but mil...

Recruiting in Drinax Campaign

Just looking for advice from the hivemind here. My players are going to be ramping up their crewing needs as they hire/coopt/ally with pirate groups and systems. They will need a source of pilots, engineers, mechanics and marines to ramp up their piracy efforts. Where did you have your players recru...

Pirates of Drinax: Politics and Trade version

Spoiler Alert obviously Has anyone else looked at the trade deal that could be negotiated in The Demon's Eye Adventure, or have I spent way too much time looking at this? :shock: The Tech World offer in the Drinax adventure has a list of trade goods that Tech World wants a cheap supply of. Ignoring ...

Cryo berth: Whatever mission they are on requires them to be transported secretly via cryoberth. When they wake up X amount of time has passed and they are on a recovery ship. Everything they knew is gone and they are in a different sector. Cryo storage only costs 100 credits a month, it is incredib...

Re: Shore Leave (and crew salaries) and Cabin Fever

If the ship has Luxuries on board these facilities might be better then any available on lower tech planets. It may pay to install the latest holo suite and buy the specialty vid discs to add to the library.

Re: Hard Times 1129 Continued

Will they be able to repair the ship? Pay the crew? Is the tech base gone? are factories to build spare parts and tools still around? Finding an advanced ship is great until the turbo encabulator throws a cardinal grammeter and you need a new supernative whenal sprocket https://www.youtube.com/watch...

Re: Atsreoid cicuit ship

Cycling asteroids were described in Marshall Savage's Colonizing the galaxy in 8 easy steps. You could easily lift a few adventure ideas from that chapter. Catapult launchers may be replaced by 1 g ships, but hollowing out the metals or volatiles for shipping in-system is a good money maker. Look up...
