This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Is there a way to make the cards that were available for the previous edition work with this one?

Familiars from Ganesha Games.
Buggin' from Deep7.
Mausritter: Sword-and-Whiskers Role Playing from Losing Games.

Even if you give the system a pass, the Pitford and Crossroads Region sourcebooks give great maps and flavor for use in any of those other mutant PA games. That's what I've done with it.

Me too. I picked those two books up.

You could also have an inverse to this in some cultures, where someone is so low in status that you would never address them by name because it is unimportant to know.

We have a narcissistic operator at work who does this... claims to keep forgetting your name if you're below his standing. I'd report the fucker if he pulled that on me.

WTF are sensitivity readers? How does one actually make a career out of that? What kind of education does it require?

Lol shouldn't this thread be in Other Games?

Not sure if serious?

I also had to look him up. I had no idea who he was.

If I recall my math correctly, a quick estimate using 5+ as a success would mean that:

1 die = 33%
2 dice = 56%
3 dice = 70%
4 dice = 80%
5 dice = 87%

That's without pushing, which is beyond my ability to figure out atm.

I'd personally assume people would not be pushing their rolls most of the time.

The average dice pool of a starting MYZ character would be what, two or three dice? If so, then I like this probability spread better and I may well implement this fix when running it.

Quote from: Gagarth;1130212
Not sure about the rest but the Alien game has a very high rate unless you are ramped up with stress.

Now I'm curious how the Alien game differs from Mutant: Year Zero. Chances of success in MYZ do seem a bit low. If a 5 would also count as a success, how much would that change things up? That would be an easy fix.

So Free League is becoming like Modipheus picking up rpgs lines here and there. I wish them the best of luck though no one I know in my area plays Twilight 2000 anymore. Anyone know what system it will use?

Mutant Year Zero-based.

Quote from: lordmalachdrim;1129919
That's why you have the ability to do x (varies from setting to setting) allowing you to succeed but giving the GM some sort of narrative points to use against the group.

Mutant Year Zero doesn't have any of this. Coriolis does. Not sure about the other MYZ games.

Quote from: HappyDaze;1129907
I have Coriolis. Same general system even if the specifics differ a bit. The failure rate seems very, very high and the game is made to ensure you're not really good at much of anything (even your "thing").

I've seen people claim the exact opposite as well. It's time someone probability-savvy showed us the raw data so we can know who's right.

Not familiar with this myself but I've read good things about it:

I think I get what you are showing with the art.  I too would favor something that actually looks frightening.  But any company large enough to out-market Chaosium will be similarly averse to being too edgy with either artwork or themes in general.

Older CoC books at times had artwork that was less videogamey/cartoony and "adventurous fun" than seems to be the norm for 7E.

Quote from: tenbones;1126084
It's "gaming" for people that don't actually game.
So the same as watching sports is for most people.

Things appear to be getting worse for Adam "I'm a male feminist and people I call misogynists should be blacklisted" Koebel!
Oh my god, lol.

Quote from: RPGPundit;1125651
Not just a supporter/promoter, it appears Fox had a business dealing with some capacity with Koebel, as an "influencer" to run his games.

First, hilarious that Fox needs to pay people to run his game.

Second, funny how everyone who's had a Metoo-esque scandal in the hobby is a business associate of Fox, huh? He was working with Zak S too.
Didn't you make some prediction as to Fox himself getting involved in some sort of scandal?

Quote from: Almost_Useless;1125685
This sure seems like a non-apology.

Why is it so hard to admit when you screw up?  "I thought everyone was on-board with what we were doing.  I read it wrong.  Bottom line:  I completely f'd up and I'm sorry."  Reasonable people would be fine with that and you'd never satisfy the rest anyway.

Straight-up admitting they made a mistake and they're sorry is impossible for the narcissistically-inclined. If things get really bad there will usually be some kind of sob story where they play the victim.
