Out of the Rough relates a variety of background reasons for using gems in a magical world.
Two of their number were already fallen, blood pouring from rents in their heavy plate armor. The demonologist facing them brandished a rapier black, and edged by red tongues of hellfire.
His chilling laugh echoed through the shadowy cave.
My blade was forged in the Pit itself! It can tear your paltry armor like parchment! The eldest knight stepped forward, touching the crucifix engraved on his breastplate and whispering a prayer.
His foe grinned, rapier poised to run him through. They allow someone to pick up and improve any otherwise-normal weapon an abil- ity that had previously been difficult to model. Weapons arent the only equipment that legend and fiction have portrayed as being enhanced by an individuals personal power, though. Consider the sorcerer who enchants his simple robes to be more resistant to flames, or the electrokinetic psi who prevents his metal armor from conducting a current, or the holy warrior who calls on the power of his god to extend the protection of his shield to his companions.

But because the roll always suffers the Bulk penalty — which cannot be bought off — this should remain in the realm of super-gunslingers. If not, try doubling Bulk penalties instead. So Quick Aim with a handgun will be at -2 to -6 mostly -4 , a carbine or SMG is -6 to -8, most full rifles are to That will force people to use smaller, handier weapons to claim that bonus, which may well impact the choice of weapons in a very realistic way.
I love the Accuracy and Aiming rolls, and seeing the players make meaningful tactical choices about aiming, and then get to roll dice. I Aim. I knew damn near instantly that this was something I wanted to see developed. After Doug got it into shape, I started using the rules in my campaign — and I have used them since.
I know that Jake Bernstein put in a lot of hours too, but I think I was the only one using it in a real game until Doug used it for Alien Menace. My gaming group, the Headhunters, actually full-on revolted when I tried to not use it for a campaign setting.
Since I run my group like a pirate democracy co-GM is chosen by the players, who then elects the GM , I basically had to backpedal. Overall, I love the rules. One particularly memorable moment in one of my campaigns involved my best friend, C.. He was playing a man out of time in modern day, and just nailing his role. At the climax of the story arc, the PCs had to stop an evil witch C.
Everything was going fine until several snipers began to fire on the PCs from the nearby lighthouse. In a moment of sheer badassitude, C.
