Jello: post your own reply for Beltane at Balmorra. I'm not your mother and he's not my NPC. I've been avoiding using him so you could use him against my Senator Cantrell character. It's your planet, you don't need an invitation to address me or their Senate. Jeez..... //rolleyes..... I'm getting especially tired of people changing these Force powers around to suit themselves. It really screws with the Force-based characters who don't seem to have much to say in here at all. Well I'm sick of it. As the longest standing Force-based PC, it screws with me especially. A definition of powers is great. Very handy. Don't get me wrong. But a definition of powers as used in this game should be the norm. Not a definition of powers as played in an average WEG RPG. It's is simply unfair to change the nature of powers which, for a long time now, have stood and not been called for GMing. To change things simply to put characters on a more equal standing when some of us have worked bloody hard to get where are is utterly ludicrous. How about we decide it's better for the game if NR becomes an anarchic state? DS5: Your character is out of a job. Deal with it. Work around it. How about we decide that the Vong worldships are actually quite fragile? Yomin: Your character's fleets will be wiped in every space battle they face. Deal with it. Work around. How about we decide that the Falleen actually can't live in oxygen-rich environments? P-o-T: Better get Lavos a breath mask. Deal with it. How about we decide that a cetain Grand Admiral never recovered from the massive wounds he suffered in an asassination attampt and is a quadraplegic mute? Jello: Work around it. Deal with it. Sure, all extreme examples but you get the idea. When you change things that are intrinsic to a character's development and attitude, you have to change the entire character to deal with it. I'd really appreciate some consistency on GM calls around here. I dig playing this game but it seems like playing fairly is more than half th battle, most of which takes place out of the game thread.
