Darth Xaos: I'll take a look at some point. Strigus might be interested in working on the Zakuul Master Paths since he'll be heading up the EE. I'm off for now though, see ya later, mate.

Legionnaire: About the only thing that's off is sword and shield instead of two swords.
Mar 16, 2019 1:17:01 GMT
Legionnaire: I'm probably going to hold off until soft-launch to develop the Prestige Classes I think. Ditto Knight of Zakuul's Master Paths. Actually if you haven't already, read Knight of Zakuul and just try to tell me it doesn't fit Lucifer to a T.
Mar 16, 2019 1:16:46 GMT
Legionnaire: I'll run through things correcting that at some stage then.
Mar 16, 2019 1:14:03 GMT
Darth Xaos: It'll be less potentially confusing even if it runs on a flat value.
Mar 16, 2019 1:12:54 GMT
Darth Xaos: I still say call it "save".
Mar 16, 2019 1:12:31 GMT
Legionnaire: Yeah it does in this case.
Mar 16, 2019 1:11:23 GMT
Darth Xaos: Oh, yeah, does defense use a flat value?
Mar 16, 2019 1:10:51 GMT
Legionnaire: I got the sense that normally when you save you roll instead of a flat value?
Mar 16, 2019 1:08:42 GMT
Darth Xaos: I have no idea why Saga edition made that change in the first place.
Mar 16, 2019 1:08:16 GMT
Darth Xaos: I also think we should change the term "defense" to "save." Even I scratch my head a little when I see "Will Defence," etc.
Mar 16, 2019 1:08:00 GMT
Legionnaire: I think that's a good idea. For the time being everything's just 'per encounter' but long/short rest can be an upgrade. My hope is that we'll keep tweaking the system and shifting things so that it's more streamlined and less of the chimera it is now.
Mar 16, 2019 1:06:03 GMT
Darth Xaos: Speaking of good 5e changes, we might consider adopting the long rest/short rest paradigm for the new system. I think it would serve us better than "day" as a measurement of ability refresh since we're a sci-fi setting.
Mar 16, 2019 1:04:07 GMT
Legionnaire: I tried to shunt as much advantage and disadvantage into here as was reasonably possible mainly for that reason. There's enough going on as is.
Mar 16, 2019 0:58:57 GMT
Darth Xaos: Most definitely. That plus proficiency/non-proficiency replacing ranks vastly simplified and streamlined the 3e model.
Mar 16, 2019 0:48:40 GMT
Legionnaire: I love advantage and disadvantage, so much. It's such a genius idea, vastly better than "take +5/-5" etc.
Mar 16, 2019 0:46:56 GMT
Darth Xaos: Yeah, I've had a hard time getting 5e play time since it came out too. Which is too bad, because it's very possibly the best tabletop RP system ever made.
