    STARFARER 2250

    I went ahead and bought the damn thing. It is set in the Starguard miniatures universe, which I do not know. You are rebuying the quick start rules for the BGB, so buyer beware. It is basically a post Star Wars space opera universe, with a collection of weapons and eqipuipment included. Have to read more in-depth to rate it further...

    STARFARER 2250

    This pdf just popped up on DrivethruRPG. The pdf is supposed to be used by BRP. But what BRP do they mean? The Big Gold Book is the obvious choice. What is the deal here?

    Figuring out "Scanners" type powers

    Good choice. Also try a copy of GURPS Psionics 3e. Fourth edition does not have a Psionics tome. I think it is all combined into powers...

    Figuring out "Scanners" type powers

    Unless you just want to use the SCANNERS name to run a psychic game. In that case ignore my constant rambling and probably consult either PSIONICS:THE NEXT STAGE OF HUMAN EVOLUTION by End Transmission Games or THE 13TH LETTER by some Irish company (I believe). They are both pretty great games on the subject.

    Figuring out "Scanners" type powers

    To be honest the only powers available in the BGB are Mental Blast, Mental Control, Mental Shield and Telepathy. Mental Shield I kind of question because a person could give a shot of ephemerol to the scanner and temporarily dampen his powers. The GM also would have to come up with a way that both Mental Blast, Mind Control and Telepathy could also work on computers. Also we need some kind of Possesion ability that will allow a scanner to take over another person entirely — kind of like the sleeves used in ALTERED CARBON but without a stack if you have seen that show.

    Figuring out "Scanners" type powers

    To do SCANNERS justice, you have to figure out how you would handle the drug EPHEMEROL. The drug created the scanner from birth. Without the drug, the world becomes very hard to live in due to the bombardment of other people’s thoughts. But the drug can also be used to dampen a Scanners power to nothing. interseting problem. Will have to think on it...

    Chaosium's Latest Statement on BRP

    "How Chaosium decides to handle things is largely beside the point." Quoted a second time for emphasis.
