  1. I, too, bought the black box in the late 70s. I enjoyed creating sub-sectors and characters. I understood that world/sector generation was the way to create the sandbox for actual play. I recall the heady way in which the slow unfolding of worlds and societies created that sandbox and I looked forward to seeing the adventures unfold as player's directed their characters through that world. Alas! LIFE happened (in a somewhat cruel and uncompromising manner) and I was swept away before I was able to get very far. I recently found evidence, in my boxes of old notebooks) that some adventu
  2. Yes, please. My copy is the GenCon preview from many years ago.
  3. "Turning" should still be considered, even if only as a vector change. Accelleration/decelleration would come into play as a means for changing vector. So, the mass of the vessel would factor into how quickly they can change orientation prior to changing vector. E.g., the Millennium Falcon can change vector much more quickly than an Imperial Cruiser, perhaps allowing it to escape the chase by "out turning" its adversary. So, I guess your "handling" stat covers that. So, never mind. Don't read this post.
  4. Another update: The new Chronicles of Future Earth will not be based upon any flavor or evolution of BRP. It will be Fate-based.
  5. I dropped my ballot off a few weeks ago. Now, more than ever, every American must vote.
  6. Thank you for the clarification! May you have much time to enjoy the fruits of your labor.
  7. "MoO"? Congratulations for making the needed changes and finding your way out of the bad times!
  8. Indeed. How important is the decision? Like combat, do you just blow the mooks off or build drama and tension through an extended combat. Is this the group deciding to stop to rest for a few moments or a point in the evolving story where the decision has a major effect on What Happens Next and calls for High Drama.
  9. I started to knee-jerk apologize for misreading/misunderstanding. Changed my mind. Does the week link drag down or does the strongest lift up? It is probably contextual, sometimes one, sometimes the other. Perhaps that is a contest in and of itself. Weakest vs Strongest to see which has the greatest influence in the moment.
  10. The lowest POW+INT would probably be better. Weakest link and all.
  11. Print on Demand via Drive Through RPG (dtrpg).
  12. Or as they look in Kult: Divnity Lost.
