  1. Actor, Stage and Radio, is in the pulp book.
  2. I'd say it depends on the situation and how stressful it is. In your example of the skull, if the skull is floating around and comes at them in a threatening manner, it may call for another roll but only lose 1 point if they fail. Its a bit weird but yeah, you're kind of ready for it. If it's a hideous bloated corpse that is moving or a giant monster that is aggressive, coming back to it at a later point would call for another roll because its such an even greater unsettling experience than a floating skull.
  3. Awesome. Good spot, thanks for that. I don't have the PDF of the rulebook so couldn't search for it and didn't think of looking for the conversion rules.
  4. As we're on a Dark Ages theme, one of the life events is 'Family crops failed: +10 Spot Hidden, –5 Conceal' What is conceal? Its not a skill listed on the sheet so should it be Stealth?
  5. I played a couple of games of Alien at the weekend and its very simple, theres only a handful of stats, you just need plenty of D6s. The rulebook is huge and looks imposing but once you get into it most of the book is background material. The Cinematic oneshot in the back is a great intro to the system.
  6. You could probably adapt a few modern era scenarios to a sci-fi theme as well. The Deralict from petersen's abominations could work with a bit of a twist around. Make the crew of the ship a luxury space yacht or a tug and tweak the monster a little.
  7. I've got something similar with one of my players at the moment. He has Psychometry so tries to use it everywhere to figure out whats going on with items and places so what I do now is hit him with san losses when he over uses it. I see it as him spending too much time on the psychic plane and getting hooked to it. You could do something similar where the character starts to suffer from over use of his power and it drains his POW or SAN from abuse. Think of it as how drugs affect the body, over use causes some serious side effects.
  8. No. For me its because, as you spend luck, the target moves as well. For example, the PC rolls a 54 and has a luck of 50. If he spends 4 luck, he now has 46 luck point but hes modifed the dice roll to 50 so its still a fail.
  9. Provided you're using Acrobat, the half and 5th numbers should fill in automatically as you add numbers to the main light blue boxes. Also other areas should autofill like your HP, SAN and MP.
  10. no worries. Carter is a fairly well known name in Egyptology but only in terms of finding the tomb. I had to look up the event the hand out talked about myself to see what it was.
  11. Howard Carter is the archeologist who found the tomb of Tutankhamun. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Howard_Carter The Sakkara incident was something he was involved in before he discovered the tomb and the occult thing is something to spice up the historical event to tie to the campaign. https://mcclungmuseum.utk.edu/2008/01/01/tomb-discovery/
  12. My pleasure. If you ever need another map putting together, let me know. I'll see if I can help out.
  13. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1vhxbbhN29HSM9IWHiXmwG9KPcnVsdrA5/view?usp=sharing Thats the ai file. you may also need the paper texture the ai file links to: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1lwbaICTNw8IT9tT38fRjYKiq1S0ISfX6/view?usp=sharing You'll need a free font called Warm showers which is here: https://www.dafont.com/warmshowers.font
  14. the two maps are attached. The illustrator file is 63mb and ai files can't be uploaded on here so I'll have to pop that into some online storage place.
