The player can apply to his attacks a -1 penalty (max Cha score) to add +1 to an Audience Pool if the attack hits (the penalty is the character trying to make the attack LOOK pretty instead of functional). This AP may grant bonuses based on which side have more points and quantity of points.
Some gladiators already start with some points in AP due to being audience favorites.
>>
>>66353270
I'd make grandstanding a deliberate action, personally. A skill check with a bonus depending on what sort of skill/action you use (if you use a standard action you get more benefit than from a move, than from a minor).
>>
>>66353270
Maybe give AP for bloodying an enemy or getting it to 0 hp, with a bonus if a daily or encounter power is used to take him out. A character that is dying at the end of the fight loses some, one that is still unbloodied gets a bonus. And critical hits, of course, get a bonus too.

Does someone know the exact abilities and skills gained by a faceless man?

The TV show illustrated this in an idiotic manner and i take it they are not super-man, but have some glamour or illusion magic along with some great acting, self-control and information gathering capacity. They also are skilled in assassinating but in direct combat may not be that exceptional.

Carlos is on record stating that the 2.0 Edition will be retro-compatible with the old system, but at the same time he also said he was completely revamping Psychic Powers, altering Ki Techniques, changing Magic, and switcching the dice system to a d10. So yes, it is a 2.0 instead of a 1.6.

I'm thinking of making a lycan blood hunter that uses polearms, so I was wondering what the best way to build him would be. Is it a good class? Is it too squishy to use melee? What is the best race for it from a gameplay/roleplay perspective?
13 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.

Blood hunting is the only way to run a blood economy. There's no way you're going to collect enough pure sacrifices to make a difference from random events or slave markets. If you want demons and vampires in your armies, or to throw horrors at your enemies, then you've got to get plenty of blood hunters and set them to work. I mean dozens and dozens of them rounding up every virgin in the country.

If you only want to have items, ie Blood Stones or Flesh-Eaters, then you can kinda make it work without very many hunters.

Magic is basically cheating.
If you employ magic, you're saying "I can't solve the challenge with my wit, resolve or grit, I need a whole spellbook of "Get me out of jail for free" cards."

It is (sometimes) different in-universe, true, where magic may take a lot of effort to learn and use, but from players' end magic is basically an admission of impotence.

Any creative player who achieves mediocre results with a clever ploy, rube goldberg design, or sheer stubbornness is better than a hundred players who achieve great results by using magic.

This was my experience. Had tons of fun playing through the deck while plastered drunk a few times. Got stale after that. The hardest part is that I have other friends who are new to the game and think it's the hottest shit, so explaining to them that I'm terminally bored of the game is difficult

I'm not, but I have just had super robots turn up in a superhero game alongside an Ultraman style giant hero (who suplexed a kaiju into the ocean). But now it's become a Holy Grail War.

I'm also "playing" solitaire artsy letter writing/journaling games with a robot theme
