comment Cortex rules: how to handle complications
No, that's separate too. The question is talking about the type that show up in Smallville (in that case called stress). Cortex Plus is pretty liberal in terms of renaming things, so in talking about the question specifically, Leverage doesn't have anything that matches it.

comment After Essentials, what material do I need?
You wouldn't need to bring a laptop to the table, you could just do everything on DDI for prep and print out what you need for the game.

Not really, a minus die doesn't fit with the roll & keep system that Cortex uses, and if you have it up at around -d10 or something like that, you could be turning up with a total negative result even without otherwise rolling 1s.

I meant in the sense of acquiring a dX complication. It's just something that gets narrated in later.

comment What kind of rulings predated ability or skill checks in old school D&D?
RPG.net disabled searching over a year ago, it would take ages for me to find. If I know the thread title I can do a site search on bing to pull stuff up, but if I'm doing a search for a username it's pointless as it doesn't seem to be indexed on any of the search engines.

comment How to model an absolute condition in Fate?
@Extrakun - I think that would make sense, I actually wasn't sure how to handle negative ones, but that should work. @Jadasc - I don't have the time to look through everything right now, sorry. I'll update my answer if I find it.

comment Are there any 4E Mega-Dungeons out there?
There's much less third party support for 4e, if you don't see it listed on WotC's site, it probably doesn't exist.

comment Is there a tool to make custom character sheets?
The reason I like ClarisWorks is that it's so simple. It's not powerful, but there wasn't anything like layers to work with, so whatever tool I was using it was like ink/graphite on paper. It was easy to understand. I'm gonna have to look into this Windows version.

comment How many people does it take to steal a Star Destroyer?
Good question, I think looking at a Star Wars technical manual might be enlightening. See how it describes the Star Destroyer in more detail. It might be that without maintenance it would just stop flying after a while, or that steering would be hard, or perhaps going into hyperspace would be highly dangerous.

comment How is DriveThruRPG's Print on Demand Quality?
Do you have any idea if they have a different printer outside the US?

comment Which skills can be used for a Monster Knowledge Check when multiple keywords are involved?
I think this makes the most sense. You know different things based on different skills. It also allows the DM to spread it out over a couple party members, depending on who has the highest check for each skill.

comment From Serenity through Battlestar Galactica to the Stand-Alone Rules for Cortex, what has been changed?
It's not different enough to be interesting. Only the Cortex Plus games actually had something mechanically noteworthy.

Would probably help things. Supernatural is also in that same class of regular Cortex.

Relationship is only a factor in Smallville, not Leverage.

comment 1 GM and 1 Player games and game systems?
Beast Hunters didn't work out for me either.

comment Suggestions for decreasing metagaming and increasing player immersion?
Expecting people not to metagame is pointless. What you need to do is direct metagaming to helping the game experience you want, rather than hindering it.

If everyone does it, you benefit from other people acting in character.

Getting in character without being influenced by unrealistic XP rewards is immersive roleplaying
