Muses do have a cost listed however, (and morphs do cost CP). I think you're right in that it isn't a huge deal- but I'm curious what the right answer is.

comment What size is Savage Worlds Kerberos Club?
Just to confirm, I saw it my physically at FLGS yesterday and it is indeed a full sized book- not a little one like the Explorer Edition.

comment Techniques for allowing character defeat without character death
I haven't read it yet, but I've heard Altered Carbon by Richard K. Morgan deals with this as well. In the world of an RPG, I think prepared parties will be basically immortal, but PCs who don't have their house in order will still be at risk.

You make a good point about Paranoia. Usually I've found that game doesn't have much of an ongoing narrative to preserve, but it does work that way. The nice thing about Eclipse Phase (At least for my purposes) is that you can kill someone by destroying all the backups of their consciousness, so death is still a threat, but it becomes a really big deal.

comment Exalted Limit Breaks - How do I get them to occur more often?
@Cthos The details are buried under the descriptions of each flaw. Its still somewhat hard to keep track of all of them, but with some notes it is possible.

Thanks, I'll take a look. As an example it still works, we changed it right when 2nd Ed came out.

comment Rules modifications for Exalted Clinches
It always seemed a little implausible to me that many major antagonists would have artifacts that make them immune to clinches. Plus, my goal is to adjust it- I want them to be good, just not game breaking. Perfect defenses go a little ways towards solving that, but unfortunately it leaves non-dragon blooded NPCs with the option of only using perfect defense charms or with only using combos. On top of that many major antagonists (e.g. Behemoths, 3rd Circle Demons) don't have perfect defenses.
