I like big books and I cannot lie.

comment Are there any penalties for wearing armor all the time?
Are "realism" and "military history" appropriate for DnD 5E rule questions now?

comment Does Pathfinder significantly fix known problems with the Monk class?
The upcoming Brawler is also a surprisingly good candidate. It is the first time I played an unarmed character that actually felt dangerous - I even used one as a single Boss NPC and almost caused a TPK

comment How to respond to “stress tracks / narrative consequences are arbitrary”?
I agree that I actually wouldn't have given a consequence in that situation; the character is bleeding but it will be fine and forgotten by the next scene

comment What is the new Magician's Way?
I haven't read the book yet, unfortunately, but that quote seems to mean that you can learn non-adept metamagic abilities, not just have them all for free

comment Is there any good reason not to kick people?
I was actually hoping for some kind of errata, adding a disadvantage or something to the maneuver (for example making the character easier to hit until his next action or something)

Actually Boxing says - as for every other martial art with the same kind of advantage - "+1 DV on Unarmed Attacks", so it technically applies to every kind of attack. We could argue that boxers don't kick (legit) argument, but then 1 - we enter the realm of arguing what Martial Art can do what, and that's very subjective, and 2 - it would make Boxing quite a bad martial art considering that as written, Kick Attack is such a great maneuver (a bonus with absolutely no disadvantage, unlike every other maneuvers).

Hmmm... I don't see how that's right actually. Kick Attack gives the same bonus (+1 Reach) no matters what martial art the character does, it stacks with Martial Arts advantages, and it is available to every martial art. Technically, a boxer using Kick Attack is just straight better than a boxer who doesn't. We could argue that from a roleplaying perspective a boxer should not be able to use Kick Attacks, but that was not my question.

comment How many shifts are needed to take out a character with a single blow?
+1 for a Fate answer that is not "You don't understand Fate this is not how it works"

comment How do I rein in a character's backstory without discouraging the player?
I've always thought of a vendetta as somewhat reciprocal. Can you have a vendetta against someone who have no idea you even exist?
