comment Is there any good reason not to kick people?
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).

comment Is there any good reason not to kick people?
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?

comment How to communicate with your summons?
@SevenSidedDie I would argue that RAW supersedes the normal English meaning :) Attack, run, feat, all mean something in English, but something different (or rather, more specific) in the context of Pathfinder. Hence the tendency/need to check whether a common English word is defined in the context of RAW or not

comment How to design battle between characters of different scales (e.g. mecha vs. infantry)?
@monsterfurby Well, a -1/+1 makes a small difference but not that much yeah. A -2/+2 starts becoming brutal, which is how I wanted it to be :) Anyway, I think the best would be to try it in your games and tell us how it worked

comment How can I GM and play a PC without spoiling the fun?
@SevenSidedDie Ah, indeed... This actually makes the whole answer irrelevant, yes. I will think of a way to reformulate it (any advice about how to do it is appreciated!).
