comment How does d20 Modern handle having someone at gunpoint?
I don't disagree with you--that certainly would be one way of modelling the situation. However, surprise is a pretty specific situation. Certainly IRL, someone could walk into a room, and I would have heard them coming--thus I'm not unaware--but then discover that they have a gun. So in d20 terms I wouldn't be surprised, but I would be at gunpoint.

comment What happens when an Extra is Incapacitated but survives?
No need to be rude. It's not rules lawyering to want understand how the designer intended his game to be played.

I got to the NHL reference and thought "this poster has GOT to be Canadian" and you are!

comment Pre-modern farming: What percent of the population is in agriculture?
A Magical Medieval Society is what you want. It has exactly what you're looking for, plus as a bonus, rules for running manors and other medieval industries.

Sorry if I'm belaboring the point, but why is the Incapacitation sidebar irrelevant to Extras?

comment What happens when an Extra is Incapacitated but survives?
I agree with Dr Rotwang that what you're saying is certainly in the spirit of the rules for Extras, but it does ignore the Aftermath section of SW:EX. This creates a problem for me (albeit a small one) because I like to let the dice decide--I enjoy emergent stories best.

comment What happens when an Extra is Incapacitated but survives?
The Aftermath section describes survivors as Incapacitated, so I figured the text on p76 about Incapacitated characters applied. That section refers to the table on the previous page--which refers to "Heroes" in its text. Is "Hero" used in SW to refer to Wild Cards exclusively?

So I rolled Vigor after the fight, per the Aftermath rules, they succeeded and were Incapacitated. That meant a roll on the Injury table, right?

Right, that note is exactly why I assume that they are the human norm unless they're special in some way. But that's also why I needed to know what the norm is!

comment What is the recent edition history for Savage Worlds and major differences between them?
Great answer! And your footnote brings up a new question: the player with SW experience I mentioned has the Solomon Kane book--is it out-of-date/incompatible compared to the SW:EX or have there been updates to it?

comment What Roleplaying Games Come/Came With a Video?
I played DragonStrike last week and can confirm it came with a VHS tape about the game. It sure wasn't a tutorial though... more like a tv show inspired by the game. A terrible, terrible tv show. But hilarious now!

comment How can I cut short a doomed fight?
Having the other players play the opponents is a great idea. Nobody is bored, Mr Lone Wolf gets his solo combat, and if he dies the blood isn't on your hands. :)

Upvoted for #4! Simple, obvious and yet it never occurred to me.
