I am an avid RP and tabletop gamer, currently designing a tabletop skirmish game of my own. It is a hobby of mine to sit down with a core book for a game and decipher its system.

Downvote removed after further consideration. Definitely have to agree with SevenSideDie about being "in the trenches" for full functionality. Boot Camp is a lot different than the front lines.

comment Did piracy problems bring down White Wolf?
DFRPG also offered free PDF with preorder so some of those numbers are null.

Downvote (recant pending). You explain that you're about to do a paper but pretty much asked for our answers to write it for you.

comment Does the War Domain grant Improved Unarmed Strike when given by a god who favors Unarmed Strikes?
As a cherry on top. But listing the Gods who have it does not inherently answer the core question in this scenario.

I would have made this same exact answer if I didn't read first.

I would have to say that my ability to sample a book is critical to my want to buy it. It's a good half hour drive to the nearest shop so I have to order online (where I can't preview) or waste a trip for something that might not be there. Plus I can't just drop $40 every time a book comes out and take the risk that it's bad. If I like something I try first, I make a point to buy the official release when I reasonably can.

+1 for the citation, but any campaign can simply add a deity with an unarmed favor.

comment How does a mount interact with its rider in regards to Reflex saves?
I would go with the rolls being separate. The mount could jink in a way that avoids danger for itself but not for the rider.

That seems to sync up with Simon Gill's answer about the Mantis Island being 45mi. Thank you.

That could turn out to be very useful, actually. Do you happen to know of anywhere it lists travel times?
