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.

comment Decking in combat seems useless. Have we missed something?
I edited my answer a bit. Still thumbing matrix actions for more specifics.

Agreed entirely, but I'm just here to say how it's done.

comment Do advantages in Fate Core just “wear off?”
It is the closest FATE based book I had. I'm diving into my archives to find the right term, but the mechanic is still sound

comment Can a sleeping character Hide?
Strictly speaking, no which is why I have a section for as close to the RAW as possible. Conceal % was just a way to make the math less crunchy, making a spot check more or less a ranged touch attack.

comment Can a sleeping character Hide?
Hiding in a burlap sack is invisible but still hittable even if by accident. If you're completely behind a partition wall it's 100% concealment from the wrong angle.

To the downvote: Why?

comment What good are Data Sprites?
My mistake. Ultimately, the bottom line is that everything a Courier does "touches" a file and can be tr5aced back to the courier. A Data Sprite is incognito unless someone is looking for a watermark, and even then the source is subject to the message.

comment What can I do to prevent a player from breaking the game?
To the downvote, could you at least explain why?

comment Which class should my “fallen” paladin change to?
Isn't that class outside of the approved materials?

Doesn't the alignment restriction make this an issue though?

comment Which class should my “fallen” paladin change to?
-1 because he specifically said he will be True Neutral with no religion. Avenger is a CG class, comes from an unapproved source, and still requires faith (as an alternate Paladin build)

comment Do other vampires feel pleasure for being bitten (kissed)?
I believe if you're not a kindred, you need a Willpower 9+ to resist. The furballs just have a larger blood pool so something interceding has a greater chance to do something.

comment Punishment for failing to impress the god of storytelling?
The only problem I can think of with speaking in puns/riddles/etc. is that the players themselves might forget or not be able to live up to the challenge although it might be a fun one in the right group.

comment How to make a great villain who your players hate more than anything else?
Thank you for that - it brings to light an edit I need to make

Slight edit with that new info. With more insight into the party/situation I'll tailor the answer.

comment rigging precision SR5
I put that a rigger can pilot while a 'Soft shoots and vice-versa since the Rigger can, while jacked in, control the vehicle and if using a PAN can in theory use all systems solo (assuming I read the rules right)

comment Are 'Mechs included in A Time of War's core book?
I +1'd Yogo's answer for sure. There were useful snippets in there.

comment Are 'Mechs included in A Time of War's core book?
Funny in that in an earlier comment Hey I Can Chan said it was like Masquerade. NWoD did something similar: a universal core with (technically) expansions for Vampires and Wolfies. Thus you'd have cores without essential rules.

comment Extra Health from Death Rage in Gauru form?
There would be no distinct advantage, but it's still something that could happen to a character.

comment Can a flying construct escape from an open bag of holding on its own?
Depending on the nature of the construct it may have sharp edges and without an Int score things might get crazy.
