Cinder Spires Books / Re: piker gun tech makes no sense
« on: January 02, 2024, 01:42:06 PM »
The issue with the Piker's here is they are very much hand to mouth and not really having time to invest on testing or ideating on things. People who are generally in the setting working on new technology, are doing it with crystals and other etheral type technology. So the older and cheap stuff is left behind, and the Piker's use it because its cheap and don't really have the resources to plow into trying to figure out how to make better guns which took a lot of time, and testing, and it wasn't always a straight line forward type thing (IE you might improve accuracy but take more time, like with rifling, and then figuring out how to do that best took longer... and rifles took a lot longer to make too).

Essentially the Piker's lack the resources to invest in gunpowder weapon development, and the other spires lack the will to as they prefer to invest in improving the safer technology they have.

My view is the armor is meant to represent the fact that inverse older wizards are harder to influence with mind magic.

The stress boxes make you better at dishing it out longer (as does presumably improved skills)

Thanks,

Would love to see some sneak in there! Out of curiousity, how far up is the accelerated version going? Just to Even Hand or is it going to try and go up through Skin Game?

DFRPG / Review of Paranet Papers
« on: May 08, 2015, 07:55:41 PM »
Hello guys,

I've been registered for a while but mostly lurk here when I want inspiration and ideas that you guys toss out as well as some of the wonderful discussions that go on. So its with a bit of trepidation that I make my first post a bit self promotional.

I'm a reviewer at TechRaptor (or have been for the past 8 months or so ) and I got to do my first tabletop ones really recently with the Paranet Papers (I did DFRPG vol 1 and 2 just to provide a basis for that review basically). I found the book to be pretty good on the whole with a few weaknesses but a good read as one would expect as the writing in it was again top notch.

Just a little snippet from it here:
Quote
On the whole, the Paranet Papers is basically more Dresden Files. It updates for a couple of novels, writes some really interesting settings, and tosses in a bit of crunch. If you were looking for any major fixes or tweaks to the system, thatís not here and I suggest continuing to wait until Dresden Files Accelerated comes out using Fate Accelerated. On the other hand, if you want to dive into the universe of the Dresden Files, or use a similar urban fantasy and hack it up with Fate V3 rules (or use an online conversion guide for Fate Core), this is a well-written book with great art and tons of ideas.

If you want to give the thing a read it would be appreciated and it can be found at: http://techraptor.net/content/dfrpg-paranet-papers-review-paranormal-explored, and I'd love to hear your feedback on the review (and if you want the original ones too). I am aiming to do more tabletop reviews so some feedback on it would be great.
