Rolemaster / Re: Feedback: Channeling/Sapping

Oh, I just thought of an alternative, simpler solution:

--Channeling will be the stat for Sorcerers and Healers, since its stats are R* + R* + SD, and these classes can then use both their casting stats for their PP. So the Sorcerer's stats for Channeling would be In + Em + SD, while the Healer's would be In + Pr + SD.

--Power Projection will be the stat for Mystics, since its stats are likewise R* + R* + SD, so the Mystic's stats would be Em + Pr + SD

That's the easy way to do it. You could then offer the more personalized way of doing it I outlined above as an option if you wanted further flexibility.

I've been running a Tintamar campaign since the beginning of the year.  So far, it has gone well - except for the combat system.
I'm definitely going to have to mod that (a lot).  What happens is whoever shoots first stuns the other guys who then never get to act.  Don't bother to reply that that's what "reality" would be, this needs to be a fun game and either the bad-guys are faster, in which case they win, or the players are faster and they win.  Combat can be reduced to see who has the highest initiative on the 1st round... they win...move on to the next scene if the players win, otherwise roll up new characters since everyone is dead or captured.

I have 3 copies left of Vog Mur, 1 still shrinkwrapped and 6 copies of Shade, 4 still shrinkwrapped. If you want one, let me know before I head to eBay and amazon.

I already have big dreams for GenCon:

A Shadow World tournament, rescuing the Northern Eye?

Shadow World Rolemaster adventures

A Space Master Adventure in Shadow World. Dia Khovaria?

And maybe prizes, like a flash drive containing SW or Rolemaster PDFS? A signed copy of my novel?

What do you all think?

Separate PP skills with different side uses is interesting, but how do you deal with hybrid casters?

Hmmm... good point. I hadn't really thought of the Hybrids.

I don't have an ideal solution yet -- I'm just brainstorming here -- but a few thoughts popped up:

--Average: You could try using an average of the skills involved: E.g. Sorcerers, being hybrids of Essence and Channeling, would use the average of their skills in Power Projection and Channeling. But that is not ideal, since it would require them to pay for two skills simultaneously.

--Primary Skill: Perhaps you could say that Hybrids choose one of the PP skills (P. Projection, Channeling, or Mental Focus) to be their main source of power? Again, it isn't entirely ideal, since we want to see a Hybrid as tapping into both power sources. But on the other hand, getting them to choose a primary power source adds a bit more flavor and distinction to different builds within the profession. Thus you could have one school of Sorcerers that leans more towards Power Projection, using it as their source of PowerPoints and enjoying the benefits of better Power Projection (possibly extending to the limited recharging of items); while another school leans more towards Channeling, using it as their power source and benefiting from that skill's added ability to recharge people rather than items?

Some races would then be better suited to one school, and others to others, depending on whether their race gets a bonus to Em, In, or Pr. High men for example might tend to rely on their own prodigious mental focus to power their spells, while a race with high Em might naturally focus more on tapping into the Essence flows.

Oh man. I just told my buddies that I didn't think I could make GenCon this year due to the fact that I have 2 small kids at home; you are making it very hard to say no!

I'd love to see something from Emer III, especially something like exploring the Krylites.

Just a heads-up, I am no planning to attend GenCon this year, working the booth, sitting on at least one panel, and hoping to run a few Shadow World / Rolemaster games and or demos. What would you all like to see?
