cross over to HARP SCI FI
« on: January 07, 2017, 10:07:31 AM »
Has anyone done a cross over skill list for HARP fantasy and HARP Sci fi?  I have both in my world.

I can see where SF skills could be used in Fantasy and vice versa. As I am working on starting a Science Fantasy game (start in SF that works its way into Fantasy), I am even considering making Mystical Arts and Scientific the same category for cross overs. One thing I have noticed is that the SF book refers to the previous printing of Fantasy regarding separate skills vs. subskills, whereas HARP Fantasy automatically uses subskills.

I would not merge Mystical and Scientific. This would make a supercategory that would be far too powerful.

Best wishes,

I hadn't thought of it that way, and I can see how it would be a problem with additional professions. My reasoning was on the idea that in worlds where magic exists, magic is science. Always nice to get other opinions before implementing something.
