Skill trapping diagram and other PDF handouts!

boost-patches-colorNews: We have a new PDF supplement out! Boost Patches are items commonly found in bases that grant temporary super powers. Some base raiders sell them instead of using them, but they can mean the difference between life and death in an emergency. This PDF also contains the adventure seed for the AP The Lost Treasure of the Candy Man!

RPPR listener Leshrac recently uploaded several PDFs to help players and GMs. The first PDF is the skill trapping diagram and skill summary to help build unique and strange skills.

Alternate Rules for Power Tiers

ELDER THINGPower tiers can be problematic, especially in high power games with a large number of players. The following rules can be used to simplify using different power tier skills during a game.

Unopposed rolls: A skill with a power tier above mundane always gains better results with a success on an unopposed roll than a mundane skill roll. For example, a scientist with a +4 science skill at mundane tier rolls a +4 for a skill check to analyze a chemical compound learns everything about the chemical. However, a scientist with a +1 science skill at the superhuman tier who rolls a +1 would gain approximately the same amount of info as the mundane scientist. GMs should reward players who use skills at higher power tiers by giving them better results than is normal.

Opposed rolls: A character with a higher power tier making an opposed roll against a lower power tier skill gains a flat +2 bonus per power tier in difference. Both characters still roll 4dF. No d6 dice replace fate dice.  For example, a character with Stealth at superhuman tier gains a +4 bonus on his roll when trying to sneak by a character with mundane Alertness.

Elizabeth Solomon wanted to become a vampire and found her own way after raiding a base, but she’s only just gotten started! Even though she’s undead, she prefers to get her sustenance from her part time job at a blood bank. As a hobby, Elizabeth uses her knowledge of the occult to investigate supernatural mysteries and help heroic base raiders. Of course, vampire hunters don’t see the distinction between her and the other undead, but no one’s life is perfect, right?

This PDF contains a full write up of Elizabeth Solomon as a medium power hero. She can be used as a player character or NPC for any Base Raiders game. It includes her full stats and powers, including using her as a high power hero, and a scenario seed featuring her, vampire hunters, and more!
