Re: Piloting Rules

To address the points made there in order Nobody has ever felt pressured to put something into an event simply because it was in the rule book, otherwise we'd NEVER have the social events which are largely lacking in mechanical skills - so that reasoning is fairly heavily flawed and not exactly a 'p...

Re: Piloting Rules

Hi Debs As for putting the skills on equal footing, we try to make that happen as far as possible, but we do have to accept that in some cases, it's just not possible. In some skills, we're actively trying to remedy that (archaeology for instance has been rattling round me head for a while). Others,...

Re: Piloting Rules

They aren't, no.

We looked at it, and took the decision that the game didn't need another card skill for event refs to cater to.

Piloting will be remaining a color skill, which will only rarely turn up on events.

Re: Possible spam bot?

Looking like it. Most recent post is on an old thread. Not sure what it intends to achieve. Maybe a bot fishing for details, and keeping up a pretense of activity so it isnt blocked?

Re: Mark Hobson (Sparks) - System Ref Candidate

I already have ideas for linguistics, although I must admit that I'm intending a consistency pass, rather than simplificationin the same manner as piloting. As it stands, whilst I would like to simplify a lot of the skills down, I don't believe we could really accomplish much without revising the ru...

It will need co-operation between the system refs, and the plot co-ordinator, but limited adoption of non-earth characters seems suitable conside...
