Re: Fists vs Armor

It is something I struggled with in design. In the depths of my madness, I considered two options: 1. When you attack hand to hand, you deal 1/2 damage back to your arms depending on armor type. For instance, hard armors, plate or flack with plates or scale or chain, would have this issue. The idea ...

Re: Lethality

Hi Bill! From what I've read and played, Iridium is a very lethal system. How does it play out for you? Do you have a lot of player casualties in your games? Almost any hit at the right location can terminate a PC. How does it play for you? What was the design intent behind this? I'm curious about ...

Upgrading the site 10172015 - 10302015

Folks,
We are going through an upgrade of hardware and software on the site so we may have some intermittent down time. Once we are up, I would love to here what is not working. I will let you know when we are through it...mostly.

Thank you for your patience,
Bill

Re: Area attacks and hit locations

How do you handle damage from area attack in Iridium? Like a grenade or a fireball? It would be strange to apply all damage to a single location, but I didn't see anything on how to handle that. Did I miss something? On the other hand, applying damage to ALL locations would be extreme, unless you s...

Are you available for question about Iridium? Thanks! Hope someone is still listening! Sorry for the dela...

Re: Life Path - revised thoughts

See, here is my problem. You have, basically, a group of skills. Life Pathing (to make sure we are talking about the same thing) is a method of walking the character through creation, with choices affecting skills as they progress and possibly having random chance influence the creation process. So,...

Re: Silent Running

Well, glad you could stop by Don. I talk about your Havoc Cover all the time. No, Alan, this is not the end but more an intermission. I need time to regroup and try to decide what to do with the publishing effort. It might become something different or it might just proceed at a slower pace (yeah, h...

Re: Silent Running

Hey Alan, yeah, I have to say I have been taking a break for a bit...well, more than a bit. The consulting side of HinterWelt has been doing a bit too well but that really is not it. I just feel a bit...out of modern gaming and what it seems to be becoming. What I mean is on one side you have WOTC a...

Re: back - again - after too long.

Hey! Welcome back. Not much going on right now. Summer is kind of a slow season and I have been admittedly slacking off. I am such a bad man. :twisted: Sorry to hear about your bad luck man. Let me know if I can help you out and be sure to share some stuff. Folks have been getting a bit jazzed about...
