Yeah, thinking we should do separate leader boards for each game. You're right, that's not a leader board now, just a list of results.

Cool. So are you going to do a proper leader board? Points scoring etc.

That 'Leader Board' does not make sense to me - just looks like actual results.

Thread to list and discuss.


“It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” – Harry S. Truman

NOPE. You can upgrade 1.

(However, that 3rd party Translation Codex or whatever it's called has foci that I think lack power. I might use some of these to 'add' a little something. Probably ignore for now, but if you use this book and find the powers underwhelming, give me a hoy and we can work something out - I have modified some for school games and just saying these extra options are good ideas :)).

Re: Advancement - Foci Powers by ConnorsConnors, 20 Jul 2017 01:38

Cool


Chaotic Good: Governments should be afraid of their people.

Ok I had not noticed that for some reason. Are you saying we would get 1 extra from this list in addition to other Tier powers?

Re: Advancement - Foci Powers by VampreyVamprey, 19 Jul 2017 12:10

Received my hard copy of Ultramodern 5E.

Heaps on weapons. I kinda used the PDF when doing my weapons stats, but I think I will go over the modern 5E D&D damages again and stick more closely with those in this book.

In this book most guns still do 1 die of damage and it is not a lot higher than old weapons or being stabbed with a sword. I prefer these to the elevated damages in the DMG (where they are done very briefly).


“It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” – Harry S. Truman

In fact, I am glad I looked at these again myself, as I think I might let PCs from the Translation Codex choose one of these as well. They seem weak compared to core rulebook foci.

Re: Advancement - Foci Powers by ConnorsConnors, 19 Jul 2017 03:29

Given we have a PC or 2 approaching beyond 2nd tier, I just thought I would mention a few things. If people have read the books they will be all over this anyway :P

Type Abilities

This is written at top of every Tier of your Types, but bears repeating:
I am pretty sure everyone knows when they choose Type Tier abilities they can choose from lower Tiers too, but not sure if people are taking not of the line: In addition, you can replace one of your lower-tier abilities with a different one from a lower tier.

So as you hit Tier 3 and beyond, this can be an 'upgrade'. This does mean you can also change one Tier 1 ability for a Tier 2 ability. So over time, if you keep doing this (only once per Tier advancement), you could end up with no or few Tier 1 powers for eg.

Has anyone done this?

FOci Powers

Again, this is in book and I have repeated it on all the pages where I have listed foci for settings. Just making sure people know.

At start of FOci chapter (Cypher System Core Rulebook p91) it lists a whole bunch of features you can choose from if you don't like you Focus ability at a given tier. I would encourage people to stick with their focus, but sometimes these extra options might suit your PC better.

Just a couple of things to keep in mind and I tht I'd put them here in 1 place.

Cup Season 18 Songs Position & Dist from Winner Vs Pre-Race Rank Cup Run Notes (& Votes) Bookies' Predictions? Ratings
Lithium 1st by 4 lengths. +0 spots Took some time to move to the front and when there swapped lead with TeenSpirit sev times inc in home stretch. (50) Picked as likely winner. 2 thumbs up.
Smells Like Teen Spirit 2nd by 4 lengths. +4 spots Strangely came in as 6th fav. After initial shuffling around, led for most of race and battled it out with Lithium in run home. (43) Despite queries counting against it, tipped to rise: 2 thumbs up.
In Bloom 3rd. 12 lengths off winner. +2 spots Along with other Nirvana runners, settled in top4 early, though kicked away from AA late in race. (35) Picked to improve with chance to win. 2 thumbs up.
All Apologies 4th. Length of straight. -1 spot Matched it with stablemates for 3/4 of run, even sat 2nd for some time. Could not keep up the breakneck pace all the way home. (28) Tipped to gain a place from 3rd. Lost 1. 2 thumbs down.
Take a Long Line 5th. Not in strt. +2 spots Other Angels runners started higher pre-race, but all were practically evenly matched (3-way photo in Stakes). This settled into 5th 1/2 through and stayed safe from there. (19) To hold within a place. 1 thumb down.
No Secrets 6th. Not in strt. -4 spots Was not in race at all. Would have been a huge slide if it had not passed sev runners very late in race. Disappointing run for 2nd fav. (12) Tipped slight slide. Almost huge. 1 thumb up.
Pulse 7th. Not in strt. +3 spots Started with a bang, got rounded up and settled in last few before a little surge late in the run to improve its pre-race posi. (11) Tipped a rise. 2 thumbs up.
Cup Season 18 Songs Position & Dist from Winner Vs Pre-Race Rank Cup Run Notes (& Votes) Bookies' Predictions? Ratings
Forkboy 8th. Not in sight. +1 spots Though well back from leaders, improved its position thanks to a strong start. (9) Tipped slight fall. 2 thumbs down.
Black No. 1 9th. Not in sight. +5 spots A very strong start from the outsider. Kept itself in front of sev more fancied runners. (8) Dire predictions from bookies were worried this would be scratched. Very big 2 thumbs down!
Serve the Servants 10th. Not in sight. +1 spot Very slow start. Edged passed some other slow runners 3/4 of way into race. (7) Slight rise tipped. 2 thumbs up.
Shadow Boxer 11th. Not in sight. -7 spots Very ordinary run. Likely to make Top 7 Sliders list. :( Was supposed to be one of equal contenders with 5 others for a place. (5) Hold within a spot. Fell 7! 2 thumbs definitely down.
Dancing with Myself 12th. Not in sight. -4 spots Started as the best of the non-Nirvana/Angels runners. Flunked badly after stalling in barriers for too long. Lucky for a brief surge or it would have been last. (5) Tipped as smokey & big improvement. 2 thumbs all the way down.
Welcome Home 13th. Not in sight. +0 spots Started okay, but soon retreated to back of pack where it remained. (4) Tipped 1 spot raise but still in bottom 3. No thumbs.
Weak as Piss 14th. Not in sight. -2 spots Was one of the 1st to jump, but appears to have injured itself in its enthusiasm to get out of barriers. A pity it turned out to be an appropriately named rummer :( (1) Stay in bottom 3. 2 thumbs up.
