Re: Check In

Only 2 for continuing and few others on hangouts saying they are overloaded.

I'll be sending this game to the archive, but maybe starting up a new Rifts group in Q2. Keep your eyes open.

But is already providing Danger Sense, so it could just be a matter or trapping on the danger sense, that the axe is always aware of the evils around him?
Yes, but he also wants dispel and berserk. But only two major slots. In the old version danger sense was trapped that way.

Also, I am just going to chime in now and say no to using negatives (like hindrances) to add more upgrade slots. It's just not in the rules and I am uncomfortable breaking them right out of the gate. To help make this work I can see glows in the presence of evil as a trapping or minor slot (losing t...

Re: Modain’s Clutch (Enchanted Sig Item for Alex in the 12th)

Approved.

Technically Networking is not a Trait as it is right now the bonus applies to both Persuasion and Intimidation when using Networking. This is cool, we have examples of adding to non-Trait rolls such as HJ results that add +2 to Connections rolls. Just call it other minor modification.

The holy trapping is simply part of the item and should not be a minor slot.

If the holy trapping is part of the item then I can end the debate from the GM Hangout and use both minor slots for hazard protection if need be.
