Adventure Deck - Q3 2018

Post by Snake Eyes » Sat Jun 30, 2018 5:53 am

The Savage Rifts site makes use of the Adventure Deck, which provides some small but significant benefit when played. Novice characters draw one card per quarter; More experienced characters can draw and hold one card per rank (Seasoned is two, Veteran is three, etc.) but can still only play one card per quarter. (You can also buy extra cards with EP or get them by being a Patron - those don't count toward the hold limit and can be played at any time.) Cards may be traded 1 for 1 between characters in the same group. So if your cybernetic techno-warrior draws the "Arcane Inspiration" card, it can be traded to the mage for their "BOOM! Headshot" card.

The deck can be found here (ignore the "Held By" names--those are for the ones people have bought with EP or Patronage):
Adventure Card

Just roll a 1d54 below and look up which card that corresponds to. Be mindful of your draw number; the card numbering is one off from the row numbers in the spreadsheet (Row 2 is Card 1, Row 3 is Card 2, and so on). Go ahead and post which card(s) you drew below. Cards are drawn first come first serve, so if you get a roll that has already been rolled by someone else, just note it and reroll.

New Card Draws will be effective midnight, July 1, the first day of the new quarter.
Beware the mesmerizing eyes of the snake!

Seasoned: 2 Rolls
2d54 = 65: 40, 25

25: Hidden Stash - Your hero scrounges up a generic type of item of your choosing, such as food and water, shelter, a box of ammo, enough money for a room, etc.
40: Thats Crazy Talk Mister - Play this card to cause all non-wild card enemies suffer a -2 MAP as they stop to listen to your jabbering for one round.
Everett Jackson, Titan Juicer
Everett, Human Titan Juicer
Pace: 10(d8); Parry: 7 Toughness: 24(9)
  • Uncanny Reflexes: Juicer reflexes are superhuman, granting them −2 to be hit by any attack they are aware of and +2 on Evasion rolls.
Note: Neither Quick nor Uncanny Reflexes apply on the first round of an unexpected combat/high-stress situation.
Combat-Relevant Edges & Abilities:
  • Ravenous Abandon (Berserk): Per the Berserk Edge, Everett can flip the switch and give partial control over his actions to the Reaver of Essence. This comes at a cost - ending Balitrox's berserking rage is not an option until its hunger has been sated by the blood of a wielder of arcane power
  • Charge: She may ignore the penalty for Running when making a Fighting attack at the end of her movement.
    • Overrun: If he moves at least one inch beyond his normal Pace before making any Fighting attacks, the hero adds +2 to the damage rolls. Any target Shaken by such an attack is knocked prone.
  • Drug-induced Euphoria/Tranquility: In order to keep the Juicer from burning out over a matter of days, the bio-comp constantly supplies a combination of psychotropic drugs and chemical inhibitors to keep him happy and calm. Juicers live in a state somewhere between mildly ecstatic and stoned, which causes −1 to all Smarts or Smarts-linked skill rolls in non-combat or low stress situations. On the first round of an unexpected combat or high-stress situation, the Juicer doesn’t gain the benefits of Uncanny Reflexes or Quick.
  • Frenzy: A character with Frenzy rolls a second Fighting die with any one of his Fighting attacks for the turn. The extra die may be allocated to the same or different targets as he sees fit. Resolve each separately.
  • Internal Repair System: As an action, the Juicer can make a natural healing roll at +2 to heal Wounds; this costs one charge.
  • Multi-Optic Helmet: It includes a targeting sight, magnification, thermal, infrared, ultraviolet, and night optics. The wearer ignores Illumination penalties, gains +2 to sight-based Notice checks or to offset Range penalties, and +1 Shooting with calibrated weapons. The helmet includes a hands-free radio (10-mile range) and megaphone voice-projection system.
  • Quick: Whenever you are dealt an Action Card of Five or lower, you may discard it and draw again until you get a card higher than Five.
  • Size +2
  • Split the Seconds: Juicers and Crazies often find themselves living between the ticks of the clock. This Edge allows them to ignore 2 points of Multi-Action penalties each turn (they can perform two actions at no penalty or three at −2 each).
  • Super Endurance: They require only half the normal amount of sleep and gain +2 on all Fatigue checks.
  • Trademark Weapon: +1 to Fighting with Balitrox and +1 Parry when Balitrox is readied.
Wounds: 0/3; Fatigue: 0/2; Balitrox's PPE: 5/5
Bennies: 5/3; IRMSS: 3/3
Burn: 7/8

2d54 = 26: 5, 21
Reroll 1d54 = 1: 1

Contact Your hero sees an old friend or acquaintance who might help him in his current quest somehow. Of course, he may also ask for a favor in return.

Second Wind Play on your hero to automatically remove all wounds sustained in this combat (but not crippling injuries). If Shaken, he is un-Shaken now as well.
