I am totally looking forward to politics sliding more into the background and hope the operation Warp Speed vaccine rollout will motivate them to roll back the lock downs here in North West Washington.



PS: I do not need a prize, but if there are less than 7 entries would love and use the Foundry SW stuff

  • 2D6 EFFECT
    2 Catastrophe: Something goes terribly wrong. The GM must decide what, but some ideas are a new and permanent Minor Hindrance, the inability to use powers for several days, or an explosion of some sort. The backlash should be thematic if possible. If the hero tampers with dark forces for his abilities, for example, he might become corrupted or summon something sinister into the world. If he’s a weird scientist the device might explode for 3d6 damage in a Medium Blast Template, or he might develop a Quirk, Phobia, or other “madness.”

    3 Backfire: The power succeeds as with a raise but affects a different target with the worst possible results. A bolt hits a random friend, boost Trait increases an enemy’s skill or attribute, etc. If there’s no likely target, he’s Stunned instead. If the power has a Duration other than Instant, it lasts its full term and can only be negated by dispel (the caster can’t voluntarily end it herself).

    4–5 Short Circuit: The power fails but the Power Points allocated to it are spent, along with an additional 1d6 Power Points.

    6–8 Stunned: The caster is Stunned (see page 106). She subtracts 2 from arcane skill rolls for the rest of the encounter (the penalty remains –2 even if she gets this result again).

    9–10 Overload: The character’s synapses crackle and overload with power. He takes 2d6 damage plus the cost of the power in Power Points, including any Power Modifiers the player declared.

    11 Fatigue: The character suffers Fatigue.

    12 Overcharge: The power draws ambient energy from the air, automatically succeeding against the target with a raise and costing the caster no Power Points!

2021 will bring some return to normalcy as it goes, politics will become less important and the virus concern will continue to decline. I personally will divert more attention to fun things instead like PbP gaming.

Silver Patron reward would be cool. Thanks.

In 2019 I had surgery and took most of the year to get my arm working again. In 2021 I already have two surgeries scheduled. 2020 was not so bad.

Thankful 2020 is over and looking forward to 2021 because surviving COVID-19 built some resistance, if not immunity, and surviving 9 months of leading a team through remote work built skills (communication, especially) we'll be able to leverage in the new year.

Edit: Put me down for the Foundry loot.

I am looking forward to the end of the apocalypse that was 2020. This last year should have been in the rulebook under "Causes for RIFTS".

If I sneeze in public, I don't want people near me to make the sign of the cross....

Either prize is cool, which ever you have left over (I'll take the last one)

Thanks!
