We do post updates on Earthdawn, 1879, and Demonworld at http://fasagames.com regularly, and on social media including Facebook, MeWe, Twitter, Mastodon, pluspora, and Roleplay Cafe, as well as the FASA official Discord server. We've tried posting line updates and blog entries here but it never seem...

Re: Renegade Legion line

Funny enough, I taught my kid about Clarke's Law the other night, talking about Numenera and ancient artifacts and such.

Re: Renegade Legion line

Yeah, somehow I don't think even the finest of steampunk will satisfy an appetite for space opera with gauss gun-equipped orbital interceptors.

Re: Tagging skills

Tag it once the roll is allowed, either before or after the dice are rolled. The die roll is not important to the tag, the attempt at using the Skill to be effective in the scene is.

Re: Tagging skills

You tag a Skill whenever it's used in a significant way, whether or not it's successful. The Skill use has to be meaningful to the scene, not a throwaway Test for the purpose of tagging. And yes, you learn from failure as well as success. You can also only tag a Skill once per scene. If you use Fire...

Re: What are the best places to play online?

I run all my games on Discord nowadays, but organize them on Discord, G+, MeWe, and a variety of other social media platforms. Bear in mind that my Earthdawn campaign has been going 25 years, so the core group has known each other a long time and across both multiple platforms and in person. As far ...

Re: Jesus Christ Serpent

The walking on water thing is a bit high level for the Gruv, and definitely out of line for Earth two years after the Awakening. I'm also looking at the Attack and Damage Steps, the special attacks, and so forth. The beastie is stacked a bit heavy for the scale of the game, although if you wanted to...

Re: Jesus Christ Serpent

I'd rule that this is more of an Earthdawn creature than an 1879 creature. Its AP Award comes out to 6170, which makes it a Master Tier creature, and that's erring on the low side, not adding in APs for the two special maneuvers or the two Powers that don't have Steps. Something like this in the Gru...

Re: Licences and Corestep

Legally, no. Putting Star Trek books into grab-bag boxes would be an obvious attempt to circumvent copyright law. If we sell anything we don't have the license for, we would be sued for copyright violation, and rightfully so.
