Re: Organization of Colonial regiments.

Some of this was handled in the Miniatures Corebook and hasn't made it over to the RPG yet. The Colonial Regiments are generally mostly native, with white officers only at the very top. Note that the Military Officer portrait in the Players Guide is a Sikh. The British Army in the game world is over...

Re: What about British Military members not suited to OBV.

We haven't detailed such, but I'm sure there's a unit operated partly out of Whitehall to take in those with potential who don't fit in the OBV. The OBV would regard that unit poorly, because espionage is not a gentlemen's game. The Knights of the Grail might be involved, since it's an intelligence ...

Re: Character Advancement Questions

The key is on p.263: "the Tier when it was learned". You pay the cost for the Skill according to the Tier your character was at when you learned the Skill. If you learned the Skill as a Novice, you pay the Novice cost for it. If you learned the Skill as a Journeyman, you pay the Journeyman cost for ...

Re: Cracking Bank Hall - Character Journals [Spoilers]

Quite well written, indeed, captures the style of the period very well. Nice reference to the Y2K bug, amusing that. Having a couple of different characters' viewpoints of the same events has been good - each has focused on a different set of details, picked out points that seemed important to them,...

Re: Spell Questions

1) Yes, but you have to beat the same TN as if trying to hack it with Engine Programming. 2) This is handled in the spell creation mechanic, which is in the Players Companion (awaiting layout). We address creating new Base Spells and new KAVs. It's easier to create a new KAV than a new Base Spell, s...

Re: Mage Lodge: Cartographers

Sorry, I had a Vincent Price flashback there, to the opening scene of "The Raven", where Price's character asks the raven that's just flown in his window, will I ever see my lost Lenore? And the raven, in Peter Lorre's voice, says, How the hell should I know?

Re: Mage Lodge: Cartographers

Interesting mix of Mages and technicians - the goggles requirement feels almost like Brassman verging into Heron. I like the Raven swooping down to translate. Does the Raven also offer sarcastic commentary?
