Using Light Ritual to 'blind enemies of the faith.'

So the Level 2 Orthodox ritual Light can emit a search light beam that can be used to 'blind enemies of the faith.' Just wondering if there are any rules for this, or is it something we're supposed to judge on a case-by-case basis?

Re: Question: Hardness and TL

You mean charge for example 110 (20 x4 to bring it up to TL 5 and get Hard + 30 for shock)? That'd work as well, I think my only real problem with it is the way it's presented in the book makes that a non-intuitive approach, whereas I think it's more likely for shock and vibro weapons (being TL 5) t...

Re: Question: Hardness and TL

I suppose I'd go with the (IMO) simplest option - if you get a vibro or shock weapon (paying the +30 or +100), you can take it that you 're buying a TL 5 weapon and get the Hard quality as well. The only real issue with this is that it technically makes a TL 5 shock blade cheaper than a TL 5 blade (...

Communication skill?

The life path system has a number of options that list 'Communication' as a skill, but I can't see it in the skills section (though it is mentioned again in the influence skill description, under charm (saying that the Communication skill is required to charm large groups of people). Was this a skil...

Re: Question: Hardness and TL

In any case, you need to pay the additional TL-upgrade costs for most melee weapons to get them to TL5. Hm... thougths Yeah, I guess I'm kinda confused as to how the upgrades (like shocker) are meant to be applied. If you purchase a shocker war sword on a TL 5 planet, is it 50 fb (20 for a war swor...

Question: Hardness and TL

So on page 283 of the player's guide it notes that most melee weapons tend to have the 'Hard' quality at TL 5. Does this include vibro or shocker weapons? If you buy a shock war sword do you effectively get a weapon with both the shock and hard qualities for +30fb?

Re: Jumpgate everyday use

Moreover, I think that even without total control over keys Charioteers could be filthy rich (like it's with computer piracy in our world - over 40% of software worldwide is pirated, but Microsoft, Apple, Oracle and others are still biggest companies in the world). Also, as practice shows - the mor...

Question: How do you close a gate?

Just wondering - how hard is it to close a jump gate? I'm guessing it's pretty difficult and not something just anyone can do. Yet it was clearly something a fair number of people knew how to do during the fall, given the number of lost worlds. So who can do it, how difficult is it and how long does...

Re: The long arm of the law

Yeah, a smart crook will head somewhere the offended party is not popular. A lot then comes down to just how much the offended lord/guilder/priest cares. If it's a minor crime, like robbing or killing a peasant, then he'll probably drop it. If it's more serious he might take further action. He might...
