I just got the new SWN last night. It is a thing of beauty! Thank you,
and everyone involved.
I have a rookie question (after making three 'test characters).
When it comes to foci:
Everyone gets one.
Experts get another one, which must be non-combat, non-psychic.
Warriors get another one, which must be a combat focus.
Is that correct?
That is indeed the case.
Cool. Thanks. :-)
And heroic PCs get an extra Focus on top.
Love the Dan Dare image from the very first issue of 2000AD, drokk it!
What about an Adventurer (partial Expert/Partial Warrior). Do they get three Foci?
Yes- that's their perk. They don't get the reroll/don't-die abilities of full Experts/Warriors, but they get more range in available foci.
I love this game on first sight. Though haven't been able to play it myself yet. A bit weird, right? I've been thinking, what is in it so attractive for me? Came to think it's the setting and world and faction generators. For rules... If I ever manage to GM it, I'll squeeze in as much from PbtA as possible. I'm more on narrativist side than old-school.
Just started reading the new edition. And if destiny does not throw me just another curve ball, by the end of the year I might produce a small module for your game, +Kevin Crawford .
A small note. I can't understand why the charsheet on page 5 is not filled in, for the benefit of easier grasp what really goes in each cell. It would be a real perk for n00bs.
