7:32a - World of Darkness system question
Asked on behalf of one of my players....
"The [World of Darkness] book says that when you spend experience points, you need to pay for all of the intervening levels of the trait. What if you're buying a merit that only has one level but is multiple points?
For example, Stunt Driver is a 3 point merit. Merits cost 'New Dots x 2' XP to buy. If purchased with XP, does it cost 6 XP (3 dots x 2), or 12 XP (1st dot x 2 + 2nd dot x 2 + 3rd dot x 2)?"
I'm inclined to go with the cost of the Merit at character creation, but if there's a rule that says otherwise, I'd like to know.

8:23a - ENnies - Last Day
Today is the last day to get your votes in for the ENnie Awards.
If you are not sure what to vote for I found a few helpful recommendations can go a long way:
Fred Hicks (Evil Hat Productions)
Jess Hartley (White Wolf)
Preston DuBose (12 to Midnight)
These three each have different experiences in the industry and different games they enjoy so you can't go wrong with any of their recommendations.
So, go vote!

4:09p - Looking for a Scenario
Firstly, Hey! I'm new, both to Lj and to this community. I was looking for some help with a party I'm planning.
Like the geek I am, I'm organising a gaming marathon for my 18th birthday party, so I'm looking for a good scenario from Call of Cthulhu to traumatise some of my innocent friends with. The player group will be a mix of noobs and vets, and I was looking for something particularly interesting/terrifying that the GM can work with. We (the experienced players) have already played the entire Stanton Street set (plus the loosely related spin offs in the Dreamlands), The Dreaming Stone, The Eye of Wicked Sight and quite a few of the short, one play session ones from www.shoggoth.net and yog-sothoth.com
So, does anyone have any suggestions? Any scenarios they particularly loved?

4:51p - 4th edition question: Toughness feat
Could someone please resolve this dispute between me and a fellow gamer before the crits start piling up???
The toughness feat grants 5 hps immediately, and this apparently scales up over the tiers- 1st, 11th, and 21st. The question is about the nature of this "scaling":
1) If you take toughness at first level you tack on 5 hps, but do you then get 5 ADDITIONAL bonus hps every time you reach a new tier, as in 5 bonus hps at 11th and 5 bonus hps 21st level???
2) If you take the feat at at a higher tier, do you get more hps for the feat, as in 10 hps at the Paragon tier (and, as in #1, 5 more at 21st level) or even 21 hps at Epic level???
I think this works fine since the overall value of the feat remains the same regardless of when you take it and actually encourages players to take it rearly rahter than later. however, my firend says that the feat just gives a straight hp bonus depending on the tier, making it much better at high levels. This seems odd to me since the system seems to assuem that feats should be better as you progress through the levels.
current mood: confused
