Re: Sha'ahm'ni- Sard Hand Language

Was Sha'ahm'ni created as a response specifically to the loss of Zehreik? I don't see anything in the lorebook or rules to clarify whether that's the case or if it predated that event. If it was created at that time, there are actually three generational experiences here. There's a generation that h...

Re: Passions Capstone / Basic & Foundational abilities question

That would be a useful thing to add to the Glossary on page 33. My reading is that Foundational abilities are the ones marked as such, and everything else in the rulebook is a Basic ability. 2nd tier abilities would be Advanced. So if it says "Basic or Foundational ability" that means "anything list...

Re: Fast Health & Improved Accelerate Recovery

Alternatively, it could be beneficial. E.g. if you have Fast Health and someone uses Accelerate Recovery on you, perhaps you don't have to expend a Health, you get the benefit for free. Not sure if that works out pointwise (the cost is... 2 or 3? probably too cheap for that if it's 2), but instead o...

Re: Sha'ahm'ni- Sard Hand Language

It's a subtle distinction that we don't normally bother to make. If I laugh, it's not just "I feel joy" or "I praise your humor" but both of those things. So I guess I was just asking whether, for the Sard, they were trying not to express the former. But from what you're saying, it's ok to communica...

Re: Sha'ahm'ni- Sard Hand Language

Since you wanted to revive this discussion... Stepping back for a moment, what is the purpose of sha'ahm'ni? Is it intended to convey the whole range of emotional experience? For that matter, would it be considered appropriate or inappropriate to discuss one's emotional state? In other words, is it ...

Re: Sha'ahm'ni- Sard Hand Language

Afraid as the flat palm, woah, back up, feels very natural to me. Whatever the sign is for afraid, it needs to be almost instinctive, since a LARP is a game played with real fear.... :) There are some implied gestures. Holding an object says either "I'm busy" or "this is no time for emotion". To spi...

Re: Sha'ahm'ni- Sard Hand Language

On the wheel, the two axes we are missing are interest/anticipation/vigilance (which is already proposed) and admiration/trust/acceptance. Everything else is matters of degree. Admiration/trust/acceptance could be a signal for "agreement". There's some overlap with attention (I'm paying attention to...

Google Drive folder for in-game stuff

I created a folder which is shared: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1ik7y9QAIBWh-VldN0QB3dGWxoNxkSrat?usp=sharing I'm not sure what exactly that allows you to do but it should include editing. There is one document in there now which is the start of a lexicon (feel free to add to it, too). I ...

Re: Pooling Knowledge/BGS Resources - Nerds Unite!

I can already see an Outpost Promise IG board, but maybe that's not everyone yet?

Regarding "Auger", I'm sure that's actually "Augur" in the sense of https://www.dictionary.com/browse/augur?s=t Whereas Auger is basically a type of drill.

Re: Pooling Knowledge/BGS Resources - Nerds Unite!

I would encourage you to move this to the Outpost IG board so there's no ambiguity about what we do and don't know. That said, the idea of coordinating efforts and sharing results is pretty exciting, I always wanted more of that in TOV2. So, yes! Personally, I am prone to visions. Some things I've c...
