  1. See my post in Game Develolme t for my home brew doc
  2. Indeed this is how me fudged it in our game
  3. I have been working on a home-brew to address a lot of these concerns. I have made a separate post about it but I thought it might grab more attention if I popped it in here as well. 2 - Stargate Action System - Gatemasters Guide - v0.1.pdf 3 - Stargate Action System - Players Guide-v0.1.pdf
  4. Really, I should have posted this one first..... 2 - Stargate Action System - Gatemasters Guide - v0.1.pdf
  5. I have recently started to playtest the below. I would be keen to here any comments you all may have: The general aim is to make modern combat feel different from ranged attacks in 5e SRD, promote a cinematic style of action and address simulationist concerns. Big Changes Replacement of the upgrades system with fixed value weapons and seperate accessories. Requisitions points - used to procure weapons and accessories but do not replace back up weapons supplied with prep kits. Reloading sacrifices speed rather than actions. Minor changes include: cha
  6. I'm working on a ruleset to build any ranged weapon in under two pages - should work for Tau'ri and offworld weapons. Will post it here when it's done. Maybe a couple of days
  7. Yeah, I fed back something similar through the feedback form based on conversations with my players. Your characterisation of insufficient design space is bang on. In the interests of simplicity we've collapsed the complexity of the system to the point that in play it raises more questions than it answers. My suggestions were to (1) separate the upgrades into 'functions' and 'addons'. Functions are inherent to the weapon being stated (automatic, belt fed, etc), while add-ons can be added to any of the compatible types - that's your scopes, lasers etc. (2) limit the number of functio
  8. I have had a scan of the two very extensive documents. A lot of work went in here and I don't see anything unworkable, although I think Asgard should remain a non-playable race. Thought your idea on multiple levels of disadvantage was interesting though. Still too complicated. I'd you have 2 levels of disadvantage/advantage, roll 3 d20s and pick the lowest would be perfectly fine and a lot simpler. The increased chance to hit/miss is already there in the number of dice you roll. The main issue here is that I think we're ties to having some classes because we have to maintai
  9. Ranges need looked at asap imho. The 1800m max range for a p90 or any other 'longarm' is ludicrous. Personally I feel like the combat mechanic generally need looked at. Just two sides pummeling each other isn't very interesting. We should design our combat scenarios with specific objectives (activate the switch, dial the gate and escape, power down the forcefield, retrieve the downed team member). Combat then becomes more about stopping the enemy getting in your way rather than chasing down every last mob and hp.
  10. These changes would certainly make my engineer happier. Shotguns should be rolled into longarms. I don't understand this idea that shotguns are for less combat oriented characters when I think the only time they're used in Stargate is in some of the most intense combat against the replicators. I personally feel there's a need to either provide stats for a few specific longarms from the series with some different ranges, damage dice, capacities. I don't think that's giving the game a combat focus. I think if you ignore handguns you end up with maybe 10 weapons that need stats. H
  11. I do not have time to write a full response right now but I"d like to echo and support the thrust of this. My engineer is very unhappy. More so since another player joined and went Scout which is what he was considering changing to.
  12. Shotgun can also fire weird exotic ammo, which isn't much use IRL, but can be fun in a game - flare rounds for signalling, breeching rounds for dynamic entry etc etc.
  13. The scatter shot should be bird or buckshot. 1d4 seems find for bird, but buckshot should be a d6 and would have a tighter but longer come.
  14. Yeah, I hope they do this too. If you're writing your own campaign coming up with settings can be tough.
  15. Agreed, Jaffa soldier is a must have. Mightbalso be good to give us stats for some actual characters from the show. It doesn't have to be perfect, just something to give us ideas when making characters.
