  1. Adding a bit here, a meditation skill...
  2. More data for classes from the test we did. The balancing occurs after level 5- please account for this so as not to balance the classes lower down then get wildly unbalanced after high level, a classic 5e, 3.5, etc, mistake.
  3. Advanced Characters from our game, posted after checking with Archameides. More soon as our beta test progresses.
  4. Sounds like it rips off the Stargate shows for their own alien conspiracy theories...Edgar Cayce is a giveaway. I’m an archaeologist and researcher in real life, there’s always some semi insult on how so called primitive people couldn’t possibly have built pyramids, etc.
  5. We are talking this thing yes? Our play test found it balanced. Recharge 1 is every other round. Or use one in each hand with penalties! Also restoring fatigue fast is a Defense, but a bounty hunter had armor rendering it ineffective. (Aris Boch)
  6. Part of tonight’s mission was just that. The medics figured a cure with help of Ann ancients text
  7. Well, looks like I must invite you to SG Canada. We are in a beta test on Skype and you just put out clues to the next mission! Let me know if you want in, we are using the beta rules and have the beta test characters available or you can make a character. Starting at level 1, progressing through various training posts gets you xperience. Then you start at about level 5. This gives us room to test the mix n match skills people will want. C4 or grenades would just break the mirrors. Depending on the GM, you might not want to let them reassemble at base here is a view of our Skype Phoenix Base... Also one of our scientists deciphering a goa’uld wall. Suggestions selcome.
  8. Origins and classes are good enough imho.
  9. Assuming they are keeping elder Tok’ra out may account for part of the rules; if so, then legolas is kept out. Egeria made broods that had no elder memories but got hers only, then another recent pangaran brood that got the so-called ‘amnesia’. See the Tok’ra spy background. As for earlier powerful versions remember that she made many broods, younger ones might be acceptable if they were hidden away as noted, or if they served long boring duties as spies in various mining camps with low access to training. They might be good at evasion, but little else. The Goa’uld should be the all dancing all nasty skill sets, but tempered with crippling greed, but that’s another story as they are npc.
  10. 5e just finished stat’g vehicles and ships. I would venture an ATV at 75-100 hp.
  11. True about the army private, perhaps allowing proficiency bonus? Example ,,, if the symbiote is proficient in a background?
  12. 5e has armor with resistance vs piercing, bludgeoning, slashing, various energies. I assume bullet resistance confers piercing resistance, halving damage done. As the OGL limits use of 5e material, I present the base rules download for rule of thumb. https://media.wizards.com/2018/dnd/downloads/DnD_BasicRules_2018.pdf
  13. 5e off hand rules, Zat in each hand.
  14. No symbiote means no host immunity=death. The add to stats, even as low as it seems would seem to represent the symbiotes years of living. I note the Unas symbiotes as base line.
  15. I find the simplicity of 5e to be the solution. In previous iterations of goa’uld a pathfinder approach was taken resulting in rules heavy tweaks to the race. This version is understandably simpler, with the basics covered and allows for local player and GM additions to the race. Though this is true for all the classes and races, the complexities of the goa’uld should imho be addressed with descriptions and option suggestions (host-symbiote in control as above) without tying down all players and GMs to clunky rules lawyering.
  16. Read the advanced (lvl 5-7 buy skills.) I made a Jaffa 17 bad guy npc and just used hp, the ace weapon tree and the skill that Max’s damage. Ma’tok staff 3d6 Max’s and quadruples to 72 damage per hit. More than enough to seriously hurt a cow...now take a few players arm em with zat guns and pray, especially for diplo inspiration. Medic revival of dead not an option (Janet Fraiser anyone?) imho I like it. i call sense of danger on this one.
  17. Thanks, April is a start date for us, most of my crew are experienced beta testers (3.5/5e Empire of the Petal Throne) and logging on here. We have a dedicated test page and will record there. I’ll begin reports in April. Bill
  18. And Ch 11 “Gatermaster” in heading? Light proof reading My group has decided to beta the system and game. We are authors and testers in Calgary Ab, Canada. With alpha and beta testing done for the Tekumel Foundation, we are eager to play this iconic tale of Stargates and adventure. -Bill
  19. Looking forward to the Season 2 already. Season 1 is a pretty good intro, but then the going gets tough. Love tough as I have GMd since 1975. My Saturday group is in for a beta treat.
