This is a link to a video conversation about D&D 5E on the Youtube Channel Tabletop Gaming with Juce that I was lucky enough to participate in.
Very enjoyable hangout about the role of party leaders in RPGs, many thanks to my guests 🙂
My review of Monte Cook’s Numenera: http://youtu.be/MfkHAmhSduw
Talking about undeniable appeal that the fantasy genre has to me in roleplaying games:
- Animalism – Automatically succeed at checks to calm/communicate intent to animals and tests to ride or guide animals.
- Auspex – Automatically notice anything out of the ordinary or sense the presence of the supernatural, allows a player to ask questions about the recent past of a scene or object and have them answered truthfully.
- Celerity – Automatically escape from a scene or act first in a test of speed.
- Fortitude – Automatically ignore damage taken in a single turn.
- Obfuscate – Automatically hide themselves from scrutiny even if standing in plain sight or automatically conceal an object no larger than themselves.
- Potence – Automatically smash an inanimate object or take a foe out of action.
- Presence – Automatically succeed on social and persuasion challenge.
- Aurelia – Cello player with a goth rock band who were on the cruise relaxing and doing some promo work after a big tour.
- Stevie Steel – Lead vocallist of said rock group, a vain main who traded on looks more than talent and had spent most of the cruise in various dalliances.
- Katherine – A waitress on the cruise who was later turned into a vampire by a strange fellow she encountered in the café on the night shift.
- Orsten Thomas – A medical researcher whose outré views and outlandish experiments had lead to unwelcome press attention that he was seeking to flee.
