Quote from: Brand_RobinsI'm sorry if these quesitons/issues have already been dealt with. I've gone over the threads and not seen any answers, so I decided to post.
QuoteI'm not getting what is going on in some of the examples of locking stats. For example, in the second example on page 19, what is the thought process behind describing a lock on hubris as being unconciousness? I mean, what mechanical effect does it have. I know it means his Hubris can't be changed until it is broken, but is that it? Or is it that he uses it at a reduced level until it is broken (which doesn't seem to follow with the rules -- unless it was reduced then locked)? Or is it just to show that until he overcomes the current situation he can't boot his Hubris?
QuoteAlso, in several of the examples the characters boost each other's stats, but then the conflict ends. In the Metamorphosis section on page 20, for example, Lydia seems really happy about her big Arete boost -- but it really has no effect upon the game. Is this just an example of PCs gearing up in case there is a next round, or should there be some effect from having a stat boosted in the round it is boosted? (Actually, that question is more than just a "how is it done" it could be a "would this work better" -- as boosting your own and other PC stats is only useful in multiple round conflicts as it stands. You can't help out another PC with a boost in the same round, so if you think the conflict is over at the end of the current phase there isn't any reason to do it.)
QuoteOn page 22, in the first example, why does Alexander lock his Hubris if it's his Arete that's been raised?
QuoteDo burned Muses return to normal at the end of the scene, as other stats do? (Or is this something that is obsolete with the new Muse rules?)
QuoteOn page 16 the example of the GM's total is wrong – the beast has a total of 1 (ace) + 4 (4) + 9 (9) + 10 (Queen) + 0 (Joker) for a total of 24. On page 17 in the second bullet under Tricks the "some other any opponent" should be changed to something like "any other opponent" or "some other opponent" Page 18, example "a plan" not "an plan"
