Not aware of actual plays, but I shared my initial impressions from actual play in this thread and this thread.Thanks for the responses, everyone. Elemental looks interesting to me. Any reviews or actual plays out there?
This is true. Frankly, I've seen soooo many cases of one player's "must have features" being another player's "game must not include" list. Frankly, even with games that have a lot of similarities just a few differences can make one "perfect" with the other being an also-ran.To me, hearing that new universal systems exist isn't enough. Universal systems unfortunately have a strong tendency to have identical sales pitches, making it very difficult to judge whether one might better suit one's tastes than another. Thus, it would be very nice to hear what makes one potentially preferable over another.
Cortex Prime is close to come out and there's PDF previews for preorders. Very modular rule set and has a lot of dials to turn.
Thanks, guys, but I did already mention knowing about the oft-delayed Cortex Prime rules in the original post. I pre-ordered it on backerkit early last year. While I don't expect it to dethrone Beyond Human as the tabletop Duke Nukem Forever, I don't think it's reasonable to say it's close to coming out.Freeform Universal has been talking about a new edition for ages, and Cortex Prime is entirely playable. I just started an Eberron game using it this week!
Neat! What differences will this have from the previous edition? Figured out any way to reduce larger dice pools (say those above 5D or 6D)?
It's still going to be a 'six sided dice paradise', but the pools have indeed been reduced from the first edition.Neat! What differences will this have from the previous edition? Figured out any way to reduce larger dice pools (say those above 5D or 6D)?
