Feedback for Mass Effect: ICRPG
I think that you’ve definitly captured the feel of Mass Effect universe so far!!
it definitely feels that its been inspired by it rather than a conversion (something to keep in mind going forward)
With the Krogan Advanced Regeneration, maybe make it so that Recovert rolls are EASY? and they recover they CON in HP rather than 1? That may encourage players to place points in there but not so much that it’s overpowered.
The powers section in the new mechanics page needs to be clarified as well to emphaise the fact you can use more than one power at a time during your turn. I’m assuming that if you use 2 powers at once that when you make the attempt and fail/succeed that both powers are affected.
finally, If you want to keep shields in the game (which considering they’re a big part of Mass Effect in general). Use them as LOOT that gives armor bonus and don’t include Armor as LOOT at all. otherwise if you try and go the regen shield route, as you know that’s just a whole lot more book keeping (which is against the ICRPG paradigm)
Something to add (which I’m sure is already in the works) is when players have to make a choice about an action they make, give them either a Paragon or Renegade point. Obviously this will effect how NPC"s react to them during the game,
You did a great job and the adventure itself was flowing smooth as silk, and what was interesting was that because of the pace it was going, I wasn’t losing focus.
Thanks to you though, now that I’ve seen the RHVTT in action and getting a greater feel for the system in general, its inspiring me to write my own ‘inspired conversion’.
