the spells are amazing and i would love them a whole lot for euphoria reasons but they don't have levels so we can't prepare/learn them :<

Reading through the Capacitor's special abilities:
Conduit. Your avatar is able to conduct massive amounts of computational energy. You may trigger an Authority Function without spending the normal cost directed by your crew sheet, however when you do so you must Deresolve at the end of the scene.
Ignite. Pain is temporary but power is forever. Whenever you do not resist damage (ie. you do not use armor, damage-reducing abilities, or download any Harm), gain greater effect on your next function in this scene. When you would Deresolve, you may first perform a final function ignoring any Harm penalties
A couple questions about this:
1) does conduit's deresolution trigger ignite?
2) when you derez, does Ignite let you use an authority function via conduit?
I just remembered this question I asked and your response regarding consequences reminded me of this:
As your hand hovers over the ghost-shape of the unlocked safe, you realize there is a security subroutine inside wired to recognize archival tampering. It takes the shape of a coiled viper, fangs laced with thought-venom. You want to try to defuse it on a Risky roll?Is this something that can be resisted? If so, what attribute is appropriate for resisting via the equivalent of picking up the snake by the neck?
Feature request I would really love: 2 states with the same hotkey, one is held down, the other is not.
State 1 (hotkey numpad 1, enter on press)
State 2 (hotkey numpad 2, leave on release)
State 3 (hotkey numpad 2, enter on press)
Initial state: State 1
Hold down numpad 2: State 2
Release numpad 2: State 3
This will be useful for, say, taking a deep breath before screaming, or winding up to slam the desk.
this game is so cute and whimsical and adorable and i made silly characters in my head acting out scenes while reading the playbooks
it's not my kind of game but it reminds me when my buds and i used to roleplay all sorts of characters hanging out and doing stuff and i'm sure this game could easily give someone this same whimsy
In the real world, what you have on you can easily no longer be on you without too much effort. Drop a sword, or put a document in a box, or hand a dollar bill to someone. Is this within the realm of possibility with the rules as written?
For example: a filcher filches two coin worth of crypto on the way to the real quarry: a MEMcrystal containing the instant this User fell in love. But he indulged his recall, and with the two coin he's filled in all four slots. Would he be able, RAI, to drop one coin and take the memcrystal?
Or perhaps on his way out of this scenario a guard catches him, and he gives the other stolen Coin to shut him up. RAI, can he do this? Is the mem slot empty?
Am I even thinking about memory right? Or is there something fundamentally wrong I'm getting?
From the book:
Hmm.. seems like every snapshot in the timeline you can find where the safe is open, it’s also mostly cleared out in that moment? That’s some impressive version control discipline.
It certainly seems, from the way you put it, that it's possible to scrub the archives without using Authority, or at least prevent something from being recorded. Can the players make use of this? Perhaps erase evidence of opening the door, or ensuring the timeline doesn't have a snapshot of someone stealing a memory?
hi yes i love the ARC foundation and if I'm a player i will likely spend much of my downtime paying a purveyor for access to snapshots of their database as i the person have done with something very similar in the real world
Oooh, a new version releasing this week! Any online playtests I can join as a college student in UTC+8? /j
Side note, my groupmates and I want to make a digital character sheet for Hello World as a class project, is this authorized? And is the web application being public authorized?
I see, so they can still have some form of identity with their RAM, but without external storage that's basically all they can have?
Now that I think about it, if someone got stripped of all the mem they've been carrying and then got derezzed, then... oh my god that's a vicious punishment to inflict.
Memory in the game is a scarce resource, but in the real world what it allows is kind of taken for granted. So I'd like to ask: what's the experience of a user like if they have little, or even no, access to external memory? Do they experience time at all? Is it like waking up in the same day every day, not knowing a thing about the last day? Maybe like one of the people in Groundhog Day that don't experience the loops? Do they have a name? Or a favourite anything? How much of World can they process with only their built-in RAM?
"Rez Queue" is how I will be referring to it as well now. I suppose I never really noticed as I am far less pedantic, apparently.
Though... Maybe it could be a heap? Do you think that admin deliberately keeps the worst offenders there the longest?
I love Oswald and Alice so much and sincerely hope I'm allowed to be bi because Alice ;w;
Everyone in the party is an absolute blast, I can tell how everyone fits into the five man band (that's a compliment), and the storyline suddenly going in that direction really did get me hooked.
