    Is Kimon purely comprised of Oni?

    Yeah, it's more of a melting pot. We've definitely got some Chinese stuff mixed in with the Japanese stuff.
  2. A hat? Pshaw. I prefer to emulate the masters.
  3. It's also worth noting that the designers play the game, so it's not like we're relying entirely upon public opinion to figure out the power levels of various things.
  4. I mean, technically Malifaux has never been Victorian; it's Edwardian. The Victorian period ended on January 22, 1901, with the death of Queen Victoria. The M1E core 1.5 book started the timeline at 1901, at the dawn of the Edwardian era, and now we're up to 1908.
  5. The TTB Core Rules also talk about the Piper's Plague and the Event.

    Holes in Ten Thunders

    I've always understood it to mean "Negative Play Experience," at least going back to my CCG days. If you're intending for it to mean "New Player Experience," then it will obviously mean something different.

    Holes in Ten Thunders

    NPE is closer to "a thing that saps all the fun and enjoyment out of a game." It's less about whether or not you can win the match (though that's certainly an element of it).

    Friday Preview - Horomatangi

    They're from one of the original Horomatangi myths. And they're absolutely a Shobijin reference as well, because... Kaiju.

    Know-It-All Uber Mage

    The character can only fail a duel once, so no. Reflipping the card is just like rerolling a die; you're re-randomizing the process, rather than making a completely new duel. I'll toss it into the FAQ to clarify.

    Know-It-All Uber Mage

    This is actually on my list for May errata! Essentially, Know-It-All is changing to once per Challenge to prevent this sort of loop.

    Alpha strikes too poweful?

    This is correct. Buried models are not considered to be in play, and Sisters in Fury and Sisters in Battle both only buff Sisters in play.

    Questions about how the characters were made?

    To clarify, when you are saying Skills, you mean Talents. Skills are things like Alchemisty, Toughness, etc. Some of the Talents are hidden due to lack of space. For instance, one of Kimber's starting Talents gives her the Critical Strike Trigger. Instead of listing a Talent that says "Kimber gains Critical Strike," she just has Critical Strike. Body and Mind Aspects (i.e., stats) do not always equal zero. None of the characters have Aspects above 4, though two of them do have a stat of 4 (which is possible but rare during character creation). Characters with a Skill rank of 3+ during character creation gain a Trigger. After that, they can spend Experience Points to learn additional Triggers after a Skill reaches Rank 3 and again at Rank 5. Due to space constraints on the pregens, not every Rank 3 Skill has been given a Trigger. Additionally, as noted above, some Talents give Triggers to characters. Shige has a Chemist Talent that grants the Infect Trigger to all of her attacks, for instance.

    2" range of needle fist?

    It's intrinsic to the weapon.
  14. When they play temporary alt characters in Act 3, they will play the Act 3 versions of those characters.
