    Archer, Basic Pursuit

    Oh great, now I have to redesign the pursuit to incorporate that as a basic mechanic! Thankfully I don’t have much else to do with my time. 😃

    Looking for Background (Pipers Plague, The Event)

    Look into the Breachside broadcast. It has basically anything you would need to know the history of Malifaux with rather enjoyable stories. I believe they can be downloaded from ITunes but I find that Podbean works really well for anything involving podcasts.

    Replaced Moving Target with Called Shot (Which I believe to be an original ability, but can't quite remember).

    Question About Eternal Moment

    A question for anyone who cares to answer. Tara’s passive ability Eternal Moment allows her to reflip the result of any flip made to end the encounter, but can she do so more than once at a time? For instance, round 5 passes, a card is flipped to end the encounter, the encounter ends but Tara relies to keep the game going, the encounter ends. At this point, may she reflip again or does she have to stick with the result generated.

    Funny Stories or Fatemaster Headaches

    While running In Defense of Innocence relatively recently, my players held a rally using a political candidate as a figure head and ended up convincing the entire town to form an angry mob to go out into the desert to hunt the nephilim raiding the town. What the players didn’t realize is that there was more than 2 nephhilim and something closer to a hundred. Needless to say, the players quickly realized their mistake.

    Gambling Suggestions?

    Quote: Into The Bayou Pg. 48 ”To gamble with Zoraida, the character must make a TN 5 Gambling Challenge. On a failure, the character loses the game then and there...” Super easy to incorporate the gambling skill with this. Simply edit this number to represent better more skilled gamblers, or worse ones.

    Gambling Suggestions?

    Something you could do is hold simple card games like blackjack, poker and what not using the rules for gambling with Zoraida. For pay out, I would recommend 2-4 scrip for low stakes games and anything higher for higher stakes.

    Untrained Skills

    May I present some situations where this might make sense. You are Professor Gideon Longfellow, world renowned genius (Intellect 5) who has published many papers on the topic of theoretical physics. You are an incredible artisan, culinary and even engineer, but you just CANNOT sew. No matter how hard you try, you just can’t keep two pieces of cloth together with thread. You understand the concept perfectly, but you just can’t actually do it. Or, you’re Burt Malcolm, a grade school drop out that is practically brain dead when compared to Gideon Longfellow (Intellect -3). However, despite your idiocy, you are surprisingly competent with a needle and some thread (Stitching 5), you’ve woven some nice scarves for your self and a your little brother who is quite a lot smarter than you. And oh the pride you felt when you learned that even the highest society of Malifaux adore your designs. You know basically nothing about fashion, but you uncanny skill in the art of sewing puts you above even Gideon Longfellow in comparison.

    Archer, Basic Pursuit

    It was removed from the General Talents list in the Core Rules, but reappears on the Thunders Archer in the bestiary.

    I forgot about the Euphoria thing, I though the Brilliance condition mostly represented addiction and permanent stains from Brilliance use, my mistake.
  14. Steamtastic Vagabond


    Quick question for fatemasters, how should I handle people who are ON brilliance (Not just addiced)? I’m thinking maybe Brilliance should raise the taker’s intellect by 5, but I would like to hear other’s thoughts.

    Through the Breach FAQ and Errata

    These characters are all subordinate characters, so they’re effectively treated as Fated, whose owner flips cards for them.
