Is this a problem? What should be done, if anything?
Give your players a one-time-use, super badass, over the top spell scroll. Hell, you can even homebrew it!
Am I crazy?
No, watch what happens when a player KNOWS they're carrying a "Summon Pit Fiend" spell scroll that basically has the potential to destroy a town.
My players are watching their backs more closely, constantly trying to avoid being searched, and making damn sure they don't get pickpocketed.
They know if they lose this spell scroll, they may very well have to fight the pit fiend.
It wasn't something I thought through very much, but throwing this in has created so many interesting little developments.
Just a rant about the worst part of doing Scorched Earth. I don’t regularly wear PA or the Chinese Stealth Suit, so generally I get irradiated to hell. Even when I can get out in time, it’s annoying. There was one time that I died a couple times, and I lost so much time repeatedly fast traveling back to Dropsite V9 and loading in that I didn’t get enough damage on the Queen (she was killed quite quickly) to get anything other than treasury notes. Or tonight, I died right at the end of the event and dropped my newly awarded flux. I would have had enough time to run over and grab it, but it loaded me into the nuke zone (twice) and someone grabbed it before I could, unfortunately. I’m a bit salty about that.
I love Scorched Earth but the risk of missing out on rewards cause I’ll be re-spawned into the nuke zone repeatedly after dying makes me wary to even join. Anyone relate?
Edit: Yeah, yeah, I’ll go back to wearing the Chinese Stealth Suit lol. I used to always equip it before Scorched Earth until I got lazy with my inventory management a few months ago. Now I wear pocketed marine armor and if I took it off, I’d be so over-encumbered and slow that it would defeat the purpose. I’m going to find some noobs and make it rain plans and health items.
(Edit: Yes, and it should also be a viable weapon against enemies.)
(Edit 2: return of the editor) maybe make it a legendary perk.
My brother is autistic and loves playing video games. FO76 is one of his all time favorites. Despite many attempts he hasn't completed a successful nuke run. He has a habit of running out of ammo. He is also always low on or out of stimpacks/food/water. But not this time. I spent the last few days scavenging for junk to make loads of ammo, and I could cure the world with the number of health aids I possess. Tonight is the night, folks. I know it! (we're on xbox one)
ETA: We are both in Texas (CST), so we still have a few hours til launch time. I'm his older sister and we've always had a special bond. He's my favorite human on this planet. I've tried to reply to everyone, but I apologize if you got missed!
Edit 2: Y'all. It.took.an.hour. It was a very long hour. How many waves of assaultrons can one endure? BUT HE DID IT! MY BROTHER LAUNCHED HIS FIRST NUKE! We hit the mine and immediately realized we weren't prepared for another event, so we shut things down for the night. He'll talk about this for days. I'm so proud of him! 10 or so minutes after we finished, we got the notification that servers are going down for maintenance in 30 minutes. Sheesh, that was too close.
Thank you all for being so rad and encouraging. Happy New Year's!
Destiny alluded to some really fucked up shit Bob has done that he wouldn't want exposed.
I propose that this statement is as harmful as a false rape accusation looking at the effect of both actions. Especially considering the reach Destiny has on the internet. Therefore Destiny should drop the nuke or apologize for it.
Thanks for coming to my TED talk.
Harem drama 5/7
Edit: Finally the banhammer came for me. Not much lost for me as Destiny looks really bad this drama that I can' t support this.
Kinda sad cause I liked him in the past when he was coaching Jimmy and baiting CombatEX sniping his stream.
