1) Can you fire three Bolts at the same target in one round? The wording doesn't seem to indicate it, but I don't know if there would be a balance issue. It would certainly help with high-toughness enemies...

2) Is the Parry bonus for Rapier cumulative? Say 1 rapier in each hand gives a total +2 bonus to Parry? I would think so, especially since it makes sense from a cinematic point of view.

Yes - as a matter of rule - for the first one.

Yes - as a matter of interpretation - for the second one.

I think fencing people might disagree on the second one, but as far as cinematic style gaming goes, I'd say yes also. You only get the bonus if you say ha-HA! once per round.

There's a card game from Fantasy Flight called Mag-Blast that's a lot of fun; its a spaceship combat game. Whenever you fire a laser blast, though, you have to make a sound effect or the shot doesn't count... Seriously, its right there in the rules!

lol that reminds me of this card game thwaak has called elixir, where every player has to choose a wizard name, and if you call someone by their regular name instead, you have to give them one of your cards or something. God I hated that game!

I'm reminded of Feng Shui (the Shadowfist RPG) where pump action shotguns did extra damage if you spent one action shot to pantomime racking a shell while making a "KA-CHINK" sound effect.

Sounds like Hastur in "Cults Across America" - say his name, pay the guy who's got him. Smile

Heehee. It's been too long since I've played Feng Shui. My 1st edition rulebook is looking a little worse for wear, but maybe I'll risk wearing it out a little more just to hash out a few house rules for a SW FS homebrew campaign... After we're done Evernight and playtesting Hearts of Steel, of course. Cool
