Re: Hidden thread shennanigans
Y'know, if Moses wants to wander back and help his suddenly-brave buddy, I don't think anyone could stop him. He's like a Clydesdale like that.

Just want to say that Moses is being all kinds of awesome. I'm just waiting for Art to get a chance to post before doing anything more.

Moses is just fun to play. :-)
And sorry Art, I got carried away there, a little.
But Moses still has two slots open for his "Flock" edge, so there's some preachin' to be done!

Re: Hidden thread shennanigans
@ Logan:

Gatling pistols fire differently than normal guns. They always fire their full RoF, and each shot takes 2 bullets. The relevant rules are below:

Savage Worlds Deluxe book:
Automatic Fire
Automatic weapons fire much faster—and inherently differently—than regular firearms. To attack with a full-auto weapon, roll a number of Shooting dice equal to the weapon’s Rate of Fire. Compare each die separately to the Target Number to see if it hit. If the weapon has a RoF of 3, for example, a Wild Card rolls three Shooting dice plus a Wild Die and uses the best three results. Note that Wild Cards roll their Shooting dice plus a Wild Die. They still can’t hit with more shots than the weapon’s Rate of Fire, however.

►►Recoil: Fully automatic fire is typically inaccurate because of the recoil between each shot. Subtract 2 from the Shooting roll when firing full-auto (ignore the penalty when firing a single shot with such a weapon). The Rock and Roll! edge negates this.

►►Full-Auto and Ammo: This system is somewhat abstract so that we don’t have to roll dice for every single bullet (though we treat them as such for game purposes). This means that each die rolled on full-auto represents a number of bullets equal to the weapon’s Rate of Fire when counting ammo, even though only one “bullet” can hit and cause damage from that die. Firing all three dice with a Thompson gun (Rate of Fire 3), for example, consumes 9 bullets. Most automatic weapons can be set to fire full-auto or single shot. Unless a weapon says otherwise, you can fire a single shot (and also ignore the automatic fire penalty of –2).


Deadlands book:
Gatling weapons cannot fire single shots and must fire at their full Rate of Fire.


So you can't fire a single shots, your penalty is 2 points higher, you get one more attack, and each shot eats up 4 bullets total.

Jackie Wells is a Mad Scientist with the bolt power with the trapping of a Gatling pistol (which is why she can fire single shots). She doesn't have an actual Gatling pistol.

Cool. Were you going to make a second healing roll? You can, in fact, get to both the bleeding characters, and you have 2 actions thanks to Quickness.

Sorry for the slow posting...I'm starting CDL training next month, and I've been running around the last few days getting things ready. Posting is going to slow down for March.

New Edge!
Since we have a lot of characters who are interested in the Ghost Dance, I'd like to show you all how I'm handling it. If you have any ranks in Knowledge (Ghost Dance) from earlier in the game, you may convert them to this Edge.

Ghost Dancer
Requirements: Novice, Arcane Background (Shamanism), Spirit d8+, Tribal Medicine d6+, receive instruction for 1d6+1 days from a shaman with this Edge.

Followers of the Ghost Dance are told they must perform the ritual until the dead rise again. The ceremony must be performed until the dancers collapse from exhaustion, but the stories are true—the ritual can banish fear, raise the dead, and tear the Harrowed asunder. The Ghost Dance can be performed by anyone (as a show of solidarity, for example) but it only has supernatural effects if it is led by a shaman who knows the secret, precise ritual actions.

There are two forms of the Ghost Dance. One is for contacting the spirits for advice about the future, gaining wisdom in exchange for putting their physical well-being at risk. The shaman gains the vision quest power, but in addition to the time it takes to call on the vision the shaman also suffers a level of fatigue commensurate to the cost in Power Points (Fatigued for 3pp, Exhausted for 5 pp, Incapacitated for 10 pp). This fatigue is potentially fatal, though the shaman has an opportunity to pass on the vision he gained before he expires. Otherwise, the fatigue heals at a rate of 1 level per day.

The second form has greater effects. The dance takes five days. Everyone in the village must participate, even those traveling in war parties or hunting bands. At the end of each day’s performance every participant makes a Vigor roll. Those who succeed are Exhausted (Fatigue –2, removed by a good night’s sleep) and collapse until the next morning, when they start dancing again. Those who fail are Incapacitated by Fatigue for 1d4 days and cannot rejoin the dance.

Anyone can aid the Ghost Dance by performing the ritual dance and making a Vigor roll at the end of each day. Characters with the Arcane Background (Shamanism) Edge who participate for the whole ceremony (but don’t know the Ghost Dance's secrets) can make a single Tribal Medicine roll at the end of the dance. Each success and raise adds +1 to the leader’s Tribal Medicine roll. Character with this edge add their successes and raises to the leader's roll directly.

At the end of five days, the leader makes a single Tribal Medicine roll to gauge the ritual’s effectiveness, modified by the rolls of any shamans still aiding the ritual. For each success and raise on the roll, the leading shaman may do one of the following things:

  • Lower the Fear Level by 1.
  • Add +1 Grit to a dead hero for the purposes of the character coming back Harrowed. (If Grit is 10 or more, the character is fully resurrected).
  • Make an opposed Spirit roll against a Harrowed’s manitou to drive it out and lay the Harrowed to rest for good.
  • Open a portal to the Hunting Grounds, which lasts for one day per success and raise invested in this option.
  • Give everyone involved a vision as per the vision quest power, with the power of the vision dependent on the number of successes and raises used on this option.

Re: New Edge!
Because of the windstorm you are blinded, and he's dropped the shot glass that you were keeping an eye on, so yes. You'd need to get out of the Windstorm area and succeed on a Notice check (-6) to locate him again. The dark-haired girl you can see just fine (well, you will once you get out of the blinding wind).

Re: New Edge!
Technically, he has both Crazy Horse's Coup Stick (a relic) and also has a war club Crazy Horse gave him (which he modified). They are still two separate objects.

Coup stick:



War club:



Though without the point, because Moses stripped it off.

In reply to Tan Xiaohan (msg # 914):

Ah, yeah it was. Which makes Moses calling it "Crazy Horse's war club" even more inaccurate.
