I'm adding a tab for damage types (fire, electricity, smoke, etc.) to my online reference. Are there any types outside of Street Magic and the core book that I need to make sure get on there?

Not that I can remember, but I have to congratulate you both on an awesome reference page and on remembering Radiation, which I always forget about. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/nyahnyah.gif)

I would have forgotten it to, but the players had to deal with a nuclear spirit blasting them with it last week. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

There was two of them actually, though only one at a time. The first was weaker (Force 5), and took the sniper out of the fight with one hit. The second was stronger (also force 5, but inside a rating 3 domain). It never hurt anyone because its 21 dice couldn't hit. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Radiation is probably one the scariest types of damage you can find, yeah. It's a good thing it's not as ubiquitous as good old electricity.

Yeah, only sound is scarier. Though 3 turns in our combats might as well be 10 minutes, so they're really the same.

There's the Essence Drain critter power, but it's nowhere near as scary because it can't be used in combat.

Would you imply some kinds of social "modifiers" if a mage would use radiation-spells and somebody recognizes it? Is it recognizable at all? Is there a visible effect? The damage itself looks very interesting and i assume that (like with the acid-effect) you only have the instand effects, no long-time-radiation. So it would kill VERY effectively (quite like a direct combat spell), silent and nasty. Do i forget something?

I'd think a mass murdering mage would have social modifiers regardless of how he did it, but if people knew it was toxic (and knew why that mattered) then they'd definitely be higher.

Yeah thats the reason for:
If you fuck with toxic shamans always use anti-Rad!

As a matter of fact, any kill with radiation damage might lead to murder. Because of exeptional cruelty.

James,

I noticed a small error:
Combat -> The Turn -> Turn Sequence -> 3.A.
"May declare one Free Action per combat turn."
Should read:
"May declare one Free Action per action phase."

See SR4 p135 Action Phase paragraph 1, unless it has been changed in a later printing. I haven't spent the money ot rebuy the newer book. I have however added the Erratta to my existing books.

Sorry if this seems nitt-picky, but I just wanted to let you know. If I see any others I'll let you know.

By the way... AWESOME site!

I may be wrong, but isn't metal elemental effect resisted with impact armour +2. Your chart says impact +5, but again, I might have missed an errata somewhere.

It was +5 even in SR4, it was just that the Tables were wrong. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Hey James. Love the online resource. I open just the main frame on my iPad during games. Very handy.

Any chance you could add the Edge rules/costs to the Game Concepts tab?

I see. Only recently got a hold of a SR4A core book, so still trying to catch up.
