First things first! If anyone is starting an Ex3 game and want a Zenith, or any other Caste for a Perfect Circle, let me know!
Whatever version of Adobe Reader is current?
Some of the Charms are randomly garbage.
Forget Adobe, FoxIt, Sumatra, Qu and Mu PDF are basically better. I've tried them on different devices.
Also, which Charms are those? I'm trying to compile a list.
*chuckles* Might be a bit of each. The group I was playing with, we'd all been playing together for years, over a dozen different games, so we're pretty used to each other's ways by then, and rotated amongst 3 GMs, so we all got to play. We ran a sort of episodic format, ranging from a couple of sessions to a couple of months per story.
I've got a group I've been playing for years, too
Exactly because we've been playing for years, I know some of them would go for shiny gifts from the gods, while others go for hyper-attributes. Which, as you know, is a break point if you want any sort of group cohesion.
Also, don't dash my hopes! You have to be that much better at GMing, I say
This wasn't supposed to be "the beta to the release." This was supposed to be everything but the final cover, and if there were any errors they were supposed to be so small that they'd only be caught by having thousands of people looking.
Also, the quality of the art (plagiarism issues aside) is depressing. There's good stuff, but it's the laughably awful stuff that stands out.
How long have we been waiting? This is the best they could do? I want my money back, or at least I want to downgrade to PDF-only.
My inner cynic whispered to me to go for PDF-only years ago, but for people like you, I hope Onyx Path would change at least most of the downright ugly pictures
Also, there's at least one good news: the thing doesn't have a "how to create a campaign" section. Given how bad White Wolf advice on GMing has been, historically, I sincerely applaud that decision!
