[Seattle Go Center] Postgresql early education needed

Folks,

I am trying to get started with Postgres because that is the database
used for the Go Congress data, and I want to be able to get adhoc
management information from it.

I am experience with database programming and SQL, but need help to get
into the program. The tutorials aren't getting me there.

Am hoping one of you out there can spend an hour or two and get me up
and running.

Best,

[ORE] Re: Weapon damage question

Are you keeping in mind/remembering that the damage isn't a separate roll? 

On Wednesday, September 5, 2012 7:05:49 PM UTC-4, brotherd wrote:

Hi all,
 
I know this is a rookie question, but it's been wrackin my brain lately.
 
If a character is using a hand weapon, are you supposed to use the weapon's damage alone?
 
Eg. A character with say 8d in Body has a base damage of Shock & Killing for unarmed combat, and adds +1 Shock and +1 Killing for hand weapons. So am I understanding correctly that if he uses say brass knuckles, which does W+1 in Shock, he would ultimately do W+1 in Shock PLUS 1 Shock and 1 Killing (due to Body stat)?
 
If that's the case, wouldn't it be better not to use brass knuckles at all and just do W in S&K damage alone?
 
Thanks fer reading.

Dear Go Center Members,
 
There is a big tournament scheduled in Oregon -- well worth the trip.  Here's the info:
 
 
Portland Go Tournament

October 20-21, 2012 Lewis & Clark College, Portland, OR

Come play SEVEN rounds of AGA-rated Go! That's right, MORE GO THAN
YOU'LL GET IN THE US OPEN! This is a handicap tournament, so you can
expect some exciting, close games no matter your rank.

Strong players (6D+ AGA) may opt instead for the 5-round open
tournament -- all even games, may the best player win!

Top three double-digit kyu players (handicap)
Top youth player (18 and under) (handicap)
Top female player (handicap)
TO REGISTER: Register at
www.goclubs.org. If you entered all of your
personal information last year, it should still be there; you may wish
to update your rank. Email me (
drake@lclark.edu) if you have any
questions.

REGISTRATION FEE: $15 if you've preregistered by SEPTEMBER 20, $25
otherwise, no registration fee for Lewis & Clark students and players
18 and under. ALL players must also either be AGA members (you can
join at the tournament for $30) or pay a one-tournament membership fee
of $10.

All fees are paid by cash or check on the day of the tournament.

LOCATION: Albany 218 and 220 on the campus of Lewis & Clark College.
This is the same location as last year. Maps:

There is a coffee shop (Maggie's) open on campus; Fields Dining Room
is open for lunch and dinner. Info on these establishments can be
found here:

Note that Maggie's doesn't open until noon on the weekend, so if you
need an infusion of caffeine before your first round, bring something
along.

[ORE] Using Tarot with ORE

http://wp.me/p22zOP-4v

Summary: most of the cards in a tarot deck have a terminal digit 0-9,
just like a d10. However, using cards means that you can hold a number
of cards in your hand and optimize what you have, pretty much
elminating any whiff factor for small pools. There's more, but this is
email...

For those of us in sunny Chicagoland, I'll probably be showing this
hack off at ENWorld Chicago Gameday in November:
http://gameday.buzzmo.com/ for info on the event.

I have some ideas of combining pulp supers and the ACW, but that's getting really specialized, and more of a mini-supplement.

That's a cool idea. If you go forward with it, I'd like to hear about it.

[Seattle Go Center] Go Center Now Hiring

Dear Go Center Members,
 
I am pleased to announce that we now have the funds to hire a Saturday Day Manager.  We will be doing our little bit to boost the economy.  We are looking for a neat, friendly and outgoing host for everybody who visits the Center on Saturdays.  The Day Manager should be a good teacher for beginners, but the Day Manager does not have to be a strong player.  This position could be shared (alternating Saturdays). For the full job description, please contact me (Brian Allen).
 
We are also still looking for Go Club teachers.  These positions can have small stipends.  The Kimball Go Club, which has been running for over 15 years, needs a teacher on Fridays, starting at about 2:30.  It is located on Beacon Hill.  The new McDonald International School, not far from the Go Center,  will also be organizing a Go club.  I think the instructor can choose the afternoon for McDonald.  We already have volunteers ready for substitute teaching, so the lead teachers will have some flexibility.  Please let me know if you are interested in helping out.
 
Cheers,
Brian Allen

[ORE] Re: Converting Godlike miracles to Wild Talents (newbie here)

That's funny that you say that, my character referenced here basically comes out of a Wild West background (via the CSA cavalry/guerrillas) before he ends up in London.  Basically, the fish-out-of-water Cowboy in the Big City trope.  It's a character concept I developed in Castle Falkenstein, but easily transfers to TFL/Kerberos Club, or other (pseudo-)Victorian settings.  ;-)

I think in Kerberos, he would function somewhat as a Victorian version of the Punisher, among other things.
(though, in actuality, in this case I started with a semi-sniper concept in Godlike, and sort of backed into this earlier Victorian version of him...)

Re: [ORE] Re: Converting Godlike miracles to Wild Talents (newbie here)

You're welcome!

The whole concept is pretty cool, pulling characters up from This Favored Land/Kerberos Club all the way through Godlike. Though if I ever do the TFL sequel that I've been thinking about (supers in the Wild West), the background may require some fudging to make World War II work out like in Godlike. *S*

I'll take a crack at it. It's been a while since I did any WT
character building but I need to get into more of that for our Repo
Men campaign.

Without Distorting, this is pretty easy. Like Teleportation, it's an
ADU power, with A and U having Range capacity and D having Self
capacity. Then add the Mass capacity to each of these, to handle the
fact that you can teleport a certain mass. Add a "non-living item"
flaw to each quality. Then add an additional U quality for the tagging
ability, since that's one more useful thing the power does. This
second U quality would have the Touch capacity.

You can remove the D if you don't want the character to be able to
defend himself by Fetching items (in other words, the character would
have to "defend" himself by noticing an object and declaring that they
are actively taking the object).

The distortion effect is more of a pain, but just a little. First,
create Distortion as a separate ability. Make it an ADU power. Give it
the Attached flaw (attached to Fetch) and the Augment extra. You don't
have to give it the second "U" since tagging the object doesn't
distort it.

Fetch (7)
Qualities: ADU.
Attacks Extras and Flaws: Non-Living items only (-1), Willpower bid
(-1), Mass capacity (+2). Capacities: range, mass.
Defends Extras and Flaws: Non-Living items only (-1), Willpower bid
(-1), Mass capacity (+2). Capacities: mass, self.
Usefule Extras and Flaws: Non-Living items only (-1), Willpower bid
(-1), Mass capacity (+2). Capacities: range, mass.
Useful Extras and Flaws: Non-Living items only (-1), Willpower bid
(-1). Capacities: touch.

Distortion (12)
Qualities: ADU.
Attacks Extras and Flaws: Attached to Fetch (-2), Augment (+4).
Capacities: range.
Defends Extras and Flaws: Attached to Fetch (-2), Augment (+4).
Capacities: self.
Usefule Extras and Flaws: Attached to Fetch (-2), Augment (+4).
Capacities: range.

Distortion is more expensive than Fetch, but you're only going to buy
a small number of dice in it, and add that to Fetch when you want to
distrot something during the Fetch.

The Multiple Hands power stunt is the tricky part. And it's not that
tricky. Just buy additional levels of U. If your Godlike character
could juggle 5 items, just buy U5. Each additional U level (it's a new
level of Useful, not an additional Useful quality) subtracts a
penalty. So juggling 5 items should normally apply a -4d penalty, but
with U5 the -4d penalty is negated.

The Can't Hurt People part, I'd just make it so you can't attack with
it. You can still defend (by throwing one object in the way of another
object) and you'd still have Useful.

I'd go with Mass as the capacity, since it's only in the local area.
Even though he's not touching the objects, he can't attack with them
at a distance (if you want that, add the Range capacity). I'm also
assuming that to defend he has to concentrate, as the objects are just
floating in the air and not actively trying to guard him.

Telekinesis (9)
Qualities: DU5.
Defends Extras and Flaws: Willpower Bid (-1). Capacity: Self.
Useful Extras and Flaws: Endless (+3), Willpower Bid (-1). Capacity: Mass.

> - Detect (People), out to about 100 yards or so, through obstructions,
> with a longer range (up to a mile or so) if he concentrates (the Close Your
> Eyes And See Power Stunt). Also has the Tracking Extra, along with a Blind
> Spot Flaw.

I'd build it from scratch.

Detect People (4)
Qualities: DUUU
Defends Extras and Flaws: Blind Spot (-1), Willpower Bid (-1). Capacity: Self.
Useful Extras and Flaws: Blind Spot (-1), Reduced Capacity (-1),
Willpower Bid (-1). Capacity: Range.
Useful Extras and Flaws: Blind Spot (-1), Slow (-2), Willpower Bid
(-1): Capacity: Range.
Useful Extras and Flaws: Blind Spot (-1), Willpower Bid (-1). Capacity: Range.

An explanation: The Blind Spot flaw is essentially an If/Then flaw
that says "If the character is in a certain location, the power
doesn't work". The power would be bought with 8 dice, to get about a
mile's range out of it. The first Useful reduces that range to about
100 yards. If the player chooses to "boost" the range, they use the
second Useful instead, which doesn't have the reduced capacity but
does have the slow flaw (takes a round of concentration). And tracking
the target once the roll is made is a useful ability, so it's the
third Useful.

Drop the "D" if you can't use it to defend, just detect.

The Perceive cafeteria miracle works. If you want it "passive" (i.e.
it works without you spending an action on it) give it the Duration or
Endless extra. Superimposed would just be an additional U.

> - the Alert power, for basic danger sense

That's just a U power with the Range capacity and the Endless extra.

Yes.

[ORE] Converting Godlike miracles to Wild Talents (newbie here)

I'm a long-time gamer, but very new to the ORE system.  My entree was via Godlike, and I created my first character in that system.  Since then, I've purchased PDF versions of Kerberos Club and This Favored Land (along with Progenitor and WT 2nd ed.).  I love the idea that my Godlike character was around in the time of the Kerberos Club and This Favored Land (and I'll just hand-wave differences between the settings/systems, as needed).  I'm okay with the idea that some of the powers will adjust somewhat in recreating them in WT terms, but I'm struggling with wrapping my head around the miracle creation concepts and specifics.  Can anyone point me in the right direction for modeling these Godlike powers in the more general WT system?
  • His signature power in Godlike is Fetch, with the Cornucopia Extra and Distort Power Stunt.  (honestly, the only part I'm really jazzed about is the Cornucopia aspect...I could live without the extra boost when Distorting, and even the ability to teleport any object in sight the way the base power allows, if there's an easier/better way to simulate the ability to Fetch tagged objects)
  • Telekinesis, with the Multiple Hands Power Stunt, along with Endless, and Can't Hurt People.  Basically, what I'm looking for here is the ability to manipulate multiple objects in his local environment, and to be able to leave them "hanging" via TK without having to concentrate on them.  (I envision in my head someone walking into his tent, and seeing various items hanging in the air...a book he was reading, his shaving gear, mess kit, etc.)  He merely needs to concentrate on an item to manipulate or move it actively, otherwise it stays where he left it unless he remembers to "put it down".  
  • Detect (People), out to about 100 yards or so, through obstructions, with a longer range (up to a mile or so) if he concentrates (the Close Your Eyes And See Power Stunt).  Also has the Tracking Extra, along with a Blind Spot Flaw.
  • I also had the Perception power, defined as Perceiving "People"...this may be somewhat redundant with the Detect power, above, but I was trying to cover all of my bases.  I saw this one as being a passive counterpart to the Detect's more active usage.  Again, this allows him to see people even though they may be behind cover or obstructions, but only out to the limits of what his (unobstructed) sight might be (at least that's what I was going for).  I had bought this with the Superimposed Extra.
  • the Alert power, for basic danger sense
  • Several Affinity Powers (vs. Fire, Arctic and Underwater environments).  I wasn't really interested in bonus dice when acting in said environments, just the ability to operate in them without damage or undue restriction of action.  Would this be done with Immunity in WT?
Any suggestions of how to build these powers would be much appreciated, and hopefully help me get into the system more readily!  Thanks in advance!

We will also order pizza as usual, if people are interested.  To finish, we have vanilla ice cream with Lee Anne's special berry sauce. 
 
I expect that this will be a big night, and everybody will find a game.

Rules of Online Keno

The game of keno originates from ancient China,
 where it was simply called the Chinese lottery. 
keno is very similar to lotto - the main difference 
is that in keno you will know if you have won or lost
 just a couple of minutes after you have made a keno bet.

I Suggest To play you @

I've just finished moving Arc Dream's main website to a new server, which meant a ton of fiddly coding in the main site and the online store.

Re: [ORE] Getting Around Immunities

Without having a book in front of me I'm inclined to believe the conceptual space of Nullify bypasses immunity as a singular exception. 

I can get behind the metaphysical explanation that the immunity is being nullified as it attempts to resist the foreign power. 

Also, there's an outside chance Zipperneck was out of willpower at the time and his rolled immunity failed.

That's my thinking out loud for the moment. 

-Matt Conlon

On Sep 8, 2012, at 12:43 PM, Hotjets <arkhamalum@gmail.com> wrote:

As has been pointed out, Zipperneck should have been protected from Nullification by his Immunity to everything, if not due to his Heavy Armor, LAR, or his Flight with Defends (which probably didn't beat his attackers 2hd anyway).

I've been thinking about how bypass immunities. The first option is to link an Always On Useful power with an If/Then of only when power X is used for an extra -1. Call the Useful power Bypass Immunity or Ignore Immunity. So, even if your Invulnerable Super-Joe can't have his heart squeezed or mind blasted by Evil Psychic Man's two favorite Non-Physical attacks, EPV can use his Crack Aura NP attack on SJ since it is linked to  Bypass Immunity. This is the approach that makes the most sense to me.

The second possibility is to buy Interference with your Non-Physical attack. This could work, as Immunities seldom have Interference themselves. Have I got this right?

Buying Penetrating for your Non-Physical attack would be very expensive if you plan to confront someone with a bunch of hard dice, like Zipperneck, but might be an option.

I suspect that a clever person could just suggest an Extra that would do this. I'd probably charge +2, just like Non-Physical or Speeding Bullet, but I'd like to hear other ideas about the right cost.

Heck, I'd like any feedback on this subject generally. While I'm willing to criticize ORE at times, it is the main system that I use and I have written very favorable reviews of a couple of the associated world books.

[Seattle Go Center] Visiting Pros, Party, Tournament

Dear Go Players,
 
We have some great events coming up in the next two weeks.  Mr. Hiroshi Yamashiro 9d and Ms. Hiroko Shinkai 5d from the Nihon Ki-in will be visiting from this Thursday Sept. 13 till Sunday Sept 16.  We will have simultaneous games and lectures, and they will be attending our big Anniversary Party on Saturday, Sept 15. 
 
The Anniversary Party will start at 6:00 p.m., and feature a performance by the Koto ensemble "Silk Strings", which gave a wonderful performance at last year's party.  The Go Center will be providing barbeque and some sushi.  We are hoping that members can contribute side dishes, desserts, and beverages.  We will have a banquet permit for beer, wine and sake.  If you can help out, please email me with a note about what you plan to bring. My address is manager@seattlego.org.
There is no charge for this event.
 
One week later, on Sunday, Sept 23, we will have our Anniversary Tournament, with registration at noon at the Go Center.  This is an AGA rated event with a total of $500 in prizes.  The Open Section will have prizes of $150, $75, and $50. The tournament is free for voting members, and players under 18.  It is $10 for all others.
 
As usual, there is more detailed information on our events page.  Just click on an event in the calendar for to get the details.

I suppose Greg messed up either the interpretation of Hyperswimming's

Re: [ORE] Wild Talents: Set my head straight

"I get my set and reassign 4d to Body (mostly for breath-holding) and 6d to Hyperswimming so I can move through the water at 80 yards per round."  Stats (Body, in this case) are always ADU, so you need all three qualities to emulate them.  I think it would have been kosher to to put 6d into Attacks or Defends Qualities on top of that, myself, since Hyperswimming only has Useful, but the 4d are definitely tied up in Body.

[ORE] Getting Around Immunities

As has been pointed out, Zipperneck should have been protected from Nullification by his Immunity to everything, if not due to his Heavy Armor, LAR, or his Flight with Defends (which probably didn't beat his attackers 2hd anyway).

I've been thinking about how bypass immunities. The first option is to link an Always On Useful power with an If/Then of only when power X is used for an extra -1. Call the Useful power Bypass Immunity or Ignore Immunity. So, even if your Invulnerable Super-Joe can't have his heart squeezed or mind blasted by Evil Psychic Man's two favorite Non-Physical attacks, EPV can use his Crack Aura NP attack on SJ since it is linked to  Bypass Immunity. This is the approach that makes the most sense to me.

The second possibility is to buy Interference with your Non-Physical attack. This could work, as Immunities seldom have Interference themselves. Have I got this right?

Buying Penetrating for your Non-Physical attack would be very expensive if you plan to confront someone with a bunch of hard dice, like Zipperneck, but might be an option.

I suspect that a clever person could just suggest an Extra that would do this. I'd probably charge +2, just like Non-Physical or Speeding Bullet, but I'd like to hear other ideas about the right cost.

Heck, I'd like any feedback on this subject generally. While I'm willing to criticize ORE at times, it is the main system that I use and I have written very favorable reviews of a couple of the associated world books.

Re: [ORE] Wild Talents: Set my head straight

First and most importantly, Wild Talents is meant to be DIY. That was specifically the entire purpose of the game. You should change anything in the cafeteria to suit your own style and sensibilities. Just make sure your players are on board so there's no confusion at the table.
 
Statement 1: Starting simple, it's illegal to have more than 10d in
any Miracle, as indicated in the Essential Edition, page 15.

You can't roll more than 10 dice. You can HAVE as many dice as you want. Hence the Saurian Sciences. That 20d+10hd pool is meant to be divided up among a whole lot of smaller dice pools. That saved Ben the trouble of having three 10d or 10hd separate powers all with the exact same extras and flaws.

If you have 10d+10hd in Hurtful Language, you could ditch the HD and still attack with 10d, or you could attack with 10hd to hurt somebody real bad. But you couldn't roll 10d and 10hd at the same time.
 
Statement 2: A character with Variable Effect on several Qualities of
one Miracle is lending dice from the same pool (the Miracle's, not the
Quality's) to any temporary powers created with Variable Effect.

It applies to the power quality that has Variable Effect. Not to any other power qualities.

Statement 3: A Quality with Duration, or any of its sibling Extras,
can have only one instance at any moment.

You can't pile on to one use of the Duration power with another use of it. But you can hit a new target with each use of the power.

Statement 4: Finally, for the purposes of Flaws such as Mental Strain,
"every time you use your power" means "every time you roll to activate
that Quality", not "every round/scene that Quality is active" and not
"every time the most recent set used to roll for that Quality is
re-used".

In general, yeah. Except, as you say in your example, when it no longer becomes a flaw. If you take Permanent and Mental Strain with the idea that you took the Mental Strain that one time when the power activated and then you recovered and you never have to take the damage again, well, that's not a problem for you so it's not worth any points.

[ORE] Wild Talents: Set my head straight

Here's a set of statements about the core rules of Wild Talents.
Please correct me if you think they're wrong.


Statement 1: Starting simple, it's illegal to have more than 10d in
any Miracle, as indicated in the Essential Edition, page 15.

For example, The Saurian Sciences (The Kerberos Club, page 276) is
against the rules with its 20d+10hd available for Variable Effect
artefacts.


Statement 2: A character with Variable Effect on several Qualities of
one Miracle is lending dice from the same pool (the Miracle's, not the
Quality's) to any temporary powers created with Variable Effect.

For example, Adam has 8d in Cosmic Power and can create both a 4d
Attacks and a 4d Defends power, using them simultaneously in one
scene. He cannot have 8d in both at once, or even do non-Variable
stuff with any other Quality when a Variable Effect has tied up all
8d. (This is indicated at <http://arcdream.com/home/?p=1122>.) It
follows that building several Miracles with Variable Effect is much
more powerful than one Miracle with several Qualities, yet, depending
on Permissions, it may cost the same.


Statement 3: A Quality with Duration, or any of its sibling Extras,
can have only one instance at any moment.

For example, Stolze's Hungarian Death Curse
(<http://arcdream.com/home/?p=1122>) can neither be layered onto a
single target twice, nor be active (whether dormant or doing damage)
on more than one person at any moment. Adam could buy two identical
copies of the Curse as separate powers and dual wield, so to speak.


Statement 4: Finally, for the purposes of Flaws such as Mental Strain,
"every time you use your power" means "every time you roll to activate
that Quality", not "every round/scene that Quality is active" and not
"every time the most recent set used to roll for that Quality is
re-used".

For example, Adam automatically sees the future when he's drunk
(Permanent, Always On), and gets a bad headache from this (Mental
Strain) as well as having to spend Willpower (Precognition) to
"determine" the future. Because his power has If/Then (intoxicated),
Adam takes the damage and pays the Willpower every time the
concentration of alcohol in his blood rises past a certain point,
because starting to meet the If/Then condition of his power forces him
to roll for it; the previous set is not recycled.

Correspondingly, Betsy uses bargain-bin Invulnerability with Endless
and Mental Strain. The set she rolls for it is recycled, so it's been
eight months since she took damage for having to activate it. The GM
is starting to wonder if the Flaw is legal in her case.


I realize that some of the ambiguities here may be intentional and up
to the GM's interpretation on a case-by-case basis. I'd like to know
if that is the intent.

[ORE] Re: 1 power: multiple contingencies

If you can get access to Grim War, there's a character in there called "Multiple Meg" who has a similar type of power.

On Saturday, August 18, 2012 6:19:30 PM UTC-5, matt conlon wrote:

I had an idea for a character that summons alternate reality clones of himself (a lot of them, actually collapses adjacent timelines so events across them become normalized from that point until they diverge at the end of the scene, takin the duplicates with them) and in the process they bring varying equipment into the scene. This is an expansion of his first power which was basically Ground Hog's Day (5hd of Aces with an "if/then he must be about to objectively fail a stated action", resulting in a time loop where he tries something again and again until he gets it perfect, if anyone has seen the anime Haruhi Suzumiya and the eternal 8 story it's a lot like that- blessing and curse. Just think of how any times you'd have to roll a 5 die pool to get it to come up all tens and that's how many times he has to do something before the cycle breaks.)

That said I'm wondering: if I have say 6d in Mental Constructs with permanent can I attach it to both the Clone and Minions power, right now I'm thinking of attaching Minions to Clone and Mental Consfructs to both, but does this mean every clone shows up with the same knife and every minion shows up with the same lockpicks or can I have them each pop up with varying equipment, or does Mental Constructs just require enough Mass Capacity in one activation to cover the amount of equipment required and any set will make that much of whatever I need (note: the constructs are flawed down to be "mundane equipment" rather than giant robots and jet packs (well, maybe jet packs but not personal plasma cannons and force field generators)).

Aside: this should be a fun RP element because it isn't always "this" version of the PC activating the power sometimes some other him needs a battalion of selves. It should also be fun when a "normal one" gets pulled in and doesn't know what the hell is going on.

Re: [ORE] Weapon damage question

Eg. A character with say 8d in Body has a base damage of Shock & Killing for unarmed combat, and adds +1 Shock and +1 Killing for hand weapons. So am I understanding correctly that if he uses say brass knuckles, which does W+1 in Shock, he would ultimately do W+1 in Shock PLUS 1 Shock and 1 Killing (due to Body stat)?

Start with the Body damage (Width in Shock for mere mortals) and then add from there for the weapon. So 8d with brass knuckles does Width+1 in Shock and Width in Killing.

[ORE] Weapon damage question

Hi all,
 
I know this is a rookie question, but it's been wrackin my brain lately.
 
If a character is using a hand weapon, are you supposed to use the weapon's damage alone?
 
Eg. A character with say 8d in Body has a base damage of Shock & Killing for unarmed combat, and adds +1 Shock and +1 Killing for hand weapons. So am I understanding correctly that if he uses say brass knuckles, which does W+1 in Shock, he would ultimately do W+1 in Shock PLUS 1 Shock and 1 Killing (due to Body stat)?
 
If that's the case, wouldn't it be better not to use brass knuckles at all and just do W in S&K damage alone?
 
Thanks fer reading.
