Shinobigami Errata Part 1
I read through the Replay portion of the second Shinobigami book and it pumped me up for more Shinobigami. I don’t think I’ll be able to run a game of it this month, but I keep imagining how awesome a Halloween themed game would be.
The first part of the rules section of the book is a bunch of errata. Here are the first couple of pages, including a brand new Ougi and some clarifications on the way Fumbles work. I’m still not 100% sure on some of the terms I’m going to settle on, but here’s what I’ve got for now.
The following are changes to the rules found in the Basic Rulebook. If you plan on using the additional rules found in this book, please make sure to use these rules changes.
1.01 Errata Concerning Resolution
The following are changes to the rules pertaining to Resolutions.
1.01.01 Resolution Types
These rules changes apply to the Action Resolutions that occur at the end of a Drama Scene after the scene has been acted out.
First, the Scene Player must choose between Information, Life Point, and Emotion before the Action Resolution occurs. On a successful Action Resolution, the effect of the chosen Resolution occurs. For more information on these effects, please see the Basic Rulebook, page 199.
The type of Resolution that occurs depends on the Scene Player’s choice; Life Point becomes a Recovery Resolution, Information becomes an Information Resolution, and Emotion becomes an Emotion Resolution.
1.01.02 Fumble Value
During a Resolution, a result on a roll of 2d6 that is the same or lower of a set value is considered a Fumble. This set value is called the Fumble Value.
During Drama Scenes and during the Plot phase of a Battle Scene, the Fumble Value is 2. At any other portion of a Battle Scene, A character’s Plot Number becomes their Fumble Value.
1.01.02.01 The Increase of Fumble Value Due to Cost
The way that Cost is used when using Support Ninpo during a Drama Scene has changed.
When a Ninpo with a determined Cost is used during a Drama Scene, please raise the Fumble Value for the Assigned Skill Resolution by the same number as the Cost
1.02 Ougi Errata/Additional Rules
The errata for effects of each Ougi are as follows.
The new Ougi type Additional Ninpo is also available to be acquired. Each Ougi acquired may be used once per Drama Scene and once per round of a Battle Scene.
-Critical hit: This Ougi can be used instead of an attack. Choose 1 character that is 1 Plot Number away or less. That character chooses 4 Skill Categories at random; those Life Points are lost.
-Radial Attack: This Ougi can be used instead of an attack. Choose any characters 3 Plot Numbers away or less. All characters hit by this attack suffer 2 points of damage. Those hit can choose which Art Type/Skill Categories suffer the damage.
-Perfect Success: This Ougi can be used before you roll a Resolution. You succeed on the Resolution. This is not a Special and if an Achievement Value is required, it is treated as 10.
-Immortal Body: This Ougi can be used any time you take damage. You recover Life Points equal to the roll of 1d6 minus the # of times this Ougi has been used during this game (to a minimum of 0). In addition, any status effects are also healed.
-Impenetrable Defense: This Ougi can be used when any character loses a Life Point. The effect that causes the Life Point loss is nullified.
-Resolution Meddling: This Ougi may be used when another character makes a Skill Resolution. Turn one die into a 1.
-Additional Ninpo: When this Ougi is acquired, choose 2 Attack or Support Ninpo that is available to your character. These Ninpo are treated as being acquired by your character. The Assigned Skills for the Ninpo acquired by this Ougi are the same as this Ougi’s Hidden Skill. When you use the Ninpo acquired by this Ougi, any other characters in the same Scene as you can attempt an Insight Check. On a success, those characters receive this Ougi’s Information. From that point on, those characters can attempt an Ougi Break against the Ninpo acquired by this Ougi. When such an Ougi Break is successful, the effects of these Ninpo are nullified.
