BESM (Besm) Third Edition: Mark C. MacKinnon, David L. Pulver: : Books
Happy to have to thir but it was in a bit worst condition then advertised. I had owned a PDF version of this manual, but had wanted a physical one so that I did not have to pass my laptop around to my friends. I have to say that I was not expecting the quality presenting within these pages.
The colors are much more vibrant that I had seen in the PDF, and the paper is quite sturdy. I was surprised, because I had seen the earlier editions of this series and they are all small soft covers, while this one is quite normal sized with a hard cover. This series is quickly becoming a favorite for me and my friends to use with roleplaying stuff.
At first, it can be a bit overwhelming to look at; bem, throughout the book, the sidebars help break things down a bit more for you to help you understand everything a little better.
If you have played 2nd. The second thing you’ll notice is that you now want to roll high on your 2d6 roll for those of you that never played the first two editions, you always wanted to roll low. An average target number for a check that you should have minimal trouble succeeding at is a However, a lot of the power have either been re-written, or eliminated all together.
Dynamic Sorcery is now the only magic option, and it is even more broken than before. Magic thord is gone, as is psionics. However, all attributes now have a maximum amount of ranks you can put into them, as detailed on the attributes page.
Skills for the most part are the same; a lot of skills got merged with other areas and have been cleaned up. All the combat skills are gone now, and are instead powers, helping to increase those abilities bes. Getting extra specializations is easier now, costing only one extra point for TWO extra specializations. In the skills section, it also gives a list of what skills will cost in different genres. The default entry is the multi-genre, in case you’re not sure what you want to run or if you don’t see your genre listed.
Defects are still there, and are really unchanged from 2nd Edition. One of thirv greatest additions to the game, however, is the template system. In the book, there is a section that tells you how many points it costs to apply a pre-generated template to your character, effectively turning them into one of those things.
BESM Third Edition – Adventures in Arcadayn
There’s class templates, such as wizard, priest, samurai, detective and racial templates like woolen, spider-demons and vampires. All the templates tell you how many points they cost, what attributes they give you, what skills if any they give you and what defects they give you if any.
I knew that when this book first came out, that it wouldn’t last long, seeing as how Guardians of Order the company that produced B. White Wolf got the rights to publish the material, but not do anything more than that. I immediately snagged my copy as soon as I could.
If you ever do find yourself with an opportunity to get a hard copy of the B. If you like a game that’s light on rules and dice rolling, and more heavy on rp elements and story, then this is the system for you. The Third and Sadly Final Edition. How do I put this? This book makes any storyline possible, any ability ever imagined can be done, this book is as limitless as the genre its about.
Keep in mind this comes at a minor price. This is really not a beginners book into role-playing. Although it does give you a grasp of role playing if you are not used to complicated rolling procedures it shouldnt be used as a game book.
If that is the case, it still makes a great resource book for comming up with stories. If you wish to put the time into it to make it your primary book it can be most worth it. Ok, first off, I had a hard copy of this book and sold it off, why you ask?
Well it really is nothing more than the exact same thing as the Authority Handbook, thats far cheaper in price to get or even Silver Age Sentinels, so why bother with another book just because it has anime pictures in it, not to mention the chart typos. See all 7 reviews.
