We’re revising Grey Ranks, adding some clarification and streamlining a bit. There will be no major changes, but I’m considering small rules tweaks. For example this:
Acting Your Age
If your character is fifteen, always lower your personal scene die down by one size and raise your mission scene die size up by one. If your character is seventeen, always lower your mission scene die size by one and raise your personal scene die size up by one.
Has this rule been religiously enforced in your games? I know I’ve completely forgotten it at times without any ill effect. I’m thinking of re-writing it to make it an optional trick players of 15 or 17-year-olds can selectively employ. Or maybe getting rid of it entirely – I think age differentials inside the Crew get played up without any mechanical incentive. What do you think?
