I'm surprised, I've always seen it run that criticals increase the save DC regardless of the save type.
Seems like a move that would make ref/fort/will afflictions less appetizing.

Looks like the designer thought that way too.

It's something that was fixed for 3rd edition as well. The 3E book always references "Save DC" instead of "damage."

So true. If this was 3e, I wouldn't even have thought twice about it...but 2e rules and 3e rules are incompatible in many respects, so applying 3e reasoning to a 2e game isn't always the appropriate course of action.

So... apparently we're moving. That's a thing.

So, I started a thread for the game, and that's great and all. I went ahead with posting responses there, but, uh... even though I was able to create the thread with no trouble, the second post evoked a message saying that I would need a moderator's approval, so... this is obviously off to a great start.

Yeah, it's a bit of a disappointment so far.
A lot of people can't even log in yet.

Hopefully they work out the bugs soon.

Yeah, I've been waiting for the word to come down that A) we must go now, now, NOW!! or B) they've got the bugs worked out.

I've got 3 games to move over when the time comes and I'd like the transition to be as headache free as possible...if possible.

Yeah, I'm busy saving each page of the IC thread, in case we need it. I'm not too thrilled about the reset on this. :(

FYI, I still haven't been able to get logged in on the new site. If it goes on for too much longer, I'll just make a new account.

Mwa ha ha, my evil IT Penguins have foiled Shock again!

Mwa ha- What?

...

The IT Penguins haven't started yet?

Well then who's ruining Shock's day? That's my job, darn it!

Yes, the accounts have been transferred. You need to go to the login page and click the forgot password option. In theory, that emails you a link to reset your password. In reality, it's been hit or miss.

Yeah, I've been following Shock's fight with it in the thread about the move... :(

Thankfully, I can apparently post without needing a moderator to approve everything I say. Hopefully they get Shock's issue resolved swiftly.

if it's not fixed by tonight I'll just register Shock2.0 and be done with it.

Take that Arkrite!

His hand? What about his other hand? Doesn't it get a say in this?

Like michuru, my transition seems to have gone relatively seamlessly...I posted Magnitude's character sheet and origin on the New Vindicators OOC thread, set up the basic Infinite New Vindies threads and commented on a couple things elsewhere.

It saddens me that things have gone so poorly for others when I had to rein in my crotchety-ness over how badly the transition was going for me...since it's actually gone pretty easily. There are some things about the new site I'm going to have to get used to, but I've had it easy thus far.
