I've discussed this from a different angle before...

I have a PC in my game who is a horse trainer.
What would be the skill she would use to Calm animals, etc.?
I'm thinking Influence, maybe capped by her ride, or training (craft) skill.

Are there any RQ6 books that have info on beat handling?

Had anyone tried Elite yet? If so, how is it?
I'll be busy with Batman next week, but Elite had me really tempted.

I'm working up some stats for generic Hyborian NPC's.
What is considered an average level in a professional skill? (For someone of that profession)

I'm guessing around Base value +30%

+Hannu Kokko​That helps a lot, thanks for posting it!
It also falls pretty well into line with +Dillon Burke​ 's method.

Question: Does Monster Island have a lot of this type of generic but extremely useful information?

What rules/options are available for a player who wants an animal companion (wolf, giant lizard, tiger, etc) for their PC?
Any GM advice for this?

Just picked up RQ6. Haven't played RQ since the first (boxed set), but this edition looks fantastic!
I'm going to use it to run a Hyborian campaign, so my PC's will be facing mostly human opponents. My question is, is there a good resource for quick NPC stats?

Good suggestions!
Has anyone put together a resource of historical or fictional combat styles?

My next character is going to be a Necromancer based on Paul Bearer (of WWE fame), and his "skeletal" minion will be the Undertaker.

OUT will probably be something like "Bearer of the Urn of Undeath"
I'm thinking he stole it from the Lich King or something, so negative Icon relations... or maybe he is a servant of the Lich King.

Oh, that's awesome, but I think he totally stole that urn from the Lich King, and so is always looking over his shoulder, yet trying to convince everyone he's super-powerful and that the Urn was TOTALLY his idea!

Battlefield fans, what is your take on Battlefield Hardline?

I haven't played any Battlefield games before, but I was thinking of giving this one a try. However, I've seen some negativity about it online recently. People saying it looks bad or should have been a mod/expansion.

Are you excited or do you think it looks bad?

Cool. I don't normally play online shooters, but I think I'm going to pick this one up for something different.
Thanks for the info +Tom G

What if you don't have a Professional Skill? Can you still default to the base?
This seems most important with Acrobatics, where fighting aboard a rocking ship can cause combat skills to be capped at Acrobatics.

I'd go case-by-case based on what seems reasonable.  In the shipboard combat example, I'd be really uncomfortable with taking the hard-line "no unskilled use of a professional skill" approach because that doesn't mean you're "bad at shipboard combat", it means "unless you're an acrobat or have specifically trained in shipboard combat you are utterly useless and have absolutely no chance (0% cap) of doing anything under those conditions".

Seduction is also a good example of one that should be usable at some level without training, unless you expect to see humanity die out within a generation or two.

What skill would a PC use for Intimidation?
(Or would it be an unopposed Willpower roll by the target, as per the creatures Intimidate rule?)

How compatible is RQ 6 with Mongoose RQ? 
I'm eyeing Land of the Samurai to add to my Samurai RPG collection, but I only want it if I can someday run it with RQ 6.

First off I need to get the RQ6 rules down, and start my home Hyborian campaign. (Which is going to be a Game of Thrones in Hyboria)
Then I think I will buy Land of the Samurai and convert Blood & Honor to the RQ6 rules. Then I think I'll dig into working up some real and fictional sword styles to RQ6 Combat Styles.

It would be awesome to start some sort of RQ6 samurai database though.

Has anyone else been experiencing the Xbox One console and kinect lights flashing for a couple of minutes after shutting down lately? 
Anyone know what causes this? I've read that it means the system is updating, but I got the last system update a few days ago, and none of my games appear to be updating. I tried a hard reset and it shut down the first time after, but now it's doing the flashing again.

Anyone have any ideas?

+Budski GB​ No, I'm not.
The problem seems to have been resolved with another hard reset. Worked fine all week afterwards.
