(Actually, if you ever read any of the Samurai Cat series, one of his first crossover adventures involves a strangler who uses goat string cheese)
That is a skill which could actually be applied to a game though.

W.P. String Cheese* or W.P. Tactical Nuclear Mortar(which would probably fall under Heavy Megadamage Weapons or Weapons Systems anyway)?

This is why you don't see me writing up silly WP skills right and left. Much of what would be written is redundant.

SG the GM: "Okay...*sigh*....that's the fifth time you've killed somebody with a pretzel, Brad, and the other players are getting sick and tired of it. New house rule: use of 'W.P. Pretzel' does NOT gain you any exp. ANNNDDD before you ask, that also applies to 'W.P. Bubble Gum' and 'W.P. Cheetos'."

WP Pretzel got me to wondering whether there is a skill for using curved two-ended blades such as a bat'leth. It combines elements of a sword and a staff, so I was wondering how you would handle such a weapon in a game.

The fan fiction/fanon for R1/2 has yielded an INSANE variety of martial arts and W.P.s.*..When creating new martial arts forms, I bear that in mind.

*Including Martial Arts Junk Food(which actually does use Cheetos as a weapon), Netsurfing, Apathy, Flatulence, Accounting, Construction, Hairdressing, Performance Art, etc....
But as I've stated earlier, the Hoka series of sci-fi stories actually has an alien culture that uses giant tiddlywinks as weapons...only they're manhole cover sized and made of heavy bronze.

WP Blunt pretty much covers this though.

You can get a copy via amazon.com if it helps.

Actually, it's Rifter #32, not 22.

You should also be able to find it in PDF format through locations like DriveThruRPG.

Thanks T. I might buy the PDF and the paper copy depending on my funds.

Hey I was checking out the Netbook of Skills and saw Nanotechnology and Nanomanufacturing under the Mechanical skills. Are those official skills in one of the books or are they just fan-creations?

I'd have said Splicers, but only the Technojackers would have this skill and for them it's instinctual....but a check of the book shows only 'Machine Technology', so it's fan-creation.

Throwing your voice (I cannot spell the actual name if my life depends on it)
It’s pretty much what it said it is.
Chance of success:25+pp+4% per level.

Ventriloquism.
It's been done.
First appeared, to the best of my knowledge, in the Robotech adventure module 'Ghost Ship'.. then System Failure and the Rifts Game Master Guide.
Skill proficiency is 16%+4% per level of experience.
Physical Prowess has NOTHING to do with it(Ventriloquists are not known as Olympic-grade gymnasts or physical acrobats).

And if you do try to describe something that you know has a better name for it, do some online research to find the proper spelling(it helps with working in the rest of it). You never know; your life MAY depend on it.
