really? i had not thought of it as subjective, but i think i see your meaning and point. i had thought that the numeric value of the noetic weight would prevent too much opinion versus concrete conflict resolution, but i suppose the process of validating noetic weight if challenged does effectively...
I'm hoping that my proposed rule of allowing other players to 'weigh in' on a given conflict will factor into the GM's decision.
Perhaps such guidance should be made explicit in a rule or rules for GM'ing.
Also, the fact that noetic weight is a numerical value, has in effect the same result...

What are you looking for?:
Ultimately, I'm looking for a group of players that would be interested in a long-term campaign. I enjoy world-building, so eventually I would have to begin making homebrew adventures in my in-the-works setting. I wouldn't necessarily have to DM, as long as someone would be comfortable doing so. Whatever it takes to have the group meet up and throw dice.
I got my start in role-playing games at the tender age of five years old. I discovered my older brother's "Red Box" Dungeons & Dragons set before I was even in kindergarten, and although I got beat up for digging in his room, I would have to surmise that gaining a lifelong hobby from that exploration made it totally worthwhile.
I started DM'ing D&D around 2000 while on active military duty, spanning 3e, 3.5 and 4e games, as well as playing in numerous campaigns run by friends across the world. I have also participated in OWoD, Pathfinder and Traveler campaigns as well. I currently have a group of friends that I gained simply from searching for other table-top RPG players in my area, and while we currently are on hiatus from two different campaigns due to conflicting schedules, we are always looking for additional players.
