This is something I will have to remember. I fully plan to use a very HQ style of things on the Hero Plane etc and I will have to remeber the problems of changing between the varieties of supernatural movement.

Thank you.

And that is why I'm trying to drill down here. The mechanics aid in delivering a particular look and feel to the gameplay. I get things from aspects of RQ that I do not from HQ and vice versa. What I'm trying to do is get this fusion of rules right for my group. That way I can concentrate on the stories I want to tell, knowing that the gameplay will reinforce the messages in the narrative.
