Re: Thread Items

Greetings Anoush, In my experience, there are a few keys to successful thread items. If your players don't have access to many, then those they do have should be notable and exciting. I'm sorry to say, but ranks in knowledge skills aren't particularly exciting. Defense bonuses are useful, but if you...

Re: [ED4] Astral Sense and Astral Targeting

Greetings, It's no problem and I really am happy to help. If your only goal is to perceive astral space, not astrally sense patterns, then there is no need to make any subsequent tests. I'm not generally a fan of analogies because they can quickly lead down a road of useless pedantry (I know I am cu...

Re: [ED4] Astral Sense and Astral Targeting

Without Astral Sense, it lasts Astral Sight rank rounds. Astral Targeting does not affect duration in any way - it just provides a bonus against astrally sensed targets. As a If the adept spends a Strain to renew the talent prior to it ending (effectively losing a turn when looking to maximize the d...

Re: [ED4] Astral Sense and Astral Targeting

Greetings, I'm going to attempt to address your specific questions. My suggestion for right now is to ignore commentary that isn't from myself or Josh (Mataxes) since it is causing confusion. The Astral Sight talent does not have it's duration increased to Rank + 10 minutes. It is just that for the ...

Re: [ED4] Astral Sense and Astral Targeting

The only test that does not have a single target is the initial test to see if the adept can see through the local corruption. Every other usage is against a single target. The initial test gives you an idea of what is around you, but it will not suffice for the purpose of Astral Targeting, which (I...

Re: [ED4] Astral Sense and Astral Targeting

No problem at all - I am happy to help. I can certainly see how that interpretation makes sense, but it doesn't change the single target nature of the talent. Instead, it provides a zone in which the adept can track all of their targets without the need to see them. It has been likened to the motion...

Re: [ED4] Astral Sense and Astral Targeting

Greetings, It seems I misunderstood part of your question, please allow me to provide some clarification. When the adept makes an astral sensing test against a target, it is only against that target. The adept doesn't make one test and automatically apply the result to every pattern they encounter. ...

Re: [ED4] Astral Sense and Astral Targeting

Greetings, Yes, Astral Sense effectively changes the duration of Astral Sight to the duration of the spell since there is no downside to keeping it continually active. Once you have succeeded at astrally sensing a target, you maintain that success for the duration of the talent/spell. Assuming nothi...

Re: [ED4] Astral Sense and Astral Targeting

Greetings, The adept must still be benefiting from some way to astrally perceive the target, whether Astral Sense, Astral Sight, or something else. The adept must have previously succeeded at an astral sensing test against the target. A reference to the section on astral sensing would likely have ma...
