River boat sailor, own discipline or air sailor?

Postby Pixel01 » Sun Jul 24, 2016 1:34 am

I am in the process of reading through the first trilogy and the river boat sections are marvelous enough to think that I could play such a T'skrang, but the problem is there ain't any disciplines tied to the rivers like with the airships.
So my question is; should such a character simply use the Air Sailor as is or are there river-lopped sailor disciplines to be found elsewhere?

There was a T'skrang discipline of Boatman in previous editions.

Perhaps if you wait for the 4th Edition Companion it may be included as a racial specific discipline, or just use the information from the 3rd Edition Namegivers of Barsaive book.

The racials will not be in the Companion.

Over on his blog Morgan addressed some of the racial/non-core Disciplines, and even did more complete builds for some of them (not official, but they will no doubt influence the official versions when/if we get around to releasing them).

His recommendation for Boatman is using Air Sailor with Pilot Boat/Sailing substituted for Air Sailing and Swimming (as a talent) in place of Wind Catcher. (Also, relevant karma abilities should be tweaked as appropriate for the vessel.)
