Re: Starting Animal Companions and Mounts

Since it is possible to start the game with Animal Bond 3, you should create a list for it as well :lol: We don't allow CR3 creatures when creating a character. Those have to be earned. It would also break too many things early on, since you basically have a character with a creature that is notice...

Re: Starting Animal Companions and Mounts

Here is how we handle it in my game: Every character can start out with animal companions worth their rank in Animal Bond (Both Skill and Talent). I've had some start out with multiple small ones, and it was usually fine. Some will, of course, try to game this system a little bit but that's a social...

AIUI, if your Initiative Step is reduced to zero or lower, you act every other turn on 1.
There is no such thing in the books.
The only rule that exists states that, if a characters initiative gets reduce below step 1, they always act last in the round as if their initiative result was 1.

Re: Fourth Edition Errata, Clarifications, and FAQs

Just mentioned this in discord: Animal Possession only states that an adept retains their intellect but fails to mention that they also retain their talents. Panda confirmed that talents are still usable, as long as the animal is physically able to do so. Should probably be included in the errata ju...

Re: Loosing your turn due to encumbrance

There is no rule of 1 on initiative. I am not aware of anything like this from the versions I have played personally (ED2,3,4). EDC is basically just an updated ED1, so this should also overlap. The best example would be the gauntlet, who can reduce his initiative to a 1 in order to gain a higher bo...

Re: Mystic Paths Disciplines

I think you are underestimating the power of these single attacks. High-circle gauntlets can easily get upwards of +15-20 to a single attack from just two talents. And they are not very likely to get avoided or parried, just due to the much higher attack steps they will have compared to pretty much ...

Re: Riposte

Well, the extra success for me already implies that they have beaten their attacker to the punch.
If someone parries your attack well enough to counterattack you, then I highly doubt that you can do the thing back to them in the very same action.

Re: multiple questions

the max rank you could have journeyman skills at creation being 1. That's why this was included. You can learn something advanced, but you can't have much practice in it. Also, the LP cost and training times/costs for these talents far outweigh the usefulness of raising them compared to their core ...

Re: multiple questions

We solved it by making those cost 2 points per rank at creation and the max rank you could have journeyman skills at creation being 1.

That was before the errata though, where our GM interjected that it seemed like an oversight and came up with the above rule.

Re: [Discipline] Custodian

EDIT 17. Jan 2019 - Post playtesting : The thread has now been updated based on last weekend's playtesting: Some discipline talents were changed, options were scrapped and Law of he Land has been moved into 15th Circle, after the Master Tier had been finalised. I think it is a pretty well-rounded d...
