Re: 4th ed spells now take LP to learn?

I thought about not charging LP for spells just because that's what my players are used to, but as with so many bits in 4e, it actually ties to a lot of pieces. There are the free Matrices, and the Extra Thread rules. But also, Talents have been examined more carefully to be more useful, and more im...

Re: Astral Sight: What does it see?

That does help me! I was working my way there, but not fast enough. Thanks!

Re: Astral Sight: What does it see?

Astral Sight itself only has to beat the difficulty of the local Astral Space to see 'everything' (i.e. 6+whatever level of corruption). You do NOT need to beat the Mystic Defense of the things/person around you to see their Imprints. Huh... I can see that. I read that sentence as much more general...

Re: Astral Sight: What does it see?

I have kind of a related question. So, you invoke Astral Sight, and you can see the astral imprints of anything/anyone whose Mystic Defense you beat for a number of Rounds equal to your rank. And I agree completely with the idea here, that you first just see like, basic forms, and can then try to lo...

Re: Air Dance worth it?

I'd note that extra attacks, especially at lower Circles, have been made a lot less accessible than they used to be, though. You really can't start with Second Attack and/or Second Weapon any more. I'm guessing that's why the threshold was set a little higher than it used to be -- extra attacks are ...

Re: Cracking Bank Hall - Character Journals [Spoilers]

*Whew!* Finally finished this -- sorry it is so long. I ended up covering all three of the final sessions together, because it just never made sense for her to stop and start again. Cathryn writes in, as one might expect, a light, flowing script, with many unnecessary loops and twirls. It is, howeve...

Re: Cracking Bank Hall - Character Journals [Spoilers]

I can assure you, Slimcreeper, that at no time during the scenario did I think we were on our way to the North Pole to meet Santa Claus! I also realized the reason I was thinking "O'Rourke" for a last name is because that was the last name you gave us for Mary, the victim, and that certainly shouldn...

Re: Cracking Bank Hall - Character Journals [Spoilers]

First, thank you for setting this up as a thread we can all share! I don't think I'd have thought of that. But secondly, I must protest. An Elf named Catherine Montague was something called a "Weird Scientist", I also heard people call her a "Byron" but she would sometimes correct people who called ...

Re: Zhan Shi

In this case it was more that I chose to approve him playing as a Zhan Shi - it was definitely his preference. Unfortunately, it's an online game, and it's kind of been on hold all month because my computer's in the shop. *sigh* And even when I get that back, at Play-by-Post speeds it may really be ...
