Re: Miscellaneous GMG Questions

1- Excellent question, I'm surprised nobody noticed that before. I guess it would mean that a PC with a torch can see up to 10 yards while a GM controlled NPC can only see up to 5 yards :-) But seriously, until the devs release an errata on the subject, I would say its up to the GM. 2- I'd say that ...

Re: Astral Sensing of Astral Forms

Hello As far as I know, there is no clear and definite answer to those questions but based on a paragraph I will copy at the end of the post, here's my opinion on the subject: Question 1: Things/persons/creatures that are PHYSICALLY in Astral Space appears 'fully defined' and their True Patterns are...

Re: Sky Raider and Charisma

Indeed. We tend to see Charisma as the 'they love me!' stat but its ALSO the 'they fear me!' stat.

Re: Beastmaster 12th Circle Discipline Talent issue

'Stacking' Claw Frenzy and Momentum Attack would basically allows the character to do 2 Claw Frenzy per round which would be... kinda OP. That does not make Momentum Attack a 'wasted' talent; say you are a 12th Circle Adept and have (say) Rank 12 Claw Frenzy then you can make up to 12 attacks in the...

Re: Item History

So, just to resume and prevent any 'wishful interpretation': We'll use, as an example, the Lighting-bold earring (GM page 217); MD:12, 6 Ranks. Your 'Item History' guy has Rank 3 in Item History 1- The 'guy' will have to study said item at least 1 hour per day for a week, this CANNOT be 'compressed'...

Re: Item History

1- I assure you Michael did NOT give you Purifier. 2- How many test knowledge (i.e. 'the questions) he learns depends of the number of successes he gets, but since he 'only' have Item History at Rank 3, he can only learn up to a maximum of the first 3 Ranks no matter how many successes he gets. Upon...

Re: Ubersuper

Great article.

However, you lost a great opportunity to make them using illusions or other kind of mimicry to hunt and call them the Ubersuper Duper.

Re: Patient Maneuver + Defensive Stance

In my opinion: - Defensive Stance is a Combat Option and therefore last for the entire round, beginning 'before' the round proper. - The knack, although being rolled immediately, (outside the 'running order for actions) still happens DURING the round. Thus, the Penalties/Bonuses related to Defensive...

Re: Used as Artisan Skill

This artisan/crafting skills 'dilemma' come often in Earthdawn. In my opinion, after much discussions about this in the Fasa Discord channel and here I believed that Artisan/Crafting skills will be used with different Attributes depending of the objective: 1- The 'main' reason everyone learn at leas...

Re: Question about Additional Target

While I would agree that the wording makes it clear that the 'Target' is the caster, not the matrix, I would personally think that the intent was to allow both targeting more matrices from the same target or a matrix from someone else. I don't see anything OP in all this. Especially considering that...
