Re: Can a group pattern be made by 1 person

One of the mandatory step to create a group pattern is to swear a oath of blood peace with the other member(s) of the group. Since such a oath requires, at least, 2 people, I'd say that no; a group pattern requires... a group.

Re: Thread Items - how many is too many?

There is many 'schools of thought' concerning Thread Items. Some GM are very generous with them, some uses them very rarely and there is anything in between. First of all, the Thread Item mechanic in Earthdawn is rather crunchy and can be hard to understand for a new comer. Personally, I find it sti...

Re: Distance and Travel Time Elven Nations

Thanks everyone I wasn't sure if 4th edition moved it or if it was in the same spot as the Thera book showed it. Good information to have. Well, the Theran book never showed where Shosarra was beside a vague arrow pointing north. I really hated that because making that crayon map just a few inches ...

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.
