Re: Nethermancer at Circle 3?

Earthdawn mages are better at buffing and debuffing than doing damage.

If you can improve (protect or power up) a teammate or reduce an opponent's armor/resistance to let someone else do more damage or take less damage, you're doing your part.

Re: Campaign Development: Denairastas tricks the players

My group is going to be restarting in Earthdawn again, and I want to work up a kickass campaign for them.

Re: Campaign Development: Denairastas tricks the players

If they're told by spies who the spies work for, the players probably won't believe it. If they gather their own evidence (coded or hidden, of course), they'll believe it.

Re: ED4 Excel Character Sheet with creator element

Has much changed based on the Companion? I know it says there are 5 detect true element skills and 5 harvest true element skills, but I don't remember anything new that would impact character creation. Assuming you would use the same attribute and time as the talent knack, it's easy enough to add th...
