Re: Fourth Edition Errata, Clarifications, and FAQs

Yeah, it's a bit unclear (or not?) :?

Players Guide p. 379 states that:
Regardless of whether the attack is made with a weapon or a spell, the Damage test result determines the number of damage points inflicted on the target.

Re: Fourth Edition Errata, Clarifications, and FAQs

Players Guide p. 353. Spell: Giant Size If successful, the target immediately grows 50 percent larger than his normal size, gaining a +4 bonus to Strength-only, Tough-ness-only, and Damage tests during the spell’s duration. I'm guessing this doesn't refer to all Damage test e.g. Spell Damage tests..?

Re: Willforce vs Effect Step

Thanks for clarifying that. So in that sense Willforce is pretty much useless for Mind Fog and other spells with the same wording?

(sad...)

Willforce vs Effect Step

The core rules dictate that you substitute your Willforce Step for your Willpower Step when making Effect tests . Question: Can Willforce be used for spells where the Effect Step is only used for resisting/overcoming the spells effect? Using Mind Fog as an example, which has an Effect Step of WIL+3:...

Re: Disbelieving damaging illusions

I'm talking about the part where a target can freely decide that a spell being cast is an illusion or not, even before the actual spell even being cast, and by doing so totally ignoring any of its effect, no roll needed whatsoever. So the poor Illusionist that just tried casting Phantom Flame just w...

Re: Threads, Ranks and Steps

I'm one of the guys that used to run Strands. I don't have a copy of the entire site, but I do still have a database that includes things like magic items, creatures, spells, etc. These were the type of things we could script to be pulled from the database and inserted into page templates. Would it...

Re: Spellcasting Knacks

So would you also disallow someone casting a spell and Taunt in the same round, as "the one mouth" is used for cssting the spell?

I would allow it in a heartbeat since ED is magically unreal in other instances as well. Trying to shoehorn some logic into ED isn't always the best way to go, imo.

Re: Disbelieving damaging illusions

I would really love for a dev to comment on this as I feel that a big part of the Illusionist Discipline has been severely merged, or at least not explained properly. In the our campaign, as soon as there is high circle opponents, or dragons, horrors etc, the only reasonable attack I have is True Ep...
