A couple of game mechanics Q

Deadfall Talent states a character observing the effect is entitled to a Sensing test but doesn't give a TN, or what level spell the talent is on the table p266. Are we supposed to use the Step total as a TN? Right in the description, not sure why I didn't see it. the adept makes a Dead Fall test to...

Astral Pollution questions

So help me out here. Looking into the astral is TN 6 unless there's been horror activity in the area. What does "activity" actually mean? Clearly a horror doing bad things and marking name givers is for sure but what about some horror constructs just hanging around? Cadavermen? Foul Folk? A horror c...

Re: Spoiler question (My players stay out of this thread!)

I'm talking about the rose that the queen gives the party, not the pattern item for Wyrm Wood that Hermion sends to the Blood Wood. I understand that, and to answer your original question: No, there wasn't any follow-up or continuing plot thread related to that in other books. I was more wondering ...

Spoiler question (My players stay out of this thread!)

I have a question about Mists of Betrayal So the rose that the queen gives the party. She says“Study the rose,” Queen Alachia commands. “Only by seeing its truths can you fathom what we are.” So did they ever circle back to this or is this about the forest heart and what they are still doing there (...

Re: Question: 'Nobody Here' spell

as stated in the spell If failed, the viewing character’s sensory feedback is magically suppressed—his senses detect any characters that would normally be visible, but the knowledge is suppressed by the spell. So no to any other senses detecting the caster/targets of the spell. It's the catch all an...

Anticipate Blow work with missile weapons?

The example in the book uses melee weapons but it's a 3rd circle discipline talent for archers.

Re: Optional Strain Rule

I always thought that strain was your imperfect attempt to channel astral energy through your pattern. There's a cost that has to be paid and that's what strain is.

I agree with Shark, 1 pt of strain for the chance to use avoid blow and not take any of the damage seems like a small price to pay.

Re: longing curse for Blood Elves?

Greetings, The Step is listed in the blood elf entry earlier on the page: "Longing: A side effect of the Ritual of Thorns is all blood elves are afflicted with Longing (Blood Wood, 3)." In this case, it's Step 3. Hopefully this answers everything. Best regards, Morgan Why are you always making fun ...

longing curse for Blood Elves?

Just finished reading the Elven nations book and a player made a blood elf. 1 month has passed so now he needs to make a longing test.

However, the text is not clear as to what the actual step rolled is other than it increases by +1 each month.

Am I missing something?
thanks
