Sounds great, thanks for the answer.
Spoiler:
But shouldn't it be then even more important to get feedback if the eggs were eaten?
When the guys get back from Origins I'll point them here to make sure I'm not remembering something incorrectly.

Re: Legends of Barsaive - Questions

I'm currently editing the German version of "LoB04 That which was lost" and and I came across a question: Unfortunately, eating the omelet will have later repercussions. Since there is no hint to those repercussions in this adventure, I guess it will be part of one of the followings. But shouldn't ...

Re: [ED4] Same spell multiple times on one target - what happens?

The stacking rules and limits don't apply to damage*, because the damage is not an ongoing effect (the way penalties or bonuses are). * Unless otherwise noted -- it would be fair to rule that an ongoing area-effect damage (like, say Blizzard Sphere) doesn't stack with multiple uses. Use with discret...

Re: [ED4] Same spell multiple times on one target - what happens?

That's easier to manage from a bookkeeping standpoint (you don't need to keep track of so many durations), but it isn't what was intended.

Re: Fog ghost and Spirit Hold talent

My initial instinct would be to have the spirit's WIllpower Step equal the Nethermancer Circle.

Re: Fog ghost and Spirit Hold talent

The fog ghost is a spirit, so you can use the Spirit Hold talent on it.

The DN is the effective Nethermancer Circle + 5. So if the fog ghost was summoned by a Fifth Circle Nethermancer (or a higher Circle Nethermancer casting it at that Circle), it's a DN 10 to successfully hold it.

Re: Optional Rule: Lowering Mystic Defense

Just to note, an official rule was added in the ED4 Companion covering this. Rather than deal with the potentially bizarre and annoying timing issues that might arise, what we decided was that a helpful spell cast by an ally (Air Armor, Flame Weapon, etc) automatically succeeds, even if the Spellcas...

Re: Weak Horrors

If you really want to mess with your player's heads, especially if they're already familiar with the Earthdawn setting, you could always start linking the Passions and the Horrors... I doubt that theory will ever make it into a published product but the Horrors and Passions are both mysterious enou...
