Re: More than one Talent Option each circle?

Maybe you could allow people to pick extra talents from the options for the previous tier (so Novice can't, Journeyman gets to pick from Novice, and so on) This is already allowed. Most players won't, though, because the Journeyman options are (broadly speaking) more powerful/better than the Novice...

Re: Reviving the Earthdawn Westmarches campaign

To keep things manageable, it was asked that we create a new sub-forum for the new iteration of the West Marches game. These threads will be locked and kept for archive purposes, but all new business should be handled over in the West Marches II subform.

Re: Questions for movement: Summon Bone Spirit

Yeah, having looked over this thread I think part of the issue is the small group and selected Disciplines.

Re: When to add karma

I just took a look through the ED4 Player's Guide (searchable PDFs are a joy). It turns out there might not be a single, specific statement about when the decision to spend karma must be made. Here's the closest to it: ED4 Player's Guide, page 373, under "Resolve Actions" Once the Initiative order h...

Re: Legends of Barsaive 06: Glass Houses

Re: Optional Circle Advancement Rules

That's the case -- the recommended awards in the GM Guide are based on a particular "budget" of Legend Points.

Confirmation bias is a hell of a drug.

Re: Don's comics

We'll investigate better navigation options. For now there's a comic-specific category that pulls up just the comics. Click that link and you can use that to navigate them in order.
