Re: Maneuver

A couple of things. First, this only applies to earlier versions of the talent -- ED4 doesn't work quite the same way. That said... I would allow the Maneuver bonus to activate in your example -- you did avoid all attacks that round. I would not allow Second Attack in the same round as Maneuver, sin...

Re: Fourth Edition Errata, Clarifications, and FAQs

Re: [ED3] Re-sizing magical items

I don't recall that it was something specifically addressed in earlier editions, but we did consider it for ED4. On page 204 of the GM Guide, one of the effects available for all thread ranks: A special effect affecting the item’s usability, visual appearance, or other properties not directly relate...

Re: Ship and Mass Combat

The chapter with the revised Airship/Riverboat rules ended up being cut from the Companion due to space.

There are plans for that material to be released. I can't say more at the moment.

Re: Interspecies reproduction

As far as I'm concerned, reproduction between Name-giver races works pretty much as you describe. The essay you're referring to is likely taking a comment from the original Earthdawn rulebook (in the Major Races of Barsaive chapter, under the heading "Kinship Between the Races") that "Theran scholar...

Re: Bone Circle / Bone Spirit - Aid Summoner

Can you give me a page reference on that, as I don't remember seeing that anywhere so maybe that chapter will enlighten me on other things ( the layout of these books... sheesh ).
