Re: Kratas

It's been a while since I've actually read it, but It's a pretty decent book from what I remember. (I did some editorial work on the history/backstory for the city while the book was in development.) Of course, if somebody has a question about, "Should I buy this Earthdawn book?" my answer is almost...

Re: Familiars 4th edition

Familiars are possible for more than magicians (Beastmasters, for example, can make their primary animal companion a familiar).

So I would make it any thread weaving, not just the magician ones.

Re: spell matrices

It's especially helpful for Illusioinists because they can now have both real and illusory versions of a spell in the same matrix, and decide from casting to casting which version to use -- instead of tying up 2 matrices with slightly different versions of the same spell. This lets them play more wi...

Re: 4ed Character Sheet

Also, is there an estimated timeline on the interactive character sheet being released and what the cost will be? Just curious. Thanks! We were talking about it in the company staff meeting last week, and as I recall it was basically ready. I'll poke the relevant people to see if I can get info I c...

Re: 4ed Character Sheet

So...the official character sheet on the resources page has a different step chart than the other character sheets listed and is also different from the step chart listed in the Player's Guide...which is correct? How did that get missed? The Step Chart on the sheet on the resources page ( this one,...

Re: Movement&Distances

The movement rate change actually first showed up in Third Edition -- the game switched to "hexes" as the default rate, to (as I recall) kind of go along with the battlemat style of play popular in D&D3/Pathfinder spaces at the time. The assumption was that 1 hex = 2 yards, and given the movement ra...

Re: Nethermancer at Circle 3?

I would consider shadowmants a nightflyer, but not a krillra (the latter are decidedly not nocturnal).

(Of course, Nightflyer's Cloak has a lot of utility outside potential combat damage -- I'm partial to owls and bats.)

Re: Spot Armor Flaw

Spot Armor Flaw isn't intended to allow enhanced damage from spells -- even if they go against Physical Armor. Spells aren't "aimed" the same way as physical attacks (whether close combat or ranged), and so shouldn't be able to take advantage of the "weak point" idea that Spot Armor Flaw is suppose...
