Thread Items Datasheet

Hello All, As I am restarting to GM, I am soon facing having my PCs find their first thread items... Thread items are from my favorite things in ED, so I want to make this right. I am thinking of making some kind of Item Sheet, with illustration, and powers that the PC has unlocked, but also, that e...

I love the system of earthdawn for magical items, but I have always this doubt/Difficulty where sometimes the difficulty levels seem "illogical", as for detection of magic (the more powerful should be th...

Re: Elementalist and thread item

Seeing this, I would think that when finding an object infused with elements, my elementalist will maka a half magic sense if he examines it and have some sense of the elements infused in it... For the difficulty number, that s always a bit my difficulty with detecting magic (I had similar questions...

Elementalist and thread item

Avoid Blow, Physical, Defense and Windlings

Hi all, so in 4th Ed, Physical Defence is "more or less" +2/+3 compared to Dex Step Windlings get an additional +2, so it is more or less +4/+5 Created a Windling Beastmaster for one of my players, and when seeing it, his reaction has been : "Avoid Blow?

Hi all, In my playing days, my GM had a very liberal of what you could see in Astral Sight, and ended regretting it as he made my Windling Wizard/Elementalist a real mood-killer in any investigation game. In his interpretation I could sense moods, lies, magic, detect Tehran spies... I’d be intereste...
