Re: Divine Aura

According to the adventure Infected, Cadavermen have the spirit of the person re-bound into their corpse, which drives them mad. You could actually talk to the Cadavermen that Moltaa the Grim Legion Nethermancer has "guarding" the town. In my session, they wouldn't leave their post and wouldn't even...

Re: T'Skrang ships

is cargo listed by weight or volume? In all editions cargo has been listed in both. A 'duari' is a large barrel that can hold 300 lb of rice (or 36 gallons of water, or like 1 very uncomfortable namegiver). Although speed is about the same, we have to take into account that a riverboat is always ab...

Re: Disbelieving damaging illusions

Yeah, sure. But the paradox there is "Disbelieve what?" Everything all at once? Great, someone walks up and sticks a dagger in your belly. No need to be concerned, right? Yeah, well - it's real, your PD is 2, and no active defenses. And honestly, when a target does catch on to the short-term damagin...

Re: Disbelieving damaging illusions

I'm talking about the part where a target can freely decide that a spell being cast is an illusion or not, even before the actual spell even being cast, and by doing so totally ignoring any of its effect, no roll needed whatsoever. So the poor Illusionist that just tried casting Phantom Flame just ...

Re: Social System

Bravo. Understanding the Favors system is really key to letting social-based adepts shine. Yeah, you won that interaction test, but you still owe Queen Alacia a favor, and she will collect. That hooks to further adventures.

Re: Space and Time (Mostly Space)

I'm using 20 yard hexes for large scale mass combat experiments. Easy to convert yds to hex, knock off the last digit and halve it.

Re: Fourth Edition Errata, Clarifications, and FAQs

I'm pretty sure the Spliced Weave talent (ED4 Companion, 15th Circle Talent for all spellcasters) allows this. It is a Simple action that allows you to take X strain to roll X threadweaving tests. (Cannot be used in the same round as Concise Casting.)

Re: economics

Adept B'jados (Caravan Heros) make 200 Silver per Circle per Month. (Throal the Dwarf Kingdom, p. 40) This has always been my baseline for setting up these kind of economic numbers. 4E PG also notes that Forging Armor or Weapons costs 50 Silver * Rank for each attempt. This takes a week of 8 hour wo...
