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...

Re: combat tactics

Yeah, that's exactly the thing I was trying to avoid. If you want to "push past" the defender, hit them with an Attack to Knockdown action (which probably uses the attacker's Standard Action). _Then_ you get a free shot at the target while the defender pulls themselves to their feet. But you only ha...

Re: combat tactics

I really like the addition of the Success mechanic. If you are going to bring in talent/skill ranks, it may be worth targeting the incoming attacker's Physical Defense with the Talent/Skill (this is how Acrobatic Defense & Maneuver work). Hmmmm... so you might be able spend successes from those type...

Re: combat tactics

Oh yeah, reserved and delayed actions are really important in this situation, especially if they have to take more than 1 round to close. Also, both parties are looking to Knockdown the other. The defender wants to pin the attacker so he can't reach the target, and if the attacker knocks the defende...

Re: combat tactics

Mainly to keep it really really simple (based on the Impaired Movement suggestion of halting movement on failed Dex checks in thick underbrush, etc). Opportunity attacks, or using Initiative, would bring in a whole can of worms (Armor mods, boosting Talents, spells, etc). Characters can withdraw fro...

Re: combat tactics

My house rule is a Dex test against the defender's Dexterity step. Failure ends all movement for the turn. Trigger is walking into defender's threat range (depends on weapon 1-2 hexes, 6-9ish feet). So at least twice if trying to "slip around someone" in a narrow hallway (2 hexes, ~10 feet), or 3 ti...

Re: additivity of spell penalties

Correct. One thing to note about overlapping durations. The highest effect applies only until its duration expires, then the other effect takes over.

Minor, but it comes up when you re-buff party members before the last one wore off.
