Re: Oathsworn Point Rewards

Sorry for the delayed response! I've been in hibernation prepping for Gen Con. :) The Adventuring Companies offer an interesting array of bonuses and we hope they make people more involved in the world as the adventures continue to come up and feature the many personalities floating around heaven. 1...

Re: Optional Rules for Companion

An optional rule my group was looking for just the other day: Merging Skills with Talents. ED3 had rules that a skill could be upgraded to fill an available talent slot when the Adept was capable of learning it. If, say, a Troubadour created his character with the melee weapons skill, but picked it ...

Re: Dumb Questions

:shock: Can Awareness only used when actively searching for something or does it also work in Passive situations such as spotting tails you were not looking for? 4th edition Awareness is quite a bit different than 3rd edition Awareness. 4th edition Awareness seems like it can reasonably be used whe...

Re: Sharing Adventures

I'm not sure what kind of place or method you are looking for, but I can offer some ideas, perhaps. I do most of my Gamemaster note taking on Google Drive or Obsidian Portal. Both of those sites offer hosting and a bevvy of sharing options. It might make sense to put something you want to share on o...

Re: Tell Me About Your Horror Mark

In one campaign I had a horror that was slowly marking all the people within a Kaer. The creature was a subtle and long-minded one that feasted on conflict and negative emotions in general. His mark made it more difficult for Namegivers to ignore their baser desires. Eventually all of my players wer...

Re: Dumb Questions

This is one from my gutterminded group. From Namegivers of Barsaive (third edition) we can draw a few conclusions about the T'Skrang; for instance T'Skrang "couple" not "mate". Females are not packing heavy up top simply because they do not nurse, males do instead. Given the number of eggs females ...

Re: Shield and Forge Armor, why not?

I like Undrying's idea of an install-able Blood Magic charm as well. It could be two pieces, one that needs to be taken into the Namegiver who wants to use it and another that needs to be placed on the shield. Installing it on the shield could require a Craftsman roll (the Weaponsmith Free Talent) s...

Re: Shield and Forge Armor, why not?

Would allowing a Weaponsmith to shave off a single initiative penalty on shields be considered on balancing? I don't think it would be unbalancing, but it would be kind of a weird and fiddly rule. Obviously it is your Earthdawn, so you do you. If I had a player who really wanted to be able to work ...

Re: What happened to Aardelea?

My understanding is that, unless stated otherwise in the updated timeline in the Gamemaster's Guide, the Second Edition stuff is broadly accurate. Aardelea has not appeared in any Fourth Edition materials as far as I am aware, and I haven't heard of any planned works that seem likely to include her,...

Re: Legends of Barsaive: Overview

Thanks for the feedback! The Roll20 compatability and accessories would be a call for the business side of this, so I'm sure Metaxes will keep the suggestion in mind. I should really look more closely into those applications, I've gamed over Skype a few times, but otherwise it has always just been a...
