Entertainer Talent for Troubadour

Heya all. I would like your opinion about how to interpret the description of the Entertainer skill-as-a-talent for Troubadours. The way its written ( This talent works like the Entertainer skill (p. 196), but does not require the adept to choose a specialty ) gives me the feeling that it basically ...

I had a great laugh about your description of being a dick, a major dick and pulling off a dick move!
Well, take a look at his last name, he certainly knows everthing about being a dick :D

Re: Orichalcum (and True Elements)

I'm being pedantic about this, but I've not seen anything that explicitly states everything from the elemental planes are magical. It's an assumption on our part that things from other planes are de facto magical. I think it's reasonable to assume that, but I don't think it can be taken as proof th...

Re: A couple of questions about Earthdawn

1- The North-East of Barsaive (i.e. past Parlainth) has not, to my knowledge been developed in game (beside the Cathay books which are a LOT more to the east. So basically we don't 'know' what's around Moscow and the like if that was your question. The recently release Elven Nations book, however, h...

Throal

Hello. I've gone through the Throal book and there is still a few details that eludes me, specifically about the (physical) size of it. First, for clarity purposes, when I refer to 'the map', I mean the Throal map at page 98 of the Third Edition Throal book. 1- Does anybody know if there is canon da...

Orichalcum (and True Elements)

Question: Having a bit of an argument on whether Orichalcum (and/or any other True Elements) are 'magical' by nature or not. In other words: if I was to switch to Astral Sight and check a orichalcum coin, a kernel of True Fire, would I see them as non-magical (bland) or magical (light-up)? Thank you.

Group Pattern

Reading the group pattern section in the Player's Guide and I'm surprised to find how unclear what is the advantages of it. The rules are quite clear on the procedures, conditions and cost of a Group Pattern but the only thing I can find on the advantages is a cryptic line stating: These threads can...

Re: New Magic Book

I'm not sure what you mean by 'newly released magic book'. The latest book released so far was Eleven Nations somewhere in March. The next book that will be released (the one with the current Kickstarter) is more of an 'Adpet's Way'. The 'magical book' will be the one including the Warden+ spells. W...

Re: order of combat steps

They way I'd see it (and again, that's only my opinion) is that in this case 'Pounce' is just another type of attack, in the same 'family' as Melee/Missile/Throwing Weapons. And that therefore, just like those attacks, the attack and the damage happen at the same time. It think the way you are pictu...
