Re: Grapple rules...

Hm. You have a point there. It is already an achievement to deny a warrior his many attacks. I just remembered a few incidents at my martial arts lesson when people were held in a pretty punishing way that did not leave them many degrees of freedom except wiggling the small toe. Not even thinking of...

Re: Grapple rules...

In EDC there is head butt, pin down and mighty throw.

One can argue about the last one, it is fun, but our obsidiman really threw ridiculously big opponents onto their smaller minions. Results are really ugly.
The first two however would have been worth consideration.

Re: Grapple rules...

Hm.. It probably needs more successes to do something with unarmed combat, it should however be more than just a necessary evil to use a claw hand. Once you manage to close-in on a guy with a two handed sword, ( dangerous and exposing to the unarmed guy) he should be able to do more than just holdin...

Grapple rules...

What is the physical defense of a character that is grappled? This tank of obsidiman that grapples the guy and oops, rolls over him (for no damage?) or just kneels on his neck(Just Shiatsu!Insurance pays!) Ok, let's say the obsidiman is just holding him for extended interrogation...and say the victi...

Re: Shield and Forge Armor, why not?

One small spice I would like to add is the material component. Being a material scientist related to crystals and their growth, I can tell you there is lots of magic in the process! However, without the right ingredients, some qualities remain unachievable. Out of pure gold you can only forge weapon...

Re: Balancing encounters

My dice are public. My encounters often not fair, so is life. Coming back another time is an option. ( the scout used to have a list with deferred missions, some of them escalated if not taken on) This makes reconnaissance much more valuable. Characters like scholars, thiefs and scouts gain legends ...

Bow or Crossbow - Rate of fire

My players complained that a typical dwarven crossbowman would be a little off their imagination when build according to the rules as written. He would like to have more damage with a crossbow and is willing to accept a slower rate of fire. Also a Troll with a ridiculously large crossbow taken from ...

Re: Fourth Edition Errata, Clarifications, and FAQs

Hi, just one quick thing regarding page numbering: I find it helpful if typing in "30" brings me to content page 30. Not to difficult to realise and it speeds up. paper digital parallel use. If you're talking about the option to jump to a particular page in the PDF, unfortunately not every PDF read...

Harried?

Hi Folks, I wondered when a certain creature is harried. Fixed with 4 people attacking? Question of size? Intelligence? Fighting skill? Then the malus increases by 1 per additional character attacking? It says"multiple sources of distraction" under "Overwhelmed" Say we fight a wormskull, if 6 people...

Re: Book binding (softcover)

My ED 1 Hardcover survived all sorts of crap but all the softies after lost pages from the first few game evenings onwards. I switched to an IPad and some selected print at some point in time. Also useful: a short one sentence summary for each talent in an xls. Then each discipline has on one page a...
