Re: Initiative talk

I cannot see why you would not roll as a player. Each dice you use has the potential to explode, making you go faster than your enemies. If anything NPCs should simply take their step and be done with it. When I run a game all my NPCs use the same roll simply to speed things up. ... The Shadowrun in...

Re: [Curiosity] Earthdawn in Japan

:shock:

I'm so happy the T'Skrang were not designed like that from the beginning.

Resisting AoE, why can one protect all?

One of the few things I disagree with when using the ED4 ruleset is the rule that AoE spells are compared against the highest defense rating only, instead of against each target individually.

Re: Wizard Flame Flash - duration
