Re: Collective Issues with the Earthdawn 4e Game System/Engine

The five dollar word in there, plus the somatic component, suggests this is meant for addressing a crowd. However, without a REQUIREMENT for a crowd, no reason the audience MUST be a crowd. Spells in ED can be a bit finicky - you have to incorporate the whole to find the real boundaries and effects....

Re: Pattern Items and True Patterns?

This gets into dangerous ground of simplification, but here's a different perspective on the process using different terms and without the flavor stuff. Thread Items can be leveled up. Each level has a power (benefit the character gets) and a cost (that the character must pay). The cost has to parts...

Re: Index sensitivity

The problem is getting worse. Can't search for "knowledge" now. With people posting full characters on a sub-forum now, with separate posts itemizing their LP expenditures, we're heading steadily towards a significant usability problem where people won't be able to search for meaningful terms. Just ...

Re: Pattern Items and True Patterns?

Here's the most recent mega-thread on the topic: http://www.fasagames.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=273 @Jaracove It seems to me you asked very similar in the last thread. I'm not mentioning that to berate you, it just suggests to me there's something that's still not click for you. I'm just not ent...

Re: Pattern Items and True Patterns?

Were wading further into "rehashing unresolvable stuff," but yeah, the naming is wonky, given "Research Knowledge" kind of implicitly suggests a "Research test," which is by no means required, it's just one avenue. Previous threads talk about this topic, both the Name problem and the "is Research re...

Re: Pattern Items and True Patterns?

Observation is true. Personally, it's not ground I want to retread - there's very little to add to the previous conversations that are here on the new forum (not that it feels like you're trying to rehash it). :) Unless The Powers That Be make official errata solidifying one of the two interpretatio...

Re: Pattern Items and True Patterns?

Search the forum, the minutiae of Key/Test/Research knowledge has been discussed significantly, often in context of Item History. Most anything you could hope for on the topic would be there. Short answer is yes, there's a difference: Each rank of a thread item is gated behind a key knowledge, which...

Re: Karma use with Tiger Spring and Air Dance

I think: Tiger Spring is not tested as it gives talent rank as bonus, so no you cant use Karma with it. Air Dance (and some other) is tested as its Rank+Dex and Karma can be used on it. Karma PG p.37 Damage talents combo work differently than Tiger Spring+Air Dance combo. If you need explanation, j...

Re: Karma use with Tiger Spring and Air Dance

The errata provides an example that says you can: However, a Seventh Circle Beastmaster attacking with Claw Shape and Down Strike could spend three Karma on the Damage test: one from Claw Shape, one from Down Strike, and one from their Fifth Circle Karma ability. So, if you could somehow stack five ...
