4ED Discipline: Sailor - questions

Post by voyager156 » Sun May 12, 2019 11:12 am

Does anyone tried to remake 4ED Air Sailor discipline into a Sailor?

Or maybe it is already described in some handbook?

It has occurred to me that the playability of the game might be improved if Sky Raiders were just Raiders and Air Sailors were just Sailors.

Yeah, the navy version of a air sailor is straight forward to create. Same for the Sea raider.

A land bound raider/soldier on a mount will however become very similar to a cavalary man.
Of all things I lost, sanity I held dearest.

Meanwhile, two of my players wanted to play Boatmen. To which I replied: take the Air Sailor, swap Air Sailing for Sailing and Wind Catcher for Swiming. That's pretty much it. It works well for now.
