Mundane object's spell defense

Post by Bonhumm » Fri Apr 12, 2019 10:40 pm

Hello all.

I'm trying to figure out what would be the Spell Defense of mundane objects for use with the Rust spell. Does anyone knows if there is a list somewhere for stuff like chains, cuffs, metal locks and prison bars?


Thank you.

MD of mundane objects is 2. But to cast any spell you need at least 6 which is MD of Astral Space.

Derp. I should have checked my answer.

However, I don't think you have to beat the MD of astral space. I couldn't find anything that said that, except when astral sensing.

And off the chains are on someone, you beat the MD of the person.

Not if you use the optional rules from the companion and he is willingly accepting to have his chains rusted :D
