Re: The Guardian of the Library

Seems like a perfect time to explore the notion of a greater pattern. Maybe all the librarians of Thoal that die, their spirits join the great Library to keep it safe and make it stronger. They would have access to the accumulated knowledge of the library, so you could literally make the challenge a...

Re: thread weaving

Well I've always viewed it as a balancing sort of thing. Mages usually are non-combat, and their best spells take a while to weave and cast. So being able to use magical items earlier is just a balancing to make up for that. And with Willforce popping up around the same time as the thread weaving ab...

Re: Light bearer PCs. How do they do for power.

Thanks for the info, although he changed his mind when I told him his heart blade is blood magic (he is a weapon smith). Between that and the focused anti horror mindset required he decided not to bother. That's good, the Lightbearers are horribly over powered in the early versions of the game. I t...

Re: What does a citadel look like?

Basically do a image search on the term Futuristic Domed City, those concept designs basically are mirrors of what you would see in Earthdawn Citadels. And then everywhere you see steal substitute elemental Earth, Wood and/or Orichalcum, and everywhere you see glass, substitute elemental air and wat...

Re: horror mark question

Well the great thing about the Gharmek is that it doesn't have any powers like that. The Horror Mark and Terror are it's primary powers. And it's not a spell caster. But it can animate Cadaver Men at great ranges.

Re: forge weapons

I'm confused why a smaller weapon needs to compensate for anything Galafrone. I have a Desktop computer and a smart phone. I can run applications on both, but sometimes I use the smart phone because it's more convenient. Daggers are cheap and I probably won't mind losing one if I throw them in a fig...

Re: horror mark question

I think the problem you are having here is that you are assuming that the Gharmek will move onto another spot. For as long as it's being feed what it wants, there is no reason for it to leave. It would likely remove the PC's from it's lair once it's finished and just stay there. I'd probably take al...

Re: Looking for a spell...

Interesting, I have to agree with Slayride on this one, an Astral Pocket is a bit out of reach of a 4th Circle Nethermancer. I'm curious why there is a need for something like this. I've only had one Nethermancer in one of my game and he kept his in a special soft bag that he carried in his robe. I'...

Re: Spellstore question

You can have the same spell active a number of times = your Spellcasting Rank. Arma is it total number of spells active at one time, or total per spell. If a Wizard has Spellcasting rank of 3, does that mean they can have 3 Astral Shields up, or can 1 Astral Shield, 1 Astral Sense and 1 Wizard Mark...

Re: How Strict Are You?

Wow the way you describe Earthdawn, it's like we are playing different games. I can't remember a time that the rules got in the way of playing. It's a very rare day that I don't know where a rules table is for something. But after reading Ducifer's angry rant about how much better Roleplayers are th...
