Re: Artificer traps

this is a very nice topic so I'm doing a little nethermancy here bringing it back. Can anyone else share some more ideas such as this? From my side, when the players are in enough of a paranoia what's also a nasty thing to do is to let the trigger a trap but not see any immideate effect, only hear s...

Re: New ED3 GM question: critter selection

Generally if you look through the bestiary in the GM guide, all critters/enemies have legend award listed - choose anything with a First Circle Legend award and you should be fine. the ones with a Group legend award are a bit tougher. Or you can initiate an inn fight (or a tournament) with piecies o...

Re: How did animals survive the scourge ?

It was stated in one of the books that Horrors rarely paid attention to normal animals - that's because animals are not namegivers and do not have such a wide varaiety of emotions to feed on. Only when Horrors needed some servants or cannon fodder so to speak they turned to animals and changed them ...

Re: Shield charge -Over powered?

Hm I never thought of this from that side. I will see how the talet usage changes when I give out a couple of threaded weapons.

However, I still think that it makes more sense the way I modified it.

Re: Shield charge -Over powered?

Let's say I have a good sword with damage step 6 (forged) and a buckler - note the difference in price and avability. I have the shield charge talent and I am aware of it's power so I invested in it and have it at rank 7. It's more efficient for me to use my sword to attack to knockdown an opponent ...

Re: Shield charge -Over powered?

Re: Shield charge -Over powered?

yeah so thats how i understand it as written in the book. I'm more interested in the balance of this talent - is it only me (& my players) that think it's broken in a way that it makes a shield better than weapons? ukhata - good point, I kind of forogot about that. Will use this in my revised Sh...
