Re: Earthdawn Quick-Start Preview

Hi Josh, I took a look through this, and it looks pretty good, but I think there are a couple of things that are missing. First, the current draft of this doesn't really tell the players anything about the game's setting. I think you should include a high-level Introduction/Overview of Barsaive and ...

Re: Book of Tomorrow

Hello, Whenever stuff like this comes up, I'm reminded of the "Barsaive at War" put out by Living Room Games, based off the original outline. The linchpin of the storyline is Neden's declaration. It is a modified Declaration of Independence. Slightly modified. It's kind of painful, honestl...

Re: Help with thread item design

Hello, What if instead of conferring a bonus of some sort, the box does something? For example, what if as long as the box contains an elemental coin of a particular type (and it can only hold 1 of each), it allows the elementalist to create/conjure kernels of that true element x times per day (base...

Re: Quick question re: Vestrivan

Hello, The "noble sacrifice" is at least partially based on the idea that Stormhead's assault on Vivane was accidental. As I have expressed elsewhere, that is a bad idea. With that gone, I don't see any reason for Vestrivan to get involved. In the original outline for Barsaive at War, Vest...

Re: Want a little setting background discussion?

Well, to be more accurate, Dragons vs. Therans is a subset of Immortal Elves vs. Dragons, since the founders of Thera are a faction of immortal elves themselves... and also simmering in the background is conflict of Immortal Elves vs. Immortal Elves (Therans vs. Elven Court vs. Elven Nations). One o...

Re: GM Screen

Hello, After looking over the list, here are the tables (in no particular order) that I think would be useful for a GM while running the game. (note that I left off the Weapons table, based on the discussion on FB). Step/Action Dice Table Travel Rate Table Difficulty Number Table Perception Difficul...

Re: Canon books

Hello, Josh is correct here. All of the Earthdawn novels were considered canon at the time of their publication. Part of my job at the time was to serve as a "story editor" of sorts for the novels to make sure they were more or less consistent with the Earthdawn setting as presented in the...

Re: Thread Weaving & Pattern items

Hello, I thought I would share some of my thoughts on this. First, I generally agree with Josh. Pattern items and thread items are different things. Secondly, there are a couple of important points that should help clarify why these two types of items are different. [Note that what follows is based ...
