Re: New update -- Creatures!

I could leave the wound Threshold the same rating, but as it's a swarm it would required 2 additional successes to inflict a Wound (What would have been an excellent result in 3e.) Less math is good in creating the swarm.

Re: New update -- Creatures!

Swarm Mask A Swarm is dozens of tiny creatures, from small insects to the size of a large rat. The creatures attack en masse, usually in a defensive fury or as a hunger driven frenzy. A Swarm moves over a creature to attack, individual creatures don’t do a lot of damage but so many creatures have t...

Re: New update -- Creatures!

And this is why this is probably the most difficult rule I'll be dealing with. Which is why they're in flux, and everyone's assistance is greatly appreciated. Some questions: - why is a swarm especially vulnerable to fire? What does this even imply in game mechanics? Shouldn't it rather be vulnerabl...

Re: New update -- Creatures!

How does this work for everyone for a Swarm Mask, is it understandable? (Might have missed something, thi is the last post before bed.) Swarm Mask A Swarm is dozens of tiny creatures, from small insects to the size of a large rat. The creatures attack en masse, usually in a defensive fury or as a hu...

Re: New update -- Creatures!

So, really the idea with packs is just to say they're of a size that is specially vulnerable to sweep attacks? Sure, if there were sweep attacks in Earthdawn. Basically, I just want the swarms/packs to be simple, and easy to use. That is one of the stated goals of 4e, is making things less complex,...

Re: New update -- Creatures!

The swarm rules are in sort of worked into the Blood Wasp description. 3rd edition, pg. 159.

The more targets three different attack/damage ratings based upon whether they are attacking 1, 2, or 3 targets.

Re: New update -- Creatures!

Hi! It's looks like great. Just one question. Will you make conversion from single creature to pack of creatures? Sometimes it'd be very useful, and the combat'd be more faster and easier. Thanks I'm toying with a couple of ideas, I really dislike the current pack/swarm rules. So far Swarm is looki...

Re: New update -- Creatures!

Thanks for the feedback. Yeah, still some editing to do as far as troop/troupe. I always thought a troop of apes was a troupe, like actors, but they're a troop like military. So I might have missed some after that discovery. The Silverback is a bit slower (lower Dex, thus lower PD) that's how I deri...

Re: New update -- Creatures!

Hey Freebooter, in general habitats have traditionally appeared in the body of the descriptive text. I'll talk over it with Josh, it possible that having a habitat listing which is less words might be desirable in the digest format.

Re: Kickstarter - more ideas

PDF quickstart adventures would also be good. They're good for our friends over seas as well. Perhaps set them up to be Print on Demand for availability as well.
