Re: Are these adventures worth buying?

Thanks Mataxes and Flowswithdrek for the comments. I think I will pick up some of those books.

Are these adventures worth buying?

My FLGS is offering these older titles with a substantial discount. What is your view of these, are they worth the paper they are printed on? How adaptable are the adventures to an ongoing campaign? Are the plots linear? Is the writing inspiring or dull? I have a compulsion of desiring moar rpg mate...

[ED3] Wilderness Survival

When the party is trekking in the wilderness, what do you do with the Wilderness Survival talent or skill? I know the rules, but how have you guys actually applied the skill in game? If the characters have ample food supplies, they don't need to forage. If they fail a roll to find good shelter, what...

Flags and symbols

Re: Barsaive Box Set?

Thanks for the info. I think I'll pass on the box set this time. The map sounds cool but the price isn't good enough.

Barsaive Box Set?

I have these 3rd edition books:

Player's Guide + Companion
GM's Guide + Companion
Namegivers of Barsaive
Kratas, City of Thieves
Nations of Barsaive 1&2 (Throal and Serpent River)

Would the original Barsaive Box Set be worth getting or is the same material covered by the books I have?

How do you feel about characters with multiple disciplines?

I always thought that the strength of class-based RPGs was in them limiting and protecting the characters' niches and giving easy access to a character's identity for the player. If you are playing a scout, you have a specific role and it is cool that you become better and better at what you do best...
