Re: [ED4] Astral Sense and Astral Targeting

Once again, thanks for the long answers. I think I understand where you are coming from when you talk about all except the initial test always being against a single target. I was not really understanding that before. Maybe I am just thinking about using the talent wrong. Most of your answers are ab...

Re: [ED4] Astral Sense and Astral Targeting

Thanks for all the help. I appreciate the answers. However I still have questions about the duration of Astral Sight. This is technically true, but since it can be activated every round for free, it is almost certainly safe to assume the talent is being used freely for the duration. I agree that you...

Re: [ED4] Astral Sense and Astral Targeting

Hunh. Is that supported at all by the text? Usually stealthy things in games with Astral Space are very specific about what hides your Astral Imprint and what doesn't. I am the one who asked the original question, so I am not 100% sure. But I will say that there certainly is textual support for Pan...

Re: [ED4] Astral Sense and Astral Targeting

Here is another fun little twist to ask the experts about. It seems like somebody gets to make one Astral Sense per round as a simple action (while doing something else). Am I correct in assuming that while you are "focusing" on one thing, you are not seeing the overview that the astral se...

Re: [ED4] Astral Sense and Astral Targeting

Great discussion, I am learning a lot. However I am going to go back to the issue that prompted the OP. The Original Posters specific situation is that he went into battle having precast Astral Sense and Astral Targeting. He made an Astral Sight test every round for the first 4 or 5 rounds getting l...

Re: [ED4] Astral Sense and Astral Targeting

Just to throw a twist into an already twisty thread - What sort of result would be needed to spot a scout using Stealthy Stride? The adept makes a Stealthy Stride test, the result being the Difficulty Number for any Perception tests made to notice the adept. Lets assume a safe area and two scouts - ...

Re: 4th Edition Reviews?

I suggest you look at the "Using All Talents to Advance" Optional Rule on p. 453. Silly me, I forgot about that one! When I started the game I determined that we would play the game as written, without optional rules. Now that I am reminded that the one thing I dislike actually has an opt...

Re: 4th Edition Reviews?

My campaign has been going for over half a year now, so I feel that I am finally ready to weight in on this topic. I am mostly comparing ED4 to ED1 and ED2. I like ED4, except for one very major feature: it kept discipline talents, and made them such that you need to advance all of them in order to ...

[ED4] Stacking Armor

I see in Shards Collection Vol 1 that NPC Thygold Dorkinsin [page 26] is wearing both an Espagra-Scale Cloak plus Padded Leather Armor. This gives him armor that is better than Chainmail (has a point of mystic armor), but has much less initiative penalty, for just 40 sp more than the price of chain ...
