Re: Stealthy Stride talent

Using Stealthy Stride needs Simple Action so a test is made every round. Test Result is difficulty to see the adept. How do You rule it works, a test at the beginning of a round (simplest choice), or from that Adept Initiative to his initiative in next round? So lets say Adept used talent and is in...

Re: [ED4] Journeyman conversion

For Journeyman I would keep the choice of Defence up to the player, as it is in 3rd Edition and simply follow the above pattern; so if your player chose +1 Social Defence at 2nd Circle, when he reaches 6th Circle his Social Defence bonus will now be +2 and then +3 at 8th Circle. Note that Swordmast...

Re: Medieval Barsaive?

Perhaps the dwarves of Throal try to set up a feudalistic society with the current king portioning out land to (the Earthdawn equivalent of) barons, dukes, earls etc. It would seem a simple thing to do and of course you'd have plenty of conflict with various cities/towns/villages rebelling against ...

Re: Improving in Multiple Disciplines?

I can either go insane trying to figure out the rules for improving in multi disciplines, or I can just rule you can't have more than one discipline. Think I'll go with the latter. In all seriousness, does anyone understand the rules for improving in multi disciplines? I've read them a few times no...

Re: Medieval Barsaive?

It's been a long time since I delved into ED and especially ED's setting of Barsaive. Does Barsaive's setting have castles, kings, queens, knights etc? Does it have a feudal system? Castles Sort of. Barsaive has kaers . "caer" is a welsh word for "fortress". Caer Paravel in Narn...

Re: Weaving Threads to Pattern Items

Item History is a pretty weird talent to me that would serve as nothing more than a barrier to entry on magic items if it weren't for the "also reveals facts about non-magical items" aspect. For nearly all purposes, it's either just a money sink that requires you to sit in town for a whil...

Re: Theran Empire Namegivers 4th ED

Does anyone know what the official Line from Fasa is going to be with more Name Giver Races? It's not out of the realm of possibility, if something suitable comes up in the course of development. I know the tie in is not official anymore but I always thought it funny that Shadowrun at the beginning...

Re: Theran Empire Namegivers 4th ED

Does anyone know what the official Line from Fasa is going to be with more Name Giver Races? I know the tie in is not official anymore but I always thought it funny that Shadowrun at the beginning of their world had more name giver races than Earthdawn at the middle of theirs? Some of those races w...
