Flying in bad weather. I am sending my party after the air galleons of thrall now fling an airship in those mountains is inadvisable due to the wind, no problem they don’t have one.

Re: Down Strike

Ah, defiantly makes sense

With the new description of down strike can the sky raiders still use it while falling on unsuspecting lowlanders? The requirement for solid footing suggests you could not use it while falling.

Re: Down Strike

That is an interesting change in down strike. Means some major changes in tactics for a warrior from previous editions where to use down strike you had to actually move down. No longer needing to bounce up and down means reduced strain expenditure for warriors as gliding stride only costs strain to ...

Re: To mini or not to mini

I don’t usually bother with mins. They are good sometimes but there never big enough to account for archers and I often like to start encounters at long ranges if the terrain is open.

Re: Magic Item Questions

Re: Crafting arrows and bolts using Craft Weapon Skill

Ouch, it is as hard to create arrows as a bow, bow making historically was a specialist skill, while arrows where churned out in there hundreds by semi-skilled labour. Well guess it’s the price we pay to avoid unfun levels of complexity.

Re: Co-Operative Actions Mark 2

Breaking cooperation into a few categories of task could get us effective rules, I worry that there will be too many task types. And there will still be a lot of GM judgment in which type is permitted and how many people may assist. First cooperation to reduce time taken. This is easy, divide the co...

Generally when my Player Characters were fighting in water in melee they received a -3 penalty to Attack and Damage Tests (This situation actually came up in the Prelude to War quest to raise one of the sunken airships in the river and they came under attack by water elementals summoned by a Theran...
