Re: RPG.NET Q&A Archive

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for the clarification. That makes sense (and is comforting - for a moment there I thought you were saying that Earthdawn took place on the Gruv - talk about a big change!).


Take Care,

Lou

Re: Earthdawn: Fourth Edition coming in 2014

That's why I'm suggesting he give us the pdfs first. DTRPG makes this easy by allowing him to give away preview copies which he can offer to us via the Kickstarter Updates. Sorry - I misunderstood your comment. I thought you meant that the PDFs Josh was referring (which I *think* would be final PDF...

Re: Earthdawn: Fourth Edition coming in 2014

This is "print version" -- PDF is likely to be available the month before the print release. I cannot stress enough how awesome it is to crowdsource your editing by releasing the pdf to backers before it goes to layout. I strongly doubt that's what Josh meant here. That would mean they wo...

Re: RPG.NET Q&A Archive

That was not my understanding, I read "magic returns to Earth too early" as a solid "Earthdawn is on Earth". I do know that Andrew very broadly hinted at the fact that the Saurids "are" the ED T'skrang, but I take that to mean that some T'skrang found a way through a w...

Re: RPG.NET Q&A Archive

Running through the Q&A searching for the word "Earth", my impression is that Earthdawn takes place the Earth of the 1879 universe and that Gruv is a nearby dimension populated with similar magical beings to Earthdawn (such as T'Skrang) and leaking magic into Earth prematurely. Possib...

Re: RPG.NET Q&A Archive

Hello, No one ever claimed that Earthdawn and Shadowrun were set on the real world Earth. The fact that real-world history and Shadowrun history diverge does NOT mean that the game wasn't set on "Earth." It's a fictional version of Earth to be sure, but the intent was always that it was Ea...

Re: RPG.NET Q&A Archive

Hello, If 1879 is taking the place of Shadowrun in the overall timeline, how does that jive with the fact that the Earthdawn setting is Earth's ancient past? Or do you mean the Earth-based part of 1879 is taking the place of Shadowrun in the time line? Is Earthdawn still set on Earth? I *really* hop...

Questions about Travar, Elven Nations, Questors, & Metaplot

Hello, After reading all the previews and comments from the development team, I've come to realize that what I really care about most with ED is the world and its story. While many people like ED for its system, I believe the game's setting is its strongest feature. It's also the part of the game th...

Re: A word from Morgan

Hello, Well, I may be a minority here, but this article does not encourage me. The subtext of this article seems to be that "character optimization is something that all players strive for", and that's something I just don't agree with. That combined with some of the other previews and com...

Re: Seeking some feedback on a possible ED4 change

Hi Josh, I appreciate the feedback thus far, and I'm not going to address any of the particular comments or suggestions at this point, except one, which isn't about this mechanic in particular, but more of a general answer to a lot of the questions raised about changes to the system, and that is &qu...
