Re: Let's Talk About Forge

In recent games (a year and more ago) we gave front line fighters a talent called Block that was a defensive talent based on Dexterity plus the physical defense bonus of the shield, thread shields saw a miraculous comeback. Of course if you utilized the shield to block an attack it no longer counte...

Re: Eleventh Hour Preview: Wizard

Ah, I wanted to write such a nice and long reply to Roth, but Kasbak stole a lot of my thunder. So here is the short version: Why do *you* think everything we talk about has to be always about combat? I can think of a lot of reason why a character would not have precast certain spells. The following...

Re: Eleventh Hour Preview: Wizard

I also really like the idea of having matrices as talent knacks. Heck, the whole idea of making knacks more central is great, but probably comes a bit to late in the design process. But for what it is forth, here is my idea to handle taking a spell matrix knack multiple times: Simply make it a talen...

Re: Questions about Travar, Elven Nations, Questors, & Metap

Shosara is somewhere in Scandinavia, Sweden I think. The other elven empire, whose name eludes me at the moment (Sarethea?), I don't know. Maybe England.

EDIT: Actually the Vivanne province is Greece. Thera is just an island.

Re: Preview #5 - Spells

I agree with that. Give distances in real life units and state the conversion in the combat chapter. Fun fact: The conversion from yards in the 1st edition to hexes in the 3rd edition was not consistantly done and in some points, they simply switched the name (if I remember Great Leap was one of the...

Re: Kickstarter!

The books will be in digest size, there was also an explanation some time back detailing the final reasoning. For reference: It was in Update #8 on the Kickstarter page, I unfortunately don't know how to directly link to it.

Re: Fourth Edition Preview -- A whole lot of talents

Well, if you are upfront to your players about your playing style then it is okay I think. However, I wasn't refering to combat talents vs. social talents. In both categories there are talents can be useful more often, and some that are only applicable once in a blue moon. Also, you didn't go into m...

Re: stupid question about dice step changes

Still having your original analysis of the probabilities for D20+D4 vs 2D12 in mind, I have to say I am curious why you chose this solution for the step chart. The D20 only appears for rolls with 3 or dices and thus the probability distributions should remain more linear than bell shaped. But for ex...

Re: Fourth Edition Preview -- A whole lot of talents

My solution has always been make the player want to use the supposed ' :thumbdown: ' talents. That is completely within the GMs preview. Then when the players start :cry: just point to their talents options showing them they had the opportunity to take the supposed ' :thumbdown: ' talents but didn'...

Re: ED4 Companion Hardcover: How To Do It

(copied over from the Kickstarter Update #16 comments) If I understand correctly, your main concern is to print just the right amount of harcover Companions. As it will be a Kickstarter exclusive, you don't want to have any leftovers, as you wouldn't be able to sell them afterwards -- otherwise it w...
