Re: A word from Morgan

One man's meat is another man's poison. Our GM often sighs over the high redundancy in abilities. There are quite a lot of abilities that are similar in nature, but have slightly different rules (e.g. the various Impress talents, or the various astral sensing abilities). One the one hand, I can unde...

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

Actually, having sourcebooks drive on the metaplot has always given me mixed feelings. On the one hand it is very good to see that the world does not stand still. On the other hand, when not buying all books, or in the wrong order, you easily become lost. That said, I don't know of a better mode to ...

Re: Opinion Piece on the 4th Edition Book size.

I'll hope FASA soon gets a response from their printing company, so that they know how much color inserts would cost them. And in case, they are still too expensive that they can add an additional stretch goal, that will hopefully bump pledges - and be reached, as well as the Companion goal.

Re: Seeking some feedback on a possible ED4 change

At our table, we roll Initiative only once at the beginning of combat and keep the order in each round. Characters with Initiative boosting talents only have to pay strain, karma, ... once; unless they want to take advantage of secondary effects like with Airdance. This makes these talents much more...

Re: ED4 Preview #3

Take 13th Age... if Earthdawn incorporated 13th Age's Background Skills rules instead of having a grand list of available Skills than this would free up a ton of page space in the book AND give players a in game resource that truly speaks to the player's character in a personal way... Could you ela...

Re: Kickstarter!

Hm, I would have simply used a pretty picture. Tables on the outside for players tend to be illigible if you are not sitting right next to the GM. For that purpose a cardboard handout is much more useful (also including the dice table). Hm, that might be a nice inclusion to the GM screen. One cardbo...

Re: Opinion Piece on the 4th Edition Book size.

Do you mean that the hardcover version will only be available through Kickstarter, or that a special hardcover version will only be available through Kickstarter? I read "Hardcover Kickstarter only edition" that it will be a somehow special hardcover version, but not the only one. If my re...

Re: Seeking some feedback on a possible ED4 change

I would like to caution you not to alter or simplify rules just for the sake of change. From what I gather from your post, you try to address two issues, shorten combat at higher circles and increasing the use of talents with strain. The second issue never occured at my playtables and the first one ...
