Re: Kickstarter!

Does anybody know how big the two core books are going to be approximately? Would the developers be able to give us a ball park figure please? Mataxas said in another thread, approximately 350 pages for the digest size books; anything beyond 400 would be bad for the binding. I assume they either sh...

Re: Missed questions

@Questors: Count me in, in looking forward to seeing them being fleshed out more thoroughly. @Mataxas: You missed the follow-up question by Nahor, whether the page count was for digest size. I realize that you could have the same page count in either format by using different font sizes, but I guess...

Re: ED4 Preview #1

Don't forget Shield Charge if your second weapon happens to be a shield. But your example is a tricky one. Talents that (more or less) replace earlier talents may seem unfavourable, but offering them as a simple talent knack at higher circles strikes me as too powerful. Maybe some of them could be r...

Re: ED4 Preview #1

I really like this concept. Though, it would probably require a slight rework of Talent Knacks as they would be much more important and abundent. And there is the danger of condensing too many talents. For example, you could come up with a single "Combat" talent and knacks for the various ...

Re: ED4 Preview #1

When combining multiple talents into one, you might also want to look into consolidating what are basically the same ability. A prime example for this is Astral Sight. There is the Windling ability, the talent, and the spell. Each of them works a bit differently. For convenience, all of them should ...

Re: Preview #5 - Spells

The long answer is much appreciated, Panda. All of this sounds very exciting- naturally depending on how it will be in the end. I am no strong advocate of weaving and casting in the same turn, I just thought to bring it up as an additional idea, since it seemed to fit reasonably with the thread mech...

Re: ED4 Preview #3

Regarding the move of the Karma and Durability talents to circle abilities, I think this is fine, as long as they can still be augmented by other means. For example in our current campaign I own a thread object that incidently increases my Karma and Discipline ranks. If this will still be possible,I...

Re: Preview #5 - Spells

In the blog post you stated that some spells overlap thematically with another discipline and that you will try to tighten things up. Does this include shifting spells between spellcasting disciplines so that they are a better fit, or just tagging additional effects to existing spells? A very unique...

Re: Earthdawn: Fourth Edition coming in 2014

I have been playing Earthdawn since it was introduced to me by a friend back in 1997. By now, I own products from each of the past editions and I have successfully introduced multiple players to the system. During that time, there was one complaint that often came up - especially with gamemasters ne...
