Re: Swordmaster Preview!

Mataxes confirmed in the Possible Fourth Edition Change thread that they're keeping U/D essentially the same. Um...ah, here it is: Feel free to keep talking about these issues, but I did want to put out there that we've decided to keep the DR/UR pretty much as-is from prior editions (the base values...

Re: Let's Talk About Forge

From what Mataxes has written, though, it seems it's being firmly framed as a ritual, not just a crafting process.

Re: Martial characters and damage enhancing talents

Also... Swordmasters get a damage enhancing Talent at 1st Circle. Maneuver adds to both attack and damage. It has its disadvantages (functions over two rounds, and, of course, doesn't always work), but, well, it adds to both your attack <i>and</i> damage. And starts at First Circle.

Re: Eleventh Hour Preview: Wizard

I've also got to agree with Gkeckley...Dougansf is right. That "Step 1" Horror Mark test is probably just the little crack in the wall that broke dozens of kaers open. (Or, in the in-game terms, when people got too comfortable thinking the Wards were perfect, enough of those tiny little fl...

Re: Earthdawn Canon Question

Yeah, I think Usun introduced ketchup to Barsaive just so people would use that.

Re: Eleventh Hour Preview: Wizard

Why can't they be something outside of the Discipline which magicians can spend LP on to increase their Rank in? (like Group Pattern Threads or Spell Matrix Objects, which in story terms is what the Spell Matrix Talent is based off anyway). That's kind of where I'm headed. Heh, there's an amusing t...

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

That makes sense, and is something I don't remember being talked about in the Throal book. (Though that's not one I've read as thoroughly as some, so I could have just missed it.) Just like in the real world, you can find places where you can buy things `off the books'.. but they're going to be smal...

Re: Let's Talk About Forge

I like the new Forge rules, too. See? Just doing things right the first time isn't so hard! <grin> One thought that I have often had to balance out Forging to be useful for adventurers but not so much for armies has been to make it a Blood Magic thing. Forging lasts for a year-and-a-day, just like B...

Re: Eleventh Hour Preview: Wizard

I know -- just the fact that Lou Prosperi is here makes me want to squee, but I'm determined to be all nonchalant about it. Before I dump into the Matrix Issue - I think Haggle is a valid Talent Option for Wizards; probably for Illusionists, also, moreso than Elementalists. When you think of a spell...
