Re: Earthdawn: Fourth Edition coming in 2014

Aw, it's OK, Earthdawn. Let him run off with that Fifth Edition floozy - we don't need him.

What do you say we head back to my place, and we'll spend a wild night with TORG? <wink>

Re: Summoned Fog Ghost

As the summoned Fog Ghost makes the the fog being a "killing cloud" it attacks Physical Defense, but fog cant hurt you really, so its attacks are stopped by Mystic Armor, because fog is full of "bad" energy. I agree very much with this take. (Although I think spells work very di...

Re: Initiative Replacements

That looks about right. My problems/questions are; 1) "This test is now considered the target's Initiative test result." If we assume our target is my earlier example - the Warrior, say, with Crystal Plate and a shield and one rank in the Danger Sense skill - the Thief would have been bett...

Re: Initiative Replacements

I got that from the Danger Sense Mechanics Thread; For Surprise/Ambush situations, would the Danger Sense roll be considered the character's Initiative Test for that first round? If so, good to go (but can't use other Init Talents). If not, character has to make another Init test (& maybe use ot...

Re: Initiative Replacements

So... a character with, let's say, a 17 Dexterity, but Crystal Plate armor and a Footman's Shield, normally has an Initiative Step of 1. But if they put a point into Danger Sense - which can be learned as a Skill - then in rounds in which they are surprised , they get an Initiative Step of 8? That's...

Re: Movement and attack sequence

I find that pretty clear under the "fluid movement" aspect of Earthdawn's combat mechanics. For the same reason anybody within two yards can be counted as `in the way' for a missile attack, you naturally assume that if an attacker circles around their enemy, said enemy will keep turning to...

Re: Danger Sense Mechainics

OK, I just popped into the GM's Guide to look at traps, and under Initiative, it says, Initiative A trap’s Initiative rating measures how quickly the trap activates. When a trap is triggered, the gamemaster makes an Initiative test using Initiative rating as the Step. Any character that would be aff...

Re: About Blood Charms

I didn't use slaves, but they weren't participating volontarly, so i'm not sure what it makes them. "Victims", I think, is the technical term. That was brilliant. Thank you for taking the time. That's quite a spreadsheet, too! I don't have time to study it right now (all our resources are...

Re: Ephemeral Bolt and True Ephemeral Bolt

My Illusionists usually cop to being an Illusionist right away. It's whatever else they are that they don't admit to. Being able to hold similar spells in one Matrix isn't unique to Illusionists -- it's just new to 4th Edition, and very specific. Purify Water and Purify Earth. Resist Element in its ...

Re: Obsidimen and sex

I've always had a hard time picturing the average Obsidiman interacting properly with a lot of those talents, too, actually. It doesn't bother me, exactly, but I don't think I've ever seen an Obsdiman PC take Seduction, so it hasn't really come up. Winning Smile doesn't really bother me, and Flirtin...
