Re: [ED4] Ritual spells and additionnal threads

Sounds completely reasonable to me. Any chance this can sneak in before the dead-tree version is at the printers?

Re: Fourth Edition Player's Guide Errata and FAQ

Thought I'd put this here as it may become a FAQ. Some spells such as Astral Shield have mechanics that relate to Astral Sensing. For Astral Shield anyone who has been sensed can be added as a target of the spell for a small difficulty increase (assuming they're in range of course.) My question is: ...

Re: Earthdawn: Fourth Edition coming in 2014

I'm still waiting to get my code. (Please note that this is not a complaint. Just stating it for the record to reflect the state of the rollout.)

Re: Pre-art draft feedback

Re: Pre-art draft feedback

Re: Question on Magic Defense

To followup on Panda's response, I think it's a good thing this mechanic was removed for 4E. Specifically because now all spells can get bonus effects for additional Successes on the spellcasting roll. That's a great hook for your group :) Yeah, that. Instead of trying to roll "not botch"...

Re: Question on Magic Defense

Thanks for the replies; good to know. Now, if I can just convince my group to play some 4E when it's fully released... :-D

Question on Magic Defense

Quick question, but I can't find it answered anywhere definitively: Can an Adept voluntarily lower their Magic Defense to facilitate having a spell cast on them by a friendly spellcaster?
