Re: Coinage Conversion Rate

It is 10 to 1 for both cooper -> silver and silver -> gold.

This is explained in the first paragraph of the "Currency" section on page 404. "Throal and Thera use a decimal currency system, with each coin worth ten of the previous denomination."

Re: Medieval Barsaive?

Pretty good overview, but I want to clarify a point: Walled cities that served as kaers during The Scourge had domes of elemental air and fire built over them to protect them and were referred to as Citadels. Travar is the only Citadel in Barsaive that survived unscathed. Not true. Jerris and Iopos ...

Re: Disbelieving Illusions

The illusionist pretending to be the old beggar launches his attack, casting "STOP RIGHT THERE" and freezing you and your companions. He then blasts the first one with Ephemeral Bolt (hoping for a good amount of damage without a Sensing Test), but it causes a Wound and the character makes...

Re: Weaving Threads to Pattern Items

How to clear this up (because I took a look at the section and realized I totally butchered it)... okay. Thanks Mataxes Will the pdf/print be updated to make this section clearer? Well... that's tricky. There's a space issue. The corrected material needs to fit the same page space (or very close to...

Re: Magicians Casting Buffs On Teammates `From Behind'

A popular house rule in the wake of this has been to return the option, but rule that regardless of the result, the effect is based on a single success on the spellcasting test. This issue came up in discussion at tonight's game. I was thinking to use this house rule, but increase the max successes...

Re: Theran Empire Namegivers 4th ED

Does anyone know what the official Line from Fasa is going to be with more Name Giver Races? It's not out of the realm of possibility, if something suitable comes up in the course of development. I know the tie in is not official anymore but I always thought it funny that Shadowrun at the beginning...

Re: Weaving Threads to Pattern Items

How to clear this up (because I took a look at the section and realized I totally butchered it)... okay. A pattern item allows a connection to the True Pattern of a person or place, often with the intention of gaining some kind of advantage. The pattern item itself is merely the... conduit, a kind o...

Re: Magicians Casting Buffs On Teammates `From Behind'

Removing the "voluntarily lower Mystic Defense" was removed as a result of the interactions with extra successes on spellcasting. A popular house rule in the wake of this has been to return the option, but rule that regardless of the result, the effect is based on a single success on the s...
