Re: Bright Eyes In Dark Trees [Thread Item]

I really like the flavour of being watched but it's a bummer you aren't building on it more.
Maybe have a bit more flavour in the Rank 6 ability, like "When using this ability while Astral Sight is active, the user perceives a stalking presence that seems to always be just outside their line of sight"

Re: Looking for some GM advice

I think the hunting down part is absolutely the way to go. The character essay made very clear what other shamans think of insect spirits and a shaman who has allied with one is probably something they would do anything to destroy. Now here is the kicker though: Offer them a resolution: A cleansing...

Re: Fourth Edition Errata, Clarifications, and FAQs

One for the Errata: Mystic Paths p363: Bark Shield: Living armor. As with bark armor, bard shields were originally created by the Namdroth, woven from hursthen bark. Like fernweave, the armor is living, and provides its Mystic Armor bonus only when watered once every three days. However, bark loses ...

Re: Flying Fighting Squirrel [creature]

That'll really depend on the group. A single pair, using swooping attacks, could keep multiple adepts busy/running, if they cannot reliably go before them. Once you have a couple characters with ranged attacks, the story quickly changes. The Intention is that the FFS will use Swooping Attacks as the...

Flying Fighting Squirrel [creature]

The wilderness of Barsaive is full of wonders, some large and some small. Whether it is a landmark, a plant or an animal, scholars regularly make new discoveries or rediscover lost lore in every corner of the province. One such wonder are the Flying Fighting Squirrels of the Throalic Mountains. They...

Re: Janus [creature]

It's a nasty power but I think appropriate for what you've established.
If things explode, that's just the way of it 😅

Re: Janus [creature]

Why not both? ;) Make it a sort of negative wood skin, that reduces death rating by the test result and if it causes a wound, it also imposes the wither limb effect. Death Magic is a scary thing, nothing wrong with warning the party ahead with a few legends or tales to establish the GMs "I told you ...

Re: Skills - a trick

Rank 10 in a Skill represents Mastery of a certain craft or area of expertise via traditional learning. Taking that into account, the training/practice periods are pretty accurate. Gaining rank 10 in a skill is not something that should be achieved easily, or in many cases at all. These things are f...

Re: Storm Children (A different approach)

They were added in the ED3 Cathay book.

Personally, I'm not a fan of them and some other races introduced in that book.

Re: Thread Items - how many is too many?

For a classic campaign, 3-4 meaningful ones plus 3-4 novice tier ones with little buffs is what I shoot for. Now that is longterm, and not what PCs should have by mid Journeyman. Anything more than that and players often just forget about their bonuses and abilities, or rounds get too long because o...
