Re: Aspect of the Cowardly Skulk?

It doesn't just apply to Stealthy Stride, though -- that also boosts Awareness, Creature Analysis, and Evidence Analysis, at least. I'm not sure if there are other Talents that involve "gaining information from direct observation"... hm. Empathic Sense, probably. Could make an argument for Research ...

Re: Defining "Knowledge of Nethermancy"

Theoretically, albeit silly I know, having a Knowledge skill called Nethermancy would render you immune to the spell, which I gather is not the intent "Have you ever heard of Nethermancy?" "Um... only just now, when you mentioned it. Why?" "Darnit! Now my spell won't work, for you carry within you ...

Barsaive Reclaimed

OK, I'll go ahead and kick this thread off, I guess. This is mainly for journal entries for the Barsaive Reclaimed game (hence, the Subject. Subtle, no? ...Indeed, no.) Anyway, our GM gave us this; 1) What does your character look like? 2) Your Discipline (Nethermancer, Elementalist, Thief, etc) is ...

Re: A Beautiful Tale of Finding Friendship

Also, this came in from the player of our Air Sailor! She doesn't have an account on the forum, but gave me permission to post it on her behalf. (Actually, she claims it's all my fault, and I will cheerfully take the credit. I think it's brilliant.) Just sit right back And you'll hear a tale A tale ...

A Beautiful Tale of Finding Friendship

This is from a little one shot (well, two shot doesn't have the same ring to it) that Slimcreeper ran for us. I want to apologize to the player for Garrel, our Beastmaster. He was awesome and really was a big part of things in the first session, but then RL totally blindsided him and he couldn't mak...

Re: AAR: [1st] Marking the beginnings (220-01-04@20:00 GMT)

(The opening of Shel Vondevang's journal is written in Throalic) Followed the old road, escorting surveyors Jorank and Mumin out to the 50th mile marker. And if you only read Throalic, go look up someone else's journal with the other ujnort. There were five of us. Caedda seemed nice. (After that, sh...

Re: 4th ed spells now take LP to learn?

I thought about not charging LP for spells just because that's what my players are used to, but as with so many bits in 4e, it actually ties to a lot of pieces. There are the free Matrices, and the Extra Thread rules. But also, Talents have been examined more carefully to be more useful, and more im...
