Re: Penalties to "all tests" vs "action tests" vs Resistance tests.

These are HUGE CHANGES to the way we have been running things in the Marches, it's true. Which penalties apply to which tests definitely needs to be spelled out more explicitly in the book!

Re: New professions

I'd love to see a Galatean or Promethean; a profession that acts as a disenfranchised person who is actually an escapee of artificial creation animated by the promethean spark. IE Frankenstein's Monster. A Reanimator type scientist seems to fit the bill beautifully as well, with a single, detailed c...

Re: Collective Issues with the Earthdawn 4e Game System/Engine

I figured Spot Armor Flaw was the vs armor equivalent of Disarm. No one suggests disarm can be used against lobsters. Now all my human adept needs to do is get a friend to distract the Steelman and I can tag him with spot armor flaw before jumping in with my great leap to crushing blow, down strike,...

Re: Collective Issues with the Earthdawn 4e Game System/Engine

A few new issues: Spot Armor Flaw: Does this talent only work on creatures WEARING armor? Does it work on any creature with an armor rating? Since it seems to be the Archer 'chink in the armor' and the Weaponsmith 'I know how to make armor not function' it feels like it is meant to be worn armor onl...

Re: Pattern Items and True Patterns?

This was SUPER helpful, Josh, thanks again.

It's a chunk of context that changes the way I see the whole section!
(And kills a lot of worries I had about upper level play.)

Re: Pattern Items and True Patterns?

My immediate reading was that Pattern Items offered a quick and deep boost of power by expanding on the trust between adepts in a tightly knit group of mid-circle adepts. A group pattern can only increase one trait at a time for a fair expense, up to five. An ally could expand many more traits much ...

Re: Pattern Items and True Patterns?

There are, in my opinion, basically two main times to be interested in thread magic (outside of traditional thread items). So is this opinion, or a clarification on how the game is meant to be run? A section like this would have cleared up a great many questions while reading the Workings of Magic ...

Re: Collective Issues with the Earthdawn 4e Game System/Engine

After a brief break, we're back at the table, and the only question we've had so far has come up with the Bedazzling Display of Denim... I mean Logic... spell. We're pretty set on this spell not being a bonus to your raw Charisma all around the entire world, and it pretty clearly works on Conversati...
