Classic Edition

I've noticed several books are missing for sale in the Classic Edition of Earthdawn. This is, of course, absolutely not vital since most of them (The Kratas book, Ardanyan Revenge and the Shards) are pretty much copied verbatim in 3rd edition. However, the Kratas character codex includes extended in...

Re: Tasting "Inspire Others"

Ah, uh, ouch! +16 means 5 extra success on top of the highest Social Defense of the group, that would mean, assuming someone has at least 10 in SD, a roll of 35 which, I admit is not that high. This seems to have been imported from 3rd edition were the +2 were per success level on the dreaded succes...

Talent options + Multi-discipline + 'Use all talents to advance'

I could really use a clear ruling from a DEV here. We had a discussion about this in Discord but it was mostly opinions so I would like to have an answer to the following questions: When getting a second Discipline in the context of using the optional rule 'Using all talents to advance': 1- My under...

Re: DIGITAL HERMITS INGNORANT QUESTIONS THREAD

Welcome, feel free to ask as many question as you want. If you look at page 63, you'll notice that the carrying capacity is based on the strength VALUE, not the Step. Thus the +2 would apply to the value. For example, A new character is being created and have finished spending the 25 points allowed ...

Re: Question about Names and Patterns

May I suggest you take a look at the 'Nameless lad' story in the old 1st edition 'Legends of Barsaive, Volume 1' for something perhaps a bit like what you were thinking.

Re: Question about Names and Patterns

As far as I know, there is no canon way to tell whether someone is an Adept or not just by a taking a 'peek' in astral space: When looking in astral space, you will see an astral imprint of EVERYTHING/ONE within range: - Mundane object imprints will have the same shape as the object itself but the '...

Re: Funerals and Passions

Passion worshiping, even for questors, if a far way from our organized religions. Furthermore, I don't remember reading anything considering beliefs in a 'Passion-proprietary afterlife'. People knows there must be something after death because, well... spirits and stuff, but from what I understand, ...

Possible errata/clarification: Research

Since the Research talent in the Player's Guide did not state how long it took per attempt, I had always assumed it was, like so many things, 8 hours but could never be sure since there was no clear rules. However, I've just noticed that the Research Knack 'Librarian' in Mystic Patch seems to confir...

Re: Defining "Knowledge of Nethermancy"

When wondering unclear things like that, I often assume something got lost/broken/attempted to fix between editions so I go see the previous ones. 4th, 3rd and Classic edition have the same 'knowledge of nethermency' thing HOWEVER, 1st and 2nd says that NETHERMANCERS (only) are not affected by that ...
