Re: Alternate Discipline Talents

We do it like this with one little extra rule:

A talent that is available by original rules from a certain circle onwards, can only be taken once this circle in this discipline is reached.

The circle 8 discipline talent can hence not be taken upon circle 5.

Re: High resolution Barsaive map image

The hint with the scale is an interesting one!

The german distributor even gives you a complete photoshop file so one can modify the labels.

I think about adding an XY axis, so I can keep the labeled original and tell the players at which coordinates they can find places.

Re: More than one Talent Option each circle?

I received the question whether I would allow the player to trade in a fixed discipline talent for an option. In my opinion it is almost a disadvantage if a talent is not in you option pool but in your fixed list at a fixed circle. I agree that it is good to limit the availability somewhat to a cert...

Re: Called Shot to ignore armor?

I would suggest to use a called shot for functional purposes.

Cutting the rope they use to hang your friend for example.

Re: Question about ED2 Talents wood skin and others

Not broken. Let's not forget that there is a 'middle ground' between 'alive' and 'dead' and that's the unconscious rating. Wood Skin also increase the unconscious rating thus you would remain conscious 'longer' with the Wood Skin talent. Yes, if the total goes over the (real) death rating then this...

Re: Question about ED2 Talents wood skin and others

Regarding Wood Skin; Your interpretation of the damage remaining and a character potentially dying when wood skin expires is a very tough one. It does however close a bit the gap felt regarding 'fighting value' between a Sky raider and a Warrior. What worries me about it, are the elven and windling ...

Question about ED2 Talents wood skin and others

Hello! Is the way ED4 interprets Wood Skin, with the explicit wording that the damage is taken away with the end of the duration also the way it should be read in ED2? As it is adding to your damage threshold for a certain duration, I presume one can regenerate into the increased wood skin based hea...

Re: Air Dance worth it?

Thx all for your wisdom! RAW in 2. Edition is clearly on my side as attack is a term clearly defined in the combat section p.217ff with spellcasting and missile weapons explicitly named. RAW in ED classic (red bricks “better 2.edition”) Clearly states close combat, as does 4th edition. So I agree it...

Re: Air Dance worth it?

To clarify: to get the extra attack with Air Dance with three successes, not three extra successes (for a total of four). For a more concrete example, it your target scored a 7 on their Initiative, here's the breakdown: Air Dance result less than 7: No successes. Air Dance result of 7-11: One succe...

Yes. For ED3 it was pretty decent!
