Re: Is it just me, or is Invoke Leopard Pounce really strong?

The spell is basically the "Shield Bash" talent (which is Novice-tier) with a 10-yard range. The result of the Effect Test is reduced by armor, and that reduced result is both damage and Knockdown difficulty. I would then use the description of Shield Bash: The target of the spell makes a Knockdown...

Re: Is it just me, or is Invoke Leopard Pounce really strong?

Wow, it's even more powerful than read from your description. The Effect test determines how much damage is inflicted and the Knockdown Difficulty the target must resist. It's not just, that the spell forces a knockdown test against the damage taken, NO, it is against the effect test itself (and the...

Re: Nightflyer's Cloak

Sorry to revive this thread but I want to make sure I understand two more details here: Does the Adept maintain his Health Ratings while in animal form? I.e. a small bird with a Death Rating of, say, 40? Or is it the case that if the Adept takes more damage as a bird than the bird's natural Death R...

Re: Key knowledge for "common" thread items

as to why more powerful magic is harder to detect... who says it's just blasting out magic energy all over the place? more powerful magic could be more powerful because it is more tightly woven and less of it "leaks" away uselessly. unless the magic has the specific purpose of drawing attention to ...

Re: ED4 Mystic Path Journeyman Knack

So in short: You need the other two talents if you want to use Karma on the same taleent more than once a round, like for example for Avoid Blow.
But you can use the same knack for all talents in the same round.

Re: 4th edition obsidian and blood magic

And here I thought they are just wary of blood oaths, because you are deeply "indepted" to another person. And if something happens to your life rock while at the same time you have to fulfill your blood oath, the obsidian has to make a sacrifice. They's why I stated, that if the trust is big enough...

Re: 4th edition obsidian and blood magic

Anyway, the condition for a group pattern is always that the characters blindly trust each other.
So if one clarifies ingame in advance that the group will stand by the Obsidian in case of a threat to the liferock, or at least not in the way of the Obsidian, there should be no objections.

Re: Avoid Blow, Physical, Defense and Windlings

Just as you noted yourself: Karma can be seen as an addition +4 Step.
+ Your dice can explode.
And what you shouldn't miss either: You no longer fall automatically if Avoid Blow fails. So just 1 strain damage for a second chance.

Re: Balancing Forge Armor/Weapon

We houseruled that some armors are stackable (if it makes sence) like blood pebbles + fernweave. But we also said that only one item can be upgraded. If you go with the "Only the highest value counts"-rule, you still can "cheat". Like a forged blood pebble with mystical armor +8 and a forged fernwea...
