Re: Fourth Edition Errata, Clarifications, and FAQs

i don't think there is strictly speaking any such thing as a spell damage test. there are effect tests, some of which are used to determine the amount of damage a spell deals, but not actual damage tests. i could be wrong though.

Re: Alchemy and the players . . .

i would suspect a major element would also be what you're using it on. there's a big difference where i live at least between poisoning rats or insects and poisoning humans or dogs (especially dogs that are pets, but i think people would react much more strongly to poisoning wild dogs around here th...

Re: Line of sight for casting

i'm not a dev, but on your 4th question, presuming you meant heat sight... thermal vision does not generally speaking penetrate solid objects. if you are on one side of a wall, and there is a person on the other side of the wall, you will not see them unless perhaps they've been leaning against the ...
