Re: [ED4] Same spell multiple times on one target - what happens?

The opposite is true: effects that do stack are listed in the description. Multiple instances of the same spell only used the "biggest" effect (absolute value). Stacking multiple Mind Daggers on the same target without changing the penalty effectively increases the duration; as one runs out, there ...

Re: Facing and blindside

i've yet to see someone fight in such a way that they are up against two opponents and spend most of their time facing in the direction of neither of them, relying entirely on their peripheral vision against both enemies. facing is more dynamic than can be shown in a turn-based game, but so is attac...

Re: Facing and blindside

option B (though as noted, 2 attackers would be sufficient for one of them to blindside) makes the most sense to me barring extraordinary circumstances.

Re: Animal Trainnig vs Animal Talk

not liking the answers i give is not the same thing as me not addressing your points. but anyways, i'm quite content after this to just not bother having conversations with you in the future. i could do without the ad hominem. so first off, people have EXPLICITLY compared griffins to animals that ar...

Re: Animal Trainnig vs Animal Talk

you pretty much don't really tame *any* creature in adulthood. animal taming does it anyways. and if you can train a griffin to gladly take a rider on its back, it seems improbable that it is the result of immutable biology. so how are they suddenly developing this absolute hatred for taking a rider...

Re: Animal Trainnig vs Animal Talk

only one type of griffin refuses to permit people to sit on its back though. specifically, the type that is not being asked about. instead, we are talking about the type of griffin that is in direct contrast to those ones. nothing says that regular griffins refuse to let anyone sit on their back, so...

Re: Animal Trainnig vs Animal Talk

only jungle griffins say they won't tolerate someone on their back (note: it doesn't say you can't do it, just that they won't permit it, so i'd assume someone probably *has* managed to very briefly ride a jungle griffin and then, as the description of the jungle griffin indicates, were killed and e...

Re: Animal Trainnig vs Animal Talk

i would still allow regular griffins to be trained, as adults, by adepts. while there is an element of normal training, you are essentially magically modifying the creature. you can improve their talents and skills (potentially including talents or skills they don't natively have but could theoretic...

Re: Animal Trainnig vs Animal Talk

at most, the restriction on starting young and taking years applies to them acting as mounts. other than that, the only word on them is that they are difficult to train, and as i've already pointed out, that is true; the kinds of people that can reliably train griffins are going to either be extreme...
