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.

Re: New LoB Adventures (Heavy Metal Queen, Games of the Hungry)

For both 1 & 2: The only ETA I can give right now is "Soon," but both will eventually be on DriveThru. (Our store tech person need to set them up and turning them on. Given what's going on in the world right now, and his day gig as a network admin, I don't know what his time management allows for at...

If a sufficiently sophisticated horror gets it's hooks into your your group pattern, you, and everybody in the group might be screwed.
This is basically the backstory premise behind the adventure collection Blades.

Re: 4th edition obsidian and blood magic

And you can feel free to downplay that for the sake of gameplay. I understand how some people can find it troublesome to keep your obsidiman character out of a group pattern, and thereby miss out on the power boost that can go along with it. The extent to which a group is comfortable with mechanical...

Re: Balancing Astral sight

This is not RAW, but I generally allow Astral Sight to see stuff in Astral regardless of whether you beat the MD. You can see stuff in astral space even if you don't beat the Mystic Defense.

Re: Balancing Astral sight

In his interpretation I could sense moods, lies, magic, detect Tehran spies... I’d be i...

Re: Number of Spell

Yeah, Piracy! It has seduced me to buy so many physical books that I would never have known without it. (Live on the country side, no real rpg shop close) Please don't advocate for piracy, or post links to piracy sites. Especially when legitimate e-book versions are available. Especially on the sit...
