Re: Next Book Announced! Kickstarter Launch June 10!

Mystic Paths print books: The printer has the files (both internal "guts" and various covers) for the book and is in the process of making them. When we have a delivery/shipping date we will announce it. Iopos KS/Release: We're trying to figure out the date for the Kickstarter, because Kickstarters ...

Re: Windlings, shields and weight

Shields sized for a windling follow the same rules as clothing and armor.

Re: Loosing your turn due to encumbrance

I consider Initiative more of an effect/result test, meaning the "Rule of One" doesn't apply -- especially because most characters will have single-die Initiative steps, making that result even more likely.

It's needlessly punitive -- you're already going last, why layer more on top of it?

Re: Fourth Edition Errata, Clarifications, and FAQs

I was also wondering about the inconsistencies among creatures movement in the GMG. Some creatures have (Swim X) others have (Swimming X) and some have (Climb X) while others have (Climbing X). Was this a simple oversight or is there some reason for the distinction that I am missing? Just sloppy co...

Re: Is Great Leap, by itself, the entirety of a movement action?

I would allow "standard" movement in addition to the Great Leap. Wow. I had never even considered that it would allow a total bonus movement, and that you could leap up to your movement rate, then use your normal movement action to move up to your normal movement rate on the ground, and still have ...

Re: Spoiler question (My players stay out of this thread!)

I'm talking about the rose that the queen gives the party, not the pattern item for Wyrm Wood that Hermion sends to the Blood Wood. I understand that, and to answer your original question: No, there wasn't any follow-up or continuing plot thread related to that in other books. I was more wondering ...

Re: Spoiler question (My players stay out of this thread!)

I'm going to hint at a huge setting spoiler, so forgive me for not providing more. There are 2 magical 'everliving' roses, and they are at the heart of one of the grudges between the Blood Wood and Thera - with ties going back to the 2nd Age Dragon politics... they pop up again in Barsaive at War (...

Re: Question: 'Nobody Here' spell

Thinking of "figment" as only applying to one sense is... not technically wrong? But not exactly right either.

The better distinction is that "Illusions" (as defined by the keyword) are masquerading as "real", where "Figments" are not.
