Re: High resolution Barsaive map image

It was just noticed in Discord chat that the 4e map has the same "days walking riding, airship traevl distance" scales copy&pasted from the 3e map. The 3 map shows less territory overall, and this means it's key is the wrong scale for the 4e map. The correct scale of the key is as shown in my Atlas ...

Re: Questions for movement: Summon Bone Spirit

"Unless otherwise occupied or commanded the spirit will follow you at a 10 yd distance on your init." should work out good, yeah. Also, don't underestimate the usefulness of Reserved Actions. These add +2 to your target number but allow interrupt-effects. The setup would be different depending on si...

Re: Spellcasting skill

I really love the ideas here. We played around with spellcasting-as-a-skill in 1e, but left it behind when the campaign went to 2e. I'm really liking the idea of attaining a 0 thread spell to a matrix object and handing it to another spellcaster. There's really nothing in the metaphysics that spoils...

Re: Wyvern: Animal?

I always got from the hints that they are a magical creature related to dragons (wyvern skins and stinger venom being magical ingredients for certain things), _and_ that <spoilers> adolescent dragons spend time looking like & flying around with wyvern flocks</spoilers>.

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

Oh, back when I ran some of the 1e stuff and had the Shadowrun references, I thought the Rose Crystal and the Everliving Flower were duplicates of each other, but that isn't actually referenced.

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 (2...

Re: Training skills?

It really depends on how you want to position Adepts socially in all the societies. If non-Adepts can learn Skills from an Adept who has the Talent, then Adepts are often found leading/teaching bands of non-adepts. Warrior-bands, Garlen-cults, etc, etc will have well-trained non-Adept members. Other...
