Re: Languages

But! *puts on orichalcum foil hat* that’s exactly how the universe would conspire to return something magically significant to the world!

Re: Languages

Oh, I'm overthinking it because I _want_to_, not because I should! :)

I have an ESOL certification, so it's extra interesting to me.

Re: Introduction to 4th ed Earthdawn--time pressing

I really recommend running the quickstart with pregens as a way to introduce everyone to the world, then let them create their own characters. I had a couple players start a game and get really into their characters but not love their disciplines.

Re: Languages

So I'm thinking (again, without any justification from the text or anything) that as the meta types faded as magic dropped, their languages dropped, leaving only assorted human languages. We know there are dozens of human languages actually exist in the world, and they are not magic (I know it's not...

Re: Romance and Seduction

A welcome comment! I don't know that I will right anything like that out. It would be cool to see it fleshed out more if you have anymore thoughts. Would there be mechanical advantages? Could it be expanded to cover non-romantic relationships? (I'm thinking of the contacts mechanics in Shadowrun) I ...
