Re: Much Ado About Nothing

I don't really want to get into the overall discussion here but wanted to add my own eperience based on the OP. To set the baseline: I have been playing ED 2 regularly with the same group for well over 6 years now. We were basically the same group with some characters actually existing for the entir...

Re: House rules for more power and less fiddling

I am certainly one of those players from whom these rules would never work. Not only do these house rules significantly alter gameplay, as far as I am concern they also break the fluff of earthdawn.

Re: Claw Shaped tails?

I've had this case in a previous game and we also handled it through a knack.

Re: High Circle Preview: Weaponsmith

Personally, I am super excited for the Weaponsmith. I used to play one in 2nd edition and it always bothered me that he was basically a giant damage sponge for physical and especially magical damage but had very little cababilities to retaliate. Or just do things in combat in general. This also wasn...

Re: New Novice/journeyman spells?

Re: Spliced Weave

The way I see it, Spliced Weave is very powerful and comes late for a reason. Concise Casting and Spliced Weave basically allow you to cast multiple spells per round. Getting Concise Casting first enables you to cast 0 Thread spells at first and later on Spliced Weave upgrades this to casting multip...
