Re: Questors

On top of my head, I can't think of any Questor who would have a power similar to 'turn undead' (perhaps Garlen?). The Nethermancer Disciplines have things a bit similar to that tho.

Re: How do Non-Adepts Journey on the Wheel? (Elvish Spiritual Belief)

What bothered me far more was that almost all the elves named follow other disciplines than needed for the Journey on the Wheel. So the Bloodwood's / Wyrmwood's palace, the (previous) centre of the elvish culture, were all disbelievers? :| I would have liked a few sentences how it came to the disci...

Re: Stealth and Surprise

My opinion on surprise is 'I was not expecting to be in combat right now'. If I'm caught in an ambush (and fail my PER/Awareness test), I'm surprised for this round and this round only. I will NOT be (mechanically) surprised again for the full duration of the fight. Yes, if fell in an ambush of cada...

Re: Nice Thread Scythan Axe, or Lore from Scytha

The only other references I know of Scytha is in the Explorer’s Guide to Barsaive (the ‘blue book’ of the 1st edition Barsaive Campaign Set) around page 96-97 but its not much.

Re: Combat Fury

3rd edition Combat Fury is written the same way, however Classic edition says: 'While under the effect of this spell, the character can only make close combat attacks; no ranged or spell combat attacks are allowed .' So, my guess is that it just mean that the only kind of ATTACK that you can do whil...

Re: Key knowledge for "common" thread items

It depends, of course, what you mean by a 'common' thread item. Your example of 'Excalibur' would definitely NOT be a 'common' thread item. 'Excalibur' would be widely known and its so would be its history thus, since the first key knowledge is always to find the name, that should not be much of a p...

The knacks do exactly what they say: You can spend Karma on a talent learned through Versatility once per round. If you have all three, you can only use one at a time.
Then I fail to understand why there is 3 knacks that does the exact same thing while not being able to 'stack'.

Re: ED4 Mystic Path Journeyman Knack

My understanding is that from the 'The adept can spend a Karma point on a talent learned through Versatility' it means that each of those knacks allows you to chose ONE talent (learned through Versatility) where you can use Karma on. So, for example, an Adept that has Rank 10 in Versatility could us...

Re: 4th edition obsidian and blood magic

That would mean that group patterns for large groups are just another word for suicide. I'd see that as a bit like computer networking: - Having a computer completely disconnected from any network is completely safe.... and not that useful. - Being connected to the internet through a small lan make...

Re: 4th edition obsidian and blood magic

There is little 'racial lore' in 4th edition yet beside the tidbits race description in the Players Guide. However, lore from previous edition is considered canon. Thus, the data concerning obsidimen being reluctant to use blood magic (beside living armor) found in the 1st edition Denizens of Earthd...
