Re: Teamwork Tests, Dagger Talent

I like the close-in more than blade juggle. Just the bookkeeping of blade juggle with all these numbers is already a no-go. Regarding the teamwork, I can see good aspects in both proposals. I guess one would have to do the math in order to see how an journeyman adept (step 14) is augmented by 5 novi...

Re: Old ed spells not included?

Am I the only person who used Throne of Air for the dogde abilty? It was an extremely powerful spell. And I guess it was cut because of exactly this reason. Each other casters also lost their spells to dogde with spellcasting. :cry: No, I can assure you this spell has frustrated more than one sword...

Re: Number of Spell

I beg to differ. :geek: Page 147 Earthdawn 2.Edition LRG „... .Each time a character advances to a new circle they also learn a number of new spell levels equal to twice the new Circle without a Legend point cost. Depending on the arrengements made during training, the character can learn any spell...

Re: +1 for each additional target

Yes. One can wonderfully create arguments for either allowing „cherry picking“ targeting or not.

It does not matter too much as your opponents can do the same.

Re: Number of Spell

I am not sure but I think in previous editions there was a rule that you get two times the new circle as „spell points“ and every spell‘s cost was its circle. So you level into 5th circle you get 10 points to buy one circle 5, one circle 3 and one circle 2 spell. That's not from any published editi...

Re: Experiences with High Circle groups?

You're saying that survivability scales faster than damage? I would have guessed the opposite... Not sure whether you refer to me, but I meant that the complexity of a fight increases if the enemy is to be interesting for a circle 11 group. The damage output scales faster than the death threshold, ...

Re: Experiences with High Circle groups?

Avoiding the tiresome combat. Maybe a few combat rounds are enough to bring everyone past a beast that guards an entrance where it does not fit it. Maybe the characters need to free a hostage, so they do not want to get caught up in lengthy combat. Maybe there is a tactical level of combat higher th...

Re: Experiences with High Circle groups?

The highest circle my old group has reached was actually 11. Despite the high circle, it was still difficult for them to uncover a murderer. And just because you can kill potentially every namegiver around you, it brings extra responsibility. Go find the Earthdawn, go to the Netherworlds, steal a so...

Re: Alternate Discipline Talents

We do it like this with one little extra rule: A talent that is available by original rules from a certain circle onwards, can only be taken once this circle in this discipline is reached. The circle 8 discipline talent can hence not be taken upon circle 5. That's a good idea, but I don't think tha...
