Re: Airship Altitude

As gamers, we are all pretty familiar with probability distribution. If there is a 1% chance each hour of something happening, it will happen about every 4 days. If there is a one in a thousand chance of it happening each hour, it will happen every 40 days. An officer who wants to have a long caree...

Re: Horror Plane?

From ED Player's Guide 3rd ED. (Emphasis Mine) Horror's Call This dangerous spell summons a Horror from astral space. The magician must learn the Name of the Horror he wishes to call, then carefully inscribes a 4-yard (2-hex) radius circle, painting it white and gold. It specifically calls out the n...

Re: Crystal Ringlet Armour

Yeah, I think it ties into the new 'Armor Bash' and 'Chokeslam' talents they added... :)

Well, higher circle nethermancer can summon horrors from such a plane so they atleast must know its name.
