Re: quick question on additional threads

Pretty good analysis, actually, but one point: (and a versatile human will only be able to manage it for a single weapon). A character who knows another magician's thread weaving through Versatility can't take advantage of extra threads at all. They are not a member of the Discipline, and so do not ...

Re: quick question on additional threads

Can someone explain to me the limit of additional threads. Why is there a limit of additional threads depending on the adepts circle. In my opinion there is no difference to a bonus like adding +2 to damage by throwing an extra success in melee weapons. What is your opinion? Haven’t thought it thro...

Re: Physical vs Mystical damage

In ED4 at least, the effect test info in the spell's stat block should provide that information.

For example:

Earth Darts
Effect: Will+3/Physical

Damage is reduced by Physical Armor.

Ephemeral Bolt
Effect: Will+4/Mystic

Damage is reduced by Mystic Armor.

Shields sized for a windling follow the same rules as clothing and armor.

Re: Loosing your turn due to encumbrance

I consider Initiative more of an effect/result test, meaning the "Rule of One" doesn't apply -- especially because most characters will have single-die Initiative steps, making that result even more likely.

It's needlessly punitive -- you're already going last, why layer more on top of it?

Re: Fourth Edition Errata, Clarifications, and FAQs

I was also wondering about the inconsistencies among creatures movement in the GMG. Some creatures have (Swim X) others have (Swimming X) and some have (Climb X) while others have (Climbing X). Was this a simple oversight or is there some reason for the distinction that I am missing? Just sloppy co...

Re: Is Great Leap, by itself, the entirety of a movement action?

I would allow "standard" movement in addition to the Great Leap. Wow. I had never even considered that it would allow a total bonus movement, and that you could leap up to your movement rate, then use your normal movement action to move up to your normal movement rate on the ground, and still have ...
