Each Adventure begins with a conversation between a player and (at least one) GM, talking about Adventure theme, sta...

Re: Nightflyer's Cloak, what can I turn into?

Who cares if you have the difference between the animals life and your own left after losing your flying form? You drop from whatever height to the ground and as we all know: falling damage is the most critical damage in each roleplaying game -> death :evil: Not every roleplaying game. When a Garou...

Re: Loosing your turn due to encumbrance

AIUI, if your Initiative Step is reduced to zero or lower, you act every other turn on 1.

IMB, If your initiative result is 1 or lower, you go on "rock" and if your initiative result is 2, you go on "not rock". And the bad guy always gets a 0-phase soliloquy.

An interesting possibility is that for all intents and purposes during their wyvern phase, they actually *stop* being magical creatures.
Another interesting possibility is that they are just unruly teenagers, too hepped up on adrenaline and hormones to bother with magic.

Re: Step dice - d8 system

as i recall, the steps in the book account for rolling max value on the die into the average step value. i would imagine that this system messes with that somewhat. Well, it's not an exact distribution match, but it is good enough and well worth it for us. The Expected Value will be close enough th...

Well, the extra success for me already implies that they have beaten their attacker to the punch.
If someone parries your attack well enough to counterattack you, then I highly doubt that you can do the thing back to them in the very same action.
IRL, you absolutely can Riposte a Riposte.

Re: Old ed spells not included?

Ricochet Attack was another combat spell that was pretty powerful and very similar to Lightning Bolt. Figuring out how to make it distinctive and preserve the extra thread mechanic means it didn't make the cut. As written, it's not a good fit for Elementalist and makes more sense as a Wizard spell;...

Re: K'ansanar's tail

Basically, he makes a deal with an Horror to get his tail back. This would imply that he somehow knows that it would no re-grow because, to be honest, who the hell would deal with an Horror so save himself a year worth of dishonor? A deal with a Horror is often a permanent solution to a temporary p...
