Re: Item with Thread Weaving bonus

Ninja'd by Anunnaki, but posting anyway.... You almost certainly don't want to conflate Thread Weaving with Spellcasting, as that can too easily overpower Spellcasting (providing little need for magicians to invest in Thread Weaving, which is one of the balances for high-power spells). Are you looki...

Re: Gained talents and improvement

Technically, QAW was a rules question:
[C]an an adepts improve talents gained via Thread items using legend points?
QAI: You're probably right.

Re: Gained talents and improvement

To bring in a little rules-based rationale (RAW, if you will), relevant sentence in bold: Some Thread Ranks provide a bonus to a character’s rank in a talent (but never skill), for example, “+1 rank to Avoid Blow”. If the character does not know the talent in question, he now knows it at the indicat...

Re: Orichalcum (and True Elements)

I'm being pedantic about this, but I've not seen anything that explicitly states everything from the elemental planes are magical. It's an assumption on our part that things from other planes are de facto magical. I think it's reasonable to assume that, but I don't think it can be taken as proof tha...

Post-Mortem is a bit outdated. Are you leaving it behind? Just wondering.
No, I'm planning on updating that, too.

Re: Under the Stars

This actually happened about 5 weeks ago. I still need to write up the adventure log for the game last night.

Maiden rescued, but not all is well. And the mystery deepens.

Re: Orichalcum (and True Elements)

Page 152 of the 4E Companion speaks of the True elements providing the aspects (lightness, heat, etc.) to the item being enchanted and so most likely are magical in-and-of themselves rather than being receptive to specific enchantments (that is, true fire provides the heating aspect of the magic ite...

Re: Orichalcum (and True Elements)

(1) True elements are useful in providing certain properties to enchantments. At the very least, they are amenable to having certain magics tied to them. However, I think the idea is that they themselves provide this property. I'd have to check the companion to see if there is any detail on that. (2...

Re: Trading House Campaign.

Scouting a new trade route is great. A new trade route that specifically undercuts another trading house is better. Nothing like making enemies! Even betterer, part of the new trade route (or all of it) is actually in secret use by another trading company to give them an edge. Oh, and look, you set ...
