Re: "Canonicity" of ED2

I can't provide an official response, but I can point out that there are plenty of things out there that ancient Legends speak of, things hidden in the deep or Horrors that stalk the land leaving tattered remnants of stories. These monstrosities may never find their way into the "official" history r...

Re: Statistical breakdown

Someone with Rank 5 in Melee Weapons skill is actually far more knowledgeable and better trained than the counterpart using the Talent of the same Rank. That person has magic guiding their blows. Which is why it takes weeks to months to level a skill where a Talent is increased immediately (relative...

Re: High-Circle Preview: Archer

I guess what I'm trying to say is that I always try to assume that characters in Earthdawn intrinsically understand the mechanics behind their world and the names for these mechanics, but I don't really do that in any other system.

Re: High-Circle Preview: Archer

We're looking at a new name for Defense. As Morgan commented in one of our back-and-forths, "Names are hard." (At one point one of the Sky Raider Discipline abilities was called "big-ass lightning attack.") Hahaha! Very true. Well, crowdsource the effort? If you want, we fans will supply an endless...

Re: High-Circle Preview: Archer

In case anybody missed it, a look at a couple of the talents in that Archer progression are featured in today's post. Kind of a stealth update. Yes, thanks for the update. However, I don't like the name "Tracer Missile" as tracer rounds are a modern invention for machine guns to show where you were...

Re: Dumb Questions

As far as my understanding goes modifiers simply increase a given step. Is that the case with Flameweapon and similar spells as well or is the additional damage rolled as a separate dice? Two possible rules, both correct. Modifiers either can increase the Step, and you roll that new Step, or they c...

Re: Dumb Questions

I still kinda want a developer to step in and describe what was intended by "indirect attack" in the 4E Displace Self spell, as that is an area of potential benefits that can't be discussed without more clarity.
