Re: Strength and armor based initiative penalties

I've often thought (but never really tested) that the larger weapons (i.e., the ones with higher strength requirements) should have substantially higher damage output. Can't a broadsword basically cut someone in half? And it only does a few more damage points on average than a dagger? It's actually...

Re: Statistical breakdown

Ah, cool. The Living Barsaive - Haven material mentions Foul Folk and Falsemen, so I thought he Foul Folk stats might be around for 4e. I will use Falsemen as a reference. (Also, sent you a PM. :) )

Re: Statistical breakdown

I didn't want to start a whole new thread for this, and it is related to the math I'm running to get a handle on various Boarding/Mass Combat options for the Airship rules. So, do we have updated stats for things like the Horror-scarred Madman, Ork Mercenary, Troll City Watch, etc, for 4th Edition ?...

Re: Your Earthdawn

This lines up with the rough notes I have for those numbers, thanks for the investigation Lys. More data is always appreciated! While not "rare", I would say that these numbers do mean that airship travel in Barsaive is less common than other forms of transport and freight(overland/riverboat), at le...

Re: Statistical breakdown

My house rule is modifying the Result is for Temporary/Situational Modifiers, modifying the Step is for Magic Enhancements, Spending Legend, or Pattern Changes (i.e. more "permanent" changes to the total rating). The reason for this is that the multiple ability Steps that a player has to deal with d...

Re: Dumb Questions

A d6 is the equivalent to a +4 Step Bonus (d6 is step 4 on the chart). While it is no longer important, the Flameweapon die used to cause the wielder 1 damage if it's result was greater than 4 (1st ed had a d4 Flame die, so "if it exploded"). This is no longer the case in 4E, but there is an artifac...
