Re: Praise for 4th edition Earthdawn

I've been very "heads down" in my re-design notes, missed this thread. I AGREE. ED4 is FANTASTIC. It the cleanest implementation of the CoreStep system thus far, and it's actually been very good to work with (very standardized concepts.mechanics) while I re-design the Airship rules (so close to a wo...

Re: ED4 Chase scenes

Now I have the image of an Obsidimon Troubador with one of those woven headdresses that looks like dreadlocks in my head. :lol: I've been taking notes from this thread, as part of the Airship rules-redesign involves a chase mechanic that I would like to make generally applicable. Let me gather some ...

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...
