Re: Sharing Adventures

I was thinking more of a library-type resource, like the old Book of Tomorrow or Publishing Trust. There's not anything like that active, is there?

Sharing Adventures

I wonder ... is there a place or a way to share adventures Gamemasters have written for their groups? I'm not interested in starting a Earthdawn site myself, but I occasionally make things I'd like to share and it would be great to see what other people have done. Edit: and also to get feedback! Con...

Re: Shield and Forge Armor, why not?

Another option might be to forge the shield as a weapon rather than armor.

Re: Statistical breakdown

Thanks Mataxes! I knew I could count on you. I do like the way the option makes a really sharp line between magical & non-magical in a player's mind. There don't seem to be as many little fiddly rule differences between skills and talents of the same name as I remember, though, which was one of the ...

Re: Legends of Barsaive: Characters - Errata

I haven't gone through the file in depth, but what a great resource for new groups! Every Players' Guide should include a postcard referring people to it.

Re: Statistical breakdown

Well, the idea is that otherwise the skill and talent would be identical. Whatever the rules are for the talent apply to the skill. I haven't gone through each skill yet to weigh each one, though. At low ranks, the skill may even be better - more reliable.

Re: Statistical breakdown

My thought is to make one global rule for skills vs. talents, rather than individual rules for each skill.

Re: Earthdawn on French TV

Eh, I actually like that people occasionally break into other languages. Gives it nice flavor, reminds me that we are an international community. Based on the other forum, the number of non-English posts is typically negligible, and since this is an actual post about a French-language T.V. show it d...

Statistical breakdown

Hey cats and kittens, I have a question. Seems like I read somewhere that while the average of step 10 is the same as the average roll of step 6 +4 - but! rolling step 10 was more likely to hit higher DNs. And it has a lower chance of all 1s. So the increased step is better against higher DNs and av...
