longing curse for Blood Elves?

Post by Michael » Mon Oct 14, 2019 3:53 pm

Just finished reading the Elven nations book and a player made a blood elf. 1 month has passed so now he needs to make a longing test.

However, the text is not clear as to what the actual step rolled is other than it increases by +1 each month.

Am I missing something?
thanks

Oh, wow, this became much more hardcore than described in the old Blood Wood book :shock:
Guess I have to overthink how I'm playing my Blood Elve now..
And longer travels outside of Barsaive became somewhat impossible :?

And yes, you are right, I can't find anything about it either.
In the older edition it was a willpower test you have to roll. So I think it's still the same.
And having to roll against your own Magic Defense is already quite impossible, even without the increase of +1 after each month.

well, i doubt it's supposed to be completely and utterly crippling, so i would imagine it probably starts relatively low and achievable and then builds up to gradually be nigh impossible.

Greetings,

The Step is listed in the blood elf entry earlier on the page:

"Longing: A side effect of the Ritual of Thorns is all blood elves are afflicted with Longing (Blood Wood, 3)."

In this case, it's Step 3.

Hopefully this answers everything.

Best regards,

Morgan

Oh, whoops, I misread the fail and succeed part. Didn't say anything either :oops:
