Re: 2nd -> 4th ed. preparation.

Okey thanks - but why ever use "walk" when you can allways (run) as a Move for the double amount (and then use your Action to sprint on top of that if needed)? On page 165, core rule book, it says: "This means if you have Movement 4, you can normally move 4 squares." Below, in "Moving During Combat...

Re: 4th: timeline, campaign and play order?

it's.....not impossible, but most/all of the adventures in the campaign are written from a "your guys are relative unknowns in the world and no-one suspects a chaos plot right now". as high-level heroes right after the chaos invasion you're gonna want to put some time aside beforehand going through ...

Re: Ghosts of nonhumans

There’s a dwarf ghost in Empire in Flames I think. If I remember correctly, one was a 'friendly' NPC but were there also wights and wraiths, too? A dwarf liche, also. I wonder how that will be changed in the reboot? i think you're thinking of the dragon crag book. which was kind of.......shoddy in ...

Re: 4th ed. combat question - Fighting several opponents

for the player trying to use multiple attacks: run it like a normal turn, then if you are able to trigger the other attack, conduct the second attack as part of the same action during your turn if not required to take it otherwise as the conditions of the bonus attack. since the system is built for ...

Re: 4th ed. combat question - Fighting several opponents

okay, the first thing you need to do is understand: this is going to be messy, the system just doesn't actually think this through. your first option is to home for counterattack damage when defending, either by crits or using the Riposte skill with a Fast weapon. the second option is using feats li...

Re: Basic weapons

so i relegated swords to "no special qualities, no penalties" instead. So you did keep the other qualities for basic weapons? How did that work out? Guess i have to run some test fights to see if it feels "realistic" enough and doesn`t hinder the combat flow. btw: appreciate your feedback as for ho...

Re: Basic weapons

I`m mostly concerned about the Sword - defending quality. On the other hand, all enemies using a sword have the some bonuses. So sword vs sword levels out. Not sure how sword vs any other weapon balances out in the long run. Maybe just half the bonus to a +5% ? if you're using advantage it causes i...

Re: Basic weapons

I fiddled with this for a homebrew article i made- the main problem is that different abilities aren't created equal. i tried changing weapon reach and other things but in the end hack and defensive are much too powerful to hand out as freebies, especially defensive, which surprised me when i tested...

The only useful thing for Petty Magic is to drain advantage from creatures.
that is a pretty massive advantage, actually. really, advantage is so overbalanced it's almost useless for combat flow.

Re: 4th - Magic points?

Yeah, I only found this FAQ2 https://www.cubicle7games.com/4919-2/ that only says that it does not mean you don't have to roll a casting test. And admittedly, language Magick is explicitly mentioned in the talent description. Still, I'm rather sure to have read something at least semi-official that...

Re: 4th - Magic points?

No. If you get Instinctive Diction and Perfect Pitch up, you can cast relatively quickly. IIRC there's a FAQ or Errata that says that Perfect Pitch does not aid with Language Magick. But it does not change the rest of your analysis. there was a discussion where that was a house rule, but last i rea...

Re: TOBCON IV

Zoom has proved to be the mvp of lockdown. Hadn't heard of it before. Our club shifted to online play once our community house shut. Tried roll20, but for all the system based mods you can install, it's clunky and slow. Seems to be the way it's browser based, with info going back and forth. The aud...

Re: Eye for an Eye 4E conversion

good, the only things worth dealing with in that edition in my experience were the meat of the adventures themselves so i'm glad people are converting them forward.

Re: Solutions to Whiffing

if everyone's a whifflord, i'd usually just stick on a +30% "hurry up guys" bonus for most fights, where there's not really meaningful plot stakes.

drachenfels doesn't have a melee skill, which seems a pretty significant mistake. (i suggest fencing and parry, myself)

Re: Who has run both enemy within and doomstones

I liked doomstones more out of the two, but this is mostly because none of my groups wanted to play tew in any real capacity, and the way doomstones is setup lends itself better to groups of mostly unfocused adventurers compared to tew's need for everyone to pay attention to the plot details.

Re: Beyond The Enemy Within campaign, upcoming releases

honestly, i'd assumed C7's marketing was largely divorced from the situation in their warehouses before all this viral trash. at this point i'm assuming the actual delivery date is "an utter mystery to us all until it ships" and you're ordring as a sign of good faith.

Re: Minor deities or local forms of major deities?

Both is common, but it seems to also be a matter of perspective. The major cults often say lesser deities are aspects of their major deities. The minor cults at times accept this, but at times see it as heresy. I somehow remember in the old Realm of Chaos it is more or less stated that all deities ...
