Re: Monster/Enemy NPC combat actionz

Adversaries in the Bestiary have one Move, one Action and Free Actions at their disposal, similar to the PCs. They can Charge, Attack, disangage, use Deathblow etc. up to what the GM chooses. They can also activate Free attacks by spending Advantage via traits such as Horns , Bite, Breath, Vomit etc...

Re: Investigator's skills

You can always discuss it with your GM and for instance train Research with endeavour if your GM thinks it fits. Since it is an Advanced Skill and you need at least one Advance to be able to test it. Lore (any) or any Skill (any) means you can pick one specialization and that choice is locked for th...

Re: Strike to stun

Size Rules should apply since it says „OpposedStrength tests or similar”. Other than that I also allow the Strong Back talent to give SL to the test. The Strike to Stun is already strong enough (no penalty to Called Head hits AND +1SL / level to successful Melee when striking to stun) . No need to b...

Re: Strike to stun

1. Yes. The talent bonus is good to have to get extra SL in the opposed Test and thus for more damage, but won’t give you bonus to the Opposed Str/Endurance. And it is Characteristic vs Skill test, typically Skill is much higher than the Characteristic, so the defender can have the upper hand and if...

Re: Strike to stun

1. RAW, the hit is resolved first as normal. Then you attempt the Opposed Str/Endurance from the Pummel quality. 2. It’s not that clear in the RAW, but since it is an opposed Test, you will lose all Advantage when losing it. I would rule either use Advantage and lose Advantage, or do not apply Advan...

Correct to both, there is no maximum SL bonus and Defensive Qualities stack as explained in the FAQ.

Re: Talents and SL

That’s the RAW and the whole point of advancing few levels in appropiate talents. However if you are afraid this will swing the balance in combat without a need to constantly adjusting combat powers of the NPCs, you could for instance limit Talents to max one Talent level per Career level but give t...

Re: Talents and SL

Yes, he does, by rolling egual or under his Skill of 60. He wins the Opposed Test by +1SL, scoring +4SL (+1SL from the Test, +1SL from the Precise and +2SL from the Riposte) against Grorix’ +3SL, and can deal damage via Riposte. However , the Precise quality doesn’t give +10 to the Test, but +1SL to...

Re: Aethyric Armour spell

Short answer - no. Long: Normally a wizard can increase Range, AoE, Targets or Duration of the spell by its initial value listed in the spell. Some spells have additional options in the spell description. Since Additional AP is none of the default Overcast options, and it is not listed as an extra O...

Re: 4e Ingredients for Petty Magic

Next time he rolls a double on the Casting test, tell him that the ingredient didn’t work, it was not consumed, and then proceed rolling on the Miscast Table.

Petty Spells do not require ingredients.

Re: The Beast Form spell

Your spell description seems to be missing a part of it. The last sentence in my book reads: ”If you have lost any Wounds when the spell ends, you lose the same number of Wounds when you revert to your true form, to a minimum of 0 Wounds.” This should answer question 3. Any Critical suffered when in...

Re: Parry question

there is no „parry” skill in 4e. in the unarmed combat PC / NPC use Melee (Brawling) or test WS if they don’t have the skill And yes they can „parry” or rather defend against attacks. A character can make a defensive test or what you call „parry” in the opposed Melee test using whatever Melee skill ...

Re: Free attack question

Yes, he may oppose any Free attack as normal. Unless the defender is fleeing, in which case it is unopposed.

Yes, with -10 penalty, while the attacker gets additional +1 Advantage before rolling the test.

Yes, with -10 penalty, while the attacker gets +20.
