Re: Post Hornes Rat rewards

Yep. Probably handed out too much xp at the start as pcs getting about 50 xp for roleplaying plus the amount recommended at end of each chapter. In fairness the human characters are manageable but the elf and dwarf are murder machines now. End of EiR seems a good time to wind up the characters and c...

Re: Post Hornes Rat rewards

Had planned to end this campaign after EiR and start fresh characters so the actual rewards they receive will be less relevant I suppose. Taken about 11 mths to do the first 4 parts of Enemy within and characters will have had about 3-4k xp so far which has made the elf mage and dwalf pit fighter a ...

Post Hornes Rat rewards

Just finished The Horned Rat and away to commence The Empire in Ruins. Given all that that party has done for Middeheim and what is expected of them in part 5 I sort of feel that they deserve some sort of formal recognition from the Graf by way of award or title. Any suggestions? The ex beggar in th...

Magic Weapons

One of my PCs has found the magic sword Barrakul in DOTK but failed his WP test to master it.

He passed after a Fortune reroll but he asked if he could have tried again if he increased his WP?

Magic Resistance Talent

When Magic Resistance reduces the SL of the spell by 2 per talent level, can this prevent the spell being cast or just reduce the damage etc?

Changing career tier

Whats everyone's thoughts on when a player can level up a career? Running The Horned Rat and players have been busy with the investigations but two have racked up loads of xp and want to train/level up. They have the contacts and I would normally tell them to wait for an endevour but only half way t...

Re: Magic system info

Running The Horned Rat at the moment and the party's doktor has, in the past 3 weeks, been attacked by small but vicious dogs on two separate occasions (lots of encounters with Rat Catchers) and lost a fate point to the demon hound summoned by Bhar. No prizes for guessing what his phobia is going to...

Elven Mage changing discipline

The party's Elven Mage is learning another discipline/wind and is effectively going back to being an apprentice to do so.

If he wants to learn a spell that he already knows (ie blast) but in the new discipline would this still qualify as learning a new spell?

Re: Strike to stun

Would Strong Back talent assist with the Str v Endurance test to see if the recipient of the blow to the head is stunned? Adds SL to an opposed STR test

Re: NPCs with Luck Talent

Played fully through the prev 3 modules (again after 20 years or so in 1E) and only just started THR. At the speed the party is getting through them I suspect I will have to convert The Empire in Flames from 1E as dont think Cubicle 7 will get their updated version out in time. All good so far but p...

NPCs with Luck Talent

Am running The Horned Rat at the moment and noticed that the Clan Eshin Assassin and one of the Mages has Luck Talent.

I'd always been of the opinion that Fortune points were for the PCs only.

I take it this means that NPCs can, in some cases, get Fortune points?

Healing during combat

How many combat turns does it take for one character to use Heal skill and bandage another up? Physician has Field Dressing talent but seems unrealistic that can all be done in a 10 second combat round.

Rolling a crit in a skill test

If a character rolls a crit for a skill test (athletics or stealth) but still only gets 1SL is still still just a basic pass or a more impressive critical pass? Is this better than getting 4SL for instance?

Aethyric Armour spell

Aethyric Armour spell provides 1AP to each location of caster. Can the AP be increased for each 2SL by overcasting or is this not possible for a Touch Spell?

Re: Resolve/fortune avaible points and maximum pool.

I would think that the it would reduce immediately as you only have access to the fortune points due to your Fate Points.
No fate, no fortune.

Crits while opposing/parrying in melee

The rulebook states "a successful melee test" can cause a critical even in you are defender. Is a crit still caused if you are defending, roll a crit but importantly still lose the opposed melee test (ie get less SL than the attacker)?
