Re: Death on the Reik Update

it's really more of a bit of argument for those playing the campaign once again and using meta knowledge to mess with the cult, really. i guess they wanted to discuss it but couldn't find reason enough to put it in a book...

Re: Totaling bonus damage from SL

With RAW and a defending with a low WS, is the expected value of damage reduction still positive? In other words, would it make sense to choose not to roll for defense basically like in ranged combat? Did anyone do a statistical analysis? It's probably depending on the attackers WS. rules as writte...

Re: Totaling bonus damage from SL

pages 514 (opposed tests) and 159 (calculating damage). the final Success Levels result of an opposed test is the difference between the winning and losing rolls, and damage is calculated based on the final SLs generated by a roll, not the roll itself. if it makes you feel any better, i didn't play ...

Re: Totaling bonus damage from SL

rules as written, the damage bonus is always the difference in SLs between the successful attack and failed defense, so your example would be +5.

Re: Endeavours Talent

It is intended as a shortcut for getting a talent you might want to get without spending a long time climbing a career tree you aren't interested in. it's kind of important to understand that while the trappings of the career system still exist, 4th edition's system is much more freeform in it's und...

Re: Parry question

Keep in mind, if its being used in the 2nd hand without the appropriate talent there is a penalty applied. Even in the case of a shield. The skill Melee Parry removes this negative for shields. to clarify what he said, there's a penalty for using a weapon in your off-hand, and using a weapon with t...

Re: Typos, Missing Text & Errors In 4th Edition Books

There are corrections and changes in the later PDF's, so I'd assume at some point a change in the Printers proofs has got to happen. PDF corrections may not be done to the required standard for proper printing or even in the same format needed, so i wouldn't assume anything of future printings unti...

Re: Typos, Missing Text & Errors In 4th Edition Books

So, by default, Cubicle 7 don’t take the opportunity to fix things when they reprint? I can't speak for their plans going forward, only that at the time of release they didn't currently have plans to make any corrections to the initial books in future printings. i'd suggest contacting them about it.

Re: Commoner salaries

the issue there is figuring out who much they sell in a given week, which is unclear without a LOT of fleshing out the area which most players don't want to sit through.

going roughly off the income rules, a stablehand would be brass three (villager) and a barmaid would be silver one (menial servent), and taking the formulae for earning (a week's worth being an average 30 brass for the stablehand, and 5 silver for the barmaid, and assuming the odds of failure is acc...

Re: Magic and Alignment

Off the cuff... It would suggest to me that the practice of magic, to some degree, draws on and/or is influenced by the temperament (or some such) of the practitioner, and that it feeds back upon the practitioner. I also recall it being written somewhere that souls (the souls of the dead at least) ...

Re: Character Creation

rules as written, they are not because you're only allowed to put additional advances into the eight starting skills (page 36: Career skills and Talents). my group agreed that it made sense to allow the normal starting limit of advances for them, but that's not the way the book does it.

Re: Selling

that's referring specifically to selling items acquired used, which sell for much less than full price. it's kind of confusingly worded. rather then changing the price by +/-20% depending on your roll, it looks to apply +/-10% depending on your roll to a base of 30% the value for a new item. i'm not...

Re: Are there more drugs than those listed in the CRB or OWA?

i say just homebrew- while i think there's a few more, i'm pretty sure they're plot-device things for adventures for the most part. in this case it's just not worth rifling through the books hoping the adventure bothers describing it enough to use when that's not the case 90% of the time.
