Re: What prices would you suggest

Under the Craft Skill, Legend says " A critical success allows the item being crafted to be of superior quality, in terms of durability, value or utility (choose one area of excellence). In terms of durability, it has additional AP and HP, distributed as the Adventurer sees fit, equal to the critica...

Re: Hints, tips and advise for a newbie Legends GM

Legend Tips: Have plenty of healing, perhaps as spells, perhaps as magical items or common items. Don't die on dead - Have the PCs linger on a bit until someone can heal them. Don't be afraid of using new spells or abilities that aren't in the rules. Don't skimp on Experience Points. Say Yes rather ...

Re: How to roleplay it

It doesn't matter how the Thief survived. The Surviving Thief could spin a tale of how the PC survived and everyone should either believe or not believe it.

We have always separated Player Knowledge and Character Knowledge in our games.

Re: A question on Paladins

For me, no, that would not stop someone from being a Paladin.

Doing it all the while might rung alarm bells, though.

In any case, I am not keen on a just losing the status. I prefer them having to fave the music, have a trial and then be ritually stripped of their status.

Re: How to justify it and what freebies to hand out?

The trouble is, I think, that you are asking D&D questions in a Legend Forum. So, the answers you get are either very generic or geared up to Legend.

If you were interested in how to do it in Classic Fantasy, for example, that might be easier to answer.

Re: How would it work?

Various nobles were elected historically. The Holy Roman Emperor was elected by a council of Electors. I think that some of the Frankish/Germanic kings were elected, but cannot remember for sure. In some ways, it makes a lot of sense. You don't get a weak idiot king just because he is the firstborn ...

Re: INT and POW of Animals

Normal animals have a Fixed INT, which is the same for all members of that type of animal. The higher the Fixed INT, the more intelligent that species. I think Chimpanzees have a very INT, as do Herd Men in Glorantha. One thing that the INT does is measure how relatively intelligent animals are. It ...

Re: Would they be cursed?

I'd say that it depends on the story.

You might have it that drinking Unicorn Blood carries a curse, no matter what, or you might say that it depends on how the blood is obtained.

Re: Would he keep his powers?

I would say that a Paladin convicted of a serious enough crime to lose the paladin Status would no longer be a Paladin, even if the paladin is innocent of the crime.

However, the PC could Quest to prove innocence and regain the Paladin Status, even if that isn't officially in the rules.

Re: Armour Enchantment

So, for example, if you enchanted a suit of armour with Damsge Resistance (8) and also had a Ring of Protection 2 would they stack? I don't think so, as neither is a permanent effect. So, if you gave the armour a Damage Resistance 8 matrix, you could easily cast that spell, or you could cast Protec...

Re: Armour Enchantment

No, armouring enchantment has always been more expensive than Common Magic Matrices.

If you have a suit of enchanted armour, you can cast Protection on top, to get even more armour. With a Protection matrix, you can't, as you are limited to that spell.

There are lots of ways to justify a Prince being a PC. All princes spend some years adventuring, to get it out of their system and learn valuable skills.

Re: If Heaven is Norwich, hell is...

I don't know anything about Neverwinter, but that premise would work.

the PCs are shipwrecked and attacked by small groups of undead. They see a city in the distance and probably head towards it for safety.

Works for me.
