Re: What rank would he hold?

Military Rank? Supreme Commander.

Legend Rank? Hero. It isn't on the list of Ranks, but you just add an extra level.

Re: Please give me advise

This could end in several ways: The PCs investigate, find there are no Undead and go away, leaving the village to its fate. The PCs investigate, find there are no Undead, kill the Illusionist and leave, happy they have solved the case. The PCs investigate, find there are no Undead, kill the Illusion...

Crossing the Streams

Many years ago, fans of Glorantha had an attitude that D20 games wouldn’t fit in Glorantha, as Classes and Levels don’t work. Then came 13th Age Glorantha to disprove that notion. Also, many people in the D100 space looked down on D20 games as Classes and Levels don’t work with D100. Then came Class...

Re: What rank would the commander have?

My friend claims she's decide to increase the army her Pcs will serve in to 1 that masses 64 very small companies, each 60 personnel strong. Does that change the commanders rank? Not really. Fantasy Ranks are very vague anyway. It's difficult fitting modernish ranks such as Captain, Lieutenant, Maj...

Re: What rank would the commander have?

Sounds as though that's a Brigade made of between 2-6 Battalions, so you might call the leader a Brigadier.

Historically, a Duke or other noble would command such an army, and wouldn't have a rank as such, but would just be Duke Smith or Baron Jones.

Re: Legend OGL

The Legend SRD has always been the Legend Core Rulebooks, rather than a plain old document. What happened on the Chaosium thread, I think, was that someone could not see Legend listed as an OGL set of rules, so assumed that it was no longer OGL. Now, we all know that Matthew Sprange has stated on ma...

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.

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.

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.
