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.

Re: NPC/PC Character Generation Spreadhseet

Looks Good, but could so with some instructions. It would be useful to be able to select Skill Level, from Novice-hero and have the running total of Free Points used as a run-down, to show how many points you have left. I prefer my weapons to include the damage bonus, for ease of use, it took me a w...

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

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. The PC ran away from the court to become a Ranger, scandalising the court, so has been disowned Prince by day, ranger by night, the Court don't kn...

Re: Atmosphere

We tend to avoid background noise, as we get older it gets more and more difficult to hear over background noise. When PCs enter a place, I give a very quick rundown. "You come into a cave, the walls are a grey slick rock with water running down into a stream that fills the back of the cave", with o...

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.

Re: What levels would you suggest?

A friend asked me to ask here, so I may be on the wrong site, what level's you suggest for The Pcs to be for the final battle with The Campaigns big bad and actual levels for him. Also he's wrote A RPG that's A Legends and Edition 3.5 DAD Hybrid so it sort of counts Legend normally does not have le...

Re: What means would guarantee The Pcs keep their word?

Nothing. As a lawyer once said "A verbal agreement isn't worth the paper it's written on". However, it is a good roleplaying opportunity. The freed slaves, who are presumably now PCs, would be able to argue for their fair share of loot, especially if they have fought in combats or have contributed i...

Re: State of Legend

Earlier in the thread it was mentioned that Mongoose seems to be focusing on mainly non-fantasy, focusing on sci-fi settings. Just look at how nice Traveller is! Why not run with it? Wouldn't it be nice if Legend was revived with d100 Traveller material?! Would that be possible, even? Why would Mon...

Re: State of Legend

I was looking at doing 'Portuguese conquestador' style games. Is the renaissance version worth looking at or shall I just wing it with the legend rules? I'm well up on the historical and arms for the period, just looking for extra 'flavour' really. Renaissance would be good, but Pirates of Legend h...

Re: Spells of Legend

Not so sure about Battle Cry and Bladesharp, Battle Cry affects the person and Bladesharp affects the weapon.

I'd make Battle Cry incompatible with Fanaticism and Berserker, but allow it to be used with Bladesharp.

Re: RPGs similar to Deus Vult?

I'm Italian, and when I was a boy I learned to read English through RPGs, so the idea of using games written in some foreign language is quite familiar to me. In fact, I plan to play Aquelarre from the Spanish edition and Miles Christi from the French original; however, I'm much less familiar with ...

Thank you for the info on your book(s); I'm an old customer of Alephtar, I like their games very much, so I'll definitely try Robyn Hode!

Is there news on any of this? We are now in June, so its 6 months. Alex Green and Solatask had Legend books with Mongoose so is there news on what is happening with them?
My update was in April, so I expect to be stalled again in October.
