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.

Sounds good. It might be funny for the PCs to fight alongside him and then have the soldiers appearing to save the day, without them knowing why.

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.

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.

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 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: 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.
