Re: Character Traits Idea

I must admit I like having weaknesses in a character that mean something more than RP flavour that gets ignored (as a player), however D&D is bad for not having a positive spin on that personality/physical trait, just a punitive one. You could perhaps make the weaknesses have both a positve and neg...

Re: Running a play-by-post game

Bumping this - we have lost a couple of players and could do with more. No experience/rulebooks necessary just a willingness to post (can be short) a few times a week - more if you want. Twiler will help with everything, us too. It is great fun - we have fought a Dark Agent and Spy in Soren, discove...

Re: Willpower, Kai Monks, and Psychic Abilities...

Additional thoughts: A hero may add a +1 bonus per point of Willpower spent to any test requiring intense mental concentration, for example Mind Over Matter to move an object or trying to recall an obscure piece of knowledge/identify a rare heraldic symbol or text they saw once, etc. Curing = +1WP f...

Lore Spheres - Tweaking the Lore Circles to help Lone Wolf.

Okay, I love tinkering with the rules and I've come up with a way of putting Grand Master Lone Wolf on a par with any other Grand Master, especially if he is without the Sommerswerd. I wanted a way for Original Stats Lone Wolf, after completing Books 1-12, to be able leave Sommerswerd in Safe Keepin...

Re: The Kai Monastery Unveiled!

A question, remembering I'm a noob at Lone Wolf: Is there only one Kai Monastery in all of Magnamund? >>ReaperWolf Yes, that's why it was so easy for the First Order of the Kai to be massacred at Fehmarn MS5050 because they were all in the one place at that one time. However, just to confuse things...

Re: A goofy observation & die 0-9...

The thing is in the Books '0' is Wild like an Ace - sometimes it is very beneficial sometimes not. For instance I rule that when you fire an Arrow you imediately pick a Second Random Number, if the Second is HIGHER than the Arrow is retrievable - so a '0' on the Combat results would indicate a Clean...

Re: Lightning Hand management?

A spellcaster can spend additional Willpower to multiply the damage dealt to an enemy pretty much guaranteeing annihilating the target.>>ReaperWolf That's the other thing. You multiply the damage done only by the number of ADDITIONAL Willpower spent. The Spell initially costs 1 Willpower, to get th...

Re: Lightning Hand management?

Forgot to mention when Lone Wolf first meets the Wizard Banedon at the ruins of Raumas, Banedon is using multiple Lightning Hand spells on a Giak war-party twenty five to thirty strong. Many Giaks lie dead in the ruins but Banedon is grateful for Lone Wolf's appearance because he freely admits his p...

Re: Lightning Hand management?

Get the bad guys to bring a friend if it is too easy. Plus ensure the adventure has plenty of other Willpower costing opportunities - if fighting is pretty much all the Brother can do then he'll save all his Willpower for that. Pay attention to the other four spells or more that they have and tempt ...

Re: Armor as healing?

Most players, and Project Aon, go by the ruling that as the character is not dead removing Armour will take the character down to a minimum of 1EP in these circumstances.

Re: Various questions about the multiplayer game

Here's my two penneth. 1. You could argue Magic Mistrust affects all magic affecting the Ice Barbarian, whether they want it to or not. So the difficulty test of say a Healing Spell, which normally does not require a test, would purely be the Rank as difficulty. A combat spell like Lightning Hand us...

Re: Book 17 The Deathlord of Ixia - What's Changed?

You could always treat Lone Wolf like a New Order Grand Master Bk13+. Re-roll your stats as per GM rules: CS = 25+Random Number. EP = 30+Random Number. HOWEVER, Curing only provides a MAXIMUM of 10EP healed through numbered sections without combat and you LOSE the Archmaster's Battleheal +20EP once ...

Laumspur can be used anytime - the bit about 'after combat' was just there I think to help people learning the rules for the first time. Well that's what I think.

Re: Book 17 The Deathlord of Ixia - What's Changed?

I have a question. In book 18, sect 98 is referring to the Sommerswerd, that "Due to the increased power of your sword while upon the Plane of Darkness, you may add 4 to your COMBAT SKILL for the duration of this fight." Does it mean you should use this bonus in book 17 also? It would be useful esp...
