Re: Recommended Reading?

Correct. I don't bash Tolkien and his works but the popularity of it. Middle Earth was inspired by Anglo-Saxon, Norse, and Germanic mythologies, but still it was Tolkien's own creation. Sad thing is that this is what other fantasy stories are influenced rather than the real mythologies and folklore...

Really? Just am planning to get this and hoping it includes the adventures as well.

Re: Need help with a scenario

How far have you got with this game? We had to finish the last adventure first, which was "Spider God's Bride". The final battle took unexpected turn, when 2/3 of the adventurers were paralized for few days (not even able to speak). So the only survivor, not the sharpest pencil in the box, tried hi...

Re: Need help with a scenario

Yeah, insight skill is used for the artifact. @Hopeless Damn good! This is very good alternative way to solve the plot. It was actually suggested in the adventure, that a "sage" could point the adventures to the right direction. This solution fits perfectly! But yes, I still do recommend picking it ...

Re: Need help with a scenario

They may not know much of the artifacts (when failing skillcheck). Just should get a hint that they need to travel far south, where the artifact can be used. The artifacts are just key to magical lock. The players must find out that they only have one piece of the key. And they don't know that the N...

Re: Need help with a scenario

While the artifacts are magical, they are designed to be separated and not found. So they should not pull the owners together. Another thing I don't want to do is give visions/command players to go somewhere and do something they don't choose to do. I want to play it out logically, that the players ...

In the set up, the PCs have one piece of artifact and totaly strangers NPCs (disguised merchants) have other piece of artifact. The only way the scenario to work is if th...

Re: Urban Fantasy

When talking about urban fantasy, Vampire the Masquarade is not far off, is it? So I have been thinking about playing evil (monster) characters, not necessery in modern world. Legend could be awesome Vampire Dark Ages type of game. I would want to use Blood Magic book, with powerful spells, but I am...

Re: Bronze weapons

When I googled about this topic, it is even more unclear. In this setting bronze should logically be inferior and cheaper, but historically it was not so. They moved to iron weapons because bronze was expensive and also the first iron weapons were not necessarily better in quality. But it is more fu...

Bronze weapons

As I start to play the Spider God's Bride, in this setting, the majority of cultures use bronze weapons. How would they differ compared to the regulard weapons in the core Legen book? How to simulate the affects of bronze vs bronze and bronze vs iron weapons? I would imagine the HP and AP of the wea...

Re: Arcania of Legend: Necromancy and Demonology

Will necromancy and demonology be together in one source book?

I would really dig a big magic book with all the arcanias of legend together in one volume: blood magic, necromancy, demonology, etc.

Also, the Advanced Sorcery for Magic World (d100 compatible) will be available soon, which is awesome.

Re: Large spear questions

Ok, replying to myself. RQ6 actually has cleared up these rules a bit.

Engage CA, which is optional rule, must only be used when the target has a weapon with a bigger reach. So it is not needed, when two fighters with the same-reach weapon are battling.

Re: Large spear questions

In your scenario above, A would have to spend the CA to close in, changing the range of the encounter to Close. Once A is within reach of B to attack with his knife, B is reduced to the options Attack (using the spear as a quarterstaff, possibly to attempt a Defensive CM such as Bash, Pin Weapon or...

Re: Large spear questions

I see it in real life terms, that's why I am asking it. I am having some difficulties find all the rules from the book. So when I say as a GM, "you can't parry that", I must point to a specific rule about it. When the combat style is shield and spear, he can parry knife with shield, right? But if I ...

Sorry to bug you again with my basic questions, but I am trying to get myself once again started in Legend and it has been a while. So one of the players took large spear as a weapon. What should I take into consideration with this weapon? Advantages and disadvantages? As I understand, having a larg...

Re: Firing into a Crowd

But that is the point! In this example, one always chooses the "choose location" combat maneuver, when hits. So there is no way to hit the covered location, unless one is really careless.
