Re: Spells of Legend

Yeah, I hear you on this, but I think that if you don't make stuff explicit in the spell, it leave it open to interpretation which leads to argument which leads to rules lawyering which leads to me banging my head on the table. :) In my own personal Legend variant, I have made it explicit. You need...

Re: Spells of Legend

And here's a simple but terrifying Divine Magic spell: Accelerate Aging Instant, Touch, Rank (Priest), Resist (Resilience) This spell accelerates the aging of a single target creature. The target creature ages 1D4 years per point of Magnitude. The normal physical effects of aging apply. The victim a...

Re: Spells of Legend

It's things like this that have made us move to Mithras where the common magic spells aren't quite so uber as Legend's common magic versions. In my own games, I draw a distinction between between Common Magic and Battle Magic. Battle Magic is not a discrete form of magic. It is a term applied to Co...

Re: Spells of Legend

As a compromise, how about something like this: Battle Cry Magnitude 1, Progressive, Duration (Special) The caster shouts a loud battle cry when casting this spell. They must have a close combat weapon in their hands, ready to attack. For a number of rounds equal to the spell's Magnitude, double the...

Not so sure about Battle Cry and Bladesharp, Battle Cry affects the person and Bladesharp affects the weapon.
Yes...that was essentially my reasoning too.

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

Re: Spells of Legend

An earlier draft had a comment stating that it did not stack with other weapon enhancement spells such as Bladesharp, Bludgeon, or Fireblade. But I took it out as I was n't sure if it was necessary. But I take your point.

Re: Spells of Legend

Thanks for the feedback! It is very helpful. I can see that the wording of the Assay spell doesn't adequately capture my intention. As you have surmised, my goal was to indicate that the spell can't determine any magical properties of a substance. I'll follow your suggestion and redraft it to be mor...

Re: Spells of Legend

It determines the constituent ingredients and the relative amounts of each. It does not provide exact measurements but ap...

Re: Hoping For New Legend Books In 2017

You can never have too many meercats! Seriously though, it would be nice if Matt could drop by and let us know how things stand at the moment. It's been a couple of months since the last update and Mongoose have successfully completed a couple of big projects. Is there any light at the end of the tu...

Re: Hoping For New Legend Books In 2017

One problem Mongoose faces is that the d100 market is more crowded than it was when MRQ II was the only kid on the block. We have BRP, Call of Cthulhu, OpenQuest, Mythras, Revolution d100, Delta Green, Renaissance, the Sabre System, and Raiders of R'yleh. Plus there is new edition of RuneQuest on th...

One thing I ***WOULD*** suggest to you guys who have Matt's ear: The Bundle of Holding !!!!!!! Get him to throw together a "Legend" bundle! Legend + 3x Spider Gods Bride + your stories + the other Legend books. That is a fantastic way to get your books out there and while it would be for charity it...

Re: Hoping For New Legend Books In 2017

I must admit that I'm disappointed about this too. I understand that Mongoose are busy with Traveller and Paranoia and we are unlikely to see new Legend material in the short term, but the ongoing silence about future plans is irritating. We have no idea whether the product line has been abandoned c...

Re: Hoping For New Legend Books In 2017

I have heard back from Matthew. Mongoose won't have any capacity to look at Legend for at least another 6 months, due to Traveller and Paranoia commitments. After that, it's a question of wait and see, I think, as they still might not have the capacity. However, they are still keen on publishing Le...

Gothic Vampires?

I've been playing around with some expanded rules for vampires for a Gothic Horror setting that I'm playing around with. Here are some rough notes that I've started pulling together. Note that these assume a very traditional view of vampirism suitable for a master villain in the style of Dracula. Ob...

Hopefully there will still be an appetite to publish Legend material.
There's still a market for new Legend material - it's just a question of whether it is large enough to sustain the resources needed to keep the system going.

Now that the new edition of Paranoia is out of the way and a couple of the big Traveller releases are over the line, is there any news for new Legend material?

Agreed. But it would be nice if Matt could pop in every now and tell us where we stand now in the production queue. I can understand that Mongoose don't want to lock in specific release dates yet, but knowing that we haven't been forgotten about would be nice! It would be interesting to know whether...
