Re: My house rules

Yes.

The line in the document is:
When attacking add the DB of both weapons together and double the EP lost by the enemy on the Combat Results Table.
Add the DB of both weapons together and then double the EP lost by the enemy on the combat results table.

Re: My house rules

You only double the damage from the combat results table. It reflects the fact they you've hit them with two weapons.

Re: My house rules

Fair enough, thanks for sharing your insights Hellebore. While I have your ear, could you elaborate on your experiences with dual-weapon fighting? More to the point, why multiply the damage? It seems to me that adding DB then multiplying makes any kind of fighting other than dual-wielding weapons w...

Re: My house rules

I'm trying to remember why I wrote it the way I did. From what I can see, my conclusion was that as Shields give CS and the only role CS plays is increasing the damage you do whilst decreasing the amount your opponent does, that granting a higher damage bonus would effectively do the same thing as C...

I too noticed this. I created a combat table the 'right' way around. The link is in this thread:

Re: how do you run Kloon Sages?

One thing that initially bothered me was that they'd be able to imitate Kai and Magi abilities, but then I realised that being Drodarin, they're supposed to have magic in their blood to begin with. Out of curiosity, would that mean that dwarves are magical too? Can you get dwarven spell casters? He...

Re: My house rules

Are you not using the combat table then? It all looks good, but it does seem to stray from the core game quite a lot. I generally work from the perspective of trying to stay within the core game as much as possible - if I find there are more house rules and add ons than original content ... well per...

Re: Darklands Artwork?

just received my copy of this book. Whilst the depth is great, the writing in some places isn't. I don't see much proof reading going on because there is quite a lot of bad grammar and inappropriate word use in the book and not just simple stuff. It almost reads like a poor translation in some case...

Re: My house rules

Nicely put together sir! Although I will use my own house rules regarding weapons and armour (like a fixed Armour bonus to reduced damage each hit), it has given me plenty of food for thought. I do like the idea of weapon qualities, as found in other games, so i will work on those myself.The offica...

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

There is a cut and paste error in book 17. The 2nd paragraph on the page describing Kai Alchemy (with DAWN OF THE DRAGONS at the bottom) where it tells you that you can carry over skills to the next book refers to book 17 as 'the first in the grand master series' and that the next book is number 14....

Re: My house rules

No worries.

Unfortunately I've not yet managed to put my LW gamebook adventure into practice yet, otherwise i would have added any notes and modifications I made during play to this.

Re: My house rules

Just an update. I've changed jobs and so the pdf for my house rules can't be found at the location given in the original post. I've uploaded it to my dropbox account public folder so that hopefully anyone can access it if they wish: https://dl-web.dropbox.com/get/Public/LW%20Magnamund%20Miscellania....

Re: Joe Dever's campaign?

i've always been a sucker for behind the scenes stuff - I enjoyed the ~15 hours of LotR extras more than the film and read the Rivan codex more often than Eddings' actual books. Miniature sketch books are also on my shelf. I would die for a behind the scenes book full of Joe's notes, thoughts, origi...

With my DR system only half the EP counts as DR, so Full Plate has a DR of 4, a Mail Vest has DR2, Helmet DR1 and so on. Does that include weapon damage modifiers? Because without that armour becomes pretty awesome. As was said earlier, the PC even at the greatest difficulty won't take more than 7-...

Rather than just a flat damage reduction per hit, I went with damage reduction per encounter. So if you have 5 pts of armour then you ignore the first 5 pts of damage in an encounter. But also added weapon damages as well. http://www.nationaldinosaurmuseum.com.au/Staff/Warhammer/LW%20Magnamund%20Mis...

I sort of went with that last in my house rules. Armour provides ablative EP per fight. To balance that out somewhat, most weapons have a damage bonus.

Sounds ok but you will be without armour for most of the adventure. The knight loses 8 EP in the first combat and is now without armour unless he repairs it. Unless you said something like the first pt of damage per encounter is taken from armour until the armour's EP is used up. This means the knig...

5 or more re-rolls a session seems a little excessive though. 10 re-rolls per session seems unwieldy.
