Talk about shooting my own argument in the foot! "Lived" = Life. Should have put 'existed' if talking about Undead. I think I am coming around to your way of thinking Zorkaan!

Re: Will Mongoose be fixing Book 17 ?

I agree about Death being a magic power - the books are rife with quotes where the magic of Naar is described as Necromancy/the users Necromancers. You certainly have given food for thought and I am now uncertain as to my initial assumption that Ixiataaga was 'obviously' Undead! I tell you what, it ...

Re: Will Mongoose be fixing Book 17 ?

It's certainly interesting listening to your ideas. As far as I know it does not anywhere literally state 'Ixiataaga is Undead'. I think it strongly implies it but you are correct it doesn't say it. My other thought is on the use of Lord. Ixiataaga is described as a Deathlord; now this does not stat...

Re: Will Mongoose be fixing Book 17 ?

Spoiler - the Deathlord's minions convert Drakkarim & Lencians, etc. into Undead creatures - it just doesn't make sense for him to be a living being declaring war on all living beings via his Undead servants (they would want him destroyed too, could make interesting story!).

Re: Will Mongoose be fixing Book 17 ?

I agree that Tagazin is a demon and not undead and therefore the Douple EP bonus from Sommerswerd/Dessi Stone does not apply but I struggle to understand how anyone can think the Ixian Deathlord Ixiataaga is not undead. ZuTAAGon is Undead in Giak. The goat-skull and funereal robe and stench of death...

Darklands. Wow I didn't realise, I thought I wouldn't need it as I have the D20 but after the explanation it's now a must-have! Thanks all.

Re: Lone Wolf 16 & Darklands - Both in Stock!

Presumably the riddle has the missing bit of information so it works now? :) 189. Yes, in a way. Reworded that 2 Dwellers of the Abyss. Loyal Servants are same in number as months in a Magnamund year less number of Dwellers in the Abyss. So rest of riddle isn't necessary but helps to confuse I supp...

Re: that big sword...

Funny how it all came down to the 2 fights (Chaos Master/Kimah) for the basis of picking skills. There was the +4CS Alether in Kalte too, if you miss out book 7 or put it in Safe Keeping before losing your Backpack in that book!

I'm tinkering ideas at the moment. Re-read Flight from the Dark a couple of times recently. That final fight is hard. Recently looked at the Project Aon Fire on the Water which lets you take an alternative path and not be penalised for not having the Magic Spear. Interesting idea but I still prefer ...

I'm a big fan of re-rolls, August agreed to my suggestion that in the books the Crystal Star Pendant (as a Talisman of Good Fortune) gives one re-roll per session. Of course if you re-roll you must accept the new roll, even if it is worse. This helps with many of the instant death random numbers in ...

Twin Blades does indeed give you two attacks, can be used 3 times per adventure. You could also give the Player Characters +1 or +2 to their Combat Skill when using it, if you don't want to add an extra attack. What a coincidence. After years(!) of fiddling I had come up with this: Dual Wielding (2...

Great ideas but I worry about Ambidextrous and attacking twice - that is a massive, massive advantage. No-one in their right mind would buy a shield ever and certainly no-one would want to buy a two-handed weapon; indeed for only a few Crowns you could have 2 Daggers. If you literally take the Weapo...

Well if you take the view you can use the +5CS bonus from the Jewelled Mace vs "Creatures Created from Magical Objects", as in Haakon's Blue Diamond in Bk 5, I don't see why this bonus couldn't be used in Bk17 against all the Undead. Ixiataaga is released/re-'born' by the Deathstaff so all the Undea...

I also agree that the Crystal Star should allow a single rechoosing of a Random Number once an adventure. That's a nice benefit that does not really overshadow players that might not have the item. -August ...And of course the new number must be followed, even if it is a worse result making it an a...

Failing that maybe in books 16+ at some point the pendant could become "enhanced' and gain that ability (same with the jeweled mace). Enhanced Jewelled Mace? Are you talking about it's use in the Tomb of the Mahjan Bk 5 or something else? My house rules - a Jewelled Weapon gives it's bonus against ...

Crystal Star Pendant in my house rules can also now hold a single spell BUT it is triggered - the wearer has no control over when it is cast- it merely happens the first time the conditions are met/does not cost anything. E.g. 'Sense Evil' Bk 1 when near a hidden threat/Helghast, Vigour +3CS in your...
