I always felt that the Crystal Star Pendant ("Protection on the Road Ahead/Talisman of Good Fortune") should allow the wearer one re-roll per adventure, after all it is relatively useless apart from that.

So is it the 'wrong' map/mistakenly printed from Bk12?

Should it have Helgedad in ruins and Reclaimed Wasteland like earlier editions?

Just wondering.

Looks like you are needed again, sigh, a Writer's work is never done...

Shamath - I'm guessing the secondary weapon does not allow the enemy to strike back otherwise they also get two attacks!

Hey thanks for your detailed comparison SnowShadow! Assume the big dragon creature with 48 CS, 52 EP is still unchanged? ITs not an unreasonable fight but looking to see whether any other adjustments have been made Checked every section, didn't notice any CS/EP changes. Yes '281' Ice Dragon CS48 EP...

That it is! I really hope you enjoy it. That's the first of a series of bonus adventures, the second part to come in LW16. Have fun! -A Does that mean we'll be carrying equipment over...? {Excellent adventure, and I haven't even read it yet! There was me expecting Nyxator but I'm not disappointed.}...

RIP

His works were a major factor in why the series was so popular.

Well I always thought that the extra New Order disciplines where horrible (except for Kai-Alchemy and Magi-Magic). And in the later books you more or less had four or five options to do the same thing. Curing gives you the ability to know all about herbs but you 'forget' this when becoming a New Or...

What's to excuse? Your English is fine! {Spoilers} There's been a few discussions on this. You are right. Book 8 is where it first states about leaving Items in Safe Keeping but it is also the first book that states a limit of 12 Special Items - in theory you have no limits Books 1-7, if you did I'm...

Willpower Rule of Thumb - quick calculation for all types

Just in case a GM needs a WP figure for a monster or character here's a quick system... Primarily Magic using/Psychic Foes: Initial Willpower = Initial ENDURANCE Points. (Making new Spellcaster/Psychic Classes: WP = 20+Random Number.) Others/Most Monsters: Initial Willpower = HALF Initial ENDURANCE ...

Well concerning Kai Lords and Willpower... Kai Lords have amazing healing skills. Don't really see the -2 Endurance from Psi-Surge as a major hindrance. Ah. There's been a lot of talk on the boards about limiting that to 10 per Gamebook - otherwise people don't bother with Hunting, for example, as ...

Not necessarily wrong, just you can only have 10 of the 11. (Thought this post was about Lone Wolf Gamebook 22 first), the other classes in Heroes of Magnamund have just ten powers to choose from I agree. Perhaps the advanced bucaneer character, up to rank 20 in line with Magnakai, will let you have...

Er. That's what I did put. Maybe it wasn't clear. For multiplayer had RN+10 for Kai Lords and for the Gamebooks House Rules had 1WP per rank - that's if you want Kai Alchemy using Willpower but the idea of WP increases equal to EP at higher levels is nice and simple.

Fair enough, it would help with Psi-Surge costing -2EP per round for only +4CS, Mindblast is +2CS so it is only a difference of one column on the CR Table - unless a foe s immune. Yes using WP instead of EP for psionics would be good. In the books I was always reluctant to use Psi-Surge until Archma...

Generally 1EP=1WP, based on Grey Star, etc. I sort of prefer EP - after all what's a Kai's Willpower and when do they get it? 10-19 at Rank 10/Master I'd say. Anyway, here's my house rules for the Gamebooks. Basically Vakeros 'Battle' Magic is based on CS and Brotherhood Wizard Spells on EP - e.g. L...

Agreed. I doubt they'd think of doing it until the advanced/magnakai skills/ranks were sorted (rank 11-20?): In the books you play a New Order Grand Master with up to 16 abilties (Kai & Magical) beyond that which is when this period is set.

I still think necromancy will be a higher level ability like the Magnakai Skills. Yes I kow Grey Star learnt it as a lower magic but he does get personal tuition from the Shianti.
