Re: Lightning Hand management?

SnowShadow makes some excellent points here. Also, Willpower recovery can be a real issue, especially if an adventure takes place over a relatively short amount of time. A player who burns through their Willpower on early encounters is going to be (rightly) at a severe disadvantage in the later stag...

Re: Lone Wolf 17... Is In!

I also haven't received my copy. How long now has it been since it was announced that it had been printed and that shipping was commencing? I have been patient and contacted Mongoose customer service politely only twice and was put off and told to wait. It is quite clear that there is a problem. I ...

Re: how do you run Kloon Sages?

Thanks for the replies. I was going to play it that Kloon Sages can "mimic" other's disciplines, but the Sage actually taps into his own power to successfully perform the discipline. So it's nice to hear other's feedback on the subject. No worries, Zhen. You can consider this reply official if you ...

Re: how do you run Kloon Sages?

It has been theorized that the dwarves do have magi but they have not been seen by other cultures in so long as to offer no proof of their existence. If there _are_ dwarven mages, they do not work magic as the Brotherhood or other spellcasters do. Indeed, their powers might work more along the lines...

Re: how do you run Kloon Sages?

One of the things that makes a Kloon Sage so potent is that they have the ability to duplicate other forms of magic without having to bow to those style's limitations. They essentially find ways to simulate other paths through their own gifts. Thus the Kloon Sage in your example never needs to take ...

Thank you for mentioning this, Myrm! It's a great program and deserves a lot more press than it gets.

Re: My house rules

I must agree with Random again, good sir. Excellent work on these, both the Lone Wolf and the Dragon Age rule supplements. I like the thought process behind these and while I might not use them, I could certainly recommend them to people looking to get a little more from their gaming. Good job! -Aug...

Re: Telepathic Shields / Psionic Shields

The catch here is that very little can actually cause a psychic to lose their active Shield power. In essence, the answers to your questions are as such: 1) If a psychic is reduced to 0 strength, Shield remains active and is not lost. 2) If a psychic for some reason takes Shield down while they have...

Do you reckon we could get a signed affidavit from Joe on this point? :lol: Its funny but given how many hours I spend dying in the lair of Ixia I would actually pay money for that. Maybe we could do a kickstarter campaign to reprint book 13 with an amended introduction ! :mrgreen: Heh, no. That's ...

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

After checking my notes with Mister Dever about these later books, it would appear that yes, this is the official interpretation. Joe's always been very precise and his use of the word 'can' there is meant to be interpreted as an option. If you dislike the practice, well... that's why it's an option...

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

There is a reason the word used is 'can'. It's an option, one specifically allowed so that players can recalculate their CS if they so choose.

With all due respect, RatedRWolf, you're probably going to want to post elsewhere. If this was Joe's handiwork, it was him trying to give us a hint in the only legal way he could given NDAs and contracts. Implying that he's not writing, especially in such a rude way, won't make you very popular on a...

Re: LW 16 Bonus Adventure: Sec 15

Just wanted to give you all the update as soon as I got it myself...

Mister Dever has given me the green light to complete work on the third chapter of Dire's tale. It will be the Bonus Adventure for Book 19!

Looks like folks will be getting the answers they've been seeking. :)
