Elric Enchantment

According to the EoM Cults of the Young Kingdoms one of the Gifts for the Cult of Strashaa is Enchantment. I cannot find any mention of this in any of my Legend or EoM books. Should it be Enhancment or is it in an RQ2 book?

Re: Overextend

Ok, this combat manoeuvre still has me a little confused on its intent, even after many games of legend (i will also note that it is not used that much by those i play with, which is probably where the confusion is coming from). The manoeuvre states that the person on the receiving end of this cann...

I will add that the GM allows one free IP per game week of downtime to spend on any skill we choose, as long as we have the resources to study/practice it.

Re: Legend of Grimrock

This looks very much like an updated version of FTL's Dungeon Master from the 80's. If it is half as good it will be worth the money.

Re: Spending IP's

As I read it, this means that the character can only improve a skillhe has used recently, either during the last adventure or durring so-me practice in the off time after the adventure and before the nextadventure. I agree with this but there are some gamers who try to milk the system an would insi...

Spending IP's

Currently, my group are playing Deus Vult. At the end of every session we receive IP's, which we get to spend on skills we have used during the session. I have no problem with this methord, but I cannot find the rule in either the RQII or Legend CRB's. I know it is written in CoC, Stormbringer, RQ, ...

Bypass/Enhance Parry CM's

According to the Combat Manoeuvres Summary Table both Bypass and Enhance Parry are stackable CM's. But this requires two CM's, to get two CM's the attack or parry roll must be a critical and the opposed roll must be a failure. If the opposed roll fails there is no need to use the CM. So, what is the...

Re: Elric: Increasing Pact.

I may be wrong. But I think I have read a passage that states that if a sacrifice is made to your God you get to add half the creatures POW, if non-sentient, or total POW, if sentient, to the characters Pact skill.

Re: Creatures of Legend

Can someone tell me where the Stats for Beastmen can be found in Legend? They are mentioned in both the CRB and MoL, but I can find no details. Have I missed something or will they be in a future publication?

Re: Major and Minor Actions (house rule concept)

barring lucky rolls or huge differences in skill levels, whoever has the most Actions will almost certainly win. And it's pretty much a death sentence to be outnumbered. The Legend system is probably the most realistic combat system I have used. I started roleplaying in 1980 so I have used a few. H...
