Is there other tactics the Trollkin can use?

Theoretically Conan has this issue, get around 11 points of armour, and Picts with there puny spears cant hurt you.

Howver, they can grapple you, drag you off away from your mates and then stick the boot in ;o)

No a bad looking list of stuff, theres cirtainly a few bits in there that would be useful that I don't have. TBH, im pretty much always ready to buy a proper dead tree version of stuff thats on PDF or even from mags, as its looks better on my book case, is harder to destroy and can be thrown with ea...

I much prefer systems split into several books, my group references quite a bit in game and theres nothing worse than there being a queue to read to the one book as everything is contained within it.

Nice start.

Personally iw ould like to see it being made slightly more Magnamundy, at the moment it's a bit generic for my tastes.

I'd love to start LW, but without a core rulebook and a couple of supplements, it would be hard. A paperback rulebook (like what they have for the Conan RPG) would be sweet to start with, just until I get the hang of it. I've been reading Mr. Dever's fine books, and I hope the RPG is faithful to hi...

Re: Resilience Skill?

Rather than your ability to resisit poison being based on how healty you are it's based on someone teaching you to resist it (being cold or being stung by a jellyfish) and how many times you have resisted poison before. :roll: :P :roll: Look!

Sure there is. Actually more than a single bcs spell. :wink: Grand word Shield grants complete protection against psychic combat (with the amount of dr provided by grand word shield the amount of damage done by psychic combat is worthless) Missed this, but yes, one level 5 spell.

Erm, at mid to high level the Dessi cuts the brother to bits with psychic combat that the brother can't do anything about with his no willpower and low hitpoints. Not a single BCS spell helps against that.
