There's another feat from the Shem book that can add to DtW, it is for Sabateans only though, it is called Aura of Authority, and gives a +2 bonus to will saves, then +3 and then +4 when you meet certain ranks in intimidate. There are certain drugs that grant a bonus to will saves, like the Hashish ...

Serpent Mark of Set

One of the magic items in Stygia: Serpent of the South, the description seems to be incomplete. It says the tatoo "...functions as the sorcery feat" but no feat is mentioned. What feat is it suposed to replicate?

Vincent, what about the feat Explosive Power? I remember you manifested in an older thread that the feat was broken, when I saw it in the new book, I thought I would see a new version of it, but it is the same as in the 1e ROK.

Re: Player’s Guide: a disappointed review of a wonderful boo

I received this book last Friday, I think this is an essential book... a good and essential book but some DECENT proofreading (and useful figures, i.e. weapons) should make this book perfect. I know early on, several fans worried that the book made the Hyboria's F series obsolete. I wrote it so tha...

I have designed a few Cthuluoid cults for my Hyborian campaign. I treat them like Mystery religions, and each new Mystery calls for a Corruption save - but in this case, instead of the Corruption manifesting itself primarily physically, it manifests as more as insanity from CoC. You wouldn't be wil...

Re: What are some inventive uses of spells?

you can use Burst Barrier for all sorts of nasty things. Try bursting the bows (or the bowstrings!) of those archers (even low leverl scholars should be able to break bows using that spell...); you can also destroy enemies' weapons, their armor, the saddle straps on cavalry, the wooden hafts on haf...

Regarding the Savant manner of spell acquisition, feats like Sorcerer's Boon and GSB become obsolete. Probably a good tweak to those feats for use with the Savant is to grant access to a new sorcery style. The sorcerer would need a source from where to learn the new style's basic spell, and advanced...

Thanks for the reference. It misses the new spells from 2e and maybe from Stigya, I think I saw a couple new spells there too.
