Re: No-handed weapons?

Of course the famous Bohemian Earspoon, so named because - I'm certain - you wield it using your ear, which was a very socially unconventional way to hold a large polearm at the time. Hence, "Bohemian," which is clearly the part of the name that causes confusion.

Re: Active Defense FAQ entry clarification question

Wait, so I'm wrong again? On both points??

Give me a moment while I try to find my "surprised" face. I'm sure it's around here somewhere. :lol:

Re: Active Defense FAQ entry clarification question

Stacking If a character is affected by more than one enhancement or reduction that changes a skill or attribute—technology, miracles, etc.—the effects don’t stack. The target gets the strongest of the effects... So the answer is no – either shield or the deflection grants the bonus. There is theref...

Re: Aysle Sourcebook Q&A Thread

Graethynne, I do think they took that into account in balancing them. Like, the Fire Rune, or Demons Breath potion, create what is effectively a Fireball, but do 16 points of damage, where the spell does a paltry 14. An Elixir of Enhancement gives an automatic Good Success relative to the more easil...

Re: Active Defense FAQ entry clarification question

Deflect is weird, but it is also - and I say this as the one who brought it up - a distraction. I do agree with Atama that it wouldn't make sense to change the rules based on one odd Perk. On the other hand, I think it's fair to assume that the Perk was written with the rules-as-intended in mind. I ...

Re: Aysle Sourcebook Q&A Thread

OK, I had to go look, but I think I get it. You're not complaining about the part where it says they can only have three runes in existence at once -- it's the part that says Runemakers carry "one blank stone for each rune he knows." Those blank stones are arguably just rocks, so it's hard...

Re: Active Defense FAQ entry clarification question

That's a really solid case and I'm certainly not saying you're wrong, but as a GM, yes, I would say they Disconnect the first time. The shield *is* in play because their Active Defense is, exactly as you say, modifying All The Defenses, including their Dodge and Melee, which means they are using the...

Re: Active Defense FAQ entry clarification question

And that reading has the advantage of being exactly what the rules say. With an Active Defense, you just roll a bonus and add it to your defenses. Full stop. I don't know about Mishaps. Instinctively I just always see a 1 and think, "Whoops! Mishap!" And that includes on an Active Defense,...

Re: Aysle Sourcebook Q&A Thread

Two quick follow-up questions about the Kindred Magic Perk... Companions of the character with the perk Followers of the character with the perk, and Creatures summoned by spells cast by the character with the perk? Followers makes total sense. What do you mean by "Companions"? Is that lik...
