Re: Average result on the bonus chart?

That's tricky because the answer is an infinite series - there's a highly unlikely but still possible outcome where you would never stop rolling. As near as I can tell the average roll is somewhere around 11-12 for a skilled roll, and 10-11 for an unskilled roll. So the average modifier would be +0 ...

Re: Aysle Preview #10 - When Cosms Collide

She's described as a Core Earther, but looks like a D&D tiefling in both dress and with the skin and horns, so I'm guessing she's used her chameleon ability on herself? I assume we'll also be getting more of the Relics of Power adventure. That's a lot of adventure! So it sounds like When Cosms C...

Re: Vital Shot Feasability

After thinking about this a little, I think there are two categories: creatures that are uniform in composition (statues, oozes, etc.) and creatures that are unliving but not uniform (clankers, zombies, etc.). The first category I think is almost certainly no vital blows unless there’s something bui...

Re: Aysle Preview #9 - Magic Items (Part 1)

All artifacts being fully sentient means that Aylish characters who acquire one (and let's say they do, because non-mage Ayslish characters have precious little to compensate for the lack of LAW rockets, grenade launchers, helicopters, nuclear weapons, satellites, computers, pulp powers, etc.) That...

Re: Relics of Power Redux w 2 Storm Knights

Remember also it's meant for "late Alpha clearance" characters. So maybe start them at Beta?

Re: Gear and Money

This all reminds me of d20 Modern's abstract wealth system. Which was ahead of its time, I suppose. But my group at the time hated the thing! They wanted to know exactly how big their bank accounts were (mind you, they didn't want to pay rent or track lifestyle expenses). I dunno what a good answer ...

Re: Short Bow in LL?

Probably meant to be a sinew bow, page 33 in the Living Land book.

Re: Question about contributing to Kickstarter

The actual buttons to donate to the Nile Kickstarter should be disabled. When the campaign is going, there’s a countdown near the top of the page, where it now says something about how so many people pledged so much to successfully fund the project. The Kickstarter for the Aysle book should be start...

Re: Aysle Preview #9 - Magic Items (Part 1)

I get that a basic enchanted item has a Magic Axiom of 13, but why are the next two levels (Arcane and Artifact) literally right next to each other on the axiom scale at 23 and 24 respectively? That seems like a considerable gap between 13 and 23 for just an additional +1 bonus, and yet the gap bet...

Re: Pathfinder Spell Specifics

IMO I would say the caster has to be able to know exactly who/what the target is first. No using the spell to find "that guy I who ran away from me last night." If I was going to allow it to be used to find the nearest example of a thing (which I'm not sure is allowed by the spell wording)...
