Re: Death Squirrel LP & pain

According to the bestiary death squirrels suffer 1 level of pain at 2 LP, that's it.
I suppose you could rule that they get another level at 1 LP, but how likely is it really that a creature with 3 LP and 0 PRO is going to survive getting hit by anything that does damage anyway?

Jousting rules

We're just getting into Arivor's doom, and one of the PCs is participating in the tournament's jousting discipline during the opening. Can you help us resolve some of the apparent contradictions in the different source books? I'm referring to these sources: ⋅ Arivor's Doom scenario, page 2...

Re: Currency Question

The almanac lists lump (ducat), penny (silverthaler), and slightling (haler). Same value as middenrealmian currency.

Re: Elves And Spellcasting

In my opinion, having advantages (or disadvantages) worth more than 80 points doesn't significantly change game balance. While I'm sure there are some imbalances, dis/advantages are meant to be balanced for their AP cost regardless of limit. In my view, the 80 AP limit is in the rules for another re...

Re: Elves And Spellcasting

The design philosopy that the 5e TDE rules seem to take is that given equal experience, all characters (even including NPCs) are on an equal footing. There are no hidden bonuses or package discounts. By design, it's a quintessentially symmetric role playing game. That's not in itself good or bad, bu...

Re: Afterlife

My understanding is that according to common people's beliefs, basically every human will go into Boron's halls. Those who were especially virtuous in the eyes of one of the gods will gain admission to that god's paradise. Other belief systems like e.g. the Orcish gods or the Rastullah faith have a ...

Re: How many ranks to be able to teach spells?

From what I recall, previous editions had a skill Teaching where you'd need a passable rank (like 7?) before you could teach anything, and higher ranks for higher skill levels. The teaching skill would also determine how long the learning would take - and that could be a matter of months when trying...

Re: Viable professions for Elven PC's

An elven druid is an interesting concept I think. For an elf growing up among elves I find it unlikely they would turn away from their own worldview and towards a druidic one. However, I could imagine this as a young elf child found in the wilderness by humans and handed over to local druids out of ...

Re: Character sheet query

In my group we have never used routine checks and most of us probably aren't even aware they exist. We simply leave that column blank. The requirement of 13 in each attribute plus the skill points make sense to me, but they also mean that it's quite rare we even run into such checks. If we do, it's ...

Re: Same-sex romance in Aventuria

I think that's a question to consider based on your group rather than on some official setting material. If you think that it could be a controversial topic for one or more people in your group, I imagine they won't respond well to someone pointing to the source material. On the other hand, if it is...
