Re: Starting with No tradition

It wouldn't be canon to slowly train a spellcaster as the game progresses, but I don't think it will cause any problems either. I've done this before with a character who started out as essentially an emotional intuitive caster and slowly grew towards becoming a witch. This formed a significant part...

Re: How often do fate points return?

In my group each player gets 1 FtP at the start of every session, plus full FtP after completing a scenario or major milestone (typically every 3-4 sessions). For a while we had a character with Luck II; to make that expensive advantage stand out more we decided to give him an additional FtP every s...

Re: Thrusting weapons

In melee combat, a spear is basically used like a quarterstaff with a pointy bit on one end. There's a lot more to it than just poking the other guy, which is why it's rightfully grouped in the same weapon class as staves. Even weapons that are almost exclusively piercing, like the foil, require roo...

Effects of triple-1 skill checks

What do you do to make your triple-1 on a skill check truly memorable? After about a year of playing, we've had our first triple-1 in our group yesterday. Unfortunately, it was on an utterly mundane skill check: The character was rolling on Law to determine who would be in charge of an ongoing local...

Re: Running (sprinting)

If your dwarf has a MOV of 5 he can sprint at 10 (2x MOV). So far that's in the rules, as you mentioned. Where the situation calls for it I'd allow Body Control checks to increase the speed by 1 per QL for the round. For chases, consider using competitive checks instead. In this case, it doesn't act...

Re: The Dark Eye Universe Bundle on Steam

Also, Chains of Satinav on its own is on sale at the same 85% discount.

Blackguards isn't that great in my opinion, but I definitely recommend the bundle just for Chains of Satinav and Memoria, which are both excellent adventure games.

Re: Yummy Humas and pita bread

They are:
  • Fire <-> Water
  • Air <-> Ore
  • Soil/Humus <-> Ice

Compared to the classical elements, Ice is being added and earth is split in Ore (dead earth including sand, metal, stone etc) and Soil or Humus (living earth including plant life).

TDE digital flatrate

Now that about a year has passed since the original core rules Kickstarter, I'd just like to say that I'm very happy with the "all PDFs until end 2017" stretch goal from back then. I understand that there was a bit of a miscalculation on the pricing in our favor, but I feel that for me hav...

Re: Offer:TDE Online Session

I would be interested to join the online session and try out your adventure. However I'm based in Singapore (UTC+8) so we'll need to see if it works out time-wise.

Re: Selling Aventuria Almanac Leatherette Edition

Wow, that's greedy. You're getting it as a gift and try to sell it for higher than list price?
