Re: Playing as a Borbaradian or a Blessed One of the Nameless

I am convinced that the neoborbaradians do not get powers for free and that there is a price to pay, be it a pact hidden even deeper or some other way. I kind of hope that there isen't. Being able to do magic is a privilege that a small number of people get to enjoy by luck of birth. The Borbaradia...

Re: Viable professions for Elven PC's

Another enlightening point and contrast to the druids I'm used to. D&D druids are caretakers and guardians of nature, their secrets originated from the fey and spirits of nature rather than being created by dwarves and humans. Also it bears mentioning that all the elemental stuff came in later ...

Re: Same-sex romance in Aventuria

It's generally accepted. The church of Travia doesn't really promote same sex marriage (because you can't get a child of your own), but contrary to popular believe they don't condemnd it. Their reason is basically "better to marry your (same sex partner) and adopt a child than to not marry at ...

Re: Issues with Compendium + Questions

The Armory 2 will give focus info on Ranged weapons in melee, it is out today in germany, so we will be very clear about this special situation soon. I will go and buy it just to clear that up for you :P Admirable dedication to our English speaking fellow gamers. Sacrificing all that money for a bo...

Re: Mage Guild questions

In addition, I am from the United States. So, I am trying to capture the feel and intent of the rules and setting with only having the existing English content. You should be aware that TDE here in Germany occupies the same place as D&D does pretty much in the rest of the world. And it easily h...

Re: Mage Guild questions

Then you have not played with that many people. I know quite a few that cite the “fantastic realism” of previous editions as their main attraction to TDE. I was forced to endure enough TDE 4/Myrannor to know that while that may true for the setting (The true strength of the game) but not for the ru...

Re: Mage Guild questions

When does learning time really matter that much? It doesn't for most people. Simple as that. I am really glad that they got rid of learning times or costs in the Basic rule book. They will sooner or later add them in back as focus rules for those that enjoy tracking that stuff but focus rules is ex...

Re: Permanent injuries

I dislike them. I agree with you here. Mostly because of the same reasons. And as others already mentioned it further feeds into a certain play style of fast recycling of characters that the XP system already encourages. One thought is just to ignore them, or make them just last until the end of th...
