Re: What skill level is considered master craftsman level?

2) Several of the skills suggest that doing a "masterwork" version of the skill is a -5 modifier, which is pretty serious. Have the players roll their downtime actions at -5 if they want to try for master-level work. That is a good gauge. But I should mention that in some case when it com...

Re: PDF Error Collection Thread

In the new "Tales of Dragons and Thieves" PDF I just got on page 86 there seem to be some formatting artefacts in the special abilities Ishlunar: "Powerful Blows AAL XXX (Bite, Paw, Tail), Shield- Splitter (Bite, Paw, Tail), Tail Sweep (Tail), Stomp ABE (Stomp), Trample (Trample)"...

Re: Elven Tradition spell - Hawk Eye

There should be a spell that works as an actual buff to ranged combat that fits in the Elven tradition. It should provide a bonus to ranged attacks for several shots, not one. The more I go through the spells, the more I see that magic system in the game appears to be a bare bones approach. It's li...

Re: Guild Mage Seal

To me, since I have been playing since 1st edition, someone with only 7 spells is not a fully educated mage. 20-30 (though quite a few of them not necessarily at high levels) is what we had the last few editions and what makes sense to me. If anyone can’t bear to have a single AP less add the follo...

Re: Some Magic Errata, Perhaps?

On page 293, under the Horriphobus spell, the Tradition is said to be Guild Mage, but the charts on page 301 says that it falls under Witch. Which is correct? Guild Mage On the same page, 293, the Invocatio Minima spell, is listed as being both Guild Mage and Witch by Tradition. Is this correct? Ye...

Re: Some Magic Errata, Perhaps?

In this case, I really feel that the overcomplication stems from the way the text is written. It's confusing, at least to me. When in doubt of the rules always look into the text that explains things before the example entries. Most important advice for reading the whole book... :lol: Here it is th...

Re: TDE Core Rules Errata, Anyone?

While I might be tempted to to use the PDF, depending on how graphic it is (and thus affects the loading time), I prefer paper books myself to PDFs for my vision's sake. That said, TDE is a very heavy book...so even so, I prefer the rulebook to the PDF. I think they did the digest size version of t...
