Dynamic Map Question

One of these turned up, and it's really a cool idea but also causing some confusion. "The dynamic map can be set to a specific goal and will map out a path to get there. If the journey will be eventful, a few landmarks will be featured, usually related to plot points." It's a full Arcane i...

How Surprise Works

So... Here is a situation in which I'm trying to understand whether a party is surprised, and how the surprised rules work. Party comes to an end of a tunnel, sees a clear threat in a room (which they suspect is trapped). Let's say it's something like a statue that they are quite certain will animat...

Re: Aysle Sourcebook Q&A Thread

It appears that there is a subtable for special armors (circlet, vestments, etc.), but there is no way to actually get to that subtable.

I take it the resemblance to D&D 2nd edition is nor mere accident btw. :)

Re: Broken Combo?

This combo just isn't a problem. First, it's harder than it sounds. Second, it only affects one enemy (not groups), and any enemy worth spending resources to get that kind of roll is going to be possibility rated and has a good chance of soaking. Third, If you're going to get that kind of roll, ther...

Re: Aysle Preview #10 - When Cosms Collide

Yeah, we'll definitely go back to Fires of Ra.

I like the term "palate cleanser"

Nothing like a trek through the Malaysian jungle with corrupted horrors at your heels to make you yearn for ranks of shock troopers. ;)

Re: Aysle Preview #10 - When Cosms Collide

Looking forward to this mega-adventure a lot - it's what I loved about OTorg, before it jumped the shark. We ended up stopping Fires of Ra 1/3rd way in... maybe pick it up later if group has interest. An adventure consisting of 7 (long) acts in one cosm is like eating cheesecake for dinner every day...

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

Curious to see what this looks like. My guess is that the Axiom 23 for major items is so that they can be called semi-sentient, to provide a story justification for the attunement rule. It's a pretty hefty story justification to exert a simple balance rule. All artifacts being fully sentient means t...

Re: Fires of Ra Discussion and Questions

Hopefully your GM will find the other acts more useable as-is. It's a done deal now, but rest assured that we're using different methods in other adventures. Sometimes we'll have plot scripts, other times we'll have open areas with a goal but no given plan. Oh, I'm sure he'll find other uses for cu...

Re: Fires of Ra Discussion and Questions

Great! Go for it! <points at Infiniverse Exchange> Be the change you want! I'd love to, but after 60+ hour work weeks on a startup, kids, chores, etc., I'm lucky to get my sacrosanct 3-4 hour gaming session in every other week. So it's, "please take my money!" instead. I'm sure there are ...
