Re: Warrior Academies of Gareth?

Note that technically, only academies that are recognised and grant the Warrior's Diploma are called warrior academies. The only warrior academy (that I know of) in Gareth is the Institute of the High School of Riding, which trains mounted warriors. Other schools that that teach fighters in Gareth a...

Re: Are all priests Blessed Ones and vice versa?

Are all "priests" (or other officials of a religious organization) Blessed Ones? The upper ranks of churches and their associated orders and organizations consist of blessed ones. Some churches also have acoluthes, people who are learned about the cult in question but are not blessed ones...

Re: Comments on TDE Release Schedule

Kevin, who is the English line editor, is a military man himself, so I'm sure he has reasons for any specific phrasing he is choosing. I believe the title is settled, but I'm not sure. I can check with him on his reasoning. @Eric Thanks. As I wrote above, the problem isn't that Eric mistranslated t...

Re: Comments on TDE Release Schedule

Wha do you think the title is wrong? The german title is "Der grüne Zug". Now, in modern german "Zug" can indeed be translated as platoon (i.e. a military unit of 40 men). However, the adventure uses Zug as a short version of "Heerzug", meaning host or army. The title ...

Re: Comments on TDE Release Schedule

You want weekly "there is no news" reports? Well I think bimonthly or even monthly updates would do for now, just to get a lifesign from time to time. On another Note, the announcement for both TK3 and the next Kicksarter (including TK4) just went up, but it seems the translators mistrans...

Re: Modifiers - apply before or after halving/reducing a stat

Well the one instance I've found so far is is the description of critical hits for melee and ranged attacks in the rulebook. In the example texts for each of those, damage is determined by first adding the constant to the damage roll, then doubling it.

Re: Modifiers - apply before or after halving/reducing a stat

I don't recall the exact place where it's discussed, but I seem to remember that you first apply additive modificators, that is +/- X, and then multiplicators. So in your example, the defender would first apply the penalty from his pain levels (as well as any penalties for defenses after the first),...

Re: Blessed Ones of multiple Gods

It is impossible to be blessed by more than one god. As for the temples of Firun: Most of them are tended to by priestesses of Ifirn, since blessed ones of Firun usually wander the land, with the exception of some who have grown too old to wander. The cults of Firun and Ifirn are very close (Ifirn b...

Re: Alchemical Laboratory

This reference is actually what makes the issue less than clear to me. "Learning a Tradition" makes it clear someone CAN learn a tradition later in life, it's just very difficult (that's a LOT of AP to save up ), but the Spellcaster ability HAS to be taken immediately. This at least impli...
