Re: TDE5 Heroes (Beta)

Our local group played TDE last night and we discussed your generator and how we go about building characters. Everyone had a different approach, but we generally agreed that we built our characters with an idea of what we wanted to build. That means we more often than not looked at the Professions ...

Re: TDE5 Heroes (Beta)

So, let's go on the premise that I don't choose Attributes yet, but block off x points to spend on them. I know have an amount of point left to buy skills, combat abilities, and spells if I use them. I also have Advantages/Disadvantages left. My Profession, Race, and Culture selections have already ...

Re: TDE5 Heroes (Beta)

Now I can address Race and Culture. I now have a character taking shape in my imagination. I identified the aspect of the Holy Trinity it will focus upon, and then chose the flavor and Profession. I probably already had an idea about the Race and Culture in my mind, but now I can nail it down. I fin...

Re: TDE5 Heroes (Beta)

Have you ever seen the character generator called PC Generator? http://pcgen.org/ I use it for building my PF characters. You can choose the rulebooks you use in it as well. I find it somewhat irritating that we have 2 versions of TDE. There's the German version which has more rules than the English...

Re: TDE5 Heroes (Beta)

I've been looking over how characters are built in TDE for a bit now. The CR (Core Rules) have a good way of explaining things, but it is still pretty intimidating for people who are not used to using a point buy system for every aspect of character building. I grew up playing AD&D 1st edition a...

Re: TDE5 Heroes (Beta)

Great! Looking forward to the next patch. I really enjoy this generator. I think it's pretty important to help new players figure out the character creation process better.

Re: TDE5 Heroes (Beta)

Elytherion, The newest update is not working properly. Whenever I or another person who downloaded it last night tries to use 0.51.6 it gives an error and we have to close the program. I put in a name, click male or female, and then choose an experience level. I hit the next button to advance to the...

Re: Spell scrolls for use in combat

Thanks for the response. I don't have access to the other versions or either of the additional Aventuria Magic books, so I wanted to know if there was anything in them on this. I am not surprised that the Guild mages have a way to put a spell into their staves. It is such a focal point of their magi...

Spell scrolls for use in combat

Are there any ways to make spell scrolls for use in combat or at any time other than using up permanent AE? Page 275 of the rulebook states that Guild Mage spells can be written down in spell books and scrolls. I know they can learn spells from scrolls, but can the scrolls be used for casting a spel...

Re: Two-Weapon Fighting and Quickdraw

Thanks for the reply. It has crossed our minds about only needing one Quickdraw to draw both weapons if one has Two-Weapon Fighting. If one can fight with two weapons, it would stand to reason one practiced drawing both in one action. That is the way we are leaning.
