Re: Blinding Flash spell

I like the fluff of the academies, and why choose an academy that is known for healing and telepathy if you want to summon demons and throw fireballs? There is always the option to create a private teacher of your liking, no reason to create a grey faceless mess out of the guilds. There is no reaso...

Re: Funny thing.

That is a bloody good way to do the rules. Rules bloat and book flipping will drive me out. Thanks TDE 5 does a really thorough job here. Rules bloat was a serious problem in the previous edition. In this edition they took extra care to clearly label anything that is optional. You still can have a ...

Re: Blinding Flash spell

Snipped a good overview of a Focus I rule Just because it should mentioned: All that Bosper wrote here is something called a Focus I rule. That means it is totally optional. You only use them when you group decides that they want to use them. By default Guild Mages in TDE 5 have no restrictions on ...

Re: Living Land Preview #6 - Perks

Agreed, though the beta clearance requirement seems to frustrate someone trying to game the system by grabbing it early and boosting, say, a 12 to a 13 for a handful of XP. My guess is that new perks for beta clearance characters will be a bit pricey since they will probably have a handful already ...

Re: Living Land Preview #6 - Perks

Cool beans. Does Savage Strength allow you to exceed racial limits? No. It also seems to be a increase and not a bonus. That means it is just a perk that messes around with the normal way of increasing attributes with XP and its usefulness as perk is dependant on what point you take the perk during...

Re: Scholar Profession, Lack Thereof (and Presented)

Well without the special abilities for noncombat in the compendium a scholar is any character with higher skillpoints in lore. I personally would prefer to build that freely, though. Well yes. Personally I like to make characters with high combat and high lore skills. The dumb fighter stereotype th...

Re: Scholar Profession, Lack Thereof (and Presented)

(I am curious about some of the differences between the official Scholar and the one I created. But I won't make you go through a comparison of the two.) :) If you want to see the differences try to go to the german rule wiki and the search for "Gelehrte" Then just google translate it (ve...

Re: The Armory Book

The armory is kind of a luxury rule book. Nice to have it but not necessary. It is mostly a larger version of the Armory of the Warring Kingdoms with some extra focus rules on top of it. If you liked that book or books like the Shadowrun 2E Street Samurai Catalogue then buy it. But it is no book tha...

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)"...
