Re: Equipment: The Thread

Sweet! Anyone know if there are Special Abilities for specific academies within the Mage color spectrum (White, Grey, Black)?

I want a Gareth Academy special ability that lets my PC dual wield and cast certain spells in the same round also! :D

Re: Equipment: The Thread

You have to learn Them and a white academy wont teach a black mage and often vice versa( the black guild might teach a white mage for a big fee or quest.but the...

Re: Equipment: The Thread

Re-posting this in the hopes someone can answer regarding mage staves. However, why is it that the 2H Mage Staff while being more expensive than a regular Quarterstaff has weaker stats? A Mage's Staff also has the restriction it can only be acquired by Guild Mages. Is this because only Mage Staves c...

Re: Equipment: The Thread

But why are the White Mages the only ones to wield a Sword along with a Staff? Is there anything preventing me from doing the same with a Grey Mage if I play one? I know I can play a Guildless Mage who was trained by a private teacher (like the example character near the beginning of the Book) but b...

Equipment: The Thread

Ok some equipment questions now as I continue my read through of this wonderful book :D -Mage's Staff: There are 3 types of Mage staves given in the equipment chapter. Small, Medium and Large.

Re: Spells: The Thread

But still, as it is Fulminictus is still stronger. It takes 1 action to cast for instance, instead of Ignifaxus's 2. Powering Ignifaxus up was a staple of all prior editions, at least in the games. (This time around spells (and skills) have a Quality Level (QL) which can increase damage if you are o...

Spells: The Thread

So instead of making multiple threads regarding the same general topic I will try to compile all questions regarding Spells (Mage/Elf/Witch etc) in this thread. Let's start with the first two that have been bugging me: -Ignifaxus: Can you not power the Lance of Fire up any more like in prior edition...

Re: The Warriors Diploma

Ok, but what really differenties an Academy graduated Warrior from say, a Mercenary? Let us look what the developers have implied in the two statblocks below for each profession which I copy pasted from the rules (hope that's ok Ulisses, if not let me know I will edit them out. :oops: ) Mercenary Pr...

The Warriors Diploma

So, what exactly are the benefits of the Warriors Diploma? There are a few snippets given, but nothing in more detail. (I remember having this question since the old The Dark Eye Basic rules were released in English by Fanpro :D ) The Warrior Profession starts out with it, but since the professions ...

When was it released in German, anyone know? Does this book have new abilities for existing traditions li...
