Re: Modes of Movement

As of now, there is no direct movement difference between the three in terms of distance covered, however, some mounted combat maneuvers require your mount to be gallopping. The rules for movement are the same as for combat on foot: You can move up to you horse's speed as an action and again up to t...

Re: Player knocked about.

Agreed with Thrar. Healing potions are rather costly alchemical products, not something that is just handed out to heroes in batches (then there's the question how the flasks would have survived the destruction). It would help if you wrote how injured the heroes are. If they are lightly to medium in...

Re: Archetypes of the Blessed Ones

I can see where you're coming from. I think you're still too much in the D&D mindset, thinking of variants as subclasses of sorts. Every variant of a profession is its own profession, but they are written as variants as they share a lot of their profession package. As for mages, they will receiv...

Re: Funny thing.

The compendium kickstarter will go live this Friday. If I recall right, the reference is to some sort of hit location or vulnerable part of the stag beetle. The published adventures always assume you're playing using only the minimum of Core Rules + Almanac, without using any focus rules. So the ref...

Re: Archetypes of the Blessed Ones

I think you misunderstand the concept of archetypes. The archetypes mentioned in the preview are the sample characters found at the end of each rulebook (which are called archetypes in TDE). In fact the classical fantasy archetypes play no role for mundane TDE professions, which simply represent pro...

Re: Marie Curie TDE Equivalents

The name is familiar from somewhere, but I haven't finished reading the Almanac yet. Is she featured in any particular supplement? House Firdayon has been the ruling dynasty of the Horasian empire, ever since Amene III. Firdayon declared herself independent from the Middenrealm in 1010 BF and thus ...

Re: Spending AP

All the infos you're looking for are at the end of chpt. 13 in the rulebook (p.351 in the german book). To answer your questions: Yes, attributes can be increased (by default indefinitely, though you may optionally take the seconde next higher experience level as cap). The skill cap is the highest i...

That's good to know. Umm, what do you mean here when you talk of "profane characters"?


In TDE terminology, "profane" means neither related to magic nor to divinity. So when we say profane characters we mean all professions that use neither magic nor karma.

Re: Are there any guilds in Nostria?

I don't have the book at hand right now, but I'd say there are surely some guilds in the few big citites - specifically Nostria and Salza. As for the rest, the lack of guilds stems less from Nostria being backwater, and more from the fact that most settlements are rather small - often there are simp...

Re: Scholar Profession, Lack Thereof (and Presented)

There is a scholar profession in the Compendium, though yours already comes pretty close. One thing I would add are a few points in healing wounds and healing sickness (not sure how those are translated exactly in the engllish version). While not necessarily a learned healer, your scholar will have ...
