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 ...

Re: So, the Shadowlands

Ok can anyone give me a primer on the Shadowlands, circa where they stand in 5e? Because from what I gather (and I could be wrong or confused) this is an area that contains demons, dark mages, necromancers, etc and it is smack in a substantial corner in Aventuria. Why is it there, what caused it an...

Re: Can a PC Mage use Salander to shapeshift?

As was said, toughness and the natural resistance to magic are just physical abilities of the body, like muscle strength. You must think of casting magic as trying to conduct electricity through a material: You have the electronic current (the flowing astral energy), the body through which it's supp...

Re: Can a PC Mage use Salander to shapeshift?

Question: Could a guild mage PC use the Salander spell to transform into, say, a bird to use the power of flight? If so does he retain full memories of his time spent as a bird or still retains dim memories only? Yes, he could do that, though he would still only retain a fracture of his mental abil...

Re: Sacred Weapon for Phex

Well you're basically right. First off, blessed ones of Phex don't have an associated weapon - which makes sense considering that none of his aspects deals with combat (tough the Tulamides may have a somewhat more martial view of him as Feqz). In the last edition there was a sacred throwing star tha...

Re: Guild Mage Seal

Also remember that a guild mage created at experienced level is really just an apprentice about 2-3 years from completing his studies. Add 2-300 AP and have at least 20 spells, that would give you the look and feel of a 4th edition mage. Yes, they were that much better due to their academic educati...

Re: Guild Mage Seal

I think that is looking at it from a D&D like point of view. A Guild magician gets a ton of status. They are often the only ones allowed to earn money from casting magics and certain places the only ones allowed to cast it. They are respected by the populus. They would command a much higher fee...

Re: Festum map

Your original assumption regarding the Born is correct. The Lion Castle lies a few miles to thenorth of Festum.
