But here's a little secret...sometimes the design intent is, "It seemed like a good idea at the time." :-)


Yup, there's also that :)

Still, thanks for letting me noodle around.

Re: Breaking into Red Raven's camp

If the PCs fail step A (stealth test) they are Stymied in step D.

If the PCs kill the Skald in step A they are Very Stymied in step D.

If the PCs kill the agents in step B they are Stymied in step D.

Two questions - first, does killing the agents in step B intentionally have lighter consequences or was "Very" just omitted?

Second, assuming it was intentional, if both the Skald escapes and the Agents are killed does that "stack" into Very Stymied for step D?

It’s intentional, and yes.

Awesome! I am really digging all of the interlocking consequences in this adventure!

Two things I am a little unclear about in the encounter at the end of scene 4 For Malmo!

First:

"• If the undead have been cleared, Vivian and
15 roused town folk (use militia stats, but
Toughness 7) can take on two of the teams and
a First Axe."

The fight with the Gospog is listed before the bullet quoted above, so I assumed it happened first. Why might the undead not be cleared? Is this for if the PCs decide to skip the Gospog (since they appear to be leaving on their own however slowly) or is there some other reason the fight against the raiders might happen before the fight against the last of the Gospog?

The second thing involves this:

"When the town rallies, Red Raven concedes the
fight."

What constitutes the town rallying such that Red Raven flees?

Thanks,

Grae

From Helmar Corba'alson's stat block

"• Corba'al's Word: When striking with the
named sword, Helmar ignores the first two
Multi-Target penalties."

Does this mean he ignores two points of multi-target penalties (i.e. up to -2) or two target's worth of multi-target
penalties (i.e. up to -4)?

I would hope the second, the first is literally just the Whirlwind Perk. If it’s just -2, the text should just say he has the benefits of the Whirlwind Perk.

The latter...the wording should be changed. Don't worry about making a report, I'll edit this one directly.

On page 13 in the Reality Foci side bar it says

"While worn by an Ord, a focus allows an ally
from the same reality to reconnect him to the
Everlaw of One by succeeding at a reality test.
Foci provide no benefit to reality-rated beings."

It's not the Everlaw of One that the ord needs to reconnect to though is it? It is her home cosm? From the TE core book, the Everlaw of One is what strives to wipe out contradictions, it is what has caused the disconnection. Do I have that right? If so how should I phrase that in the submission form?

Thanks all! (and I'm trying Greg, thanks for the nod - still working through it as fast as I can with all of the everything else going on =D )

Grae


Yes, it should be the Everlaw of Two.

It sounds like there is more problem than that...Reality Foci provide no benefit to reality-rated beings, but how can an ally Ord succeed a test at reality skill, while they have none?
(Is there anything written about unskilled reality test?)
