Re: Concerns about the Player's Guide

I'm also worried about the state of the Player's Guide from a gameplay point of view, because in my opinion many of the class and subclasses are a little too simple and boring and also lacking customization (why all Outlaw to be optimized must be ranged? Why only some subclasses have Alchemy or Poi...

Re: Corruption Rules

After having the opportunity to actually play-test the game instead of just doing theory-crafting (like I did for most of my feedback so far) I am more at ease with how casters will work in RoS. I do however think there is a lot of texts concerning magic use that needs to be rephrased and clarified....

Re: Concerns about the Player's Guide

Agree with this too; The mix barbarian-fighter seems to be very strong! :s Yeah, sad to say it feels like the Player's Guide is rushed. The work is not bad, far from. It just feels like a lot of the mechanics and design choices haven't been given enough time to be properly evaluated. I also get the...

Re: An idea for the Troll Singer

You might also look at the College of Valor (Bard) as a template: They gain proficiency with medium armor, shields and martial weapons. They can boost their allies' rolls (Bardic Inspiration+Combat Inspiration), eventually get an extra attack and at level 14 can make a weapon attack as a bonus acti...

Re: Sorcerer and Self-Taught in the Alpha, a suggested change.

The problem with Sorcerers is that the rules give them ways to mitigate corruption gain but should instead incite them to take on more permanent corruption to gain more power. For example, The Power of Corruption, at 6th level, should be something like this: When casting a damaging spell, they add ...

Re: Cantrips... do we really need them?

I guess the topic is controversial, but I'm wondering why RoS kept cantrips from 5E. Magic in Symbaroum is dangerous and you're supposed to gamble with your soul each time you cast a spell. Would you gamble with your soul to light a torch, perform a basic attack (many many times per day) or perform...

Re: Concerns about the Player's Guide

The more I am rereading the classes in the Player's Guide the more concerned I am with balance. Like with the Berserker Approach: It is basically the Standard D&D Fighter class with the kit of the Barbarian class added as well. The standard Barbarian has only one extra attack (lvl 5), while the RoS ...

Re: Concerns about the Player's Guide

Same concerns here. I think that the new corruption idea is very nice and well designed. I'm very affraid by the long list of error i've found, difference between the fluff text and the technical part (self taught mage for eg) and also the mix between 5e srd/ogl and symbaroum part (the difference i...

Re: Concerns about the Player's Guide

Well I agree with you, I was disappointed by the Player's, while the work is better for the Gamemaster's. But the Gamemaster's content is for a big part generic , not system depending, and they could use what is mature from Symbaroum. As one of the other participant in the forum said, it might be t...

Concerns about the Player's Guide

So now the official deadline has past for feedback on the Player's Guide. While looking through the Gamemaster's Guide this book feels very polished already. However, when I looked through the Player's Guide it felt in parts like an unfinished product: There were quite a lot of spelling errors, and ...
