Re: Picking a Location and a Legend

Yup, that would work. Do you intend they should meet the gryphon in the same session they set out on the adventure? If so I would make it only two to four hexes away as my players’s journeys are often interrupted by a random encounter than becomes the main focus for the session.

NPCs can push their rolls. And they can take banes (damage) from 1s on pushed rolls (not skill dice)

Re: How do you kill an Enemy?

Mr Oldtimer is right, and just to clarify, “You use MIGHT to lift, pull, push, or hold tight to something” (page 51) not to attack.

Re: How do you kill an Enemy?

And remember too that when a PC or enemy’s gets hurt, they roll fewer dice to attack, this speeds up combat considerably.

Re: How do you kill an Enemy?

Hold on. You break an enemy, that’s the end of the combat. They may be dead or incapacitated anyway, but even if their crit is a minor one, they are not getting up again until your players characters  have moved on.  And this is one of the quickest, deadliest combat systems I have every played.
