Re: The Bitter Reach Beta has dropped

I'am totally agreed with you. New magic is very "dndish" and new Champion's talents seems to me very overpower. I was very supriesed to find a very common fire spell (fireball) in supplement about frozen lands. But i'am glad to have this book as I've bought for new history and lore - I will not use...

Re: Underpowered magic

The Bitter Reach beta has two new colleges: Elemental Magic and Ice Magic (for druids)

Elemental Magic has quite a few battle spells, such as FIREBALL which thankfully make Sorcerers much more useful now. Its going to be my go to Magic College from now on.

The Bitter Reach Beta has dropped

Who else is reading? I like the new Elemental magic tree but it has a few repeated/renamed spells (Heat of the Moment, Rock Storm) that appear the same as the spells in the core players book (Blood Magic tree and Stone Singer tree). Fireball is a spell, funnily enough despite so many here claiming '...

Re: Can Swarms be chosen for Path of the Beast?

"You have an animal as a trusted companion" I think the idea is that you have an animal that is your true companion, like a hunter's dog, not that you have a whole bunch of trusted companions. Perhaps a swarm with just strength one.  Yes that would make more sense but the wording of the Talent says...

Re: Path of the Beast II & Orcs

You could also enforce a hard limit on using each talent only once per encounter. So an Orc Hunter with PotB II would have two lifelines while any other Hunter or Orc would have just the one. If you add Berserker to the mix you get three lifelines, creating a really tenacious bastard =D Yeah but th...

Re: Elf Lore vs Elf Rules

Good point. Assuming that is not simple mythology and actually happened in the game world, perhaps there could be an Elven magical Path that has spells allowing that?

Can Swarms be chosen for Path of the Beast?

So Path of the Beast allows a Hunter to chose any non-riding animal from the GMG. The list on pg 126 contains swarms (bats and rats). Can the Hunter chose those? My only issue would be the following: -Swarms seem stronger than the other animal choices -From a roleplaying pov its hard to justify a no...

Re: Path of the Beast II & Orcs

Anyone have any other ideas? I think the PotBII is easier to change than changing the Orc Kin talent, as that would affect Orcs of any profession. Another change could be that if an Orc takes Path of the Beast II then and only then does the PotB II have a different effect for the orc in questions. H...

Elementalism Magic Path

So any ideas what kind of spells the Elementalism Path will contain? I had always been disappointed with the spells the Sorcerer (and the Druid) received. Yes I know this is not D&D or the like, but every other class gets Talents to give them a massive edge in fighting, including against monsters su...

Re: Small player count

You may want to give them a few extra xp when starting out, so they can each pick an essential survival related talent (quartermaster, pathfinder, master of the hunt etc) And maybe spend a few points in skills related to Move, Survival and Scouting if they haven't already
