Re: Sling ammunition

Okay, I guess I'll run it as a seperate resource die, no cost for a simple pouch (or a couple of coppers at most), and can fill it for free any time they're in an area that might have suitable stones. What I meant by filling it for free was refilling the arrows resource die takes buying or crafting ...

Re: Sling ammunition

Okay, what happens if they also pick up a bow?  What if they used their arrows resource, then want to refill for free, then want to use their bow?  Seems like it needs to be a different resource of its own kind if you're going to allow free refilling and/or they have both weapons.

Re: Group stealthing

That's not how hunting is written, it says that only one person can make the roll, this designated person is the hunter. That doesn't mean that helpers can't help. the whole point of helping is that someone takes the risk/reward of the skill roll and that it progresses the game faster by only havin...

Re: Kin names

Thanks, that's very useful.

Dwarven names strike me as vaguely Norse, or at least RPG pseudo-Norse.

Halfling names are throwing me, I'm not sure the root.

Sling ammunition

How do you handle sling ammunition?  I may be overlooking an explicit rule, but I didn't see it (for example) being listed as using the Arrows resource.  This matters for action economy, weight, and cost.  The latter is especially relevant for new characters, because if they don't start with one the...

Kin names

Can anyone who give some insight into the basis for the Example Kin names provided?  I'd like to extrapolate from them, but I'm not sure what the pattern behind them is.

Re: Group stealthing

Hmm, I though the help rules specified you could not be doing the activity yourself, but that appears to be a rule they dropped from Mutant Zero, and is instead specified under specific activities (e.g. hunting).

Re: Clarification for Path of the Warcry (Minstrel)

 They can get two rounds of use out of the talent Rank 1 every time, and even form Rank 2 if their initiative spread brackets the enemy's. Having a minstrel in the group is a great way to buff. They become a needed party member and it seems appropriate. Appropriate ... or clear and obvious exploit?...

Re: Group stealthing

Not only  is it lowest, but the other characters can't help either. Since they're also busy sneaking.

This is a very standard rules for how group attempts at sneak/stealth work in TRPGs. Because it makes perfect sense for the in-game activity.
