Re: Heart of Darkness release

Yep still waiting for mine too. I did ping the support guys, but they said all the UK orders hadn't shipped yet, so not to worry.

Re: Just started and have an issue with a combination of Talents

Basically, yes, that's how it works. Feint is a Passive action grants you Advantage when you use Discreet with a Short/Precise weapon, and Backstab is a Reaction triggered when you attack with Advantage. Can your character take down a lone Rage Troll in a single action? Possibly, if you max out on a...

Re: Movement speed

Symbaroum handles that scenario abstractly (even the Pitched Battles rules in the GM's Guide doesn't differentiate between troop types - and actually says if you want more detail, make your own system up!! :lol: ) The horse's speed in melee just isn't considered a factor. The speed of the horse is a...

Re: Holy aura is OP?

I don't think its particularly bad - you have to maintain concentration, you have to pass your Resolute Test every turn and you have to roll the damage die: you're not guaranteed of maxing it, and even taking the middle ground its 3pts - 5pts as you increase its level, Undead and Abominations tend t...

Re: Movement speed

You hit the nail on the head, Symbaroum is a pretty abstract system, so you just don't need those kind of details in actual play. The Movement Action covers changing position to gain advantage or mitigate disadvantage without needing physical distances. I haven't had to work out how far a character ...

Re: Personal Safety - "otherwise end up in fatal danger"

"End up in fatal danger" would be anything that is about to put your character in a life threatening situation, so it doesn't have to be just immediate damage (but this will be most of the time) it just has to shortly lead there. Facehugger leaps at you from from an opening egg? Manipulati...

Re: Alien: Colony War

I only knew where Beta Canum Venaticorum was supposed to be because we used to play Traveller:2300 :D New Albion is in the Weyland Isles Sector but its not on the rpg map, a lot of that area is empty space, so I guess they left room for expansion. Also the map is from 2183, and I think Colony War is...

Re: Alien: Colony War

Yeah, I have it on pre-order - the current comics run has been decent and she got an honourable mention in Aftermath, so I thought I'd give it a shot.

Inferno's Fall just turned up too, EVAC looks a bit shorter in page count than FALLOUT, but its nice to have these at the end of the novels.

Re: Alien: Colony War

Mine would have turned up today, but the Amazon driver failed his ComTech roll and couldn't work the intercom, so I guess it'll be tomorrow. They've definitely shipped it in the UK though.
