Re: Town generator

I like it a lot and will likely use it for generation/inspiration on the fly! I especially like the focus on relationships.

Re: Party full of Lore and Camping?

Then that makes Lore a skill that only one player ever needs and completely invalidates the other PCs having it. We generated the party with the random adventurers booklet so one of the pcs has a Wits of 5 and a Lore of 3 and two other characters have lore as well. They might as well not have it in...

Re: Sense magic on Scrying

I'd personally rule that Sense Magic is not (generally) going to be useful here for detecting Farsight if the Sense Magic user is in the location being viewed, regardless of the range. Farsight's "visions are often fragmented and cryptic" as interpreted by the GM, so it's not necessarily that powerf...

Re: Pelagia

The party was offered the choice between deed to a castle and lordship over a nearby village (which would require them cleaning out the castle and repairing it though they didn't know this) or 40 gold. They opted for the quick pay out and have been living fairly well off their their coin for awhile...

Re: Boring long travels between locations

It was about 15 hexes, which took about 4,5 days (circa 18 quarters). So it was about 18 rolls for Keep Watch and 4 rolls for making encampment (and 32 in total rolls for food and water for all 4 players, but this is just a sidenote because these rolls would happen anyhow due to time passing). Rela...

Re: [Combat cards] Maneuver card and retreat/run action

A question I cannot resolve myself. Player's Manual, p95, says you can choose to Feint or Retreat when you pick the Maneuver card. But in the Maneuver card, it says you can Fein or Run . Which one is the correct rule? Retreat or Run? Run & Retreat are distinct actions. I treat Maneuver as Feint, Re...

Re: Pelagia

I'm more or less following the suggested adventure seed, which is the dwarves offer the party a 'hefty sum'. Some have suggested they might offer even a castle for it (though one the players may have to reclaim from its current inhabitants) and a deed to the land/trade. Which is an interesting step...

Re: Who knows that Zygofer is "spoiler"?

Doesn't anyone who makes a Lore roll related to Zygofer know? I mean the legend spells it out- "They say that the sorcerer Zygofer, during the final battle of the Fourth Alder War, summoned a demonic horde that slaughtered King Algarod and the Alderlander army. To consolidate the alliance, Zygofer ...

Re: Amber Peak-Marigall

Merigall has frequently appeared in both games I've had running in parallel, mainly in the form of Dalb (see Weatherstone, GMG p.217 & p.225). Still, I'd say much of the same behavior I've put forth applies to the genderless form encountered at Amber's Peak. If in this particular form Merigall chose...
