Re: When and how to increase reputation

I don't really get the reputation mechanic. Since the game is about travel and exploration, how exactly is word of their deed outracing them to the next settlement? I mean, sure, if they spent a month somewhere, it's reasonable, but you do something awesome somewhere, then travel 10 hexes and...some...

The Portal Spell

How do you run it? So I decided that traveling through Hell dimensions is more an act of will than physical travel. To navigate, the Sorcerer has to roll Lore and score a total of 5-10 successes to find their way through the dimensions to their desired destination. I found images online of hellscape...

Re: Beating Quetzel


Oh! And as a side note, the two demon birds in the beginning... I googled ”dry jokes” or ”puns” or some such so I had like 15 different, really dry, jokes to tell my players while they attacked. We’ll never forget that encounter... :D
Please share!

Re: New PCs, new players and Bitter Reach or Raven's Purge

Stat wise, I think Bitter Reach has more powerful NPCs, but I don't think that's it being 'harder'. It's more that, from a power curve perspective, Raven's Purge isn't well written. You have 'experts' and 100's of years old NPCs with no or just a couple of talents. Meanwhile, after 3 or 4 sessions, ...

Re: Beating Quetzel

Please tell me how it goes! How did they get the artifacts from Quetzel's fragments? My players have around 40-50 xp so they are fairly powerful, but I'm still looking at the fight against Quetzel...with one of them possessed and the magic items turning on them and just have a hard time imagining ho...

Beating Quetzel

So, just looking at the stats for things in Tower of Quetzel, it seems impossible for PCs to beat her...especially if one of them touches her gem. The players need the magic items in many cases to get to her, but this basically requires killing the NPCs (who won't be hostile or aggressive), which se...

Re: Good Example of Dark Secrets?

That sounds amazing! Does it often cause him trouble? I don't want to give xp out unless the revelation from the Dark Secret cause the character issues.

Good Example of Dark Secrets?

So I am having trouble getting my players to really come up with Dark Secrets or using them in game. Do people have good examples of Dark Secrets, especially ones that might come into use more often? One character had a DS that was exposed but coming up with a new one has been difficult. Two other p...

Re: Hand of Doom damage type?

Yeah, unless it SAYS a type of physical I would go with non typical.
Which does make it a super deadly spell. I mean, if you break your target, they are going to die in 1d6 days without help.

But fair enough. Path of Death...name checks out.
