Re: Corruption Rules

I just realized that in RoS, there is no upper limit to Corruption. You can keep adding to it waaaay past your threshold, you just keep rolling on the Corruption marks. RoS does not have this rule found in Symbaroum: "The character turns into an abomination if its Total Corruption (temporary+perman...

Re: no map from pdf

If you are printing from Acrobat, make sure the box "Choose paper source by PDF page size" is not checked. And then select your paper size manually using page setup. Then select "Fit" or "Custom Scale", depending on exactly what you're trying to accomplish.

Re: Head scratchers in the starter adventures

1) Lotho will be born in four years, so even if they're not married yet, it's probably on the horizon. It might also be a sort reflective jealousy 'if Bilbo hadn't have come back, then I'd be marrying Otho AND moving into Bag End'. . 2) They're playing a game that (somewhat) emulates the battle, sig...

Re: Alpha Feedback - Player's Guide Section 5 Resources

Spirit Walk has an unusual 5e requirement to end a spell. Normally in 5e a caster can just choose to end a spell at any moment without using a reaction.
SaintVidar, I'm trying to confirm this information and not finding it in the SRD. Can you shoot me a reference, even if it is non-SRD?

Thank You!

We've passed the official cut-off time for feedback on the Alpha versions of the Player's Guide and Gamemaster's Guide. We appreciate all of the feedback and will be carefully curating all of it, collating it with prior playtest feedback and using this opportunity to improve the ruleset and clarify ...

Re: Changeling - Pariah?

We will be discussing all feedback and carefully considering changes. As for immediate responses, I've been trying to confine myself to issues where the alpha draft is unclear, to avoid folks from walking too far down a road they don't need to. I haven't been perfect at that task, but in areas where...

Re: GMG Questions

1. Take a look at page 16. 2. References to the core rules refer to books published by the first party publisher (i.e. not us). Discussions of creating encounters using the core rules is beyond the scope of the OGL and SRD (i.e. what we can use). 3. Anything not specified as different is the same as...

Re: The d8 Hit Dice

It's the same thing, reversed. But instead there's a single origin with a d6 that is sticking out like a sore thumb while everyone else has a d8 (and two get to take the higher result of rolling twice), instead of having a greater variety of hit dice. . To be fair, there's another origin out there ...

Re: Alpha Feedback - Player's Guide Section 5 Resources

Page 193: Maybe I read it too briefly, but how is your Burning Hands different from the official spell? Page 194: Hellish Rebuke. Same as with Burning Hands, I cannot see what it is you have changed. . There are no spell slots in Ruins of Symbaroum so the language regarding upcasting the spell has ...

Re: Alpha Feedback - Player's Guide Section 4 Classes & Feats

If a text isn't necessary wrong, but I think it could be made more clear, should it be stated here or in a separate post?
Edits for clarity are fine, as is bringing something to our attention that we might want to rephrase.
