Exceeding 18

I have not read this anywhere, but as far as I know, there is no rule against exceeding 18 when applying boons or burdens (before or after origin modifiers).

Correct?

Re: Sorcerer and Self-Taught in the Alpha, a suggested change.

Nice idea... and if there is no changes in the official rules, i would gladly apply this rule (i'm open minded to other solution). And i know it's not the core matter of this topic but don't you think that troll singing have also a problem in their construction? I;ll have to re-read it and get back...

Re: Changeling - Pariah?

I agree 100% I don't mind them not having it. More of a curiosity as to the design choice.

But, like Uggelfar said, I'm very appreciative of you guys bringing Symbaroum to 5e. Very excited and more than happy to support the project. Wonderful setting and outstanding material.

Re: Burdens

I like the idea of boons and burdens,, but I'm not a fan of the execution. Im simply removing the "generous bonus" the burdens grant and allowing the players to take a boon at first level and in return they get a burden (and the burden is random, but that is up to you and your group). How many boons...

Re: Sorcerer and Self-Taught in the Alpha, a suggested change.

I think that's an interesting idea and a very workable and scalable solution.

My only hesitancy is simply that I've not seen all this in play yet so I'm not sure how the balance is currently. I can only assume it's been play>tested.

But on to the surface it makes sense.

Re: Changeling - Pariah?

Hello Again All..just checking in. No replies on this? I figured others may have the same question. How is it Changelings do not have Pariah?

Favored Spells

Apologies if this has already been answered but can mystics change their favored spells? If so, how and how often?

Thanks!

Re: Corruption for Mystics

Interesting observations on the spell casting. I would love for Jacob or one of the designers to take a moment to comment on these (and if they have elsewhere, perhaps insert a link to the answers). A live call in event would also be cool. Something you can reference on Youtube later. I think, botto...

Re: Alph GMG: Facing Monsters

Page 18: a few steps laid out to explain how to balance CR to the PC party. I've not seen it explained this way before (and it's been a long, long time since I looked at a DMG) and I think it's brilliant in its accessible language. Thank you! This right here...what he said....simple, elegant, brill...

Re: Background Clarification

RoS backgrounds are dependant on the character’s origin (iirc). If thats the case, i would argue only the backgrounds listed for each origin are eligible for use with that specific origin. Oh, I agree 100%. Maybe I need to re-phrase my question....I'm assuming it's "OK" to use the backgrounds from ...
