Re: Skills Opinions!

Good luck, have fun? ---- Instead of Bluffing, I would use the word Lie, that includes bluffing, but also adds the outright lying. Bluffing feels more like just overplaying something you have (like in Poker), whereas Lie is a more broader term. Poetry does not sit well for me, it's a really narrow ...

Re: Which setting will you play in?

I'm backing the game almost exclusively for the setting, along with the interesting campaign rules presented. I'm personally not convinced the core game system from Mutant will fit a fantasy setting, since I prefer game systems with more attributes and skills. In my experience roleplaying in fantas...

Re: Peoples and clans

But also bare in mind, that roleplaying was born out of Tolkien's vision, it's the basis of retro games, Actually, I would argue that roleplaying was born out of historical wargaming, and  D&D  is the basis of retro games, not Tolkien.   Empire of the Petal Throne  is a retro RPG which does not use...

Re: Skills Opinions!

We now know from updates that we are looking at 4x4 skills. And it seems class gives you a talent, rather than the special skill common in other Free League games - so I think it is safe to assume that we are looking at 16 skills and no special skills. Sounds good to me :) 16 + skill focus in my ga...

Re: Magic: Divine or Arcane Wisdom?

Whilst I think this is in concept a good solution, I don't like that rolling successes on the dice might mean you still don't succeed.  It's one of the biggest criticisms of a similar system I've played (d10 dice pools, but difficulty determines the number of successes required).  Basically, if the...

Re: History

Harper, I'm not totally sure who you refer to by ”them”. In any case, elves don't necessarily remember everything just beacuse they live long, even less so if they don't rally care and don't keep records. This to me is a possibility rather than something bad, since it let's us decide what they chos...

Re: History

Wouldn't that put them in the living memory of elves? If they live so long, maybe they remember before the men came? Harper, I'm not totally sure who you refer to by ”them”.

Re: Magic: Divine or Arcane Wisdom?

Agree that Mana Points might not be the way to go. I would have Magic as its own skill and let the different spells have different difficulties. So you need a number of successes to be able to cast a certain spell. Maybe different schools of magic would require different talents to unlock the spell...

Re: Magic: Divine or Arcane Wisdom?

I think we know to little about the magic system. Hopefully we get some news in one of the updates ;)
I'm hoping for more than one system
