Re: Shove – current or max Strength?

I agree the writing is ambiguous.

Re: Pushed Rolls in Combat

To me pushing a roll is best if the character describes what they are doing, and understanding the drawbacks. My players fight to push rolls, and are bummed when either I don't let them roll at all, or when the single success is needed. Pushing as a mechanic is always about over reaching, giving it...

Re: Redrunner Stats

I'm not invoking Rule Zero, I'm bringing to your attention the fact that rules-as-written, NPCs in this game literally follow different creation rules than PCs.

That's why typical Redrunners or other elves are not restricted to the same amount of attribute points that PCs have. :)

Re: General Game Play Question

When players are exploring, are they allowed to see the map? Like do they have 'god mode map view' enabled?

Yes.

The Player's Handbook (p.9) describes the map as "the centerpiece of the game", so in a default campaign the players are expected to see it.

Re: Elven Age

You've answered your own question: no, not all elves are thousands of years old, for the reasons you've described already. :)

Re: Redrunner Stats

Why do redrunner elves have 15 dice worth of stats? Shouldn't all elves have 14? Or is there a way to increase attributes I missed?  NPCs don't follow the same creation rules as Player Characters - none of the "Typical X" NPC entries in the Gamemaster's Guide have kin talents, for example. Therefor...

Re: Elf Lore vs Elf Rules

So in the world lore for the Forbidden Lands, elves seem to be able to do a lot of things vis-a-vis their gems that there are no rules for. Shed their flesh Reclaim a body, on their own, from their gem Be restored from their gem Why is this the case? I'd like elves to work as described in the legen...

Re: Waterskin/Quiver/Backpack

Does a waterskin let you carry an extra unit of water? Do players not start with water unless they buy a waterskin? My confusion continues I agree that the writing on how consumables, the 4 special containers (knapsack, backpack, waterskin an quiver) and equipment slots work is ambiguous and/or lac...
