Bind Magic living creature restriction

Why is there a specific restriction on bind magic that the spell can only be cast on dead items. Some spell effects would seem to be far for useful to last a quarter day or more. Is it always best to cast a spell into to an object that would then be able to cause the effect, here's an example: Beast...

Re: Beastmaster help

so if you spent 10 WP with components and were a half elf and didn't count on rolling any sixes you could control a STR 24 animal? That would be cool. would it be too powerful to modify the bind magic so that after casting the spell effect for beastmaster you perform a bind ritual to change the dura...

Re: Valondians

you might even work up a new kin talent that makes sense for what you see the Valondians to be like. This would also be a good time to think about what stat they would claim as primary and what other racial flavor you want to provide. If you try it and after playing it like what you've come up with ...

Re: Question about Minstrel’s Path of the Song

Whole audience. I guess my name is monty hall...I had understood that it was per person, I seems good to me, it means the minstrel can help the party, it makes the path more important. and even if there are 20 paying people in the crowd it isn't that much money. The minstrels clothes, lute and cut ...

Re: Monsters too easy?

When the PCs go full nova and blow a lot of Willpower on activating their talents. Immediately bring in a demon when 5+ WP are spent, perhaps multiple if 7+ perhaps greater if 10. You might even keep count in the battle and that may have consequences. While there isn't a specific rule that allows f...

Re: Safe Casting

Think I have a grasp on it and I believe we successfully used safe cast rules in-game.  Compare  The rank of caster in path related to spell being cast  Spells read from the Grimore are 1 less rank If it is less than the path rank then you can spend fewer WP to power the spell which is called "Safe ...

Re: Populating Dungeons

Wow. Not coming from a D&D background, I'm a bit amazed a DM rely on some kind of pre generated weighting system of the developer to determine encounter.  one of the better tools to that end is http://kobold.club/fight you get to decide the total session pool, how much you want to expend of the par...

Re: Monsters too easy?

So these are things that I'm doing for the same reasons: Waves of monsters ( come upon one set, another shows up a round or 3 in) A Leader who uses a method to lead (like a matron harpy, a daddy ogre, an alpha worg, etc. Adding better armor, talents, skills to kin and bumping up group numbers.

Re: Can all race procreate with each other?

Wouldn't it be hilarious if a long awaited heir to the orcish war clan was soon to arrive, the scion was the chief who was the strongest male, the mother the strongest Orc, the baby is a perfectly formed and genetically correct progeny but happens to be human and occurred because of recessive traits...

Re: Encounters When

There's a cool system that was used in a game I played in, it comes from Angry DM, so you can probably find it if you looked, ok I looked: https://theangrygm.com/redesigning-random-encounters-1/  and the followup  https://theangrygm.com/redesigning-random-encounters-2/ . Essentially there's a tensio...
