Re: Adversery mages - how many WP/turn is balanced

What are the goals of the “adversary sorcerer”? Balance is only important if you think that this confrontation is just going to be A side standing up dueling B side and you want a roughly 50/50 over who wins. But why would both sides commit to those kind of odds? I guess what I’m saying is: create a...

Re: Is GMs not getting willpower better?

It’s better this way. Coriolis is more designed around a GM metacurrency than FBL was. There’s no reason an NPC is strictly limited to the power/talent level guideline and that’s useful flexibility and the rest of the time you have a solid rule of thumb.

Re: Writing Aslene

Hi Brior. I think this is the expansion of most looking forward to. I think the things I want to see most: -Atmosphere of the volcanic landscape and demon-ruined plains. -Further insights into the cult of Horn. -Tribal politics and information about the Aslene clans and information about the migrati...

Re: Halfling size

A "halfling" warhammer isn't going to be nearly as effective as a "human" warhammer. They do different amounts of damage, that's how you'd handle that in the rules. Sure you might not need all that damage but if you're trying to cause harm to someone in armor, it certainly helps. Similarly a "longbo...

Re: Halfling size

A knife stabbing you in the kidney kills you whether it's a pen knife or a 8 inch dirk. Halfling sized weapons are still those weapons and the increased base damage of a 2 handed weapon is a factor not just for the size of the weapon but for the force that comes with swinging 2 handed. A halfling w...

Re: Historical and Cultural Context of the Mythic North

I am still hoping for some new Egerkrants images showing ordinary life in both rural and urban settings in the Mythic North.
That would be very welcome indeed.

Re: Slavery in Ravenland

So slaves exist but they probably aren't super common and would be more akin to the Roman or Nordic model than anything else. That is, if you're particularly rich you might have a slave or two. The Rust Brothers have their own very specific reasons for wanting slaves. But aside perhaps for very inte...

Re: Vaesen Combat Speculations

As for the chart: it's not useless, it's an accurate statistical model of your chances. Seems unfair to call it useless just because sometimes it "feels" like someone should have succeeded where they didn't. This is an interesting quirk of YZE games in general because pass/fail on the dice is so bin...

Re: Rust Brothers take on Wyrm

We deliberately held back on the Wyrm religion in Ravenland, planning to expand it in the Alderland module eventually. I am however planning to have a questing party of Wyrm monks in the Aslene expansion. These will in all probability be disciples of the Ad Vipra sect that I mentioned on the FB pag...
