Re: Dragonbane Beta v3 Rulebook Feedback - Chapter 3 Skills

I like this idea/intention, but it does create a awkward situation with banes, where you would actively want at least 1 if you have high skills :S THAT ... is an excellent point. I hadn't considered the effect of boons and banes. Fortunately, the rules for boon/banes state, and I quote, " If y...

Re: NPCs and Stress

Wouldn't this follow the same rules when suffering non-self inflicted stress? An Insight check to control your emotions? Insight is basically the equivalent of armor for the brain and it would seem odd that this one pin down mechanic can negate that when being threatened with violence, which is what...

Re: Investigator House Rule #1: Shadowing

Note: what you're describing is not multiple characters stealthing together, but stealthing one at a time, with only one tailing close while the others tail their buddy at a good distance. So only a single person needs to roll Stealth because the 'backups' are too far back to matter for purposes of ...

Re: Dragonbane Beta v3 Rulebook Feedback - Chapter 3 Skills

My own beef with opposed rolls is that the winner is the one that rolled lowest instead of highest while still succeeding like it's done in every other BRP game following a similar format. It basically removes the advantage of a highly skilled individual. I already have a thread about that in these ...

Re: Dragonbane Beta v3 Rulebook Feedback - Chapter 4 Combat & Damage

Page 46. Shields - "There is no skill for shields – instead you can use any STR-based melee skill (i.e. any of them except KNIVES and STAVES) to parry with a shield." This is just my opinion, but I feel like there is a better mechanic than this. I understand not wanting to add a shield sk...

Re: Dragonbane Beta v3 Rulebook Feedback - Chapter 4 Combat & Damage

No. It only breaks if it takes damage that exceeds the durability. So if the durability is 12, they gotta deal 13 points of damage or more to break it. Uhm, I think you may have missed my meaning. I know the durability. What I mean is does damage carry over? If I parry an 8 damage slashing attack o...

Re: Dragonbane Beta v3 Rulebook Feedback - Chapter 4 Combat & Damage

Good point ... and actually leads to another question:

From what I'm reading, durability damage does not carry over right? So if the weapon took 8 damage but it's durability is 12, it doesn't mean that the next hit could break the weapon if it only takes 4 damage, right?

Re: Dragonbane Beta v3 Rulebook Feedback - Chapter 5 Magic

These two are serious concerns and really need to be addressed before the game goes live. Page 58 - Grimoire: What happens to learned spells in your grimoire if you lose your grimoire or it gets destroyed? Do you lose any spells not in memory? If so, can those no longer be used as prerequisites for ...

Re: Dragonbane Beta v3 Rulebook Feedback - Chapter 4 Combat & Damage

Page 41 - Waiting: Just to be clear, Monsters cannot wait, but NPC humanoids like bandits can, correct? Also, what happens if you swap initiative with a group of NPCs who all share the same initiative? Or can you only swap with a single NPC in that group? And if so and your PC ends up sharing the sa...

Re: Dragonbane Beta v3 Rulebook Feedback - Chapter 3 Skills

Page 31 - Attribute Rolls: Recommend removing the word base in base attribute. This may confuse players who think that maybe attribute rolls are done using a base skill rather than the attribute itself. So for example, someone thinking that an attribute roll with Strength 12 is rolled under a 5 inst...
