Dragonbane BETA Rulebook Feedback - Chapter 2 Your Character

Wed 30 Nov 2022, 11:47

Hi!

Please use this thread to post feedback and report any typos or errors in chapter 2 of the BETA PDF of the Rulebook Dragonbane. Guidelines to remember:
  • Before reporting an error, please check and see if it already has been reported, and if so, don't report it again.
  • If you feedbacked on something in the Quickstart but it's not changed in the BETA, it's not because we missed it - it's because we made a different assessment. (Typos are a different thing.)
  • Please report your feedback no later than January 31.
Thank you!
Fria Ligan

On page 26 in the damage bonus diagram, the 13-16 bonus uses the swedish +T4 instead of the english +D4.

Ch. 2, top right of page 10: Should read "adventurers".
Ch. 2, pg. 12 under Elves Inner Peace: It seems significantly more powerful than the other Kin abilities. Perhaps only given during a Shift Rest and then give a Bane to any one roll immediately after awakened or give a "Dazed" condition type of thing?
Ch. 2 under Mage profession, they are given a knife as a choice for equipment, but none of the magic Skills gives them Knives as an option to use them with. Thank you!

For Merchant: The first paragraph should likely read Buying cheap and selling "high". Correct?
Also, this Profesion gives a potential for a Short Sword, but gives no skill in it. Thank you!

Under Scholar: Again, this profession gets no skills in the potential weapons given as equipment.
Also, in paragraph 1 it should read: gather knowledge about nature and the shrouded history of the world. Your sentence structure there is not quite right... sorry.
Finally, in the boxed text of Omniscient, it should read: within 10 meters "are".
And, in that same boxed text, perhaps this could only be used once per monster? It seems to sort of say that, but not exactly. Just clarification needed maybe.

Page 29, "Always record the number of rations you have left on the row for food under Inventory."

But there is no such explicit "row for food" on the character sheet!

Page 26, "Hit Points is abbreviated as HP."

This is odd in multiple ways. For one, the abbreviation is in the paragraph header, so should be obvious already and the sentence feels redundant.

Also, the next paragraph about willpower points, written in the same style and tone, including having the abbreviation in the header, does NOT have this sentence. Why not? (I guess for layout reasons - but then, the redundant sentence IMHO should be removed from the paragraph about HP, too.)

Page 25, "Modifications to the attributes below do not stack."

I totally do not understand this sentence here. All modifications in the table are given for different attributes, so what modifications are there to stack?

- Dwarven Kin ability Unforgiving: Clarification needed: Does this ability apply to anyone who inflicted damage on you, included those who did so in self defense because you attacked them unprovoked?

- Wolfkin Kin ability Hunting Instinct: the line "or a creature you want to track the scent of, as your prey" - How exactly? Any creature you've met? Any creature at all? Did they have to be where you are within a certain amount of time for you to catch their scent? Clarification very much needed here as this can be abused if players argue it can be anyone at all in the world.

- Mariner ability Sea Legs: Clarification needed. Says you are safe from drowning, but then says you get a boon to your roll. Which is it? Are you safe, or do you merely get a boon? Or are you safe from negative effects, but get a boon to all rolls for doing actions in water?

- Scholar ability Omniscient: Clarification needed on second part of the ability. If you spend the 3 WP and the other PC's attack misses, is this ability wasted as well? If this is the case, this ability seems too weak for it's cost when compared to other class abilities. Recommend giving it an extra benefit or reducing WP cost. First part of that ability seems fine, though.

Hi
I have been thinking that for aesthetics and easy reference it would be preferable for each kin to be on its own page.
