Re: Where can I find a detailed map of Allansia/Titan?

Exactly! I'm not too fussed about it being non-canon, as I've been making up plenty of locations myself. I have mostly been hoping to perhaps use it for some consistency, rather than canonicism (if that's a word), as a behind the scenes Director-only world map. My players get completely different ma...

Re: Magic Masks

A late thought about this and a possible solution the problems for the people involved: for the seller: they can only have a limited dormant/active masks for the buyer : they have no idea if it's the genuine article for the Director : the heroes can carry lots of masks around and get overpowered whe...

Re: Learning Minor Magic spells

I'm handling it pretty much the same way. Though rather than two for 20exp, I just say it's one for 10exp. Makes for something to spend those last few leftover bits of experience on. So yeah, I've been using the same four rules you mention here except the second one is: -additional ones are learned ...

Where can I find a detailed map of Allansia/Titan?

I see a lot of reference to a map made by Dave Holt, but I can't find it at full resolution anywhere after a good half hour of google and forum searching. I did discover the fantastic resource that is the Atlas of Titan, though, so the search was worthwhile. P: Is Dave Holt's map still available som...

Re: Mass battle

Misread this as "for their background" and heck, meeting on the battlefield would be a great start to an adventure or way for an adventuring group to get together.

Re: City of Thieves module

Here are some ramblings with no guarantee of being good ideas... wasn't sure if you wanted advice on running an adventure in a city or advice on adapting that specific book. :P Just some general thoughts: Think of the city like any other terrain. You don't need to describe every tree in a forest, yo...

Re: Balancing/Challenge Rating

The number of enemies is going to make a huge difference too. If the heroes outnumber the opponents then they will find things much much easier. I'm afraid I forget who, but somebody had a way of lumping groups of enemies into a single opponent with many attacks. Maybe that could be a way to account...

Re: Magic Masks

Feels like magical tattooists are supposed to be uncommon, but not exactly rare (on the coast, at least). While mask magic is unusual and exotic. So you get fairly established prices for the former, but the latter is likely to be entirely at the whims of the mask maker. Game-wise, tattoos are limite...

Re: Magic Masks

Will probably need this for the session I'm running tomorrow, too. If the heroes stop by a particular merchant Don't know about an official list, which would override all this. But some (very rough) quick back of the envelope calculations as a rough starting point... Learning each new mask spell is ...

Fun creature features, tricks and habits?

Thinking about putting together a dungeon/adventure and I'm really keen to have some fun setups for creature encounters. Specifically I'm trying to find some creatures that have an interesting way to ambush the players, or something particularly unique about the fight itself. Sort of, creatures as t...

Re: Disengaging from Combat

Depends if you mean "leaving the area where the fighting is entirely and running away" or "getting back out of this angry orc's sword range for a moment". If it's the second meaning I also couldn't find that in the rulebook. The way my group handles it is by using a homebrew Combat Option (added to ...

Re: Good Necromancy Spells?

Therefore, I think I'm going to impose an Evil/Corruption scale of sorts on my Good Necromancer. Every spell, aside from the usual MP cost, will also add half the MP cost to the Evil/Corruption scale. If that scale tops 50 in a month, which is a plausible, dooming, figure of two spells a day, then ...

Re: Good Necromancy Spells?

Depending on your perspective, raising the dead can be seen as a good thing if it's for a noble cause... and not against the wishes of the person being raised. Such as raising a hero or valiant warrior to defend their homeland or defeat an evil they also fought against in life. Feels like there's pl...

Re: From Firetop to Blacksand

Once they get to the catfish river, if they find someone willing to ferry them down by boat that would shave a huge chunk off the journey time and take them all the way to Blacksand. Though trusting the types of people that are heading to Blacksand may not be the best idea. Especially if you're goin...
