I don't know about the summations, but 4 for double boost? I wouldn't say that this ability is useless but it's definitely not worth 4 points to me. But I might underestimate this one ...

Two quick questions about alchemy, dear designers.

1. It is said in the Forge chapter that all elixirs based on a spell have a Caster Level of 4. Is it still the case for elixirs created with Alchemy Mastery/Supremacy?

2. One of my players wants to create a vial of cloudkill. I've no objection, but I've seen no other area effect vial in the elixir list - or what would be the point of the gaz upgrade. So, is it possible (I will allow him anyway, it's a cool but expensive elixir, but I would like to have an official point of view)?  Tongue

I think I saw that in the book but I cannot find it anymore. Can you have DR/something? That was one of the cool things I liked from 3.5, especially in Eberron where byeshk is your best way to fight Xoriat's offspring. And if it's possible, for NPCs creation, would you diminish the XP value of such a quality? Such as 2 XP/grade of DR/specific material or type of damage?

Or is it easier to use Achille's Heel (byeshk)?

Thanks, but the player finally decided to try a new character concept. I guess we'll see if anything new comes out when Spellbound: the Trickster is released.

I don't know if anyone else is having trouble with this. I will be starting a FC game soon, and one of my players was a psion in the previous adventure, an "egoist" to be precise. He did rely on a spell in particular, of course: polymorph. I can imagine this spell was "omitted" in FC because of its highly unbalanced nature. Though, it was one of the most fun spells of the OGL. I took a look at the Pathfinder alternative: I don't like it. It's not what I'm looking for. So, can anyone help me with this?

I was thinking of limitations based on XP value of the mimicked monster, but I was wondering what value would be balanced or not for, say, a 4th or 5th level spell. And there are plenty of other considerations, including size, number of "known" or "available" forms, types, Disguise, etc. What would you do?

Umberto Eco: big fan, though a little heavy sometimes
Jean d'Ormesson: profound, human, quite readable for a member of l'Académie Française
Clive Cussler: I don't read it a lot anymore, but he was my favorite adventure author when I was younger. The first English books I read were his.
John Grisham: Same thing. I had my "juridical thriller" period and he was my favorite of the genre.
Victor Hugo: More than his writings, I like the man behind. I'm not fond of his poetry, but his novels are emotionally very strong.
Jules Vernes: Very inspiring, his books made me dream all my childhood ... and they still do, sometimes. I guess if I love steampunk so much, it might be because of him.
Edgar A. Poe: Though I don't like Lovecraft (I know, I know), Poe is a whole different matter. I love most of what he did, though here again I'm not fond of poetry.
Peter H. Hammilton: I discovered him when his very first book was published. I've fallen in love with his writings since then.
Brandon Sanderson: Seriously, guy, I couldn't stand fantasy at all! I've read Tolkien, Howard, Pratchett... It's not that I hate them, I just don't like their style. Fantasy doesn't fit me... or so I believed. Brandon reconciled me with this genre. I love Mistborn!

There are many others. But these few I really love - or loved some time ago.  Grin

I share mine with Al Gore and Ewan McGregor! I'm Obi Wan Kenobi's reincarnation! I knew it!

And bon anniversaire Gentry and Morganti!

Your products seem to have been well placed on the Mongoose booth, weren't they?  Cool

Indeed, Happy Birthday!

Right. Unless you use the Greater Magic Items campaign quality.

when we said no, they were noticably (and typically verbally) relieved.
Totally! Allomancy and Ferchemy need much more versatility than the d20 system could ever allow. I just hope your new storytelling system will be as great as Spycraft's. Good luck and start teasing us with previews as soon as you can!  Smiley

PS: I'm almost done reading the trilogy. I've started book 3 yesterday. As soon as I'm done, I will post a wishlist.

Remember, using a 1h weapon with 2 hands gives you a +4 Str.
So if I wield a broadsword 2-handed and I have a Str 11, it works?
928  Products / Fantasy Craft / Re: Fantasy Craft Q&A Thread! on: August 18, 2009, 08:52:11 AM
The problem with broadsword is that it's massive, and the description of that quality says that you need Str 15 to use it. Unless I missed something, it means that you can't use the weapon at all unless you have Str 15, right?

My Spycraft players have been quite disappointed when they discovered that dramatic conflicts have been taken off FC core rulebook (I forgot to tell them when I learned it myself). I agree with them, though, since I consider dramatic conflicts to be the best rule ever added to the d20 system. Besides, I was expecting duelling and mass combat rules for a long time!

So, even if you have no firm date yet, could you give us an idea of when you expect to release the supplement dedicated to dramatic conflicts? And maybe also an idea of its cost in PDF? Thanks!  Smiley

And while I'm here, when do you (roughly) expect to release the settings? Price? Tongue

From re-reading the action dice rules, you can only use one per check now.
~D~
No. You can use only one to boost a check. But if you want to confirm a threat, for instance, you can spend as much as you want. Besides, you can also boost a check and then confirm a threat afterward on the same roll.

Read carefully Paragraph 1 "spend 1 action die" and Paragraph 3 "spend 1 or more action dice", pages 62-63.

So the Agile Talent applies to action dice used to boost a check.
