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?

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.
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.

Well, I just noticed the Mook NPC Quality. Nice! It's exactly what I needed for massive fights. I already use quite a similar system anyway, but without any quantification. This is going to be really useful, including in my SC campaign!  Cool

I like the marilith-like monster in the NPCs section. Not so much the upper "big boobs" part, but rather the lower "powerful goblin-crushing tail" part. The demon really ... scares me. I really like it!
927  Products / Fantasy Craft / Re: Mage. Priest. FIGHT! on: August 11, 2009, 11:09:41 AM
He's rather a character who brings guidance, advice, faith and support to the group. The "wildcard magic caster"-role that D&D gave him is suppressed, and that's a good think IMHO. He has a little magic to support his deeds, but he receives it from a few, specific prayers, not from a whole enormous list... The effects are also chosen in accordance with his path, so they keep the same "flavour".

In the end, he can still be the party healer... if he's a healing devotee! If he's a war priest, of course he won't be able to cure, and that sounds logical to me. He fits a little bit more (again, IMHO) the image I have of a priest: a talker/support character first, and a guy who does a little magic (which he calls miracles) second.  Tongue

Edit: As Walter mentioned below, the Priest is a bit of a Wildcard. But this is only true "at character creation". Once his paths are chosen, he picks a role and sticks to it. The mage, on the contrary, can have such a variety of spells that he can switch role in the very middle of an encounter.

Weird how I completely misread your meaning here. When I ponied up for the PDF my thought process was something like "Hell, if they're going to price it that low I'll throw Darkest Hour into the cart as well." It is possible, however, that I am not a representative sample of the market. Smiley
I don't know, but I had the same reaction. I was expecting something a little more expensive, considering our friends at CG run a small company, developed the product through 2 years, etc. so I was rather happy. Besides, the favorable Eurodollar change rate helps as well. So, just like you, I bought Darkest Hour at the same time. It's quite an event for me, since I never buy adventures, so I get compelled to write my owns - which I enjoy . . . once I'm started. But for once, I've decided to take a look at the goodness you wrote using these awesome rules.

Well. I should stop talking. I'm still in the middle of the third chapter, which I'm thoroughly reading to see if my first impression is right: Is magic less overpowered and though more versatile?  Shocked

Maybe not my favorite, but one of them, clearly. It elegantly replaces cross-class skill points investment, which is not possible anymore. It simplifies calculations and allows a character to be good at a skill that matches his concept but not his class. What else?  Roll Eyes
