Welcome to the boards Woorloog!
In design, I considered all areas as radius - "within 10 paces" from the user, for example.
Hmm, this will make some area effects very large...
The answer is both
The pace is not intended to be anything other than a rough estimate of distance, all of which is pretty loose in the game and the source material. I think using the Roman Pace is cool, so I'd lean that way if I had to choose
...but since the units are "flexible" i guess it is easy enough to limit and change things as the situation warrants.
Yes it is! Work has begun on the product, in fact. More on that later
Very nice, loved The Alloy of Law, Allomancy fits early 20th century setting very, very well. Can't wait to play to it!
EDIT My brother started to wonder about what happens when you throw only sixes (challenge roll). Is it automatic success or do you have to reroll or what? Didn't find any rule concerning this (might've missed it though, if so, which page i should be looking at?).
