GNOMES!
47  Products / Fantasy Craft / Negative Wounds and Healing Vitality on: January 12, 2013, 10:06:50 PM
A situation came up in a game last night that I am running. A character was knocked into negative wounds and was given a vitality potion. This raised two questions, 1) would this stabalize him and 2) would he also regain consciousness. A quick perusal through the book and we didn't find anything.

I ruled that it stabalized him and he regained what vitality the potion provided but he did not gain consciousness as stabilizing doesn't normally cause you to wake up (either by getting lucky or with the medicine skill). But, you also don't regain vitality with either of those.

I am not saying it will be out by the end of the year but, they could release the PDF version well before the print version.  If I recall correctly thats what they did for the Adventure Companion and Mistborn.

Honestly, I got tired of the whole zombie idea about 5 yrs ago

The only part of Zombies I never actually got into was the movie/tv show see. I like the literature though, the first book I read was World War Z and it just spun off from there. The only zombie movie I watched that I really liked was Zombie Land. From what I have seen though, most everyone is tired of Zombies. I just get tired of the movies because they all tend to feel the same...

ANYWAY... Transformers 4, it's cool they are making another one, but I don't really know who this Mark Wahlberg fellow is. The the articles I've read seem to like him though.

I have thought about it a little more and I can say one good thing about the trailer. I can guarantee that I will not be disappointed that the movie does not match up with the book when I go see it, I can tell that much from the trailer. I've gotten the disappointment out of the way already, so I can go watch the movie without 'book-bias' and enjoy (or not) based it on it's own merits (or flaws).

World War Z Trailer

Havent read the book, so i only get to judge by what i see... and i'm not sure yet... I like the zombie "wave" idea...

You should read the book.  9 out of 10 shamblers agree.

Agreed, read the book.

Also, mixed feelings about the trailer, but holy crap that

scene was awesome scary.

Yeah, it looks like it'll probably be a decent zombie action flick but it looks like it's World War Z in name only.

Ah, well, Hollywood...

But thats means that the Monk could have 1000Gp and spend it with no problem, and at the end of the adventure being at 0gp and suffer no ill effect...

I would make that if the monk during the adventure opts to gain some money then he looses the Wis bonus until the end of the adventure, on the following adventure if the monks opts to still keep the money he will suffer again the loss of the Wis bonus

True, but that seems a little harsh, running with the same logic, if the monk even picks up a stray silver piece off the ground, only to give it up to the local orphanage later, he would lose his Wisdom then as well.

Keep in mind the Monk can't carry any more than 50sp in gear at once anyway, and may not keep Magic Items or Holdings as Prizes. I think the point of the last line is the Monk can't save their money. They can carry the raw coin if they want but they have to give it up before the adventure ends. Either giving it to their companions for their uses, donating it to someone, etc.

Hmm... interesting. This is how I would play it where I running a game with the Monk

1. At the end of each adventure the Monk must give up all of their coin, it goes to charity or just drops it on the ground.

2. If the Monk opts not to, for whatever reason, they lose their Wisdom bonus in the following adventure.

OR you can just not give the player any choice and all of the money disappears just prior to the end of each adventure, POOF! gone. Sort of like having excess Prizes, but for monies.

Either way, that is kind of interesting, hadn't noticed until now.

I've been meaning to ask this question but always forget when I am actually at a computer: Will there be a spell chain for summoning constructs/robots in Spellbound?

There was an Artifice spell chain in Seer called Construct Assembly that did just that, so it's safe to say there will be. You can easily use it yourself as it's really just another Nature's Ally/Call From Beyond/Conjure Elemental clone, there isn't a whole lot to those spells except the pregen'd creatures.

Very true! I had actually thought about that, but at the same time its nice to have it in the book for the 'officialness' and all that.

I was curious about how the holiday on Monday may have affected shipping this week since you ship stuff on Mondays. I ordered a set of the Mistborn dice over the weekend, since the post office was closed on Monday would they have shipped on Tuesday, or will the dice ship next Monday?

First, we don't particularly ship on Mondays. We ship once a week and the day moves around as needed (based on travel, con appearances, workload, and a host of other things). We actually very rarely ship on Mondays actually, tending to ship sometime between Tuesday and Friday each week.

In this case the system works to everyone's advantage because we don't miss a week due to the holiday! Smiley

Ooooh, I misinterpreted the e-mail, but rereading it now it makes more sense.

Thanks!

Just because what we need is more miniatures: Bombeshell Babes

And in Planetary Annihilation news. They have reached the Water planet and Naval units goal and are moving on to Gas Giants, about another 100k to go. Also more mini's, 3 specifically for backers at the $95 level and above...

After that Metal Planets!


And some concept art of some special backer Commander Models.

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron launch trailer: High Moon really has been knocking the trailers for this out of the park. I hope the game lives up to the hype.

As a Transformers fan, and a reasonable FPS fan, the only problems I had with it are a few nitpicks (mostly in a couple of the voice actors not being close enough to the original, though not bad in and of themselves, just not the familiar ones). It's a fun game, and I'm already on my second play through. It plays very similarly to the prior game, in both single and multiplayer, though there's a few improvements and differences.

Out of curiosity, which voices bothered you? The only one that stuck out for me was Steve Blum as Shockwave, it just didn't quite fit. It did start to grow on me a little bit toward the end though.

I really like the upgrade system during the campaign, that was a pretty cool addition and parts where you play Grimlock were awesome. I've only played a little bit of the Multiplayer, I like the customization options that are there now. I'm annoyed with the cloak for the Infiltrator though, it doesn't do a very good job at hiding you.

I want to give it a second play through, but I have Darksiders 2 to finish before I get to that.

EDIT: hmmm... I guess my biggest nitpick would actually be that they renamed Slag to Slug.  Angry

I actually changed what I did since my last post:

Vampire Pledge
Fire Giant King & Queen
Frost Giant King & Queen
There Be Dragons
Mind Your Manors
Figure Case
Clockwork Dragon
Forces of Nature
Fire Giant Warriors
And I am trading out the Sophie mini for an Orcpocalypse

Depending on how long we are given to add stuff to our pledge and what options we have post KS I may also tack on the Undead Giant, the Pathfinder Red Dragon and maaaaybe Nethermaul and Kalarax Reborn. I'm not sure I would find much use out of the two skeletal dragons, though I am sure they will look awesome. I already have ideas forming for an Undead Giant and the Pathfinder Red Dragon could easily be a FC Drake, it's about the right size. My only disappointment is that we didn't see any Water/Ice or Air Elementals in that clear material, hopefully we'll see them at a later date.

 In March when all of this stuff is released I am also going to invest in some more of the smaller mini's such as the skeletons. In the mean time I should pick up a few of the ones that have already been released though, that minotaur looks spiffy.
