You folks should be watching our DriveThruRPG page this weekend.

NO, not about Spellbound *, but about something new... for Fantasy Craft. Smiley

* You can expect something about Spellbound soonish though. We're really close to talking about that too.

Consider it done, man. Consider it done.

I think the point of the matter is not the efficacy of a shield bash or which feats are optimal for a build, but rather does X feat work like Y. By RAW, no, as interpreted but our fine forum members. This has however brought up the question of whether there is a way to get the extra attacks per round with your main hand weapon if you have something, anything, in your offhand. Apparently not. Truly sinister, if you ask me.

That's precisely how I understand it, and seems to be both the intent and the RAW.

A sword-and-board fighter has to use TWF for extra attacks. Ditto a swashbuckling pirate type with a cutlass in one hand and pistol in the other. If you want to use Darting Weapon, you need to be using only one weapon -- a two-handed greatsword, a rapier with a free off-hand, a sword in one hand and some kind of tool (a lantern, say) in the other, etc.

The problem I see with requiring TWF for a sword-and-board fighter is that one attack must be made with the sword and the other must be made with the shield per RAW. This seems counter to the idea of wanting to make multiple attacks with the same weapon which seems to be the intent of Darting Weapon.

But for something like Darting Weapon that specifies that you must be armed with only one weapon, that's a no-go, because you are in fact armed with many weapons.

Following that chain of logic, you could disallow the use of Darting Weapon for simply having anything in the off-hand.

I'd likely go with Prestdigi for the would-be thief and opposed by either Notice or Defense depending on the awareness of the victim.

Personally Sletch, I'd use Prestidigi at my table. You, however, need something in black and white. Page 300 has skill conversion notes and lists Use Rope as Athletics. Hope this helps.

I can't say too much yet, but I am keeping an eye on this thread.  Cheesy

Can you Take 10 on a Knowledge Check? I'm getting a bit tired of rolling 4s when I have +8+2 when I have a relevant synergy.

I see nothing against it, but I assume the extra time needed would probably be poring over notes or getting lost in thought for a ridiculous amount of time. Circumstantial at best, in my opinion.

I mean, come on, it is kind of funny Smiley.

From that angle? Certainly.  Grin

Sorry, my reply was meant to be somewhat snarky response to the "crossbows are useless" implication.

I actually agree with you and I've used crossbows to decent effect on several occasions precisely as the 1st-round ranged-weapon opener for a melee-based character.

I think crossbows make for a great basic weapon choice and our group uses them much the same way. I do, however, see the position in regards to 'investing' in crossbows. Lack of feat support is a common complaint in various discussions I've observed.

But Strategery should count.
Not that I have any ideas, but what about things/tricks/etc that the participants could do that aren't abstracted?

Number one reason for having drinks of differing damage values. Sort of gambling/bidding with various strengths of booze. Maybe allowing for poison resistance?

Also in the spirit of the Red Dragon Inn, slipping in different drinks or spiking a drink via slight of hand could work. Not something I detailed, but fully endorse.

Just treat it as a complex task. You need to win three checks before you opponent or something.

Hmmm...  cut it down to 3 failures instead of 5. Lowering the number of possible grades should cut down on pacing issues.

(could be done, but I'm a bigger fan of L5R's bidding system,

The same line of thought is what this is for.
