Best news all week, month and year! I've already sent the news onto numerous people I've converted to the FC cause to allow them to celebrate as well.

Well done Gents, well done.

Note that I'm a Sydneysider who's only spent a day in enemy territory Melbourne. Basically because of what we refer to as the 'Australia Tax', whereby prices are often inflated well above the additional cost of import, virtually everything will be relatively more expensive, but your having  access to savings in pounds which are usually 2:1 to the aussie dollar most times means you're comparatively rich. Also, all your media runs on exactly the same formats -- yay PAL and region 2/4 interchangability.

Many thanks for the information, I'd seen a couple of the links already but it's always nice to have more. I certainly will be trying to get as much in the shipping container before I set off!

I'm in Melbourne. Neck deep in work ATM but contact me when you arrive.

Thanks Catodon, I'll be arriving late on the 18th, with I'm guessing sketchy access to the internet for a bit, but if you're free and fancy a game of, well anything, sometime then I'm up for it! I'll PM you when I hit the southern 'sphere.

Hello fellow forumites,

Though I know this will only apply to a few on these boards I was wondering if I could enlist the collective wisdom as I depart on my next big adventure. The thing is that this (hopefully not) whinging Pom is leaving his native land of Yorkshire, and moving halfway around the world to the great city of Melbourne.
As I am into all things geek and gaming, I was hoping to ease the transition by continuing my hobbies on arrival and meet a few people whilst doing it. So.. does anyone have any suggestions or local knowledge of the gaming scene in Melbourne? Be it a FLGS, or gaming clubs (tabletop/wargaming/RPGs) or anything else geek culture??

Also are there any purchases I really should make before I go, either due to rarity, or because shipping's a bitch?

Many thanks!

If a magic item grants a feat that you already have, you gain the next feat in the chain. Does a chain specifically mean the B-M-S sequence, or does it apply to the feat pairs as well.
e.g. if I have Martial Arts and gain it again through the Zen Crystal of Wuxia-ness, do I get Master's Touch?

It's a great game - we've several members at our club that did the kickstarter - and I picked up the boxed game  at our trade show, Vapnartak. This was before it was even released and for half price (thanks to being an organiser), that being said I would still have paid full price.

The game is solid rules wise, has great pace, and the campaign makes is for me.

We've already had several proxy games for the Marauders and the Rebs, as well as one large "Day of Deadzone", where not only did the games you play link into your own team's success but also to the success of the campaign on the day!

The only bad thing I find is the figures need some serious cleaning of mold lines, but that's not such a biggie. My Enforcers are currently being heavily modded to be painted up as Spartans squads from Halo Reach Cheesy

If a standard character has tough I and gets hit with a critical which is activated, does the NPC ignore that critical counting that as his use of tough for the scene?

Bull Rush states:
"He moves up to his Speed directly toward 1 opponent whose Size may be up to 1 category bigger than his own. When he enters the opponent’s square, the characters make an opposed Athletics check. If the bullrusher is mounted or operating a personal vehicle he uses the Ride skill instead. The bigger combatant gains a +2 bonus with this check per Size category of difference between them."

If a Large character, has improved stability (through a Strong Giant Blooded human, if you're interested), can they be bull rushed at all by a Medium character, as they effectively count as Huge. Or as improved stability says... you are considered 1 Size larger for resisting Bull rush and Trip attempts.. do you just gain the Size benefit to the opposed roll?

That was my intention, I just didn't want to have missed something!

Just a quickie, but I feel I'm missing something. On page 59 on the table describing the Alignments of Epoch, there are two Paths listed (Plants and Lore) but I don't seem to see these listed in the Paths in the main book.

Are these just mis-prints, or mis-labelled? Or original Paths that were edited out of the main book. (Alex, Pat??)

Ambush Basics - does the granted sneak attack die apply just to the Ambush/Tactics check, or to all attacks?

+1 über geek like for this!

I'm thinking seriously about it, maybe even a mini or two.  I rather wish I knew more about the setting.

Rather than pick up the tabletop ruleset, grab the newer Iron Kingdoms RPG book - that has a wealth of information about the world and the setting. What it doesn't have is the canon stories that have built the history so far, but to be fair you can leave those and not miss much.

The Peter Grant series by Ben Aaronovitch. About a London PC who discovers that magic is still around, and that the Met has a very small unit covering the matter... small being one person since just after WWII - Detective Chief Inspector Thomas Nightingale; head of the Folly and the last officially sanctioned English Wizard.

At one point the wizard is asked 'what was the biggest thing thing you've ever zapped with a fireball?'
'That would be a tiger' said Nightingale.
'Well don't tell Greenpeace. They're an endangered species.'
'Not that sort of tiger,' said Nightingale. 'A Panzerfkampwagen sechs Ausf E'....

At that point our hero, Peter Grant, can pretty much reliably cast a light spell....

The Auld Grump

I second these. A brilliant series of novels that uses the less worn out tropes of fantasy and magic, and mingles them with the "down to earth but slightly resigned to it" British copper's outlook on life. I await the next one expectantly.

My morning:
•  Log onto Crafty Forum.
•  Notice a  heap of posts under Spellbound (My face:  Cheesy)
•  Read through the thread...

Firstly I second the above!... I know I don't post to these boards much but the rate of posting never ceases to amaze me!

Fear not, this was my feeble attempt at a LOTR movie joke. All remains as well as it can be in Spellboundia.

One does not simply walk into Spellbound...

  If that can't keep someone's spirits up and motivated, I don't know what will!

Next.. Thanks TSKoala your previous post made me read this ("One does not simply walk into Spellbound...") with Christopher Walken's voice in my head. Thanks again to this board, that happening is both amazing and scary!

Lastly Crafty_Pat, it'll be worth it however much of a slog it is, both from your point of view and ours. And I for one will wait until I'm old and grey if needs be. Chin up, Sir - we your loyal following will carry you if needs be to the finish line. All hail Spellboundia Wink
