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?

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

And for those more recent periods see here. I love the fact they skirt so close to the names, but never quite say them Wink

Working on a Bartender one next.  One of my players inspired these.  Smiley

Being a long time bartender, surely this means your offensive weapon is your charm.. and your ability to stay calm even when being told how to do your job by someone who is currently lacking the ability to stand.

OOoooo Thanks for those links Blankbeard. I'll be lost in worlds of my own (well kinda!) creation for ages now!

For those that like their steampunk revenge based and bloody Dishonored is 50% off on Steam over the weekend. One of the better games of last year IMO.

(There's a movie.  I forget the title.  U.K.  Apocalypse.  Chick with a prosthetic eye that she can roll around and use as a camera.  Yeah.  One player wants to try to 'steampunk' that character into FC.)

The movie's Doomsday, starring Rhona Mitra, if that helps!

Great idea for an enemy force btw - looking forward to what you come up with.

Colour me interested! I like all the ideas presented, and the setting is brilliantly novel.
