Do you get to know what a dying effect is before choosing whether to apply your resistance to dying effect?

I think you should as it is pretty boring being on the floor for 5 minutes, its rubbish when there is an OOC lottery in choosing and it leads to stupid scenarios like elves having to fall over for 5 mins to a spiritual stairway to death?

Surely you get hit by the firestrike or whatever and can choose to suck it up or fall over for 5 mins.

S

It's never been written down. My personally opinion on how it should work is you are aware of the dying effect and can decide at that point to apply it or not. No working out how much damage you take and if it would kill you or not. Just a "You take this dying effect, do you want to fall over?" Yes/No answer. Sort of like a retro really. Not doing it this way is basically just a bit rubbish with the way the system has evolved.

In the new Almanac it list the Hollow Bone Goblin tribe can play Forest Guardians and Leywalkers but not the base life.

Any chance can have the life's for these goblins.

Thanks Iain

Leywalkers use life as a Silverfolk Spy (35/12 at 8th) and forest guardians and Forest guardians have life as a Goblin pathfinder (39/15 at 8th)

Do all abilities that require prep time require that ability to be used immediately following the prep or can they be 'stored' up for later? Examples of the top of my head include: strike death blow, affinity with nature, flick of the wrist, mighty strikes and permutations but there are many more.

Thanks
Sam

yes they do scorpion. Concentration also can't be done when being hit/actively parrying monsters or the like.

I also remind people about the rules for locs being severed applies to corpses.

What is the consequence of being level drained with regards to life, power, resistance and casting levels?

How long does it take to come back?


Everyone will hate you now for asking this but:

You lose a level from you base class. For system and battle-boarding ease this means:

Your level of casting is reduced by 1 (so a 1st class priest can't cast 8th lvl miracles).
You lose a level of resistance
If your base life is from your base class it drops.
Your maximum power for power uses if reduced (so an 8th level warrior priests with 24 spirits, drops to 6th, his max spirits becomes 18).
If the ref is brave enough you lose supernatural innates (so neuronics, AP, etc.), but often this is easy to do.

They are earnt back like levels, so if I am reffing it's about 10 encounters to get one back, but depends on the situation.

If you've bought the Spiritual Vessel MR, can you still cast a Spirit Invis? And if yes, what would be the effect of that spirit invis?

Is it the same as before, you're just immune to all Spiritual effects? or does it (Like Paul reckons) either act as a sort of vanish animate and you stop existing for the duration, or does it just kill you?

Thanks in advance

You can't cast it as you are spirit only.

As a general rule you need to have "hits" (as in can take damage from" at least one power base. So no being Immune to physical damage (immortal), casting spirit invis, mind barring, and casting earth shield for example.

The Priest Status: Witness of Hidden Secrets

The “Detect Life” ability (assuming it’s not a typo and meant to be Detect Lie!) how does it function? 20’ range like other Detect abilities or is it more a 1” discern?

Is it supposed to have a verbal?

(OK, so I'm entirely willing to buy the whole status just for the spirit point reduction as both my neutral priests but it would be nice to know what the rest of it does! smile.gif )

It's a typo as mentioned in another thread, so is Detect Lie.

Wind dancer life at 8th is 51/15, but 7th is 48/16, is this a typo and it's meant to be 51/17?

You have 29/9? or more sensibly 51/17 is correct.

Hi Lee

In the Lucky Dip this year, I got Priest status 'Learned One'. I think there might be a typo...

Stage 2 - Scrolls from this status can not be advanced miracles on the character's list.

Rather than not, should that reaad 'now'?

Cheers

MARK

Correct.

I just noticed the below:

The Very Well Equipped muti class is only available to Scout Subclasses and Witchs but in the Witch’s Muti Class costs have no costings.

So what are the costings for Witchs to take the above muti class?.

Thanks Iain

They can, and good spot. Let's go for same costs as Thugs.
But if you have a strong option character then might be cheaper by points apps.

The races book I'm looking at states 'Athfanal may join professional guilds with the guild masters permission, and they may only belong to Athfanal social or professional guilds'

Should the second part read 'may only belong to Athfanal social or political guilds'?

While I'm on Athfanal, are you able to clarify what the benefits of 'Skinning' are? Unable to find anything clear on it in the books other than 'allowing animal hides/fur to be turned into armour', presumably this means people without the 'skinning' skill can't?

Yes should be Social or Political.
Basically correct. You can skin a wolf/bear/balrog and turn it into armour and wear.

Hi,

Combat agility - first jump in a series of jumps - you are may not be struck during the jump

Is the important bit the first jump or the series of jumps

e.g. if I have the ability and I jump once but don't jump again quickly afterwards am I not able to be struck? or am I not able to be struck only if I do more than one jump in quick succession?

sorry if it is a small point and totally obvious

thanks
Richard

So you use a jump and can't be struck. If you jump again you can be struck.
There needs to be a definite break in the jumps for it to restart, so not jump, run two steps and then jump again.

Ok right I know that a Troll cannot benefit fully from 1/2 effect Fire from Table 3 but can they benefit from the below stuff to gain 1/2 Fire.

Walk Though Fire spells
Resist Fire (Druid Evocation)
Neuromastery Fire (Self)

Thanks Iain

correct except trolls can't have neuronic.

.
Not that I'm planning on playing an evil priest anytime soon but with regard to Summon Vampire it says the vampire can turn into a bat, rat and wolf at will.

In these forms can they do any damage? (am guessing not)

Do they retain the hits the vampire had when it transformed?

Can they be harmed in these forms (kind of thinking they could be subject to range attacks but probably not touch / blows as tricky to hit a rat etc)

Cheers

Ben

It's all a bit vague but:
Wolf - You can probably fight and be hit normally.
Bat - You are a flying bat so can't hit people and can fly
Rat - Like a bat, but rather than fly can fit through small holes.

Otherwise yes they retain the hits and stuff.

Scout “recognise” abilities - eg neuronic, EP, spirit

I’m spiritless - can I recognise spirit? Assuming not, as says as per priest ability which would be a spiritual info effect?

I buy vessel of the dragons MR (the ‘magic only’ one, I think that’s what it’s called!)

Do I at some point lose the ability to recognise neuronics and EP I’d owned?

Thanks
Dave

They are the relevant powerbase. Same is true for scholar now.

So magic only means only rec mana.

Hi

All priests can MC Spiritual Vessel.

A spirit warrior buying this MC... as written they can use and benefit fully. Thus they can cast from the separate spirit pool. And there is nothing written about sharp weapon restrictions.

Could a Sp Warrior with a bastard sword (say) therefore buy and benefit fully. Or is there some 'missing wording' requiring spiritual choice, blunt weapons, etc. Guessing it is fine as written, but wanted to check.

Alasdair

[I] No as written Spirit warriors can't have spirits unless they buy the ability to, so can't use the spirits.

Where does it say trolls cannot? (Evo races? OC?) I couldn't find it within the current rules)

Og

It seems to be an omission. trolls can't learn Neuronics.

HI.

There is a massive disparity in the information for playing a half troll between Realm of Glass and Evolution: Races.
This being the case, which post 8th list is to be referenced?

cheers

Og

Evolution Races is correct, except for the fact they still can't learn Neuronics.

Can an Ishmaic High wizard:

1. Carry a magical glaive, and
2. Parry with it?

The descriptions of Ishmaics and Glaives seem very keen to let them have them. And is it a short spear, or dagger with a long handle for system purposes?

Stuart

Glaive is a short spear.

You could carry a glaive, but still couldn't parry with it as you can't use weapons.

Are Traditions and Status the same thing.

The new warrior book states you can have one tradition, later it states you can have one status. Is it one or the other or can you now have one of each?

They are different.
You have a tradition slot.

You can buy A warrior status from the book, or get a non-standard version of one.

You can then have other statuses, such as KotL/other guilds etc.
