  1. Any spoilers about new spells and specialisation trees in EPG? How they work or what can we expect 🤔

    Hello, Your character must spend a maneuver each turn to direct the summoned creature to perform an action and a maneuver. Your character may summon two (or more) creatures at once. Hope this helps! Hello, With a literal interpretation of the rules, no the creature will not. How it behaves is up to the GM, and that might involve attacking its original target, or it might suddenly run away, hide, attack the summoner, or get bored and start sniffing around its environment. This caveat exists so that players do not abuse the summoning rules. They may engineer a situation where the creature gets put into a situation where it has no choice but to fight, or its very presence is all the player needs! But the only way to guarantee that it does what the player wants is to direct it, and GMs should highlight the uncertainty of summoning creatures otherwise. Your player can summon two creatures and concentrate on both of them, provided they have the maneuvers to do so!
  3. TEMPLAR (ADVANCED) Tier: 4 Activation: Passive Ranked: Yes Your character must have purchased the Templar (Improved) talent to benefit from this talent. Your character can now cast one additional spell using Divine skill per encounter per rank of Templar (Advanced) talent. TEMPLAR (ADVANCED) Tier: 3 Activation: Passive Ranked: No Your character must have purchased the Templar (Improved) talent to benefit from this talent. Your character can now cast two spells using Divine skill per encounter, instead. What do you think about these talents? Which of these two seems more balanced?
  4. Yes, but on the Wiki you also have a description and a picture of a monster
  5. There is a nice list of monsters on Descent Wiki. You should take a look. http://descent2e.wikia.com/wiki/Monster
  6. Signature Spell (Supreme) Tier: 5 Activation: Passive Ranked: No Your character must have purchased the Signature Spell (Improved) talent to benefit from this talent. In addition, when your character casts their Signature Spell that can be sustained, it lasts until the end of the current encounter without your character having to use the Concentration Maneuver. You may end the spell at will.
  7. It's something I run across with one of my Players lately. I'm a bit concerned that this talent can be to strong as written. As my Player is a Primalist, I can easily see him casting so much spells paying 2 Strain each time, to simply pass out only to transform into "the Beast" thus recovering all the Strain suffered. From the beginning, I saw the RAW's cost of spells casting (2 Strain) as a good rule that balances the game-play of spell casting characters. A Mage/Druid character lacking that limitation can simply loose its flavor. It also bugs my whether they can still use their Melee Heavy weapons after the change or can they more or less function as a normal intelligent being. I see this talent as a some kind of a lycantropy curse or a DDish Druid's Wild Shape ability. To prevent abusing the game rules and creating an overpowered characters, I'm thinking of making a rule of thumb. After passing out from Strain, character drops everything he is holding in his hands, next he undergoes a transformation at the begging of his next turn. His armor and other personal equipment merges with character. He usually cannot use his Melee Weapons or at least he can't use them properly as his hands becomes sort of animal paws. That leaves the character with a boosted Brawn and unarmed combat dmg and crit rating. When the character rolls a Despair symbol on any skill check, animal nature takes over. Character looses his mind and can attack an allied character his next turn! Isn't that too harsh (IMO not as the Player gains second life in fact and this is Tier 1 talent)? Any other ideas?

    Rules Question: Hi! I got three questions about RoT rules. 1. First one is concerning a Curse Doom spell effect. It is written that you cannot touch dice showing Triumph or Dispair symbols. But can you change Proficiency or Challenge dice faces to show such symbols? For example, on Proficiency die I rolled two advantage symbols. Can I change it to the Triumph? 2. Second question is about Conjure spells. I got some trouble understanding the scope of this spell action. What type of creatures my players can summon? Using this spell can they summon everything that exists in Terrinoth? Even dwarf soldiers or human mages? Or can a two-handed weapon they Conjure be magical? 3. Last but not least, this question is connected with a previous one. Summoned creatures got statistics as described in the RoT books? Or should stats depend on Mages ranks in Knowledge (Lore)? Thanks in advance! Answer: Hi! In order… Yes, you could change the facing on a die from an Advantage to a Triumph, or a Threat to a Despair. You can only summon minions (or rivals with the additional effect), but the GM has the final say on what would be allowed here. Iin general any NPC listed as a minion (or rival with the additional effect) would usually be ok. Weapons would be mundane types, so no magic weapons (though a weapon appearing out of thin air would certainly appear magical to others!). You and your GM can create new versions of Conjure or new additional effects to summon more powerful allies or magical items too. Summoned creatures would use their appropriate profile, yes. So a summoned Reanimate would use the profile from Realms of Terrinoth. Remember though that these aren’t the real thing—they are magically created simulacrum of that creature/item. Hope this helps and thanks for playing! Tim Huckelbery
  9. Hi fellow Terrinoth explorers! I got some difficulties with Summon spell effect (Conjure action). How do you hande it in your games? Do you allow your PCs to summon everything what they desire? Or do you set some restrictions? What statistics summoned creatures have? And last but not least, does ranks in Knowledge (Lore) have any impact on power of summoned allies?

    Rules Question:Hello! Just wanted to know, why Druidic Circlets and Magic Rings implements didn't make it to Realms of Terrinoth book (Table 2-8)? Thanks in advance! Rules Answer: Hi! Basically, we viewed these as not really part of the Terrinoth setting and we wanted to devote the space they would have taken in the book to other subjects. You’re free to adopt these into your games if desired, of course. You could even incorporate runebound shard magic into them as well to make some really unique items! Hope this helps and thanks for playing! Tim Huckelbery RPG Producer Fantasy Flight Games

    Answer Received: It depends on how you qualify magic like invisibility or flying, but yes, if you consider them to be an Augment type spell, then using the rules as presented in Genesys, spellcasters using Arcana would not be able to do those things. However, the magic rules as presented in Genesys are designed to be a template and a starting point for your own games, and do not have to be used unaltered. Specifically, we designed these rules so that there would be three magic skills that each had benefits and drawbacks. In your game, you may want spellcasters who use Arcana (“wizards”) to have a more wide-ranging spell catalog. In that case, you can certainly give them access to Augment, or even create a new spell type that allows them to do these things (maybe call it Enhance, or Alter). Hope that helps!

  12. I envy you all! Meanwhile can you tell me to which Spell Actions the Bard talent give PCs access?
  13. Can you unveil the mystery of Elven Magic? Is it playable for characters? What makes it different from "normal" magic from the Genesys corebook?
  14. So a next question. I assume while there aren't any new spells actions, there must be some new spell effects (ie. Only Verse or Only Rune). Is that correct? Any examples?

  16. Daedalum said: I think having associations and connections that tie the player to major NPCs and ropes them in to pursue the adventure may turn out punishment enough . +1 I hope that Connections & Motivations will be used in the adventure's plot also in a bad way for Players just to raise the tension in a group
  17. Yepesnopes said: In this game, it won't be too difficult for you (if you would like to) to kill your players in the next encounter. That's the thing I also wanted to state. To clarify, when you've got combat oriented PCs on higher ranks (2 or 3+) in one team, combat usually ends very fast. It's true for both Players and NPCs. As I do really like throwing human opponents at my players (i.e. bandits and their leaders, masterminds, mercenaries), I find encounters too deadly. This state is caused by the high amount of damage that both sides can deal by using appropriate action cards. To be honest, I like when a game session is perilous, but IMO something is broken when you can deal 25+ damage in one hit with a 70+% probability. One of my players (a priest of Sigmar), asked me once if he can swap his action card, after he dealt huge amount of damage with a Reckless Clave and killed the main enemy in one hit, when nobody else had even a chance to act during that fight
  18. thePREdiger said: My PCs are around 18 advances and still steamroll any content I throw at them - so I ramped up the chances of the NPCs so they can put up a fight. There is a 2h combo with a hammer that brains every mob I have in store. action deals normal damage and has a chance to knock the mob prone. Once prone a reaction action is triggered. that double attack with the sigmar priest buff +1 str/tou really fells any mob (or deals crucial damage) Before I bought a 3rd edition almost three years ago, I was uncertain if combats will be perilous enough. Now I think that they're far too deadly. With a Giant Slayer and a priest of Sigmar in a team, my players are able to end any encounter up in less then two rounds. If they win initiative, the enemy stands not a chance against them.
  19. You guys should take a look at that: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/9077657/SW-EotE-Reference-Sheets-v2.pdf Lots of rules that WFRP 3 is lacking (i.e. holding a breath, falling) were clarified in SW:EofE. Cheers
