    i feel like that will be entirely narrative. you'll simply ask the GM - "is the NPC aware that I'm here and that i'm a threat to him?" - if the answer is no, backstab!

    Hey everybody - I've created a basic style sheet explaining how to use the Terrinoth GM Binder and could use some more testers to see if i messed anything up. 
     
    At this point you do need to install the "Bolton" and "JSL Ancient" fonts - which can be found freely on the internet at various font sites. When this goes live that will not be needed.

    I stole your idea and did proper formatting for it. I've only done Arcane so far.

    Question:
    Hello, There are several beautiful maps in the Realms of Terrinoth book - however there is nothing by which to judge scale. Is there any sort of scale available so that rough distances can be determined?
     
    Answer:
     
    Hi Josh! We imagine Terrinoth (page 139) around 250 leagues across at its widest point (roughly 900 miles). Travel time in days is likely more an issue, and our benchmark is 5 leagues per day on foot on average.  It probably would take 7 or so weeks to cross it on foot (3-4 on horseback), and several days to travel from Tamalir to Greyhaven that way. This is something the GM can change, though, to best fit the game and the plot. One GM might have Terrinoth as big as the US, another the size of Europe, a third eh size of France. And all are perfectly fine.
    We’re discussing this here and may add some guidance along these lines either in a reprint or online. It’s a great question and thanks for bringing it up Josh!

    LOL  I guess I was half-right.  And half-wrong but in a funny way.  I love being wrong like this!

    holy ****, that looks awesome! 
    One thing to note, the formatting for the archetype stats changed a little - take a look at my sample example and you'll see that the code doesn't match up with the instructions below it...you basically just need to add a section in for the Brawn, Agility, Willpower etc labels underneath

    Here is the current version - there are still some tweaks that need to be made here and there but it is mostly finished. i'm not planning to run a game in terrinoth at the moment so it hasn't been a high priority - if anybody else wants to finish up what I started you're welcome to
    you'll need to download the fonts "ESL Ancient" and "Bolton" for it to appear correctly - those are free fonts available online. the other two fonts the genesys book uses are not free so i imported similar looking fonts from google web fonts for those. if it gets finished and you want to have iveld add it as a theme in genesys he should be able to upload esl ancient and bolton to his server so everybody doesn't have to download it
     
    also note a lot of the text in the document is not relevant 'cause i just modified the original genesys one without updating the actual content lol. there are for example, tables and bulleted lists inside of notes which the genesys book does not use, and the statblock instructions don't match up for how i had to rework them

    Thanks saethone! I'll give it a look. 
    For anyone else playing along, you want JSL Ancient not ESL Ancient

    I've already got one that's roughly ready but it's significantly more complex than the first book due to the way the note blocks are styled. if anybody's interested in testing it out i can give you the code

    The exp exp you get from your archetype/species does not count, but the 50 extra starting exp does. Read the “advancing heroic abilities” section - I think that’s where it explains it

    In most cases I wouldn’t start with an attribute at 5 - work your way toward the dedication talent instead to cap it off. Sometimes it could be worthwhile though - for example a shorter campaign where you may not make it that far
