Adventures Going Out

Rules Issues

  1. Blowgun has no damage and notes which say: * The damage done by a blowgun dart depends upon the substance which coats the tip. This needs to change to the same as venomous animals, which have damage that only applies for purposes of bypassing armour. Suggest: add damage -3 and change notes to "If a blowgun dart does any effective damage, the damage is not scored against their victim but rather they suffer the effects of the substance which coats the tip." Vote: Yea 8 Nay 0 Abstain 1
  2. Spy/stealth: the spy skill used to give 2% per rank. The change to spy changed it to 1% per rank. The text in stealth has not changed. Pick one. Vote: 1% 0 2% 9 Abstain 1
  3. I suggest that the method of not applying rule changes until a printed version comes out is too conservative/old fashioned. How about changes apply immediately, and we keep an up to date wiki page, an updated errata pdf and updates are made to pdfs available online. Kelsie volunteers to do it to start with. Vote: Yea 8 Nay 1 Abstain 1
  4. Out of College Counterspells - Are they General or Special Knowledge? The main impact is the mana cost to cast. I can see no specific reference in the rule book, with the following snips being as close as it gets:
"Adepts learn both Counterspells of their own college as part of their General Knowledge.
Characters may learn Counterspells from colleges other than their own. The Counterspells of other colleges are practised at Rank 0 and may not be ranked."
Dean inferred that all counters are Generals, while Stephen has inferred that out of college equals Special. Pick one. Vote: General 1 Special 7 Abstain 2
