Ultimate Grimoire... One letter at a time...

Re: Ultimate Grimoire... One letter at a time...

 

Ok, right off the bat something isnt coming out right

 

This spell allows the caster to make the victim feel as though he rested poorly the previous night. The victim will feel tired, move sluggishly and yawn continually.

 

Power: 1d6 Dex Drain

 

Specific Modifiers: Points return after 5 hours (+1), triggered by waking (+1/4); Can only be cast on sleeping target (-2).

 

Active Cost = 67 points. END Cost: 7; Magic Roll: -7; Casting Time: 1/2 Phase

 

The problem being its coming off way different when I plug it into HD2

 

Bad Night: Drain DEX 1d6, Trigger (Activating the Trigger requires a Zero Phase Action, Trigger requires a Turn or more to reset, Character does not control activation of personal Trigger; Triggered by Waking; +1/4), Delayed Return Rate (points return at the rate of 5 per 6 Hours; +1 1/4) (25 Active Points); Custom Modifier (can only be cast on a sleeping target; -2)

 

the active points are way off between the 2 versions

did things change that much between editions or did I miss something?

That IS odd...

 

I think Drain used to cost more... a lot more.

 

Use 5E rules, obviously.

 

Oh, and I've named the file "Ultimate Grimoire - A" though a shorter name like UGA, UGB or something might work better...

 

Or maybe, just to annoy Steve Odekirk...

If I were to make a simple guess, it is because somebody simplified 3d6 of DEX "points" drained as 1d6 of "DEX" drained. That changes the base cost from 10 to 30, and is where you get 67 AP. This used to be very commonly done in older material. A 10d6 drain speed would be written up as 1d6. This saves a lot of dice rolling, but added the difficulty of making you read the fine print to understand what the power REALLY was.
