  1. One of my players sent me this... "Another good defense against arrows is a shield. Shields were used by archers and varied from the small Arabic round shield on the bow arm to the large Assyrian wicker shields carried by a shield bearer or the pavise of the crossbowman. The archer's arm shield is an excellent defense. You can use it to actively block arrows, and sometimes it will manage to block arrows you did not see. But in light battles(they are not allowed in mixed battles) it is limited to fifteen inches in diameter and must be marked with the light fighters device, so as not to be mistaken for a heavy's shield. Basically a 15" round shiled on bow arm? what do you think?" I think it sounds like a +1 dcv shield, requiring sheild skill, while firing with bow. opinions?
  2. Re: Help with A Spell nice job.
  3. Re: The fear of fire and gas bombs. heheheh fry'em up. human=long pig? ever hear that reference?
  4. Re: The fear of fire and gas bombs. Well perhaps I am wrong but I see fire as penetrating because armor doesnt completely cover you except for maybe full plate or a clean suit made of fire proof canvas. I know you can see people running thru fire blazes in the movies but well heck, thats what we heroes live for
  5. Re: The fear of fire and gas bombs. thats a bit too complicated. something simpler?
  6. I had an epiphany... put the fear of fire back into the game. Make it d6 killing penetrating for any one stopping in it. same thing for a poison gas bomb continuous 2 minutes... ls:breathing or ?... take damage!!!! How long can you hold yer breath? those with high speeds take damage faster how does one hold breath or save versions poison gas?
  7. Re: Potion and items You might want to look at killer shrikes thesis and options on Ephemeral magic. It covers disposable magic items. Ive decided to use it a form of it and comments from others Rune Science
