  1. It is probably some deep Orlanthi Traditions, disguised as a quaint backwoods dance., the Spiral representing Storm, or rather Air.
  2. When I played D&D, Paladins were notoriously thick. "Now that we have captured some goblins, we need to question them. Paladin, why don't you go off and keep watch, to make sure their friends don't sneak up on them?" "What, and leave them with you for you to torture, no way!" "What do you mean, we don't torture anyone, we just want to question them, so go off out of earshot" "OK!"
  3. You and your swords. Regarding the stunt, if a GM can think of a good reason why it should apply to other weapons, then go for it. Having watched a good few series of Erugrul:Resurrection, I can think of loads of places where they used scimitars and daggers to cut the throats of their enemies, in combat, so the Stunt would be a good way of achieving that. I agree that an Irish Flail has absolutely no finesse, so the stunt would not necessarily be applicable.
  4. Your Base SR is your DEX Strike Rank + SIZ Strike Rank. These are given in the Strike Rank tables on p 57 of the RQG Rulebook. Your final Strike Rank with a weapon is your Base SR + Weapon Strike Rank. Weapon strike ranks are given in the RQG Rulebook on p 208-209, they don't include Bite, but all natural Weapons are SR4, including Bite. Most natural weapons have a weapon Strike Rank of 4. In a Bestiary, Strike ranks normally use average characteristics. So, in the examples given: Giant Antlions have SIZ 3D6+12 (Average 22-23) and DEX 1D4+4 (Average 6-7), this gives a SIZ SR of 0 and a DEX SR of 4, so a Base SR of 4. It uses a Bite, with a weapon SR of 4, so the final Strike Rank is 8. Guard Beetles have SIZ 3D6+6 (Average 16-17) and DEX 2D6 (Average 7), this gives SIZ SR 1 and DEX SR 4, so a Base SR of 5. It uses a Bite, with a weapon SR of 4, so the final Strike Rank is 9.
  5. I think she did. That is what she gained on the Hill of Gold.
  6. A potion of teleport allows you to teleport somewhere, that is quite useful. A Disc of teleport allows someone who stands on the disc to be Teleported somewhere. Where have I heard that before?
  7. She could have a darkness mother, wife of Valind, maybe a daughter of Himile. Who is Valind's mother? Might also be a darkness deity, perhaps another daughter of Himile.
  8. I thought I could hear the curious tone Of the cornet, clarinet and big trombone Fiddle, 'cello, big bass drum Bassoon, flute and euphonium Far away, as in a trance I heard the sound of the Spiral Dance As I walked home on a Summer night When stars in Heav'n were shining bright Far away from the footlight's glare Into the sweet and scented air Of a quaint old Lunar town Borne from afar on the gentle breeze Joining the murmur of the northern sea Distant tones of an old world dance Played by the village band perchance On the calm air came floating down I thought I could hear the curious tone Of the cornet, clarinet and big trombone Fiddle, 'cello, big bass drum Bassoon, flute and euphonium Far away, as in a trance I heard the sound of the Spiral Dance I heard the sound of the Spiral Dance And soon I heard such a bustling and prancing And then I saw the whole village was dancing In and out of the houses they came Old folk, young folk, all the same In that quaint old Lunar town Every boy took a girl 'round the waist And hurried her off in tremendous haste Whether they knew one another I care not Whether they cared at all, I know not But they kissed as they danced along And there was the band with that curious tone Of the cornet, clarinet and big trombone Fiddle, 'cello, big bass drum Bassoon, flute and euphonium Each one making the most of his chance All together in the Spiral Dance All together in the Spiral Dance Dancing here, prancing there Jigging, jogging ev'rywhere Up and down, and round the town Hurrah! For the Lunar Spiral Dance
  9. Belintar was formerly known as Pharaoh.
  10. For things like Alchemy and even Bionics, whether modern or steampunk Bionics, all you do, essentially, is to embody a power into an object or into a potion. So, a Healing Potion is just a Healing Power transferred to the potion.
  11. We used to play that it couldn't be used on one person, or just a group of people. Something like the temple of the Wooden Sword would count as a regiment for the purposes of Morale. Similarly, if a PC had a Humakti Battle Standard, then any Humakti following that PC would count as being a regiment for the purposes of Morale. A Humakti Hero Band, in HQ terms, would probably count as well.
  12. Q. Do I have the Gease "Never Ambush"? A. No Then I can Ambush, by definition.
  13. For a 1 point increase to INT or SIZ you get 2 geases. Yes. No limits means exactly that, no limits.
  14. There is at least one post here and maybe one on Facebook as well.
  15. Free, no, it always has a cost. You might be encouraging me to post more!
