    Graphics for Sorcerer Techniques

    I have seen and downloaded graphics that someone has created for all of the Runes, they are great. But I can not seem to find graphics for the 6 Sorcerer Techniques (Command, Combine, Dispel, Separate, Summon, and Tap). Does anybody know if those exist somewhere? Thanks Toad

    Humakt's Gift of Weapon Blessing

    OMG that is hilarious. The story I read was most likely written with those rules in mind, but I have never seen them myself. Thanks for the link, I can not wait to use this in my campaign. I am still curious about the nature of a blessed weapon though, is it considered enchanted/magical? I would think so. Cheers, Toad

    Humakt's Gift of Weapon Blessing

    I read a story once, somewhere forgotten, about a bunch of newly initiated knuckle-head Humakti who decided to use their blessed gifts all on the same weapon. In effect this blessed a single sword with double damage, enhanced hit points, and the such... then they all fought each other to win the right to possess it. This started my brain thinking... First off, is a weapon blessed with Humakt's gift considered enchanted and thus magical? And secondly can a Humakti Blessed weapon be transferred? What happens to that weapon when the Humakti dies, riddled with broo arrows or lured into drinking poison laced ale from a not so friendly Eurmal trickster? Can the broo then pick up and use that weapon with all of its blessings? Can the Eurmal trickster? If it was initially, is it still an enchanted weapon? What if it is picked up (retrieved) by a fellow Humakti, will it retain its blessings? Toad

    Why bind a spirit?

    Hi All, I am putting on my evil enchanter hat for this question... In the RQG book it states that for enchanting an object "The POW sacrificed for the enchantment does not have to be provided entirely by the enchanter; if the enchanter sacrifices at least 1 point of their own POW, others can voluntarily contribute to the sacrifice, with no limit." Can you command a bound spirit to sacrifice its own POW for this purpose? Or would the 'voluntarily' qualifier preclude this? Toad
  8. Yes, that is something I would have done to my players. Epic.

    New RQ design questions

    Very good points. I think sometimes I get too fixated on crunch, especially when setting up overland maps on Roll20 so that measurements are accurate and usable. I will assume measurements will be the same as RQ2.

    New RQ design questions

    Will movement and measurement of distances be based in Metric or US Standard? Feet/Miles fit better for the anachronistic setting but Metric seems to be used more often than not for most RQ versions.
