    4E Quick 4e Essentials Question...

    The age range also indicates what sort of safety testing has been done. If you have smallish pieces & don't feel like testing to see what kind of cancers ingesting the product can give you it ups your age range. This matters less on book aisles but more in toys.

    4E The divine beings for my 4E setting

    I like that all of the angels are attempting redemption - more or less - but that some are simply far less zealous about it than others. It gives the 'wicked gods' trope a lot more traction if their wickedness isn't in what they do so much as that they refuse to do it well or in a beneficial...

    Bec de Corbin and other Blunt Polearms

    After a certain degree of struggle/negotiation my DM and I have agree to try and come up with some blunt pole-arms. Here's the baseline he has proposed: Lucerne Hammer (Martial)(2 handed)(Hammer and Pole-arm) +2 Attack 1d6 Damage, Reach and High Crit Bec De Corbin (Martial)(2 Handed)(Hammer...

    Well, in theory, you will eventually get an Elementalist power source and those dudes will have some pretty great antipathy against the arcanists of Zhakara. That said, you just introduce a Paragon path for Elementalists or - maybe more interestingly - a Warlock pact for people who throw souls...

    Well, we've already discussed some of this, and I think the general consensus is that the 'Breaking of the Seals' disrupted magic, but didn't necessarilly radically reorganize it from the average Zhakaran's perspective. All you need to do for any of the themes of magic you want to preserve for...

    By all means - work on what interests you and we can all compare notes - but there's still organization to be done before we could really start delegating tasks.

    Further making kits into something equivalent to Background feats prevents us from having to come up with new kits for the new classes. And in at least one case the new classes will help to save us some kit building. Avengers are so clearly Holy Slayers that I think - in that case - there is...

    Sure, I just thought that working through the template would provide us with a conceptual refresher. On that point: what if we retooled the Background Features to make them about Station rather than geography and then used that to simulate most of the kits. The feat section could then expand...

    So, a question: We've now seen a complete campaign world work up for FR in the campaign guide and player's guide. Using that as a template how would we fill out a shorter version for Al-Quadim assuming we got permission to do a Net-Book or something? Let's do the Player's Guide first...

    4E Homebrew setting I'll use for 4e

    This may sound like an odd referent, but... ...you should check out Mouse Guard. It's a comic about intelligent mice who have a culture in the middle ages. There are no people simply intelligent mice and intelligent weasels. A major theme of the work is that even though the Mice are...

    Well, the law is the law. I don't know that the great unbinding is going to cause a religious crisis unless a bunch of enlightened gods start going down as a result of the crisis. Zhakara's meta-religion seems petty resilient. I think the new action in the deserts is going to be pretty big...

    Help with 2 Handed Khopesh

    For various reasons I need stats for a two-handed Khopesh. Now the original weapon is: So to make it two handed would I just up the damage to 1d10? The other option would be to just take a Falchion (2d4 dam, +3 prof, high crit, heavy blade), drop the proficiency bonus to +2, swap the high...

    Hooo, that's right we have the PHB2 classes to contend with now. Divine: Invoker Avenger Arcane: Bard Sorceror Primal: Barbarian Druid Shaman Warden Hmm, I think most of them could be integrated. What I think is going to be most interesting, however, is accounting for the whole Primal power...

    Actually, all of the above are awesome. Any modifications I wanted to make to that I know rescind. Instead. The war between the Ghul and the Jann is the cause of the West's devastation. Whole tribes have been turned into Tieflings or Genasi as a result of the conflict as well.

    So here's an idea: Multi-Class Feat - Beloved of Fate. You gain training in Religion. Once per encounter you may use the evil eye power. Evil Eye - Encounter - Divine - Immediate Interupt. You may apply a -2 modifier to an attack or skill roll made by another character. This penalty...

    4E Thought Project: 4E As Science Fantasy...

    I've been working on something similar called Terrahausen, which is literally a campaign setting based on the works of Ray Harryhausen. So there's: The Scheherazans - A Sinbad nation. The Gwangi - Cavemen The Vrykang - Vikings - there's no Harryhausen connection there it's just cause The...

    Right, I'm working on this and here's what I've got so far: 1.) There are three basic nomad geo-cultural areas: The East, The West, and The North. 2.) The West here the breaking of the seals has had two main effects: the first is ecological weirdness and the second is the rise of two...

    I'm still very interested. My semester is about to get heavy, but that won't last too long. And I could really use some side writing projects now. For the moment, I'm working on a world that riffs of Ray Harryhausen's work and will be using an adapted version of Al-Quadim - smaller and...
