Electrum pieces

Electrum is a (naturally-occurring) alloy of gold and silver. It seems odd to have its coins worth 10x as much as gold (p56). I can see characters trying to make a mint out of this...

Re: Questions on Unarmed attacks

I have a player who's keen to use cestus(es), that is the Roman pugilist's metal-studded gloves. My thoughts were that these would add 1 to harm bonus to the boxer, allow parrying or deflection (knuckledusters would be no good, but gloves or gauntlets are big enough), but not the Martial Arts abilit...

Re: It happens to everybody

Ah well, it just goes to show. The gaming industry should really face up to this blot on the escutcheon and hire professional editors (such as myself) at highly rewarding rates...
